Breaking tho Nows to Gen. Arthur Tak
ing the Oath Graphio Description by
an Intor Ocean Eoportor Tho In
augural at the Oapitol.
There wero nine persons presout in
Gen. Arthur's parlors when ho took tho
oath of oillco this morning. They wero
friends of his who had been with him
during tho evening seeking to divert
his mind from the sad calamity that
was constantly in his thoughts. The
bulletins in tho latter part of the even
ing had been so reassuring that there
was something like hopefulness in the
feeling in the little gioup, although
nothing was said on the subject.
The llrst announcement of tho death
of the President came from a reporter
who called at the door. It was received
by all, and especially by (Jen. Arthur,
with incredulity. Hut a few minutes
later a telegram cam from Attorney
General MacVeagh. 'I'his continuation
of tho dreaded news led loan immedi
ate consultation as to the proper stops
to bo taken by Gen. Arthur. Owing to
h peculiar complication of circum
stances it was thought best that tho
oath of ollice should bo taken as soon
This determination was the result of
communications previously had be
tween General Arthur and members of
tho cabinet, and it had been understood
that in t he event of President Garfield's
death his suceessorshould bo sworn in
without any delay. At the time when
tho president was ho very low, two or
three weeks ago, J edge Hlatchford re
mained in town several days that he
might bo in readiness to administerthe
By the timo the oath had been writ
ton out by one of those present and a
little consultation had ended, a dispatch
from tho Cabinet came, making the re
quest that General Arthur take the
oath immediately. iSlilm Hoot and
Dr. P. C. Van Wyck started at once in
one cab, and District Attorney Hollins
and police commissioner French in an
other, to find a judge. The former re
turned shortly after o'no o'clock with
Justice Hrady, and then there whs a
short delay until the others came with
Justice Donahuo. As Justice Hrady
came llrst ho was asked to administer
Thoro wore then present in General
Arthur's parlors, besides himself and
his son Allan and those named above,
nnlv General Arthur's nrivato secre
tary, J. 0. Heed, making nino in all.
General Arthur and Justice Hrady
stood in tho center of the front parlor,
nnd tho others wore standing closely
around. It was a very striking scene
tho time of night intensifying tho im
presslvonoss that all other circum
stances gave to it, Gon. Arthur rose
from his seat in tho library and ad
iHmrmii tn tlm front nnrlor. It is a
l.trirn mom. The carpot is Boft andl
deep, and of a dark tint. Heavy cur
tains to match tho carpet bring from
tho largo French windows. Oil paint
ings by old masters hang from tho ceil
ings. Dispatches, books, and writing
materials wero scattored all over tho
large table that stands in the conter,
General Arthur stood behind thin table,
facing tho window. No had regained
his composure. Ilia eye was clear and
his manner dignitied. The gas in the
library was burning dimly, and his
line, tall form stood out grandly from
the dark background.
Old allegorical pictures loomed out
from tho darkness; pictures of con
quests and triumphs, of defeats and
despairs, and above all was a while
niarblo bust of Henry Clay. Judge
Hrady stood on tho other side of the
table, facing Gen. Arthur. Grouped
around the two men wero Judge Don
ahue, Kllhu Hoot, Commissioner
French, and Daniel G. Hollins, and
Gon. Arthur's son.
Judge Hrady slowly advanced a stop
and raised his right hand. General
Arthur did likewise. A moment of
impressive silence followed. General
Arthur's features wore almost llxed.
Then Judge Hrady administered tho
oath, when Arthur, speaking in a clear,
ringing voice, repeated: "I do solemnly
swear that I will faithfully execute
tho oillco of President of tho United
States, and will to the best of my abili
ty preserve protect, and defend the
Constitution of the United States."
After this he remained standing il
moment longer, his baud still raised.
No one spoke or moved.
Till! Ot'KlOVS CKOW1).
A crowd began to gather in front of
President Arthur's house at an early
hour in the morning, and this was in
creased as the day advanced. The
passageway from tho street to tho
house was kept oltfar by policemen.
Among the earliest eallors were Sec
retaries Hlaino and Lincoln. They
lelt Boston on the previous evening,
and, upon reaching this city tills morn
ing, without waiting for breakfast,
were driven at once to President Ar
thur's house. The meeting was a sor
rowful one. the new President mani
festing deep emotion. The Secretaries
were made acquainted with tho tact
that t!'o President intended to go to
Elberon by special train. Invitation
to accompany him was accepted.
.SKCON'D OATH AT THK CAPITA!..
This oath and proceeding were legal
and sulllcient so far as power and
authority in tho executive oillco is con
cerned. But as tho oath wiib adminis
tered by the judge of a State, any record
made of it would be of the State. Gon.
Arthur took the oath at the timo and
in the unusual manner he did, to meet
tho unprecedented emergency. There
fore upon arrival at "Washington Gen.
Arthur proceeded at once to conform
to tho established custom of inaugura
tion into tho presidential ollice, and to
take tho oath administered by a judge
of the United States, so that it might
bo oillcially illed with tho urohivoH of
the Nation at her capitol. This scene
at tho capitol is thus impressively do
Hcribed. Shortly boforo noon on tho 2'Jd, tho
Cabinet repaired to tho Capitol, and
proceeded to the room of tho Vice
President, adjoining tho Senate Cham
ber, and they were soon after joined by
a number oi Senators and Representa
tives. Ex-President Hayes ctmo in
almost immediately, accompanied by
Senator Sherman. Tho vonerablo Han
nibal Hamlin was there; also Senators
Hale, Blair, Garland, Dawes. Anthony,
and Edmunds, and Heprosontativcs
Haudall, Kasson, Thomas, George it.
Davis, Hiscock, McCook and Towns
bend. The only other person there bo
fore the Presidential party arrived was
ex-District Attorney Georgo Bliss, of
Now York. At a few minutes to 12,
President Arthur, accompanied by
General Grant, Senator .Jones, of Ne
vada, District Attorney Hollins, of
Now York, and tho President's Private
Secretary, Mr. Heed, entered tho room.
General Sherman, in full unifnrm.camo
about tho'samo time. Tho President
proceeded at once to take a position in
the middle of Mio room at tho north
end of tho marble tablo that stands in
the center, and awaited tho coming of
tho Judges of the Supremo Court. In
about ton minutes, the court having
been notilled, tho Chief Justice entered
tho room accompanied by Associate
Justices Matthews and Harlan, and
ex-Associato Justice Strong. The
Chief Justice was arrayed in thorobos
of office, but tho other Judges wero bu
citizens' dress. Tho gontlomon present,
who had remained standing, lormeu a
circle around the President, who stood
several feot in advancoand await wr the
beginning of tho ceremonies, which
wero very brief.

After tho Chlof Junticn and the as

him, had takon thoir positions, the
Clerk of tho Supremo Court, Mr. Mc
Klnney, ontorod carrying a Biblo,
which ho openod haphazard and hand
ed it to chief Justice Waite. Tho
President immediately placed his left
hand upon it with tho right uplifted.
Justice Waite proceeded to repeat tho
ordinary oath of ollice for President of
the United States, not reading it from
the Constitution, hut reciting it from
memory. Brcsidont Arthur responded
in a firm voice, "I do," and then, after
the silence of a moment, said, in a firm
and impressive voice, "So help mo God."
s ho said this he stooped and kiss
ed the open book.
THK PltKMIDKNT'S ADIHlKSr'.
"For the fourth time in tho history
of tlie republic its cliief Magistrate has
been removed by death. All hearts
are tilled witli grief ami horror at the
hideous crime which has darkened our
land, and tho memory of tho murdered
'President, his protracted Hiiiforings,
his unyielding fortitude, the examplo
and achievements of his life, and th
pathosof his death, will forever illum
ine tlvpsgos of our history.
"For" tub fourth timo the olllcor elect
ed by the people, and ordained by tho
Constitution, to till tho vacancy ho
created, is called to assume tho execu
tive chair. Tho wisdom of our fathers, '
foreseeing even tho most dlro possibili
ties, made sure that tho government
should never bo imperiled because of
the uncertainty of human life. Men
may die, but the fabrics of our free in
stitutions remain unshaken. No high
er or more assuring proof could exist
of the strength and permanency of
popular government than tho fact that,
though the chosen of the people bo
stricken down, his constitutional suc
cessor is peacefully installed without
shock or strain, except the sorrow
which mourns the bereavement. All
the noblo aspirations of my lamented
predecessor, which found expression
in his life; the measures devised and
suggested during his brief administra
tion to correct abuses and enforce
economy; to advance tho prosperity
and promote tho general welfare; to
insure domestic security, and maintain
friendly and honorable relations with
tho nations of tho earth, will bo garn
ered in tho
HKA11T8 OK THK PICOPI.K,
and it will bo my earnest endeavor to
prollt, and to see that the nation shall
profit, by his examplo and experience.
Prosperity blesses our country, our tls
cal policy, llxed by luSv, is well ground
ed and generally approved. No threat
ening issue mars our foreign inter
course, and tho wisdom, integrity, and
thrift of our people may bo trusted to.
continue undisturbed in tho present
assured career of peace, fraternity, and.
welfare. The gloom and anxiety
which havo enshrouded tho country
must make repose especially wolcomo
now. No demand for speedy legisla
tion has 1ieen heard; no adequate
occasion is apparent for an unusual,
session of Congress. The constitution,
defines the functions and powers of
the executive as clearly as those o
either of the other departments of the
government, and he must answer for
tho just oxerciso of tho discretion it
permits, and the performance of tho
duties it imposes. Summoned to those'
high duties and responsibilities, and
profoundly conscious of thoir magni
tude and gravity, I assume tho trust
imposed by tho constitution, relying
for aid on divine guidance, and tho
virtue, patriotism, and intelligence of:
tho American people."
When the distinguished gentlemen
who had witnessed tho ceremonies had
grasped the president's hand, congrat
ulating him on his vory felicitous mp
augural remarks, the Cabinet ofjlcors,,
by tho hand of Secretary Blauuot ten
dered thoir resignations, as Uv the ous-
torn when a now Executive taken tho
helm; butthoy wero uU Informally do-,
clinod, and tho President asked it as a
personal favor that the cabinet should,
continue, as they ace, at tho heads of
departments. Secretary Blaine assured
the President that he eould depend
upon them touse their best efforts to
tranqullize the couutr.y, and to.aid him
in thepocfocmancoof Ids duties in tho
present trying circumstances.. Of
ewnHo tho President, in. this hour of;
national grief, could not give a thought;
to the formation or reorganization of
Mb cabinet. What ho will do here
after may only be surmised.
