In entering upon this m-eat office I must

What a happy conception, then,
was it for Congress to apply this rule, that
the will of the . majority nhall govern in
the settlement of the question of domestic
slavery in the Territories. Congress is
neither to legislate slavery into any Ter
rilorjr or State, nor to exclude it therefrom
but to leave the people iheref perfectly

I nder our systei.i there is a remedy for
all mere po'iiical evils iu the sound sense
and sober judgement of the people. Time
is a great corrective.
The political subi-i ts, which but a few
years ngo excited and exasperated the pub
lic mind, have pushed away and are now
nearly forgotten. Hut this question of
domestic slavery is of far greater impor-
lance than any mere political question, be

In administering this important trust,
whilst 't may be wise to grant portions of
them for the improvement of the remain
der, yet we should never forget thai il is
our cardinal policy o reserve these lands
as much as may be for actual settlers, and
this at moderate prices. We shall thus not
only best promote the prosperity of the
new Slates by furnishing them a hardy
and independent race of honest and in
dustrious citizens, but shall serine homes
for our children and our children's chil
dren, os well nsfor those exiled from for-
ei'Mi shores who may seek in this country
to improve their condition and to enjoy the
blessing of civil and religions lilei iy.
Such emigrants have done much to pro
mote tho growth and prosperity of the
country 1 hey have proved faithful lmth

stitution and laws to be placed on a per

in this character they should ever be kind
Ihe rederal Constitution is a "rant
from the States to Congress of certain
specific powers and tho question whether
this gi nnl shall Le liberally and strictly
construed, has more or less divided polit
ical parties from the beginning, vi ithout
entering into he argument, I desire to
stale, at tho commencement of my ndiniiv
istration, that long experience and obscr
vation has convinced me that n strict con
struction oi the powers ot the govern
ment is the only true, as well as the only
safe theory of the Constitution. When
ever, in our past history, doubtful powers
have been exercised by Congress, they
have never failed to produce injurious and
unhappy consequences. Many such instan
ces miuht be adduced it this wero the
proper occasion. Neither is il necessary
for the public service to strain the lan
guage of the Constitution, because all the
great and useful powers required for the
successful udiniui'tration of the govern
ment, both in peace or in war, have been
granted, either iu express terms or by the
plainest implication. Whilst deeply con
vinced of these truths, I yet consider it
clear, that under the war-making power
Congress may appropriate money towards
the construction of a military road, when
this is absolutely necessary for the d
fence of any state or Territory of the Un
ion against foreign invasion.
Under the Constitution Congress has
iKiwer to declare war, to raise and sup.
port armies, to provide and maintain a
navy and to call forth the militia to rep
invasion. Thus endowed in an ample
manner with a war making power, the
corresponding duty is required thai the
United States chall protect earh of the
States against invasion. How is it pos.
bible to allord this protection to Culiforniu
aud our l'acific posessions except bv
will attempt todispute. In short we ought
to-do justice in a kindly spirit to nil nations
and require justice from them in return.
It is our glory that while other nations
have extended their dominions by the
sword, we have never acquired any Ter
ritory except by fair purchase, or as in
case of Texas, by the voluntary determin
ation of a brave, kindred and independant
people to blend their destinies ; with our
own. Kveii our 'acquisitions from Mexico
form no ex Tption. Unwilling to la ;e uu-
intagu of the fortune of war against a
sister -Kepi! iblie, W4 purchased these pos
sessions under the treaty of peace for u
sum which was considered at the time a
tJurpast history forbids thai we snail
in the future acquire territory unless this
be sanctioned by the laws of justice and
honor. Acting on this principle no nation
will have a right to interfere or to com-
lain of the progress of events. We shall
still further extend our possessions.
Hitherto m nil our acquisitions, the peo
ple, under the protection of the A me ican
flag have enioyed civil und religious liber
ty, as well us equal and just laws, and
have been contented, prosperous and hap
py. Their trade with the rest of the world
lias rapidly increased, and thus every com
mercial nation has shared largely in their
succe:..iful progress. I shall now proceed
to take the oath prescribed by the Consti
tution, whilst humbly invoking the bless
ings of Divino Providence on this great

comparative injuries which such an event
would inllict on other Suites and sections;
even defending to this low and narrow
view of the mighty question. All itch
calculations are at fault. The Iwre refer
ence to a single consideration will be con
clusive on this point. We at present en
joy a free trade throughout our extensive
and expansive country, such as the world
never witnessed. This trade is conducted
on Railroads and Canals, on the noble
rivers and arms of the sea which bind to
gether tho north and the south, the east
and the west of our confederacy. Anni
hi'ate this trade, arrest its free progress
by geographical lines of jealous and hos
ti.e States, and you destroy the prosperity
and onward march of the whole and every
part, and involve all in one common ruin.
Bu. such considerations, important as they
are in themselves, sink into inoignificrt nre
when we reflect on the terrific evils which i means of military roads through the ter
would result from disunion to every por-! ritories of t ie United States over which
tion of ihe confederacy, to tho north not I men and munitions of war tuny be speed
more than the south, to the east nol more ! ily transported from the Atlantic Suites
than the west. Th?se I shall not attempt to meet aud renul the invader? In cns
to portray, because I feel und humble con- 1 of a war w ith a naval power stronger than
fidenre that the kind providence which j our own we's'iould have no other avuila
inspired our fathers with wisdom to frame j Lie access to the Pacific coast, because
the most perfect form of goverment und , such a power would instantly cl se the
union ever devised by man, will not snf- route acM.-sthe Isthmus of Central Ainer-
