1 r-,n h.RRIqos' address on a similar occa-l

friend of the!
2uhdi has not recently referred to Har--stsas's
Inaugural, or he would have discovered
that his taste was somewhat inspired by the
nariv enthusiasm of the occasion, and that a
perusal of it now would dissiaate the roseate
views of that period of hard cider, coon
sttasaBd log cabins. Gen. Habfisox was a
l-inrf.h,rta ra-. hot rerr much out of place
in the President's chair. Mr. Buchanan Is

The EatU and Enqairtr, In its brief and curt
review of the PreeMent's Inaucural. has not
. t ,!.
oae word to say aoit squatter sovereignly.--
" Where now be your gibes and jests," neigh
bor ? Have yc adopted the policy of the sen
timestal lover, and are you ready to exclaim
' Oh, ae I I Bcrtr mratlrn 11.'
The EatU, moreover, has not one word of I
ejection to the Inaugural itself or any of its
sentiments. It cannot oppose a line or sylla-
bla ot the context. It cannot criticise tne
ttrle. In brief, it Is dumb-foundered. The
la&Hgtiral furnishes rresh anecdetical "light-
Bisg" for the Eagle, and gives it a taste of the
difference between the fluid itself and the thun-
ierwhick is the mere symbol of it. It need
pet hereafter go to the bar for illustrations of
the erencs between the two. It has evi-
deatir been "struck" itself and can now speak
eiperlEeaially upon the subject. Its cliff has
beea rived by the destroying element and its
rrie destroyed. And in the bitterness of itsdes-
pair, it exclaims, " the Deril ca quote Scripture I
to Ms purpose," thus admitting that Mr. Be-1
chanan has promulgated the true political gos-
Trae, neighbor, Bock talks very fair and J
very well, and whether you trust his "cheap
words" or not, there are millions of hearts that
leap with thaiasm st his frank and manly
-avowals of the true political " scriptwe," who
de eBtettain a fixed faith and firm confidence in
bis " professions," and who will never be dis
i.ppe4ated. They moreover believe that " the
( Devil" was chained for at least a thousand
years when Buchanan was victorious, and
tbat tbe reign of peace has commenced at last.
It was "the Devil," we are told by the great
Epic, who squatted as a toad at the ear of our
le-vely and innocent first parent and whispered
evil dreaas to mislead her. The spear of the
briglit-wiBged Ithunel touched the venomous
Boaster and transformed him into his own ugly
and terrible shape. What party was it that
' whispered false tales into the ears of our coun
try about its wonderful strength to overcome
the fee! demon of Black Jlepublicanism? And
what shining spear laid bare the falsehood?
In one sense Bochanan has played "the very
Devil," if we may be excased for a vulgarism.
Let the "ducks" of Xnow-Nothingism and
Black Republicanism say when.
The EagU talks aboat getting out the " long
gnas " and running up " the old stars and
stripes," because it does not trust Mr. Bu
chanan's "empty profession." Notv we do
tfeiav tbe Eagle ought not to be so "flighty "
about nothing. If the President's professions
are good, justice, fair-dealing, honest advice to
the people and common sense would all teach
that his enemies should wait and see whether
he faMHs them. Let a man have a fair chance
eres if he is a Democrat, a Sag-Nicht, or an'
ether hard name the Eagle may choose to call
him. " Give even the Devil his due, " is an old
bt safe maxim.
By the way, we take the privilege to suggest
that the Eagle will never be able to dimage
- "Old Bncz"by calliBghim hard names. Epi
thets never killed a great man, nor damaged
even a small one. They are not "long guns,"
nor even a pocket pistol in a contest against an
Administration which commends itself to the
" Union-loving " people by such noble, lofty and
wise sentiments and such sound doctrines as
the President's Inaugural contains.
A history and life such as Jaxes Buchan
an's requires something more than such wea
pons as these to make an impression or leave
a scar upon his unblemished reputation.

these are the tactics by which they attempt to

Although I could not get within hearing dis
tance of the new President, I observed that his
Inaugural wa3 received with frequent shouts
of applause from those who were in his imme
diate vicinity j- This mueh is certain, however,
from all I have observed here, that he comes
.into office with the hopes and good wishes of a
large majority of the American people. It
really seems here at Washington, just nowJ
that there is an era of good feeling. The bril
liancy of the honors shown to the in-eoming
President, is only equalled by the cordial fare
wells given to the out-going. The last levee of
Mr. PiERCD,held last Friday night, and his last
reception, held yesterday, were remarkable for
tbe immense numbers that attended them. No
President ever left Washington with the more
hearty good wishes of her people. What is a
little remarkable, he was last Sabbath, in th
Presbyterian church, made one of the topics of
discourse in a sermon of great beauty, force
and elegance. His exemplary life, while Pre
sident, has won npon all classes.
As an additional evidence of the esteem in
which he is held here, the city authorities
waited upon him yesterday, to take a formal
parting adieu. When the President entered
East room, the Mayor addressed him at fol

In reply, the President spoke substantially
as follows :
Ma. Mayor : I receive with unaffected grat
ification this demonstration of sentiments of
good will toward myself on the part of the
city autnorities and people of wasuington.
About one-nan of tbe rears of my mannood
have been passed here, and the experience of
eacn year nas only served to ennance my ap
preciation of tbe admirable qualities which
characterize the permanent population of the
District, ft o man can notice me quiet or a
Sabbath in this city, and the evidence on all
hands of its sacred observance, without being
impressed by the conviction that he is among
a people remarkable fortheir Intelligence, or
der, probity, and high moral worth. Here I
have shared largely in a generous hospitality,
have made many valued acquaintances, and
formed friendships which I trust may be as
lasting as my life.
Uuder the circumstances it would be strange
Indeec it I could regard with anything but
lively interest whatever is calculated to pro
mote your happiness, and advance your sub
stantial prosperity. Here among your resident
citizens, every section of our common country
is repreieoteu ; and they are fortunately ha
bitually free from tbe influences of discord or
alienation. Here, the love of this blessed
Union and the spirit of toleration, which ever
animated the founder of the city, and tbe
Father of bis Country have never grown cold.
As tne seat or government and centre ortue

tion the career which I see before you.
There are certain great improvements, tbe
completion of which I earnestly desired to
witness during my cmeiai term. 1 trust iney

Providence permit ne to visit you hereafter, I
hope to find gushing fountains from the Great
Falls ot tne rotomae, everywhere in yourcuy
springing up and sparkling in the sunlight, and
represent'ng, in their native purity and abun
dance, vour moral health and social prosperity.
I desire to express, ror -ftirs. -fierce anu my
self, the assurance of our regret at parting with
friends who have established claims for our
grateful remembrance, which we shall never
cease to remember.
Not only has Mr. Pierce himself won pon
the people, but bis Administration is regarded
here as one of the best since the organization
the government. It is a striking fact,
that his is the only administration in which
there has been no change of the Cabinet, either
death, removal or resignation. It has
been a unit throughout, and to quiet the tongues
of cavillers and calumniators, it may be well
enough right here to introduce an article from
the A'aftonol JnWIigcer of this morning:
Rut. however xreat mar bs the diversity of
judgment respecting the policy of its particular
measures, an win conccue iu we iciuiuc Ad
ministration, as a whole, the merit of industry
and fidelity in the discharge of ite ministerial
duties. Iu this respect it way safely challenge
comparison with any that has preceded it The
bead of eacn uepartment seems to nave vieu
with his colleagues in giving to his particular
branch of tbe General Government all tho ef
ficiency which talent, aided by untiring assidui
ty, could effect Where each has thus done bis
duty with such commendable diligence, it would
bs invidious to indulge in special praise; and
If tho same measure of success has not attend
ed the efforts of all, the blame should perhaps
be assigned to the intractable nature of certain
administrative details, which afford a very
wide margin for unavoidable grounds of com
plaint on the part of those who fail to consider
the thousand-fold contingencies to which such
a service is subjected.
"While the logic of the s'gacious and expe
rienced Seeretarv of State uiav have failed in
a few ease to convince us, we yield to none in
a high appreciation of tbe general conservatism
and statesmanlike ability he has always
brought to the conduct of the correspondence
which he has held with foreign Governments.
Without detracting aught from the honor due to
the President for his part in directing those im
portant negotiations, we may yet be pardoned
in expressing tbe opinion that much of the suc
cess of his Administration in its management
of our foreign relations deserves to be attribu
ted to bis trusted and trusty Secretary of State.
And if the bead ot each of the other Depart
ments may ba truly said to have rivaled in hisJ
respective spnere ot auiies toe zeai anu auuuy
of the Foreign Secretary, it is perhaps not too
much to affirm that the learned and lnderatiga
ble Attorney General of the retiring Ministry
has organized the administrative duties of his
office, thus rendering more easy the cireer of
his successor, not only by the clean docket he
transmits, but also by the systematizing genius
which has enabled him to define the boundaries
of bis province, with all its subdivisions and
"As that praise Is always most valuable
which proceeds from those best qualified to
judge ot the grounds on which it is conferred,
we need but allude to the confidence which the
business men of tbe country have steadily re
posed in the out-going Secretary of the Treasu
ry as constituting in itself strong testimony to
the intelligence and fidelity with which he has
performed the intricate and responsible func
tions of his office ; while to the pertonntl of the
Ainy and of the Navy tbe Secretaries of these
Departments may safely appeal for the general
plaudit, which forms the best reward of official
station. If the Secretary of the Interior and
the Postmaster General have had a wider con
itituency to manage and please, we art sure
they have none the lessor leesjusily earned
the approbation of those entitled to sit in judg
ment on their labors.
" When the Roman Emperor whose name has
come in aftertimes to designate the palmiest
days of national greatness was about to depart
from tbe stag of action, h turned to inquire
of bis courtiers if be had played wall his part ;
and, being answered in tne affirmative, expired
with the simple request upon his lips, 'Then
give me your applause !' That which, in his
case, was but the inspiration of imperial pride,
the ruling passion strong in death, deserves
among us to be the voluntary homage which
tbe citizens nf a Republic may pay to tbe faith
ful servants of tbe National Commonwealth;
and, so far as it is due to those who are now
about to resign their public trusts, we cheerful
ly unite with tboBe of our fellow-citizens who
are ready to accord to them that tribute."
A higher compliment no out-going Admin
istration ever received. The fact is, it will be
a long time before we shall have another
Franklin Pierce in the Chair of State. He
is the noblest Roman of them all, and it will
do my soul good if experience shall prove that
Mr. Buchanan is equal to him.
Availing ourselves yesterday of an offer
from our former Congressman, we accepted
Mr. Stanton's invitation to "go round "and
see the new President We called and were
very graciously received as the delegation from
Tennessee. We had but a few moments to
spend, ot course, but Lwill be pardoned in
saying that I was most agreeably surprised in
the personal appearance of the new President.
He is tall, robust; and by the way, one of the
best specimens of the genui homo that I ever
saw. He is over six feet high, with a propor
tionate build, having a lordly and a courtly air
that .makes one instinctively respect himself,
from the fact that he knows he is in the vicin
ity of an American. M
" Vice Versa." SIobton, of the If ebraalca

question of the election of the assistant Clerk
was called up the said rcrdant called out,
"Mr. Speaker," said he, "I move we rote

a roar not understanding what it meant, hi
turned to his rizht hand man and said : was not
that in order? I dont know anything about

Democratic Meeting in Attala. A por
tion of tbe Democracy of this county held a
meeting at Kosciusko on the 2J Inst., for the
purpose of appointing delegates to the Demo

ably addressed by Hon. O. R. Singleton, late

Senate of the United States.
The President pro Urn. of the Senate, says
the Union, of the 6tb, before pronouncing that
body adjourned on Wednesday morning last,
made the following brief but felicitous re
MR. MASON'S SPEECH.
Sewatoes: In closing, with you, the pre

all Senators my sincere acknowledgments for
the courtesy and f orbeSrance wnicn nave mark

It remains only to declare that the Senate
stands adjourned without day.
Soon after 'he adjournment, the Senate as

whereupon be took tbe chair, and addressed

Jilt. BRECKINRIDGE'S SPEECH.
Senators: In assuming the duties of this
station, I am quite conscious that I bring to
their discharge few other qualifications than a
deep sense of the importance ot this body in
tbe scheme of the government and a feeling of
respect for its memberr.
Happily, my duties are comparatively few
and simple; and I am, sure they will be made
easy by a prevailing sense of propriety, which
will of itself be sufficient on all occasions to
preserve the nity and decorum of the Sen
ate. In administering the rules which you have
adopted for the convenience of your proceed
ings, I shall often nee I your kind indulgence,
and I anticipate with confidence your forbear
ance towards the errors that spring from inex
perience. Cherishing the hope that our official
and personal intercourse will be marked by
mutual confidence and regard, I look forward
with pleasure to our association in tbe perfor
mance of public duties.
It shall be my constant aim, gentlemen of
the Senate, to exhibit at all times, and to every
member of this body, the courtesy and impar
tiality which is due to tbe representatives of
Supreme Court cf the United States.
Upon the opening of the court of Wednesday
last, Mr. Attorney General Cushing addressed
the court as follows :
Mat it Please Your Hoxoas : I beg leave
to submit a motion as to the public business
the dismissal of certain appeals specified in the
It is tbe last official act which it will have
devolved upon me to perform.here as the rep
resentative of the United States. It is due to
this court, and it is due also to my own feelings,
not to cease to appear before you in my official
capacity without the utterance of a few appro
priate words of parting salutation.
Your honors sit here to administer justice in
its highest seats, having no array of martial
force around you, no authority of executive
power, no supreme legislative control dver the
treasures or tbe political direction of the af
fairs of the Union. Yours is. not the gaunt
leted hand of the soldier, nor yours the voice
which commands armies, rules cabinets, or
leads Senates. Rut, though you are none ot
these, yet you are backed by all of them.
Theirs is the external power which sustains
your moral authority; you are the incarnate
mir.d of the political body of the nation. In
the complex institutions of our country you
are the pivot point upon which the rights and
liberties of all, government and people alike,
turn; or rather you are the central light of
constitutional wisdom around which they per
petually revolvr. Long may this court retain
the confidence of our country as the great con
servators, not of the private peace only, but of
tbe sanctity and integrity of the Constitution!
As tbe supreme appellate tribunal of the coun
try, your honors possess not only its loyal ac
ouiescence in you jtidcmenrs, nut the deference
for them which follows a long line of illustri-
ous magistrates, from the Jays and the Elle -

who developed our federal system and our fed

the accumulated wisdom of a long life of
high duties to you I say, worthy successcrs of
the judicial fathers of the republic, our coun
try looks with undoubtlng confidence as the in
terpreters and the guardians of the organic laws
of the Union.
These are public considerations. It will not,
I trust, be deemed presumptuous in me to add
a personal remark ; which is, that I retire from
my place here with profound respect and with
grateful regatd for each one of your hon
ors. To which Mr. Cnief Justice Taney replied in
the following words :
Ms. Attorney General: I am Bure that I
express not only my own sentiments, but also
those of mv brethren, when I say that we shall
cherish with pleasure the recollection of tbe
kind feelings which have existed -between
ua during the whole time of our official con
nexion with the court and we shall at all times

Some of tbe slateinents going to show tbe enor
mous extent of canals already finished or in
progress, designed to irrigate the dry portions
of the country, and the amount of capital in
vested, are almost incredible. In Columbus
county, for instance, there are five vater cam
pinies, each of fvhich has a capital of at least
$250,000 the largest having $550,000 and the
length of canal varies from twenty-seven to
sixty miles. Besides these, there are in the
country some ten or twelve other companies,
witn uttcnea varying irein two to niteen miles
in lengtbt in Shasta county, there arc et
least eighty in operation, some of which cost
$jU,uuu, and are dependent upon snows in the
mountains for their supply of water. In Ne
vada, there are now over seven hundred piles
of canals and ditches, costing not less than
$5,000,000, and more are being added. Still,
there is a large area of ricb ground in that part

canals, witn an aggregate or oae hundred ami

wholly owned by the miners themselves, or

The importance of these works to the dry die-
