Inauguration of . President

New Administration Policy
The following ia a synopsis of the
President's Inaugural Address t
Fellow Citizens Under Providence
I have been called a second time to
act as executive over this great nation
It has been my endeavor in the past
to maintain all the laws and, sp far as
lay in my power, to act for the beet
internet &! j!ej$op. My beet
efforts will be given in the . aanie di
rection in the future, aided. I trust.
by iriy four years experience in the
When my first term of the office of
Chief Executive began tho country
had not recovered from the effects of
a great internal revolution, and three
of the former States of the Uuion had
not been restored to their federal rela
tions. It seemed to me wise that no
new questions should be raised so long
as that condition of affairs existed;
therefore, the fiast four years, so far
as I could control events, have been
consumed in the effort to restore bar
mony, r'iblio credit, commerce and all
the arts of peace and progress. It is
my hrtn conviction that the civilized
world is tending towards republican
ism, cr government by the people
through their chosen ri presentatives,
and that our own great republic is de
stined to be the guiding Etar to all
others. Under our republic we sup
port an army less than that of any
European power of any standing, and
a navy less than that of either of at
least five of them. There could be no
extension of territory on this conti
nent which would call for .an increase
of this force, but ather might such
extension enable us to diminish it.
The theory of government changes
with general progress. Now that the
telegraj h is made available for com
municating thought, together with
rapid transit by steam, a 1 parts of a
continent are made contiguous for all
purposes of government and communi
cation between the extreme limits of
the country made easier than it was
throughout the old thirteen States at
the beginning of our national existence.
Ihe effects of the late civil strife
have been to free the slave and make
the same a citizen : yet he is not pos-
oeased of th civil rights which citi-
zen snip snouia carry wun it,
wrong ana should be corrected, lo
this"correction I stand committed, bo
far as executive influence can avail.
Social equality is not a subject lo be
legislated upon, nor shall I ask that
anything be done to advacee the social
status of the colored man, except to
give him a fair chance to develop
what there is good in him. Give him
access to schools, and when he travels
let him feel assured that hfs conduct
ill regulat; the treatmeut he will re
The States lately at war with the
general government are now happily
rehabilitated and no executive control
is exercised in any cno of them that
would not be exercised in any other
State under the circumstances. .
In the first year of the past adminis
tration, the proposition came up for
the admission of San Domingo as a
territory of the Union.' It was not a
question of my seeking, but was a pro-
... n .i , t -
position irom me people or can ioov
ingo, which 1 entertained. I believe
now, as I did then, that it was for the
best interests of this country for the
people of Sin Domingo, and all con
cerned that the proposition should
be received favorably. It was, how
ever, rejected constitutionally, and
therefore the subject was never bfQoghl
up again by me.
In future,' while i hold my present
office, the subject ot acquisition ot tcr
ritorv must have the support of the
people before I will recommend any
proposition looking to sucn ncquisu
tion. I say here,' however, that I do
not share in any apprehension held by
many as to the danger of the govern-
meut becoming weakened and destroy
ed by reason of the extension of terri
tory. Commereo, education and rapid
transit of thought and matter by tele
graph and steam, have changed all
this. Rather do I believe that our
Great Maker is preparing the world
in His own good time to became one
nation, speaking one language, and
when armies and navies will no longer
My efforts in the future will be di-
rected to t he restoration ot good ieei
ing between the different sections of
our common couutry: to the reetora
tion of our currency to a njfed value,
as compared with the world's standard
of values, gold, and, it possible, to
par with it; the construction ot cheap
routes of travel throughout the land.

riority of strength and advantages of
civilization should make us lenient
towards the Indian. The wrong already
inflicted upon him should be taken
into account, and the balance placed
to nis credit. The moral view of the
question should be considered, and the
question asked: Cannot the Indian
be made a useful and productive mem
ber of society by proper teaching and
treatment. If the effort is made in
good faith, we will stand better before
the civilized nations of the earth and
in our own consciences for having
made it. All these things are not to

then tendered and accepted under the
first call for troops growing out of thai
event. I did not ask for place or
position, and was entirely without in
fluence, or the acquaintance of persons
of inflence, but was resolved to per
form my part in a struggle threatening
the very existence of the nation. I
performed a conscientious duty without
asking promotion or command, and
