WASHINGTON, March 4.-At the inaugu?
ration, this morning, Gen. Grant said:
CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES: Your
suffrage having elected me to the oflico of
President of the United States, 1 have, in
conformity with the Constitution of our
country, taken the oath of office proscribed
therein. I have tuken this oath without,
mortal reservation, and with the deter?
mination to do, to the best of ray ability,
all that it requires of me.. The responsi?
bilities of the position I feel, but accept
them without fear. Tho office has como to
me nnsougbt. I commence its duties un?
trammeled. 1 bring to it a conscientious
desire aud determination to fill it, to the
best of my ability, to tho satisfaction of
the people. On all leading questions agi?
tating the public mind, I will always ex?
press my views to Congress, and urge them
according to my judgment; and, when I
think it advisable, will exorciso the consti?
tutional privilege of interposing a veto tc
defeat measures which I oppose, lint all
laws will be faithfully executed, whethei
they meet my approval or not. 1 shall on
all subjects have a policy to recommend,
but none to euforco against tho will of the
people. Laws aro to govern nil alike-those
opposed "to, as well ns those who favor t hem
I know no better method to secure the rc
peal of bad or obnoxious laws than theil
stringent execution. Tho country having
just emerged from a great rebellion, man]
questions will come before it for settlemen
in the next four years which preceding ad
ministrations have never had to deni with
In the meantime, it is desirable that the;
should be approached calmly, without pre
judice, hate or sectional pride, remember
ing that the greatest good to tho greates
number is the object to bo attained. Tin
requires security of property and of politi
cal opinion in every part of our commo;
country, without regard to local prejudice
All laws to secure these ends will receiv
my best efforts for their enforcement.
A great debt has been contracted in sc
. curing to ns and our posterity the Unioi:
The payment of this principal and intcre*
as well as tho return to a specie basis as soo
ns it can be accomplished, without muterit
detriment to the debtor class, or to th
country at large, must be pledged. T
protect tho national honor every dollar (
Government indebtedness should bo paid i
gold, nnlesB otherwise expressly stipulate
in the contract. Let it be understood tin
no repudiation of one farthing of our publ
debt will be entertained, and it will go fi
towards strengthening a credit which ougl
to be the best in tho world, and wo will ult
rnately be nbln to replace tho debt with bone
bearing less interest thau we now pay. 1
this should bo added a faithful collection
the revenue, a strict accountability to tl
Treasury for every dollar collected, and tl
greatest possible retrenchment in ex pene
tures in every deparment of the Gover
ment. When wo comparo tho paying cap
city of the country now, (with ten Stat
still in poverty fron the effects of war, b
soon to emerge, we trust, to greater prc
perity than ever before,) with its pay ii
capacity twenty-?vo years ago, it is incale
lubie what it probably will be twenty-fi
years hence. Who cnn doubt, then, the ft
sibility of paying every dollar with mc
ease than we now pay for useless luxnric
Why, it looks as though Providence h
bestowed upon us a strong box of precin
metals locked up in tho sterile mountains
tho far West which we aro now forging t
key to unlock to meet tho verj- coutingen
that is now upon us. Ultimately it mny
uece88ary to incienso tho facilities to ron
these riches, and it may bo necessary, alf
that tho General Government should gi
its aid to securo this access. l?ut tl
should only bo when a dollar of obligati
to pay secures tho dollar to us now, and i
before. Whilst the question of specie pi
nu nts is in obey anec, the prudent basin
man is careful about contracting deb
payable in the distant futuro. The nati
should follow thc samo rulo. A prostr
commerce is now to rebuild, and all indu
men ts to encourage tho young men of I
country-thoso who, from their age, m
be its rulers tweuty-five years hence
mund greater interest in maintaining
national honor. A. moment's reflection
to what will,bo our commanding influei
among tho nations of tho earth, in their d
if they aro only true to themselves, sho
inspiro them with national pride. All d
visions, geographical, political and r
gious, can joiu in this common sen ti men
how tho public debt is to be paid or sp<
payments resinned. Legislation upon I
subject may not be necessary now, nor e
advisable, but it will be when tho civil li
aro moro fully restored in all parts of
country, aud trade resumes it wanted eli
nels. It will bo my ondeavor to execute
laws in good faith, to collect all revsn
assessed, and to have them property
counted for, and economically disbur:
I will, to tho best of my ability, nppi
to offico thoso only who will carry ont
In regard to foreign policy, I would i
with nations as equitable law requires ii
viduals to deal with ench other, and I w<
protect tho law-abiding oitizen, whetlie
native or foreign birth, wherever his ri|
are jeopardized or the flag of onr com
floats. I would respect the rights o
muions, demanding equal respect for
own. If others depart from this
in their dealings with us, we may be (
polled to follow their precedent.
The proper trcatmeut of the original
cupants of thia land, the Indiana, ia ono
deserving of careful study. I ?ill favor any
coarse towards them which tends to their
civilization, christianizing and ultimate
citizenship. The question of suffrage is
one which is likely to agitate the publics so
long as a portion of their domain is to bo
added or excluded from its privileges in
any State. It seems to mo very desirable j
that this question should be settled now, j
and I entertain tho hope aud express the j
desire that it may bo by tho ratification of j
the fifteenth article of amendment to tho j
Constitution. In conclusion, I nsk patient
for'.:carancc--one towards another-through
ont the land, and a determined effort on
tho part of every citizen to do his sharo
towalds cementing a happy Union. And I
ask the prayers of the nation to Almighty
God in behalf of this consummation.
In tho Seuate, the committeo appointed
to investigate corruption connected with
the impeachment, reported thut there was
no evidence or corruption. Tho motion to
act on Mrs. Lincoln's allowance failed-23
to 27. Also, tho repeal of the tcnuro of J
office failed-14 to 25.
At 12 M., Grant and Colfax entered tho
Seuate Chamber. Colfax spoko briefly,
confining himself to tho duties of his office,
and theu took bis seat, when tho new Sena?
tors were qualified. Without action, the
Seuate adjurned to noon to-morrow.
In tho House, bills requiring national

Tho Judiciary Committee on tho case of

This ends Busteed's caso.
