The Inaugural Address of
Governor Cox.
We are entering upon a new
epoch in our history. The period
of struggle for .national existence
is ended, and we have celebrated
our thanksgiving to God for deliv
erance. Tho war administrations
of both Nation and State have cone
by, and we have begun an era of
peace with its new duties and new
responsibilities. We have proven
that our Government- is strong
enough to resist the most formi
dable efforts to destroy it by force,
and we are now to show whether it
has such vitality that it can assimi
late the different elements com
prised under its rule, and harmonize
tho antagonisms' ; necessarily re
maining after so fierce a strife.
For 'years all our energies and
our resources have been devoted to
the simple duty of subduing a great
rebellion ; and what was demanded
of us was undaunted courage and
obstinate determination, concen
trating our yill and our power upon
the single purpose belbro us, and
refusing to be turned aside for any
other object till that was thoroughly
accomplished. Now we have put
off the h arness of war; the grand
army which saved the republic is
disbanded ; its veterans have been
quietly absorbed into the mass of
their fellow-citizens, and all are
now inteittly studying tho problem
of changing a Union restored by
force, into one whose permanence
shall be guaranteed by mutual
good will and common interests,
and be based upon universal free
dom and genuine republicanism.
To do this will demand qualities of
head and heart quite as high as any
thttt have been called into exercise
hitherto, and if we succeed in lind
ing the solution "we seek, we shall
prove that the victories of peace
are far greater than those of war.
On the one hand are the dangers of
receiving into full participation in
the Government those who have
been staking everything upon its
overthrow ; and upon the other, the
obligations we are under to the
whole world to adhere to those
doctrines of Democratic liberty and
equality which lie at the foundation
of our system ; whilst our relations
to the unfortunate African race,
whose slavery we have abolished
and whose freedom we are sacredlv
bound to protect, como in to com
plicate both classes of difficulties.
Congress and the President are
now at work upon tho details of
complete restoration of civil gov
ernment in the States lately rebel
lious, ana we, m common in the
whole country, are watching their
progress with the most earnest
hope that they may speedily agree
upon a national policy which shall
thoroughly accord with the highest
interests of the whole land. I do
not regard this a proper time to
discuss specific measure's which are
before our federal legislature and
authorities, but all our public acts
in our State organizations, as well
as in our National capacity, must
be more or less modified by circum
stances shaped by the great war in
which we have been engaged, and
it seems necessary therefore, as a
preparation lor every species of
public duty, that we should look
with special care at any dangerous
tendencies the war may have de
veloped and recall the general
principles which should guide our
actions as servants of the people.
n is in tne excitement ol a great
struggle that the institutions of a
country are in tho most danger of
change, and perhaps no nation has
ever passed through such a convul
sion as ours and then returned to
the principles of government and
exact form of constitution which it
had before. The maxims that revo
lutions do not go backward, has
seemed to have even a wider and
deeper significance than has been
popularly given to it, The same
law of progression which has made
the convulsions of monarchical
governments tend toward the de
velopment of popular liberty, has
in republics too often led to a des
potism of classes or of factions, and
thence by easy stages to anarchy
and utter disruption. A victorious
majority, flushed with its triumph.
finds it easy to forget the rights of
minorities ; ana that it remains for
us to, prove whetherj in our day,
tne oia cryol "Woe. to the con
quered" taay he silenced by a truly
republican determination to ad
minister ; the .. government for the
real advantage of all-rof the de
feated rebels as well as of the loyal
victors.
' The . war was not-waged by us,
who' remained faithful to the Gov-
ernment, to subvert any of ! the
principles of human liberty uponj
but to conform and establish them.
The one great doctrine' which has
been settled by tho war is that tho
National Union can not and shall
not be destroyed by tho action of
any of the States composing it; but
its continuance, its modification, or
its dissolution shall be determined
by the whole people acting as 'oho
nation under the forms of the Fed-fing
eral Constitution. Tho one great
social change which has been de
termined by the same event, is the
abolition of slavery, tho existence
of which was staked upon the suc
cess of the robellionj of which it
was the cause. . '
"
' : These ' things' havei been1' de?
cided in the dread court of last
resort for peoples and nations. By
as much as the shock of armed
hosts is more grand than the intel
lectual tilt of lawyers: as the God
of battles is a moro' awful' judge
than any earthly court': by so much
does the dignity of this contest and
finality of this decision exceed '
that ot any human tribunal. If we !
nave not been right m pledging
our lives and our fortunes to save
our country, then the blood of the
myriads of heroes who have fallen
rests with murderous guilt upon
souls, and we should never !
consent that the justification or
condemnation of this great people
should rest, now or hereafter, with
any bench ot judges, however i
learned, especially when each judge
must determine his own cause, since
ho must have been for or against
the country in her struggle. There
are some things to which courts of
law can add no sanction, and a
nation's appeal to God when jt
seizes the sword is one of them.
We may, when necessary, try indi

the bar.
Being conquerer, the Govern
ment has the undoubted right to
impose terms upon the conquered, 1
uut in me siiutMucuioi wimi snouiu
limit and define those terms, difii-
culties arise. We are apt, indeed,
to listen with impatience to any
limitation of our control over those
who are subject to us. The pleas-1
ures of rulership and the joy which
is felt in the exerciso of power
have always appealed with pecu
liar force to the frailties of human
nature, and professed Republicans
have been as subject to their temp
tation as other men. In a time
like this most of us feel the neces
sity of checking our impulses and
passions, challenging the motives
and the consistency of our actions,
and of fastening our attention, by
effort of will, upon principles of j
government ana ot human rights
which have been axioms to us
during the period of the growth of
our institutions and of conflicts
between us and powerful foreign
powers. However unwelcome the
task of self-examination, we owe it
to ourselves to make it thorough
and searching. The ancient con
querer was accompanied by a slave
in his triumphal car, who reminded
him of his humanity and his weak-1
ness; we must act as our own
prompters to moderation and jus-;

action, and the dangerous tenden
cies of our own nature. We need
no stimulus to i anything which runs
with the whole current of popular .
impulse and feeling; such things
will ' take care of themselves, but
no' duty can be more important
than that of stopping occasionally
to weigh well what seems to cross
our desires or to '. question the
direction of our progress.
We have the right and are in duty
bound to insist upon sufficient guar
antees for the future safety of the
Union ; but those guarantees must
be such as shall not be inconsistent
with a Republican Government for
those who give as well as for those
who receive such security.
Conquest does not rightfully give
unlimited sway over the persons
and property of the conquered, and
their rights' may be' diminished no
farther than is necessary for the
public safety. 1 '-' ' ,'

conferred upon majorities, but it is
most efficient for good when it
approaches most nearly to giving
voice in tho Lecislature to all
minorities in proportion to their
number.
It is better and safer that a
minority, however hostile to us in
principle, should be so represented
as to be openly heard and answered,
man mat it should nave the advan
tage of winning sympathy and gain
partisans by making'issue upon
the question of the right of repre
sentation instead of upon the falsity

These and many similar general
maxims' of government are the in
tellectual diet upon which every
living American has been bred,
and of which' we have been such
earnest, propagandists that no one
it is true, but we need to bear them
in mind none the less carefully for
that. All rules aro abstrations,
whether they ho the formula; for
recall them to test our work, and
we reckon ourselves to have made
good progress in proportion to the
laillitulness with which we have
adhered to them
In the heat of our just wrath
against , those who would have
swept republicanism from tho con
tinent, had they been successful,
we are in danger of forgetting prin
ciples to which we owe allegiance,
and therefore we should not excuse
ourselves from the thankless task

To follow these rules and yet pro-
vide that the national safety be not
endangered, to determine who of
tho Government arc without tho
pale of clemency,'and yet to extend
amnesty to the other millions of
tnose who were rebels, to restore
political privileges to those who
were formerly masters, and yet
protect the freedom of those who
were formerly slaves such is the
difficult and delicate work before
the executive and tho legislature
of the Nation, and they may rightly
claim of us all such appreciation
of their task as shall make us most
kind and charitable judges of their
differences from favorite measures
of our own. Wo have, indeed,
reason to be devoutly thankful that
the work has fallen upon men in
whose patriotism and wisdom we
have so great cause for confidence,
and that the progress they have
already made promises a conclu
sion which shall be reasonably
speedy and generally satisfactory
to tho country.
In the presence of these vast in
terests which are before us as part
of the Nation, the loeal concerns
which affec t us as a State alone, are
likely to be dwarfed and lose their
proper attention. I do not propose

our 0fliciai state duties we find no
such heavy responsibility as rests
upon the shoulders ot the olhcers
of our National Government. The
close of the war has taken from us
the necessity for putting armies in
the field, and relieved us, in our
State capacity, of the labors inci
dent to close co-operation with the
General Government in all the
great affairs which have made the
past five years so memorable in
our history. .We are subsiding into
the quiet routine of peaceful times,
and as our young men are return
ing to their farms, their merchan
dies and their shops, the great drain
upon our physical strength being
removed, the energetic use of in
telligent labor will soon prove how
rapidly Hhe, recuperate powers of
this people act, and how true it is
that the , times which make least
show in the world's history are very
commonly those of greatest happi
ness and prosperity to a State.
Our .veterans will not be adding
new names to the long list of their
fields of glory, but they will be
winning victories over physical
nature and transforming the fruits
of the soil and the minerals of the
earth into that wealth which shall
spread comfort arid happiness
everywhere. We, who havo been
called to guide tho movement of
our. State Government, will con
nect our names with no such brill
iant acts as have given wide-spread
reputation for high statesmanship
to the succession of State officers
who have preceded us during these
troubled times; but in the humbler
duties which will fall to us we may
rejoice that these quiet days are, in
some sense, our best days, because
they are, as wo hope, the beginning
of an era of purer and more rapid
advancement in everything which
tends to the highest civilization. 1
The habit of eraspinc cnl

deeds has apparently begotten in
our t poopio . a disposition . wh.vclv
makes all' business enterprise" f:.V.e
wider scope than heretofore, and
tho keen insight with which all our
resources are scanned, and the ad
venturous energy with which their
development is pushed, leave noth
ing to be desired in a business
point of view, unless it be an in
crease of that sajracious caution
which may save uslrom the danger

and comparatively little can be
done by us directly to provide
against tho threatened evils to
which I have alluded, except to
exhort our fellow-citizens to pre

migrants within our borders. Wis
foresight aitd prompt action may
unquestionably do much to induce
the best class of foreigners who aie
Hocking to our shores to setth
amongst us, whero they will find in
tho highest degrcojUis. advantages
which have allured them to this
country, with many of those pleas
ures of society and of an older
civilization which they must forego
in tho sparsely settled regions of
the far West, to which the great
current of migration is tending. It
will also bo our duty to promote
the most rapid assimilation of the
foreign element with our native
population. Tho events through
which we havo just passed have
proven how rapidly tho foreign
settler has become American in
interest, in thought and in patriot
ism; but tho good results we have
seen should only encourage us to
moro systematic use of the means
which tend to so desirable a result.
A nation is strong in proportion to
the homogeneity of its people. To
be countrymen should in itself bo
a pledge of brotherhood wherever
we meet, and brotherhood implies
community of language and simi
larity of habit and thought. To
encourage and stimulate our natur
alized fellow-citizens, and tho ncv
comers who purposo becoming
such, to adopt our language, to
educate their children with cir:-,
and to identify themselves with us
us rapidly a3 possible, is tho dictate
f true patriotism in us, and, at the
same time, is tho best welcome we
can give to them, since there oan
be no question that they will thus
become most quickly acquainted
with their rights as citizens, will
be least likely to be overreached
and made dupes of in business or
in politics, and will find tho road
to pecuniary profit and personal
advancement most rapidly open
beforo them.
Our common school system is to
be fostered and improved, and there
is nothing in which our people have
deeper interest than this. If there
be any one thing to which, under
Providence, more than to another
we owe our safe passage through
our recent perils, I believe it is the
intelligence which our common
schools have universally diffused.
It has not been simply the power
toread, but that larger and wider
culture which has made the Ameri
can . people capable of weighing
and deciding upon grave arguments
of right and of policy in the midst
of greatest excitement. The Gov
ernment appealed to them'as- to
men able" to comprehend any argu
ments of State policy, and this
steady loyalty of the people and
their persevering support of the
national cause was in direct pro
portion to the intelligence and
education of different States or
