The Tennessee Legislature did not
materialize at the inauguration. If
any mention of it presence has been
made in any paper, to date, the cir
cumstance has escaped our notice.
Manchester and Tullahoma are both
bidding fair for the' penitentiary, the
former offering the celebrated Stone
Fort u a site and the latter an unlim
ited number of acres of her wild lands.
We advise our neighbors to keep away
from the penitentiary by all means.
Garfield has' made up bis Cabinet,
aud left Senator Bruce, colored, and all
his race out, as usual. He says in his
inaugural address that the negro 'mud
vote' and that's all he say9. He
doesn't aay office to the negro "nary
time." He builds a long Southern
bridge over Bruce's nose by the ap
pointment of Mr. Huut, of Louisiana,
Secretary of the Navy.
The New Cabinet.
By reference to the names given
elsewhere, it will be Been that three
out of seven members of the Cabinet
are from the west, two from the middle
States, and one from the south and east.
The President, with three members,
including the Treasury and War de
partmentgives the new government
decidedly a Western cast, and fulfills
Bishop Berkley's famous poetical pre
diction, uttered with reference to this
country long before the United States

A New Proposition.
The bondholders propose now to
compromise dollar for dollar with three
per cent, interest, payable in ninety
nine years, with coupons receivable for
The interest at this rate would be
810,000 annually, or $162,000 less
than it would be at 60-6, while the
principal would be $10,800,000 more
than at the sixty and six proposition
We look uKu this as a speculative
proposition not without political sig
nificance ; and Tennessee is in no mood
to be tantalized with such political leg
erdemain. She is willing to make i
fair settlement, but will never consent
to to the above figures, for the simple
reason that they are unjust. We have
always held that the debt il a proper
subject of compromise, and not one of
diclation by either party.
The Tennessee Legislature reassem
bled on Tuesday last with five bills
passed and five hundred in front of it
with forty-five days behind it and thir

Washington, March 5. President
Garfield this afternoon sent to the Sen
ate the following nominations :
James B. Blaine, of Maine, to be
Secretary of State.
William Windom, of Minnesota, Sec
retary of the Treasury.
Wayne McVeagh, of Pennsylvania
Thomas L. amef, of Jew lork,
Samuel JKirkwood, of Iowa, Sec

The Inaugural Address.
The inaugural of President Garfield
(which will be found on our first page)
is regarded by the Southern press, as
well as the Northern, as a vigorous and
conservative document, indicating pa
triotism and statesmanship rather than
partisanship and sectionalism. It is to
be sincerely hoped for the good of the
wbole country that they rightly inter
pret the document, and that the new
President will prove in his administra
tion that he gave no uncertain sound iu
the inaugural. We have had twenty
years of war, strife and sectionalism,
and shall we now have an end of these,
aud in their steud peace, good will aud
Whother we are to have this change
o devoutly wished for, depends very
much, if not eutirely, ou what the in
augural means. If Garfield means
what he says in the declaration that,
"our people are determined to leave
behind them all those bitter controver
sies concerning things which have been
irrevocably settled," then we are to
have the desired change above named.
On a similar occasion, aud from the
same portico, President Grant, on the
4th of March, 1869, -uttered this la-
conic sentence : "Let us have peace."
At the end of eight years he went out
of office with very little evidence that
he ever attempted to execute the pa
cific mandate be then uttered. Fonr
years ago Mr. Hayes, from the same
stand, uttered similar plat titudes of
peace and prosperity that were aging
to be. His administration has ended
without having had the confidence
of either of the creat Dolitical
parties, much less of the people regard-
ess of parties. And now we have the
promise renewed by Mr. Garfield under
far more favorable auspices, and .the
people, who are not politicians, will
wait its fulfillment with no ordinary
degree of anxiety and eulicitudo.
The following is the synopsis of the
farewell address of Mr. Hayes, copied
from the New York Sun. We give it
for what it is worth, believing our
readers have as much right to it as
any one else. We do not believe Mr.
Iayes is the author of it, but the reader
must he his own judge as to that a?

well as its approptiateness:
'Fellow citizens '. About to lay
down the great trust which your suf
frages conferred four years ago upon
another person, it seems proper that 1
should address you a few words of af
fectionate warning. It has been cus
tomury heretofore only for the great
'residents, who were conscious of the
ove aud veneration of the people, to
take leave of their country in this sol
emn lorm. uut, inasmuch as l can
lardly be ranked among the Presidents
at all, and tiistory will probably take
note of me only as an intruder in that
illustrious line, I do not feel raysell
bound by these precedents.
But I was gratified with my appar
ent testimonials of popular favor, aud
believing that no man of real abilities
could receive the nomination at Cincin
nati I was not surprised that the battle
of the Titans ended in the choice of a
pigmy. Aud it was well so. ABtandarc
bearer of largerstature would have been
struck, perhaps fatally, by many mis
siles which passed harmless over my
My defeat was a cruel disappoint
ment, and the very large majority of
my opponent added greatly to the
weight of the blow. But I owe myself
the justice to state, in this, doubtless,
the last communication the public wil
ever receive from me, that I had no
thought then of resisting or refusing
the popular will. Had I consul te
only the promptings of my own heart
would have refused to be a part
the memorable conspiracy which was
immediately formed to substitute the
candidate rejected bv the people for
the candidate elected. So innocent
was 1 of the design subsequently exe
cuted that I publicly acknowledged my
defeat in a candid address from my
own doorstep, and I confess that I was
profoundly shocked when I saw Mr
Chandler's celebrated dispaich, boldly
announcing my election hours after my
defeat had been universally known and
I will not recall the history of my
induction into office. I wish, indeed
it might be erased from the memory of
men, and I would cheerfully return to
the conscience fund, of the treasury, or
make over to my defrauded competitor
all that has been saved of his four
years' salary, if that act could restore
me to the state of innocence 1 enjoyed

bad read attentively the powerful let

much as the people had, by a large
majority, expressed their approval of
its contents, and I was in the occupa
tioB of the cflic to which iU uthor

my duty to effect some of the reforms
lerein recommended." But I found
myself powerless ; I was not a free
gent The government was adminis-1
tered iu my name, but I was little
more than a passive instrument in the
nscrupulous hands which had forged
)8 various links in that so-called chain
of title to the office I held.
I loathed in my heart the leprous
criminals who had conceived and exe
cuted the during frauds in Louisiana
and Florida. But no sooner had I
taken the oath of office than I ascer
tained that my newest friends nnd
spousors had promibed them not merely
protection, but high promotion and
ther rewards, and I was compelled to
execute those promises, under penalty
f a complete discovery in every shock
ing detail of the stupendous crime of
which'I seemed to be enjoying the
fruits. It is needless to pursue the nar
rative. It is enough to say that, ex
cept one Cazenave, who was paid in
cash, they were all visiting statesmen,
returning board kuaves, forgers, secret
cgotiatore, thieves, and counsel before
the electoral commission pensioned
upon your treasury. The last of those
nominations, that of the notoriouu
Stanley Matthews, for Associate Jus-
ice of the Supreme Court, is even now
pending in the Senate.
But there was a still more grievous
humiliation to be endured. When I
renlized my defeat on the day after the
lection, I declared truly that the
sharpest pang that I then felt arose
from my apprehension concerning the
fate of the colored Republicans in the
contested Southern States. I now
earned that in order to secure the com
pletion of thu fraudulent count, my
friends had pledged me to- abandon
those colored Republicans, and to hand
over those States to the Democrats.
who claimed them ou precisely the
same grounds as Mr. lilten roiiMit
!iave claimed the Presidency. I hud
no resource but to comply. This step,
however, was only less fatal to me than
would have been a refusal. It lost me
I will not say the respect, for to that
had no claim but the support of
the earnest Republicans, who declared
that if I was elected, ao were Packard
und Chamberlain. It was soon plain J
that they, too, regarded me as a fraud
in a new sense.
This defection left me practically
without a party, and I sought to sup
ply the deficiency by an alliance with
the Southern Democracy. I outlined
a magnificent and duzzling scheme oi
internal improvements to be carried
out in the South at the general expense,
and I blew, with nil the breath that
was in me, the trump of resurrection
over the tomb of the old Whig party.
But nobody would trust a Fraud, and
but one solitary Whig emerged at my
blast, in the person of the late Alexan
der H. Stephens. Having lost my own
party, it was evident to them that my
power to execute was less thau my in
clination to promise, and they prudent
ly declined a coalition which on my
side was based on nothing more sub
stantial than the few offices which had
not already been distributed.
Under these circumstances it will be
seen that the total failure of my fraud
ulent administration was a foregone
conclusion ; and I long since discovered
that I must content myself with draw
ing the salary of the Presidency in ad
vance, and hoarding what could be
saved from it by rigid economy and a
sordid affection of temperance. This,
with a scrupulous provision for a few
personal friends, such as my family
physician and my son Webb, at the
public expense, has been my only so
lace under the sad humiliation of these
hitter months of my residence in the
White House. Conscious that all par
ties, and even men of no party, looked
forward ftith a grateful sense of relief
to the period of my final departure for
Ohio, I have felt that some explana
tion was due to myself and to the pub
lic of the difficulties which inevitably
environ a fraudulent President. Had
I been honestly elected, 1 could no
doubt have done much for the reforma
tion of the public abuses pointed out
with much emphasis by Mr. Tildcn,
and mildly alluded to by Mr. Car
Shurtz in my own letter of acceptance,
