This event, indelibly recorded, marked
the bcK'luninjf of a memorable epoch tn
American history; for it was the dedication '
of the young- Hepubllo as well aa the inau
guration ot its first President. Here fa
tuous aotora ot revolutionary times raaliied
their dreams ot independence. Uron this
aite the crowning event ot VTaKhington'a
glorious Ufe and the life ot the Juvenile j
Union occurred. Among the most tmpos-
lug- ecejjea In our National history, the
lramn played here, amid the plow of
patriotic enthusiasm, one hundred years
ago, must be regarded as trans endent.
From the balcony of the hall that stood
where the statue now is, the Declaration ot
Independence was first read to the citizens
ot New York; the Continental Congress sat
tiero in its closing days; and here the first
l-'cderal Congress assembled America
offered no place moro honorably identified
with the history of American liberty than
The first inauguration of Washington
marked the birth of our National Republic.
Colonial and provincial America ceased to
pilxt, and National America began. The
hope of BUCCOS.S lay apparently in one man,
revered and beloved as no other man had
icon or ever will Ik, and upon the suooess

olemnly devoted. What scene in history
overtops or even equals the grandeur and
dgnllicanco of that glorious consecration?
Am we look ujon this sculptured form of the
"Father of llis Country," and remember
that this is the place of the sublime event

and the Chancellor stood Secretary OtLs, of
the Senate, a small, short man, holding a
Bible on a crimson cushion. Conspicuous
in the group were Roger Sherman, General
Knox, General St. Clair and Baron Steuben.
The Bible npon which the oath was taken
is carefully preserved by St John's Masonic
Lodge, No. 1, of this Ktat-e. It bears this in
scription: "On this sacred volume, on the
thirtieth day of April, 17S9, in the City of
New York, was administered to George
Washington, the first President of the
United States of America, the oath to sup
port the constitution of the United States."
Chancellor Livingston administered the
oath in slow, distinct words. IVhen the Bi
ble was raised, and as Washington bowed to
kiss it, he saiii, gravely: "I swear," adding
fervently, with closed eyes, "so help me,
"It is done," Baid the Chancellor; and
then turning to the spellbound throng be
, low, he exclaimed: "Long live George
AVasfclnjrton, President of the United
States!" This was tha signal for the out
burst of pent-up joy and patriotism. A
hurricane of shouts rent the air, and with
the waving of flags and banners lasted for
several minutes. A flag was immediately
displayed over Federal Hall as a sign that
the ceremony had been performed, and in
stantaneously all the bells in the city rang
out triumphantly, while cannon boomed
from fort and fleet in every direction.
Washington bowed low to the vast, cheer
ing assemblage, aud then retired to the
Senate chamber, where he delivered a
short inaugural address remarkable for ita
modesty, dignity and wisdom
After his address. President Washington,
attended by the Vice-President, Chancellor
Livingston, Cabinet officers and other dig
nitaries, went to St. Paul's Chapel, where
prayers were read by Bishop Provoost, one
of the chaplains of Congresa The church
was crowded, and the services very im
pressive. After they were over the Presi
dent was escorted to his residence. In the
evening the ci'y was brilliantly illuminated,
and the people, who usually retired early,
sat up until a late hour talking about the
event of the day which crowned the man
who was "first in war, first in peace, and
first in the hearts of his countrymen."
THE LEADING NEWSPAPER.
A Single Column Devoted to the Keport
of the Inauguration.
The leading newspaper in New York City
in 1 TN9 was the Gazette of the United States.
It contained four pages of three columns
each and was published semi-weekly. It is
amusing to compare the issues announcing
John Adams' arrival and talVng the oath
and Washington's arrival, week's sojourn
and impressive inauguration with the re
ports of similar events iu the leading news
papers of the present t'ay. In the Gazette
of May 2,1 the first page is devoted to a
political essay by "Amej-1e;inus" and a com
munication on general affairs. The second
page give3 the regular proceedings of Con
gress. Two-thirds of the way down the
first column of the third page, under the
simple head-line, "City of - New Y'ork," be
gins the report of one of the greatest events
in the life of this Nation or of the world.
But little more than two columns is devoted
to the august proceedings, and exactly one
half of tbat limited space Is taken np by
Washington's inaugural address. And yet
the Gazette was thoroughly patriotic and
seemed to be imbued with the spirit of the

The Gazette of dat 3 April 1TS0, thus
describes the arrival of John Adams from
his home in Boston :

is prostrated, and communications are en
tirely cut off. The Western Union, with
its crush of train dispatching, would not
touch a message of any other character
in the Territory, though the earth swal
lowed a town site. Guthrie's back seem
broken,and there is a furious stampede to
get out. People there are wild from the
deprivations tbat lack ot shelter, water
audtood vnvpo&e wu Vbem, To Wveae
distresses are added the misfortunes ot
tempest, heat and the absence of means
of flight. When your correspondent

were locked, but upon the roof 3, the

the pilot and gangway of the locomotive.
and packed" in aud upon the caboose was
a dense and miserable throng of men.
The train from Guthrie bad started with
its strange load at six o'clock in the even
ing. It was useless to attempt to enforce
the laws restrictive of railroad travel.
Tho people were fleeing practically for
their lives. They bad added to long p
riods of privation the suffering of seven
teen hours without food or protection
from the cold. No train had passed them,
and none in sight behind. They had left
a howling mob in Guthrie, baffled in ita
efforts to join in the flight. The useless
ness of proceeding to Guthrie .was ap
parent, and the correspondent secured a
footing for one foot, and returned to this
point with the laggard train.
Some experiences are pitiful. A terri
ble storm Tuesday night raised tha
miseries ot Guthrie almost to a horror.
A violent wind arose as the suu sank, and
filled tbe air with stifling red alkali dust
that strews the plains. A deluge ot vain
followed, aud throughout the night beat
upon the thousands of shelterless. The
railroad is utterly incompetent in the
emergency, and is delivering baggage
and express too slowly to be of use to the
unprotected. The fugitives cheer with
joy as they alight here, and rush to the
hydrants and eating-houses. Curses are
heaped upon the region and the Govern
ment. Marshals Needles and Jones are
execrated without stint for the theft of
the land, and the railroad is denounced
for its feeble service. Guthrie is without
form. The original streets have disap
peared, and new sections are be
ing plowed every hour. Values
have fallen to practically nothing,
and confidence is at a low ebb.
Those who are not going homo announce
their intentions of moving upon the
Cherokee Strip, aud report that hundreds
of boomers iu wagons have already done
so. Scores of men surrounded their
claims to lots iu Guthrie without an ef
fort to preserve or dispose of them. The
30uth-bound passenger train arrived
after a time crowded with pilgrims tor
Guthrie, aud few could be dissuaded by
the lamentations of the fugitives. It is
impossible to predict what the next few
davs will develoD at Guthrie.
General Merritt's report of the numbers
in Oklahoma is incomprehensible, uie
estimate here is that fully 15.000 people
are now in Guthrie and more than 50,(K)0
in the Territory. Nearly twice as many
as he allows for the whole Territory left
this place aloue and are still pouring iu.
