I pinefor the early days once more,
The years of the distant past;
When the lights of life were golden rays
Aeross which no shadows were cast.
I sigh for the true W*km-hearted friends,
Who loved and welcomed me then,.
Aid bitter, oh, bitter, the thought to me
That I ne'er shall greet them again.
No, never again, for the world is wide,
And our paths have parted for aye;
The current of Time is bearing.us on
Far away from our childhood's day.
We may sigh, we may weep for the joys
that have flown,
Baut we ne'er can recall them again;
The years that have passed to Eternity's
We weep and we sigh for in vain.

Gov. Warmoth's Inaugural
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Senate
and House of Representatives:
I am deeply impressed with the grave
and peculiar significance of this occasion
and the magnitude of the responsibility
which I am this day to assume. I trust
the bearts of all of us are moved and per
vaded by a realizing sense of the new and
serious duties we have been called upon to
discharge. Before me is the first legisla
tare as an equal member of the American
Union that has sat forseven years. I need
pot recount to you the history of these sev
en years, so fall of startling and wonderful
as well as painful and terrible events-so
pregnant with momenteos issues, so pro
dsomive of great and glorious results. Nor
do I deem it expedient at thistime to trace
the chain of causes which led to these
&vents, and produced these results, or to
dieeuse the questions of who have been
most culpable and responsible for whatev
er has been wrong or mistaken in the past,
and who are most deserving of credit for
whatever is good in the present. We have
here met not to speculate' upon the past,
nor to brood and quarrel over its ashes,
but rather to meet the great living issues
of the present and the duties which it im
poses upon us. We st-nd amid the ruins
of an old order of things; it should be ours
to work wisely and manfully for the estab
lishment of a new and. better order of
things upon the foundation which these
seven years have established. So long as
time is spent in futile and irritating dis
oassions upon the realness and probable
permanency of these foundations, or per
sistent and perhaps turbulent efforts to un
settle and upheave them, so long will the
public peace, order and tranquility refuse
to be restored, and so long will the restor
ation and development of all the great in
teri~ta of the State be delayed and endan
Gentlemen, the corner stone of' these
foundations laid and fixed forever by a
Swar, sealed as I firmly believe by the hand
of od himself, and recognized by that or
Sgnie law under which we have assembled,
and which I am here to swear to support
:sad defend is the equality before the law
.and the enjoyment of every political right
of all the citizens of the State, regardless
of race, color, or previous condition: and
only when this grand distinctive feature
Softhe new Constitution shall be stamped
on every act of legislation, and when such
legislation shall find approval and support
in that general public sentiment which
gives to law its vitality, will our State
fairly enter upon that career of greatness
and prosperity which the Almighty design
ed for her. It would be idle to deny Clinat
'while a large majority of our people have
testified in the strongest manrner to their
approval of that feature of the Constitu
tion of which' I have spoken, there is still
a minority, not wanting in intelligence
and virtue, who are strenuously opposed
to it Much is to be hoped from the good
sense, the discretion, and inherent love or
jaustice of the American people for the grad
aal wearing away of the prejudices nuon
which alone this opposition is founded.
Meantime let our course, while resolute
and manly, be also moderate and discreet.
Let legislation be kept as much as possible
'in harmony with the sentiments of the
whole people. It is better that the course
of legislation should rather fall behind than
to outstrip the popular wishes and de
mands. Let everything consistent with
right and justice be dane to bring back the
era of good feeling,;pnd to wash fram the
memories of all everything that tends to
" alienate one class or one party from an

any discussion of measures which I may
deem of importance. In future I will dis

Loyal Loot,
[From toe New York World.
s, The holy horfor of the Tribune over the
late "loot " in Abyssinia; where Napier's
soldiers are said to have stolen mule loads
le of books and pictures, and even to have
carried away the censers and chalices of
churches, inspired that shocked journal to
utter an entirely new conundrum, ti-wit,
the following:
" Having done their best to reduce
Abyssinia to heathenism, these christian
s conquerors have the grace to k9ep their
plundeg in their pockets until they are out
of the teointry ! Do the annals of War
furnishanother insatafce of such delicate
's rapacity ?"
We should say that they did. For in
stanc'e the cart loads of books stolen from
Southern libraries during the war, the
plate, pictures; jianos, baby linen, and
spoils generally, were for a long while sur
reptitiously shown only to loll friends in
New England as rebel trophies. The
mere robbery of libf$ries; the stealing of
e communion services from churches; the
theft of the silver candelabra from the al
'e tar of the Jesuits' Church of the Immacu.
,n late Conception in New Orleans when
a Butler was commandant; the sacking of
private houses and the general turning up
d in ten States of the eoil of kitchen gardens
in a wild search for rebellious silver tea.
pots-these are minormatters, mere trifles,
n in comparison with cuch outrages as the
d burning of churches in Columbia and At
lanta. It was reported inthe lase Protest
Il ant Episcopal Convention ot South Caro
o lina that no less- than fifteen churches of
t that one denomination were burned in that
State during the war; indeed, church
burning was as much a passion with the
o vagabonds and bummers of the army as it
n was at the North some years ago, when
what is now called the Radical party was
known as the Native American party, of
r whlch Colfax was a prominent member.- I
e The historian of the American conflict in
appealing for precedents which rival the
recent loot in Abyssinia can find in the
late war "to r-estore the Union" wholesale
instances of robbery and plunder, the like I
of which are not to be found among the
annals of the Feejees, or head-hunthrs of 1
f Borneo. The sack of the magnificent
e State library at Baton Rouge, Louisiana,
s and the burning of the sp!endid building to
- cover the theft, the plunder of Arlington
e and the general lot of family relics which
were heir-looms from Washington; the
thefts and robberies which marked the
whoTb march of the army thltoughout the t
South, are unparalleled in any history of I
. civilized or barbarous nations. We need g
not name a single individual loyal LazarQs
who went South expressly to deplete the
pockets and plate corsets of the disloyal i
s Dives. His name might be Butler; it 1
1 might be Dow; it might be Jones; in all f
probability it was a name of some such
sort, The brigadiers who went to. the war
beggars ail came home millionaires may
t be counted by hundreds. With these men
"loot" was a synonyhme for loyalty, and
I their "patriotism" was plunder. The Tri
bune knows as well as we do that the
I wholesale thefts of certain'loil Genera!s at
1 the South daring the war are only faintly
t paralleled by the loot in Abyssinia, and
are only equalled by the wholesale plunder
of the peace patriots whose super-loyalty
manifests itself in the astounding Radical
defalcations and robberies which now al
most daily develop in Washington.

A REMHISczxcz or LmN3I SUPRIst
TION.--In his sermon last Sunday, at the
Methodist church in this village, the vener
r able, divine, Rev, Mr. Parker, ot Rochester
I who is now about 75 years of age, related
an incident that will probably be of inter
I eat to the majority of our readeii. Sixty. 1
one years ago last February, a certain per
son started from Leicester to cross the
Genesee Flats, bound for the western
shore of the Gcnesee river. When about
half way across the flats, in the early even
l lug, he was startled by hearing a strange
noise in the heavens abrae him, which
r sounded to him like screaming and wailing
of a person far up in the clouds. He te
- turned to his home and related the circum
stance to his neighbors, who went with him I
to tile place the next e~4ping and then hnad
there were witnesses to' the sand, noise. I
People came from a distance to' hear the
strange noise, and for two weeks a large
crowd was at the place every evening, at a
times to the number of two thousand.-. 1
The native Indians that were then dwel
ling on Sqakie Hill, lald a concll, and came
to the conclusion that it was the spirit of
one of their fathers who died a short time
previous, and had lost its way while on
its journey to the "Happy Hunting
Grounds," and in its distress was calling a
for help. To assist this departed fatheron
his journey, and open a way for him one
hundised Warriors were selected and armed 1
with rifles as heavi!y loaded as they could I
bear. These warriors were tplaced as near- I
ly under the noise as possible, and at a
given signal from one of their number they
fired simttiltaneously into the air. From
that time and forever after, the noise was
heard no more. Mr. John White of 1.t

wealths, What Was once. In fact the federal
Union Of such approval, li the present
Stemper of parties, I can perhaps hate no
reasonable expectation. All historyproves
that men who, in official po ition, oppose
- for any reason cherished schemes devised
e by factions to acquire power, nusally find
more determined assailants than open and
t earnest defenders. Hence, in resisting
measures, which, although sustained by
Congress, I honestly believed to be en
croachments updn the Constitutions my
task has been make arduous and seeming
ly ungracious, by an oppositiou powerfully
well organiWed and possessin a controlling I
influence in tid halls o? le slation unpre

Compelled to devote my entire time to the
issues' that have been forced updh me and I
t to contend against a majority represented
I by two-thirds of each house of Congress, I
have been unable While striving to protect
nd maintain the liberties of the people, to
check the eatravagant ekpehditures for ob
jects not contemplated by theConstitutron I
and to lighten the buirdepa of taxation,
which now rest so opprdsilvely ~ipon the
nation. In the midst of these embarrass-I
- ments I have hot been discouraged, while
froth the public prints or from some unu
sually frank and outspoken friends, I have I
heard that I have no party. The sugges
tion has only served to remind me of a
memorable remark auttered, when faction I
ruled high in Rome that Caesar hada par
ty, and Pdmpay and Cresds each had a
party, but that the comi ponwealth had one
aiming only, as the representative of the s
people, to stand by the rights of the com
monwealth. May I not pertinently make
the application to my own case, qonstrain
ed in occupying my poaltion as the federal
executive; to abide in silencd the Wrongus
and encroachments of the most insidabus
as well as desperate dharacter; ot some
times when incapable of ati'esting them,
permitted only to employ thd futile pros
peats, compelled, with only the prlvilege of
remonstrance, or the terrible alternative of
counterrevolution to resist revolutionary
projects,.obliged to stand in the attitude of
a mere spectator, whilst the invaluable time
of the nation has been ;wasted in careless t
assaults upon myself and office, for the ben
eft of a party. I cannot complain of the
people, who, while witnessing, have not
been able to make any case thoroughly t
their own. The defense of the Constitu
tion and laws was their own battle.
Until however, the people's representa
tive will recognize more plainly the impera
tive needs of the country by lightoning the a
burdens of excessive and onerodstaxation
and preventing successivel iposts upon the li

be content with the mere delusive hope 0
