The following are the comments of some leading Abolition journals, on Andy Johnson’s inauguration as Vice President. The Philadelphia Ledger says : “The saddest spectacle attending the in-1 auguratioD at Washington, on Saturday, j was the Vico President of the country standing before an assembled multitude of his fellow-citizens end-avoriog to articu late a maudlin speech, but unable to do so intelligibly. There have been shameful exhibitions in public bef ire by men occu pying positions and places of honor, but! at no period of our political history can there be found one which so degraded the high offije the people assembled to hon or. Tne Senate, blushing for tho scene, immedia ely ordered the bar fir the sale ! of liquors to be removed ; but this does 1 not remove the public disgrace of the spectacle. It is panful to hive to reflect in terms of censure upm persons exalted to the bigh'st favors of the Republic;) but the only way to correct a bal example in such positions, is for the piople to eon demo the open improprieties of their pub lic serva its an 1 hold them to 1 just ac countability for their public conduct T 1 slur over such instances is to hive more j fedin * fir the inlivilnd than respict for! Ihe n Hit.i in he oc Mipies. II mry W ir 1 B metier, in his paper, the Independent, in spa iking of this d sgrace ful debauch says : Au i now concerning the Vice Presi - dent uni the hum li I’-ing sp iota do wnioi on that day ho furnishel to tne world,! shall we speak or keep silent ! Perhaps there exists some good reason why the sa l i truth should be suppressed, but n 1 such re is ei have we yet discerned. Wi can not, therefore, j .in with our three neigli b >rs, the Tribune, the Tim s, an 1 tnu Evenin'/ Post, in ptr lulling with silence 1 the great disgrace which Andrew Johnson i inflicted that day upon his country. 11 td the tables been turned, and a similar ol tense been committed by George H. Pen dleton, wo can hardly believe that those journals would have laid their lingers on their lips in a hush of criticism. As fir ourselves, we trust we are habitually slow to speak ill of public man, even of such as deserve dispraise ; and certainly, among the journals which have aforetime been hearty in their kind words of Andrew Johnson, none have been heartier than this sheet; but if such an appearance as he presented during his inauguration is to pass without public rebuke, in these and in other newspaper columns, then there no longer remains to the press any duty of impartial criticism of men in official sta tions. Once or twice, wo have felt it our duty to speak against the excessive -use of) intoxicating liquors by some of our public j men. It may be asked—What is the duty of a public journal in such cases ? It seems to us plain. We hold that if a | public man is drunken in a private compa ny be is not amenable to comment in the newspapers; but if he be drunkeji while) acting bis part on a public occasion, his offense is against the public, and should never be shielded from just punishment of public censure. In the Senate chamber, * on the 4lh of March, in presence of the Senate, of the House, of tne Cabinet, of the Supreme Court, of the diplomatic) corps, of tho newspaper press, of a, gallery of ladies, and (during part of the time) of ■ the President of the United States—and on an occasion to be forever historic —the - Vice President elect presented himself to take his solemn oath of offi ie in a state or intoxication. Not in anger but in sorrow do we'chronicle this fact, which we have no just right to suppre-s, A few weeks ago, the speaker of tho House of Repre- j setnlives was commanded by vote of that body to administer a public reprimand to a member who hud commuted a similar of fense wuh less conspicuous shame. If a member of Congress is to be puni-hed for such an act shall the President of the Sen ate remain unpunished ? Of course, the- Senate will choose its own method of, reaching the case; a method which we trust, will he kind, moderate, and ju>t \ dint, meanwhile, it is the plain duly of \ Mr. Johnson either to apologize fir his conduct or to resign his office. In the name of au insulted people, we are com pelled to demand that so great an affront to tho dignity ol the republic shall be) made to bear a fit p unity, atonement, and warning. The Washington correspondent of the New Y tl< Commercial Advertiser, anotb j er leading Republican paper, under date of March Gib, says ; “Ac unfortunate oecnrrenev on Satnr-) day has provoked many angry comments, and Mr. Tliad Stevens declares that were the House of Representatives in session, i he should move the impeachment of a pub lic functionary," And the same paper editorially, uses the following language : “When Mr. S eward announced, more than a year ago, that Mr. Lincoln must be re-elected in order that ho might be Piesidont of the whole country, it seemed at least logical that Mr. Hamlin should ibe included in the category Thu Balti more Convention thought differently, how j ever, and so summoned Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, to the second office in the government. On Saturday he made his) maiden speech as Vice President When | we say that this was the most disgraceful i utterance ever made by a public man in this country, we. use the mildest term that ] can be applied to it. There can be- but 1 one excuse for this shameful speech, and j that is more shameful than the speech it self. It is charity to suppose that the spir j it of "Old Bourbon” had ap nheosis in the Vice President’s chair. Mr. Johnson insulted and outraged all who stood around 1 him—the Chief Justice, the Cabinet, the j | foreign ministers, and the Senate Most | of all he insulted the people of the United ) States, and dognded the high plaoo where i the worthiest in this land have sal Hun- j self ha did not degrade. He fell to his natural level, there to remain four mortal years VVe will not analyze this speech ; we leave it to the judgment of our rea ders, who must r -ddon with shame at the thought that leadership in this laud is in j trusted to such Iliads as these.’’ Thus speaks tho virtuously indignant Greeley : Mr. Andrew Johnson, our now Vice President, is said to have be a demented by liquor when sworn into offiie, and to j have ma lea senseless and dis iredit ible harangue in consequence. An 1 it. is re p irted he has fallen into habits which ills i(u dify him for the high p isitioa to whioo 1 lie has been chosen. W o fervently hone that at least the l it- > ter and w irsc half of ilfis sc mill will prove untrue ; for, if it should not, the | country w-ll hi subjected to tho pum and soiadal an 1 Mr. J unison to the m irtilici j tioo insop irabl t fr nn his exon sum fr nn j offiji.

The Pe >pl i may pity ■< mmU is u ii*ii h*s fill v b'i r t i.iy | cannot abide a druikirdtu his pr sett' . i high position." Too Pittsburg G 1 i-ttn. tho let ling Re publican pipsr of Western Pennsylvania, says: “W.* have hitherto refrained fro n 0 on-) m mtiug upon the fact that the Vice Prea dout disgraced himself and the nation by , appearing h a s ate of intoxication at the 1 time of his in luction into office au 1 inflict ing upon bis hearers a maudlin, drunken speech, net because we hoped thereby to hide the unpleasant fact from our readers, er shrink from condemning the grievous j fault committed, but because we hoped that a little delay would briug us some mitigation of the report, and render the transact) m less disgraceful than was at Urst stated. We have waited, however, in vain ; and now that the facts are be yond dispute, wo join with tne Republi can press of the country in telling the Vice President that having utterly dis graced himself, subjected his party to tire keenest mortification, and made his conn t y a laughing stock in the eyes of the world, the least reparation he can make is to resign. After this exhibition of himself, he cannot occupy that place any longer with honor or credit. His good ) name is lost, and he cannot regain it by holding on to a place he has disgraced.— ) If he attempts to hold on to it he will ' thereby shew himself insensible to shame, and therefore ail the more unfitted for that high position. But what if be does not resign ? Then \ let him be impeached, or reached in some other way by the action of the Senate.’’ i The Franklin Repository another lead ! ing Republican paper, edited by C d. Mc- Clure, says: “That Hon. Andrew Johnson gave a most appalling exhibition of either shame less debauchery or hopeless insanity, when ! ho was inaugurated as Vice President of ! the United Sates, is a fact too patent to ! admit of denial or palliation. When called I upon to assume the second official posi- 1 lion within the gift of the Nation, consti tuting him the presiding offi-er of the first legislative tribunal of tne Republic, and the possible successor to the Presidency itself, he ranted and raved like a madman, I and made every friend of the givetnmeni bow in the deepest hu niliation and shame. This spectacle was witnessed by the rep resentatives of every foreign government, by grave F niters, by most of the heads ; of departments an I by crowded galleries ; | and it is a fact too terrible, alike in its: 1 immedi to and ultimate consequences, to’ ! tie excused So far from attempting to conceal .it, it tiecoun s tbo imp rative du y of every one to demand that the shame with which tt-o Nation has been blotted shall be effaced us fur as it may be by his 1 prompt resignation, and the possibility 1 of the destiny of this great and fearfully j 1 imperilled ■ overunn ut falling into such 1 hands, precluded beyond contingency ; It is alleged in extenuation of the con- j j duct of the Vice President that he was la- I boring under temporary derangement; | but if so it is but an aggravation of the (danger (0 which the government must be , exposed by his occupancy of the Vice Pres ■ iii ntial chair. If his disgraceful conduct was the result of debauchery, he might ■ possibly redeem himself, however iitdeli j bio the stain he has already inflicted upon i j the fame of the people who have loaded ■ him with honor; but if he was insane, | then there can bo no hope, and his re moval becomes an imperious duty. But we submit that, in either case, be should vacate his position. Jf he has given a dis play of drunkenness on an occasion of all j others calculated to wound and humiliate ! the National bear* and pride, there can be but one atonement for it, and that is his voluntary retirement; and if mental ab j errations have fallen to his lot, and his j reason totters when most needed in the ! public service, the Nation cannot feel any | sense of security while he fills the most ; responsible trust to which he has been i chosen. ’’ Tile Springfield (Massachusetts) Repub- Ha in of the 14th inst., one of the leading Republican papers of this country, refers to Johuson in the following language : “It would have been thought that after ■ the exhibition which Mr Vice President i Johnson made of himself on inauguration ; day, he woul I be more careful of himself i in public We are informed, however, upon private but entirely credible authori ty. that the Vice President was so far stu pified with liquor at the inauguration ball I that, some of his friends were obliged to carry him home. We would gladly dis i believe this, but the source from which it cames leaves no room for doubt.’’ For the /Ejia ani Intelligencer. Emily Chester.

Tieb > >k has iiesn sub-1 ; j ictii I to two classes of criticism ; it lias j | been ovor-rated by its admirers, and his i bean most ungenerously d lalt with by its I enemies. It is, however, generally read, i | which proves conclusively that it has soma I attraction ; for we do uot seek to read j wh it is uninstructive and unentertainiog. Wc thick it well written, its characters interesting, and think it deserves an hon ored place among that class of sensational | novels which live their little d ty of popu larity—make their never fading imprint on the minds of the shifting crowd and I then arc pushed out of sight, by new stars in the literary world, destined like if to shoot before our startled gaze, and banish away. The story is founded on the supposition that there is a law of gravity implanted by nature in man, and that it attracts him i to some of his own species, and draws him away from others—by an attraction and repulsion over which he has no control.— Tuus Emily Chester admires Mix Cramp j ton’s intellect; her intellect gravitates to his intellect —'ou; she is drawn by a stron ger gravitation from him, by an instinctive repulsion of her whole nature, if Max but ! touches her baud in saying giod-byo.— : By misfortune, she is loft homeless and an | orphan. She marries Max, and is au un- | happy woman She has erred against the j law of her nature M.ny argue that this theory is “wick- ; ed," “unnatural;’’ we are not of this class, j but are persuaded by our own instinctive likings au I disliking*, that a philosophy j ■ might be written (if a man could be found ; wise enough),.which would prove the law | j of g avity applied to the immaterial as I well as to tu liter—to the spirit as well as ! I the bidy. We do uot see why it should j be thought so strange a theory, that the | Creator who has, by the mutual attraction of the sun, m inn and stars and the earth, [ caused all the grand operations wc read of ! in astronomy —we do not see why He may not have improsse I upon the spirit of man a law of attraction and repulsion j to li is fellow-men which, if obeyed (for he j has left, the will free), would lead to hap pin"ss io friendship, content in marriage. 1 And wuat if lie has ordained Ilimstdf j the Centre of Gravity, towards which our spirits tend when they were launched into 'his world, which has so many at tractions and repU'sions, and thit leaving 1 free the hitman will, He rewards and pun j Uiies us, with less ground of excuse, inas much as wo were free to obep the law | which impels us to do right. If it were | not a violation of onr nature to deviate ; from the “straight, way,” it seems to us it would uot be so heinous. _ M. “Gently the ‘dews’ are o’er m° stealing,” as the man said when be had had five bill* presented to him at on# time. YOL. IX.—NO. 13. Mount Ararat. Mount Ararat is 6000 feet higher than j Etna, and 1528 feet higher than Mount ‘ j Blanc—the latter the point of greatest ‘ elevation in Europe. It is detached from 1 j the other mountains of Asia, and is divi > iled into two conical peaks Sir R ibert Porter paints in vivid colors the inagnifi | cence of the spectacle when he first, came 1 in sight of Ararat, maj -sticully rising from ■j a widely extended green plain, fertilized I by the clear waters of the Aras, (ancient ; i Araxas) and covered by Armenian vil lages. In various points of view, the summit has a striking resemblance of a ship—a fact which has been recorded by all travelers to the spot, and the whole country around is full of traditionary stories relative toaNoah’s ark and the flood. It is a common belief among the Ar menians and Persians, that the remains of the ark still exist on the summit. Several ! attempts have been made to reach the top of the mountain, but rarely have any such 1 | attempts succeeded. M iving sands which I threaten to overwhelm the traveller, flinty I roads which out his sbogs to shreds, ter riblo precipices, with overhanging rooks, i and ab ve all, nests of snakes have oou ] stantly struck terror into the stoutest I hearts, and nearly in all cases induced the ; abandonment of the enterprise. At Ervin, the Armenians show the spot where Noah I first planted the vine, and the town of ! Nakbdjovau (place of descent) is believed 1 to mara the spot where the patriarch first j settled on quitting the ark. To “Bee” or Not to Be !—A small j privateer with forty or fifty men, having on board some hives full of bees, was pur j sued by a Turkish galley, manned by five 1 hundred seamen and soldiers. As soon as the latter came alongside, the crew of the privateer mounted the rigging with their hives, and hurled them down on the deck of the galley. The Turks, astonished at this novel mode of warfare, and unable to | defend themselves from the stings of the enraged bees, became so terrified that they i thought of nothing but how to escape their j fury, while the crew of the smill vessel, j defended by masks an I gloves, flew upon j their enemies, sword in hand, and captur | ed the vessel, almost without resistance. 1 D iring the confusion occasioned in a time >f war, a nob of peasants assembled in II mnstein, in Thuringia, attempted to I pillage the hou-e of the pirish minister, who, having in vain employe 1 all iiiselo | q iance to dissuade them from their design, j ordered the domestics to bring his bee i lives, an I throw them iu the middle of | the furious mob The olFiat was what | might be exp'otei— icy were imma liately put to flight, aud happy to escape j unsung. . What is av Inch ok Bun?—'The | late weekly return of the British Rcgis | tra General gives the following interest i rig information in respect to rainfall: Rain fell in Lmdou to the amount of forty-throe inches, which is equivalent to j forty-three tons of ram per aero The rain fell during last weok, varied from thirty tuns per acre in Elinburg, to two hundred and fifteen tuus per acre In Glas gow. An English acre consists of 6,282,- 659 square inches; and an inch deep of i rain on an acre yields 6,272,240 cubic | inches of water, which, at 277,274 cubic inches to the gallon, m ikes 22,622 gal : lons ; and as a gallon of distilled water | weighs ten pounds, the rainfall on an aero I is 226,225 pounds avoirdupois ; but 2,240 pounds are a tou, and consequently, an | inch deep of rain weighs 100,993 tons, or j nearly one hundred and one tons per aero. : For every one hundredth of an inch a ton lof water falls pur acre. If any agricul turist were to .try the experiment of dis tributing artificially that which Nature so bountifully supplies, he would soon feel inclined to “rest an 1 bo thnkfnl.” A Good Gun. —At th • Hotel in Tlairo, they are not u Hcd for dispatch in filling orleru for meals. If a warm din ner is ordered some time is taken to cook j it. Nat long since I stopped share, an I j sat down at a table with an elderly gen | tleman, who ordered a squirrel. I waited | some time for my dinner, but was almost I through, and the old gentiumm was stil : waiting for his squirrel. Bat bis patienee was at last exhausted, anl be beckoned | the steward and said : ‘•His the min got a good gun ?" j “What man ?" asked the stewird. “The man that’s gme to shoot the ! squirrel I or lered,” said the old gentle man, wii.h great gravity. Just then I choked, and did not hear the steward's answer, but I saw him dis appear, and in few seconds the oli genie- I man was devouring his squiarol with ap | parent relish. a®* ‘Wife,’’ said a broker, a few days ] since, “do you think I shall ever be worth $50,000?” “Ain’t I worth that to you ?” said the confiding spouse. | “Y-e s,” hesitatingly replied the other I half, “but I can’t put you out at interest.” Jfety-A New York man, who had not j been out of the city for year-*, fainted j away in the pure air of the country. He j was only resuscitated by putting a dead j fish to his nose, when be slowly revived, exclaraing, “Thai’s geod; it smells like home !” t&T When Ald- rman GUI died, his wife ordered the undertaker !o inform the Court ot Aldermen of the event. He wrote to this effect: “I am desired to inform the Aldcmon, that Mr, Alderman Gill died last night by order of Mrs. Gill.”
