Called from a retirement which I had sup-
fosed was to continue for the residue of my
ife, to fill the Chief Executive Office of thi
great and free Nation, 1 appear before you,
fellow-citizens, to take the oaths which the
Constitution prescribes, as a necessary quali
fication tor the performance of its duties.
And in obedience to a custom coeval with
our Government, and wh'it I believe to be
your expectations, I proceed to present to
you a summary of the principles which will
govern me in the discharge of the duties
which I shall be called upon to perform.
It was the remark of a Roman Consul, in an
early period of that celebrated Republic, that
a most striking contrast was observable in
the conduct of candidates for offices ol pow
er and trust, before and after obtaining .hem,
they seldom carrying out, in the tatter case,
the pledges and promises made in the former.
However much the world may have improv
ed, in many respects, ic the lapse ot up
wards of two thousand years since the ie
mark was made by the virtuous and i'idi:
naut Roman. 1 fear that a strict ex niiiniti n
of the annals of some of the moiern elec
tive governments, would develop iimlar
instances of violated confidence.
Although the fiat of the People has pone
forth, proclaiming me the Chief Magistrate
of this glorious Union, nothing upon their
part remaining to be done, it may be timti.iln
that a motive may exist to keep up ' - .'. n
sion under which the v m - u, ..-.it.
have acted in relation to my i'.ci.''- :in.t
opinions: and neihups then- mat Ie some in :
this assembly who h ive come I ete either
prepared to condemn those I b:i! now ile-i
liver, or, approving them, to doubt the since -
rity with which tlfev are uttered. Cut the;
lapse of a few months will confirm or di-iel
their fears. The outline of principles m
govern, and measures to lie adopted, by an
Administration not yet begun, will soon ie
exchanged for immutable histot v . and 1 s'i i!i
stand, either exonerated bv my ctniim vmeii.
or classed with the mass of those who prom
ised that they might deceive, and flittered
with the intention to betray. However
strong may be my present purpose to realize
the expectations of a magnanimous and con
fiding People, I too weU understand the dan
gerous temptations to which I shall be ex
posed, from the magnitude of the power
which it has been the pleasure of the Peo
ple to commit to my hands, not to place my
chief confidence upon the aid of that Almigh
ty power which has hitherto protected me.
and enabled me to bring to favorable issues
other important but still y really interior
trusts, heretofore confided to me by my
me oroaa tounuation upon which our
Constitution rests bcingthe People a brc.itli j

make, change, or modify it it can be assign

so as to prouuee the greatest good to the
greatest number. But, with these broad
admissions, if we would comp ire the sove
reignty acknowledged to exist in the mass
of our People, with the power claimed by
other sovereignties even by tloe which
hare been considered inot purely Democra
tic, we shall find a most essential diilerence.
All others lay claim to power limited only
by their own will. The majority of our
citizens, on the contrary, possesses a sove
reignty with an amount of powor precisely
equal to that which has been -'ranted to the u
by the parties to the national co i.pact, and !
nothing beyond. V'e adn:t of no C.oveni-1
