There seems to ba altogether too many of this class of parsons M the present day, and a sad sisrht tbey are. irresolute, indolent, doing nothing, waiting for tarn in the tide instead of breasting the wit- i ters like men in earnest. I heir province ms ta be to wait ; not to wait, as baud in i',J n up ,9B her mistress, bat to wait in lisrlessne-a am) loth, while the diligent and persevering brush by them, has tea on, and seen re the prizo.

They ball be garden-men that have some flowers for awry month, and that are always fragrant and redolent of blossom and Rail. Give me a haadred such men, and I will defy the infidel world. ' I will take them and bind them into a Hvtna; volume, and with them I will make the work! believe. It only takes about one man la s koadred years to make the world believe. Bttcktr. , rOK AHO FLAT. ,1 Let it here be remarked that recreation -nn be fully enjoyed only by the man who bus am earnest occupation. The end of the Work is to enjoy leisure ; but to enjoy leisure yow most have jrone throujrh work, l'lay time atast come after schookime, otherwise it ' loses its savor. Play, after all, is a relative thing ; it is not a thing 'which has an absolute Mwtestee. There is no such thin;; as play, ox eapt to thl worker. It comes out lr contra.it. .Tut wtzile upon white, and you can hurdly se- - Wet it j pat white upon black, and how plain it ! Light your lump in the sunshine, ami it 'ie nothing; yoa must have darkness round it to awake its prescuce felt. And besides thii, great part of the enjoyment of recreation ajonsiats in the feeling that we have earned it i fcy previous hard work. One goes out for tlie afternoon walk with a light heart when one baa done a good task since brcukfaat. '. It is one thing for a dawdling idler to set off . t tee Continent or to the Highlands, just be eavitae be is sick of everything around him ; and quite another thing when a hard wrought Ban, who is of some use in life, ei'ts off as gay a a lark, with the pleasant feeling that he lias brought some worthy work to an end, ou the Tielf-attme tour. Aud then a busy man finds a teliah to simple recreations ; while a man who ' baa nothing to do finds all things wearisome, and thinks that life is "used up;" it takes something quite out of the way to tickle that indurated palate ; you might as well prick the .bide of a hippopotamus with a needle as to ex cite the interest of that blaze being by any amusement which is not highly spiced with tbe "cayenne of vice. And that certainly has a ' powerful effect. It was a glass of water the wicked old French woman was drinking when ahe said, "Oh, that this were a sin, to give it reliah." A Country Parson Bfcreations. TSTJE HEABTS. ' Hearts are of several kinds and of widely different natures. First, there arc walled up . hearts ; and tbess are of two kinds : about ' one kind the wall is high aud strong, and to ' aormount it is a work of extreme difficulty ; bat if you get inside you have entered Eden. Fragrant, and sweet, and fair, as the visions Bern in dreams, is that enclosed garden ; and r It it worth hard labor to gain admission there. " The other has a wall as high and strong, and fall as hard to cet over : and wheu at last, with torn flesh aud dislocated joints, yon have sealed it, you wish you hudu't, for there is othinsr inside but rocks and cold water. The ' trouble with these two descriptions of hearts if that lis impossible, to distinguish the one , from the other nntil you have almost worn yourself out in climbing the walls. Another . kind of heart is that which bus nolhiug t . fcnee it in, lies open to the passage of all men end cattle ; a waste, unfruitful field, of no use to anybody, and less to its owner. But ibere fa another kind of beart--a rare creation, but . a real one whose wall is low nnd almost hid by flowers. The birds niukc. their nest3 it it. ' and sing as they swing upon its swaying twigs aod festooning vines. Beyond tbe wall, itself !' a thing of fragrance, beauty and joy, lie the enchanting gardens. Delightful bowers invite - the way worn traveler to enter and repose. Spirits of love aDd beauty beckon the sad and ;. lonely ones to the feast of souls ; ana a cnurru f 4 Kght and glory hover ou the whole joyous - air. Thw tbe true type of heart. BE CONTENT. - FjTrbna would Erst, conquer Africa, and - then Asia, and then live merrily at his ease ; bot when Cvueus. the orator, told him he anient do that already, rested satisfied, con dawning his own folly. Thou mayest do the like, and be composed in 'thy fortune. Thou bast enough. He that is wet in a bath, can be aw more wet if he be flung into the ocean ' itself; and if thoa bast all the world, or a olid I of cold as big as the Work, thou canst sot have more than enough. Enjoy thy self at tene-th. and that which thoa hast; the mind is all ; be content, thou are not poor, bot rick. I say, then, add no more Wealth bot diminish thy desires ; if you wish to be wealthy, despise riches ; that is true plenty, not to have, bat not to want riches ; it is more : (lory to condemn than to possess, and to want nothing m divine.

I'd hearo tell of 'em and I'd seen 'em, with their broad brim'd hals and long wastid coats ; bat I'd never cam into im meject coo tack with 'em, and I'd sot 'em down as lackio inle!!eck as I'd never seen 'em to my Show leastways if they cam they was disguixed in white people's doe, so I did'i know Vin. . Bat in the .Spring of 18, I got swampt in the exterior of New York State, one dark and stormy night, when the winds Blae pity- usly, aod I wia forced to tie up with the bonkers. . , . I I was toilin threw the mud, when in the ; dim vinter of the fnrtur I obwrved the gleams ! of a Uwi.T ranJie. Tiein a hornet's nest to ! Biy oif lilt's tail to kiuder encourage him, I rfhed the place. I knockt at the dtiur, which was opened onto me by a tall, sliek-faeed, solum look in iudividooaL, who turu'd out to be a EUler. . "Mister Shaker," sed I, "yon see before yon a Babe in the Woods, so to speak, and he axes shelter of you." "Yay," sed the Shaker, and he led tbe way into the house, another Shaker bein sent to put my bosses and wagin under kiver. A soluin female, looking sumwhat like a last year's bean pole stuck into a long meal ba, cam in and axed me was I atbnrst and did I hunger T to which I urbanely auserd "a few." i She went orf and I iodhvered to open a conversusbun with the old man. "Elder, I spect t" sed I. ' "Yay," said he. '..' "Helth's good, I reckon V ' "Yay." "What's tL-e wajfes of a Elder, when he undcrderstans his biziness or do yon devote your survices gratooitus V "Yay.".... "Stormy night, sir?" "Yay."

' "If 1 niny be so bold, kind nir, what's the price of that peowler kind of weskit you wear, inclnodin trinnnia's ?" 1 Yay 1" - I pawsed a miitit, and then, thiukin I'd be fasvsiius with hint and see how that would go, I slapt bim on the shoulder, bust into a barty larf, and told him that a a yager he had no liviu ckal. - 1 - Hejiimpt up as if Bilin water had been squirted into his ears, groaned, rolled his eyre toards the eeulin and sed : "You're a man of sin!" Ho then walkt out of the room. Jest then the female in the eaeal bag stuck her bead into tbe room and statid that re freshments awaited the weary traveler; and I sed if it was vittles she tnent, the weury trav- ler was agreeabUs ad I folkred her into the next room. 1 sot down to the table and the female in the meal bag pouted out some tea. She sed nothing, nnd tr hve minutes the only living thiug in that room was a old wooden clock, which tickt in a subdood and bashful manner in the comer. This dethly stillness made me oueasy, aud 1 autermiucu u ia:n to iuc ie- male or bust. So 1, "marruige w agin your rules, I bieeve, uutrm !" "Yay." Tbe sexes liv strickly apart, I spcet V -Yay." .

She was upwards of 40 and homely as a stump fence, but I tkawt I'd tietil uer.l "I dou't like men V slie sed very short. "Wall, 1 -duniio," aes I, "they're' rayther a popular part of tbe popalashun.

"No," sei I, "it ain't my stile." I bad now histed in as big a load of per- vishuns as I could carry comtortaule, aim leaning back in my cheer, coniiuenscd picking my teeth with a fork. The female went out, leaviue me all alone wild toe ciock. i naau t sot thar long before the Elder poked his hed . . . - ,, , in at the door. "lou re a man oi sin, ne sed, and croancd and went away. Directly tha cum two young Shakeresses, as pntty and slick looking gals as I ever met. It is troo they was dressed in meal bags like the old one I met previsly, and their stitny, silky bar was hid from sight by long white cans, sich as I spoae female gosta wear ; the r eves sparkled liKe annuoos, tueir cneess was like roses, and they was charming enuff to make a man throw stones at his granmoth er. if they axed him to. Tbey commenst cleariu away the dishes, casting shy glances at me all the time.

The Shakers axed me to go to their meetin, as they was to hav sarrices that mornin, so I put on a eleau biled rug and went. The meetiu house was as neat as a pin. Tbe floor was white as chalk and smooth as glass. The Shakers was all on hand, in cleuu weskits and meal bags, ranged ou the floor like oiiHiugtery companies, the mails on one side of tbe room aud the femaiis on tothcr. They commenst clapping their bands and singin and dancin. They dauced kinder slow at Inst, but as they got wanned up they shaved it down very brisk, I tell you. Elder Uriah, in particier, cxhibertid a right smart chance of spryness in his legs, considerin his time of life, and as be cum a double shuffle neer when; I sot, I re warded him with a approviu smile and sed : " Uood boy ! Uo it, my gay and festiv cuss !" " You're a mau of siu ! " he sed, contiiieriu his sbuffLv. The Sperret, as they called it, then moved a short fat .Shaker to sny a few remarks. He sed iliiy was ail Shakers aud all was eknl. They was the purest and selcctest people on tbe yearth.. Other people was sinful as they cjuid be, but Shakers was all right. Shakers was all goin kerslap to the 1'romist Land, and nobody want guiu to stand at the gate to bar 'em out. if they did, they'd jfit run over. The Shakers theu danced aud sung agio, aud arter they was threw, one of 'cm axed me what I tkawt of it. Sex I, " What duz it signcrfy t " What ? " sez he. " Why this jumpin np and singiu ? This long weskit bizuess, and this anti-matrimony iiLH; ? . My Trends, you air neat aud tidy. Your lauds is flowin with milk and honey. Your brooms is fine, aud your apple fass is honest. .

You air quiet and dou't disturb nobody. For all this 1 give you credit. But your religiou is small pertaters I must say. You mope away your lives here in single retcbadness, and as yoa air all by yourselves nothing ever conflics with your pecooler idees, except when Human Nater busts out among you, as I understand she sometimes do. I giv Uriah a sly wink here, which made the old feller squirm like a speared Eel. Yon wear long weskits and long faces, and lead a gloomy life iudeed. No childreu's prattle is ever beam around your harthstuns yon air in a dreaiy fog all the time, and you treat the jolly sunshine of life as tho' it was a thief, drivio it from your door3 by them weskits, and meal bags, aud pecooler noshuns of yourn.

BXcClernand on "Coercion-,, The Peoria Blade publishes tbe following straightforward nnd sensible letter from the Hon. John A. McClernand, on the misuse of the phrase "coercion:" Washington, Jan. 22. P. S. Read, Esq.: Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Blade, containing an eminently jut criticism upon' what has been . miscalled "coercion." ' 'Tbe word .'coercion,'" in its present appli cation to the seceding States, is a term coined by Disunionist for the purpose of misleading the public miud. Nobody, certainly no Dem ocrat, proposes to subjugate or invade a sece ding State. !. , ' The idea of forcing a State to perform du ties which must depend upon volition, is sim ply absurd, and the coercion alarmists know it. The true question is whether the United States Government wilt submit to the coer cion of the seceding States whether it will encourage the spoliation of public property of its forts, arsenals, custom houses, &c, by abstaining from any proposition to prevent such a result? This is the question, and you have very clearly and forcibly stated! it; and this I understand to be the effect of oar Dem ocratic State Convention's resolutions.

DAVIS AT ETEPHEXSOS WARLIKE. ; This inflated bigot made a speech at Ste phenson, on Thursday night, overflowing with blood and thunder. Tennessee is not scared ! tier sons have seen the elephant ! . , Can Jeff Davis scare Tennessee? ne says that the border States will come into the Cottonocracy in less than sixty days. We will simply say that Tennessee has declared for the Stars and Stripes, and that vile trait ors, such as be is, had better be looking out for a ''safe retreat in some vast wilderness some contiguity of space," in which to hide his head from an indignant and outraged people. He boasted of his preparation for war ! Tbe same blusterer, in a speech a few years ago, ventured to slander the Tennessee volun teers. We know what we say, when we as sert that, with all his bluster, Tennessee could, if eo disposed, subdue the whole Cotton ocracy in s short time. He calculates how on soldiers, of Tenncssje to aid him in his wicked add fiendish purpose or breaking up this glorious Government. lie is as prond and as vain as Beelzebub. Ho thinks that he holds the '-kingdoms of the world, and that the powers thereof," are in the hollow of liia hand. He is looking for the English Government to bow to hiin. He says the English Government will acknowledge the Cottonocracy. This is a'l nonsense. Tho English Govern ment, as well as all others, know how to treat the flag of the Uuited States, and so will Jeff" Davis. Let him attempt to subdue the Fed eral Government, let him fire at Fort Sumter, or at any other fort of the United States, where our flag uow fljats, and he is as sure to be hung as that sun will rise to-morrow morn ing, unless lie runs, like coward, to a country beyond the reach of Tennessee. We know hundreds of men in his seceding Cottonocracy, who are ready to tie tbe rope for the. hang man. Jvff Davis has been producing discontent, and teaching treason, as long as we can stand it. H has been a vile couspirator aui.ist his government for years. There is no use iu soothing our people any loeger. Traitors must suilL-r, unless they stop their treason. We may be asked to be pa tient. How in the name of High Heaven, can a man be patient when a traitorous flag is flamiled in our face ? when a traitor conies to our very border, and talks treason to our country openly ? . He talks of sacking cities. Yi!e rebel ! Inflated bigot ! Let him try the Teiinessecans. whom lie bo basely slandered. Let him try Nashville. Oar readers must indulg us a little. We cannot forbear to denounce treason ; and if we cease to do so, '-may our rij;ht hand for get her cunning." We have borne with treason as lonr as it i possible to do so. Talk of leasing down our fair fabric of Government ! Never ! Never ! ' Jeff Davis is on the road to the gallows, and his followers had better take care. An indig nant public will not forever brar insult and treason-plotting; We have lived happily uml prosperously for tl.rje quarters of a cn'ury. and wo know that Tennessee will never give up tliis free" uml happy country. Lft this vile traitor and his foul minions come. I enn?ssee has never torsatcen tne glorious flag of free and happy America, and by the Eternal, she never will !

The report of the Hou3c Committee on the fraudulent abstraction of Indian bonds and the circumstances connected therewith, illustrate the usual result of investigations into official plunderings. The horse is gone but precise ly who took him and where he is, remain a mystery but it is recommended that the stable door be looked after in future. This is no fault of the Committee. They are put on the track of expert rogues, who have Ions previous had the field to themselves; and were as ingen ious in concealing their frauds as in perpe trating them. But still, enough has been dis covered to disgrace the country, and to had to the bopoathat condign punishment will yet be meted out to some of the parlies. 1 hese, so far as the report of the Committee extends, range themselves about three central figures, which, for the sake of brevity and lucidity, wc shall take up in cur own order. Wm. H. Russell is the head of the house of Russell, Majors & Waddell, a firm widely known ns contractors with tho War Depart ment for transporting army provisions over the Western and Southwestern plains, and largely employed in connection with the Utah expedition. The firm have had the reputation of doing a very profitable busiuess, but which rcqaires a large amount of money to c.xrry it ou. While under this i3CeSiiiy it appears that Mr. Russell hears of a .Nir. ISaiiey at Washington who, lie is led to believe, ean ac commodate him. He goes there, meets Bailey in the War Department, which is not his place, and is introduced by the Chief Clerk and inti mate' personal friend of Gov. Floyd, then Sec retary of War. He is accommodated by In dian bonds fraudulently passed over to him by Bailey, who is their custodian, to ihe amount of 3150,000. This was nliout the middle of July lost, and the transaction thns beg-m was repeated until the sums reached $8"(,(l00. Previous to this and, as il is said, introductory to It, Mr. Russell had negotiated acceptances to a large amount mad ? in hu favor by the Secretary of War, in advance of his (Russell's) earnings, and contrary to the praeticj of the Government. Thus far Mr. Russell, whose trial is yet to take place. Godard Bailey, born in South Carolina, lately resident in Alabama, came to Washing ton in 1&57, bankrupt in fortune, but well sup plied with recommendations, and was appoint ed clerk in the Department of the Interior, to have charge of the Indian Trust Bonds. "His salary was $2,000 per annum, and he was a man whose reputation had gone abroad as ca pable oi helping along the great house of Rus sell, Major 4, Waddell. He did it by abstract ing the bonds before referred to, which were kept in such a loose way that the theft wa easily concealed for a long iitne. After thus a'ulinsc Mr. Russell, Bailey's own deposits of savings with his bankers went np to five or six thousand dollars. Bailey kept his official ac counts all fair on the face, and the robbery was incidentally discovered through the fideli ty of one of the auditors. The trial -of Mr. Bailey will probably fill out the details of this outline. - Thus Tar we have been d'aUng wiih SS70. 00;) thieves now w.! rnrrs? . -!i'tan-.-iti'V ji lntHi.iiis. J,ru !;.' l- i A.

But there is necessarily some uncertainty about the balance yet out. These acceptances were mostly in advance of earnings, aud were unprecedented. Senator Benjamin testifies that he unfolded their true character to Secre tary Floyd eighteen months ago, and received the assurance in return that no more shonkl be issued ; and yet tbe dates show that Floyd, sub sequently to that time, issued further accept ances to the amount of $24.63,000. Now who has got the money ? The accept ances and tbe bonds were duly negotiated and went floating over the eountry, and somebody took the ready money. .The Committee do not go beyond the three parties mentioned. There is no trace of more than the five or six thousand dollars that have gone into Bailey's hands. Nothing is said of Floyd in this con nection. It s made evident that Russell could not have used it at all in his business, as he regularly received his pay during the whole time. But, significantly enough, the confidential business agent of Russell's house, who. was likely to bs engaged in all these transactions, could not ba found by the Con., mittee, though diligent search was made for him. A second significant circumstance is that Russell refused to give any explicit an swer to this question, viz: "Did you ever, directly or indirectly, (five to any person any consideration, or make to any person any present for services rendered to yoa connected wiih yonr business with tho War Department?" A third ground of suspicion appears in the fact that, by agreement between Bailey . and Russell, the Indian Trust bonds were to be re turned within ninety days, but this time was afterward extended to the tth o( March, 1861, the time of Mr. Lincoln's inauguration. Per haps a fourth circumstance to be taken into account in this connection, is thj mixing up of Floyd's and Bailey's 'transactions, through the chief clerk an intimate friend of the former, who was at the same time doing all in his pow er to equip the cotton States for their present rebellion against tha Government. May not then, a large amount of this money have been devoted to the same nefariout purjyjsc T The question is worth considering, a! id has more foundation ihan the above considerations would by themselves lend to it. ' A t any ra'e. the people of this Union have be.-n swindled out of six millions of dollars by tho most corrupt gang of men that evor got into power. Boston Journal. - Tha treason of ocretarv Toncsy. , The Special Committee appointed- to eft quire into the condition of the- navy has., through its chairman, Mr. Dawes of Massa chusetts, made its report to the House of R.-p-rcsentaiives. The -evidence presented shows conclusively that the Secretary of the Navy has been deeply involved in tho treasonable designs of the laic Cabinet.: The report shows that on tho 16th of January, 1861, the naval force of the nation was distributed as follows: E-ist India squadron 3; Pacific squadron 7; Mediterranean squadron 3; African squadron 7 ; Home squadijm 11 ; storeships 6 ; disman tled 28. ' ' ' : : )' Of tbe "Home squadron," nearly all wore on the coasts of Cuba, Mexico and Central Amer ica, or nnder orders to sail for the South. On ly one of tho storeships was in an American port, and the receiving ship were unavailable for actnal service. Tlie n-port says: - ; -Th2 number of ships lying in port, aud dis mantled nnd unfit for service, is 28, mounting in the aggregate 8 14 guns. None of them could be repaired and put under sail short of several weeks time, and several of them would roqulre for that purpos; at. least six months. No orders have beeu issued to'put iu readi i;c s anv of them. - ! The foregoing comprises .the wh lo naval force of the country both that which is in commission and in actual service, and that which lies in port, and is from any cause una vailable in any sudden emergency. From this statement it will appear that the entire naval force available for the defence of the whole Atlantic coast nt the time of the appointment of this committee consisted of the Steamer Brooklyn, twenty-five guns, aud the store ship Relief, "two guns, while the former was of too great draft to permit her to enter Charleston harbor with safety, except at spring tides, nnd tbe latter was under orders to lh coast of Af rica with stores for the Arican squadron. Thus the whole Atlantic seaboard has been, to all intents and purposes, without defence during all the period of civil commotion and lawless violence to which the President has called our attention as "of such vast and a larming proportions" as to be beyond his pow er to chock or control. It further appears, that of the vessels which might haye been available for defence or pro tection in case of any sudden emergency aris ing at home, now at stations in distant seas or on their way thither, on the 13th of October last, the Richmond left on r coast to join the Mediterranean squadron, and the Vandalia left on the 21st of September to join the East India squadron, and about the same time the Saratoga to join the African squadron, and others to join the home squadron, then in the harbor of Vera Cruz, supporting one of the revolutionary governments of Mexico. .- . The committee revert to the important fact that not a single vessel of the twenty-eight ly ing dismantled has been put under repair,' al though nearly $650,000 appropriated for re pairs in the navy remains unexpended. Atten tion is .also .called .to Jhe extraordinary and culpable haste on the part or Secretary Toticy to accept the resie;nn! ions of Southern Offi cers. I wcmV-nine omcers nave rvsim;u eiuce the election, and in no case was there an ex planation asked before the acceptance of the resignation. In at least three instances where southern officers had joined the rebel forces, and com mitted hostile acts against the United States, official notice of their treason had beeu receiv ed by the Secretory of the Navy, from one to seven days before their resignation reached him. Yet these resignations were accepted without question, and no notice taken of the acts of mutiny and treason. In concluding, the Committee sk the passage of a vote of censure- on the Secretary of the - Navy, and the chairman gave notice that he should ak a vote on the resolution on Monday or Tuesday.

Washinqtox, March 4. ..Fellow-Citizens of the United Stales: In compliance with a custom as old as the Gov ernment itself, I appear before you to address yon briefly, and to take in your presence tbe oath prescribed by tbe Constitution of the United States, to be taken by tbe President before be euters on the execution of bis office. I do not consider it necessary, at present, for me to discuss those matters of administra- j tion, about which there is no special anxiety or excitement. Apprehension seems to exist among the people of tbe Southern States that, by the accession of a Republican administra tion, their property, and their peace, aod per sonal seCuYity are to be endangered. There has never been any reasonable cause for aoeh apprehension. Indeed the most ample evidence to the contrary has ail the while ex isted and been open to their inspection. It is found id nearly all the published speeches of him who uow addresses you. I da but quote from one of these speeches, when I declare that I have no purpose directly or indirectly to interfere with tlie institution of slavery in the States where it now exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do it. Those who nominated and elected me did so with the full knowledge that I bad made this and many similar declar ations, and had never recanted them. And more than this, they placed in tlie platform for iny acceptance, as a law to themselves, and to me, the clear emphatic resolution which 1 now read : ' lltsolvtd. That the maintenance inviolate of the rights ol the Slates and epcecially the right of each Stute, to order aud control its doniestic- institutions according to its own jitdgmcnt exclusively, is essential-to that bal ance of power on which ibe perfection and en durance of our political fabric dt p 'nd, and we deuour.ee the lawless iuvnsiou try air urnn tl force of the government of any Slate or , Ter ritory, no matter undr what pretext, as amoiur the gravest of crimes. I now reiterate these sentiment, and in do ing sv I only press upon the public attention the most conclusive tvideiico of which the cause is susceptible, that the property, p.-ace and security or no section are to be ia any wise endangered by the incoming ttdiniui-tru-tion ; I add, too, thai all the protection which, consistently with tin: Constitution and the laws can be given, will bo eheerfully given to all the .States when lawfully demanded, for whatever cause, us cheerfully to oai section as another. ' Is there much controversy about delivering of fugitives' from service or labor? Tue clans.: uow read, is as plainly written in the Consti tution as any.otb r of its provisions. No per son held to service or labor in one State, un der the laws thereof, escaped into another, shall in c insequeuce of any law or regulation thcrciu be discharged fro n such service or la bor, but shall b.: delivcreJ up ou a claim ol the party to whom such Service or labor may be due. It is scarcely questioned that this provision was intended by those who made it for re claiming of what we. call fugitive slaves and the intention of law given is the law. All members of Congress1 swear their support to the whole Constitution, to this provision us much as to any other; to the proposition, then, that slaves whose cause come within the terms of this clause and shall be delivered up, their oatlis are unanimous. Now if they would make the effort iu good temper, could they not. with nearly equal uuunimiiy, frame and pass a law by means of which to keep g.K)d that unanimous oath? These is some difference of opinion whether this clause should be enforced by national or State authority, but snrely that difference is not a very material one. If the slave is to to be surrendered, it can be of but little con sequcuce to him or to others by which author ity it is done, and should any one in any case be content that bis oath shall be nnkept, or a merely unsubstantial controversy as to how it shall be kept? Again in any law upon this subject ought not all tlie safeguards of liberty known in civilized and humane jurisprudence to be introduced so that a freeman may not in any case bo surrendered as a slave; and might it not be well at the same time to provide by law for tbe enforcement of that clause in the Constitution which guarantees that the citi zeus of each State shall be entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizeua iu tbe several States? , ; I take the official oath to-day with no men tal reservat ions, and with no purpose to con strue the Constitution or laws by any hyper critical rules ; ond while I do not choose now to specify particular ads of Congress as proper to be enforced, I do suggest that it will be much safer for all in official and pri vate stations to conform to, and abide by all these acts which stand unrepealed, than to vi olate any of them, trusting to find iinpuuity in having .them held to be unconstitutional. It is seventy-two yoarssiuce the first inau guration of a President under our national Constitution. Daring that period fifteen dif ferent and greatly distinguished citizens have in succession administered the executive branch of the Government. They have conducted it through many perils, ond generally with great success.- Y'et wth all this scopo for precedent, I now enter upon the same task for the brief constitutional term of four years un der great and peculiar difficulties. Disruption of the Federal Union, heretofore ODly mena ced. Is now formidably uttemp'ed. I hold that in eontemp'ation of imiversul law and of the Constitution, the Union of these States is lrpetnal. Perpetuity is implied, if not ex pressed, iu the fundamental liw of all national government. It is safe to assert that no government proper has a provision m its or-R-anic law for its own termination. Continue to execnte all the express provisions of our na tional Constitution and the Union will endure forever, it being impossible to dissolve it, ex cept by some action not provided for fn tbe instrument itself. Again, if the United States be not a gov ernment proper, bot an association of States iu the nature of contract merely, can it as a contract be peaceably unmade, by lest? than all the parties who mode it ? One party to a contract may violate i,t break it, so to speak, but does- it not require all to lawfully rescind it? ' Descending rrotn these general principles, wa find the proposition that frr legal contem plation the Union is perpetual, confirmed by the history of tbe Union itself. The Uniou is much older than the Constitution. It was formed, in fact, by the articles of association in 1774. It was matured ur.tr continued by the D 'claruti on of Ii)dependeiiceit 1776. L was further matured, and tho fuith if all the . ! I . .1 . . . , i . i..... i j L.tuii ai-rti-teiaii' nuirium u in L-iuiijini , uiuu w -1 w , v v i - j , p, -r- n that it should tw perpetual, by the aeticiw oi ' eonfcdiT.imm ill litSi ami unaiiv, in i m I one of the declared objects for 'ordaining" uul j and establishing the Constitution, w to tmii : ' a mora pertect u nion. t, r uy - i a mora pet ll. . n. . :r :, i... I or one only oi tne oiaie. kwuiok i lawfully poasibla, the Hnion.it I even, than NO. 49; it was before the Constitution, having lost the vital t lenient of perpetuity.- It foi o s from thews views that no State, upon its owu mere motion, can laa filly get out of the Union; that resolves and ordinances to that effect are legally void ; an't that acts of violence, within uuy States or State against the authority of the United htates, are insurrectionary or rev olutionary accordiii to circumstances. I, therefore, consider that in view of the Constitution and laws, the Union is unbroken, and to the extent of my ability, shall lake care, as the Constitution itself expressly en joins on me. that the !as of the Union be faithfully executed in all the States. Doing this I deem to lie only a simple duty on my part, and I shall perform it so fur as practica ble, unless my rightful masters, ihj American people, shall withhold tbe requisite menus, or in some manner dir. ct the contrary. I trust this will not be regarded r.s a men ace, but only as the declared purpoto o! the Union, that it will co.av.ifutinnally defend and maintain itself. In doing this there need be no bloodshed or violeuie, and there shall be none unless it So forced upon the rialiofial au thority. The power confided to me will be used to bold, occupy, and possess the property and places belonging to the Government, to collect duties and imposts; b it beyond what may be necessary for these objects, there will be no in vasion, no using of force against or amoug the people any where: ,;. Where hoslility to the United States in ar y ulterior locality, shall be. so great and so uni versal as to prevent competent resident citi zen's from holding federal offices, there will no attenrftt be made, to force obnoxious strangers unfottg the people that object. While the strict legal right may exist iu the Government to enforce the exercise of .these offices, the at tempt to do so wou'.d be so irritating, and so i arly impracticable withal, that . I deem it b -tter to forego for a time the usej of such jaieos. ...... The muil.v unless repelled, will continue to be furnished in all poiula of the Un:ou, and s i far as possible the people.. every wh.:re shall have that sens ' of perfect security, which is most favorable to calai thoughts,, and reflec- j tiou. - The cuurse here indiru'el wiH be followed unless current events ami experience will show a modification or chune to lai proper; and in every case and exigency my best discretion wid be exvrcia d according to cireuuistauces actually existing, and .with a vitew and a hope of a peaceful i-o'utioii o' the natioi.nl troubles; ami the restora iou of the fraternal sympathies and affections. . Tbut there are persons in one section or an other who sejk to d stroy the Unio i ut all e vents ami are glad of any pretext to do it, I will neither affirm or Jcty: but if taere be a 6&; I need address tliem n ) word. Tc thos., how ever, who really love the Union,' way I not speak? Before en"e.-'mg upon so grave a mut ter as detraction of our national fabric, with all its benefits, its memories and ho e-, would it uot ber Wise to ascertain previously why we Jo? Wi.l you hazard a desperate step whi e ihere is any possibility that any porliou of the ills you fly from have no n 8)' exisen'ce? While Ihe certain ills you fly to are greater Mian all the real ones yoa fly f.oin, will you risk the commission of so fearful a mistak ? All proress to be content with (he Union, if all constitutional rights can be maintained. Is it true, then, that any right, plainly written in the Constitu tion, has been denied ? I think not. Happily the human mind is so constitu ted that no- party can teach to the auda city ol' doing; this. ThinK, if yon can, of a singie iustanee :u which a plainly written provision of the constitution has ever been denied. If by the merefoie'J of numbers a m.ijoifiy sharl deprive a minority of any clearly wiiitcn c nsti tutional right, it m'fghr, in a moral point of view, justify a revolution. It cer tainly would if such a light were a vital one. But such i not our course. All the vital rights of iHW-oiities a-mi of in dividuals arc so plainly assured to them by animations and negotiations guaran teed by prohibit ions in the Constitution, that controversies neer arise concern ing thoiu. But no organic law can be Iramed with a provision1 speciti jally ap plicable to every question which may occur in practical administration. No foreaiaht van anticipate, nor any docu ment ol reasonable length contain ex press provisions for ali possible ques tions. Shall fugitives fioiu- labor he surrendered by national or State autho rity, the ConstM in ion does not expressly j say. May Congress prohibit slavery iu the Territories? J'ha Constitution does not expressly say. May-Congress pro tect slavery iu the 'i'eri itoi ie.? Tha Constitution does uot expressly say. From questions of this class i-prang all our Constitutional controversies and we divide them into majorities aud mi norities. If the miiioiity will not ac quiesce the majority must or the govern ment naust cease. Tlie. e i- no other al ternative for ooL'tiuiiing the government but acquiescence ou I lie one Mile, or tlie other. If a minority in sncli case will secede rather than acquiesce," they make a precedent which in turn will divida and ruiu them, for a uiMioiiiy of their own i will secede from them whenever a ma-I joiily lefuses to be controlled by such minority, r or insiance, wny may not any portion of a new Confederacy, a year or two hence, arbitrarily seeede again precisely as pnriions of tlie pres ent Union now claim to secede from it ? All who clierit.h disunion genltuieuts are now being educated to the exact tper of doing this. Is there 6iich perlect ideutity of interests among the States to compose a new Uuion as to pro duce harmony only and prevent renewed secession ? Plainly the ceutial idea of secession is (he osaenco oi anarchy. A majority held iu restraint by con stitutional checks aud limitations, and always chaugiug easily wkh tbe deliber ate changes of popular oj inions aod sent iment, ia tbe only true aoveriegnty of a free people. Whoever rejects il doee'of ueceshity, fly to anarchy oi despotism. Unanimity is impossible. The rule of a uiuoiity as-a perraauont arrangement is wholly inadmissible: so that rejecting the'' majority principle, anarchy aud despot- i ism, in some form, is nil that is lett. l do uot forget the position assumed by some, that Constitutional questions are are to be decided by tha Supreme Court nor do 1 deny that such' decisions must be biudiug iu any ca-c npoii tho pai'.ies to a suit, Am to the object of that suit; while they aie also entitled to veiy high respect ami consideration in nil purmiel rases by nil o'her departments of the Government; and wbiiv it is obviously posaible that such decision niny he i-nou-eons in uy given case; still the evil et lect following it being limited so that particular ease, with the chance that it may ba overruled and oaver beoonsaaa precedent for other cases, can better ba borne than conld the evils of a different practice. At the same time tha candid citizens most confess that il the policy oT the government upon the vital qnettioa effecting the whole people ia to be Hre oeably fixed by decision of the Supremo Court, the instant they are made, aa ia ordinaiy litigation between parties iu peiannal actions, the people will bava erased to be their own rulers, having to that extent, practically resigned their government into the hands of that emi nent tribunal. Nor is there in this riew any eisault npon the Court or ih judgea. It is a daty irom which they may not shrink tw decide cases properly brought be.'ore them, and it ia no fault of thira if others seek to tnrn their decision to political purposes. One lection of our country believei slavery is right and onht to be extend eJ, while the other believes it is wrong aud ought in. t to be ex ten led. Thia Is tlis only substantial dispute, for the fd gitive slave clause ol the Constitution! aud the law for the suppression b'f the foreign slave trale are each a Well en forced perhaps as any law tin ever bo, iu a communi'y where the' aioral sense of the people imperfectly supports the law itself. The great body of the neonle abide by the dry legal obligation in botb cases. Alter the eeperatiun of the se lions, the foreign slave trade, now im perfectly auppresed, would be ultimately revived without restriction ill one sec tion, while fugitive "laves now only par tially Nurretideied would not be surrta deicd at all by. the other.' ., . ;, Pjsically speitkiug, we cannot separata. V e cannot remove our respective seclione fioiu each other, nor bui'd an impassable wall between, them. A husband aat wife may ba divorctd, and go out of the presence, and beyond tha leach of each other, but tbe different parts of our country cannot do this. Tbey cannot bnt lei'ii'a'iu face to face, and an iateiconrso either amicable or hostile innst continue between" thenr. Is it possible,-then, to make that intercourse more advaatageon or more satisfactory after separating than before? Can alieua make treaties) easier than friends can make laws ? Can treaties be more faithfully enforced between alieua than laws among friends? Suppose you go to war yoo cannot fight always, and after much loss on both sides and no gain on either, yoo cease fighting, the old idetitical question As to terms of intercourse, are again opea you. This country, with itt institution, belongs to the people who inhabit if. Whenever they shall grow w.ary of the existing government they can exer cise their constitutional right if amend ing it or thuir revolutionary right to disui mher or over-throw it. I cannot be ignorant of the fact that many worthy and patriotic citizens are desirous of travfrig the national Consti tution ouicrulud. While I make to re commendation of amendments I fully recognize the lilrtfnl aulhoii:y of th people over tlie AnVrle subject to be' fief-' cised iu either of the modes piescnbe 1 in the instrument itself, and I should,' under existing circnui stances, favor ra ther than oppose a fair opportunity bting AfieVetl (he people to act tip on it. I will venture to add' that to tne the convention mode see ins preferable, inas much as it allow the' amendment to oiiginate with the people theiusel very ia :... 1 only of perniitting- them to take or reject a proposition or'ii;ina':ed by otherf, not i specially chosen foi tlie pui j o.e, and which might not be' procisely inch as they would wish to either accept, or re I use. I understand a' proposed ii eid Hient to the Conlitution, which amend ment however, I have not seen, has pass it I Congress, to the effect that the FeeVal Government shall never interfere with tho ilomaxtio institutions of the States, including that of persons held to ser vice. . To avoid a' misconstruction of what I have said, 1 depait from my purpose, not' to apeak of particular amendments so far as to lay that holding kiic'i a pr -vision to be how implied as Conktin ' tio a' law, I have no objection to its be ing made express and inevocable. A Clyibf Magistrate d'erivea' hi aiith'orrty troni the people, ami they have confirmed none upon bun to fix: term for the separation of the States. The people themselves can do this, also; if they choose; but tire executive as such has no thing to do with it. His duty is to jfdminister the piesent' Government as it comes to his hauls, to transmit il Unim paired by him to his sue essor.' Wny should there n'dt be a' parent confidence) iu the rrltiniate jbstice of tbe people? Is there any better or equal hope ia tha world? In our present differences, is neither party without faith or being ia right ol .(he Almighty Ruler of nations with his eternal truth and ju-tice be oa our side, ol the North of on yours' of tha South that tri ih and that justiee will surely prevail' b the jWtguient of this great nibiiual the American people'. By the Ir-nie of the govern nv nt under which we live this tame people bars' wisely given their pulilin servants bnt little power for carischref, awl have with' equal wisdom provided for the retura' of tiiar liule to their own hands at very short intervals. While the people retain' their virtue aod vigilance no administra-' tion, any extreme of wickedness of folly can tety seriously injure the govern'-' rrrent, iu the short space of four years. . My countrymen, oue' anil' all, think? calmly and well on this whole subject B-oihing valanble can bd lost by taking" time, if there be au object to I u ry any' of you iu hot haste to a step whioh yoq would never havetaken deliberotjly.thaf object will be frustrate I by taking time;' but no good object can be fiottr"-' ted by it.
