The Chattanooga Gii.olto say that about the 1st -of January a party or ... , . ,iii guerrillas hung the wifo and-daughlcr nf Dr. Joshua King, of lioiue, (ia., on the charge of loyalty to tho Union.

Dr. King is a rebel, and went South when Itoino was evac uated by Johnston last Spring. llrbcl u4 I'nlan ltinrU ol Sliel innii Nkw Yohk, March 7.

Tho possibility ol a junction between Sherman niid Seho- liuld is thus assured beyond all doubt, though up to March 1st, it bad not been actually effected. Tho Herald's Wilmington corres- pondonco of the 23th ult., says: Sherman's cavalry wero reported at Florence, S.

President Lincoln was inaugurated at 12 o'clock W. to day, Tho wcathqr was clear and beautiful, but on account of tho recciit rain tho streets wero filled with mud. Despito this fact, tho crowd that ossombled was exceedingly largo, and thousands proceeded to tho Capi tol to witness tho inauguration cere monies. The procession moved from Sixteenth street and Pennsylvania Av enue at 11 o'clock. President Lincoln had been at the Capitol nil day; and consequent!' did not accompany, the procession to tho scene ot tlio ceremo nies. Two regiments of the paroled corps, a squadron ot cavalry, a battery of'ar tiilery, and four companies of colored troops, formed tlie military o-corts:the .Mayor and Council men ot Washing ton, tho Couneilmen from Bultitnorit, the firemen of this city, and the tiro men from Baltimore the Good Will, Franklin and Perseverance Compa nies, each company drawing lUengine ulont:. wero also in procession. iViuong tlio benevolent societies present were Lodges of Odd Fellows and Masons, including a colored Lodgo ol the latter fraterniiy.

Frllovy Coi.'ntiivmkn: At this sec ond appearing to tako tho oath of tlio Presidential oflicc, thero is Kkb occa sion for an extended addros than there was at tlio first. Then, a statement, somewhat in dotail, of a courso to be pursued, seemed lilting and proper. Aow, at the expiration ot lotiryears, during which public, decimations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of tho great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses tlio energies ot tho Nation, little that is now could bo presented. Alio progress ot our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as ,v., .,.. ii ui.v n in , noil. llhj it iSi t tnHt rolWonably satislacto- ry and encouraging to all. With high well known to the public as to myself, hones ior tho future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured. On thoocea- sion corresK)iiding to this four years ago all thoughts wureunxioiisly direct ed to an impending civil war; all Ircaded it; all sought to avoid it. While tho iimirgural address was be ing delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving tho Union without war, insurgents wore in tho cit' seek ing to destroy it without war seek ing to dissolve tlio Union and divide tho ell'ecls by negotiation, lioth par ties 'deprecated war, but ono oftliem would mako war rather than let the nation survive, and the other would accept wur I'tillier thau let it perish, and tho war came. One-'.'ightlijof tlio whole population woro colored slaves, not distributed generally over tho Union, but local ized in tho southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and pow erful interest. All knew that this in terest was somehow tho cause of tho war, To strengthen, porpctualo and extend this interest was the object lor which tho insurgents would rend the Union by war, whilo tho Government claimed no right to do moro than re strict tho territorial enlargement of it. iS either party expected lor tho war tho magnitude or tho duration which it has already attained Neither anticipated that tho cause of tho conflict might cease, even beloro the conflict itself might cease.

Fondly do wo hope, fervently do wo pray that this might) scourge of war may spued- ily pass away; yet, if God wills that it continue until nil tho wealth piled by the bondman's two hundred and filly years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was. said three thousand years ago, so still it must bo said that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous, although with malice toward none, with charity flir all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to sco tho right, let us si rive to finish tho work. Wo are to bind up tho nation's wounds and care for him who shall have borne the bat tlo, and for his widow and for his or phans, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and with all nations. A national salute was fired. Tho procession then again moved np Pennsylvania Avenue, the Presi- dent being convoyed in an open bar- ouche.and seated with him were his son and Senator Foster of tho Committee of Arrangements. Tho President was escorted to tho. White House, alter which tlio procession separated.

The closing scenes of Congress were not disgraced by personal quarrels, lor .i - ......!. nor were tnero any prominent or noisy nianifeslations of drunkenness, as heretofore.' HEAVY I.tsT OF CONFIRMATION'S. Tho Senato, several hours before its adjournment yesterday, cleared its Executive calendar oT nil tho ponding Presidential nominations, 000 in num ber, nearly alb of a military character, which were ccnilrnied. The President yesterday sent, in the nomination of John D. Defrees for Su perintendent of Public Printing, and tho Senato unanimously confirmed it. This is a deserved compliment to tho uniform courtesy and ability which have marked this gentleman' man agement of tho Government's letter press Printing Bureau for tho past four years. OFFICE SFKKEU9. Many persons r.ro hero from a dis tance, looking after their private in terests, and seeking influence to assist them in the procurement of high as well as low positions. They do not seem to bo mindful of tho fact that thero lire to be no wholesale removals from places. The terms of about nine ten.ths of tho commissioned civil of ficers will very soon expire, This will give tho President an opportuni ty to renew their commissions or ap point others as he may think proper.

Tho Civil Appropriation bill failed to pass Congress. It was converted into an omnibus, and loaned down with all sorts of ohjectionablo amend ments, solho House concluded to kiil it. One of tho amendments which failed was that of II. Winter Davis, prohibiting Court Mai tials from trying persons not in tho military service. The resolution reducing tho paper du tv also fell to the ground, as did tho Ship Canal and Camden it Amboy schemes. With tho exception of tho civil bill all tho appropriation meas ures passed. llrpnrt oftha Soiredyy of War. Secretary Stanton sent his annual report tr-Congrcs on Friday, which he says has been delayed in order that Lieuienant-Geiicral Grant might fur nish n summary of his military opera tions; but the summary has not been received, as tho activity of the cam paign in progress demands unceasin attention. The' Secretary sayu the military events of the past year have been'ollieially published us they trans pired, und are fully known in every branch of this Government, and throughout tho civilized world. They constitute a series of successful marches, sieges and battles, attesting tho endurance and courage of tho sol diers id the United States and tho gal lantry and military skill of their com manders. Despite tho superior advantages of recruiting volunteers greater success has been rendu d in tho regular service than was anticipated. Tho result of tho volunteer recruiting service under the different calls for troops dated Feb- nary 1st, .March 1 lib, and July 18th, is given in tho report ol P-rovost Marshal- General Fry, who says, in reference to the recruitment of veteran volunteers during tho autumn of ISOil, over Dili, 0110 soldiers, who would otherwise ere this have been duUharged, wereseeur K'd for three years longer. Orgaui.a tions which would otherwise have been lost to the service were preserved and recruited, and capable and uxperienc cd ollieers wero retained in command. This force has performed an essen tial part in the great campaign of lSli f, and its inipoitance to the country can not bo overestimated. The result of recruiting in tho rebel Slates is reported as unfavorable. Tho arrest ot deserters and strag glers is continued with vigor. Thirty-; nine thousand threo hundred and nine-ty-two wero arrested between Oct. 1st, DJtitf, and Oct. 1st, ISC 1. The total number received from tho establishment of the bureau to October 1st, IHO l, is 00,700. The Veteran Ke servo Corps on October 1st, 1S(H, con sisted of "01 ollieers and 28,7:!S men. The report of the Secretary gives a summary ol the reports of tho beads of tho several bureaus connected with tho War Department, and concludes by saying the general exchange of prison ers effected under the instruction of the Department is in course of execu tion, and it is hoped that all of our prisoners who are in the bauds of tho rebels will soon bo returned. A fur loneli of thirty days is extended to them as they are returned to tho city of Aiimipolis. The war between Brazil and Uru guay is in active progress, Paraguay bavinireomo to the assistance ol tho Uruguayans. Tho object of the strug gle is the possession of tho mouths ot tho river Uruguay. Jho ura.dians, alter severe lighting with the Urugua yans, are said to. havo captured tho tow ii ol laysanda on tho M ol Janu ary, Tho President of Pat agiiay, in tho meantime has ordered troops to march into the Western Provinces of Briwi I, tlio conquest which of wilt bo comparatively easy, as they bor der, upon Paraguay, and their commu nication with llio by water can be easily cut off, while communication by land 1 extremely dittlcult on .account rEs"M2i p 3UJi?:flrfc LLTTER FllOAl i llli PRESIDENT. - :,- -s Executive Mansion j,.

To illustrate, a Burmti) case is stated, as follows: ' Vermont and New Hampshire must between them,' furnish o',0lH) men on the ponding call, and, being equals, each must furnish as many as the oih- in the long run. But the Govern ... ... .j .i . r II.. v.... mcnt finds t hai, on former calls, V cr mont furnished a surplus of 500 and New Hampshire a surplus of 1,500 these two surpluses, making 2,000, are added to tho 0,000, making 8,000 to be furnished by tho two States, or 4, 000 each, less by lair credits. Then subtract Yerinont'ssurplus of 500 from her 4,000. leaves ;1:500 as bcr quota on the pending call ; and likewise sub tract New Hampshire's surplus of 1,- 500 fi om her 4.000, leaves 2.0m as her quota on tho pending call. Ihcso 3,1)00 and 2,500 malto precisely ino o,- 000 which tho supposed case requires from the two Slates; and it is just, equal, for Vermont to furnish 1,000 rime than New Hampshire, because New llampshiro bits hcremore turnisneo a 1,000 moro than Vermont, which equalises tho burthens of tho two in the long run. And this result, so iar from being bad faith to Vermont is indispensablo to keeping good faith with New llampshiro. , By no other result can tho 0,000 men bo obtained from tho two States, and, at the sumo time, deal justly and keep faith with both; . and we do but confuse ourselves in questioning the process by which the right result was reached. The supposed case is perfect, as an illustration. The pending call is not for ;)00,000 men subject to fair credits, but is for :500,000 remaining -after all fair credits havo been deducted, and it is impossible to concede what Ver mont asks without coining out short of the 1500,000 men, or making other localities pay for tho partiality shown her.

A n ii a u am Lincoln," have respectfully to report as follows Tho call for iiOO.OOO men, made by tho President, on the lDlh ot Decern Imp 1 Si; t. l-eouircs that that number i " 1 shall bo raised. Hut the law requires that tho num her of men previously turnisbed by lill'erent localities, and the periods ol their service, shall bo considered so as to enualizu the draft. The number of men liable to nulita ry duty is to bo determined by tho en I'll llU'llt lists. The number of mon which bad been furnished by tho various localities, and their periods of service, wero ascertain ed mid nnivioiis accounts having been .wlliixtml ilwi eeessis. where they ex isted, were carried forward uuder the last draft. , The amount of service is determined by multiplying the number of men raised by tho number ol years for which they enlisted. Having thus ascertained tho num ber of men enrolled on the 31st day of December, 1801; tle number of men furnished up to that date; tho locali ties from which they came, and tho periods of their service, it is proposed to distribute the call for 300,000 men tho several districts, and parts ni'ilisti-ieis. aecordiiiir to the number enrolled in cach, and tho number of men furnished, and the periods of ser vice previously rendered by each. The rule by which this is accom plished is as follows; Tuko the whole number of years of service fur iiHhed hy tlio Districts ol II...

Then as tho number of nion enrollod from tho wholo Uni ted States, up to tho 31st of December, 18Ui,'istO tlio peiiod of service, as above ascertained, so is tho number of j men enrolled in a given district, to the number of years ol servico it is requir ed to furnish, including its pro rata share of the excess. From this sum deduct the actual ex cess the district furnished ; the remain der is the number of years of servico which tho district is required to fur nish under, tho call of December l'Jth, 1801, which, dividod by three, gives tho number of men required from the district. As tho call is for 300,000 men, that number cannot bo reduced by men going in for a period longer than ono year. Inequalities produced by men going in under this call for longor pe riods than one year, must bo equalized on future calls. ,' It will bo perceived that though the a?''re!rate of the excess famished, is .c-o v . '.' ' u added to tho wholo call, the excess of each district is afterwards substracted from its quota. Thus tho number of men called for, is neither increased nor diminished, but equality produced, considering tho number of men, and the periods of their service Locali ties which havo heretofore furnished a greater amount of servico havo in pro portion to their enrollment, a less amount to furnish under this, and. c con verso. Men having heretofore enlisted for one, two, and threo years, it was no cessary to tako ono of thoso periods as tho basis of calculation. As threo years embraeod both tlio other periods, it makes tho calculation more simplo to adopt that. Tho same result would bo arrived at by adopting cither dno or two years as tho basis, but tho pro cess of calculation would bo moro com plicated. ' . Such wo find to bo tho rulo adopted by the Provost Marshal General. Tho rule is in conformity with the require ments of the law of Congress, and is just and equitable. . Vi o have carefully oxajnincd and proved the work (tone under tins rule by the Provost Marshal General, and find that it has been dono with fair ness.

How" docs the Gov ernment raise tho money to pay tho interest, and is it safe and sure '! ' Answer. 'Tho Government collects, by taxes, internal revenue, and duties on imports, tully tnreo hundrcl mil lion8 cach YClir Tllis js nea..Iy turoe times as much as is needed to pay tho i nte: est on all tho debt, and as soon as tho-war is ended, the amount not need ed to pay tho interest will bo used in paying off tho debt. Our Government has twice pii(i off all its debt, and can easily do so again. Tho interest is sure to bo paid promptly, and tho debt itself is the very safest investment in tho world. It is as safe as a mortgage on a good farm, and pays-a bettor inter est. Jt is in fact, a First Mortgage on all lands, all incomes, all railroad and canal bonds, and bank or other stocks, mortgages, &c. ' ; Nothing can bo safer, for wo aro all bound for it, and all that wo havo is firmly held for tho payment of princi pal and intorcst.-- How foolish thoso people aro, who keep their' gold and greenbacks idle and hicked up, or pur chase mortgages or railroad stocks and bonds, which "pay only 5 or 6 per cent interest, when theso Seven-Thirties pay (counting the premium on Five Twenties,) over ton per cent., and aro so much safer ana surer. . 0th ' Question. How many Scvon Thirtics are there, and bow much re mains unsold? ' ' Answer. There aro only about threo hundred and twonty-fivo nlWions au thorized by law, and only about ono hundred and ninety millions remain unsold. 10th Question. How long will it take you to soil tho balance? Answer. Thero aro about bin) JNa- tional Hanks all encaged in selling them ; also a largo number of tho old banks, and at least three thousand pri- vato bankers and brokers, and special agents will bo engaged in all parts of the country in disposing of them to tho people. 11A Question. How long will it take to sell the whole? Answer.
