FfUttr CHiu-nt We have assembled to repeat the public ceramouial, begun uv Wash iogton, observed by all my predeces sors, and now a time-honored custom J woicn marits me commencement of a Inewtermof the Presidential office. Called to the duties of this great trust, I proceed, in compliance with usage, to announce some -of the leading principles on the subjects that now chiefly tngage the public attention, by which it is my desire to be guided in the discbarge of those duties. I (hall not undertake to lay down ir revocably principles or ineaiores of (jmiQirtraiioD, but rather to ppeak of . u:t .i,j the ruourps which eboa'd aotmate us ttiid to suggest certain iroporiaut ends xo oe aiiaioeQ in accoroasje with oar iostitotioDs and easentinl to the wel fare of our coo ntry. " " ' At the ou'set of the dicafflioos which preceded tier econt Presiden tial elections, it seemed to me fitting that I should fully make known mj eciimeots in regard to several of the impurtaot questions which then ap peared to demand the consideration cf the country. Following the ex ample, and in part adopting the lan guage of one of my predecessors, I with now, when every rrotive tor misrepresentation has passed, away, to repeat what was said before the election, trusting that my countrymen will candidly weigh and understand it, and that ther will fell assured that the sentiaieaw declared in accepting the ominaion for the Presidency w;jj tje standard of OT Conduct in lue iiaiu ueicre uje, cui pu, s i now am, with the grave and dificult task of carrying them out in the practical administration of the Government so far as depends, under the Constitution and laws, on the Chief Executive of the obtioa. ?AClHCATIOX CF THE COl XTRT. The permanent pacification of the country upon aocb principles and by such measures as will secure tbe complete protection of all iu citiaens in tbe free enjoyment of all their con-' stitotioDal rights, is now tbe one sub ject in our public affairs which all thoughtful and patriotic citizens re- gard as of supreme importance. Many of tbe calamitous effects of the tre mendous revolution which has pass ed over tie southern btatea still re main. The ianme aeurable benefits which will surely follow, sooner or lat er, tbe hearty and generous acceptance of the legitimate results v. that revolu tion havaaot yet bees realtred. 3i-fS cult and embarraisBing questions meet us at tbe threshold of this subject Tbe people of those States are still impoverished, and tbe inestimable blessing cf wise, bonest and peaceful local seif-covernment is not fully en joyed. Whatever difference ot opin ion may exist as to tbe cause of this condition ot things, tbe fact ia clear that in tbe progress of events, tbe time baa come when government is the imperative necessity required by all tbe varied interests, public and private, of those States. lat it must out be forgotten that only a local government which recognizes and maintains inviolate the rights of all is a true sell" go vers men t. With re epect to the two distinct races whose peculiar relations to each, other have brought upon us tbe deplorable compli cations and perplexities which exist in thoe States, it must be a govern ment which guards the interests of both races carefully and equally. It muet be a government which sub mits loyally and heart ly to the Con stitution and the laws, the laws of tbe nation and the laws of the States :henirflvee accepting aod obeying taittfjiiv the whole Constitution as It 13. Resting upon this sure and sub stantial foundation, the superstruc ture of beneficent local governments eaa be built up and not otherwise. In furtherance of such obedience to the letter and the spirit of the Constitu tion, and in behalf cf all that its at tainment implies, all so called party interests lose their apparent import ance, and party lines may well be per mitted t) fade into insignificance. The question we lave to consider for the immediate welfare of those States of the Union is the question of govern ment or no government, of social or der and all tbe peaciul industries and ibe happiness that belongs to it, or a return to barbariem. It is a quenioo in which every citizen of. tbe nation is deeply interested, and with respect, to which we ought not to be, in a ( artisan sense, either Republicans or j Democrats, but fellow citizens, and feifow mea, to whom the interests of a common country and common bumani'y are dear. Tbe sweeping revuloiios of the entire labor system of a large portion of our eoontrv, and the advance of four millions of people from a condition of servitude to that of citizenstrp, upon an equal footing with their former masters, could not occur without presenting problems of the eravest moment, to be dealt with by tbe ema-cipa:ed race, by their j former masters, ana or tne tieoerat j Government, tbe author of tbe act et emancipation. "That it was a wise. ju.-t aod providential act, iraognt wita good for all concerned, is now j e-eerallv conceded throuzhoat the; country. Teat a moral obligation rests upon .ne .auonai uomnmtBii Government to emoloy its constitutional power I role noninterference ia the af and influence to establish tbe rights i fairs of foreign nations has proved of of the people it has emancipated, and great valoe in past times and ought to protect taem in the enjoyment of j be strictly observed.

In the 'effort I shall make to accomplish this PA., WEDNESDAY, welfare of the errantry, trusting that party ties and the prejudice of races will be freely surrendered ia behalf of the great purpose to be accomplished. In the importact work of restoring the South, it is notfhe political situation alone that mints attention. The material development of that section of the country has been arrested by the social and 'political : revolution through which h has passed, and now needs and deserves the consid erate care of thy 1 National Govern ment within taaijust limits prescribed by the Coaptation and wiee public economy. BntM tie basis of all prosperity, for that as well as for every other part of the country, lies the improvement -of the intellectual and moral conduioo . of the people. Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end liberal and pet j 13 -at provision should be made tor iu upport of free schools by the State governments, and if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority. Let me assure my countermen of the South- em States that if is my earnest desire to regard and fro mote their truest interests, the interests of the white and of the color ad people both, aod equally, and to pat forth my best ef forts ia behalf of a. civil policy wbicn will forever wipcout in our political affairs tbe color 4ine and the distinc tion between Notts and South, to tbe end that we may have not merely a united North, or a united South, but a united country CI Via. SERVICE. I ask attention- of the public to the paramount necessity of reform in our civil service a rtrform not merely as to certain abusea-and practices of so called otticial pa Ro a age wbich have come to have the sanction of nsare in tbe several dslpartments of our Government, bntfa change in tbe sys tem of appoinimeot itself, a reform that shall be thorauErb, radical and complete; amort to the principles and practices of tM founders ot tbe Government. - Twsy neither expect ed nor desired team public officers auy partisan service. Tbey meant that pablie officers shonld owe their wide service to tbe Government fad to the people They meant that abe officer sbeuld be secure in bis tafaore as loo as his personal character remained nntar nUbedaod tbe partormance of bis duties satisfactory r They held the appointments to See were not to be made nor expected .merely as re wards of panisaoraervioes, nor mere ly on tbe nomination of. members of Congress, as being entitled io any re spect to control sscb appointments. The fact that bota tbe great political parties of theaooatrj- in declaring tnerr principal prior to tbe election gave prominent place to the - subject of reform of oor civil wervice, recog nizing anasirootriy urging its . neces sity in terms almost identical in their specific import with those I have here employed, must be accepted as a conclusive argume-it in behalf of these measures. It most be regar ded as tbe expression of the united voicv od will of the whole country upon this fccbject, and both political parties are pledged to trire it their uareserred support. ; Tbe President of tbe Uuited States of necessity owes bis election to office to the suf frage aod zealous labor of a politi cal party, tbe members of wbich cber- isn witt ardor and regard as ot es sential importance the principles nf their party organization, but we should strive to be alwavs mindful of the fact that he serves bis party best who serves tbe country best. In furtherance of tbe reform we seek, ana in otner important respects, a change of great importance. I rec ommend an amendment to the Con stitution prescribing a term of six years for the Presidential office and forbidding a re-election. FIXAXCTAL C05PITT0 ftp THE COCNT- 2T. With respect to the financial condi tion of tbe coo ntry, I shall not at tempt an extended history of tbe em barrassment and prostration which we have suffered during the past three years. Tbe depression in all our va ried commercial aod manufacturing interests throughout tbe country, wbich began in September, 1313, still continues. It i very jrratifvinir. however, to be able to say that there are indications all around ns of a coming change to prosperous times. L'pon the currency question, inti mately connected as it is with this topic, I may be permitted to repeat here the statement made in my letter of acceptance, that in mr judicment tbe feelings c f uncertainty insepara ble from aa irredeemable paper cur rency, with iu fluctuations of values, is one of tbe greatest oostacles to a return to prosperous times. The only safe paper currency is one which rests open a coin basis aod is at all times promptly convertible into win. I adhere to the views heretofore ex pressed by me in favor of Congres sional legislarion in behalf of an early resumption cf specie payments,- and 1 am satisnea not only tbat tbis is wise, but that tbe interests, as well as the public sentiment of the country. imperatively demand it EILATIOX WITH OTHER LAM) -4.

THE UTI VOtlTICAL tOTTEST. Fellow citizens, we have reached the close of a political contest marked by the excitement which usually at tends the contests between great po litical parties, whose nnmbers es pouse and advocate with earnest lakh their respective creeds. The circumstances were perhaps in no re spect extraordinary, save in the close ness and tbe consequent uncertainty of tbe result. For the first time in tbe history of the country it has be-n deemed best in view of tbe present circumstances of the care that ob jections and questions in dispute in reference to counting tbe Electoral vote should be referred to the decis ion of a tribunal appointed for this purpose. That tribunal, established by law for this sole purpose, its mem bers, all of them, men of long estab liehed reputation for integrity and intelligence, and with the exception of those who are also members of tbe Supreme Judicary, chosen equal ly from both political parties, iu de liberations enlightened by tbe research and the arguments of able counsel, was entitled to tbe fullest conSdence of the American people. Its deci sions have been patiently waited for j and accepted as legally conclusive by the general judgment of tbe public. For tbe present, opinion will widely vary as to tbe wisdom of the several conclusions announced by that tribu nal. This is to be anticipated in every instance when matters of dis pute are made subjects of arbitration ut.der the forms of law. Haman judgment is never unerring, and is rarely regarded as otherwise than wrong by the unsuccessful party in the contest Tbe fact that two great political parties have in tbis way set tled a dispute in regard to which good men differ as to the tacts and the law, no less than as to the proper course to be pursued in solving the question in controversy, and is an occasion for genera! rejoicing. Upon one point there is entire unanimity in public sentiment, that conflicting claims to the Presidency must be amicably and peacebly adjusted, and that when so adjusted the general acqniescence of tbe nation ought sorely to follow. It has been reserved for a govern ment of tbe people where the right of suffrage is nnirersal to give to the world the first example in history of a great nation in tbe midst of a strug gle of opposing : parties . for power, hushing iu party tumults to yield tbe issue of tbe contest to adjustment ac cording to the forms of law. Look ing for tbe guidance of that Divine band by which the destinies of na tions and individuals are shaped, I cail upon you, Senators, Representa tives, Judges, fellow-citizens' here and everywhere, to nnite with me in aa earnest effort to secure to our coun try tbe blessings not only of material prosperity, but of justice, peace and onion, a union depending not upon the constraint of force, but upon tbe loving devotion of a free people, aod that all things may be so ordered and settled npon the best and surest foun dation that peace and happiness, truth and justice, religion and piety may be esublished among ls for all generations.

New York, Mar. 18, A SEXSIBLE WOMAN. It is not often that a woman, rich and charitable, is not also weak. Not so was Miss Mary Dancer, a rich maiden lady of this city, who died a few weeks ago. Miss Mary was well endowed with this world's goods, aod she had lots of relatives who loved her with all tbe devotion that poor people always love rich relations till the will is read. Miss Mary considered their feelings. ' She divided up a portion of her p-operty among tbem in such a way as to make them all comfortable, so that they would not feel aggrieved, and go to disnutinir the will, lf a relative ba& left yon thirty thousand dollars, you are not going to go around and swear she was insane because she left the same amount to a charity. After doing tbis she made a clean, clear will, leaving the rest of her estate to ten of the best charities in tbe city. She distributed $33.!,000 among tbe charities that are known to be well managed, and fixed it so that tbe money goes to them without at,y in terference of lawyers or courts. Tbe curious thing about it is, that her father who made all this money was a noted gambler, aod every dol lar of it was made by gambling. Tbe gambler's wife and daughter were, however, not only exemplary, but devotedly pious women, aod it was tbe wish of the mother, as well as of the father, that tbe money should be applied to a good use. Tbe managers of tbe charities bad, at the beginning, some scruples as to ac cepting mosey so acquired, but it was finally decided that tbey could sanctify it. After taking Daniel Drew's, I don't see why they thouM hesitate about Dancer's. A great many people will, for a great tcany years hence, riee up and call ber blessed. Tbe lawyers who lore fat estates are gnashing their tfeth be cause she gave them no excuse for getting their long fingers in ber pie An acute as well as good woman was Miss Mary Dancer. II0;iIS.VESS GETTISO ITS REWARD. Vanderbilt, before he died, wanted to get bold of tbe Western Union Telegraph Company, that he might bleed that monopoly as he has every other one he got his claws on. He did get enough of it to control it, and his estate is reaping iu reward. Scott, Hewitt and Garrett, tha other railroad magnates, turned about and put a million of dollars into the At lantic and Pacific, and turned over their especial lines to that company, and are pushing new lines in every direction. Consequently, Western Union, wbich was an eight per cent stock, notwithstanding it has been1 watered a dozen times, goes down to sixty, and tbe Atlantic and Pacific goes op proportionately. Telegraph ing is tbe most outrageous swindle in this century. Tbe Western L'nion is, cr has been, a monopoly, and the people have been compelled to pay whatever it should exact Conse quently the cost of telegraphing has been four times what it is ic any other country. Now that the new company has been bolstered, down will go the prices. It is a good thing to throw patronage to weak compa nies, to sustain them. Tbey are tbe only safeguards we hare against im position. Tbe prices have already been, reduced a half, at competing points, and they will go lower still. Would that there could be found some relief from tbe express swin dle. THE ORASD KTKE. I When the Grand Duke Alexis was here a few years ago. New York went wild over him. He was feted and danced and balled and ridden , and photographed and belles quar- reled lor tbe privilege of dancing with h'm. He is here again, hot alas! his Royal Highness doesn't excite as much sensation as old Cro nin, the fraud with the nose. He walks about tbe streeu followed by an English bull-dog, the same aa any other man, and the crowd scarce ly turn and look at him. He is a good fellow, and rather likes tbe be ing let alone. New York needs a new prince every time it don't gush over an old one worth a cent It is said that his business is to marry a jcu miu w. uviu 1 -1 sis iviu rr lArju he was here first She is tbe daugh ter of a wealthy mechanic np town, and is beautiful and accomplished. Tbe Grand Duke met her at a big ball given in his honor, and was so smitten that be demanded permission ;,k -v.nn. v.- r..!i i a of bis father to marrv ber. Tbe old j Emperor suggested that possibly it might be well to ascertain whether tbe lady woold marry him some thing that hadn't occurred to Alexis. So, after worrying the imperial fam ily for four years, he got permission to come over and roar his court in person. The girl wiil marry him, never fear. The New York airl who ould marry a penniless fraud if he had a title, will not stop at taking an actual Grand Doke, with revenues eooogh for a dozea German or French Counts. She has already signified her acquiescence, and now comes a aew trouble. Tbe Emperor never supposed that he .meant matri mony he presumed that his boy was struck with a pretty face and figure, and that be wanted ber for a sort ot left-handed wife, such aa all German Princes are allowed. lie was wiliinz to receive the American girl ia the eapacitr of bis soa's mis- erallr a trustworthy aod truthful peo-i and that of his eo-patriota, towering tress, bat as bis wife that was pie, being mostly Christians, having! ia majestic grandeor, far beyond that another thing.

No man who ever made religion a bbsiness does so touch that might be called advertising of himself as tbe eminent sensationalist who sails un der tbe name of T. Do WittTalmage. He bad built for bitn a church that looked more like a theatre than any thiog else, aod be fitted it up solely for effect He is a long, cadaverous man, with a sepulchral voice aod a brimstone manner; and he got up his place of meeting with a vie solely to its fitness for biro lie has the best organist andcornet-plajer in tbe city to lead the congregational singing, and as five thousand voices are upraised tbe effect is wonderful. Talma ire aims censtaatly at sensa tion. Jutk now he is preaching to the different professions, and bis ser mons, as he calls them, are singular mixtures of pathos, cant, and what in any one else's mouth would be blasphemy. Last Sunday he preach ed to the insurance people, and what do you thick of these as sample bricks: "If I did not think that God insti tuted the life insurance organizations, I would not take op your time aod my own on this Sabbath morning in discoursing on the subject Life in surance provide for our families when we are gone.

The Owassoes live chiefly on rabbit3, the skins of which animals are their only cbtbiog; and ia the winter, when the snows are deep and the rabbits scarce, this low tribe would starro if necessity had not Uogbt tbem to have recourse to the desperate plan of disposing of their children in ortltr to t: tb ir provi sions. The writer ot this narrative re garded the statement as fabuloos at first ; for. thooab everr tnHi.m k. eoosulied expressed bis bi;f that the children of the wild trilw were all j buried ia the lakes during the win ter, and bo. ked op again, safely, in the spring, yet none of thoye who so confidently narrated tbe atory certi fied that any one of them had been present when th ope ratio a of seal ing np the children in the "Vokocks,' or their enlargement therefrom, took place But the writer happened to be present at a wedding nf the head chief of the Cbippewas, N'o-ga-oap'g, daughter, Lady Louisa, to one Bo vie, a scion of one of tbe tribes of Gal way, and at this marriage feast, lasting a whole week, were present two trappers from the rabbit-eating Indians aforesaid, who, apon being a-ked if the story a boat the sinking of children into the lake to save tbe food they would consume waa fabu lous, answered, gravely, "Kawin."
