, PRESIDENT- UAYIvS.
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
?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
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
rests upon .ne .auonai uomnmtBii

' prosperity of tieir citizens. In the
'effort I shall make to accomplish this
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-
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.

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

The Ameer is represented, when at
his capital, as in tbe habit of toing
about incognito, after the manner of
Uaroon-al-Raehed, and he has sever
al,tirnes been taken npas a vagabond
by bis own Police. Oa such occa
sions be tests tie probity of his cap
tors by offering a bribe for his release,
those who accept it are seized aod
brought before him on the following
day, and the lightest punishment
they are made to undergo is a severe
whipping, while those that have
withstood the tempution are promo
ted The Ameer, in conformity with
Oriental usage, aiu daily at the gate
of bis capital receiving petitions, hear
ing complaints, and administering
justice. The first object that meets
the eye of a traveler on entering the
City of Kasbgar is the gallows, and
that instrument of punishment has
not been in such activity in Central
Asia for centuries. In no part of
the world is life more safe or property
more secure. All serious crimes are
r-unisbed with death, and even petty
theft with loss of hands; and woe be
tide the dishonest shopkeeper; tor
any tradesman convicted of using
false weights has the scales tied
round his neck, his shoulders bared,
and he is conducted through tbe
streets of the city by the Police, who
mercilessly scourge him with leather
thongs. It Ls greatly to tbe credit of
this Asiatic ruler that he has sup
pressed the slave trade throughout
tbe whole of his dominions. AVw

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

getting their long fingers in ber pie

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

When the Grand Duke Alexis was

went wild over him. He was feted

excite as much sensation as old Cro
nin, the fraud with the nose. He
walks about tbe streeu followed by

good fellow, and rather likes tbe be

tbe lady woold marry him some
thing that hadn't occurred to Alexis.
So, after worrying the imperial fam

to come over and roar his court in

never fear. The New York airl who
ould marry a penniless fraud if he
