To tlio3e details we refer our reader* for the particulars attending the outside display. When the military and^civil procession had arrived, accord ing to programme, in front of the Lindsley Institute, the temporary capitol of the New State? ami mingled itself with the vast assemblage, _that filled every available space within 9ight or sound of the capa cious platform, Senator C.

Almighty God, who ruleth supreme over the armies of Heaven nnd the inhabitants of the earth.?Who art the King Eternal, immortal and invisible?; wBo raiseth na tions up, aud do.11 cast them dowu again, and maketh them subservient to Thine own good pleasure. We come before Thee at this time, to acknowledge Thy sovereignty over us: to acknowledge Thy power and Thy right to reign and rule within us, and to reign and rule over this nation. In Thy wise and holy dispensation Thou bast sent Thy judgments abroad in this land, and Thou art clothing families iu sack-cloth and in mourning. Thou, Great God, hast done it. But we acknowledge Thee in Thy goodness and in Thy mercy, even in the war that id now devastating the land, and we humbly pray, that, as Thy judgments are abroad iu the earth, we and all the in habitants of this land, may learn righteous ness. We adore Thee that Thou art a prayer hearing and a prayer answering God. We have come before Thee day by day, pleading that Thou wouldat gruat us u boou we ure now, this day, to be put in possession of. While we beseech Thee, at this time lhatThou wilt grant Thy rich bless ings on the President of the Uuited States, and all the members of the Government, Civil nnd Military, upon the whole Govern ment of the United States, we pray that Thon wilt, at the same time, grant espec ial blessing! on the new State now to be added to the constellation o.f our Stars. aa u". a.r, !? Thy good providence. We come together here to arraogo Its Oov.rnmeot, and to Institute all Its civil proceedings that are neoessary, we pray that the God who rules und reigns supreme above will ackooweledge our acts and will bless us in itr administration. And grant, we pray Thee, Almighty God, that this State, born amidst tears and blood, and fire, und des olation, may long be preserved, and Iroin Us little beginning may grow to be a might 'inda power that shall make those who come alter us look upon it with joy and gladness and pride of heart. We prav :hat thon wilt grant this day. to be with those of our friends who are patriots in the held. And it, this day, they are en gaged to battle, anil are in the midst of strile and death, will God Almighty fight tor them and espouse their cause, aud Kiv? them victory. Will God Almighty be pleas, ed to crush this unholy rebellion, speedilv to accomplish this, our purpose, and give to us peace instead of war, and order in stead ot confusion. Pardon our sins! Hear us in our pray ers lor Jesus' sake?: Amen. oov. i-rirpoint's valedictory. Gov. i'eirpoint advanced to the front ol the platform and spoke as follows: Mi/ If I low Citizens:?According to the act of the Congress of the Uoited States and ol the General Assembly of Virginia, \ est Virginia is to-ilay numbered one among the United Stales of America ? - .".1"..cou,P??s one of that glorious constellation of States which makes up our great and glorious nation. By these same acts my official relation with you closed last nightat l2o'clock, and I should do injustice to my feelings, my fellow, citizens, on the present occasion, did I not acknowledge the profound gratefulness of my heart to you and to all the people that are loyal, that compose this State, for the honor and forbearanco that I have received at your bands. i wo years ago, lacking two days, in the dark hour of our section s history, when wo looked in each other s faces aud were ready to ask what would be the next event to threaten the destruction of this na' tionaud or this section of the State, sur rounded by strong arms and brave hearts you conferred upon me the official relation that 1 have occupied to you since that time. My tellow-citizens, i confess that then hung over my heart the darkest pall that ever shrouded it. We were entering upon the fearful experiment, unskilled in the government of state or the nation. Prov identially, or from circumstances, I sun pose, my fellow-citizens acting with me, for toe want of abetter, placed me in that po sition. 1 confess I could not see far ahead, and i saw no person arouod me that could see far ahead. I resolved on this, that from day to day, andjevery day, relying on my Great Master for diviue protection and direction, I would do my duty, fearless of consequences, and leave the resnlt with God. (Applause.) My fellow citizens, it . is not for me to say what that action has been. A part of it is the history of the past. Step by step we have progressed, relying ou the Great Author of our existence lor protection, and seemingly, without unauim lty or counsel. Step by step, as events de veloped themselves, this New State of West Virginia has b;eu brought iuto ex liteoce, severed from the Old State, and to-day itenters upon its career as a separate and distinct State of this Dnioo ' my fellow-citizens, as mv last parting word. I desire not on the present occasion i to brood over the past, I desire to look for. ward to tbe future. CAMPBELL 6c M'DEBMOT, proprietors ako EDITORS.

And my fellow citizens I would to God that I was announcing to you that the rebellion was crushed out and that you could repair to your homes and engage in the peaceful vocations of lite, in developing the resources ol your New Mate, in cultivating the arts of peace, and doing that which will be calculated to raise her to her proper position as a proud young republic among the republics of this nation, lint my fellow-citizens I can not congratulate you that any such pro3 pect lies before you. The same coaspiru-^ tors who inaugurated this rebellion for the purpose of depriviug the workingmau of his rights in this natiou, for the purpose of carrying out the great idea that, the workingman was only on an equality with the slave and ought not to participate in the Government of the whole country, those same cunspirators are to-day with their armies on your southern border, even threatening your neighborhood and peace ful city, overrunning, carrying fire and sword, scourging the citizen and his prop, erty and appropriating it to their unholy use. ou still have to stand forth and bare your breast and face Hie storm in subduing this rebellion for the purpose of perpetuating the institutions of Washing ton. of Jefferson, of Adams, of Hamilton, of Madison and of Marshall, won by the strong arm of your worthy revolutionary sires, transmitted to you as a legacy?the legacy of freedom?the freest people?the happiest people on the face of God Al mighty's earth. Sow my fellow-citizens, the question arises before every one of you, are we to bow like laggard cowards before these men who have drawn the sword to deprive iih of our rights, or are we going to rally round that old time honored Hag?(ap plause) these stars and stripes, and swear upon the altar of our fathers' graves that we will defend the stars and the stripes and the institutions of our revolu tiouary fathers as long as we have breath? I"6 ae" ?f We9t Vire',nitt ! ^ke from us that flag, which represents our rights and the rights of the American citizen through out the nation, tear it down, substitute ihe bars and stripes which repreient sla very as tha foundation of their govern ment?that deprivation of the laboring man of his rights, and what has the world left worthy a freeman's ambition. [Cheers.] My fellow citizens ! I should like to con tinue this strain of remark?but I do not want to weary you Time admonishes me that I have perhaps detained you too long already (cries of no ! no! go on ! go on!) > uu must pardon rue, my birth place the birth place of my father and mother are all here in West Virginia. All my rights and all my interests and all my associa tions and all that I have are here with you. God, in his Providence, has called me to auothei field of actiou I g., to Virginia, lor the purpose ol doing what I cttn do there to suppress this rebellion?to restore liw and order?to secure tne rigtus of freemen iu that saored soil. Relying upon His mercy?uparn His kindness?I shall do all that 1 cau whether that be much or whether it be little, to encourage my fel low citizens, and suppress this unholv re bellion. I leave with you. my friends, all my relatives, all my property, much or little, for your care and protection. If all these are destroyed in the conflict, they are gone, and let them go, so only tint the country is saved. My only exhortation to you is, lose not your sacrci liberties.'- f Ap plause.] Fight as long as a mouutair. pre sents a site for a battery?or a grotto re mains to acrvo as a rifle pit. Never aban don that flag (pointing to the splendid banner that overhung the street.) Never yield the right of a freeman.

Tlie East and the West have always been two peoples. There has been little intercourse between tbeui, either social or commercial. Our people seldom visit tbe Earn Tor pleasure. Tbe farmers do not take their stock, grain, wool and other agricultural products there to sell; the merchants do not go there to sell or buy; the manufacturers have no market there; indeed, we have had nothing to do with the Eastern people, except that our Senators and Delegates have gone to Richmond to sit in the Legislature, and our Sheriffs have gone there to pay in tbe revenue as an annual trib ute from this sectioo of the State for the inequality and unfairness with which we have always been' treated by them. Our markets, our trade and our travel are North and West of Virgiuia, through natural channels, or those constructed through the enterprise of our own people, or such weans as they could procure. The moun tains intervene between us, the rivers rise in tlie mountains and run towards the North west; and, as it to make tbe separation more complete, Eastern Virginia adopted the fatal doctrine of secession, while the ? est spurned and rejected it as false and dangerous in the extreme. Thus nature, chip commoroa, travol, habits, nasuctauoua) and interests, all?all say that West Vir ginia should be severed from the East. And now, to.day after many long and wea ry years of Insult and injustice, calminat ing on the part of the E ist, in an attempt to destroy the Government, we have tbe proud satisfaction of proclaiming to those around ua that we are a seperate Stale in the Uuion. Our State is the child of the rebellion; yet our peace, prosperity and happiness, and, not only ours, but that of tbe whole couutry, depends oo the speedy suppress ion of this attempt to overthrow the Gov ernment of our lathers; and it is my duty, as soon as these ceremonies are closed, to proceed at once to aid the Federal author ities in their eflforts to stay its destructive hand. ?I do not intend to insult your loy alty or intelligence by discussing before you to-day the dogma of secession. Its bitter fruits are to be seen all around us. It is like the poisonous Upas tree that blight3 and withers every thing that comes within its inHuence. We have seen and telt enough of it to know that It is fraught with evil, and that con tinually. The politicians of many of the Southern States, baviug an inurdiuato de sire for place und power, ><nd it becoming apparent that the great North West was ""proving and increasing in population so rapidly that the controlling influence of the Government was soon surely to be with the free States, and that the South must sur render power which they had so long ex erted to a majority of the people according o the principles ol our Government, thev became desperate, and determined if they could no longer control, they would destroy the Government.? By fraud nu,j falsehood, and by incendiary speeches, they influenced the public mind in the South and induced them to believe tbat they were suffering great injury from the General Govern,neni; that the rights of tba South ""L"rl ?ulf disregarded, but trampled under foot; that Mr. Lincoln was a section - ? 1 resident, and that bis election wus the crowning act of insult and injustice; that Stttution, they lusidiously taught the Faithless doctrine that peauable secession was in consonance with the Constitution, and absolved ihem from all their obliga lions to support the Government All this uud much more of a like character thev taught until they succeeded in prevailing on the authorities in many of the States to embrace their doctrine and attempt to car ry it into executiou, and thus tbeyinaugu jated a war of rebellion, and have prosecu ted it for over two years with a zeal and w?rthy of a better remise. It has assumed fearful proportions, aud it de mauds all the energies of the Government authorities aud of the loyal people to de lea! its ruinous purposes. Uuderthese circumstances what course Should the loyal people of West Virginia pursue? I|ut before, atate J we meTfiat t?'i StH,e "ml il *eeras to me that the positiou of our people in the beg,Qning?f the troubles, and their con union since, have uot been understood by out friends arounds us In the commence aSouth esc difficulties we were part of a Southern State, whose convention pars ed an ordinance of secession, and this fact inclined many to sympathize with the South without reflecting whether it was ngbt or wrong. We were situated be ween the South and the North, and in case of a collision it must necessarily result if wR?Ur?|WOU>m bC cohtca,ed territory; tbat if we adhered to the Union the South would deal with us much more severely than if we were a part of a Northern Statf ^ uODe 1 not attempted to secede and that we would be. what we have since . ?? tr"thfullJ' called by many ?he great ''breakwater" between the North and those in rebellion in the South.

We want no compro mise : we want no peace, except upon the terms that those in rebellion will lay down their arms and submit to the regularly constituted authorities of the Government of the United States. Then, and not till then, will the people of West Virginia aigree i to peace. We have done mucb and sut fered much'already, but we will do more, and suffer on for years, if need be, rft,."er than consent to a dissolution of the Union, which would be nothing less than a sur render of the last hope of human liberty on the face of the earth. . Fellow-citizens, I now come to what is more particularly the purpose of this ad dress; ?nd that is. to state to you those rules of action by which I shall be governed during my term of office: I shall co-operate with the Federal au thorities in all those measures deemed necessary for the suppression of the re bellion. While the war continues 1 must uecessurily be engaged.in attending to mili tary matters, and to the defence of the State, and it may not, therefore, be ex pected that I shall give mucb time at pres ent to the internal civil policy of the State; but even amidst surrouuding difficulties and daugers they shall' not be entirely for ? gotten. I shall do wbate*e?*n??y b? in my pow er during my term or office-wnarMM itio agricultural, mining, manufacturing and commercial interests of the State. And it shall be my especial pride and pleasure to assist in the establishment of a system of education throughout the State that may give to every child among us, wheth er rich or poor, an education that may lit them for vespectable positions in society. And to you gentlemen of the Senate and House of Delegates, T shall look for aid and assistance and for the exercise of a liberal policy in these times of trial; and I feel as sured from your known intelligence and pa triotism, that I shall receive your cordial co-operation and support in the discharge of the duties of my office. Fellow-Cilizeus, we are about to part with him, who has for two years exercised the office of Governor of Virginia in our midst. And I here express how highly are appreciated, not only by myself, but by the whole loyal population ot the State, his purity and ilddlity, and the ability with whiob he has discharged the arduous and responsible duties of bis office. We regret that he is to leave us, but we have the satisfaction of knowing that he is go ing to a new and important field where his ability and patriotism are still to be devo ted to the good of his country. II l shall only be able to discharge the duiies of ray office with as much satisfac tion to the people and honor to mysett as my predecessor, 1 shall expect tlie apruba tion of a geuerous public. I 6hall, no doubt, often do wrong, this is the lot of man; and while I shall always do that which honesty of purpose and my opiuiou of the. good of the country dictates, I shall expect you to exercize that indulgence which is due to a public officer under the surrounding circumstances. After the conclusion of Gov. Borcman's inaugural, calls were made for Ex-Senator Willey, who sat in a conspicuous position near the front, in response to which he wasted forward-l?y? Gov. Peirpoint, who introduced him sujiug: Felloio Citheni:?With pleasure I pre sent you, uot th#rWille? *tw?"^?neiit, "but Mr. Willey * SKMATOR Wttt.Bv's RPRKCH. Mr. Willey said, b'elloir Citizen*:?1 did not see it on the programme at all, that I was to address you. And I certainly appreciate the fact that you have been upon your feet a loug time and must be wearied, and I shall re spect that fact. Nevertheless, since you have not only tlite Willey amendment, but Willey also before you, I will undertake to make a suggestion or two?not in the regular line of succession, fir I am a kind of outsider, and you being ull outsiders, it will be all in place, I reokon, [laughter.] Holding no ofliee in the world?being free and independent?I shall expect to express myself just as 1 think proper on the pres ent occasion. [fjangbter.] Now, Fellow Oiti/.ens, what we have longed for and la bored for and prayed for. is a fixed fact. IKnf Virginia ia a Jixtd fact! She is one ot the Union of these States. [Good, some bodyr said.] I don't know whether the State has been placed on the new banner or not, (A voice?Yes,) but wheu it shall have been placed there, I feel in my heart to appeal to my fellow-citizens, anil espe cially you who carry arms, to swear be neath the brotd heavens to day and be neath the old flag, that it shall never be struck therefrom. [Tumultuons cheering.] lu mingling with the people?in circula ting abroad?I have sometimes momenta rily caught the fata) feeling of desponden cy?bjtt it was onlySor n moment. And 1 have been pained, at times, that others were under like iutluences But, fellow citizens, where is the cause for despon cy this day? It was said when we com menced this enterprise in regard to the New State, "Yon will never succeed."? Unt we did succeed, and we are in a new State to-day. Some, perhaps thorough Union men, looking at the dark clouds that lower overour political horizon, think sometimes that it is doubtful if we succeed in restoring peace and unity. But we shall succeed. My heart was touched when those beautiful little girls (poiuting to the 35 little Misses representing the dif ferent States of the Union) sang our na tional hymn: Triumph we tuuit, For ourcanse it I? jnnt; And this be oor motto:? In Ood is onr trust." [Cheers.] Fellow-Citizens:?If God is for us, as I believe He is, the artifices, the power and schemes of oor adversaries shall be brought to nought. But, as in the fate of the hu man race, who all come into existence through pain and travail, so hjstory shows that states and new political organizations, from the time of the organization of socie ty until now, come into existence through convulsions?through revolutions-through blood and through fire. The history of our own existence as a nation verifies this fact. We may expeot it. And, fellow-cit izens, we look over our barren fields?we look abroad on thelparcbed pastures, and upon the withering verdure now?but the clouds are gathering behind us. God, in his good providence, is enllecting, in his store-house, the rich treasures of rain which, ere long, shall be ahed abroad over oor fields, and that which looks like deso lation now will bloom and grow green again; and when the thunders cease and the showers are over, we aball have fruits and a rich harvest, and our hearts shall re joice again. Many times, fellow-citizens, when oppressed with the atmosphere, the thunder-clouds come to relieve us; the voice of God speaks in the tempest; the tempest prostrates our buildings, and spreads desolation io Us track, but it leaves a purified atmosphere behind.. So, when this political shower shall have passed ???', ? bright and glorious politi cal sky shall shine out apain over us, nnd on the blue field of our country's banner we will see the little star of West Virginia beaming out to glad onr heart3 and B"l?e our destinies . forever. (Cheers.) why should we despond? Is not our cause ju?1' Are we not a people who appreciate the truth? Are we not fighting in the cause of freedom and human liberty? Fellow-citt zens, where have we any cause for despond ency? Who are our adversaries? With a bad cause, with a country already partial ly depopulated, with their resources about gone, who are they that we have to con tend with? Si* millions of men?brave men I know they are, because they are bone of our bone and flesh ol our flesh? but they are misguided by malicious men. And in addition to the fact thut their cause is unjust?that the truth is on our side, look at our resources. Why should we despond? Six millions against us, partial, ly overcome, already giving evidence of their desperation. What have we to offer to them? Twenty odd millions?with re sources twenty odd times greater than the South. Are we not as brave men as they? As intelligent as they? Have we not a hundred fold their resources? Why should we despond? With a righteous cause ten men to one?with tenfold resources? with God for us and our own strong arms to aid us, what is the reason we should have even a moment's temporary despond ency? There is no cause for it. We shall triumph at last. Fellow-citizens I will not detain you any longer?(voice?go on?all day if you want to.) Well my-ilear friends I could not talk to you all day. Iam uearlybro k*.u Jowo. 1 Uave been skedadling lately. [Laughter.] I hope you will give to your retiring Governor?f know you have given ?your parting respects. [ know you will follow him with your prayers and sympa thies. It is not^i new field to which he goes. It is u part of the same old field be has been cultivating. It was too big and it has been divided, and it is just having two Western Virginia Governors instead of one?one in the East and one in the ?Vest. V'our new Governor, give him the aid of your honest hearts?your warm sympathies. Stand by him, support and encourage him. Fellow-citizens, I have been in the habit of talking sometimes against our armies and generals in the field and against our national administration. I quit it about two weeks ago (laughter) and I don't in tend to renew it until the war is over. [Applause.] Our Union is at stake, our liberties are imperilled. The national fab ric is on fire, and craven is he who ot this hour instead of rushing to the rescue stops to quarrel about whether they are pouring the water oo right or wrong. Let lis put tbe fire out no matter who does it or how. We must sustain the administration. Wo cannot get along if we are to quarrel amongst ourselves. Let these difficulties be settled after the war is over. Now is the time to help. Fellow-citizens I thank you for your lUtteriog attention. I say God bless you: God bless our old Governor: God bless our new Governor, and especially God bless the State of West Virginia. [Cheers ] Gov. Peirpoint coming forward said : Fellow Citizens;?I think it is fitting on the present occasion that I should propose to you to give three chcers for West Vir ginia. Three cheers were given with a will. Gov. Poirpoint (resuming): Now I pro pose three cheers for tbe United States of America. These three were given with the most vociferous enthusiasm. The singing ot' "Ji Pluribus ITnum" by the little misses and the playing of the Star Spu^s1*"* u-nocr Oy the band, con cluded the ccrcmonies of the inauguration of West Virginia into the Union as a new, free and independent State.
