Report the Inauguration of Jeff. Davis. Richmond, Feb. 22. The inauguration of President Davis took place to-day, ac cording to announcement. Owing to tbe importance of tbe occasion, Mr. and Mrs. Davis, tbe members of tbe Cabinet, and the Confederate Congress, concluded to wear shoes, (without stockings,) in tbe procession and during tbe ceremonies not wiibing'to mar the dignity of the inaugur ation by appearing barefooted, as is their wont. It may be proper to explain, in this connection, that owing to tbe" extreme scarcity -of boots and shoes, South, all classes there are under tbe necessity of doing without them as much lis possible consequently bare footed people are no un common sight. Even ladies appear on the streets shopping, barefooted. Ed. Plain Dealer! During tho ceremony the Presi dent was visibly affected, and was noticed to wipe bis eyes (and bis nose also) on his shoes frequently. This emotion soon spread itself among the sympathetic au dience. Thoso who had shoes to wipe their eyes on, let 'em run consequently the apartments we're in an exceedingly sloppy condition, and Mrs. Davis who, as we said befoie, bad no stockings on her feet, and whoso shoes leaked badly caught an awful cold. She may get well, howev er probably will. It was at first concluded, on account of tbe loss of Roanoke Island, and Forts Henry and Donelson, not to have any fes tivities on the occasion; but Davis said he wasn't going to be cheated out of bis little fun if Buckner had gone up with fifteen thousand men. Accordingly a big danco cameoffin the evening at the Spotlswood House. The President danced first with Mrs. Mekminqer, wife of tbe Secretary of tbe Treasury. Tbe President was dressed in full Confederate party costume one trowser on tbe right leg, a drawer on the left, a sailor jacket, a pair of spurs, sword, bowie knife and tooth pick completed bis neat and grnceful dress. He substituted spurs for shoes for the sake of economy not feeling as though he could afford to subject bis shoes to the wear and tear of n protracted dance. This pair of shoes must last him until the war is over. Mrs. Mem minger was attired in a Balmoral shirt and fine tooth comb. Her hair was combed back of her ears and lied with a cotton string. The cotton string elicited much applause. Mrs. Memminger is a plucky little woman. Mrs. Davis, owing to the cold she look at the inauguration ceremonies went home to dry her feet. Mr. Stevens, the Vice President and his wife were present. Aleck, got pretty well slewed before the evening was over and made himself quite conspicuous, damning Liucoln and his Northern "Hessians." Ho was dressed in a new pair of cotton drawers (Southern manufacture) -and a palm leaf bat. When not engaged in drinking he was smoking a penny cinnamon cigar, lir. Stephens in the course of the evening waltzed with Mrs. Secretary Memminger. Tho two, owing to their rich and gorgeous costumes made a fine show as they-whirled past in this fascinating and voluptuous dance. The President for tho instant forgot his exalted position, and was heard to yell out frequently : "Go in Aleck !" General Wise came up from Nag's Head in the course of tho evening having near ly recovered from his late fright. Wise says he dou't care a cuss about losing 0. Jennings, his boy; bo only wishes bo bad fifty more to slaughter for tbe good of the heavenly Southern Confederacy. He won't sacrifice himself yet, however, think ing his presence necessary to cheer his countrymen. Wise became pretty tight before tho evening was over. Ho is confi dent that tbe Southern nation is all right yet; and that so soon as tho Northern .Democrats rise to assert the rights of the South, aud the Southern Confederacy is recognized by England and France both of which events he thinks near at band all Will bo "old peaches" with Secesb. Afler tho dancing bad been kept up to a late hour the company adjourned to tbe dining room where a banquet had been spread. After the banquet had been dis cussed, toasts and speeches finished tho festivities consequent upon the the hrst in auguration (and the last one) of a Presi dent in the Southern Uonteaeracy. ino following were the regular toasts presented on the occasion : 1st. The President of the South ern Confederacy. May he live to see every Lincoln vandal, who dares to show himself South of Mason and Dixon's Line, wiped from tho face of the earth like tho veriest grease spot. Music. "We may bo happy yet." All fired doubtful. Ed. Plain Dealer. 2d. Nag's Head. If it .hadn't been for Nag's Head, our beloved Wise would have lost his. Response by Alexander Stephens. Al exander was, however, too far gone from excessive "celebratin" to make the necessa ry response, and it- was passed over for tho 3d. Floyd the Coward. Music. Tbe Rouges March. 4th. The Noble I3ocknkr. Would to God the Lincoln fanatics would hang him liis blood would enrich the Southern Confederacy already highly manured by the blood of other of our brave sons. Music. Monaie Musk. 5th. The Southern Confederacy. Tho only government on the face of the earth established on consistent, wise and well established principles. Music "The Pea Nut Gal." 6tb. Southern Chivalry. Response by the President; but Jeff, had gone home to attend to his wife,-' and thus the second response was passed over. Many other volunteer toasts wero pre sented and read, and the ball was kept up until a late hour. Mr. Benjamin, lae Bee relary of War, was the efficient Floor man- ager ou tuo occasion, ile was n nine tight but performed his duties well con sidering. Tho most notable fenturo of tho celebration outside was tho burning of Floyd and Pillow in effigy along siao of President Lincoln, in front of the Wash ington Monument. Jeff, expects to serve bis six years; and is already "wire-pulling, to ensure his re election. It is whispered here among Unionists, however, that he will be hemp pulling before that time. From Despatches to Philadelphia Inquirer. The Gale at Washington. A violent Northwest wind visited Wash ington and vicinity this morning. Such flags-as wero not speedily drawn in were very soon whipped into ribons, and it was deemed best not to hoist tho flags on the Senate aud House of Representatives upon tho assembling of these bodies. Tho sky lights of tbe C ongressional Library were demolished, and tbe ratling of roofs over the Senate nnd House rendered the trans action of business difficult and caused no little alarm. Several houses were blown down south of the Capital, and n number of roofs torn .off in various parts of tbe city. Trenity Church, on third and C streets was damaged to some extent by tbe up setting of one or two wooded pinnacles on the towers, and tbe throwing down of one of tbe cinnll brown stono blocks from the front, and a porl'on of the roof was also broken. The water in the Potomac was lashed into a perfect foam, the waves dashing fu riously over the Long Budge nnd the wharves. At the wharf of tbo Lunatic Asylum, ngainst which the wind had a lonp; sweep, the water frequently dashed to the bight of thirty feet, completely sub merging the timgers. A schooner, which had anchored off tho Arsenal, dragged six anchors and drifted ashore, and considera ble damago was done to other vessels lying at tbe wharves. The steamers were com pelled to cease runing, and a'f reight train coming up from Alexandria could with difficulty make its fray against tbo gale. About noon it was noticed that tho lofty steeple on the Thirteenth street Baptist C hurch (where tbo Rev. Dr. Sampson lias been officiating) was swaying fearfully. It finally was blown down, and the mas sive bell entirely crushed tbo roof and side walls, leaving the front and east walls standing. The fine organ of tho church is presumed to be uninjured from the appear ance of tbe walls where it stands but of this lh"ere is no certainty, as no one has ven tured among the ruins to see. The steeple was 161 feet high from tbe roof. Tbo damages aro estimated at not less than $12,000. Tbe north wall in its fall crushed tho back building of the fine dwelling on that side, belonging to Mr. S. Masi, nnd occu pied by tho family of Mr. Smart. In the northern part of the city tbo dam ago to property has been considerable. Some of tbe heaviest suffereres were the dealers in small wares along the streets, for they could illy afford to Ioso thoir stock in trade. Oranges, apples, peanuts, ginger schnapps and rickety tables went hob nob bing promiscuously, while their proprietor vainly strove to "come to" beforo the im petuous current of Boreas. Tin signs occupied a conspicuous posi tion in mid air, reminding ono of kiteflying time Toward ono o'clock tho gale abated, and tbe wrecked material began to be collected. In one place lay a buggy on its broadside, in another, a wagon laden with several bales of hay, in a similar position. On top of a trco fluttered a portion of somebody's awning, with the words "Clothing Reno vated and." Everybody present agreed that no further renovating was needed for the present. Across tbe river, in the vicinity of- the camps, the scene was perfectly ludicrous. Tents were carried away bodily, leaving a few bare poles and boards as relics of more quiet times. Tho stoves which many had fixed up so neatly, were tipped over and rolled along tho ground with a clattering sound, sonr of them being destroyed by their rapid locomotion. Wonderful Feat of a Horse. An Eastern exchange say: On Thursday night last a horse attach ed to a sleigh look fright at the locomo tive of the Boston and Worcester Railroad near Boston, and, disengaging himself from the sleigb, dashed upon the track a bead of the engine. The train followed at a speed of fifteen miles per hour, and at every stopping place tuo uorse was discov ered to be in advance. Culverts wero plen tiful, but the uorse escaped them all, cross ing tbo bridge over the Charles River, at the junction with the branch, and passed safely over the bridge without flooring, a half n mile or so beyond, Ihe whole dis tance traveled was about fiu; miles, and the uncovered bridge was n0 feet long. An examination of the bridge proves that the horse, in leaping tbe spans of the structure, gathered upon every third sleep er, and this too in tho night time, a feat probably never excelled. The sleepers are about three feet apart. Will They Come Back? Tho Richmond papers say that every train from Manassas is crowded with sol diers' who are on their retuin horn a to visit their friends but who have promised to como back and re-cnlist. Wonder how much, under the circumstances, this prom ise is worth f The succession of rebel do feala which tho rebel cause is encountering at overy point must be a lively inducement to return. Onco at home, tbey will, wo fancy, come to the ccnclusion that patriot ism imperatively requires them to stay where they are, so as to help drive away the "Hessian invaders" when they go down that way. Besides, if they spend a few weeks at their firesides, it will proba bly prove so difficult for them to find their old comrades and commanders, unless they seek them among tho prisoners in tho Union camps, that they will.scarcoly at tempt so desperato an undertaking. iV. F. Herald. Mose Troops Called For. A bill was introduced into tho Mississippi Legis lature, and passed both houses, on tho re ception of tho news of Crittenden's defeat, calling out 20,000 volunteers for the war The Treasury Note Bill. So many amendments have been made in the Treasury Note Bill since its provi sions were giren to our readers, that tho following synopsis of the bill as it finally passed both Houses, will be useful to our readers: Section first provides that the Secretary of the Treasury bo authorized to issue Si cn rAA nnn nf TTntio1 !tnta nnfjs. without interest, payable to bearer, and of such denominations as may be aeemeu ex pedient, not less than fifty dollars; $50, 000,000 of these to be in lieu of tho de mand Treasury Notes authorized in July last, which shall bo taken up as fast as possible, and notes here provided substitu ted for them.

Any holder of theso notes, depositing a sum not less than fifty dollars with the Treas urer nf the United Stalest shall receive duplicate certificates of deposit, one to bo sent to the oecrerelary ot tnp treasury, who shall issuo to the holders an equal amout of bonds of the United State, bear- insr 6 .pei cent, interest, payable semi-an nually, and redeemable atter nve years, and navnbla twentv vears after date. Theso United States notes to be received as coin at their par value in payment of any future loans by the Secretary of the Treasury. Section second provides that tne oecro inrenf tlin Treasurv is authorized to issue. on the- credit of the U. S., bonds to an nmnnnt not exceeding S500.000.000. re deemable after five years and payable in twenty years, bearing six per cent, inter est, payable semi annually, with which to fund tho treasury notes and floating debt. . . 1 .1 Ar-s These houds to De not less man 5ou each.

Sectiou third describes the form and en graving of the notes and bonds, and appro priates $300,000 with which to execute tbo work.

It is thought at Washington turn, uie amount of certificates, provided for in the fourth KPftion. will reach thirty millions beforo the Treasury notes aro ready for circulation. Tho work on the latler is be ing hurried as much as possible. How Female Trio Came it over Secesh. Thn Wlicflllnrr Tntclliaencer credits a correspondent of'tho St. Clairsville Gazette with tho following story: One day last week", 3 women of Bridge nort Mrs. H.. Mrs. McC. and Mrs. M. all wives of soldiers in the Federal army, and participants of the chanties ot uuio, each' one of them drawing some two or three dollars per week; but not sausneu with spread-eaglo liberality, concluded, as .1 f , .1 nAnlr flli.IV tno lairy legeuus say, iu .. lune" in another clime. So, after having laid their heads together, it was arranged that one should be spokesman, another take care of the spoils, and another, a saucy Irish woman, should do tho crying. With that uuderstanding they entered tho town of amalgamation (Wheeling) under the guisfi of grass-widows of tho secession army; and then and there, after much sniveling and lamontntion, nnd abundance of tears, succeodea in stirring up tne syiupa llnoQ of sflvernl rebels to the tune of fifteen dollars in goods, pewter and groceries, and God only knows now rnucn uiey wouiu have got "had it not been that they ran foul of a citizen who knew that one of them had a husband in the Union army. Tho fact could not bo denied. Thus "the best laid schemes of mice and men gang aft a glee," and the trio had to skadadle to Ohio as fast as surdy legs could carry them, rejoiced that they had not been confiscated, after tho mannor of Heaton's blank paper. In justico to the secessionists of Wheeling, however, be it said, that tho women made a most favora blo report of their liberality and kindness. It was tho elder Weller, we think, who could not remember bow many men one woman "was ekal to in pint o' comin' it over a feller," but ho thought tho number rono firn nnd twentv. Tho abovo story is only nnothor confirmation of tho truth of Mr. Weller s observations ana tne souna noss of his experionco. gST A fellow that doesn't benefit tho world by his life does by his death How They Take It. Tbo fall of Donelson had a most dispir iling effect upon the rebgl leaders in Rich mond, ihey had intended to nave an Inauguration Ball but the Richmonders were in no frame of mind to dance, and the ball was abandoned. A prominent member of the Rebel Congress, in view of the disastrous stalo of things is reported to have said "that they might as well a bandon tbealempt to gain their indepen dence, lay down their arms, return to tho arts of peace, acknowledge themseves lair ly vanquished, and submit to whatever terms the North mav see tit to dictate, The tone of the Richmond press is lugu brious, and the same time terrifically ter rible. Tha Dispatch, edited by a North ern renegade, says: The crisis of the war is upon us, and reverse upon reverse comes in quicksucces- sron. We-have scarcely recovered from depression consequent upon our defeat at Fort Henry and Roanoke, ero we are call ed on to meet a still heavier calamity in tbe fall of Fort Donelsoo, and the surren der of our bravo troops holding that im portant post. If these bloody barbarians, whose hands are now soaked to the elbows in tho life blood of men defending their own homes and firesides, dream that they are now one inch nearer tho subjugation of tho South than when they started on their infernal mission, they prove themselves to be fools nnd madmen as well as savages and mur derers. They have taught us a lesson wo admit; tbey have admonished us to be more wary and circumspect, to husbands with greater caro our limited resources, and not to underate our enemy. Their success at Fort Donelson, gained only by vast superiority of number, will only have the effect of converting the whole population of tho South men, wo man and children into an immence army, who will resist them at every step, and everywhere "welcome them with bloody bands to hospitable graves." The old Richmond Enquirer also groans and raves as follows. The fortitude of our peoplo is again to be tried, and tho metal of which their courage is made to bo tested, by the last news from hort Donelson. Wo have mat with heavy disaster there. The wretches who aro invading our country wero enabled by the facilities of river transportation, to bring up reinforcemants to their previously whipped troops, and overwhelmed us with numbers. But this thing wo must do. By tho mangled body of every man who fell at the hands of the scoundrel murderers who have invaded tbe country of thoso who uever d d thorn any harm by the homes we have established by our industry by the beautiful land which wo have inher ited from our forefalhees by the fami lies that wo love by all that is noblo and patriotic aud brave, and in the fear and fervently invoking the favor of God we must all resolve, in our inmost souls, and vow with an irrevocable vow, that we will resist the enemy t the last extremity, and that we will dio if we can not become freemen 1 And this vow we must set about mak ing good. Let cowards tremblo if they will! Let vile niggards count their treas ures in agony: But what brave or generous citizen would wish to survive the ruin of his country? Who would desire to live when odious and vulgar despots have foot upou our necks ! No, fellow citizens, let us, as did our fathers, pledge our honor to each other and to tho world, that our lives and fortunes bo devoted to the vin ii .- i .t . ? .i dicalion ot liberties: ana mat, it tuese are iost nothing shall survive tho wreck, for nothing would bo worth saving. Courago then, peoplo of tho Confeder ate Slates: Antedeluvian Trees. The Chicago Tribune, of January sixth says. Wo saw, a few days since, two remark able specimen of petrified trees from Pike's Peak. They belong to tho University of Chicago, and so far as our knowledgo ex tends, though a young instil uiion, it has ihe finest and largast specimens of the an tedeluvian forests with which wo are ac quainted. While tho change to stono is complete, the structure of the wood is as perfectly preserved as if no chango had occurred. The petrifying agent was silica, and it may be seen incrusting some portions of the surface in whilo and blue' globules. Flora the curvature of the annual rings of growth, we judge tho tree from which these specimens como to have been- at least fourteen feet in diameter, nnd their number and thickness indicate that it must have required about one thousand six hun dred years to grow to that size. Tho larger specimen of the two is over nine feet in circumference at tho base, on which it stands nearly erect, nnd is five feet and a half high, and weighs ono ton and a half, 3,000 pounds. The other specimen is nearly as long, weighing half as much, and is nearly uniform in size from end to end, while the larger specimen tapers from tho base to about half tho size at tho top, The species to which thejp wonderful specimens belong has probably been long extinct, but they appear to resemble very closely in every respect tho California red wood. Unionists Victorious. Tho Louis ville Journal of Saturday says: It is a thrilling nnd most gratifying fact that, in all tho many fights and skirmish es which have taken placo in Kentucky, tho Union troops, though in general very greatly outnumbered, have been signally victorious. There has not been a solitary instanca of a different result. It would seem as if tho mero contact with the soil of Kentucky paralyzed the sinews of tho rebols' nrras and strengthened tho muscles of their legs. gJjtST Evorywhoro rejoicing over our vic tories have taken placo. Interesting Foreign News. The. latest advices from England remove the least fear of present interference in the affairs of this country. Thero aro not only rumors, but open charges that the wholo war panic was a stupendous finan cial, stock-brokers scheme, calculated to put money in tha already groaning pockets of the Rothschilds. The family of bank ers control the London Times, Lord Pal merston being connected both with the Times and ihe financial -interests of its managers. It is known that while the war fever was at the highest, and when, in consequence of the danger of hostilities, holders of stocks were disposing ot tuerri at ruinous sacrifices, the Rothschilds wero buying everything in the market, and that they have consequently aaaea tabuious sums lo the untold wealth they had beforo. It is also known that Palmerston nnd Russell had knowledge of a pacific dispatch from Secretary Seward which, in reality, dispersed every possibility of war upon the Trent affair tbreo weeks beforo its con tents wero known to the public; and thnt, furthermore, Palmerston expressly denied that any such dispatch had been received. This was to keep stocks down still longer, that tbo unscrupulous brokers might re alize their enormous profits at tho expense of tho people. Englishmen'can with poor grace taunt us with the frauds upon our Government, when they have sucu a twen ty million specimen of rascality among their head officials. But the game is now played out, the money is made, the gov ernment is twenty millions poorer, and peaco onco moro reigns. Thero is still an interest felt in the threats of recognition of the Confederacy. It was said that upon the opening of Parliament-n strenuous effort would bo made for such recognition. Upon the Cth in stant Earl Derby made an important speech upon the subject in the Houso of Lords. This speech was so raisreported in the Times thnt tho gentlemen was made to say directly tho opposite of what he really said. Upon the next day he currecled this important misrepresentation. He said ho would not notice the other inaccuracies in the report, which he believed was not so accurate as reports in that journal gener ally were, and ho only alluded to tho one bo had mentioned because it attributed to him exactly the opposite of what he utter ed. In reference to the recognition of the Southern Confederacy, the Times report ed him to say that the time had nearly ar rived when her Majesty's Government ought to bo called upon to recognizo tho successful revolt of thoso Confederate States.- Now, what he did say was, that in his judgement tbe time had not arrived when Her Majesty's government was called upon to recognize the boutuern Uonteaera cy, and he added that although the prac tice of tho Majesty's government was to re cognize any de facto government that had succeeded in establishing itself, he did not think the resistance of the Southern States had been so complete and so successful as to iustifv them in recognising tho inde pendence of a Slato which had not yet shown tho "power of securing and main taining their own independence. How the Rebels Feel. BALTIMORE, Feb. 19, 1862. Tho most pxtensive nrennrntions had been made for tho inauguration of Jeff, rinvia n nrftudent on the 22d inst. The ceremony was to have been performed with all the pomp and splendor that could ba devised. A military pirade and ban quet were to add loo the attractions of the occasion, and a grand ball was to conclude tho festivities of the day. Now, however, all this is changed. In view of tho serious hat have happened, the ceremo ny is to bo of tho simplest kind, without pomp or parade, without any military dis nlou wiihont hnnnuetinr or feastincr: and i j i j 0 , . as to the ball, as ono of tho ladies said. "It would be disgracetul to be aancing ana nnmnlnir ourselves after iucb defeats, and wluln our soldiers aro suffering." So tho ball, too, has been abandoned. On Sunday last tbe Spottswood House, nnd the pavement inTront of it, were filled with excited crowds, discussing tho news from Fort Donelson, and the critical con dition of the Confederacy. A prominent raemier of tho rebel Congress, whose rela tion lo the. rebel President gave great weight to his words, declared "that the day badcorae in which the Southern Confed eracy was to pass through tho fire; that the events of the next three months would decide whether or uot tho Southern people are worthy of being an independent nation; that the fortunes of war consists of alter nate victories nnd reverses and that, hav ing had their day of triumph, they were now about to experience a period of da feats; that the preparations of so skilful and scientific a General as McClellan, made at his leisure, resulting in ihe forma tion of an army of 600,000 soldiers, with the discipline of regulars, must result' in some successes on his part. .But tho re verses," he said, "would try tho temper, the powers of endurance nncl tho patriot ism of tho Southern peoplo.

The following spirited sketch is from a private letter in the 2d "Ohio Cavalry to his mother. It is dated Platte City, Feb., 17th. It proves the truth of the charges that have been made of the fugitives be ing returned by- the commanding officers, and then to tha honor of the Reserve, and the bravo boys who accomplished the feat tells how a slave was rescued from his inhuman master and sent to land of freedom. We omit names and some other details that might get the writer into troublo with his officers if published : "We had a big lime tho other night. A. darkey ran away from his master, and camo to Company . Ho was a good fellow, and we wero going to take him with us to Fort Scott; but along cama his. old master with an order from Ihe Colonel to huut for his nigger. Tho Colonel was not to blame; he had to obey his General. -The old sinner had three men with him. We knew bo was secesh, and wa wero aw ful mad. Tho darkey said: "don't let him tako me; he will kill me." Ouroffi cers wero mad too. When night came, ono of our best boys came lo mo and said: "Yankee, that slave must see Leavenworth to-night." I was in for it. After roll, at 9 o'clock, wo started. There were three of us. The boys' names were and and mvself. The boys were just the right kind for such snch a thing big, strong and good pluck. I am not very large or very stout, but I like that kind of work. It was 4 miles to tha old sinner's house; wa went across lots to avoid tho patrol. We got thero about 1 1 o'clock. There was a light in the bouse; wo went up and looked through the window. What a sight! three men, beside tho master, had tho slave stripped and lied, aud one of tho men whipping him with a cowhide! Mother, I bad read of such things, but never saw them before. It does not come home lo read of them as it does to see ihem. Thero stood tho slavo, with his bare back bleeding an awful sight! We ran in, and C told him to stop that. Tho master said it was his nigger, and ho would lick him when ho wanted to, and ho hit the slavo again. We had our re volvers out and ready. C. knocked tho old fellow down with tho butt of his" re volver. Tha other men never said a word. Wo took tho slavo down and had him put on his clothes. The boys s'layedand watched, and as I knew tho road to Leav venwortb, I went part of tha way with him, nnd showed him tho way to go. The boys waited till I came back." Indiana Senator.
