Our afflicted Postmaster has been on the fence so long, tbe upper slab of which being filled with ugly splinters and sliv ers, that he is now in a most distressing situation. Heretofore he has been de pending opon the "Head -Center to keep him up by applying salve and ointment to the lacerated parts, but since that in dividual has skedaddled to tbe Johnson I camp, no one is left so mean to perform that duty. Benedict is already exclaim ing, "Pity the sorrows cf a poor office bolder." i . Holder. Postmaster Removed. W have reliable authority for stating that Seta Marshall, Postmaster at Paines villa, has bees removednd Dr. U. M. Sey mour appointed to tna position., Seymour was a member of the Philadelphia Can I vention, and is devoted, "body and ouL to I ' ' w' .IT 4 A Row in the Herald-Johnson Clique. The clique just now is at loggerhead, among themselves. Tbey are quarreling over the spoils. It seems that the clique has now two leaders ; one is Geo. B. Sen. ter, Eeqn and tho other Oliver C. Scoville, Esq. Both went to Philadelphia and smuggled themselves into the Convention as delegates one hailing from Guernsey county, and th9 other from some other out-of-the-way county. Both were after the same office that of Internal Revenue Collector, Mr. Senter wanting it for the present appointee, Mr. Johnson, and Mr. Scoville wanting it for himself. It seems that the Head-Center got the inside track and carried off the prize. The Scoville faction swears that Mr. Johnson, the ap pointee, shall not have the office if they can prevent it. In our opinion, if servility to the pro- slavery interest, as has been shown by the whole Scoville family ever since we knew anything about them, is any claim to the favors of President Johnson, then Crockett Scoville is fairly entitled to the place. Ho has alwaye shown himself to be the big. gest toady to pro-slavery principles. He did make profession once of being a Union man, but with what sincerity can be judged by the fact of his going post-haste to Philadelphia and offering himself for sale, some three hundred pounds avoir dupois, to the Johnsonites, and they have bought him, at least we should judge bo by the fact of his going around blatting Johnsonism. The Sght in the clique grows in propor tion, and the indications are that the Sco ville faction outnumber the Senter fac tion. For our part we have the same feeling as the woman had when her bus- band was fighting the bear " did not care which whipped." The Herald on the Rampage. Last Saturday the County Convention passed a resolution unanimously request ing Judge Spalding to give satisfactory assurances that he will stand by tbe Union party as against President Johnson. The Herald published the resolution in iUe port of the convention, but uttered not one word of comment. I esterday the Leases re-iterated the sentiment of that resolution, and forthwith the Her ald went into the rampage, and, awful to relate, read the Leases out of the party!!! That is, it made a ludicrous attempt to do so. We will ask our modest Johnson cotemporary why it did not direct its puny efforts against the members of the County Convention and read them out of the party ? They did precisely the same thing as the Leases did. The Herald is great on making " false statements, but the statement it made yesterday that the Leader bolted the nomination of Judge Spalding, is the most utterly false statement it ever made. The Liases expeete to support Judge Spalding, but when such a politician as Mr. Senter, the real owner of the Herald estabiiMiurumt.. baa deserted the Union party, and rumors has it that his bosom political friend, Judge Spalding, intends lo follow suit, we must have satisfactory assurances that the party will not be old. For demanding such assurancos the Herald utters a windy proclamation reading the Leases out of the party ! Tbe soft patcd fool of that concern has more than his share of conceit in fact he has it to such an extent as to make him self absolutely deformed by bis exhibition of it as was illustrated in his sheet of yesterday. To relieve the trouble of our Johnson cotemporary, we will say that if Judge Spalding's constituents should respectfully ask him to define his position as to his future political course, it ia their right so to do, our sapient Postmaster editor to the contrary notwithstanding So the best thing our cotemporary can do is to try and get off from that fence he ha' been on so long, and keep cool. The Herald Reads the Leader out of the Party. Our Johnson cotemporary, the Herald, with a modesty unheard of, has read the Leases out of the Union party, forsooth because it insisted upon Judge Spalding's giving satisfactory assurances tbat he will not go over to Johnsonism. Before the Herald undertakes to read the Leadeb out of the party, perhaps it had bettor first read itself into the party, from which it deserted in order to retain the Cleve land Postmastersbip. Birds of a Feather Flock Together. Tbe Plain Dealer came out yesterday and Bided with the Herald (Johnson) in denouncing tbe Leasee's article request ing J udge Spalding to define his position on Johnsonism. The Herald Remaineth Silent. The Herald ha said nothing denuncia tory of tbe wholesale removals of Union office-holders and the substitution of Johnson-coppertripe of politicians. The Herald is much troubled about tbe Leases being controlled by a joint stock company, and has a good deal to say about it. Perhaps we may have occasion to give the Herald establishment a ventilation, and show how the senior partner, owning only one-third interest, reigns supreme and keeps the other two partners under his inumD yea, rmaer nis toot. The Herald has not one word condem natory of Geo. B. Senter for deserting tbe Union party and going over to the Copper-Johnson party. Action on the part of the Herald speaks louder than words. It sympathizes with desertion to Johnson ism, but calls tbe attempt of earnest Union men to guard against being Tylor- ized, "bolting." The Herald undertook to be very face tious in its last issue by saying that it : understands Mr. Cowles will run as the bolters' candidate for Congress." Mr. C. never made such an ass of himself as Mr. Benedict did last winter when he modestly asked some members of the Legislature to propose his name as a can didate for the United States Senate. The Herald Remaineth Silent. Ego. Some one statistically inclined sends the following to the Washington Chroni cle: The President, in his speech to the com mittee from the Philadelphia Convention on Saturday last, says: "I am as much op posed to egotism as any one.

Inauguration of President Fairchild— Inauguration of President Fairchild— The Inaugural Ceremonies — Other Inauguration of President Fairchild— The Inaugural Ceremonies — Other Commencement Miscellanies — The Grand Concert. [Special Correspondence Cleveland LEADER.] OBERLIN, August 22nd. THE INAUGURATION. The inausruration of a President at Oberlin has not been a common ocjur- rence. The first President, Rev. Asa Mahan, held his post for sixteen or sev enteen years, resigning in 1850, when his euwcessor, the venerable President Finney, was selected to succeed him. During the past year the advancing age and increas ing infirmities of Mr. Finney compelled his resignation, andnt a recent meeting of the Board of Trustees Professor James H. Fairchild was unanimously elected to fill the vacancy. THE NEW PRESIDENT. A more fitting choice could hardly h been made. Professor, now President Fairchild, has been identified with the college, as student and teacher, frem his and its earliest youth, and for the last few years has borne upon his shoulders much of tho internal labor and responsibility of the college. No man is better fitted for the post by endowments, by acquirements, by reputation or by respect, than he, and the hearts of all who love Oberlin were made glad when his name was an nounced as the choice of the Board. Prof. Fairchild comes of good New England and Puritan stock. He was born in Stock bridge, Massachusetts, in 1817, and is one of a family of eight, four brothers and four sisters, all of whom but one, together with their father and mother, are still living. Five of these children, by the by, three brothers and one sister, en joyed tbe benefit of the college course at Oberlin, and one, the Rev. E. H. Fair child, has long been connected with tbe college as Principal of the Preparatory Department. 1 he family moved to crown helm, Ohio, while the future President was but a year old, and found a home in the primitive forest. Under the teaching of most excellent parents of the old Mas sachusetts school, he became a Christian when thirteen years old. Always of deli cate health, and always remarkably stu dious, tne boy was nr.t in all n is classes at the district school, and subsequently in college. Preparing for college in Brown- neim and .lyria, he came to uoeran at its very inception, joined the first fresh man class ever organized, took the com plete course here, and graduated in 1838, at the age of twenty. While in college he was obliged to depend mainly on himself for support, and generally finding plenty of employment with plane and chisel, aided to construct most of the college buildings erected at that time. immediatelv on completma: his theologi cal course be was appointed a tutor, and has been connected with the college, with out interruption, during the twenty-five years which have passed since then. He was soon promoted to the chair of .Lan guages, and has since filled in succession that of Mathematics and that of Moral Philosophy and Theology. The latter was his position at the time of bis election to the Presidency. A scholar by nature and natetvumwa 00 modest to tnrus. himself, into public notice, be has never Wa prominent in political or reformatory movements, except in his legitimate sphere as teacher and citizen, but his sen timents on these subjects were clear, de cided and openly expressed. He has al ways been a reformer and a radical one. and has done more for reform in mould ing and directing the minds of students for the right than many a man who stands high on the rolls of fame. As a teacher, as a thinker, as a manager of young minds, he is almost beyond criticism. Un der his management we look for better things from Oberlin than even in the past. THE EXERCISES. The Inauguration Exercises toek place this afternoon in the church. The plat form was crowded with the trustees and faculty of the college, and the bodv of the chnrch was filled to overflowing with the throng of listeners. Hon. If. D. Jrarish, of Sandusky, a venerable member of the Hoard ol Trustees, presided, X atner Keep," as everybody who knows him calls this reverend and beloved man, now eighty-four years old, the senior mem ber of the Board of Trustees, and one of the earliest friends and founders of Oberlin, made the introductory address, j presenting the President elect with the charter and laws of the college, and im- j pressirely cnarging mm and nis col lea-! gues concerning the duties which they were to assume and maintain. The In- augural Prayer was delivered bv Rev. J. ! A. l home ot Cleveland. The inaugural i Address was then read by the President. ; We present below some extracts from this remarkably interesting and appro- j priate address, regretting that our space ; does not permit us to give the whole : OPENING WORDS. "The trust which you commit to me, Fath ers and Brethren, is one of graven t re?pon- sibiiity, and if I were obliged to feel that it must tail on me alone or cnieny, l coma not accept the responsibility. The fathers under whoso fostering care the work has been carried on tnese tnirty years and more, are still spared to ns. The habit of looking up to them for counsel and encour agement, indulged through many years of connection with the college as pupil and teacher, must cling to me ami; ana wnue ttrey Jive and labor here, it will be a relief to know that the burden rests first on them. Under such genial shade it hat been mv pleasure and joj thus far to lire and work. God gr&Dt me the privilege for many years to come." After this graceful exordium, the Pres ident spoke in terms of fitting praise of his associates of the faculty, of the mass of students and of the community which em bosoms the college, whose excellencies, he said, rendered his task lighter. THE GROWTH OF OBERLIN. Oberlin College is now entering upon its second generation, one-third of a century having elapsed since the foundation stone was laid. During this period it baa borne a prominent part in the work of Christian ed ucation in the West, aud in addition has contributed its share to the solution of some pecial problems, educational, social politi cal, ecclesiastical and theological. The general work has always been made para mount, and other interests have been admit ted only as they seemed to grow out of the work, or to promise some help toward the grand result. It is doubtful whether an equal amount of education si work was ever performed by aoyscnooi in tne country aur ing the first generation of its existence. This will not be regarded as a boastful claim, for no human foresight generated the forces by which this result has beea accomplished. The first annual catalogue presented a pre paratory or high school, with a total atten dance of one hundred young men and women, and contained the expression of a hope, on the part of the sanguine founders, that advanced classes would be formed and furnished with instructors, as the progress of the pupil should require, until all depart ments, preparatory, collegiate and theologi cal, should be fully organized. To all hu man wisdom this was an extravagant ex pectaiion, but in one year or a little more from that time, every department was in foil working order, with classes in every stage of advancement, even to the Senier theological year. Thus during the years past the work has gone en among vb, pri marily a work of christian education, but an education charged with energetic, ag gressive life, acting in many points upon the interests of the outer world. As the immediate numerical result, our catalogue presents the names of 341 who hare taken the Theological course, 499 who have grad uated from college, and 392 who have com pleted the Ladies' course of four years, in all 1,132 graduates: and some rttecn thou sand others who have enjoyed the advanta ges of the school for a single year or more. Of such results it is proper to make grateful mention, l ne wore Has been arduous, car ried on with limited means, and in the midst of formidable difficulties, but alwavs full of interest and yielding a rich reward There is no higher honor than to be called to serve m such labor. THE CHARACTER OF OBERLIN COLLEGE LIFE. " But it is not so much my purpose to speak of results as to call attention to the somewhat universal style of college life which has sprung up in connection with our work, and which has characterised our schooldom to the present time. The earnest, aggressive spirit of the enterprise has to a great extent prvaaea tne boar oi our stu dentsthe spirit of work an apprehension that there is much to be done in the world and that they are to help. 5 The prevailing spirit shows itself in the discipline and oruer ot the school. Our work in this respect has often been a won der to ourselves, notwithstanding our large numbers, ranging for thirty years from five hundred to a thousand in attendance, with a governing force entirely inadequate to close personal surveiuancand without any eifort to realise so close a supervision, we have beou favored with an unusual degree ol goM conduct, oi nueuty in duty, and in terest in study. The instances calling for disciplinary notice irom a teacher nave been very rare. ' A word from a teacher in tbe way ol private suggestion has in general proved to be sufficient. v Among the multi tudes of new comers in the lower depart ments it is not so rare to fi ad one who affords no promise of a successful course, and who oeiore cneciosooi nia prooation is punisuea with a permanent leave of absence, but in the regularly organized classes of the col lege nnu jsuios ue;artaieui., uuiuuonug from two to four hundred in constant attend ance, such an event has not occurred on an average more than once in five years. In one instance at least a period of ten years or more expired without a single exclusion from these classes, it is net because grave offences against order and propriety have been ovor-looxed. They nave not appearea. A year has often passed without a sicgle case calling for disciplinary attention on the part of the Faculty." The President proceeded to speak of the friendly and comparatively unceremonious feeling existing between students and teachers; of the absence of monitorial surveillance, each pupil reporting his own infractions oi rules; of the exclusion oi the system of "honors'1 and prizes of tho non-existence of secret societies ; and of the friendly feeling existing between the several classes, in each of which respects explaining the marked distinction be tween Uberlin and most university towns. THE TYPE OF OBERLIN COLLEGE LIFE. " In a word, the type of college society and influence realised among us is like that of well ordered general society, in the re lations that subsist and in the mnuenesit generates. Students here are still members of the community at large, and share in its interests and responsibilities. The irregu larities which occur are of the same kind as those which may occur in any well-ordered community, and are not the disorders peculiar to a University town. These facts, thus briefly stated, ansm to indicate some unusual arrangement ot educational lorees, yielding a result in our judgment as desir able as it is perhaps unusual. It may be supposed at first thought that these acknowl edged advantages ot manly spirit and of college order have au offset that such an intimate sympathy with the outer world, in volving a share in the duties of common life, must be a drawback upon successful study. It is not an unnatural thought that concentration upon study requires seclusion, and that ordinary collega hie, taking the student out from society, into a distinct community devoted to tha Bingle purpose of study, afijrds the conditions of highest suc cess. But in effdet a new society is thus in stituted making equal if not greater de mands upon the thought acd attention of the student. The excitements of ordinary college society are not less, probably greater, than in ordinary Jile. The matters ot in terest are not of themselves of weighty con cern, trar rc' ' . y.Iam v aroitfixi-S matters. A community of studenta must have something to expend thoir excitability upon, aside from the regular order of study. It the interests of the country are excluded college politics will take their place, and ins liHiecoinaiuiinjr ia mure ucopiy mirreu by the election of a president of a literary society than of a president of the Republic. H is even questionable whether tne presence of graver matters would not consolidate the character, and dispose to a better use of time and opportunities, btudy will be elec tive in proportion to the motives which in duce it, and he who lives in sympathy with the movements of the world and feels its claims is most likely to give himself earn estly to the performance of his work. "But it there were an actual expenditureot force required to maintain an interest in these grave matters, it is by no means clear that the expenditure would not be wise. Tho College' is a place for education, not merely for the acquisition of learning. If a knowledge of books were the only requi site, perhaps a cloister would be better than a College. But the great object is such a discipline as qualifies for service in the world. Learning has its place, but it is to be contemplated as an instrumentality, not an end. Successful education must give pewer and must use study for the develop rrent of power. This power comes from generous impulses and noble aims, a knowledge of men and feeling of their wants, a knowledge of God and sympathy witn His works, a human niinu cnargea with learning but without any kindling of soul toward God or toward men, is not a power. The simplest heart that loves God and pities men is mightier far. No one over questions that a prevailing religicus n Hue nee is essential in any desirable sys tem of education, and he who is educated apart from any such moulding force, lacks a prima element of power, not to speak of the great loss to his own heart and charac ter. A similar power attaches to the rising Interests of the world to impress and ener gizg the student. Humanity and religion alike are needed to stimulate and inspire to generous action. It cannot but be desirable that these forces should operate up?n the character, during this moulding process of education, vr ithout this there must be a loss, and there is danger that it will become permanent. That style of student, lite which shall most naturally keep open the great channels of sympathy with the great interests of tbe world, at the same time tbat it brings the faculties under rigorous dis cipline, must be the true ideal. Thus the forces which act upon tae character in its formation, are the same that will prevail through life, the normal forces of society." The i-resident then took up the question whether the aggressive spirit which marked the early days of Oberlin was likely to be permanent, and in answer to it enumerated the arrangements which have formerly contributed to its existence, and which still continue permanent. Among them he noted th embosoming of the col lege, in a sympathizing christian comma nity, which received into its society and brought under its influence all the students; the joint education of the sexes ; the vast "preparatory department," affording pop ular education to those whose time and means prevent them from taking a more ambitious course; and to the custom of Oberlin scholars to teach during the winter montks, giving experience of labor and taste of practical life. In this connection, too, he spoke of the college department and of Oberlin theolgy. We regret that we cannot give our readers the benefit of these portions of tbe address, clear andconvinc- ! na as they are, but our regret is less be cause the people of Northern Ohio are al- ready well intormed upon the class ot top ics which we have thus aummrnised. The ' relation of Oberlin to the colored people was thus referred to : . OBERLIN AND THE COLORED MAN. "One other feature of our work has brought us into connection with the world without and has contributed to give direction to our eflbrts. I refer to the attitude of the college toward the colored people of the land. It nnt Ar(Huarv to review tha hitnrv. This i one fact alone maintaining equal priv ileges for the colored race would have saved us from stagnation during the generation past. It has mouiaea tne character ot our school in its general influence and left a lasting impression upon the vast majority of the thousands that hare been gathered here. Wherever found they are the intelli gen and constant advocates of freedom and justice lor uie wiureu uiau. aio speeitu ci- fort has been required to secure this result no persistent course of instruction. It has grown out of the simple fact that our stu dents have looked in the face those who have suffered the wrong, aud have felt its injustice. It has been a privilege to the colored student to be admitted here. It has been an equal blessing to his white brother to be so educated as to take naturally a right position on the great questions of our coun try and our time. Oar educational work would have been greatly marred if ibis ele ment had been omitted. But it iarfot a fact of the past alone: it reaches intsi'the future. The work of the education and enfranchise ment of the colored people ia before us for another generation. The war has not com pleted, but merely introduced it. A share in this work is laid upon ns in the provi dence of God by our constitution and our .history, we cannot withdraw from this conflict if we would. The field is open to us and it is impossible that we should not enter in. This call is our birth right and heritage, ana is among the influences which for years to come shall inspire the place, the college and the people with the earnest working spirit. The following is the concluding para- grapn oi tne aaaress : "Such are the treasures which the past hands down to us, such the responsibilities of the present and the hopes and encour agements tor the future. We may go for ward with the assurance that He who has laid the work upon us will not fail those who commit to him their way with the prayer that the work of their hands may be established.

In response to an invitation to attend a dinner of financiers and others in Boston, Secretary McCulloch sent a letter declining the courtesy, witn tne louowing remarxs: "Although it was hoped tbat ere tms the eurronoy of the country would have been brougbt nearer to tne specie standard, l am sure that the people have cause for con gratulation that our finances are in so healthy a condition as they are. Since March, lsoo, the war Has been DrougOl to a "Moaful conclusion : immense armies nave oeen aiuoaiiQeu ; every soiaier been paid before being mustered out of tbe service, and all maturing obligations of the Government have been satisfactorily pro vided for. while the national debt is nearly $250,000,000 less than it was estimated it would be at tbe present time. The reduc tion of it has averaged for the past year more than $10,000,000 per month. If no other nation ever rolled up debt so rapidly, none certainly ever commenced the reduc tion of its debt so soon after its creation. If our currency is depreciated, we have so far escaped the financial troubles that usually occur among nations at the close of expen sive wars, aud which there was reason to apprehend wosld happen ns at the termi nation of the great war in which we have been engaged. If the business of the country is conducted upon a changing and uncertain basis, it has been subject to no severe revolutions. If our taxes are heavy, our resources are unlimited, while the dis position of the people to bear cheerfully their burdens ia a surprise even to those who have the greatest confidence in the honor and good faith ef a free people. In my opinion the people of the United States are to make republicanism illustrious among nations by establishing the fact that the securities of a Republican Government are the safest of all securities, and that the people who impose taxes upon themselves are the most sealons of their national credit. I do not, however, disguise the fact that great financial difficulties are still io be overcome; that our present prosperity is rather apparent than real ; that we are measuring values by a false standard ; that we are in fact exposed to all the dangers which attend an inflated and redeemable currenoy, which diminishes labor. The specie staodatd must be restored, prices re duced, industry stimulated, the products of the country increased. The balance of trade between the United States and other nations seem to be against us. All the great inter tercets of the country cared for and protect ed by wise and impartial legislation, and ail sections of the country will be brought again to harmonious and practical relations with the general government. That the country will be again thus really prosper ous is as certain as anything in the future. That it should be so at an early day, and, too, without financial troubles, it is necessa ry to have proper legislation by Congress, economy in pnblicexpenditure,and fidelity on the part of those who are entrusted with the management of the publie revenues. Trusting that you will pardon me for writing so long a letter in acknowledging the receipt of your kind invitation, I r main yonr very truly obedient servant, HUGH McCULLOCH. Messrs. William Gray, Nathaniel Thayer, Thomas B. Wales, Andrew Hull, and others, Boston, Mass, HEAVY STORM. Post Hood, N. 8., August 23, 10 P. M.
