President Orant Impromptu Keceptlon at
!! Capitol Arrangements for the Inau
guration on Monday Nest.
Qovervok RumEnroRD B. Hates, o
Ohio, the PrcsIJent-elect of the United States,
arrived ta this city with his family yesterday
mornfnjr. by a section of the Western train, at
the Baltimore in J Potomac depot. He was
Immediately driven to the residence of Sena
torsberman, whose truest he and his family
will be uotll hit formal inauguration takes
place, when he will take poisesslon of the
White Home. A party of gentlemen and la
dies, comprising many distinguished citizens
of Ohio and their wires, accompanied the
President-elect on his Journey. Governor
Hayes and party lates Inthoday visited the
WLlte House and paid his respects to Presl
dent Grant, by whom be was cordially received.
After IcaIo? the White Heo.se the party
proceeded to the Capitol. In the Vice-Pre M
dent'a room Governor Hate held quite a
levee, a large number of Senators and mem
bers of Congress being In attendance. Re
turning from the Capitol, Governor Hate
and his family spent the rest of the day and
evening ln-doors. Many distinguished per
sons paid their respects to tho President-elect
at the residence of Senator Sherman, tho
street In front of which was blocked with car
riages nntil a late hour.
The Arrival at the Depot.
A thou land or more peoplo wore assembled at
the Balttmoro and Potomac Depot at 9 o'clock
ye (Unlay morn Inst to witness the arrival
ofUoverntr Hayes, who was expected upon the
e 12 train bringing- passengers from the West via
Fifty policemen were detailed at the depot and
commanded by Major Rlehards, Captain Brock
aad Lieutenant Kelly. The omesrs wtre kept
bnsyln keeping the crowd from praising oat of
the depot building upon the long platform. The
crowd was ranged In the depot io that a passage,
about eight fest wide, extended from the rear to
the front or main entrance, on U street. The
time of
of the President elect was not announced until
a late hour, otherwlie the crowd at tht depot
would hare been much greater.
When the v12 train arrived every neck was
stretched to catch a glimpse or the Presidential ;
party, bat the crowd was disappointed.
A number of passengers got off the
train and ran the gauntlet be.
tween the lines of spectators, but President
Hsyea was not among them.
Shortly before the arrival of this train, Sena,
tor Sherman, Oovernor Dennlson, and Colonel
llocon ofOeneral Sherman's stal, arrived at the
depot, and one of the office rooms on tho second
floor of the building was given up to them.
The reason that Oovernor Hayes did not arrive
en the regular train was that It was deemed ex
pedlent at Bsltlmpre to make two trains, and
Oovernor Hayes, aad the large party accompany
lng, him took the second section, which left Hal.
tlmore at 8 28.
This was not generally known among thoie
nwaitlngthe arrival of the Presidentelect, at
the depot, but the squad or polio did not go away,
and so the crowd stayed. About half past nine
o clock Senator Sherman, General Sherman,
Oovernor Dennlson, and others accompanying
them descended the stairs from the second nwr,
and made their way out
But few others were allowed the privilege of
rein among the first to woleome the President
elect to the capital. At v W the cry, "Here she
cornel"1 ran along the line, and tho second sec
tlon of the train came hilling Ints the depot,
there was a ruth, and In a minute all was over.
Senator Shcrmaa and his party met the Preil
dent elect and family ai they were about lodis
embark from the train. The welcome was brief.
The Senator and the General hoisted umbrella.
President-elect Hayes took Senator Sherman's
aim, and General Sherman escorted Mrs. Hayes.
With the Senator and the President elect In ad
ranee, and the Qeneral and Mrs. Hayes next fol.
lowing, the party hastened down the long plat
form and through the depot. Oovernor Dennl
ion, Colonel llaeon and other gentlemen looked
after the other members of the party.
There was no demomtratlon on the part of the
crowd, until the Presldent-eleet and Senator
Sherman entered the depot building on their way
to the carriages drawn up at the 11 street en
trance. The crowd had been disappointed once,
and they were not yet entirely sure that the
Presidential party had arrived. When
the President elect entered the door of
the building, bis face was recognized
by some In the crowd, who Immediately set up a
vociferous cheering. The Presidentelect raised
bis bat, and a i this made It evident that no mil.
tako bad been made, tho entire crowd bagm to
cheer lustily, hats were thrown In the air, men
jumped upon the leats, and while the Preiideot
elect and party wero liaising through the
depot, the enthuilaira was at the hlgheit
1 Itch. Emcrgtog from the H street
entrance. The members or the party stepped In
to carriages. Preiident elect and Mrs Hayes,
Oen Sherman and Mrs. bherman occupied one

Governor Hajes and his family partook or a
hearty breakfart, which was laid In waiting for

boil, Senator Sherman.
The Wit to the Witll Iloue.
Shortly Wfore noon tbe President-elect, Sena
tor bherman. Governor Dennlson, and WebbC
Hayes drove to the lxeeutlve Mansion.
The Cabinet was about to aisemble, and Secre
tariei Chandler and Cameron were already
present, home preliminary conversation had
been had on pending business. The becretary
cfVar hnd laid before the 1 "resident several
dispatches received from General Augur and Mr.
Packard, at New Orleans, when the announce
ment was made to President Grant that the
President-elect bad entered the building.
UeTore the President had tine te leave his seat
at the Cabinet table, the door of the Cabinet
room cpened, and the PreslJent-elect, and thos
accompanying Dim, were uibcred into tneroom.
President elect nays advanced hastily across
the room, an 1 approached President Grant with
evident emotion. President Grant had scarcely
time to rise iromhis chair whea the President
elect reached him.
The latter, grasping President Grant's hand In
both or his and looking steadily Into the Pretl.
dent's eyes, seemed Tor a moment too fa' I for ex
pression. President Grant, more self possessed,
spoke up heartily i "Gov. Hayes, I am glad to
welcome you. I congratulate you upon your
election and your safe arrhal In Washington.
The President elect, recovering himself, replied .
''Thank you, Mr. President, ror your welcome aad
congratulations. My journey Has been a safe and
1 leasant one " The President turning, presented
Secretaries Chaidlerand Cameron; at this mo
ment Secretary Fish entered, and was presented,
next followed Postmaster General Tyncr, then
Attorney General Tan, then Secretary Rotxon,
all of whom ware In turn presented. Owing to
bis continued illness, Secretary Morrill was a'f

seat at the Cabinet table, and was about entering
Into conversation, when
was banded to him. Leaving becretary Fln and
Postmaster General Tyner to entertain the Pres
ident elect, with Secretary Cameron and General
Sherman, be withdrew into the recess of one of
tbe windows, overlooking the southern portico.
Here the President read the dispatch and held a
snort con saltation in regard to the action
proposed to be taken. The dispatches
Irons General Augur contained simply a stae
ment of attain In New Orleans. A dispatch re
ceived from Mr. Packard made Inquiry as to tbe
truth of certain telegrams sent from Washing
ton to New Orleans by tbe Louisiana Representa
tives In Congress, announcing the President's In
tention to withdraw the federal troops from
further support of either ol tbe claimants for the
gubernatorial authority, and requested
from tbe President a statement as to
his Intentions In that respect. The President
acted promptly upon these dispatches, and
directed tbe Secretary of War to Inform General
Augur of his determination, which will be seen
lully stated elsewhere. Instructions were handed
to General bherman, who Immediately enclosed
them in an envelop and sent them by a
courier to Adjutant General Townsend with
directions to prepare them In a formal man
nerand telegraph them at once to General
Augur. This special consultation out of
delicacy for tbe feelings or the President-elect
was held out or his bearing, and when tbe matter
had been disposed of, tbe President returned to
his seat at the Cabinet table and entered Into
with the President-elect, which lasted fully twen.
ty minutes. Tbe President-elect Invited Presi
dent Grant and bis family to be his guests at tbe
executive mansion during the remainder or their
stay In Washington. Tbe President thanked
the Presidentelect, and said that
he bad already accepted tbe hospitalities or Sec
retary lib, and would net wish to change.
The conrersatlon then turned upon subjects of
moro Immediate Importance to President-elect
Hayes, particularly with reference to the politi
cal situation and tbe advisability or his taking
the oath of offlce earlier than the day fixed for
his inauguration, which will be Monday, March 5.
The rest of the conversation was of an entirely
private nature. During this conversation the
other members of the party broke ap Into groups,
and engaged in cheerful talk upon current topics.

"1 be Chief Marshal was authorised by the com
mittee toappointsuch additional marshals as he
may deem necessary.
To Itepreecntrntlon In the Cabinet An Ap
peal to tbe Appointing; power for Recog
nition The more It ts reflected upon the more reason
able does the demand of the Pacific Coast for
representation In the Cabinet or the new Ad
ministration appear. Tho Pacific- Coast com
prises the great country west or the Itocky
Mountains, including) (he Becky mountain
region. The people of that section are enter
prlslng,sealous, patriotic and fullofenergy. Tbel
sympathies are ever active ror the whole Union,
because the builders ot the new States and Ter
rltorlei gathered themselves together from every
state on this side rrpm Maine to j'lorida, and
never carried with them to the Pacific therecol
lection of their home people. The early
Calllornlans, before tho overland railroad
was constructed learned to maintain
themselves In Independence and for
along time, they wero so remote from their old
homes that they adopted a mode of speaking or

from them. They used to talk abo ut going home

pioneers or these Paclfio Mates are scatherd
throughout the territories of Arltona, Utah,

or tbe Rocky Mountains are bound together by
common interests. State lines and territorial
lines make no sectional divisions of them. They
have a commerce on the Pacific and enterprises
developing upon the Islands of the Pacific,
which are now tbe great hope ol the nation.
Their agricultural resources are subject to condl.

a peculiar Interest, which certainly requires the
attention of tbe Government. They bare the
vast region of Alaska to develop, to people, to
utilise for ship building and trading. title
they have so many peculiar Interests

new enterprise, they know also all the wants of
tbe country eastward from which came their pio

do not understand thetu, eanuot comprehend t heir

upon the minds or the Pad tto Coast

no such sympathetic response on this side. Dur

To The People op Louisiana :
I congratulate you upon your law abiding con

anxletv and trial. The history of the period, so
far as you are concerned, has been but a steady
exhibition of hlEbestelvlo virtues. The sltua
Hon of your affairs at this moment demand.
more tnan ever exercise or combined nrmneis,
moderation, and devotion to principle. We now
have assurance that our great com
monwealth Is about to resume her rightful
position In the union of States, and in the con
trol of her own Internal affairs. You must
therefore continue to maintain public peace;
restrain from all violence, and leave to those
who are charged with the duties of tho
Government the responsibility of en.
forcing the laws. In tho future history
of our State, let us recognize aod respeit the fact
that all classes and raco distinctions before the
law are and shall remain abolished. Let us
honestly accord each cltir en, without any distinc
tion, tbe roll measure of bis rights, and equal
benefit and proteetlen of tbe law, to the end;tbat
all, under blcssingof God, may contribute to bring
about an era of good feeling, peace and pros
I parity.
Now tberifore, I, Francis T. NIcbolIi, Gover
nor of tbebtate of Louisiana, do Issue this, my
proclamation, enjoining upon all persons the
maintenance of peace, observance or law, and a
proper regard for the rightful persons, and I re
commend tbe cultivation of good feeling and a
spirit of harmony among alt classes.

Hi the 1 rcMtont!
Hamilton Fish, Hccrciarj ef Slate.
Every crls's In public affairs pate the leading
men of both parties to the test, and leaves them
la a new position before the country. The pres
ent Piesldential difficulty has been the severest
trla American statesmanship has baJ. And It
has had the good effect or bringing some men to
the front and making them conspicuous for real
patriotism and statesmanship. It was only nat
ural that the Democrats In Congress should feci
disappointed and angry at the decision of tho
Llectorat commission tney createa against a
powerful Republican opposition. The country
should look with a good deal of leniency on tho
Irritation and exasperation and even the fili
bustering of men who believed Mr. Tllden was
elected and that the ElcctoralCommlsslon would
pare t he way to that concl uslon. Jiut their course
has served to bring out Into greater prominence
the moderation, the ability, the patriotism, tbe
high mindedness of leading Democrats, who,
teeing they were defeated, counselled
a quiet and magnanimous submission to what
they regarded an injustice rather than create
disturbance or prolong the )rIod of uncertainty.
Among the men who deserve to be remembered
and with respect by tbe people of both parties, It
la only the simplest Justice to mention three or
four. Mr. Ahram H. Hewitt, or this elty. Is one
of them. He has shown himself a good leader,
an able and efficient representative, an active
Industrious, and thoroughly devoted psblio ser
vant AUh poor health, which often effects bis
temper and makes him Irarelble, he has labored
Incessantly to bring this trouble to a pacific and
satisfactory Issue; and bj rising superior to bis
parly and acting the part ol a statesman he has
incurred tho ill will of extreme partisans and
drawn down their abuse upon hlmtctf. His con.
duct during this emergency has shown the people
ol this city and the country that In him
they bai e a statesman who can be
counted on to sacrifice party and self to the pub
lie welfare when tbe occasion requires the sacri
fice, bleaker Randall Is a partisan Denucrat.
His associations hate been with that party, and
all his interests and ambitions as a public
man aro Identified vwlth It. Yet In this
difficult emergency he has distlngurshed him
self by the patriotic Imparllallt) or his course
and the vigor and ability with which ho has
checkmated the filibusters of his own party have
won the respect even or bis political opponents
Hohastbrown himself into the breach between
the two factions ol bis parly, and has sacrificed
his own laudable ambition to bs the speaker of
tbe next House to cited the legal and peaceablo
settlement of this difficulty. Mr Fernando Wood,
or this city has acted a truly honorable part In
this whole contest, Mr. Lamar, Mr. Hill, and
John Young llrown, to mention no others of the
southern delegation, havo shown that they
know how to subordinate party to country, and
bate set an example or devotion te public inter,
csts that theiropponcnts would do well to follow.
Senator Ilayard haa particularly distinguished
himself by bis conservative and conciliatory
course, and has raised himself In public estlma
tlon by the qualities be bus displsyed. It is a
matter for congratulation that, whllo some of tbe
Democratic leaders and Journals hate shown a
nllllngness to plunge the country Into untold
troubles to gain a party triumph, so many ablj
Democrats in Congress have risen above the
clamor or their party and proved themselves supe
rlorto.he Irritations and exasperations of tbe
hour. The cmntry will remember them with
irratrful respect and bato tenfold moro canfi
dene In tho parly thai follows their leadership

icstirlay,aon all ether occasions or grca
public interest, the Hart blicav stalked forth fa
the person of one orits stetf, to take notes from
the ccitre to the environs or the town, on tbe con
dition of people s feeling over the result of tho
great Presidential struggle
Tbe day was not the sunniest on record, fcr It
seemed as though Nature had contrived, with tbe
atcs, to make the 'occasion one of the deepest
solemnity, and to render tho bluencas of tbe dis
appointed ones dark and dismal
As tbe 'stall 'stalked along, he noticed ei res
slons sugscsllToofall the varieties or human In
spirations, some glad, some rleaied, somo
Indifferent, and others dejected, but with tbe ex
ception or the filibustering few, all unmistakable:
satisfied with the final result that had decides
the Presidency, aafl given peace and order to the)
country. The department clerks to a man,
grinned In ecstatic glee, the shop-keeper and bu
siness man walked more briskly, laughed more
heartily, and seemed happier without regard ta
tbe party prejudices ol his early education!
the statesman, the soldier, the divine, the ever
thing that is animate and human seemed eon
tented, and yet tl ere were those who wbtle they
breathed freer felt tbe lurking pangs ol disap
pointment, and deplored cot so much the defeat
(.t ell lien Samuel n theydespilred ol the fa tare
of tbe about to become defunct Democracy, la
all there seemed to be three elasses of thinkers
on the situation. 1 hose who as He publicans and
I atrlots rejoiced in the trluroj b of right ; those
who were sorry, and those who were ashamed.
The filibusters of the House were quiet and sub
dued, looking like so many wet curs, that In try
ing to stem tho torrent of public opinion had
been washed away Into the oblivion of shame.
The true eleuunt of the late Democracy seemed
like men born anew, and slcod ready to accept the
situation as a whole Lieeia11y Is this true ef
the feoutbern Hepesentetlve, who have s
strenuously fought the desperate and degener
ated filibustering minority.
The all absorbing topic with the Democratic
Congressmen seemed to be, who Is It among ns
that aspires to tbe Cabinet! and will a called
session or the neat Congress be advantageous to
the luture of the Democracy? Some Democrats ear
the idea of tbe appointment to a Cabinet position
of any Southern er who voted against Mr. Uayes,
would be political death to the Individual so ac
cepting and ruination to Mr. Hayes' popularity
with either party. Others denounce Ben, Hill
and It ernando Wood, and whisper queer things at
to their motives Intbereeent con filet of opinion.
But sslde from all this, there is one thine
at least, esltlre, and that Is, the uncertain fu
ture of tbe Democraey. Already their party
leaders are conniving tegether over tbe best
thing to be done, and among other plans, It Is sug
gested that an extra session of Congress might
tend greatly towards uniting tbe disrupted part
and make Its policy and future a thing certain.
This bowerer Is only the Idea with that class In th
House, who, while they did not dare openly es
pouse the Infamous cause of the filibusters, yet
secretly and sincerely sympathised with them,
and would to-day fondly take them baek to the)
folds or parly comfort And yet there)
Is another, and more pewerfal ele
ment at work atroogly repelling;
every attempt ofthete northern partisan leaders
towards placing them where they most sink or
swim with the Democraey. A prominent South
ern Democrat remarked yesterday, -We have
now got where we can act as a Soutbesa party,
independent or old political affiliations, and In
tend to stand where we are until we see cur way
clear." In other words, they would join bands
with any party that might oiler them peace, local
government and increased domestic facilities
While the Democrats are desirous of a
called session of Congress, still they are
not willing to take upon themselves
the responsibility ef directly defeating tbe regu
lar appropriation bills, or course tbe Republi
cans are desirous ofpassing all the bills, and are
averse to a called session at present, as any extra
legislation might somewhat embarrass tbe In
coming President. The Democrats kaow this,
and think It better to organise as soon as possible,
fearing lest, by Mr. Hayes conservative policy,
tbe entire South will become united In their sup
port of his administration.
The two Houses met at the usual hoar yester
da), and the routine or legislative business re
sumed. The flags that were Turled in tbe morn
log, again flaunted in the brccie, andthebusl.
ness of Congress proceeded.
Much anxiety was experienced In both Houses
over the aiproprlatlon bills, as tbe time was
short, and tbe bills far behind. Mr. llolmaa
thinks the bills can all be passed in time If tbe
Sundry Civil bill is not too .heavily loaded with
amendments so as to make it objectionable. Mr.
bterens, the experienced Clerk to tho Commit
tee en Appropriations says he deems It extremely
doubtful that the bills can all be passed. The
general opinion, however. Is that all will go
through provided there are not too many "axes
to be ground I y indit .dual members.
