President Hayes wu met at Chattanooga by tie members of the reception commit toe, and arrived here on a special train at 11.30 a. m. They were received at the onter depot by Mayor Carpenter and rcres Dickinson, chair man of the committee of reception, and enter ing carriages were driven to the Lamar house, eacorted by the Knoivltle rifles, Capt. Alllaon, and ft cominy of University cadets, com manded by Lieut Baxter, U. 8. A. The President occupied an open phaeton, drawn by fonr milk white bones, ln,whlch were seated Mayor Carpenter, Teres Dickinson and Rev. Dr. Humes. The other members of the suite followed In carriage. The streets were densely Jammed with people eager to obtain a light of the Chief Magistrate, and the shouts of welcome were loud and prolonged. As the procession formed, the University battery on Temperance hill rang out a, welcome In thun der tones. The march was a perfect oration, and It wm with difficulty that the police could keep the way clear for the procession to pass, so eagerly did the surging multitude press forward to the carriages. Tho distinguished visitors alighted at the ladles' entrance to the hotel and pro ceeded thence to the platform In front where an address of welcome was delivered oy Rev. Thomas YY Homes. President Hayes said In reply! Ut friends of Knoxvllla and East Tennessee. 1 congratulate you on this beautiful day, contrast in.

You are entirely right In Intimating that the vast numbers that wt see around us sro united men of all political parties, and that the first point In the welcome Is that It Is respect for the oOtco Which, for the tlmo llng, It Is my fortune to oc cupy. This multitude have assembled to show re nted for the office or Ch ef Msststrato or tlio coun try, and to exhibit their patriotism to the nation, to the laws and the Conititutlon.

Mt frieiidii, 1 hsve boen during Uio last two weeks so frequently called upon In this general discus sion, without special preparation, that I cannot but and 1 find tlo feelings and personal opinions of we poopie everywnera to similar upon una midjcci, that there Is no occasion fur chango of topics, even If It w era posslb'e to do so. When a committee romes to me of worklngmcit I am glad to receive them. Jf a committee of colored men, I have the tame feelings for them. If Democrats, 1 gtve the tamo attention to them, and with Republicans it Is the same with me. I believe tho (Inrcnimcntof tbe United Stales ought to regard ailxotlie rights and liitercstsofaU sections of the country, and that the State Government, as well as the National Government, should regard alike equally the right and Interest of all races of men. Now, again, upon this there is no longer any rause of prepara tion. Washington announced thst the Constltu tlon made ns one pcuple. Mr. W cbMer, coining after, said, "We have one Constitution, we have one Datlun, we have one destiny, Let us, my friends, bear lu mind these great ideas. We may scparato from each other as to cur rency, m to tariff, as to Internal Improvement, but. my friends, we murt all agree with Jacksonthat the Union must and shall be pro-erred. We can look Into the faces of this audience andste.no doubt, tho faces of soldiers of Federal and of tho Confederate armies. Now wu understand each other. Wo have been Introduced to cut h other. We are acquainted. We have met before. (I-auch ter And as I demand rtspoct for the man I found righting against mo for my rnnv lotions, I yield the same meanure of resitect to him who fought for his convictions. I want the people of all sections to )e better acquainted I want that the people of all sections should be Introduced to laeh other. Not exactly as the soldiers hare been, but to be friends, as the soldiers here aro frkndx ; and one of the great objects of this hour Is to encourage Intercourse Intercourse between different sections of tho cuun try. We wont you In New England and Ohio and w York. 1 want the men of Tcune-veo to be as much at homo on the soil of Vermont as In any tttate Of tho Houth. I want the people of Ohio to feel as much at homo In the Fouth on In any Suite north of the Ohio rixer, to bo united in dutvand united as citizens of different settloiis, then shall we be a happier people to tho end of our caieer. At the conclusion of tho speeches a public reception was held In the hotel parlors, fatting until 2 o clock, when the President and party visited the opera-house, where tho pupils of the city schools were assembled.
