Tbe President elect was staying al the Exchange Hotel, and early in tbe forenoon of the 18'h he was waited upon by the delegated authorities, and at twelve o'clock, under a grand salvo of artillery, tbe procession began to move towards the Capitol in tbe following order: Music.

A platform was erected in front of the portico of tbe Capitol, on which the Pres ident elect took bis position, attended by tbe Vice-President, members of Congress, the Governor of the State of Alabama, and the several committees. The whole surround ings were thronged by a vast and swaying crowd, who viewed tbe proceedings with mingled feelings of enthusiasm and awe. A perfect thunder ot cheers, repeated again and again, greeted the President, who acknowledged tbe recognition with much emotion. The solemn ceremony was com tueuced by an earnest, iiiipaaioned and comprehensive prayer from the Rev. Dr. M iiiily. Tim President then read his Inaug ural address, which was listened to with profound ntteniion, and the sentiments of which were rei-ponded to with enthusiasm and respect.

VICTOR I. AND VANQUISHED. BT IIESRY THURSTON PKCK. Through the crowded streets returning, at tbe ending of the day, Hastened one whom all saluted as he sped along hit ) ; In his eye a gleam of triumph, in his heart a joy sincere, And tbe voice of shouting thousands still resounding in bis ear, Passed he 'neatb a stately archway toward tho goal of his desire, Till be saw a woman's figure lolling idly by the fire. 'I have won!" be cried, exultant; "I have saved a cause from wreck, Crushed the rival that I dreaded, set my foot upon his ne:k! Now at last tbe way is open, now at last men call me great, I am leader of the leaders, I am master in the state!" Languidly she turned to listen, and decorous was her pretence, And her cold patrician features mirrored forth indifference. Men are always scheming, striving for some petty end," said she. Then, a little yawn suppressing: "What is all of this to me?" 11. Through the shadows of the evening, as tbey quenched the sun set elow, Came the other; facing homeward, with dejected step and slow, Wistful, peering through the darkness, till he saw, as oft before, Where a woman stood impatient at tbe threshold of the door. "1 have lost!" he faltered faintly. -All is over," with a groan; Then be paused and gazed expectant at tbe face beside his owo. Two soft eyes were turned upon bim with a woman's tenderness, Two while arms were flung about him with a passionate caress. And a voice of thrilling music to his mutely uttered plea Said, If only you are with me, what is all the rest to meP" III. All night long tbe people's leader sat in siience and alone, Dull of eye, with brain unthinking, for his heart was turned to stone; While the hours passed all unheeded till the hush of night had ceased And tbe haggard light returning flecked the melancholy east. But the other, the defeated, laughed a life of merriment, And he thrust bis cares behind him with an infinite content; Recking not of place and power and the smiles of those above, For bis darkness was illumined hy tbe radiance of love. Each had grasped tbe gift of fortune, each had counted up the cost, r And the vanished was the Victor, and the winner he that lost.
