By the President. i Wu. II. Seward, Secretary of State. Army of the Potomac New York, March 5. The Herald's Army of4tlie Potomac special of the 3d, says: On the night previous a heavy rain set in, making the roads impassable. On the 2d Col. Mulford exohanged fifteen kundred prisoners under the usual for malities. Gen. Singleton was expected to return from Richmond yesterday. i. Every fresh batch of rebel deserters that come in our lines reiterate the state dent made by previous ones, that the rebels are preparing to evacuate both Richmond and Petersburgh.

Deserters continue ft come in oun lines in largt numbers, j66 arrived to-day, nearly all bringing 4her guns and equipments, for which ithe-v 4 to be paid. The number of musteti recieved since Febuary 22d is 20, all iu good order. In addition to ihe usual stories told by tbes men, they .af flat two -companies from ech , reg ianwiof faeiid brides hare beende-i l . ' 1 1 T tailed Iwa the army defending Petors lurg,pd sent to hunt deserters, thous ands jf whom are said be scattered , over tin' country, endeavoring ! to find their tomes. 'This is particularly with the North and South Carolinia troops, who," sick and tired of the contest, are anxious to join their families, now in our lines, These men are principally veterans of three and four years service, many ol themjare those lately ' exohanged; all of them being refused furbughs and not paid for a long time, nor any prospect of getting any soon they took French leave. A few days ago a Sergeant was sent out in charge of a team and six men to get wood. The men unarmed; the Ser geant had a revolver and sword. After getting outside the lines the mules appar ently ran away; but the Sergeant guided them straight in our lines, and the whole party arrivsd safely. They race ved for the mules seven hundred dollars, which was divided equally, . .... , The cheering of the rebels Wcdneday evening was on account of their receiving a radon of whisky, which seems to be quite a rarity in thoir Commissary De partment. Anthony Raymond, of Co. B, and Newel J. Engle, of Co. H of the fltb New York Volunteers, were shot to-day for attempting to desert to the ensmy. Five regiments of the 1st division of the 2d corps, to which the criminals belonged were assembled to witness the execution. The 91st New York Volunteers, a vet eran regiment, arrived at the front to day' and were assigned to the 3d division of the 5th corpu. There are about 600 men. Anticipated Evacuation of Richmond Rumored Abandonment of Petersburg. New York, March. 1. The World's Army of the Potomao special says there is every indication of a panio in Rich mond. Old Senators and members of the House are fleeing, until there is barely a quorum in Congress to transact business. This has been hushed Up, but now the Richmond papers openly allude to the fact, and call on military authorities to bring the fugitives back by force. Roger A. Fryor and Gen. Singleton were to pass tip the James on Tuesday, P. M., by flag of truce in company with Mrs. Gen. Helm and Mrs. Major Pratt,! wives of rebel officers. A very important movement is now making by Gen. Lee' belie ved to he the evacuation of Richmond. The Tribune's Washington special says letter from the Army of the James gives currency to the report brought in by deserters that Petersburg is evacuated and the fortifications aronnd the city, looking to its abandonment. Important Met tape of Gov. Bf ownStrong Anti Confederate Ground Taken. New York, Maroh 2. The message of Got. Brown, of Georgia, is published. He defends the State against newspaper attacks, of allowing Sherman to march usmoiestea tnrougti the state, saying she was abandoned to her fate, and neg lected by military authorities. He recommends the establishment of a military system, to be in no case turned over to the Confederate Governmnt. Al. so, the impressment of provisions from persons who wont soil their supplies to indigent families of soldiers. . He recommends a law to punish rob bery with death, and opposes arming the slaves. He complains of assumption on the part of the Confederate Congress, in levying disproportionate taxation, and charges upon it many abuses. He charges all disasters upon the gen eral ship of Jeff. Davis, and says the Government is a military despotism, drifting into anarchy, and if persisted in must terminate in reconstruction, with or without subjugation. He opposes conscription and urges requisitions upon the States for troops; he also urges the taking from Davis his power as Com mander-in-chief, and calls for a conven tion to amend the Constitution. Reported Treachery of the Citizen of Cohlmbia--Our Troop Fired upon From the Houses Sherman Order the Place to be Burned Augusta taid to it captured Change of Sher man Water Halt. New York,' March 2. The World has the following additional particulars eon cerning the reported burning of Colum bia: , Wbon the Arago appeared off Charleston Bar, a dispatch boat mef her with important pew, which, if true, il lustrates' unparalleled - rebel treachery. The officer who brought the intelligence, staled that son After a- torps of Sher man's troops had captured Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, the rebel citi sens there endeavored in- every possible manner to harass our troops. The corps which left to join in Sliermaa's further advance, and was succeeded by soother. Gen. Slocum's. While the laitor corps i was quietly marching through the prin cipal streets to their temporary barracks, a number of oittosns poured a deadly fire upon them from the windows and roofs of the houses tbey occupied. Insurrection was beginning to spread, when our troops retired a short distanoe, and subsequently fired the city, which is now in ashes.- No further particulars were received. . , The same messenger from Charleston also announoed that news had just been received there that Gen. Sherman had marched in force on Augusta, and that the enemy at onoe evacuated the city. ., It was also stated that a large amount of rebel property had been captured, and that Slier mm, after leaving sufficient force to garrison the city, proceeded on his way northward. H , The announcement was also made that Sherman was probably proceeding to the cities of Florence and Charlotte in force, and that he had captured a large quantity of supplies on the route of his march. The Herald's correspondent says Col umbia was burned by order of Sherman, as punishment for citizens firing upon our troops when the eity was in our pos session. The Herald's Charleston dispatch siys: Hundreds of rebel deserters are coming in. They report Hardee's force had been intercepted by Sherman's troops, All of Sherman's supply vessels had been ordered from Hilton Head to some other point. The Inauguration. WsHiNOttw, March 4. President Lincoln Was inaugurated to-day at 12 M. The weath er was clear and beautiful, but on aocount of tho recent rain, theslrecU wcro filled with mud, Despito this fact, the crowd Hint assembled wns exceedingly largo, and thousands proceeded to the Capitol to witness the inauguration seromo' nies. The procession moved from Sixteenth street and Pennsylvania Avohue ut 11 o'clock. President Lincoln liBd been at tho Capitol all day; and consequently did not accompany tho procession to the scene of the cormonios. Two regiments of the paroled corps, a squad ron of cavalry, a battery of artillery, and four companies of colored troops, forinod tho military escorts; the Mayor and Councilmen of Washing ton, tho Coiuicilmon from Baltimore, tho fire men of this city, and tho firemen from Balti more, the Good Will, fVanldin and Persevcr onca Companies, each company drawing its own engine along, wore also in the prooession Among the benevolent societies present were Lodges of Odd Fellows and Masons, including A colored Lodee of tho latter fraternity. The public and principal privoto buildings ; on Pennsylvania Avenue wero Baily. decorated with flags, and every window was thronged with faces to oatch a glimpso of tho President elect. , The oath to protoot and maintain the Cori stitutioh of the United States was administered by Chief Justice Chase on tho Eastern Portico, in ths presence of thousands, who WitmscU the Interesting ceremony while standing knee- deep in the mod. The inaugural was then read. ttfE ttlFAlDENT'8 IMACGURAI,. FstLOW Countrymen! At this second ap pearing to take the oath of tho Prcuidontinl office, there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at first. Then, a state mcnt, somewhat ifl detail, of a course to be pur sued,- seemed fitting and ptfoper. ' Now, at the expiration of lour years, during which public declarations have been constant ly called forth on every point and phase of the groat contort Which still absorbs fho( attention and engrosses the' energies of the Nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, uxm which ttti else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably Satisfactory and encouraging td all. With high hopes for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured. On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago all thoughts were anxious ly direetod toon impending civil war; all dreaded it: all sought to avoid it. hi to tho inffagnral address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgents were rn the city seeking to destroy it without war seeking to dissolve the Union and divide tho effects by negotiations. Both parties deprecated war, but oneoftlrenV wduld finite Waf rather' than let the nation survieo, and tho other would accept' war rather than lot it perish, and tire war camel One-Eighth of' the whole- population were colored slaves, not distributed generally ovef the Union, but localised in the southern part of it. These, slaves constituted a poouliar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest Wag somehow the causes of tho war. To strengthen, perpetuate and extend this interest wns the object for which tho the insurgents would rend tho Union by war, while the Gov ernment claimed no right to do more than re triet the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for tho war the magnitudo or the duration which ft, has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the eonfloct might cease, even before the conflict itself might ease. Eaeh looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read tho same Bible and pray to tho saints God, and" each invokes His aid against the other. ' ' It may seem- strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other mca'n faces, but let us judge not leat we be judged. Tho prayers of both should not be anrtrerd. ' That of neither has been answered fully. Tte Almighty has his own purposes. Woe wotoUia world because of its offences, for it ntusf need lie that offenses eome; but wee un to the man by whom the offense Cometh. If We imaTA snppoM that Awejiian slavery is une i'fUi.o Olfi-jut tflrich, t-ajfc I'rovideaiM of God, must needs come, but winch, having con tinued through His appointed time,. He now wills to remove, and then he gives to both North ann South this terrible war as tho woe due to those by whortt the offense chines, shall we discern that there Is any departure from those divine attribute Which the believers in a living God always ascribe to him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away ; yet, if God Wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall bosnnk.and until every drop of blood drawn with tho liijh shall bo paid by another drawn with the sword, was said three thotiBarid years ago, so still it must bo said that the judgements of tho Lord are true and rightotis, although with malice toward none, with charity for all) with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see tho right. lot us strive to finish tho work. Wo are to bind up the nation's wounds and oaje for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and for his orphans, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and 'asting peace among ourselves, and with all nations. A national salute WaB fired. The procession then again moved up Penn sylvania avenue, the President being conveyed in an open barouche, and seated with him were his son and Senator Foster of the Committee of Arrangements. The President being escorted to tho White House, after whieh tho procession scperated. Everything passed off in the most quiet and orderly manner, and although thou sands participated In the cere monies, not an accident occurcd to mar the pleasures of the day. KB" The Constitutional Amendment Act; for the abolition of slavery was discussed bn Wed nesday in the New Jersy Legislature, and de feated bv a vote of 30 yens to 30 1inrs, a two- thirds majority being' necessary.
