Called to the duties of this treat trust I proceed in compliance with usuaue to an nounce sonio of the leadine Drincinles on the subjects that now chiefly engage the public attention, by which it is my duty to be guided in the discharge ot those duties. I shall not undertake to lay down irrevoca ble pi inciples or measures of administra tion but rather to speak of the motives which should animate us and to suggest certain important ends to be attained in ac cordance with our institutions and essential to the welfare of our country. At the outset ot the discussions which preceeded the recent presidential election it seemed to me fitting that I should fully make known my sentiments m regard to several of the questions which then appeared to demand the considera tion of the country. Following the ex ample and in part adopting the language of one ot my predecessors, I wish now, when every motive for misrepresentation has passed away, to repeat what was said before election, trusting that my coun ry men will candidly weigh it and understand that they will feel assured that the senti ments declared in accepting the nomination lor presidency will be the standard ot my conduct in the path beiore me; charged a 1 now am with the grave and difficult task of carrying them out in practical adminis tration of government so far as depends on constitution and laws in the chiet ex ecutive of the nation the permanent pacification of the country upon such principles and by such measures as will secure complete protection of all its citi zens in the tree enjoyment of all their constitutional rights is now the one subject in our public affairs which all thoughtful and patriotic citizens regard as of supreme importance. Many of the calamitous . fleets ot the tremendous revolution which has passed over the southern states still remain, the umecsurable benefits ot which will surely follow sooner or Liter the hearty and generous acceptance of the legitimate results of that revolution which have uot yet been real ized. Difficult and embarrast-iug questious niett us at the threshold of this subject. The people of those states are still im poverished and the inestimable blessing of wise, honest and peacetul lucal scif-govern-tueut is not fully enjoyed. Whatever dif" fercuces of opinion may excite as to the cause of this condition ot is clear that in the progress of events the time has come when such governments is an imperative necessity, required by all (he various interests, public and private, ol thiise slates. But it must not be forgot- lan that nnlv n bil fnvrnmnn tuKinVi I t S 1)110 , lccufcnizes and uiaintaius inviolate the rights of all, is true self-goveanmenf. With respo'jtjiothe two distinct racus whose peculiar relation to eacii oincr nave brought upou us the deplorable com plica- ions and perplexities which exist in these states, it must be a government which guards the interests of both races carefully aud equally; it must be a government which submits loyally and heartily to the constitution and laws-'the laws of the nation and the laws of the stato themselves, accepiing aud obeying faithfully the whole constitutiviu as it is. Resting upon this fure and substantial foundation, the super structure of beneficient local governments i.-t. 1 - i .

Tis question in which every citizen of na tiou is deeply interested and wkh respect to which wc ought not to be in partisan sense, either Republicans or Democrats, but, tellow citizens aud lellow-men to whom interests of common country and common huciat'ity are dear the sweeping revolution ot entire labor system of large portions of our country and the advance of four mil lions of people from a coudition of servi tude to that of citizenship upon an equal footing with their former masters, could not occur without presenting problems of graye scutioieut to be djalt with by eman cipated races by their masters and by the general government. The author of the act ot emancipation thought thai it was a wise, just aud providential act fraught with good for all concerned, and it is now generally cjnceded.throughout the country that a moral obligation lests upon the na tional government to employ its constitu tional power and influence to establish the rights of a people it has emancipated and to protect them in the enjoyment ot those rights when they are infringed or assailed. t is also generally admitted that the evils which afflict the southern states can only be removed or remedied by the united and harmonious efforts of both races, actuated by motives of mutual sympathy and re- ard, aud while in duty bound and fully determined to protect the rights of all by every constitutional means at the disposal of my administration, 1 am sincerely anxious to use every legimato influence in favor ot honest and efficient local government as tho true re source of those states tor the promotion of contentment and prosperity to their citi zens. In the effort 1 shall mako to ac compliah this purpose I ask the cordial cooperation of all who cherish an interest weltare 01 tne couuiry, trusting tices of the founders of the government. i'hey neither expected nor desired from public officers any partisan service; they meant that public officers should owe their whole service to government and to the people; they meant that the officer should be secured in his tenure as long as his personal character remained untarnished and the performance of bis duties satis factory; they held that appointments to office were not to be made uor expected merely as re wards for partisan services, that merely on the nomination of mem bers of congress as being entitled in any respect to tne control of such applicants. The fact that both political parties of the country iu declating their principles prior to election gave prominent place to the! subject of the reform of Our civil govern ment, recognizing and strongly ureiog its necessity iu terms almost identical in their specilic import with those I have here em ployed must be accepted as a conclusive sruuieot iu behalf of these measures; it must be regarded as the expression of tli voice and will of tho whole couutry upon this subject and both political parties aie virtually pledged to give it their universal; support. The president of the United States ol necessity owes hs election to office to the suffrage and zealous labors of a political party the members ot which cherish with ardor ai d regard as of essential impor tance the principles of their party organi zation ; but he should strive to be always mindful of the tact that he serves his par ty btst who servos bis couutry best.
