I was always a lucky fellow, aud the
most lortuuate thing that ever happened
to nie was being boru a Smith. Listen.
Three 3 ears ago 1 had just been jiked,
aud was out of money. That doseu't
souud lucky, but it was the prelude of
the bestof luck. I concluded to go into
the country;- down at "Plymouth, to my
uncle's house partly that the mutmurs
uf the sea might sooth my inward per
turbation partly to save a month's board.
I stepped ou board the early dnvn
train. It was full of silly six o'clock
passcngets, mostly men. Tho sun was
fchiniug on the water, but the fog was
hugging the banks, and clinging to the
burnished surface of the tide. L suppose
a poet could have made something pretty
out of the sight, but 1 ot:Iy wrapped my
self closer in my overcoat, and looked at
it suikiby. After a while 1 got to listen
ing to two men who sat behind me.
"A pretty girl with a fortune isn't til
ways to be had for the asking."
"Oh, but the girl isn't asked, I take it.
It's all arranged by her aunts, and she'll
acquiesce. She's shining pretty, but a
" mere child- not sixteen, I believe.
They had another fellow booked for
her, but he died down in New Orleans of
the yeliow fever, last fall'
"Aud she's never teen this Smith ?"
"No, - nor they either. The aunts
plotted with Mr. Dunbar, the guardian,
anl he picked Smith up for them, open J.
a correspondence, and got Rose to write
a letter or two. Smith professes to be
in love with her letters, and her picture
but, of course, it's the money forty
thousand, if she marries before she's sev
enteen." "If the girl amounts to anything, it's
a deuced shame !"
'She does amount to something. She
.has the making of a splendid woman in
her: but nobody knows it or cares.
They are bent only on saving the money
for her. If she" forfeits it, it goes to
some pet charity of her crazy old grand
father's. He -was always an old tyrant,
and excentric as the devil
You know Smith ?"
'Only by sight, but I know a chum of
his, JJurton, and got the story, with a
cony of the girl's letter. I've seen her
many a time down cn the shore, always
with her dragon aunts.
"Where's the letter ?"
"I've got it here in my wallett. Now
you know, the right sort of a man won't
, have his girl s letters hawked about
among bis associates. lie let Burton
take this copy, and Burton gave it to me.
Let mo see this is it. Listen.
"Dear Ma. Smith : My aunts wish
- roe to reply to your kind letter. I do
not know what to say. I am not accus
tomed to writing to gentlemen; but I
must tell you that I . was sorry to have
aunt Sophy send you that picture of me;
I am not near so pretty ; it flatters me
very much. You are so handsome that
you will want a handsome wife; so I
"don't think you ought to be deceived. I

in a large city, and aunt Sophy says you
would do everything to suit me.

I will do whatever you want me to.

'"Ladies very gay this inoruin'."
j If 1113- stately aunt and cousin were
j gay. it was certainly worth remarking; so
I laughed a little, and Sambo chuckled
again, and jumped upon ins seat.
We rattled through the streets, under
an arch, up an avenue. Things began
to look strange.
"Where arewe ?" I asked, as Sambo
opened the carriage-door. "Do they

At the same moryent an elderly gen

"How long have they lived here?"
"Don't know, sir. I've only been
here a day or two. There, sir ; do you
want anything more ?"
No; Iwas arrayed in my best apparel,
and looked well, though my whiskers,
instead of being trimmed, were of early
growth, and had never been of any
length. I was met at the foot of the
stairs by the irrepressible Mr. Dunbar.
"It's all fixed," said he. "You'll be
married at once. I had different ar
rangements made ; was going to give
you and Rose a chance to get a little
better acquainted ; but the railroad de

He led me into a long reception room.
Some ladies shook hands with me. A tiny,
golden-haired creature was put by my
side. The clergyman married us. Then
there was a chatter of congratulation.
One woman, with a horrid scarlet head
dress, put her hand ou my arm and
drew me aside.
"What arrangements have you made
for the trip?" asked she.
"None," I answered truthfully.
"But you are going to New York for

I thought New York as good a place
to go to as any, if I was expected to go

sudden possession of that really uncom
mon J luxury denominated idleuess, and
being remarkably homesick withal, I
have; concluded to while away a few mo
ments by jotting down some items for
our "home' hebdomadal."
Bat one- little incident, worthy of note,
has Lappeued in my journeying thus
far. J Wo that is a half-score of other
ladies and myself were busy n the
cabin of tho Fannta on the 3d irist., en
gaged in small talk, tatting, reading and
crochet, when a terrific screech and sud
den lurch of the steamer, followed by an
instant stopping of the machinery aud
a dozen shrill whistles of distress, admon
ished us that something had happened.
The disabled steamer limped towards the
river bank; the whistle continued its
gathered hats, shawls and knap sacks in
a twinkling, scattered crochet and talking
in utter disregard of the rights of re
spective owners and were marching in a
body to the vessel's bow, when some
good natured masculine condescended to
inform us that "uothius had hannened
but the blowing off of a cylinder-head
uud we need not go ashore."
Color returned to the blank visages of
our party, confidence aud courage were
restored, and we marched back to the
cabin where the ludicrous part of our
performance suddenly became manifest.
Each lady had siezed her neighbor's
wrappings, or part3 of them in her flight,
aud many jokes did we perpetrate over
the appropriations" we had beaten the
Legislature in making.
The Fannie panted on the water like
a wounded doe ; the Echo, but a-half
mile: distant at tho time of the accident,
did not hear her signal of distress, and
she, !(tlie Fannie might have been there
still, if it hadn't been for the "Oregon
That "irrepressible body," (what re
mains of it), had chartered the steamer
Dayton for a trip to the treasure vaults
of the Capitol, and the little creature
was ; panting on its watery way all un
conscious of the dignity of its burden,
when it suddenly spied its wounded sis
ter and came snorting to the rescue.
The "Legislature" had to make the
bestj of it, as Capt. Apperson and Jerome
decided that we seaward bound excur
sionists must go to the "metropolis."
So we gathered our baggage, went on
board the Dayton, and with the Legis
lature looking very much "down in the
mouth" we started down tho river.
Our friend Upton, of the Signal, was on
board. His supply of "pictures" was
exhausted, but in response to the impor
tunities of your correspondent in behalf
or herseli and a number of anxious com
panions, graciously promised to send a
number of copies to my address when a
new edition comes out. The Southern
Methodists have "reconstructed him"
and his. improvement in appearance is
remarkable. If politics- and whisky do
not get the better of him before the Leg
islature gets tired of "adjourning from
day to day," I shall be hippily disap
pointed. Arrived at Portland yesterday In
auguration day. Flags up everywhere.
Business dull. Chinamen thick as anta
in a sandhill. Am constrained to relate
an anecdote. A worthy and influential
citizen of Portland had a large stock of
cord-wood lying in close proximity to
his woodshed. Divers and sundry per
sons who "work for their living," had
their hungry eyes upon tho "job" of saw
ing and splitting said wood. One "anti
Chinaman, constitutional Democrat," ac
costed the owner with a request that the
job be given to himself in order that a
"poor white man might have a chance."
A bargain was made; the "poor white
man" undertook the job, and when the
owner of the wood came homo to dinner,
he found the poor white Democrat en
gaged in complacently viewing the rapid
movement of a-half dozen Chinamen,
whom he had hired to do the work at
half price. Comment is unnecessary.

INAUGURATION DAY AND CEREMONIES.
Washington, March -1th. The day
dawned rainy. The route of procession
was soon thronged. Grant arrived at
headquarters at 9 o'clock, aud congratu
latory dispatches from members of the
Berlin Exchange were handed him.
Colfax at rived at headquarters at 10 A:
M. aud went to Grant's oSee. The
troops and military oigauizations formed,
and (Jraut entered the carriage-'-with
ll:wlings.' Colfax was in the tie's t 'ur'
riage with Admiral Bailey. "
The procession started, the band play
ing "Hail to the Chief." The troops were
drawn up along the square, and ' pre
sented arms" as the carriage of tho
President elect passed, amidst cheers
and enthusiasm. Eight grand divisions
were in tho procession : First, regulars
under General Cadwalader, escorting the
Presideut elect ; second, volunteers, in
cluding the colored organizations ; civil
officers of the Government, foreign Min
isters, Presidential electors, officers of
the Army and Navy", marines, authorities
of Washington, Georgetown and other
places, Republican organizations, sold
iers, sailors and Union fire department.
The head of tho procession reached the
Capitol, when Grant entered to take the
oath and deliver the inaugural. The
crowd in the front was the greatest ever
before witnessed here. The procession
was an hour in passing a given point.
The diplomatic corps, and other guests
arrived. Tho diplomats came in a body
and attracted attention by the' splendor
of their uniforms and their dignified
bearing. The Miuisters of foreign na
tions were all present except Baron Ger
olt, of Prussia, who was detained by sick
ness. Among those particularly noticed,
were Thornton of England, Bertherny
of the French legation,! Cerenta ot the
Italian, and Blaque Bey, tho Turkish
Minister. Tho Presideut and Vice
President entered by a side door, arm in
arm, with Cragin and McCreery, the com
mittee to escort them to the chamber.
Before they reached the space in front of
the Chair, the door of the main entrance
opened and the Justices of the Supreme
Court, headed by Chief Justice Chase,
and clad in their robes of office, entered
aud took their scats in front of the ros
trum. Grant was conducted to a chair
iu frout of the Clerk's desk, facing the
audience. He exhibited his usual self
possession. A seat to the left of Grant
was in readiness for Johnson, but was
not occupied, lhe latter was not at the
Capitol this morning, but signed bills at
the "White House."
The presiding officer aunounced his
readiness for the inauguration. Vice
President Colfax advanced, and the oath
was administered to him by tho presiding
officer. Colfax delivered an address, at
the conclusion of which tho Senators
elect came forward as their names were
called and took the oath, which was ad
ministered by Colfax. The organiza
tion of the Senate being completed, the
procession was formed and the occupants
of the floor proceeded to the east portico
to witness the ceremonies of inaugura
tion. : The platform was decorated with
evergreens the pillars wreathed with
flags, ard an immense crowd was in front
with enthusiasm, music,, cannon, etc.
Near Grant sat Dent, Sharp and Casey.
Chief Justice Chase administered the
oath, and Grant advanced and delivered
his inaugural, after which he entered a
carriago and proceeded to the White
House. The Senators returned to. their
ch ambers ond resumed the session, which
was soon adjourned to twelve o'clock to
morrow, r .
president grant's inaugural.
Citizens of the United State3 :
Your suffrages having elevated me to the
office of President of the United States. I
have, in conformity with the Constitu
tion of our country, taken the oath of of
fice prescribed therein. I have taken
this oath without mental reservation, and
with the determination to do tho best of
my ability all that it requires of mo.
The responsibilities of the position I foci,
but accept them without fear. The of
fice has come to me unsought. I com
mence its duties untrammelled. I bring
to it a conscientious desire and deter
mination to fill it to the best of my abili
ty and to tho satisfaction of the people.
On all leading questions agitating the
public mind, I will express my views to
Congress and urgesfchem according to my
judgement, and when I think it advis
able, I will always exercise the constitu
tional privilege of interposing a veto to
defeat measures which I oppose ; but all
lavs will be faithfully executed whether
they meet my approval or not. I shall
on all subjects have a policy to recom
menof, but none to enforce against the
will of the people. The laws are to gov
ern all alike, those opposed to them as
well as those who favor them. I know ;
of no method to secure the. repeal of bad
laws so effective as their stringent execu- ;
tion.- .. . , ;yi -: ' "1-, - -: ' i- ',E7 .' 1 V.' i ' '
. The country having jst emerged from
a great rebellion, many: questions' will
come before it for settlement in' the next
four years which tho preceding admin-,
istrations have never had to deal with.
In meeting them, it is des:rable that they
should be approached calmly, without
prejudice to State or bcctional pride, re
membering that the greatest good to the
greatest numbsr is lhe object to bo at
tained. This require!" the security of
person, property, aud for religious and
political opinions i:i every "part of our
common eoun.try, without regard to lo
caiity or prejudice. Laws to secure
theso will receive my be.t efforts for their
A great debt has been contracted in se
curing for us and o.ur posterity the Union.
The payment of this, principal and
j interest, us well as the return to a specie
oasis as soon as it can De accomplished
without material detriment to the debtor
class or tho couutry at large, must be
provided for. To protect the national
honor every dollar of the Government in
debtedness should be paid in gold, un
less otherwise expressed or stipulated in
the contracts. Let it be understood that
no repudiator of a farthiug of our public
debt will be trusted iu a public place,
ana it will go tar towards strengthening
a credit which ought to be the best "in
the world, and Will ultimately enable ua
to replace the debt with bouds bearing
less interest than we now pay. To this
should be added a faithful collection of
the Revenue ; a strict accountably to the
Treasury for every dollar collected, and
tho greatest practicable retrenchment in
expenditure in every department of the
Government. When we compare the
paying capacity of the country now, with
the States still in poverty from the ef
fects of tho war, but soon to emergo, 1
trust,into greater prosperity than ever be
fore, with its paying capacity twenty-five
years ago, and to calculate what it" will
be twenty-five years heuc-e, who can
doubt the feasibility of paying every dol
lar, then with more ease than we now
pay for useless luxuries? Why it looks
as though Providence has bestowed upon
us a strong-box of the precious metal
locked up in the sterile mountains of the
far West, which we are now forging the
key to unlock to meet the very contin
gency that is now upon us. Ultimately
it may be necessary that the Genera!
Government should give its aid . to secure
this access, but that should only be when
a dollar of obligation to pay secures pre
cisely the same as a dollar to us now,
and not before. While tho question of spo
cie payment is iu abeyance, the prudeut
busiuess man is careful about contracting
debts payable in the distant future. The
nation should follow the same rule. Pros
trato commerce is to be rebuilt and all
industries encouraged. Tht young men
of the country who, from their age, must
bo its rulers twenty-five-years hence,
have a peculiar interest in maintaining
the national honoi. A moment's reflec
tion as to what will be our commanding
influence among the nations of the earth
in their day, if they are only true: to
themselves, should inspire thoai with? na
tional pride. All divisions geographi
cal, political and religious concur in
this common sentiment. '
How the public debt is to be paid, or
specie payment resumed, is not so im
portant as that a plan should be adopted
and acquiesced in. A united determina
tion to do it is worth more than divided
counsels upon tho method of doing.
Legislation upon this subject may not be
necessary now or even advisable, but it
will be when the civil law is more fully
restored in all parts of the country and
trade resumes its wonted channel. It
will be my endeavor to execute all laws
iu good faith, collect all revenues as
sessed, and to have them properly ac
counted for and economically disbursed.
It will be for me, to the best of my abili
ty, to appoint to office those only who
will carry out this design.
In regard to foreign policy, I would
deal with nations as equitably as the law
requires individuals to deal with each
other, and I would protect every law
abiding citizen whether of native or - of
foreign birth, wherever his rights are
jeopardized or the flag of our country
floats. . I would respect the rights of all
nations, demanding equal respect for our
own. If others depart from this rule in
tbeir dealings with us, we may be com
pelled to follow their precedents. ;
The proper treatment of the 'original
Occupants of this land4 the Indians
are deserving of care and equal study.
I will favor any course towards them
which tends to their civilisation, Christ
ianity and ultimate citizenship.
The question of suffrage is one which
is likely to agitate the public so long as
a portion of the citizens of the nation aro
excluded from its privilege in any State.
It seems to me very desirable that ' this
question should .' be settled now. I en
tertain the hope,' and express the desire,
it may be by the i" Ratification of the fif
teenth article of tho amendment to "i the
Constitution. f t' ? - , t
In conclusion; I ask patienco and for
bearance of one towards another through
out the land, and a determined effort on
the part of every citisen to do his share
towards cementing :'i happy nuioa ; and I
ask the prayeni of the 'nation t Almighty
God in behalf of this consummation.

Among the appropriations asked of
Congress the Committee finds one provi
ding for paying the "Superintendent ot
the Crypt." As nobody was aware that
there was such a thing as a "crypt" con
nected with the Government, still leas
that it had or needed a Superintendent,
inquiry was made, and it was found that
the appropriation had been regularly
made for the la&t fifty years. . . Further
investigation showed that, soon' after
Gen. Washington - died,-Congress provi
ded for the construction of a vault under
the Capitol, to be called the Crypt in
which his remains were to be deposited,.
A light was to be kept burning near it.
and a superintendent was appointed to
