declared honestly and squarely elected
to the Presidency and Vice Presidency
of the United States by the highest au

Nation rejoices to-day over the result.
"The threats of anarchy and blood, made
by Democratic politicians, to be brought
upon the country in the event that Til

Sustalled as President of the United
States, turned out to be as truthful as
"the many other charges and assertions
made by them during the campaign.
The inauguration ceremonies were pro

est show of disturbance. And to-day
we are prouder of the American Nation,

No country on the face of this green
earth ever passed through so long and
momentous a crisis as we have just
. witnessed on this continent, with such
peaceful results. All honor to this Na
tion ot Freemen ! Already we begin to
see and feel the effects of this peaceful
eolation of the Presidential question in
the revival of trade; financial matters
are rapidly a&uming a healthier condi
tion ; gold Is falling, and greenbacks
to-day are worth more in the markets
than silver coin, and we believe now
that return to specie payments will be
here,' will already have practically been
consamated, before the time set by law
has arrived. And all these blessings
have been secured by the election ot a
Republican President. Looking back
at the glorious record made by the
great Republican party during the past
sixteen years, the whole country rests
with implicit confidence in the belief
that this Nation, in the hands of this
great and glorious party of Union and
Progress, will go on increasing in pow
er, in wealth, in grandeur, and in every
element of true greatness and strength.
We bave confidence in the honesty,
ability and integrity of our new Presi
dent, and so long as lie honestly and
. conscientiously administers the affairs of
this Government, the greatest and most
powerful on this earth, so long is it the
bounden duty ot every American citizen
to give him his full and cheerful sup

as a Nation : let us drop the animosi
ties of the past bury the "political
hatchet" and each citizen putting his
shoulder to the wheel, aid in speeding
the car ot progress and honest reform in
its onward and upward flight, while
showing to the nations of the world

At 12:45 on Monday, Mr. Hayes, )
at the east tront of the capitol in Wash

mense concourse of jieople, delivered
his inaugural address. To be appreci
ated every one should read the address.
At its conclusion, the oath of office was

Following is the
Fellow Citizens: We have as
sembled to repeat the public ceremonies
begun by Washington and ol)?erved by
all ray predecessors, and now a lime
honored custom, which marks the com
mencement ot a new term of. the Presi
dential office. Called to the duties of
this great trust, I proceed in compliance
with this ucago to announce some ot the
leading principles on the subjects that
now chieily engage the public attention,
by winch it is my desire to be guided in
the discharge of" these duties. I shall
not undertake to lay down irrevocably
the principles or measures ot the admin
istration, but rather to speak of the
motives which should animate us, and
to suggest certain important ends to Iks
attained in accordance with our institu
tions, and essential to the welfare of our
At the outset of the discussions which
preceded the recent Presidential elec
tion, it seemed to be iitting that I should
fwllv make known my sentiments in re
gard to several of the important ques
tions which then appeared to demand
the consideration ot the country. Y ol
lowing the example and, in part, adopt
ing the language of one of my predeces
sors, I wish now, when everv motive
for misrepresentation has passed away,
to repeal what was said before election,
trusting that my countrymen will can
didly weigh and understand it ; that
they will teel assured that the senti
ments declared in accenting the norm
nation for the Presidency will be the
6tanuam ot my conduct in the path be
fore me. Charged as I now am witl
ihe grave and iliih'cult task of carrying
them out in the 1 residential admunstra
tion ot the Goverumr nt, so far as de
pends under the constitution and law,
on the chief executive of the. nation
the iiermaueut pacification of the coun
tryupon such principles and by such
measures as will secure the complete
protection of all its citizens, in the free
enjoyment ot all their constitutional
rights, is now the one subject in our
public ahairs wuich all thoughtful ami
patriotic citizens regard as ot supreme
importance. Many of the calamitous
effects ot the tremendous revolution
which has passed over the Southern
States still remain. The immeasurable
benefits which will surely follow, soon
er or later, and the hearty and gener
ous acceptance ot the legitimate results
of the revolution have not yet been re
alized. This difficult and cmbarassmg
question meets us &t the threshold of
this subject. The people of these States
are still impoverished and the mestima
ble blessing of a wise, honest-- nd
peaceful local self-government isnotful
ly enjoyed. Whatever difference of
opinion may . exist as to the cause of
this condition of things the tact is clear
that in the progress of events the time
has come when such government is the
imperative necessity required by all the
varied interests, public and private, ot
those States. Uut it must not be tbr
gotten that only a local government
which recognizes and maintains invio
late the rights of all is a true self-government.
With respect to the two dis
tinct races, whose peculiar relations to
each other have brought upon us the
deplorable complications and perplexi
ties which exist in those States, it must
be a government which decides the in
terests of both races carefully and
equally : it must be a government which
submits loyally and heartily to the con
stitution and the laws of the nation, and
the laws ot the States themselves ; ac
cepting and obeying faithfully the whole
constitution as it is. Resting upon this
sure and substantial foundation, the
superstructure ot beneficent local self
governments can be built p, and not
otherwise. . In the furtherance ot such
obedience to the letter and spirit of the
constitution, and in belief of all that its
attainment applies, all so called party
interests lose their apparent importance,
aud party lines may all be permitted to
fade into insignificance. The question
we have to consider for the immediate
welfare ot those States of the Union is
the question of government or no gov
ernment ; ot the social order and the
peaceful industries, and all the happi
ness that belong to it, or a return to
barbarism. It is a question in which
every citizen of the nation is deeply in
terested, and with respect to which we
ought not to be in a partisan sense eith
er Republicans or Democrats, but fel
low citizens and fellow men, to whom
the interests ot a common country and
a common humanity are near. The
sweeping revolution of the entire
, LABOR SYSTEM
Of a large portion of our count ry and
the advance of four millions of people
from the condition of servitude to that
of citizenship, upon an equal footing
with their former masters, could not oc
cur without presenting a problem of the
gravest moment to be dealt with by the
emancipated race, by their former mas
ters, and by the general government,
the author of the act of emancipation.
That it was a wise, just and providen
tial act, fraught with good for all con
cerned, is now generally - conceded
throughout the country. That the mor
al obligation rests upon the national
government to employ its constitutional
powers and influence to establish the
rights ot the people it has emancipated,
and to protect them in the enjoyment
of those rights, when they are infringed
er assailed, is also generally admitted.
The evils which afflict the Southern
States can only be removed or reme
died by the united and harmonious
EFFORTS OF BOTH RACES,
Actuated by motives of mutual sympa
thy and regard, and while iu duty bound
aud fully determined to protect the
rights ot all by every 'constitutional
means at the disposal ot my administra
tion, I am sincerely anxious to use every
legitimate influence in tavor ot an non
est and efficient local government as the
true resource ot those States tor the
promotion of contentment and prospcr-
ty ot their citizens. Iu that effort I
shall make to accomplish this purpose,
I ask the cordial co-operation at all who
cherish an interest in the welfare ot the
country, trusting that party ties and the
prejudice of race will be freely surren
dered in behalf ot the great purpose to
be accomplished. In the important
work ot the reconstruction ot the bonth,
it is not the political situation alone that
merits attention. The material devel
opment of that section of the country
has been arrested by the social ana po
litical revolution through which it has
passed, and now needs and deserves the
considerate care of the National Gov
ernment within the just limits prescrib
ed by the Constitution and a wise pub
lic economy. Uut at the basis ot all
prosperity, tor that as well as every
other part of the country, this improve
ment of the intellectual and moral con
dition ot the people.
UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE SHOULD REST
UPON UNIVERSAL EDUCATION.
To this end liberal and permanent
provision should be made tor the sup
port ot tree schools by State govern
ments, aid, if need be, supplemented by
legitimate and from national authority.
Let me assure my countrymen ot the
Southern States that it is my earnest
desire and regard to promote their true
interests, the interests ot the white aud
of the colored people, both equally, and
to put tbrth my best efforts in behalf of
a civil policy which will forever wipe
out of your political affairs the color
line and the distinction between North
and South, to the end that we may have
not merely a united North and united
South, but a united country.
I ask the attention of the public to
the paramount necessity of reform in our
civil service, a reform not merely as to
certain abuses aud practices of so-railed
official patronage which have come to
have the sanction of usage in the several
departments of our government, but a
change in the system ot appointment
itself, a reform that shall be thorough,
radical and complete, a return to the
principles ami practices of the founders of
the government. They neither expected
nor desired from pubheofheers any parti
san service: they meant that public offi
cers should owe their whole service to the
government and the people ; they meant
that the officer should be secure in his
tenure as long as his personal character
remained untarnished, and 1 lie perform
ance of his d::ties satisfactory ; they held
that appointment to office was nut to
be made or expected merely as rewards
for partisan services, nor merely on the
nominations of members of Congress as
being entitled in any respect to the con
trol ot such appointments. I he fact
that both political parties of the country
in declaring their principles, prior to
the election, gave prominent place to
the subject ot the reform ot our civil
service, recognizing and strongly urging
its necessity in terms almost identical in
their speciric import with those I have
here employed, niust be accepted as
conclusive argument I? behalf of these
measures. It must be regarded as an
expression of the united voice and will
ot the whole country.
THE PRESIDENTIAL TERM SIX YEARS.
The President of the United States,
of necessity, owes his election to office
to the suffrages and zealous labors ot a
political party, members ot which cher
ish with ardor and regard as of essential
importance the principles ot their party
organization; but he should strive to be
always mindful of the fact that he serves
his party best who serves the country
best. In furtherance of ihe reform we
seek, and as in other important respects
a change of great importance, I recom
mend an amendment to the Constitution
prescribing a term of six years lor the
Presidential office, and forbidding a re
With respect to the financial condition
of the country I shall not attempt an ex
tended history of the embarrassment and
prostration which we have suffered, during
the past three years. The depression iu all
the varied commercial and manufacturing
interests throughout the country which be-
rn in September, 1S73, still continues. It
very gratifying, however, to be able to
say that there are indications all around us
ot a coming change to prosperous times.
THE CURRENCY QUESTION,
Intimately connected as it i3 with this top
ic, I may be permitted to repeat here the
statement made in my letter of acceptance.
In my judgment the feeling of uncertainty,
inseparable from an irredeemable paper
currency, with its fluctuations ot values, is
one of the great obstacles to a return to
prosperous times. The only safe paper
currency is one which rests upon a coin
basis, and is at all times promptly convert
ible into coin. I adhere to the views here
tofore expressed by me in favor of Congres
sional legislation in behalf of an early re
sumption of specie payment. And I am
satisfied not only that this is wise, but that
the Interests as well as the public sentiment
ofthe country imperatively demand it.
Passing from these remarks upon the con
dition of our own country to consider our
relations with other lands, we are reminded

THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION.
Fellow-citlsens, we have reached the
close of a political contest marked with the
eXuitetiieut which usually attends the con
test between great political parties, whose
members espouse and advocate with earnest
taith their respective creeds. The circum
stances were, perhaps, in no respects ex
traordinary, save in the closeness and the
consequent uncertainty of the result. For
the first time In the history of the country,
it has been deemed best, in view ot the
peculiar circumstances of the case, that the
objections and questions In dispute, with
reterence to the counting ol the electoral
votes, should be referred to the decision of
a tribunal appointed for this purpose.
That tribunal, established by law for this
sole purpose. Its members, all of them, of
long established reputation for integrity
and intelligence, and with the exception of
those who are also members ot the Supreme
Judicial-, chosen equally from both politi
cal parties to the deliberations, enlightened
by the research and the arguments of able
counsel, was entitled t the fullest confi
dence of the Atneriun people. Its decisions
have been patiently waited for, and accept
ed as legally conclusive by the general
judgment ot the public. For the present,
opinion will widely vary as to the wisdom
ot the several conclusions announced by
that tribunal. This is to be anticipated in !
every instance where matters of dispute
are made the subject of arbitration under
the forpis of law. Human judgment is
never unerrins;, and is rarely regarded as
otherwise than wrong by the unsuccessful
party in the contest. The fact that two
great political parties have, hi this way,
settled disputes in regard to which good
men differ as to the law no less than as to
the proper course to be pursued In solving
me question m controversy, is an occasion
for general rejoicing. Upon one point
there Is entire unanimity in public senti
ment that the conflicting claims to the
Presidency must be amicably and peace
ably adjusted, and that when so adjusted
the general acquiescence of the nation
ought surely to follow. It lias been re
served for a government of the people
where the right of suffrage is universal, to
give to the world the first example in his
tory of a great nation in the midst ot a
struggle of opposing parties tor power,
hushing Its party tumults, to yield the issue
of the contest to adjustment according to
the forms of law, looking for the guidance
of that divine hand by which the destinies
of nations and individuals are shaped. I
call upon you, Senators, Representatives,
Judges, fellow-citizens, here and every
where to unite with me In an earnest effort
to secure to our country the blessings, not
only of material prosperity, bnt of justice.
peace and union ; a union depending not
upon the constraint of lorce, but upon the
loving devotion of a free people; that all
things may be so ordered and settled upon
the liest and firmest foundations, that peace
and happiness, truth and justice, religion
and piety, may be established among us
for all generations.

ity of the executive mansion. Mrs. Grant
had prepared a sumptuous lunch in the
family dinins room of the executive man
sion to which the President, ex-President
and members of the cabinet and several
friends of President Hayes repaired. Many
ladies were present. It was altogether an
informal affair. The house has been placed

As soon as the Chief Magistrate had

there would be a general reception. In

OPIXIOXS OF THE EXGLISII rXESS
President Hayes' inaugural address
was published in full in London, creat
ing a favorable impression. -
The Times says the greater part of
it was of a character that might have
been well received by men of all parties.
The News says the principles Presi
dent Hayes enunciates are excellent.
The Telegraph says : We do not
imagine his candid opponents will com
plain of the tone and temper of tne ad
dress, which deals with questions of the
highest moment. Hayes speaks with
the dignity and frankness becoming the
chief magistrate of a great people, and
points ways to ends which, if they can
be accomplished, will redound to his
honor and that of his country.
THE TELEGRAPH DISTANCED.
We noticed the marvelous fact in a
recent issue of the Register, that at
the telegrapher's ball in Chicago, music
was furnished from Milwaukee, Wis
consin, over the telegraph line by means
of the telephone. This was truly a
wonderful feat, but. it has been outdone
right I ere at home. No longer ago
than the 6th of last December, Gov,
Grover and the man Crouin and their
compatriots, danced to music furnished
all the way from New York by tele
graph I a feat unparalleled (in infamy)
in either ancient or modern history. '

HUE DEB MOST FOUL.
About four miles south ot Portland
in a cabin on what is known as "Rohr's
farm," early on Saturday morning last,
occurred a most shocking and unac
countable murder. We have room on
ly for the facts as we find them in the
Portland papers : The cabin
of above was occupied by Don
Thomas and T. D. Davis, who had
beeu stopping there for thiee or four
weeks, engaged in cutting wood to be
used by them in carrying on the busi
ness of the "Asphaltum Paving and
Roofing Co.," of which they were pro
prietors. On Saturday morning last
between 12 and 1 o'clock, Thomas and
Davis were aroused from 6leep by a load
knock at the cabin door. Thomas got
np at once and lit a candle, when he de
manded to know who the visitor was
and what was wanted. The answer
came, "Let us in, wo want something to
eat." Supposing it to be a belated
traveler who had lost his way in the
woods, Thomas opened the door, when
two men entered the cabin disguised
and masked, and before a word could
be uttered one of them drew and cocked
a revolver at Thomas' bead, warning
him in a hoarse whisper to make no
alarm or he was a dead man. The sec
ond masked party passed into the cabin,
picked up a hatchet that lay on the
floor aud advanced to the bed in wb'ch
Davis lay and asked, "Is your name
Thomas. D. Davis." Davis replied,
Yes, and you have got the drop on
me. vv ithout another wora tne man
dealt Davis four or five heavy blows
with the hatchet, literally chopping
his head to pieces. lie then drew the
lifeless body partly out of bed and stab
bed it several times, aud not content
with this he then cut the throat of the
dead man from ear to ear. Thomas
was compelled to 6tand by all this time
and see his pardner thus cruelly mur-
dered without the power to lift an arm
in his defense. The guard then took
Thomas a short distance from the cabin,
watching him closely all the time and
giving him no chance to raise an alam
or get away. The murderer still re
mained in the cabin. In a few minutes
a cloud ot smoke issued from the cabin,
aud shortly after the red flames burst
through the roof. The murderer then
issued from the cabiu and approached
Thomas and his guard. The guard
then told Thomas to go home, and "If
you tell any one before morning I'll kill
you." The assassins then disappeared
in the woods, and Thomas fled to Port-
land and informed the police of the ter
rible tragedy. When Chief Lappens,
and officers Belcher and Watson, ac
companied by Thomas, arrived on the
ground, they found the cabin a smoul
dering ruins. There was nothing left
of the murdered man but a small piece
of charred flesh all the bones of the
body crumbled to ashes as soon as
touched. Tliomas thinks the assassins
wore masks made of gunny sacks,
Search was made in every direction, but
no clue to ykc murderers had been found
at last accounts. The murdered man
seems to have been a peacei.,Mc honora
t.h mm"der is
veiled in impenetrable mystery.
THE CHICAGO TIMES OX DEMOC
RACY. The Chicago Times has always been
a radical Democratic paper, and has
never let an occasion slip to vilify and
traduce the Republican party and its
leading members. From the annexed
paragraph taken from its columns since
the announcement of Hayes' election, it
will be seen that it has even a less opin
ion of the Democratic party than it here
tofore expressed of the Republican.
Here is what the Times says:
One effect ot this revolution by fraud
and treachery the nation will not have
occasion to regret, it destroys utterly
the last possible cliance of bringing back
to political life the malodorous revolu
tion of political hucksters called the
Democratic party. It consigns the chief
leaders of that disreputable combination
to a future record of infamy, as treach
erous characters who are capable of sell
ing out the supreme moment to a revo
lutionary conspiracy of office holders.
It adds another chapter of treachery to
the history of that political putridity
which the name of Democracy imparts.
It puts a bar for the future against any
politician of that party name asking
any voter to regard him as a more virtu
ous politician than the knaves of cor
ruption to whom, in 1877, he deliber
ately sold out.
If it is true as charged by our Dem
ocratic brethren that Ben. Hill of Geor
gia, and Lamar of Mississippi, have
gone into the Republican ranks, we con
gratulate those gentlemen on having at
last gotten into good company. And
as we have it from the same authority
that both Hill and Lamar are accom
plished gentlemen and statesmen, we
have no doubt "being now in respectable
company is much more congenial to
their tastes than when they trained with
what the Chicago Times (Democratic)
Btylesthe "knavesof corruption" known
