TUB FIFTH OF KIAUCII.
HISTORICAL PRECEDENT FOR THE IN
The 4th of March, next year, falls
npon a Sunday, and the question has
been asked, when will the next Presi
dent be inaugurated on Sunday the
4th, or on Monday, the 5th ? The
question has already been Bcttlcd by
historical precedent. ' 1
The UonBtitutiou provides that tne
President aud Vice President of the
United States shall hold their offices
during the term of four years, but no
provision was made by the uamers 01
that instrument when the four years'
" orinnld commence. Hv aft-ftf
Congres, passed beptoiuoerio, Hio,
the Constitution having at that
time been ratified by a sufficient num
ber of States the time set for the in
auguration of the first President of
the United States and tho commence
ment of tho working of the new Con
stitution was the first Wednesday in
March, 1789, that being the 5th of
March. In fact, however, the innugu-
ration ot loiJoi.t Waalnniltnn did
not take place until Wednesday,
April 30th, eight weeks after the des
ignated time. In more limn one his
tory it lias been erroneously stated
that tho Constitution went into effect
and the inauguration took place on
the 4th of March, that being neither
the day appointed nor the actual day
of either event.
Before the second term of Presi
dent Washington the day for com
mencing the terra ot olhco was
changed. The act of March l; 1792,
provided that the four years for which
a x resident aim vice x rcsiueiib rsuau
be elected sliall in'all cases commence
on the 4th day of March next succeed
inz the day on which the voles of the
electors shall have been given. The
4th ot March, 1798, on which by law
the second terra of President Wash
ington commenced, fell Ion a Sunday.
We have not before us anything stal
ing exactly the day oi which Wash
ington took the oath of office, but
from his known character, and from
the course of after proceedings in sim-J
liar cases, we have little doubt ins
second inauguration was on Monday
Tho next occurrence of the 4th of
March in Presidential year falling on
Sunday was in 1821. when Prest
dent Monroe commenced his second
term. The inauguration was on Mon
day, the 5th. The National Intelli-
ffencer, ot March bin, describes ine
scene, and said the oath was adminis
tered by Chief Justice Marshal. The
proceedings took place in the House
The third occurrence ot tins Kina
was in 1849, when President Taylor
was inaugurated. In this instance,
also, the ceremonies took place on
Monday, the 5th of March.
Next year the President elect will,
therefore, be inaugurated on Monday,
the 5th of March, instead ot Sunday,
the 4th. There is, we believe, no
special law bearing on the subject,
but the proceedings follow the gener
al rule that for legal purposes Sun
day is a dies non, and Saturday, the
3d of M arch, therefore only ends wnen
Monday, the 5lh of March, begins.
This rulo is followed in Congressional
proceedings, where it has happened
that Saturday's sitting has been pro
longed until Monday, the records
showing no evidence of rart of the
proceedings having taken place on
Every seventh Presnential term
the 4th of March, on which the term
should commence, falls npon Sunday,

the duration of the term the coin
cidence will not again occur until the

TII&DONITIOJI PARTY AT WILL0OR00K.
So many confusod and contradicto
ry rumors have been' circulated about
that last donation?partyfthat I (who
have beard the whole story from my
frioad knd neighbor, Miss Mix) would
like tcr give the world a plain, unvar
nished'acoount of the whole lestivity.
Let tno, then, introduce my inform
ant. Miss Melissa Mix, spinster, own
ing to forty, moderately woll en
dowed with this world's goods, house
keeper and caretaker for her only
brother Ralph, somo yoars hor senior,
both cf them prominent members of
tho Willowbrook church and thus
heralded, she shall toll you the story
bIio told mo.
"Of courso we can't give our minis
ter much of a salary, you know, Miss
Harwood; but we've always calki
lated to get a man whose hetrt wasn't
set on filthy lucre, as the 'Postle says.
"1 must own we hadn t bad much
success, tor, would you believe it r
out oi five candidates that preached
here the year we built the church, not
one was willin' to stay and do tho
"Why, there's only about sixty fam
ilies in our church, and it was settled
that first winter that six dollars a fam
ily would be a fair tax, makin' nigh
onto four hundred a year, you see;
yet it's wonderful what tiouble we've
had to git a pastor.
'Brother Ralph thought that meb-
be if we bad a parsonage it would
help us ; so he andjthe oilier trustoes
bought that nice littlo cottage wuere
Miss Gray used to live, with a wholo
rod of land belonging to it; out, law I
'twa'u't of no use ; none of 'em staid
the year out ; and I was clean discour
sed. "When Mr. Ormsby came, nigh on
three venr ao "uia nri rea
sonable linn the rest, though be asked
if we could'nt turnish part of tho par
sonage for him, as thoy was only uow
beginners, and hadn t much house-
"Well, tho ladies was so woll pleased
with him that they took right hold of
the work (ho was to come buck in a
fortnight) and got lots of things to
gether. " 1 hero was a handsome pincushion
made for each of the bed rooms
there's throe on 'em in the house
and halt a dozen tidies for the parlor,
and a caso for his shavin' paper, and
all sent in the first week.
"You've hoard him preach, Miss
Harwood, and you know how inter
estiu' he was, and what a beautiful
reader and Binger too. Why, I de
clare I took real comfort in goin' to
church and sittiu' under suoh proach-
in ; and so we all did, 1 m sure.
"But I was tellin' you about what
we gave him. Woll, Deacon Stiles's
daughter Sally mado a drawin' of tho
church, and framed it in pine cones,
to hang in.Mr. Ormsby's study, and
the deacon ho seut us a cookin' stove
out of his own kitchen. Ile'd jiif-t
bought a new one for Miss Stiles, and
be come over and put it np himself,
which' I thought was uncommon kind.
"Then we took up a contribution to
buy some furniture, but ready money
was skurso just then, so we only rais
ed enough to git a pair of chiny vases
and an inkstand.
"But Silas Hart, that sold 'cm to us,
was one of our members, so he threw
in a chiny dog lor tho baby and a
matchbox for tho parson's wife.
"Miss Jones and Uncle Midian sent
in a new painted bedstead and a table
for the kito'..en, and so I told Ralph
I'd give 'em a couple of kitchen chairs
and our cradle, the one wel was both
rocked in. o I did, and I pieced a
real handsome little quilt for the cra
dle, a sunflower pattern, all out ot
spisk and span new calico, too.
"Well, it's most too bad to ten, but
Mandy Jones, who wont to help Miss
Orrusbv cit to riebts. told me that
she did act dreadful, and not a bit bo-
comm . a minister s wifo.
"Sho went all round the house look
in' as if she was ready to cry, and at
last she sot down on her trunk in the
parlor, and began to laugh at the ink
stand and vases, and then wound up
by findinir fault with the stove, which
she said looked as if it came out of
"I've always thought she made her
husband discontented, for Mr.? Orms
by was such a meek, quiet, unselfish
man, that he would never have made
any trouble if she hadn't been always
complainin' and puttin' him up to
"But I'm wanderin' oft from my
story. I started in to tell you about
the donation party. You see, the first
year we got along splendid with it,
and I must say I never saw a better
tea table spread than we set that night
for Miss Ormsby.
"But that woman never could be
satisfied, and she said afterwards that
it wouldo t take more than two such
parties to ruin any family.
"It aeems she found fault because
we all staid to tewitb 'em, just as if
we hadn t a right to our lea alter sena
in' in all the victual for it.
"But I don't know as Aunt Betsey
did do cisc'ly riht, for ;h tok Mis
Ormsby preserves to put on tue ta-
bio, and thoy was all cat that night,
and I sp'oso that put hor out somo.
"Woll, as I was savin', tho. second
year come round, aud it was read out
in meetin' that tho donation pirty
would bo given tho next Friday,
"Mr. Ormsby read tho nolioo, and
then ho looked all round and olearod
his throat two or throe times, as if ho
had somethin' pertioklcr to say, but
After waitin' a minute he changod his
mind and sat down,
"I thought he actod kindor queor,
but I was quite taken up with notioin'
Miss Ormsby, Sho got red as could
bo, and when meetin was dismissed
she jest hurried out as if sho didu't
want any one to speak to hor. .
"Well, Friday came, and by 3 o'-
dock wo was mostly all at the parson
age. Air. Urtnsby looked dreadful
sober, moro as if it was a funoral than
a merry makin , I must say; but his
wifo was awfil. She was jest as huf
fy aud short as she could bo with
every one, and sho went and lookod
the study door aud put tho key in her
pocket right before us all, as if she
was afraid We'd touch somo of Mr.
Ormsby's papers or books.
"Bimeby we began to think about
setlin' the tablo; so Aunt Botsy, Man
dy Jones and me we went out in the
kitchen to unpack the contributions.
There was boiiio portators and turnips
(them we put in the sullor), a picuo of
cornod beef, two or throe, biloa hams,
a pot of butter, some apple sass, a big
choeso, and such a lot of bisouits it
would havo takon all night to count
. "1 began to got scart whon we took
out panful after panful of bisouit, and
no cake to spenk of. At last we came
to Miss Jones's basket, and there we
found 'lection cako, as woll as a groat
batch ot molasses cookies.
"1 was glad enough I'd sent pound
oake and crullers; but somehow whon
tho tablo was ready, there was more
biscuits on it than anything else,
though we did tho best we could.
"Mr. Johnson sent tea and coffee
from his store, besides crackers and
sugar; and Amos Hull he brought a
lag of nuts and somo apples for tho
young folks aflcr supper, he said.
"There was bo many there that we
had tr Hiv'ulft 'nm un into throw Iota.
the dinin' room bom' small; and it was
most 7 o'clook when they got thiough
"Aunt Botsv staid with me to oloar
up some, and I thought I never should
get all tho bisouits put away, lor they
almost filled the pantry.
"For all thero had been bo many
eaten, yot thoro were piles aud piles
left, and, as Aunt Betsy said, they
wouldn't neod to bake for a month to
"It happened bo that I didn't go out
much the week alter the donation
party, but, the second Sunday alter, I
started on good and early for church,
and as 1 turned Hit- corner by the par
sonage. I saw sometmng that most
took my broath away. Every ono of
those sharp pointed pickets round tho
bouse and cardeu Jtad a good bisouit
stuck right atop of it I Yes, Miss
Harwood, jest as sure as you live, there
was Aunt Betsy's nice raised bisouits
I could toll hern by tho shape and
Miss Hull's rusks, aud Miss Miles' so
da bisouit, and every ono of 'em wast
ed in that shameful way.
"Well, I stood and looked I had
n't the strength to move and protty
soon somo of tho ladies camo along
and joined mo; and there we all stood
till the last bell began, to ring, talkin.
the matter over, and lochng pretty
mad, I 'can toll you.
"Mr. Urrasby had a good sermon
that day, but I oould hardly hear
word, my mind was too full ot tho
"Miss Ormsby wasn't there, and as
soon as the last hymn was sung he got
up and said that he bad bad a call
from a church in tho far West and
that ho had made up his mind that it
was his duty to accept it. lie then
went on to say that ho would like to
go that same week, and without so
much as tellin' us that be was sorry
to leave us, or offurin' to wait till we
could get somo one elso, he gave the
benediction and dismissod us.
"I can toll you there was enough
talk whon we got out tint raornin',
and Borne of the tolks. thought We
ought to 'p'iot a committco to ask
Miss Ormrby about it, but brothor
Ralph said, 'No; if they was goin, let
'em go peaceable ;' so thoy agreed to
say uothin' at all.
"We beard afterwards from little
Johnny Hall, who was playin' near
the parsonage late on Saturday after
noon, that Mr. Ormsby he brought
the biscuits out in a big basket, and
then Miss Ormsby she helped bira to
stick them on the pickets, and she
laughed all the time as if she thought
it was a cood joke.
"I don't want to judge anybody,
but l never am think tnat woman was
fit for a minister's wife, and I don't
think so now.
"Well, they moved off. bas and basr
gage on Wednesday of that week, and
we ve never heard from Mr. Ormsby

And this was Miss JUoiissa s story.
A Texas Girl on ber Travels.
Sho attraotod general attention
soon as she mado her appearance on
tho depot platform. It was not Bo
rn uoh tho Mexican sombrero which
aat jauntily upon her well formod
hoad, aud the tight-fitting, Bbort-skirt-ed
homespun dress, which set off her
woll moulded torm to porteotioo, dui
it was the care and solicitude she man
ifested for tho weltare ot two aged
parents and a halt dozen boys and
girls, all ot whom appeared to be in
her charge.' The family camo in oa
tho Leavenworth, Lawronoo aud Tex- ,
as Railroad last evening, direct from
Toxas, and wore bound for California.
The ohiot of the party, the manager
and guardian, was this young lady..
Sho was as perfect a model of femalO'
beauty as ever lived, it was tins iact
that stoppod all business for a few mo
niouts whorover sho went, while the
ruusculino portion of the pooplo stared.
Sho wore a man's sombrero, one of
those broad brimmod telt bats worn
by tho Spaniards in Moxioo ; her lux
urient brown hair was gathered in tv
not. ber nock was bare, and her form
attracted tho attention of evory one..
She taoklod Major Howrlgan first, and
inquirod of him aftor her train ; sho
Boomod to like him, and to mm sdo
transferred the care of her father,,
mother, brothers and sisters, while
sho lookod alter the baggage.
Thon she tacked the baggago man,,
and whon one of tho trunk tumblers
tro itod her Inquiries with disrespect
ful indillbronoo sho caught him by tho
back ot his luokct and twirled him
round until lie camo up astonished
and polite. Sho had her baggage
ohockod proporly, got hor oheoks and
walked away through the staring and
astonished crowd as unconscious and
indifferent as it she was still on her
native plains of tho Gulf ooast. Thon
sho attonded to the family, purchas
ing thoir food, thoir tiokots, and saw
them sate on tho proper train.
Tho old man, the father of this
handsome young Amazon, is one of-
vl.u vlwMtn ia - t ! Jiut..
He was one of Sam Houston's host bo
loved companions, and a veteran of
some forty yoars ago. He is now
helpless and without means. The ter
rible storm of last winter, which
wreckod bo many of thocitios on tho
ooast ot Texas, mado this eld maa s
pauper. From the wreck of their
once nmplo estate, sufficient moans
had been saved to pay thoir way to
Calilornia, where thoy have family
friends, and this young girl was tho
Moses who resolved to oonduot the
helpless ones to their homo. Her per
fect beauty attracted general atten
tion, and hor modest, but determined
business-like air, won respect. No
wonder all the iailroad moo about tho
dopot fell in love with tho tall, hand
some Texan girl under the Mexican
