Prayers la the Legislature."
Under this caption, wo noticed in the
Herald of Saturday, the 27th ult., a brief
extract from the Springfield (Mass.) Re
publican in reference to the appointment of
a chaplain inthe Massachusetts Legislature,
'with editorial comments. ; The writer of
the extract referred to speaks in
his usual flippant way, when dwelling
upon nigral or religions themes, and
-seeka to impress upon the minds of his
readers the inutility of religions observ
ances in connection with legislation. We
are sorry that a .paper so extensively cir
culated as a family journal, should advo
cate such sentiments as those found in the
Springfield Republican. Again we are
orry that a Republican paper should
take such a. low moral position, that
Democratic paper can consistently echo
-its sentiments. Men sometimes, inadvert
ently give currency to ideas which bring
tberu into associations they would gladly
avoid. If one barks like a dog, he will
soon find himself in the companionship of
dogs. As to the application which our
.friend of the Herald makes of the senti
ments of the Republican, -we must say its
'force depends upon the point of view from
"w hich one looks at it. "Where he seeks to
point out bad effects, we only discover
good results. If the Chaplain of our last
Legislature was faithful in the discharge
-01 ms duty a3 ne undoubtedly was, we
may suppose that ho frequently offered
that most earnest petition of the Lord's
prayer, that those for whom ho prayed
might bo delivered from all evil, and es
pecially from evil associations. Those
members who withdrew from the Legisla
ture, whether or not moved by the pray
ers of their chaplain acted up to the spirit,
of this petition ot the Lord's Prayer. All
honest men must admit this, whatever may
be their view3 regarding the expediency
of such an act. It is not strange that
Democrats should oppose the idea of em
ploying chaplains in the Legislature, lor,
In the first place, in these days it is very
difficult to find a clergyman, of " good
moral character," to act in that capacity,
whoso political sentiments would har
monize with their own. Men who rever
ence and worship God, generally have
respect for decency, sobriety and morality
in political life. And in the second place,
so far as our observation goes, the Demo
cratic legislators of the present day, do
not, as a rule, belong to a class of men who
are susceptible to the higher " spiritual''
influences. Had we not faith in the power
ofprayer3, we might think that for all such,
they were words wasted on the air. There
is nothing alarming, or even strange in
this opposition to prayer in our legislative
halls, coming from the source it does. It
is as true to-day, as it was long ago, that
" Wherever God erects a house of prayer.
The devil always builds a chapel there."
But the Republican and the Herald aside,
we protest against ail such sneers, at the
;public expression ot religious thoughts
.and feelings. If our religious professions
Are worth anything, they are worth carry
ing with us into every important action in
life in which we feci an interest. Those
who talk so lightly of religion and relig
ious duties would perhaps indignantly
.repel the idea of invading the sanctity of
i home and silencing the voice of prayer
.at the family altar, yet he who feels the
kSieed of divine strength to enable him to
act well his part as a citizen of the State
must feel more deeply the responsibility
resting upon him when elevated to the
position of a lawgiver in the State. We
profess to be a Christian commonwealth,
and to frame all laws designed to secure
the welfare of the people after the model
of the divine law. We profess to recog
nize God, as the Supreme Head of the
State, upon whom depends national as
well as individual prosperity. If we deem
it a duty incumbent unon 113 to seek di
vine wisdom to guide us in individual af
fairs and he is unworLhy of success who
does not feel it a duty the more should
those who participate in national affairs
feel it a duty to seek divine guidance by
bo much as ibe national welfare stirpasses-
mere inuivmuai good, who engage
in the work of legislation should feel thai
it is a solemn work and that as such, they
fchould enter upon it-confident in the bless
ing of God. . Were the people tnre t
itheir own best interests, our legislature
would not present as they sometimes dt
an inviting field for missionary effort
Desids all this we protest against tbt
,press lending its aid in the diffusion i
sentiments which tend more or less direct
ly to demoralize community. In thes
days, the press has became a power in
the land, in many respects, it has an in
fluence, more wide-reaching than the pul
pit. It makes an impress upon thousands
of minds, that the teachings of the pulpit
never directly reach. The press and the
pulpit should be allies, not enemies, and
work together for the moral elevation of
the race. In shcrt, the newspaper press
must be an ally of the pulpit if it would
.maintain its vigor unimpaired, for it is the
offspring of a Christian civilization. The
well-known words cf Justice Story con
tain a sentiment worthy the reflection of
every man. who would seek through the
newspaper press to bring reproach upon
a Here shall the press the people's right

Inaugural Address of President
Citizens of 'the United States : f
lYour suffrages having elevated me
to the office af Presideut of the Unit-
ed States, I have, in conformity with
the Constitntion of our county, taken
the oath of office prescribed therein.
have taken this oath without mental
reservation, and with the determina
tion to do, to the best ot my ability,
all that it requires of me.-. The res
ponsibilities of the position I feel, bat
accept them without fear. The office
has , come to me unsought. I com
mence it3 duties untrammeled. I
bring to it a conscientious desire and
determination to fill it to the best of
my ability and to the satisfaction of
the people. ,
On all leading questions agitating
the public mind, I will express my
views to Congress and urge them ac
cording to my judgment, and when I
think it advisable I will always exer
cise the Constitutional privilege of
interposing a veto, to defeat measures
which I may oppose ; but all laws
will be faithfully executed, whether
they meet my approval or not.
I shall, on all subjects, have a poli
cy to recommend, but none to enforce
o gainst the xoill of the people. The
laws a,re to govern all alike, those
opposed to them as welt as those who
favor them. I know no method to
secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious
laws so.t'fie-ctive as their stringent ex
ecution. The country having just emerged
from a great rebellion, very many
questions will come before it for set
tlement in the next four years which
the preceding administrations have
never had to deal with. In meeting
them, it is desirable that they should
he approached calmly, without preju
dice to State or sectional price, re
membering that the greatest good to
the greatest number is the object to
be attained. This requires the secu
rity of person, of property, end for
religious and political opinions in
every part of our common country,
without regard to locality or preju
dice. Laws to secure these will re
ceive my best efforts for their enforce
ment. A great debt h&s been contracted
in securing for us and our posterity
the Union. The payment of this,
principal and interest, as well as the
return to a specie basis as soon as it
can be accomplished without material
detriment to the debtor class or the
country 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 siipulated
in the contracts. Let it be under
stood that no repudiator of a farthing
of our public debt will be trusted in
a public place, and it will go far to
wards strengthening a credit which
ouant to be the best in the world,
and will ultimately enable us to re
place the debt with bonds bearing less
interest than we now pay. To this
should be added a faithful collection
of the Revenue; a strict accountabil
ity to the Treasury for every dollar
collected, and the greatest practical
retrenchment in expenditure in every
department of the Government.
When we compare the paying capac
ity of the country now, with the States
still in poverty from the effects of the
war, but soon to emerge, I trust, in
to greater prosperity than ever be
fore, with its paying capacity twenty
6ve years ago, and to calculate what
it probably will be twenty-five years
hence, who can doubt, the feasibility
of paying every dollar then with
more ease than we now pay for use
less luxuries'? Why it looks as
though Providence has bestowed up
on us a strong box cf the precious
metal locked up in the sterile rooun.
tains of the far West, which we are
now forging the key to unlock, to
meet the very contingency that now
is upon us. Ultimately it may be
necessary that the Genpral Govern
ment should give its aid to secure
this access, but that should only be
when a dollar of obligation to pay
secures precisely the same as a dollar
to us now, and not before. While
the question of specie payment is in
abeyance, the prudent business man
is careful about contracting debts
payable in the distant future. The
nation should foilow the same rule:
Prostrate commerce is to be rebuilt
and all industries encouraged. The
young ine.i of the country who, from
their age, must be its rulers twenty
five years hence, have a particular
interest in maintaining the national
honor. A moment's reflection as to
what will be our commanding influx
ence among the nations of the earth
iu their day, if they are only true to
themselves, should inspire them with
nationul pride. All divisions geo
graphical, political and religious
concur in this common sentiment.
How the public debt is to be paid,
or specie payment resumed, is not so
important as that a plan should be
adopted and acquiesced in. A united
determination to do it is worth more
than divided counsels upon the method
of doing. Legislation upon this sub
ject may not be fcecessary now or
even advisable, bnt it will be when
the civil law i3 more fully restored in
all parts of the country and trade
resumes its wonted channel. It wiii
be my endeavor to execute all laws
iu good faith, collect all revenues as
sessed and to have them properly
accounted for and economically dis
bursed. It will be for me, to the
best of my ability, to appoint to of
fice 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 thei dealings
with us, we may be compelled to fol
low their precedents.
The proper treatment of the origi
nal occupants of this land the iudi
ans are deserving of care and equal
study. I will favor any course to
wards them which tends to their civ
ilization, Christianity and ultimate
The question of sufTVnge is likely
to agitate the public, so long as a
portion of the citizens of the uation
are excluded from its privilege in any
State. It seems to me very desira
ble that this question should be set-
tied now. I entertain the hope, and
express he desire that it may be, by
the ratification of the fit tee nth article
of the amendment to the constitution.
In conclusion, I ask and
forbearance of one towards another
throughout the land, and a determin
ed effort on the part of every citizen
to do bis share towards cementing a
happy union ; and I ak the prayers
of the Nation to Almighty God in
behalf of this consummation.
"Washington, March 2 Mr Col
fax has nsijined the Speakership.
He said : " The parting word among
friends about to separate is always a
regretful one; but the farewell which
takes me from this hall in which so
many years have been spent, excites
in me emotions which it would be
useless to attempt to conceal. The
fourteen years during which we have
been associated as representatives cf
the people, have been full of eventful
legislation. Exciting issues, grave
questions and decisions vitally r.tuct
ing'the entire Republic all this with
the accompanying scenes which so
often produced in the arena of debate
the warmth of feeling of our antago
nistic constituents, has passed into
the domain of history. 1 but refer to
them to express the joy which is r.p
parently shared by the mass of our
countrymen, that the storm cloud of
war which so long darkened our ra
tional welfare has passed away, leav
ing our imperilled Union savul, and
that, by the decrees of the people,
liberty was proclaimed throughout
the land to all the inhabitants there
of. Bat I cannot leave you without
ore word of rejoicing over the pres
ent position of our Republic among
the nation? of the earth. With our
military power almost unlimited, re
sources rapidly augmenting as well
as population, and the welcome at
our gates to the oppressed of other
lands, our vast agricultural, maun
facturing and mineral capacities, our
frontage on two oceans, our almost
completed Pacific Railroad, unitirg
those opposite shores and becoming
the highway of the nations, the
United States commands that respect
among the powers ot the world
which insures the maintenance of all
its national rights and the security
of all its citizens from injustice and
oppression abroad. Nor is this ail
The triumphal progress of free insti
tutions here has had its potential in
fluence beyond the sea. The right
of the people to govern, based on the
principle that all governments .derive
their just powers from the consent
of the governed, is everywhere ad
vancing, not with a slow measured
tread, but with a rapidity that with
in a few years fin's bsen so signally
illustrated in Britain, Spain, Italy,
Prussia, Hungary and other lands.
May we not hope that by the moral
but powerful force of our example,
the fetters may everywhere be broken
and some of us hve to see the happy
era when slavery and tyranny shall
no more be known in the world for
ever to the end of the earth.
I cannot claim in the share I have
had in the deliberations and legisla
tion of the IIou3e as a member and
officer, to have always done that
which is wisest and best in word and
act, for none is infallible; but that 1
have striven to perform faithfully
every duty, and hare beernievoted to
the principles that I have deemed
correct, that the honor and glory of
our country have always beeu para
mount and above party tie., I con
scientiously assert; that I have sought
to mitigate rather than intensify the
associations which the collisions of
opposing partu s so often evoke, mn-t
be left to my fellow mcmbirs to
verify. -
In the responsible duties of the
pa-t six years, I have endeavored to
administer your law?, both in the
letter and spirit, with impartiality
and uninfl'jeuced by political associ
ates or antagonists. I may be par
doned t expression of gratification
that while no decision has been re
versed, there has been no appeal ever
decided by a strictly party vote. If
in the quickness with which the pre
siding officer Is "compelled to role
hour after hour on parliamentary
points in the performance of his duty
to protect all members in their rights
and advance the progress of public
business and preserve order, any
word has fallen from my lips that un
justly wounded any one, I withdraw
it. I leave this hall with no feeling
of unkiudness towards any member
with whom I have been associated in
all the cares of the past, hoping
earnestly, I think, to practice that
lesson of life which commands us to
write of our enemies on the sand,
but to engrave , friends high on
granite. ... .-
But the, last word cannot be lon
ger, delayed. I bid farewell to a
faithful, confiding constituency, whose
affectionate regard has sustained and
encompassed me through all the years
of my public life. r. Farewell to this
hall, which in its excitement and ac
tivity so ofteu seems to represent the
throbbmgs and intense feelings of the
national heart. And, finally, fallow-
members and friends, with sincere
gratitude for the .generous support
which you have always given me in
my difficult and other complex duties
ot this chair, with the warmest wishes
for your health, happiness and pros
perity, one and lill, I bid you fare
well. Resolutions were unanimously
passed that the retirement of Colfax
from the Speaker's chair after a long
and faithful discharge of its duties is
an event in our current history which
causes general regret, but that the
country is to have the benefit of his
matured talents and experience in
the higher sphere of duty to which
lie has been called by a majority of
his countrymen. On thus parting
from its distinguisded Speaker, the
House records with becoming sensi
bility its high appreciation of his skill
and parliamentary law, promptness
in administering and facilitating bus- i
iness, his urbane manner and the
dignity and impartiality with which
he presides over the deliberations of
the Ilouse. lie will carry with him
to his field of duty and throughout
his life the kindest regards of every
member of the 'House. Mr. Pome
roy was unanimously elected Speak
er. He took the oath and returned
Washington, March 4. In the
Senate- Cojfax said: In entering this
chamber for the, performance of the
duties to which I have been called
by the people of the United States, I
realize fu!!yhe delicacy and respon
sibility of the position of presiding
over a body whose members, in so
large a degree, are seniors. Not be
ing chosen by the bo;ly itself, I shall
certainly need assistance, support and
generous forbearance and confidence,
but pledging all faithful and unfl nch
ing impartiality in the administration
of your rules, earnestly desii iritr co
operation with you in the delibera
tions of the Senate, worthy not only
to the history of renown, but id so of
the States whose commissions you
hold. I am ready to take the oath
freely. Tue o-ith was then adminis
tered by Chief Justice Chase.
The Ediiior of tha
hag been over the line of the Oregon
Central Railroad recently and he
says :
Everything is in tha best possible
ordr, and the manner in w hich the
work is goinjj on is a certain indica
tiou that the road is to be pushed for
ward rapidly. In an about the mills
and shops 125 men are employed and
the good weather we are nowhavinjj is
extremely favorable for the prosecu
tio-.i of the work. The two steam saw
mills are bting pnshed to their ut
most capacity. It is intended to
prepare at these mills all the ties,
bridge timber and trestles which will
be requited for the road at least ns
far as tho Santiam. Each of the
mills is situated in an excellent body
oflimbrr, very near the line of the,
road and ubiut two miles distant
from Milwankie iu Clackamas county.
About GO&.OOO ties have already
been sawed, and a considerable qian
tity of bridge timber. In the mach
ine and car shops at East I'ortlan t,
work isgning oa br.-kiy. Two superb
passenger c irs, each fifty feet long,
are advanced toward completion and
eijjht more will be built immedi
ately. Several heavy construction
cars have been built. About two miles
north of the Clackamas river a party
are employed putting in foundations
for a considerable piece of trestle
work which it is necessary to crvet at
that point. All appearances indicate
that the road wiii make rapid pro
gress during the coming summer.
What Does Georgia Mean?
A telegram recently says:
'The Georgia Legislature has adopt
ed resolutions ex passing their confi.
dence in Grant, as truly the President
of the people, aud that his Adminstra
tion will restore peace and tranquili
ty to all sectiocs of the country.''
Are not these the Conservatives
who turned all the blaclc men out of
their chambers-r and is not their
State noted for its Ka-Klux outrages?
If these people are in earnest tliey
are progressing wonderfully.
The following paper was served by
Sheriff Myers a few days since, upon J. M.
Bacon Esq.,--who has just resigned hia po
sition as Justice of the -Peace in this city,

office and his own private business affairs.

Sir: The undersigrled do, in the strong
est terms, remonstrate against your action
in depriving us of our social and pleas
ant game of checkers, by taking possession
of the old checker-board, and protest
aginst your claim to the same, as we
claim it from the fact that the great length
of time it has been in tbe possession of the
club' gives them the right to hold the same
by law; not by legislative enactment, but,
by law of reason

To Mssrz. W. B. Bianchard, S. Stone,
IV , J. Lultlwe'.l, ana many others.
Gents: Your Protest and Remonstrance
of February twidy-ninth is at hand. I have
gravely considered its contents, and here
with append my reply and demurrer for
the following reasons:
First. That there is no such day this
year as February ticeniy-rdnth, that conse
quently you were not iu existence on the
day specified. I confess that I did take
away the Board, but I was actuated by
good motives, rmong which were these:
lhat habits of idleness and dissipation
are engendered by throwing temptation in
the way of" those who have not the streugth
t resist: but if you still persist iu the oc
cupation I might say the only occupation
which you have had for some length of
time you certainly should call and buy
one of my fine boards, together with a dice
box, dice, and un elegant set of checker
men. all of which you can have for the
small sum of seven dollars and fifty cents
in gold coin or its equivalent.
2s'ow Sirs; it" I have not given you suffi
cient reasons for taking into my posses
sion the old board, which you h;ive the
presumption to claim by right of the long
possession which my kiudness of heart has
allowed you, then iu the name of goodness
what reason can I give?
Yours with very great respect.
"We are inclined to beleive that the club
will see the utility of purchasing a new
board. To be sure. Spring is approach
ing, and business is expected to revive,
wtien tuese gentlemen win ue mainnsr
themselves scarce, but their claims to the
new board, under such circumstances,
would never be brought into question.
We have received the first num."
ber of the Wallamet Farmer pub
lished at Salem by A. L. Stinson.
It is in all respects a valuable acqui
sition to the Oregon press. In the
salutatory appears the following:
The paper will be central as be
twecn political parties, 3nd will speak
of or proposo measures only as they
affect the interests of the many.
Whenever any measure becomes par
tisan, it will cease to claim a place in
the Farmer neither will anything
calculated to wound the feelings id
any particular sect or religion- de
nomination fin i room in its pages.
It will be the earnest endeavor of
those conducting the paper to make
it minister to the happiness of every
home which it may enter, and to the
prosp-rity of every well-intentioned
member of society.
Tho Call has an artie'e on who
originated tho idea of a Pacific rail
road. Many awarded the honor to
Carver. Henry S Fitch, b merchant
of San Francisco in the ''flush times"
of the early days of California, offered
two prizes one of $10,000 and an
other of, $5,000 for the best and
second best es-ays on the bencGts to be
conferred on the Nation by the con
struction of a trauscontiuen'a! railway.
The Call says he i3 entitled to the
credit of having endeavored tiput it
into practical operation; but adds
"that the g'ory of the early origin
ators and promoters of the idea of a
Pacific Railroad pales before that of
the JStanfords, dockers, M;irk IIop
kins.and Huntington, who have put it
into execution and hudt the road."
