On Monday evening President Clove'
land and parly drove quietly to a sta
tion about three miles from Albany,
whero a special train awaited them,
and started for Washington, which
piaco tney reached on Tuesday morn'
tag at 6:30 o'clock. The party con
stated of Mr. Cleveland, his brother
and sistor, his niece Miss llastinea,
Col. Lamont and family, and Daniel
Manning and wile. Tho train con
sisted of an engino, baggage car,
sleeper and hotel car. The railroad
company tendered the free use of tho
train, but tho 1'rcsident-elect rejeotcd
the offer, and insisted on paying for it
On their arrival at Washincton
through somo misunderstanding the
committee was not at the depot to meet
tno President's party, but after a little
delay carriages were obtained and the
party was driven to the Arlington ho
tel wnero elegant quarters were prepar
ed for them. Mr. Cleveland received
daring the day and in tho afternoon be
called on President Arthur at the
White House, where he was shown
through every room. An hour was
spent in pleasant conversation and then
Mr. Cleveland returned to tho Arling
ton. Tho sub-committee appointed by the
inauguration tieneral Keception Uom
mittee to welcome the President-elect
to Washington called on him by ap-
uviutuicub at t u uii'UK linn uiieruuuti.
Their Chairman, Richard T. Merrick,
after introducing his fellow members,
expressed tho welcome in a few well cho
sen words, and Gov. Cleveland felici
touslr returned his acknowledgments.
Informal conversation ensued for some
little time, and the committee then In
dividually took their leave.
Washington was never before so
crowded. About 15,000 people went
from Philadelphia alone, tbo Stato
Militia numbered 7500, and this was
only from one btate. Crowds kept
pouring in on every train until tho
inrong was immense. Jbrom every
Stato and Territory, from every city
and hamlet, still they came and when
the procession was formed on Penn
sylvania Avenue no such scene was
ever before witnessed.
Precisely at 12:30 p. ra., on Wednes-
uay, me neaa ot tne procession appear
ed, coming out of the main east door
of the capitol. President Arthur step
ped to the front of the platform, fol
lowed by tho president-elect, Chief
Justice Waite and tho scrgeatit-at
arms of the senate. All uncovered as
they stood facing the crowd, and tbo
vast assemblage cheered again and
again for several minutes. The per
sons who were to assist at the ceremo
nies were seated on the platform in the
following order :
Chief Justice Waite and Senator
Sherman sat witb the president-elect.
Tho committee on arrangements oc
cupied seats immediately to the right
of the president-elect, ox-presidents and
ox-vico-presidenU and associate justices
ux iue supreme court.
The vico-presideut, secretary and
members of the senate occupied seats
imiucr uu uiu nguc.
Tbo diplomatic corps occupied seats
on the left of the president and the
beads of the departments. The retired
general of the army, the lieutenant-
general oi tne army, tho admiral of the
navy, and tho officers of tho army and
navy who had by namo received the
thanks of Congress, governors and ox-
governors of states and ex-members of
tho senate, took their seats just bohind
the president
At 12:40 p. m., the presidentelect
arose and began delivering his inaugu
ral address which was short and occu
pied only about 15 minutes in delivery.
At its close Mr. Cleveland turned to
the oliief justice and bowing to him
aid : "I am now prepared to take the
osth prescribed by law."
As tho chief justice roso to adrninis
ter the oath the vast assemblage oheer
ed again. Tn presidentelect stood
facing the chief jus lice, with the crowd
on his right. Chief Cleik McKennoy,
of tho supreme court, stood just to the
side of Mr. Cleveland and held tho
Bible- upon which the oath was admin
istered, the president-elect also holding
it with his right hand. Tho Bible used
is a small morocco-covered, gilt-edge
volume, pretty well worn. It is the
Bible which Mr. Cleveland's mother
gave him when ho left home as a young
man, and at his special request the
committeo of arrangements had it in
readiness for the ceremony. The crowd
preserved perfect quiet as tho impres
eive ceremony of administering tho
oath was taking place, but when it was
concluded, and after President Cleve
land laid down the Bible after rever
ently kissing ir, and shook hands with
the chief justice, who was the iirst to
congratulate him, tho cheering was
Jong and loud.

Cleveland on Silver Coinage.
A number of Congressmen favoring
a continuation of the coinago of silver,
recently wroto a letter to President
Cleveland urging him to refrain from
committing himself on the subject.
Tho following is his renlv :
"To the Hon. A. J. Warner and
others, members of the Forty-eighth
"Gentlemen : The letter which I
have had tho honor to receivo from
you invites, and, indeed obliges me to
give expression to somo grave public
necessities, although in advance of the
moment when they would become tho
objects of my official care and partial
responsibility. Your solicitude that
my judgment shall havo been carefully
and deliberately formed is entirely just
and 1 accept tho suggestion in tho same
friendly spirit in which it has been
made. It is also fully justified, by tho
nature of tho financial crisis which, un
der tho operation of the act of Con
gress of Feb. 28, 1878, is now closo at
hand. By a compliance with tho ro
quirements of that law all the vaults of
tho Federal Treasury have been and
are heaped full of silver coins which
are now worth less than 85 per ceut. of
the gold dollar prescribed as "the unit
of value'' in section 14 of tho act of
Feb. 12, 1873, and which, with tho sil
ver certificates representing such coin,
aro receivable for all public dues. Bo
ing thus receivable, whilo also con
stantly increasing in quantity at tho rato
of" $28,000,000 a year, it has followed.
of necessity, that the flow of gold into
the treasury has been steadily diminish
ed. Silver and Bilver certificates havo
displaced and are now displacing gold,
and the sum of gold in the Federal
Treasury now available for the pay
ment of tbu gold obligations of the
United States and for the redemption
of the United States notes called
"greenbacks," if not already encroach
ed upon, is perilously near such en
croachment. These are facts which,
as they do not admit of difforonco of
opinion, call for no argument. Thoy
have been forewarned to us in tho offi
cial reports of every Secretary of tho
Treasury from 1878 till now. They
are plainly affirmed in tho last Decem
ber report of tho present Secretary of
tho Treasury to the Sneaker of tho
present House of Representatives.
They appear in the official documents
of this Congress, and in tho records of
the New York Clearing-IIouse, of
which tho Treasury is a member, and
through which .the bulk of tho receipts
and payments of the Federal Govern
ment and of the country pass.
These being the facts of our present
condition, our danger and our duty to
avert mai uanger would seem to Do
plain. I hope that you concur witb
me and with tho great majority of our
fellow-citizens in deeming it most de
sirable at tho present juncture to main
tain and continue in use tho moss of our
gold coin as well as tho mass of silver
already coined. This is possiblo by a
present suspension of tho purchase and
coinage of silver. I am not aware that
by any other method it is possible. It
is of momentous importance to prevent
the two metals from parting company;
to prevent tho increasing displacement
of gold by the increasing coinage of
silver; to prevent tho disuse of gold in
the custom houses of tho United States
iu tho daily business of tho peoplo ; t'i
revent the ultimate expulsion of gold
y silver. Such a fiuanoial crisis as
these events would certainly precipi
tate wero it now to follow upon a per
iod of commercial depression, would
involvo the people of every city and
every Stato in the Union iu a prolong
ed and disastious trouble. Tho revi
val of business enterprise and prosper
ity so ardently desired and apparently
ho new would be hopelessly postponed.
Gold would bo withdrawn to its hoard
ing places ami An unprtccdented con
traction in tho actual volutin) of our
currency would speedily take place.
Saddest of all, in every workshop, mill,
factory, store and on every railroad and
farm, tho wages of labor, already do-
Dressed, would Riiffrir still fiii-limr ,1n

paid into tho hand of toil. From theso
impending calamities it is surely n most
patrlotio and grateful duty of the ren-
resciitativcs of tho people to deliver

respect, your iciinw-cilizen. Ci.kvki.anh.

streets, tho hotels, tho shops, and the
faces havo a holiday appearance, and
ot course, the festivities on tho fourth
of March aro tho all absorbing topic.
Tho President-elect will arrivo to
morrow night, and will be escorted to
tho Arlington hotel by an appointed
committee. His Hist glimpse of his
future home on the mottling ot tho in
nugiiratioii will ho pleasant, for, from
tho windows of tho Arlington, beyond
trees, fountains, and Lafayette patk,
an excellent view ot tho White House
can bo obtained. At about ten o'clock,
Mr. Cleveland will proceed to tho Ex--
ecutivo mansion, accompanied by
committeo of Senators where ho will
bo introduced to President, and they
will go together, in an open carriage,

a oroaa Biami has been erected on
tho Eastern front of the Capitol, and
there the President elect will tako his
oath of office, and tho President will
deliver his inaugural address. Only
few hundreds will bo nblo to hear
his voice, but tens of thousands can see
for tho first time a Democratic Presi
dent. After tho ceremonies, President
Cleveland and ox-President Arthur
will quickly proceed to tho Wbito
House, and after lunching, will take
their places on a covered stand that
has been erected in. the grounds of the
Presidential mansion, and review the
procession. Tho latter will bo five
miles in length and cmbraco about
twenty-fivo thousand. It will approach
tho Presidential stand from different
routes Its lino of march will include
portions of Pennsylvania avenue, Twcu
ty-seeond Btrect; Connecticut, Iihodo
Island and Massachusetts avenues, and
K street. During tho progress of the
procession, i'cnnsylvania avenue will
be kept entirely clear from curb to
curb, both from vehicles and people,
and the police have orders to arrest
any one incroaching upon tho street.
This will prevent crowding tho lino of
inarch and will add greatly to tho ef
feet of tho spectacle.
If it is a pleasant day, tho pageant
will be grand. The bright uniforms of
the soldiers, tho martial music, tho
thronging crowds, the gay draperies of
bunting, red, white and blue, and the
numerous decorations will make th
panorama one long to be remembered.
Tho ball room is at last in readiness
for its many distinguished guests. At
least ten thousand are expected tot

Thero is somo talk of opening tho

to pay fivo or ten dollars for admisssion
to the regular bill, might at least be
gratified with a sito of tho decorations,
and wander around in the "banquet

Republican Partisanship.
Tho practical defeat of Mr. Randall's
proposition to give tho Secretaty of
tho Treasury tho power to suspend the
coinage of the silver dollar in his dis
cretion "cannot of courso bo fairly re
garded as tho woik of either party. In
the vote Democrats and Republicans
were found on both sides.
But tho proposition came from tho
Democratic side. Tho Republicans
could havo secured its anoption if they
nan cnosen to do so. i ho volo stood
145 against Mr. Randall's motion and
118 in its favor. Of the 144 Repub-
lican members 33 voted against it and
i i ran away and dodged tho vote.
Wo do not desire to removo tho re
sponsibility from tho Democrats who
voted against tho proposition. But
tho Republicans, Mugwumps and case-
hardened, havo proteased intense anx-
ety to suspend tho silver coinage, and
they aro in harmony in the poor excuse
they make for not adopting a method
for doing so when tho opportunity of
fered. The Mugwump 2 imes asserts that

been connected with the general Gov
ernment. I think I ought to make an
exception. I w.s ten days a member
of the Legislature, and I turned my-
thoughts to the search of some good
object in which I could be usolul in
lat position ; and, after much reflec
tion, I introduced a bill which, with
thu general consent of both Houses of
tho Legislature, passed into a law, and
is now a law ot the State, which en
acts that no man in the Stato shall
catch trout in any other manner than
with the ordinary hook and line.
A distillery has lately been put in
operation in Charleston, S. C, for man
ufacturing oil from pine wood. The
material is subjected to intense heat in
sealed retorts, and one cord of it is
said to yield fifteen gallons of turpen
tine, eighty gallons of pine-wood oil,
fifty bushels of charcoal, 150 gallonsof
wood vinegar, ami a uuantitv of in-
flamable gas and vegetable asuhaltttm.
Tho oil alone is worth about " twenty
five cents a gallon, aud is used by
winters and shipbuilders. Apart from
its commercial value, the process is in
teresting as showing how modern
chemistry is ablu to supplant those old
destructive chemical prouecses by which
a single article was produced from a
given material and ail tho rest wasted
or ruined.
The Dcutli that llieApoHllen Died,
Towards the latter end of tho reign of
Nero, St. Peter was crucified but with his
head downward, affirming that ho was un
worthy to suffer in the same posturo In
which his Lord had suffered before him.
St. Paul was beheaded consequently al-
lowed the privilege of a Itoman citizen.
St. Andrew suffered martyrdom, ho was
first ecourged, and seven lictors success
Ively whipped his naked body.
St. James the Urcat was beheaded to
gether with his Informer, who confessed
tho Christian faith and both wero beheaded
at the same place.
St. John tho Evangelist, died a natural
death after being thrown Into a cauldron
of boiling oil. But tho Almighty, who re
served him for further service In tho vine
yard of his son, restrained the heat, as lie
did the fiery furaaco of old; ho was trans,
ported tc an almost desolate Island In tho
Archipelago, called Patmos, and thero
wroto tho book of Revelation, St. John con.
tlnued to labor In the vineyard of his great
master until death put an end to all liU
sufferings, which happened In the begin-
ing of Trajan's reign, in the ninety-elghlh
year of his ago.
St. Philip wus martyred, ho was scourg
cd and afterward being bound, was hanged
against a pillar until dead.
