le gorgeous with flowerine shrubs, and
then, and not before, will all the possibili
ties for "prettiness" iu 'Washington be iully
apparent and appreciated.
"Within a few years the maisive features
the city will be much enhanced by the erec
tion ot other public buildings which are
now absolutely necessarv. An immense
building for the National Library is now
under way, opposite the east front of the
Capitol. At least half a dozen other large
public buildings are in contemplation.
The "flats" those former plague spots
which were the bugaboo of every Congress
man and visitor, are transformed. It is only
a question of time when they will take the
ehapeot oneot the loveliest parks of the
world, land dotted with little lakes, trees
and shrubbery and flowers on all sides, a
wilderness or loveliness on the banks of one
ot the loveliest rivers of the earth. And
not only that, but the banks of this -river
lor miles around the city will be confined
by sea wall of grauite. that the disintegra
tion of the soil may not waste the shore and
soil the waters.
In the near future the picturesque Talley
of Eock Creek will almost entirely be in
cluded in a grand national park of not less
than 2,000 acres. A bill for the purpose of
acquiring the land will almost undoubtedly
pass the next Congress.
Contrary to all expectations, a zoological
garden has been provided for the closing
luiurs of the sitting Congress, and, if the
President's veto does not interfere, steps will
be promptly taken to acquire 200 acres of
the Bock Creek Valley, a portion of the
future national park, construct lairs and
cages for animals and stock them with a
collection equal, if possible, to the now un
rivalled collections of Regent's Park and
the Thcirgarten in London and Berlin.
A grand boulevard from Arlington to
Mount Vernon is another consummation
certain to be enjoyed i cry soon. It will
pass through a country lovely in its view
and diversity of landscape, with the broad,
"winding Potomac in view nearly every steo
ot the distance. A drive alone: the upper
Potomac,oc the "conduit road," greatly im
proved and beautified, will be another of
the lovely suburban drives which will very

soon become a feature of the city. Eight
miles from Georgetown is "Cabin John
Bridge," the greatest solid stone arch in the
world, spanning a deep, rocky ravine, and
carrying under its roadway the entire
water supply of the National Capital. Eight
miles farmer are the Great Falls of the Po
tomac, such a wild and fascinating place as
one would not think possible away from a
volcanic country. Down the river are in
numerable lovely spots, one of the most at
tractive being the old village of Occoco

Suburban hotel"; have already sprung up
at many of these places, but hairing scarcely
a suggestion of the splendid "road houses"
and river reports which will be erected as
the capital grows in population.
Of institutions which will have an im
measurable cflect upon the national intel
lectual and aesthetic development, a national
university, a national academy of fine arts,
and a national gallery of art, are certain to
come in the near future as a natural jesnlt
of a refinement of the popular mind and the
inclination of an ever increasing number of
citizens to cultivate something else than the
love of money. "When the first proposals
were made for the establishment of zoological
gardens, a tremendous row was kicked up
in Congress against the Government's going
into the "show business," but yesterday the
bill appropriating 5200,000 for "a collection
of monkeys" passed with scarcely a dis
sentme voice. This is encouraging.
Hitherto the members have been satisfied
with the stuffed animals aud birds of the
museum. Now they want the real live
animals. Most of the members are now'as
pleased with a chromo or a plaster cast as
with works of art in oil and marble. Alter
a litUe they will want the genuine article
in this as well as in monkeys, and -we shall
have a gallery of art winch shall be rich in
works of the gieatest modern artists, if it
be not possible to procure those ot other
days. E. W. L.

Of Presidenlal Inaugurations and
Some of the Historic Scenes.
In the
Days of Washington,
Jefferson and
Some Prcsidental inaugurations have
been more interesting than others, nor has
the method of procedure been in all cases
the same. The most notable of all was the
first inauguration of "Washington, at Uew
York on April 30, 1879, hut so much lias
been written about it of late in connection
with the coming centennial observance that
the occasion requires brief notice here, Con
gress had designated March 4 as the day,but
the inclement weather and state of the roads
prevented that body from assembling and
putting the new government iu action until
the date mentioned. "Washington left Mount
Vernon on the lGth of April, and after a tri
umphal procession through, the States
reached Sew York on the 24th and was in
augurated on the 30th in the Federal Hall
in the presence of a vast multitude of spec
tators. The second notable inauguration occurred
on March 4, 1797, in the hall of the House
of Kepresentatives at Philadelphia. John
Adams had been chosen President to suc
ceed Washington. The hall was crowded
to its utmost Capacity, and when Adams en
tered without ceremony, Washington, who
was seated in the center of the company,
arose and extended his hand in the midst of
an impressive silence. Adams in a letter
to his wife wrote thus: "A solemn scene it
was, indeed; and it was made more affecting
to me by the presence of the general, whose
countenance was as serene and unclouded
as the day. He seemed to enjoy a triumph
over me. Methought I heard' him say,
'Aye, I am fairly out, and you are fairly in.
See which otus will be the happiest' Chief
Justice Ellsworth administered the oath
with great energy. All agreed that, taken
altogether, it was the sublimest thing ever
exhibited in America." After the recep
tion, Washington entered his carriage and
set out for Mount Vernon, only too happy
to tie rid ol the cares of omcial liie.
The inauguration of Thomas Jefferson,
March 4, 1801, was a notable affair, since it
ushered in a new dyuasty and a new era
the Republican dynasty and the days of
Jcflersonian simplicity. Iu the election ot
1800 the federal party had been routed, and
the Republican pjrty had won. The city
was lull of strangers, we are told, drawn
thither to witness the famous tie-contest in
the House of Representatives between Jef
ferson and Burr, who had received equal
numbers of votes in the Electoral College.
John Adams, the defeated candidate, took
bis defeat hardly, and did not wait to induct
his antagonist into office.
All through the night, to use the words'of
Mr. Parton: "He had been preparing for
that precipitate flight from the capital
which gave the last humiliation to his
rnrty. He had not the couftesy to stay in
Washington for a few hours and give the
eclat of his presence to the inauguration of
his successor. Tradition repeats that he
ordered his carriage to be at the door of the
White House at midnight, and we know
that before dawn of March 4 he had left
Washington forever." There were other
Presidents who followed thirungracious ex
ample. "Of the ceremonies at Washington,"
says another writer, "the records, of the
time give us the most irre2gre accounts.
Boswell, the father df interviewers, had no
leprcscntatives in America then, and jour
nalism was content to print little more than
the inaugural address.
The accidental presence of an English
traveler affords us the only account of the
manner of Jefferson's approach to the Capi
tol that morning. He had no establishment
in Washington; Jack Epps, his son-in-law,
was completing somewhere in Virginia a
purchase for a coach and horses price 1,
600 with which the President-elect honed
to contend triumphantly with the yellow
mud in Washington. But as neither" coach
nor horse had arrived he went to the Capitol
in his usual way. "His dress," as our
traveler, John Davis, tells us, "was of
plain cloth and he rode on horseback to the
Capitol without a single cuard or even a
servant in his train, dismounted without as
sistance, and bitched the bridle of his horse
to the palisades." The historian Hildreth
gives still another account indeed, the de
scriptions of this third inauguration varv
so much as greatly to discredit the value of
cotemporary history.
Hildreth says: "Escorted by a body of
military and a procession of citizens he pro
ceeded to the Capitol, where the Senate had
met in special session in obedience to a call
issued by Adams some weeks before, Burr,
already sworn in as Vice President, gave up
the chair to Jefferson, taking a seat at his
right band. Un bis left band sat Chief
Justice Marshall, ready to administer the
oath of office. The chamber was well filled,
a large number of members of the late
House being present, to which body Jeffer
son just before it adjourned had sent a no
tice of his intended public inauguration.
But the absence of the late Speaker as well
as of the late President did not fail to ex
cite remark." Neither of these writers
seems to have consulted Baynor's "Life of
Jefferson" published in 1882,'under the au
thority of the family. In this book appears
an authoritative account of the affair by an
eye witness which flatly contradicts the ac-,
counts given above. Says this witness:
"The sun shone bright on that morning.
The Senate had convened. Those members
of the Republican party who remained at
the seat of government, the Judges of the
Supreme Court, some citizens and gentry
from the neighboring country, and about a
dozen ladies made up the assembly in the
Senate chamber who were collected to wit
ness the inauguration. Mr. Jefferson had
not yet arrived. He was seen walking from
his lodgings, which were not far distant, at
tended by five or six gentlemen who were
his fellow-lodgers. Soon afterward he en
tered, accompanied by a committee of the
Senate, and bowing to the Senate, who arose
to receive him, he approached a table on
which the Bible lay, and took the oath,
which was administered to him by the Chief
Justice. He was their conducted by the
President of the Senate to his chair,
which stood on a platform raised some steps
above the floor. After a pause of a moment
or two he arose and delivered that beautifdl
inaugural address which has since become
so popular and celebrated, with a clear dis
tinct voice, in a firm and modest manner.
On leaving the chair he was surrounded by
friends, who pressed forward with eager
congratulations, and some, though not
many, of the more magnanimous of his op-1
ponents, most of whom, however, silently
left .the chamber. The new President
walked home with two or three of the gen
tlemen who lodged in the same house. At
dinner he took his accustomed place at the
bottom of the table, his new station not
eliciting from his Democratic friends any
new attention or courtesy."
At Jefferson's second inauguration. March
4, 1805, was held the first inauguration ball
of which we have any account, although
the President does not seem to have at
tended. The inauguration of James Madison on
Saturday, March 4, 1809, departed widely
from the' simplicity of the two next pre
ceding occasions. .Madison had been Secre
tary of State under Jefferson, and. his late
associates of the Cabinet accompanied him
to the Capitol. At 1CK30 A.xa procession
of citizens headed by the volunteer troops
of the District, marched to thp President
elect's house, where it was joined by the l
latter anil ats friends; the whole body then,
at 1130, proceeded to the Capitol and en
tered the hall of the House of Representa
tives at noon. Jefferson was there awaiting"
them, and with him a brilliant concourse
members of both Houses, the Supreme
Court, the diplomatic corps and many other
spectators. In their presence Madison trjrtk
the oath of office and was then escorted
back to his residence, where, with Mrs.
Madison, he received the congratulations of
his lellow citizens. Mr. Osle Taylor, in his
"Reminiscences." savs that Parke Custis
us3 relate that in returning from the
ceremony at tne uapitoi on jiurscunuis. ue
met ex-President Jefferson mounted and en
tirely unattended, aud that they rode down
Pennsjlvania avenue together. There was
a grand ball in the evening, attended by the
President, the ex-President and 400 guests.
James Monroe also reached the White
House by way of the Cabinet, having served
as Secretary of State. At his inauguration,
Tuesday, March 4, 1817, the exercises were
slightly varied; no military display was
seen, but instead a cavalcade of citizens at
tended the carriage in which rode the Presi
dent and Vice President-elect. The party
reached the Capitol at noon, and at the same
time the outgoing President and his Cabi
net entered. A procession was formed at
once and moved to the east portico, where
Monroe delivered his inaugural address to
an audience of 10,000 people. He tbok the
oath amid salvos of artillery and the shouts
of the people, and was escorted back to his
awelling, where, with Mrs. Monroe, he held
a reception, Mr. and Mrs. Madison at the
same time receiving at the White House.
A grand ball in the evening at Davis's
Hotel closed the ceremonies.
John Quincy Adams also came to the
Presidency in the regular line of succession
as Secretary of State. He had been elected
by the House after an exciting struggle,
and the city was full of visitors, who had
been attracted by the contest Friday,
March 4, 1825, is remembered as the most
beautiful day of the season. On this occa
sion the Marshal of the District of Colum
bia first appeared as leading the procession,
which was composed of both military and
citizens. It met the President-elect at his
residence on F street, nearly opposite the
present Ebbitt House, and escorted him to
the Capitol, where he was introduced to the
assembled Congress by President Monroe,
and there read his inaugural and took the
oath. On the conclusion of the ceremonies
he was escorted back to his residence, the
usual reception following. Ex-President
Monroe also returned to the White House
and received, and in the evening there was
a ball at Carusi's Assembly Rooms.
The next inauguration was on March 4,
1829, that idol of the people and antipathy
of Henry Clay Andrew Jackson. Jackson
left the Hermitage, in Tennessee, about
January 15, sailed down the Cumberland by
steamer to the Ohio, and up that stream to
Piltsburg. He arrived in Washington on
February 1G, and was escorted to the In
dian Queen Hotel, the present:National,
where he remained until the day of his in
auguration, which came on Wednesday. It
was a warm, balmy day, and the city was
crowded with strangers, among whom the
common people predominated. A vast
company escorted the President-elect to the
capitol, where the usual ceremonies were
observed, marked, however, by the absence
of President Adams, who, like his father,
refused to attend. Jackson, breaking upon
established custom, went at once to the
White House and held a crowded reception.
The affair has been thus described: "A
profusion of refreshments had been pro
vided, orange punch by barrels full made,
but as the waiters opened the door to bring
it out a rush would be made, the glasses
broken, pails of liquor upset, and the most
painful confusion prevailed. To such a de
gree was this carried that wine and ice
cream could not be brought out to the ladies,
and tubs of punch were taken out of the
lower story window into the garden to head
off the crowd from the room. On such an
occasion it was extremely difficult to pre
serve order, but it was mortifying to see
men with boots heavy with mud standing
on the damask-covered chairs and tramping
around the room." Ex-President Adams
retired to a house on Meridian- Hill which
he had rented from Commodore Porter, and
in which he continued to reside for several
months. The second inauguration of Jack
son, Monday, March 4. 1833. was marked
"by far less ceremony. The President en
tered me nail at noon, renewed tne oath,
made a short address, and returned to the
White House.
Of the inauguration of Martin Van Buren,
K. P. Willis, who was present, has given
this account: "The procession, consisting of
the Presidents and their official families,
escorted by a small volunteer corps, arrived
soon after 12; the General and Mrs. Van
Buren were in the constitutional phaeton,
drawn by four grays, and as it entered the
gate they both rode uncovered. Descending
lrom the carriage at the foot of the steps, a
passage was made for them through the
dense crowd, and the tall, white head of the
old chieitain, still uncovered, went steadily
on through the agitated mass, marked by
its peculiarity from all around it The
crowd of diplomats and Senators in the rear
of the colonnade made way and the ex
President and Mr. Van Buren advanced
with uncovered heads. A murmur of feel
ing rose up from the moving mass below,
and the infirm old man, emerging from a
sick chamber, which his physicians thought
it impossible he could leave, bowed to the
people and, still uncovered in the cold air,
took his seat beneath the portal. Mr. Van
Buren then advanced, and, with a voice re
markably distinct and 'With great dignity,
read his address to the people. The air was
elastic and the day still, and it is sup'posed
that 20,000 people heard him from the ele
vated position distinctly." In the evening
there was a ball at Carusi's, attended by
both Presidents.
William Henry Harrison, Mr. Thurlow
Weed tells us in his "Reminiscences," was
a feeble, broken down man at the time ot
his election. "He was far advanced in
years, and the usual infirmities of age
were aggravated by the privations and suf
ferings of an arduous course of life during
his Ion? service in the field. The journey
from bis home onthe banks of the Ohio to
Washington, amid the rigors of a severe
winter, bore heavily upon him; and when
he reached the seat ot government, about
the middle of February, he had the appear
ance of a confirmed invalid. He reached
there in a driving snowstorm. A large num
ber of citizens met him at the depot, and he
walked in procession with his head uncov
ered, down the avenue to Gadsby's Hotel,
exposed to the falling snow, in the most im
prudent manner.
"The state ot his health was not improved
in the interval between the time of his ar
rival and his inauguration. The ceremonies
on that occasion (Thursday, March 4, 1841)
were uncommonly elaborate and fatiguing,
and he became s6 exhausted that on his ar
rival at the Capitol he was taken into the
Vice President's room, aud had his temples
bathed in brandy preparatory to taking the
oath of office. The weather was inclement
and boisterous, and a cold northeast wind
blowing with much force. He stood on the
eastern front of the Capitol in delivering
his inaugural address, and his infirm con
dition was the subject of sorrowful remark
of those who were near enough to observe
his weakness and prostration."
The President-elect on this occasion rode
to the Capitol on horseback, escorted by the
District .Militia and Philadelphia Grays.
Van Buren, whose party had been defeated
in the election of General Harrison, .fol
lowed ungracious precedents and took no
part in the ceremonies. After deliverinc
bis address, Harrison retired to the White L
xiouse anu neiu a reception. He also ap
peared at several balls in the evening
eiven by the triumphant Whies. A month
later President Harrison lay 'dead in the
White House. Congress was not sitting.
Vice President Tyler was at his eeat lii
Williamsburg, Va. Iu this emergency the
members of the Cabinet, headed by Daniel
Webster, then. Secretary of State, took
charge of the Government and sent an ex
press to President Tyler, who arrived on
the 6th, and the same day quietly took the
oath before Judge Cranch, of the District
The election of James K. Polk in 1844
marked the return of the Democracy to
power The Presidentelect arrived in this
eity February 13, 1845, and rode to the
National,Hotel, where he spent the time in
conference witlt party leaders and in giving
receptions to citizens until Tuesday, March
4. The weather on this day was wet and
lowering, nevertheless there was o grand
procession, headed by Marshal John M,
Calla, with President Tyler and Mr. Polk
together in an open carriage. After the
usual ceremouies at the Capitol the Presi
dent returned by a circuitous route to
the White House. Ex-President Tyler left
Washington on the 11th for his home in
Virginia. ,
JSZachary Taylor, the popular military
hero, was inaugurated on Monday, March 5,
1849. He reached this citv on the 23d of
February, aud was escorted by a large and
enthusiastic company to Willard's Hotel.
On the 27th he paid a formal visit of cour
tesy to President Polk, and was entertained
at dinner. On the 28th he was received by
the citizens of Georgetown, and attended a
reception given in his honor by Speaker
Winthrop, and on the 1st of March was
given a reception at the White House. The
5th dawned wet and unpromising, yet the
procession to the Capitol is described as one
of the most brilliant and imposing that had
ever been witnessed here. It was led by
Hon. Richard Wallace, later Mayor of the
city. '
The President-elect rode in the historic
phaeton, which was drawn by four handsome
grays, iu company with Speaker Winthrop
and the Mayor of Washington. The pro
cession halted at Irving's Hotel, and was
joined by President Polk, who had left the
White House on Sunday, March 4, lestjan
friendly critas should say he had held on to
his great office after the constitutional limit
had expired. The outgoing and incoming
Presidents entered the Senate chamber arm-in-arm,
and the latter proceeded to the east
portico, where the usual ceremonies were
observed. President Tavlor then returned
to the White JSouse. and ex-President Polk
to Irving's Hotel, and in the evening took
boat for Richmond.
Three balls were held that evening, the
principal one in a temporary building on
Judiciary Square, where, it is said, tallow
from the impromptu chandeliers feel on the
dress coats of the gentlemen and the un
adorned shoulders of the ladies, to the great
discomfiture of both. The President at
tended all three. Taylor died July 9, 1850,
and Vice President Fillmore quietly took
the oath of office before Judge Cranch, of
the District Court, attended by the members
of the late Cabinet and a committee of the
two Houses of Congress. "President Fill
more," says 3enton, in his '.Thirty Years'
View," "without delivering any inaugural
address, bowed and retired, and the cere
mony was at an end."
No social festivities attended the inaugu
ration of Franklin Pierce on Friday, March
4, 1853, as the President-elect had 'recently
lost a favorite child in a railway accident.
James Buchanan, who succeeded Pierce,
left Wheatlands, his country home, in Lan
caster, Pa., at 8 a. M. on February 25, and
reached this city at 5 p. m. the same day,
and was escorted to the National Hotel. His
inauguration on Wednesday, March 4, 1857,
was notable for the fine mifitary display un
der General Quitman, there being 24 mili
tary organizations in line, seven political
clubs and the. fire department of the Dis
Abraham Lincoln arrived here at 650 on
the morning of the 23d of February, 18G1,
and was met at the station by the Hon. E.
B. Washburne, of Illinois, and conveyed
in a close carriage to Willard's Hotel,
where Senator Seward was waiting to re
ceive him. His inauguration on the 4th of
March following was notable in several re
spects. It marked the triumph of.a new
party, and it was the first time in our his
tory that it was deemed necessary to employ
military to defend the person ot the Presi-dent-elect.
The carriage in which he rode with Presi
dent Buchanan was escorted by marshals
and mounted dragoons, detailed from the
regular army, in ranks so deep that a hos
tile shot could with difficulty have pene
trated the Column. Before the platform on
the portico where he was to stand in deliver
ing his inaugural, a high fence had been
erected, and an inclosed avenue ot boards
was built from the place where he would
alight to the portico. The occasion was also
marked by the largest and most imposing
procession which the city had yet seen.
Scarcely a month alter his second inaugura
tion Lincoln fell by the assassin's bullet,
and the next morning, April 15, 18G5, at 10
o'clock, amid the mourning of a nation,
Andrew Johnson, the Vice President, took
the oath of office before Chief Justice Chase
and in the presence of the members of the
late Cabinet.
The inauguration of Ulysses S. Grant, on
Thursday, March 4, 1869, was marked by
