2Tew Yokk. April 30. St Paul's
Church, in Broadway, where "Washington
attended on the morning of his inaugura
tion, was to-day the scene of most impres
sive services. Lone before 9 o'clock, the
hour appointed for the special service of
thanksgiving, the streets in the vicinity of
the church were filled to overflowing with
sightseers eager to gain a glimpse of the
President and his party as they came to at
tend the service and open the second day's
observance of the Centennial celebration.
St Pant's clock had just tolled the hour of

Xccles. zliv, was read. The Te Deum
Laudamus in "E" flat for doable chorus,
by Iw P. Stewart, followed, and the second

after which the Kicene Creed was repeated
ly the clergy and people, followed by a few
selected prayers. The special prayer of
thanksgiving used at St Paul's and by all
the Episcopal churches throughout the coun
try was at ioliows:
O, God, whose name is excellent in all the
eartb, and whose glory is above the heavens,
we bless Thee for the great things Then hast
done and art doing for tbe children of men.

times, and unto Thee we do giTe thanks. Jlore
orcr, we yield Thee most high praise for the
wonderful grace and virtue declared in all those
Thy children who have been the lights of the

everywhere among us and for the preservation
Of the faith: we bless and magnify Thy holy
name, humbly beseeching Thee to accept this
our sacrifice of thanks and praise, through
Jesus Christ, our only Savior aod Redeemer.
BISHOP POTTEK'S ADDRESS.
The Et Eev. Henry C. Potter, Bishop of
New York, then delivered an address, in
the course of which he said:
One hundred years ago there knelt within
these walls a man of whom, above all others in
its history, this nation indebted. An English
man by race and lineage, he incarnated in his
own person and character every best trait and
attribute that have made the Anglo-Saxon
name a glory to its children and a terror to its
enemies throughout tbe world. But he was
not so much of an Englishman that, when tbe
time -came for nim to be so, he was not even
more, an American; in all that he was a patriot
so exalted and a leader great and wise that
what men called him when he came here to be
inaugurated as the first President of the United
States the civilized world has not since then
ceased to call him The Father of His Conn
try. We are here this morning to thank God
for so great a gittto this people, to commemo
rate the incidents of which this day is tbe one
hundredth anniversary, and to recognize the
responsibilities which a century so eventful has
laid upon us.
And we are here of all other places, first of
all. with pre-eminent appropriateness. I know
not how it may be to those to whom all sacred
things and places are matters of equal indiffer
ence, bnt surely to those of ns with whom it is
otherwise it cannot be without profound and
pathetic import that when tbe first President of
the Republic had taken upon him, by virtue of
his solemn oath, pronounced in tbe sight of the
people, tbe burden of its Chief Magistracy, he
turned straightway to these walls, and, kneel
ine n yonder- pew, .asked God i or-strength to
ke nis promise to the' 'nations and his oath to
Hint. This was no unwonted home to him, nor
to a large proportion of those eminent men
who, with him, were associated in framing the
Constitution of tbese United States, children
of the same spiritual mother and nurtured in
the same Scriptural faith and order, they were
wont to carry with them into their public de
liberation something of the same reverent and
conservative spirit which they had learned
wltbin these walls, and ot which the youthful
and ill-regulated fevers of the new-bom repub
lic of ten betrayed its need. He, their leader
and chief, while singularly without cant or
formalism or pretense in his religious habits,
was penetrated, as we know well, by a pro
found sense of the dependence of the republic
upon a guidance other than that of a man and
of his own need of a strength and courage and
wisdom greater than he had in himself.
THEN AXD NOW".
And so we come and kneel at this ancient and
hallowed shrine where once he knelt, and ask
that God wonld graciously vouchsafe them.
Sere in this holy house we find the witness of
that one invisible force which, because it alone
can rule the conscience, is destined one day to
rule tbe world. Out from dens foul with the
coarse passions and coarser rivalries of self
seeking men, we turn aside as from the crowd
and glare of some highway swarming with
pushing and ill-bred throngs, and tawdry and
clamerous with bedizened booths and noisy
speech, in some cool and shaded wood where
straight to heaven some majestic oak lifts its
tall form, its roots imbedded deeper among tbe
unchanging rocks, its upper branches sweeping
the npDer airs, and holding highcommnne with
the stars; and. as we think of him for whom we
here thank God, we say: "Snch an one, in
native majesty he was a ruler wise and strong
and fearless in the sight of God and me, be
cause by the ennobling grace of God be had
learned, first of all to conquer every mean and
selfish and self seeking aim and so to rule him
self." Such was the hero leader, ruler, patriot,
whom we greatfnlly remember on this day.
We may not reproduce his age. his young en
vironment nor him. But none the less may re
joice that once he lived and U d this people, led
them and ruled them prudently "like him, that
Kingly ruler and shepherd of whom the Psalm- -
ist sang --witn aunis nower." uoa gives us the
grace to prize his grand example and as we may
In our more modest measure to produce his
AT THE SUB-TEEASUET.
The service concluded with the reces
sional hymn. The Presidental party was
then escorted by the vestry to the west
porch, where the President was received by
the Centennial Literary Committee. The
Presidental party and invited guests then
proceeded to the sub-Treasury building at
the corner of Wall and Nassau streets,
where the old Federal building stood in
which "Washington took tbe oath of office in
1789. Here th literary exercises were held.
The special stand from which the speakers
addressed the people was built directly in
front of the statue of Washington, which
stood majestically above all.
As soon as all were arranged and quiet
was gained, Mr. Elbridge T. Gerry, Chair
man of the Committee on Literary Exer
cises, stepped to the front of tbe platform
and addressed the assemblage as follows:
Fellow CrrrzEjfs One hundred years ago,
on this spot George Washington, as first Presi
dent ot tbe United States, took bis oath of
office upon tbe Holy Bible. That sacred vol
ume is here to-day. silently attesting tbe basis
upon which our Katiun was constructed and
the dependence of our people upon Almighty
God. In the words, thenar one of the found
ers of the Government "With hearts overflow
ing with gratitude to our sovereign benefactor
Tor granting to us existence, for continuing it
to the present period, and for accumulating on
tis blessings spiritual and temporal through
life, may we with fervor beseech Him so to
continue them as best to promote His glory
nd our welfare."
.Dr. Starrs then invoked the blessing of
e and after that tbe following poem,

DEPEW'S OEATOEICAL EFFOBT.
After the applause that greeted the read
ing of the poem had ceased, the Hon.
Chauncey M. Depew stepped forward to de
liver the oration he bad written for the oc
casion. During the course of his address
We celebrate to-day the Centenary of Our
Nationality. One hundred years ago the United
States began their existence. The powers of
government were assumed by the People of the
Republic, and they became tbe sole source of
authority. Tbe solemn ceremonial of the first
inauguration, tbe reverent oath of Washing
ton, the acclaim of the multitude greeting their
President marked tbe most unique event of
modern times in tbe development of free insti
tutions. Tbe occasion was not an accident, but
a result It was the culmination of tbe work
ing out by mighty forces through many cen
turies of the problem of self-government It
was not the triumph of a system, the applica
tion of a theory, or a redaction to practice of
the abstractions of philosophy. The time, the
country, the heredity -and environment of tbe
people.the tolly of its enemies, and tbe noble
courage of its friends, gave to liberty, after
ages of defeat, of trial, of experiment of par
tial success and substantial gains, this immor
tal victory. Henceforth it had a refuge and
recruiting station. Tbe oppressed found free
homes in this favored land, and invisible armies
inarched from it by mall and telegraph, by
speech and song, by precept and example, to
regenerate tbe world.
Washington was never dramatic, but on
great occasions he not only rose to the full
ideal of the event be became himself the
event One hundred years ago to-day, the pro
cession of foreign Ambassadors, of statesmen
ana Generals, of civic societies and military
companies. which escorted him. marched from
Franklin sqnare to Pearl street through Pearl
to Broad, and up Broad to this spot, but the
people saw only Washington. As he stood
upon the steps of the old Government building
here, the thought must have occurred to him
that it was a cradle of liberty, and as such giv
ing a bright omen for the future. In these
halls in 1735, in the trial of John Zenger, had
been established for tbe first time in its his
tory, the liberty of the press. Here the New
York Assembly, in 1764, made the protest
against the stamp act and proposed the united
colonial action. In this old State house in 1765
tbe Stamp Act Congress, the first and the
father of American Congresses, assembled and
presented to the English Government that vig
orous protest which caused the repeal of the
act aml checked the first step toward the
usurpation which lost tbe American colonies

to the British Empire. Within these walls the
Coneress of the' Confederation had commis
sioned its Ambassadors abroad, and In in
effectual efforts at government had created
the necessity for the concentration of Federal
authority, now to be consummated.
The first Congress of the United States gath
ered in this ancient temple of liberty, greeted
Washington and accompanied him to the bal
cony. The famous men visible about him were
Chancellor Livingston, Vice President John
Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Governor Clin
ton, Roger Sherman, Richard Henry Lee, Gen
eral Knox and Baron Steuben. But be believe
that among the invisible host above him, at
this supreme moment of the culmination in
permanent triumph of the thousands of years
of struggle for self-government wero the
spirits of tbe soldiers of the Revolution who
had died that their countrymen might enjoy
this blessed day, and with them were the
Barons of Rnnnymede and William the Bilent
and Sidney and Russell, and Crom trail and
Hampden, and tbe heroes and martyrs ef lib
erty of every race and age.
As he came forward the multitude in the,
streets, in the windows, and on the roofs sent
nninchi raoturoui shout that Washington
sat down overcome with emotion. As he slow
ly rose and his tall and majestio form again
appeared, tbe people, deeply affected, in awed
silence, viewed the scene. The Chan cellor sol
emnly read to him the oath of office. and Wash
ington, repeating, said: "I do solemnly swear
that I will faithfully execute the office of Pres
ident of tbe United States, and will, to tbe best
of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution of tbe United Btatea," Then he
reverently bent low and kissed the Bible, utter
ing with profound emotion, "So help me, God."
The Chancellor waived his mbes and shouted,
"It is done, long live George Washington, Pres
ident of tbe United States!" "Long Live
Georjre Washington, our First President!" was
the answering cheer of the people, and from
the belfries rang the bells, and from foris and
ships thundered the cannon, echoing and re
peating tbe cry with responding acclaim all
over tbe land, "Long 11 e George Washington,
President of the United States!"
No man ever stood for so much to his coun
try and to mankind as George Washington.
Hamilton, Jefferson and Adams, Madison and
Jay, each represented some of the elements
which formed the Union. Washington em
bodied them alL They fell at times under pop
ular disapproval, were burned in effigy, were
stoned, but he with unerring judgment was
always the leader of the people. Milton said
of Cromwell, "that war made him great; peace
greater." The superiority of "Washington's
character and genius, were more conspicuous
in the formation of our Government and in
nuttiner it on indestructible foundations than
in leading armies to victory and conquering
the Independence of his country.
NO EXAGGERATION POSSIBLE.
Do his countrymen exaggerate his virtues?
Listen to Guizot, tbe historian of civilization:
""Washington did the two greatest things which
in politics It is permitted man to attempt He
maintained by peace the independence of bis
country which he conquered by war. He
founded a free government in tbe name of the
principles of order and by re-establishing their
sway." Hear Lord ErsEina, the most famous
of English advocates: "Yon are the only being
for whom I have an awful reverence." Re
member'the tribute of Charles James Fox, the
greatest Parliamentary lawyer who ever swayed
the British House of Commons: "Illustrious
man, before whom all borrowed greatness sinks
into insignificance." Contemplate the charac
ter of Lord Brougham, pre-eminent for two
generations in every department of human ac
tivity and thought and then impress upon the
memories of your children his deliberate judg
ment: "Until time shall bs no more will a test
of the progress'which our race has made in wis
dom and virtue be derived from tbe veneration
paid to the immortal name ot Washington."
We stand to-day upon the dividing line be
tween the first and second century ot Constitu
tional Government There are no clouds over
head and no convulsions under our feet We
reverently return thanks to Almighty God for
the past, and with confident and hopeful promise
marcn upon sure grounds towaru we xuture.
Tbe spirit of Washington fills the Executive
office. Presidents may not rise to the full
measure of his greatness, but they must not fall
below his standard of public duty and obliga
tion. His life and character, conscientiously
studied and thoroughly understood by coming
generations, will be for them a liberal educa
tion for private life and public station, for citi
zenship and patriotism, for love and devotion
to Union and Liberty. With their inspiring
past and splendid present, the people of these
United States, heirs of 100 years marvelously
rich in all which adds to the glory and great
ness of a nation, with an abiding trust in the
stability and elasticity to their Constitution,
and an abounding faith in themselves, hail the
coming century with hope and 1oy.
Harbison's brief addbess.
President Harrison then, spoke very
briefly. He said:
Fellow Citizens: My task to-day is of a
very exacting character, and makes it quite
impossible that I should deliver an" address
upon this occasion. Foreseeing this, I early
notified your committee that the programme
must contain no address by me.
Tbe selection of Mr. Depew as the orator of
this occasion made further speech not only dif
ficult but superfluous. fApplause. He.has
met the demand of this great occasion on its
own high level. He has brought before us the
incidents and the lessons of tbe first inaugura
tion of Washington. We seem to have been a
part of that admiring and almost worshiping
throng that filled tbese streets 100 years ago.
We have come Into the serious, but always in
spiring presence of Washington. Applause.
He was the incarnation of duty, and he teaches
us to-day the great lesson that those who would
associate their names with events that shall
outlive a century can only do so by high conse
cration to duty. Applause. Self-seeking has
no public observance or anniversary.

and lost her voice entirely and for one month
before she applied to Dr. Smith she was un
able to speak above awhtsper. Mrs. Humbert
tried several doctors and took a large variety of
proprietary medicines, bnt to no purpose.
When sbe applied to Dr. Smith she had given
up all hope, bnt tho doctor encouraged her and
said be oould help her. Dr. Smith gave her
one magnetic treatment of not more than ten
minutes and restored her voice so she could
talk as well as ever, and at the same time cured
all tbe rest of her ailments, and she returned
to her home a well woman., This cure was per
formed without a dose of medicine; all the
doctor did was to apply his bands to tbe afflicted
