CALLERS ON THE PRESIDENT.I
A large number of visitors, including
many Senators and Representatives,
called on the President this morning.
Secretary .Borie has actually commenc
ed. the duties 4:if his office. Vice Admi
ral 'Porter was with him at the depart
greater portion of the day.
Postmaster General Cresswell and Sec
retary Cox were at their respective de
partments this morning, and received a
large number of visitors.
The State Department was literally be- •
seiged with visitonito-day. . 1 •
ATTORNEY GENERAL . SWORN IN.
Judge Hoar took the oath of office 'to
day as Attorney General, and Subse
quently, just previous to this
ment of the Supree'Court, Mr. Evarts
presented .him as hid successor, when.
the oath of office was administeied in
the usual form. - I
TOOK THE OAIIt OF OFFICE.
Commissioner oflnternai Reventie De
lano took the oath of office to-day, and
entered formally upon his duties.; The
retiring Commissioner, Mr. Rollins, was
to-day presented with a series of ;com
plimentary resolutions, and made it brief
but happy speech in response.
All the members of the Cabinet' thus
far have entered upon the performance
of their respective duties. As it:deem not
seem probable that the relations of l these
gentlemen will be changed,the preponde
rance of belief is that the Secretary'of the
Treasury will be taken from New York.
There is no certainty, however, as ;to the
locality of the members yet to be ap
pointed. No one doubts that Secretary
Washburne will very soon retire from
the Department of State. Yesterday,
after.he had received the Foreign Minis
ters, Mr. Thornton remained for the
purpose of having some conversation
with him on important business pending
between the United States and the Bri
tish Government, when Mr. Washburne
said be could not enter upon the Consid
eration of matters of moment, as he did
not expect long to remain as Secretary
The Republican Senators hold a eancus.
Ablei , afternooni witb , reterenee tct what
public business shottld be - transacted
during the present session. A 'report
having been made through a fah-com
mittee for its rostriction, southern' Sena
tors insisted that their-section of: coun
try should not be ignored in the ; matter
of legislation. Among other matters re
quiring immediate attention_ were the
bills' introduced by Mr. Sumner to
prevent intimidation of voters and the
bill just introduCed by" Mr. Abbott .for
the settleMent of claims of loyal citizens.
This is substantially the bill introduced
by bim at the last session, bat I which
was not passed, and refers to the ap
pointment of a commission for-that pur
pose.. The Southern Senators also spoke
of the importance of not only prOfecting
loyal people, but by every means of
which Congress was capableof enctittiag
ing them in their efforts to recover
their tbrmer property. The ;caucus
agreed & consider the following meas
ures, but did not agree - upon the order of
business : Bill strengthening the"public

list, that Is not consider the politibal con

session, - received • only seven ; votes.
Wiltsrlf. Thayer, Ed mun ds,Carpenter and

one month, and after that time the Senate
will remain some:time in Executlye ses
