Inauguration of President Lincoln.
Many of the friends of Mr. Lincoln ap
prehend difficulty with regard to his in
auguration on the 4th of March next, and
consequently a large force from the North
will be at Washington for the purpose of
seeing that the Southern secessionists do
not assassinate him. For our own part,
we have never felt any danger. Such an
attempt would at once annihilate every
man eigaged in it. Mr. Lincoln will
have plenty of friends to protect him from
bodily harm, and we can assure those who
may feel a little doubtful of Mr. Lincoln
not being willing to risk his life to assume
the Presidential Chair, that the Rail Split
ter knows no danger. He has passed
through many a fearful battle, and he
will be on hand, on the 4th of March
next, to take charge of the reigns of gov
ernment. The Constitution prescribes no
particular day or hour, and no form or
ceremony for tire inauguration of a Presi
dent, except the oath of office. "Before
he enters on the execution of his office, he
shall take the following oath or affirma
tion." Art. 11., sec. 1, par. 7. No time
or manner is prescribed. The oath may
be administered on any day, or in. any
place. It is very impressive and becoming
that it should be administered by a high
judicial oftcer, publicly, in the face of an
immense multitude, and in connection
with appropriate civic and military pomp.
It would- be a matter for regret—it might
seem mortifying to the President elect—
to enter on his duties without these cir
cumstances. But any Judge, Commis
sioner, Notary or Magistrate, authorized
by the laws of the United States to ad
minister oaths, has it in his power to
"inaugurate" the President, in any city
or town in the Union, and from the mo
ment that the oath is taken he is vested
with authority to exercise the powers of
his high office immediately upon the close
of his predecessor's term. Resisting his
inauguration by violence is as hopeful a
business as fighting his shadow. There is
only one force that can prevent his en
trance upon his office. If the two Houses
of Congress should resolve themselves into
a mob, to prevent the counting and decla
ration of the electoral votes, there might
be a difficulty in executing the people's
will. But we shall not believe that this
is morally possible until we see it done.
Organization of the Legislature.
The Legislature of Pennsylvania as
sembled this day. EMMA W. DAVIS,
of Venango county, was elected Speaker
of the House, receiving all the Republi
can votes. Mr. DAVIS is a clever gentle.
man, and will make an excellent presiding
In the Senate ROBERT M. PALMER, of
Schuylkill county, was re-elected. It is
merely necessary for us to say that Mr.
PALMER will make an excellent presiding
officer. He is one of the ablest men in
that body, and will do credit to himself
and to the body over which he presides.
RUSSEL ERRETT, Esq., of the Pittsburg
Gazette, haS also been re-nominated for
Chief Clerk, an office he filled last year to
the satisfaction of all who were in any
wise connected with him.
E. H. RAUCH, Esq., of the Mauch

for Chief Clerk of the House. He made
an accommodating and active officer, dur•
ing the past year, and will not fail to give
LET IIE; HEAR FROM THE G OVERNORS
During the first two weeks of January
ensuing, the Legislatures of the Free
States of Maine, Massachusetts, New
York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana,
Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, lowa and
Minnesota, assemble to transact the busi
ness of their several peoples. The Execu
tives of these mighty commonwealths of
the Union-loving North will each be re
quired to communicate with the Legisla
tures thereof at an early day after their
assemblage. We have faith in all these
Governors. We have faith that they are
all true to the Union and to Liberty, now
and forever I Their voices should be a
unit against secession and traitors. Let
them speak out manfully.
The Cause of Panics.
Panics ordinarily, not always, result
from a want of confidence. The present
Panic has this paternity. But it is not
from a a want of confidence in the material
resources of the country—which were
never so abundant—but from a want of
confidence in the patriotism and stamina
of the Administration. The people have
no faith in Buchanan or his advisers.—
They deem him wholly inadequate to the
exigencies of the hour, not only because
of his imbecility, but because of his crimi
nal sympathy and affiliation with those
who, by moving for the dissolution of the
Union, disturb the commercial equanimi
ty of the country. With an "Old Hicko
ry" in the Executive, Chair, there would
be no Panic; because, with such a man to
hold traitors to their allegiance, and States
to their place in the Union, there would
be no fear of a violent severance of the
bonds which bind the Confederacy to
gether, nor of an embargo upon the open
channels of trade and commerce.
Position of South Carolina
If there is any one person in the North
so great a fool as to be frightened be
cause South Carolina declared herself out
of the Union on the 20th of December,
1860, the Boston Traveler begs leave to
remind him that, on the 17th of Decem
ber, 1832, South Carolina enacted an or•
dinance to nullify a law of the United
States, provided that law should be un
repealed on the Ist of February, 1833,
and that South Carolina neither nullified
it nor lett the Union. Because a State
says she •is out of the Union, it does not
follow that she is out of it. The act is
an act of disunion, but it does not dissolve
the Union. The Uoion exists to-day ex
actly the same as it existed when South
Carolina, the other day, passed the ordi
nance of secession, and South Carolina's
vote to the contrary has no more dissolved
the Union, than it was dissolved in 1780,
by the British conquest of that State.
The country got South Carolina back
then in spite of herself and her conquer
ors, and the grandsons of the Americans
of those days will show that they have not
THE LATE DEFALCATION.—The New
York "Herald" says, "the budget em
braced in the robbery, the whole of which
was stolen, will exceed three millions of
dollars," and gives the following list of
them, as held in trust, by the Secretary
of the Interior, for the Indian tribes :
Kentucky 5 183,000
Louisiana 6 37,000
Maryland 6 , 131,611
Missouri 15i. 63,000
Missouri 6 484,000
North Carolina 6 162,000
Ohio. 6 150,000
Pennsylvania 5 96,000
South Carolina... ...... 6 125,000
Tennessee 6 268,000
Tennessee. 6 143,000
United States 6 251,330
Virginia 5 796,800
THESE is good foundation for the opin
ion that the Administration, and many
connected with it, prefer the destruction
of the Government to an exposure which
a new Administration will give to the
country. Monstrous robberies, like that
in which Secretary FLOYD is implicated,
it is feared, have been numerous, and if
brought to light, will consign these trait
ors to eternal ignomy.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Tuesees, January, 1, 1861.
This .being the day appointed by the Consti
tution for the meeting of the General Assem
bly of Pennsylvania, the members elect of the
House of Representatives met in their chamber,
and at twelve o'clock
.were called to order by
Mr. E. H. RAUCH, Chief Clerk of the last House
The Rev. Mr. CArret, of the 0. S. Presbyte
rian church in this city, delivered the follow
ing solemn and impressive prayer, viz :
Aunt - um GOD Thou whose name alone is Je
hovah and who art the Most High over all
the earth, we worship Thee as the King im
mortal, eternal and invisible ; glorious in holi
ness, fearful in praises, doing wonders. Mer
cifully lift upon us the light of thy counte
nance and grant us Thy peace.
We confess, with shame and confusion of
face—our manifold sins and iniquities. But
we rejoice to know that there is forgiveness
with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared. Have
mercy upon us therefore for the sake of Thy
dear Son and blot out all our transgressions.
O satisfy us early with Thy mercy, that we may
rejoice and be glad all our days. .
And now we pray Thee to bless these, our
Legislators. Bless them in their own persons
and in their families. Enable them. to discharge
faithfully those soleron•and important duties
which they are assembled here to perform.—
Give them a spirit of wisdom and understand
ing ; a spirit of counsel and might ; a spirit of
knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. May
they all act as those who shall give account not
only to their constituents, but. unto Thee,
Thou great searcher of hearts. May they re
member the solemn lesson of Thy Providence
during the last session, when one of their
number, and he the highdst honored, was
summoned from these Halls to stand before
Thy judgment seat.
May Thy benediction rest upon our State, and
we beseech Thee to bless our whole country.—
Behold 0 Lord, the land mourneth. For the
divisions among us there be great searching of
hearts. Many there be that say who will shew
us any good. But our help is in the Lord God
who made the Heavens and the earth. Be
Thou a wall of fire round about us. Appoint
salvation for bulwarks. Let violence not be
heard in our gates nor the sound of war in our
borders. 0 God, thou bast given us a pleasant
land, a goodly heritage. We have heard with
our ears and our fathers have told us what works
Thou didet for us in their days and in the times
of old. Wilt Thou not return unto the many
thousands of Israel ? Heal all our divisions,
and may we dwell together as brethren in unity.
Give to our National Congress, to all our State
Legislatures and Conventions, to follow after the
things which make for peace. May Judah not
vex Ephraim nor Ephraim Judah. But may we
all be perfectly joined together in the same
mind and in the same judgment, and may we
provoke one another only to love and to good
And now for the sake of the Lord Jesus
Christ, may Grace, Mercy and Peace be multi
plied unto us ail from God the Father through
the Eternal Spirit.
Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be
Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be
done on earth as it is done in Heaven. Give unto
us daily our daily bread, and forgive our tres
passes as we forgive those who trespass against
us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver
us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, the
Power and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen.

H. HILL conducted the Speaker elect to his
Upon taking the Speaker's chair, Mr. DAVIS
addressed his fellow-numbers as follows :
REPRESENTATIVES OF PENNSYLVANIA :
I return you
my thanks for the high honor done me in
the election as your Speaker. Since I came
among you one year ago, my bigheat ambition
has been to discharge my duty in such a man
ner as not only to receive, but deserve and
merit, your respect and confidence. That I
have succeeded even beyond my proudest hopes,
this day's proceedings amply prove ; and I can
only say now, that I will endeavor eo to discharge
the duties of the position in which your kind
ness has placed me, that our proceedings may
be as orderly and decorous as our organization
has been hopeful and encouraging.
Since the adjournment of the Legislature,
death has been among us. Our able and be
loved Speaker has been stricken down in the
days of his strength and his usefulness. The
best eulogy that I can pronounce on the char
acter of Was. C. A. LAWRENCE, is to point with
pride to his youth, to the position which he
occupied in this House, and to his memory en
shrined in the hearts of his fellow-members
The amiable and accomplished J. W. COULTER,
too, has fallen by the hand of death. And
within a few days of our coming . together HEN
RY K. STRONG, one of Pennsylvania's noblest
sons, whose good qualities of head and heart
are known to all, has been called away. They
need no eulogy from me. May God comfort
their bereaved friends.
I need only say that I deeply feel the re•
sponabilities of the position to which I have
been chosen: But I will endeavor to discharge
its duties uninfluenced by any other considera
tion than my deliberate convictions of right.—
I ask your indulgence and forbearance, your
co-operation and support. I know too well
the character of the members of this House to
apprehend much difficulty Our poeitiou is one
of oo ordinary importance. Peonsi lvania, in
the vastness of her resources, the amount of
her wealth, and the number, intelligence, in
dustry and integrity of her citizens, has few
equals as a State. Her interests arc committed
to our charge.
The eyes of her three millions of people are
upon us, and our actions will be closely watch
ed and severely scrutinized. Let us act not
only as the Representatives of a free people, but
as lux who appreciate the honor and feel the
responsibilities of our positions. WI ile reck
less madness tales the councils of seine of our
sister States, and treason raises its bloody
hand within their borders to strike down the
National. Government, the great heart of
Pennsylvania beats responsive now, as it ever
has done, to "the music of the Union." [Ap
plause.] I believe that I speak the sentiments
of her entire people, when I say that the Old
Keystone State, to the extent of her power,
will maintain the Constitution and enforce the
laws. [Applause.] Her voice is, and always has
been "TEE UNION MUST AND EHALL Bs Pee
smtv.ED." [Applause. ] if there - is any law upon
her statue books which can be in any way tor
tured into an excuse for treason, I would advise
its immediate repeal ; [applause] and that she
should then deny, in her sovereign capacity,
the right of any State to secede front this gov
The verdict of the people in the recent elec
tions has been for the Constitution and the Un
ion, and that verdict must be respected and
enforced at all hazards. [Applause.] Penn
sylvania has suffered ; her interests have beeh
trampled upon. There is no State in the
Union that has more just cause of complaint.
She has sought her redress through the ballot
box, in a Constitutional manner. She has set
her seal of condemnation on a wicked and im
becile Administration; and I, for one, am now
ready to sustain that verdict, if my country
requires it, with the blessing of God, with my
I again thank you for the honor you have
conferred upon me, and I promise you that all
the abilities I possess will be faithfully exer
cised in the discharge of duty.
The SPEAKER requested the gentleman from
Montgomery (Mr. HILL) to administer the oath
of office, which was done accordingly.
The list of members was then called and they
severally took the oath of office.
Mr. 'SHAFER submitted the following
Which was agreed to.
Resolved, That a committee of two be appoint

ganized and readyto proceed to business.
Messrs.SELLFER and SMITH (Baks) were ap

Mr. BYRNE asked and obtained leave to re

voted for Mr. HILL.
Mr. SELTZER submitted the following,
Which was adopted.
Resolved, That a committee of three be ap

with a similar committee appointed by the
Senate (if the Senate shall appoint such com
mittee,) to wait upon the Governor and inform
him that the General Assembly is now duly or
ganized and ready to receive any communica
tion be may have to make.
Messers. Seltzer. Broadhead and Dl'Gonigal
were appointed said committee.
Mr. RIDGWAY submitted the following :
Resolved, That the regular sour for the meet
ing of this House be fixed at 11 o'clock A. M.,
and the hour for adjournment at 1 o'clock
Mr. WILSON moved to amend by adding the
words "until otherwise ordered," which was
accepted as a modification, and the resolution
as modified was then adopted.
Ur. RANDALL submitted the following
joint resolution :
Resolved, By the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives that it is the right and duty of every
citizen of this Commonwealth to aid and assist
in the execution of the Constitution of the
United States and the Acts of Congress, passed
to carry it into effect.
Tuat this right and this duty extend to every
public officer of this Commonwealth, Legisla
tive, Executive, Judicial or Municipal.
That any Act of Assembly which interrupts,
impedes, limits, embarrasses, delays or post.
pones the exercise of such right and duty, is
a plain and direct violation of the said Constitu
tion, and the oaths of office and allegiance
taken to support it.
Resolved, That the provision contained in Ait
4, Sec. 2, clause 3, of the Constitution of the
United States, securing to the owners of fugi
tives from service of lab..r the right to the de
livery up to them of the said fugitives, is sacred
and inviolate, and any legislative infraction of
this provision is therefore unconstitutional and
Resolved, That it is expedient to repeal the
34. 4th, sth and 7th sections of the Act enti
tled, "An Act to pn vent sidnappiog, preserve
"the public peace, prohibit the exercise of cer

Mr. SHEPPARD. Ido not desire to create
any unnecessary delay in regard to this matter,

resolution as it stands brings up the matter
very speedily,- These papers are brought here
wten the House is not fully organized. It may
not be czawenient for the House to proceed to
the consideratioa of this matter on next Thurs
Mr. HILL. Next Tuesday is the day fixed for
the election of a United States Senator, and
that business would probably be interfered with,
should that day be assigned for the appoint
ment of this committee. I hope the gentle
man will allow this matter to come before the
House as early as possible. I think Thursday
next should to fixed as that day.
Mr. SHEPPARD. Either the gentleman from
Montgomery (1111..11111) is mistaken, or I am, in
regard to the day for the election of a United
States Senator If I do not very much misap
trehend, next Monday week is the day for that
election. At anyrate I think Tuesday next
would be early enough to consider this matter.
Mr. HILL. I would ask the Speaker to de
cide the question of difference between us as to
the time for that election.
The SPEAItPR. I would inform the gentle
man from Montgomery (Mr. Hill,) that it is a
question of law, and I do not think the Speak
er should be called upon to decide it.
Mr. BILL. I have stated the matter as it is
stated in the Manual.
Mr. SHEPPARD. In reply to the gentleman
from Montgomery, I would say that unless the
printed act of Assembly is unreliable, the state
ment I have made is correct.
The SPEAKER. Does the gentlemaa from
Montgomery (Hr. HILO call upon the Speaker
to determine the question?
