. Sr., Lincoln's Inanjuial.
The 'inauguration of Abraham Lincoln,
its the : sixteenth rPresident of tbe United
Sta'es, (provided all people think them uni
ted,) occurred at Washington, on Monday
of last week j arid lh3 address, deli vered by
the ' President oa the occasion, will be
found oa our first ;page, entire.- Tbe so
much talked of disturbance did not take
place, and all be proceedings of tbe day
were characterized $y the utmost good hu
mor on 'tire part of the populace. This in
augural address was deliverevTIrora the por
lico'oi the Capitol. In his address, some of
tb.3 Press have a notion that he hints at the
Lime ground assumed by Mr. Bcchakam, in
Jiis last message, in relation to the question
of secession. It appears difficult to arrive
at the true irtftrpretation of his whole mes
sage.' ' We notice that one party declare it
means war, another that it means peace.
The South say it means coercion, told in
velvety language. , We notice, in one par
ticular clause, he says, that it is bis inten
tion to where offices are made vacant, by
resignation in the seceded Slates, and no
person can be found in the locality to ac
cept the same to force strangers upon
them. Such a couise, as he wiy well be
lieve, would only perplex, aggravate and
excite the people. He declares his pur
pose to preserve the public , peace, to lake
hmI to hold all national property, and all
without the shedding of blood t While doing
this he indicates that he will take no steps
which lock like war upon the South. His
purpose is thought a hard one to carry out,
unless he is able to cause some spell to
come over the Southern people, operating
similar to the effects of mesmerism.. Mr.
Douglas declared in the Senate in a speech
that the address meant peace. But upon ;
the whole, while there are some portions of
the document which do not -entirely har
monize 'with his peaceful professions, we
leel dposefJ to consTue it as a State paper
iflndinz to conservatism rather than other
wise. If be is sincere in bis
Ms friends and advisers true to their pro
fessions, swe may expect him to pursue a
peaceful policy, and thus fling the Chicago
Platform to the dogs. But let him attempt
to make one demonstration of war, or co
ercion, 'and his administration, the Union,
and the liberties or thi3 people protected
I y .a -constitutional Government will be
engolfed in ruin and rhaos. For the sake
of the Union and the people, let us sincere
ly trust that fhe new Preeident will cast off
the trammels of Party, and standing with
the GansUlafion in one hand and the Olive
Branch in the other, extend them withl
their guarantees unimpaired to onr breth
ren of the South, and unite them, in the
spirit of our fathers, to come back and share
Lincoln's Cabinet.
.Below we give the members of President
Lincoln's Cabinet. It is composed of near
ly all shades and colors, and with the-ac-ceplion
of Seward,, Chase, Cameron,; and
btm, they paj conrpajatiyely obscure and
UBktiown--fnen otVho mark. 5 Cameron,
Cfcare" andrWellesare known' TO have' be
longed to ihe' democratic party, and it was
a blessed thing for ii that they were read
out. Seward, Chase and Bate, even are
only secorfd rate statesmen. But all this
matters not; this Cabinet is" to be viewe-1
in other aspects. Between Seward and
Chase there is understood to be an irrecon
cilable hostility. One heads the moder
ate (!) the olher the .coercive and uncom
promising wing of the Republican party.
The appointment of Chase is a fair tribute
to Horace Greeley, the ultra editor of the
Tribune, and a gross insult to the South, to
the border States, to the Union men in the
border States. . Several prominent men'df
.Virginia remonstrated strongly with Lincoln
against the appointment of this mart
demons went so Tar as to say to the Pres
ident that Virginia would secede if he put
Chase in his Cabinet, but it appears to
have had uoeffeat.
So the border slave-States will have the
fraud of SEWARD-nd the violence of Chase to
contend against poison and the sword.
In the Post Office Department will be a
bitter, disappointed Southern reneaade, un
der whose auspices the border Stales will
be filled with incendiary letters, ;papers and
publicat ions. The Post Office, with its infi
nite and all-pervading ramifications, vi II
be the great engine of abolitionism-and ser
vile insurrection. Against its insidious and
secret influence there will be -no defence.
No Southern hearth will be safe.
'The preference of Chase over Cameron
for the Treasury is an insult and a blow to
Pennsylvania and her interests. The "Ban
ner State" is signed, Cameron set aside be
cause of his favoring her, and Chase, whose
tariff views are at least questionable,, pnt
over him. The patronage for which the
Pennsylvania Wide Awakes struggled so
hard, is taken from thera to be distributed
by Chase end Blair among their friends,
the ultra Republicans. The Treasury ar.d
the Post Office Departm ents have the great
bulk of the patronage, while the War De
partment promises but little to the hun
dred hordes of Pennsylvania patriots. We
Seward and the Feace Conference.
It would appear from what we have read
that the mighty ; conservative Seward re
jects the plan" of adjustment offered by the
Peace Convention, ad' takes 'occasion to
make an approach towards a practical ap
plication of ? the sentiments of his U'.e
speech delivered in the Senate, in regard to
consider amendments to the constitution,
"aftert hese eccentric secession movements"
shall subside, "say in one, two or three
year." -
That's the-way in which Mr Lincoln's
Premier takes the plan ol the Peace Con
feree. As for Concress, it will doubtless
pass it by indisdain. But will lb i s plan
satisfy trre South'? The cotton States will
spit upon it, and if the'border States shall
be satisfied with it, then will they resemble
a chihbpteased -with-a -rattle. If this thing
satisfies them, then,'indeed re they easily
satisfied then they have : put the country
to much trouble -and much distress for no
purpose. Their excitement, their agitation,
have been useless and absurd.. They have
"Like ocean into tempests tossed.
" To wait a feather, or to drown a fly."
No. this abortion will not satisfy the bor
'der'States It may, and doubtless -vill sat
isfy those who want to carry favor with Lin
coin in order to "get office," or thosta obi,
broken -down federal hacks, whose only aim
is to raise up opposition to the 'Democracy;
but it will satisfy no others in the border
Slates. The likelihood is, that it will excite
only disappointment and disgust. The
Virginia Convention is still in session, and
we will soon learn in what manner she will
receive this plan the illegitimate birth of
the Peace Conference.
The Latest.
Jt wa reported hereabouts, that "Fort
St?mpter was evacuated, on Tuesday lasu
This is .not the course the ultra portion'of;
the Republican party desired to be pursued
by the Administration. They were loud in
their denunciations against Buchanan for
not re enforcing Fort Sumpter... It may not
be true that this Fort is evacuated ; but true
or not, a number of -Republican Congress
men whoare yet in Washington are-urgent
against the withdraw! of the troops; and at
the same time it is deemed impossible by
the test military authority to Te-tenforce this
Fort with less than 10 000 men, and at least
half of lire Navy operating in the harbor.!
This Fort will nost likely be evacuated, if
it is not already. Maj. Anderson is about
out oflood, and it is not likely ho and his
small force will be kept there to perish by
starvation. Wi hdraw these troops and
then-some of our danger will be averted
and peaceful negotiations begin.
The New Tariff bill.
The new Tariff bill, jvhich, since the
agreement of the Committee of Conlerence,
in striking out the duly on tea and coffee,
may be regarded as having passed, is ex
pected to yield ar increased revenue of
$19,920,850 on the principal imports. At
least such is the estimate of the Hon. Wm.
Bigler, of Pennsylvania, who, in defending
the bill in be Senate, remarked in sub
stance as follows :
For the last yerr the importation of wo-I
en amounted to$37,937,00U, and the duties
to S$,1S5,-0OO. The estimate is that ihe bill
pending will increase these duties- 2,273,

MrLincoln's Recklessness of Assertion.
The heresies and crudities of Mr. Lin
coln's Inaugural are sufficiently revolting
to men of taste, as well as to all patriotic
instincts ; bur he does not seem to think so,
for to these blemishes he mperadds the
utterance of a deliberate and audacious un
truth. :Look, for instance, at the following
passage :
"Apprehension seems to exist amo.ig the
people of the Southern States, that by the
accession of a Republican Adminisiration,
their properly, and their peace and person
al security are to be endangered. Ihere never
iias been any reasonable utuse for such cjrpre
hemion. Indeed, the inoji ample evkleme to
the contrary h is been open to their inspection."
Whocojld have believed that there is a
man living, who in the presence of uch
surroundings as attended the inauguration
of tiie Chief Magistrate of the Nation,
would have had the hardihood to make the
bold and reckless assertions contained in
the above paragraph ? The Southern States
have no reasonable cause for apprehension!
Not after the John Brown raid, and when it
was discovered that Republican leaders
were in the.plot 1 . Not after the brutal and
bloody speech of Sumner, denouncing the
Southern people as -guilty of all the crimes
nominated in the
decalogue ?

and tbe duty to SJ 458 000 The estimated under ihe pending bill is Sl.12S,50ti.
The impoMat:ons ot wines for the las: year
amounted to 34,775,000, and at the present

The increase under the present bill would
be Si, 347,000. The importations of couons
amounted to over 2.27,000,000 last year,
and ihe duiiei exceeded SG,5000,000. The
estimated increase is 1,645,000. On the

the reduction on f-ngarand molasses $2,

The proposed duty on tea and coffee,
which wis stricken out by the house, would,

Buchanan's Arrival at Lancaster. i
Lancaster, "RTirch 6 The train with Ex
President Buchanan and the Commiuees
and friends accompanying him reached this
city atont 2$ o'clock. Its arrival was an
nounced by the' firing of cannon and the
ringing of the bells of the various churches
of the city. . . .. ..
An immense crowd had coileced at the
intersection of the Harrisburg turnpike and
the railroad, ai.d as the train approached,
with the locomotive gaily decorated with
flags, the cheering was vociferous. Soon
after Mr. Buchanan made his appearance
and was greeledvwiih the wildest demon
sirations of hearty welcome. He was es
corted to an open barouche drawn by four
spirited white horses, aud look a seat with
the Mayor of the city.
The procession was then formed, the" es
cort being composed of the Lancaster Fen-
cibles, the'jackson Rifles, the Maylown In
fantrv. the Baltimore battalion, -and the
j i
Worth Infantry and the York Rifle. Fol
lowing these came the City Councils, va
rious literary and other societies, the fire
companies and an immense body of citi
The procession passed through a number
of the principal streets of the ci-y, all of
which were densely drbw'deJi, while flags
and banners decorated the route.
At a few minutes past 4 o'clock the pro
cession reached Centre Sqnare, where an
immense multitude) bad assembled. A
platform had been erected in front of the
Post Office, to which Mr. Buchanan was
conducted, when Mr. Preston, on the part
of the Baltimore City Guards, in a few neat
and appropriate remarks, handed over Mr.
Buchanan to the authorities and citizens of
his much loved Lancaster,
Mayor Sanderson, on behalf of the city
authoriiiett, welcomed the ExPresident to

In a letter to Mr Breckinridge, dated
Auzust 12. 1803, relative to the acquisition
ol Louisiana, Mr. JefTert-on says :
" 1 hese federalists see in this acquisition
the formation of a new Confederacy, embracing
nil ihh waters of the Missisippi, on both
sides of it, and a separation of the eastern
waters from us. These combinations de
pend on so many circumstances which we
cannot foresee, that I place little reliance
on them.

their happiness should depend 6n it so strongly
as to induce then to go thrwh thai convuhion,

"We haye of late observed with pleasura
ble fee'ings a growing tendency among the
higher circles to contract a closer intimacy I
with the disciples of Art and Science. This
is as it should be, for in our humble opin
ion England rises higher in the scale of civ
ilization by the fertile genius of her sons
than by the rays of military glory reflected
from her arms. Al the late levee in the
Queen's Drawing Rooms among other nota
bilities we noticed with unfeigned satis
faction the celebrated Dr. Holloway, whose
Pills and Ointment have won lor him a uni
versal and imperishable name, his sober
habli ments strangely contrasted with ihe
elegant and recherche dress of the courtiers
who surrounded him. On introducing him
to ihe Queen, Her Majesty extended her
haud to him in the most gracious and smil
in" manner, detaining him a few moments
by well merited compliments to his fame,
which haJ been echoed to the uttermost
boundaries of the earth, wherever sickness
had found a "local habitation," or disease
sown its dragon's teeth. Her Majesty par
ticularly alluded to the benefits which not
only the wounded British but even French
Soldiers had received Irom his Ointment
during the Russian war. The Doctor bowed
his venerable head in acknowledgement
of this proud tribute from his Sovereign
Mistress to hi unceasins eflorts in the
cause of suffering humanity. Fxom the uni
ted testimony of the Medical Staff, the Of
ficers, and Miss Florence Nightingale, who
all concurred in the great efficacy of Dr
Holloway's Ointment in gun-shot wounds
sloughing ulcers, sabre cuts and contusions,
the Government has issued orders that the

ERobertJ. Walker has suddenly be
come a millionaire by the decision made in
the Supreme Court involving the title to a
quicksilver mine in California estimated to
to be worth S10,000.000 Mr. Walker
the proprietor, of one-fifth ol this valuable
mine, and was offered not long ago S2,000,

a favorable decision. That decision has
now been given and Mr. Walker, who was
m dsa his own words, "a bessar in the
morning," went home lo dinner a million
when the dancers oT civil war and blood
shed are fearfully imminent. That such a
sad condition x things is deprecated by
you, as it is by every true hearted patriot in
the land, cannot ba doubted. We know
that you anticipated and faithfully warned
your fellow-citizens, time and again, of the
dangers that at the present moment men
ace the country; and now that the troubles
you predicted with true staiesmanlike sa
gacity as the result ol a sectional contro

their horrors and intensity short of the
phedding of fraternal blood, which has, so
ar, been happily averted by your calmness
and prudence I am sure that no language
I can employ will be sufficient to express
the deep feeling of grief which must per
vade your bosom al the discordant and dis
severed condition of the country.
