Rbenshurg. March 10, lg.3.
fyoyTliis istVurt week. Ofcour-e. on ac
count of tle duties which devolve upon us in
attending to other affairs than ofiice business,
our paper cannot receive tlmt uttention which
we would wish to bestow upon its columns. It
Contains, however, the latest news, with full
proceedings, of the inauguration and the address
of the nt w President, i
The Inaugural of President Tierce, is every
where praised and commended; many of the op
position give it as hearty an Approval as could
l.eexjected from any democrat. American in
its every sentiment, it gives to us the assurance
that in Fkaxk. PiF.ncr, we have the man for the
titns. Simply beautiful in language and style,
the document pleases none the less than it in
struct", convinces, and delights us. Read it
carefully, weigh well its solid truths and yi u
cannot hut say with us. that the Nation has ait
the helm the wry man for the age.
Cambiia Co. Coal Trade.
The Coal Trade of this county would be a
handsome source of revenue were it not for the
high toll upon the State Improvements, which
forbid the transportation of coal to Philadelphia
and its consequent sale there at a profit. The
probability is that none of the coal banks upon
the Portage Railroad will ha worked this season
except those from whence the coal is supplied
for the use of the Stationary Engines on that
road. This will be a serious loss to the com
munity, smd throw out of employment a large j
u;mlr .flniiiils engaged in the mining and
coal-carrying busimss. The increased toll over
former years, which the Canal Commission rs
have placed upi.n coal, is, w Mil lerst tn 1. I cts.
per bushel, between the Mountain and Philadel
phia, sufficient to deter any person from enga
giig " Hie business unless he desires to U se
tnoncy. The distance from litre to l'hihulel- j
phia is so great, that even a low, very low ratej
of toll, amounts to a considerable sum ere the'
coal reaches market, which added to the cost of'
transporting in boats and en s, wear and tear of
B.tme, and cost of mining, rembis it impossible
to transport coal w ithout a lo.-s. We hope this
mam r win te s.ttenucd to by the Canal board,
and if possible, a reduction of tolls be made.
The interests of the producers and coucumers
alike demand it.

The Now Cabinet.
All guessing on the important question of who
will be in the Cabinet, an who will not, is now
at an end. Th- trouble that some men had of
changing tack with every rumor that floated on
the breeze, now pulling one distinguished man
and then another of an opposite f iction and op;
posite principles, is n..w happily over. The
President has nominated, and the Senate confir
med, the following as the members of the new
Cabinet which will no doubt meet the general
approval of the Democracy :

Whether the elements of in'ierent force in the
Republic 'have kept pace with its unpar.illod i
progression in territory, population ami wealth,
has been the subject of earnest thought and dis
cussion on both sides of the ocean. Less th in
sixty-three years ago. the Father of his country j
made the then recent accession of the important
State of North Carolina to the Constitution of the
United States one of the subjects of his especial
congratulations. At that moment
when the agitation consequent upon the revolu.
tioitary struggle had partly subsided, when we
were just emerging from the w eakness and etn
bai rasments of the confederation, theie was an
evident consciousness of vigor, equal to the great
mission so wisely ami bravely fulltilled by our
fathers. It was not a presumptuous assurance.
hut a calm faith springing from a ciear view of
the sources of power in a government constitu
ted like ours. It is no paradox to say that, al
though comparatively weak, the new born na
tion was intrinsically strong. Inconsiderab'e in
population and apparent resources, it was up
held by a broad and intelligent comprehension
of rights, and an all pervading purpose t. main,
tain them, sironger than arm mients. It came
from the furnace of the revolution, tempered to
the necessities of the times. The thoughts of
tiie men of that day were as practical ns the'r
-entimeiits were patriotic. They wasted no por
tion of their energies upon idle and delusive
speculations, but with a firm and fearless tep.
advanced beyond the govcnial landmuikp w hich
ud hitherto circumscribed the bunts of human
freedom, and planted their ttand.-n- l. where it
has stood against the dangers whuh have threa
tened from abroad, and tlie internal Mediation
which has at times fearfully menaced at home.
They have proved themselves equal to the men

One of the most impressive coincidence of
that wisih m is to he found in the tact, that the
actual working of our system has dispelled a
degree of solicitude which, at the outset. iis
tuvhed buhl hearts and far reaching intellects.
The apprehension of dang rs from extended t r
ritury, multiplied States, accumulated wialth.
and aiigumented population, has proved to b
unfounded. The stars upon your banner hate
become nearly f Id their original number.
Four densely populated posss-ioiis skirt the
shores of two great oceans, and yet til's vast in
crease of people and territory lms not only showi:
itself compatible with the harmonious action
the Slates and the Federal Government in thtir
respective Constitutional spheres, but has affor
ded mi additional guaranty of the strength and
integr ty of both.
With an experience thus suggestive and chee
ring, the policy of my administration will not
be contr .lied by any timid forebodings ofei
from expansion. Indeed, it is not to be dis
guiseithat our attitude as a nation, and oui
position on the globe, render the acquisition ;
certain -.oses"sions not within our jurisdiction
eminently importaiit for our protection if not
now, at ieast in the future mid essential for
the preservation of the rights of comun-ive am.'
I he peace of the world. Should they lie ob
tained, it will lie through no gra-ping spirit,
but with a view to obvious national interest am.
security, and in a manner entirely coiisist.m
with the strictest observance ot national faith.
We have nothing in our history or position t
invite aggression ; we have every thing to b.'ckoi.
to the cultivation of relations of peace and amit
with all nations'. Pnr;iis 's. therefore, nt once
just and pacific, will be Signiiicantly marked in
the conduct of our foreign an urs. I inti'ie.
th it my administration shall le-ive n. blot
upon our f.iir record, and 1 trust I may safely
give the assaraifce that no act within the legiti
mate scope of my constitutional control will bt
tolerated on tiie part of any portion of our cit
izens, which cannot ch illeitgt a ready ju-'tifi.i
tion before the tribunal f the civilized w -rid.
An administration would he uaworthv ofc-.mfi
deuce, at home or abroad, should it cease to be
pntluenced by the conviction t'-at no ipf) ir ;it
advantage can be purchased at a price s dear
as that o,f n-itioual wr ing or dishonor.
It is not your privilege, as a nation. t sjie.ik
of a distant past. The striking incidents of
your history are replete with instruction, and
furnishing abiiu groUii ls for hoivliil cotiti
deuce, are c m prised in a period c unparatively
brief: but if your pist is limited, yourfuture is

limitless as diir.ition. Hence a s um I an I coot
prehetisive poiicy should embrace not K-ss the
distant future than the itrg.-nt present.
The trat objects of our pursuit, a a people,
are best to be attained by peace, and arc-entirely
consistent with the tranquility and inter
est of the rest of mankind. With the neigh b--r-
nig nations on our continent, we s-lioulu eu ti-
vate kindiy ami fraternal illations;
we call ile-i
