    duty of every true statesman and philanthro
pist, every lover and friend of our Union
is manifest. Would we promote the true
principles of national greatness, we must
be on the side of temperance and humanity.
Would we be true friends to the security
and future glory of our Union, we must
pray for the removal of these great nation
al evils, and not only pray but act. Yea,
we must carry out and defend these prin
ciples at the ballot-box, without regard to
party names and party influences, and may
the God of truth and righteousness, who
presides over the destinies of nations, so
help us.

The Inaugural Address.
Huchnonn, like his illustrious predecessor
Mr. Pierce, makes many fair promises of doing
some good. He harps upon "squatter sover

people of Kansas. He varnishes his whole ad
dress with a spirit of dough.faceism, and wise
ly comes to the conclusion that he will not be
candidate for a second term. But we leave
our readers to make their own comments.
THAT SEHMON.—We publish this week the
sermon delivered in the Baptist Church of this
place, on the 24th ult., by Rev. Still. We in•
vite attention to this docnment. and recommend
its perusal to all. It is a rare thing now•a•days
to sec or bear of a minister of the Gospel, of the
North, who is not tainted with the corrupting
idea of the divine origin of slavery. Who can
count the pulpits which are now closed against
the light of reason and the canoe of humanity?
Their name is Legion. Every word that might
sound like sympathy for the degraded slave, is
carefully avoided. Why should a popular min•
inter, one who speaks and preaches to glorify
himself (and alas ! how often isit the case) pe•
ril that popularity, peril his high position in
the affections and esteem of the dough face,
slavery-defending portion of his constituents,
peril his dollars and cents ; and for what?—
The cause of the poor, degraded, beaven•cle•
serted, shackled negro slave, who is not per-

ithere we see ministers who fear not to speak
on the great subject of human rights ; wle
knowing their master's will, do it. Such tnikt
are the ornaments of Christianity, because
they would rather be humble servants for the
sake of God and Humanity, than pampered,
eulogized, popular favorites, for the sake of

It is said that the friends of the "Ground

meeting, to denounce his ground hog.ship, for
the failure of his sign this time. During most
of the month of February, the weather has

erwise. This day or two past, however, it seems
to have gone back to first principles.

harmony and good feeling prevailed.
A liNocs DowN.—A difficulty between se,

last, resulted in the serious injury of one nam

with a hatchet, causing a fracture. He is in

office, I must humbly invoke the God of our
fathers for wisdom and firmness to execute its
high and responsible duties in such a manner
as to restore harmony and the ancient friend.

and to preserve our free institutions throughout
many generations. Convinced that I owe my
election to the inherent love for the Constitn
lion and the Union which still animates the
hearts of the American People, let me earnest.
ly ask their powerful support in sustaining all
just measurek calculated to perpetuate these,
the richest Political blessings which Heaven
has ever bestowed upon nny nation. Having
determined not to become a candidate for se
election, I shall have no motive to influence my
conduct in administering the Government ex
cept the desire ably and faithfully to serve my
country and to live in the grateful memory of
my countrymen.
We have recently passed through a Presi
dentinl contest in which the passions of our fel
low.eitizens were excited to the highest degree
by question's of deep and vital importance; but
when the People proclaimed their will, the tens
peat at once subsided, and all was calm. The
voice of the majority, speaking in the manner
prescribed by the Constitution, wits heard, and
instant submission followed. Our own country
could alone have exhibited so grand aid stri.
king a spectacle of the capacity of man for self
government. -What a happy conception, then,
it was for Congress to apply this simple rule,
that the will of the majority shall govern to
the settlement of the question of Domestic
Slavery in the Territories I Congress is neither
to legislate Slavery into any Territory or State
nor to exclude it therefrom ; but to leave the
People thereof perfectly free to form and regu
late their domestic institutions in their own
way, subject only to the Constitution of the Uni
ted States as a natural eowsequence. Congress
has also prescribed that when the Territory of
Kansas shall be admitted as a State, it shall be
received into the Union with or without Slavery
as their Constitution may prescribe at the time
• • 1
arisen in regard to the time w when the people of
a Territory shall decide this question tor them
selves. This is happily a matter of but little
practical importance, and beside, it is a judi
cial question, which legitimately belongs to the
Supreme Court of the United States, before
whom it is now pending, and will, it is under.
stood, be speedily .d finally settled. To their
decision, in common with all good citizens, I
shall cheerfully submit, whatever this may be,
though it has been my indivipual opinion that
under the Nebraska-Kansas act the appropri
ateperiod will be when the numher of actual
residents in the Territories shall justify the for
motion of a Constitution with a view to its ad.
mission as a State into the Union. But, be
that as it may, it is the imperative and ihdf i•
pensable duty of the Government of the United
States to eecuro to every resident the free mid
independent expression of his opinion by his
vote. This sacred right of each individna'
must be preserved. This being accomplished,
nothing can be fairer than to leave the people
of a territory free from all foreign interference
to decide their ow destiny for themselves, sub
jest only to the Constitution of the United
States. The *whole Territorial question being
thus settled upon the principle of popular sove
re'gnty—a itself—everything
as ancient as the free Go
vernment of a practical na
tete has been decided, and no other question
remains for adjustment, because all agree that
under the Constitution Slavery in the States ie,
beyond the reach of any human power except
that of the respective States themselves where
in it exists, May we not then hope that the
long agitation on this subject is approaching
its end, and that the geographical parties to
which it has given birth, so much dreaded by
the Father of his Country, will speedily
exasset. Most happy will it be for the country
when the public mind shall be diverted froin
this question to others of 'more pressing and
practical importance. Throughout the whole
progress of this agitation, which has scarcely
howl] any intermission for more than twenty
years, while it has been productive of no pow.
tive good to any human being it has been the
prolific source of great evils to the master, to
theslave and tothe whole country; it has alien
ated and estranged the people of the States from
each other, and , has even seriously endangered
the very existence of the Union. Nur hss it
yet entirely ceased. Under our system there
is a remedy for all mere political evils in the
sound sense and sober judgment of the people.
Time is a great corrective. The political sub.
jects which but a few years ago exasperated
the public mind have passed away and are now
nearly forgotten ; but this question of Domestic
Slavery is of far greater importance than any
mere political question, because, should the
agitation continue, it may eventually endanger
the personal safety of a large portion of our
countrymen where the institution exists. In
that event, no form cf Government, however
productive of material benefits, can compensate
for the loss of peace and domestic security a.
round the family altar. Let every Union.lov.
log man, therefore exert his best nfiuence to
suppress this agitation, which, since the recent
legislation of Congress, is without any legiti•
mate object. It is an evil of the times that
men have undertaken to calculate the mere
material value of the Union
Reasoned estimates have been presented of
the pecuniary profits and local advantages
which would result to different States and
eectione from its disolution, and of the comps,
ative injuried which ouch an event would inflict
on other States and sections. Even descending
to this low and narrow view of the mighty gees.
lion mill such calculations are at fault. The
bare reference to a single consideration will be
conclusive on this point.

These I shall not attempt to portray, because I
feel an humble confidence that the kind Provi

to frame the most perfect form of goueritment
and union ever devised by man, will not suffer
it to perish until it shall have been perfectly
instrumental, by its example, in the extension

Next in importance to the maintainance of
the Constitution and the Union is the duty of
preserving the Government free from the mist
or even the suspicion of corruptioe. Public
'virtue is the vital spirit of Republics, and his
tory proves that when this has decayed and
the love of money has usurped its place, al
though the forms of free government may re
main for a season, the substance has departed
forever. Our present finencial condition is
without a paralled in history. No nation has
ever before been embarrassed from too large
n surplus in its Treasury. This ahnost neces
sarily gives birth to extravagant legislation.—
It produces wild schemes of expenditures and
begets a race of speculators and jobbers whose
ingenuity is exerted in contriving and pronto
ting expediments to obtain the public money.
Thetparty, through its official agents, whether
rightfully or wrongfully, is suspected, nod the
character of the Government suffers in the
estimation of the people. This is in itself a
very great evil. The natural mode of relief from
this embarrassment is to appropriate the sur
plus in the Treasury to great national objects
for which a clear warrant can be found in the
constitution. Among these, I might mention
the extinguishment of the public debt, a rea•
sonable increase of the Navy, which at pres
ent inadequate to the protection of our vast
tonnage alloat—now greater than flint of.ahy
other nation, as well as the defense of our ex•
tended sea coast. It is beyond all question
the true principle that no more revenue ought
to be collected from the people than the amount
necessary to defray the expenses of a wise
economical and efficient Administration of the
Government. To reach this point it Wan ne
cessary to resort to a modification of the tarifF
and this has been accomplished in such e man•
ner to do as little injury as may have been
practicable to our domestic manufactures, es
pecially those necessary for the defence of the
country. Any discrimination against a par
ticular branch fondle purpose bf benefiting fa
vored corporation, individuals, or interests,
would have been unjust to the rest of the com
munity and inconsistent with that spirit of fair
nese and equality, which ought. to govern in
the justment of a revenue tariff—but the
squandering of the public money sinks into
comparative insignificance, as a temptation to
corruption, when compared with the squander
ing of the public lands.
No ration in the tide of time has ever been
blessed with rich and noble an inheritance as
we enjoy in the public lands. In administer
ing this important, while it may be wise to
grant portions of them for the improvement
of the remainder, yet we should never forget
that it is oar cardinal policy to reserve these
lands as mach as may be for actual settlers, and
this at moderate prices. We shall thus not
only beat promote the prosperity of the recd
pendent race of honest and industrious chi.
neon, but shall seore homes for our children,
and our children 's children, as well as for
those exiles from foreign shores who may seek
in this country to improve their condition and
to enjoy the blessings of civil and religious
liberty. Such emigrants have done much to
promote the growth and prosperity of the men.
try. They have proved fbithful both in peace
and in war. After becoming citizens, they
are entitled, under the Constitutions and laws,
to be placed on perfect equality with native
born citizens, and in this character they should
ever be kindly recognized. The Federal Con.
stilettos is a grant from the States to Congress
to certain specific powers, and the question
whether this grant shall be liberally or strictly
construed, has, more or less, divided political
parties froni the beginning. Without entering
Into the argument, I desire to state at the
commencement of my administration, that
long experience and observation have convin
ced me that a strict construction of the
powers of the Government is the only true us
well as the only safe theory of the Constitution.
Whenever, in our past history, doubtful pow
ers have been exercised by Congress, they have
never failed to produce injurious and unhappy
consequences. Many such instances might be
adduced if this were the proper occasion. Nei.
ther is it necessary for the public service to
strain the language of the Constitution, be
cause all the great and usqfpl powers required
for a successful administraion of the Govern
ment, both in peace and in war, have been
granted either in express terms or by the plain
est implication. While deeply convinced of
these truths I yet consider it clear that under
the wamnaking power Congress may appro
priate money toward the construction of a mili
tary road when this is absolutely necessary for
the defense of any State or Territory of the
Union against foreign invasion. Under the
Constitution Congress has power to declare
war, to raise and support armies ' to provide
and maintain a navy, and to call forth the mil
itia to repel invasion. nue endowed in an
ample manner with the war-making power.
the cob espondiug duty is required that the
United States shall protect each of them (the
States) against invasion. How is it possible
to afford this protection to California and our
Pacific possessions except by means of a mili
tary road through the territory of the United
States, over which men and munitions of war
may be speedily transported from the Atlantic
States to meet and repel the invader? In
case of a war with a naval power much etron•
ger than our own, we should then have no oth
er available access to the Pacific coast, because
such a power would instantly close the route
across the isthmus of Central America. It is
impossible to conceive that while the Constitu
tion has expressly required Congress to defend
all the States, it should yet deny them by any
fair construction the only possible means by
which one of these States can be defended.—
Beside the Government, ever since its origin,
hue been in the constant practice of construct
ing military roads. It might also be wise to
consider whether tho' love for the Union which
now animates our fellow-citizens on the Pa
cific Count way not be impaired by our neg.
loch or refueal to provide for them, iu their re
mote and insulated condition, the only means
by which the power of the States en this side
of the Rocky mountains can reach them in
sufficient time to protect them against Mew
I forbear, fee the present, from expressing
an opinion as So th . e wisest and most economi
cal mode in which the Government can lend
its aid in accomplishing this great and necessa
ry work. I belive that many difficulties in the
I way, which new appear formidable, will, in a
great de4ree, vanish am moon as nearest and
'belt mote ehallltave been satisfactorily ascer
It may he right that, on this occasion, I
should make some' brief remarks aa to our
rights nod duties ae a member of the great
Family of Nations. In our intercourse with
them, there are some plain principles approved
by our oven experience from which me
should never depart. We ought to cultivate
peace, commerce and friendship with all nit
tions, .d this not merely as the best means
of producing our own national interest, but in
a spirit of Christian benevolence toward fel
low men, where ver their lot may be cast. Our
diplomacy should be direct and trunk, neither
seeking, to obtain' 11101 . 11 nor less than is due.--
We ought to cherish a secret regard for the
independence of all nations, and never attempt
to interfere in the dotnestie concerns of any,
unless this shall be imperatively required by
the great law of selfpreservation. To avoid
entangling alliances has been a maxim of our
policy aver since the days of Washington, and
its wisdom no one will attempt to dispute. In
short, we ought to du justice in a kindly spin.
it to all nations, and require justice from them
in return. It is .r glory that while other na
tions have extended their dominions by the
sword, we have never acquired any territory
except by fait purchase, or, as in the case of 1 ,
Texas, by the voluntary determination of a
brave kindred, and i independent people to
bleed their destines with our own. Even our
acquisitions from Mexico form no exception. I
Unwilling to take advantage of the fortune of
war against a sister Republic, we purchased
these possessions under the treaty of peace for
a sum which was considered at the time a fair
equivalent. Our past history forbids that wo
shall in future acquire territory unless this be
sanctioned by the laws of justice and honor.—
Acting on this principle, no nation will have a ,
right to interfere or to complain if iu the pro.
green of events we shall still further extmid Our
possessions. Hitherto, itt all our acquisations
the people wader the protection or the Ameri•
can flag have enjoyed civil and religious
ty, as well as equal and just laws, and have
been contented, and prosperous and happy.—
Their trade with the rest of the world has rap.
idly increased, and this every commercial na
tion has shared largely in their successful pro
gress. I shall now proceed to take the oath
prescribed by the Constitution, while humbly
invoking the blessing of Divine Providence
on this people.

by humanity and science. Is it nut a mistake,
to suppoise that a kettle of boiling water (the
inflamed blood) will cease to boil' by dipping
out a part of it—or cask of bad cider (impure

Masses. EDITORS :—having exerted my host
abilities in and previous to the late disastrous
National Election, to prevent the calamities
which I foresaw, from the month of February,
1856, awaited to, in consequence of the insane
quarrels and fratricidal disputes of those who
had theretofore acted together against the wick
ed projects of the National Administration, and
its statallites and partizans, in various forms and
under circumstances before unheard of in our

our enemies, not on account of the justice of their
cause, or their numerical force hi the nation,
but solely through and by the follies of men
professing the greatest hostility to the common
adversary. I now deem it time for us all to
pause and consider, what is to be done, to pre
vent the recurrence of like calamities in future.
To effect this purpose, it is vain and absurd to
propose any other remedy titan the Union of all
the divisions of parties, who avow themselves to
stand.antagonistic to the oppressors of the peo
ple at Washington. The border ruffians of hlis
souri, and the robbers and assassins of Kansas,
are but the minions and implements of their su
periors and conductors at Washington. It is a
vain thing to undertake to destroy a noxious and
poisonous tree by lopping elf a few of the top
most breathes; the evil and danger can only ha
exterminated by severing the trunk and uproot
ing its lowest ligaments.
In my opinion, the cull of the fifty-five mem
bers of our State Legislature, upon the enemies
of the further advance of Slavery, and of the a
vowed principles of the new National Adminis
tration, to prepare for tiling a Union Conven
tion, at Harrisburg, is sonable and just, and
presents the most probable. moans of bringing
together in solid phalanx, all the friends of free
dom and the Constitution, that has been propo
sed; and I trust that this cull will be responded
to with much hearty good will, as well by the
Republicans of this county, as by every voter
