old' maxim: which human , nature is
strongly inclined to act upon in every posi

'should deprecate the almost universal cone

/gess and State tegislatura is greeted.
• ' That: with the strongest desire to judge
•.fiirly'and even charitably the action of the
t.Forty•second.,Congress, which rested froth
its labors and passed into history last week,
l ips hard for any honest citizen to read the
.record of its closing hours without a deep
feeling of disgust, of indignation, and of
- .contemptuous pity for its display of mural
:cowardice which enabled some'of its guilty,
. members to escape merited punishment,
-and for the paltry meanness which prompt
ed a majority of its members to vote money
!into theirowu pockets.
• • There is much in the history of that Con
gress to which the men composing it might
~point•with just pride and 'satisfaction. It
ha 3 initiated and perfected numerous meas
ures by 'which the whole -country will be
greatly benefited. It has legislated justly
and •wisely for the restoration, of social and
'poictical order at the South, though it is to
be regretted that it expired without provid.
.tiag some special remedy for the Louisiana
anarchy. It has ratified • the Treaty of
'iVasliington, and carried its stipulations into
dull operation. It has passed an amnesty
bill which is almost universal in its applica•
!'on. „it has revised the revenue laWs, and
repealed the duties on tea and coffee. It
-has abolished almost the whole schedule of
internal revenue taxes and stamp duties.—
'lt has cut down the grand army of office
holders, and reduced taxation by scores of
laillions.. It has facilitated the acquisition
4.4 homesteads by soldiers and sailorstif the
,fate war, and has not squandered millions of
acres - of the public lands on jobbers' and
monopolists, mit was strongly urged to do.
`.lt has repealed the franking privilege, and
wisely regulated the election of Represent.
fativei. For all these acts it is entitled to
'the thanks of the country, and hardly lees
, forsorne things it has not done—the refund•
ing of the cotton tax among the number.
.11 its record stopped here, the late Con.
jgress would have earned the approbation of
!the whole land-, but, alas! it does not. The
proceedings of its last days have earned for
ct the s lasting contempt and condemnation
the people, and have blotted front the
'public mind almost all memory of its good
t ileeds. One house has Condemned some of
-its own members for seta which should have
- :impelled their prompt expulsion, while the
:other has done its best to white-wash Sena
tors whom almost everybody believes to be
, guilty of buying or attempting to buy their
town ,election. And, to crown all, both
.hottees . and members of .both parties have
idined hands in taking the people's money
'from the public treasury and placing it in
the pockets of the several Senators and
Representatives by their own votes.
• While this act alone is enough to brand
'svithdisgrace the memory of the Forty-
second Congrep, it is lint fair that the pub
lic understand by whose votes it was
-104ased, and the lame excuses put forward to
justify the grab. We pxopose, therefore to

o,llli, WASHINGTON lagluga.
WAsnaNaTqs, March 4, IR;
The city is full to the brim and running
over with visitors from all quarters of the
United States, with a clever sprinkling from
foreign lands. The Inauguration ceremo
nies form perhaps a nearer approach to the
glitter of monarchical pageantry in Europe
than any other that Amerjcans ever make.
The difference is that hare the once itself hi
honored, while there the man as well 'as the
office, the head as well as the crownjitpon
it is made the special mark of obtrusive
demonstration by the people. Mare than' a
hundrgt thousand people are temporarily
visiting Washington, having the
don as a special object in their view. Penn
sylvania Avenue and the other streets are
arched at intervals with flags of all nations,
and many more that belong to no country
at all. The West Point cadets and those of
the Naval Academy, crack military compa
nies all the way from Boston, New York,
Philadelphia, Baltimore,and elsewhere, mix
with the citizens and crowd the streets.—
The Departmlnts were so generally visited
that no business could be done on Monday,
and the offices might 'as well have been
closed for three days instead of one,save for
form's sake. The ball arrangements seem
to be perfect. The committee have been in
defatigable, and have made all the prepare.
tions to prevent anything that may mar The
pleasure of the occasion. The building hes
cost $60,000, and the citizens deserve the
greatest credit for enterprise in theirprepa
DODGING AN EXTRA BIO.,SIQN.
The Senate held a Sunday session wia
view to avoiding, an extra session of on
gress. So much of the time Of beth bo s ea
has been occupied with the investigation
business that the making of the laws and
the appropriations have been neglected or
delayed , until no sufficient thus remains for
the proper consideration of important ques
tions that ought to be decided before next
'December. The holding of sessions day
and night justrat the close of a Congress
cannot be made to take the place of _regular
sessions for dtie delibetations upon public_
business. Haste in closing up the business
of a Congress generally involves the passage
of many objectionable laws without consid
eration; pad the omission to pass others
which the public necessities demand. Thus
the Louisiana muddle is laid on the. shelf,
and the responsibility given to the Presi
dent, for the exprestreaso that there is not
time to prepare the requir remedy for the
irregularities of governm t in that State.
Many other necessary easures will lie
over, and unless an extra esSion is called
there will be losses in the internal revenue,
and many other needs of the nation will be
neglected that ought to be supplied by Con
grass long before its next regular session,
which praecieslly begins next year.

So irse 4:1120 Democratic newspapers are
holding up hands in holy horror because
there are to be thirty visiting military-or
gnnizations here at the capital during the
inauguration. Why can't these editors. be
happy? Are they State Itignts men? If so,
then as these organizations are State militia;
with two or three exceptions, why .are they
not content? Do they imagine they can
make a row and prevent the inauguration? ,
If not, Itrhxdo they fear the militia which
come of 'heir own accord, without the in
citation or consent of the President? The
fact is, their complaining is a chronic com
plaint, and cannot be egied by any- Of • their

The second inauguration, last Tuesday,
of Ulysses S. Graht riS President of the Uni.
:led States exceeded anything of the kind
erer witnessed in Washington. Thecivic and
military display was imposing, and every
thing conspired to make the affair a success. -
The Senate held an all-night esslon, apd ad;
journecl a little after three, t, clock in the
morning to meet again at nine,a. ra, `At
half past nine•o'clodk the ceo+.vd on the east,
Milt of the • Capitol was very large. ...lre
-weather was raw and chilly, and Overcoats
and shawls 'were in gent demand. Vice
President Colfax wa /in his -room at ten
o'chick preparing. hi dosing remarks as
presiding officer of to Senate, and making
necessary arrangemen for the closing up
of his affairs at the 'apitol, At the hour
for re-assemblingbirt few of the Senators
appeared in their ,s ts. Mr. Carpenter
took' the chair, anOtrif an hour was spent
in dilatory motionsland desultory conversa
tions between the few Senators present. ..
The President arrived at the Capitol about
11 o'clock, accompanied,by all the members
of the Cabinet, and was engaged in his
room signing bills up to the time of ad
journment. At twenty-five minutes before
12 the diplomatic corps entered the cham
ber by the main entrance, escorted by the
Committee of Arrangements and headed by
Blacque lley, the dean of the corps. , They
were shown to. the seats assigned to them on
the right of the Vice President, 'Biacque
Bey taking the front seat, usually occupied
by Senator Morton.
The Supreme Court of the United States
was announced at a quarter to eleven, and en
tered by the main door. The Judges all
wore the robes of office, and as they entered
the chamber' all upon the floor arose to their
feet. The .seats assigned to the Supreme
Court were immediately in front of the.Yiee
Preildent's desk and to the right thereof.—
At fifteen minutes to 12 Vice President-,elect
Wilson, escorted by Senator Cragin and
followed by Senators Logan and Buyard, of
the Senatorial Committee of Arrangements,
came down the center 'aisle and advanced
toward the Speaker's desk and took his seat
on the right of Vice President Colfax.
Airtentninntes before 12 the Committee
ofjArrangements, Messrs. Cragin, Logan
ti°d Baymsid, left the Senate chamber with
e Vice President-elect, and retired to the
esident's room. At this time everything
was in readiness, and Messrs. C,onkling and
trumbull, the committee to inform the
Preshient that Congress was ready to ad
journ. returned and reported that the Pres
ident had nothing further to communicate.
At three minutes before 12 the President
,appeared, leaning on the arm of Senator
Cragin, followed by the other members of
the committee, and then came the members
of the p al? in et. , The President took his
seat in front of the Searetau'a "dealt, and
the Cabinet took seats on the left of the
Vice President's chair. There was a deep
hush on the floor and in the galleries when
the President came down the aisle and took
the seat assigned him. Everybody in the
galleries and on the floor arose, and did not
take their seats until the President had taken
his seat. The Vice President then read the
following nddress amid an impressive si

the people and afterward by' the people
themselves to the responsible duty of pre
siding successively over the two houses of
Congress for the past ten years, from •the
era of war through the era of reconstruc
tion to the era of peace, more than fills the
measure cif an honorible ambition. Look
ing back over these, ten exciting years I can
claiin not only that I have committed lio
act which- has proven the conftilence mis
placed that called me to this position, but
also that I have striven in its official duties
to administer the parliamentary law with
the same impartiality with which the upright
judge upon the bench dectd,ess,questions of
life and liberty. " To faithrtilly protect the
rights of the minority, as 411 as to uphold
the rights of the majority in `the advance
ment of the public business to remain calm
and unmoved amidethe excitements of de
bate, to temper and restrain asperities, and
to guard egemst personal antagonisms, to
perform acceptably' the complex and often
perplexing duties of the chair without par
tisan bias, has been my constant endeavor.
It is gratifying, therefore, that of the many
hundreds of decisions made by me, often
on the instant, none have been reversed,
and scarce any seriously questioned. How.
much I owe to the uniform kindness and sup
port of the members over whom I have pre
sided is difftpult to express in words. It has
been bounded by no party lines, and con
trolled by no, politicaleffiliations, and 'I re
joice that I have been able to attest my ap.
preciatien of this support while zealously,
defending principles before the people.—
Thiti defense has never been coupled with
personal assaults on any of the eminent pub
lic men with whom I have differed. No as
pensions on their charaCter have dishOnbred
my tongue. No epithets or invectives have
fallen from my lips.
" But the clock admonishes me that• the
Forty-Second Congress has already passed

Mr. Colfax read his 'address in a 1 ar and
distinct tone, audible in all parts o , i gal

all the laws, and so far as lay, in my posyer

three of the former States of the Unionliad
not been restored to their Federal relations.,
It seemed to me wise that no new questions
should be raised so long as that condition) of ;
affairs existed. • Therefore -the . past f ever'
y e ars, so far as I could control events, lu.ve
been consumed in the effort to restore har
mony, public credit, commerce and all the
arts of peace and progress. It 'is my firm.
conviction that the civilized world is tend.
ing toward' republicanism, or governtiaent
by the people through their chosen' retire;
aentatives, and that our own great Reps„ iie
is destined.to be the guiding etar.to all . Oh:
era. Under our Republic we support*
artily less than that of any European power
of ,any staidinp.anda navy less -than'that
of either of at least 'five Of, them. There
could be no extension of territory on this ,
continent which would call far an increase
of this force; but rather might such exten
sion enable us to diminish it; •' •. •., •-• • --
" The theory of `government changes With
the general progress. Now that. the tele
graph is made available for communicating
thought, together with rapid transit, by
steam, all parts of a continent are made
contiguous for all purposes of government,
and communication between the extreme
limits of the country made easier thl it
was'throughout the old thirteen .Stat es at
the beginning of our national existence.'
"The effects of the late civil strife have

far as Executive influence.ean avail. SoPial
equality is not a subject to be legislated :up

advance the social status of the color ed
man except to give him a fair chance to tde
velop what there is good in him. Give haul
access to schools, and when he travels' let
him feel assured his conduct will regu
late the treatment and fare he will receive.
The States lately at war with the igerierat
Government are now happily rehabilitated,
and no Executive control is exercised in any
one of them that would not be exercised in
any other State under 'like circumstanceg.•

sion of, San Domingo, as a territory of-itlici-
Union.,!' It was pot a question of. my. seek
ing, but was a proposition from the nevi°.
of San Domingo, and which I entertained.
I believe now, as I did then, that it waslor
the-best interests of this country, for the
people of San Domingo, and all emmerned,
that the proposition should. be received -fa
vorably. It was however rejected constitu
tionally, and therefore the subject was never
brought up again by me. - I
