TRIP TG WAStttNGTON.
On Sunday morning we were uthered into Watb
ington, and conveyedby the driver of a hack,, to the
" National Hotel." Our tntrtt to the Federal Capital
was anything but agreeable. Having arrived at the
National," and recorded our namea, were politely
informed lhat we could not have a roomnot even
beds upon the floor, aa the bouse was full. The oblig
ing proprietor. Mr; Deiier, dlreeied ui to iiiridry loJg
ing houset on the Avenue, aiyingthat he would board
ua that it to say let ua eat our mealt at hit table
but that we must find bedt elsewhere. Well, we un
dertook to follow bit direction!. The first lo which we
went wat kept by a Frenchman, who certainly thought
that wa were a parcel of scam pa. There were six of
ua applying for lodging!, and hit reply wit that he
could give ui three mittresseion the floor two to rich
mattress st the rate of ft I per night for each mem
ber of the party, the room lo be engaged for a week.
We thought $43 per week rather high for about ail
feet bedroom on the floor. A condition that thia French
proprietor inneied to telling hii room to ua wis, that
Mr. Dealer ihould recommend ua, and that be ahould
guarantee payment. The nel place we tried waa a pri
vate boarding house, kept, of course, by a widow lady.
Her bouse wat nearly full, but the would try lo ac
commodate three of ua. We toldhet- we did not care
much fur inconvenience, and the proceeded to show ua
our room. It was about ten by twelve feet, with three
single bed set up pretty close together, and a trundle
bed, luch ai ii generally used for children. Her price. ,
wis $2 50 per day. We told her we would take it,
add begged he,r to take out the trundle-bed, aa (.here
were but three of as then on the trail, we bad no use
for it, neither of ua having brought on any of our chil
dren. She replied that if ihe took out the trundle
bed ihe would hive lo chirge ut a dollar a diy
more. We bade her good morning, and projecuted our
seirch. We went to another private boarding-house ;
the landlady a widow of course said abe could ac
commodate us it the rate of $3 to $3 J per day. We
atked her why the charged 10 much. Her reply waa
unique and characleriatic ; ihe raid " ihe harvest wis
I f"Uy ripe, end that ihe. ought to ihrust In her tickle at
well at others" We had no idea of being reaped just
then,, for none of ut felt (bit we were ready for the
barveat. We very blandly told her that she waa per
fectly right, but that neither of the party felt that he
waa-yet ready for the shearing. About ion-down, af
ter a weary day's wandering in queit of lodging!,
through the influence of I friend we, procured a good
room at theJNational! Hotel,, and we now say that we
will long remember Mr. Deiter fur his kindneei ind
caiirlesy ia n ift our ejiwM
two or three hundred during the day, and it waa a spe
cial favor, which we cannot forget, lhat he bettowed
upon a i in giving ut one of hit belt rooms.- We cheer

be impossible for one man to read one-tenth of the ap

Inauguration. We were informed that already sever

Afesara. Eiitori : The thirty-second Cougreai haa
closed. The sixteenth Presidential term haa expired ;
and with a quiat Mgulayj rMnUing ths planetary
movement!, the wheeli of our natiouej government roll
on. There ia no government on earth whose progress it
attended with as Uttla ef material glare, and so mush of
tha moral auUime. Altnoat prophetic seems the design
of our starry banner ; for the progress of our free sys
tem! beara analogy to that of astronomical Science
Star after atar beama forth, and lakea iu luminous posi
tion in our political ikies. Thirteen at first now thirty-two,
and likely to increase indefinitely; yet doei
each appear, asiums its position, and revotys in its ip-
propnate aphere, as a sovereign State, so quietly, that
tha harmony of the whole ia umnarred whilst our fed,
erative system, like the power of gravitation, holds all
together, aud each in ita proper orbit. ' ,

cal asaociatinns, it was an occasion of surpassing gran
deur. I shall et burden your columns with a detail of
the civic and martial procession ; although it was quite
imposing. The day was inclement. Snow was driving,
and a chill northeaster made the out-door spectators
tremble. , "
Notwithstanding the untoward state of the weather,
thousand! upon thousand! were seen, at an early hour,
pressing toward! the various localities favourable for
beholding the pageant, or for witnessing the ceremon
ies of inauguration. None but the gentler sex were ad
mitted within the Capitol. In vain, did husbands and
gallants plead and remonstrate at tha "separation j but
the guard wai inexhurable ; and, in many casea, the
gallant lady refused to enter, and abode the beating of
the storm, rather than be parted from her attendant.
The rotunda waa crowded with ladiea, and outside, in
every, position, whence the procession could be seen,
hundred! and thousands of citizen! were clustered
Even the trees in the Capitol grounds were occupied by
men and boys, perched, crow-like, upon their boughs.
At noon, the storm somewhat abated ; and the grand
procession moved from the City Hall westward to Wtl
lard's Hotel, where thy received into the column the
President, the President elect, ind their suite. The
column was preceded by pioneers, snd headed by the
United States Light Artillery from Fort McIIenry,
ssveuty-five strong, with four brasa gum, four caissons,
and all the appliances for field-service. Then followed
the Mechanical Artillery, the " Young Guards," the
Uiiited Siatea Marine Band, two eompajiica.af L'uktd
States Marines, Washington Light Infantry, Iowe
Greys of Baltimore, accompanied by Voliandt's Band,
National Guards of Harriaburg, Pennsylvania, National
Greyi, the Washington Continental Guards of New
Yoik city, with Ad kin's Band, Mount Vernon Guards
of Alexandria, Martial music, Linnhardt'a Bands,
Washington Guards of Baltimore, Jackson Guards of
the asms city. Continental Guards of Washington,
Montgomery Guards, tha " First Baltimore, Sharp
Shooter'a" the same company that behaved so hand
somely at North Point the Walker Sliarp.clMters of
the District, the Boon Riflemen, the German Yagers
of thia city, and the tame of Baltimore, and the Virgin
ia Rifles of Richmond, Virginia. The military wai fol
lowed by the civic procession, composed of the Demo
cratic associations. Empire Clubs, citixeni, the judiciary,
foreign Minister!, clergy, committees, &c.
After receiving the Presidentthe President elect, $rc,
the imposing column moved along the Pennsylvania Av
enue to the Capitol, Arrived at the north side of the Capi
tol grounds, tha military wheeled into line, and the Presi
dent! ind their attendant! passed in front, receiving, in
their progress, the Customary salute, to which General
Pierce, uncovered, and standing erect in his carriage,
responded with much grce. y II and Preaideiit, Jf'ifl
tnote rode side by aide, in an elegant barouche carriage,
with the tops depressed, to ai to be in full view of the
multitude. The carriage wai preceded and followed by
marshals, with orange scarfs, batons, and uniform hous
ings. Arrived at the. north gate of the Capitol grounds,
the President alighted, and, appropriately preceded and
followed, passed under a covered way constructed for
the purpose to the .north door, and thence to the Sen-
ate C hamber. After being seated a few moments, in
front of the Clerk'i desk, a procession was formed, and
proceeded, through, the rotunda, to the east portico of
the Capitol, in the following order: Marshal of the
District of Columbil, Supreme Court of the United
Slates, Sergeant-at-arma of the Senate, Committee of
Arrangements, the President elect and tbe President,
Pitde'8eiam'OTd mem
pliilic corps, HeaoV of Departments,- Governors -of
States, Mayor of this city. In front erf the portico a
large platform bad been erected for the occasion, provi
ded with seat! and a desk. The spacious yard and ad-
loiiuug grouuoa were ntieu wun a ueuse maaa ol tuimau
beingf, eagerly awaiUng the approach of the official
cortege. Wben the new President appeared, he was
greeted with a cordial ahout of welcome, that made lhe

the oath of office, administered by that high functionary
and waa President of the United Stales! It Wai a
solemn moment a sublime scene! linked with the

without mannscrlpt, proceeded to deliver, in a clear aud

ennd lo few of our public men as an orator. And
whilst those Who associate the dignity of power and po
aition with slow movement and quiet manner, might
criticise the delivery of the inaugural, at being marked
by too much action and change of attitude, I think it ia
generally ooneeded that no address of th kind was
ever better, if so well delivered. Different passage! and
sentiments of the speech were heartily cheered, In the
progress of its pronouncement ; and the whole wa. very
well received, and is esteemed by men of all parties at a
stalesmanly, frank, and eloquent performance., ' Every
Christian heart must have been thrilled with pleasure,
when, with solemn voice and earnest attitude, and both
hands upraised to Heaven, the President exclaimed 1
"It mutt be eif that there is no national security , but
in the nation's humble, acknoufledgrd dependence upon
God and his overruling providence."
' The firat sentence of the iddresi was especially is
pronounced is touching and delicate as it wai modest
and magnanimous. " My- countrymen : It ii a relief
to feel that no heart but my own can know the person
al regret, and bitter sorrow, over which I hsve been
home to a position so suitable for others, rather than de
fcraW for myielf."

Mr. Cobden lately made a strong speech
at Manchester, England, to about six thou
sand persons, in which we find the follow
ing instructive and remarkable paragraph
concerning the effect of an European war
on, American commerce. As the view of
an intelligent foreign statesman, we com
mend it to the regard of our readers.
" have heard a great deal of trash
talked, and have seen a great deal more
written, about what is to bo expected
from the United States of America if we
declare war with France. Don't deceive
yourselves. America is not comine to put
herself in alliance with the Anglo Saxon
race, to make war with France. If you
go to war with France, I tell you what
the Unifed States will do. The first thing
they will do will be to assume a very bold
attitude, and require you instantly to aban
don that right of soarcb which you claim
ed and exercised during the last war. and
was left an open question even at the
peace. Now, you will be obliged instant
ly to renounce the right bf visiting Amer
ican vessels. America will no longer al
lowwith her tonnage now nearly equal
to your own, to do what you did 45 years
ago, wfth impunity ; and what will be the
consequence T. America will carry on the
commerce of Europe. Do you think,
with your navigation laws repealed now
I invite the merchants ol Liverpool, whose
organs talk so glibly of war, to pay atten
tion to what I say do yotrsoppose lhat,
with the navigation laws repealed, if there
is a war between France and England,

privateers having letters of marque ma
