BEDFORD GAZETTE. —REWORD, Ta - FRIDIY : : • BAIL H, IS(>J. B. F Meyers, Editor 6c Proprietor. Inauguration of Lincoln. The new President was inMailed in oiSce, in the usual form, on Monday ia-t. (loo;I order, prevailed during the continuance o! the cere monies, and not one of ail the Black liej utii-.' cant present, suffered from poisoned meat, or the stiletto of the assassin. With all the tin fence aroused throughout the country by !!■>• election of Linqoln, his opponents have r. 1 y', quite arrived at that pitch oI insane 'm' >-] lenee which attempted to destroy ' , I M .i Buchana.v, by the poisoning t ! h e Vdioiai Hotel. After all the cowardly firs f I >he new, President and the "loss and feathers" prepara tion ol the military at Washington, Abraham Lincoln has been suffered to put on the Prvsi-t dential robes, without a scratch or a hurt, or even an insulting word. The people of thej South desire nothing more than their Constitu tional rights, and they do notdeman 1 the death of Mr. Lincoln as one of these. And .'lis s us to rematk that Mr. Lincoln's Inaugural Ad 5 dres (for which w? cannot sod room in this n-t sue) does not propose any plan of Constitution al settlement by which the rights of the South ern people would be protected against the at tacks of Northern fanaticism. He refuses to' endorse the Crittenden plan, the Border State, p)au, the Etheridge plan, or even the Peace Conference plan , suggested and adopted by members of his own party. -He proposes no remedv for the wasting dis#tf that is sapping the vitals of the Union. It is true he would be satisfied with the calling of a National Conven tion, but Mr. Lincoln well knows ihat such a body could not be assembled until it would be too late te save the country. The uncompro mising a'titude of the new President, the com position of his cabinet by the exclusion of Bell and Gifmer and the selection of Chase and Biair, and the rejection of every plan of com promise by his friends in Congress, wlil operate to drive Maryland and Virginia out of the U nion in thirty days. This is no idle prediction, and mark our word, if this Republican admin istration does not very soog make some move ment looking to a peaceful settlement of its dif ficulties with the South, there will be more sutes in rebellion against it than those whose fundamental law -ecognises the institution of slavery. The people will not suffer any party to bring d'sgrace and ruin upon the country, merely to enable it to carry its philosophical abstractions into practice. If the Constitution is to be overridden by the Chicago Platform, if business and trade are to be prostrated, interna! peace and domestic tranquility sacrificed, and dictatorships given to military chieftains, sim ply* because this Republican Administrations# unwilling to yield to a fair and honorable com promise with the South, then we are for revo lution, peaceful if it can be, forcible if it must. Let justice be clone to tho*" Q wnh ih hop- ot a compromise, have refused t F-in in the rash secession of their neighbors. L-t them be met fairly, and in a brotherly spr it, or the people of their sister state, the steady and true-hearted yeomen of Pennsylvania, will rise in their might, and in the n3me of the Great Jehovah, hurl from power and existence a patty that has perverted the Constitution, pci srr.pd the minds of the people with fanatical prejudice, and by polluting the pulpit, erected a stumbling-block to Christianity ilseif. T&e Now Cabinet. The rumor noticed in cur last, that John Bell was to be a mernbei of Lincoln's Cabinet, proves untrue. Mr. hell was not offered, nor did he desire, the apoointmer.'. There was a tremendous war between the ("ameronians and Chase-ites for the Treasury Department, which resulted in the discomfiture of the former.— Pennsylvania is insulted and outraged in hav ing a freetrader, Salmon P. Chase, of Ohio, pi3ced at the head of the Treasury. Mr. Lin coln rr.ignt as well hare re-instated Howell Cobb. Gen. Cameron, after much persuasion, consented to accept the Department of War.— The Cabinet :s compose ) of a majority of radi cals, and will be opposed to any and ali the Compromises suggested by the Border Sta^R.—- It is constituted as follows : Secretary of State , VV. H. Seward, N. V. £ Secretary of the Treamnj, S. P. Chase, Q. : Secretary cj War, Simon Cameron, P.i. Secretary of th& JVavy, Caleb B. Smith, lid. Secretary of the Interior , Mont. P!a:r, Md. P.M. General, Gideon Welles, Ct. JitVy. General , Edward Bates, Mo. Coasolotary. Mr Lincoln holds the following language m Lis Inaugural: "White the people retain th-ir virtue and vigilance, no Administration, by any extrem of wickedness or foliv, can very* serioui'v jure the Government in the shuit s;>.-ce >! ton' years." Consoling, truly 1 "Honest 01 i Abe'' 3 - the dear peopie not to be afraid, t r "no /id ministration (00, nut even his own) can enous ly injure the Govern merit in the short space o tour years!" The boot is on the other leg nr.iv When Buchanan was in office, Abraham an tils compeers were icces-ai.lly eagaged in ci, ling upon the people far God's sake to "cork up to the {oils and rebuke the roltea and cor rupl administration of James Buchanan," w hict was driving the country to rum and destruction How flatly this honest Republican gives th lie to all the Anti-Administration electioneer ing schemes, upon which he himself was eteva led to udice' TJE PHILADELPHIA PENNSYLVANIA;*. -It gives i us pleasure to be able to com mead the course ol tbn able Democratic journal with regard to tire TToubles which at present agitate and dis tract the public mina of the nation.

The fact that Senators Chandler t an 1 iling bam, of Michigan, had telegraphed and after wards written to Governor tUair, of that State, desiring him, if possible, to have the Legisla ture reconsider its refusal to appoint Commiss ioners to the Peace Conference at Washington, and suggesting themselves as proper candidate; for the appointment has already been stated.— ! The Governor, it appears, has abused the cor hder.ee reposed in him by allowing the modest and patriotic correspondence of these gentlemen to be made public. Roth letters appear in the Detroit Free Press ; both are to the same effect. That of Senator Chandler being the briefest and most pointed of the two, we publish it below : WASHINGTON, Feb. 11,1861.

TIIE PEACE PROPOSITIONS IN the SENATE The propositions for au adjustment'of tiie tional ditficulties adopted by the Peace Congf were laid before the Senate on Wednesday, on motion ot Mr. Crittenden, re.'crred to a lect Committee, consisting of Messis. Cull den, Biglrr, Seward, Thompson an f Truml; with instructions to repot t at 1 o'clock next; day. On Thursday, Mr. Crittenden presented the report ot the Committee, recommending the a- i doption of the propositions of the Feace Confer- ' ence. Messrs. Sewaid and Trumbuil, however ! forming a minority of the Committee, did no! j join in that recommendation, hut proposed in- i stead a resolution inviting trie States to take in- ! to consideration the propriety of calling a con vention for proposing amendments to the on- i stitoiion, and to express their wiil on the sob- ' ject to Congress. Mr. Doolittle staled that he should, at the proper time, of ft r a proviso ic the first section ot the proposition of the Peace J Congress, affirming that no State shall have ! [lower to - -cede from the Union, and that the j constitution shall be;, the supreme law ! ot the ianii. I'he jjii'll lesotutloil mid ; the proviso embrace (lie main points j of the Republican adjustment, presented to the Peace Congress by Air. TUCK, ot New tiamp- j -liir . At one * clock the Senate, by a vote' ot -id agauist i23—the RtJpublirins all voting

in tiie negative, except Air. Dtxon of Con necticut, and Air. Cameron absent—took up toe prop.'si'ioti of the Pei.ce Congress. \lr. Hale objected to its second reading, and alter some discussion the subject was laii over, and made the special order lor half-past twelve S- j clock Friday. PROBABLE FAILURE OF THE PEACE PROPOSI- , n .Ns.—A dispatch to the New York llerultl ot yesterday, says the programme of the Peace U eigret-s is almost hopelessly !o-t. I'he s-lect committee o( the Senate reported 0:1 Thu-J iv but Air. Male, on behail of tt.e R-peblican Senators, insisted on the rules, and prevented the reading of the resolutions. Mr. BiHer in troduced a resolution to suspend this rule, si IJI as relates to resolutions and bills providing for amendment to the Constitution. Unless Mr. Piglet's resolution pie vails, final action will be impossible. iMucii indignation is manifested at the fac tions course ot the Republican Senators. Ail is confusion and gloom. Nothing can save the country* bat to take the sense of th e people to instruct the next Congress, provided hv Air. S - vain proposition for a Convention of the Slates, ut ey r\ body knows Congress has no control of that vu: j-ct and could only express the opin -1 not Congress for the benefit of the people.— Air. Bigler, on the other hand, proposes to take the opinion of the people for the benefit of Con gress, which is far more sensible. THE TARIFF BILL PASSED.— The House of Repr, -entati v< s on Monday agreed to all ol the Senate's amendments to the Tariff bill, except tsat imposing a tax 01 tea and coffee, which •as rejected. The bill wa* then referred to a Fnrmitlee of Conference—Measrs. Bigler, SHU uoi.san ! Hunter, on ihe pait of the a --d Messrs. Sherman, Phtips and Morehead, •; 1 the part Of Ibe House. Alter c. m-ult lii jn, the Committee of the Senate receded hum ti.e amendment in dispute. The report was adr,;>- lel in both Houses on Wednesday, and the bill is now,by the Presi lent's signature, a law. \ Sfiiug of Pearls For the benefit of the Republican literati we have collected and now publish a lew ol the choicest literary morceuus that h !| from Hie el oquent hps of Honest Old Abe.

Ji is worse than a failure, />r it will increase dis trust ant acrimony of feeling. Several sucti failures will infallibly terminate negotiation in in o rriipt incn.ier, disgust tne border Slate?, and drive them into secession. I'he manner in which the Republican I a- i deis arid managers have acted in reght J to th matter of u (justinei!!, has open as disgracejul to 1 '.iein as it hjs been dangerous to the country. 1 They first denied the necessity of it, and then j when forced to acknowledge t 1 it neces-itv , ap proached it in flie base spiut of the horse j >c\- ey, or the (nickering tub-rda-mer. Tn-.r lai - guage to the complaining States of the Se.it. was, "We are not disoosecf to give you anv thing, but if we must, why, what is the | V'-uJti lake 1 Now be moderate, or you'll eiss a bargain. We are determined to get as much and yield liitle as possible. Man* ofoui people are violently opposed to yielding an inch, and so if you de.ruu I much, you wiil bleak off the trade, and we'll have to tiHit it out." 3 This is the base, trading spirit in which the grave question ot a naii.m's saltation has beer met by the Republican managers 11 the Sen ate, in the Mouse of Representatives, in the Peace Conference, and 111 the Slate L-gM it ires. I hey have ti-ait as if iliey were d--aliritf in trinkets, in caA off clothes, or in some other ar ticle ol little or no value. From the 6th of November, that unlucky nay tha! inaugurated Rlack Republican ascen dancy, up to this hour—four months have these men b-en huckstering, higgling, chaff-r --ing. Iu the meantime a new Confederacy ol six disgusted States (verv soon there will be I eight,) has sprung up. The border slave States are a! m- !•-It to u,. Thev demand a just, full and final settlement, or else will very soon leave us and yet the Republicans stili in that same wretched chattering which cost us the cotton States. Of a'd the plans thus far proposed, the Crit fenderi plan (including future Territory) is the one that has hit popular favor. The masses North and South have rallied to it. The pub lic mml has fixed upon it as the plan to be adopted. • irgin'a, in calling the Peace Conference, threw before it Liat plan wiih some essential amendments, one of' which was to the effect that negroes shall not become citizens and shall not vote for Feder.-,! officers. The Peace Con ference disregarding the terms ot Virginia's in vitation, very uncerimoniouslv and summarily threw the Crittenden plan under the ta! |e. It then set to work to hatch a substitute fur it, and after three weeks' incubation, and by a "snap judgment" against the New York dele gates, presented us with the plan now submit- mr-urdami^ hnm , - L " * - Is this plan acceptable*? Cnti. sdatir.glv, we { say, no. ft was not the choice even cf 'he C invention. A majority nfthe deb-gates w-,-e against it. The radiral' wing of the Republi can party i? violently opposed to it. 8-ward j oven whose conserva'ism is the theme of sense- I cla-ratioo, and speaks in oracles ,ha, hear any and every in- 1 terpretation—Seward even has taken ground a gam-t it. To order to avoid misrepresenting - 'm, we take the rains to give the following extract from the proceedings of the Senate on I hursdav last : "Hv 2*nera! ronnt, Mr. C-itfenden o| K-n --tuc,;y, fro r th- Select Committee on the p- ip . o-it,on adopted by the Peace Convention, offer a r-port recommending the adoption'of the proposition.

States to consider amendments to the Constil.i tion, "alter these eccentric s.-ceion move mews" shal subside "sayjn one, two or three years. That's the way in. which Mr. L.nr o |n\ p„_ mier takes the plan of the p<- ac „ Conference As fir Congress, it w ill doubtless P a s ,t h v cisdain. But will this plan sati fy the South rhe cotton Stales iv,II sp„ upon it, and if the border St .tes shall be satisfied with it, then will they resemble a child pleased w.th a rattle M this thing satisfies them, then, indeed are they easily satisfied then they have put the coun try to much trouble and much distress lor no purpose. Their exciteme u ,, their agitation, have been useless and absurd. They been "Like ocean into tempests tossed. o wait a leather, or to drown a fly."
