LIUCOLB. The city authorities >esterday, after their fare well Interview with Mr. Buchanan, proceeded to >vuiarnt Motel to welcome tbe Prudent elect to this city. On arriving at the Hotel they were vsbered Into one of the parlors, and In a few minutes It wji announced that Mr. Lincoln waa ready to receive tbem. .Marching up tbe ataira In doable file, tbe party with the rear brought up bv the Chief of Police, Capt Goddard, were In troduced into the pre tence of our future President. Mayor B?rret having been introduced lo Mr. Lincoln by Dr Uiake, Commissioner of Public Buildings,'proceeded to address him as follows : Mr. Lincoln : As tbe President elect, under the Constitution of the United States, you are soon to stand In the august presence of a great nation of freemen, and enter upon the discharge of the dutlea of the highest public trust known to our form of government, and under circumstances t??. iuc ltuuc anu ^riiianfnrv 01 inf At1-" public, which nave no parallel In tne history of our country.

And as It Is the first time lu my life, since the present phase of politics has presented itself m this country, that I have said anything publicly within a region of country where tbe Institution of slavery exists, 1 will tike this oc<~?slon to say tbat 1 think very much of the ill f?eling that has existed and still exists between the people in tbe section from whence I rime and the people here, Is dependent upon a mism.der tanaing or one another. 1 therefore avail myself of this opportunity to assure you, Mr. Mayor, and all the gentlemen present, that I have Dot now, and never have bad, any other than ns kindly feelings towards you as to the people of inv own section I have not now, and never have bed, any disposition to treat you !n any respect otherwise than as my owa neighbors 1 have not now any purpose to withhold front you any of the benetlts of tie Constitution, under any circumstances, that I would not feel myself constrained to withhold from my own neighbors; and I hope, In a word, that when we shall become better acquainted? and I say it with great confidence?we shall like *-arh other better. 1 thank you for the kindness of this reception. The members of the City Councils were then severally Introduced to the President elect, to gether with a few of our private citizens, and after a few minutes of social conversation the parly re tired In introducing the Chief of Police, (Capt. (ioddard,) Mayor Brrret pleasantly added, "the gentleman who attends to th?? rimo of tv>? " to which Mr. Lincoln laughingly replied. u I hope he will continue in his folly." Everything passed off pleasantly, and the visiters were not a little gratified by the "western'' cordiality of > their reception. TO-DAY Senator Crittenden bad an interview with Mr. Lincoln this morning, as also did several Repub lican Janitors. and a few delegations from New York and other States, representing various in terests; but the vicinity of the Lincoln parlors was almost entirely free from the rush of place-hunters * * with which it was yesterday thronged FaBKWELL IitTIKVlKW OF THE ClTT ACTHoRl Tiss with Pbsmdint Bcchasam ?Yesterday, the Mayor *nd Boards of Alderme i and Common Council took formal leave of tbe President, prior ' to his retiring from the Executive office.

Tb!? ?om wm argued Plaid for tto ptouturumor. A<jV Rabit ? Mr Rarer, the renowned horse-tamer, lectured last night before an audience that would have aeemed large In any other build!ug than tha immense atructure erected for the purpoae. Among it the audience we noticed Vice President Breckinridge and Mr Hamlin, the Vice President elect, Mr. Reward, Senators Bright and Kennedy; Meaara James B. Clay, Sherman, and Henry Winter Davis, of the Houae, 4c , Ac ; and moat of our own leading cltlzena, including, of courae, all who consider themaelvea knowing on "hoa?" rmttera Meaara. Davis and Naat. of the N. Y. Illustrated papers, were bobbing about too, taking sketches of the building and audience. About 8 u aa. n ?? ?V - - - u ciuci mr. narey waixea imo uis arena, an ele vated earth-and-straw-covered platform, bounded by ropes, and made bla bow He la of good figure, but not robuat, and wears neat aide whis ke a and a mustache, altogether not quite the stripe of mau one would Imagine as a horse con queror. Mr Rarey commenced his lecture by a descrip tion of bis experiences In taming the celebrated horre Cruiser, the story of which is familiar to most newspaper readers, but which was made in teresting by Mr. Rarey's animated recital. After s.ime further remarka upon prevalent mistakes In the manner of treating the horse, which is natu rally affectionate and disposed to be friendly, the famous horse Cruiser was trotted out. He is of elegant proportions, (race home,) and In appear ance did not come up to the ferocloua Cruiser of the mind'seye. The lecturer, however, explained that the Cruiser of to-day is a very different look ing animal from the Cruiser of old, who, In hia vicious, unhappy state, showed hia temper in his eye and motions, but who now exDressea th* nna. ration of a peaceful conscience. Cruiser waa now put through a variety of motlona, shook bands or hoofs. with Rarey, went to bed in the straw with Rarey, Ac., Ac., in the most docile nianner Next waa introduced a handsome cheannt horse that had been aent to Mr Rarey for experiment lng. He was described as not eminently vicious, but as baulky in harness and under the saddle. The animal was permitted to walkabout for a few minutes to get the bang of the gas-lights and the audience The lecturer then proceeded to manipu late the head and fore legs of the animal with light caressing touches, and having established a good understanding, adroitly strapped up the near fore lee in the manner so many times described Meantime Mr Rarey was carrying on the work of his lecture in desultory style atlnvcrvals of his work, and hereabouts took occasion to ridicule the assertion that he affected his control over horses by using drugs, the oil of rhodium, Ac. He thought that tying a bottle of oil to the nose of a refractory boy would be quite as likely to prove effectual as the same process upon a horse In taming the horse it was necessary to give him time to try bis strength with the operator. Kind I?>icu< c1 aim (irocvrrauce were me requi site* The bone It so constituted that be will continue only a brief iwrlod to otter resistance when be finds it ineffectual. Noticing tbe methods variously resorted to to suhjuga'e tbe horse, be mentioned tbat tbe shyness of the animal under treatment about having bis head touched, was occasioned by tbe fact tbat Its owner, having tried various means of compelling him to move when baulky, bad bit tbe horse's ear severely, occasioning tbe sensitiveness to touch witnessed ! Mr Rarey concluded bis usual strapping, throwing, and taming bis subject, and then proceeded to give some useful lessons in tbe proper manner of mounting a horse with as little leverage as possible, and snowed by experiment that It is easy to set foot In the stirrup and effect a seat, while the saddle simply rests upon the horse's back without girtb-fastenings Li /V?.T -? A _ I " - * vu ibiri a nurse vol woui go," was next shown. This is simply by drawing on therein to the right or left, and turning him in a circle, a compulsion he cannot resist, until he gets dis gusted and concludes it pleas^nter to' go ahead " A plain snaffle-bit and single rein w<is recom mended for breaking horses to the saddle Considerable amusement was now created by the Introduction of a couple of Shetland ponies, one of which, weighing 7?X pounds only, the lecturer supposed was the smallest full-grown horse in the known world. {Mr. Karey here picked the pony up in his arms and carried him across the arena, causing great laughter.] .Mr. R said he Introduced these ponies to Illustrate the influence of climate upon animals There was no doubt that the ponies of Shetland had deterio rated from the horse standard In size solely from the severe climate and poor fare they had been accustomed to for centuries. There was no telling how small thev would grow If taken yet further north. [Laughter ] Mr. Rarey next Introduced a young hors*, the property of W. T. Naylor, of this cltv A letter accompanying the horse, read by Mr. Rarey, stated that it was an unbroken colt, never yet backed Several attempts had l?*n tn mount him, but the parties had always be?u thrown. Rarey bad rather a time of it to get hi* inevitable strap* upon thla colt, who kicked up before and behind with no little vim Mopping his brows with his white handkerchief, ana re turning with unflagging patience to his charge, the great horse-tamer at last bad his subject on three le^s, and after some puzzled wonderment the animal turned a penitent look towards his conqueror, saying unmistakeably, "Its no sort of use. Mr Rarey, I cave," and down he wilted Into the straw, and from thenceforth was a borw of another mind. Mr. Rarev's lecture was conclusive and satis factory we nresume, to every mind present, as to the value or bis system of training. He was list ened to throughout with the closest attention, and the disposition of the audience to applaud inces santly was only restrained by the repeated requests of tbe lecturer, as the noise was calculated to dis turb an animal so sensitive and nervous as the horse.

The President entered the room accompanied by Dr. Blake and Hon. Horatio King, Postmaster General, and pro ceeded to bid farewell to the several offlcars and clerks. There were no set speeches, but each Craon was introduced by the chief officer of his r\arfm*nt an/) ? ?...t ??? w?uiut muoac oa ?uc uanu nnu j a brief expression of good wishes for future health and prosperity completed the ceremonies After the close of this interview the judges and officers of the Court of Claims were announced, who, In like manner, paid their respects to the Chief Magistrate. Commission Refused ?It seems that the reason why Capt Henderson, of the Henderson Guards, resigned bis command of that company was that be did not feel like taking the customary oath of allegiance to his country. On bis way with his lieutenants to take the oath, he expressed > hesita tion about the matter, when tbey immediately informed him that they would accept his resig nation, as loyal soldiers desired to be commanded by a loyal captain. The resignation was accord ingly tendered and accepted, and the company tendered the command to Mr. Foxwell, whs is a thorough-going soldier, and he accepted the place promptly.

Just aa he pushed the door open Foley had finished loading It, and Murphy drawing back, attempted to cIom the door.
