All carriages and horses will bt excluded frrsa the Capitol tquare, whether In tbe use of the military or otherwise. There arrangements have been made with the desire, that the gieatest possible arcemtnodation be given to the people to witness tbe ceremonies. The arrangements within the Capitol were, from necessity, formed with reference to the limited capacity of the Senate Chunkir; and those for the exterior were deemed moit spprnpuate. with a view of afford!Dg the assemMed multitude an opportunity of witnessing the I naugnration. At ten o'clock, your reporters were at the capital. it was already surrounded by a multitude oi thousands ot people, ot all ages and sexes,find Irom nil quarters ot the Union. By dint ot climbing up along tii*? railing ol tar narrow at airway, through and over the heads of the crowd, we reached tne door of the reporters' gallery, aud were admitted on condition of pleading the ingress of a detach* tmnt ol strangers who blocked up the gate. The scene in the semi-circular gallery was interesting in the extreme. It was exclusively occupied by Indus, presenting all the colors ol the rainbow in their gay attire, snd warbling like a (lock ol robins in uu orchard ol cheny trees. The square gallery behind the reporters was packed to its capacity wuh the sovereigns. On the lloorot the clumber below, the Senators were crowded to the outer circle ol scHts, the members of the Home occupying the space outside the bar usually appropriated to lobby members. A number ol ex-members, urmy officers, <.Vc , were intermixed among them. The area immediately in front ol the Secretary's table was left vacant lor the distinguished officials, as designated in the programme. At live minutes past 12 o'clock, the Secretary of the Senate rapped his hammer upon the table, and the ilev. Henry Sljcer, chaplain of the Senate, delivered the following PRAYER. Father, Son, and Iloly Spirit, the ever living and blcsisd llod : wo presume to come lore thy presume* with (Jt-ep humiliation, love, and gratitude, and fervent thanksgiving Wo bless Thee forte* number'.ri favors wtta whien toon host crowned aud crowded cur existent*, personally and Individually.

Mr BkKRiro?I hope the proceedings of the day will not be interfered with by the discussion which this subject will necessarily elicit; and, therefore, I move thdt the resolution be postponed till tomorrow. Agreed to. The Supreme Court then came in, in their long bench gowns, Chief Justice Taney bringing up the reur. Next followed the diplomatic corps, headed by the Baron Alexandre de Bodiaco,tlie Russian Plentpoieniiaiy. Next came the Senate Committee of Arrangements. followed by ex Vice-President Dallas, and Mr Fillmore, Vice-President elect Mr. Fillmore took the oath ol office, and then being conducted to the chair by Mr. Dallas, he addressed the Senate as follows:? mr. fillmore's speech. Senators-Never having been honored with a seat on tble floor, and never having acted a* the pres'dlng cflleer of any legislative body, yon will not doubt my sincerity wben I assure you that I assume the ntsponsibile duties of this chair with a conscious want of experience and a just apprehension that I shall often need your frdeM^anggestions, and more uften your indulgent forbearance. I should indeed feel oppressed and disheartened did I not recollect that the Senate la composed of eminent statesmen. equally distinguished for their high Intellectual endowments and their amenity of manners? whose persuasive eloquence is so happily tempered with habitual courtesy as to relieve your presiding offlerr from all tbat would be pa'nful in the dlsoharge of bis duty, and render his position as agreeabls as it must he instructive. Thus eneonrsged and sustained. 1 enter upon the duties assigned me firmly resolved to dieoharge them with la-partiality, and to the best of my ability; bat 1 should do injustice to the grateful emotions of my own heart, if I d*d not, on this occasion, express my warmest thanks gor the diatlnguiehsd honor tbat uas been conferred upon me, in being called by the voice of the na'lon to preside over yonr deliberations. It will net, 1 trust, be deemed inappropriate to congratulate you upon the soene now passing before ue. 1 allude to it in no partisan aepeot, but a* an ever recurring event contemplated by the constitution Compare tbe peaceful changes of Chief Magistrates of this rspnhiio with the recent sanguinary revolutions In F.urope. There, the voioe of the people has only been htard amid the din of arm* and the horrors of domestlo oonvlcts; but here, in our own favored land, under the guidance of our constitution, the resistless will of ths nst.on has, from time to time, been peacefully expressed by tbe free suffrages of the people, and all have bowed in obedient submission to their deoree. The administration which but yesterday wielded the destinies of this great nation, to day quietly yields up its power, and, witbont a murmur, retires from the capital. 1 congratulate jou, Senator*, and I congratulate my country, upon Jthi'Bs oft-recurring and cheering evidences of our capacity for self government. Let us hops tbat tie sublime spectacle which we now witness may be repeated as citen as the people ehall desire a change of rulers, and that this venerated constitution and this glorious t "nicn may endure forever. At five minutes past twelve, the ex-cabinet, headed by Mr. Buchanan, came ru, and were seated within the bar. A pause rf fittt en ininutet occurred, when the Hon. Truman Smith came in, and, as he entered, there were cries ot "there's tiie President," " mere's Uie i'residont," which were suddenly changed into an uproar ot laughter on the discsvery of the mistake. At half-past twelve the President elect, leaning on ihe arm of ex-President Folk, marched up the aisle lo a place near the Vice President, and after some lew words of conversation with Chief Jtisliet Taney, the order of procession, beginning with ihe Marshal of the District, and followed by the Supreme Court, Senute and House Committee of Arrangements, President and Viee President elect, the Cabinet, the Corps Diplomatique, \'c., A c , passed out ot the Senate to the Rotunda, thence to the platform fronting the eastern portico. And here, in front of a multitude numbering probably not less than thirty thousand people, General Taylor delivered his inaugural address, and took the oath of oflice. It was soon over, and then the swarm of soveieigns rent the air with their hearty cheering; and to the pe aling of artillery and the strains of martial music, they immediately were put in motion from Capitol Hill, under a lively snow etcim from the southwest to keep them moist and comfortable. Uiexe were perhaps thousand people in the hcuises and on the line of the avenue to the White House?one mile?who did not go ap to the capitol, but waited to see the return of the procession to toe executive mansion. The procession returned, and at about half-t ast one o'clock Old Zack was duly installed in the White House, with such a muss meeting gathered in front, aw siting admission, as is onlv to be seen on inaugural occasions. When we left, at two o'aiock, ihe pressure was so great as to defy admission to an outsider lor an hour to come. Central Cass was present in the Senate, and actually appeared delighted with the proceedings. When Old Zack was introduced into the Chamber, he was evidently embarrassed ; but he soon recovered himself, and looked over the imposing scene wilh the coolness of an observation of a field of battle. The Piesident had no sooner taken his oath thun it commenced snowing, which at three o'clock is suspended, only, we apprehend, from the heavy and lowering clouds, to be followed by a rainy night. The inauguration day of President Folk was rtiny and most disagreeable; that of General Harrison was cloudy arid cold; and, as well as We remember, that of Mr. Van Duren wound up with a storm. As tar as we can sscerlain, no lile was lost and nn limhv vi prr hrnLtn nmnmr oil fhi> .wufrnmrr multitude during the proceedings of the day. ANOTnKK ACCOrNT. W . sinsQTON, March 5. 1H19?2 I'. M. The inauguration ib over ! " General Zachary Taylor, of Louisiana," has tuken the oath to preserve, protect and delend ttie constitution, and is now duly installed is President of the lnited States! The occasion is a solemn and imjortaat one. May the auspicious manner in which it lias gone off, prove a happy omen ol our continued prosperity end eminence ! At an early hour this morning, the masses h< gun moving; and long belore the hour uppointed for forming the procession, the leading streets were crowded. Several of the houses on the avenue wire handsomely decorated, and the national flag waved in graceful folds in every direction. For hours the hDUKHy and windows were filled with groups of happy fact*. Lverybody (termed determined to enjoy himself; (ohtics were forgotten for once, and a feeling of nl'tifithm whs visible on evrry countenance. As un evidence of the immense numbers uf people, competent jodgeu assort that there are twice ns many frupfris in the city nsw, ne there were at Harrison's lsnuguratien.

The progruwme of arrangements contemplated foreign ministers, Arc , should also lorm in procession; but it wiis found to be a betwr arrangrnnMit for ihese dignitaries to assemble in the Senate chumber, and await there the arrival of the President elect. In thia order, then, and amidst the rolling of drums, and deafening cheers of the people, the procession moved down the avenue till it arrived at the living House, where the ex-President, Mr. Polk, hud taken rooms. The appearance ot the avenue was inaenifieent? the gay colors of the military?the numerous llu?8 llying?the dense mass ot people i acked throughout its entire length of nearly a mile and a hint, presented a scene scarcely, ll ever, equalled. Pennsylvania avenue, it is generally known, is one ot the most beautiful streets in the world, ll is about three tunes the width ol Broadway, New York, and as straight as an arrow The whole procession, and ttie immense multitude was, therefore, spread out as if ou a map before you. Add to this, the crowds ot beautiful women with which every available window and balcony was lilted?the animation which lit up eveiy face, and you have sums idea of the nmguificoi oe of the tubhau. Col. May was conspicuous in the procession. He rode with the troop of dragoons, and his commanding form, lowering full a head and shoulders over those around him, attracted very general attention. lint to return. The procession having arrived at the Irving House, halted, and in a tew minuies Mr. Polk, ex-President, came out and took his seat in the carriage with the President. General Taylor received him with great cordiality, and seated nirn on his right hand?taking himself the left of the carriage. Mr. Polk received three hearty cheers from the crowd. This incident over, the procession then continued its course to the cupitol?incessant cheers accompanying it the whole distance. Whilst the distinguished were preparing to proceed to the Senate chamber, we?not being quite so ceremonious, took a short cut to the " upper house." It was very brilliant, but very hot withal. The gallery was crowded lull of ladies, to whom it was exclusively devoted; and, parpatenlhttit, we would remark (for once forgetting our gallantry, in our veneration tor truth,) that a ciowd ol the "gentler" sex exclusively, is the most hard-hearted in the world. Ladies have no mercy on one another?this is a fixed tact?and the awlul squeezing which we witnessed, almost made our huii stana on end. Never nund, the dear crcutures are not to blame after all?its only a litt.'e human nature. The gallery wus packed so densely, that several ladies tainted. Our colleagues will describe at length the proceedings 111 die Senate, A c , and we wi.l, therefore, merely allude to them. In front of the Secretary's desk, seats were arranged tor the President and Vice President, the ex-President and ex-Vice Presidents. immediately in front, and facing them, w ere seated, on the right, the members of the Supreme Court in their gowns, on their left, the foreign Ministers in their uniforms, and some of them covered with orders. The Senators, ex<x.niitnvu An. fill*.*! ?li#? ri'inn i m\*r ni f h*? rlinmhi>r The cheers outside gave note that the President hud arrived, and everybody was on the tip-toe of e xpretaticn. All at once theie was a cry of " the Tret ident," " the President " Evger heads were Btretched out?conversation was instantly suspended, and every eye was strained towards the door, it was opened, and in marched .Senator Truman Smith! A universal burst of laughter, loud and prolonged, greeted him as soon us the mistake was discovered, and the gentleman from Connecticut made away with himself in the crowd as rapidly as possible. What rendered the incident still more laughable, is the fact that the honorable gentleman is or was a President?of the whig central committee?so there wus some truth in the report, after all. Hie tkirgeant-at-Aims soon after announced, in stentorian accents, "The President and ex-Prestdrnt," and Mr. President Taylor, leaning on the aim of Mr. ex-President Polk, entered the chumbcr. They took their places in the seats allotted to th< m. both being saluted by those immediately near thtm. The President snoke for som# minutes to Chief Justice Taney, and after wards to Judge McLean. The ex-Vice Presidents, Pallas and Johnson, occupied seats beside the President, and the ex-cabinet immediately beyond them. The order of procession to tlie eastern portico of the capital, where the oath Was to be administered, was then called out, and the persona named tooa the J laces assigned them. Notwithstanding the arrangements tiiude by the committee, permitting only certain persons within the cnpitol, the crowd w as tremendous, and it was some time belorethcy could take their places on the portico. The President rend his Inaugural befor- taking the oath, end he appeared to lie deeply allected, and stionply sensible of the responsible position he was i ccupy ing. lie addressed himself principally to the Judiciary and members of Congress, tuiilire his buck partially from the crowd in doing so.

Mr. Polk then stepped ft rward and congratulated linn ; Mr. Tuney next, then ihe sbinet, \-c. The ladies, tro. insisted on ahaKing hands with the President, all which ordeal he rcry good bumoredly submitted to. The precession then re-formed, and conducted the President to the Executive mansion, where it wrs dismissed. The President received a great number ol visits during the mormrgTo-night lie attends the three Inauguration Kails, going to the Military Hall at Curusi's first; the National next, and ending with ihe grand inauguration Ball at Judiciary eqtmre.

We have been thuB particular in describing what was to be, forreauonswhich will be seen herenlter. Let us now Mute our experience ol Una delightful and deli ctuble fete. We ariived at the scene of operations about nine o'clock, and having made our way through the crowd, we handed our tair companion over to the t?nder mercies ol the dressing room, wlulut we proceeded to the gentlemen'* uncloaking apartment Oh, Loid ! aucti a seen* ! Picture to jour imagination, dear reader, ifyou can, a small room, say U n feet by sixteen, and only about a th rd open tor grntb men, the balance being occupied by two white men and a logger, crowded with some two hundred persons, all anxious tu presa forward and get tickets for their clothes. The gentlemen behind the b.^r? that is to Bay the two white men and the nigger aforesaid?were not, however, to be hurritd into any unseemly haute in the matter. One would curtlully piu on a ticket; the Becond would then hand the owner a duplicate ol the number, and the gentleman from Africa occupied himselt by leisurely putung the garment awuy This deliberate procidure occupied, ?av, on an average, ten minutes lor each individual; some gentlemen being obliged to wait lor two hours Irefore they could get their tickets, while others, despairing ol their tuinscver coming, threw their cloaks, coats, huts and umbrellas in a corner, to take their lute. Well, so far, the circumstances were not. very auspicious; but, aever mind; there's the elegant bull-room, and that splendid supper, that will make am- nek- for all. Having with some difficulty got possession again ol our companion, we arrived at the en'ranc- to the ball-rn m. Such a splendid scene we never brf re bthcld Throughout its entire length it was densely crowded, nearly two-thirds of those present being ludies. They were endeavo- ing to nrouiernde about to ihe exquisite music of Ouug'l. It was a work of great difficulty, so many were there. We do not believe there was ever belorc such 11 collection of beaut it ul and elegantly dreBsed women in one room. The wax-lights displayed the spaiklmg ot thousands of d-umonds. All the foreign )egali< ns were present, some of them glittering wnh jewels und covered with orders. Mrs fU disco, tlie wile ol the Russian Minister, was magnificently dresi-ed in white satm, embroidered Willi gold; over this wua a crimson velvet tunic witn trt in, nlno embroidered with gold and studded w iili dismonds. ller head-dress was of crimson velvet, blazing w ith jewels. We nelieve tins is the same dress w hich she wore when presented to the Czar. Mr. Bodtsco's uniform was also elaborately elegant. Hie other ladies were dressed in hall costume, the Rust-tun Minister's lady wearing the en'y ceuit dress in the room. Some spasmodic effort3 were made to get up a set ot quadrilles, which measurably succeeded, although at the risk ot the lives of those concerned, not to say anything ot the toes smashed anil dresses toin. A wuliz and a polka or two succeeded, the great difficulty being the trial bow 6mall a si ace it could be done in. Crush ! "Heavens! what's the matter!"

Nine cluers were given with a will by the company, the ludiea joining tluir sweet vo.ces in tne siiotu, waiving their handkerchiefs, and darting killing lilancpn (at the old General. He ncrmnl greatly pleased at In- reception, nnd bowed his tbunks repeatedly. He looked better than usual. A gr< at number of ladies were then presented. Mr l?uchnnnn mid his reelects to the President, and introduced some ladies. "Ah, Mr. iluchunari, you also jitk cut the prettictt ladies," suid the Gen* eial, gallantly. " Why, the truth is," was the equally gallant reply, " I know that your taste and mitielfme in that rifted. What a number of I biaatilul women iliere is here to night!" "Yes; 1 have been so long amongst Indian Hand Mexicans, Mint I ran scarcity contain myself, surrounded as I now atii by so many iovily women !"

The room hud, by this time, somewhat thinned, ! although it was still very much crowded, and the heat was intolerable. One of the foreign ministers or attach fa, we could not learn which, fainted in going up the stairs from the bull room, lie tell , backwards, but was, fortunately, caught, and thus , saved in m being hurt. Dancing was kept up with great spirit till a lute or rutber early hour. I Some adventurous spirits made their way into ! the supper room about two o'clock. From their report there was little lost by being excluded there- i from. There wus then nothing to eat but some stewed oysters, about us palutableas sole leather; | bod >ce cream; and till worse attendance. Mr. Miller has reaped undying fame by the occasion.

As to overshoes, they were abandoned to tkeir fate. Time ended the grand national Inauguration Ball. It is a pity the arrangements were not better carried out; but still allowances must be made. There were at least five thousand persons pres nt, at d the manager*, perhaps not very aufait, under any circumeturces, were overwhelmed by the crowd From all that we could see, thrrre was not accommodation for five hundred gueets, much less five thousand.
