saint MARY’S BEACON LEONARD TOWN. MO. THORSOAY MuRNINU, MARCH 7. HMI Lincoln's Inaugural. The late hour at which we received ibtr President's Inaugural, prevents os from giving it in full in our pweit issue. Without wc have laisundcnsttooJ its mean* iig. it breathes a warlike upirit. Mr. • Lincoln, however, intimates that he will not make war. unless war is agreeable to the American people or should the mean* of making war be withheld from him. We take Mr. Lincoln** declaration* npon this paint to mean, that he will cocrcc and sub jugate the South, if the North will ntain him. Mr Lincoln asserts that the Union is perpetual and indistmetable under any and all circumstances. “It follows, from these views, that no Stale upon its own mere motion, can lawfully get out of the Union.” Blr. Lincoln says he intends to nae the power of the government ta “hold, \ occupy and possess the property and place* belonging to the government, and to col- j lect the duties and imports.” We con strue this to mean, that he intends to exe cute the Inwa of the United States within ; the jurisdiction of the seceded which is war. Notwithstanding iheav declarations, however, he makes as argu-; went in favor of peace and advocates | conciliatory policy. Sp**akiig of the j Inaugural, the Snn in substance says: It j proposes to ths State* unconditional auh- 1 mission to Black Republican rule, with ■ the alternative of war and subjugation. It { is sectional and mi*ch*-ivus. and studious- j ly withhold* any sign of recognition of that 1 equality of the States upon which Union , alone can be obtained. If it meant what j it aaya, it is the knell and requiem ef the i Union, and the death of hope. It eW*s with a series of vague and unmeaning professions of concern for tko welfare of; the country; a comparison of results and consequences between Union and disun- i ion and a suggesti on in favor of a eonvea- • tion of the States to amend the Constitu-' tion. We give below the sever*! para graphs of the Inaugural which refer to the subject ef coercion that our readers may j draw their own infereuou* : “It follows, from these views, that no | State, upon its own mere motion, can law- ! fully out of the Union—that rssolvaal and urdinanceß to that effect ere legally | void;.and that acts of viol* nr* within any j State or States against the authority of th- ; Suited States are insurrectionary or revo- { lotionsry. according to circumstances. “I therefore consider, that in view of the * constitution and the laws, tin* Union is un broken. and to the extent of my ability, I ) shall take care, as the constitution express- ’ ly enjoin* upon me, that the Uws> of the , Union W faithfully executed iu all the j States. I * Being this I deem to be only a simple ■ duty on my part, and 1 shall perform it *• j far a* nraciicahb, unless my rightful mas- i ter*, the American people, shall withhold! the requisite menu*, or in sumo auikorUn- I tivc manner direct the contrary. *T trust that this will not he regarded at ! a menace, but only as the drvlared purpose ; of the Unian. that it will constitutionally j defend and mnintniii itself. Iu doirgthis, * there need be no bloodshed or violence, ! and there shall be none unices it be forced ! npo the national authority. “The power cou6dd to me will be used ! fo hold, occupy and posses* the proper! t j and places belonging ;o the government, I >ud to collect the duties nnu imposts, but j leyoud wbst tray he m vessary for then | ♦ jrct*. there will be no invasion, no using i •>f force against or amongst the people any ' h*c. * h here hostility to the United States in any interior locality shall be so great and M universal as to prsvent competent resi dent citiscu* from holding the federal off. vs, there will be uu attempt to force ob noxious str ngara among th* for that t •hject. | “While the strict legal right may xi?t in the government to enforce the exerci*e f these oCccs, the attempt to do so would be so irritating and so nearly impracticable with all, that 1 deem it better to foregsf r um lime the uses of such office*. The mail*, udl.m repelled, will continue to be furhished in all parts of the Union. “Be far as possible, the people every where bldl hate that sense of perfect secu lity which it most favorable to calm thought a&d reflection. “The course here indicated will be fol lowed, unless current events and experi ence shall show a modification or change to be proper; and in every esse sad exi gency n;y best discretion will be exercised according to circumstances actually exist ing, and with a view and a hope of a peace ful solution of national troubles, and the Tt storatiou of fraternal sympathies and si factions.” The Kail We arc authorised to state that the mail to this village will arrive hereafter at 10 o'clock, p. m., and leave the same night at 12 o'clock, Buuday night excepted.— Thu mail will leave Leonard Town for the lower offices on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 o'clock, a. m., returning every Tues day and Thursday at 4 o'clock. p. to.

Thu* a •lavchoider may not Ibe able to emancipate bis slave if the law of the State from which he comes prohib its it.
