Harrison As president of the u rioted slates took place yesterday the court ii of March by tie inauguration of the president at the Capitol preceded by the installation of the vice president in the presence of an immense multitude of citizens Olio had travelled from All parts of the Union to witness the imposing and interesting solemnities of the occasion. For several Days previously the Metropolis of tiie nation had been gradually filling with visitors from the More Distant states of the Union. Yesterday and the Day previously the contiguous counties of Maryland and Virginia and the City of Baltimore poured in in vast multitudes and parties of eager citizens who travelled on in various ways by land and water on foot in carriages or in boats to witness the inauguration of their beloved chief. It cannot reasonably be expected that we shall Lay before the Public a very detailed or accurate account of yesterday s interesting proceedings and ceremonies. To satisfy however the demand i or an Early notice we present the following sketches of the scenes and incidents of he Day. The ? a Early in Tho morning Long before Sun Rise the shrill whistle of the cars and the trampling of feet along Pennsylvania Avenue towards the hotels and boarding houses gave notice that our number of visitors was greatly increasing and that the auspicious Day of the inauguration had the morning broke somewhat Clou Dily and the Niiori Zon seemed rather to be Token Snow or rain. At Sunrise a Salute of 2g guns Vas fired from Tho mall South of their gun room by a party of the Columbia artillery its acting under the command of capt. Buckingham. Soon after the firing of those guns the entire body apparently of our citizens and numerous visitors roused from their slumbers thronged the Penn Sylvania Avenue and our principal streets and gave to them a very animated and Lively appearance the throng continuing to increase until 8 o clock when the various delegations military companies tip ipecac Noe clubs associations and citizens assembled at their respective posts. The after 10 o clock the procession moved from the head of four and ii Alf Street when p. Salute of three guns announced to Weir March towards the quarters of the president elect. Having there received general Harrison attended by his personal friends the procession moved on from the quarters of the president elect up e Street to 11th Sirwet up 11th to f Street up f to 15lh Street Down 15th to Pennsylvania Avenue Down Pennsylvania Avenue to the South Gate of the Eastern Yard of the Capitol exactly As Laid Down in the programme. Occupying a favourable position in front of Brown s hotel we noticed the procession As it passed along the most Public part of Pennsylvania Avenue to tie Capitol. The scene was Jig lady interesting and imposing. The ladies every where from the windows on each Side of the Avenue waved their handkerchiefs or hands in Token of to Weir kind feelings and general Harrison returned their smiles and greetings with repeated bows.

Buch in said he was instructed by the committee on foreign relations to move to be Dis i Quot rom Tho Cun iteration of the Resolution which had been referred to that committee Quot requesting the president to communicate to the Senate if not incompatible with the Public interest any correspondence u hich May have Talien place Between this l overrun sent and that of great Britain Relativo to the northeastern Boundary not heretofore communicated to the he a build state with As much Brevity As possible the Rea Sfiris which had induced the committee to believe that it would be inexpedient at the present moment to ub4sh the Torresi Indence to Wirich the Resolution a erred. It v. Publ be recollected by senators who had directed their attention to this Kulij dict that in Conse Pience of the correspondence already pubi.>5hed Between the two governments and to which he need not particularly refer it became the duty of great Britain to submit to our go Erin sent the profit of a for the Settle Merit of this Long disputed Boundary question. This duty had been p formed by the British government in the month of May 183�. The president did not approve of this proposed convention chief a because it contained no ultimate provision a hich must inevitably and finally determine the controversy Between the two countries. Indeed from its character it was quite probable that had it been adopted it would not have produced this result so much to be de ired and the was firmly convinced considering the Long delay the High state of Mutual irritation existing along Tho Border and the imminent danger of actual collision that the interest of both parties imperatively demanded the adoption of such treaty stipulations As must necessarily make an end of the question. The British government had since unequivocally coincided with the president in these sentiments and the two governments had already agreed upon the essential Points of a convention based upon Triesc principles and alike advantageous and honorable to both. Tipiere were still some provisions of this convention of comparatively minor Imp Ortance and involving detail rather princ file which had not yet been agreed upon but if it were the sincere desire of both parties As he believed it was to arrive at an amicable conclusion the negotiation must soon be successfully terminated. Under thes Quot Peculiar circumstances the committee believed that it could do no Good to either party whilst it might be embarrassing to both governments to publish to the world the correspondence and the dil Lerent projects and counter projects of treaties which had passed Between them. Or. B. Siirid that Iii of racial position in the Senate had afforded him free Access to All this correspondence. To had examined it with care and would now frankly state the impression which it had made upon his mind. Although he would not pretend to say Liat there were no omens of War in the conduct of Tho British government on our Northern Frontier yet this he should assert with much Confidence that in the negotiation itself relative to our northeastern Boundary nothing had occurred inconsistent with the sincere and anxious desire which i had Alvo tips been i Rof Ossed by that government to preserve the peace which now so a happily subsisted Between Tho two countries and to bring the question to a final and satisfactory con club Ion. Probably this expression might be too Strong and that he ought to have qualified the general terms he had used by excepting the delays we jihad experienced from the tardy movements of the British government at every stage in Tho Progress of the negotiation. Still he Felt himself justified in using at Tho present moment the language of the president in his message at the commencement of the session that Quot from the character of the Points still in difference and Tho undoubted disposition of both parties to bring the matter to an Early conclusion i look with entire Confidence to a prompt and satisfactory termination of the he had reason to believe that such were still the anticipations of the president in regard to the northeastern Boundary question. Or. B. Said that on the present occasion he should purposely refrain from the expression of any opinion in regard to the Case of the steam boat Caroline. This was rendered unnecessary by the fact that All the correspondence in relation to this subject of any general importance had already been Public lied and each senator had the same Means of forming an opinion which he himself enjoyed. There was no truth whatever in the Rumor now so current that Thero had been an angry correspondence Between the British minister and the Secretary of state since the Date of the last correspondence Between them now before the Public. There was no foundation for this Rumor. It was True that since that time a single note bearing upon Tho subject had been addressed by or. Fox to or. Forsyth Widich the latter had answered but this note and answer were of so Little importance that he air. A did not deem it necessary to Call for their publication Aud their tone was far from being of an angry character. Or Clay made a few Brief remarks understood in substance to be that in his position with the committee on foreign pm cations derived As it had been from the vice president it might not be amiss in Iii to sa3 a few words on the subject. The questions in immediate Dilt Pute Between the two countries were the northeastern Boundary the affair of the Caroline the cac of i Sleod and certain seizures on the coast of Africa. Tho most important was doubtless that relating to the northeastern Boundary. Reference had been made to an arbitration that was to Settle definitively the question and All the principles that should regulate the composition of the arbitration Imd been settled on except some minor Points of detail. With regard to the Caroline there had been some delay i i answer to the demand of our government whether her capture within our jurisdiction had been previously authorized or subsequently sanctioned. As to the Cas c of m Leod a Brood Deal depended on what Tho government of Neva it re should do in the matter. In his opinion there ought to have been some intimation by the executive to the proper authority in new York of the necessity of afford inst to the accused a fair and impartial trial and to his person if acquitted perfect Security. If this could not be obtained where he was lie Sli Ould be brought to a part of the country where Strong prejudice did not exist and where the safety of his person should be jut beyond All question. He thou Fht it probable Liat new York would take that course without suggestion from any Quarter. To hoped he might have a full fair and impartial trial such As it was the duty of the country to have guarantied to him. Vav Ith respect to the african captives he did not know what had taken place Between the two a Tover Mients but under no circumstances would this country subunit to the right of search. Or. C. Crave it As his decided opinion that the state of the difference Between the two countries was not such As to Rei Viire a special minister. The minister resident there would be Able to do All that would be necessary in the premises without Difini Cury and lie thou rat without delay. Or. Buchanan in an under tone i am sorry to her that. I expected to be your Secretary of legation or. Clay bowed. After All said or. A t have not yet begun to think of the possibility of any immediate War with great Britain that time has not arrived yet. But however Distant it May be i a Ould relax no Effort to plan Tho country in a proper st fete of left nce. He looked to the absence of All Means of floating defence steam batteries amp a. With Tho deepest concern. He thought Tho government should apply All its energies to place the country in such a state of defence As would prepare it to meet any possible exigency that might arise. Or. C. Expressed his belief that both governments desired peace that it was essential to the interests of each and that if War did come it would not be from the will of the governments but from collateral causes Over which they would have no control. The committee was then discharged according 1o the motion of or. Buchanan. From tie n of Yortis commercial. Six Jonys i Oju Europe.

We bring no news of great importance but the most interesting item is the debate in both houses of parliament on the Case of m Leod.

M Leod was not concerned in tiie affair of the Caroline the government Lead sent instructions to the minister at Washington but in the present state of the negotiation he declined producing tiie correspondence on the subject.
