We have received copies of Northern papers of the evening of Saturday, the 4th instant. Gold, 199 1-2. Lincoln's inauguration — his inaugural address. The inauguration of Abraham Lincoln, for a second term, took place in Washington city on Saturday last. The following telegrams from Washington are the only accounts we find of the ceremony: Washington, March 4.--The procession to escort the President to the capitol is now forming, though a heavy rain is falling and the streets are almost impassable with mud. The avenue is one dense body of people. The inaugural ceremonies will take place in the Senate Chamber. Washington, March 4--12.30. --The rain has ceased and the procession is now passing down the avenue. The display is exceeding grand. The sidewalks are jammed with people, and every window and house-top is occupied with ladies and gentlemen, who are waving their handkerchiefs and hats with great enthusiasm. The visiting Philadelphia Fire Departm
The Davenport Brothers in Liverpool — an exciting scene — destruction of their Cabinet. The Davenport Brothers were mobbed at Liverpool, England, on the 15th ultimo. The Post of that city says: "The audience elected Mr. Cummins and Mr. Hulley as the committee to tie the brothers. The Davenports objected at first, but ultimately agreed. Ira Davenport, who wriggled and twisted a good deal during the operation, and at its conclusion turned round suddenly to Dr. Ferguson. Mr. Cummins shrugged his shoulders and walked away, while Dr. Ferguson immediately stepped up, and instantaneously Ira Davenport stood free. He at once created a large sensation by exposing the back of his hand to the audience, with blood flowing from it. The excitement at this point was extreme, and although it was hardly explicable how a rope could produce a wound from which the blood would thus copiously flow, the tables for the moment seemed to be turned upon the gentlemen whose brutality had been so

Said negro is about twenty-four years old, five feet ten or eleven inches high, black complexion, and weighs one hundred and ninety-two pounds. He was bought on the 3d of February from Dr. R. H.

ncoln had himself signed the order for breaking the blockade at Mobile, and that, too, while the American Ambassador was complaining of British subjects doing so. He moved for the papers. Mr. Laird said there were no papers to produce. The Index says that seven hundred and fifteen American ships have been transferred to the British registry since the commencement of the war. Demonstrations in support of the Freedmen's Aid Society took place at Exeter Hall, in London, on the 15th instant. Sir Thomas Farwell Buxton presided.

The Army and Navy Gazette says the estimates have been framed so as to reduce the strength of the army by about three thousand men. France. The weekly returns of the Bank of France show an increase of over fifteen millions of francs in cash. A treaty
nts almost to a monomania. So long as that idea stands on its pedestal the war must rage on, and it can see no symptoms of its early overthrow. The Army and Navy Gazette thinks the meeting marks a new phase in the bloody conflict. It makes the boundary line between the belligerents broader and deeper, and renders peace, it fears, impossible till one party or the other have won by the sword the fight. Parliamentary proceedings continue unimportant. In the House of Commons, on the 17th, Mr. Layard, in response to Mr. Watkin, bore testimony to the zeal, tact, discretion and ability with which Lord Lyons had discharged his duties at Washington. In no one of many thousand cases had he failed to obtain the highest approval of the Government, and his duties had been so laborious that in one year his dispatches filled sixty folio volumes. Under such circumstances it was not surprising that his health had broken down, and for the present the Government forebore to press him to d
Latest from Europe. The steamship Canada, with dates from Liverpool to the 19th ultimo, has arrived at Halifax. The Peace Conference between Lincoln and Seward and the Confederate Commissioners, Stephens, Hunter and Campbell, continued to be the leading theme of discussion and conversation. The failure to agree on any terms of peace was generally credited, but some doubt existed in regard to it. The steamer City of Limerick sailed from Liverpool for New York about the same time as the Canada. The London Gazette announces the appointment of W. Frazier Smith as British Consul at the port of Savannah. Great Britain. In the absence of later news from America than to the 4th of February, per the steamship Hibernian, the English journals continue their speculations on the recent Peace Conference held at Fortress Monroe between President Lincoln and Mr. Seward on the part of the North, and the Confederate Commissioners, Messrs. Stephens, Hunter and Campbell, on
he Bahamas since the commencement of the war. The steamers Fox (since captured) and Druid returned to Nassau from Charleston on the 6th and 9th ultimas, and these were the last arrivals in the colony from the Confederacy. When the fall of Fort Fisher was announced, quite a fleet of blockade-runners started from Nassau for Charleston; but they soon returned, one by one, from profitless voyages. General Preston left Nassau for Charleston, but after a few days he was again at his quarters in the Royal Hotel. The colonial authorities refused permission to the captain of the United States gunboat Honduras to anchor in port during the heavy swell at sea. The Expedition against Mobile. A telegram from New Orleans, dated the 23d ultimo, says: It is reported that General Canby will leave here for Mobile to-day. He is master of the situation, and good reports may be soon expected from his forces and the fleet there under Commodore Palmer, which is hard at work.
Treasury and Interior Departments. Senator Harlan is believed to be the one agreed upon to take the Interior Department portfolio, and there is not a shadow of doubt about the appointment of Mr. McCulloch to the Treasury. The same authority places Hannibal Hamlin on the slate for Minister to Rome, with full sanction of the President to kiss the Pope's toe and obtain absolution for all his sins. The campaign in North Carolina. A dispatch from Newbern, North Carolina, dated the 25th ultimo, says: Rebel deserters, who have just come in, report that General Lee has ordered Goldsboro' and Kinston to be fortified, which order is now being carried into effect.

A visit to Fort Sumter. "Carleton" writes to the Boston Journal as follows: "After a ramble of several hours through the city of Charleston, we made a visit to Sumter, entering by the sally-port where Major Anderson entered on that ever-to-be-remembered January night of 1861. The fort bears little resemblance to its appearance then, externally or internally. No portion of the original face of the wall is to be seen, except on the side towards Charleston and a portion of that facing Moultrie. From the harbor and from Wagner it appears only a tumult--the debris of an old ruin. "All the casemates, arches, pillars and parapets are torn up, rent asunder and utterly demolished. The great guns which two years ago kept the monitors at bay, which flamed and thundered awhile upon Wagner, are dismounted, broken, overturned, and lie buried beneath the mountain of brick, dust, concrete, sand and mortar. After Dupont's attack in April, 1863, a reinforcement of palmer to logs w
