Hit O hjrctien* to the Cap of L,br'l7w~
Criw(*ril,? Statue en the Dome ?i the
Cnpitol at Washlngten.
[Corrcsroi dence N. Y. Eventng Post]
W aphinotoh, May i7.-Ad Interesting cor
reBpcnJei.ce la relerence to the statne of Liber
ty on toe dome of th? Oapltol, has just come to
licht here, through the instrumentality of Mr.
Jiice, chairman of the committer on Public
Buildings and Land*. Mr. R. and other mem
tar; ol the committee were dissatisfied with the
heliuet which crowned the statne, and a letter
woe. addressed to Mr. Walter, the architect of
ibe oapltol extension, asking hiro if M J*6?
possible to displace the helmet jetnrn
Mr. Crawford's original design. Mr. waiter
ie opposed to any attempt at i m pro v e?e".t
that the statue is fixed In'"P1??? 1
Crawford is dead. He subniit-? a co"e?P??
**Dce between Capt. Meigs and Mr^Crawford
and Jefferson Davis, which is extremely ln
tenrtag There are letters, however, which
do not appear In this correspondence, and
which undoubtedly have been lost In those
letters Mr Davis objected to the Liberty cap
as a part of the crest of the statne. In lure,
1M5, Mr. Crawford remitted his first design.
H? says: ?? I have endeavored to represent
Freedom triumphant in peace and war; the
wrea'h on her head has a double signification
and allusion to this?one-half of it being com
posed of wheat sprigs, the other half of laurel,
la October of the same year Mr. Crawford
. modified his first design, after haviug seen Mr.
Walter's plans for the architecture of the
Capitol. In Mr. Crawford's letter to Captain
Hel?s during this month occurs the subjoined
singular passage: _
??It is quite poesible that Mr. Jefferson Davis
may, as upon a former occasion, object to the
eap of liberty aud the faces. I can only say
n reply that the work is for the people, and
they must be addressed in language they un
derstand, and which has become unalterable
for the masses.
?? The emblems I allude to can never be re
placed by any invention ol the artist; all that
?an be done is to add te them, as I have done,
by placing the circlet of stars aronnd the cap
of liberty; It tbus becomes mare picttfltesqne.
and nothing of its generally understood sign itt
cance Is lost. I might, did time permit, to enter
apon a lengthy argument to show how sculp
ture Is limited in the useof accessories, and that
those only of the simplest and most intelligible
character can be admitted, particularly in
works destined for the instruction and grati
fication of the public. All arguments, how
ever, must reduce themselves into the ques
tion : ??Will the people understand it?" I,
therefore, hope the Secretary will allow the
emblems to 'pass muster.' "
??1 have said the statue represents 'armed
Liberty.' She rests upon the shield of our
country, the triumph of which is made appa
rent by the wreath held in the same band
which grasps the shield: in her right hand she
holds the sheathed sword, to show the fight is
over for the present, but ready for use when
ever required. The stars upon her brow indi
cate her heavenly origin: her position upon the
globe represent her protection of the American
world, the justice of whose cause is made ap
parent by the emblems supporting It."
I subjoin Jefferson Davis' letter to Captain
Heigs entire:
?? Was Dkpartmskt, >
" Washington, January 15, l->56. >
?? Sir : Tne second photograph of the statute
With which it is proposed to crown the dome
of the Capitol impresses me mo6t favorably.
Its general grace and power, striking at first
view, has grown cn me as I studied its details.
?? As to the cap, 1 can only say, without in
trading to press the objection formerly made,
that it seems to me that its history renders it
lrappropriate to a people who were born free,
and would not be enslaved.
?? The language of art, like all living tongues,
m subject to change; thus the bundle of rods,
If no longer employed to suggest the functions
of the Roman lictor, may lose the symbolic
character derived therefrom, and be confined
to the rough signification drawn from its other
source, the fable teaching the instructive les
iob that in union there is strength. But the
liberty cap has an established origin in its use
as a badge of the freed slave, and though it
should have another emblematic meaning to
day, a recurrence to that origin may give to It
In the future the same popular acceptation
which it bad in the past.
??Why should not armed liberty wear a hel
met? Her conflict being over, her cause tri
umphant, as shown by the other emblems of
the statue, the vizer would be up sj as to per
mit, as in the ph tograph, the dUplav of a
circle of stars?expressive of endless existence
and of heav.nly birth.
??With these remarks I leave the matter to
the judgment of Mr. Crawford; &ud I need
haraly say to you. who know my very high
appreciation of him, that I certainly would not
venture, on a question of art, tj array my
?pinions aeainst bis.
"Very r? spectfully, your obedient servant,
?? jufvibsoh Davis, Secretary of War."
Vnder date of March 19, 1950, Mr. Crawford
Writes:
?? I read with much pleasure the letter of the
honorable Secre'arv, and his remarks have in
duced me to dispense with 'he 'cup'and put in its
ptace a helmet, the crest of which is composed
of an eagle's head and a bold arrangement of
feathers, suggested by the costume of our In
dian tribes "
The dissatisfaction with this Jeff. Davie hel
met and crest of feathers is almost universal
here, and it is believed that in the course of a
Jew years Congress will return the "liberty
cap"' In the original design of Mr. Crawford.

Testimonials*
Wabhiwotow, D. O., Ma rch 5,18M.
Dr. Lighthill?Dear Sir I tate this oppor
tunity to publicly express my gratitude for the
wonderful cure of deafness you have in so
short a time effected in my case.
1 was deaf for about six years, and for the
last lew years so much so that 1 could not
bear preaching or common conversation; but
now since your invaluable services bave been
rendered, I can hear as well as ever.
In conclusion, let me say that the noises
with which I have been troubled in my head
for years, have also disappeared.
Very truly yours,
Jakes R. McOathbah,
10th street^ between E and F.
Washington, D. O., March 4, 1864.
This is to certify, that having been deal since
the year 185S, and since that time gradually
losing my hearing until 1 was unable to hear
common conversation or public speaking, I
applied to Dr. LOghthill, of New York, who,
alter a short and painless course of treat,
ment, entirely restored my hearing. I hearti
ly recommend Dr. Lighthni to the deaf.
Fbxdxbick Rodbbtsoit,
Residence near Fort Saratoga. i
Wabhingtob, D. C., March 2,1961.
This is to certiff that having been affected
for twenty years with deafness, and having
tried Borne of the most eminent doctors of our
city without any relief, I at last heard of Dr
Lighthill and put myself under his care. His
treatment was brief, and successful. I am
now completely restored, and the cure is ap
parently permanent. I have all confidence In
Dr. Ldghtbill's skill, and would advise all af
flicted with deafness to go and consult him at
once. ' Josbph Whitnby,
Residence near P and 11th streets.
Remarkable Care ef Deafness.
From the Rev. Joseph M. Clarke, Rector of St
James' Church.
Syracuse, February 20,1861.
I have been deaf in one ear, ever since I was
in college, some twenty years ago. By the
skill of Dr. Lighthill, its hearing was entirely
restored, so that now 1 hear alike with both
ears, and I find that I can use my voice with
much more ease and comfort than before.
