MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 7,18C7.
A Tisit to Columbia;
Tho long rows of ruined houses, and tho un-,
nightly piles of chimneys that s ill cover a largo
portion of our once beautiful Capital, ore sad monu?
ments of rm invader's triumph. Although poaco
has smiled npou tho land for somo timo, yet tho
chango of circumstances and tho impoverished
state of the country render it impossible for tho
real estate owners to improve thoir property. In
addition to thia, tho city finances aro so embar?
rassed that it is impossiblo for the present to do
more than watch and wait.
Tho lamps in tho different storos gleam brightly
through the gloom, and are tho only rays that
cheer tho bonighted tra voller. All beyond thoso
favored localities is black as* Erebus, and un?
less tho topography of the place is understood,
there is no little danger attending a stroll at night.
Bv a recent act of the Legislature, the City Coun?
cil aro empowered to issue and put in circulation a
number of change bills, which will tend to relieve
?rasent embarrassments and form a nucleus fund
br future o orations and improvements.
While the Legislature is in session, Columbia is
certainly a gay place, and the galleries of tho
House and the fashionable promenades aro fre
" quented by the beauty and elito of tho city. To a
casual observer the chimney city would seem to
be especially favored in this respect, as tho fair
uex are the most prominent of its attractions, aud
it is probably owiug more to them than to any ex?
ternal influence that it acquired tho name of the
beautiful city. But although Columbia was thor?
oughly ^berman zed, it ?till retains nany of its
is being rapidly rebuilt, and for the most part in a
substantial and ornamental manner. Several
ranges of three story buildings havo been erected,
principally with flue iron fronts, the latter being of
Columbia manufacture, and from the foundry of
Mesara. GOLDSMITH & Co. BEDELL'S fine building
looms up at the corner of 'Pain and Main streets;
and its glistening appearance renders it an admi?
rable landmark for travellers and strangers. Higher
np the street, in the neighborhood of Cotton
'j own, tho improvements are scarce; but with tho
advance of time, the unsightly piles of rubbish
that now obstruct the streets will disaupear, and
the large warehouses be again rel/iilt. The Execu?
tive Office stands about midway in this street,
almost opposite to the ruins of the Court House,
and ?within easy access to all visitors. When Co
lambhvwas burnt the people went to work with a
Rill, and numbers of wooden shanties were has td ..
thrown up on Main, Plain, Assembly, and the other
business thoroughfares. These have been gradu?
ally replaced on Main street by brick structures,
aniline work of reconstruction will no doubt soon
extend to the other localities. Fortunately the
mechanics of Columbia were not addicted to the
use of mortar, but substituted the red clay, which
is so abundant in thia section. Although this did
not tend to moke the buildings stronger, and in
order to prevent the action of the weather, they
had to be finished on the outside with the genu?
ine mortar, vet it has saved an immense amount
of labor in rebuilding, as the mud-mortar is very
easily detached from the brick, and a house built
with burnt bricks can be finished in a compora
ti.-e y short time.
of Columbia were all burnt, but others have sprung
up or been improvised for the emergency. The
National Hotel, near the Sout.1. Carolina Railroad,
is a fine wooden building, admirably adapted for
the purposes of entertainment, and is kept by the
Los t. Mr. JOTKER, in a manner that recommends it
to all who have ever felt its genial influences.
NICKERBON, so long known as the able host of the
Mills House, has leased the Methodist Female
College, on Plein street, and has hung his ban?
ner on the outer walls. NICKERSON bae lost nono
cf his popularity by the move, and the College,
though not as attractive now as when the home of
young ladies, still offers inducements sufficient to
cause its rooms to be always filled. Besides these,
the Shiver House, on Plain street, between Main
and Assembly, and some two or three others, ore
ready to provide entertainment for tho travelling
THE NEW STATE HOUSE,
at the foot of Main street, is a grand monument of
.the past, for it will be many long years before the
Treasury of the State can aflora to appropriate
enough money to complete it in the style originally
intended. All the wrath of SHERMAN'S burners
vas inflicted on the unoffending pile. Not content
with, the destruction of the wooden State House,
the soldiers deliberately fired the sheds under
which were stored immense amounts of granite
and marble, most of which had been carved and
was ready for use. Some of tho marble pillars
were brought from Tennessee, and were of a beau?
tiful color-red, variegated with white. Polished
white marble Blabs for the flooring and the caps of
the pillars, which were elaborately carved, met
with the same fate, and are now but crumbling
masses of stone, hardly fit to macadamize the
streets. Although the finest and most expensive
portions of the work mot with this fa to, there is
?till much that can be ultimately used. The heavy
blocks of granite and some few of the stone pil?
lars escaped, but it would require an immense out?
lay to res toro that which was destroyed pr make
the remainder available. From tho plan of tho
architects, this State House, whon finished, would
be by far finer than tho capitol of any other State,
and was thought hy many would compare favora?
bly with that at Washington, .' ho front of the
budding is ornamented by the medallions of Me?
ll UFTTE and HAYNS, and the fluted pillars and their
ornamental caps give the building an imposing ap?
pearance even in its present unfinished state. It
was intended to be entirely fire-proof, and conse?
quently no wood was used in its construction-the
walls being of great thickness, and in placo of
rafters strong iron girders were used, which were
tb support a marble floor. ,
At the last session of thc Legislature $12.000
were appropriated to cover the building with a
tin roof, and if possible, to make somo of the
rooms available for public pm poses. This will
prevent any further action of the weather, and will
nt least preserve it until the State can afford to
advance funds sufficient for its completion.
THE PALMETTO TREE,
in the rear of the building is an ingenious monu?
ment, and reflecte great credit upon that descend?
ant of TUBAL CAIN, whose quondam sign is still to
be seen in Cumberland street. None but Mr.
WERNER could have fashioned snch a striking re?
semblance to the palmetto from iron, and tho
State paid a worthy tribute to his powers when
she purchased it as an ornament to tho Capitol
grounds. Tho base of the tree, which is a square
pedestal, was inscribed with the names of officers
and men, who, as members of the Palmetto Regi?
ment, fell fighting for their country. But not even
this, a national monument, could escape the spirit
of vandalism ; the raised letters were in many cases
broken of *nd one side of tho square completely
removed, i jrtunately the tree was untouched,
and still rears its proud head aloft,. a glorious
emblem of a once glorious State, teaching us that
although now. downtrodden, we yet may rise, and,
like our own palmetto, survive the ruins of our
occupies an entire square, but being composed
mostly of detached buddings, it can boast of no
architectural beauty. In common with most puB
lio buildings, it Buffered greajj^Ldaring the war,
being used by the Confederate Government os a
hospital, and subsequently as barracks for the
United States troops. The Campus is a large plat
of ground covering several' acres, and in Bummer
presents a beautiful appearance, but the leafless
trees and dilapidated' houses that are now to be
seen make-it Jpok rather desolate. On either side
are the houses of the professors, which aie well
built, and being mostly ivy clad, relieve the gloomy
air of the premises in a measure.
As the Alma Mater of the State, tho South Caro?
lina College has always been a cherished institu?
tion, and her graduates have risen to the highest
esition in the land. - The change from a College
a University was actuated by the same foster?
ing care as ii was hoped the transformation would
Tender it more attractive and cause it to regain
ijcme of its former glories. The experiment, for
as yet it is hardly more, promises to he a success,
and the veneration and respect with which this
institution of learning is regarded by all will be
incrcaaod with its improved facilities. At present
the, Faculty consists of eleven professors, who
have charge of the various branches; the addition
of Law, Medicine and Theology not being yet com
During the last session of the Legislature tho
House occupied, the old Chapel and the Library
Hall, but it is expected that the new Chapel will
he arranged for their temporary uso while the
State House romains uncompleted. Although the
n um ber of students is now small, they aro con?
stantly increasing, and the day is not far diataut
when the University will be again the people's
pride. . _
"so-called," or rather its prospective foundation,
can be seen on the banks of the Saluda River,
about one mile and a half from the city. Those
who had the matter in charge certainly were gov?
erned at least by the picturesque in their choice of
a location, for the river at this point brawls finely
over a bea of stone, making the air musical with
the sound of many waters, and effectually pre?
venting either ingress or egress by the rocky bar
, rj rier that nature has reared. Tho Penitentiary
proper is yet in embryo, and those who expect tb
seo the cells finished in one months time will be
sorely disappointed. At present, all that is to be
seen is about a few thousand burnt brick and a
small excavation; but as they havo commenced
operations, we may hope for something iu tho fu?
ture, however far off that may be.
The bank of the river at this point is composed
of an under strata of granite, and the workmen
are busy excavating this and piling tho superin?
cumbent earth upon the river bank to form a
levee, which will prevent any future overflow. Thc
granite removed will be used in tho constrncti-n
cf the Penitentiary, and will save tho labor of
bringing it from the State quarry at Granby, some
three miles distant. Between the Penitentiary
wad the river runs the Saluda Canal-this has
bera neglected for some time, but a small outlav
weald restore it to its farmer usefulness. Few
canals havo the flow of water enjovod by thia and
it3 sides are carefully guarded from overflow or de?
si vy by strong stone banks. It was offered for sale
by the State, but no bids being made it ia still
Near the Penitentiary are the remains of tho
Powder Works, scarcely inferior to those in
Augusta. These wero all destroyed by SHERMAN'S
orders, bnt the massive stone walls ?till remain
and some of the buildings have been repaired to
to used as ejtore houses. At the last session of
the Legislature; $45,000 was appropriated towards
building and perfecting the Penitentiary; but it ?H
doubtful if it can be made available for a year or
two yet. By a walk further up the river, at a de?
tour td the right may be seen tho
These aro situated a short distance from Arsenal
Hill, and, strange to say, the water is not taken
from the neighboring river, but from numerous
spnng8 that bubble up through the earth. These
springs are widely scattered, but iron tubes lead?
ing from each conduct the water to the works,
where. rt is pumped into a huge reservoir, from
which the city is supplied. This reservoir is situ?
ated on the top of a mil, and hoing of great capaci?
ty, is able to supply water both for public antfpri
yate use. The clayey soil of Colombia rendors
the water in theso springs peculiarly sweet, and.
os it is pumped from the fountain head, noth
~ng can be moro palatable. At prosent, owing to
tho want of fbiaucos, many of the hydrants aro out
of repair, and tho water-works of tbo city aro com?
paratively useless ; bnt thc private houses appreci?
ate tho benefit derived from this BOurce, and usc it

Thia contains about f> or 8 acres, aud is at pres?
ent almost in i-ata'o of nature. Tho undulating
character of Die ground renders it admirably
adapted for the purposes intended. It is now
diversified with a few scraggy trees and a few de?
funct fountains; but still amid its desolation and
min presents attractions sufficient to inako it thc
rendezvous for lovers, and many hearts havo boon
lost and won within ita grounds. A'woodon fence
encircles it, aud bevoud that is a fine carnage
drivo. which is, or rather wns, extensively patron?
ized by gav equestriennes, carriages and fast mon
and bones. \Vh n SHERMAN took possession of
tho citv ho impressed everything eatablo in
the a'ock lino that ho could lind and turned
his half-starved cattle iuto this park to feed
tho famished and homeless citizens. His phil?
anthropic measures wcro eminently successful, for
tho cattle ato tho bark from tho troes and were en?
tirely too poor themselves for any one to oat. The
Park" ia now but a Bhadow of itself, and though
cattio aro now excluded, it will be long oro :t re-,
sumes its pristine splendor.
THE LUNATIO ASYLUM
is a noblo charity, for at present it is almost solely
a charity, tho few pay patients being BO much im?
poverished that their friends cannot continue their
maintenance. This institution was fortunately
spared from the Hames that devastated Columbia,
and afforded refuge lo many o' the houseless and
homeloss, whom the droadfr milagration sent
into thc street5!. Dr. J. W. PAUPER, the able and
efficient superintendent, has hold thc same position
for mmy years, and has succeeded in securing the
affection of his patients to such au extent that
they almost look upon him as a father. There are
fow'institntious in the United States that aro bet?
tor managed, or whoso annual reports can BIIOW
better arraur. ementa for tho entertainment, in?
struction or health of thoir inmates than the ono
undor tho superintendence of Dr. PARKER. It is
to hint alone that the credit is duo of saving the
Asylum, which would, but for hi? dignified inter?
position, havo fallen a prey to the torches of SHER?
MAN'S grand army. From amon? tho number of
patients admitted, manv have boen discharged
cured, while the remainder seem perfectly attach?
ed to their new sphere of lifo, and manifest no dis?
position to change their abode.
Among the principal points of attraction now
loft in tho city are tho
PRIVATE RESIDENCES, ?C.
From the peculiar manner in which Columbia is
built, many families were enabled to secure largo
lots for their residences. These have, in almost
overv instance, been converted into fine gardons,
which, for artistic beauty, cannot be excelled.
Tho most prominent of theso is that of General
JOHN PRESTON. T??B occupies a wholo square,
and ia enclosod on ali sides but the front with a
high brick wall. On the premises are fine hot?
houses, which formerly contained many rare
exotics, but, in common with tho remainder of the
garden, have now been destroyed and neglected.
The absonce of tho family from the State hua pre?
vented that care being taken which is absolutely
necessary to preserve a garden, and the premises
are now fast growing up into a wilderness. Other
proprietors have bestowed equal caro upon their
grounds, and a drive around the city shows on
every side, in thj neat and Bhowy houses and well
kept gardens, the best evidence that Columbia is
not despondent, but is only gathering breath for a
progressive leap, that will soon restore her to her
Columbia ia the centre of several railroads, all of
which bring traffic to her market, and although
her facilities are Bomewhat cramped at present,
vet there is no danger, that she win be left behind
in the march of time. The Columbia and Augusta
Railroad, which is now in course of construction,
it is anticipated will do much for the city, and will
add to ita resources in tho future. Other projects
aro also entertained which are to shore the benefi?
cial result of bringing increased trade and activity
to the city, and thus afford the means of rebuild?
ing her ruined streets. This ii no Bip Van Winkleish
age. and Columbia is well aware that she must ex?
ert herself in order to prosper. Her merchants are
energetic thorough busirosa men, and with her fu?
ture in their bands, our Capital will soon be re?
juvenated, and become once more the pride and
boast of the people.

LETTER NUMBER XXVI.
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, 18G6.-Brussels is tho Capi?
tal of Belgium, and is itt the centre of the most
highly cultivated country in Europe. It has a
thriving population of 180,000. Brussels is one of
tho finest cities on the Continent; the houses arc
substantially built of stone; the broad, clean
streets in tho upper part of the city are magnifi?
cent. The grand Park is the admiration of every
traveller-it is laid out into a kind of public gar?
den, intersected by beautiful walks, bordered with
trees, and ornamented with handsome atarnos of
white marble, and filled with numerous fountains,
which aro quite refreshing of a hot summer day.
Brussels is celebrated for its world-ronowned car?
pets, and manufactures of tapestry and lace.
Several thousand female operatives are omplojed
in the manufacture of lace-the most of thia deli?
cate work is done by the needle, which is very fry?
ing to tho oyes. In a public square is tho old
Spanish palaces, with gorgeous tropical adorn?
ments and gobelin tapestry. Those palaces wore
occupied by the Spanish Governors, when Belgium
was under Spanish rule. The museum in tho halls
of the palace contains some uno pictures, statues,
etc. The Museum of Natural Histor}' ia quito
interesting and very complete.
An hour's ride in on open carriage from Brus?
sels, and I lind myself at Waterloo, celebrated as
the scene of the great battle of 18th June, 1815,
which completed the downfall of Napoleon. An
unconfrolablo ambition took possession of ?apo
I loon in his youthful military career. It would
seom he had won for himself and his empire a
nomo and reputation that would have satisfied au
Alexander or a Ciesar, but not so. Joseph-no-v/ho
had ever been bia guardian angel, and to whi m it
ia said ho was devotedly attached-failed to fur?
nish him with an heir for his mighty empire. In
an evil hour Napoleon permitted ambition to over?
ride love, humanity and justice. The true and
faithful Josephine waa abandoned, and Napoleon
demanded in marriage the hand of Maria Louisa,
a young Austrian girl not out of hor teenB, who
waa the daughter of Emperor Francia, of Austria.
Thia unwarrantable conduct of Napoleon found no
favor, not even in the oyes of tho French nation;
they felt that tho warm-hearted Josephine was
cruelly wronged by one who had sworn to bo her
protector, and that tho French had gained nothing
by the alliance with tho proud race of Hapsburg.
From tho date of Napoleon's desertion of Jos?ph?
ine, Fate turned against him. New that ho was
allied by marriage with the strong power
of Austria, his ambition know no bounds.
He decided to make war upon the pow?
erful empire of Russia.
In the summer of 1812, Napoleon placod himself
at the head of the fineat army ever raised in Franco.
Nearly half a million of mon marched out of thc
?nanny ?vine-clad hills of France, destined for the
City of Moscow. Many of bia wiaeat military coun?
sellors warned him against an attempt to invade
the ancient Capital of Russia in the winter months.
"Peace," ho exclaimed, "awaiti us bon oat h the
walls ot Moscow." Fatal delusion I Thia immense
army waa to be marched twenty-five hundvcd milos,
one thousand of which was through thc barron
plains of Kusaia. Thia sandy desert furnishes food
for neither man nor beast. In tho month of Sep?
tember a terrible battle was fought. The French
fained a partial victory at tho cost of 32,000 men.
he Russians lost 50,000. The Bussions retirod in
food ordor, pursued by the victorious and confi?
ent French. The Buss?an commander decided not
to hazard his army in tho defence of Moscow. He
well knew tho French were advancing to their omi
destruction, aa thc rigors of a Russian winter waa
near at hand, and the impossibility of tho enemv
subsisting snob an army in the heart of a hostile
country. Moscow was at that timo ono of the
richest and largest cities in Europe, being twenty
mile? in circumference. It was in the autumn of
1819 that Napoleon onterod the ancient City of tho
Czars. "MoscowI Moscow!" shouted the oxcitod
and:exultant soldiers. They vainly thought their
'sufferings were at un end, as they quartorod
thcm8olvca in tho gorgeous palaces, splendidly
furnished with everything requisite to mako a
weary soldier comfortable. Napoleon and etaff
established themselves in tho palace of the Krem?
lin, which was the imperial soat of tho ancient
Russian Monarchs. When tho Emperor discovered
that the inhabitants had deserted their homos, ho
had forebodings of evil. Soldiers wore stationod in
ah portions of tho city to guard against fire or
sudden surprise. Tho Emperor Alexandor had
turned loose 15,000 desperadoes from tho prisons,
who wcro stealthily preparing to convert the splen?
did metropolis into an . infernal machine, for tho
deafruction of tho invading arm v. Immense maga?
zines of powder, Bhells, and 'other destructivo
onginea of war, were placed under tho palace
occupied by Napoleon, and scattered beneath tho
houses which were crowded with the French sol?
diers. The water pipea were cut, fountains and
fire enginea destroyed; nothing was left undone to
render tho destruction of the city complete; even
tho elements came to the aid of tho demons in
their work of desolation, for about night an equi?
noctial gale swept over "tho city. A protracted
drought had prepared tho wooden houses for the
j torch. At midnight Napoleon threw himself, ex?
hausted, on his bed, but he waB ill at ease; his
conscience wus torturing him; ho had deeply
wronged tho bosom companion of his youth; tho
cry of "fire" resounded through the streets, the
Heavens were illuminated by the volumes of
llames, aa they burst forth in various sections uf
Tremendous explosions of abolis and magazines
of powder ahook tho doomed city like an earth?
quake. The Imperial Guard of 20,000 men were
ordered out. Theso bravo soldiors, who wcro
never known to falter, could not stand before tho
terrible fiery foe. Tho French soldiers shot, bay?
oneted, and throw the incendiaries into tho burn?
ing lake of fire, but it (fid not atop thom in their
work of desolation. Thonsands of nu n, women
and children wore buried beneath tho falling
houses aud timbers that had been hurled iuto the
air. Napoleon found tho palace in which he was j
quartered surrounded by llames, ?md carno near
hoing swallowed in tho roaring soa of lire. Such
an event would have saved him vears of pain and
anguish. Perhaps bis life was" spared, that ho
might have time to repent in sorrow of his cruel
treatment of Josephine. The fire kindled by tho
llends ia all portions of the citv, waa swept for
three days by a terrible galo, untif Moscow, twenty
miles in circumference, was reduced to a heap <>f
ruins. The burning of Moscow saved the Russian
Lmpirc, and banished Napoleon to the Island of
oK?urm? **U8H>an campaign the French lost
350,000 bravo soldiers. Ncarlv one-half perished
from cold, hunger and fatigue'in their disastrous
retreat aftor tho destruction of Moscow. The loss
of tho Russians, including those who perished for
the want of food and shelter, was greater than
that of thc French. Seven hundred thousand lives
sacrificed in a 8ix months'campaign ! and thia to
gratify the ambition of ono man. Such is war!
It involves in ita mad career every conceivable
crime, poisoning tho minds and morale of a nation,
reducing thc people to want, sorrow and misery.
And yet there aro MiniBtcra of tho Gospel who do
fond tho shedding of a brother's blood, and ap?
peals to the Bible to sustain thom in their argu?
ments. In my humblo opinion, war?is tho work of
tho dovil; God mavponnit it,, but he does not
justify it. When CAIN mado war upon ABEL, God
said unto him: "And now art thou cursed from tho
earth which hath oponed her mouth to receive thy
brother's blood from thy hand. When thou tillest
tho ground it shall not henceforth yield unto theo
her strongth; a fugitivo and a vagabond shalt thou
be on tho earth.' God showed his displeasure by
cursing thc grotmd CAIN was to till, and making
him n fugitivo and a vagabond. G. W. W.

How few there aro who are not subject to some affection
of tho lungs or respiratory organs, who, by neglecting
premonitory symptoms, aggravate tho complaint, until
disease strikes its shafts, cauoing Inexpressible torture
of the patient; and anxiety and distross to friends. "Only
a cold I" "A slight soi? throat 1" is the heedless remark
of many when so affected. Toa ; "Only a cold," wes the
thoughtless expression of thousands whom Death hae
marked for his prey.
Forewarned-Forearmod I should be tho motto forever
in the minds of all subject to Coughs, Colds, Catarrh, ot
