To see large parties of well dress
ed ladies and gentlemen going up to
the Capitol, visiting the Senate and
House, calling on the Governor,
chatting with the heads of departs
ments, and iking merry all about
the dismal building, is a sight so
lew and novel as to invite attention.
In all my experience in the South
Carolina Capitol, which has been
e)nsiderable in the past eight years,
I have never seen a lady within the
walls of that building until this
week! This shows with wiLt ab
horrenco the whole thing was re
garded by the white people. They
had as niuch aversion to their I
Capitol at, to at small pox hospital.
how changed! Yesterday and to
day 1 have sull two or three hunI
dred ladies visiting the Capitol.
Seats have been provided for theii
a1s lllih as possible o11 the floor of
the two Houses, and the sight of so
much style and beauty among them
makes the old time colored legislas
tor open ehis dull eyes in atstunislh,
The House of Representatives is a
different looking concern from what.
it was when last I arw it. Form erly
the )emuocrats had only from
twenty-five to thirty mnitbers, ia
little body of whites shelved off in
the southeast corner and surronnd
ed in front by eighty or ninety
voritable looking black Republicans.
They were powerless to do anything
but argue with the black mass
around them, for thiir votes made
but. a small showing p011 the white
side of the book. Wallace, the
present Speaker, was then a mem.
ber, a.fine looking man from the up
country, but utterly unablo in former
days to see a way out. He used to
tell me that he could not conceive
from what direction the salvation of
South Carolina was to coie, but
only knew that the then state of
affairs could not in the natre of
things forever continuo. Now the
entire right side of the Chamber is
occupied by as fine looking a body of
white1 men as you will se in any
legislative assembly. What a
change from the motley crowd of a
few years ago--:- change for the
better inl apllpearanlce and conldnct.
The old black L4 gislatuiro w s a
noisy and Zrbulent body, smoking,
drinking, dancing, laughing, and
(utting up all sorts of umlnanlnerly
capers in the truly joyful African
style. The Speaker had about as
mucnh control over them as a her of
Kentucky mules. Elliott was the
onliy black Speaker who could hold
thiem withiin the bounds of anything
like deceney ; thme others, like Lee,
who is aL small nmnli with nlot muuch
phiysical or intellectual force, could
do nothing buiit rap atnd yell, drown
ing~ other nloiHss with the vomoof
that of their OwnI making.
But no0w the body is So) well be0
havedi as to strike the observer thle
tist mnoment 110 en1ters. Upon thle
right, as5 I hiave stiated, every seat
(save two or three) is occupied b~y
whiite men01. Uponl tile left half thoe
seats are valcanlt, and tihe others~ aro
occup1ied b~y abi out thirty coal black
negroes. What a contrast it
mkes!I Step to thle front, and look
first to~thie Demrocratic and1( then to
the Republican side. T1hie contrast is
overpowering, and1( you insiitantly ask
yourself, Caln thlis continue ? Shall
we ever. see again even as mlany
black legislators here as we see
now ? T his question is answered by
a close investigation of the feelings
of the whites. Behind alil thleir pro -
fossions iln favor of equal rights,
thley are bitterly hostile to the negro
as a legislator, and they w~ill take
him down from thaitt pocsition.

"late unplensantness." It is a
wrought iron rifled cannon, tihe first
forged in the Southern States. hav.
ing beein mado by Mr. Archibald
Cameron in 18G1. It was bought
and presented, as the inscription on
the gun will shiow, to the Stato of
South Carolina by Plowden C. J.
Weston. The gun was eflootively
used by Col. Edward Maniganlt on
the WVaccamaw, in the protection of
