The State's Capitol.
It is One of toe Most Historic
Buildings in tbe South.
The Original Building and the Neic
of To day-Historic Relics Care?
fully Preserved.
In this day of various societies, inss
culine and feminise, for unearthing
and perpetuating the chivalric incidents
of the Colonia] and Revolutionary periods
of American history we are continually
on the lookout for some bidden find of
fact or fancy, and when so discovered
we reverently blow the dust away, rub j
the old piece of silver, smooth out the
cram pied sheet, decipher the fading
ink-all, DO doubt, in very bad Eng?
lish-and partioii'eally dispatch these
heroic emblems to our favorite stoic
room of national preserves.
T| In a recent visit to South Carolina I
"^.was told to be sure and visit tbe State j
House I did so and found it the most
imposing building and the most inter?
esting archive of history ie that pictur?
esque and noted town, Colombia. The
State House of every State is always a
centre of interest, but tbe Sate House
of South Carolina, like the State House
of Boston, strikes one as the great
heart of the people, and, like all peo?
ple, it bears-its scars' and bides its skel?
eton. The State Haoes of South Caro
lina may almost be called a national ,
cornerstone, for indissolubly connected
with it are the names of Lord William \
Campbell, Rutledge and'Moultrie. In 1
the early days of the colony the seat of \
of government was at Charleston, j
Lord Campbell tried to remove it to j
Beanfort, for some British policy, but ,
the plan failed. When the colony be- .
came a State it was considered neces- ?
. sary to secure a more central capitol, j
and for safety, one.farther from the
coast. This was tn 1790, and the spot c
selected was that on which Columbia t g
now stands' Someone bas said that j
Columbia, like Washington, was a cap?- j t
tal city from her birth. * j c
In the State House there now bangs -
a photograph taken from a.n old print j j
of the original State House It is a j
quaint wooden structure and seems to t
stand alone amid its primitive surround- t
iags. In a recent open letter written j
by one of Carolina's most charming t
women? who has made th? study of ber n
; State a pleasure, she tells us that maoy t
. were the aarship3 of the legislators in c
the old days: "No accommodations f(
for man or beast, or next'fo none, were g
to be found ic Columbia proper. Her ?
ons tavern held but (hs Governor and a
fels suite, if they were not" entertained t]
_ by the neighboring planters. The ma- t?
jortty of thejawmakers were ?odged at Q
Granby and compelled by the scarcity ??
of horses, they frequently walked to v
their legislative duties. Their patriotic "
enthusiasm never Sagged, thought most c
of them were accustomed to ease and .<
luxury when at borne. How would our *
present legislators stand a return to '
such ultra JeSersonioo simplicity?"
Ia the early part of this century tbe
ot ig in al Sl ate House waa replaced by a
larger and handsomer building, also of ^
wood, but she adds : **Irs wails beard
tbe eloquence of Hayce. Legare, Pres ?
ton and other gifted orators, who in tbe
20's and 30*s added lusture to the al- ^
ready brilliant repn'a?ion enjoyed by tj
tbe State." b
A still more worthy memorial was de- fi
sired, and in 1853 ?be South Carolina
L?gtslature passed a bill to construct a j{
Capitol which should compare favor- q
ably with any other building of the ^
kind in tbe States. Tbe first floor of
this building was nearly completed a
when the foundations gave way and the ^
work was net re.-urned until 1857. when y
the site wac placed a little west of rbi- j
old one This i* the foundation A the
present State House, and tbe ?Y..?!; ?I
building has been carried cu at au
enormous cost and prosecuted ia facs ?f
difficulties that might daunt a less pa- j }
triotic spirit J IQ 1861 two million do! ?
'lars had already been expended, and j
a few years ago three hundred thousand ?
more were used io handsome interior ;
decoration and for repairing the effects j
of abuse during the days of recons?ruc- . s
tion. Tee building is now complete s
except the dome and two portico^, j v
which are to be placed at the back and j v
front " The original designs call for a j i;
, flight of ?asrble steps to ezch of these j I
portico**, and wb?j completed will pro t
lie: one hundred s:.-d ?f/y feet frota the 5
mai:; building Toe beautiful columns : a
ir, er.dei for the porticos aod the statu- j I
es of Agriculture and Commerce and 1
th? ba? reliefs lay io the State House ?
grounds read for placement as the time j I
of the breaking out of tbe civil war. u
AU this beautiful ;vork done in Italy j a
by the Sculptor Kirk Brown, was de- (
stroyed ic the war with about ?50,000 I j
worth of other material ready for use. ; v
Tbe marks of the cannon bails are ?tili j t
to be seen on the west side Gf the State v
House. It is said half a million doU v,
lars will be needed to finish the build- ?
in$ as originally designed.
TbeState House stands at the head ?
of Maia street, the principal thorough- t
fare of Columbia, and reminds one of a
a light set on a green hill ; or like a t
diamond ic a emerald setting. Tho a
mass of white stODe can be seen for ; c
miles around, and as one draws near t
the crass which covers the beautiful
sloping elevation, seem startlingly.'
green and fresh and smooth, but nature
seem3 to spread this beautiful carpet
all over Columbia.
The of?ices of the Governor and
other State officials and the Supreme
Court rooms and library cccufy the . ,
first floor. The Senate and House of;
Represenentalivey and the S
Library aie on the second floor,
believe South Carolina is the <
State which still preserves the
time flavor of royalty in her S
Douse ceremonies. At the inaug
tion of the Governor there is
same promo and display observed
in the time of the colony
sword of State and the mace
presented for the reverence of
people, and the President of
Renate and the Speaker of the Ho
app?ar, dressed in purple robes
6i"lk and velvet and heavy embroide
I have been to?d that the Speaker
the House finds the robe so he;
that during the proceedings of
body over which he presides, he
his gown hooked to the back of
chair, so that in rising to put qi
tions to the House he will not h?
to liftits weight so often. Tb
is an instance in the State where
robe of this kind passed from fatl
to soi?after a long interval, and t
practice of looping the robe on 1
chair prevailed in both its terms
cse. When the Supreme Court
the State is in session the judges
ways appear on tj^e bench in judie
growns. This has always been t
practice in Sooth Carlina. New Yo
has recently letnrned to tbiscustoi
tbu I believe these two States are t
only ones which now have that ci
tom,-thal has always bad the hij
precedent of the Supreme Court
the United States, and within t
last few years bas the new authori
yf the United States Court of A
peal. Within the memory of mi
lot yet old the high sheriff's in Ne
England appeared on State occa
ons with cocked hats and sword
jut it is only in South;Carolina no
:hat the sheriff dons an official ga
ment and carries a sword of ofS<
whenever he goes forth to mal
m arrest. To the culprit this seen
ike taking a royal coated pill..
In the office of the Secretary <
State I saw the mace. It was pr<
tented to the cobuy by the King (
England as emblem of royal author
y. It bears the royal arms and th
trown, and is a massive and valuabl
nece of workmanship. Andre*
Jackson was a native of South Care
ina, and in his last will he bequeathes
o the State a service to be presente*
o the native of South Carolina, wb
n the next war should be selected a
he bravest soldier of the State. Th>
ext war was with Mexico, and whe:
he question of selection of- the re
ipient of this token came up it wa!
3nnd impossible to agree as to whicl
on of South Carolina bad most dis
ioguished himself for bravery Ai
result the bequest was replaced ir

sat it should go to the last survivoi

Among other historic relics care
illy preserved and held in high rev
renee are the great seals used at dif
?rent times in the history of the peo
Ie of the State There is the great
eal used by the Lords Proprietors in
ue 17th century, the great seal used
y the colony during the time the
oyal mace was helo as^ the emblem
f the King's sovereign power, and
ist the great seal of the State ol
k^jth Carolina, to which some time
as attributed a sovereign signifi
auce hardly claimed at that time by
ny other State, and now used for
he ordinary current business of the
?tate, and which in the iatest times
as given sanction to strange experi?
