THE EVENING STAR A >EWI>I?CgJICB ?r Jiff DAVIS. 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.
