In consequence. are at 1 lanre to attend to tbe leas argent calls of member* of the fourth estate and other Bohemians. The Cbateao de Cblllon had Ita "snow-white battlements" snd picturesque surroundings to redeem Its character aa an "emblem of bell," but oar local "nursery of rice" la not relieved byany such adornment It stands forth an architectural aborUen?Its repulsive appearance outside fitly at ado wins? forth tbe lack of comfort and convenience wlthla. Our readers are no donbt familiar with tbe dull blue wall* of the bnlldlng and ltt barred wlndowa, jealously fenced In by low, sullen Inc.loaures. which hardly leave room for the barren, plnched-up yarda The prison Is known among those familiar with "alang" aa "tbe blue Jug." It uaed to be the caae that dwellera In the neighborhood were aertonaly annoyed by the prisoner* on the second and tbird floora, who would hall acquaintances, or even strangers passing along the street, and of course they were not choice in their selection of epithets. They would offend the eye as well as the ear. by their vtolatlona of the lawa of decency, until it became necessary to provide a remedy, and the wlndowa were boxed up. A frame with slats Is fixed outside of each window, about two feet frrm it, so that "Insiders" cannot conveniently look over It nor under It. The alata slant upward, like a reversed window blind, ao ihat the prisoners, if they take the trouble to look through thsm st all, can see the sky, but not the ground. Whether this arrangement has a tendency to elevate their thoughts and lead their aspirations skyward, we have not yet settled to our satisfaction. Eaterlng by tbe g??e In the fence on Fourth st , you perceive the main entrance to the jail to be In the center of the building, on tbe south side. Once through this portal,which Is generally open In summer, you stand In the guard room, which Is a square vaulted chamber. Right before you, aeroM the corridor ?which runs through the building from end to end?Is a strong lron-grskd door, and through that you aee on one side tbe nsrrow stone steps lesdlng to tbe cells above, and on the other side your vision extends out into the gloomy prison yard To this grated door prisoner* descend to see their friend* from the outside world, and many aad meeting* of father and children. buaband and wife, brother and sister, guilt and innocence, have here been witnessed bv the stoical guards On this sldeof the door Is placed a large curved bar, ao placed aa to keep "inside" aad "outside" at arm's length. Adjoining the guard room, on the west, ia the office, and in It the armory, with musketa, sabers and pistols, all of the old style. The guards, however, have lately been fornlahed by the Government with an improved "Colt" each, and tb*-se are always taken Into the cells when a guard has occasion to visit them, *' for fear of accidents " In the office ?ty? taa casefor medicine*?a drug store In miniature Adjoining the office Is a bed room, at vrt*ent occupied by Dr. Fleming, a surgeon or tbe Confederate army,who was captured in June last. He has the run of the outside yard on parole, and sometime* goes to cbarch with Justice Donn. He does not look at all like a prisoner, and seems to be always In good health and aplrlts. Next tbe office on the east is the store room, with a good supply of bacon, corn meal, Ac , and adjoining that tbe kitchen They were cooking dinner when we entered, aad the heat from the large open fire-place waa overpowering. Severtl oldfeshloued Dutch ovens, with a mammoth corn "pone" in each, were ranged before this fire, while two large boilers of meat were simmering over a ranee at one side. After examination of these arrangements one of tbe jailors said be waa reedy to accompany us to the cells Tbe guard on duty then unlocked the door, we entered, and It closed behind us; and bearing the key grate In the lock we had a queer seamtfon of being locked In " Tbe cells on tbe first floor are on the north side of the corridor? the rooms we have described being on the south side Tbe cells are small, dark, damp and disagreeable In one of them, crouching over his bed with his back to the wall, and with lrona on his ankles, was Roberts, the soldier who killed the teamster Wolfe. He looked up with a pleasant mile on being accosted, and ai d he was quite coaifertable. The guards sav he Is a quiet, manageable fellow, snd from hlssppearance we judge the demon drink la at tbe bottom of hia troubles. In the same range is a poor, deranged soldier, named Stewar'; and we now say plainly to those in authority that unless be Is removed from tbat miserable place somebody will be answerable for bis death. At the insane Asylum he could receive tbe attention his case demands. In this range we noticed a bright, Intelligent youth, with a pleasant face, and asked him what be was doing there. He said he didn't know, he believed It was for breaking somebody's window on the Avenue The intelligent guard who accompanied us, (Mr. Duval,) was amused at onr verdancy In supposing anybody In the jail had "done anything " All are vlctlma of human prejudice and the tyranny of law?according to the prisoner's idea. The stereotyped answer to all Inquiries Is similar to tbat of the boy "Jo" In Bleak Houae, "I never done nothlnk." Moat of the cells have grated doors, bat one called "the dungeon," (a distinction It Is not more entitled to than the rest ) hsa a solid iron door. Tbe stone flags ot tbls floor have been torn up by tbe fingera of a violent prisoner, and a hole beaten la the door by the same man. He must have been a Hercules Having seen enough on this floor, we ascended to the range of celia on tbe second floor. Immediately above those we had just visited Here, near tbe grated door of tbe passage, on tbe right, stood a gentlemanly looking person, dressed In blaek cloth, with a olue cord down the seams of his paataloon*. He advanced to the door, and we aooo found he was the Rev. John Green, Chaplain of tbe Tenth Pennsylvania regiment, whoae arrest has been noticed In the Star A clergyman In prison on the Sabbath day, charged with a criminal offence, was a sad sight Hegave us his hand through the grating, while in a trembling vote* he spoke of tbe charge against him, and aald he hoped bis name would not be mentioned in tbe papera We told blm It bad been already re pored He spoke In feeling terms of his wife and children In Pennsylvania, and of tbe hardship of not being allowed to see any friends on tbls day (Sunday) who would Interfere for his release we left him pleading his Innocence and lamenting his bard fete. In the aame range were two very reapectable looking men, who the Jailor informed us, were tbe brothers True, New York business men, la on a charge ot defraudlag Lewi* Job' soa of this city Id the opposite range Richard Evans was confined, who, It will be remembered , shot tbe young soldier, John Howard, In boat of the National Hotel some months since, ffha call la tbls same rang* next the door was tbat la which Sargt. John H Murphy (of tbe jprj caae) was con fined After sentence waa pass si oa blm be made an e?>rt to eecape. He n>? bare been famished with a mw knife or sometfclag ot the kind, by some of his friends. It waa noticed by tbe guards taat be alwaya laid 4own with bla bead next tbe door aad clasped tbe gratlag with bis bands. On last Thursday alabt It w?a discovered, la locking him la, that the Iron which holds the bolt of tbe lock bad bean separated, snd aa effort mads to bide It by tying It aa He was subsequently Ironed until his removal to tbe pealtenUary oo Saturday.

Abby I Knight snd Mary de Mark-wboee committal for "iammoue conduct" was noticed In the Star a short time ago Mary la a Urge-eyed, peasivelookiag branette of slender form, about 17 years aid At thetlmeofour vlaltahebsdaahawlspresd oa the floor oo which she was seated, and appeared to be so Intently occupied on needle work ^something elss. that ahe did aot look up at oar aDOroaeh Abby, the Bangor lam.

Ac ,?aome lying on < the bed, aome s'andlng, and others walking the 1 floor Impatiently, all looking with aome cariosity ] at their Sunday visitors in the rooms adjoining this one negroes are con- ( flned, and in one we noticed about 18 or 20 run- 1 away slaves, all looking aa cheerful and contented | aa lr they were In a palace They greeted our t entrance with a broad grin all round, and when j oar escort playfully remarked, "These boys, you l see, look comfortable enough; thev have just j finished their breakfast?warm cakes, and bam < and eggs," a load guffaw bore witness to the i truth of the first part of the assertion, while the \ piece of "corn pone" in the fist and between the i ivory teeth of a small darkey sitting in the win- | dow, seemed to throw a ray of doubt over the i ' ham and eggs," a joke which they all seemed to relish amazingly. The room in the southeast i corner is the hospital. We entered and found \ two white men In bed and a half doxen walking about?ail here on the charge of aeceestonlsm, and i all genteel in appearance. The Ktrbya and others, whose amet in Prince George county. Maryland, ' was noticed In this paper, are here. Being asked i how they were, oae of them replied, "Comfortable enough; bat the d?d niggers make such a noi?e ] In the passage nobody can rest." The guard re- i proved the darkles instanter It was naturally 1 trying to the nerves of folks with secession pro- i clivlties to have the despised nigger, '-the cause 1 ef all our woe," In all its phases, free and slave, J la the adjoining rooms and ranging through the t passages The passages, be It known, sre In < common to white and black, though the rooms t are separate. One of these prisoners In the room ] we were speaking of was urgent for a book to read, but the eatabllshment it seems could not < aff <rd one. The evils of these "secesh" prisoners ( roust be aggravated too by the sight of an Immense American eagle drawn on the wall of the room by some Illustrious artist prisoner, who ( executed his work with such spirit thst it Is sag- j gestive of Yankee Doodle and Hall Columbia all ' over We noticed in several of the rooms very 1 creditable drawings, some colored and some 1 plain, s great many life sise, and the majority ' religions subjects, such as "The Crucifixion." < "Angels at the Cross." Ac. i Having fully gratified aur curiosity inside, we 1 came down and passed into the jail yard, which is on the north side. We were glad to get In the t open air again, even though It was In a prison yard. This Is the only yard the prisoners are ? allowed to use, and is where they procure their * water, a pump being In the center of the yard. * Beyond the pump Is s guardhouse, where there is ' a watchman night and day. In the southeast corner of the yard is the place where the gallows ' is erected, when It Is necessary to use one. We < entered the prison again, called for the guard on duty, passed through the grated door Into the I corridor, were locked out as we bad been locked in, and visited the eastern (kitchen) yard, and the 1 western, similar to it, both Inclosed with low ' walls Bill Woodward escaped by finding the 1 ?grated door unlocked, passing ; long the corridor | nto this west yard and scaling tae Tow wall with a piece of scantling. In climbing this wall, or I the fence beyond, he received the woand which < caused his death t We are Indebted to the courtesy of the jail ofll- ' cera for affording ua every facility to visit all parts ( of the prison It is badly arranged, dark, damp, and unsafe, and entirely too small to accommodate half the number of prisoners generally confined J there It would be inhuman to confine convicted criminals 'here, end what shall we say of innocent * persons Incarcerated in these gloomv cclls await- J ing examination ? The prison was probably about ' as clean as could be expected The jailor, Mr. John H Wise, and his assist- ' ants, no doubt do all in their power to keep it so, J but they would need the eyes of an Argus and ' the hundred hands of Brlareus to accomplish it. f The prisoners nave to wash their own clothes Inside the prison. It is whitewashed every week or #vo throughout, and the floora regularly cleaned, which would be enough and more than enough T in a proper building; but here It only tends to keep the 111th from being offensive The pipes J for Potomac water are now laid through the building, and that no doubt will tend greatly to purify the atmosphere '-within these walls stifled . by damp and stench " But what Is wanted Is a g new jail, built with some regard for the health of r the prisoners whether they be guilty or Innocent, r Liqcor Casks ? J. Reynolds and C. F. McCar- t thy were arrested yesterday afternoon, for selling 1 liquor to soldiers Reynolds was flned $2.5 by I Justice Donu, and McCarthy, who was only In the bouse at the time, was dismissed The law i makes no provision for costs, as in other cases; ? consequently the bulk of these arrests sre made ' by the soldiers themselves, and not by the civil 1 officers This accounts tor the fact that the liquor ' law is so openly violated, dally. Congress, in j passing the law, was not aware, probably, that | our county ofllcers who desl with United States i cases make It a rule "to do nothing for nothing." t Chas Haburn was arrested this morning and 1 tiken before Justice Dodo, for selling or giving 1 quor to members of the Storges Rifle Corps, for , which he was ordered to pay a fine of AKKXSTOr CotJSTT CoNSTABLB A E. L. K KISK By request of the officers of the Provost Guard j we yesterday refrained from mention of the arrest of County Constable Keese As the fact, however, haa been made public by a city paper, we suppose that nothing will be gained by further retl- ' cence in the matter. Some surprise was occasioned by bis arrest by the Provost Guard from tbe fact of his having been of the three month volume* rs, (District,) and from his many elab- I orate displays of loyalty. Further Inquiry seems, c however, to have satisfied the Inquirers that tbe ^ arrest was based on Information that could not pass unheeded by the authorities Row inGiokgbtown.?Yesterday evening two soldiers entered the premises of Mr. Jos Nlcbol- ' son, on Bridge street, Georgetown, near tbe canal, and drove his wife from the bouse. Mr. Nlchol- q son. who was near at the time, Immediately came <1 to the rescue, when he was sailed by the two sol- c dlers, but being an athletic man be caught up a pick handle and so belabored the men that it ' will probably be a life lesson for them When ' our Informant passed there, one of tbe men was standing on ths pavement bleeding freely about \ the head, and the other apparently "used up," was being brought up the steps of an area by three msn. Dkvxkin Txamstxx ?Yesterday afternoon, a Government wagon drawn by a fine t-am passed down Seventh street about half-past five o'clock, and by their motions ths horses seemed Inclined , to run away. The attention of pedestrians was attracted to tbe driver, who was jerking and pulling the line, and yelling to the leading horses. He swayed from sde to side in tbe saddle, and it , was evident that he was drunk Fortunately, the animals were clearer headed than the driver, and kept to the middle of the carriage ways and avoided collision with vehicles. Fatal Accidbnt ?Yesterday afternoon, while some soldiers of the Thirty seventh New York Regiment were performing picket duty a mile or two beyond Arlington, they entered a hous*, and while (naide beard tiring, which they supposed was by secessioa pickets. They ran out, when tbe gun of one or them was accidentally discharged, fatally wounding a member of company B, named Thomas Rosney. Tbe ball entered bis spine and passed entirely through his body. He died In a short time after being brought to the E street hospital. Assault a an Battxkt .?L. Straus was arrested yesterday by ofilcer Turner for an assaultsnd battery on a small boy named Robert Reese. Tbe sssault was fully proved, and the accused attempted to justify his conduct by inslnnalions against the boy's honesty. The boy produced evidence, however, of an excellent character; and Justice Johnson, who tried the case, rejected the plea, lectured tbe accused on tbe Impropriety of taking tbe lsw In his own bands, and required him to give ball for court. Is it T?It Is stated on tbe street this morn- j lag, upon what Is regarded aa rellsble authority, that some of the boys employed In the Arsenal have beea putting back shot la blhnk cartridges, 1 aad at tbe same time, Instead of the geaulne, Inserting harmless imitations ef bullets tu the nail cartridges The matter will doubtless be Lnvsstlgated.

Resignations or the Auxiliary Guard ? Mondsy night after tbe result of tbe election in the City Council for Mayor was known, Charles E Mann. Samael Spalding and R. W. Dove resigned; tbe first because or the reduction of the ' pay from fifty to forty dollars per month, and the two last were udwilling to serve under the new munlclpsl authorities.
