Visit to thi Pisitkntiab.t ?A few days slice we visited this Institution, snd through the att of its courteous officers were enabled to get s gsod Idea of Its present condition, wltb many irseresting facta relative thereto. On entering tt? prison proper we found ourselves In a spacious stsreroom, In which is stacked a large quantity cf broom-corn, to be made up into brooms: and some Mi pairs of sewed shoes of excellent quality, aKhough course look inc. which have been made Itr the army, and wvre then ready for dellverv. Leaving this room we passed through another -dtor Into tta? main building, in which sre the '.als for the prisoners, arranged In fbur tiers with gdleries leading to them There are 2'4 of these cala In the building, 39 of which have been la:ely partitioned off from the female department, uflile 32 othera In that department are orcuplett b) the men Theae eel U are about eight feet long iad four feet wide, with a bed on one aide. The d?or ?>f the cella are iron, with bara at the top, aid hav*-a >mall opening at the bottom. Aa a thing they are kept neat and clean, and o<m of tbein arc very taatefully arranged, the ? ets "being ornamentea with napefa of different ?r)ora. A number of them had ahelvoa fitted up as the heada of the cota, on acme of which we Aotictd a number of booka, moatly of a rellgioua itsaracter, and on one a number of ambrotypea, probably of the wife and children of the convict. Ascenain^ me long nigm or stair* to the upper Iter of cells, and turning off to the left, we came | ? the hospital, a large and airy room. In which were several couches, but no Inmates. For several weeks past not a single convict haa made a com {Anlnt of Illness, or haa needed the aervlctsof the evaician. At rweaent 14 of the prisoners lodge re, there not being room enough In the celix fa ail. Retracing our ateps down one flight of stairs, ' i wcome to the chapel, which Is directly under tie hospital Service Is held her? every Sunday :aornlng. by (he chaplain; previous to which the j*!?oners are marched In, and one or two hours are speut in Sabbath school exercise*. The pris<siers are represented aa being very attentive to # the exercises, and the exercises are said to be exfremelv Interesting. Leaving the malp building, ws pasaed dowti a <!ght of step* to (be basement of the front build?ag, where t*e bakery is situated. Here we find 'tr baker., who now has a little spare time, and Is among troughs engaged In putting together a *poo) stand made of pieces of bone which he has <uk into shape during his spare moment*. His partner <for there are two employed here), we are Informed, has gone to his cell to read some favorite hook These men, although at the time Jdlr, are two niont Industrious men?making up Into bread and baking two barrels of flour per 4ay. <Totnc through the yard, in tbe center of which lithe pump, w? observe a number of banda arranging tbe backeUof the prisoner*, according to their number^ preparatory to their being carried into the cclls with them for tbe night; and entering a door la tbe lower portion or the building, in which is the shoe shop, we find ourselves In <he dining room for tbe white priaoner*, In which there are pc-ata for 114; and pausing through an4 .)Ka* A ?

The shoe shop is overhead, and the larger portion of the prisoners are at work in this department On reaching the top of the steps we look Into the door and see some 144 prisoners, dressed in homctnuo,one half white and the other black, Kltfd on the;* henches and as btisv as hm They are arranged is nearly as possible In rows. T*ue benches of tbe blacks, of whom there are 31, jre all kept separate from those of the whites, while those of the soldiers, who have been sent here by court*-martial mostly, for teims varying from one month to three years, and of whom there are over 7?, ars placed between the blacks and the convicts sent down by the civil courts. As a general thing the prisoners here seem to be very contented. Only in one or two instances did we observe a scowling countenance p Coming down the steps and passing Into the * south door of the same building, we enter tbe broom shoo, where 30 hands are env-mrpd Id making broom* of excellent quality. Machinery suitable for the manufacture of tbe brooms Is put up in tb!? ?hop, and tbe hands are very expert it I putting up a broom Leaving now this building wc go towards a cluster of small shops near by. where two carpenters are at work making shoe-benches, the demand for which U so great that they are barely ?

A little distance fr m here i* the fclack?mlth shop, the occupant of which is one of me best workmen that they have ever bad there. At the cut end of the main building, In a small room, there are six tailors at work, making c lothea (or the prisoners, which consist of jacket*, rants a id caps one side white and the other Mack, which gives to the wearers quite an odd ppesrance, and serve* to cause their recognition should they escape.
