THE KINfiS COUNTY JAIL Recent Improvements in tke Bnlldlng-The Present Condition. &e.? dfce. A number of ImprovemenU have recently been made at the Kings County Jail, In Raymond street, and the bnildlng now presents a very creditable appearance. The condition of the jail seemed to have bran entirely over looked by the Board of Supervisors for n number of years past; and had It not been for the appearance of the cholera last summer it might in all probability have been left a number of yoars longer without a cbauge. For the want of proper ventilation in the wings of the building in which cellB are located the prisoners, after a month or more of conQnemont, would come out with their health more or less impaired. Good aiied. ven tilators have bean pat in through theso wings, and the cells are now dry and clean, and their condition in alt respects is snch that tbo health of the prlsoucrs would in no wise be Impaired, even by long confinement. The Jail Committee of the Board of Supervisors, Messrs. Ryder, Clark and Voorhies, who are deserving of credit for the attention they have paid in having the building thoroughly fixed up, made a visit of Inspection to the jail yesterday afternoon. They surveyed the changes which had been made, and expressed themselves well pleased with the alterations and appearance of tbe building throughout. Tboy complimented Sheriff Camp hell for the improvements which bad boon mode in the appearance of tho place since he had taken charge of It. The large room formerly occupied for the County Court aud as a meeting room lor the Board of Supevisors has been partitioned oil, and now forms thr jo rooms on tho wx-oud lloor, besides which there is one large room on tbe third. One of these rooms on tbe second floor, which is quite commodious, is used as the debtor's cell. The other two, which are situated on the wert side of the building, are to lie used as oommittoe rooms for ttie Supervisors: Tbe large room on tbe third Uoor may some day be fitted up as a chattel. Tbe apartments tor merly occupied as tho debtor's cells on tbe third floor were directly over tbe Sberltt's a;>artments, and the wasto water ran down through the lloors and dis figured and destroyed the walls. They have now been abandoned, and the Sheriff's room* have boen put in good condition. The building has been painted throughout. There has been a marked change In the appenrunce of the jail yard and there is scarcely any danger of the Board of Health Indicting the place aa a nuisance this season. The old sheds, oow stables and pig pens bave all been removed and sewer connections have been mado, so that no stagnant water low remains about tbe promises. The Improvements have not as yet been all completed. CITY INTELLIGENCE.

For some few days past a large number of ladles attached to the various Catholic churches throughout the city bavo been busily engaged In collecting subscriptions anu donations for a mammoth fair, which Is to be held at Union square for the boncQt of the Catholic Protectory at Westchester. Thus tar iho fair devotees, who bavo lent themselves to the work with an ardor highly com mendable bave been vary successful and already have collected and been prom sod cnougb to furnish In good part a large entertainment. As the members of all the churches In the city, somo thirty In number, had sigmlled their Intention to take part in the proposed festival, and aa no building could be found of adequate dimensions suitable for the purpose of holding the festival, application was made to the Street Commissioner for permission to erect a temporary building at the northerly end of Union square, in tbo Mime place as was occupied by the Sanitary Fair. Tbe Commissioner granted the request without delay, and artisans and architects were found willing to aid the good work by tbelr skill and labor. Accordingly, tbe plana having boon arranged, the building will be com menced to morrow morning, and will. In all probability, be ready for occupation by tbe 1st of May. ft will extond along the northerly side of the square 2M feet, will be 00 feet in width and will have at each end a wing extending southwardly AO (hot It will be built more with* view to substantiality than show, and will be lighted throughout with gas.

There will be a kitchen, n refreshment saloon, shooting gallery and all other concomitants of a mammoth fair, and although tbe entrance fee is to be almost a nominal one there can be no doubt that the enterprise will be so largely patronised aa to make It a complete success.
