A BOLD ROBBERY.-On Tuesday night a party
or depredators approached Dr. N. A. Pratt's resi?
dence in Rutledge avenue, near Spring street, and
drawing down the fan-light, succeeded In making
an entry into the parlor. Nothing was troubled
by them, but one of the party ascended noiseless?
ly to the attic, and there secreted himself tn a
oloaet, which was never used. The villain laid
here all day Wednesday without being discover?
ed, and that night when all was quiet, came oat
and went to work. He seems to have gone
through the whole house, and collected several silk
cresses, a velvet cloak, and other valuable arti?
cles or apparel. Yesterday morning the front
door was found open, the traces or the Olef were
^-discovered In the closet, and numer?os articles
missed. nair or shoes were found by a servant
under the ^attora leading to the yard gate, and
later In the day a colored relio w was seen hover
lug around and at last asked for his shoes. The
servant .charged him with the theft and turned
him over to the police. He was taken before the
Mayor and Bent to the House or Correction for I
twenty days. The rest or the party will probably 1
be captured to-day.

SSERIFF MICKEY'S HOTEL.
Life In the Charleston Jail-How the
Prisoners ?re Kept-Thc School and
the Pupils-Dinner in the Corridor
Bill of Fare, ?fcc.
The Charleston Jail ls one of the most com?
plete and well appointed public Institutions In
the city. The object.or a jail, that of keeping
prisoners secure, has been moat completely at?
tained, and, with the exception or the mysterious
Grimes, an escape from Its walls bas not been
chronicled since the war. The massive building,
with its buttresses and castellated walls, Its lofty
to?er, its heavily barred gate and windows, Its
"Loop-hole grates where captives weep,
The flanking walla that 'round them sweep,"
are all familiar tc our citizens; and the flourish
mg condition of the Institution, and the Immense
patronage it bas received in the past few years,
make lt an object of Interest to all. In the past
year or so the condition or the unfortunate In?
mates has been considerably ameliorated, and un
der the rule of Sheriff Mackey things are working
in a most orderly and creditable manner.
IN THE JAIL
there are now one hundred and five prisoners,
the number hiving been considerably reduced
lately by the "new departure" or sixteen promt
neut inmates for the Penitentiary at Columbia
Of these seventy are'State prisoners, and the re?
main lng thirty-five are under sentence or await
mg trial m the United States Court. The latter
are kept separately, and being confined princi?
pally for offences during the November election,
are not ordinarily ruffians, but mostly men of in?
telligence. The seventy State prisoners are those
sentenced at the last term of the Court of General
Sessions, those sent tn by trial justices, and lastly,
those who are committed for trial at the Novem?
ber term. There are bnt ten white prisoners In
the whole lot, and of these three are females.
TlfE MALE AND FEHALE PRISONERS
are kept in separate cells, and their quarters are
lui te comfortable. ? The cells are .. eli ventila tedi
ind particular'attention ls directed to the cleanli?
ness of the prisoners and their apartments.
Every morning the
TIN PAN BRIGADE
turn our, and tie floors of the cells and the walls
ire scrubbed by the Inmates until they are quite
:lean. Their bedding ls also aired meanwhile,
is snon as this la finished, they are Inspected by
the physician ot the the Jail, and lt la a fact worth
noticing, that since October, 1868. only two
leaths ('rom disease) have occurred among the
prisoners. This ls something unusual, and
ipeaks well for the sanitary measures no rr pur
med. AB soon as the scrubbing ls over, the pris
mers repair to
ind enter upon a new sphere or duties. The
ichool ls a charitable undertaking, which was
>rlglnated and has been carried on by Mrs. J. C
Haussen, the wife of the Jailor. It was instituted
n June, 1870, and has since then been kept up by
1er exertions, without any payment or recoin
jenso from tho State or county. The pupils can
ll afford to pay, and the charity, inasmuch as lt
roes to the abode and centre of crime, ls ao much
he more praiseworthy. The pupils are taught
rom 10 o'clock until 2.30 P. M. each day, except
Saturdays, in summer, and Sundays. The princi?
pal ls assisted at times by such white prisoners
is are able to do so. On Sundays the services of
i preacher are usually obtained, aud the prison

THE SCHOOL ROOM.
a a large roomy apartment on the second floor,
ind ls filled with l->ng benches upon which the
cholars sit. The walls around are covered with
?lack boards upon which the dally lessons
ire Inscribed with chalk. In the beginning a lot
?fbooks were obtained, but the pupils after ser v
ng their term In jail generally forgot to leave
heir books, and so the system of book-teaching
tad to be abandoned. There are now about
eventy pupils In the school, sixteen of the most
orward scholars graduated a few days ago, and
eft for the university (Penitentiary) In Oolum
ila. Nene but Inmates of the prison are allowed
0 attend, and they are all divided Into
TWO LAROB CLASSE3.
The first class ls well advanced, and la taught
.rtthmetlc and geography. They read the Bible,
nd spell with great facility long words or three
yllables such as "larceny," and know the mean
ng or lt too. The shining light la this class waa
len ry Taylor, who went to the Penitentiary las
reek for stealing. While awaiting his trial he
inproved his mind, and If he ls not hanged, will
irobably be an educated maa one ol these days,
ames dillard ls now at the head, and is also
walting his trial for grand larceny. He has
ve months until November, and is making the
lost of them. Thia class ts composed of grand
ircenlsts and assaulters, with an occasional
THE SECOND CLASS '
1 composed of smaller fry. They have their let
srs and words of one fyi.able printed In chalk on
he blackboard, and from the same source or tn
plraOon. they chant a lesson In the mal ^plication
abie'. ' Most or these are vagrants and petty ?ar
enlata. They are not the beat dressed or the most
itelllgent looking set In the world, but the field
i not hopeless. The small boys learn quickly,

nd explained to them, particularly the eighth,

) the learning or the prisoners is the interrnp
ion occasioned by their term being out. Most or
tem are sent for thirty days, and at the en t of
iat time are discharged and rotgut everything,
t is curious, however, that they always .cum to
ie school arter a short holiday, in spite or the
IgBth commandment they fall Into their old
ricks, and are aent up for another term. The
harleston thieves are not numerous enough to
scape detection ror a long time. A robbery ls
ommitted, and the thief ls immediately suspect
d. In this way several pupils have been at
chool m the Jail for eight or nine months, with
ut four or five days of holiday at the end of
ach thirty days. This is the effect of the trial
istice system, and where Judges are so numer?
us, the Jails must be full. A short time ago, a
FOURTEEN' FANCY FOWLS,
nd wa) sent to Jail for twenty-five days. He con -
?sed lt m jail, laughed at the term Imposed, and
aid he would serve ont the term and then get the
Dvris. He said they were worth lots of money,
nd he could afford to buy them at that price.
Yesterday the female pupila were unable to at
snd the school until late, the turnkey having ln
dvertently gone off and carried the key to their
ells. The drat class were engaged In their

THE OOOD EFFECT OF THE SCHOOL
ito give occupation, and at the same time In?
unction to the prisoners during several hour*1,
rhlch they hitherto used to spend In cursing,
wearing and gambling. They are now quietly
mpi JV ed, and the residents In the neighborhood
ll bear witness to the Improvement In this re
peet. No noises are heard, and during the school
lours the Jail ls as quiet and orderly as one or thc
rell-regulated public schools or the city. The
,t the Jail are Tuesdays and Fridays, and then
ny one can see any or the Inmates and bring
hem little comforts, which cannot be furnished
rlthln. At hair-past 2 o'clock school ts dismiss
id, and the bell rings ror
?hlB ls served In the large corridor of the Jail,
vhlther the edibles are conveyed. The prisoners
ach produce a targe tin pan and a spoon, and
Lssemblewlth commendable punctuality. They
ire helped to about two quarts or stuff, and the
ivldlty with which they devour it ls wonderful,
'heir appetites are indescribable. Few stop
?hort of two quarts, and one accomplished a wa
er bucket of feed at a sitting. Some or them
mas; but a single garment, having traded all the
est away to the other prisoners for dinners.
Hey have fresh meat three times a week, and
he other four. The latter [ls, by far, the most
popular dish, and* they prefer lt to any other.
It ls composed pf bacon, hominy and cow peas.
These Ingredients are bolled together Into a stiff,
dark-brown mass, and the way in which lt disap?
pears under the delving spoons ls curious to be?
hold. In fact the inmates of the hotel hare as
much done for them as boarders in any other
place, and they patronize the establishment ac?
cordingly. The sheriff ls allowed but 40 cents per
day per head for dieting his prisoners, and with
Buch cheap board, no one can quarrel with the

The Jail has been visited often by successive
grand Juries, who have always reported favorably,
with the exception of a single grand Jury of the
United States Court, who found fault. But the
hotel, ou the whole, to say nothing of the "self
supporting" school, can well bear inspection and
THE MOUNTED CLUB.-Another meeting of |
Ihts popular club was held last night at the hall
3f Hook-and Ladder Company, No. 2, and was
well attended. The president, General James
Sooner, for the drat time since his election, was
present, and, In takln? the chair, addressed the
ueetiag, thanking them for the honor they had <
inferred upon him m a few appropriate' and 1
tappy remarks. Upon the report of the commit- 1
:ee appointed for that purpose, the uniform of the 1
:lub was adopted. It ts tasteful and handsome, 1
md consists of a black velvet cavalry Jrcket, se- 1
sured by a Bingle palmetto button at the throat,
Tit ? a bus vest, black pants and high top boots
rhe hat ls a black slouch, with feather. The arms
>f the club will consist of a light cavalry sabre
ind a Colt's navy pistol. The sabres will be pro
sured from New York In a few days. A r?solu -
lon was passed thanking the officers and mern'
>era of Hook and Ladder Company, No. 2, for the
ise of their hall, kindly afforded to the club dar?
ug Its meetings, and, after transacting some
?'.uer business of no public interest, the club ad
ot*- ued subject to the call of the president.
NOTHING LESS THAN A MAJOR-GENERAL.-A
audible ambition to make an appearance worthy j
>f his military prestige on the glorious 4th, has [
minced the Irrepressible Major Samuel Dickerson
0 consult the harness-makers, and at Mesara,
??apean A- Heffron may be seen an outfit for the
iarade which would do honor to a maJor-generaL
he major bas given free play to his fancy, and
he result ls a combination Lof trappings, blue

rould be lost in admiration and wonder. TheJ
iridie and headstall are sufficient for four ordl
lary ones, and under them a common horse

pretending saddle ls to be covered with a gen
ral's saddle-cloth of blue beaver, with gold lace
oar Inches deep around the, edges, and studded
nth blazing gilt stars. The rest of the outflt ls

sard of la the regulation book, or conceived by
