As tbe reader is aware, Rock Island is
ibout three miles long by a mile and a
lalf wide, situated in tbe Mississippi
-tver, between tbe cities of Rock Island,
!.. and Davenport. Iowa. Although the
:ourse of the river is from north to south,
lere it makes a curve which throws the
sland east and west. Tbe river forks at
the east end, and sluggishly crawling
iround the south side, forms what is
known as the "slough." On the south
.ink. opposite the west end, is tbe citv
af Rock Island, 111. The waters of tbe
main branch sweep majestically around
on the north of the island, and unite with
the other branch at the west, both to be
eventually swallowed up in tbe Gulf of
Mexico. Davenport sits on the north
bank. Both cities are connected with tbe
island by railroad bridges. But as we
are not concerned with these we will pro

and behold our boys in the isolation and
irksomeness of captivity.
A brief description of the pri-on is in
order here. It is located in the center of
the island. From the outside you can
see a square enclosure. Tbe fence is of
thick oak planks and about twentv-five
feel high. Within four and a half feet of
the top is a parapet about two feet wide
and on this the ceaseless tread of sen
tinels is never hushed. At the west side
is an immense gate on either side of it
you may see arms stacked and men in full
uniform lounging about. You can also.
if you observe, notice two sentinels on
duty. Men in wagons, driven by men in
blue uniforms, are continually passing,
the gate being opened on a signal from
the nmver of the day.
But the inside interests us more than
tbe outside, so we will pass in imagina
tion and view the surroundings. As we
enter, a wide thoroughfare is presented to
our view; extending to tbe fence on the
opposite side To tbe right and left, and
about fifty yards from tbe ga'e, extend
two rows of one-story houses, enclosed
with upright rou'h boards and strips
nailed over the cracks. These buildings
are about thirty feet by one hundred
and rift v There are eight buildings
on our right, the same number to our
ieft, and they extend to wuhin fifty yards
of tbe fences enclosing tbe north and
south sides of tbe square. If we advance
the thoroughfare first mentioned, called
"the avenue," will be found abo ,t one
hundred feel wide, and as soon as e
pass the first row of buildings there can
be seen a cross avenue extending north
and south to the fences. Then we come
to another row of buildings like the last,
and continuing on we pass another ave
nue and line of buildings as before, until
we pass the sixth row, when we reach
tbe opposite fence about fifty yards from
tbe buddings. Now if w pass around
the square within twenty-five feet of the
fence you will notice stakes driven in
places, and in other places a trench dug.
That is if you slay here long
you will learn to respect. If you
are quick at figures you will have
ascertained ere this that there are
ninety six buildings, or barracks, as they
arc called, and when 1 tell you that each
accommodates one hundred and twenty
men, you know that the prison will en
tertain eleven thousand five hundred and
ind twenty souls. This gives you an
THE BULL PEN.
The correspondent then enters into a
description of the interior of the bar
At the lower end of the room about
twenty-five feet is partitioned off. Near
the center is a Fquare coal stove sur
mounted by a forty gallon caldron this
is tbe kitchen. Returning to the main
hall, we find it arranged for bedding for
bedroom, drawing room, parlor, reception
room and library for tbe number just en
'red A double row of bunks extend tbe
entire length of the hall on both sides.
They are arranged in sections, four bunks
to the section, and fifteen sections on
each side. A space the width of the win
low, divides each section, allowing the
iccupanta room to get in and out of tbe
bunks. These spaces also serve as pri
vate parlors, work shops, studies, etc.
Now, the prison officials and tbe prison
ers fall in line with back to the bunks.
A sentry stands at either end and a ser
geant in front. A pompous looking man
with a sweeping reddish moustache, wear
ing the shoulder strap of a mnjor enters
accompanied by two subalterns. They
are clad in garments suitable for a
hyporborean region, as if in mockery
of the famished unfortunates before
them, many with threadbare jackets.
never warm and not void of boles. To
add to tbeir discomfort no food passed
their mouths for fifty hours. Tbe first

but, as much for your convenience as

the same as our own soldiers receive.
You will have all opportun'ty to
wash your clothing and have tbe free
dom of tbe enclosure between reveille
and taps. Do not keep a lamp burning
after taps at 9 o clock, or the guards will

the dead line or you will be shot from the
parapet. You will be allowed to write
to your friends, but it must be in a clear
legible band, and cover only one page of
note paper. These will be examined, and
if approved and stamped will be mailed
if within our military lines; if without
they will be forwarded under flag of

A GRAVE OFFENSE.
Let us skip from this cold December
day to May 18. 1863. Why select May
1ST Simply because it is an eventful
day. It is "the anniversary of Forney
Holt's trial for the heinous offense of
wearing a biled shirt. Is defendant in
the case of the "Commonwealth vs Holt,"
charged with the highest offense known
to tbe Kangaroo law wearing, or at least
contemplating the wearing of a biled
shirt? We enter barracks 8. A space
is cleared; the judge takes his seat;
the jury file into their places, and the
prosecuting attorney, Paul Jones, is
ready to make the greatest effort of hrt
life. His particular chum is on trial, and
he is Prosecuting. Everybody is impa
tient for the proceedings to commence.
The judge sternly orders tbe sheriff to
proceed in quest or the culprit, ana
issues his order duces tecum. The sher
iff returns, in due time, and, not to be
eutdone by the court, in Latin lore, re
ports the defendant "non-flndabo, non-
com-atabo." While the court is reduced
to inaction, on account of the disappear
ance of the principal in this little come
dy, we will take a stroll and see if we
can learn any tidings of the delinquent.
Notice those men who are evidently not
prisoners eo to the gate and pass un
challenged. They are the doctors. Ninety-six
come in in a body, one for each
barrack. As their tasks are completed
they retire, singly, in pairs, in trios or
quartettes as it may happen. Their garb
is semi military semi civic.and each one
carries a book unoer his arm, line an
ordinary six quire ledger, in which they
keep a record of the sick, their ailments,
etc. See that handsome youth walking
boldly toward the gate. He is dressed
in a neat citizen's suit, his hat of the rak-
sh military style with a gold cord and a
tassel ; be carries a book under his arm.
and is evidently taken for a doctor by the
man on guard, for he gives notice out

swing open becomes to right face and
gives the salute oy touching his gun at
the height of the shoulder the doctor
nonchalantly returns tbe salute, and

It is doubtful if the streets of U k
Island ever presented a more disgraceful
appearance than they do at the present
time. Coming as it does so close upon
the splendid system f street improve
ments which has been begun on Second
avenue, this is anything but a happy
thought. The disgraceful disregard for
public appearances and public conven
iences manifested by the street commis
sioner, to which is due this deplorable
condition of things, is such as should
bring tbe blush of shame to the cheek of
every city father who voted for H.
C. Harris And the A no i s judges
from what it can gain from casual ob
servation that many of the aldermen if
indeed not the majority are mortified
that their aims to improve tbe appear
ance, as well as the solid advancement of
the city, should be thus so handicapp
ed by an indifferent street officer
whose ambition does not exceed tbe
point of his drawing bis salary. The
Argits bss spoken of Mr. Harris' negli
gence before, but it seems to have had
no visible effect upon him, and be has
manifested no disposition to stir himself
or to mend his ways. Our street cross
ings all over town are at the
present time almost impassable to
pedestrians, and will, no doubt.
remain so unless me mayor takes the
street commissioner by tbe ear and
gives a very forcible reminder of
what be is hired for. Take it down
town for instance in the very business
heart of the city in tbe midst of tbe
paved district and it is doubtful if a
lady can cross tbe streets without getting
her skirts saturated, while the gutters in
front of our business houses are a disa
greeable mass of partly frozen material .
There is no excuse for this disgraceful
state of affairs. The street commissioner
has been heard to offer the explanation
that there Is no money in the street fund,
and that he can't do anything without
money. If such is tbe case he should re
port tbe facta to the council, together
with a statement of tbe condition of the
streets, and ask for advice. It is a ques
tion of very grave doubt, however,
if Mr. Harris has ever bad, until
very recently, sufficient interest in
bis work to know whether there
was 1 10.000 in the street fund or
one penny. He knew that he was
getting his salary and beyond that he did
not care to lift his hand or make exer
tion. The Argus fails to comprehend
the advantage the city derives from pav
ing the street commissioner a year's sal
ary for work of but six months of that
time. Better pay him for what he does
and see that he does it. and keep tbe re
mainder in reserve for the hiring of some
one who is capable of looking after the
streets in the winter time. Rock Island
is on the move and it cannot afford to
hold back for turtle strutting almost in
animate objects that are without am
bition or pride in themselves or their
city. Harris should be fired outright
His street work is a disgrace to the mu
