Inspection of the Jail of Henrico County by an Ofpicerofthe Frkedmen's Bureau.? On yesterday afternoon Captain C. B. Cook, one of the attaches of the Freed mcn's Bureau, paid an ollicial visit of in spection to the jail of Henrico county. Mr. George V. Case, deputy sheriff and jailor, accompanied him on his rounds. Ouo of our reporters was present, and went through the ditlerent cells with the party. Captain Cook expressed himself as satisfied with the condition of the jail, and that the in mates were as comfortable as they could be under their confinement. This must be gratifying, not only to the county authori ties, but to the friends of the prisoners. I n this jail all who know Mr. Case were satis fied beforehand that no unnecessary suf fering would be experienced by those who j had been so unfortunate as to get under 1 his charge. Captain Cook interrogated the different inmates, saying that as an oflicer of the United States he was there to in spect their condition, and if they had auy complaints to make, to let him hear them. All of the prisoners expressed themselves as satisfied with their treatment, but seve ral complained of their lack of tobacco. One old darkcv said that " when lie cum dar he didn't spec to be treated like he was at a hotel." There are in this jail only four cells which arc used at present, and there are peventeen prisoners. Cell No. 1 contains the only white per son in the jail ? John Phelps. He is in lor stealfrfj a horse and a mule. Cell No. 2 has seven negroes confined in it ; put in for various crimes. Cell No. 3 has two negro men ; one ot them awaiting trial for grand larceny. Cell No. 4 has seven negro women, all of them awaiting trial under indictment b) the grand jury. While on this subject, we would remark that Mrs. ?Sybil Jones, a member of the Society of Friends, who has recently made a visit to the various prisons in the south ern States for the purpose of seeing their condition, and, if needed, to devise some mode of relief, told us on her return that the penitentiary and different jails of this city were the best that she had seen ; that the discipline, fare, and treatment of the prisoners here was far better than in anj other southern State.

D., President of Columbian College, will lecture in the First Baptist church on Thursday and Friday night, on "Scenes aud Sights in the East," illus trated by maps and charts.

The proceeds of the lectures will be appropri ated for the benefit of the Leigti-street Baptist Church Sunday school. Was it one of the Public Guard ? ? It was not ; but one of the interior guard of the penitentiary from whom a convict es caped a few days since. The notice in this paper stated that the prisoner escaped 44 from the sentinel," and the inference has been that the "sentinel " aforesaid belong ed to the Public Guard ; which was not the case. Porte-Monnaie Lost. ? A gentleman lost his porte-nionnaie on the night of the 19th instant, either on the Danville or the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac train? more probably the latter, he thinks. The porte-nionnaie contained a small sum of money and two notes, one for $300 and the other for ?750. He offers the money and $10 in addition to the tinder if he will return the notes. The Si n.? It has been a long time, per haps, since old Sol's rays lent more cheer fulness to the hearts of our people thi?n on yesterday.
