THE NEW BALTIMOUK'jAII.
' lULTtMORt, November 23, 1803.
During the present, week, bsvlng spent a few
days with a much esteemed friend who now
holds a high position In the municipality of
Baltimore,'!, availed myself of his official In
troduction tn order to view and examine tho
new Jail, of which I had heard a favorable ac
count from, gentlemen whose acquaintance with
prison architecture and the requisite appoint
ments of such buildings entitle their opinions
to great respect. I was the more anxious to
pay a visit to tho pew Jail of Baltimore because,
as an old citizen of Washington, well acquaint
ed withr tb'e deficiencies and miseries' of onr
county prison, and Us being presented as a nui
sance for many years past by successive grand
Juries, I wished to call the attention of Con
gress to the subject and to, point out any Im
provements which I might deem worthy of spe
cial or veneral notice. But I must content mv-
sclf for the present with a brief statement of
what I saw yesterday through the kind atten
tion of the obliging and ' Intelligent ward
en, Mr. Thomas V. James, who accompanied
me through the different departments of the
prison. The Jail, tt appears, contalasSOOceUs.
and each prisoner occupies one cell. All tho
occupied and unoccupied cells which I entered
and minutely examined were In excellent order,
clean, wholesome, and free from any disagree
able odor. And I mar truly ear that In no
part of the building could I perceive any of

such Jails as that of Washington city. Tbecu
Unarv department of the Baltimore lall'ls pro
vided with every modern improvement, and the
baking ana cooking apparatus appear to woric
admirably. Being present at the dinner hour I
saw the dinners of all the prisoners . drawn up
to the corriders by machinery on trays, so that
eacn prisoner nsa nis meats conveyeu 10 mm
In his cell. In this way the noise, confusion
aud Inconvenience of eolng to and from a com
mon dlnlnir room were entirely avoided. In
less than twenty minutes, as the" warden In-

The warden also Informed me that the Jail

I have a sad accident to record, resulting In
the death of a member of company IT, of our

The following case, Illustrating tho "audacl
ty of the Federals,'1 Is worthy of record: ,
During the progress of one of tho encouuters
by the reconnoitre! ng party on the 8th, Lieut.
Nell, of Major Burchs battalion, of the Second
Illinois cavalry, rode up to a Confederatecaral
ryman, and with pistol In hand demanded a
surrender. The rebel did not hesitate a mo
ment to eay, rather aUrlghtedlyi
" Yea yes I surrender! don't shoot."
"Let mo havo your arras,' said Nell.
The Southerner quickly haoded to his captor
a carbine aud two six-shooters, all loaded.
This new armament somewhat embarrassed
Nell. Like the man who won the elephant at
a raffle, he was a loss to know what to do wllb
It. Finally bo asked the prisoner to hold his
(Nell's) pistol, while ho disposed of the cap
tured arms by strapping them on his saddle.
Tho Confederate took occhbIoii tuexainlno
the lieutenant's weapon, and after looking ut
It minutely, exclaimed, very truthfully t "Well,
I'm a an wuu arcn-i4goou one on mo, to sur
render to a man that hasn't got tho sign of a
load In his pistol." Tho chagrin of the rebel
was only exceeded by his full appreciation of
the Joko which had been played on him. lint
