eplying a coummanding ponlt a mile
frio the barrack,. and a double cordon
about the anpl proper. The prison
of liel was long wooden structure,
onie story Iln height, with a long -lant
iug roof, and sniall windowt under
the eaves, grated with iron. Two re
liefs of guards o('upied roomis In the
front iportion of the buihling, while
six sentinl s1 pacedl up and down con
titn uouely outside of the structure.
Atother sentinel was placed in front
of the cell of
TIHE CONDEM.NEID I.ALF IBREED,
and the precautions extended so far
that an officer of the guard was conm
pelled to visit, and certify that he had
visited, his prisoner each quarter of
ahl hour. Never was a captive more
jealously gunrtl-d, itld possibly never
was c aptive during thie full period
of his imlprisountMet less in ineel of a
watch (on hii loutward deportmelilnt.
Whiatever hisi character may have
been illn the held a a martial leader of
his counitryumen, in prison lie has fall.
nii hut little sholrt of a religeuse. His
time has been devoted assiduously to
prayer. Even when given his "cou
stitutional," ins the open ground ad
Joinilg the guard room, for an hour
each nmornitg, he has paced back and
forth with his hands clasaped together
in front, his head bowed, with pray
ere Iiwuinig from his lips, voiced either
in the French or Indian (Cree)
tollngue. Soon after his capture he
professed to throw off hie allegiance
to the Roman Catholic church, and
took the guise of a prophet, claiming
to see visious foretelllug events, but
latterly, as his fate seemed more sure
ly sealed, lie sought comfort again of
his original faith, and his constant
and only companion in prison for the
past two weeks has been Pere Andre,
fro.n Fort Albert, close to the scene of
the recent rebellion. The church
man's visits have been twice daily,
and in his absence Riel was seen fre
quently kneeling on his couch in
prayer. When not engaged in devo.
tions, his time has been spent in writ
lug out predictions of the future and
formtulating a

No one, no matter what hi creden -
tials, has been permitted to peas
through the guard room to see the
prisoner in his cell, and his immediate
friends did not see him, although no
restriction was placed upon him. He
received, a few days ago, a letter from
his aged mother, which afleoted hit
visibly, but at no other time daring
his oonfnement did he show any
signs of that weak ness which Wae im
puted to him after his capture by the
Canadiasn scouts. The strict privacy
of the prisoner was broken down bf
the first time yesterday, when a rep

permitted to visit him, in company
