The Evening Sun as a result of its investigation prints a long- expose of the abuses and mis- management in the lUackwell's Island penitentiary, the conduct of which, it says, is a disgrace to humanity. This statement applies more particularly to the sanitary condition of the establish- ment. What the saniwr3' state of af- fairs is may be judged from the fact that no longer ago than las-r, April the prison was swept by a scurvv, which nothing short of almost criminal nopliffpnce could have brought on.
