WuDNEsDAY, October lltb, 1865. Board met pursuant to adjouinment, at 9 o'clock, A. M., aud wag callod to order by the Chairman. Roll callcd. Present a quorum. Jourual of yesterday read and approved. Tho öhairman appointed Mr. Krapf as ao additional meinbor of the committee on Public Buildings. The Öhairman preaented the following communication f rom Rev. G. D. Gitlespie and others, in roforenee to the discipline and arrangement of Uounty Jail: Ann Aiiisor, Oct. llth, 1805. To tlie Board of Supervisors of Washtenaw County, iu sessiou at Auu Arbor : Gentlemen - As one of the clergymcn ot this city, I havo boon in the Labit of visiting your jail on Sundays, for the purpose of holding religious servieep. As these services have beeu coutinued fin threeyears, I have had sorne oppoitunity of observing the jail system, aud beg !eave very briefly to lny before your Budv, souio marked deficientes and diffiuultiës of that system whieh may not come un der y.iur obseriratiou iu your neeesdarilv brief visitations of the jail. I desire to state very explicitly, that these difficulties are not conuceted with the adiiiinistration of the jail, so far as the Sheriff and his assislants are concerued. I have notouly been uniformly received with rnuuh kiudne.-e by tho ufficers, and had every fauility given me for charitable labora, but have been impressed with the general good order and uoatness of the wards. Presuming that a jail is designed to exercise a reformatory iufluence, as well as to confine those who are injurióus to society, aud secure pun shuienl f ,r thtir crimes, ït must be very obvious that the uiingling of prisouers of all ages and ehaiacters must be very unfriendly to this design. The only distiuction made iu the Washtenaw County Jail ie in different wards for ihtf sexes. In thü male ward, men and boys, often quito young bo;s, are separa ted only at night. Boys are frequent iumatesof the jail. I havo seen as m&ny as nine or ten there at one time. There is now a lad there wbo is serving out a senterice of one year. It is evident what must be the teudency of the.e youths mingling with old offeuders iu the varioiiH grades of crime. Anotherevil in the present syatem is, the absence of all etnployuient and the free intercourse of the inmatoi. This is particularly illustrated in the female ward. The inmates here are generully prostitutes - a elass fast increasing iu our city To these girls the jail offers no terror-, they are generally bronght in two or more together, and for the short time they are detained they amuse eaeh othor. As evidence of how sliglit is the punish ment, the jaii books would show how frequeutly thy same ofleuders return. As to auy moral mfluence beicg exertud over them, 1 have uniformly fouud tlint white in the meri's ward I have been treated with propriety, and gratnude shown for my visits, I co:ild rarely secure attention or respect in the female ward when there was more than one iumate. The remedy for these evils would be, a separation of the prisoners according to age, the conñnoiiieut of the prisonets duriug a parí of tho day in their cells, and wuch arrangements as would prevent the present free iutercourso. Changes securing theso valuable ends would no doubt involve some present outlay, but it is wonby of inquiry whether asido from the moral beuetit, an arrest of crime would no$ be secured, that would in time repay the present expendilure. The jail system as at present existing in this aud pther coutities, is, in the judgraent of many no le.-s, thau tho fruitt'ul sourep of crime. Tiusting, gentlemen, that the importauce of the subject will esplain and warrant this ooinmunication to your body. I no), very respoctfully yours, G, D. GlLLKSl'IE. We have read the above fipplicatiou of Kev, Mr. Gillespie, and oouaider the subject of it as one of very great ini purtance; aud we respet-iful ly and ear nestly join in the reque'st that tho Board will take suoh aotion in thü matter as thü public interest requires. J.A.MKS lï, GoïT, AlPIIEUS FELOIt, B. F. Gbanger, Joun N. üott, H. J. Beakup, I (oncur in the furegoing views, aml will lurther suggest that, iu my opinión, all the persons, both nvle and i'emaie, that have. heen convicted of offcucus and sent to prisou as a matter of punish'iicnt, shciuld be kept in soütary oonfinoment, and nut ailowed any aiuiiseineiit nor s sociation with eaojj otber. Otherwise their ci)nflnement wili not opérate as a puuishment m a mujoritv oj oasci, taid will rai'ely havo ttuy refurm.atory iu fluenco, E. G.
