CONNECTICUT. the 'Watchman, sny : you 4The fii Rt copper mines opened iu the Ilnifetl Atntet cut.0 I u early times copper mines were work ed At the town of Sinisbnry, Conn., abont 1 5 miles north west of Hartford. The dis covery of the copper was made in 1705 ; aiid ore was dog there for a long time. At first the mines did not smelt the ore ; but at length the proprietors made a con tract with three clergymen to reduce the ore and cast the metal iu bars fj t for trans portation. One tenth was given to the town, and of this two-thirds were to sup port a school, and one third was to go to Yale College. "Wealthy capitalist from Boston and New York and Europe en gaged in the work, and furnished funds fur the purpose. The operations were cariied on extensively from J713 to 1737, and on to 1775. Iu 1723 it was stated i that these mines had brought into the colony 10,000 pounds. The works most mproved and where the greatest excava tions had been made were purchased for t State prison. Two perpendicular shafts tad been dug through rock, one 70 feet, the other 35 feet deep. From the bottom of these, tunnels were carried iu tli tie rent directions, some of them 500 feet. Some of the copper was coined into money of the valne of 42 cents in paper currencv with the inscription on one side "I "am good copper," on the other "value me as you please one of them is preserved, dated 1737; but they did not circulate af ter 1783. Iu 1773, the General Assembly of the State took measures to establish a peni tentiary at these mines. By blasting rocks they prepared a lodging room 12 by 12 iu the caverns, and fixed over one shaft a large iron door; there were no buildings on the premises and the other shaft was left open. The prisoners were employed iu digging the ore, and appa rently kept under ground all the time. It was called New Gate prison. The criminals were those guilty of jburglary, horse stealing, conn teifei ting coin or bills, or making dies for it. As one shaft was left open, and other passages not se cured the early prisoners all escaped through these. In 1775, three escaped and then they secured the other shaft and built a block house over one shaft this was destroyed by lire in 1776, when a new one was made, and a dwelling house for the keeper. This was burnt iu 1779, and new buildiugs were erected ov er the mouth of the cavern suitable to keep the prisoners at labor in the day lime, up to tins time lliey had been em ployed m mining: now they were put to mechanical operations. P1I me 4. i mere was no wan around tne .prison till 1781, when a picket fence with bas tiaua was put around it. But in that year when there were 28 prisoners, they rose ail the guard, seized their anus locked tbein in the cavern and escaped a good many of them were tories It was thought to be a very strong prison. Gen. Washington sent them some men for confinement from Cambridge. He said : "Gentlemen: The prisoners which will be delivered you with this, bavin been tried by a court martial, and deem ed tube such flagrant and atrocious vil- lians that that they cauuotrby any means be letat largo or counued in any ttkice near this camp, were sentenced to be sent to simsbury in Connecticut, loa wil therefore be pleased to have them secur- w - i . eu in your jail, or iu sucn other manner as to you shall seem necessary, so that they cannot possibly maker ("Heir escape The charge of their imprisonment will be at the continental expense. I am, &c, George Washington." In 1781 Congress proposed to make these mines a place for the reception of British prisoners of war, but this was not cariied'oot. They were for a time disused, but 1700 a new act was passed constituting them again constituting them a State prison, called as before New Gate. A large work shop and a dwelling house of brick were constructed. Under one ead of the house was a room secured by mas sive stone walls from which led the only passage to'the cavern. This was through a solid rock ; the month of this entrance was the one leading into the guard room above ; and well secured by a trap door with lock and heavy bolts. Th prison ers were lodged iu the caverns. At day light they were taken up to the work shop where they took their meals, and at 4 o'olook p. m., were returned to the caverns. Each one had a fixed amouut of work to do every day. At first they made wrought uails. Then after 1820, they made slices, wagons, and other arti cles, but the prison did not support itself by convict labor : it drew from the state treasury, ou an averge of $7,000 a yeaiv The convicts generally enjoyed good health no contagious disease had ever occurred here. The caverns ijrete condu cive to health. Thoso aiflicted-tvith cu taneous diseases were ofteu cUied. The temperature wasunil'oi in at all seasons of the year, about 52 degrees. In 1827, the prisoners we're removed to the new prison at Wethersfield on the bonk of the Connecticut river. These facts are taken from the history of New-Gate, by Noah A. Phelps, Hartford, 1845. E.

Democrat, describing Joliet, 111., State penitentiary, says the system of solitary confinement merits some description. At a point within the prison yard, at the extremity of one of the great cell houses and far removed from the noise aud hum of the workshops, is a stone buildiug, iu which are arranged iu two galleries forty; solitary colls. Each is about 10x10 feet iu dimensions aud 15 feet iu the clear. A long horizontal window, perhaps 6 feet in width by eight inches in height, loca ted near the top of the cell, admits light and air. It is sank in the heavy walls, and rarely do the sun's rays penetrate the interior of the tomb-like apartment. The floor of the cell is of stoue, the ceiling is painted white, the walls are a glaring white. The two bits of color in the cell are the black irons of the inner grating and the red wooden bucket iu the corner of the cell. That bucket is the only piece of furniture. The prisoner to be punished is led to one of these cells and handcuffed to the inner grating, his arms being at the natural elevation. A heavy wooden door shots off a view of the corridor. He is alono amidst a silence as profound as the grave. His own voice, should he raise it in protest of his fate, is thrown back to him by the cold, pitiless walls, aud the echo causes him to start. He looks around and nothing meets his eyes but the glistening white walls. At first he does not notice this. Ere long his eves. used to the moving life of the workshop, begin to weary of this monotonous glis tening, blank view. The feeling, at first irksome, becomes paiuful. Ho tries to look at the window above, but it is soar- ranged that he sees nothing but the flood . ot light. 1 he blue sky he remembers on-I ly as a thing of beauty never heeded be- bu e. A glimpse of it now would be a boon inestimabh. He tries to shut his eyes, to relieve them of the glistening, blank impression, but his disordered impression, but his disordered nerves cause strange lights, and an an- noying pnaiuasiuagona oi grotesque anu i . . .. . , ever-changing figures to dauce through l.'s If 1... la , .

The American Farmer gives the fol lowing directions for making a cheap home-make telephone : To make a good and serviceable telephone, good from one farm house to another, only requires enough wire and two cigar boxes. First select your boxes, aud make a hole about half an inch in diameter in the center of the bottom of" each, and then place one iu each of the houses you wish to connect ; then get five pounds of com mon iron stove pipe wire, make a loop at one end and put it through the hole in your cigar box and fasten it with a nail ; then draw it tight to the other box, suppoiting it when necessary with a stout cord.

Constipation. Constipation is the beginning of many diseases. It is the most prev- , 7 M :. e alent of all atftfclions among those not accustomed to oat-door activities. It frequently commences in infancy through the neglect or ignorance of parents ; and the health sometimes becomes permanently impaired before the cause is discovered by the physi- cian. There should be at least oue free aud natural movement of the bowels every day, and when that is not the case, ail proper means should be promptly employed to bring it about. Nature intends that the waste materi al, after digestion is completed, shall bo passed out of the system within a certain time, but if that time is ex ceeded ft commences to be absorbed, thus the blood is poisoned and the vital force is impaired ; hence the body becomes an easy prey to disease. Dvspepsia is generally the first dis eased condition caused by constipation. lhe liver soon becomes involved as a result of indigestion, then the kidneys. It is evident that a long continued derangement of either of these impor tant organs must result most unfortu nately. All experience proves that habitual constipation is a very unsafe condition of the system, and one lia ble at any time to develop incurable d iseases. Various plans have been devised for the cure of this distressing com plaint; but we do not believe in re stricting the treatment to anv one remedy, lo secure success various metyods must be employed, and em- ploped persistently. Some will after a while lose their effect, and others , must be substituted; no quarter should be shown until this great enemy to health is overcome. The habit of ta king purgative medicines to relieve the bowels often increases the trouble; that is. the system becomes accustom ed to this remedy and there is no re lief without it ; the remedy debilitates, i i i . r anu ii uecomes oiny a question oi time how long the treatment can be KaIMIA UUIlit, Dome. - As in this case there is always a torpid liver, we should commence the treatment witn a miiU cathartic as .... two or three liver pills : and then pay especial attention to the diet. Bread made from cm shod wheat or oat meal should be used ; wc should not restrict the patient as to other iood?, except as to quantity. He should eat enough, but not overload the stomach. A tumbler of cold water with a teaspoon- fill of table salt dissolved in it and drank every morning half an hour tvpfhre hrmkfiut often acts like mniric . o - a O ,n restoring the bowels to their natu- i i . ir 'ii i i hi ponu i on. mere are raanv eases - . p H1118til)ation wi the ot obstinate constipation, vheie the whole trouble exists in tne lower part nF .m bv of &1 i v j . ... b er, due to feeble action of the ninscles, and to a congested and dry I nanara Ilia simiuwilnl'V i I .

Regular and vigorous out-door ex- erc8 all imjortant. Kneading the bowels with the hands lias been re commended; alsoy the drinking of water frequently, to which we should always add a little (able salt. The frequent use of a syringe should be avoided, for much the same reason that cathartics ought to be avoided. No harsh or very active treatmeut is required in these cases; but mild rem edies may be employed persistently ; in tact, they should never be rem it tea until the bowels become regular and the health is restored.
