4The fii Rt copper mines opened iu the
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,

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

In 1781 Congress proposed to make

British prisoners of war, but this was not
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

temperature wasunil'oi in at all seasons
of the year, about 52 degrees. In 1827,

prison at Wethersfield on the bonk of the
Connecticut river. These facts are taken

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

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. You can

Constipation is the beginning of
many diseases. It is the most prev-
, 7 M :. e

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-
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
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,

The frequent use of a syringe should

that cathartics ought to be avoided.
No harsh or very active treatmeut is
