NOTE TO ARTICLE V. ON PRISON DISCIPLINE.

In the citation from Mr. Gray's book on our 181st page,
there is a mistake which is noticed in a short list of correc-
tions prefixed to his volume, but which unluckily escaped
our attention.

About the middle of the extract, instead of
the assertion, that the prisoners at Pentonville" pass an hour
every day in their exercising yards in company,” read “ walk
every day to their exercising yards in company.” We copy
part of the paragraph as it appears in the corrected English
edition of Mr. Gray's volume.

“The prisoners take turns in cleaning the corridors every
morning, which occupies an hour, during which time several are
in company with each other, but under the supervision of an
officer to prevent all intercourse. They likewise walk every day
to their exercising yards in company, but under similar super-
vision and at fifteen feet distance from each other."
