Court begun and holden at Burlington within and for tho county of Chittenden, on the la.-t Tuesday save one of Augtiot, A. D. 1838: Tho Grand Jurors within nnd for the body of tho cotiniy ol' Chittenden aforesaid, represent to rVie Court, that they have vi-i leu and examined the Common Jail in Burlington, nnd regret to find that it yet remains iho (subject of the same cnmpliiiut which has been made by tho Grand Jurors for some years past. Though kept ns well as ought to bo ex pected, considering its bad construction and dilapidated stale, it is, nevertheless, offensive mid unwholesome. Thu Grnnd Jurors would particularly present to the Cuurt the fad, that thorn ore no separate apartments lor mate and female inmates of tho prison. The rooms originally dusigned for Ihe detention of criminals und those charged with crime, are so dark, damp and (tinker ous to health, that it has been found neces sary at times, lo put such into tho debtors npartnient, thus placing tho unfortunate, tho accused, und tho guilty in immediate association, while confined under the au thority of llio law, Thu state of the prisons in any country, is justly considered a criterion, hy which to judge of llio humanity anil advance in civilization of tho peoplo; but presenting as this Jail does, a melancholy exception to tho evidences of thu progress of civili zation around it, wo might well dread a Judgment rounded upon such criterion here. Prom tho present stnto of public opinion, wo aro happy in fooling assured, that tho barbarous custom of imprisoning for dobt, will bo speedily dono away, nnd no place of confinement bo required for tho honest debtor; and for those accused of crime, or even those convicleil of crime, wo cannot perceive tho propriety of adding to tho horrors of a c.totc and solitary cell, tho darkness, llic dampness, and impurity of a iTOMD. Humanity os wpll tn tho certain cxecu lion of criminal justice) in llio county, call loudly fur a remedy, and hi thu opinion til iho Grand Jurors, llicru is but one tu bo fnuntl, nnd that is, in tho erection of n NEVV JAIL, on nn entirely difTurcnt plan.
