Female prisoners taking an Airing.

--Mrs. Mary Hartung, contined in the Albany jail awaiting execution for the murder of her husband, walked leisurely out of the prison, in company with another female prisoner, on Sunday, and after promenading the city and calling on several friends they returned to their old quarters again. The jailor had accidentally left a door unlocked, and, wishing to breathe the fresh air, they improved the opportunity. The whole city police force were in search of the fugitives several hours, and in passing the prisoners failed to recognize them. The jailor was about to offer a reward of one hundred dollars for their capture, when Mary came along. She said it was going to rain and they didn't want to get wet.--Albany paper.
