The city jail.

--We learn that his Honor the Mayor has announced this edifice as being full. The chance for an eligible situation by any intending malefactor is small. Yesterday, by order of Brig.- Gen. Windel, a detachment from Elliott's City Battalion proceeded to the jail to perform guard duty. Not only the jail, but the State penitentiary is full. The Governor has recommended the sale of all the negro convicts who could legally be disposed of, on the ground that when sent out from the institution to work they were nuisances.
