PRISON BRUTALITIES. I The horrors of a German colonial prison have been exposed in the "Koloniale Zeitschrift," by Herr Herfurth, says the Berlin correspondent of the Chronicle." The prisoners at Bethanien, Great Namaqualand, he writes, are treated worse than farmers treat their oxen, and their mortality is certainly higher. In the prison at Keetmans- hoop a friend of Herr Herfurth's Baw thirty to forty native prisoners confined in a cell 10ft. high, 13ft. long, and 12ft. broad, andin another still Bmaller cell were ten women. Children from four to six years old were punished with imprisonment, and maltreated by native policemen. One child of five was in gaol under a long sentence for stealing milk. Prisoners sent out to work on public works were sometimes so weak that they fell dead on the road- side.
