A perusal of Dr. Orange's instructive report of this asylum, leaves on the mind a vivid idea of the dangerous beings with whom he has to deal. Looking to the history and character of some of the treacherous and explosive compounds of badness and madness who are confined in it, we think there must be great joy indeed in heaven over one of those sinners that repenteth. Not that they are all equally bad. Dr. Orange points out that under the term “criminal lunatic” two very different classes of persons are comprised. One class consists of those who, having been charged with the commission of some criminal act, have, either while awaiting trial, or when arraigned, or when tried, been found to be insane; the other class consists of those who have been certified to be insane whilst undergoing penal servitude in convict prisons.
