Tl? lk???r Itlk FuUtaneat The Philadelphia Inquirer that describes two incorrigible convict* at present confined in the penitentiary at that city, and the system of punishment which prevails in that institution: The famous criminal hath was then exhibit' ed In a cell at the eastern end of the oorridor appropriated for females, stood something like ? wooden ohimnej vertically against the wall. Closer inspeetion revealed a door in its front, with staple and padlock. This being thrown open, an apartment, jast large enough to contain a human body, was revealed, with one of ka 4 ! . 1a At i. IUO tuuuu pviitfiawu 1/1**11 UIPWIUU 111 too l-op. The door sod sides art hollow, and staffed with woolen to prevent scream* from being heard. When any prisoner beoomes ungovernable, he is escorted to this eeli. The physician, the nurse and the superintendent sand by. The malefactor is forced into the apartment, the door elosed upon him and the staple secured with a heavy padlock. Then, in the darkness and stifling air, the anhappy criminal feels the rui>b of the descending water. It oomes in a torrent upon his uncovered head, and seems to be beating npon his brain. In rain does he f*eek to avoid the draught. He oannot bend in the narrow aperture. He cannot turn. His breath grows short. Every nerve is unstrung. His heart beats agonisingly. He screams, but the walls are deal and there is no repiy. He in suffocating?dvin?. And when unn i? swimming and life flickering, the door is opened, the unhappy man removed and the djiog pulses taught to beat acain. Sometimes the oriminals when removed are black in the face, the blood flooding the head. A man in Sing Sing prison latelj expired under this punishment. The shower bath at Moyameusiog has been use^hree time* in sovon years. Its effects are to^hock the nervous system and weaken the entire body. One woman was lately put to the bath test. She is known as Jenny Lind, and is designated by one of the wardens as the most abandoned woman in the world. She has been in the prison more than a hundred times! chiefly for vagrancy, and is b?jond all reformation She seems at times to be poueesed with a demon. Oa Wednesday last she leaped apon Mr Sargent, the warden of the female department, Hnd tore his month in a most savage manner. The assault was entirely unprovoked. She is said to be very deceptive. She waa placed in the shower bath for an exhibition of heinous wiokedness, and at the end of ten minutes' punishment, asked if she would behave. She said, with an oath, that she would not, and de * manaea 10 oe punisnea again The bath wu again applied?but she was till inoorrigible. When brought forth ngain ehe wu almost lifeless, and bat for the appl cation of prompt restoratives would hare been no longer a trouble to the authorities. We were shown some specimens of her handicraft, in a mass of broken stools, crockery, Ac. She is undoubtedly a dangerous character. Two other women of exceeding bad repute were exhibited. One of them, known as Mag Warner, is the victim of intoxication. Daring the great visitation of the cholera she was like a ministering spirit to the miserable convicts who were diseased. She watched fearlessly and continuously by the couches of the dying, and when worn out with labor would wrap a blanket about her and sleep for long heurs by the oorpsee of the dead. She ex bibiu traces of former beauty, and has not a wicked expression; her cane baa been ruin W hen oar oondactor, in* g-in tie tone, mentioned aome of her shortcomings she burat into taara. 44 I've never been a good woman, air, since my husband died. Thank God! I never tole anything." l alferm ?l the Maryltad Guards, > Haitimere. For aoine time past the members of the five companies of Maryland Guard have had under consideration the subject of a uniform, and lant evening reoeived the report of the Executive Committee, to whom the matter was referred. There is so much good sense in what they say, and with such general application te vrilunt?w?r KMnnillinna ihil fnlInwinrr ??. tract* will doubtless prove interesting. Speaking of their organisation, they conceive it to be the establishment upon a permanent basis of a volunteer ojrpa, recruited from the flower of the youth and manhood of the community, whose ultimate organisat'on should contemplate nothing short cfan entire regiment of ten full companies. It was supposed that the city of Baltimore, with its 230,000 inhabitants, its ancient military reputation, traditions of the battlo field, kept alive by monuments and reunions of its old defenders, and its frontier location, should support at least one solid regiment of 800 or 1.000 well instructed and reliable eitiiea soldiers. One obstacle t? increase in the ranks of oitisen soldiery was the burlUnanm* avnania nnin/? <ai?k an ?? ? wwwvww w?|rwuovj wv^iuutu^ WI?U *u OAII BTO" gant outlay for a uniform, and continued by occasional costly pilgrimages, frequent cm ivial demonstrations, and endleos interchanges of hollow hospitalities. The committee consulted economy al the first principle in the selection of a uniform, and next in the order of importance the quality of serviceableness, and no dress can be so which is not easy and oomfortable to the wearer, and which does not admit of free, rapid and prolonged movement without unnecessary overheating or distress. The committee, therefore, determined to diacard the common unifoim ten in the streets on parade days, and whicb are common to all the old lashioned volunteer oompaniea. The charge of innovation in this particular may be parried by the fcct that whenever any of those companies a %. a ? - - ? - a * - - - nave nsa rest service 10 ao mey nave Dad tbu g *A sense to discard their parade uniform and Kto their duty in an easy fatigue dreaa.

The more detailed, and more trathful aoeoenU. of the reception of thePrioco of Wales at Quebec dissipate much of the eoUur dt rose aspect with wbieh the Jenkins' reporters hare invested it. Here is a specimen : The Prince was dressea in uniform, of which the red coat makes the most impression in a civilian's eye; he spoke first in French, and then repeated his answer in German. This ceremony, which occupied some 15 or 20 minutes, took plsee on the wharf, under a pavilion erected for the occasion; the oannons boomed meanwhile on every hand, and the royal standard of England was raised for the first time on the citadel of Quebec. This is never used except when the sovereign or heir apparent's actual presenoe is intended to bo loaiuaiea or oeieoraiea IB? procession tu formed inmediitely, ud marched through tha principal streets or the town. It was neither long nor brilliant; a few societies, a few citi ens, a guard of honor, the clergy and dignitaries, alone composed it; most of the inhabitants preferred being lookers on, and doubtless the impression thus made on the Prinoe was greater than if they had swelled bis train. Crowds gathered eagerly wherever he passed, bat I saw no other enthusiasm. A few ladies waved their handkeroheifs, and many, but by no means all, of the men raised their hats. Cariosity was muoh more manifest than loyalty in the behavior of the thronr. Thev rushed its near the Prince's carriage as the soldiers permitted, and made noise and oonfusion enough in the narrow streets, and amid the reo^ntly erected shrubbery, but they uttered few or no huzias. Bmquets were sometime* thrown, and one falling at the feet of the young man, he smiled to his companion, the Duke of Newcastle, Eicked It up, and bowed, lie rode in an open arouche, and (ran plainly visible. His person is slight and boyish; his face browned, apparently, by exposure?for his light brown hair and blue eye* indicate a blonde; his Oertnan extraction is quite evident in the general expression of his features?for though his features are rather sharp, their expression is not bright. His mouth is large, his eye alone Sves anj indication of a quickness of idea e impressed me as a person of sluggish tem{terament; such a youth as I should never hare ooked at twice, had he not been Prinoe of Wales. His movements are deliberate, not in the least pompous, but sufficiently dignified; perhaps somewhat stiff. Theretwas not nppa rent toe slightest elevation, such as might have been natural in a lad of eighteen witnessing a whole population thus celebrating his arrival, especially as such honors as these were never paid him in England. His behavior, on the contrary, was absolutely correct, yet I imagine the calmness was not so much the result of breeding as of a phlegmatic disposition. He was not seeluded into decorum by the consideration of the requirements of his exalted position, but untouched by the thoughts, and un excited by the sentiments that wonld seem natural to one in his station. His hands and feet are very large,and although he manifested an awkwardness, neither did ne behave with that winning grace and irresistible princely courtesy that would have won the hearts of his future subjects, and provoked from them plau dits as hearty as their curiosity. Yeuth and amiability were the conspicuous good qualities be betrayed ; beauty, talent, and the natural oharms of demeanor were not apparent. Thc Congressional Aptortionkbnt Uxdbr tub New Census.?The aggregate number of representatives in Congress is not fixed by the Constitution, which simply requires that the number of representatives shall not exceed 1 for every 30.000 inhabitants, and that each State shall have at least 1 representative. The number of representatives, in fact, has varied under different apportionments, but by act of Coneress in 1850 it was fixed at 233, and that will oe the number to oontrol the next apportionment. The present actual number ot representatives is four larger, namely 237, because sinoe the apportionment of 18o0, one additional representative has been allowed to California, two to Minnesota, and one to Oregon. But this temporary increase will cease with the 37th Congress, for which elections are made this fall, and the apportionment under the new census will restore the number to 23.1. The aggregate representative population, as is well known, is ascertained, in the words of the Constitution, "by adding to the whole number of free persons (including those bound to service for a term of years, and excluding Indians not taxed?three-fifths of all other ner sods." In other words, the aggregate population of the whole Union, slaves included, is diminished by a deduction of two-fifths of tho number of slaves. In 1860 the aggregate free population was 19,847.601; the slaves were 3.200.(Ui ; and the representative population was accordingly 21,767,673. This number divided by 223, gave the ratio 93,423. already mentioned. It is generally expected that the I aggregate population under the present censuo will be found to have increased to thirty or thirty-three millions: for the purposes of the apportionment, making the constitutional deduction for slaves, it will not probably exceed 30.000,000. Divuiijy this by 233, we shall have about 128.506 m the ratio for a represen WUTfl Tb* First Metkor.? Vietcs of Profajor Henry.?The Newark Mercury gives the following extract from a private letter written bj Professor Henry:?"The aurora borealis ia undoubtedly an electrical phenomenon, and it is now highly probable that the disturbance of the electrical equilibrium of the earth ia due to a magnetic induction of the ann. From the latest cMervations, it appears that the fres* nanMV A# ik* aw( ? * ? ? i vft wuv xutvi* ao VVVJWI IU i vguiir rucurrences ; and that the period of theae coincide! with that of a similar recurrence of the spots of tha son.

If It be ia reality a large body at a great distance, and we imaginelt a small one, such as, for example, a skyrocket, it will appear at the distanee of the latter. The error arises in applying the habitual judgment of things of wtfleh we hare an abundant experience to those of rare occurrence." How ro Grr Rid or a Trohblisoiib Rbpobtbb.?A representative of one of the morning papers paid an unprofessional visit to Jones's Wood Yesterday afternoon, and taking seat witb other reporters, was soon influenced by the exhilarating liquids to sack a degree that be beoame a source of ^reat an iM'janoe iu nn oumptDion*. id sucn an extent did he try their patience thai, at their reqneet a policeman pat him oataide of the ropos. end they flattered themeelvee with the idoa thai they had rotten rid of him. Greatly to their aorprise aad diegaat, however, he eoon retained, and became more trombieeome than ever. At laet they took him to a bar-room, and having mated themmlvm at a table and ordered drinka, one of the oompany gave the bar-keeper aome instruction*, the reanlt of wbieh waa aoon eeen. . 44 Ilave you heard of that marder in the Twelfth ward, gentlemen?" aeked the barkeeper in aa earneet manner. ike representatives of the prem dropped their glasses in surprise, and all answered 41 No.' " There has been a terrible fight there, gentlemen,n continued the bar-keener. "Three men hare been killed and several dangeroualj hart. A man who saw it just went out of here; he told me of it." The eyes of the half-inebriated reporter were eagerly fastened upon the bar-keeper. " Can job give ua the particulars ?" he inquired. " No; only it was in a bar-room in 125th street, over near the North Hirer, and one of them was named Calhoun."
