To-day we shall bfgln the publloatlon of ioao'olook edition We shall continue to publish an edition at half-past two o'clock This will give the publio two afternoon editions of the Herald. These editions will contain news to the moment of issue, and can be obtained at the ofRoe, of the newsboys In the streets, at the steamboat landings and railroad depots. The Adjournment or Cotigitu?The New Administration. We published in our regular edition of the Herald yesterday, and in extra sheets during the day, graphic accounts of the closing scenes ot the Thirtieth Congress of the United States, which we received by telegraph from Washington, at a vast outlay of money. They came to this journal exclusively; and so eager were our citizens to learn the result of the last night's proceedings ot that body, that many thousands of our extras were Bold. As, however, our despatches were published as we received them, in parcels, and at different lime*, we nave inuugni 11 ocai iu give iiieiii cu'iiplele in to-day's paper, so that they may be perfectly intelligible to all our readers. Some ot the modems that took place on Saturday night and Sunday morning were more befitting a bear garden than a legislative hall, and reflected disgrace on the members and on the country at large. We wish we could pass them over in silence; but we Consider it our infiltrative duty to record our detestation o the disgraceful personal encounters which took place between Messrs. Johnson, Ficklin, lloot, Giddiugs, and others. We care not who were to blame in those scenes, or who provoked the strifes; the halls of Congress are not places for pugilistic displays or personal encounters between legislators of a great nation like his. As is usual on such occasions, Congress attempted (o ,-erfoim a great deal of business within a united time, in order, if possible, to make up for the vast expenditure of time iu the early part of the session. The consequence was, that a great many bills, of great importance to the country, were not acted upon. After an exciting struggle between the friends and opponents of the measure proposed originally by Mr. Walker, Secn-taty of the Treasury, to make anotker depaitment of the government, to be tilled by an additional cabinet minister, the bill was passed by both houses, and the Hon. John IJaviB, of Massachusetts, was selected by President Taylor to preside over that important office. The bill establishing a branch mint in New York was loot, although i( passed in the House. We are sorry for it; but we trust the subject will be agitatsd again in the next Congress, and adopted. Up to the hour of our going to p ess, we received no account of the adjournment of the Senate; consequently we are as yet n the dark as to the final disposition of the Civil and Diplomatic bill, as amended in the House, and containing a provision for the government of California. Should this bill not have passed I he Senate, it uiiU probably force upon General Taylor the necettily of convening an extra euion of CongtenGeneral Taylor will enter upon his executive duties to-day. lie will De inaugurated about twelve o'clock; and immediately alter the ceremony shall have been concluded, he will send in the names ot the gentlemen who will compose his cabinet, for ratification, to the Senate?an extra session of which has been called for by ex-President Polk, for that puriose The Hon.

This IB a well organized cabinet Each member 1 carries with him considerable moral, political, and personal influence. It appears thutthe new Prest- ( dent would aubmit to no dictation in selecting hia ' constitutional advisers. The Pennsylvaniadelega 1 tion waited upon him, and objected to the appoint- I tnent ot Mr Meredith as Secretary ol the Treasury; but the President informed them that his mind was made upcn.the subject, and it could not be changed. Thia is an evidence ( General Taylor's well known firmness of character, and augura well for the independence with which he will co.iduct hia administration. Great desire ia manifested to learn the tenor of the inaugural address. We shall receive it by telegraph in the course of the day, and issue it to the public immediately after we receive it, in an extra Herald. We were enabled to procure an outline of it early yesterday morning, which we published in part of our edition ol yesterday; but as it did not appear in all, we re-publish it to-day. Fro n this outline, we are led to believe that it will be just auch a document as we expected. It will be a repetition ol the sentiments which pervaded the President's letters and speeches prcvloustothe e lecti? n. He will administer the government on broad national pnnclp'es, for the benefit of the whole country; lie will sanction any ad. justmeut of the slavery question whi ;h will not interfere with the constitutional rights of the Noithern or Boutin rn States, but thinks the question is properly a matter for the decision of the Supreme Court of the United Stttes; the tariff question ha will submit to congress, and will sanction any luooifloat ion which they, as the exponents ol the will of the people on the subject, may make. Then- sentiments, as well as the one concerning the veto power, which he says he will not weaken, but which should not, in his opioion, b? exercised merely in conflicts of opinion between the executive and Congress, as to the expediency or necessity of a measure, but only in pieservation of the constitution?tli se se itunents, as tar as they go, are directly in accordance with what he has heretolore uitered in h:e speeches and letters previous to the election, and we believ* they will give general satisfaction. The new administration will he fairly under way to-morrow. The President aud his cabinet will enter upon their ard ious and import int duties under bright auspices. The country is in a veiy prosperous state. Our relations, foreign and domestic, are satisfactory, with the exception, l>erh?ps, of the slavery question ; but that, we apprehend, will be Bettled iu a manner satisfactory to alt parlies. We are at |>cac* with the whole world; our commerce, foreign and domestic, never was on a better footing ; our people are attached to theirgovernine it and institutions; and the future looks bright. No visible obstacle is in the way t? prevent the United States from becom'ng, if indeed it is not now, the greatest, happiest, and most powerful nat on on the face of the earth. Thk Prisons or Nkw York Statr?The first annual report ot the Inspectors, to ttie Senate of NewYoik, ih now before us. We derive some useful information from this report, in relation to prison discipline. It ap,tea's that the cat-o'-niaetails had been in cooBtent u*e in our prisons until prohibited by the act ol the Legislature ot Dec. 14th, 1847. This prohibit on ot inflicting any blows upon convicts, bv way of punishment, created quite a panic among all the officers and authorities of every prison and jail, throughout the State. It was pronounced to be a dangerous experiment.? The following interesting passage from the report before us, seems, we think, satisfactorily to settle the question:? The Inspectors of State prisons entered upon their duties with a determination to give a mild i>y*inm of diaolpiine, without the intliotioa of blows. a fuil and lair trial. To this they worn not ouljr olsj >??d by motives of humanity, but impelled by the uavqinvooal voiee of pub.io opinion, and bound by the prouibi ory clause ot the law beiore referred to rnougb entering upon the "experiment" with --anew sot of offl tors" in charge of the prisons, they rejoice to b* able to eay, niter the experience ot one ye.r tb it it has proved entirely successful Llisabedieuoe ,iud disorder hsve not tssuited fiom ibe discontinuance ot the u*e ot the oat. Lashes are nat necessary to the good government of our piiaons It is believed tost in neither of our d'.ate piieons has the discipline been related, but, oi toe contrary, exhibits an evident improvement Vino la bor more cheertully. petform a greater am >uot of m irk lees frequently violare the rulee. and b-c nor inor h imanlsed, rather than brutalised. iu th-ir feelings, <voiie the necersity for inflicting puul-bicnut at all oeo noes greatly diminished At sing S'ng prison during tie months of l a unary to No ve m b r, loo more, of toe pre sent year, the total number of punishment* wis .'lit iluring tbe same months or 1847 ft ?a* 733; showing a diminution ot 881 ? eoneid-rably over one ba f.

We oao hod no records of previous yesre with wh oh to make a o iraparisoa it is not to be supposed, by ths above, that no punishments are inflicted; on the contrary, there has been a substitution of other means ol discipline. We learn that these consist of deprivation ol food, the shower ba *', the yoke, the stocks, and sulita y confinement; and from all accounts, the effects of th's new system are ol the happiest kind. The following statement is tuiereaiiHg ; and the slowness ol the Iuspectors tn presuming that it is to be attributed to improved morality, is, we tluuk, both just and commendable : ?

The teachers' and ch*pla:ns'reports, collected in this annual report, present little winch calls for special notice or admiration. A report by the teachers ot the Aubuin prison has the following:? It Is quite as true rf convicts as of children, that ' Ss'uu Audi t >i?u otMilial, sltU, t?l id Is lisudstu aa." But this It not tbe gr?a est sell resulting from the want of proper mens) suiptoyaieai Their Iwaaiaatioas are llkaly to dwell upon *c? net o* former dtuination aud sensual mdnigenee The passions are esoit-d. and. as a eonsequvucM a efee is indulged la whioh is eminent I; tbe eurse of the prlsen. ruins the health, r-nd-rt them oallons te moral InOuenaes, and degrades ibem below " tbe brntee that perish " There is nomething frightlnl and horrible in the above. What a picture ot man ! And let us not forget that these unhappy creatures?we might say, viewing the crimes they embody, th-s? monsters and beasts?are our nrethren, our own ilesh and blood?men ot like passions and fettling* with ourselves. The teacher, however, in the above report, seems to jump upon a false conclusion, in sa> ing? " resulting from want of inenttl e nployment." We brlievs that active bodily employment is at all times better tor mm tliau " mental employment" of any hind, especially hodge podge reading, which is only another terra for " evil employment. " Upon the whole, numerous as are th? documents bound up in this gigantic report, it presents nothing indicative of the mind or genius of John Howard, in the re|>orters. In many of its features, this report is unsatisfactory, and, in the whple, it is somewhat obscure. It is hardly possible to arrive at much, i( any, knowledge of the rattona.lt of our prison institutions by aid of this annual report, because it is, in fact, an immense bundle ot miscellaneous accounts and of minute money disbursements, at the severs' prisons, for refreshments, eoau, pants, paint, oil, beef, pork, bread, butter, cheese, potatoaa, mutton, hams, pepper, Ac. Ac. We should have thought our Legislature would have appointed proper officers to audit these sixpenny accounts, big and 1 tile, so as to render it unnecessary to print, at the public expense, long lists ot family and domestic ex,?nditures, swelling Dut into a thick octavo volume, as large as two or three ordinary Bibles bound up .together. Very ittlr useful information ia to be gleaned from these ;ash accounts, and few, we apprehend, who read I hem, will be able to ascertain their correctness j rhis report, which, by the bye, is the first report jj the Inspectors appointed under the act of 1M7, :onsis(t ot various accounts, documents, reports ! tnd papers collected together f'om the several . prisons ol the biaie. Tins appears very much ike leaving it to t: e olliccrs of each prison to send in their own accounts and reports, to be published by the ine|ieclor?, and would appear to render the turn " iup|m otore," under such circumstances, something ot a misnomer, /erhaps, as thti is a liret e*rny iinii.r the new law, our remarks limy he rather too severe. We coa'esH, the infj'ciirs msy have seen more than they have it potted, and may have red oted more than they h?ve wuiten. Hut we do think tha', tu future, a plain, sober, somniou se|)M. account ot me prisons, i c>i much louger th ui once or twice the I'resi* Crut's it.*ssnge, might com" ne all the *mrd and .statistic information necessary, and contain nil the Miggi slii.ris and aiiuiindvertmuia which the circniiistaiiei s might require.

At thla dlaplay of kind-hearted ntss, the poor womn wu nearly overcome with gratltada. She looked the thank* ehe could not speak, so a* to be understood; her large Italian eye* were suffused with tears, and she hugged her limbless babe to her heart almost convulsively, as if she would say' Poor thing, we hare at last found fellow mortals who oan sympathise with us in our distress " One of the females present would hare lettered the mother of her ohild, so that she might the better employ her hand* In the use of a knife and fork; but maternal feeling was powerful, and the woman would not let her ootid go into the hands of strangers, eren though they had prered themeelees to be her bena'astors. She looked up in thankfulness, but retained her hold upon the Infant, which she alternately pressed olosely to her bosom, and kissed passionately upon the obeek. She finally finished her meal, and depositing the money that she had received In a handkerchief, and taking the bundle of olotbes wbloh had been glsea her. under her arm, she looked up deroutly, and tben nest her ejes upon ail the ladies in turn Tbey understood it as well as if she hud ssid in good Knglish, "Heaven bieesyon all, kind friends!" They felt that they had done a good act; that tbey helped to smoothe the rugged path of one of their sex, who unquestionably needed assistance Bless tbelr generous hearts! it is refreshing to meet with suoh instances of unostenta tious charity. They were glad the poor woman had oome to their apartment. They would, without doubt, sleep better alter their benevolent aot. The Italian was going out, but was met at the door, before she had left the room, by an Irish servant girl, who, having heard of the poor woman, came In to see her and tke baby without arms or feet As Bridget entered the room, she looked indignant and mischievous, and shutting the door, she pleated herself with her back firmly against It, and lookiog at the woman and child, she said:? " O ! missus, Is this the poor orature wld the babee, that has natbur arms ur legs till it ?"

" Yes, Bridget," rays the mistress, ' but she is just going now You should have come up before If you wanted to see them. The poor woman is just leaving; don't stand against the door " " If je plaise ma'am, 1 want to see the little one, just for a mlrnit It ud be rich a strange sight like; wideut the arms or fret ov it " >( The w omen reems to be tender hearted. Biddy," interposed the mistress, " and she has already been weeping at the sight of her own poor deformed ohild. You can see its laos; 1 would not distress the mother any furthei." " But, begging yer pardon, missus, I think I knows the tricks ov this one and the likes ov her. Its deoearlng ye she's been " Saying this. Bridget darted at the woman and seised the ohili from her arms, and In an Instant had divested it of its outer garments, when it was discovered that the poor ohild was Indeed nn object of pity It was neither wanting in legs nor arms, but had the full complement of both. The legs were olcsely strapped up, and bandaged In suoh a nianuer as to cause tbe appearaco* of an entire want of limbs at the lower part of the trunk, while tbe arms were struppe.d down oloee to the body. The ohild had pro DsDiy IX'D put id tneee Da nils soon HtC<r Its birth, and had becom* so aocustomed to them that it did not f?el any inconvenience from the banda -leg The servant girl bad heard of tbie kind of impo?ltion, and wan suiisfled of the character of the woman before she made the dieoloeure. But 1' wan now her turn to hare her heart softened. and she eould hardly keep the big team from making a race oouree of her cheek", when the looked at the poor child in lte forlorn ooudition. She wan on the point of giving tray to h?r feelings, when ind'gnation took the place of pity, and Bhe satisfi.s h> reel' by administering a well dsstrvt-d rebuke to the Italian wcman. whom, ahe declared, understood terry word of it. The ladies eontented themselves with (U-olsrltg that rho deserved to b? sent to th?

They bid her fO and nev?r to appear in that neighboihood again, ULdir penalty of lelig sent to the pclioe olhoe.

A SiNfiui a* and Horrid Arrata ?The Coroner Was called to hold an inquest, yesterday, on the body of J< bn Riley a boy of seven yesrs of age, born in New Y< rk, who came to hie death under the following horrid eirenire'asnee:?It appears from the faots before the Coroner, that the child was playing, on the 221 day of August last.

The little boy then said to his slater. ' I'll go and get some more sugar," meaning sand, which they called sugar, with wUloh thvy were playing. The deceased left, but never returned. An alarm was given, and eearoh made In all quarters, to find the boy; but all to no purpose. Days passed on, and weeks passed over, and yet no tidings ef their lost child. Advertisements were published in all the paper*. the father went to Canada In search of his child, bavlrg beard a rumor that a toy of that desoription bed been seen there He next heard of a boy bring found in Philadelphia, and posted off there, where he eaw the boy, who was much like his oblld, but, much to his sorrow, was not his own. On his return home, the mother of the lost child would not be satisfied until she went to Philadelphia and examined the boy that was supposed to be her own However, she returned like her husband with a besrt full of grief at tbe ead and mysterious disappearance of their poer oblld; the supposition was, that some one bad kidnapsed the ohild beyond a doubt end thus the whole matter remained a mystery, until Friday last, some laborers were removing some sand from a bank within 70 feet of Mr. Riley'e house, and to their great surprise, on removing the eand, tbe body of this poor child was dlroovsred ; the flesh was nearly all rotted off his bones, but the clothing was sufficiently preaerved to enable the parents to identify tbe bidy to be tbe remain* of their lost oblld. Itasems tba' the ohild wss in the hsbit of running to this eand bank for sand to play with, whls.i they called sugtr, and on one of ih?ee errands the sand bank caved in. and euffooated th? decared underneath.
