THE PRISON CONGRESS IN LONDON. To-morrow evening the Earl of Carnarvon will deliver the opening address, before tho International Congress, on the "Repression of Crime (including Penal and Reforma- tory Treatment)," in the Dining-hall of the Middle Teniplo. The Congress will be principally composed of two classes of delegates, namely, official members designated by Governments, and non-ofticial members invited by the National Committee of each particular country, on account of their special knowledge of. or 'interest in, the subjects to be considered. The Congress will t;it daily, except Sundays, rt eleven, and will conclude on July 13. The proceedings aie freed to take place partly in. sections and partly in full meeting, the latter to be held every third day. The United States Government, from whom the proposal to hold such a con- gress emanates, have named twenty commissioners, ninny of whom have already arrived. Among the commissioners from the Continental countries are Count Sollahub from Russia, Iriivy Councillor Steinmann from Germany, the Director- General of Prisons from Sweden, H:non Mackay, from Holland, and M. Stevens, Inspector- General of Prisons in Belgium. The Assembly in Versailles appointed a commission of fiftton of its members in March last, which has been sitting re- gularly since. Several of these menibei-s ui-o expected to be in attendance. Judge Leavitt, of the United States, Governor Haines, the Hon. Mr. Chandler, and others of the American Commissioners have arrived. All the continental Governmients have prepared accounts of their prison systems^' and many of these have been printed in large numbers, for the use of the members. The United States Government has, we believe, sent over 2.0UO of its re- ports, 5,000 having been printed at the) nations.l erip-mse. The first class of papers to be considered will involve dis- cussions on Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, and Preventive Police," including such questions as o.\tradi- tion, the length of sentences, the desirability of abolishing eortain punishments, &c., &c. The second class of subjects will relate solely to the punishments of old and youag offenders, and the third, the treatment of discharged prisoners, is a matter that will involve contro- versy on Refuges, emigration, and aid to discharged convicts. The Congress will also consider Penitentiary Systems," their general advantages, and the benefit or evil arising from the cellular," separate," and other schemes. On one of the evenings during the meeting an address will be delivered on The Life and Labours of John Howard," the speaker being the Rev. Dr. Bellows, of New York.
