I be W AiaiSfiToji AqUBDUt t ?Congress now . filly organised and ready for business, it a important that something should speedily he done in the way of an early appropriation ficiency bill, fer the continuation of the piAlic works now aommenoed. Among all these works none is of such importance not only to our own city but to the Govern ment at large, as that of the water works commenced at the Great Falls a few years 'J**5? u ? national matter, and should be treated and fuetered as such. The writer of the communication flitters himself that he is somewhat of a connoisseur in mat ters of tkus kind, and fecliug anxious to ex amine the route and its LtoaUon, undertook to ufce a short trip (or the puxpoee of judging of lt? merit* and its practicabilities. After pre paring himself with the proper d&U and the estimated cost of the improvement, he started down the line, commencing at the Great Falls, from whence the water is to be supplied and passed along the whole survey to Georgetown, a distance of some fourteen miles, and he was well repaid for his task by the information which he gleaned from his personal examina tion It is, indeed, a magnificent undertaking, and well worthy of our great and glorious re public ; and not only reflects much credit on the liberality of Congress, but also the high est honor on Captain Meigs, the superintend ent and originator of its location and the eco nomical design of it? construction. The work has progressed rapidly under Capt. Meigs, assisted by several corps of en giueers under the command of Capt. Wm II, Bryan, principal engineer, whose qualifica tions and industry has betn proverbial through out the country for the past twenty years. Under his active and energetic direction every thing goes like clockwork and it is astonish ing what a large amount of work has been done for the ameunt of money which had been appropriated If tne ignorant oroakers and disappointed opponents of this great national undertaking would take the trouble of examining into the location, and were capable of iudging of its true merits without tne mote id their jaun diced eyes, they would at once confers that all the other plans hitherto advanced would sink into utter insignificance when compared with this of Captain Meigs, both as to utility and the strictest economv. The fact is, Capt. Meigs will not only be able to bring the watei into Washington (provided Congress appro priates early in the session) in tne course ol two years from this time, but he will be able to do it at a less sum than what his original estimate called for. In his report to Congress last session, he stated that he would pledge his official character that he would be able to supply the city with a sufficiency of water, at a certain specified time, and at a cost not ex ceeding 52.300,000. From long experience in such matters, and from a careful and thorough calculation oi the work already done and the amount yet tc be done, the author of this article has nn doubt whatever that Capt Meigs will not only make good his pledges, but that ho will accomplish his undertaking at a cost consid erably less than his estimates. Let Congress but be prompt and liberal in an early appropriation, so that advantage may be taken of progressing with the work on the opening of spring, and continuing such ap propriations h? may be needed, and my word fni it the work will be accomplished at the time proposed, and Washington city will have s sufficient supply of wholesome water to fur nish the wauta of a population of one million of people, and the uovernment of the United States will be ablo to boaat of a national work of art and science such aa the world never saw or heard of before.

N?w Yoax, Feb. 29,1858. Advertising has become so intimately inter* woven with our social habits that it is now sc customary to advertise for wives aod husbandi as to excite do surprise. The followiog, from tome impulsive youth, appeared this morn ing: "I want a wife. Who will accept' Address Aoxions," Ac. It would excite no wonder if some one advertised " A wife to sell, exchange, or mortgage." The weather at this season Is so precarious that it is not safe to give an opinion upon it. Yesterday we were congratulating ourselves upon the prospect of an early spring ; to-day it snows as it did a month ago. The " oldest inhabitant'' is sorely puxzled about it. In fact, that mythical indvidual has lost much preftige the present season The light of the " Live Oak Clubs'' has be come extinguished since tho nomination of Fillmore for the Presidency. They are now being changed into "National American As sociations." The New Yorkerf appear to be in great trouble at this moment, about a proper name for the great central park. It would be an act of oharity if some friendly city would come to the rescue Some are for calling it "Croton Park," but the objection to this is that we are already deluged with croton. Some propose ''Manhattan/' but that is the name of the island. One or two have been courageous enough to suggest *- Hiawatha," while not a few are under the impression that a better name cannot be given it than " Higbfalutin." .Navigation waa resumed upon Long Island Jtasnd, yesterday, after a closure of some w%eks, by tho steamer " Elm City," which, after battling her way for twelve hours, finally succeeded in reaching New Haven, Connecti cut. It is reported that she forced her way, in some plates, through ice ten feet in thick Dew. If this is the case, it could not have beeo very solid. After the *? Elm City" had opened a passage, a propeller from Provi dence, Khoie Island, reached our city. Nav igation on the Sound, may, therefore, be said to be oj?en for the season. The Hudson must soon clear itself of ice, if the present thaw lasts, a.? it drains a large extent of country, and ri*es io heavy floods by a small iocrease in its various tributaries. Large forces of men are employed, daily in clearing away the ice, snow, and refuse matter from the streets. The Broadway merchants took the initiatory in the movementby pajing for the removal of the matter in front of their ?tores, whereupon the Corporation took the hint, and vigorously attacked Broadway and Chathflm street. It is Mtimated that the cleaning of Broadway, alone, wiil oost ?ft,000. The city Railroad companies have done much in keeping the streets through which their lines passes, unobstructed. By the weekly statement of the Board of Ten Governors, it appears that the number of inmates of the different institutions is ft,627.

The number of families receiving temporary relief, 1,450, the number of fami lies receiving foel wa> 16,249. A resolution was adopted calling up?n the superintendent of the oat door poor, to suspend out-door re lief after the 15th of March, if practicable. TacrxtEH.

The Newport Mercury states that two geese were dug out of the snow drift in that town a few days since, which had been with out food 42 days. They were very thin of flesh, but quite lively. . The Merrimsc is highly complimented by the New England press. '-Her commander, Capt. Pendergrast," _ says the Portsmouth Gazette, "is an experienced and efficient offi cer, his subordinates gentlemanly and prompt, and his gallant crew consists of as fine speci mens of the Yankee tar as ever drew a ram mer or wielded a cutlass " The property left bv the old lady re cently deceased in Newton, N. H., is apprais ed at $38,419 47; not so much by one naif as was expected. She had 192 sheets, 3 cover lids, 50 blankets, 27 beds, 1200 lbs. feathers, 54 table covers, and 43 handkerchiefs, while the whole amount of her wearing apparel did not exceed ten dollars in value.
