' ? in a WASHINGTON NEWS AND OOSSir. The Bestruction of the Long Bridge ? Tho reader is referred to the Star t local col umns for full particulars of thia catastrophe At 10 a m. to-day, not more than some two boa J red ttet of the structure had gone Tho ice then was pilod so high against the portiona adoining tho opon apace, as to render it next to certain that bj nightfall the pressure of its rspid accumulation will aweep awaj aa much more of it. We aoe nothing in tha appear ance of tha frashat of io? which is likely to del ij tha regular trips of the steamboats between Washington and Alexandria more than forty-eight houra When thej again oommence, the public disability in thia connec tion will, for the moat part, be removed. That is, so far as the transportion of tha mails is concerned and the travel on tha great North ern and Southern mail route The market gardeners living on the Virginia aide within three miles of the Long Bridge, will be incom moded to the extent of having to reach thia city by traveling a few miles further-that is, if a tempory ferry be not immediately opened at the bridge, aa before by aome enterprising man. Apprtpos.?Mr Hives, the civil engineer charged with the duty of preparing plans and' estimates for new bridges at the various points that have been suggested?at the Long bridge site, the Observatory point, on the piers of the Aqueduct, and at the Three Sisters?is said to have sent his report three days ago to tha Secretary of the Interior. Wa hear incident ally that his recommendation is in favor of a briJgefor horse vehicles and foot passengers at the Long bridge, with a bridge to accom modate a railroad, as the Aqueduct, on the present Aqueduct piers. According to his es timates, it will not cost more to build both these proposed structures than to build a bridge that will accommodate a railroad at the tite of the Long bridge. He is said further to report that while the railroad bridge at the Long bridge >ite will require ten years for its construction, both the other structures whioh he recommends can be built in three years. We presume that the .Secretary of the Inte rior wi;I at once rend in to Congress his report, and trust that ere the session ends this whole vexed and vexatious question will be dispo sed of. Concert for the Poor.?Some of the pro gramme? for the forthcoming fine concert to take place next Monday, the lrtth instant, have already been distributed, and we now refer our readers to another oolumn for its details. Wo regret, however, to find Mrs. Cecilia \ oung'a name not mentioned in it, and as we had previously intimated that she had volun teered her services for the occasion, wa were surprised to learn that, on the contrary, her terms were not such as the gentlemen who have the matter in hand felt justified in ac. cepting, their object being to render tha oon cert attractive, but at the same time as lucra tive as possible. While it ia to be regretted that her place has not been filled by any of our fair vocalists, we must speak in the highest terms of the excellence of the programme? every piece having been selected with a view to render the concert in every way worthy of the occasion, and of the full appreciation of our musical and benevolent pnblic. At all events it will be a variety, and different from the concerts whioh we have laUly enjoyer; and though it will only consist of our own local talent, yet we prediot for it an excellence in all its parts that will giro it a name and tone in no way inferior to any of the most popular concerts of tho famous Uermania So ciety. We are sure of its lull success. The South Caroline Committee.?Tha corti m.ttee from the congressional district of the late Hon Preston S Brooks, who have come to Washington to accompany the remains to taair final resting place in South Carolina, consists of some twenty fiTe gentlemen, most of them young. We never saw a body of The Sitae number, apparently more intelligent and substantial men. A look at them explains why it is that their State neverfailato respect hersel', and to guard her rights with jealoua care in connection with public affaire Senator Toombs'i Plan.-The following statement, which we extract from a late num ber df the Cinoinnati Enquirer, tells the tale of the necessity for such legislation on the part of Southern States as was anggested in the memorable letter from Senator Toombs to the recent Savannah Convention So long as the South is willing, stupidly, to continue to surrender what should be her own legitimate profits from her superior advantages, she almost deserves the retarn in the hourly increasing intensity and prevalence of aboli tionism, which she ia reaping A single South ern Legislature has but to make the move on a well matured plan?say South Carolina-to have all her sister Southern States carrying out the same policy within five years. The reader will perceive that the facts set forth in the extract to which we refer are sach as to justify a very different tone towards the eootb, from the North, than that which pervades tie Northern pnblio mind, if the Northern opp,. am n press affords a fair criterion on whieh to base ajudgment in the premises: th. ??cord,n? t.oth? r?P?rt of the Secretary of the Treasury, the export of Southern products for the year I&06 amount to *153 583 095. ?? *r* oarri?d abroad chiefly in ships which are made and owned at the Norit Ii is estimated that the freight on these pro ducts will amount to 511 000 000 Now tfiese exports are paid for in imports, whioh are re ceived in the proportion of twenty dollars in the Northern cities to one dollar ia the South Of these ?mporta the South is the principal oonsumer. The Northern jobber or distributer buya from the importer, paying him, of course, his profits and the interest for a credit of four and six montha The jobber, in turn, sella to *">thern merchant, receives his super added profit and interest for eight or twelve months.

It is known to be one of iho?e transparent falsehoods set on foot by Central Amerioan diddlers without character, and coined only to avert punishment for their crimes and to feed Bennett's rabid hatred of the President and everybody*associated with him. The wonder is, that Bennett does not charge ILe President with tho murder of Dr. Bard ell The Wagon Road -The bill for the con. dtructioo of a wagon road from Missouri to California, via Salt Lake Valley and the South Pas a of the Rocky Mountains, with a branch road to the north on this side, and a separate road from New Mtxioo to California, crossing further south, duly passed the iiouso this morning.

The bills making an appropriation for com pleting the capitol building in the Territory of New Mexico, and for the construction of a road in the Territory of Nebraska, were then severally read a third time and passed. The House then took up the bill for the con struction of a wagon road from the South pa?s of the Rocky mountains, via Salt Lake valley, to Honey Lake valley, on the eastern portion of California, when the substitute adopted in committee wa<? agreed to, and the bill, as thus amended, read a third time bi^e question Leiug on the passage of the Mr. (Jrow demanded the previous question ; vhioh was seconded.

Mr Trumbull objected to permitting Mr. Fitch to be sworu in, and preseuted proceed ings ot the benate of Indiana, protesting against the legality of the election of Mr. ritoh The credentials and protest having been read? Mr. Douglas suggested that Mr. F. should be sworn in according to custom heretofore followed in cases of such contests, and that the protest should be referred to the Judiciary Committee.

The testimony given on Friday before the ooroner a jury, showed that there had been frequent quarrels between Mrs. Cunningham and Dr Burdell; that the latter, on the very day of the murder, as well as at other times, had expressed serious apprehensions for his life; said be did not understand tie move ments of several of the inmates of the bouse* who n>P??red to have some design upon him ; that he had been threatened by Mrs Cun ningham, ?t; , 4<j ; and that he wanted wit ness (Alvah lilaisdell, who was formerly con nected with him in business,) to come and itay with him that night, the night of the murder, and remain with him till 1st of May, and then take the house with bim, as he Blaisdell, bad formerly done.

At an early hour yesterday morning the heavy body of ice on the river began to show unmistakable evidences of a general breaking up, and very soon the entire length of our Water street was all bustle and confusion? our merchants proparing tor the worst by re moving everything in the shape of perishable merchandise from the cellars and lower stories of their warehouses About two o'clock it gave way with a general crash and oommenced tunning rapidly out. The scene, all the af ternoon, was peculiarly grand, and thousands of our citizens resorted to the various points commanding a view of the river to witness the sublime natural panorama, in the neighbor hood of the Little Falls, we learn, the canal is completely submerged, and the bridge over the canal leading to the Little Falls bridge h%8 been swept away. The low portions of the flour mill of W. H Kdes, near the same looality, has also been submerged and a small amount of flour ruined. The came gentleman also had a canal boat, which he kept for the purpose of plying between his mill and our city, sunk in the liver. The above, except some damage to our wharves, is the only damage which has been done, so far a* we are informed. The water this morning is at about its usual height, and the main body of the ice seems to have passed by us. We learn that H. Addison, Esq., was again nominate! on Saturday night by the Know Nothings and their sympathizers as their can

didate for Mayor. Tho Georgetown correspondent of the Balti imoro Sun, speaking of the coming election, says: ?'It is supposed that the Metropolitan rail road question will form the great issue." This is an error. No such issue will be before the people at the coming election. The only question whio'n will divide the two parties (as was the case last election) will be Know Noth iogism or anti-Know Nothingism. S.
