Sej moor, the (Jowmraeni engin'?rcf the aqueduct, in his reply to tbe resolution of be Uiiy Councils asking hisopin iod as 10 the most feasible plan for cleaning and improving the Washington canal, says: In my opinUn there are two Indispensable elements nec?esary to th* successful worki g of any plan lor cleansing the caral that may be adopted. First. That the water should neAerbe allowed to flow In but one direction thiong b the canal, or any portien of i', that may he set apurt exclusively for sewerage pur poses. Second. Thatasnfflcientbodyof water, v itb an adequate head, shonld at all times be at ciramaLd lor tbe jpurpose of flushing or swnf hing ont the sewer during periods of low tides in the Potomac. From the month of the canal near th? foot ot 15th street west to the bend between O b iad 7ib streets west, the canal is stra'ght, and is about 150 feet in width. Fiom that point to tbe interaction with Ud street west, and also w itli Tiber or eh, it is notso wide, and there aro two changes in direction of ninety degrees each, as shown on tbe map. The original bo'tom of the canal through its enti'f length is supposed to be below tho level of tbe lowest wat*r in the Potomac river. Tbe rise and fall of tides in the Potomac are affi nit d to be about four feet. * By walling in such width of the canal, say twentv-flveor thirty feet, as may be necessary lor tbe discharge ot the sewerage and drainage of tbe city tributary to this portion ot the canal, including the wate'rs of Tiber cree*; and con strut ting a tight dam at the upper or easterly end: and one or more flood-gates, opening out wardly at tbe westerly end, near the entrance into the river, we would certainly prevent the irflnz of the Potomac dnring high water, and consequently tbe flow of any water through tbe sewer in an easterly direction, while at tbe same time it would be allowed tj tlow Ireely in theopposi e direction, whenever the interval exceed?d the external pressure upon the flood-gates at the lower or westerly end, tbns complying with the first essential requisition abo>e referred to. Bv ?onstructing a lilt-lock and dam across the'lower or westerly end of tbe remaining portion of tbe < anal, and inserting therein flood-gates opening inwardly from the Poto n ac, this portion will ecome filled with Po tomac water to the level of high tide, which will be held there when the tide recedes, by mean* of the self-regulating process of the Hocd-gates, by which ihey opeu and close in response to the preponderance of pressure on tithtr side By this means we obtain a large supply of water lor flushing purposes, to which will be added the natural llow irom Tibt-r creek, and, If necessary. any amonnt that may be required lroro tbe Washington Aqueduct. It is proposed to discbarge this water into tbe npp*r or easterly end of the sew?r, at times ot low water in the Potomac, by means of ml\? ga es inserted either iu the drawer or dividing-wall, or bo h, and thus under a head of lour feet to cleanse the sewer whenever cir cumstances may render it necessary, tbns com plying with th? second essential requisition at ove reletr< d to 1 have no <*oubttbat the same theory can be euectss-lnlly applied to the entire canal in a mui h more simple form, in case It is deemed resirable to preserve its present dimensions for commercial or olber purposes. Assuming ihat the bottom issueli asto allow the waier to flow tre'ely at ail stages through the entire canal, between tbe main and eastern branches ol the Potomac river, as originally dt signed, there should be constructed a lock, with a lift equal to the rise and fall ol tbe tide, at each end of tbe canal, so as to allow the iu gr? ss and egTess ol vessels. In or near one of the<e locks should be In serted flood-gates, opening inwardly from the Potomac, so as to fill the canal to the level of high water; nud at the other end ot tbe canal either flood-gates or valve-gates should be so a ranged in the locks as to discharge tbe water frtm tbe canal into the river at low tide?, as often as necessary, for tbe purpose of purifi cation. In this way tbe current of tbe water j a-sing through tbe canal would always be in tbe same direction: and, if necessary, tbe entire chi al could be flatbed oui at every low tide. Whenever this was not necessary, it could be kfpt lull of pure Potomac wat? rr-o the level of high tide, which would add greatly to its bealtbiulness as well as usefulness. Referring again to the proposed plan of im proving that portion of the canal between 3d and 14th streets west, which is by far the most d> sirable reShlt to be accomplished at tiie pretent time, I would say that there appears to be no objection to reducing the width in the manrer proposed by the bill introduced in Common Council February 1, 661, provided ibepioposed rednced width will afford suffi cient room for commi rciftlpurpcee, and storage capacity for tbe purpose of Hushing out the sewer when ne^es-sary. In that event, the por tion sei apart for a sewer should be so located tbat the southern wall of the sewer wonld form tbe noitbejn boundary ol tbe canal when ra ti uctd in width. The 6ewer should also be arc bed over, and tbe present northern boundary filled iu with the material excavated from the bottom of the canal. The city would thus reclaim a width ot from seventy-five to one hundred fe. t along tbe entire length of this portion of tbe canal, which being located as it le, hi the hear: of the ci'y, could certainly be rented for an amount sufficient to mak~ tbe Improvement, and also to create a sinking fund that would in a short time repay the principal. Tbe other coi siderajions that should urge forward this Improvement in tbe shortest pos sible time are too apparent to every ont? to re quire a reference here. The same considerations should, in my opin ion, apply with equal force in favor of arching over the channel of Tiber creek, from its junc ion with the canal, at least as high up as New Jersty avenue, and If this matter should ba undertaken in good faith by the city, there can be no doubt tbat the general Government would immediately arch over that portion of tbe cre?k which runs through tbe public grounds between the canal and Pennsylvania avenue. Beiore any portion of these improvements is commenced, however, I would advise that carelul andcomp ehensive surveys, plans, and estucates be made of tbe whole qnestion of sewerage and drainage of tbe city, upon the re sults of which would depend, not only the probable cost of the works embraced In this particular improvement, but the requisite di mensions and capacity of the main artery to be formed by a portion of the canal, and the sizes of tbe different lateral sewers and veins tbat would intersect and be tributary to it; and for which it will be necessary to provide aper tures and flood-gates in the northern wall of the main sewer. It is very manifest that tbe present system of drainage and sewerage for the city is much too limited in its capacity to supply the present de mands npon it and that it should be greatly enlarged in view of the fact that very sooja from twenty-flv* to fifty millions gallons of Potomac water will be discharged into it daily from tbe Washington aqueduct. These considerations should induce the adop tion of a general plan of proper proportions to commence with, and the adherence to it in any branch or portion of the work that may from time to time be undertaken and oompleted. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. Sbtxoub, Chief Engineer Washington Aqueduct.

And you say a so tbat tbe "Society consists of a single tn ?riMdi al by the name of Northrop." "The Guardian Society" of which yon speak. is a socie y incorporated by an act of Oodgr-es. T he immb? rs of it whom I can now call to minri,l? r I have no record to refer to, are Amo* KfPdaP, John M. It rod bend, Z. C. Robtnns, H. B French, J. B. Nortbrup, Deacon HeaJi, Juflpe Cart'er, and Judge Olln. A rej-ular meeting w*s held under the oh&r t r, and officers of the society elected; but it havii g a very limited amount of fonds, be; little has been done. Congress was petitioned three or four year* ago for a grant of land, and a bill passed the Senate during the last Congress making It, and was only lest in the House for want of time. The petition was again presetted to the House early in this session. It was referred to the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, and a number of tbe members of the society, among them Judge Canter, Mr. French, Dea con heath and Mr. Northrop, went before Lha; ct mmittee and urged the passage of a bill. 1 be e< mmittee took tbe trouble to go and ex amine the land asked tor, and they formed the* bill as they thought would be best for all con cerned, making it imperative upon the sootetv to exper.d a large sum of money within three years from tbe passage of the bill in erecting bi tidings, &c., otherwise the grant was to be void. The commi'tee had the bill a long time under consideration, and matured it after much consultation. It was reported to the House (n the ll?th of February by Hon. Mr Bice, of Me., the most respectable and worthy chairman of the committee, and was ordered to be printed. It was printed and was eight weeks before tbe House without a single ob jection being made to it. On tbe 2Uth of April it was considered and passed. It was no more rmvggUd through the liouse than any other bill regularly passed, but had all possible noto riety given to it, Tbe object of the bill is an excellent one, and of much importance to our city; and should r. become a law. and Its provisions carried into ?ffert. great pood will result to a class of per sons now running loose upon the community wi'h no means of support. Respectfully yours, B. B. French. MBETIXO OP MBTBOrOtlTAV POLICEMBN.? Alarye meeting of the Metropolitan Holioemefi, who are making an effort to secure increased compensation tor their arduous dutes, was held last night in the Council Chimber, <tity Hall. All the precitcts were represented. The rr.e?tirg was called to order by Roundsman. E< klofl", of the Fourth ward. Officer Lipscc mb reported that the committee appointed at a previous meeuug had had an interview with the House Commute uu Dis trict of Columbia affairs, and tiat the interview was a very saislactory one. as Mr. Steele favored 'he request of the police and tbouKOC they should have an increase. Mr Steele afnd tie majority ?f the committee expresse t them s 1 v?s pleased with the manner In which the p lie bad gone to work in the matt r, and with t le resolutions adopted by them, and stated t^t ( he amount asked) was lt'tle cnanrh, a wl the police deserved it. All of the oom m tt>e were in favor of increa?ipg the pay, aid ga\e every assurance tbat they wouia work to tbtt end. It was stated that toe Caottol police received 9l,3i<0 per annum and were on duty scarcely more than three days < ut if - ix. and tbe cemmittee could not see why the Cor >ora. ton police shottld not also rceelre ade^na'e compensation. Other cflicfrs expressed themselves satisfied wi'h the interview, and Mr. Pendle said he had no doubt the increased pay asked would be granted. He had heard tbat the Di uict Ct mmittee favored a fifty per cent, increase, aud he believed the Committee of Ways and Means of the Council was in favor of the Oc.* poi&Uon doing the same thing. Alter remarks by other gentlemen, the oom mi'tf e, consisting of Messrs. Grant, Lipscjinb, Nooimn.Cronin, Pierce, Clark, Hepburn, Se? bold, and Sergt. Barker, (who was added 1 an-, nifht.) were, on motion of Sergt. Cronin, di rected to confer with the Board of Metropolitan Police with regard to this matter. Kesolutions were unanimously adopted ten dering tbanks to the editors and reporters of tbe papers of tbe city lor their ad voc icy of th* policemenB' interests, and also to Mr. Aabory Lloyd, president, ar d the members of the UoxrT mt b Council, for granting them the use of the ? hamber for the meeting, and the meeting then adjourned to meet again at the call ot the ccm mittee. Aiexamdbia Affairs.?Several attempts buiglary occurred in the city last evening. Some one gained entrance to the grocerv and provision store of Messrs. Davy & Harmon, on the corner of Prince and Royal streets, laet night, bnt did not succeed in making a very valuable haul. The burglar enterea the feed, room through the second story window on Prince street, and gained access to the store by removing the upper partot the brick wall over the door leading into the same. Something must have alarmed him exceedingly, as ho iieit. so hurriedly as to forget bis coat and hat and a flue pipe. Some one also gained access to Mr. Andrew Jamieson's stt-am bakery last night, but did not succeed making a very profitable invest ment. A few crackers were taken and a few destroyed and scattered around the ro jtn. An attempt was also made to gain access to Mr. Jannev's grocery store, on the northeast corner ol Prince and Kova) streets, but the at tempt proved unsuccessful. We should thluk that a few watchmen or policemen were badly needed in the city. An order has recently been issued, taking effect from the 1st Instant, requiring all civil ians traveling on Military Railroads to pay fare at tbe rate of fire cents per mile. If pas senger cars are furnlahed, instead ot the ontldy uncomfortable box cars, the result would doubtless be a snug revenue to the Govern ment. We presume, however, the order was not issued so much with a view to making It profitable as to that of turning the travel into other routes. A young woman, giving the name of Belle Davenport, was arrested at the depot on Sat urday dressed in the uniform of a U. S. soldier. She waeendeavoring to go to tbe front, where she stated she bad previously been in her male attire for along lime with Major Pattoa. A collisslon occurred near Geesboro' Point, ebout one o'clock to>day, the ferry steamer Fulton running into tbe small government steamer Argo.
