Tbe party concerned in the lobby schema for getiin* an appropriation ol f3w,uu> from Congrrss for converting the aqueduct at George, towu into a bridge across the Potomac, for lb* w*e ot Washington, in lieu of the Long Bridge, " em to have made a pretty successful start. Tfcey roanacrd to seen re the insertion in the three morning papers to-day of an editorial warmly fnvoringthe scheme above m>'uiioned, and all three editorial.* bear the earmarks of the same f-aterpity. We imagine that there ronst have been some consternation in the ad. Mortal ramps of the papers iu questuu this morning on seeing the tell-tale marks of comti.on paternity in these editorials, enowmg unmistakably bow tbeir papers had been "used"' by the echemers in question. Now, 11 ta quite outof tne question that any such lobby tcLeme shall h?? successful; and that a community of an hnndred thousand people t-ball have no more direct access with the \ irginia shore, with the great sonrca of market supply, with the neighboring city of Alexandria, and with the great line ol travel South than by a circumbendibus ot eight miles via Georgetown and the Aquedust. We concede that it is idle to waste more money upon tie Long Bridge upon its present defective plan. Hut this is just the time to erect a permanent bridge there, aud iu connec*ion therewith to carry out the great scheme of river improvement solong felt to be n^ej-d. There should be bnt one channel for the Potomac. that channel should be its uatural one from Georgetown to tbe W asbington shore This wa.< iu channel before the construction ol tne t-atfeway at Mason * Island, and in the present flood it has again sought its old natural channel Irom Georgetown to the Washington shore. A short breakwater from the foot of M ism's Island is all that is needed te turn tbe chanue | to this shore. This done, and tbe Hate reclaimed, tnrre need be but a short exteut of bridge span over the Washington channel, and it ton Id be constructed without great expense, and in a manner not to interfere with navigation So feasible is this plan that some of the tnoet responsible bnsiness m?*n ot this city bare offered to carry out the improvement of tae channel indicated, taking for their remunera. tion the reclaimed lands of the flats. We have space to-day only to indicate our views, but propose hereafter to urge them at more length, aud to show, also, how Georgetown stands in her own light 1a endeavoring so pertinaciously to defeat the projector a mutual channel for the two cities. RECONSTRUCTION. It will be seen by our report of the proceed. Ugs in Cougress yesterday that two plans of | reconstruction were introduced; one in the Senate, and one in the House. That offered by I Mr Dixon in the Senate is substantially the ?ame as that proposed by the Governors of Southern State? and other leading men of the South in the late conference here, which was published to our paper of Tuesday. It is in tbe shape of an amendment of the Constita- i tion, which decrees that the Union under the Constitution shall be perpetual, holds tbe public debt of tbe Unied Mates sacred aad inviolable, and repudiates tbe rebel debt; declares all persous born or naturalized ia the United States to be citizens, and gives to all persons equal protection of tbe laws; and apportions representation among tbe several States ac- I cording to their respective numbers, counting ; tbe whole number of persons iu each State i excluding Indians not taxed, unless the sxer- ' cise of the etertive franchise is denied to any on account of race or eolor, when the enure class of persons so excladel from tbe polls snail not be counted in the basis of representation. No State shall require a property qualification for voters more than the value of two hnndred and fllty dollars taxable property nor as an educational qualification more edal cation than enough to enable the voter to read the Constitution of the United States in tbe English language and write his own name. The bill to provide for the efficient government of the insurrectionary States, reported in tbe House by Mr. Stevens, from tbe Joint Committee on KeconstxucUon, is more strlngent in its provisions than any scheme yet submitted to Congress for a solution of existing political difficulties in connection with reorganisation. It wipes ?ut the present State 1 Covernmenfs of the Southern States; divides ' the South into fl ve military districts, each to be governed by army officers of at least the rank of Brigadier General: gives the ri*bt to arbitrate all matters of life and property by military tribunals, forbids tbe judges of the United States courts irom issuing writs ot ba. beas corpus, except in certain cases; and, in fact, substitutes military for civil rule in the excluded States, without assigning anj period when Its operations bhall cease, and those States be readmitted. Mob* Gift Emtkkpeisic Makao*h? 1* T*01 T"*LB.? The Crosby lottery business is be* ing looked into. A citizen of Chicago, who pronounces tbe wbole affair a swindle, and insists that money was obtained from him un. der false pre'ences, has sued Crosby ?( al. on charges of this character; and if tbe prosecution is carried through it will be of some interest -It will at least," says a Chicago paper, develop the manner and modus operandi ot th9 Lee-i ru?-by transfer, about wbicb so many people are inquia tive." The authorities of JSew York eity are beginning to move with viger against tbe lottery and gift enterprisesJudge lngrabam, on Tuesday, delivered a strong charge against the whole system, pro nouncing it entirely illegal, aad inviting tbe grand jury to Indict all persons taking part in IV A movement is 01 foot to tbe Legislature, also, looking to more stringent repressive measnres. In the Senate on Tuesday a motion was made to inquire Into tbe late Gift Enterprise to New York city for tbe benefit ol the Soldiers and Sailors' Orphan Home. Tbe hi over said be bad received a letter from a *' tinguisbed officer, representing that unless the Legislature interfered the Orphan Home would not receive a dollar of tbe larg* amount collected by the manageis of tbs lottery. Wai.l a OfRba Hotrsx?Tbe popular comedy of "Lor don Assurance" was performed last e> enmg. in a manner which elicited enthusiastic applause from the large and fBsfc. lonabie audience present.
