River, L?q., the able engineer to whom the execution of the law was entruausi, made v?ry caretul survey* aud estimates, followed by a report tbat elicited penernl admiration by its ' ability, am by the .agacity of the Tlews pre. 1 sented for dealing, not only wiih the bridge question, but also with 'hat ol even more im. portaoce. the question of tb* improvement of navigation on our river front. Mis plans were so practical and *o easy ?f execution, at a moderate expense, tbat it waa at tbat tim* deemed certain tbat the work would be speedily entered upon and completed; but more than ten year? have elapsed, and it has not even been commenced, while tbe necessities for it* accomplishment have yearly show. tb*m?elve* more apparent. The recent breaka*e of the Long Bndg* and the railroad bridge cansmf a necessity for dealing with tbe queition at this time, and the lact that the Potomac during the present nood has songbt the very channel indicated by Mr. Rive- as the proper one. mufces it a nmter of interest to reproduce tb* main point* of hi* report. It is evident, he says, that plans for a per. manent bridge at Washington cannot be properl\ ma ured without a due regard to the intereet* of navigation, nor should tb* equally vital and importantqnection of railway communication be overlooked. A thorough ex mma'ion of tbe river and adjacent country wa*, therefore, deemed indispensible. A compkta hydrograpaic sarvey, extending adiatanceof six milei?from the island rocks, sailed the Three Hitters, (a half mile above Georgetown,) to Ofsborough Point, (one mile below tbe Arsenal,)?eatabliahe* conclusively that acme improvement ia tbe actual state of the river >a imperatively demanded. The depth of the Potomac at the Three Sutert is eighty, four f et, and thence to a quarter of a mile below Eaaby * wharf varies irom to thirty-three feet. Below that point the current spread* ifeir over an immenae surface, gradually losing its energy, n nt?I the channel present* a depth oi only ten feet at mean, and eight feet at extraordinary low tides. A* the ilde rise* only three feet, this depth is wholly inadequate for the purpos-j of navigation. Farther on, the cans*way of tbe Long Bridge ao contracts tbe current that we acain And a depth of thirty-two feet Below the Long Bridge tbereexist* two channels?:heGeorgetown, or Virginia, and the Washington, or City channel. The former i* by far the more considerable, until the tidee of the Eastern Branch exert tbeir beneficial influence on tbe latter. After tbe junction of the two channel* the water attains a depth of fifty-four feet Ihue it will be seen, that there are flata separating tbe Washington and Georgetown channels. aud extending as far aa the La*'e-u Branch. Be *ays: U bren x*jy common to assnmetba these fiat* owe their origin to the causeway constructed to facilitate the erection of the Long Bridge Thi*, however, aeema to me a singular confusion of cause and effect.

The roadway wouMF'fie thtr'y m forty leal above tbe highest available groanrf on the "Washington shore, a feature phiectiocable in eyery way, and precluding tbe paseag* of a railroad. At each an elevation tbe bridge would be 1,000 feet In lengb, at be<i ' a wmpcr'aYy WnTTfffe',' And of Immense expense A bridge cooM be bnilt at a lower i elevation, bat it preaenta tbe disadvantage of a draw, obstructs navigation, and would not bci owmoriats so large a number of tbe oiuxena of Wash mfian as tbe Ixmg Bridge. Tbe railroad connection, though poaaibie, la not ao favorable as the one at tbe Long bridge. A abort distance above Kasby^e whirf occurs a very great | contraction In tbe width of tbe river. It nas teen suggested that advantage migbt be taken ot itu ltatuie, to erect a bridge there at a moderate coet. It would, however, in tbe cpinion of Mr. Kivea, be dangerous to contract atill luriber a water-way already iusuOsient by introducing piers?a necessity not to be obv a'ert by a suspension bridge, as a draw would again t>e indispensable. A brlage at IDis point would greatly Interfere with the busiLess aud commerce ot (Georgetown, and pietent no lacilitiea whatevei lor tbe passage of a railroad. 1 be aqueduct piers, be reports, present ad 1 vantages tor the construction ot a bridge, bu tbe facilities for railroad connection are not lavorable. It is impracticable, or at least would be excessively expensive, to pass througn 1 C?eorg>town witb a railroad, aud the country around Georgetown Is very nneven, and the con&tracuou ot any railroad through it, aitbongb feasible, will be necessarily expensive. Tbe locality called tbe Three A'wfer* is little ! adapted to any other than a suspension bridge, aud the railroad line that would connect with tbe Three Sisters is less favorable thau the one by ibeaqueduct. In recapitulating tbe conclusion* resulting from the vlewa aet forth, Mr. Kivea sa>s: "It is proper,iperbaps, that I should here briefly recapitulate the conclusions resulting from tbe foregoing views. The localities presenting decided advantages over all other for a permanent bridge are the present site of tb<< UiDf Bridge and that of the aqueduct piers. For tbe general accommodation of tbe city of Washington, and the facilities of Intercourse with the country on the opposite shore, the site of tbe Long bridge is evidently moat appropriate. A permanent bridge tuere, however. is necessarily expensive, and, to avoid the total obstruction ot navigation, rauaihave a draw, which u at the same time an inconvenience both to travel, especially railr ?d travel, and to navigation Every locality between 'bat ard 'he iqnednct sh ires in It* disadvantages, without presenting its facilities. '1 be proposed bridge over the aqueduct piers is more economical, avoids a draw, and accommodates at the same time the intereats, of navigation and rail way travel, and, to a limited extent, local travel also ; but as a means of communication with tbe opposite shore for tbe city of Washington it ia altogether defective "To provide for all the exigencies ol the case, therefore, it would seem to be necessary that both bridges should be constructed?'tie I hong Bridge (on a legs expensive *eale tliau that which has been contemplated) for ordi>>ary purpose*, and soa? not to be lnconsls'ent with an improved navigation, which Is at present a most urgent want: and the bridge over tbe aqnednet pl-rs lor tbe three fold u*ee of railroad, local road, and vasal. Tbe cost ot the two ibus regulated would not be ?o great., pro. ably, as tbut of tbe I-ong bridge alone, fitted for railway nse as well as ordinary purposes, in vol vine increased width, a much teavier draw, and more expensive construction of every kind, while tbe dangerous accidents. and many lacouveniences inseparable from the concurrent use of a lone and extended bridge for both railway and oommou travel would be happily avoided.'1 The apace occupied by tbe Important and intetesting viewa embraced in Mr. Kivea' report, aa aet forth above, obligea ns to defer any further remark in this connection. We are glad to aee that the Board of Trade have taken tip thia question, and hope that they will Initiate some action leading to practical results. CONFIRMATIONS AND REJECTIONS.
