BEE Ol'TMDE FOR INTERESTING TILE ! takAl'UIC AND OTHER MATTER. THE PUBLIC PARK AND Til K NEW PRE3I- | DENT1 All MAMtfDN. In the Sfia -, vrfMiiav. Mr. Rrowu callel | up tfce bill for tbe estaohsbm"nt of a public park in the District of Columbia. It appjtatt a commissioner to negotiate for the pur; hasof suitable tracts of land, who shall report to tbe ?fit Coofrru. It wss defeated and passed ever till to-day. In tbis connection It may be ot interest to Tefer to tbe report of Kngineer Major N. Mtchler to tbe Senate Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds relative to a suitable site for a public p*rk and Presidential Mausion. Major Mi -bier was detailed by the War Department (by request of the committee for such service) to make the necessary pr^l.mtcary furi^jn and maps of certain tracts of Irnd ad or near this city, for the purposes of a public park, and also a suitable site for a Presidential Mansion, and which, in the language of the Senate resolution, "shall cum. tme convenience of access and healthfniness, good water and capability of adornment;" and n sdditiou to ibis to ascertain, if pracucab e, tbe price of said lands. He reports in regard to the park that the val. ley of the Koclt creek aud its tributaries, the T'rcad and l'iney branches and the severa' minor rivulets, with the adjoining hills overlooking these benutiinl streams, present the capital of the nation advantages not to be lifhMy di?r?fard-d in providing a park wottby a great propia. All the elements which cousinUle a public resort of tbe kind can be *cnnd in tbis wild anei romantic tract of country, Wi'b its charming drives and walks its hiils aud dale-, iu pleasant valleys aud deep, its primeval forests and cultivated fields, us running waters, its rocks clothed with rich ferns and mo-ses, its repose and tranquility, its light and shade, its ever-varying shrubbery, its beautilui aud extensive views, tbe locality is already possessed witb all the features necessary for the object in view There we And rature dirersifled in almost e\ery hue and torm, needing but the taste of t be arti?i ami (be skill of the engineer to enLac.ce its beauty ana unefalness; gentle prun ng ana re moving what may be distasteful, improving the roads and paths and the cou. suuctiou ot new ones, and increasing the already large growth of trees and shrubs,d-cldnous and evergreen, by adding to them those of other climes and countries. Tbe valley of Kj*;k creek occupies a central posi ti<.' n to both Washiugtsn and Georgetownas it lays between the Tennallytown road on , the west, oneof the most prominent thoroughfares leading out of the one city, and the Utb '> street road aud 7tb street turnpike on the east two of tbe finest communications running in a northerly direction from the otber. Prom tbe*e main highways many branches cross the -vallers or follow aloag tbe banks of the stream: these transverse roads already form beautiful drives Kock creek winds along for more than four miles through the centre of the proposed grounds, receiving at convenient points the waur- of the Broad and Piuey branches, and j several smaller tributaries. For a short distance it courses through a narrow butbeauufal vallej, tUen wildly dashes for a mile over a succession of falls and rapids, with a descent j of some eight feet, the banks on both sides | being bold, rocky, and picturesque; then j passes again through narrow valleys or be- ' tween high. bluff banks. At many points tbe ; creek is capable of being dammed, thus forming a series of lakes and ponds for useful and ornamental purposes. Tbe many deep ravine* setting in towards it can tarnish romantic walks and qniet retreats for tbe pedestrian Tbe larger part of tbe ground Is tbieEly wooded, and capable of great adornment. Here we find the several varieties of oak, the beech, tbe locust, tbe mulberry, the hickory, tbe sassafras, tlp? persimmon, tbe dogwood, tbe pine, with a great many shrubs, vines, and creepers, growing, climbing, and trailing throughout tbe woods. Beautiful vistas, artistically arranged, can be cnt through them, exhibiting distant point* of iandsoape . while charming promenades can invite the 1 wanderer to seek cooling shadee. Nature has been so rich in her vegetable creation that the plan of transplanting trees of large growth, which ban been adopted in most of the modern parks, will be unnecessary. There are some lew country seats, such as Blagden's, Pearce's , and Walbndge s, which have been highly caltivaied. Sno u Id it be foand desirable to erec the presidential mansion within the enclosure ! of tbe park, the flrst-mentioned site possesses many advantages, both ornamental aad valuable. Here and there some prominent point commanding views of tbe sarronnding country, wbere observatories can be located, conservatories built tor exotic plants, and ge. o metrical flower-gardens planted. Back from tbe stream some level plateaus extend, which can be ap propriately employed for zoological and botanical gardens, grounds for play and p*rade, and many otber useful purposes The lav *f the tand is such that it admits of thor?egh drainage, and the nature of tbe soil offers ; all tbe facilities lor building good roads; tbe granite and limestone rocks which are found out-cropping at different points will furnish the materials for thwir superstructure. The questions arise as to what should be tbe extent of tbe proposed work, and tbe prsbable price of the land As It should be one worthy the capital of tbe nation, and as the ground can be secured at a reasonable price before being occupied by costly suburban villas, it is recommended to purchase at once a sufficient j r.umber of asres bordering on Rock Creek, to anticipate the future growth of the city and its increased population. With the view of retaining as much of the picturesque scenery along the stream, and of also embracing the sites of some lew of the forts en the north coa> etructed for defense of the city, which have become historical, and from the parapets of which extensive views can be had, sue i lines are marked as may be satisfactorily taken as t approximate bonnds of tbe par a. in cass the I recommendations sbonld be considered too extravagant, a second series of lines are drawn ! for grounds of more moderate dimensions. The first traci. would contain about 2,Slo acres* more or less, aad tbe second l.ewu, more or lese. As there is so much difference of opinion as to the price of tbe land, the quality aad improvements \ arying so mneh, it is .? difficult matter to offer anything more than an approx icsate appraisement. As the right of eminen domain empowers tbe Government to 'rkt property, aad as snch powsr U the necessary incident to sovereignty, the question would finally have to be settled by a commission appointed by some competent court. The price ranges from to *1,000 per sere; a mean ot UMi should amply eover tbe entire cust. Accerdiug to the abase figaree tbe larger tract wovld amount to f&S.oOO, and.the turaller one to f3As tbe work o/con. atructiog a park will consume many veats, no onger delay thaa is absolutely Decenary should be coaenmed in tbe p rail mi nary nr. rangemeats for tbe passage of tbs necessary laws and the purchase of the lands.

This site is located due north from tne present White Honce, on the krst rang* of bills bounding the liini'a of (be city of Waah in(io>. It is of May arc***, se serai avoDfn and sTeets leading in tDat direction. On the ; emai II ndyntna tbe lands of Columbia College, and on tbe weal those of Mr. Little. The numJ bor of ttrw contained m iti? tract la one bun| nred and twenty, vtucb added to tbat of Mr. i Lit'le'e thirty-eight acres rives a total of one hundred and fifty eight. The latter off-red to to'he Government at about six centa a square foot, or 92 *>:3 per acre On both ibeeeesiates are elirblf buddin? sites; tbe view towards tbe south overlooking tbe ritv and the alley ot tbe Potomac, being particularly An*. At one time some large forest trees add-d beauty to the scene, but morn of them were de. atroyed durinc the war. There are no improv> lUMUt, the old mansion-bouse having been destroTed by fire, and the wail* are alone standing North of tbe site the land is nearly ! lev.|, only slightly uudulating. Although possessed of considerable ad vantage*, there aie sevetal objections to 'Ins selection, in coni nectH>n wuh tbe object in view. Lying just i above ibe platan ot the city, and not screened by any belt of timber, it is exposed to the miasmatic influences rt?intr from tbe marshes of i ibe pot? mac. Again, it is loo near the city to ?fford any retirement and repo?e for the Chief Madeira?. Already the street railroads approach. and nuni*roa<i houses are being built : on all sides of this site. II. MetrmptJit Vuw?i Homestead of the la'e Washington Berry )?This estate lies northeast cf the Capitol, bet ween the old Blidenshurg road and Lincoln avenue, the littler a contin nation ot North Capitol street It is distant from the Capnol about two and a half mile-, and from the Wbiie Hou-e about three in le<. ; It contains fome three hundred and fltty acre*, valued by ihe trustees at *50() an acre, with the improvement*. including a very line spring the whole is offered at $4*>,li i) T<> the east ?r it lies Brentwood. tbe fine estate of Mrs Pear, i sen, ard to the west Glen wood Cemetery, and Ilatewood, the beautitul grounds of Mr. C >rcuran. in front spreads out Eckington, ? ?? many years the homestead of tne la^e Mr. Gales, wbi< h contains 13" acres; the price ot this, land is placed at ?1,000 per acre, with ??5.hh< additional for improvement*. Metropolis View is beautifully situated, having a : high and commanding position: It is ptr'.i illy i covered with groves of fine old frees, decid uons and evergreens, an it possessed of au ubnndjinc^ ot timber. A tinf gprln^ ns^s in the place, and two small streams, tributary* of tbe Tiber, course through ir. In nearly eyery direction tne eye meets with charming lanes, ape scenes, and It overlooks the capital and tbe broad valley of the Potomac This localr v possesses many at raations, and is susceptible ol great impro\ement. It Is easy of : access bv some of the finest avenues and stre-ts lending out of tbe city, and is at a very con venient distance from the most prominent public buildings. Kcklngfon is a deiighifol place, bnt It is n >t snfll. ienMy higb to aifbrd any e*t -nsiyp yle x*. It should, however, be purcVased in aiditiijn tjthe 1 terry estate, shonlrt Metropolis View he selected as tbe sue. The two tracts of land united would furnish ample grounds to surround tbe mansion, and al-o open a fine park to connect iritb the city on the direct line with tbe Capitol. Thesnm total of the valuations of both estates amounts to *355,0)0. in re<a d to the bealtbfulness of this locality, the opinions of those with whom 1 have consulted difter very materially. Some think that the miasma carried up the valley of the Tiber frontbe Kastern Htabch is very deleterious to health, while others, who have long inhabited these old homesfnds, pronounce then tube perfectly salubrious. III. llareuvvjd ? (Mr. Corcoran's estate) Among the many delight.'ul drivea around tbe city of Washington none can compare with those to be found wi'bln the enclosures of this dHigbtfnl retreat. The grounds are most artisticallv arranged, and no expense ha- b-en spared in aderinng them by all the appliances at tbe command of taste and wealth The grounds are naturally beautiful and undulating. and all that skill can accompliah has been applied to render tbem most charming and picturesque. in addition to tbe natural growth of vegetation, many trees and plants of other nations and climes have been introduced to impart their luxuriance to the scene. Tbe estate covets seme two hundred acres, but as vou follow tbe gentle windings of the drives and walks, tte imagination is led to believe it to be of much greater extent. Owd ro ids lead tn it from the city, making It perfectly accessible. A fine spring furnishes a plentiful supply ol water, and tn point of health it Is all that can be desired This spot, originally selected by the proprietor upon which to erect a princeIv mansion, is one of the most delightful situations among tbe many fine ones in the en virons of Washington; it would be a most eligible site fuT a presidential mansion. IV The kvm'itrad of Mr. Jf?acure Robimoa ? T bis estate is now occupied by a brother of tbe proprietor, the latter residing in the city of Philadelphia. It lies adjoining tbe lands belonging to tbe IT. S. Military Asyium ; the load which leads oct of the city on tbe prolongation of North Capitol street and pastes near the home for the eld soldiers, utmost divides tbe place into equal part#. There are abont seventy acres in all, which the owner proposes to sell at per acre, without the improvements-thesebe values at JOO.O'^O. The mansion occupies oue of the most elevated positions in the neighborhood of Washington. An extensive panorama of the surroundtug coun ry lies betore the beholder; from every point of the compass the eye can dwell upon magnificent landscapes extending far into Maryland and Virginia and cemblning nil tbar is beautiful and picturesque. In one direeticn the gaze rents lor mile9 on the waters of the majeatis Potomac, and in another there are mountains and bills mantled with forests, and plains and valleys highly cultivated. The place contains a large portion of heayy timber, and is so situated as to offer numerous advantages f >r improvement. From its great height It will be far above all malarious influences. There are fine springs in the neighborhood, which furnish an abundance of water for nsefnl and ornamental purposes. The locality is convenient to both cities. Through Washington several ^venues and streets le.vd towards tbe road above referred to as connecting with North Capitol street; by this drive a straight-line communication can be had with the Capitol, the distance between the two being less than four miles. By the avenues and treets connecting with the Fourteenth street road ar d Seventh street tnrnpike, thence by Kock Creek Onnrcb road a very direct drive of SJLlU*.?w ,oor mU#* ca" bad with the W bne Houae and the public bnildings adjoining it. From Georgetown almost an air-line can be bad from Boundary street, Taylor's lane, and Uock Creek Church read, distance of about four milea. Directly la front, or south of Mr. Robinson' beantifnl locality, He the very pretty ground# ?.' Mrs. R. S. Wood, conaieting of 4o acres. Tbe two must be considered Inseparable, ahonld tbe Kobineon site be selected for a prudential mansion. They are valaed at about f i.ono per acre, not including tbe improvements. The two piaeen can probably be pnrobased for ?150.000. Mrs. Wood s tract joins Harewood on the south, and on the west that of the Mill, tary Asylum. Tbe lands of the latter do not belong to tbe Government, but are in frast for Ihe old soldiers, and contain seme 2W acres A refereaee to the map will show the honorable committee tbe peunliarly attractive feature!*. both of position and general convenience of aceese, offered by tbe locality described above, containing in nil about 114 acres, sufflcieet for U?e necessary purposes of embellish neat and utility; and lylnr contignoa*. to tbe already omani-atcd groups of Harewood and the Military Asylnflj. rnjoying all the charms and ad van tares of those delightful places. It would bo dimenlt Indeed to find a spot mora dBP,*d a retired, pleasant home for tbe President of tbe tTnited States." In conceding bis report, Major Miobier suggests tbe necessity of commencing tbe con. structlon ol ibe national parkas soon as practicable. It Is a grand and beantifnl nndertaking, and sbonld be prosecnted with the great. ?t energy. A sufficient appropriation f<jr enclosing the grounds purchased, for improving and keeping *n repair tbe drtveeand walks already constructed, and for tbe laying oat ef uithers. should oe made. For tbis purpose aiiM),ux would be sufficient for preeeatexpta. dituree. ^"Governor Swann, recently elected U 3 Senator, baying given notice of bis purpose to resign the Governorship, the Mary laud Senat yesterday appointed a committer to maks ar! rangements for tbe inauguration of Lieutenant Governor Cox on Tneeday next. ?"From French A Kichaxdsou, M Pennsylvania avenue, and from J.
