The joint resolution which pa>Md tbe Ham of Represented?fi direc's the Secretary of ths Iniertoi to order a survey, by competent en. gineers, of the ground and river near the ay n?duct brides in the District of Colombia, nod report on the practicability of constructing there a bridg%acros* the Potomac, with the cost thereof, Ac , estimating the co-t for a common bridge, ami for a bridge b,>tb for mil way and common travel; also, to examine aad re. port touching like bridges at or near the Long Bridge. It la well that a matter of such importance, not only to local interests here, hut to all concerned in facilitating travel between the North and South, should be carefully considered

beiorv final acnon is inkea. We believe lhat a thorough survey will lead to the Mime conclusions as those arrived a* by Engineer Hives, whose report we republished a few days since, and trust that it is but the first step in the construction of a peimanent work, wbich will ensure nuinteirupted communication with Virginia. There is one fact which must be borne la mind. Those who argue in favor of a bridge it the Georgetown Aqueduct represeut the disadvantages of a draw or draws, aueh as tho6e In the Lone Bridge, sn account of their delaying travel, and sometimes causing serious ftccideniR. Hut a bridge at the Aqueduct will not obviate these objection*, because :i dr\w will be necessary there. Wot only are there property-owners along tbe Potomac above the Aqueduct who claim unobstructed navigation to their quarries, Ac., bat there are many businessmen in the District cities who won Id i-stablieh coal wharves aloug the Potomac and extensive factories above the Aqueduct if It did not interrupt navigation, there being no draw is tb? present structure. These are iimong the reasons why Georgetown demands the remo\al of the Aqueduct.
