Aoout tbe iroportauce and feasibility of ehangmg the channel to tbe Waabtngion side f the river there appears to be ao donbt, and 'I agree that tt ruu?t be effected, mainly, by means of a breakwater extending from Mtson's Island eaatward, aud by dredging a cnacnel across tbe tlata in tbs same direvtion. How to form tbe breakwater has not been dutincily stated by the engineers who havs written on this subject; probably for the reason that it was necessary for them to bare more exact surveys aud soundings. Hut on tbe qnes'ion of farming the channel they are more explicit, and although there is a general agreement in :be object aimed at, yet in tbe manner of accomplishing it therein a difference. One proposes to dredge a channel across the hat- of onlj one hundred feet widtb, aad to a depth uf twelve feet, depending on tb* current to work a greater depth, and to exteud the width to some 1.7WJ feet. To this part of his plan there are certainly some objections First, it will require too much time for the current to do w much work. Second, tbe great quantity of deposits to be thus washed away will not only be wasted, bnt may obstract tbe channel further down stream to an unnecessary extent. Thia danger and waste might both be avoided by u?ing these deposits in the formation of and tilling valuable lots alongside of tbs channel, as proposed in the plan submitted to the Mayor in December last, on the improvement of the ca. nal and nver, in which it is very properly claimed that there is an intimate connection between the Improvement of these two thoroughfares and between the interests of tbe city that ol the General Government. In this plan it is proposed to dredge tbe channel to the width 01 from one-fourta to one-third of a Bile, from Mason's Island u> the foot of 17th street, and with the deposits thus dredged form about one hundred and thirty.two acres or land between the channel and tte canal west of lTtu street, which it is supposed would be worth full two millions ef dollars more than its cost, if thna formed and improved as proposed. In this way a capacious channel could be formed in ranch lew lime than in the ether and the deposits of the river thas applied would be worth far more than tbe cost of drsdgiag the channel; beside*, it wonld obviate all apprehended danger, and all objection* tbat might be raised to allowing some million* of cubic yards of deposits being washed down stream. The oest of dredging the channel would tho* not only be fnlly returned ia the form of valuable lots, but the lot* coald net be formed and filled so cheaply in any other way as by thus applying the earth dredged from the channel. The location and manner of improving tte ground to be thus reclaimed is thus *et forth in the report submitted to ths Mayor. Tbis field will be bounded on the north by the Chesapeake and Ohio canal, ea?t by tbe pi* r aad causeway at the loot of Hth atreet, aad oa the aoutb and we*t by a curved line of cne mile in length, forming the river front? w bicb will contain a superficial area of 5,730,. square feet, a fraciiou ever 13.2 acres. The location and surroundings of this extensive field are peculiarly favorable tor an ecoaomleal conversion of it into a most convenient and valuable coal depot, or into wharvss and numerous sites for warehouses, to be used for various commercial purposes This mar be accompliabed by dividing the reclaimed land into six or eight parts, corresponding in width with tbe width of tbe city squares iu tbat vicinity, and forming deep, navigableslips south and opposite the middle of each square, and extending from the river front due north to withia fifty feet of tbe canal. At the bead of each slip, and on the fifty.feet *pac- dividing the *lip from the caaal, there might be placed crane* for tranaferring coal and other good* or article* direct from boat* in tbe canal to veeasl* ia the ailpa, or from the river craft to the canal boats. By uua locating the slip* opposite the city Squares, tbe middle ef the paces between the slips will come opposite the streets running north aad south; therefore, by extend, tag the sir sets so nth across the canal, aad aeroo* tbs middle of ths land or pisr spaces between the alipaas far as the river front, there will be wide space* between these street* and slips tbat may be used as open wharves, or for the erection upon them of extensive ware, houses, having their opposite ends or sidsa fronting on thestreetsend on thsslips. Counting the river front aad tbs sides and ends of the *lip* as wharvss, ws shall bays about three mile* of anch property within ths one mile in extent of river trout, aad all advantageously arraaged for the aaving of laber aad other exP*?!** atteudiag tbe trnhsfer of freight. T LVI*#f being ab>ui lour higher than mean Udaa in the rivsr, is a clrsamataaos that may be need advaatag*, oualy for cleansing tbe slip*. By having sluices at the bead ofsaeh slip, through wbich di*w water from ths higher level of the be thus thor. oaghly cleansed as ottea as may bs reaaired IK acres in tbs mannsr dsscribed will be about thiee miles, which, at 913 a lineal foot, VOSld coat .....9B37.6UU 00 To raiss the aurface above the higheet water will require 1,493.333 cubic yards ot sartb fi.lmg. aad as this can bs taken direct from the slips, aad from tho river la front. 4 0 cents a yard will bs abundant, which will uaoant to 397,333 20 9*14,833 W JE?unauag ths vuloeof the property reclaimed aad thus improved at 39 eaisasqaare Coot, including the mips, tbss ths whole surfacs area 4,730,1*0 square feel will amount to *973,000 00 It* value over Its cost 80 great dtffersaoe certalaly Tot this is not nil: tor, by takiag ths sartb for filling mainly from the river, will effeot all the dredging thai will he required to forth R broad and IU?*t?nt channel for rivet' from Mason'* Island as R*1 4b 17th street, which of itself would be 'Worth a large sum, and ought to be added to the foregoing vale* of 9l.o4o.uMhu. In dredging tbecbnsnsl further east thesarth can be similarly used m tbs formation ot otbsr vainsMe wharf property betweea 17th strset and tbe Af9*aal, and in extending Go vormnii reservations. It will thas be seen that tk? c*aal and river ofiTer sxteneive fields for imprOWAeat, which. It is hoped, msy not be neglected.

The sag. tte-tion that whatever work may be done ia the foimanon and execution of these improvements eball be mane to rontorm to a well m&tnred gt-ntral sysUm, and that tbe regulation and contiol thereof shall remain under com* petent authority, is certainly important. For instance, tb* lorm and lot a'ion of the slips, piers, w Carves, and th* entire line of river I frott should all be exactly established, and | th* construction of every part, whether done by tbe Government, th* city, or by private 1 panes, should all be wall sxecnted on a clearly dt-lli.ed plan, and ibua avoid such irregularis ! ty ana contusion asexista in tbe wbarvea and j piers of some ot onr leading commercial cities There ia no necessity lor such disgraceful work besides, it is far more economical, on the whole, to do tbe work right at tirat. All ofthe proposed work could and should be well and permanently secured along the water aide by substantial walla compoaed of atoao above j water, and resting on firm pile foutidationa, tbe cost of which a ill be froai *15 to $20 to the lineal foot, equal to S?0,10U or #100,000 to the mile. Such walls will last for centurlea and ! obviate the necessity of frequent, disagreeable and expensive repairs, which always attend wooden structures of this kind. The sores' way to secure all the enda desired, woald, ' perhaps, be to have the whole work and all other work of this nature planued and executed j under the direction and sup*rvlsioa ot a com! petent and faithful commissioner. tub tariff. Mr. 3Iorri!l la zealously pushing the Tariff bill in tbe House, but it has no earthly chance >f setting through this Congress. The Honse W*vs and Means Committee made two hundred and seventy-live amendments to the Senate bill, and of these, barely nineteen bad bee a consioeied up to 2 p. m. to-day. When the fact I* considered that tbe session ends at noon of Monday, the chance* of getting the bill throaga the House at this rate of progress, in season for tbe Senate to act upon u are dubious indeed. Tb''free-traders, and those on the other hand wbo fear a reduction of present duties on car. tain articles in which they are interested, seem to have joined lorce3 to defeat action upon the new Tariff bill. Should it rail this session, it | must go over until January next, as there is 1 no probability of getting it up in tbe coming i short seeelon. SUPERINTENDENT OF TUB COAST SURTBY.

Poland asked leave to take up the reso> lution authorizing tbe Sergeant-at-Arms to 1 erect monument* in tbe Congressional l>me?ery to those Senators who bad died since IHH. Mr. Wilson said if there was anything that ' whs a disgrace to the coontry, it was these c monuments. It was a good thing that none bad l>een erected in tbe last six years, and he " hop< d tbere would never be any more erected. 1 11 we were to have monuments, let them be f fitting and in good taste. 1 Mr. Sumner said originally there was some i reasou for tbrse monuments; they were placed * over tbe remains of those members who had t died in the city and were buried in the Congreesional Cemetery. Latterly, deceased Sen- i ators and members bad been removed u> their homes, and be could see no reason for piacin ; I cenotaphs In an un visited spot. If the memory 1 of their deceased associate* was to be perpetuated, h? would suggest the erection of tablets 1 in the Capitoi, where they could be seen. t The resolution wns then referred to tbe Com- t mit'ee on Contingent Expenses. Tbe compoaud interest note bill was then * proceeded with. a The Committee on Finance reported a subsl!i,u,e 'or ^ House bill, as follows: t That for tbe purpose of redeem-.ns and retiring ai.y compound it terest notes ootstandIng, the Secretary ol the Treasury is hereby authorized and directed to issue temporary i, loan certificates in the manner provided by 5 section one of the act "to authorize the Issue ? of l>nited States notes, and for tbe redemption . or fnndibg thereof, and for funding the float, ing debt of the United States," approved feb. t 25. ink?, bearing inteaest at a rate not exceed- i, ing three per cent, per annum, principal and i inteiest payable |q lawful money on demand; 1 and said certificates of temporary loan may eonsntute and be held by any national bank holding or owning the same as a part of tbe Issue provided for in sections 3! and 32 of the act " to provide a national currency secured by a pled re of United States bonds, and t > pro- , vide tor the circulation and redemption there, of, 'approved June 3, 1H64 : Provided, That . no less than two fifths of the entire reserve of , suc h bank shall consist of lawful money of 1 the t nited States; and provided furtner, that tbe amouti* of such temp >rary certificate at any;.me outstanding shall not exceed si1*1,- tf Mr. Sherman saul th?Heusebill authorizing r the tsc ue of *iui.0tx>,0*? legal tender notes o redeem the compound interest notes was a r violatien of the public faith. * ii0u8b?Mr. Stsv'Bs (Pa) asked leave to introduce a resolution regulating tb?* restau- s rant in tbe House wing ot the Capitol. It pro- ' vides tbut ?he Clerk or the House shall invite proposals for the keeping of the restaurant, to be opened on tbe Pith day of March, In>7, and biennially thereafter; and the right to keep tbe * restaurant shall be awarded by the Clerk. The person obtaining the restaurant shall pay the sura ol ?l,uou for the privilege of keeping the restanrant, that amount to be turned ever 8 to tbe treasurer of the Soldiers'and Sailors' Orphan Horn* for the benefit of that institution. The r*?olntlou met with some opposition but was finally agreed to. On motion of Mr. Stevens, (Pa.,) the House j resolved itself in'o Committee of the Wboleon the naval appropriation bill, Mr. Daweer Mass ) in the chair. The prlucipal appropriations are the follow, ing: For pay 01 commission, warrant and petty officers and seamen.

(Conn.,) an amendment was adopted authorizing the Sec- M , retary of the Navy to reesive ana accept a tract of land on the Thames river. n*-ar New London, Connecticut, for naval purposes. Mr. Rico (Maas.) moved to amend by adding an appropriation of ?65,ooo ldr the repair of the Marine Barracks at Washington. Mr. Hice aaid aince this bill was drawn hia ait*n 1 ion had been sailed to the fact that the Marine Barracka here were in a very dilapidated condition, and this appropriation was < necessary. 11 Mr. Scbofield (Pa.) aaid the only difficulty 71 In bis way waa that he did not see where the money was to come from. Mr. Kasson (Iowa) aaid that as he under. atood it, thla appropriation waa to rebuild the west wing of tbe barracks, and he feared it fl woald open tbe door for an appropriation to rebuild ull the buildings. The amendment was rejected. Mr. Klce (Mass.) introduced an amendment, T an morning the Secretary of the Navy to use O nay sum heretofore appropriated for naval 1' purposes and unexpended, for neceesary 1m- * provements and repairs at navy yards eati. ?, mated for, but for which appropriations have n not been provided in the pending bill. Mr. Kice staled that tbe committee had left tl Hi $700,00(1 for yarda that had been estimated for, andtbia is simply to meet ordinary ex- * pauses, which are necessary to the succeasful carrying on of the naval establ'shment. ri Tbe amendment was rejected. J Mr. Cbanler (N. Y.) moved to amend by a proviso that no anpermtendent or other per- w aon employed la any navy yard of tbe coaa- ol try shall be allowed to take any part, directly ai or indirectly, In tbe political questions ef the d*7 while In tbe employment of the United States, but tbia ahall not deprive any officer of the rigkt to vote. Mr. Kaaeon made the point of order that the f amendment was not germane to tbe subject 1 under consideration, and tbe Chair auatained the point of order. w The committee then ro?e, and the bill as _. amended was reported to the House. Tbe amendments were adopted in gross aud ? the bill pasaed. T The Speaker laid before the Houae tbe an- ? nual report of the Smithsonian Institution, and it waa ordered to be printed. * The regular order of bnaineaa being demand, bi ed, the Speaker announced that to be the con- . sideration of reports from tbe Committee on Foreign Affairs In the morning bonr. 91 Mr. Banks (Maae.) waived the right of the committee to the moraine hour.
