Th« Removal of the County Seat.
A delegation of the in cm bora of the Bar Asso
ciation of Ibis county, beaded by Senator Bayard
went to Dover, on Wednesday, to confer with the
members of the Legislature and urge tbe paaaage
of an act authorising the removal of the county
aeat to Wilmington. There waa a meeting of the
members of the Legislature held iu the Hall of
the House of KeprcseuUtires, which waa forcibly
addremed by Messrs Bavard, Harrington, Lore
and Higgins. These gentlemen have ail carefully
examined the question, and they advocate tbe re
moval as a matter of economy to the county, aa
well aa convenience to the whole people. Mr.
Bayard save the "interest on all the county would
be required to expend, would be saved from the
extra mileage that tbe county w as 'compelled to
pay for the attendance of witnesses from Wil
■uington." Mr. Lore "believed that the saving
would not only keep down the interest but in ten
years wonld pay off the principal." Mr. Harring
ton (bowed that the amount to be raised ouUide
of Wilmington wonld not exceed *15,560. Mr.
Higgins urged the matter and concurred iu what
had been said.
The Sherman Scandal,
le still a topic of conversation in Washington.—
The Ways and Mesne Committee of the House
on Tuesday examined some witnesses from tbe

rassing position. They indicated that white he
had not rendered tbe aervioe for which ha con
tracted, be had, in order to secure tbe pay for ser
vices, as he says, performed by othen, made rep
rosontatione to the broken that were contradicted
by the facts and the testimony he now gives. It
ii said the J udga is liable to be impeached not
withstanding the efforts oi hit brothen. tbe Gen
eral and Senator.

In the House of Representative! yenerday, Mr
Wood offered a resolution directing the Judiciary

vote af 109 to 105. Tbe Democrats all voted for
the reeolation, and ell the Republicans against
it, except Beatty of Ohio, Butler and Banka of

It is now said the Pomeroy Com mitte« have
