Seward declined, but added, "that if liv

tip One D. S. Koon, a-one-horse Jaw- 1
yer at Scranton, Pa., has - been trying to
nin some cheap honors before the .Covotte
Committee. A few weeks ago he inform
ed Mr. Winslow, a democratic member of
that Committee, that the, overwhelming
majority of Col. Scranton for
. COngress
from that.Distriet was brought about by
bribes.; whereupon Mr. Winslewsoteited
the Committee to make an order.'
alarp number .of- witnesses at'i
largeexpense. The Committee declinedi i
and Mr. - Winslow made his detnand'ie . ,
the House 'which . was granted - , - and the
witnesses summoned and examined, and
nothing being proved by their testimony
but the most flattering end.orseinent of
Col: Scranton, the case was disoharged
and the Committee unanimously ordered
that Mr. Koon should not receive 'either
mileage or fees, regarding his conduet as
au attempt at extortion. Mr. Scranton,
however, very generously directed his re
turning expenses paid, notwithstanding
his base aspersions. All the other wit
nesses were discharged and paid.
This experiment has cost about $1,000. 1
When Mr. Covode protested against call-I
ing witneses without specific inforiee-1
ion, Mr. Winslow.appealed to the House, I
and obtained the. order, and Democratic
papers alleged there was a design to ex.. l

WASHINGTON, Jude 8;1960.
Many rumors of au . extraordinary
character prevail as to'Mr. Suinner. It
appears that'eirly last - night an; individ
ual, represent:Frig himself from Virginia,
called at his room, and imperiously .de,
inanded au • explanation of "certain , parts
of.his recent speedh. Mr. Sumner gave
hiiii iio sada - fiction: " and :i.rdered . 'Min 16
depart, which he did with threats.
At a subsequent hour, 'three others
called, halting in the passage-way, and
sent up word that they wished to see him
alone. They, refused the' invitation to
enter his room—where Mr. Suniner was
surrounded by friends—and left, sending
a thieatening, message by the servant
that they would come with a force to
-assault hitwat 10 o'clock' • this moraine,
when Mr. Sumner's frienchsi were again
present. In view of these occurrences.
Some of thein acbompanied him from his
residence to the Senate to-day, apprehen
sive of personal violence. They are de--
terthined to exercise watchfulness and
piecaution. The attention of the Chief
of Police has been• called to the subject.
'Mayor 13erret called upon Senator
Stunner at the Senate Chamber on - Sat
urday forenoon, and obtain-4 a statement
of the matter from Mr. Sumner. He in
vited Mr. Sumner to give an affidavit-of
the facts, or lodge a coMplaint, which he
declined 'doing, saying that neither he
nor ibis friends had any inducement from
thepast to make any appeal to Washing.
ton /magistrates ; to which the Mayor re
plied that during the term of his office
there' bad been no reason to complain,
landn he would resign his office as soon as
he 'could uo longer preserve the peace of
the city and pretect every person in his
rights. He left; declaring his -determine

Mr. S.. replied that lie bad wade no

an apology as a bond—telling the, Mayor
to take.such measures is he saw fit.
Maye'r then :retired again, and soon re
turned, accompanied by Henry, and found.
