WASHINGTON, Jan. 25. – Brigadier General T. W. Sherman in a communication to the National Intelligencer, deems it due to the interests of the public service, to publicly proclaim the utter falsity of the statement made in several journals of the country, repeatedly brought to his notice, that a projected plan for the continuance of the expedition was abandoned, in consequence of a disagreement or misunderstanding between Com. Dupont and himself.
He says the most friendly and cordial feelings and entire harmony of action have always existed between them.
To-day being devoted by the Secretary of War for business with members of Congress a very large number of them are availing themselves of this arrangement.
