The county court, after notice has been given as aforesaid,
shall appoint two or more viewers, or a committee of their own
body, to view the place and report the advantages and
disadvantages which, in their opinion, will result, as well to
individuals as to the public, from the proposed ferry, and the

expenses of the proceeding shall be ascertained by the court and

the pendency of such application to be given, in such manner as
they may direct, to the parties interested, or any of them.
