To-day's lYibune says: "Beeober's
oross-examination shows him as sur?
rounded by persons unworthy of trust,
whom ho implicitly trusted. Ho was
entangled in a not whose meshes he
shrank from breaking, becausoof scan
dal. It is n saddening exposition of
weaknois, where uu udmiring public
most looked for strength. The black?
mail feature scarcely helps Beeoher,
but falls like lightning upon his assail?
ants. It Bhows Til ton's attitude in the
business as touching the depth of in
fumy. To Moulton it is destruction.
Carpenter only escapes ou the ground
that he knew no better. Unless they
can promptly break the force of this
revelution, or disprove Beecher's ex?
plicit and, iu tho cross-examination,
detailed avermeut, tho whole pack of
his pursuers are plaoed by it beside
Woodhull, and need occupy the
thoughts of decent men or women no
moro forever." The Times say6:
"Whatever Mr. Beeober's statement
may do for hie own character, it cer?
tainly places tho character of some
of his quondam friends and confidunte
in a most nneuviable light. Beecher's
cross-examinution goes to show that
Tilton is not only it bud witness, be?
cause be vapors und threatens and in?
sinuates and drags iu irrelevant mutter;
but because ho lies under the taint of
pecuniury interest; nor, us the case
now stunde, is the attitude of Moulton
any more creditable. The worst fea?
ture of the case is that the discomforts
of these gentlomen may induce tbem
to afiiiot the public witb more of this
interminable tuugle." The H'orlu'snye:
"Beeober has spoken out like a mau
to men, and he deserves, as we have
not the least doubt he will receive, a
manly judgment at the hands of his
countrymen. As for the vermiu who
have preyed upon him, it is as unne?
cessary to dwell ou their moustrous
crime against society, as it is difficult
to see how that crime can be ade?
quately punished." The Herald says:
"Beeober has presented bis ease as its
best, and we oannot doubt but his
statement relieved the minds uf a vast
majority of those who read it, at most
as if the whole burdeu of reproach
were lifted away. It has cleared the
air wonderfully; and if some mists re?
main, this much is true, with Mr.
Beecher's absolute denial of tho
charges made, we are under an obliga?
tion to weigh the statement und
counter-statement by the relative cre?
dibility of the persons from whom
they oomo, nuless intrinsically there
are contradictious and inconsistencies,
whioh invalidate either statement, or
unless the statement* are invalidated
by the incompatibility of their general
declaration with the facts they admit."
The Sun says: "As to the charges of
Tilton and Moulton and Carpenter
and any alleged admissions to the man
who would hung a dog on the word or
oath of any of the three men who had
so much us tho smell of black-mail on
the hem of their garments, has no
manhood iu him. The community
cannot permit u man to be destroyed
by the testimony of character of snob
against Mr. Beeoher." Tho journals
generally accept Mr. Beecher's state?
ment as vindicating him from crimi?
nality, bat regret bis weakness.
Beeoher left for Peekskill, to-day,
and will not probably return before
October. At the parting reoeption,
with his oountenanoe lighted with joy,
