To-dny we conclude Mr. Carpenter's
itory of "tho difficulty between Mr. Meech
er Ktid Mr. Ti.ton. Tbo report yesterday
ended at n point wbere Mr. Carpenter
made ulludon to Mr. Oliver Johnson's

staled, before the committee, that Mr.
Tilton never sharped in his (JohnsonV)
hebrini; tbtt Mr. lioecher had boen crimin
ally intimate with Mrs. Tilton. Mr. Car
pentor is wuline; to nwear that his ilrtt
absolute conviction" that there had been
adultury butween Mr. Meecher nnd Mrs.
Tilton was derived from tbu statoment of
Oliver Johmon to that ctTect. Mr. Car
penter c.ctmues :
I can prove that Oliver Johmon used
these, words: "My lipt cro eale.d by n

Importer. In alluding tu Mr Tilton '
cbarhrUr. you stated that ileraco Ureoley
and Obarius .Sumner had koth alluded to
Mr Tilton' s ease.
Mr. Carpenter. Yes, Horace Orooley
said to me- "Nobody can mako mo be
lieve Thoodoro Tilton is a corrupt man
no matter what Mrs. Vodhull says." In
March, 1373, when Sumner was sitting to
mo for his portrait, he sp.ke of Tilton in
tbtso words . "Theodore Tilton is n
great writer, flo Is n man of geuius. In
reference to bis domestic troubles, I

such interests are invoivisa T'
Mr. Ouuiner replied; "I have been
called into ono such case, and 1 have seen
tho utter folly and futility of all measures
to cover wronj;."
Jtoporter. What Is your opinion of Mri
Tiltoii's statoment ''
Mr Carpenter, I hesitate to express an
opinion, tor Mrs Tilton has made such
unaccountable statements to me. For
Instance, you remember J. told you 1 Was
picsont whan th ;mt in wrltlni: thu tnto
meut that Meecher had solicited, her, she
told m that her admission in that letlor
ltrporttr. Do you think Mr Tilton
published ino m. iu..t. b.u.. 1.0
thought it was Dr Macon i Judgment that
au investigation should be had ''
Mr Carpenter. I do. II u appealed t
Dr Macon for ndvire, but walled in vain
lor a tingle word of counsel. Dr Jlicuii
did say, nouovur, to thu friend who rilU 1
on him in Theodore's behalf that, if Mr
Tilton did not maku that letter public, ho
should bo Inclined to do so himself. Dr
Macon hud tbo utmost conlldenco in Mr
lleechcr'a innocence, and, In tlio luce cf
sai.li serious charge, ho very naturally
un.t wisely wanted to seo nn issuu made,
and have the hcandal settlod finally and
Mitportor. It ba been stated that Mr
Meecher did nut think ho couU uonslit

Mr. Carpenter. That is true. .Mr
Meecher told mo that if Theodora would
t'iku the public position ho wanted him
to 011 tho Woodhull iiueslion, he would
pour subscriptions into tho Golden Age
olllce by tho thousands. Oliver Johnson
at una lime, prepared u statoment for Til
ton to igu in reg-ird to Woodhuil, tut
Tilton declined. Mr Tilton asked his in
timato friends not to !oi sight of tho
