Second Daj's Session of the Congrega tional Council to Try Bcecher. Preliminary Proceedings -Bro. Shear man Active in Behalf of His Pastor. New York, February 1C When Dr. Leonard Bacon, moderator, called tbo advisory council to order this morninir, not more than half the members were in their seals, and the galleries wero only half full ot epsctators. The exercises b;gan by singing the hymn, "I Love Thy Church, O, God." Delegates and church members were arriving freely now, and when the business hour ar rived there was a good attendance of both. Rev. Dr. Bell, of Mansfield, Ohio, of fered the following resolutions: fiesolved, That it Is our firm Lelief that Rev. H. W. Beecher is innocent of the eins and crimes laid to bis charge. Jiesolved, That we regard with pro found bdmiration at.d gratitude the un shaken and loving faith, trust and devo tion of tho members of Plymouth chnrcb, Brooklyn, to their pastor, espe cially because by tbese we have been en abled to arrive at all the facts by which we know he is innocent: and especially oo becaisetbnatl-ey have ei up Jfied he beauty, ndenty and gloiy oi tne mta as it is in Christ Jeeus. our Savior and our Lord. Dr Bell, attempting to speak on (he resolutions, begun bysaying, "Mankind were waiting to know the opinion ot this council in regard to this matter," when he was interrupted by a point of order, tnat tue subject oi tbe resolutions wa? not given to tne busintsi of the council. Tbe moderator decided tne point well taken, and the decision was on an ap peal by Dr. Bell, who alone voted In the negative. Mr. Shearman protested against being called upon to present the c&Sd of Plym outh cnurch In the absence of the com mittee, and then was read Ex-Deacon West's protest, presented yesterday. against tbe submtsiion to tho council of any otner questions man tue gum or in nocence of Mr. Beecher, and asserting that the whole cause is contained in the extraordinary conduct of Plymouth church in dropping from Its rcs'er tbe names or Tbeodore Tiiton ana Mr'. M Milton. The protect was referred to the special committee previously ap pointed. Mr. Bfecher announced that Mr. Shearman would represent the case for tbe church and mid "Herri, or either of u, will besutjictto such inquiries as may ruggest themselves to the minds of tbo ccuacil." Mr. Shearman made an exhaustive statement cf tbe case of Plymouth church, traversing al the ground gone over ysajrday by the pastor and Dr. Edward Beecher, and taking up in ad dition tbe subject of tbe mutual coun cil, arraigning Mrs. Mculton for her ac tion throughout. Tbe argument of Mr. Shearman was interrupted by a recess taken to give the commltteoan opportunity of getting through a vast amount of work they have upon their hands. EVENING SESSION. The advisory council reai ssmbled at two o'clock. A great number of specta tors were present. Tbe session was opened with prayer, after which Mr. Shearman resumed, giving the'details of tbe letter of opposition cilered by the committee to a mutual council, in which certain delegates should sit cm members Plymouth church was not ruled by one man, nor ty ten; these who were sup-poee-d to ruie, were most trequently over ruled. Ho denied that Piymoutb church bad gone beyond its tight as a church of Chriot, eo aa to justly' forfeit its claim to the co jfldcnce and fellowship of the Cotgregiiional churches; never was thero a more preposterous cafe. He had read a long report of an Investigation which was had in the matter by a com mittee appointed by the church. Al though they bad done everythiag aiked of them, It was demanded thst they go be 'ore the courts He cited the trial and the verdict, and said that there was no new evidence; it was only what some hpdy bad told some-body else. When Shearman concluded a lengthy examination of different members of the committee was gone through with relative to the questions contained in the letter missive, during which Shear man explained the motives of the com mittee in objecting to tie churches of Stoirs and Buddiuton bslng represent ed in tbe council. He said : "Supposing Judge Van Cort had accepted the objec tions and agreed to withdraw tbe churches, he could have represented tbe cae to these churches, so that there would not be any apparent discourtesy.' In replying to Mr. Shaw, of Illinois'. Shearman Biid: "The Piymcn'.h com ml'teo never cgreed to withdraw the rutestgin6t thechtrjhes named sfter once putting it In." Numbers of questions were a?kedoy the d lTeront delegates to ascartaln whether tho let'ers sent to the churches were written as fcom the church or from individuals, and it wt.s satisfactorily shown that they were written by Judge Van Cott and Shearman as individuals. Dr. Bacon was examined at great length as to the meaning of tho pbrise, roll of the church and the course poisued wheu tte members names were diopped. Ar j ourned till seven and a half o'clock. MCJHT SESSION. At the night session Roesltrr Ray mond, Lawyer Shearman, and Brother Beecher wero each subjected to a pre liminary examination touching tho scandal, during which it was stated that Mrs. Tilton'e brother and sister-in-law would be put upon tho stand. Ad journed. CKOSo IsmOIiALITi'. Vlclorln VfoodUall'ft Stnlement Rn. IntntHl Slmsncliiisoll Clvllixa- Ion. Chicago Times. Boston, February 1-1. That venerable Matsachueetta institution, tho board of State chsritits, is just ro.v undergoing an overhauling by the legislature. For some time past there has been a war be tween the chairman c f tho board, Frank B. Sanborn, of John Brown Bleeding Kansas feme In the past, uud lately known as the Boston corre spondent and editor of the Springfield Jiepublican, and the visiting agent, Colonel Gardiner Tufts. Last wee k Mr. Snborn appear d borore the legislative committee with formal charges ot mismanagement on the part of Colonel Tufts, and to-day a hearing was given on the charges. Mr. Sanborn alleges, in brief, that the man agement of tiie Tewsbury almshouse is rotten to the core; that female inmates of the icstitution have been used for purposes of prostitut:on by keepers, and, in short, that the gros sest demoralization prevails at the insti tution. He tuid that tho cost to tbe Slate on account of juvenile crime had largely increased, as he would show by figures. In 1S61 a girl was removed in a pregnant condit oa from the Lancas ter school to Rainslord Ldand hospital. The tupp'.ssd father of tbe child was one of tbe trustees of the school, who was compelled to resign by his fellow trustees. To day Tewksbury is the cess pool of our public charitable institution?. The increase of numbers there, taken to gether with the intreasing ueclect of the superintendent, inspectors, and tiio whole medical staff", who have neglected tho care of the sick, the iLsmo persons, and the hospital arrangements, have produced the worct results. During th9 visit of the board, bed-bugs were found crawling by hundreds ever the walh of tbe dormitcries and hospital. In tbe room devoted to tha foundling children there was an old- a3bioned privy, send ing forth an into erable stench. Insane patienta were imprisoned for refu sal to do woik. One female lun atic had been imprisoned for five weeks In a cell where food was taken her by a man. She was not al 1 iwed to see a woman, and any outrage might have been committed upon her. Another woman was imprisoned in & stone wall for seventeen weeks. Not a f-ingle inspector knew anything of this condition of things, though they are re quired to make weekly inspections of tue institution. Last May tbe mortal ity in the hospital at Tewkabury, which at no time could contain over twenty four patients, was forty-fcur per cent., eleven patients dying in that month. An eminent physician has given it as his opinion that the mortality at Tewks bury lsnftypsr cent, more tbau itsnould be. Colonel Tufts denied tbe eharge; defends his expenses, and charges that hla own board wa9 hindered in its oper ations by tne central ooara, wnicti sim ply sat in judgment upon the adminis trative officers, and in Its annnal reports took the credit cf all improvements made or suggested. Why Mr. Sanborn should have remained chairman so long, nis present cnarges ba true, ace3 not yet appear; but it is a very pretty moral as it stands, ana subsequent bearings will give more of Its true inwnrdnese. How Hie Great Boston Forger watt . Identlllcil ami Arrested. London, February 16. It now ap pears tnat when the steamer Rotterdam was approaching her destination, Witis Iow, the great Boston forger, ssked the captain of the vessel if the Lfnitr-d S ates had an extradition treaty with Holland. The captain replied that he thought there was such a treaty. This frightened Winslow, who then concluded to come tojKngland. He left the steamer in a pilot-boat, and landed somewhere on tbo Dutch coast. His wife, sister and son went on to Rotterdam. In order to bafll-j his pursuers, he sent a telegram to his wife beating tbe date of Brussele. Winslow subsequently went lo Rotter dam, aLd thence came on to London. The clue to his whereabouts was discov ered by inttrceptine a letterhe addressed to his wife, telling her where to write to him. Tho Dutch police state tbat Wins low, by writing a letter signed with the assumed name of Clifton, bad brought himself within Dutch law as a suspicious person, tie would nave been conducted to tbe German frontier. Hon. Bancroft Davis had been telegraphically advhei to have a German officer there ready to arrest him under the provisions of tbo extrf ditiou treaty. A pocket-book has been found upon Winslow's person in which were inscribed the words: "Mor ton Ltflirt8, St Louis, Missouri." BBUTAl. 2IUKDEE. JInrcus Louis, n German and Slcrc-hnut of Holly Springs, Sliss, Slur- ' terel by One Kennedy. Special to the Appeal. Holly Spbinos, February 16. About nine o'clock this morning tbe body of Marcus Louis, a merchant of this place, was discovered jyicg on tne lioor or nia store, showing unmistakable evidence that be hsd been murdered at some hour during the previous night. The news rapidly spread, and soon a largo crowd assembled to witnejs the horrible scene. The crime was of so dreadful a charac ter that this usually well-ordered com munity was terribly shocked. Wild tu mors circulated rapidly, but nothing tbat would lead to a clue of the murderer was adduced before the coroner's jury until a late hour this afternoon, wheu a search was instituted, and bloody clothes found sewed up in a mattress in the house of a negro named Miles "Washing ton. He was arrested, aud says he was present when the marJer was commit ted, but tco? no nana in it; that an Irishman named Kennedy did tho deed with the ax which was found this morn ing near the body of the murdered mau. Kenuedy was seen with this as yester day iu the store cf Lvuls, and doubUets did tho deed, aided by the negro. He was seen at an early hour tens morning before the murder was discovered, and is now being pursued with every hope of capture. Never has uch a crime been committed in this community, and never sucn a scene witnessed. Marcus Leu is was a Prussiau by birth. He came to this place since tho war, and has been engaged in the mercantile business ever since. The supposition is that Kenne dy Is trying to make his way to Mem phis through the country. He is about twenty-five or thirty ye3rs old, light complexion, blue eyes, short light hair, no whiskers except a little near his ears, and heavy set. When last seen this morning, about six o'clock, he had nu a black cloth coat, brown jeans pants, flannel shirt, and white slouch hat.

The High Character of the President's Private Secretary Testified to hj Lending Ofliccrs of the (JoTcrnmcnt Etc. St Louis, February 16. Immediately upon tne opening oi the unueu utatea circuit court this morning ex-Attorney-General Williams nroie and addressed tbe Jury, opsning the defense of General Babcoek. The courtroom was thronged, the greater portion o? tho audience be ing attorneys. Very few of the govern ment witnesses were present, the most of those from Washington having been discharged from service and allowed to leave the ci'y. General Williams de voted consldirabla time to au argument of tbe piobabilities in the case, and o a criticism cf the evldei.ee f r the govern ment. Assuming that what the gov ernment had presented was competent evidence, which was by no means ad mitted, General Williams said the case might prteent some su'picious circum stances, but by no meu3 the ground on which to baso a conviction. He then proceeded with some explanations which would throw a different light upon the communications botwecn Babcoek and the ring. At that time, he said, Joyce and M'D.onaid wore trusted officials, men cf influence and possessing confluence with good people. Babcoek, on the other hand, was a warm-hearted, confiding, geueious man, who did not give up a friendship once cemented for the whispers of calumny. Everything presented by the defense was incomplete and could not but leave & painful uncertainty in every mina as to whether it was to convey a proper suspicion, or to simply indicate a weak ness of;the ju Jgment, to which every ono was liable. The quantity of tb s kind of evidence, saia General Wiil'ams, avails nothing. A h use is made of bricks, but a million oi bricks, scattered over an acre of ground, decs not make a house any more than two bricks do. General Williams then traced Babsock's military caieer from West toint, which he eulogized as a place where honor and honesty were inculcated, and where thieves and robberj were not educated. He told of the defendant's service in the late war and how he rose to be chief of engineers in the Ninth army corps and afterward to hi aid to Lieutenant-General Grant, with the rank of brevet brigadier-general. A good deal of attention was given to General Babcock's rela tions to the President, and to the trust and confidence reposed in him as pri vate secretary to the President. In one sense, General Williams eald, he became a part of tho Executivo; his official de linquencies would moie or less reflect upon and degrade the chief executive of the nation; no ingratitude would be so black as his if he would bring dishonor on ono who had put such confidence in him. While explaining some of the tele grams tetwean Babcoek and Joyce and M'Donald, the speaker referred espe cially to the "Sylph" dispatch, and called it the pivotal point of the prose cution. If Babcoek sent that telegram for any criminal purpose, he took the very course to prove that purpose, be cause If he bad sent that telegram over his own name much of its significance would have been lost; yethejsent it in his own handwriting, leaving tbe proof tbat he tent it easy to procure. The "Sylph" siguiture was a mere act of thoughtless jeES or playfulness, of which all of ua are guilty at some time or' another. The speaker then reviewed seriatum all the other telegranrs and correspondence in the tvideace for the prosecution, and said the testimony of Everest shows another trick of Joyc?. He did not place the letter privately in tho postoffice as was natural for a crim inal to act, but he got one thousand dol lars paraded, and envelopes addressed to Babcoek and Avery, and pretended to put money in each and sent them by Everest to mail. This was only a damuable trick of a desperato villian lo convince tho distillers, through Everest, of their security. That no money was sent to Bibcock would be proved to the satisfaction cfthe jury before the caee was closed. Tne whole case shows, and will soon show far more plainly, that an attempt was made to sacrifice Bahcdck. A3 to the order of the President re voking the order to traLBfer supervisors and revenue agentp, it will bd proved that this rtvocalion was ordered in the presence and through the representa tions atd icfluence of Supervisor Ful ton. General Williams closed with quite a brilliant peroration, in which he askod justice of tbe Jury, notrneny, and trus ed that their verdkt would be a tri umphal acquittal. General A. A Hum phreys, chief of the engineer corps of the United States army; D. W. Mahon, first officer of tbe treasury of the United States; J. G. Barrett, ex mayor and ex postmaster of Washington city; Gen eral N. H Bantrs, member of congre a for Mifsichusetts; A. P. Fuitor, supervisor of internal revenue f the Statos of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland aud tbe District of Columbia; all testified to the good character of General Babcoek the utter sustaining the tes'i'tiony of President Grant that Ganerel Bibcock had nothing to do with the revocation of tbe order transferring revenue agents and supervisors. Telegraph and po3tal oierks were then put upon the stand and examined as to the telegrams and letters ssnt to and by General Babccck. A great many letters by Bixby, therevenue ajeut, to G. B. Bingham, at Indianapo lis, were than put iu evidence to show that Babcoek was not in any way re sponsible for tha removal or change of therevenue offlsers. Adjourned. A RAY FOR BAB Washington, February 16. Colonel Cook, of General Babcock's counsel, stated to-d y that he had received a tel egram from St. Louis announcing that the general opinion was that the gov ernment's case was a failure, and that the evidence was not sufficient to con vict. Colonel Cook was at the White Houe to-day, and informed the Presi dent of tho contents of the telegram. A Devil or a Case. London, February 16.
