Testimony to Disprove Mr. Beecher’s Blackmail Charges. ANOTHER TALK WITH TIETON. Special jyiapaUh to The Chicago Tribune. Brookltx, Auir. 15.— 1f anybody supposes . that Mr. Beecher's long and perfumed statement has settled the case of Tilton's desolate bouse against Henry Ward Beecher’s work, then he must sleep the sleep of Hip Van Winkle to be perfectly happy. I came down from Saratoga today, and went over the field in person. Beech er had gone off like a 'traveling menagerie and wax-work show. Tilton stood guard in his home, with his old Irish housekeeper. His daughter Florence was at Cornwall, on the Hud son, near West Point; the little children were at - Mont Clair, N. J.; £3lrs. Tilton waa jealously bidden away, as Tilton said, because the Beechoritca thought she might fall into his bauds sooner or later. “It may be many years,” bo said. 14 She will confess the whole truth. Confession, with her, is absolutely necessary for the repose of her soul. Poor child, they will not let her cleanse her soul by* speaking. I told my daughter Florence,” contained Mr. Tilton, “that before these people were done with Elizabeth they would reject. £er, disgrace her, and cover her with contempt' Beecher did jdat that day before yesterday. It is a part of his plan to disbar her, and make her unworthy of belief, I do not know whore she is. I cannot learn.” -1 was ix search or moeltox, and a letter ot inquiry was sent to his business bouse. The following answer came back from one of his partners: “Frank is, I think, in Portland, Moi, to-day; at least, in a letter re ceived from him this morning, dated the 13tb, he said ho should go there to-morrow.” Whether ho la still there or not, -1 cannot “say. Should think he would hasten back under the circum stances, and I look for him 3lonaay morning. I was gratified, yet made sad, to-day, bv tho sight of • • A LETT EH FROM ELIZABETH TILTOX to her husband, written in Octooer, ld7o, three months after her confession. I will not say how or where I saw it, but that is not vital# Seduced, confessed, penitent, miserable. She addresses duplicate letters to her mother and husband from a point in the West where she was living out her year of contrition. All this time her mother, Mrs. Morse, the evil genius of the house, was preparing the public mind for the day of wrath, and nerving on her daughter to desert Theodore Tilton forever. The wife, petting her ideas of her household while absent from this unhealthy source, wrote upbraidingly, and yet m shame to her husband, seeking, it appears, to give him strength in his affliction to bear bis woe. The latter said nearly os follows, though I could not copy ic. lam telegraphing entirely from memory, two hours after I nave seen the lector: Theodore, I have taken my own fault to my Savior and made my peace with Him. Oil, why do you keep intimating it to my mother, and say in your Intense moments that after I am dead you will give the world a depic tion of Mr. B. Every time you throw a dart at him you make my heart bleed, for have I not already wrung his heart and clouded his uocfulaesa enough. When I told my secret fear, I knew that it was a wrong to you. I never renewed that woeful intimacy. When you break out in these strains of ferocity, everybody suspects what you mean. Even oar daughter, gather ing the meaning of the offense, asked me one dav over the table whether I was an adulteress. Think of the children born to us. of the ono still unborn, and pray God’s forgiveness upon us both. I know the ruin in our household, the gap between us who loved to well; the agony of spirit that is driving us on and on. If you cannot live fur me, live for yourself and those lit tle ones. Part from the company you have begone entangled with—Susan A. and Mrs. Stanton. In the present awful state of things, meekness, new resolu tions, prayer to God througn Christ, and a consent to live until He calls us hcnco is, all that wo can hope for. I long to return to my home and chil dren, but I cannot come until this agony b.* passed. Some say my mother is a bud adviser, but, if I cannot go to my mother, where on this earth can I go? Do not distress my father’s neart with the Imputation of bis daughter’s full. Although be is separated from mother, it gladdened my heart to hear him say that to her; *‘She was still his wife.” Ob, that cruel fate could make it possible for me to be at your side and stay your hands, and guide your feet. My heart is still pure; my husband and family are still all to me. For pity’s sake, let silence rest upon this thing, and, if we can never love again, let us spore the dear offspring God has given us. The letter is about eight or nine pages long. A duplicate was scut to Mrs. Morse, with orders to destroy it, and never mention its contents to the husband, but to read it that she might bo ad vised whet was being said from her daughter to the husband. The letter strictly BEARS OUT MR. TILTON’S THEORY that Mrs. Tilton fell without the knowledge of guilt; that she was awakened to the fact of •puilt by some such circumstance as rpading the story of Catherine Gaunt; that she then made a voluntary confession of her offense; was put in despair by the consideration t’*it she had de stroyed Mr. Beecher’s usefulness Za well as her husband’s peace of mind, and that the house hold was going to pieces before her sight. She saw her husband backsliding, tinpling to drown bis misery, and Beccber equally smitten with fear and despair. Through all it is' A RATIONAL TRUTH-SERVING DOCUMENT, and it is closed by an impioration to destror all correspondence, and apeak nothing that* will spread evil report. Not a point in this letter is met by Beecher’s labored defense. I also saw TWO LETTERS FROM REYNOLDS AND FORD, Tilton’s attorneys, written in li7l, while the suit of Tilton against Bowen was pendirg,which wholly refute Mr. Beecher’s statement that he settled Tilton’s caso with Bowen, put $7,000 in his pocket, and enabled him to establish the Golden Age. These lawyers write let ters, each of them, and enjoin Til ton not to submit to any arbitration, because bis case is perfectly sound in open court; and they say **if voa’eubmit to an arbitra tion it must bo in the interest of a third princi pal to avoid disclosures and not to got deserts. What I advise is that vou prosecute your own rights. Be not diverted by sympathy with any outside party, and play your part like a man of business, open and above’ board.” When Mr. Beecher, therefore, says that Tilton used him (Beecher) to get what was belonging justly to Tilton, ho prevaricates and alleges to nimself AN ACT OF GENEROSITY HE NEVER PERFORMED. On the contrary, Mr. Beecher was the man who had Tilton discharged from both Bowen’s publications, immediately after ho found Tilton had knowledge of guilty intercourse with his wife, as tbe following memorandum will show: Mrs. Tilton confessed to husband, July 3. 8h« failed to tell Beecher that she had confessed until Dec. 30. TiUon had bis celebrated inter view with Beecher the same night. Next day, Dec. 31, Bowen, in a curt note, broke his re cently revived and strengthened connection with Tilton, thereby inyol-ring himself in the following penalty, to-wit: Ho agreed ~ u * or ' three weeks before to pay Tilton $5,000 a vear as a contributor to the Independent, and $5,000 a vear, besides 10 per cent in the profits, as editor of tho Brook lyn Unton, Ten thousand dollars, added to 10 per cent, made tho sum of forfeit to be paid by any yiolent cancellation of tho engagement. Mr. lilton neyer knewnntil Hr. Beechers statement that it ro Beecher who waited on Bowen and demanded him to get rid of Tilton. ■' Why did he do it ?” said I to Tilton. He answered. “Because he knewthat, with my Knowledge of his guilt, I must bo degraded be fore the public, and put out of ioilneuce and tho power to harm him. Therefore, while he seeks to parade his patronage of me as somethin" chiralnc, he was really taking the bread out of my mouth and out of the mouth of the woman he betrayed and her children.” Said I, What do you think of tho Brooklyn attacking you as a blackmailer ? It is ~ A PURELY XEnCENAUY BAUOAI*, said Mr. Tilton. Tracy, attorney for Beecher, m Mho the attorney for Field, whoso wife Kin aeila, the editor of the Eagle, debauched and seduced. Now there is a bargain that when i jacy comes to prosecute Kinsella ho will lot up lightly on him if Kiuscila takes the Ipart of Tracy a other client, Beecher. Kmsella’s house i» Idled with pictures presented to him in order to bring him to tho side of Beecher. Correspondent— Why did tho Woodhull women leave Now York for Europe just before Beecher’s statement was made ? riltou—Because Beecher had resolved to make mv offense of praising tho Woodhulls the main point of attack in his argument, and they came in opportunely. They were sent off by mingled terrorizing and bribing. Correspondent—What doyou think of Beecher’s statement ? Tilton—lt is below Becky Sharpe. It is crave u and malicious. When Moulton speaks, as he must, Mr. Beecher will bo seen aa be is. a man capable of treachery and lies, forced to unman himself; a crawling thing, unsound from texture to kernel. Correspondent—Did Moulton say anything harsh of mo for giving bia statement ? Tilton—Not one word. It waa a handful of rattling shot you threw in there. All they could do in reply waa to sail at you like a pack of geoae. Correspondent—That is of no coase*Miouco, said I; 1 have got my second wind. Oath’. MISCELLANEOUS. New Tons. Aug. 15. —A reporter has had a brief talk with Theodore Tilton. He demedthat he had received any money from Mr. Beecher, and if 3louiton had received the amount stated, it devolved upon him to account for it. Shortly after 3lre. Tilton’s confession of Mr. Beecher’s criminality, the servant who was then living with Mr. and Mrs. Tilton became aware of the fact, from having overheard conversations which had* passed between them, and she began to whisper to her friends in Brooklyn. As soon as this state of things was discovered it was determined to send the girl out of Brooklyn as a protection to Beecher. She was sent to a boarding school. Boecher paid her expenses through Moulton. This might have amounted to some 52,00t1. It is stated in the Brooklyn Eagle that this serv ant-girl business will wear another complexion when the story of the girl, now in possession of the Plymouth Church Investigating Committee, is made public. The allegation is that Tilton, not Beecher, was interested in her removal from Brooklyn. It seems from her statement now leaking out is that nho was an adopted child in tho 'Jilton household, taken when an infant, and al ways treated as a member of tbs family. Dur ing tho absence of 3lrs. Tilton, this adopted daughter left tho bouse, and, on Mrs. Tilton’s return, related •to her occurrences leading to that act. After a while tho story crept, out, and Mrs. Tilton waa sent by Mr. Tilton to more than one house to deny it, and finally, finding it did not die easily, the girl was induced by 3lr. ami - 3lra. Tilton to sign the statement denying what were called wicked stories set on foot against Tilton. After this retraction was obtained. Tilton had tbc girl sent West to school, and Francis D. Moulton paid her tuition and board bills. This is tho Iprl’s own etory as she has told it to the Com mittee, to her school-teacher, and Mr. Sherman. BEECHER left for Peekskill this morning, and Mrs. Beecher says she does not tbiuh ho will return before Oc tober. The Argus states that Frank Moulton will sneak. That he will do as Gen. Butler advised him, u Come in last.” THE TILTON LETTERS. To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune. Sib: Perhaps you are not aware of the great service which you have done humanity iu the publication of the marital correspondence of Mr. and Mrs. Tilton. Nor can one, except with the eye of prophecy, contemplate its full effect. But I apprehend that no book, sermon, or print ed document published this year, will exercise so healthy and elevating an iulluence as will those pen-sketches of two hearts. We had almost come to lose faith in humanity. It seemed as if the flukes of society's anchor were giving way, and that faith in innate good ness and virtue was being rout asunder. At this moment The Tribune, as a business-enterprise, steps in and procures these letters, and spreads them before tbe world. And you did well; but, like many another, you have wrought better than you knew. The country's ideal man had been tumbled from bis high* eminence, and iay broken in pieces ; and society was left without an incarnate God. (For. say what you will, man has ever had, and will have for some time to come, his worldly ideals.) Their bright particu lar star had palecl, and was sinking to the hori zon. But never paled a single star Frmi out the bright blue sky. But came another iu its place, To warm the heart, to glad the eye. And who, after reading those letters of Theo dore Tilton's, can fail to see that star. The world’s idol-niche is again occupied: again may we believe that there is Viitue, there is Honor, there is Truth; that there is yet somethiug in human nature which is high and noble; and that there are some who shadow in their lives this nobleness, and thereby give all hope of ul timate perfection in themselves. These letters are a fitting sequel to the lam entable story which preceded; and almost make us glad that the tale was told which re sulted in giving them to us. If the world can kc*p steadily in view the bright and noble nature which shines and beams through those letters, it can well afford the sac rifice for their attainment, and will be ail the better for, it. The whole story is but a tale of human nature, and a picture of its weakness and its strength; and teaches us that there is no ground for us to stand upon so strong os that of doubt. TTlicre Doubt, there Truth, u ; Tis her ►hadow. Doubt of our own strength, that we put it not to too severe a test, lest we break under the pressure ; doubt sufficient in our own moral rec titude to be constantly on the watch lest wo be surprised by a temptation too great for us to stand. Behold the two men ! I’hc one, climb ing to and occupying the upper rounds of Fame’s ladder, proud of his own strength, but unmind ful of the fact that his higher position brings greater dangers and temptations, swings himself iree from tethers, and ho falls. The other, steadilv .working his way up the same ladder, perceives that, tbe higher he gets, the stronger is tbe force of gravity; and that, if ho would keep his hold, he must exercise renewed caution with each advancing step. Like a cautious climber of some dizzy mountain-height, be lashes himself anew, from time to time, to bis guide and rock, determined not to depend upon his own strength alone; and there he stands to day,—grand, noble, sell-questioning, doubting, manly. May ho have strength to maintain his hold! By giving these letters to the public you have redeemed the putridity of the stream ; have shown that oven to this dark tale there is a bright, a compensating side ; and have turned thQ eyes of society upon a purer, sweeter stream. f ’ Isaac Gannett. Chicago, Aug. 14, 1874. “HIGH RELIGIOUS LOVE.” To the Editor of the IVio-jne Sib: As you, in common with other papers, have opened your columns so freely to the dis cufifiion of this matchless Beecher-TUton scandal, I thought I might be allowed space for a few words on a feature of it that seems to have been .comparatively lost sight of. I mean this ‘‘high religions love " that 3lr. Tilton descants so loft ily about. Now, we matter-of-fact persons no pretensions of being able to ever form the faintest conception of thabideal realm that his glowing genius and sentimentalism lead him to, where the lines are so finely drawn that we are told the most perfect religions lives pass on step bv step to an ultimate invisible blending with the carnal. Here is a flight of fancr that we instinctively turn from as from a loathsome picture, in which there is nothing but what is revolting to our higher natures; for it is not only incomprehensible, but impossible, that persons truly filled with high religious hopes and emo tions could commit so gross a sin, and conscience only warn them that they were sinning bv prac ticing deception enough to hide it. In all Mr. Tilton’s efforts in that vein, we can only see a fruitless attempt to place a single prop under a character he is laboring otherwise to tear to shreds; for, if his charges are proven, the world cannot cover those vile sins with this gossamer veil woven in his fancy. For they see crime as no less crime because done in the name of Heaven, by an eminent religious teacher and a professed religious devotee. C. BEECHEB’S STATEMENT. [The following portions of Mr. Beecher’s state ment did not appear in our telegraphic report of that document:] TILTON AND TVOODHTJLL. I have no knowledge of Mr. Tilton’s friend ship for Victoria Woodhull, other than that which the public alreade has. That ho mani fested ins admiration for her publicly, that ho wrote her biography, and that ho presided at her Steinway Hall lecture. I mention only because he aroused against himself great indignation and odium. The winter following (1871-72), Mr. Tilton re turned from tho Jecture-field in despair. En gagements had been canceled, invitations with dia in, and ho spoke of the prejudice and re pugnance with which he was everywhere met as indescribable. I urged him to make a prompt repudiation of these women and their doctrines. 1 told him that no man could rise against the public confidence with such a load. Mr. Tilton’s vanity seldom allows him to regard himself as in the wrong or Ida actions faulty. Ho could i>ovor bo made to believe that his failure to rise again was caused by bis partnership with these women, and by his want of sensible work, which work should make the public feci that he had in him power for good. Instead of this ho preferred or professed to think that I was using my influence against him; that I was allowing him to bo traduced without coming generously to the front to de fend him, aud that my friends were working against mm, to which I replied that, unless tho laws of mind were changed, not Almighty God Himself could lift him into favor if those women must bo lifted with him. Nevertheless I songht in every way to restore peace and concord to tho family which I was made to feel had been injured by me, and was dependent on my influ ence for recovery. [Mr. Beecher stated that Moulton showed him a proof of an article prepared ’by Tilton for tho Golden Age (and since published in the Brooklyn papers), in which Bowen was charged with mak ing scandalous accusations agaist Beecher’s moral character; and that ho (Bocrhe:*) pro tested against its publication. Mr. B. goes on to say;] THE TIUTARITE AGREEMENT. On its being shown to Mr. Bowen, he was thoroughly alarmed, and speedily consented to the apointraent of arbitrators to bring about an amicable settlement. The result of this pro ceeding was that Mr. Bowen paid Mr. Tilton over $7,000, and that a written agreement was entered into by Bowen, TUcou, and myself of amesty, concord, and future peace. It was agreed that the offensive article, the pub lication of which bad produced such an effect upon- Mr. Bowen, and secured a happy settlement, should be destroyed without seeing tho light. It was an act of treachery peculiarly base that this article was permitted to get into hands which would insure its publication, and that it was published. I was assured that every vestige of it had been destroyed, nor until a comparatively recent period did I understand bow Mr. Tilton secured its publication, without seeming to bo himself responsible for the deed. THE WOODHULL PUBLICATION*. Finally, after vainly attempting to obtain money both from myself and my wife as the price of its suppression, the Woodhull women published their version of the Tilton scandal in the November of 1872. The details given by them were so minute though so distorted that suspicion was universally directed towards Mr. Tilton as the real author of this which ho so justly calls “a wicked and horrible scandal,” though it is not a whit more horrible than that which he has now fathered, and not half so wicked, because those abandoned women did not have personal knowledge of the falsity of their story as Mr. Tilton has of bis. TILTON S “ TlttTE STATEMENT.” To rid himself of this incubus, Mr. Tilton drew up a voluminous paper called “A True Statement, but which was fanfiliarly called “Tilton’s case.” I had some knowledge of its composition, having heard much of it read ; but • some documents wero only referred to as on life, and others had not yet been manufactured. Tilton’s furor for compiling statements was one of my familiar annoyances. Moulton used to tell mo that tho only way to manage Theodore was to let him work off his periodical passion on some such document, and then to pounce on tho document and suppress it. This particular “true statement” was a special plea or abatement of tho prejudices excited by las Woodhull partnership. It was a muddle of garbled statements, manufactured documents, and downright falsehoods. This paper I know he read to many, and I am told that he read it to not less than fifty per sons, in whL h he did not pretend to cnargo im morality upon his wife ; on tho contrary, he explicitly denied it, aud assorted her purity, but charged me with improperoverturcs to her. It was this paper he read to Dr. Storrs, aud poisoned therewith his mind, thus leading to the attempt to prosecute Tilton in Plymouth Church, the in terference of neighboring churches, and tho call ing of the Qpngegattonal Council. After tho Woodhull story was published, and while Mr. Tilton seemed really desirous, for a short time, of protecting his wife, I sent through him the following letter to her ; [Here follows the letter published some time ago, in which Beecher commended Mrs. liiton to his mother’s God. Ho proceeds:] THE PUBLICATION OF THE “ TBIPABTITB COVE NANT.” The whole series of events beginning with tho outbreak of the Woodhull story repeatedly brought mo a terrible .accumulation of anxieties aud perils. Everything that had threatened be fore now started up again with new violence. Tilton’s behavior was at once inexplicable and uncontrollable. His card “To a complaining friend ” did not produce the effect he pretended to expect from it, of convincing the public of his great magnanimity. Then his infamous article and letter to Mr. Bowen made its appearance in the Eagle . It had been suggested that the pub lication of the “Tripartite Covenant” would have a good effect in counteracting the slander ous stories about Mrs. Tilton and myself which Theodore professed to regard, but which his foolish card and tho publication of that article had) done so much to revive and render mis chievous. Mr. Moulton urged me to got from the gentleman who held* the “Tripartite Covenant” a copy of it for us, when suddenly 3lr. Wilkcson cameout witfa it on his responsibil ity. Its publication in this manner I made strenuous but unavailing efforts to prevent. He had originally kept a copy of it. (Everybody in this business seems to have copies of everything except myself.) On the appearance of that paper Theodore went into a rage. It put him, ho said, in a “false position ” before the public, and he said he would publish another card giving a statement something like what he after wards wroto to Dr. Bacon ; that is. as I recollect the matter, declaring that I had committed an offense and that he had been the magnanimous party in tho business. It was necessary to de cide* what to do with him. Moulton strongly urged a card from mo exonerating Theodore (as I could honestly do) from tho authorship of the j articular scandals detailed in his article to Mr. Bowen and alluded to :n the covenant. [After tho covenant appeared. Beecher says: ** The alarm was sounded on me immediately that Theodore would do something dreadtnl if not restrained,” and ho wrote the letter to -Moulton, saying, *• I have determined to mako no more resistance, Theodore’s temper being such ... as to render me liable at any hour or day to be obliged to stultify all the de vices by which we saved ourselves;” and “I have a*etrong feeling that I am spending my last Sunday and preaching my last sermon.” Beecher's statement proceeds:] EXPLANATION OF THE LETTER. There are intimations at the beginning and end of this letter that I felt tho approach of (Sec Sixteenth Plagc.i NUMBER 35» FOREIGN. Holland, Kaly, and Belgium Recog- nize (be Spanish Republic.

Aug. 15.—The Paris correspondent of the Loudon Times , received to-night, says a Bayonne paper gives a circumstantial account, ostensibly written by a Carlist officer, of the landing of guns aud ammunition at Bermeo, a short distance from Bilboa, by an American ves sel, tho London, of Boston, commanded by Capt. Thomas -Jefferson. Jefferson, according to this statement, was so pressing in his offers to supply the Carlisle with artillery that on hia depositing SIOO,OOO in bank at Bayonne a Carlist agent accompanied him to New York. There the agent bought twenty-seven guns, with 250 cases of ammunition, and hired a tug to convey them to Boston, where Jefferson had been making every preparation for the voyage. Tho latter was about to take the guns on board when the United States Government warned him that the transport of arms to be used against a friendly power could not bo allowed ; but, on his repairing to Washington* whore he had a brother-in-law in the Navy Department, and representing that tho vessel was destined for Japan, he was sub jected to no further surveillance. On the 24th of Juno the Loudon started for Japan, but at night put back, anchored under Cape Farewell, aud, meeting a tug there, the guns and ammnni tiou were transshipped. On the sth of Julv the mouth of the Gironde was sighted, where* the agent left tho ship in a pilot-boat, landed at Arcacbon, and, passing through Bayonne, reached Bermeo. jfeur Carlist battalions were stationed there to protect the debarkation, and, on tho evening of the Sth, the London entered port, leaving the next morning without having been observed by the Spanish fleet. A few days previously the Govornor of Madrid had received a telegram from Bilboa stating that an American cruiser had been sent to the coast to prevent any American vessel from landing arms for the Carlists, but on the Government thanking the United States Minister for this friendly act he knew nothing of it, and tele graphed to Washington, receiving a reply on the Uth that no cruiser had been sene. The Govern* mont, therefore, had its suspicions aroused, ank telegraphed to the fleet in the Bay of Biscay 11 watch any American vessel, but she had already left. It is added that the guns were so disposed on board that the London might have been taken for an advice boat of the American navy. GEBMANT.

Eighteen months ago the overseer of some tin works formed acquaintance with soma young men of much higher social position, and discussed economical questions with them. Some peasants afterwards attended the meetings, and having agreed that all prop erty ought to bo held in common, they built a house in a remote quarter outside the city and set up a press, aud distributed pamphlets advo cating the now creed. In the meetings they had carried out the fusion of daises, the workman and peasant sitting beside the gentleman.

Cairo, HI,, Aug. 15.—Many of our citizen* were aroused from their slumbers thla morning about 1 o’clock by a terrific explosion, which shook the earth and houses, and made the win dows rattle. Many believed that a steamboat or steam-mill had blown up, and expected to hear the ringing of tbo fire-bells, bat as tl»« did not occur they passed an uneasy and sleepless night. This morning the explanation was given by parties who wcro awake and on watch at the time mentioned. The sky was dear, when an enor mous meteor, described to be as large as the fall moon, and almost as bright as the sun, appeared in the northern heavens, moving with grcai rapidity, with a tremedoua stream of fire follow ing it, toward the horizon. Bofors reaching the horizon, however, it burst, with a terrible noise, into several fragments, some of them bursting in their taro. For near ly a half-minute the streets wore light enongh to read. It was beyond doubt tho gcaJvTccc phenomenon ever witnessed in thii regiori.
