H. M. SMITH’S STOUT.
Spfcial Dispatch to The Chicaqu 'J'ribune.
New York, Aug. 23.— Tbo action of Henry 0.
Bowen and bis sons in bringing suit against tbo
Brooklyn Argus for a libel alleged to have been
•ontained in an interview purporting to have
taken place between Henry M. Smith and
ono of its reporters aroused an
interest in tbo article, which, owing to Mr.
Smith's denial, published on Tuesday in tbo
Tribune, it never before bad. Hence,
reporter called on Mr, Smith at bis hotel yoster
day, to ascertain if possible what basis there was
for tbo interview as published. Mr. Smith was
very reluctant about speaking on tbo subject,
but ft nally made a statement, tbo chief points of
which are below:
INTENDED TO BAT NOTHING.
“I had proposed,” said Mr. Smith, “to say
nothing about tbo article published iu the
Brooklyn Argus of Monday, purporting
to bo a statement of mine in regard
to tbo position of the Bov. Dr.
Patton, of Onlcago, with roieronco to
the churgos against Mr, Beecher, beyond my first
pal'd published in the Tribune of Tuesday morn
ing, utterly disavowing tbo publication and
characterizing it as atrocloas and infamous in all
respects. The shape the incident now assumes
makes it the proper timoforthestatemont, which

AN OLD FRIEND OF MINE.

Laßt Sunday morning 1 called to see
Mi. Tilton. Ho was not at homo. 1 passed
up to Fulton atreot and mot Mr. Tilton, and
with bun a young man named
Kay, whom bo - introduced •to mo
aa connected with tbo Brooklyn Argus. Wo to
turned to Mr. Tilton’s house. Mr. Tilton spoke
immediately of engagements with his papers.
Which the young mau shared with him very
industriously, aud, withdrawing myself from
tfcoir immediate vicinity, I began to read. I was
induced by tbo cosy surroundings to remain
lor much in Brooklyn, which I took with Mr.
Tilton and his companion. They wore, as X un
dot a toed it, preparing Mr. Tilton’s forthcoming
statement. Among the visitors of the day
was Edward P. Underhill, whom I had former
ly known aud who was engaged iu the
preparation or trauscrintion of some
of Mr. Tilton’s papers. Between Mr. Tilton
and myself a very protracted, free-and-easy con
versation occurred. 1 told him that there were
two questions I would like to oak him: One. as
an old friend, which ho might answer to mo
frankly or not aa he chose. The other
for my information and his own, in connection
with the charges against Mr. Beecher, which was
a mystery to mo. 1 asked him a very plain ques
tion us to his relations to Mrs. Woodhull. w'hicli
ho seemed to answer as frankly. The whole
character of the conversation was very frank
aud free, aud any uneasiness I might have felt
with reference to the presence of the Araus
representative was perfectly milled by Mr Til
lou s confidential relations with bim, and be
hoving him as much interested aa myself
in what was said. My second question
was in this form (n question that I
had before asked of others during this affair,
and should have asked more prominently bad I
been connected with the press): What was Mr
Tilton s part in the discussion of
THE CHARGES AGAINST MB. BEECHER
among loading members of his de
nomination two years ago ? This
made necessary the reference to the
names of several clergymen, among them that
of tno Rev. Dr. Patton, of Chicago, who, us I
stated some two years ago, had spoken to mo
expressing bis sense of the absolute necessity that
the charge against Air. Beecher Heating through
the country should bo examined aud explained
and his character freed fiom them. The roferi
once to Dr. Patton was entirely, as I then be
lieved aud still believe, to his honor and credit.
He was a loading clergyman in the West ;
none more prominent io the Congregational
denomination. Ho was editor of a leading Con
gregational newspaper. Ho expressed to’mo at
the time the delicacy of his position, which
would tend' to place him in a false
light should ho press for an investiga
tion, but ho thought it the proper
province of a loading public journal to
do so. lie never u< any time expressed to mo
aiiy knowledge whatever of the grounds of
these charges. I mot him, conversed with him
a knowledge of the general character
of the rumors hoard by mo at that time, in com
mon with many others throughout the country.
I asked Mr. Tilton, *Weio you connected with
those rumors ? Wore you at this time pushing
those charges? I know that your relations to
Dr. Patton wore not of a character at that time
to make him a confidant of yours, and it seems
ryour charges must have had some other source.*

A CANADIAN OPINION.
Svecial inspaleh to The Chteaoo Tribune .
Toronto, Out., Aug. 27.—Tbo Globe , which
baa till tbo present been reticent on tbo Beochor-
Tilton scandal, has a two-coiumn editorial this
morning reviewing tbo tcatioiony so far made
public. It says s “On tbo evidence bofoi-o us,
no judge could charge strongly ou one side or
tbo other. It may bo said with coulidonco that
tbo controversy has taken its place among tbo
unsolved disputes of biatory, side by side with
snob questions as tbo cause of Lord Byron's sop*
aratlou from bis wife, tbo authorship of the
Junius Letters, and ibo mysterious personality
that lurked behind tbo Iron Mask.” with refer
ence to tbo letter of contrition of Jan. 1,1871, it
says s “If wo apply to this langungo the criti
cism wo should to tbo generality of mankind,
and remember the charges made, it seems difll
cult to roach but one concluaion." Thou o' the
contents of tbo letter of Feb. 7, 1871, it says:
“On the hypothesis of downright innocence it
is incomprehensible." After commenting ou
various points pro and con. It concludes as fol
lows j •• It in entitled to ail the weight of a life
of noble work, with all the force of ontcccdent
improbability that goes with it. If over there
wore circumstances io which tbo benefit of a
donut should bo given they are hero, and al
though this is not satisfactory, thousands will
gladly avail themselves of it to relievo the dark
obloquy which might well shako a more consis
tent mind."
BEECHER’S HOLIDAY.
Turin Mountain House, S. 11. (dt/t/. 24), Dltpaleh io
the Seto York World.
So far as Mr. Beecher is concerned Mr. Moul*
ton’s statement will, for tbo present, receive uo
notice. A requoßt from tbo Commute or advice
from bis friends may bring out a counter-state
ment. In conversation to-day bo remarked, ro
forri ng to the copy of Mr. Moulton’s statement
given him Saturday, “In regard to that matter
I have concluded not to say a word ; no, not a
word.” Later in tbo day bo was asked if his
decision was final, and bo Baidj “Yes. I have
nothing to say ; I say too much when I talk at
all, and 1 have bod to take a negative position in
regard to all inquiries. I can sneak only through
my irienda. You see it won’t do for mo to talk',"
and ho wont on in tbo same strain in answer to
alt inquiries. An allusion to tbo desire to obtain
information directly from bim led to his saving:
Yes, I should bo very glad UTobligo you ; I
have been treated in a very handsome and gen
tlemanlike way by your paper. 1 appreciate it
deeply, very deeply. Now you must tioat mo
exactly like a bit of punk ; don’t make mo of
any account; ask me what questions you
please."
Ilia first decision was reached before Mr.
Moulton’s statement was read to him by an ac
quaintance. Ho talks oo all other subjects, and
yesterday evening spoke of his proachipg hero.
It will continue each Sunday till the lost week in
September. “I call this my country parish,”
said he, “ and take it up regularly each summer.
I can always see when I come up hero that the
tendency in a hotel like this is to break up iu;o
cliques; but something of a human interest
binds the people together. They come to feeling
like a big family, aud I think that is one of the
reasons why they enjoy themselves hero." Tbo
family fooling is pretty strong, and Air. Beecher
is father of all concerned. Ho is the central fig
ure everywhere—yesterday at the religious ser
vices, morning and night, whether ho 'preached
or listened, aud co-mght again at a charade
party.
People flock to tho edge of the broad piazza
when ho comes iu from tho croquet-ground with
an annful of mallets to hour his gleeful “ Our
side beat; wo wou tho last gumoT” By some
happy faculty ho knows everyone, uow-comor or
olci; and tho “good morning," collective and in
dividual. ho beams on the odd hundred or so in
tho dining-room aa ho enters it for breakfast
would last through tho dayif it was not repented
at each meal. Ills country parish extends a
good way beyond tho hotel. Ho is known by all
the families around, and some of them have
solid reason to remember bim. Ono farmer near
bero with bis farm heavily mortgaged found the
mortgage paid off last year UuougirMr, Beecher’s
efforts. Besides pastoral work of this practical
kind and his weekly sermons, Mr. Beecher
devotes little time to labor. A drive or a trip up
or down ou tho railroad takes up tho forenoon,
and after dinner ho picks up tho short, heavy
mallet, which Is his lavorite, aud once ou the
croquet-ground docs not leave it till it is too
dark to ace. Occasionally ho tries the bowling
alleys, but of lute finds tho exorcise too violent.
Croquet is his favorite game,
Mr. Beecher wont over to Littleton to-day to
sign a paper in which ho denies all the charges
made against him by Tilton.
It s pretty cold up hero. There was a sharp
frost lust night, but Air. Beecher got enough in
terested iu his game to-day to attack it in his
shirt-sleeves. To tee him rushing from wicket
to post, dropping on Ins knees to sight the shuts,
rejoicing over the discomfiture of his advoiaa
nos, and driving his ball along to victory, was a
revelation of whut can bo done when the man
and mallet come together. Next week Mr.
Beecher goes up to the summit of Mount Wash
ington for a day, but besides this bo has os vet
planned no excursion from tho hotel. After
leaving hero, about Bopt. 24. bo ivUl pass a abort
time iu Fcekskill before returning to Brooklyn.
A SHAMEFUL WRONG.
From the Sew York Sun (tupporltr of Jleecher.)
In tho published testimony of Bessie Turner
tho Plymouth Church Investigating Committ oo
havo been guilty of a grout wrong. Tho witness
fs ono ou whom no reliance whatever can bo
placed, for the rusou that in her evidence she
repeatedly speaks of lies that sho herself has
told, and shows that whatever sho Bays at ouo
timo she is ready to contradict at another. Nev
ertheless, her statement is given to tho public,
casting a grievous imputation upon two ladies
whoso ago and character ought to iusnro thorn
from attack, unless mado from imperative rea
sons and upon testimony beyond question.
What purpose iho Committee intended to sub
servo by publishing tho slandeious statements
and insinuations of this worthless and solf-con
fessed liar respecting Mrs. Stanton and Miss
Susan B. Anthony we cannot imagine. It is
possible to coucolvo a motive for parading her
allegations against Thoodoro Tilton, sinco lie is
an avowed enemy of Mr. Booolior, and tho Com
mittee are his friouds; but ueithor Mias Anthony
uor Mrs. Stanton has assumed any public atti
tude or hostility toward him ; and tho diffusion
of theso slanders lias tho appearance of being
aitocothcr gratuitous.
Wo havo repeatedly urged tho Committee to
mako their proceedings public, so that whatever
might bo said or produced boforo tbom would be
accessible to tho reporters of tho press. This
method would havo created a rational control
over tho whole examination, and there would
have been a ohanoo of applying an immediate
corrective fur any falsehoods aud mischief that
might ho introduced. Tho Committed have,
btwover, prof fried to keep their sittings private,
aud they publish those alaudors under their own

8. Ho iifiod a tiihd man’s mediation and friend

of certain criminal lawyers, called his savior a

0. Ho ran away from Tilton on tbo platform,
in tho press, and during the •• Investigation,"
having first stolen Tllloirs wife and waid to bo

api Bailees, including a part of the press, to beat
Tilton down, and “editorialize" iho evidence,
and throw dirt upon tho pioofs, all the way
through} and now ho is taking care of his
“throat."
I’ho fnct seems to bo about Mr. Beecher that
ho la a sort of clerical Sleoiforth (aco “ David

belief; gallant in stylo, hnmicero, and vet

TILTON ON BESSIE’S TESTIMONY.
h’rfitn the Sew York Sun, Avq. 2fl.
/If- Triton yesterday spoke of the publication
of the above [Bessie's 'testimony as to Miss An
thony and Mrs. Slantou] in tbo strongest terms.
Said Uo: “ Tbo Committee have dono an un
warrantable injury to two highly respectable
ladies, and have put a blight ou poor
Bessie s name and virtue which she never will
bo rid of. Her testimony is fiction and a
perfect perversion of tbo truth. Tbo scone
which she connects with Miss Anthony’s
name never occurred. Miss Anthony and
Mrs. Stanton were frequently at my bouse.
Elizabeth then was very much interested
in woman suffrage, and she always wel
comed these ladies. Ono evening alter
tea wo wore all in my library, and I
was discussing with Mrs. Stanton tbo rel
ative superiority of tbo sexes. She was full of
wit, and mot my arguments completely. Finally
I said: ‘Mrs. Stanton, I have ono more argu
ment against your theory of tbo equulltv of
sexes. I have never yet met a woman who could
play chess with mo.’ She was ready with an an
swer in a moment, and said that she would en
gage mo in three games to decide the question.
We took the chess-board and played far into tbo
night, poilmps until 1 o’clock, l won the three
games. In the next week’s Revolution, which
Mrs. Stanton edited, she reported tbo games,
and gave the argument that led to it; but

rency about $12,000,000 iu now clrculattng-uotos
of National Banks ready for Issue os soon as
bunks shall have redeemed the lots sent hero by
thim for redemption aud destruction. Those
now ones are intended to take the place of soiled
aud mutilated notes of various banks, and have
accumulated since the now Currency act wont
into operation, two mouths ago. The now
notes can, under existing circumstances,
bo supplied more ropidly than the cler
ical work of redemption can bo discharged,
but this enormous accumulation is at present
attributed to the inadequacy of the clerical force
employed iu the new redemption division of
tbo Treasury, which, though about fairly iu
working order, is not yet sulticioutlv well organ
ized to transact its immense business witu 7s
quislio facility and rapidity. When regularly
begun, Iu ibo course of a few davs, the work of
destruction of old notes aud the replacement
thereof with now notes will progress with satis
factory rapidity. Up to this time, however, there
has been no destruction of ilia worn ami muti

There are intimations that tho trial of Berton,
tho safe-burglar, such as would bo hud if ho re

iiou of some of tho most intimate of tho Presi

It appearn that the notorious John Pope Und

missions on the pay of laborers which ho under
took to collect, but not all. The Cummibioncrs
decided that where ho produces evidence that
the workingmen agioo to let him have hiu com
missions deducted, they must bo paid to him.
As ho has a number of such authorizations given
at tho time ho took tho claims, ho will doubtless

Tho Anarchy In Owen County—Fed
eral and State Troops to Act To
ecther AtrntiiNt tho Ihiwlgn*—allium
tor Lancawlcr to .Enforce Process of
Court—Trouble In llrentliitt County.
Frankfort , liy, (duo. 25), Dfyuttck to the Cincinnati
Commercial,
Your correspondent to-day interviewed Col.
Craddock, Secretary of State, as to tho troubles
in Owen County, now occupying tho attention of
Federal and State troops and local authorities.
His opinion was that tho troubles originated
years ago in a bawdy-house brawl between tho
Smoots and Walkers, and bns since been perpet
uated to tho distress of tho bettor
portion of tho Owon people. Tho Walk
ers and Bussells, combined on one sido
mid tho Smoots on tho other, and no
public gatherings or speakings, nor general as
semblages of tho people could occur that did not
find one or tho other or both parties on hand
fully armed, to tho threatening of tho public
pence. Col. Craddock has a farm in Owen,
wholly unproductive, through tho armed pres
ence of tiio two parties, Decently. tho Walkers
hnvo boon acting under the authority of the
.Federal Government to arrest Ku-Klux, wan
dering about without accomplishing much, amt
Smoot has moved free os au unmolested mur
derer. Col. Craddock thinks that if ton ora
dozen of tho principals on both sides woro to
leavo the country for some other it would bo a
vast gain to society and tho supremacy of law.
Ou tho reception of Hie dispatches from Perry,
County-Atlornov of Owon, Gov. Leslie imme
diately ordered tho mihtla to tho scone to arrest
all disturbers, and give them ovpr to tho Cir
cuit Judge, MoM&nama. who was directed to go
to Oweuton at onto aud open court, impanel
a jury, and try tho culprits, whoever they be.
United Slates Marshal Murran, thinking it his
duty lo protect hisaoputy if improperly inter
fered with, ordered tno Federal troops hero to
bo In readiness to march to Montoroy. The
s onmboat Eureka was detained hero at the
wharf to convov tho troops to the front. A con
sultation in this threatened conflict of Federal
and Stalo authorities was then agreed ou be
tween Gov. Loslio and Gen. Murray.
This was held at tbe Governor’s office to-day,
and after a full exchange of views it was agreed
that both parties should act in concord, and all
persons against whom warrants existed from tbe
Federal Courts bo delivered lo the Federal com
mand, and those against whom tho State Courts
bold warrants bo delivered to tiie militia.
Gou, Murray accordingly loft on tho Eure
ka at 10 o’clock this morning with a force of
about fifty soldiers. Both forces am to arrest
all turbulent persons, aud give them to tho re
spective authorities for trial.
To-day, a dispatch was received, saying that
Willis Bussell was wounded and captured by
Donovan’s company of militia.
Ocn. Hewitt also loft to-day for Lancaster,
with instructions from tho Governor to leavo
Bomo twenty-five to fifty troops at Lancaster to
enforce tho process from Judge Owsley’s Court,
and to (ako the balance on a now and secret ex
pedition, in Another part of tbo Slate. Gen.
Hewitt was reticent as to his destination, but
Col. Craddock slates that it was to suppress tho
feuds in Breathitt County that have prevented
Judge llandall from holding court there.
Gov. Leslie is fully determined to use tho
whole power of the State to put down lawless
ness. Ho will employ militia first, and send
Circuit Judges in their track to hold court in
definitely, aud punish the guilty irrespective of
creed or connections.
