TILTOX-BEMIEB. WANHISUTIIX JT.ir. The Eflrrt or W r. Houllon'a Tonllnio nj Friday firtnn In Ihe lourl. Special to Cincinnati Commercial I Brooklyn. Feb. 1!1. The reaeon my feeling revolted at the evidence (if Friday, which I premium you will publiHh viruultnueouRly wiih Oil dis patch, were not from Dy excitement over its criminatory revelatlttin. There will be different opinion about these, accurdiUK to the liitelllgeui'e, nor and diHcriminatiou with which they are read, and perhaps, aim), ac cording to the prejudices which read ers bring to their perusal. What dm glutted me watt the atmosphere of u-jter-nentiaientalinTi, HurumHry and lu nacy with which all these levelatiotiH were surrounded. To nil all day and hear the lady wit ness tell of Beecher'g weeping and walling, hin remor.xe and Belf-uphrwid-ing, hh Incredible foiillHliiics-s of tongue and demeanor, his ulleRed twaddle, ho mawkish and lint, about kiHiiitr liim Belf, hl wishy-washy (talilile about Elizabeth ar.d Theodore and himself, and his misdeeds, his pitiful poltroon try undfr the daiunatory rlemiltuitv Hons nddresned to turn UiioukIi mo many tnortttl hours, and iu o many delirious intervals by tht lady witiit-Ks I nay that to listen" to these- volumin ous stories was almost intolerulile. 1 felt that the whole tiling whs revolt ing to mv manhood, to Ihe bearded luitnhnod, muscular virtue and cohe rent brain, which some of u.t outflit to possess. It Was NAUHKATINCI IN Til K LAST 1KIUKK( And made my head ache till I ijot away from the sickeniiiK sveneM, and passed out into the hard headed world, where iieoiile were trying to make a few dollars, or drinking their rum or xpauking their dirty habicn, or taking tneir v.'ives toauance. Beecher sat beside his wife all day, listening to the evidence, ami he cer tainly seemed to he as placid as an ele phant. Some of the reporters tell about HEFCHKR'S 1NTEKNAL, KRKN.Y, And purpling face and glaring eyes, and twitching necktie, but these stories, though evidently pleasing to newspaper readers, are allunmitlgated. bosh. They describe Tillon acting like a maniac, and Mrs. needier look ing like a laughing hyena, and Mrs. Tiltou'a streaming eyes and gnashing teeth. All these things itrw in " the mind s eye, Horatio," ol theciazy re liorters, but nowhere else. People whose only knowledge of this trial is derived from some of the pub lished accounts of itmust imagine it to be carried on iu a madhouse, by niu niacs, who are perpetually making faces at each other, and who ultimate their lugubrious lemorse with hideous grins and iudtsrrilia ble contortions. My dispatches oust seem tame to you, wlim jour blood is curdled by some others that are sent from the Beecher trial. It seems lliitt Beecher must possess some remurkuhlc self-sustaining power. Instead of having his liver turned like the rest of us on Friday, he rose at the close of proceedings, chatted and laughed with the people w ho crowded aro'ind him, and is said to have made but one sharp remark to the uncle of the lady who had testified, when he said Unit her evidence had "some truth in its foundation, but was iu effect a lie." Beecher hadn't much more Ihsn time to get through with Ins dinner after the adjournment, when he ap peared at bis KKOUI.AK FRIDAY FUAYKK MKKTI.NO Which was attended by over a thou sand people. All I know about it is from the reports in yesterday's papers, and particularly from the Sun report, which describes him as being iu the best of humor at an old lime -ceue in the famous lecture room. He tang, pruyed, and talked about prayer, with all his felicity of illustration and rich ness of language. He is certainly a psychological phenomenon, hut your readers must judge for themselves whether he Is sustained by the " spir its above or the spirits below."

The Cincinnati Commercial' Wash ington special of the "1st says: The leading Republicans have been in private conference, to-day, upon the sublecl of the caucus to-morrow. The caucus meets to determine the or der of business, in view of the speedy approach or the end of the session, anil the manifest intention of the Demo crats to prevent.

A prominent democratic rsonittor, to-night, slates that the Democrat have generally ag recti that of the pending political measures the follow ing in i tit i r relative order are the most repumutnt to the Democrats, and the outs winch they will especially endeavor to defeat : First, the Civil Bights bill ; second, the President's Arkansas Message ; third, the politi cal, or hubtas corjm bill ; fourth, 1'iiichliack, Kchuiz, in advising with Democratic Senators, says that the seating of l'inchback is a much lesser evil and a belter precedent than the passage of the Kdmunds resolution lor a new election iu Louisiana.

Parlor spelling matches have been quite the rage among the Avondale girls and boys during the past few weeks, and they culminated very pleasantly on Friday evening last, In a spirited contest among the vounir people of the school, at Avon Hall. About forty of the older pupils spelled a thousand words. 1 wo hundred of these were geographical names, two hundred puzzle-words" in common n anil six hundred selected from among tin most difficult m the Sixth Header.

Tills being the special order in the house for eleven o'clock in the morn ing, was taken up, and a speech in its favor of m arly two hours length made by Judge Oardenhire, who is the champion par excellence at the meas ure. The committee on Tippling und TippliiiK-houses, to whom the bill bad been referred, reported iu favor of its rejection, the vote in the committee standing three in favor of the bill and four against it. On taking the tloor, Oardenhire sai.l the friends of the measure propose live propositions. Here his brother representatives set tled themselves lor a long speech, and (lie gentleman from White continued: I'irst 1 hat an ordinance interdict ing the sale of spirituous, vinousor malt Honors ish mere police regulation, and the act of a corporation or district, es- tahlishing such ordinances, is not the exercise ol a legislative function. Second It being a mere police regu latlon, the legislature has full power mid authority to authorize corporations lo prohibit tlie sale of intoxicating drinks. I'hird The legislature may annl hilate the trade iu spirits. It may also onsent lo the sale, either directly, or through such ageuls as may be dtsig nated for that purpose.

Mow Ik liliiMlelphla Worklnarm Nrcnrra UliLllomr. From tho boston Cuinniercial 1 Suppose a workingmnn, receiving y sixty dollars per month, wishes to secure himself at home. Selecting a locality in the outskirts favorable to his business, ha purr ha es a lot from the ground-rent land lord by a written obligation to pay the legal rate per cent interest annually on the principal. So, on a lot purchased for $'J00 only twelve dollars a year whould liata to be jiaid. or for $ -VW only thirty. Asa rule an eligibly situated lot eighteen feat front by ninety doep can be procured for the for mer tigures. .lust as long as this yearly rental is paid the owner can not demand the principal. Having secured his l it, as the next step, the workingman joins a building; associa tion. The nock of these associations is divided into a thousand shares at one dol lar each, and any number of shares from ono to fifty may be taken. Wo will sup pose he purchased five, tin this ho pays an assestmmit of ono dollars share every month. As will bo seen, the sum of $l.(X)u is paid in monthly. At each regular meet ing this money is put ft auction among the members, the ono agreeing to pay the highest premium in addition to the inter est being tho purchaser. Tho money is not at once delivered, however, unless competent security is given, but is kept until the houso (for the payment of which tlie money is needed) is erected cm which a mortgage is taken. If $1(0 is paid as a premium, it is added to the face of the note, which is made to run for $1,UM in stead ol CI, PUD. .s', without really paving out nny money, he gets his land and his house, and has tho satisfaction ol'konwing thHt as long as the lntere-t is promptly paid no power can dispossess him. I,et us see lint the interest would amount to. and how it will compare with averngo rentals. We will suppose that he pays twelve dollars, ground rent per an num, sixty-six dollars ; taxes, twenty dol lars: making a total of liiutv-riulit dollars licsiUf this, is the monthly payment to tne association ol tne stock assessments, amounting to sixty dollars annually, wincn is applied to tho payment it tne principal. As all the prohts are divided among the stocmioldors, and as money is sold evry month, sonio times atdoutile tho premium wo have mentioned besides the accruing in terest, it will be rendilv seen that tho bor rower is entitled to a perpetual dividend. It would take him nearly nineteen years, paying his interest and sixty dollars per year to take up his mortgage, but in reality, he often finds himself in absolute possession of his home, freo from incumbranco.in half that time. or Vt liat Ibe De frnae laTaald lo tblak TIHOD'a Testimony.
