Tilton has written the Plymouth
Church investigating committee a
letter, in answer to that by Beecher,
requesting them to investigate Til
ton's allusions against his character.
It says that the wnter was unaware
that this committee was a private
one, when he met them by appoint
ment last Friday, and having been
advised to preserve reticence about
the fforst features of the case, he
had done so in order to facilitate a
moderate presentation . of Mr.
Beecher's ollense and apology, and
close the scandal rather than pro
long it; so he had merely stated at
that time that his letter to Dr. Ba
con was written in self defence, and
that having defended himself
thereby, he was unwilling to pro
ceed further against Mr. Beecher
without further provocation. The
letter concludes as follows:
"Such necessity is now laid upon
me by Mr. Beecher himself, in the
publication of a direct request by
him to you to inquire officially into
his character, as affected by his of
fence and apology, to which I re
ferred. He thus offers me a direct
challenge, not only before your com
mittee, but beforo the public, which
Thereby accept. I therefore give
you notice that I shall prepare a full
and detailed statement, in accord
ance with tli3 terms of your com
mittee's invitation to me, to furnish
such facts as are within my knowl
edge, touching matters Mhich com
promise the character of Rev.
Henry "Ward Beecher. I shall
be ready to lay this beforo you
within a week or ten days, or so
soon thereafter as I shall find my
wlfnhlp tn pet numerous facts and
evidences in such strict array that I
can cover them eacli and all witn
I mv oath to their exact truth, sworn
before a magistrate. I await an ap
pointment by j-ou of a day mutual
ly convenient for 1113 presentation
of this statement in person before
your committee ; meanwhile Ishall
make public my present note to
you, because Mr. Beecher's letter, to
whtoh (his is a preliminary response,
has been made public by him. "With
great respect, J am,
Boston, July 3.
Details are coming in of the sec
ond flood in Hampshire county-,
caused by the breaking of reservoirs,
situated on Middlefield brook, emp
tying Into tl e west branch of the
"Westfield river. It covered nearly
a hundred acres, and was built Su
j-ears ago, but wus considered safe.
It supplied a large number of stock
and other mills, and its breaking
will deprive these of power for a
longtime. The heaviest loser by
the flow is Dr. Hernan Lucius, who
loses 310,000 by the partial submerge
ing of his emery mill. Tne nernan
Edge Tool Company's water power
is destroyed. A large number of
farms and gardens were inundated.
Many of the vajjpy resjdents were
compelled to leave thejr hmps
Several houses floated off. The
town of Chester suffers most heavi
lv, having lost bridges and suffered
from the washing away of roads.
To replace the bridges will cost
$10,000, besides several thousand
dollars to repair the roads.
The Boston and Albany railroad
Is very badly damaged for a dis
tance of " nvenjy wiles. Every
bridge between Mlddle'field and
Huntington is wholly or partly de
stroyed. The road bed Is also
washed out in many places, and
travel between this city and Al
bany will be suspended for several
days, TliP wires are stjll down be

says of the flood r About twelve
years ago the seoohd reservoir was
built three miles further up the
stream by Church brothers. Ihls
was smaller than the lower one,
covering fifty to eighty acres. Tbe
upper esfiryojr broke away first,
and swept over tfie loWr r??rvoir
with Immense volume, making a
breach of about four rods In tbe
highway. The dam of the upper
reservoir was built of earth, and the
whole dam suddenly gave way.
Harry Meachaia was at the reservoir
and speedily waniejl the people at
Blush Hollow. ' H)s warnipg aud
the fact that but a part of the Jower
reservoir dam gave way prevented
loss of life and also very much
lessened the damages done. The
Boston fc Albany Railroad suffers
heavily. At Middlefield switch tbe

this was nearly undermined, but

structures were more or less serious

suffered also. The road bed is now
a torrent. Nobody appears to be
missing. At the latest accounts the
total loss to the individuals and
town of Chester, is estimated at
$25,000. The total loss, the latest
figures give us 350,000.

The Solicitor General, In an opin
ion addressed to the Secretary ot
War, in regard to the late act of
Congress, which provides that no
monies shall be paid to any railroad
company or the transportation of
any property or troops of the United
States over any railroad which, in
whole or in part, was constructed h
the aid of grants of publje lands, on
conditon that such railroad should
be used as a'public" highway for the.
use ot the government, free from
halts or any charges ; or, upon any
other condition, fur tle use of
such road for.' sucji trapspxrtar
Uon. The f'act still further
provides that any such road may
bring suit in the court of claims, for
charges for such transportation, and
recovering for tbe same, if found en
titled thereto, by virtue of laws In
force priotto this act. The Solici
tor Opiieral. in his opinion, says the
the distinction drawn by the above,
is founded upon the presence or ab
sence'' In sucli land grants, not of
conditions in general, but of certain
sorts of conditions, viz: Those for
the use of s'unb roMs j reference to
legislation, under which, especially
within1 the last ten years, land
grants have been made to Railroad
companies' shows, in connection
with the above question, that such
grants may be divided into three
classes. First, cases In which one
form of expression or another free
transportation is expressly stipula
ted. Becopf, oasps, jn wbjpH foq:
ditions of preference In transporta
tion, or ordinary rates of transpor
tation, or of average rates, &c, are
all that have been expressly im
posed. Third, cases where no con
dition's fqruse of said road Jjy tlie
Government have been impos
ed,"" In my opinion there can be no
question that first one included
within and third one txoiuded from
operation of aot, June 10th, 1874,
ouoted above third class. It Is a
very small one, and probably exists
bvan Inadvertauce of the If -tme'Ml
as Congress hasljmlted the
above prohibition to cases qf gov
ernments! upon any other condi
tions'for the use of such road, there
hfsrlno- bean no such conditions at-
-tached and are not included. I am
of the omnlon that cases un-
'der the seeond class are jncjuqed
within the pronibiuon, -tnuecu,
this is the -only class upon which
the act has any effective operations
for the first class is already ex
cluded frorn payment by the very
acts which'grant and, as has been
recognized by the department of
war heretofore. A consideration of
the passage abovp brings me to the
conclusion that it was tbe Jnteption
of Congress to make no appropria
tion at tbe present for any case
"where the original grant may have
left to them control of the question,
and further by a comprehensive ex
pression to remit all questions as to
the extent of that control to the
court of claims. Congress has
'said, as is were, waiving all ques
Hon qf qpjlg&tpri oi-uc vunv.
States 'to pay companlfs where land
grants contain any conditions for
thpjr road, until a decision by the
Court of Claims, we hereby direct
that po part of this appropriation
shall be used to pay suoh ejaiins,
and it seems to me, that in so doing
Congress has only resorted to a
method of raising and deeding such
questions that as usual
among parties to business
transactions, that are con-
trolled by the rules of law that are
obscure. In the mean time, what the
Quartermaster General has to do, is
rto maintain the issuo which Con
gress 'has directed in regard to rail
road porpqrattons having conditions
for the use of their roads, Incorpor
ated hato their land grants, uutil the
courts shall havp settled it.
