Contrary to expectation the game

LONDON , August 3.
It N rumored that the postal con
vention has been concluded between
France and the Carlists. The report
that Germany had sent a notice to
France protesting against violation
of the Spanish frontier and threat-
ning intervention , is pronounced
to be without foundation.
The Hou % of Ixirds- , yesterday

made by the House of Commons
to the public worship regulation
bill , granting parishioners the right
of appeal to an Arch Bishop in
the ca"-e a Bishop refuses to author

Mr. Holmes , an engineer of the
steamboat Pat Rogers that was
burned at Aurora , gives the follow
ing account of the disaster :
It was about 8 o'clock when just
opposte Loughry creek , a stream
which flows into the Ohio two miles
below Aurora , I noticed a bright
light among some bales of cot
ton in the back part of the boat and
hastened to them , and I found them
burning rapidly , and beyond any
possibility of immediately extin
guishing them. I then hastened to
the hurricane deck , and gave the
alarm to the pilot that the boat w as
burning.and told him to run ashore.
He tried to do so , but she became
unmanageable. He thinks the till
er rope had been cut , and from this
fact it is believed that the fire was
the work of an incendiary , Another
theory is that a passenger dropped a
spark of the from a pipe into the
When the boat became unman
ageable she drifted on a sand bar ,
and the flames , spread along the
lower deck and shot through the
cabin to the pilot house , and then
swept acre s the hurricane deck.
The passengers were all aroused and
many of them were carried to the
shore , but others in their fright
jumped overboard into the water ,
and those who were not drowned
reached .safe landing places , but
> oiiicof them drifted a long time
in the current. There were about
one Hundred people on board , but
what proportion of this number
were really lost is not known at this
time , as many reported missing have
been seen onshore after the disaster
file particulars of the disaster to
the steamer Pat Rogers , near Au
rora , Tn'l. , are "oniing in slowly.
About five o'clock this morning
some bales of cotton forming a part
of lier cargo , got on fire , and the I
boat with all its contents , consist
ing of cattle , sheep and hogs , were
burned to the water's edge , and is
a total Io-s. AH the books and the
passenger register are lost. The boat

BROOKLYN , August 5 ,
Tillon's action in bringing his
case bsfore the courts is favorably
commented on as the most satisfac
tory way such a case can be ad
justed. His oounspj ypstorday said
the reason for his aptjon was that
the Plymouth Investigating : t'oui-
mitte was a farce. It was ridiculous
to think that they could try Beecher
without bias , as they are all his own
personal hjeuds , Lojdes they have
not the power to summon witnesses
and poiijpel them to qpne'ar and
testify , ftenpe thejj. wprji niust be
imperfect anfj unsatisfactory.
They havp been tljscourtcous to
Tilton , who should bp prpspnt at

tions. His coxm&el is confident that

The Argus publishes an interview
held with Mr. Moulton , who re
turned to Brooklyn yesterday.
Moulton said that although be had
heard an invitation had been sent
to him to appear before the Investi
gating Committee , he had not
received any invitation. He de
clared he was ready to go before
the committee , if Beecher and Til-
ton requested it. He said he had
not received a letter from Beecher ,
asking him to go before the com
mittee and testify , although he had
received his mail regularly. He still
adheres to the opinion that he ex
pressed to the committee , that the
matter should have betn compro
mised. He regretted that the in
vestigation had been commenced.
He also expressed regret at the
present situation , but said that the
affair had now reached such a pass
that all the facts must come out.
He was now here In time to testify ,
if his evidence should be requested
by both Beecher and Tilton.
The Brooklyn Eagle publishes
a lengthy interview with Moulton
in which Moulton declined posi
tively to give any information re
garding letters said to be in his pos
session , or whether they were reallj
in his possession. He also said tlia
he would not go before the commit
tee , nor make "any revelations to
that body , unless upon the'writtei
request of both Beecher and Tilton
and that he wouli avoid speaking
as long as possible ; but if Beecher
and Tilton insist upon it , he will go
forward and speak the truth , and
the whole truth. He has been hon
ored with Ihe friendship and confi
dence of both. The trouble arose
between them , and he as a gentle
man and friend undertook to serve
both by bringing about a reconcilia
tion. He looked upon their fami
lies as certainly Innocent of any
wrong , but they were sure to suffer
by any open hostilities , and that for
their sake , if for no other reason ,
peace ought to be preserved. He
was also convinced that irrespective
of right or wrong in the matter ,
both Beeeher and Tilton would ,
of necessity , suffer , and could not by
any possibility gain anything by
having their difficulties diagged be
fore the public for arbitration. On
these beliefs he had acted , and he
felt time his present duty WHS tq re
main silent. In answer to a question
whether he thought his testimony
would injure Tilton , he said , "Not
until I testify shall it be known who
my tp tlinony vjll help or hurt. "
The Eagle also says that one of the
witnesses examined last night was a
livery stable keeper , who told about
IrivingTilton and Moulton , with a
short-haired woman , down to Coney
[ sland , and related Incidentsof their
bathing at that place , and of the
wine dinneis followed. The
shoi t-haireu wmian supposed to
) e Mrs. Woodluill. One of the
Committee , accouling to the Eagle ,
says that after Tilton had finished
reading his statement he was asked
f lie had the oiiginal documents
vith him , A\hen he answered tbat
le had not ; that some were at his
louse , and the remainder were in
Moulton's posspssion. He has made
our distinct promise * , 'at diflerqnt
imes1 , to pi od uce the 'documents ,
not one of which he has produced ,
and up to the present time he haslet
lot produced a sjngla one of the
original letters- , from which ho as
sumes to quote. With regard to the
rumored postponement of Becchei's
examination before the Committee ,
this gentleman said they were not
willing for Beecher to testify until
all effort had been exhausted to ob
tain the docujneijts fron ) Mquton | ,
' ' '
and as'M'ouIfo'ri is'now In town , it is
hoped the delay will not be Jong.
Bowen arrived from AVoodstock ,
Conn. , Tuesday , but positively de
clined to give any lufoimatlon as to
his intentions.
The New Y < > rk Grnnhic publishes
a rumor , thNafternooj } , that Beech
er is to resign from Plyniouth
Church and become the editor of a
Republican paper in New York ; in
fact , that the manager has had an
interview with Beecher qnd he now

The cross-examination of Mrs.

investigation pommlttpe was given
to the prpss last night. The ex
amination took place on the 31st of
July , ami was conducted by Mr.
Hill. The following is a synopsis of
the first portion of her evidence and
a recital of her early married life :
She was married in 1803 , and did
not receive much attention from her
husband , butshe excused this , as
she told him she did not expecthim
to devote himself to her Avhen ehe
was sick. 'He'was'so inditferent
that he was frequently upbraided by
uer mother , ami nurse , He was
very extravagant , and then abused
lier when lie had to pay a bill. He
insulted her in public and apologized
in private. The first thing that dis
turbed her peace of mind was her
this was about I860. Prior to 1869 ,
rheodore had criticised her conduct ;
lier mannpr to every one was a
trouble to jiim. . Wb.on sb'e'livfd In
dxford , in 1865 , Theocjore began to
talk of Beecher's wrong doings with
ladles , whjoh Tjltqn had heard from
i Mr. , and night affer night
ind day after day lip talked about
Beeohw ; he seemed to bo worried
MI that subject , so that when
Beeoher came Tilton Immediately
jegan to have suspicions. Whenever
Beecher's interviews were with her
done she made memorandurrs ana
epeated all the conversation to her '
lus and. . TJltou watehejljierclosp-
y and questioned her regarding
2\ery gentleman that called , but
jspecially regarding Beecher. Some-
ines ) In ponyp'rsation ho would
] \ro\v qut sonie , remark made by >
Beecher on some previous vis-it , and
rheodore would say , "you didn't
el ] me That , " and she would reply ,
'I fprgot } t ; " thpn he would pay ,
'You dian't mean to tejl me. " Slip
: ried for over three years to repeat
o her husband everything she said
) r did , but found it made him more
uispieious , accusing her of Inten-
4onal ommlssions in using the ex-
Dresslon "you lie. " His manner
ivas passionate and angry. His
; ridcisms and suspicions have con-
inued up to the present day. It
.vas in the spring of 1869 that her
msband openly accused her of
I guilty intimacy with Mr ,
Beecher , and in his letters
ie also made the accusation ,
She had invariably denied it , but
jls evident intention and desire was
o bring her to such a state that she
ivould acknowledge some wrong.
\11 his Influence In conversation
yas exerted in this direction. He
ivonld read the Bible and ask her
igaln and again , "IVhat do yon
r Icoketh
upon a worn an , &e. , ' ? " He would
discourse upon this subject nearlj-
whole .night. In makingthesealle-
gations he would often say , " You
will not den } ' tlmt you have
had criminal intercourse , "
and in this way tried to frighten
her. He also pretended to have
seen certain things , and accused
her once or twice of sitting ii :
Beecher's lap. This she denied , bu
by this continued talk year in and
year out she came to become quite
indifferent , except as regarding her
anxiety for Tilton ; she was worn
and sick of it. Up to this time his
accusations related only to Beecher ,
but about 1870 he began to think her
admiration extended to others , and
spoke of two or three gentlemen ac
quaintances. In his charges , even
respecting Beecher , he never
named any definite time or place or
any criminal act , nor did ho pre
tend that she had been guilty of any
impropriety at Beeoher's house , and
she had never mei Beecher at any
place by appointment. Tilton , in
his public statement , based an accu
sation against her upon the inter
view she had with Beecher in her
second story room , which he claims
Aas admitted by her. This she de
nied. She also denied making any
admission to her husband in July ,
1S70 , of any act of impropriety with
Becclier. Regarding her conversa
tion with Tilton in July , 1870 , or
thereabouts , on that subject , Mrs.
Tilton stated that she not made a
confession similar to that made by
Catherine Gaunt , but had said many
things in many conversations , out
of which there might have been
gathered up such a story. She had
read Catherine Gaunt , to ascertain
the point , and writing to her hus
band from Scholmrie , felt that it
reached her case , andVrote herhtis-
band accordingly. She had not
thpn read thp book through and had
uo thought or reference to adultery.
