jSrvvORIC , August 12.
Thesituation regarding theBeech-
er scandal is in the same unsatisfac
tory uncertainty as yesterday.
Moulton'd statement is still with
held from the public , and the reports
regarding its probable publication
are very contradictory. Some who
pretend to be authority on the sub
ject say it will be given to the press
only after Beechcr's testimony is
rendered , and others say that it will
le withheld entirely , jis a compro
mise of the controversy is now un
der consideration and still others
that it will be given to the news
papers this afternoon' . Xothing
po itive is known'andall is specu
It is said that Moul ton's lengthy
document which the committee did
not accept , is as strong against
Beecher as Mr. Tilton's sworn state
ment. A friend of Moulton's says
he won't give it up unless the pre-
goards it out of him. It is death-
dealing paper , and if Moulton gives
it up for publication , he will be Mr.
Beecher's assassin. Moulton says
he has nothing further to say in the
matter , and that the committee and
him are done with each other.
Beecher's statement before the
committee to-night is anxiously
looked for in hope that it \ \ ill clear
the mystery in which the whole
matter is now involved. Xews-
papers comment somewhat crimi
nally on the sudden change in the
course of tactics in withholding evi
dence now after giving publicity to
previous testimony , and icfer to
hints at compomise in severe terms.
There appears to be a gem-mi be
lief that strenuous efforts are being
made to settle the matter quietly by
the movements of the parties inter
ested , and the private confab ? be
tween the counsel on both sides
seems to confirm the belief that those
in a position to know , and declines :
to be interrogated on this point.
Mrs. Tilton , when asked if she ever :
would return to Irev husband said :
"If-Theodore comes to me on his :
knees , and solemnly proves to me
that he will never .falsely accuse me
again , and hush this slander for the
sake of my children , I will return
to him. if not , I Will never want to ;
look at his face agajn. "
One of the committeem.en say }
Beechor will lay hjs statement be
fore the committee to-day and be
examined. On sermon writing and
the preparation of his lectures , it is
well known , Beecher has a decided ,
dislike to prolonged labor Aith his
pen , and he has shown the same :
characteristic in thp piysent caso.
Instead of preparing -written state
ment , article by article , ho has dic
tated , or lather declaimed , his de
fense to a stenographer , who wrote
notes and subniitted them to T\epph- \ }
er for GQrreoUoii. Three suph copies
have been made aiid destroyed , and

last pvening t Beecher's house ,
continuing tiU'one o'clock ,
Beecher's statement will be

all the points of evidence heretofore
elicited to Insure this result. Xotes
from the stenographer have been >
given to Beecher this evening. A
large portion of the'statement will
be devoted to letters in Tilton's
charges , and a full explanation of
them will be given.

Mr. Moulton said this morning
that his statement would not be pre

fused to answer as to when it would
be given out. §
General Tracj' was met going to
Mr. Shearmen's housje. He said
that he had ne idea when Moulton's
statement would be given to the
press , but he thoughtlt Avould not
be until Beecher had testified , when
both would be given.
It is believed that Itfr. Beecher

SPRIXOFIELD , 111. , August 12.
The" old-line D'emocfacy of the
States are not pleased with the call
for a hybrid convention recently is
sued by the clique of compromisers
headed by McCormick , of Chicago ,
as chairman , and tailed by Ed.
Mcrritt , of Springfield , as secretary.
Mr. Joseph Ledlie , of this city , wag
chosen as the chairman of the
straight-out Democratic State Cen
tral Committee in 1872 , when the
regulars were fighting against a co
alition with disaffected members
and disappointed office-seekers of
the Republican party , for the pur
pose of defeating the regular Repub
lican ticket. It is claimed by the
regulars that the time-seivinpf bol
ters of the Democratic party went
out of the party when they'madean
agreement to vote for a Ijiopublican
for President , and by that act they
forever placed themselves without
the pale of the party , beyond recall.
Mr. Lediie , therefore , asserts his
right as chairman of the State Dein-
cratic Central Commutes , to call a
State Convention , to meet at Spring-
geld on the 2oth of August , the
bame day on which the hybrid con
vention \\111 meet , to take such ac
tion and make such nominations as
therepcesentativcsof the pure Dem-
crats of the State may in their wis
dom see lit.
Telegrams , received from numer
ous ojd-line Democrats , give in
their adhesion to the straight-out
Democratic movement , am } prom
ise hearty co-operation. Among the
many communications are tele
grams from General Singleton and
Colonel AY. A. Richardson , of r
Quiucy , who spoke inery uncom
plimentary tcims of the ( 'mulatto
jonvention , " as thejcajl the Iles-
ing-Whito affair of the 2Gth inst
The communications ali denounce
Ihe action of the pretending Demo
cratic State Central Committee in
Celling out to He ing , in abandon fl
ing the name of the party , and nni-
ting with the fag-ends of all parties
in the hope of picking up a few fall
ing crumbs. They all express a
lirm determination to fight the old
light for the principles which they
iold even though they be defeated.
From present indications it is safe
o predict that the straight-out par-
y will have a pretty lair repreaeiua-
ion at their convpption.
