IT is reported that great ef
forts will be made at the
Convention nominating a State
representative at large for this
district to influence the mem
bers in favor of worn out politicians ,
who haven't the confidence of the
party in their own county and de
sire a place upon the ticket upon
grounds of sympathy. We hope
that the members will not allow
themselves to be influenced in that
way. The Republican party can
not afford to be loaded down with
any dead wtishts or dead beats.
LINCOLN will to-day be crowded
with politicians from all portions of
the State , aad by to-morrow con
jectures as to the comparative
strength of candidates and proba

cheif contestants for Congressional
honors will be Welch and Crounse ,
with a prospect of the former with

A party of six surveyors from

Geneial Davidson , commanding

announcing his arrival at that place
from Anadarko , with 350 people ,
Camanches , of the band at Iron
Mountain. One of the chiefs gave
up hU arms to General Davidson ,
and when ho surrendered the other
people were collected and brought
into the agency.
WHITE RivEuJuNcriONSept. 1.
The vote to-day was light , except
in the Second Congressional Dis
trict ( Poland's ) , where there is a
bolt. At midnight reports from
only seventy-two towns , represent
ing one-third of the State , on a full
ballot. Not for a score or more of
years have voters beensorefractorj' ,
or voting so irregular. The bolt in
the Second Congressional District is
a serious one , and has probably re
sulted in no choice.
BURMNQTON , Sept. 1.
The result of the election in this
city is badly mixed. The city gives
the State Republican ticket 93 ma
jority only , and a large plurality for
the ticket for State Senators , but
elects Smalley , democrat , to the leg
islature by 86 majority. This is the
flrsi democrat elected to legislature
from Burlington since 1853. The
regular county ticket in Chittcndon
id probably elected , although there
was a heavy temperance bolt pn a
portion of Uyj ticket.
JEFFERSONVILI.E , IND. , Sept. 1.
The citizens of Honryville , Ind. ,

7 YORK , September 1.
Thoadvaucesheets of the Chris
tian Union , of which Henry Ward
Beecher is editor , of September 2d ,
have been received by the agent of
the Pacific Press Association. The
leading article under the caption of
"Plain Words , " is devoted to a re
view of the Plymouth Church con
troversy. Until now the Christian
Union has refrained from comment
upon the subject , and the article is
written in the absence of Mr. Beech
er , without his knowledge , and upon
the responsibility of his associates.
It opens by a reference to an ar
raignment as a libertine and hypo
crite , and says the proofs of the
charge consists in the personal alle
gations of Tilton and Moulton , Mrs.
Tilton's alleged confession resting
wholly on the words of Tiltoii and
Moulton , and so is the implication
of certain of .beecher's letters , to
which he assigns a wholly different
meaning. It compares Beecher's
well known public life and
labors for past years with the state
ment and charges now put forth and
held up that Beecher is a debauchee
and hypocrite , hence there is noth
ing in human character to be trust
ed and all faith of man in man is
delusion. Referring to the evidence
in the case it considers that the
statements of Mr. and Mrs. Tilton
and Moulton should not outweigL
that of Beecher. They have told
two wholly different storips , while
Beecher alone has said always the
same thing. The real evidence
against the accused , and only real
strength which the accusation has
ever had with the proof , consists in
Beecher's own letters. His expla
nations made to the committee seem
inadequate. These letters were the
result of Beecher's sensitiveness.
The public have believed him
to be a man of coed sense
of courage , sagacity arid excellent
judgment. His own statement ,
when favorably read , shows him to
have fatally prred in his judgment
of character to have been thrown
completely off his balance , in
den crisis to have trusted his most
vital interests to a counselor who he
must have known to be a fussy In-
termedler , and who , in fact , proved
his enmity. The statement disclo
sed a severity of self-judgment
which was morbid , and a leniency
toward others which was irrational.
In shorl.on Beecher's own showing ,
in the greatest crisis of his life , he
acted with want of wisdom that is
to kll astonishing. Beecher's repu
tation for wisdom has cost his mor
al reputation dearly ; it'js dlffieujt to
credit him with so much folly that
it leads some to credit him with
falsehood. It has been Beecher's
fortune , in the matter , to
worst things in
him broughf fully ijeiorp the public.
Utterances pf his njost private
moods , to his most trusted friend ,
have been given to the world. Rath
er , from a ultltude of such utter
ances , those which were least cred- .
itablo. which sprung from the low
est moods of a mercurial tpmpera-
ment , have been selected and placed
in their worst light , and the burden
of explanation thrown upon. Beech
er. 'These wserp ptlerancps of a man
at his most unguarded moment , pre
served by treachery , and " first given
to $0'world in.thp . light"of the most
distorting shape. Jt then rpfprs to
the apology signed by Beecher ,
though hehad never written or read
It ; to his contrition at thought of a
wrong he had done Tilton , by de I
priving him of a situation and giv
ing ad vice ; and to his dread of dis
aster , not only to himself , but to the
Tiltons , and to public morality and
decpnoy as explanatory of hjs out >
burst of grjef , sef-reproach } and sorrow

says all these things though they
may be forgotten or misunderstood
in the tumult of the present , and

be made noble in the eyes of the
world , a man who made many mi. -
take's , bu never erred ignobly , a.
who held himself turoueU Plire and "
upright , the friend of man and ser
vant of God.
Captain Duncan , president of the
Sailors' Savings bank on Cherry
street , and a prominent member of
Plymouth Church , and formerly
superintendent of Sunday Schools
a warm admirer and supporter of
Beecher , has written a letter to
Moulton endorsing his course and
expressing respect and sympathy
for him. It is reported that other
prominent members are going to

WASHINGTON , Sept. 1.
The outbreaks which have , in the
last two or three weeks , occurred in
different parts ot the South are ot
such a serious character as to attract
the attention and consideration of
the government authorities. Every
mail brings to the department let
ters relating to the violence to citi
zens , and in some instances , exten
ding to the utter destruction of pro
perty and threatening of life. The
Attorney General has received let
ters giving an account of the recent
murderous outrage in Tennessee.
An examination of many of these
letters show the fact that although
some of the letters are inspired by
fears or prejudices of the whites ,
they in the main correctly represent
the state of feeling and a sense of
the insecurity in the various sec
tions of the South.
To-day there are quite a large
number of leading Republicans
from Arkansas , Alabama , Georgia ,
and South Carolina , in the city.
They confirm the reports of disorder
and Jonal disturbance which come
from their States , and nearly all ex
press the opinion that in order to
preserve peace , it will be necessary
for the go\-ernment to distribute
troops throughout the. disaffected
districts. It may be stated on the
highest authority , that , although
all due attention is being given to
this matter by the government , any
steps it may determine to l&ke will

careful consideration of all the cir
cumstances/and if it is decided that
troops are necessary , they will be
sent under such Instructions as will
oouflue them to that duty , and noth
ing that can be construed into a
political u eve , TbQ Attorney Gen
eral has not left for Long Branch to
consujt wjth''the ' President1 in ths
matter , but may d.6 so on thp return
of the President from the East. It
is believed in official circles that the
better classes in the South do not
ipprove of these outrages , or have
been Jn any way connected with
