st nlfifitt regarding the outrage at
Red River parish has been fully

The Beecher-Tilton scandal re
mains in the same condition as yes
terday. To-day has brought forth
no new developments , nor has any
further statements appeared , except
a long letter written" by Rev. Dr.
Pattou , of Chicago , dated August
27th , to Mr. Sage , chairman of the
committee , in answer to an invita
tion to Mr. Patton to appear and
testify before the committee. Mr.
Patton details his knowledge of the
charges against Beecher , but his
statement contains nothing new.
Moul ton's statement it is under
stood will be given to the public to

and it will appear after Moulton's.

The Independent will publish to
morrow , under the head of "Mr.
Moulton , " a letter from Dr. Bacon ,
otNew Haven , the ex-moderator of
the Conjjregational council. The
letter contains strictures of the se
verest character on Moulton in his
capacity of a mutual friend. Dr.
Bacon says that three years ago the
entire budget , very much as given
in Tilton's statement , was laid be
fore him by men of high standing ,
who unfortunately knew nothing
about the matter save what others
told them. He then , for the first
time , heard of Frank Moulton. In
the absence of proof or a show of it ,
he refused to withdraw bis confi
dence from Beecher or to charge his
memory with the details of this
very painful story , which he
knew would sooner or
later become public. He was then
impressed with the conviction ,
which afterwards grpw ( stronger ,
that whoever might be the dupe or
yictim , and whatever the result
might be in regard to Beecher or
any other parties interested in the
mutual friend , woujt } b § exposed as
the chief of the'plot. . Whether
Beecher's charge that Moulton has
for years been the chief actor Ju a
base conspiracy is trup or not , a
cording to Moulton's own story , he
deserves the reprobation and scorn
of all honest me , though he seems
too deficjeut jn moral sense to know
it. In each of the two stories ttyore
is an apparent conspiracy the one
is against Beecher's peaeo of minei ,
against hisreputatlon , his usefulness ,
his family and his church , and
against a weak and helpless woman ,
to disgrace her and her chfdren ;
the other is in conspiring to conceal
a crime which ought to have been
exnosed and published.
Dr. Baqon denounces ' Mqujton
in strong language for'his attempts
to avert the investigation , and says
that even when the public scandal
had become so great that Beecher
called for a thorough Investigation ,
Tilton had responded by giving all
the details of his story to the world ;
when a thousand newspapers were
calling on Moulton to produce the
doqunjents eaid to beir \ his possfcs-
sion. and supposed to be decisive ,
thU peace maker was man ellously
unable to see anything Jn the casp
ether than a personal difficulty be
tween Beecher and Tilton. With
an assurance born of perfect uncon-
ciousness , he urged the commit
tee to accept his views of
the c as ? to &ettteit by a. compromise.
Only Jet us have a compromise by
which"Beecher an'd Tilton shall be
good friends again , and all will be
well , Burejy we have "ft Daniel
come to judgment" in tte person of
Mr. Moulton. What he prposps is ,
that the man who , according to his
story , is a thorough profligate , lead
ing captive silly women , shall re
tain his position and all his influ
ence by coming to terms with The
odore Tilton. In a rough outline ,
the case as it now stapes js ths } :
On the one sjdp wp have Tilton's
story and Moulton's , on the other ,
Mrs. Tilton's and Beechor's. Thou
sands of us , while waiting for
other testimony , confide In
Henrv Ward Beecher more than in
Frank , and In poor Elizabeth more
than Theodore. Yet we say , better
were it for society , better for Chris-
tianity. huttpr fqr Plymouth church
and "all Its famih'e ? , better for
Beecher himself , that being guilty
he is cast down into shame and si
lence than that he be permitted by
any connivance or forbearance on
the part of hs } f riehfis to retain his
hgh | ppsHJon. The letter was dated
