Separation of Tilton and His Special Despatch to The Boston NEW It was supposed when the committee was appointed to investigate tho differences between Beecher and that the evidence would be kept secret and not allowed to be a matter of public rumor and But it seems that some of the have leaked and there be no harm in stating what has transpired before the The whole case is full most painful surprises and revelations and the last peculiar phase of the invest Ration is to the effect that Theodore Tilton has appeared before the committee without her husbands and given testimony which in favorable to Henry Ward Tho rumor is that who supposed he acted magnani in her as well as in that of the pastor of Plymouth was entirely under a delusion on the and that the separation which hts friends advised when when the scandal broke out has now taken with a prospect for an immediate suit for It further appears that when Tilton appeared before the committee ho at first declined to make specific charges against as he claimed that all he had to do was to vin his own good name without doing to as the case pro it has become apparent that the whole of tho first made public by must be thoroughly ven Bowen has been cited to before tho and Woodhull has offered to come forward and state her knowl edge of certain facts nnd how she obtained It is stated by Beechers friends that there is to be a funeral in this but that it will not be that of Beecher hut a different His it ap amounts to this That Tilton liad been guilty of repeated most of which came the knowledge of his wife that she had been stung almost to madness by these infidelities and his constantly manifested want of consid for her that in this excited frame of mind she sought counsel of her Beecher that the latter impulsively took her side of the and urged her to procure divorce from Theodore Tilton that Beecher in the affair a great deal more than he should have and that subsequently learning from Tilton that at of Tiltons charges were he wrote that contrite letter to a part of which the latter has so effectively used to put in the attitude of a criminal suing for whereas he was simply expressing poignant sorrow for having imprudently interfered in a A very important personage in this case is Frank He has always acted as a friend and confidant of both par and has up to this to compose the difference between But Tiltons letter to Bacon was published his and it is thought that ho now decidedly inclines to the Beecher It is understood that there are other oases be sides this of Tiltons to come
