Washington feb. 23.tbe undersigned a majority the committee the aute the South respectfully report that they can not agree to the report made to the committee by Masr. H a Wheeler and Frye. The Law inimical to the coloured people Louisiana referred to in this report have been repealed for year except daring the chm gov. War Moth in 1872. The Republican party Gnu Long bad control the machine the state. The state registration shows an exc Faa the coloured Over the White voter giving 90,781 coloured to 76,823 White. In the absence any direct evidence that the late election waa not free and fair the Assumption the minority that enough Colora voter must therefore be been prevented from voting at the late election by the recollection the Colfax and Coua Halu killing the Csom and circumstance which Are disputed and by other riots which occurred year before to have changed the result the election throughout the state is an Assumption mgt violent when it 1 recollected that both these parishes elec de the full Kellogg ticket by an increase i re publican majority As not to be received it any other causes Lor the vote the state can be found. Snob Causee exist and Are obvious. Among them Are first the registration was incorrect and exceeded the True coloured vote. The registration was wholly in the hand it the Kellogg official with them at the Polle the 3d december 1874. The people then elected to the lower House their legislature a majority cor9krvattvr members. A portion the conservative members thus elected were refused their certificates. This la in act great injustice to individuals and the greatest danger to the state and free government and ought to be immediately corrected to any Power competent to Correct it. The Resolution recommending the recognition gov. Kellogg is based upon the general impression not upon evidence. On Thia Oil not Almony was taken either by the committee any part it. Kell it org May May not have been elected in 1872, but there i no evidence to Abow the fact if there be it has been neither sought nor found by Tbs committee. Mezere. Foster and Phelps think that popular better taking both the Horn a Republican committee with united8utte marshal Packard at to boil head co Oft be met that they know nothing rated. In Only three Pari he did Tho f Republic super visor inf registration make any complain unfair inborn cirt Reo tal ration. On the other band very great complain i waa Nide by the conservatives who specified with proof 5,200 in conceded alas registration in new Orleans Stone and those conserva be who bad Boon cooperating in the joint party committee to secure a Lair registry Ion vet it a in despair. The census 1870, correctness which la not Ira reached owed 87,070 White and 86,913 coloured mate Over Twenty one years age. All the statistic Anc evidence before a indicate no change in their proportion in favor the coloured voters. Yet the registration the coloured voters exceeded by 4,000 Thel Otal number coloured adult males returned by the census while the regal ration White voters waa 10.000 Les 2. The whole number vote waa 187,604, theae 146,523 voted. This is a larger Dro portion re Guttieri voters than Umi ally vote in any the Northern state. In an nettled where Long Juu Ruey bad Ollen been made to reach the poll it is unreasonable to suppose that a greater proportion the registered Black would have voluntarily turned out to sustain a government Uoder which the Prosperity the state and their wages and the value their shares production had steadily declined than usually vote at election North South. Third the year 1874 was a year political change in which the vote throughout All the states was seriously affect cd against the Republican party Chango resulting largely from the financial distress the people and which should therefore naturally have been even greater in Thau elsewhere. Fourth it became the interest the conservatives at least at the last election not to intimidate but to acquire by every fair mans coloured votes. Parties who Wero alleged to have threatened the Blacks even with a refusal employ men were subjected to prompt arrest. It was known that pretexts would be sought to deprive the conservatives the result if they prevailed in the election. It a therefore their interest to avoid giving any Buch pretext. Achord ugly they determined every where to cooperate with and to conciliate the Blacks. They voted Down the propositions Euggne ions which were made in the Early part he Campaign for a Rousal to employ Tlisov coloured Vottis who would not co operate with them and generally sought by Oom Biu aug with the coloured voters to carry the election. Local combination against the Kellogg candidates were made in Many parishes men All parties and color. In Many parishes a Union ticket coloured and conservative voter wan voted for and elected. An intelligent coloured witness testified that he Tai red better government and to that end was willing to a Wallow Ibe White Man if the w Hile men would Swallow the coloured. These causes and feelings very naturally United to ■ will tub conserva rib vote in such localities As Are indicated by the returns. Conservative and Radical Circle inclines the whole to justify Kellogg and Pennis claims and As Kellogg a and Baa been acting governor Louisiana for the past two years to deny his right and to install another in i place after Thia lapse time might involve incalculable mischief to the Loyal political interests the state. To avoid the mischief and confusion change. A majority the Citie us Louisiana seem willing to accept to a Compromise Kelloggs recognition and Tho restoration to the conservatives the control the lower House. For these reason Mesar. Foster and Phelps do not wish to oppose the recommendation that the administration gov. Kellogg be recognized. Neither in View the merits the Case a judged by competent evidence do they wish to be understood a urging it. They Only wish to record their agreement with those their associates who believe that such a Compromise might be making a Terr Loati n the difficult Lea certain in Louisiana be the whole Lea intolerable that the present situation that distressed people. Bat to any Resolution recognizing Kellogg messes. Potter and Marshall Aro utterly opposed. They find nothing to justify the belief that Kellogg was elected. That be seized the government by the Aid Federal troops through a void and fraudulent order which prevented the counting and return votes should be a standing presumption against him. When the people outraged by the abuses his government had successfully regained the office he bad usurped he was again repeated by Federal Power through the forma Law by which he bad entrenched himself. He once More sought to nullify the Choice toe people at the late election and to that end Calle i in the Federal troops to break up the meeting the legislature. For Congress to recognize an usurpation so Gross and so oppressive is. They think to establish a precedent by which under pretext that can readily be found any Tate government Insy he overthrown. The will the people nullity a fraud and Ledee made permanent and Republican forms perverted to destroy wherty. In their judgment All that is meth a in Louisiana is to withdraw the Federal troops and leave Tho people to to state to govern themselves. Shah. Foster William Walter Phlp Clark n. Foiter Sam Cal s.

New York feb. 24.Tho Brooklyn City court seem a More than usually crowded this morning the greater number those person being lawyers gathered to Bear the opening address for the do Fenee in the great scandal trial. The principals to the suit were Early in their seat. Gen. Tracy the counsel for the defend arrived a Quarter an hour after the formal opening the Nurt. When a Faw preliminaries bad been arranged he arose and said to time bad arrived for Tho defense to open the cute. There were great Inette is involved in this trial. They could not be Over estimated a they involved the religious and moral interests society. Either Thi defendant was to go Forth vindicated from Thi court room with a stain upon Bis if and character. His client Touk i Eland Here alone but supported by big a and the Justice Bis cause. The defendant Erly devoted himself to the mini Liy god. It a no bed Rose. He the wild the coloured voters. Of course in to Large a stale it would he in a it Mihle that there should be no instance a refusal to employ intimidation. Such occur in every state but the evil Natco certainly indicate no general intimidation the coloured voters lid that such intimidation As did exist in the state was Raiher in the interest the rep Bocam than the Oona Rva Tiven. The United state marshals Wise chief a the Cabin Nan the Republican state commit be armed in some Case with Blank warrant arrest and aided by Federal troop made constant arrests before the election but not Aller Warda. The oversight the election and the return were in the hands gov. Kellogg s officials. Their account and return did Snow Twenty nine majority the it Mberwa Tbs loner Houe elected by the conservatives without prot Phil whatever except in three Paral though it was their province and duty to prot it in any cas where violence and intimidation fraud exist i. Indeed the direct evidence As to election 1874, a Well a the circumstances clearly indicate a peaceable and fair election. In fact after the Virdt the first committee the Kellogg party with ail their machinery for Collet Piug evidence were unable to produce in the entire state More than half a dozen Persona to Tetly to anything impeaching the Freedom and fa1rnk- the late election who Weie not office Holder connected with office Holder. Against such tact it seen to us Idle to assume that the disturbances so vividly pictured by the minority could have kept up throughout their state Ucb a feeling intimidation a would justify the Assumption that but for that Leeling the Siat would have gone Republican. And experience shows that the result the election 1874 in Louisiana. A re turned to the returning braid waa natural and to be Only accounted for by the reasons a have Given. We hold therefore Lysat in november 1874, the people the state Louisiana did fairly have a free peaceable and full registration and election in which a Clear conservative uie Jority was elected to the lower House the Legisla ure which to so Rity Tho conserva in a Weie deprived by the unjust illegal and arbitrary return liar Board. To reported to the House from the committee As to the action the returning Board we Are All agreed.

The speaker then went to relate the history 1 u Eod it re Tilton who a said b Jagau life upon the Tatt a newspaper As a reporter. He embraced the wildest views and believed that the world would Fol in the Way which be led. He became a deist denounced marriage As a train and As hindering the advancement the world. To Leader men my know now to protect Ai d preserve Bui Theodore Tilton knew Only How to destroy. Theodore Tilton fell from Bis High Eminence to which Tew men attain to the Bottom an Abisa. In the Blind impotence Ilia rage he determined to lit i anger upon Henry word Beech a. Imagining Tea lie had teen the cause his destruction. Or. Is Ember was toe Friend both Theodore Tilton and Hia wife. Hia for tend wife and children it unt a trampled Down to secure that vindication for which he bad bartered Bis we de soul. Or. Beecher moved to Thia Civ from Indianapolis in 1847, and was already a matured Man assured tame when Tiwu was enrolled among the men Plymouth Church he had not big to gain Iron Young Tilton and the latter had everything to from the e Luntey Ace Widen be Aff it re Quot a him. Ism cd sri Friendship for Tilton a inc Reua a by the mar air the la Tor to a Young girl in by Church in whom the pastor bad taken an interest. Tilton became an editorial writer upon the Independent and waa brought into a ill closer relations with Hia Paa . Who was a frequent contributor to Hal a journal. Etsu a be time Tilton Tiegan to feel a jealousy be Cher although Thi waa not suspected let a the latter. Cher. Losing the country residence at which hit family remained during certain areas Musof the year waa a waa Well known in the frequent habit taking Hie meals in Brooklyn at the boules Hia parishioner. A Early a 1861 1862 Tilton frequently urged Beecher to visit his Bouse in this manner urging the regard which waa entertained for him by Hia wife. Beecher at length complied to some extent with these solicitations. Mrs. Tilton who waa the real defendant in this Case was a woman Small stature childlike nature and a morbid religious enthusiasm. Tilton himself bad said that if she bad lived in the Early times the Catholic Church her name would have been and rounded by a Halo Hoe waa knt Irbit Divot Ltd to wbk husband looked up to him in everything and consulted Bia every lab. She watched with Pride Hia Progress but waa doomed to the sorrow seeing him blinded by egotism and surrounded by flatterers losing his hold upon what Abe believed to be the founds Ilona religion. She tried with tears and prayers to turn her husband to the Ritt. And she looked to her trusted pastor to Aid her in Thia labor. It Tilton had but followed the advice in the Beautiful letter which Beecher wrote to him in 1867, be would now have a Happy Home. Yet Wear asked to believe that at the very time when this wife was trying to save her Hurt and she committed the very sin against which she was warning him in 1863. Tracy continued Beecher sailed for Europe leaving Tilton in sols charge the Independent. Inthea Raenee Bis former guide Tilton s jealousy Bim wan increased but he still maintained the outward form Friend Alp. A 1865, Ibe night november 30, be wrote to Beecher a letter in which be spot be Hia Long affection for Beech a their intimacy and the obligations which he owed to hint. He begged Beecher in this letter to forgive him for any word deed Bis which bad Given offers and also spoke in it by religious depression. In this year 1865, Tilton became managing editor the Independent and in Hia egotism took every method showing his Independence Beecher w Hose equal Superior he now considered himself to be. He took Sovin tag political differences to make such violent attacks Beecher in the Independent that the latter was obliged to dissolve All connection with that journal. The pretext for these attacks was be echers cd Leland letter which had been read in evidence advocating a moderate policy towards the Houth s letter which read now nine years afterwards showed Beecher to be no less eminent a Ata trs Man than a pastor. But the views the extreme men prevailed and til at that time a he had testified found hit self with the majority his party. Tilton in Hia editorial chair was surrounded by extremist every sort who found in him a mind disposed to take the most Radical View every subject. A l Armijo changes took place in Bis religious sentiments As appears from his own testimony and from Bis letter. A also appeared from his own testimony and Ironi that mrs. Bradshaw this change a a saute great sorrow to is wife. Gen. Tracy to illustrate this read extracts from til tones letter already in evidence and from Tilton s testimony a lore the Church committee. Tilton had testified that his change opinion in regard to the divinity the Savior had caused Bia wife greater sorrow than any other event in Bis life except Thia scandal. In Thi extremity mrs. Tilton appealed to her is Tor and the latter talked with bin kindly the subject Beecher also wrote to Hutn the Beautiful letter to which he had already referred. The speaker read ibis letter already introduced in evidence in which Beecher said be thought til tones religious views were undergoing a transition slate to which Many most thoughtful then wer subject St some period their lives. B Echer gave Tilton word Sot sympathy and kindly advice referring to Hia own experience. At Tho close the letter be said he bad Given the idea starting a new newspaper a statement the importance which would Otense apparent later in the Spring. Geo. I racy then said that til tones views also underwent an important change in regard to the relation the scree. Believing that a great social revolution was impending in regard to the matter. Tilton according to his usual custom embraced the Radical Aid. A mad Thia subject a matter free and full consideration Wuh Hia aaa Clates who a cited at his House taking the ground that every relation bet Teu the s sex was proper which was attended by Mutual love. Thee views and these associates were extremely offensive to his wife and a source even greater anguish to her than the Chan Gen his religious opinions. In 1866 Niton induced his w if against her will to invite to her Choutea it nug lady whose acquaintance he bad made in the West and with whom there was no doubt be to deeply in love As appeared from his own letters. It was his own intimacy with this woman which nearly drove his Mother in Law to insanity. The lady in question seeing the danger to her from til tones admiration finally loft and broke off her relat Lou with him. Id Hia letter to Bra Wile Tilton Aboite Bis friendships As be called them for various women with a Freedom which was a Toni hip in a letter written to his wire to 12lh february 1967. Be referred to his in a certain Western family which to had visited Sud said that his whole life would have beet different if Bis i fees Mother had been a woman be if he could have been sheltered under such a roof As that instead breathing the atmosphere living Street. He Aleo Spuke having carried to Livio Geton Street mildew his for years and said that if be returned to Brooklyn at All he should return a better Man Gen. Tracy then said that the family referred to in Tbs letter v. To that in which Ibe Young lady already referred to was one t e daughters the Young lady whom Haf Erward took to Hia own Boot. Could a husband indict a greater cruelty a wife than by writing Ucb a letter in Jsu uart 1868, Iii Oles criminal conduct bad become Loo Lor concealment and Hia wit in one other Moat exalted moods taxed Bim with Bis sins. Conscience stricken be fell grove1 Ling at her feet and she gave him free anti generous forgiveness. The letter read in evidence showed Bat at an interview Between the two the eve Ning january 26, 1868, . Ilion made a confession to Hie Wile and that she accepted his pledges repentance. She Wen further than this and blamed her own conduct a the cause his cont Muing for a Long time afer to last Bera Elf Tor this imaginary fault. Gen. Tracy then read a letter aired v in evidence. Riken by Tilton to Bia wife in january 1868, in which be apes Sof bit Usell As a b.cortie and whited eau lab a filled with dead men Bones. He Beu read . reply in which she Blaine Berred for unfeeling conduct to Ard her husband Sod Calls herself the chief sinners. The speaker then said that this last let dated Jan. 3liipoh was written Long Honre a breath suspicion had been dreamed again Slit u woman Evn by husband and at a time when Tilton was himself guilty. He then read a letter in which is. Tilton spoke her mistake in having tried to repress the exp Resan n her great love Tor her by bad for it r that Stie would make him selfish a be also Asid in it that she thought Bia influence Over a woman whom he loved Moat be like Hia influence Over an audience that to love waa praiseworthy but to abuse Bia gift influence was Assn that Abe waa Strong and that no fascinations would Ever induce her to Iteld her womanhood. Traer said that Tia waa the letter which bad become somewhat famous in the cause through the fact that it bad been so garbled by the plaintiff in he statement a to appear there like a confession a wife that waa straggling against temptation.
