THE tbue stoby.
The Beecher BaslneM.
The BeecheivTiUon scandal is agaia as
suming importance, through the very pe
culiar conduct of the parties interested*
Some months ago we were told. that Mr.
Tilton had prepared a voluminous docu
ment which he would give to the world
the proper time as the true story of the
difficulty in which Mrs. Tilton and Mr.
Beecher were . .involved. Recently Mr.
Edward H- 6. Clark, of l Troy, New York,
published what he. calls this “True
Story,” and is careful to convey the im
pression lbaUt fcfiuß Mr. Tilton’s own
manuscript. He Says? ?Bow this true
lnto spy posSesalon .is of no
consequencrto the public, but can 5 easily
be asoerlaihed in the courts If any of the
Specially Interested parties should have
the temerity to press an' investigation.”
Mrs' Woodhull, the author of the origin
hi istory, in a recent scathing review of
Mr. Clark’s “story,” sls6 refers to the
evidence that it came from Mr. Tilton.
She declares that the paper In which Mr.
Clark publishes his* account and calls it
the thunderbolt, is “the Golden Age print
(Mr. Tilton’s old paper,) Its types, inles,
; head-lines and ail.” Having thus estab
lished the fact that this document h&a
been issued -with Hr. Tilton’s sanction;
it becomes important to ascertain what is
Mr. Tilton’s version of the scandal. And
here it is“He asserts that in the fell of
1870, Mrs. Tilton having just returned to
her home from a wateringplaoe, she was
visited by Mr. Beecher, and that on this
occasion the pastor ot Plymouth Church
unbridled his fiery passions and besought
of Mrs. Tilton the most intimate relation
ship accorded by her sex. Such warmth
of pastoral attention was declined by Mrs.
Tilton, not with the loud anger of osten
tatious virtue, but with the mature sad
ness of common sense. The good lady
was surprised and the true wife reported
the occurrence to her husband.
Greatly angered and grieved, he re
quested her to make a memorandum of it.
She did so, and I give her own words lit
erally as they were written: “Yesterday
afternoon my friend and pastor, Henry
Ward Beecher, solicited me to become his
-wife in all the relations which that term
implies.” In his manuscript book Mr.
Tilton comments with some evidence of
pride upon the delicate and skillful man
ner in which Hr. Beecher’s hideous over
tures were here expressed. Mrs. Tilton’s
language is striking, and is apt to impress
itself on the reader’s memory. So much
for Mr. Clark’s version of the “True
Story,” which, if true, in no wise exoner
ates Mr. Beecher. But Mrs. Woodhull
refuses to accept this version, and adheres
to her own. She asks Mr. Clark to pub
lish “a certain letter received by Mr. Til
ton from Mrs. Tilton during her absence
from Brooklyn, at a watering place, in
the summer o.f 1871. * * * Please
ask Mr. Tilton if that letter did not state
that Mrs. Tilton said she had been read
ing Griffith Gaunt, and that night, while
on her knees till midnight, she had awak
ened to the horrible crime she had com
mitted against her husband. Did she not
state that she felt, that she had been driven
from him, and that she could never live
with him again unless they were remar
ried?” Mrs. Woodhull goes still further
in her refutation of Clark’s version. She
says that in the fall of 1871, a year after
the above recorded interview between Mr-
Mrs. Tilton, Mr. Tilton pub.
lished in the Golden Age a poem, with his
own signature attached, in which this
significant verse appears;
“I clasped a woman's breast.
As If her heart I knew
Or fancied would be true.
Who proved—alae, she too I
False like the rest.’’
And Mrs- Woodhull continues: “This
poem was written by Mr. Tilton, so be in
formed me, in Young’s Hotel, Boston,
where he had gone to lecture in Tremont
Temple on ‘Home, Sweet Home,’ with a
revolver lying beside him, with which he
intended to end his misery, leaving the
poem behind as an explanation of bis sui-
cide. Returning, however, to bis better
-sense, he desisted, and returned home,
called at my residence, read me the poem
in mannscrpt, and gave me this history
of it.” Mrs. Woodhull proceeds: “'■What
was the great Jgrief that caused him to
walk the streets of Brooklyn the whole
night inconsolable, as be has done night
upon night, either alone or with Mr.
Moulton ; and his constantly expressed
desir? ‘to die, ashe had nothing to live
for in this world.’ The pnrported faith v
fulness of Mrs. Tilton in saving Mr.
Beecher from becoming an adulterer,
ought to have made Mr. Tilton extremely
happy in her possession. Or was he dis
tracted become she did resist the persua
mens of Mr. Beecher ? Had Hr. Tilton
never told the same story to others than
to me, I might feel called upon to go into
a detailed proof of the whole matter, hint
since he has so repeated it to a half-dozen
persons, whom IJknow, Ido not think it
necessary to refute his 1 strand amended
statement. The public win place it side
toy side with mine, and give doe weight
to the fact that the amended statement
was prepared under the bias of an emer
gency, which, perhaps, he did cot con
template whfnShe made ihe former and
unbiased statement to me Md others.”

“Think not to gain what you desire, by

Coming back to Mr. Clark and bis
charges, Mrs. Woodhull says; “Had it
been my desire, as the act has been gener
ally interpreted, to destroy the usefulness
of Mr. Beecher, and drive him from Ply
mouth Church, I could have made such
use of the material in my possession as to
have accomplished it. He could not Lave
escaped under having me prosecuted on
an impossible charge of obscenity. He
would either have had to throw himself
upon the church and confessed or prose
cuted me for lible, which I know very
well he would never attempt to do, so
long as three witnesses now living should
live. But such was not any part of my
motives, andlonly used such facts as I
bad good reasons for believing would not
be very objectionable to any of the par
ties involved, Beecher alone excepted.
And 1 know, should be be compelled, as
be would have been bad Mr, Tilton acted
well his part, to have ackowledged the
whole matter, that Plymouth Church
would have been compelled to sustain or
fall with him. Mr. Beecher did not hesi
tate to say that be anew of fifty members
of his congregation who would stand by
him in any event. Everything will event
□ally be made public. It bas gone too
far. All the facts are in the possession of
too many persons, some of whem I think
do wish to kill Mr. Beecher, and who will
not hesitate to drag even a ‘cringing wo
man’ before the public to do it The
only method of salvation, as I frankly in
formed Mr. Beecher, was to come to the
front and say : ‘Well, this is true; and
now what are going to do aDout it ?’ But
I'frankly confess that I believe the ulti
mate fate of the now distressed woman,
who every hour’of herNlife stands in mor
tal dread of the fcets coming before the
public, would be much better if she were
herself to come out and solve this whole
It will come sometime, and the indica
tions now are that it is not far off. There
should be no more real disgrace attached
to her about the affair than there should
be had she personally been injured in
some other manner. I said it was no
body’s business what Mr. Beecher and
Mrs. Tilton did as lovers,and I say so still.
Simply as such I had no right to touch
the matter; but when they practiced the
theories 1 advocate and then denounce me
for advocating them, it became my busi
ness, and I not only had a right, but it be
came a duty that I strip off the Hypocrit
As a fitting sequel to this comes a curi
ous document, under date of Brooklyn,
April 2, 1872, but published last week,
and signed “H. C. Bowen, Theodore Til
ton and EL W. Beecher. It purports to
be the disavowal. And as a case of care
fully worded special pleading, or as the
lawyers call it “Confession and Avoid
