The Beecher-Tilton Scandal. .'; New York, August 20. .; The case before the committee has" lately developed some important facts, but withal has made very little progress.

Tfcis dieted an angry letter from Sir. Bcechcr, who con-' eluded by demanding that Sir. Moulton should lay before the committee of six every paper in his possession bearing upon the matter. Mr. Tilton's request to the same end was duly obtained; and Mr. Mo niton has addressed a note to the committee, appointing Monday even ing next as the time when he will be ready with his statement of the case. The importance of this will appear in. the fact that he has been the mutual confidant of Beecher and T...
