TinuTY-Tiiiuu Dat. - The day was one of tho dellest Biuco the trial bega! being chiefly given mv.r to dry legal arguments, and Bcarceiy marked by noteworthy incident. Iilton was i tul on tlic Tritnesi stand. The only new j mouy of importauce offered was a letter from Mra. TUton to her busband, dated July 1, 1871, in wiiich nlic praycd that l:e miglit not "need the further discipline of belng misled by a good woman Rü Í liave been by a good man." The prcceedings were brought to a sudden aud j dramatic termination at 4 o'elock in the aftcruoon, One of the jnrors waa seized with au apUeptio fit and wan obliged to retire from tho eourt-room, whcreapon Judge Neilson ordered bh adjoiirnment.

Tiitou ; Jeromiah Pi Bobinson, Moulton's neus partner; and WiUiam Maratón Braisher. The latter testiiied to Beeing 3eecher on the stoop of the Tilton nansion, once or twice ven' early iu the morning. Itobiuijou testified to Beecher'a avowal of love f or Jfoulton. Bell's evidence re[ited to certain interviews and meetings between the Plymouth deacona concernhig tlie scandal before ü pnblioation, Bnt by far the most important testimony was contributed by the brother of Mrs. Tilton, who stated most reluctantly that he had seen hia Bister and ÜCr. Beecher in a situation which aroused in him the most painf ui suspicions. TiiiitTï-FiFTH Day.- Mrs. Francia D. Moiüton was put upon the stand and gave soine reiy important evidence tor the prosecutton. The witness teBtiüed that Beechcr and lire. j lilton both confessod their ".sin" to her, Beeoher taking the blame of it on himself, and Elizabeth as generounly blaming herself for tbe wliole business ; tbat Boecher told hor it " was of no uc for liim to live any longer, and j thftt ho -n-ould take liis lifo ;" that he : coniessed to her his great lore for Mrs. Tilton ; that Mrs. X told her if tho matte became m]]ic Khewonld sacriüce her hunband and her ohildren rather than Mr. lieecljfcr ;"that Mr. ï. told her that she could not live with ïheodore, becauw he was continually remindiug her of the "Bin" he had committed.
