A Baltimore special says at thu temper
ance address by Vice President Colfax
last night, tbo reception was tho greatest
in the point of n urn tors and enthusiasm
ever held in thut city, .ludgo Daniels,
chairman of tbo meeting, in Intioducing
Colfax, ulluded to his purity of character
nd tho failure of the nttempt to conuoct
him with tho Credit Mobilier,
upon which there was immense
cbtoring. Whim Colfax commenced
speaking the applause wus very crcat.
Tho greeting he had received he said was
gratifying, bocauio it showed they be
lieved that during hit public life, that
would close next month, ho had sought to
stand right in tho sight of God, whether
the world judged him wrong or not. Mr.
Colfax then went on to speak on tho evils
of intemperance, and the best method of
teniperanco hgislution, alluding to him
self but onco more. He said the world Is
so full of human trials, crime, suffering,
wurs, diseuse tind breaking hearts, thut it
ti sometimes hurd to bear up.

A motion to lay on the table the Webb
