The Jloston 'Globe,' which is oxcludod
from the Associated Press, it a warm ad

on Tuesday referring to tho reportod as

' Does any one suppoto that such aro

Is tha voil withdrawn so toon ? Does

THE LAST WIGGLE OF COL
FAX. From Gath's Letter In the Chicago Tri
bune It hod been hoped by everybody that
wo had cot to tbu end of Mr, Colfax's
case, and that ho would bo dropped out of
slglit. J-ato would not havo it so. ills
elusion of the numeofone Nesbitt has
opened up an entirely different job, dis
connected in any way with tbo Credit
Loofeiug over Colfax's bank-account,
and flies of old checks and drafts, 'Judgo
Poland found not $1,000 only received
from Ketbitt, but two drafts of $1,000.
This discovery led tho un'otunato Colfax
to tend to tho journals this statement:

Mr Colfax received his teat in congress
at the bands of a trusting constituency
soven times. Ho wes speaker of tho housu
only six years, and, prior to that distinc
tion; hud been chairman of tbo important
committee on poet-offices and pott
R.iads. Nesbitt was an envelope-maker nnd
stationary contractor, with tho govermcnt,
particularly with congress. He made
stumped cnvolopes, and had also a claim
beforo tho treasury for moneys. Mr.
Colfax is charged ut the treaury with
having worked through Ne. bill's con
tract, and benco $4,0ou received in four
months- No wonder that Mr. Colfax de
posited $45,000 during ono congress.
This discovery astonishes even myself.
I never had any dislike of Mr. Colfax,
other than an intelcetUKl resentment at a
man of shallow parts and feuble tempera
ment so getting tho start of tbo majestic
world as to bear the pulm alone iiut I
ought to be discharged from the news-paper

There Is a cruol circumstantiality in
theso disclosures. Mr. Colfax, who had
attemped to bo tbo Portuguese Kink

under his protccticn and lecturing about
it, to tho extent of having stations, towns,
gulches, and peaks, named for him, has
boon shown to bo a holder of stock in tho
