Temperance meeting and Supper. --An interesting public temperance meeting was held at Union Station Methodist Church night before last, presenting a large and very respectable audience, including the members of the Grand Division and visitors from resident divisions. The meeting was called to order by G. W. P. Dr. Peterfield Trent, who delivered an able address upon the effects of alcohol, descanting upon the customs adopted by the ancients in the making of wine, &c., and urging total abstinence as the best safeguard of individual happiness. He refuted the argument advanced by the opposers of the temperance organization, tht it is not subordinate to the Church; that he believed the glorious Star of Temperance had arisen high in the misty horizon, and shines with increasing brightness, though other stars have disappeared below the brightness of the heavens. Col. Drinkard next addressed the audience, opposing those who drink moderately as well as those who drink hard.
