Cincinnati, April 7. At the
banquet to-niglitof tlie Army of the
Tennessee, cx-Prcsidont Hayes an
nouncing the toast, The United
States, said that the toast was elo
quent and a sufficient answer to
the questien: ''-What has been
gained by the war of 1S61?" He
entered at some length into the
great extent and resources of the
country; to its early trials, and
stated that it seemed to be the
chief danger of these times that
neglect of the people to exercise
their power at tlie ballot box
would give the demagogue and
trickster their opportunity. In
telligence would gradually obviate
this danger, and the wisest men
would eventually be found at the
front ot political movements.
TT nnid a warm tribute to1
President Lincoln, to his wisdom
and knowledge of the people.
He compared the smallness and
sufficiency of our army with the
magnitude and inadequacy of
armies of other countries. The
wealth of our country increases
from two to three millions daily,
and the debt will in a comparative
ly short time be extinguished in
full payment. "We were becoming
more careful not to permit lavless
exhibitions against the weaker
races and nations, and are more
tender and more jealous of their
rights. Many other toasts were
given and happily responded to.

"Washinoton, April 7th. A
treasury official remarked to-day
that there was now massed in the
vault of the department a larger
amount of gold than was ever
known to be in one place in the
liistory of modern times at least,
and probably more than could be
authenticated as existing in a
single treasury at any time before
in the world. There is now about
173.000.000 of irold coin and bul
lion, exclusive of some $50,000,000
in silver, while the bank of Eng
ladd has only about 75,000,000
in gold. What is iriore singu
lar, it stays in the vaults, no mat
ter what demand for it. As fast
as it is paid out, it returns, show
J v ing that as long as confidence is
maintained it is not a favorable
RooojiU, we had .hs minor of a
volcanic discovery hi West Virginia,
where from a hole cm thm a man's
body in circumference, came jeJa of
steam and vapor with sulphurous hW,
and other things pertaining to vulcanic
infancy. More recently, the mystery
"was geologically and scientifically ex
plained and measured, till there was
only the sise of a dead coon .at a depth
readily stirred by a short xle, and
this accounted for the odor. But the
question still remains, have we a vol
cano in Amoiicn? Of late there have
been rumors of one or more out here in
"the continuous wood where rolls the
Oregon;" and for many years people
have believed, as they still believe
from seeing a pillar of vapor wr smoke
by day and light bj' ui;ht that theie
is something of the kind in west
Florida, near the gulf coast. A Her
ald exploring expedition and many
others have tried in vain to solve the
mystery. But, like the polar mystery,
it must he solved. Cannot the West
Virginia demonstrator of terrestrial
and animal anatomy take his divining
rod down toward the tropics and tell us
whether or not there is a coon at the
bottom of the Florida volcano? All
the papers and explorers in that slate
agree that there is something there,
and to find out what it is would be a
great thing to do.
Go to M. C. Crosby's and get
your lunch buckets, water kegs, bail
ers' buoys and boat stoves.
.Never go shopping without con
suiting the advertising columns of The
Astokiax. They will tell you where
the best bargains are to be had, and just

Our Consular Courts.
Satt Fnmefevce hrJeJe.
John Martin Ross, an Americau
sailor, killed a shipmate on board
an American vessel. Tlie ship put
into tlie port of Yokohama, Japan,
where Ross was turned over to
Van Dnren, the Americau consul,
for trial. He was tried, after a
fashion, found guilty ami sen
tenced to death. The President
commuted his sentence to life im im
prieonment: and on landing here a
few days aio, in custody of an
officer, on his way to a state prison
in tin state of New York, he sued
out a writ of habeas coqus, return
able before Judge Sawyer, of the
United States Circuit court. The
object of the writ is to test the
validity of the Yokohama trial and
the judgment of the consular court.
We have no doubt that Judge
Sawyer will decide the case in
J exact conformity with the law, and
what we arc now writing has no
reference to this particular case
whatever, further than to point
some general remarks on the prac
tice of our consular courts in like
cases, and on the law that governs
and regulates such practice. It is
a relic of a decayed Roman law,
which empowered the first magis
trate of that republic, when at the
head of its legions in a foreign
county, to try, decide and execute
criminals without appeal.
It was long ago practically
abandoned by all civilized nations,
and though our law appears to
give the condemned the benefit of
appeal, the practice is still one that
can hardly be regarded as less
than abominable, considering the
character of many of the men
who hold consular offices under the
United States; and in saying this
we have no thought of impeaching
the character of Mr. Van Buren,
consul at Yokohama. It is clearly
in violation of the constitution,
which the members of congress
who passed it each took a solemn
oath to support. The constitution
reaches wherever the American
flag is planted, and a citizen of the
United States or a sailor serving
under 'that flag, whether at home
or abroad, or in whatever Ameri
can court, is entitled to all the
rights which that constitution
gives to any citizen in any txtc or
territory of the union. The fifth
amendment to the constitution of
the United States reads as follews:
No person shall be held to
answer for a capital or Hierwic
infamous crime link?? on a pre
sentment or indict input of a s-noio
jury, except in cases arising in the
land or naval forces, or in' the
militia when in actual service in
time of war or public danger.
A sailor in the mercantile marine
is not in tlie category of excep
tions. And any law of congress
which puts him there manifestly
violates the clause of the article
above quoted, and ought to be re
pealed. Whether Robs should be
discharged as a free man or not is
not for us to say, pending the con
sideration of his case by the cir
cuit judge of a United States
court. But as to the law itself,
we have no scruples in denouncing
it as an unconstitutional abomina
tion. The prisoner is defended bv
Hon. J. J. Henderson of Oregon,
late consul at Amoy.
i35Tiome say that it is no use for them
to advertise, that they have been in the
Place in business all their lives, and
".vcrybody Know tliem. Such people
seem to forget to take in oiiMderatiou
that our country is increasing in impu
tation nearly 40 percent, every ten years,
and no matter how old the place may be,
there are constant changes taking place :
some move to other parts, and strangers
fill their places. Jn this ago of the
world, unless the name of a business
firm is kept constantly before the public
some new firm may htart up, and. by
liberal advertising, in a very short time
take the place of the older ones, and the
latter rust out as it were, and be forgot
