Hon. II. II. Claussen, of Davenport, ac cording to tho Democrat, is writing elabor ate articles in favor of a single gold stand' ard and against making silver a legal tender. Une ot the principal arguments employed by him in favor of his position is the fact that Germany has recently abolished silver and made gold the stand am. Dtit mis argument loses mucli ot its force when it in stated that Germany had experienced great difficulty in turn ing silver out of use, and that unfavorable results have so far attended the attempt to abolish it. Supposa Mr Claussen should remember also that he is in America, aud just "because Germany does a thing" in not good argument. No nation in the world more readily adopts and assiuiulstes the thoughts, habits andcus torn s of others mors readily than the American people, and it would seem that men possessing the intelligence and ability of Mr. Claussen would put forth more sensible arguments than the one be advances in this case. Mr. Claussen a t 1 -.a.' 1 i should rememoer that our houds were placed upon the market when the silver dollar was the real standard of measure ment and that a government bond ot $1,000 calls for one thousand silver do lars, that to now do as Germany has done as though no other thing would be right and pay in gold would require' $1,100 for each bond, and would increase the $1,500, 000,000 debt involved in this dispute, $150,000,000. The question then is, not whether the bondholders shall take $150,000,000 lets than they are entitled to. but whether they shall receive $150,000,000 more than they are entitled, to, The Vacant Office of Coroner. During the illness ofithe late Coroner Vermillion he appointed Justice Henry Hayden to act as coroner in his place, in holdiag inquests, and attending to any other business necessary in connection with the office. Justice Hayden has held several inquests, and, we believe, has gvmn eaiY.',P satistactian to the-pevif, in regard to the manner in wbich they were investigated, and the general result of the cases. The law provides that "when a vacancy shall occur in the office of coroner within one year before the expira tion of the term of such vacant office, the acaocy shall be filled by appointment by the county board of tbe county in which the vacancy exists; but if such unexpired term exceeds one year, the county clerk shall issue an order appointing a day for an election to fill such vacancy. and cause notice thereof to be given as in other cast 8 of election." In the present case, the unexpired term exceeds one vear before the expiration of the term of office for which Mr. Ver million was elected; but we would suggest to the county clerk, as the law does not specify when or how soon notice shall be given of an election to fill the vacancy, that when ho issues the order -for the new election that he designates the 6th of November the day of the regular fall election for county juoge and county clerk. This would, we beliove, be entirely satisfactory to the people ot the county, as it would obviate the necessity of going to the expense of holding a new election. In the meantime, it would be only an act of courtesy to the wishes of the late coroner, to allow Justice Hayden to act in that capacity uutil one is properly elected and qualifies.

Jackson, whose mother keeps a boarding house near the court house, made complaint, yesterday afternoon, before Justice Cropper, charging Daniel Morris son, a boarder at her mother's house, with stealing her hair brush and comb, valued at $4. The case grew out ot a civil suit against Morrissoo for a board bill. He was arrested by Deputy Marshal Blackburn, and on being taken belor-j Justice Cr.jpper took a change of venue to 'Justice Cooke. He was then released, by agreement, on his own recognizance, to appear at 1:30 o'- ciock tms atternoon. tne examination was still going on when The Arqus went to press.

Ex-Mayor Lambert of Brooklyn gets out of a bad breach of trust very cheaply. He was the trustee of his sister's fortune misappropriated and lost it. The facts came out. Lambert is an exemplary church member and elder. At the close of the sermon in this church on a late Sun day he rose and made a full confession of his crime to the congregation. He said he intended to make all the restitution he could in this life; he hoped God in his mercy would forgive him, and that it was b 8 solemn purpo e uenceiorth to live acd die in the love of the Redeemer. It was all right then, tor his sister's squandered fortune, which was his work, was nothing when weighed in tbe balance of unshaken faith in tbe Saviour. For Thirty Years.
