Gold Duties.

The amount of duties, payable in gold, collected at this port in 1865,
was $586,407 ; and in 1866, $780,700. This sum is about one-fifth of
the customs levied on goods imported into St. Louis. This is only a
port of delivery. The imposts upon our foreign merchandise are chiefly
paid at the port of entry.
