One of the most astounding systems of

bu lately beon uneartbod by special
acentt of the pott ofllce dopartmont, and
the whole mattor was made public yester
day by tbe arrest of Klisha Cowlot, poU-
. ' . .l .. l, DaaIt lalanil and
ai aceni on uo vun.si w- ----- -
l'tciflo railroad. 1o bogin at the begin
nlns?. lutpiclons wero excited against
Cowles last fall, for the flrtt tlrao. On Oc
tober !, 1873, Mr. Oharltt htewart, tho
dry-goods merchant of tho city, mailed a
letter containing $'20, directed to a party
at Downey, Iowa. 1 be letter lea Devon
nort on the morning of October 7, on
Cewlos' run, bat it never reached its des
tination, l'ostmaster Unwell im
mediately reported the cue
to the 'department at "NVatbington,
and he, togetbor with special agents, J. K.
Hraurt, of Iowa City, and J. 11. Furray of
Omaha, proceeded to Investigate the case.
It took touio time to wore up mo matter
to at to mien me roooery airecuy on
Cowlos, but tho agonts were fully tatisllod
of his kuIH a few days after taking tho
cate in hand. So decoy letters wore sent
out, and other measures wore taken to ef
fect tbeir purposa. On Monday morning
last tho. special detectives Stuart and
Furar arrived in Davenport and were In
consnltation with l'ottmattor Hunel for a
long time. They alto remained here Mon
day night waiting for Cowles to take hit
run, they having at latt brought the case
to a focus. On Tuesday morn
ing Covrlts loft tho city in
charge of bis car, and the detec
tives were also passengers on me same
train. Yesterday morning Mr. Ktissell
received a dispatch from tbe detectives,
stating that they bad just arretted Cowles
In bis car near Avoca. It also staled that
when arretted Cowles had one of tbe de
coy lotten In bin hand and otbort in bu
possession. lie made a full confession of
all his robberies. Tho confession will not
bo made public, but it is stated tbat be hat
been riuing letters jor years pui,uaiD
for several woeks he bu been stealing let
ters at the ratef fifty a day. lie appears
in htva fircited little caution in bit op
erations, and to have broken into letters
bv tba wholotale in a perfectly recklen
and Indiscriminate manner. The prisoner
was taken to Dm Moines and placod in
KUiha Cowles has had an eventful life,
and bat seen much trouble and many
cbangot. He It fifty-two years old, is a
native of New Knelaod ; he went from
his native state to Michigan, where be
went into business and amassed mock
wealth, bolnc at one time ono of the rich
est men in the town where he lived. At
that tlrao he owned and operated two
large taw mills and was prospering finely,
when mitfortuno came, and bo was twico
burnod oat, loosing each tlmo over thirty
thousand dollars. About eight years ago
be came to Iowa and bought a tract of
land near Kellogg, Jatpor county, and
upon this farm bo hat over since resided
with his lamily. He bat boen married
twice, his second wife boicg a half-sister to
Schuyler Colfax. Ho has a large family,
consisting ol bis wne anil nine cnuaren,
the eldest being n eon twen-ty-ono
years of age. Mrt. Cowlea It taid
to be a very fino woman, much superior to
hor husband in many respects, and hot al
ways been a good ana true wile ana
mother. She deeply feels her husband's
dlsgraco. Cowles ht been malt agent on
tbo uavenpori run oi me u. it. i. ana r.
for tovon years: be has alwtys been re
garded as as a good reliablo clerk, but
never as a very smart or otllclenl one. tte
had always been regarded as strictly hon
Mt ud to the date of the disclosure, ltat
October, and what Incited him to choose a
career ot crime which ho certainly must
feavfi known would result in dltclotnra and
dlsgraco is not known, his actions cannot
bo accounted for. Hit case will como be

FOR THE BRITISH
London Cor. Cincinnati Commercial.
Here is a circular, just out, admonish
ing us that another claimant has appeared,
the estate In this case being only tbe
crown of England. Thomas Frederick
Qeorge Ouelpb, of 4 Thornhill Croscent,
Balnsbury, London, proclaims his ability
and resolution to prove tbat bo Is "Duke
of York, rightful and lawful desceudant
by tba legal marriage between Ucorge
the Third and Hannah Llghtfoot, and en
titled to the Arm of Hanover and the
Drtgonof Wales, "and that tbo so-called
Prince of V alet it only entitled to tbe
Armt of Baxe-Coburg tho Arms that
were bis fathers." Tom I (at wo call him
for short)writes : "My mother't father
(the llev. David Daviot, who was a strict
Protestant minister, and the last maledos
cendent of Llewellyn, the King of vt ales),
after having been dead many years, was
excommunicated by a priest on Palm Sun
day, in tho yoar 1872, at St. Albans,
Bruoko street, Uolborn, B. O." This is
mysterious, but looks as it Tom I. bad
two strings to that bow with which b is
to shoot the golden apple from Albert's
head. But tho Tichborno trial mutt en
courage him. How much will it cot to
prove tbat ho it not the ton of George

how long that pretty Hills Quakeren
Hannah haunts tho royal home. Poor
