Buffalo, Sept. 3. The attention of tho government has been called to the increase in smuggling on tho Niagara Kiver. The political features of the question have become prominent on both sides of the border. Custom-house oflici ills profess to believe that the ollense is not increasing. "Well-informed detectives aver that tho system of smuggling has become about perfect. It takes on new phases irom year to year, but the general aspect is unchanged. Kerosene oil is taken across Niagara Kivcr from Buiialo to Canada in enormous quantities every night. Butter, spirituous liquors and silks come just as steadily from that side to this market. These tiro tho staples of the smuggling business here. Between Vermont and Canada there is probably more fraud with respect to liquor than any other article. There are fasliionable clubs, wealthy citizens and scores of dealers who obtain regular supplies of Montreal brandies, winta and whiskies free of duty by means of tho (irofcssional smugglers. In return the Canadians are furnished with stylish or " Hash " jewelry and many other articles, for tho manufacture of which tho Yankees have superior facilities. Nextto tho Niagara comes tho Detroit River in affording opportunity for evading tho customs regulations. The traffic carried on in the vicinity of Detroit is fully as diversified as in cither of tho above sections. A trip across Niagara River in a row-boat takes about half an hour. A couple of men familiar with the landing places can make four or five runs between Black Rockand Fort Erie easily in the course of a night. A yawl or clinker will carry fivo or six hundred pounds of butter, and, as there is a duty of four cents a pound on this article, in addition to the entry fee, it is readily seen tha,t high wages may bo earned. There is little or no danger of detection, the river being almost entirely unguarded. Tho few officers employed in this district aro chielly engaged in tho daytime on the trains and passenger boats. The propoition of smuggling iu these regular channels of trade is very small. It is unquestionable that where one dollar's worth of goods is brought over surreptitiously by train or steamer, a thousand dollar's worth is brought across the nver iu small boats under cover of darkness. Not less than fifty night watchmen would bo required to repress smuggling along the frontier line fiom or Niagara Falls Southward to Buffalo, Ilambiiig and Dunkirk. Residents of Fort Erie allege that a ilo.vn or a score of bands of kerosene are frequently seen lying in the woods South of the old fort. The popular method of getting this product across the river is to place the barrels in the water and have a batch of them fastened together by means of wires or ropes, when thuy aro taken in tow by d boatman and hauled to the Canadian shore. Tho sagacity displayed in this plan commends itself at once." Tho tow-line in-iy be ten or fifteen rod in length, and should the smuggler be apprehended while en route Jie has only to let go of it and the proof of his guilt vanishes down stream. Besides, the barrels aro self-sustaining in the river, whereas they would prove very cumhcisome iu the small boats which aio required iu the smuggling business. Tho dutv on kerosene at Canadian ports is seven uud a half cents per gallon, or over S3 per barrel. The man who takes a tow of a dozen barrels across tho river has earned in an hour a salary for which many a physician, lawyer or journulibt toils a whole week. A BEAST. niMUUfttlnsr Scnndul Among Prominent VllliiKO People. Chvrsso, Mich., Sept 2. Shiawasaea county, this State, is all astir over an alleged criminal assault upon a youug lady named Lora Reid, which occurred at Duran village, the facts of which havo just been made public. On the afternoon of August 17 Jolin T. McCurdv, a married man, called Miss Reid into hisollice and made indecent proposal, which were indignantly spurned. The young lady rose from her chair to leave, when he caught her round the waist with one hand niul closed her mouth with the other, lie then violently thrust the lady into a back room on a bed upon the Hour, and there accomplished tho deed. McCurdv is powertully built and is about years of "age. Miss Reid is seventeen years old, very slight in form and weighs about eighty-five pounds. She is tho daughter of Hon. Rasselas Held, in the State Legislature. The Reid family aro highly respectable. T lie young lady has homo an irreproachable character. Tho prominence oi tho parties gives wide-spread interest in tho affair. A warrant was issued for McCurdy's arrest on Wodno.Mlav. Sheriff' Kelso went to his residence in Vernon to take him prisoner, i bnt found McCurdy had disappeared. All efforts yet made for his apprehension havo been futile. Mr. Reid is vory low with consumption, and this blow falls upon him will terrible effect. Further are awaited with anxiety. A GOOD OUTLOOK. The HiiuIiicnh or the Country Promising Well. Ni:v YoitK, Sept. 3. In their weekly report, II. (J. Dun & Co., of tho mercantile agency, say that .tho fact that tho business of tho country is ilowing with a pretty full tide through its accustomed channels is indicated by tho steadiness with which tjie fiyurcb showing tho bank exchanges. at tho chief centers are maintained. "With depression in several prominent branches of trade, and only a moderate nctivity in most departments of spocculatiou, it is rather surprising than otherwise that these figures do not show a marked decline. Tho trade of the week has presented no new features In dry goods there is a moderate nctivity, though orders aro very low in consequence of overproduction. Grain, provisions, cotton and petroleum have all declined more or less, but the reductions in value on the whole have not been large. Tho stock market has continued weak and dull, the expected activity after the recent collapse having apparently been postponed, though thero is reported to be Bteady buying for investment of good securities that are now very cheap. Money is still easy, on 1 tho banks continue to report a large surplus. In speculative endue aitivity has been wanting, but so far as legitimate trade is concerned tho outlook continues to be encouraging. WANT DAMAGES. VicltHhiii'K t'ltlscim Want .Honey for Iti.ltiricn. Vicksiil'ko, Miss., Sept. 3. Sundrv citizens of Adams niul Jetlurson counties, b.'ing survivors of the disaster which occurred at Mammoth Bayou, on the line of the N. J. A: V. Railroad, between Fayette and Natehez, have brought suit against that corporation for damages sustained by them by itason of injury to their person's respectively. Tho pirties suing are : Win. S. Cannon and wife and their little daughter, Ethel May Cannon ; Miss Susm Hall and Miss Virginia Hall, all of county ; Messrs. Ferdinand D. and James A. Grillo, both of Natchez. The injuries consist of broken limbs, crushed hand and other various wounds somo of which, it is alleged, havo produced permanent injuries. Tho amounts sued for respectively range from $5,000 to 520,000, aggregating 103,000. It is stated that before suits were brought eilorts were mado by plaintiffs to obtain an amicable settlement, which was refused by the railroad company, who claim that the injuries were tli'e result of an unvoidable accident. Plaintiffs, however, are certain that the disaster reunited from a defective track and bridge, through which the train fell, and was caused by gross and culpable negligence of the company, its ofhu.als, agents and employes. ST. PAUL'S FESTIVAL. A Kljf Celebration In Honor of tUe Xortiivrn Pat'Kie. Sr. Paul, Minn., Sept. 3. This is the greatest gala day St. I'aul and Minneapolis ever saw, the occasion being the tonnal celebration of the completion of the Noithein Pacific Railway from .St. I'aul to the Pacific coast. President Vil-lard und his invited guests, number over 100, of notable men of this country and Europe are here. In both cities every public and private business building is decorated, as well :us many residences. Fine arches are erected upon the principal streets of St. Paul at various points along the line of march of the procession, which in each city will Ihj several miles long. The St. Paul procession will meet this forenoon and Minneapolis iu the afternoon. In St. Paul this eviiiing an elaborate display of fireworks will bo made, with initste. iu the evening the Villard party will be given a banquet at the Hotel Lafayette, Lake Miiiuetouka, at which neatly 10 1 plates will be laid, and to which prominent citizens of St. Paul and .Minneapolis and the Noithwest have been invited. A Murder 'oii('NSmI. 15 MiAiioo, Wi., Sept. 3. Christian Dussel, a brother-in-law of the man found dead near this place, was arrested after the inquest and has confessed the murder, lie gives as his reason for the murder that Obrect threatened his wife's life and also the life of her children, and to prevent him from carrying his threat into execution he murdersd him with an ax Sunday morning. Ho secreted the bodv in a smoke-house, where it remained until i Tuesdav, when it was taken out and placed iu the road, where it was found. A preliminary trial was held Monday at Logan-ville, and Dussel and Mrs. Obrect were bound over to tho next term of the Circuit Court. Both are in jail in this city A WomiMi'tt .Nlleucr. Salt Lakh, Utah, Sept 3. Belle Harris, the polygamous wile who refused to tell the grand jury tho name of tho fathor of her two children, has been discharged from custody, tho term of court having expired and the grand jury being dismissed. Tho woman was committed to prison for contempt in refusing to answer as above, three months ago, and having held her tonguo all this timo comes out a martyr and heroine in the eyes of Mormons. Upon her release she was subpatiaed to appear beforo tho next grand jury in December. Nulciilnl. Dr.CATurt, III., Sept. 3. Coroner held an inquost on tho body of William 11. Wilson, aged twenty-two, who committed suicio in Long Creek. The body was not discovered until dark.

A St, Paul special says thero is a great deal of indignation among Villard's English guests at tho conduct of the Earl of Onslow, who, it is alleged, solicited his invitation, brought three othors, insisted upon occupying the entiro Pullman car, and capped tho climax by sending his servants to Blcop in another car with guests, who turned them out.

Blood-Curdling Deeds of a Lunatic. DInde Itavlnir Mail by tho Kalvntlon Army Endeavoring to Crucify Ills Iilttle Son ami to Hum Alive IIIm Daughter Tiincly Hcbciio of tho Child reu and tho Capture of tho Fiend. BoTrALO, N. Y., Sept. 3. The eastern part of Eric, Pa., is intently excited over tho blood curdling freaks of a man crazed by religion. Sylvester Knott, a well-to-do fanner, living in a comparatively isolated spot on the bank of Lake Erie, is the fanatic whose deeds aro the theme of public conversation. Some months ago Iio attended n meeting of the salvation army, at Franklin, where tho first seeds of insanity were sown. Since then his brain has by degrees grown more and more inflamed, and now his frenzy knows no check. For two weeks pa3t ho has wandered up and down tho lake shore, regardless of sunshiue or storm, dedlaiining on salvation schemes, pecturing the horrors of judgment day, and calling upon sinners to worship God or be eternally lost. Ho planted a largo cross in the woods upon which to nail his eight year old son, believing tho boy would bo tormented in hell fire forever unless ho died the death of mankind's Redeemer. With strength well nigh superhuman Knott held tho lad firmly while driving a largo nail through tho little Jfellow's hand, unheeding his piteous pleas for mercy. Tho dreadful work was interrupted by some wood cutters who chanced to bo passing. Leaving his son hanging the maniac fled, first striking down one of the rescuers with a hammer, then leaping into the lake. A search for his hiding place proved fruitless, and it wa3 thought he had been drowned, but such was not tho case. Beforo midnight the crazy fiend returned, smashed the door of the house, and knocked Mrs. Knott insensible at a singlo blow. Entering a chamber where his only daughter, Minnie, a beautiful girl of seventeen, lay sleeping, he bound her hand and foot and carried her to a lonely place in the forest, where hundreds of cords of wood were piled. An altar was quicklv built, and upon it the madman se- cured his child. " Even as Abraham did with Isaac will I ofieryou as a burnt offering unto the Lord," chanted the madman, setting the funetal pyre on lire. The climbing Haines soon licked the exposed limbs ol the girl, whose shrieks of ugonv and pr.ivers for a more merciful deatli were music to the madman's ear. He implored the Almighty to accept the sacrifice as an atonement for the sinful deeds committed by him in years long gone, and added fresh fuel to" the altar. But help arrived in time to prevent tho consummation of the fearful design. Two young men, crossing the woods on their way home troni a party, saw a bright light and heatd the young lady's scieams. One felled the demented sire, while his companion scatteied the blazing fagots and lifted the almost nude maiden from her fiery bed, when the cords that fettered her limbswore transferred to of the unconscious maniac. Miss Knott is painfully burned about the lower extremities, and theie aie large blisteij. on her shoulders, arms and sides. So awful was her experience that titu doors of an asvltini may open to tho daughter as well as to tho father. She raves night and day, and i' is feared that her reasun is permanently dethroned. LAKGE PIIIE. The TliuoN'Stnr uiet of Cincinnati iliirncU Out. Cincinnati, Sept. o. At 2:l5 p in. a file, suddenly broke out on the lirst lloor of the rag department of Henry Dremnn fc Co., '2.1'2 Walnut street. In an instant the flames were communicated to tho rest of tho building, and before the depattment arrived had communicated itself to the fourth story. A moment later tho liro caught the press-room of the Time-Star. The pressman used a pony hose, but failed to check the flames. The loss of the Times-Star is perhaps blio.OOO. That of Dreman's not less than $50,000. It is partially insured. Tho Humes originated in a heap of rags taking their start as they so often havo before, in similar establishments, from spontaneous combustion. A iiroinan belonging to Company Number Ono was thrown trom tho third story to tho pavement by the falling out of tho wall, and badly hurt. His escape from death was miraculous, ho only saving himself by swinging the ladder on which ho was standing to one side as he saw the wall begin to give, thus narrowly escaping being buried under tho ruins, lie went down with the ladder, of course, and, although painfully, was, it is believed, not fatally hurt. Several other firemen had narrow escapes, and another fell twenty feet and was badly bruised. Gus Hubor, employed on tlto third floor, was nearlv cut off from escape by tho Haines, and reaching tho ground lloor he fell unconscious, being badly burned and nearly suffocated by the binoke. Ho was taken to the hospital and cannot recover. DcNcrtcrH Taken to Cnmp. GnEHNYiLLE, III., Sept. 3. Quite a stir was created iu local military circles by tho appearance of two officers in quest of deserting militiamen. Several oi tho Hilliurd Rifles did not seo fit to respect tho orders to report at Camp Logan, but changed their mind when Sergeant Ilibbaul, of Compnny A of Areola, and Corporal Floyd, of Company F of this city, arrived from Springfield with authority to bring in tho delinquents. They woro marched to the depot under f;uard and departed on tho 3 o'clock train, laving learned moro about military rules during tho fow hours than they ever knew before. The action of tho authorities is sustained by public sentiment here.
