Douobue, tlie Custom oflicer at this point,
baa )ut uneartliel the uiot exleoilve
iclionie of iwiixlins thai, baa ever been
brought to 1 be notice of the goVnr iiiuent
authorities. 'I'be dUcovery wa purely ac
ciilental, but ibelbor.ugh manner in vvbieh
tbc tleU'ls of the ca.- were afterward fer
reted out reflo'cU great credit upon tbe Fed
eral iffl i. Ou Wednesday afternoon,
S'-pl'Miibfr 5. J. II. Clavering, a young
fsi mrr living near Reoelaer Kails, gome
eU bteen in i leu from this city , brnuebt into
Cin,'. Dniiutic'i efBce a .mall package of
liam-niils Kiourea in a quill. He also
hr u,'lit v iih him a plseon blled with bird
but. Tbe diamond)! and pigeon be laid
upon the Captain's deak anil explained that
e bad utiot hi bird that naming. On c
aiuii in tr bia priiitlie young man found at
tached to tbe left leg a email roll securely
tied with mlk. Investigation phowed this to
be tbe larv'c purl of a turkey', fealber ti i led
with jrliateiiiai; stones. Theae be believed
were diamond, and ba.-tily putliiip; up hia
ilow and team be hurried to town, told bin
iorv to the Chief of Police, and wa ai-
eled to the eiisloim officer.
The olUcial were at first inclined to din
believe tbe t-tory. However, the pigeon
lay there and nine glttteriiii atones were
offered in proof of the farraer'i aa.ertlon.
I'be only expert Jeweler In tho city was
tent for, and after careful examination
pronounced the ttones genuine diamonds.
Seven of ibcm were "first water" and
the other' two were of inf nor
radc. With difflVuliy bird fancier
au secured, and he declared that the
bird wa a carrier or homing pigeon. The
large, bite rings about the even, the exlia
ized wattle and tbe breath of wing proved
the bird to be a "Red Antwerp, " or of t tic
finest breed raUed. Tbe fancier asserted
poitiveiy mat a bird or thin variety would
return to il home from a distance of I.V)
Thoroughly ronriuced that such bird- were
ti.-ed for smuggling diamonds from Canada
into this country, Caiit. Donohue ininudi-
itely set out to discover and arrest tbe sum;'-
?lers. T he fanner wan unable to tell in
which direction the bird wa flying when
shot, and there seeming absolutely no clew.
Tbo farmer knew of no homing pigeotis kept
in tbe vicinity of his place, and inquiry in
the; surrounding towns and villages failed to
reveal auv. Haifa doien men were nt
obi with Claverlng. Tbey distributed
ihetnselve about the country immediately
surrounding Rensselaer Kails, and a week's
areful watcbin? was rewarded with tbe
janture of two pigeon with their preciou
frelgbl, but all effort! lo follow tbe birds or
discover ibeir d'slluallon aignaily failed.
ON THK WKO.NG TRACK.
Not disconcerted at this, the captain went
lo sshrk id atioUier dlrec-llon. AILtQe traloi
pusJiig into Canada were carefully guarded.
For several day. there wa. no result, but
an tbe 22d Inst. hi. wntchfulne. was re
warded by the finding ol a wicker-basket
coutaining four of ibe homing pigeon..
The banket was addressed to B. i. Bar-
tnou, Kempville, Canada, and tbe charges
upon it were prepaid.
Two detectives were dispatched on the
train carrying ike basket with in.truHlous
to follow up Harmon, leant the nature of
bis business, and secure evidence against
bltn. Tbc depot at Kempville is an old
wooden structure andjihe birdwereput off
at that place and stowed away in an outer
bed with but little lood. Por five days the
detectives waited in vain for tbe consignee
lo claim bis property, and then reporting
that tbe smuirglers bad evidently
taken alarm, tbe oQkcrs were
ordered back to this place.
Meaawbile tbe search for tbe hiding
place for the adventurous law-breakers
went oj about Rensselaer Falls. Tho bills
of lading and the expreM companios' ro
ceiptsfor freight transport! over the
Rome, Waiertown and Oldenburg railroad
and over all other roads centering here
were aearctx'd for a year back. One in
portaot point wai thus esUblrshjcd. Ship
meat of ,tfowl" were found to have taken
place regularly from Henveltoo, Richvllle,
De Ralb Junction and Rtsnsaolaer Falls.
Two consignments of pigeons from Rich
ville were also traced up. Oue of these
bore date October 16, 1SS2, and tbe 'other
Msy T, ot Ibis year. With these facts in bis
possession Capt. Donohue concluded that
ss three of tbe points of shipment were in
De Kalb county, the smugglers' borne must
be in or near these, and the surrounding
marshes and dense woods were thoroughly
Yesterday William Cowan, a trained
woodsman, by the merest accident, as he
admits, came upon the biding place for
which be b..d been searching. Ho bad
puddled down tbe Oswcgatcble river in a
boat, and about the middle of DeKulb
coiinty struck a marshy ditch that led
toward Beaver Creek. Polling bis way
through tho tangled roots aad grasses and
wading part of tbe distance, bis patience
was rswarded by the rustle of wings
and soft cooing, Parting the reeds
hit taw within tbe clearing lu tbe woods
number of pigeons. Ho felt bis task lo he
pi'iirtically accomplished, and winllng to
llriner ground soon came upon three diva
cole, securely fastened in tbe branches of
a many dead trees. A rudo log cabin In
the center of tbe clearing was tho only sign
of human habitation. A knock al the door
followed by a loud ballon, brought no re
spoiise.and.enierlngunbldded, Cowan care
fully Inspected the premises, There iv
llit e to see. A folding bedstead, a table,
two cbalrs, a charcoal furnace and (bench
completed the furnace. In the table drawer
pen and ink and paper and envelope, wsro
found. There was no clew as to wbo lived
there, bow long tho resident bad been ab
sent or what bis purpose was lu selecting so
out-of-the-way a spot for his homo. Out
side several bushels of shelled corn and a
Dag half tilled with mixed wheat ami oala
lay on tbe ground where the pigeons could
easily get at them. Tbe birds were very
tame and tbe intruder had little (TUflculty in
capturing a pair.
No attempt at tilling the ground bad been,
made, aud though the cabin bow evidences
of bating boon built a number of years ago,
no prsvutlon had boon mado fur tbe sup
ten t the hermit vh leiMtsttp ocjb
a spot for a borne. Haifa barrel of l,..nt
craoker. and a mouldy section of dried bt I
showed that I lie strange marsh-dwclli r pos
seiased a material appetite. A pile of empty
cans back of tbs bouse also bore silent i -tlmony
to this fact.
Thorough Into stlgalion of the premise
convinced Cowan that tho arau5?lers bad
taken alarm from tho failure of the thrc
captured pigeons to return. The ngn
ious contrabandist evidently had a system
of acknowledging tho arrival of the birds.
and when three were lost thev knew that
tbeir seheos-bad been thwarted, so the
;abin was abandoned ai l a place of greater
Returning to this place Cowan laid the
result of his work before Cant. Donohue,
and that ofllcial this afternoon determined
to lay the mutter before the Secretary of the
Treasury at Washington, and a statement
embodying tho facts as herein given t as
prepared for transmission to Secretary Fol
ger. Tbe three lots of stone captured are estl-
mated to be worth U.100. They vslll be
turned into tbe treasury under lbs title,
Confiscated a contraband."

St. Lous. Oct. 2. Yesterday's opening
of our annual carnival week brought some
of, 000 visitor to tbe city, asrd many more
are constantly arriving. The ffi rate adop
ted by tbe various railroads ba necessitated
the running of an unprecedented number
of special trains. If the clerk ot the
weather decides te do us
much for the city, to-day will be
one of lue greatest crushes in St.
Louis' history. CertaiulyJ not less
thuu 75,000 additional will reach
the city to see to-nigbt's pageant. Nor
will tbey be disappointed by tho entertain
ment prepared for tbem. Tbe display
made by this city bas never been equalled,
tniieli less excelled, in say metropolis in
America. QT'be. dazzling apleador ot tbo
gas-iiluiiiined streeU, combined with the
parade, proccssious, balls, pyrotechnic,
etc., are graudcurs to bo remembered for a
lifetime. Tbe rain which fell last night
spoiled, to some rxtaut, the full effect of
the illumination snd tbe fireworks, but
the preparations made and tbe satisfac
tory test of tbe gas give assurance of a iH'and
Mines for the remainder of tbe week
should the weather prove favorable, k is
predicted by the sergeant of tbe Signal Ser
vice. Otherwise, the prooession will be
postponed, aud the public will be duly in
formed by ten strokes of tbo fire bell at
fi o'clock and by a repetition of the strokes
an hour later. Transparencies announcing
the postponement will also be borne through
the principal streets after the ringing of tbe
bells. Twenty-two floats will appear in tbe
