A MADMAN'S FREAK IN A CHURCH.â On Sunday afternoon last, an elderly man suddenly entered Elgin Place Congregational Church, Glasgow, and taking off his coat ascended the pulpit stairs, and embraced the pastor, the Rev. Albert Goodridge. The officers of the church immediately removed the man, who shouted "I have a message from God." He added that he had come from Hell. He carried a T square, saying it was a cross. On removal to the police office he gave the name of John Caldwell, and the surgeon, finding him insane, ordered his removal to an asylum. THE POPE AND IRELAND.âMonsignor Persico, acknowledging an address presented to him at Tipperary, the other day, said-The Pope loves Ireland. He knows all the sufferings she has gone through, and feels the deepest sympathy for her people. He has sent me to tell you of his love and sympathy and moreover, that he intends to do great and real good for Ireland, and when he raises his voice the potent of the earth will listen with reverence, because that voice is never raised but in truth and justice. He will do all that lies in the power and province of a Pope for the future prosperity of Ireland. A MONTH IS NOT FOR EVER.-At the Warrington Borough Court, before Aldermen Davies and Harrison, three young women named Bodelia Knockton, Margaret O'Brien, and Annie Daley, well-known characters, were brought up charged with having disturbed the peace by fighting with some militiamen in Buttermarket-street.. They were each ordered to be bound over for six months, themselves in £ 10 and one surety of £ 5, or go to prison for a month. After being dealt with, prisoners created a disturbance by laughing, and were ordered below. On being taken out of court one of them commenced singing A month is not for ever," and caused considerable commotion.
