A LUNATIC'S HALLUCINATIONS. MURDEROUS ATTACK AT CALVELEY. On Friday P.C. Turner, of Calveley, was knocked down and struck on the head with his own stick—and severely hurt—by a man named John Tudor, who lived in a precarious manner in the neighbourhood. There were several witnesses whom Tudor threatened if they interfered. Luckily for the constable, Tudor desisted in his murderous attack on being requested to do so by Mr. Simcock for whom he had done odd jobs. P.C. Thos. James, of Tiverton, having received information of the injury to his brother officer, met ludor near Bate's mill, Tiverton, walk- ing along the canal in the direction of Chester. Tudor brandished the stick menacingly, but the constable pluckily followed him along the canal until he turned off at Tattenhall, where he disarmed him and handcuffed him. On being brought before Mr. R. Bate at Tarporley on Saturday, he was very noisy and excitable. He expressed regret that he had not killed P.C. Turner. He protested that he received visions from Heaven, that his Saviour told him to sing and shout—and do things—that the Lord was going to destroy Tarporley if Turner received a pension, and that he had been in Heaven, and had had several fights with the devil, and so on.—Dr. C. Royds Jones, of Alpraham, having certified that Tudor was a lunatic, the magistrate ordered him to be detained at Upton Asylum.
