A large block of tall buildings in the principal thoroughfare was surrounded by the police, while Sergeant Greenall and a constable ascended to the roof in search of an ex-convict named Diggle, belonging to Bolton. Diggle led his pursuers a long and highly hazardous pursuit over the house tops before they ran him to earth in an attic, where he had taken refuge. He had to be lowered from a window to the constables below. At the jBlackburn police court Diggle was charged with twing on premises for an unlawful purpose. He Jhad a bad record, and was sent to prison for three months. James Dorey, who murdered his family at ISTaul, and was ordered to be confined in Dundrum Lunatic Asylum, Dublin, during Her Majesty's pleasure, is said to have recently escaped, and juttle doubt is entertained that he is uow safe abroad. Certain facts transpired which have led the chief keeper at the asylum to resign, and two other officials have been dismissed by the Lord- lieutenant. 1 lie flight of Dorey was assisted by the dismissed officials. A dummy was placed in his bed to deceive a k epe'r on his nightly rounds after Dorey had escaped from the window by means of aropp. A suit of clothes was placed in an adjoining hut, and here the escaped convict clothed himself and made off. Great excitement was caused at Blackburn railway station on the arrival of the Midland train from Manchester by a report that one of the passengers had poisoned himself. A middle- aged man, apparently a collier, was found in a third class carriage in great agony and almost unconscious, while on the floor of the carriage lay a broken bottle labelled poison." From the statements of two men who travelled in the same carriage it appears that directly. after leaving Darwen the man jumped to bis feet and began raving wildly. He tore his neckerchief from his throat, and taking the bot Ie from his pocket bit the neck off with his teeth because the cork stuck,, and swallowed the contents. His fellow- panengers were greatly alarmed, and one nearly fainted with terror at the sight. > A fearful story comes from Penang, a Dutch vessel having been pirated by her Acheenese pass.ngers, who murdered the captain, two English mates, and 22 members of the crew. The cargo was left intact by the pirates, whose leader was the Acheenese supercargo on board. Seven of his accomplices went aboard at one of the ports of cl1.11 after the Customs officers had examined and left the steamer. This irregularity probably led to the disaster, which resulted in the firates securing five thousand guilders as booty. n obtaining this, however, they also killed 21 passengers and wounded 12, while 18 others who escaped in a boat were drowned by the craft ,mpsizing owing to over-crowding. Nineteen passengers and 32 of the crew were unharmed. The pirates carried off four Acheenese and five other women. "THERE'S A CHIEL AMONG YR: TAKIN' NOTES, ,AN' FAITH HE'LL PRINT 'EM," has now become a saying so familiar that no apology need be made for introducing it; especially as it is inti- mately associated with the Press, which has helped in publishing the value of Holloway's PilJs and Ointment. The chiel that had been takin' motes for the past fifty years of the cures effected by these wonderful remedies, has frequently in- formed the public that they have no equal. He ftiaa noted where they have been successful when other medicines failed, and he has been particular in stating that at this period of the year they are ^specially useful, as they cure or relieve dysentery, tfiiarrhcea, all stomach and bowel disorders, bile, øa4 indigestion.
