Another Unfortunate.

On last Tuesday a young man named Hudson from the 17th district was brought to this place and confined in jail under a warrant of lunacy.  He is reported to have been extremely violent, attacking his father and mother on various occasions.  His case will be investigated by the county commissioners at their next meeting.  We do not know what is to be done with this class of unfortunates, as Dr. Green has informed our commissioners that it is doubtful if any lunatics can be received this year as that institution is now crowded and over seventy applications on file.  Several have recently been sent and had to be returned.
