A Lunatic in Jail.

George W. Patterson, a lunatic, was confined in our jail last Tuesday.  He was sent to Gordon county to the asylum two or three years ago and returned to Adairsville, where his wife was living, on last Saturday, but his condition soon became such that it was necessary to confine him again.  He had, we learn, made threats and endeavored to kill his mother.  His wife and father came to Cartersville with him on Tuesday, and a warrant was issued by J. H. Wikle, clerk of the board of commissioners for his arrest and confinement.
