A great sensation was caused in Church Street, Liverpool, last evening, by the appearance of a man naked with the exception of a singlet and roaring with the energy of a fury. The poor fellow, who was evidently demented, was taken in charge by a police constable, who borrowed a blanket from a licensed victualler in the street, and, wrapping it round the man, took him to the Main Bridewell, followed by an excited mob. He was identified as an imbecile named John Green.
