A Religious Maniac at Rotherham.— Early one morning, last October, the people at Rotherham were astonished to see a n\an in his night-dress run rapidly along the street carrying a baby, which was also in its nightdress.

He declared that according to the behest of the Almighty he was saving the child from hell and eternal perdition.
