Tsx secretrry of the Kew Asylum, (Vie.), Mr. Valiance, had an unpleasant experience with an inmate of that institution on Saturday afternoon. For several years one of the patients, who has always been regarded as "harmless," has been acting in the cap.city of servant to Mr. Valiance, and during that time his conduct has always been sunch as to strengthen the opinion that he was thoroughly trustworthy. On Satur. day afternoon, however, he suddenly broke out into, a fit of uncontrollable rage, and picking up an axe that was lying near hit Mr. Valiance on the head with it, rendering him unconscious. Mr. Valiance, it seemed, had merely asked the nan' to 'harness the horse, and apparently it was this request which .so violently incensed the servant. Fortunately, Mrs. ValIance was close by, and she called for help. The engineer em ployed...
