"Nobility" in the Calaboose.
--Lord Adolphus Vane Tempest
, M. P. was arrested a couple of weeks ago in London
, for getting drunk and standing in the middle of Coventry street, stopping all vehicles passing, by catching the horses' heads.
In the court-room he amused himself by spitting in the face of the police, stamped his feet on a table, sang popular airs from the opera, whistled, and in various ways exhibited a refined and cultivated taste and bearing.
In consequence, his lordship was sent to the House of Detention
, and in default of finding two sureties in £500 each, was to be there detained for a week, at the expiration of which time he was to be re-examined.
