Church Difficulty

Church Difficulty at Alexandria - Three residents of Alexandria were arraigned before Esquire Ladd yesterday, and fined one cent and costs each, for breaking into the German Lutheran Church in that town.  It appears that a division took place in the church some time ago, on account of some difficulty among the members, and both parties have preachers employed.  One party, with which the Trustees of the church side, refuses permission to the other party to occupy the house, hence the trouble.
