Humor and Inference for a serious incident:
LYNCH LAW REVIVED.
The Southern Tribune, published at Point Coupe, Louisiana, says:
“A preacher whose name, we believe was Twing, attempted to commit a rape on a little girl about 6 years old, somewhere on the Atchafalaya, about two weeks since. He was caught, tarred and feathered, rode on a rail, and then put in a canoe and turned adrift in the Bayou, without oars or paddles of any kind. We have been informed that a jug of water and a loaf of bread was put in with him, so that if people were afraid to venture near the ‘strange bird’ to assist him, he would be safe from starvation.”
