Lynch Law Revived

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.”

Sandusky Clarion (Sandusky, Ohio) Apr 26, 1845
