    “Governor Wise was evidently very much excited ere arriving at the Ferry, declaring his determination to have every insurrectionist hung by nightfall.”

    SO PERISH ALL THE ENEMIES OF OUR COUNTRY! The fanatics will see from the result of this outbreak, that nothing but death and disgrace await those who attempt to overturn the institutions of the South, in defiance of all law and all the claims of brotherhood. Good will come of this evil. Northern men, of anti-slavery proclivities, will pause and ponder over an outrage of this kind. They cannot and will not justify it. It will bring them to a sense of the impolicy and injustice of associating themselves, even remotely, with such a cut-throat gang.

    The South is stronger to-day in its rights and institutions than it was before this attempt to subvert them. It is strong in its own power, in the power of the State and General Government, and in the weakness of its fanatical enemies.
