Support for Brown’s Execution

The following text is presented here in complete form, as it originally appeared in print. Spelling and typographical errors have been preserved as in the original.
We are surprised to see that the N. Y. Journal of Commerce advises that Brown and his murderous crew shall not be hanged, but sent to the penitentiary. If there were any need, we would protest against such a course. They deserve hanging, if ever any persons did, and about that we have no doubt.
