The Last of the Harper’s Ferry Slaughter.
EXECUTION OF STEVENS AND HAZLETT, AT CHARLESTOWN.
The town was thronged with visitors to-day, and several companies of military were in attendance. STEVENS and HAZLETT were hung at noon. They appeared resigned to their fate. STEVENS died very hard, while HAZLETT perished without a struggle. Both exhibited great firmness and resignation.
There were no religious exercises at the gallows, as the prisoners persisted in refusing all the kindly offices of the ministry in their last moments. They were both Spiritualists, and had a peculiar religion of their own, which enabled them to meet their fate with cheerfulness and resignation. Both their bodies have been forwarded to Marcus Spring, South Amboy, N. J. They will reach Baltimore in the early morning train.
