Thomas W. Higginson, on Burns’ arrest.

With the characteristic Garrison “finger” — Thomas W. Higginson    For the valiant and effective Sermon delivered by this noble man, in regard to the kidnapping of Burns,  — which occupies a portion of our third page, — we are indebted to the Worcester Spy.  It will be read with thrilling  satisfaction.

On Saturday last, Mr. Higginson was arrested and as one of the Court Square ‘rioters’ and, waiving an examination, gave bonds to the amount of $3000 for his appearance for trial.  John Hancock was once a rebel.
