The execution of a bridge-burner in Knoxville.
--We have already noticed the execution of C. A. Hann
, of Green
's county, Tenn., engaged in burning the Lick Creek Bridge
The Knoxville Register
, of the 12th inst., in referring to the execution, says:
The prisoner was escorted from the jail by a military guard, and met his fate with hardihood.
He confessed, upon the scaffold, that he had been engaged in the incendiarism of the bridge — the proof of which, indeed, was full and positive before the court — and said that, under similar circumstances, he would do it again.
