Virginia Mob, New-York Spectator (August 20, 1835)

In this untitled news item, published on August 20, 1835, the New-York Spectator reports that the rumored lynching of an Englishman named Robertson for being an abolitionist was untrue. The paper follows this by reprinting an item from the Philadelphia Gazette on how to better respond to riots.
