"Between ten and eleven o'clock, the Under Sheriff, with a sufficient body of constables and assistants, attended at the county gaol, and demanded the body of Renshaw in the usual form. The unhappy man ascended the steps of the prison with a light air, and at a quick pace, and seemed rather cheerful than otherwise. he was perfectly collected, and appeared quite attentive to every thing passing around him during the time of preparation, as well as at the place of execution. As soon as the preparations were completed, the prisoner was placed in a cart, accompanied by Mr Tatham, a gentleman of the Methodist persuasion, who had attended him in prison at his own particular request, and whose exhortations, added to those of Dr Wood, the chaplain, had wrought so happy a change in the prisoner's mind, that he hailed death with a confident assurance of obtaining eternal happiness thro' the merits of Jesus Christ. The procession moved slowly to the gallows, where an immense multitude was collected. On its arrival there, the prisoner spoke to the populace two or three times in a firm and audible voice, acknowledging that he had been guilty of many thefts and other enormities, and that he justly deserved death; he confessed to being a party concerned in stealing the sheep, and that he was accessory to the stack being set on fire, for which he was about to suffer; but that it was not him, but his accomplice, who actually fired it. he said he had sought to God for that mercy for his crimes which could not be extended to him on Earth; that he died in peace with all mankind, and implored the forgiveness of all whom he had injured. After a short time spent in prayer, he was turned off; but owing to an improper neglect of the hangman, the noose slipped over his chin, which the humanity of the bye-standers rectified by instantly lifting the body up, and placing the rope in its proper position. The sympathy of the populace was general at this unexpected accident, and occasioned a strong feeling of indignation against the hangman. The body, after hanging the usual time, was given to the friends of the deceased, who took it to an outhouse near the place of execution, where it was stripped, and put into a coffin, and afterwards conveyed to M for interment. Renshaw was in the 35th year of his age, of a middle stature, and rather robust. He has left a wife and six children to deplore his untimely fate."
