35. New York Daily Advertiser, 26 October 17871

A gentleman from Berkshire informs, that one night last week a number of the disaffected party passed along the street in Great-Barrington, huzzaing for Shays, and threatened to release the prisoners. The people of the town immediately assembled, but the party of insurgents escaped.

The inhabitants of Berkshire are still apprehensive of danger, from the dregs of this expiring faction, and place great confidence in the hope that the adoption of the Federal Constitution will give a check to their tumults and disorders, by giving energy to measures adopted for the suppression of insurrections in the different States.
