The unfortunate occurrenee that
took place on Satuirday evening is very
much to be regretted, and we know
that S I. Green, the-husband of the
, colored woman who caused this
trouble, should not be held responsi.
ble for her actions. Since he has been
e a -resident of our town he has always
d conducted himself in a gentlemanly
e manner, and there is no one who
d regrets it any more than he does.
,e lie has always attended to his own
r business and gave a helping hand to
the advancement of the town, as far as
he possibly could; but his wife has
e always been known as a woman who
h classed herself as good as any "white
folks" and has shown her dislike to
them on several 6ccasions, and the
very foolish thing that she did has
cnissed her to leave the town. She
ought to have known that such a
i thing meant just what has happened.
The colored people in Providence
I and in the parish are treated by the
." whites better than any other place in
to the State that we know of, but they
Is must remember that if they wish it to
e continue this way that the white people
will not stand a repetition of what hap
rs petted on Saturday evening last, and
it our advice is not to let it take place
t again.
