Recs Bryan, who has made up the tableau for the assessor, furnishes us the above statement of the assessment, which will be found Interesting. -em-C- - Degradis the Press. We publish this week an extract from the Rural Times, of which able Journal our 1 aged biend D. F. Head is editor, the said extract beaded "Degrading the l'ress." A right good article it is, and one, too, which 1 we cordially endorse. We regret that the unfair criticism of the Morehouse Clarion should worry our friend so much. It seems to us that there are many good arguments in favor of a convention which might be used to the exclusion of a petty and even contemptible insinuation like that of the Clarion-that the opposition of the Rural Times to a convention finds its inspiration in the fact that the editor of that honest sheet is a parish judge. And it makes the matter no better for another journal to say that this class of itniuuatory argnment was begun by an auti-couveuuti editor. The wrong act of no individual nmakes right the wrung act of another. The reputation of Judge Head is so high that those who Ii know him best repel with scorn so foul an tl insinuation. 0 tt Prun tlA stteontt we publlt It wil5 lie seen that the assessment of this parish qi for thtsyearhis$00,90. This isan increase over last year's assesamnent of over one huon dred thousand dollars. Even this increased or assessment is entirely too small, andt does t not nearly represent the value of property and investments in this parish. This, how- e ever, is the flmlt of individuals rather thant A oflcials. Talpayers have a weakness fo swearing to a cheap valuation of property b when it is being assessed. a _ --.4j----. Prisoners senteel. At the late term of the District Court in , this parish Swabe Howell, charged with U manslaughter, was sentenced to fifteen years in the penitenttiary. Josh Stewart, charged with mayhem, plead gailty, and was sentenced to five 1 years in penitentiary. I Iiob Williams, charged with hogatauling, i sentenced to sixty days in parish jail. Marcue Elia, found guilty of assault, fined If and cost of proeention. Many individuals are likely to complain of the cost to the pariah of a lengthy sen tence to the parish jail. All each are in Surmed that there is really lesa cost to the pariah in a sixty days sentence to the jail than in carrying a prisoner to the penite thry. General Do Trobriand, who commanda the military which, in 1875, expelled at the point ef Mae toyeeet the P isand.Lg)al - tate, beeame imiVt'ed a few dayp a it, s aeding to a New Orleans paper, in a dis ecuson of Freonch polities, and expressed very warmly his dtestlos of the spirit ad aets of the French Prlesidet, and bie hope that the Preanch people would hurl him from power.

It will therefore not be taken amiss if we p/opose that something in the way of repairs should-be effected with the organ in the Methodist Church. Professor 0 Wheeler can doubtles relieve the groaning and creaking of the pedals, the noise of FA which can be heard over the house. We regret greatly that it was not in our power to visit the Conference of the Pro B testant Methodist Church at Shady Grove. to Friends who were present say the attend- She ance was large and the ability oLthe mrm isters striking. At this Conference James W. Harper, D. D., was assigned to the cir- C cuit lately flled by Dr. Hickerson. Mr. Harper is a minister of great ability. We have been assured that he will preach in Homer semetime soon. If he does his ap pointment will be announced, and we ask for him a large congregation. s We have not the space to publish the .lengthy and rather amusing eommnniea tion handed un by a young friend from Athens last week. The arti'.le does not , possess sufficient general in .rest to war rant the use of the quantity of space that would be demandet for its publication. Besides, the writer violates a cardinal rule T with printern. He writes on both sides of the paper. ~------ Ci Homer Price Current. 8t Corrretael wild by referesme to actual mat. 7 asles Iy priepel menler. BAGGING--Irtlic 1 yd. 0 TIES-- jc I tb.
