In our last issue, the SENTINEL commented on the attack made by the Comet upon the Police Jury be. cause of its action in electing the proprietor of the aSNTINEL parish printer. It endeavored to show, and) blieves it did show, that the Police Jury had acted strictly within and according to the law in the matter, i add to give force to its argument quoted the law governing that body. The Comet admits the law but says that inasmuch as it as not a crimiunal statute it is not to be con strued strictly, and therefore, the police jury may observe it or not, Zs 4 t see pror. The law is 'mod vbte eime.. bq true that there is no penalty provided for its violation, there is a moral ob ligation to observe it and we cannot ssbscibe to the Comet's c-de of ethics by which it seeks to justify its nonobservance. If the "editor and proprietor" of the Comet would "brush up against legal lights" a little more, he might modify his ethics to the extent of recognizing the duty of observing the law, even where these is no penalty provided fo- its violation. After making its new point on the law, the Conet devotes two columns of its space to criticizing the SENTIN EL, its proprietor, the distrie t judge, and other people unnamed and on. described, and indulges in innuendoes and little flings of attempted sarcasm. New, the issue was between the SENTINEL and the Comet, and why it should bring the district judge in the controversy, in violation of all rules A professional ethics, is inexplicable except on the theory that the Cornet lesired to vent its spleen upon that hstinguish-"d individual for some ilmasaniry wrong. The Comet seeks to justify its attack upon him on the ground that it is "morally certain" that he is the author of the article in the SENTINEL. We might be "moral. ly certain" that the article in the Cornet was prepared by another than its editor and proprietor, and still we would have no right to charge any )ne with its authorship, much less to attack any one, when the Cormet has made it its own and assumed all res jionsibility for it hi publishing it editorially, just as the article in the $Sw it rule of journalistic ethics. The article of the SENTINErL was its own utterance for which it is respon sible; under the rules of correct journalism criticism of it should have been limited to it. There are some people however who either have never learned these rules, or else think it "smart" to violate them by dragging into the controversy irrelevant issues. The Comet seems particularly hurt by this passage in the ssNTIxeL's article which followed the statement of the Conme's threat against the Democratic party: "We regret that the Comet has made this statement, because we had been pleased all these years to look upon its democracy as genuine and disinterested. ant not only purse deep." The conet seems, judging from its comments, to have misapprehen'led the clear .mport of this passage: it does not say and it does not mean that for any one "to seek a share of the official patronage it is Democracy that is only purse deer;" but it does mean that, if any Democrat does quit the Democratic party, or turn against it, because he does not receive public patronage at the hands of a Demo cratic body, it proves his Democracy to be only purse deep. That is all there is to it. The comet had to have, in thie eon nection, its little fling at the Demo cracy of the gentleman it has seen fit to drag int, this controversy. It says: "If the author of the article In the Sentinel would just come from nehind the shield called the "proprietor" of the Sentinel we would not he surpris ed toses that he is the holder of a fat vinci'. The question then natural ly arises "is his Democracy only of Ice-deep 7"' Arguing from the Cgnnet'a assump tion the question does aol aaturitllp arise, for the gentleman referred to with a sneer by the 'ornset has never threatened to break with his party, if he is not riven an office, and those who, whether Democrats in Itepubla cala, know 'uime well, believe that he will never come to thst pass, and there will never be occasion- to char acterize his Dewocraiy as only "officee deep." T'his testimony we believe ev~en his enemies, if he has any, will' bear him. Further than this the distinguished Democrat attscked iby the Comet needs no defense at our hauls. The Comnet is pleased to ascribe our detense of the police jury from its unwarranteil attack to the ignoble motive o! fear that the jury might recomisider its action and divide the patronage again. We can only say, "*Ilonni soit qui mal y pense." We acted from no such motive; we' thought the jury had been wrongly attacked, and we said so, and tricd to defend it. But, of course, some ['eo ple cannot alppreciate disinterested motives, some cannot even conceive of tteir existence. The Comet persists in charging the police jury with giving the SENTINEL a bonus of $25 per month. The police jury has done no such thing. It has elected the SENTINEL parish printer. and will pay it just what the law al lows for its labor performed. Just compensation for labor performed is nut a bonus; to so qualify it is a solecism attributable to either loose ness of e'l)resaion, Ignorance of the language, or a sinister purpose The 1 r.>prietor of the SENTINEL can stand the gmnet's sneers about his Democracy; he has done what he could for his party since the age of majority; the SENTINEL since he ac quired it has continued to uphold the cause of Democraqy as it had dose in "fae peast 1., .. a iº He is not ashamed of his record, nor is he ready to change In a pet his politics or that of his paper. The Comet indulges in puerilities in appealing to a higher law, and pleads for equity. There is no higher law involved in this controversy, and as for equity '-a little more brushing against legal lights" wonud have taught the "editor and proprietor" of the Comet that he who seeks equity must come into court with clean hands. Hle is now loud in his dentin ciation of caucuses and of the police jury, because he was not consulted about the election of a parish printer; was he so kind and brotherly towards the proprietor of the SENTINEL. to apprise him of his intention to take nway from him last year one half of the parish printing ? Did he see to it that the police jury call him and con. suit him shout the change ? And since he is so '"-ituck" on the dividing plan, which he new advocates as wo just and fair. did Ii", when lie secured one heilf of the palish printing, carry out his principle of justice sad fair ness into practice, and divide the town printing with the SENr:IEi. 1 Oh, no; nor dial le then shed croco i'e tears over -'man's inhu. manity to 'natn."

Thibodaux 6, Baton Rouge 4. Friday last, the B-iton Rouge ag. gre-gation with five fresh viciornes dtisging at their tblts, met defeat at thI, hands of the locals. The Cotton States League's second best, again proved their ti.le to that honor, when they met the boys, for they left the field with the score stand. ing 6 to 4 against them. Bob Pen tier's Pets, try as they would, could not connect with Pierce's benders at apportune times, and this accounts for their defeat, for with the excep. tion of a few errors, they played the game. The locals accorded Pierce fine sup port, and he in turn twirled at his best, striking out six men, and allow ing his hard hitting apponents eight hits. Blincos, his riual, pitched flue hall, yet only three of the locals fan ned the breeze, whilst eleven hite were recorded against him. All in all, the game was the most interesting well lplayed game of the season. The umpiring of Harley of Baton Riouge, was complimented on all side-a, Its fairness, and general excellence. The score and sumanary are as f.,l. Iowa: TIHROD.4UX. A.B. If. liE. P.O. A. K. Gibba se..........~........5 I 1 4 1 b'udger,2b.....:.*.....4 0 2 2 4 1 Spe.c...... ...

Owing to the unsettled conditiot> of the weather, the celebration of Abraham Lincoln's one hundred days' Proclamation of Freedom, was held within the A. M1. K Church, on Mon. day the 22nd inst, instead of outdoors as expected. Our colored citizens enjoyed an in. teresting and pleasant entertalnmiut, judging from the following account of the proceedings furnished us by one of these present : The musical selections were in the bandy of Dr. G. C. Bryent, who was supported by the excellent Choir of Allen Chapel, of which he is leader. . The songs were appropriate sad in. spiting~, and coslribmed the full mneawlire of beebls pleasure and enjoyment of the oeea sion. Interesting and instructive address-. es were delivered, eulogistic of the late President Lincoln; on the most successful methods of advanchag, as d prom ting the moral and intellectual progress of the eman':ipate4i people of the United States; and on the measure of gratitude to God which should be constantly uppermost in the' mind of the emancipated race. Forceful arguments were presented along the line of earlh of the above topics, by Prof. Mlathew Diekerson, lier. Eugene Bapstiste; M~r. 1$urh Dunn; and Rev. F. A. Rylander of New Orleans, who was orator of the Dayv. Mr. Rylander, as well as the others, were fr.qneqntly applaudled in a most Renert.us manner, expressive of the appreciation of some of the witty, as well as luractical utterances expressed by them.
