The Radical leaders find the negro a
heavy load to carry. The issue made by
their friends in the last Congress is au
ugly one, and they are endeavoring to
get sway from it by a system of false
"trails," branching out in every direction
from the true one.
Their last dodge to this end is an attack
upon the County Commissioners and
Directors of the Poor, in which they
raise the hypocritical cry of "extrava
gance !" "extravagance!' and undertake
to prove it by comparing the expenses of
the county diming the war with whet
they were twelve or fifteen „gaze* agb !

the last four or five years? Take the
prices of flour, meat, sugar, coffee, mos-
Has, and compare them with what they
were.before the war, and every dollar of
increased expense at the Alma-house is
accounted for. Every article used at the
house, as well as given to out-doer pau
pers, has been purchased at the enormous
prices caused by the war—ca war, by the
Way, which would never have occurred
but for the sectional hate engendered by
these same Radicals.)
The Democrats who have occupied,
and now occupy, seats in the Boards of
Commissioners and Directors have al
ways borne the highest character for
economy and honesty, and we are safe in
saying that if the Radicals had no polit
ical designs upon these offices, they
would be secure against all complaints
now. Had the Radicals had entire con
trol of the two Boards during the war,
the expenses would certainly have been
quite as heavy—indeed much heavier, if
the fashior. so common during that period
among them in other quarters had gotten
a foothold here.
The PEOPLE understand these things—
and who should understand thorn better
than they, having suffered, and are still
suffering, the burden of high prices.
The only blame lies at the door of the
Radicals, and they can never get rid of
the odinat ,th us, incurred.

Major General Stoneman has also ta
ken his stand with President Johnson.
ser.The niggeritedsay that the County
Commissioners and Directhrs of the Poor,
during the last several years, spent more
money than did those in office before the
war. Of course they did, as any fool
might know. Prices of all sorts have
been higher by from two to six hun
dred per cent. But-if these Radicals,
with the extremists of the South, had
not "kicked up" a war, local expendi
tures would have been no greater than
before it occurred. The Radical leaders
are themselves at fault In this matter, as
well as in 'regard to all the increase of
taxation, and the people, who have to
bear these burdens, should not forget
them for it. -

Another. Tape- Worm Expelled.--On
Sunday last, Dr. George Frederick Feis
tel, who has acquired quite a fame in
the-extermination of tape worms, succeed
ed in another marvellous operation, in
the case of a little girl, thirteen and a
half years old, a daughter of Mr. Daniel
Ilgenfritz, who resides on the farm of
Judge Black, near this Borough. He
extracted one of that formidable species
known as the 'mina latl \ solium, forty
feet in length, and with q Ite a number
ofsmaller once. He was a dayand a half
occup'ed with this extraordinary ease.
The girl had been in delicate health for
some time, and occasionally subject to
spasms in consequence of this monster.
We are informed that three physicians,
one of whom was from Philadelphia, pre
scribed for her, but without relief. It
generally takes Dr. Feistel about eight
hours to expel one of these monsters from
the system ; in this, however, he was
over thirty-six hours, proving it to have
beea a most malignant case. The girl,
we are told, is now in fine spirits and is
quite wB. Persons wishing to procure
the medical services of Dr. George Fred
