During the reeent session of the Equal

The advent of spring has brought with it
the customary deficiency in the city treasury,
and . the consequent atmoyanee to parties hav
ing claims upon the corporation of being com
pelled to wait en. indefinete period for their
pay. A large number of % - arrants have been
drawn, over the ability of the city to meet,
and the persons obtaining them are put to the
unpleasant necessity of selling them at a
heavy discount, or keeping, them until the
money is provided for their redemption.
Among these are some who can poorly'afford
to pursue eithrr alternative, and, as might
be expected, there is a vast amount of com
plaint on the subject. We have had occasion
to call attention to this mode of conducting
the city finances every year since our con
nection with the °heartier, and, in doing so
once more, embrace the opportunity-Tro ex
press an earnest hope that it will be avoided
in the future. To say that it is entirely in
excusalde, and discreditable -to the city au
thorities, is merely to utter the common opin
ion of ail. who.are acquainted with the matter.
The credit of the city certainly cannot be so
low that it is unable to male arrangements
for obtaining the money necessary to meet
its present contingencies, and meantime, let
those who are entrusted with the duty of levy
ing the taxes hereafter to be collected see to
'it that enough is provided for to make the
Treasury secure anima any future deficits.
The publication of_ several bounty reports in
our columns affords us an occasion for calling
the attention of township auditors to the fact
that the law requires these statements to be
printed in the two county papers! having the
largest circulation. In several instances,
Radical auditors, in the excess of their parti
zan malignity, have deliberately violated this
clause of the act - and given the statements ex
clusively to papers of their own faith, not
withstanding it is generally known and ad
mittod that the Observer has the most eaten
sive'circulation of any journal in the county.
The law affixes a heavy penalty for violation
of its provisions, and it may be worth while
for auditors to keep that feature in remem
brance. It would seem that good faith alone.
if nothing else, would induce the auditors to
afford tax payers of both sides en opportunity
to read these statements.

A gentleman froin Girard, who is- intitnato
ly arquaiated with the business of Colonel .
Rice, info'rms us that the statement that he
receives' a salary of twenty-six thousand
dollars per year, so far from being an'exag=
aeration, is really less than the truth. The
actual pay that he gets is a., thousand dollars
a week and all expenses paid, during the sea
son, which usually lasts about thirty week..
and during the balance of the year he is ae
liberty to do what he pleases. As he usually
performs a couple of months in the large
cities, aside from his regular engagements,
this would give him an income of about $40,-
000 per annum,'and, we are told, that in
1865 he really received that amount of pay
fcr his services. With such a salary 'it
would seem an easy, matter for. Dan to soon
become a millionaire, but the adage "come
