•Weintend to thlk this week of the most de

."1- 1 110 a.,vforld of memory floods upon the mind,
if net the heart, 4 the mere mention of the
word. • We wonder whether the maiden when
ebe lookssovek heralbmn filled with' her victims,
lliemother when she sees her children, the youth
when he glances at his stolen portraits of bean
s tiful young ladies; etc., do not bless the man
who first thought of photograph albums. On'
'the other hand we opine that many a one has
mursed the miserable idealist for the same inven
'Non: We' are modest, and don't admire either
-blessing or cursing; but we admitthat so far as
we know the idea IS OURS.'
.., ',Some twelve years since,-we were engaged
New York with a publisher whose leading
_-business was the manufacture of the old flush
:lima albums that were expected to be filled,
with "The-rose-is-red,-the violet's blue, Sugar's
sweet-and-so-are-you "—style of poetry. Our
. If . mployer failed in business, and the of
his bindery, with whom'we were quite intimate,
tbOtight out thelindery, and with-a partner con=
tinned the old business. Soon after, we being
.4m business at NeW York, went to the theatre
•With these two gentlemen. Before the.ctirtain
-rose, one of. them said to us; "business is dull
1 2:with us now, can't ybwthink if something new
that we can get ail' We felt flattered by the
compliment, and pronaised "to think." By the
, time the' first act was over, we exclaimed, "Pisa.'
tograph'alburns."' "FORTY what!" " Photo
igraph albums," was our reply. "What's that ?"
We went into, a long explanation, with a fore
.f.fght that now readers us very conceited on the
"fanbjecto, They took hold of the idea as real me
•chanics can, experimented sometimes success
soinetimes the contrary. Their books
went forih, Were taken to France, came back
improved, they improved, France improved again
on them, and so the struggle went on, until—
. Well, We visited their bindery last week, and
10, the results of four years of hard labor and in
domitable enterprise. Eighty hands at work,
work 'that is (.(v!iiderf.(l the hest in the United
States. We spent-aft "afternef. a, in the bindery,
and tce hope a *deicription of the manufacture
will, not be unacceptable to our readers. The
. white cards on each hoard are printed with the
gilt herders around them, and then punched, 'af
ter which they are pasted on the inside filling;
each board consisting of thr,ee parts. These are
bound together to the required .thickness ; and
the ends cut by a self acting, vibrating cut
,machine, (price $475.) Then the front
'edge is cut by u curved (price $300.) so
,that,the.beyel isia coraplete curve. One half of
. the curve is cut at a time; the middle card be
ing the guide . for the second cat. The books
are -now screwed up in presses to be scraped On
the edges with a: steel knife to make them per
fectly smooth, then rubbed with a preparation
Of red chalk and mirriatio acid, burnished with
,ari,agate,-covereil with the white of an egg, in
the proportiOn of one egg to about two-thirds
of a pint of water; after which gold leaf is float
ed on - while wet; the edges let dry, and last of
41l1•burniilikd with a blood stone. Fifteen pres
ses' are used for this purpose. The - jointing is
done on a machine made expressly for the pur
pose, (east s37s.)—thZt \ process being some
what likethat Of, book. backing. The head bands
and liniliare hove l put On, there being a secret
--. in thin Which'in agreat measure makes the dill
ferenee between si_good and a bad book. The
edges are all papered up to preserve the,gilding
t.-from tarnishing. All the ornamental work on
-the edges is-done by hand by first class artists.
'K. carver in wqod is kept *constantly employed
in-cutting out designs for panrietworli.. By a
~,patent process, dies are
,sunk to press pannels
out of binder's board, thirty per cent cheaper
than. by the old •way. They can get 'up a new
: die in twenty-four hourS, alter 'which the pan.
','nels can be increased•_indefinitely. One of the
:greatest improvements in panne' work consists
in the application of a metal cover that fits the
-leather into the pannels; rubbing-it down more
.perfeetly than by baud. A stamping and gild
,big machine costs about $7OO. The imprOve
''inents in panelling machinery during the last
, •
yitar alone, have cost this establishment. not less
than $5,000. The clasping, blacking up pan- 1.
hell, boxing, etc.`, employs a great number of t
',WOrlimen and women. it is pleasant to ee la

regiment, returned home with the Franklin
companies, on furlough, on Friday last. He
was not well—having suffered most of the wa)
home, and was quite feeble when he reached
the Station at Scotland. His great anxiety tor
home induced him to walk from the warehouse
to the carriage and he got into it without any !.
assistance. - Soon after he complained of feel- t."
Mg very much prostrated, and leaned his head '!
on the shoulder of his brother, and died in e
few minutes. His brother did not apprehend
his Sanger until he noticed a convulsive tremor
of his limbs, and before ,the presence of , the
arch-destroyer was realized, the young soldier
had yielded his spirit to the God who gave it / 1

THE B oli KTY 4/it:Tems.—The Adjutant '
General has issued instructions to Lieut. Col.
Bomford, Adting Assistant Provost Marshal of
Pennsylvania, that in cases where
. the muster-
in-rolls of veterans re-enlisting in the field are
deficient, in not showing the particular district.l
to which such - men desire to be assigned, the
Provost : 3farshal of the State, at Harrisburg,,,
has full anthorityto prepare duplicate assign
ment rolls, on demand being made bynny body
of .veteran troops so situated,- through* , their
commanding officer. The proper credit will be I
given through the Adjutant General's office, Oft
suchassignment rolls; and no diffieU , lty need be
,apprehended by veterans, as to giving credit to . I
my ward, borough or township, p rovided prom pt

have not heretofore been counted: - t • .A•
Gas. Prim SWEL passed 'throe Martins
burg on Monday, on his way to.assume com
mand of the Department of West Virginia, and
was greeted with artillery salutes as became
the occasion; whereupon extravagant rumors
became rife of a rebel advance and bloody fight
ing just acrosic the river. Some of our citizens
indulged in the sensation during the whole day,
and made most exciting and vigorous inquiries
of almost everybody whf didn't know anything
nbout it. - Had Gen. Couch's headquarters been
fifty miles off; they would doubtless have tele
graphed }dm to know how mani rebels were at
the river and how soon they would be here; but
as ho was within one minutes' walk, and the in
t:urination would have cost nothing, they didn't
take the trouble. Gen. Lee is just about as'
likely to, invade "Pennsylvania in force now as
he is to make a march to the moon.. .

enEnrrED.—The three companies of the 77th,
which re-enlisted in i rent - icsaee and are now
home on furlough, made arrangements • with
Col. Boinford, Provost Marshal General of the
State at Harrisburg. to have their rolls correct
ed, so that they could be credited to the dis
tricts of Franklin county, and' receive local
bounties. They have accordingly been credit
ed to 'bub-districts desiring them, and liave
received, as veterans so well deserve, the boun
ties paid by townships. It' Weald have bee'n
the grossest injustice had such •tropps as Capt.
Battery .and. the 77th been conk , -

recruits were receiving it. -

information respecting the rel;el Julny In
Pely. 25 . *!_
Ofie=of Gen. Lee's orderlies, private Taylor;
of the Fourth Virginia Garailry, came into our
lines yesterday, and arrived here to-day. He
hats been in the rebel army about fifteen months,
and the last three months has been on duty at
Gen. Lee'S Headquarters its orderly to General
Lee, whose. winter quarter, are upon the read
from Ordpge -Court House to Verdiersville f
abdut two miles from the former place. -
Lee lives in a tent without _ any floor in
it, buying refused to have one put iu as' '
were having done. He keeps very Much to
hintself;* never--drinks or swears, atf,is very
p . opular with. the army, who, have implicit reli
ance in the old man. . ' ,
Gen: J. B. Stuart has his headquarters about
two miles from Lee's headquarters, and , on the
road to Robinson's river. His camp on the
side of the mountain, in the woods. His force'
is reduced by casumiltfes, desertion, by, loss of
horses, and icy going home torecruit, until they
have scarcely enough men 'to do camp. duty
with. Job. ,Stuart is very gay, drinks: had
whisky; and giies a great many parties, at which
he entertains a, great many friends from the
army and from the'surniuding country.
Mr. Taylor is a young man, and has relatives
in Ohip. His, chances for knowing the strength
and condition-of the rebel army Were gimod,und!
his story,is credited at the _ War Department,
and he' has been gitentransportation'to Cin
cinnati. He says there are-not now left in the
vicinity - of Orange. Court House,lnlee's entire
command, over- twenty-tive thousafid men, if
there are that many; that the last month Lee
hail been giving furloughs liberally to nil who
•wonld re-enlist, to go home .td,recruit; that
from fifteen, to thirty days are given them. '
-Gen. Lee tells his officers that the Yankees
(will be filling up their armies in.:March and he
»must he ready for them. liesays he with have
'sixty • thousand men, by that time and he can
bold double that number in check. When we
made, our last move wogs the RaPidan, while
Butler, threatened Richmond, they were appris
ed of our movement when it commenced by
Citizens coming in, and whemi our troops crossed
the rivet and surprised their pickets, Gen. Lee
was engaged in sending amen to Richmond by
