Be Careful of Your Money
When life is full of health and glee,
Work, work, as busy as a bee !
And take this gentle hint from me—
Be careful of your monn,y! .
You'll find it trhe, that friends - are few
When you are short of money.
The single grain cast in the mould
May spring and give a thousand fold,
More precious than its wealth in gold !
Be careful of your money !
The grain you sow to stalks may grow—
Be careful of your money
But do not shut sweet Mercy's doors,
When Sorrow pleads or Want implores ;
To help to heal misfortune's sores,
Be careful of your money !
To help the poor who seek your door,
Be careful of your money 1
Would you escape the beggar's lot,
The death-bed of the tippling sot,
And live in sweet Contentment's cot,
Be careful of your money !
And if you need a friend indeed,
Be careful of your money !
A GOOD WHITEWASH.—This is a sub
ject upon which our farmers require
"line upon line and precept upon pre
cept." Whitewash is one of the most
valuable articles in the world, when pro
perly applied. It preventsfnot only the
decay of wood, but condttes greatly to
the healthiness of all buildings, whether
of wood or stone. Outbuildings and
fences, when not painted, should be sup
plied once or twice every year with a
good coat of whitewash, which should
be prepared in the following way : Take
a clean, water-tight barrel or other suit
able cask, and put into it half a bushel
of lime. Slack it by pouring water over
it, boiling hot, and in sufficient quantity
to cover it five inches deep, and stir it
briskly till thoroughly slacked. When
the slacking has been effected, dissolve
it in water, and add two pounds of sul
phate of zinc, and one of common salt.
These will cause the wash to harden,
and prevent its cracking, which gives
an unseemly appearance to the work.
If desirable, a beautiful cream, color may
be communicated to the above wash, hy
adding three pounds of yellow ochre, or
a good pearl or lead color, by the addi
tion of lamp, vine or ivory black. For
fawn color, add four pounds umber—
Turkish.or American—(the latter is the
cheapest,) one pound Indian red, and
one pound common . lampblack. For
common stone color, add four pounds
raw umber, and two pounds lamiblack.
This wash may be applied with a com
mon whitewash brush, and will be found
mach superior both in appearance and
durability, to common whitewash.—

MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 6, 1865.
Local Military Reminiscences.
Before the organization of the "PENN
SYLVANIA GRAYS" or "Donegal Rangers"
and even before the organization of
their immediate predecessors, the
"Washington Grays," a company of
"Grays" had been organized in Wrights
ville, Yotk county, which was comman
ded by Capt. CARR. < Thia company
paid a visit to Marietta in the summer
of 1829; and the first impulse towards
forming'a Military company in Marietta
at that period, was perhaps the result
of this visit. A. greater etimulent how
ever consisted in the results of a visit
of the Lancaster Volunteer Battalion
under the command of Maj. 11.AlisatonT,
on their return from a Volunteer En
campment at York, Pa., in September
1830; for, although the "Washington
Grays" had been previously organized,
they had gone through that ceremony in
citizen's dress, and from the want of
harmony among the officers, they bad
not been so far uniformed and drilled,
as to enable them to accept of an invi
tation to participate in the York En
campment. It may have been in the
month of AnglEtst that Maj. Hambright's
command passed through Marietta, for
I heard some of the men relate the de
tails of a torch-light procession of the
entire Encampment which took place
the evening before, in honor of the three
days French Revolution, when Charles
X. was over I brown, the news of which
had then just reached them. I think—
without refering to the records—that
that memorable revolution took place
on the first three days of July 1830.
This visit affected me very much, and if
ever I felt a desire to don a uniform and
play the soldier it was at this time, for
we all felt—that is the verdant impul
sive ones amongst us—like going to
France, to help Lafayette and the Re
publicans, to put down monarchy and
establish a Democracy.
The Lancaster Battalion at that time,
to the best of my knowledge, was com
posed of four companies; namely, the
"Lancaster Phalanx," the "Washington
Blues," the "Lafayette Grays" and the
"Jackson Rifles." Possibly there might
have been an additional- company of in
fantry or artillery, for they had a. brass
cannon named "Penelope," and all the
necessary carriages, mountings and im
plements that belonged to it. It was
through the instrumentality of Capt.
Flury that the. Lancaster Battallion
passed through Marietta on its return
home on this occasion.
Capt. Flury was a short, beardless,
juvenile looking man, but full of spirit
and military ambition, and I think im
agined himself deeply tinctured with
the Napoleonic animus—at least his
admirers flattered themselves (if not
the tiapt.) that he was the personifica
tion of Napoleon I. in the realms of
Young America. He kept the "Ferry
House" in front street, just below thti
Rail Road House, (Upper Station)
which was not then built yet; and his
house was a sort of "Military Head-
Quarters," and on that account was
much visited by those afflicted with
"military on the brain" in those days of
profound peace. Thither a trio of us
were wont to frequently resort to take
lessons and practice upon the Drums
and Fife„of which the Captain was at
this period passionately fond. These
musical exercises would be alternated
with his own "sublime scr .pings" on
the violin, but when the drums and fife
"staitick up," no manipulations of Catgut
or anything else could be heard ; and
often on passing the house in recent
days, `I have wondered how it could pos
sibly have accommodated so many visi
tors, or how its inmates could survive
the beatings .of "sheepskin" and the
"screaming" of the fife, which took place
almost nightly, in those early days I
speak of. The house looks small com
pared with the stately Rail Road House,
just half a-square above it, but then, to
our boyish apprehension, it seemed
"large and commodious."
A fter the .irganization.of the "Penn
sylvania Grayii'll and "Rangers." an Ar
tillery company, was formed at Mount
Joy in this county, the name of whose
first Captain I cannot recall, but subse
quently it wail commanded by Capt.
David MeNeeley. This company, call
ed the "Washington Artillerists," to
gather with the "Pennsylvania Grays"
and the "Donegal Rangers," 'were or
into an independent command,
called-the "UNION BATTALION: OA BONN
GAL," at May town, in the spring of 1833.
Maj. Frederick .Haines—thed Jiving on
the "Helios Farm," ries,. Marietta was
eltictbee : dinnealiiTer' , giitisjide
and continued its commander until the
spring or summer of 1838, when the two
Marietta companies attached to it, dis
banding, it ceased to have a legal exis
tence. Maj., H. , was more esteemed,
by officers and men, for his kindlentle
manly bearing, and natural goodness of
heart, than for any special degree of
military talent. Joseph Tate Anderson
was elected Adjutant, and served in
that office during the entire existence
of the Battalion. Adjt. A., without
making any military pretensions, was
perhaps the superior in military intel
lectuality, but had not the military
bearing and commanding appearance
that the Maj. had. Ido not know two
other men in the Battalion, (or perhaps
out of it,) who were more generally es
teemed than those two officers were in
those days. I do not recollect of a
single altercation or misunderstanding
between them and the officers and men
under them daring their entire command
of the battalion. Joseph Lytle , was elec
ted the first Quartermaster, but resign
ing afterwards, John Barr was elected
in his place, and served in that capacity
with efficiency until the Battalion was
disbanded. Dr. Jacob Glatz and Dr.
Wm. S. Maxwell were at different pe
riods appointed the Surgeons of the
Battalion, but I have no recollection
that either, of them ever served or ap
peared on parade, but I think that Dr.
Nathaniel Watson did.
Contemporary with the military or
ganizations of Marietta and Mount Joy
of this period, were the "Columbia
Grays" commanded, first by Capt Yet
ter, but subsequently by Capt. Haughey;
the "Columbia Hunters" a rifle corps,
commanded by Capt. Way ; and the
"Manor Guards," of Washington bo
rough, commanded by Capt. Urban.
These three companies formed a Bat
talion. under the command of Maj. Jo
seph M.osher. Subsequently an "artil
lery" company was formed in*Columbia,
and attached to this Battalion, com
manded by Capt. Preston B. Elder.
These seven volunteer companies, com
posing two Battalions, were all in exis
tence at the'same period in one Brig
ade, and a great deal of talking and
"manceuvering" took place, having for
its end the organization of a Volunteer
Regiment, but it was never accomplish
ed, perhaps owing to a difficulty in mak
ing a proper or equitable division of the
field and staff officers.
The uniforms of the "Mount Joy Ar
tillerists" was a blue coatee, trimmed
with yellow and red ; a high bell crown
ed leather hat, with red curd and pom
poon ;. white waist belts and cross belts.
The "Pennsylvania, Grays" wore a light
gray coatee trimmed with black ; bat
the same as the former, only trimmed
to snit the uniform. The pantaloons of
these companies corresponded with
their coats in winter, and in summer
they wore white pantaloons. The
"Rangers" wore green frock coats and
paritalooris trimmed with yellow bind
ing; buttons and fringes, a la Indian.
Their cap was a mong rel "Hungarian"
affair, with a shovel brim and black os
trich feathers, exceedingly unmilitary in
appearance, but infinitely more pleasant
to the head than the semi-helmet, semi
firebucket, worn by the two former
companies. The "Manor Guards" wore
blue uniforms trimmed with white and
red ; the "Colembia Grays," a gray
uniform similar to the "Pennsylvania
Grays," only much darker in color.
The "Hunters" wore a uniform similar
in cut and form to that of the "Rangers'
except that it was bltie trimmed with
red. The "Columbia Artillerists" wore
blue dress coats trimmed with red.
All of these companies wore upon their
shoulders ,woollen appendages called
"Faus." They looked like huge-hairy
caterpillars, crawling over the seam of
the "sleeve head" of the coat. The
non-commissioned officers bad an addi
tional fringe of gold or silver , thread,
and.the commissioned officers all wore
gold or silver epaulets—or at least
made of metal of the color of those
named. The Artillery and Infantry
companies had 3 rows. of buttons (nine
in each row) upon the breasts of their
coats, put on "coffin-shaped" ; the form
er yellow metal and the latter white.
The skirts and cuffs were also turned up
and mounted• with stars and button's.
The breasts between the buttona were
braided, and "crow's-feet" or "clover
leaves" were • w,orked behind the two
outer rows. Such military equipmenttc
wouldcet a sorry figere at the , present
day ; and "would not only be exceeding—,
ly fantastical, but also exceedingly

DEATH OF JACKSON'S ADOPTED SON.-
Andrew Jackson, Jr., adopted son of
the late President Jackson, whose death
we lately mentioned without giving par
ticulars, accidentally shot himself while
hunting near the Hermitage, Tennessee,
on Monday week, and died on the Sun
day following of lockjaw. He was a eon
of Mrs. Jackson's brother, Samuel Don-
elson, and a cousin of A. J. Dunelson.
He took his adopted parent's name, and
inherited, at his death, the Hermitage,
and a large cotton plantation in Missis
sippi, both of which, however, passed
out of his hands. He was fifty-six years
of age, and leaves a wife, daughter, and
two sons. The sons cast their lot with
the rebels, both entering the army.
Samuel, the younger, was an officer in
the rebel service, and was killed beyond
Chattanooga. The eldest brother, An
drew Jackson, is a brigadier general in
the rebel army. He terminated his mil
itary career in the surrender of Fort
Morgan, in Mobile harbor, to the Uni
ted States forces, at which time he was
taken prisoner, and is now in our hands.
How TO P impose.— A. party of ladies
and gentlemen were laughing over the
supposed awkwardness attending a de
claration of love, when a gentleman re
marked that if he ever offered himself
he would do it in a collected and bui-
I:MSS like manner. "For instance," he
continued, addressing a lady present,
"Miss S , I have been two years
looking for a wife. lam in receipt of
about three hundred a year, which is on
the increase. Of all the ladies of my
acquaintance, I admire you the most ;
indeed I love you, 'and would gladly
make you my wife." "You flatter me
by your preference," good humoredly
replied Miss S , to the surprise of
all present. "I refer you to my father."
—"Bravo !" exclaimed the gentlemen.
—"Well, I declare 1" said the ladies in
a chorus. The lady and gentleman,
good readers, were married soon after.
Wasn't that a modest way of "coming
to the point, and a lady like method of
taking a man at his word ?"
