Home Guard. --The Home Guard of this city is now in good working order and capable of rendering the most efficient service in case their services are demanded by the exigencies of the times. Though composed for the most part of aged men, a majority know how to use offensive weapons in a way that would be found entirely convincing by any number of "invaders." The battalion is in charge of Col. Wyndham Robertson, assisted by competent aids, who, together with their commander, have at various times subjected the Guard to rigorous drilling. The battalion consists of four companies, each numbering over one hundred men above 45 years of age. Among them are ministers of the Gospel, lawyers, doctors, retired merchants, and men of all other departments of business.
