The Lame, the halt, and the blind, to bear arms.--The following advertisement appeared in a late Richmond paper:

wanted — For local purposes, a company of a hundred men, who are not capable of performing service in the field, yet are able to perform duty in the city. None need apply who are capable of field service, and good references will be required as to character. Apply at the office, corner of Broad and Ninth streets.

Jno. H. Winder, Brigadier-General.

--N. Y. Herald, Dec. 17.
