save Richmond.--I will be one of one hundred to the gunboat to join any party, officered by determined and resolute officers, to board the whole fleet of gunboats and take them at all hazards, to save this beautiful city from destruction. I am not a resident of this State, but of the confederate States, and if such a scheme can be got up, my name can be had by applying to this office.

Here is another call:

Refugees from the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia: You are requested to meet this morning, at eleven o'clock, at the rooms of the Maryland Society, Pearl street, over the store of Weston and Williams. A tender of our services for the defence of Richmond is the object. of the meeting.

The call is made with the approval of many friends, and signed by myself at their request, as an assurance of its authenticity.

And here another:

notice.--All young men out of the army who are familiar with the use of the rifle, and who have patriotism enough to join a body of sharp-shooters for the defence of our beloved capital, will meet at the Washington Monument this day, at twelve o'clock M., for the purpose of forming a body of sharp-shooters to operate on James River.
