Partisan Rangers.I have to-day received authority from the Secretary of War, at Richmond, to raise a corps of Partisan Rangers, to serve in the southern part of this State, for the war, where they are most urgently needed at this time, to check and intercept the marauding parties of our vandal enemies, who are every day committing robbery and murder upon Mississippi soil. They must be driven back. Bold, true, and earnest men, of any age, will be received in this corps; but no others are wanted, or will be retained. Each man will furnish his horse, saddle, bridle, double-barrel shot-gun or rifle, and clothing. Fifty dollars bounty and commutation paid to all who join this corps now. We will rendezvous at Jackson, Mississippi, on Tuesday, the tenth June next. Those wishing to join will find a list at Messrs. Allen, Ligon and Co.'s, Jackson.
