Military organization.

--The military ardor of our people is thoroughly aroused. In every part of the State companies are being rapidly organized, and before the expiration of the twenty days of grace allowed to us by the old tyrant, we shall have twenty thousand volunteers in the field, who will be able to knock the bull's eye at the distance of one hundred yards. Tennessee has a world-wide reputation for courage, and especially is she called, par excellence, the Volunteer State.--We venture the prediction that she does not foretell the little in the present origin.--Nashville Union.
