A chance.

--We have the best authority for saying, remarks the Norfolk Argus, that President Jefferson Davis has accepted a proposition from Ex-Governor Wise to raise a partisan legion, to be formed into a brigade when raised, and to be commissioned as provided by existing law. This, we have reason to know, is vouched by telegraph of May 23d instant, from Montgomery, signed by S. Cooper, A. G.

Here now is an opportunity for all partisan leaders and men who may desire to be commissioned or enlisted. We are informed that the Ex-Governor will make arrangements at an early day to raise this legion.
