The Jackson Guard.

--The Yankees are raising regiments of ‘"Ellsworth Avengers."’--Should not Virginians form companies of ‘"Jackson Avengers,"’ to meet them? Captain Hiram B. Dickinson is forming a rifle company, called, in honor of Jackson, the ‘"Jackson Guard."’ We are informed that he lacks a few men to make the full complement required.--Will not our young men come forward at once and join this company, formed to perpetuate on the battle-field the memory of the first martyr in the cause of Southern independence? Capt. Dickinson's headquarters are at the St. Charles Hotel. There is also a recruiting office on 6th street, near Clay.
