Recruits Wanted.

--Several of the military companies now forming want recruits. We would suggest to young men, that it is more to their credit to volunteer than to be drafted. The Jackson Guard, which left for Lewisburg last Tuesday, and who are, no doubt, now with the forces under Gov. Wise, have a recruiting office at their late headquarters, St. Charles Hotel. The Captain wishes to increase the number of his men to the full complement allowed by law, 104. Applicants for admission will, therefore, be received for a short time. This company, it will be remembered, is named after the martyred Jackson, of Alexandria.--The officers are admirably adapted for their respective posts. Volunteers will meet with good treatment under them. They are Hiram B. Dickinson, (an old Blue,) Captain; E. A. Miller, 1st Lieutenant; George Hart, 2d Lieutenant; William Fisher, 3d Lieutenant. The State needs men. Remember that.
