A New Volunteer Company.

The undersigned proposes to raise an Infantry Company. A prompt and general uprising of the men of the South will doubtless settle our difficulties on the close of the present year. Then, let this great work be done, though everything else be left undone. ‘"Our brethren are already in the field; why stand we here idle?"’ From an experience of eight months, I think I know something of the hardships of the camp. They are generally exaggerated. In a company of honest, sober men, no one need suffer in his morals. We expect every man in this company, who conducts himself as a gentleman, to be treated accordingly. As a draft, embracing all men from eighteen to forty-five, is to be made in a few days, it is highly important that every one choose as early as possible those with whom he is to be associated in this great contest. In a draft, you have no such privilege.

Those disposed to join us will report themselves at my office, corner of Twelfth, and Franklin streets, (in the Law Building,) between the hours of ten and two o'clock, where some one will be found to receive them. A bounty of $50, and uniforms, will be given when mustered into the service.
