New Light Artillery Company.

--We desire to call the attention of our readers to the advertisement, in another column, of the Crutchfield Light Artillery. This new company is commanded by Capt. Stapleton Crutchfield, a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and an accomplished artillery officer. Having secured a fine battery of six guns, there will be no delay in going into service. The 1st Lieutenant, Mr. Charles E. Wortham, is well known as the popular and efficient Secretary of the Old Dominion Insurance Company, and, we believe, will make a fine officer. The other offices in the company are yet vacant.--No substitutes will be received, and recruits may rely upon getting in a ‘"crack company"’ when they join this one.
