New Companies of infantry, artillery, and cavalry, are to be formed at once by that class of citizens upon whom the President is now calling to take the field. In Richmond, if we except the mere sojourners and others who have foreign protection papers in their pockets, there are comparatively few men of the age indicated who are able to bear arms. --Already the metropolis has sent to the field her entire conscript force; but there are scores of others, not contemplated by the President's call, who are ready to defend their homes and firesides with their lives, and who will used no second summons to "shoulder arms." Let the enrollees bestir themselves at once, and thus double the armed force of the South; and let the class of men called upon loss no time in organizing their companies.
