Partisan Warriors wanted.--The confederate States
government has very recently passed an act legalizing and recommending the organization of Partisan Rangers, and as that character of warfare is doing good service for the country, and the necessity for them is very great at this time, I have, in connection with a number of other gentleman, determined to organize a corps of brave spirits who will go out and harass the enemy, and drive him from our soil.
has invaded the sacred soil of old Tennessee
, and that portion of the country which they have invested is being desolated and destroyed.
They insult our women and maltreat our old men — they burn our homes and lay waste our fields — they desecrate the graves of our friends who have gone.to that bourne from whence no traveller returns — they have set aside the laws of God and man, and it is now high time that we who have not taken part in this struggle should gather ourselves to our tents, and resist these Thugs of the North
to the death.
Let us strike, then, till the last armed foe expires,
Strike for our altars and our fires--
Strike for the green graves of our sires,
God and our native land.
“Oh! Who will, come and go with us,” and fight that we may be free.
None are worthy of it unless they fight for it. We propose to fight, and fight on until the struggle is ended, and our country free--
And when the conflict's over,
In our Southern homes we'll stand,
And sing our leader's praises
In Dixie's happy land!
And all those who are of the same mind, and are able to furnish themselves with a horse, arms and equipments, can enroll themselves with Lieutenant C. L. Brown
, who may be found in the Walker Block
, on Main street. Come immediately.--Memphis Avalanche, May 15
