The Substitute System.--The following advertisements are taken from the Richmond Dispatch of February 18:

A resident of Maryland who has lately run the blockade, wishes to become a substitute for any man who is willing to pay him his price. For particulars inquire at C. A. Brockmeyer's segar-store, No. 21 Main street.

Wanted — A substitute for the war; one of good character, not subject to military draft. A liberal price will be paid if accepted. Apply at my office.--Edw. D. Eacho, 14th st., near Exchange Hotel.

Wanted--Two persons to raise fifteen recruits each for a new volunteer company, for which they will receive lieutenancies. Address M. M. B., Norfolk, Va.

Wanted — this morning, twenty substitutes. I will pay more than can be obtained by any other agent in [57] the city for good substitutes. Apply this morning to T. B. Rees, No. 3 Tenth st., below Main.

Wanted — A substitute on board Confederate States steamer Patrick Henry, as wardroom steward. Apply at the Dispatch office.

Wanted.--to all Subject to Militia Duty.--I want fifty men to man the Game Point Battery at Aquia Creek. All persons not wishing to be drafted in the militia, who are desirous of being convenient to their families, will find this a very desirable post. Substitutes will be received in this company. All persons wishing to enrol themselves will apply at once at the corner of Tenth and Main streets, or at Crawford's saloon on Tenth street. Our country needs fighting men. So come at once. For particulars apply at either of the above places to Wm. J. Dabney, Lieutenant.

Wanted.--Notice to Artillerymen.--I wish it to be distinctly understood that I want to-day fifteen substitutes to go in the very best company, and that the price of bounty is no object to get the men.--Robert Hill, Substitute Agent, Bank street.
