Important to Volunteers.

--Capt. William C. Humphreys, of the Eighth Georgia Regiment, writing to the Atlanta papers, from Winchester, on the 1st inst., says:

‘ Allow me through your columns to inform all volunteers who have not purchased side arms that it is useless for them to do so, as they will not be allowed to carry them after they are mustered into service. The money each would spend for a pistol will do them great good if brought in money. There are men here following the army round to buy pistols of the volunteers when orders are given to dispense with them, which orders are issued as fast as the different regiments arrive in camp. It will be money thrown away to buy pistols. Those who are here buying are doing so for speculation, knowing these to whom they sell them will not be allowed to use them.
