To Graduates and Ex-Cadets of the Va. Military Institute.

--It is proposed to organize, among the Graduates and Ex-Cadets of the Virginia Military Institute, who are not in commission, a select corps of Field Artillery, for immediate service. We trust that when this corps is organized, the fact that we are qualified now to use it effectively will be an argument with the authorities to supply us with the arms, and to give us the privilege to fight as other soldiers in defence of those rights which we deem dearer than life.

All who are willing to join this corps will report or send their names to W. H. Richardson, Adjutant General Va. Forces, without delay, with such side-arms as they can bring with them, and with a full equipment of winter uniform — the Cadet ‘"grey coat,"’ or furlough coat, with the Cadet overcoat.

Many Graduates and Ex-Cadets,
