From the Thu., Apr. 17, 1862 issue

More recruits are wanted for this company forthwith. The conscription will soon he passed, mustering into the service every man in the Confederacy between the ages of 18 and 35, leaving no option with the conscript as to where he shall go, or to what arm of the service he shall belong.

All those who prefer to select the Light Artillery as their service should take at once the last opportunity they will probably have to volunteer. We desire, at the earliest possible moment, to complete our organization and take the field, where all who are fit for service should be, and where they must be soon, either voluntarily or by compulsion.

Those who have been in service know that the Light Artillery is the most agreeable as well as the most effective arm of the service. Come at once, then, while the chance is given you to enlist where you please, and relieve yourselves from the opprobrium of compulsory service.

Recruiting Office, Johnson & Guigon's office, under the Whig Building.
