There is a chance for you to show ►rour patriotism byanlisting n a compaly of Volunteers at Monroe, noworganzing nt the office of the Hon. Ilobort VlcClelland. The Government will nlow you six or seven dollars a rnonih for fighting the Mexicans, and twelve dollars boiiuty for grog money in advance, provided you will enlist for the whole war : and pcrhaps will give you 160 acres of land or so. Th is is such an extraordinary chance for young men who wish to die in a foreign lrnd, oreóme home with a constilution broken down forlife, thnt we publish this nolice gratis for their benefit, and we subjoin the following deüghtful picture from the Monroe Advocate : " Here then is aflorded an opportunity nol only of becoming the so!e owner of 1G0 acres of land. - which, with a little labor, and the uddition of the omount of money which two or three yenrs service in the cause of his country would give to every recruit. would make him and his family independent for 1 í fV, - but of visiting the most delightful part of the United States nnd of Mexico, with every necessary and almost every convenience for the journey, provided al the expense of the government.'' Who would tug and toil for long years with his old fnshioned father on a farm, when he could get such glorious recompense for fighting in the wars of Slavery 1
