Recruits Wanted. – Forty more recruits are required to fill up Company P, 6th West Virginia Volunteer Infantry, stationed at the Atheneum in the city of Wheeling. The usual government and county boundary will be given to every accepted volunteer. As this company will remain at the post of Wheeling, it affords an excellent opportunity to those who desire to enlist. They will be free from the hardships and privations incident to camp life in the field; receive full rations, good clothing and warm and comfortable quarters. The duty is very light in comparison to what is required by volunteers in the front. Those wishing to enlist will call on Edward Linder, 1st Lieut. Commanding company P, 6th W. Va. Infantry, at the office of the Atheneum.
