VOLUNTEER NOTES. [BY RIFLEMAN.] The recruiting question appears to be the chief matter under discussion in^this district iusfc at present, although there does not seem to be a lartre nnmber available, but at Towyn and Aberdovev^fc is unnecessary to point out that but very few more ZrJZy01* uAt D°'z°n" I eecSad IT" "i'7.
