     WESTPORT, Mo., Feb. 21, 1864.  Dear Sir -- I would most respectfully request you to publish in the columns of the local news of your valuable paper, that I have established a Recruiting Office for the 2d Artillery Missouri Volunteers, at the same locality with the recruiting officer for the 12th Missouri Cavalry Volunteers.  You may please state that I had formerly had the honor of belonging to Totten's renowned Battery of Regular Service, and that the same bounty as granted to all volunteers will be given; also that there is only two days left for the bounty.  A. WACHSMAN, First Lieut. 2d. Artillery Mo. Vols.
