"Volunteers Wanted." - This is the title of a tract now being published by Macfarlane & Fergusson for the Baptist Colportage Board. It is from the pen of Rev. Ro. Ryland, D. D., president of Richmond College, and will doubtless be read with interest and profit by that important class of the community to whom it is especially addressed. Dr. Ryland has been laboring with commendable zeal for the spiritual good of the soldiers stationed at the College, as also at several adjacent encampments. He has two sons in the army.
