50 MEN WANTED FOR WHEELER'S LIGHT BATTERY now organizing in Buffalo.
The Governor has appointed Capt. A. M. WHEELER, late of the 21st N. Y., to organize a Battery of Light Artillery. It is the only Light Battery recruiting in the State. It is the finest arm of the Service—much easier than cavalry or infantry. No knapsacks to carry, no long marches, no picket duty. The Highest Bounties Paid.
For Veteran Volunteers who re-enlist within 60 days from June 28th, 1863,
$402 00
State Bounty, 75 00
Total, $477 00
$40 on being mustered in with the Company and the remainder in sums of $50, at intervals of two and six months, during enlistment. Men who shall be honorably discharged for wounds at any time, will receive the whole Bounty. Men who have served over nine months and who re-enlist are entitled to this large Bounty. If the Government does not require the troops for three years, the whole Bounty will be paid up when discharged.—The whole bounty due will be paid to the heirs of those who die in service.
For Recruits $175 00
Apply at the Recruiting Office opposite Nicks' Tobacco Store, on Water Street.

CAPT. WHEELER'S BATTERY ORDERED TO FORTRESS MONROE.—A letter from Captain Wheeler, dated Camp Barry, 23d inst., announces that his Battery, the 33d N. Y., has been ordered to Fortress Monroe, and was to sail on the following day. Captain Wheeler is ordered to report to Gen. Butler for assignment, undoubtedly to Gen. Smith's command. All letters to members of the Battery should now be directed to Washington, D. C.

FROM WHEELER'S LIGHT BATTERY. We learn that Sergeant Thos. E. Berry, late of the 2d Maine Battery and Wm. P. Northrup late of the 89th N. Y., have been appointed to Lieutenantcies in the 33rd (Wheeler's) Light Battery. The appointments are said to be good ones.
The Battery is still at Bermuda Hundreds. It was under Butler at Fort Darling and has been engaged in repelling the numerous assaults made on Butler's position. The list of casualties is not reported yet.

MEN FOR WHEELER'S LIGHT BATTERY.—By reference to an advertisement elsewhere, it will be seen that about twenty-five more men are wanted for the 33d Light Battery now at Camp Barry, Washington, and commanded by the gallant Capt. A. M. Wheeler. It had been supposed than men now enlisting could not be transferred to the artillery service, but a decision just received from the War Department sets the matter to rights, and authorizes the regular Recruiting Agents to receive recruits for Capt. Wheeler's organization. This is a chance which should not be neglected by any man who contemplates enlisting. By making application to any of the agents to-day or to-morrow, he can receive the present large bounties, and secure a place in what is considered one of the most advantageous arms of the service.

DEATH OF LIEUT. W. J. BURT.—A telegram received from Washington last evening, announces the death of Lieut. W. J. Burt, of Wheeler's Light Battery, who died in the hospital, of typhoid fever, yesterday afternoon. Lieut. Burt was formerly a private in the 21st regiment, and served with honor through the campaign in which it was engaged. He subsequently assisted Capt. Wheeler in organizing the Battery in which he commanded as a Lieutenant. He will he deeply mourned by his many friends and relatives in this city. The remains will arrive here on Wednesday in charge of his uncle, Mr. Harris.
