Winter Quarters. – On the hill east of Richmond, known as Hospital Hill, or Chimborazo Heights, there has suddenly sprung up a city, which, while it does not rival the metropolis in architectural construction, makes a very formidable show in the number of its houses. These buildings have been put up for winter quarters, and will furnish accommodations for thousands of troops. It is worth any one’s trouble to go and see the new city of Chimborazo.
