CHIMBORAZO HOSPITAL.

We would direct the benevolence of those citizens who are engaged in the labor of love and patriotism, or relieving the wants of our sick and wounded soldiers, to the large hospital on our eastern limits, known as Chimborazo Hospital. The number of patients at that Hospital is so great as to require very liberal and frequent contributions; while its remoteness is such as to make it liable to be overlooked. We hope it will be specially borne in mind. We understand that contributions of clothing are now very much needed both for the comfort and cleanliness of the patients. And too much care cannot be stowed in cleaning the buildings which are sure to congregate under such circumstances, without watchful prevention.
