Lieut. Early has been appointed by Gen. Winder a Commissioner to investigate the cases of all soldiers confined in the military guard-houses of the Eastern and Western Districts, so as to expedite their being sent off to their respective regiments — All convalescent soldiers leaving the hospitals hereafter for their regiments will be organized into companies, under commissioned officers, prior to their departure from this city, and after getting to their destination, if there be any difficulty in finding their way to their respective regiments, they will go into action as a company in the manner they leave here. They will get transportation by companies from Crump, whose therefore the organizations of the impromptu companies will be effected.
