THE HOSPITAL OF ST. FRANCIS DE SALES. – This excellent institution, established in our city not very long since, by the Sisters of Charity, we learn now contains a large number of our sick soldiers, who are receiving all the attention usually bestowed by that kind, benevolent and self-sacrificing order of the Catholic Church. Such an institution in our city at this time will be highly appreciated.
