A NEW HOSPITAL ESTABLISHED. – A new hospital for the accommodation of our wounded men, has been established in the buildings at the Old Fair Ground, head of Main street formerly the quarters of the City Battalion. – The hospital was opened yesterday for the reception of wounded men, and is under the capable management and direction of Surgeon S. Meredith, and patients are not likely to suffer if assiduous attention can alleviate their pain. The establishment alluded to has been named "Stuart Hospital," in honor of the late Gen. J. E. B. Stuart.
