Temperance Hall Military Hospital . - A correspondent, who is posted on the facts connected with the establishment of the above Hospital, on Church Hill, says, in reference to our recent notice of it, that it was in the main correct, though slightly incorrect in some details. The facts are these: The Hospital was established by the soldiers and societies in connection with the Trinity Methodist and the Leigh Street Baptist Churches , and is supported by contributions from those societies. The Hospital is under the immediate supervision of the ladies of the societies referred to, and will be amply provided for. It promises to do much good; in fact, has done much for the sick and suffering volunteers.
