als around the city, complaining of their treatment. The charges against some of the officials are of every character, including inattention to the sick and wounded, peculation and speculation in the provisions furnished by the Government, drunkenness, and some crimes too disgraceful for publication. Unfortunately for the ends of justice, if these complaints are well founded, they are nearly always contained in anonymous letters, and, of course, cannot be published. They contain a good deal of bad grammar and infinitely worse spelling; but there is a simple earnestness about them, and an humble tone of entreaty for better treatment, that secures much of the confidence and sympathy of the reader. As the writers place it out of the power of the press to aid them, we would suggest that they address their complaints to Doctor Francis Sorrell, Inspector-General of Hospitals. In this way the derelict officers of the hospitals can be brought to punishment and less writing paper wasted.
