A Commendable enterprise.

Rev. Dr. Hoge, in view of the importance of providing some useful employment for the leisure hours of soldiers in our neighborhood, has procured, and had removed to "Camp Lee," one of the large tents belonging to the city, where a reading room will be established for the free use of all the men who choose to avail themselves of it. He has already collected a little library, which he is anxious to increase to a large one. We hope he will be universally sustained in this praiseworthy enterprise by our citizens. In every family there are a few books and magazines, new and old, which the owners would readily spare to such an object. Any kind of book will answer which is moral, instructive, and entertaining — only send them at once. Dr. Goge (corner of Main and 5th streets,) will take charge of them, and when the Camp is removed, have them added to the Library of the Young Men's Christian Association.
