Another Hospital for the soldiers.

--A hospital has been opened at Beaver Dam station, Hanover county, on the line of the Virginia Central Railroad, forty miles from Richmond, by Mrs. Henry Carter, the Misses Fontaine, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Hatch, and other ladies of the vicinity, for the reception of convalescent soldiers. The hospital is capable of accommodating about twenty persons, who will have the personal attention of many ladies in the neighborhood; a good physician will also be in attendance. Every attention will be paid the soldiers that can be, and their places will be filled by others as fast as they are removed. Eight of the sick, who have been at the St Charles Hospital, in this city, left for Beaver Dam on Saturday morning last. This is another instance of the kindness shown our soldiers by the ladies of Virginia, and we expect to hear of like institutions throughout the State, by our patriotic women, until we will have a sufficient number to accommodate all who may be sick; and we can assure those persons living in the far South who have brothers, husbands and fathers with us, as well as our own people, that they will be as well provided for and made as comfortable as if they were at their own homes. Never before has such self-sacrifice been made as has been by the ladies of Virginia, and, in fact, throughout the South generally; and we can only hope that they may all live to enjoy that blessed liberty for which the soldier is daily exposing his life.
