Sundries

The weather has been most favorable the last twenty-four hours for our wounded soldier, and all that we have seen seem to be improving rapidly. it repays one to visit the hospitals and see the faces. Examine them carefully and you will not meet a bad one. Patient in suffering, a noble, chivalric soul gleams from each feature. Conquer us ! subjugate us !--folly.

Three negroes were caught on Saturday, attempting to creep through our lines. They were brought to town and handed over to Marshal Alexander, who locked them up to await the master's coming to claim and take them away.

The streets yesterday wore a very quiet aspect, and fewer loungers were seen upon the public thoroughfares than there has been for several days, the Provost guard were buey picking up all stragglers, and sending them to their different regiments. Liquor selfing is still persisted in, but the detective forces are on the lert, and several venders have been caught and about being tried by Court-Martial.
