A False report.

We understand that a report has obtained circulation in Halifax county, if not elsewhere, to the effect that the supplies of provisions and delicacies sent from the country for the use of the sick and wounded in the Richmond hospitals, have been sold by hackmen and other employed to convey them from the depots. We have good grounds for stating that the story is entirely unfounded, and assure our country friends that every care is taken that articles intended for the hospitals reach their proper destination. We hope this report will not have a tendency to curtail the supplies which are so necessary to the health and comfort of the gallant, wounded.
