An Appeal for Refrigerators. - Send them to Chimborazo Hospital. This immense establishment, now containing nearly 4,000, including more than 300 wounded, is greatly in want of refrigerators of large size, so that the small amount of ice which we have may be economically dispensed, and do as much good as possible.

Also, as many champagne baskets as possible.
