The Sick at the hospital in the St. Charles Hotel are greatly in need of nurses. We invoke our good people to come forward and render assistance to these suffering soldiers, of whom, sick and wounded, there are some five or six hundred. Mr. GEO. A. WATT, of the Committee for the Relief of the Sick, will give all necessary information.
