Wayside Hospital. - It may not be uninteresting to our soldiers, or the friends, to know that a wayside hospital has been established in one department of Seabrook's Hospital.

Its object is to accommodate, free of expense, the soldier going home on furlough, or those returning from home on their way to the army who may be detained in the city by missing connections, or awaiting transportation, or from other causes beyond the control of the soldier. We visited the hospital yesterday and noticed numbers of these gallant fellows reposing on their comfortable cots, and enjoying themselves as their conditions admitted of, under the kind treatment and good fare of the gentlemanly Steward of that establishment. They doubtless feel quite at home.
