CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE SICK SOLDIERS.—
The Ladies Union Relief Association of this town has been actively engaged during the present winter in relieving the wants and ministering to the comfort of the sick soldiers in our midst. The Association has in this way done a vast amount of good, and many a poor sick soldier will doubtless in after years remember with gratitude the kind attention he received from the ladies of Hagerstown while languishing and suffering on his bed of sickness.

As stated in our last, there are now an unusually large number of sick and helpless soldiers in the County Hall, who stand greatly in need of relief from all loyal and charitably disposed persons.— When they were brought here the accommodations provided for them were not adequate to their wants, and but for the aid extended to them by the citizens of the town, and especially the worthy members of the above association, their sufferings would have been greatly augmented. These men are fighting for the safety of our Government and our firesides, and it behooves every friend of law, order and a united country both in town and county, to do all in his power to render them as comfortable as possible in their present afflictions.
