Taa Aimt Hoimui.?If one brllned tbe atatrtiwnU la regard to tbe hosp'.tt'.s here published 1r some of the Northern paper*, be would br forced to come to the ?*me conclnsinn as Sir John Prlngle, a British worthy who flourished V)V?B'd? tbe cloM of th# ISth rentnnr and urtui. * speaking of the ca mpalgns of that era, expressed the opinion that 'hospitals were imonu the chief causes of mortality In armies " All vrfeo know i anything of the matter, however, are aware that I those Institutions iranng us are situated in the P most airy and healthful localities; are fitted up with rverv arrangement conducive to the comfort of the sick and wounded, and are conducted In a-cordance with the teachings of science and dictates of humanity Statistics, whenever they ar?* published, will bear us out in these assertions. Take for Instance the hospitals la Georgetown. In one of these (the Union) out of 61*2 sick and mounded men admitted since May 25th. when the hospital was opened, only 13 have died In the other (at Miss English's Seminary) out of 250 patients admitted since Jnly 23, when the hospital w*? opened, only 2?fcave died. The'e are now two Army hospitals in Georgetown and three In Washington?besides the one recently opened on E street and the hospital for contagious diseases on Capitol H1U Of the three mentioned, one is at the old Infirmary building <nesr the City Hall) and is in charge of the *?l?Ws of Mercy, and usually contains about 2<iO patients; another Is on C street, and Is devoted to aick and wounded regulars; the third Is at Columbia College building, and with the hospital tents pitched in the vicinity will accommodate romfortably nearly 500soldiers. Half that number are now there Of the Georgetown hospitals we are able to speak more particularly, having visited them our afternoon this week Of these the largest is In the Union Hotel building on Bridge street, opened on the '29th day of May. It has beds to acc-Mnmodate 230 patients, and in spite of state ments to tbe contrary, baa never bad more than within it* wall* Tbe rooms are spurious, and tbe full number of patient* might be comfortably accommodated. &> the celling* are high, tbe window* numerous and large, and the arrangements for ventilation quite as good a* In the bmldlnga of lbe same cia?* anywhere The patients appear to be cheerful and contented, and ?peak In tbe highest term* of the kindness of their attendants, and gratefully ar-knowledge many favt>rs from tbe citizen* of Georgetown. W e made tbe tour of the establishment yesterl day, and if disposed to b? ever so fastidious and hypercritical could have found no fault with the ittendant* for lack of order or cleanliness At he time oi our vi*it there we-e 133 patients la the house, and of these about 00 were wounded I'be last death was that of J as Uarbett, of tbe 13U? New York regiment, who died a day or two since, of pneumonia ^ V\. e talked with many of the wounded?there was private Bugby, po<w fellow, of one of the Connecticut regiments, who bad bis shoulder shattered at Vienna by a Minle bullet, and has lain In the hospital ever since, seven long week*, sad borne hi* sufferings with the greatest patience nt?d fortitude Forty piece* of bone have been extracted, and he Is new, It is hoped, on tbe road to recovery He 1* laying on a water bed," fgu'ta percha tilled with water,I the only one in tbe hou*e One member of tbe New Y ork id regiment we saw, Jan.es Mnc>n, bad hi* rigbt b bd dreadfully mangled by a fragment of shell at Bull Run.

We also vtsited the hospital at Miss English's Academy, located a few hundred yards north of the 4i Union," oiTelevated ground, in one of the moet healthy, quiet and pleasant neighborhood* in Georgetown It was opened July 23d. and contained, at the time of our visit, 148 patients, of whcm one-third, probably, were soldiers wounded In the late bfttle It has beds for and can conveniently accommodate 160 patients Dr. Joseph R Smith is In charge, and we were shown through the ward* bv his accommodating assistant, Dr W. H For wood. Cleanliness and good order prevailed, and the patients all appear to be well car?-d for The rooms are high and airy, and the corridors and windows and doors are so arranged ts to afford thorough ventilation. No more suitable building could be found. The range for cooking Is of the most approved construction. and has an arrangement for heating water, which can be forced through pip^a to the bed-rooms, of which tberfla one in each story Thus hot or cold water can be used at will for lathing. On the east side of the building there are long porches,with doors opening on tbein from each story, where convalescent patients can sit ana ma tne news, or smoke tbeir pipe*, as we a w some doing la tbe cool of tbe evening. Tbe yard Id tbe rear la cool and shady, and very pleasant for fever patient*?of which there are many here?to look oat upon We are glad to chronicle tb?e efforts at human zing tbe war Everyone may do something for tbe comfort of tbe aics and wounded, and no exertions should be spared to relieve tbeir sufferings.

They are being distributed by Georgetown ladles, wbo have been unremitting in their efforts to do good at the Georgetown Military Hospital. In this connection we will state that we have received from the wounded soldiers of the late battle, a communication, dated from the U. 8. general hospital at Georgetown yesterday, in which they tender their sincere thanks to kind friends in that city for favors received They mention the Costen family of Weat Georgetown, who, living two miles from the hospital, have Kaar mmmtnlhinn In .HontUna' Mm QaU. wv uniciuiatiii^ i ss ?ucil o?vcu?iuu#| ?* ? * ?u ** man, who has been like an angel of mercy, and Mr. and Mra Vanderwerken, of Washington street, whe have showered favors upon them To the ladles ot the Institution they return thanks for taelr unceasing attention, and say "they have been to us as mothers and sisters, sacrlffclne the comforts of their homes to our necessities ?? They also acknowledge their obligations to many kind lady frleuds who are not known by name. Thk Small Pox?Shall it bk spread through oci city ??Editor Star: I desire, through the columns of your paper, to rail the attention of the authorities, military and civil, to what seems to me and other citizens as a very serious oversight. If not absolute outrage, in locating tbe ?maU-pox hospital in the thickly-settled portion of our city For a month or more past, soldiers afflicted with this terrible disease have been quartered at a private house, used as a hoxpltal, and located on First street east, between B and C sts north?less than two squares distant from the Capitol Itself' Tbe neighborhood around Is densely settled ; and the location of such a pest bouse in the very midst of a large population is, to say the least, a most strange and Inexcusable proceeding. The pump whence th* water ttsed there Is obtained stands near by, and is the only one to supply a large number of the citizens of the neighborhood. How can it be otherwise than that the disease should pread In the vicinity? Every day, Inmates of the hospital appear on the streets and visit the shops in the neighborhood, just in the condition to spread the diseaseWhy was not the hospital located out of the city? We have a right to protest, and do protest, most vehemently yet ret(>ertfully, against having our own and our family's lives thus wantonly and needlessly endangered. We ask that the authorities at once remove this pest house from our midst A Citizen of tub Nkiohborhood. Washington, Aug. 9, 1861. Center Market.?The gangways of the market were jammed to-day as usual by crowds of gossiping women, who lingered by the hour in the passages, airing th* ir vocabulary In company with all they met as Idle as themselves, and thus thoroughly stopping off the ingress or egress of those having legitimate business there If Government Is bothered to make the "blockade of the southern coast effectual," Why the mischief doesn't It collect a few canine* nf these wlH?.hnnn?l willow-basketed market gossips and post them down that way.
