Thb Aimt Hospitals?We continue onr article* on tbe Army Hospitals bv s notice of the one Iocs ted In the Washington Inflrmarr bu'ldli'g on E street. In tbe rear of the City Hill Tbe building (forrrcrlythecounty JM1) and tbe square on wblcb it stands belong to the Government After the present jail was boilt and the prisoners Temoved to it, tbe faculty (of tbe m?dical department) of Columbia College were allowed to use tbe vacated building as an Infirmary for clt1r?ns and strangers Additions were built and improvements made, not the least be' ng the tasteful * arrangement of the court yard In front, In which ebmbbery and flowers were planted. When the Capital was threatened and troops amassed bere for tta defence, It became necessary to provide hospitals for tbe sick and wounded, and this was tbe flrst building used for tbat purpose in the District. Arrangements were made for the transfer and tbe Government resumed possession about tbe Mth of May Since tbat date the other hospitals noticed in tbe Star of Saturday bave been opened, but this one stands preeminent, whether we consider Its Insulated position, allowing tbe admission of light snd air on every side, or the admirable ground plan, which is most favorable for ventilation. ana of which due advantage has been taken In the arrangement of wards and corridors The building is three stories high, snd Is of sn [ shape with a large rectangular addition built at right angles to the center of the main building in tbe rear. There Is ample room In the wards for 20q patients. and they seldom have so many within tbe walls; but dl recti v after the battle at Stone Bridge there were 250 sick and wounded soldiers in the building, many of course, bsvlng to be laid on mr<Ureases in the corridors This wss unavoidable. hut lasted only s dsy or two. the convalescents being immediately removed to other quarters, to make room for tbe serlounly sick and wounded The hospital is now reserved for acute cases, and at present rontalns only 140 patients. There are Ave wall tenta In the rear of the building In which tbe patients suffering with erysipelas have been removed, thai disease being readily communicated to wounded persons Tbey are bere more comfortable probably than they would be in the w*.rds during su?b oppressive weather as we bave hsd tbe last week or two. Tbe wards in wblcb they were formerly, bave been tborrughly cleansed and purified, ar d are now rcadv for the reception of other patients. We notice that the rubkjlsb is being removed from tbe lot on which tbe building stands, snd understand that a fence Is to be built along F treet, thus enclosing tbe square on every side, preparatory to lta being plsnted and beautified This hospital is In cbsrgeof Dr WLIfe. asaistsd bv Drs Gooley and Boteler, all of the U S army There is a male attendant to each ward, beside* freneral officers The Sisters of Mercy, of whom here are alx or eight in tbe institution, administer the medicines and attend to the comfort of the patients snd the general police arrangementa Tbe tendrrneia of feeling, uarmth of heart, and deep sympathy with suffering, which cbaracterlies women under all circumstances. Is com bined In them, with the stern teachings of religion and morality; and many a poor, heart sore, bornea'ck, wounded or dying soldier has called down blessings on the bead of the Sister hovering over his couch, scotblng bis sufferings, and polling bim to a better world, where there is no m?re sickness or sorrow God bless the noble-hearted women, wherever and whoever they are, engaged la such works of mercy We were shown into every part of the establishment, yesterday, bv the courUsvof tbe gentlemen In charge, and came to the conclusion that in no private bouse in Wa?blngton could a patient breathe purer air or be more kindly cared for. Tbe srreigemenis for ventilation are perfect, the floors, bed-clotbing. mess tables, and everything >* saw scrupulously clean; and the order characteristic of military men, In court, camp, or hospital. reigned throughout, somewhat softened by fer Inlne taste Tb?re are bere cheerful, airy bath rooms, on each floor?for the use of patients supplied with warm or cold water. There are also water clcsets on each floor Tbe culinary srranrements?an important in hospitals snd else, where?are admirable, and tbe kitchen snd its appur'ensnces were, to usa a not uncommon phrase, "dreadful nice " t A werd or two before we cloee, in regard to the patients. Nearly one-half of those here sre wounded men, snd of these a large proportion?too large? are men wounded accidentally in tbe camp* in this vicinity. Many such cases we saw. One man bad Lis foot amputated at the ankle Joint, tbe bones of that useful member having been sbsttered by a bullet The heel bad united with tbe ?-cut" on which it waa turned, and the ' stump" had a healthy appearapce. of which the patient seemed quite proud. It was what surgeon* would probably term "a beautiful case " Of the wounded In the late battles, there are a great many vet in the hospitals, most cf them doing well Colonel (when wounded, now Brigadier General) *iocum is doing well, and it Ts hoped will soon be about again Hewai wourded in the thigh, it will be remembered Colonel Farnbam. of Ellsworth's Zouaves?gallant fel low?Is in a critical condition, and there is but little hope of his ultimate recovery Many otL< r otficers are here, but the most of them are doing well. * Of the sick, a Isrge proportion of tbe case? are typhoid fever Tb's seems to be a prevalent disease amora tbe sold ers. Cac?ed pr"bably by their babl's, and much aggravated by the depresalon of spirits csused bv home-alcknesi, the late reverse, Ac But few of the patients, however, manifest the stoildn'ss and apathy which characterize the moat aevere cases of this f*ver. Our visit wrs probably the means under Providence, of saviiig a patient's life. We had visited a ward on the third floor. In company with Dr. Boteler. who polnt-d out a man wounded in the Stone Bridge sffkir by a bullet, which entered his cheek and shattered the lower jaw The bullet could not be extracted The wounded man waa sitting in a drooping position on tbe side of bis bed, looking miserable enough to be sure; but there waa nothing at all alarming in bta appearance We turned to leave the door, and b?d proceeded but r few steps when an attendant called to Dr Boteler, and said a man was bleeding to dea'h Tbe Dr Lurried back, we followed and found the attendant supporting tbe wounded man we had J ist left a moment before. Tbe blood waa pouring In a continuous and full stream from his mouth, and had already nearly filled a basin In tbe hand of an attendant, which would hold more than s quart Tbe doctor sprang to tbe patient's side, and promptly placed his band on bis throat, compressing tbe carotid artery from whence the bemorbage proceeded, and it soon ceased. The poor fellow fainted In tbe doctor's arma from loss of blood, an omlnoua rattle sounded In his throat, and we tboogbtall waa over; but be rallied again. Drs White ard Gooly paid prompt attention to tbe ease, and when we left the patient was comparatively comfortable, and the hemorhaje had entirely ceaaed One minute's delsy and he must bave bted to death, and that minute would have been lost If Dr. Boteler had not thro igb courtesy accompanied us to tbe third floor, thus being on tbe spot Sucbare some of the "bor-ors of war," heretofore only familiar to most of us by deecriptlon, now become stern realities in o ir midst. Msav Avn Braxa (colored) keeps an establishmeut on south 6 street, between Ninth and Tenth, that the Seventh Warders think demands some attention at the hands of the police Her shanty has been known for some time as a resort for abandoned white women and auch of tbe t'other sex as sre not over fastidious ss to tbelr supply of ? tbe necessary evil " Lately and alncethe Influx of soldiers this nuisance has grown to he an intolerable one to the neighborhood On Sunday last, a respectable lady Tn passing this rookery wss accosted In tbe most tnsultiag terms by a white scoundrel who was lounging at the open door of the concern, and aimilar instances ais of dally occurrence Mary, who stands on ner muscle, as the "bo^-catchers" can testify, ssys she defies the police or anybody else to put a stop to ber operations. But perhaps she Is mistaken. From tbe frequency and protracted nature of the visits of members of tbe police force to Mary's quarters, it Is evident that they are patiently on -the lookout for evidence." and when sufficiently posted they will doubtless bring ber to terms If tbey sre not able to abtt? tLe nuisance, we dare say that Capt Goddard can delegate some officer* who will.

Patrick Crowley. Joseph W Harry, laaac Marshall, Samuel McKnigbt, and Butler Baker. Tbe Indictn rnt waa then read, and the witnesses railed The District Attorney, Mr. Carrlngton, then JiroceedM to deliver bla opening address to the ury, calling their attention to the number of counta In the Indictment, and reminding them that they could, in their dlacretlon, after hearing the law and evidence, acquit any or all of the parties, or convict any or allofthem ontheeharge of murder, or t bey might convict of manslaughter only. He appealed to the jury to agree upon some verdlcsnd reminded them of tbeir responsibility saying, " I hope the day will never dawn when an American jurv will be Influenced by personal or party feeling " He then read the lawa defining murder and manslaughter, and contended that where a homicide had been c mmltted, no matter how sudden, It must be considered aa malicious unless clear evidence u^nlttgatory circumstances is presented. He cc^ftidea there was no justification of this nomlcide It Is either murder or manslaughter Eloquently, snd at great length, he stated the facts he expected ts present in evidence, and made a powerful closing appeal to the jurv. Mr Bradley, for defense, spoke of the extraordinary address of the Diatrict Attorney, and of his Impassioned appeal to the prejudices and feelings of the Jury; and said be would endeavor to show tha' these men were neither murderers nor cowards, nor fiends, as stated by the Diatrict At- I torney He alluded to the extraordinary state of, affair* that prevailed at the time of the homicide, and thrilled th^ court by bla vivid picture of the state of the Capital, threatened by enemies without and traitors within, who were In the Navy Yard, Arsenal, and Government Dapartments. He was stating what he expected to prove for defense when our report closed Ami Movfmbstv?A Regimental Surgeon and a frisky " Matron."?A few days Since, with one of the arriving regiments there came a tall brunette (moderately good looking),who occupied the position of "matron" (whatever that may be) to the regiment, and who.Bnder the attentive care of the surgeon of the same, made application for board at a house not far from the Capitol On entering the house they evinced some surprise at seeing their major and another regimental officer there, and without examining the rooms they precipitately left, and took up their quarters a few doors distant, engaging adjoining rooms From , the style In which matters progressed, the host thought be smelt amice, and heasked our surgeon l if bis wife was unwell." " Ob: " ssid the doctor. ' she is not my wife, but, never having left home befors, she is very much frightened at what she sees here, and it is necessary that 1 should attend to her case very closely at present ." The proprietor of the house thought that if such waa the condition of the lady's nerves she had better have company; and accordingly, on the night after the matron's arrival, a young lady of the house was delegated to sleep In the same apartment with her; the latter, however, expressing In various ways her dissatisfaction at the arrangement The surgeon also seemed lit high dudgeon that his timid ir;end should be compelled to share i her room with a stranger, and marcned off to bis | own virtuous pillow In a high state of efiervea! cence The matron's nervous flutter seemed to have grown with the hours in such sort that she was afterwards discovered en dtskabtlle In the suryeon's room, supported by the manly Esculapian arm, in a manner tfatUrring to the ^allautry of the m*n, and soothing to the fears of the lady, no doubt, but a nositlon hardly befitting the dignity of his profession, and certainly not that of the matron of one thousand and forty-five men. So the host thought, and the delinquents were warmly advised to seak other quarters without delay, which they did The Whits Hons*?This title has been applied to the large building recently erected at ; the depot for tne accommodation of arriving troops, and has already become an "institution"' in that vicinity This building was constructed of the Inauguration ball-room material, and is , well adapted to its intended use.

In the Mt Vernon Cane Factory, lmi mediately adjoining, long rows of tables have been put up, and everything arranged so as to mbke it a complete dining-room, large enough to i seat a whole regiment. A guard of regulars protect the buildings, (and take care of those who get unruly,) the whole being under the supervision of Mr. Deceit Carpenter.

Mr Augustus \V bite (a well-known Union nian of Montgomery county, .Md )and other parties have been arrested and detained, and tbeir boats delayed?causing them some loss?only because the guards were not well posted as to what passes were really legitimate The careful inspection of boats for contraband articles at the Chain Bridge, and a little wholesome restraluton passengers traveling along that route are Imperatively demanded; but at the same t me guards of sufficient Intelligence to understand their business should be placed there, In order that no unnecessary hindrance be placed upon boat traffic Vioilahci.?The residents of the District and the counties of Maryland upon the Potomic find it requisite now to obtain passes to visit this city snd return to their farraa The l >yal men of these are not sorry to see such vigilance exercised, and think it should have been practised long ago.

To tki Editor of The Star:?Tbe correspondent who bu addressed me kindly and respectfully In your paper, has called upon me to express a public opinion upon the division of responsibility belonging to the two rartles in what the praver wb1<*h be refera to terms -the miserable atrlfe which now detracts our land," and impllea that the use of the words "great duel," In my sermon on Sunday, la allusion to it, seems to require tbls exprwwion of me. To enter on such a themev would exactly transgress the principle of my public teaching, and defeat any good which I may possibly have done. In keeping such matters In abeyance, as belonging entirely to those who have the couduct or the war. In answer to tbe question, "Did he mean that*" I answer frankly that 1 bad no such meaning, and Imagine that no sncti meaning was suggested to any number of those who heard me. Mjurnlng over the troubles of my beloved land, as one whose lif#hasbeen almost equally divided between the two sections, and who is grateful for friendships snd affections now sadly distracted between them; maintaining under peculiar difficulties entire loyalty of mind and ?ct to the Constitution and Government, of which I ain beyond all quratlon the subject and citlten, 1 would express freely my grief that such inference* "em to be so readily adopted Ky occasional hearer*. St. Jame* has taught us that all Wara and fightings come from our "lusts " In reprehending certain evil passions and faults common to all sections, which have manifested such unhappy results just now, my sole purpose and obligation In tbe discourse referred to was to condemn them, not to turn aside to the diacosslon of a question which h?s entirely taken me by surprise "Is this w.ira duel ?" For such a discussion I have no taste, and can aee no good to result from It. This Is now the third time that I have been brought before the public, as either not speaking what others wished me to speak, or sa "obviously Inferring" what only the Imagination of the particular writer fancied. If In such unhappy times ras these, the silence upon all political phases of vents?to which 1 was urged not only by my own judgment, but by the advice of the officer! of the army and navy, as high in public reputation for loyalty aa they are In rank?lays me open to suspicion of covert thrusts at the "powers that be," let me now say, once for all, that 1 hold my?elf conscientiously bound to render hearty and entire obedience to those authorities and to ao all In my power to set a good example of unobtrusive loyalty, "not only for wrath, but for conscience sake.' that, avoiding party strife, I may set forward godliness and peace among all men It gives me pleasure to know that thus far It baa not been anything that I have said, but only what I might have meant, which has been the subject of comment To tbe officers and soldiers referred to by my bearer, I can only answer In the words of the did Earl of Douglas: "I have three sons in yonder field, And if they meet thee und?r shield, Upen them bravely?do thy worst. And foul fall him who blenches first " n ? , C H.Hall De Menou Buildings, August 12,1861.
