    So Ca Hospital Bureau at Richmond This establishment, which was removed from Charlottesville in April last, on account of the withdrawal of our army from the line of the Potomac, has been opened here and we are now ready to supply the wants of all the sick of the So Carolina regiments who may be in Hospital in Richmond. It will give pleasure to all of our Contributors to know that with one exception all the boxes forwarded through Dr Laborde have arrived! We opened fifty four cases last week! I would again call the attention of our friends to the importance of employing this mode of transportation. Of the boxes sent to us by the ordinary freight lines, none have reached us for three months past! The express company is still failing in four or five cases. Many stores sent on by private opportunity are necessarily left in the road from an inability to bring them on the passenger train! We are making arrangements to have a special messenger with a loaded car of supplies to bring on our stores once a month, and I suggest that all boxes be sent therefore to "Dr Laborde in Columbia for R W Barnwell by the 15th of each month - Robt W Barnwell Jr[End Page 1] Charleston Courier, Mercury, Guardian and Carolinian[End Page 2]
