A NEW AND EXCELLENT HOSPITAL. - We are glad to see that the United States Hotel is to be fitted up for immediate use as a hospital. No building in the city is so perfectly adapted to this purpose. Captain Warner, of the Quartermaster’s Department, was engaged yesterday in removing the tenants, bag and baggage, to make room for the scrubbers and whitewashers to operate.
