Good for Milwaukie

Milwaukee, April 9. – The Chamber of Commerce on the Governor’s recommendation held a meeting to-day for the relief of the wounded at Pittsburg Landing. After subscribing liberally the doors were thrown open for the reception of hospital stores. To-night the room is well field and an agent of the governor’s accompanied by surgeons will leave to-morrow to render all the aid possible for the comfort of the wounded.
