Judge Linderman, one of the relief committee, returned home on Wednesday evening from Cincinnati, where he left all our wounded doing well.  The Judge is by no means favorably impressed with the hospital arrangements at Mound City, whither our wounded first went; little care seems to be taken towards making the patients comfortable, and their sufferings are often aggravated by the neglect of the surgeons to attend to their wounds.  At Cincinnati, the management is excellent, and the best of care is taken of the sick.  Mr. L. G. Center is unremitting in his attentions to the wounded, and is very popular with them; his appearance being always greeted with evident signs of pleasure.
