For the Tennessee

ST. LOUIS, April 10.

Two steamers fitted as floating hospitals left here yesterday for Tennessee river.  Large contributions of all kinds and supplies are being made to-day to furnish two more which will leave this evening.  The Western Sanitary Commission are moving earnestly and energetically with the matter, and an effort will be made for speedy relief of our wounded soldiers at Pittsburg landing.  Col. Kelton, 1st adjutant, and Gen. Ketchum are in charge here while Gen. Halleck is in the field.

EVANSVILLE, Ind., April 10.

The steamer Charley Bowen left here at 11 a.m. for Pittsburg landing with a delegation of surgeons and nurses and a full supply of hospital stores from Indianapolis and Warwick county, Ind.  They will take on board another delegation of surgeons and supplies from Posey county, Ind., at Mt. Vernon.
