TABLEAUX VIVANTS---UNION AID SOCIETY.
The ladies of the Union Aid Society, who have so nobly enrolled and enlisted themselves in the behalf of our wounded, sick and distressed soldiers, and who, by the voluntary contributions of a generous public, have thus far been enabled to administer to the wants, assuage the distress and alleviate the sufferings of the brave volunteers, who in the defence of their country have fallen a prey to the disease and wounds incident to war, now far from the loved ones at home, linger in our hospitals, do not lack the attention of the kind women of St. Louis, and particularly those comprising the Union Aid Society, who new appeal to the St. Louis public, who have yet never failed in generous acts for the necessary means to replenish their depleted treasury and enable them to pursue their good work, and who themselves now volunteer to give an equivalent in the proposed “Tableaux Vivants,” of which notice appears in another column, and which should be responded to in a liberal and magnificent spirit.
