It does not require that officers appointed under this act shall serve with specified batteries. In this connection we may add, that the War Department has requested from Gen. Johnson a statement of the relative merit and service of the artillery officers in the Army of the Potomac. Our readers are already aware that Major Walton is chief of artillery of the first corps, and Col. Pendleton of the second.

Jordan, Assistant Adjutant-General; Capt. Cummings, Chief of Ordnance and signal officer; Capt. Harris, and other gentlemen attached to Gen. Beauregard's staff, took their departure yesterday for Columbus. At last accounts, Gen. Beauregard was at Bowling Green, in consultation with Gen. A. Sidney Johnson.
