I would be glad to learn, at your earliest convenience, the most exact information you have as to the position and movements of Jackson, as well as the sources from which your information is derived, that I may the better compare it with what I have. G. B. McCLELLAN, Major General. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War. Washington, June 25, 2.35. Major General McClellan: We have no definite information as to the numbers or position of Jackson's force.

Moreover, Secretary Stanton's report shows that there were in the Department of Washington Secretary Stanton's report shows that there were in the Department of Washington and the Middle Department, 47,751 available men for duty, the chief part of which, he says, was called to the front, after the campaign began, in order to repair the losses of the Army of the Potomac; and Grant says that, at Spottsylvania Court-House, the 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th (of May) were consumed in manoeuvring a

Stanton says in his report: Here (at Washington) they (we) were met by troops from the Army of the Potomac, consisting of the 6th corps under General Wright, a part of the 8th corps under General Gilmore and a part of the 19th corps, just arrived from d, there were the detachments from the invalid corps, called, I believe, the Veteran reserves (of which I was informed there were 5,000), the heavy artillery regiments, the hundred days men, and, I suppose, the part of the 8th corps mentioned by Stanton.
