etached the Fourth corps, Major-General Stanley, and ordered him to proceed to Chattanooga and report to Major-General Thomas at Nashville. Subsequently, on the thirtieth of October, I also detached the Twenty-third corps, Major-General Schofield, with the same destination; and delegated to Major-General Thomas full power over all the troops subject to my command, except the four corps with which I designed to move into Georgia. This gave him the two divisions under A. J. Smith, then in Missouri, but en route for Tennessee, the two corps named, and all the garrisons in Tennessee, as also all the cavalry of my military division, except one division under Brigadier-General Kilpatrick, which was ordered to rendezvous at Marietta. Brevet Major-General Wilson had arrived from the army of the Potomac, to assume command of the cavalry of my army, and I dispatched him back to Nashville with all dismounted detachments, and orders as rapidly as possible to collect the cavalry serving in K

A few men were left as a guard on the transport, and some were used in guarding prisoners; so that the whole number of men I had engaged was only one hundred and eighty.

To the General Commanding the Army of the United States, Washington: General: On the twenty-ninth of June last, I was instructed by the Secretary of War to in quire of Major-General McClellan as to the truth of alleged murders committed on our citizens by officers of the United States army. The cases of Wm. B. Mumford, reported to have been murdered at New-Orleans, by order of Major-General B. F. Butler, and Colonel John Owen, reported to have been murdered in Missouri, by order of Major-General Pope, were those referred to. I had the honor to be informed by Major-General McClellan that he had referred these inquiries to his Government for a reply. No answer has as yet been received. The President of the confederate States has since been credibly informed that numerous other officers of the army of the United States, within the Confederacy, have been guilty of felonies and capital offences which are punishable by all laws, human and divine.

The occupation of the Rio Grande, Galveston, and Mobile would have led to the capture or destruction of all the enemy'veport, Jefferson, and Marshall, the last a vital point. Accordingly, Price's old division, now divided into Parsons's (Missouri) and Churchill's (Arkansas) division, was ordered to Shreveport, where it arrived on the twenty-fourth. At this time Bagnal defeat. Regaining the Arkansas Valley, and breaking up the Yankee state government, as well as having the route to Missouri open, were considerations of great importance. For these reasons General Smith determined to move against Steele; and aht to ten thousand men, while with Steele back upon the Mississippi, or his force destroyed, our cavalry might now be in Missouri. Unfortunately, in this department, the immense tracts of deserted country, and the want of transportation sufficient t
