No. 2.-report of Brig. Gen. James R. Chalmers, C. S. Army.

Headquarters advance, April 3, 1862.
Major: Colonel Clanton has just reported verbally to me that the enemy's pickets attacked his advance pickets about daylight this morning, and he fears that 2 of his men were captured, though he was not able to state accurately the facts. As soon as I am accurately informed I will report to you.

Your order to prepare for movement has been received and given to the troops.

Our commissary stores have not arrived, but are expected hourly. We have on hand one day's rations ready cooked.

I am, major, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

James R. Chalmers, Brigadier-General. Maj. George G. Garner, Assistant Adjutant-General.
