Doc. 77.-General Beauregard's order on assuming command in the West.
Commenting on this, the Appeal says:
The exact limits of his department, which is distinct, it appears, from Gen. Sidney Johnston, is not known to us. Gens. Polk and Bragg will be connected with him in command of the army — the former making his headquarters at Humboldt, and the latter probably at Memphis. As affairs now progress, we may well expect that Gen. Beauragard will very soon perfect the organization and discipline of his army, and increase its numbers to such an extent, that it will compare favorably in efficiency with the army of the Potomac.
