To Genl. G. T. Beauregard:
The following officers have been nominated for your command, viz., J. P. McCown, as major-general, and J. M. Hawes, J. E. Slaughter, and L. M. Walker, as brigadiers—Hawes for cavalry. Ransom appointed brigadier-general, and sent to North Carolina, where his presence at this time is of the first importance. S. Jones is also nominated as major-general, but he cannot be spared from Mobile.
