General Bragg at Corinth. Have asked him to answer your question about cars. Very large supply there. Enemy threw six hundred shells at Island No.10, without damage to any one, or anything, yesterday.

Jackson, Tenn., March 18th, 1862.
To General L. Polk:
What number of your troops remain at Humboldt? Troops must be sent as fast as practicable, with means of transportation, to Corinth.

One hundred and sixty cars with locomotives will be sent you from Mississippi Central Railroad; more will be quickly sent from other roads.

The General wishes an armed reconnoissance made, of say (3) three regiments infantry, some cavalry and artillery, to feel the enemy. Must be cautiously made with advance guards, and all due military precautions.
