Gen. G. T. Beauregard.

Gen. G. T. Beauregard has assumed command of the Military Department of South Carolina and Georgia. On the 21st he visited Savannah and under a pouring rain made a thorough inspection of the defences of that city. In his order assuming command, Brigadier-General Thos. Jordan is announced Adjutant and Inspector General and Chief of his Staff. In the order, Gen. B. says:

‘ In entering upon my duties, which may involve, at an early day, the defence of two of the most important cities in the Confederate States, against the most formidable efforts of our powerful enemy, I shall rely on the ardent patriotism, the intelligent and unconquerable spirit of the officers and men under my command, to sustain me successfully. But to maintain our posts with credit to our country and to our own honor, and avoid irremediable disaster, it is essential that all shall yield implicit obedience to any orders emanating from superior authority.
