Halleck, Major-General, Commanding. March 18, 1862. General Halleck, Saint Louis: My advanced division is at Columbia. The heavy rains and the destruction of bridges by the enemy will of course retard our progress somewhat. I am carrying the telegraph along. I am told the communication with Island No.10 is kept up across the bend of the river only 3 miles. We are without money, and both our credit and efficiency are suffering in consequence. D. C.

Expect the bridge at Columbia to be ready or nearly so by the time I get there, and shall then move forward rapidly. D. C. Buell, Brigadier-General. Columbia, March 29, 1862. Hon. E. M. Stanton: If I may take the liberty, I beg that nominations of brigadier-generals from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Kentucky may be deferred until 1 can present by mail the names of officers of this army who have proved themselves worthy of promotion. D. C. Buell. Washington, March 30, 1862. Major-General Buell: Your telegram received and communicated to the Military Committee. I agree entirely with you and am glad you have made the point.

Buell, Care General Dumont: We captured to-day the inclosed dispatch in cipher from General Beauregard. The-cipher has proved as little effectual in holding back the Third Division of your army as the destruction of bridges. We have deciphered the cipher and we read as follows: Corinth, April 9. General S. Cooper, Richmond, Va.: All present probabilities are that whenever the enemy moves on this position he will do so with an overwhelming force of not less than 85,000 men. We can now muster only about 35,000 effectives. Van Dorn may possibly join us in a few days with about 15,000 more. Can we not be re-enforced from Pemberton's army? If defeated here we lose the Mississippi Valley and probably our cause; whereas we could even afford to lose for a while Charleston and Savannah for the purpose of defeating

I sent a courier at daylight this morning to meet the train, and in case the water was too deep to ford to have the train move to Athens, to which point I sent a locomotive with cars this morning. On the cars I sent a small detachment of engineers to explore and put in order the road leading from a point near Elk River to the turnpike at Elkton, with orders to follow the turnpike to Columbia, hoping to make this my line for supplies. I have a deputation of citizens from Athens who express strong attachment to the Government, and will raise the old flag the moment our troops enter the town. They offer every assistance in rebuilding the bridges from Elk River to Columbia, a matter of great moment, if we are to occupy Northern Alabama. I have seized and hold the railroad from Decatur to Tuscumbia in the hope of opening communic

In response to that order I selected three of the strongest and swiftest stern-wheel coal tow-boats at Pittsburgh, of which the average dimensions are about 170 feet length, 30 feet beam, and over 5 feet hold. At Cincinnati I selected two side-wheel boats, of which the l

Major-General Halleck: The line which I am occupying is about 24 miles long, and leaves my old position where two of Thomas' divisions are quite retired and protected. It is desirable, I think, to have my whole force on that line, and if you approve I will move Crittenden over with the rest. He is now in rear of Thomas' troops. D. C. Buell. General orders, no. 26.

You will confer with the Military Board of Kentucky in reference to the condition of affairs and will take promptly and decidedly, though judiciously, such steps as the Government interests and the welfare of the Union seem to demand. Major Bracht, Eighteenth Kentucky Volunteers, now at Lexington, is suggested as a suitable person for provost-marshal of Lexington. Mr. Temple, president of Military Board, is at Frankfort. Your duties will relate mainly to preserving good order in Kentucky, and the general desires you to act firmly, but discreetly and dispassionately. The troops along the road have been posted to secure these lines, and in using them for your purpose, you must bear this fact in mind, and remove them only temporarily or to make other suitable disposition to secure the routes.
