Haileck's dispatches, is fully sustained by this straight-forward statement: Headq'rs Western Department, June 17th, 1862. Gentlemen: My attention has just been called to the following dispatch (published in your issue of yesterday) of Major-General Halleck, commanding enemy's forces, which, coming from such a source, is most remarkable in one respect — that it contains as many misrepresentations as lines: Washington, June 4. 1862.--The following dispatch was received this afternoon at the War Department: Halleck's Headquarters, June 4, 1862.
