By command of General Beauregard. Thomas Jordan, A. A. Genl. Headquarters army of the Potomac, Manassas, July 23d, 1861. Special Orders, No. 149. I. Brigadier-General Bonham will advance his command forthwith, and occupy Vienna Station. His command will consist of the troops of the 1st brigade of this army, Kemper's and Shields's batteries, all cavalry at present attached, and as many companies of Colonel Radford's regiment of cavalry as are not assigned to other brigades. II. The utmost degree of military precaution must be exercised in the execution of these orders, especially in approaching within several miles of Vienna Station; and no unnecessary exposure of our men to fire from intrenchments must occur. The ground in advance, therefore, must be carefully reconnoitred; but at the same time celerity of movement is of great importance. By command of General Beauregard. Thomas Jordan, A. A. Genl.

I enter into no particulars about our affairs here, not only because Dr. Chopping will be able to tell you all you may desire to know, but because I am sure you have enough to occupy your attention, without troubling you about home matters. With the sincere hope and confident expectation that you will win additional honors in your new field of exertion. I remain, yours very truly, Thomas O. Moore, Governor. To General G. T.

iver, by 10th or 12th April, twenty thousand men or more, and about seventy pieces of artillery. It was my intention to attack the forces near New Madrid and Point Pleasant from the north by Greenville. What do you now advise? There is an army of about twenty thousand. Enemy north of this in Arkansas, but they cannot subsist t my best judgment in all matters. Peremptory orders to save a battery from overflow might require all my force for weeks. The enemy is erecting a battery at Point Pleasant. A gunboat went down to shell them out. I have not heard the result. I have not yet placed the salient in advance of the works at New Madrid; the position iheavy demonstration this afternoon, on New Madrid, they were driven back by Captain Bankhead's guns and the gunboats. The enemy have established a battery at Point Pleasant, of small rifled guns. The river would be closed if New Madrid was abandoned.

nt-Colonel Strange, of Cocke's brigade, pursued the now panic-stricken, fugitive enemy. Stuart, with his cavalry, and Beckham, had also taken up the pursuit along the road by which the enemy had come upon the field that morning, but, soon cumbered by prisoners who thronged his way, the former was unable to attack the mass of the fast-fleeing, frantic Federalists. Withers's, R. T. Preston's, Cash's, and Kershaw's regiments, Hampton's Legion, and Kemper's battery, also pursued along the Warrenton road by the stone bridge; the enemy having opportunely opened a way for them through the heavy abattis which my troops had made on the west side of the bridge several days before. But this pursuit was soon recalled in consequence of a false report which unfortunately reached us, that the enemy's reserves, known to be fresh and of considerable strength, were threatening the position of Union Mills Ford. Colonel Radford, with six companies Virginia cavalry, was also ordered by General Jo

d to be palisaded merely, so that our gunboats might fire into them from the river if they were taken by the enemy. The defences must consist of three works with strong profiles, for about five hundred men each—two on the river, and one a little in advance of the others. The cremaillere lines, on the right and rear of Island No.10, must be provided with small redans for a few siege-guns, and the navigation of Black Lagoon obstructed so as to prevent the enemy's barges from getting into Reelfoot Lake, the shores of which, between the two cremaillere lines, were to be well guarded, and, if need be, properly defended. The island opposite Tiptonville was to be examined, to determine if it could be advantageously fortified. I would advise the garrison at Fort Pillow (excepting a strong guard) to be sent, for the present, to New Madrid or Island No.10. All the heavy ordnance, not required at these two points, should be sent, when removed, from Columbus to Fort Pillow, or to any other

bandonment, only one of those roads could then be relied upon for that object. If the enemy took possession of this strategic point, he would at once open his communications, by railroad, with Columbus and Paducah, in his rear, and Huntsville, on his left flank, and thus relieve himself of the awkward position in which he is about to find himself by the rapid fall of the Tennessee River. It is evident, also, that the true line of retreat of the forces at this point is along the Mobile and Ohio road towards Meridian, and thence towards Montgomery, so as to be able, as a last resort, to unite with the armies of the East. This line not only covers the railroad and river lines of communication to Selma and Montgomery, but also, from a position along the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, the enemy would expose his railroad lines of communication, already referred to, if he should attempt to move on to Memphis. But if he should march in force on the latter place, to change his lines of communi

defence, they could not prevent the passage of one or more steamers during a dark or stormy night, without the assistance of a properly constructed raft or strong wire rope across the river between the two forts, so as to arrest the course of said steamers, even only for half an hour, under the severe cross-fire of said forts. The first thing to be done, then, is to commence the construction of (or prepare at least the materials for) said obstacles; then the guns of the land fronts of Fort Jackson ought to be mounted at once on the river fronts; the guns, chassis, and carriages at Baton Rouge, Forts Pike, Wood, Battery Bienvenu, etc., where they are not required at present, ought to be sent at once to these two forts on the river, to be put in position as advantageously as possible on their river fronts—not overlooking, however, the flank guns of the other fronts; all said chassis and carriages ought to be tried forthwith by double charges of powder and shot; ample supplies of ammu
