Honorable EDWIN M. STANTON:
There are at Nashville about 1,500 prisoners of war released on parole by General Beauregard. They are without officers, in no discipline and greatly demoralized. They will be of very little service and I respectfully recommend that they be mustered out of service.

WAR DEPARTMENT, Washington, June 13, 1862.
Your telegram received. I will send an officer immediately to Nashville to pay off the discharged prisoners and muster them out of service.
