RICHMOND, VA., November 30, 1861.

Governor PICKENS,

Columbia, S. C.:

Your letter by Colonel Chesnut received. I have no power to appoint a brigadier until a brigade has been raised and received into service. Your recommendation is regarded with the respect given to everything you propose in relation to the defense of South Carolina. It is very desirable that the troops should be for as long terms as you can get them. Two brigades from the regular service have been ordered to join General Lee. Three light batteries will go forward without delay.

JEFF'N DAVIS.

RICHMOND, November 30, 1861.

Governor MILTON,

Tallahassee:

I learn that vessels at Apalchicola are detained from going to sea with cargo by some unknown military authority. It is not lawful nor is it the policy of the Government to prevent the departure of vessels with cargo, unless there is imminent risk of their capture by a blockading vessel of the enemy.

J. P. BENJAMIN,

Secretary of War.

[6.]
