a Major-General Martin's division has recently returned from East Tennessee. No report has yet been received from the division. The effective total as mounted men of the cavalry with the army is 4,036, less the regiment of Moreland, left by Roddey in North Alabama, and Grigsby's brigade, recruiting near Oxford, Ala.

BRISTOL, TENN.,

March 31, 1864.

General R. E. LEE,

Orange Court-House:

The Ninth Army Corps is said to have left Knoxville, and gone via Cumberland Gap east. It is so reduced in numbers that its movements are scarcely worth reporting. I think it short 3,000.

J. LONGSTREET,

Lieutenant-General.
