MOSCOW, February 27, 1862.

Major-General POLK:

My scouts just in from Baltimore, and report 500 Federal cavalry at sunset this evening advancing from Baltimore towards Clinton. I have about 150 men here for duty after guarding bridges. If you will send a full force to meet at Clinton soon, on to-morrow morning I can capture them. Please sent me all the cavalry you can spare. Please answer.

JACKSON, TENN., February 28, 1862.

General S. COOPER,

Adjutant and Inspector General, Richmond, Va.:

I am in despair about my health-nervous affection of throat. Bragg ought to be sent here at once. I will, when well enough, serve under him rather than not have him here. Re-enforcements are arriving.
