WASHINGTON, June 2, 1862.

Major-General HALLECK, Corinth:

Your brilliant and successful achievement gives great joy over the whole land. Every one is anxious to hear the latest news, and I hope you will telegraph frequently. The President would be glad to have the news every hour. You can manage your railroad transportation better than it can be done from here. If you will detail an officer from the quartermaster's department, supplies will be furnished upon his requisition. I find this mode better than any railroad agencies. General McClellan was attacked yesterday; had a hard battle, but drove the enemy back. He is not yet in Richmond, but we hope he soon will be.
