General HALLECK:

I have placed General W. S. Smith in charge of the work on the railroad to Decatur. He is a graduate of the Academy; has had somewhat extensive experience in that branch of civil engineering, and withal is an officer of remarkable industry and energy. I will answer for the rapid prosecution of the work under his charge.
