HEADQUARTERS,

Huntsville, June 29, 1862.

J. B. TEMPLE,

Esq., Frankfort, Ky.:

I have received your dispatch in regard to General Boyle.

Some time ago I ventured to express the hope that the civil authorities of Kentucky would desire some plan by which any attempt to run disunion candidates at your August election would be prevented.

If that subject has received the attention of the civil authorities I will be obliged to you if you will inform me whether General Boyle is co-operating with them in it, and in what manner the military can be useful in furthering an object so desirable.

D. C. BUELL.

Captain OLIVER D. GREENE,

Nashville:

Following special order published here to-day:

Colonel L. D. Campbell and his regiment (the Sixty-ninth Ohio) will at once relieve Colonel Stanley Matthews and his regiment (Fifty-first Ohio) as provost-marshal and provost guard at Nashville. Colonel Matthews will immediately prepare his regiment for the field.

Make this known to the parties and let them act on it. How do Colonel Stanley Matthews (Fifty-first Ohio) and Colonel Stanley (Eighteenth Ohio) rank?
