CINCINNATI, OHIO, September 13, 1862-7 p. m.

Major General H. W. HALLECK, General-in-Chief:

Have not been able to find General Crook. It is said he is with General Cox. I am much in want of good brigadiers. Organization is slow without them as officers and men are raw. General Love is now here rendering efficient service. He is good man and I can confidently recommend him. R. S. Granger, now at Louisville, and just exchanged, has the reputation of being a good soldier. His name should be considered for promotion. General Gordon Granger has arrived with four regiments of infantry and one battery.

Honorable E. M. STANTON,

Secretary of War:

The Minute-men, or Squirrel Hunters, responded gloriously to the call for defense of Cincinnati. Thousands reached the city and thousands more were en route for it. The enemy having all have been ordered back. This uprising of the people is the cause of the retreat. You should acknowledge publicly their gallant conduct.

Please order Quartermaster Burr to pay all transportation bills upon my approval.


Governor of Ohio.
