General Shackelford reports, per courier, as follows:

EAST FORK, LITTLE BARREN RIVER,

Fifteen miles from Columbia, July 4-1.30 p. m.

Morgan's forces commanded passing thought Columbia late last evening. Camped near Columbia, on Lebanon pike. Left this morning in direction of Lebanon. I shall go to Columbia this evening, and, unless otherwise order, continue to pursue the enemy. A portion of Carter's force, 200 in number, engaged Morgan's advance yesterday evening. Major [Captain] Carter, of Wolford's regiment, was killed, &c.

J. M. SHACKELFORD,

Brigadier-General.

Is it not possible for you to order the recall of the cavalry force from Stanford from going in the direction of Columbia, and order it to Lebanon? I still intend to start, soon as animals are able to, for Greensburg. General Habson started for Greensburg this afternoon from Edmonton.

Brigadier-General BOYLE,

Commanding Louisville, Ky.:

GENERAL: Just back from Marrowbone. Morgan tried to force Hobson's position day before yesterday, but was repulsed. My troops were in Burkesville before they left. Morgan took up [road] now for Columbia. I was not charged with its protection. I held Tompkinsville and Marrowbone, which protected region south and west of Columbia. Shackelford is twelve hours behind Morgan, with 1,800 men. Hobson will be at Greensburg to-night with his infantry and Ninth Kentucky Cavalry. I will be there in pursuit of Morgan to-morrow with 1,200 cavalry. Two thousand cavalry from Stanford were sent to Columbia. I am endeavoring to have them stopped and directed up Lebanon. Manson's infantry goes to-morrow to Munfordville. I shall follow up Morgan, besides keeping in readiness to intercept him if he comes to rest [this] side of railroad.
