Assistant Adjutant-General.

CINCINNATI, April 25, 1863.

General WILLCOX, Lexington:

Fourteen hundred cavalry from Glasgow are moving Tompkinsville, which I will, if possible, move to Burkesville, and I will also move 1,200 or 1,500 cavalry, with some artillery, to either Burkesville or Jamestown, with instructions to cross Monday morning. If this force has not already moved too far, I will have it cross at Jamestown.

A. E. BURNSIDE,

Major-General.

CINCINNATI, April 25, 1863.

General BOYLE, Louisville:

Tell Graham to look out for a move by Morgan in the direction of Glasgow, and to threaten Burkesville and Celina from Tompkinsville. Inform both Jacob and Graham that Carter will cross the Cumberland at Waitsborough or Mill Springs early Monday morning, with infantry supported at the crossings. If they can make diversions in his favor it will be well. If Jacob can cross at Creelsborough or Jamestown, and move carefully in the direction of Albany, it will help Carter very much. Where is Jacob now? Send Colonel Morrison's brigade, now at Lebanon to the crossing of Green River, between Campbellsville and Columbia with a strong infantry and artillery guard at Columbia. We must occupy the enemy, and keep them from flanking Rosecrans. Tell garrisons on the railroad to keep sharp lookout. Please answer at once.

To my great surprise (and I may say regret), he inclosed me a copy of an order grant
