ABINGDON, June 11, 1863.

Major General SAMUEL JONES:

General Buckner telegraphs enemy making heavy demonstrations on Big Creek Gap. One of my regiments (Colonel [H.] Hawkins'), at Estillville, has been ordered to re-enforce Cumberland Gap.

W. PRESTON.

*Bate's brigade and Douglas' and Humphreys' batteries transferred to Hardee's corps.

+Clayton's and Churchill's brigades, the Fifteenth Tennessee Infantry and McTyer's battery assigned, and Breckinridge's division, with three batteries (effective total 5,073, and aggregate present and absent 9,192), transferred to Mississippi.

++No correct report received from General Forrest since his expedition to Georgia, and the amount of his force at last report was but an estimate, and too small by 1,940. Cosby's and Whitfield's brigades (effective total 3,172, and aggregate present and absent 5,872) transferred to Mississippi.
