For what regiment are the 700 horses you speak of intended? If for the Second [West] Virginia, that regiment may be left at Grafton, or Webster, until the equipments arrive, and in the meantime guard horses and stores.

Major General H. W. Halleck,

General-in-Chief:

The presence of two or three gunboats, or even one, here at Baltimore, would have a most wholesome, effect, internally and externally. Can you get for us immediately something of the kind?

Major-General MILROY, Bedford, Pa.:

If you cannot be of immediate use to General Couch with that portion of your division which you have found at Bedford, get them in order, and return by Harrisburg immediately here, that you may take them to rejoin the forces at Harper's Ferry. General Tyler reports 1, 559 of your men with him. Reorganization must go on at once.

General-in Chief, Washington, D. C.:

By telegraph this moment from Harrisburg, I learn that Major-General Couch is directing General Milroy, and wishes me to give him no order without its passing through his headquarters.
