Chattanooga, October 10, 1863-9 p.m.

Major-General BURNSIDE,

Knoxville, Tenn.:

Citizens report a large rebel force concentrating at Kincannon's Ferry on the Hiwassee. If it be true they will try to cut you from all communication with us, a danger to be guarded against. You must see to it promptly, or we shall be struck a serious blow before we are prepared for it. I rely on you to secure us against any attempt of the enemy to cross in force between us.

W. S. ROSECRANS,

Major-General.

Chattanooga, October 10, 1863.

Brigadier-General BOYLE,

Louisville:

We have nothing to confirm your report. Some small bands may be there. Our information is to the effect that Forrest is in our front with a brigade of cavalry. Wheeler has undoubtedly retreated southward beyond Fayetteville. Hamilton and Hawkins have had bands of men in Cumberland Valley during the whole of the recent campaign. Wheeler has nearly all the rebel cavalry. Our cavalry are beating them.

J. A. GARFIELD,

Brigadier-General and Chief of Staff.
