Lieutenant-Colonel GODDARD,

Assistant Adjutant-General Department Headquarters:

COLONEL: In compliance with orders from department headquarters, I have to-day established headquarters Second Division, Reserve Corps, at this point. The force here are the Thirty-fourth Illinois Infantry, One hundred and eighth Ohio Infantry, five companies Tenth Ohio Cavalry, and two sections of Edgarton's artillery, the other section being at Anderson's Cross-Roads; and I respectfully request permission to order it to his point. Colonel Smith with Sixteenth Illinois Infantry and Beebe's battery moved from Bridgeport to Anderson's Cross-Roads yesterday. The Eightieth Illinois Infantry is being relieved by troops from General Hooker's command. They have been ordered to move to this point. Details have been made to build the bridge across Sequatchie River, and repair the road as directed in your communication of yesterday. You have no doubt been advised by General Hooker that railroad communications have been re-established with Nashville, the first train arriving at Stevenson yesterday. Generals McCook and Crittenden passed here to-day at 12 m. Wagon trains pass without interruption.

Very respectfully,

JAMES D. MORGAN,

Brigadier-General, Commanding.
