One 9-inch Dahlgren gun, one 7-inch Brooke gun, and two 6.4-inch Brooke guns have been put at our disposal by the admiral.

Two 1-inch columbiads, two 8-inch colubiads, and three 18-pounder Blakely guns are reported by the Ordnance department as being on their way to this place.

Respectfully submitted.

M. T. POLK,

Lieutenant-Colonel and Chief of Artillery.

MERIDIAN, MISS.,

DALTON, January 12, 1864.

His Excellency JOSEPH E. BROWN,

Milledgeville:

The railroad from Atlanta does not supply our wants. Our officers complain of great negligence in the management of the trains and great delay from want of fuel. I beg Your Excellency to consider that the army here depends for subsistence on this Georgia railroad. If it does not supply us we cannot defend this portion of the State.
