SMYRNA CAMP-GROUND, November 5, 1864.

Major-General SHERMAN:

My command is at this place:

O. O. HOWARD,

Major-General.

HDQRS. MILITARY DIVISION OF THE MISSISSIPPI,

In the Field, Kingston, Ga., November 5, 1864.

Major-General HOWARD,

Smyrna Camp, Ga.:

Your dispatch reporting position received. You can send your wagons into Atlanta, and have them loaded and parked. General Easton reports plenty of grain there and Colonel Beckwith has stores plenty also. Collect all your men to get paid and do everything necessary to make a clear start about the 10th.

W. T. SHERMAN,

Major-General.

HDQRS. MILITARY DIVISION OF THE MISSISSIPPI,

In the Field, Kingston, Ga., November 5, 1864.

Major-General HOWARD,

Marietta, Ga.:

Dispatch received. The general desires you to garrison Marietta as circumstances call for, and break up the present garrison, sending regiments composing it to their respective corps.

L. M. DAYTON,

Aide-de-Camp.

MOUTH OF WHITE RIVER, November 5, 1864.

Major General O. O. HOWARD:

I have ordered the detachments of the SIXTEENTH and Seventeenth Corps to be sent from Missouri to Memphis by the quickest route. The cavalry DIVISION is also ordered. The infantry will probably come to Cairo. The cavalry DIVISION is far advanced in the pursuit of Price by the way of Fort Smith and White River. I have directed General Dana to remain at Vicksburg until the arrival of General M. L. Smith or General Veatch. The crossing of the MISSISSIPPI by the rebels under the renewed order of Jeff. Davis will probably be attempted between this place and Vicksburg.

E. R. S. CANBY,

Major-General.
