PULASKI, November 13, 1864 -6. 30 p. m.

Brigadier General W. D. WHIPPLE:

Dispatch from Major Tompkins, at Lawrenceburg, says he went within eight miles of Waynesborough, struck the rebel scouts, but learning that a rebel brigade of cavalry was in that place he fell back to Lawrenceburg. There is no forage between the latter place and Waynesborough. Citizens report rebels hauling corn from WEST of Wsynesborough to Florence. Rebels also hunting tanneries and leather.
