Andrews. Have the whole command in light marching order, with five days' cooked rations, and take one wagon with ammunition. Be careful to take a number of extra artillery horses, the road being heavy. Move out the cavalry about 3 o'clock to-morrow afternoon on the Clinton road, and let them clear and picket the road for at least eight miles from Port Hudson. Issue positive orders for them to retain every person that may fall into their hands, and let no one pass them. You will follow with infantry and artillery at 5 p. m. The command will be expected to march twenty miles by daylight the next morning. Permit nothing to be carried that will be an incumbrance. I will try and reach Port Hudson in time to go out with you at 5 o'clock. Should I not be there leave twenty-five cavalry for me and move on with the command. I will overtake you.

F. J. HERRON,

Major-General.

P. S.- Secure the services of several persons, if possible, that know the road to Clinton and country immediately about there.
