Major COSGROVE,

Have you any further information as to rebels moving across the road, and has the subsistence train left Lebanon? Can you send out any mounted force to meet the prisoners that left here to-day and assist in escorting them to Lebanon? If so, how many. Answer at once.

Two bands of rebels passed within eight miles of this place last night at 12 o'clock, about sixty each side of the town. I cannot pursue them for want of horses.

(Received 1.20 p. m. 14th.)

Colonel J. V. DU BOIS,

Will the mounted troops sent from this district in the Price chase be ordered here soon? I need them much in looking after small roving bands of guerrillas yet left on this side the Missouri River.

CLINTON B. FISK,

Brigadier-General.

WARRENTON, November 8, 1864.

General FISK:

The guerrillas are in Cavalry County. Major Montgomery, Sixth Missouri Cavalry, followed them to that county and returned to this place to vote. He will start again after the election in that direction. Colonel Dyer is in Louisiana and will be in Mexico to-morrow.

Colonel.
