In the Field, Va., August 13, 1864.

MEMORANDUM: From various reports of deserters and refugees and from all the circumstantial evidence that can be obtained, it seems pretty certain that Conner's brigade, of Willcox's division, has left and gone to join Early up the Valley; also that Gregg and Benning have gone from Field's division. The whole division is reported under marching orders, but all of it has not yet left. Supposing, however, all the force here named to be there, and allowing 250 men to a regiment,
