RALEIGH, April 29, 1865.

Major-General SHERMAN:

General Johnston informs me that the greater portion of his cavalry have gone off and that he has not been able to stop them. I do not see that I can do anything about it until we have disposed of the troops that remain. The cavalry seems to be going south.

J. M. SCHOFIELD,

Major-General.

General JOSEPH E. JOHNSTON, C. S. Army,

Greensborough, N. C.:

When will you be ready to turn over the arms and other public property at Greensborough? I propose to send up a regiment of infantry with the staff officers to-morrow to guard the property turned over. If this meets with your views please inform me. I will send up this evening my approval of the supplemental terms, with some modifications, which I deem necessary.

J. M. SCHOFIELD,

Major-General.

GREENSBOROUGH, April 29, 1865.

Major-General SCHOFIELD,

Raleigh:

I reported by telegraph yesterday that we are ready for the printed forms. I have ordered the arms to be sent to Greensborough, where we have ordnance officers and a sufficient guard. The arms turned in will be as safe under that guard as your own. I hope, therefore, that your troops will not be brought up yet. We are ready for your staff officers. Our troops are a good deal dispersed to procure forage.

J. E. JOHNSTON,

General.
