TWO MILES SOUTH OF HILLSBOROUGH,

April 15, 1865-6. 30 p. m.

General WHEELER:

GENERAL: Your two dispatches of 6. 40 a. m. and 1. 45 p. m. are just received. There has been no advance of the enemy on this front to-day. As the infantry have now a good start, it will not be necessary for you to engage the enemy seriously unless you can strike their cavalry. I hope that you will make a squadron retire on the direct road to Hillsborough, if you fall back beyond that point. You shall hear from me to-morrow.

TREASURY, C. S. A.,

Greensborough, N. C., April 16, 1865.

General G. T. BEAUREGARD, Commanding, &c.:

SIR: I have the honor to again invite your attention to the wishes of the President in connection with the coin of the Confederate States remaining in my hands, as indicated in his order addressed to you, which I had the honor to communicate to you on yesterday.
