Lieutenant Commander W. E. FITZHUGH,

CAPTAIN: The city of Camden, on the Ouachita River, having been recently occupied by troops of this department, I have the honor to request that you will permit steam-boats carrying troops or supplies under authority from these headquarters to pas sup Red and Ouachita Rivers to points within this department. Recent developments and events have rendered immediate action necessary; hence this direct request to you. The attention of Admiral Lee has been invited to this matter, and it is expected that you will receive instructions for your future guidance from him.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully, &c.,
J. J. REYNOLDS,

Major General JOHN POPE:
General Connor telegraph that Indians attack some station on telegraph line daily. That he needs two more regiments of infantry and five of cavalry. Part of cavalry are now on road. Rest will be in few days. That his stock is poor. That he has no doubt Mormons are connected with depredations west of mountains. That he can supply troops west of Rocky Mountains with forage from Utah. If you can get done, and have them shipped direct to Fort Leavenworth. The trouble now mostly west of Laramie. If Captain Coryell can send me 500 more horses I would like them. Approval of Colonel Potter's estimates arrived to-day.
