The Cavalry Corps will march at 5.30 a. m. to-morrow, March 21, in the following order: First. The First Division, Brigadier-General McCook commanding, on the right of the road running nearest Bear Creek to Buzzard Roost, and thence by the most practicable route to Russellville. Second. The Second Division, Brigadier General Eli Long commanding, in the center by the road through his camp to Cherokee Station, thence by the best road that can be found to Russellville. Third. The Fourth Division on the left by the most direct route to Barton's Station, and thence by the Newport road toward Russellville, passing by Throckmorton's Mill and the Crooked Oak Cross-Road, unless and equally good road can be found still farther to eastward between the Newport and Tuscumbia roads. In the latter case it may keep entirely to the left of Russellville, and direct its march on Newport or Kinclock, this direction to be preferred. It is possible that only one practicable wagon road can be found across the mountains, in which case the trains will pass in the order of their arrival at it. Division commanders will take every means to inform themselves of the country, the practicable roads in the direction of the march, and
