Brigadier-General WHIPPLE:

Communication from General Forrest in regard to exchange of prisoners received at Whitesburg to-day will be forwarded to-morrow by train. Communication refers to arrangements previously made and suggests further arrangements for exchange of prisoners in the field, and is dated "In Field, March 13." On the 18th Colonel Conrad telegraphed from Decatur that a part of Forrest's command had relieved Redding in front of that post, which was telegraphed to General Rousseau.

R. S. GRANGER,

Brigadier-General.
