LOUISVILLE, KY., March 27, 1865.

The guerrillas are again on the railroad near Glasgow. An expedition must be organized at once to go for them. What can you do?

LEXINGTON, March 27, 1865.

Major-General PALMER,

Headquarters:

If you will have sent to Camp Nelson immediately 500 horse equipments, I will furnish sufficient force to protect Louisville and Nashville Railroad; also clean out Metcalfe and Monroe Conties. I have no mounted force that can be sent without exposing other points. I will do all I can to organize force for purposes named in your dispatch. If I had been supplied with equipments for First Kentucky, I would have had men there now.
