HILTON HEAD, S. C. June 12, 1865.

Brevet Major-General WILSON,

Macon, Ga.:

I have your dispatch of the 8th about the 2,000 cavalry. I would like them distributed as follows, so far as possible, without splitting battalions, with each detached battalion commanded by a field officer if practicable, viz: Five hundred to 600 to Augusta, to report to General Molineux; from 200 to 300 to Hawkinsville, to report by courier to General Washburn, at Doctortown; from 150 to 200 to Tallahassee, to report by telegraph to General Vodges, at Jacksonville; and the balance to Orangeburg, S. C., to report by telegraph to Major-General Hatch, at Charleston. I have ordered forage to be sent to Augusta, Tallahassee, and Orangeburg. I may not be able to get it to Hawkinsville in time, in which case the commands sent there may move down the river to Dosctortown, where they will meet it. Please answer.
