Every precaution must be taken to guard against the repetition of the disorders of yesterday. The post commander reports that detachments from this army in the city with their arms attacked and overpowered his guards. Hereafter no soldier will be permitted to enter the city except under pass from his division commander. He must present a soldierly appearance and wear his side-arms. If he abuses the liberty granted him, all passes will be refused him while the army remains in the neighborhood of Louisville. All passes will expire at sundown.
