COLONEL: I return herewith the letter addressed by Governor Blasdel to Major-General McDowell. The letter from Judge Dunne to the Governor has beenr eturned as requested. In view of the condition of affairs in Humboldt County, Nev. Ter., as se tforth by Judge Dunne, I will recommend that a military post of one company of Nevada cavalry be established at the head of Paradise Valley, and maintained so long as it may be necessary for the protection of the settlers. The instructions given to Captain Wells to send a company in the direction of Smoke Creek were given because he had reported everything quiet in the region where he was operating, and as he had 150 men with him it was supposed that half of the number could be spared.

G. WRIGHT,
