SIR: A letter received from Brigadier-General Huger, commanding at Norfolk, states that some weeks since he wrote to the Executive of North Carolina requesting that two regiments of the State might be kept at Garysburg and sent to him when wanted. He now desires these regiments be sent to Suffolk, where accommodations have been provided for a large force, and I have the honor to request that the necessary orders to that end may be given by Your Excellency.
