CHAPEL HILL, March , 1863.
General POLK, Shelbyville:
GENERAL: Yours, containing copy of dispatch from Columbia, just received. I will endeavor to keep you, and all others interested, advised if they should move in my vicinity. I have nothing since 11 o’clock last night, except a report, obtained from citizens by my scouts near Caney Springs, that Federal cavalry, 1,500 strong, left Raleigh Hill yesterday morning, going toward Franklin.
