HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FIFTH ARMY CORPS,

HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FIFTH ARMY CORPS,
December 6, 1864. (Received 3.50 p.m.)

Will you please direct General Terry to relieve Ames and his pickets so as to let him withdraw from the line.

HEADQUARTERS TWENTY-FIFTH ARMY CORPS,
December 6, 1864. (Received 11.35 a.m.)

 Brigadier-General TURNER,
Chief of Staff:

The other day you ordered Colonel Bates, commanding First Brigade, of Paine's division, which is now in reserve on the Bermuda line, to report to General Paine. He did so. Yesterday General Ferrero placed one of these regiments back in the line, took away the regular brigade commissary, and he is making details for building hospital from it. Now, what I wish to know is, has General Ferrero any authority to do this, and was this not done in violation of your orders to have that brigade ready for a move?

 G. WEITZEL,

Major-General.
