HENRY PRINCE,

Brigadier-General of Volunteers.

INDIANAPOLIS, IND., May 2, 1864-1 p. m.

(Received 4. 30 p. m.)

Honorable EDWIN M. STANTON,

Secretary of War:

The difficulty with the cavalry regiments is settled to universal satisfaction by consolidating the mounted men, leaving the others to serve as infantry, till the Government can provide horses. The consolidation will be made at Nashville. The five regiments, 5,500 strong, number 1,200 mounted men. These will be organized either as three detached battalions or as one regiment, as may prove expedient. Two regiments have left and one (the Thirteenth) reached Nashville this morning. Two more leave to-morrow, the last leaves Thursday. The footmen are armed with Enfield rifles, mounted men with sabers only. The latter expect to receive carbines and pistols at Nashville. I return immediately.
