JACKSON, MISS., April 1, 1863.
Fort Pemberton :
Featherston's brigade and a field battery from Maury's division left
on Sunday to report to you, and I have no doubt will reach you to-day.

VICKSBURG, April 1, 1863.
Lieutenant-General PEMBERTON :
I have reason to believe that the enemy are trying to get into upper
Deer Creek, and also into Sunflower, through Hushpuckanaw. Have

this district. If the Yankee ships can be prevented from cutting off our
