HDQRS. FORCES AROUND JACKSON, Number 1. Jackson, MISS., June 5, 1863.

The roads diverging from the town of Jackson will be guarded in the following order:

Brigadier-General Evans will guard the Canton and Livingston roads; Brigadier-General Helm the Clinton road; Brigadier-General [D. W.] Adams the Raymond road and small road between the Raymond and Gallatin roads; Brigadier-General Stovall the Gallatin road, including the branch to Raymond, about 2 miles from Jackson, and the Monticello road. One regiment from each brigade will be used for this purpose, and will be thrown forward from 2 to 3 miles from Jackson, according to wood and water, with pickets one-half mile an advance. They will resist strongly the advance of the enemy, and give early information of his approach to these headquarters. No one will be allowed to pass out of the lines without a pass from the headquarters of the Western Department, provost-marshal, or these headquarters. When any suspicion is attached to persons coming within the lines, they will be sent, under guard, to the commandant of the post.

By command of Major-General Breckinridge:

Assistant Adjutant-General.
