Gen. Beauregard according to a Memphis paper . . .

. . . has ordered the disbanding of a number of Rebel cavalry regiments on account of the scarcity of forage. It complains likewise that by the eight cavalry regiments in the battle near Pittsburgh Landing only three charges were made, and these only by bodies from 300 to 800 each.
