CAIRO, 2. P. M. April 2. – Brig. Gen. John A. Logan has so far recovered from his wound received at Fort Donelson as to be able to rejoin his brigade, and to-day started for the seat of war on the Tennessee. His wound is still very painful.
Lieut. Col. Ranford has been appointed Colonel of the 11th regiment to fill the vacancy occasioned by the promotion of Col. Wallace to Brigadiership.
Lieut. Col. Dunlap of the 29th regiment has resigned and arrived [at] Cairo, as have also several other officers of a lesser grade.
Brig. Gen. John Cook, of the 7th regiment is here, in route, for the theater of operations in Tennessee.
It is a very singular fact that those who have resigned, are invariably those who have hitherto escaped unharmed, while the wounded ones are as invariably returning to their duties. Comment is unnecessary.
Gen. Strong is absent to-day, at Island 10.
The Hospital boat, Louisiana, started for the Tennessee river with a full compliment of doctors and nurses on board.
