Hillsborough, N. C.
   Orders for disposition of artillery are plain. One battery goes to Salisbury, another to Greensborough; but if there are no troops there it must go on to Salisbury to prevent capture. Third battery must be held ready to move at moment's notice. A train will leave here in morning for second battery.
