General Fitzhugh Lee having kindly consented to repeat his lecture on Chancellorsville at several points in the South, for the benefit of the Society, arrangements are being made for him to lecture in Augusta, Ga., Savannah, Charleston, and other places.

A rare treat is in store for those who shall hear him.
