--A Yankee paper says that Beast Butler, in his first walk at Fortress Monroe, was astonished at meeting a rebel officer looking at a parade.
It was Gen. Fitz Hugh Lee.
On being told that he enjoyed the liberty of Old Point, Butler sharply expressed his disapproval of such a reprehensible courtesy.
The next day Lee made a voyage to Fort Lafayette.
