Virginia cavalry, was commissioned by the President a Brigadier-General on Monday, Gen. Lee entered the present war as Captain of Lee's Virginia Rangers, a cavalry corps composed of excellent material. He seems to have inherited a full share of the military genius of "Light Horse Harry," his grandfather, and of the distinguished Gen. Robert E. Lee, whose son he is. No men in the Confederacy have lost more by the incursions of the Yankees than the Lee family. First taking possession of Arlington Heights, they completed their scheme of devastation and destruction by stealing all the memorials, including pictures of the Pater PatriƓ, left by G. W. P. Custis, his adopted son. Next they seize, desecrate, and burn the White House, the property of the Junior Lee, run off his negroes, destroy his crops, kill his cattle and stock, and, in fact commit all the excesses that a devilish ingenuity can suggest. Yankee depredations on this family alone amount in dollars to hundreds of thousands.
