and we have no wish lo do so ; bnt Gen.
Lee has a history which is of interest lo
the genera reader.
He was born in Folton. Oswego Co ,
and graduated at Union College in 1851
His father, Hon. M. Lindley Le, was a
member of tbe Thirty-sixth Congress, and.
has held many pnblic positions in this
8tate. Yonng Lea went to Kansas at an
early day in its history, and became con
spicuous from his devotion to the cause
of Freedom. As an Editor, Jodge, and
Soldier, he has made a manly name.
The first company of the first regiment in
Kansas waa raised largely through his in
fluence. Of the first cavalry regiment
raised in that State, L"e was made the
Mnjor. Those soldiers were known aa the
"Jayhawkera" a name afterwards ap
plied to the other soldiers and citizens of
Kansas generally, from their earnestness
in fighting rebels and traitors wherever
they met them C. R. Jennison was the
Colonel, 'and D R. Anthony, formerly
of this city, the Lieutenant Colonel of
that regiment. When ihey left the ser
vice. Lee donned the eagle, and look his
rongli-riders through the lines of the en

Jayhawkera went, rebels were whipped
and the shackles fell from the slave. The
rebel prisoners were hronght into camp

In Grant's fights before Vicksbnrg, Gen.
Lee commanded a Division, and in oni
of the charges on the Big Black, rifle
shot went through his head, ne soon
recovered, however, and was in the saddle
again. Gen. Bankt made him Chief of
Cavalry, and he cnmraandel that arm nf
the service in the Rd River Expolition
Gen. Le has remained in the service
nntil recently. He was present, as a cit
izen, at the riots in New Orleans, ant Iii-t
speech describing those terrible scene has
recently been very widely publishpd.

that Kansas will be entirely Irne to her

At the breaking ont of tbe war, in 18(51.
Gen. Lee was Judge of the 21 Judicial
District of Ibis State. In SeptPmber or
Uctober lie resigned that position, to en
ter the service as Mnjor ot the 7th Kan.
In this he remained nnlil the close nf the
war, hewing ont of the hard confli t a
solid record made up of valiant deeds ;
establishing a reputation for bravery and
skill, and being generally known as the
rough-rider of the south-west. He left

mental and normal development, and by
special professional study ; and that we

ria, by the energy and ability of its prin
cipal and teachers, is laying the founda
tion of a noble work ; and that it has onr
most, hearty sympathy and support.
Another evidence of the usefulness and
enntinned prosperity of thet school, is
fonnd in the fact that the increasing nnm
bor of students has rendered other and
larger buildings than those bow in nse
necessary to its accommodation. The
commodious edifice now building at the
State's expense for the Norma School,
and the large Boarding Hone lor the nse
of the students, at the expense of the citi

makes no charge for'tnitinn or text books
to' those students 'who intend to become
