Gen. Robert E. Lee at the Virginia Springs.

A letter from White Sulphur Springs, in Greenbrier county, W.V., to the Baltimore Sun, dated July 20th, says:

Among the notable persons who arrived yesterday, was Gen. ROBERT E. LEE and his family, who will spend a couple of weeks here, and then go over to the Sweet Springs. Gen. LEE arrived here on his famous gray horse, which he rode all the way from Lexington. On his approach to the hotel, a stranger would have taken him for a plain Virginia farmer. He looks remarkably well, and although his hair is gray, he has not otherwise changed so much in appearance as not to be readily recognized by those who knew him before the war. Like WASHINGTON, LAFAYETTE, and other rebel patriots of the revolution, LEE is respected and beloved even by those who were engaged against him in the late unhappy struggle. There was no excitement or furore on the General’s arrival, but every one here treated him with the most profound respect and the greatest courtesy. On his appearance in the ball-room last evening, he received the respect and smiles of the ladies from all parts of the country, but retired early to his cottage in the Baltimore-row, where he was serenaded about 12 o’clock by Prof. ROSENBERG’S Baltimore band. The General is accompanied by his wife, daughter and son, the first of whom is quite an invalid, and has to be removed from the cottage to the spring and baths on a chair placed on wheels.
