Political Views of General Lee.

From the Richmond Dispatch, June 4.

There is the best authority for stating that General ROBERT E. LEE, whose usual reticence on political subjects is well known throughout the country, has several times of late given, without reserve, his opinion about the present situation in Virginia. He expresses himself as unqualifiedly opposed to the test-oath and disfranchising clauses of the Constitution, but says that if he had a vote it should be given for that instrument as expurgated, as the only means of averting the serious dangers that threaten the Commonwealth in case of a continuance of military rule with WELLS in the Gubernatorial chair. The election of Colonel WALKER, and of sound Conservative candidates for the Legislature, he deems of vital importance to the interests of Virginia, as a stop toward relieving the new Constitution in the future of any minor obnoxious features that it may retain after it shall have been expurgated.
