GEN. LEE’S BIRTHDAY.

MOBILE, Ala., Jan. 19.—The Lee Association observed the anniversary of the birth of Gen. Robert E. Lee by a grand parage, in which the foreign Consuls and city officers took part. Later in the day a banquet was given in Temperance Hall, at which ex-officers of both the Union and Confederate Armies were present. The best fraternal feeling prevailed. The celebration closed with a masked ball, which was well attended.
