MONUMENT TO GEN. LEE>

GEN. LORD WOLSELEY MAY HELP UNVEIL IT AT RICHMOND.

RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 11.—Gov. Fitzhugh Lee has invited Gen. Lord Wolseley of England to take part in the ceremonies attending the unveiling of the monument to Gen. Robert E. Lee. That gentleman will probably accept the invitation. The Governor has also been urging ex-President Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy to be present on the same occasion. If the ex-President’s health permits it the Governor is sure that he will attend.

The movement is almost completed, and Mercie’s equestrian statue of Gen. Lee will, it is believed, be finished and be here ready to have the unveiling some time in December. Gov. Lee’s term expires Jan. 1, and he is very anxious that the completion of this monument to his relative and old commander shall be signalized during his administration. If Mr. Davis comes here he will be accompanied by his wife and daughter, Miss Winnie. They, as well as Lord Wolseley, will be guests at the Executive Mansion.
