The Betting men

are yet at sea as to the vote of Virginia. The backers of Bell think they have the best of it, but are afraid yet to crow, while the Breckinridge entertain strong hopes of passing their opponents at the distance stand and winning the purse. If the race, so far, is not a dead heat, it is too close to be decided till reports are heard from all the judges appointed to note the running at every point. Wait for the official returns.
