The Congressional election.

The election for members of Congress takes place on the 6th of November, and though we have not yet had the usual evidences of political excitement, the number of competing candidates will give a lively aspect to the contest. In this district, the citizens have an opportunity of selecting from a list of five, namely: John Tyler, George W. Randolph, James Lyons, William H. Macfarland, and Baker P. Lee. There may yet be other announcements, but it is presumed that this list will furnish the representation in Congress.
