The Congressional election.

Returns come in very slowly, and some time must elapse before the full vote of the State, including the military camps, can be obtained. It is the general belief that the Hon. John Tyler has been elected to represent this district in Congress, but we are not justified in the positive announcement of such a result upon the limited information before us. From the fourth district we have some additional intelligence. Hon. Roger A. Pryer has carried the county of Cumberland by a large majority. His vote at the Court-House was 84, at Oak Forest 40, and at Walton's Mills 104. Hon. James A. Seddon, who was not a candidate, received 16 votes at Oak Forest precinct.

We have a report from the seventh district that Holcom be has 135 majority in Buckingham county. The following returns are received from the sixth district, Pittsylvania C. H. John Goods 51, Tredway 40; Danville, Goods 30 majority, and majorities at Smith's Store and Cascade precincts. Henry county gives Goods a handsome majority.--In the fifth district, Halifax gives Bocock 600 majority, and he is also reported to have carried Mecklenburg county.
