The Electoral College again assembled at the Capitol yesterday morning, and the members signed the certificates, which were afterwards sealed and delivered to Joseph Christian, Esq., messenger. Subsequent to adjournment, the members called upon President Davis and Vice-President Stephens, at their residences, and had two very pleasant interviews. It is now only about a year since the Electoral College of Virginia met in this city and cast the vote of the State for Bell and Everett. winding up the day with grand banquet at the Exchange Hotel. The stars and stripes were toasted until some of the guests saw more stars than they could count, yet there were those among them who foretold the present stats of affairs with prophetic wisdom. Truly a twelve-month has wrought wonderful changes, which we hope and believe will lead to glorious results.
