istration can constitutionally come into power, " and the canvass may be continued as, with some honorable exceptions, it has begun, by the billingsgate abuse and calumnious charges against our candidates and their friends; yet, from all these causes we have nothing to fear. Success is in our hands if we are true to duty. Under the protection of Divine Providence we can achieve for our country a victory greater in its results than any present military success. We can elect McClellan and Pendleton in spite of office-holders, contractors, and administrative influence and power; and that done, in a short time thereafter State after State will be found returning to allegiance, until, at a date not remote, the Union will be restored, fraternal affections revived, and peace and plenty and happiness and national character and power be substituted for division, hatred, war, destitution, wretchedness, national dishonor and comparative weakness. With regard, your obedient servant Reverdy
rom thence removed on Saturday to the Hall of the House of Representatives, in the capitol building, to await the hour appointed for the funeral to take place. At the hour above named his remains were placed in the hearse, which was drawn by four white horses, and followed by the members of his old brigade, the State Guard, a company of artillery, several distinguished civilians and military officers, together with a number of mourners and friends, the cortege proceeded to Hollywood Cemetery, where appropriate services were performed by Rev. James A. Duncan; after which, his body was deposited in a private vault to await removal to his native State. Among those who acted as pall bearers were Generals Fields, Bragg, Corse and Pendleton, Judge Reagan, Colonel Kane and Dr. Charles Magill. The procession was a very large one, and, taken all together, it was one of the most impressive and imposing displays which has taken place in this city on any similar occasion for many years past.
sufficient to indicate that those States have gone for the Lincoln party. The Tribune says: Our returns from Ohio, as yet, include the soldiers' vote in two or three hospitals only; but the home vote alone shows a large Union majority, which will of course be largely increased by the returns from the armies in the field. Even without this, the Union majority is large, and the gain of representatives in Congress decided. Messrs. Hayes and Eggleston (Union) succeed Messrs. Long and Pendleton (Copper) in the two Cincinnati districts, while Samuel Shellabarger (Union) has beaten S. S. Cox, (Copper) in the Columbus district by 1,000 majority on the home vote, which that of the army is certain largely to increase. Pennsylvania has probably given us a small majority on the home vote, which that of the army will largely increase.--The gains reported in our telegraphic dispatches are gains on the Governor vote of last year, when no soldiers voted save at their respective homes.
mbers answered to their names--five more being necessary to constitute a quorum. Adjourned. House of Delegates. The House of Delegates assembled at 12 o'clock, Mr. Sheffey in the chair.

Mr. Pendleton submitted a series of resolutions in relation to the state of the country and expressive of the sentiments of the Legislature as to the conduct of Virginia during the present war. They were ordered to be printed. A committee appointed to wait on the Governor returned and stated that the Governor would communicate the message to the House immediately.--The message was accordingly read, after which the House adjourned. We give the following synopsis of it, not being able to print
rebel property in the Valley and along the Manassas Gap railroad. The electors chosen at the recent Presidential election in all the Yankee States met on Wednesday and cast their votes for President and Vice-President of the United States. The place of meeting in each State was the capital thereof. All the electors voted for Lincoln for President and Johnson for Vice-President, except those chosen in New Jersey, Kentucky and Delaware, who cast their ballots for General McClellan and Pendleton. In the Yankee Senate, on Wednesday, a remonstrance from citizens of Louisiana against the admission of Cutler and Smith to the Senate from that State was presented. Mr. Powell offered a resolution calling for the report of the proceedings of the court-martial appointed to investigate the conduct of General Payne while in command at Paducah, Kentucky, which was laid on the table till the announcement of the standing committee.

The House reconsidered the resolution by which the body agreed to adjourn over on the 21st instant (Wednesday) to the 4th of January, and made their action conform to that of the Senate, which voted to adjourn over on that day to the 9th of January. On motion of M
most eminent men in polities, in letters, and in professional life, and with the beauty and grace of feminine loveliness — all attracted to do honor to the elevation of one whose talents and worth only had raised him to the greatest honor of his profession — that of presiding in the highest tribunal of the nation. It was gratifying to notice in the assemblage several of the most prominent political opponents of Mr. Chase--among them the Democratic candidate for the Vice-Presidency, Mr. Pendleton, and Mr. Reverdy Johnson. Within the bar were the venerable Thomas Ewing, of Ohio, ex-Secretary of the Treasury; Mr. Orville H. Browning, of Illinois; Mr. Carlisle, of Washington, etc. The daughters of the Chief Justice, Mrs. Sprague and Miss Chase, were courteously accommodated with chairs just below the bench, surrounded by a brilliant throng of ladies, from different parts of the country. The Judges entered from their private room on the left of the chamber, the procession led b
a county, tendering his resignation as a member of the body upon the ground that the Secretary of War had denied him a furlough from the military service to fill his seat in the House. After a lengthy discussion, a resolution, offered by Mr. Pendleton, of Ohio, was adopted, directing the Committee on Confederate Relations to inquire and report upon the case. Mr. Fry, of Madison, submitted a memorial, adopted by the county court of Madison county, complaining of grievous and unwarrantey by Confederate officers just upon the heel of the late Yankee raids, that left the people barely a sufficient subsistence for themselves. The subject was referred to a joint select committee of the two Houses. A resolution, offered by Mr. Pendleton, and adopted, directs the Committee on Finance to inquire into the expediency of providing, by law, for the collection of the amount due by the Confederate States to the States of Virginia, reported to the auditing board as exceeding eight mi

When the doors were re-opened the House adjourned.
f copperhead and traitor, I see on the other side of the House the editor of the Tribune, Mr. Greeley, conferring with members as to measures of peace. That editor, in his issue of yesterday, urges that attempts be made for peace, at least that, as a Christian people, we are bound to ascertain what the rebels will do. Mr. Stevens--I do not agree with Mr. Greeley, though I think him a patriot. Mr. Cox--Yet you denounce the Chicago Convention, General McClellan and my colleague, Mr. Pendleton, by odious words, for saying what the patriot, Mr. Greeley, published yesterday. I ask to have the article read for the instruction of the other side. The Clerk read the Tribune article on the Blair embassy, taking ground in favor of reaching the rebels by a mission of peace, and that no harm could come even if it failed, etc. Mr. Cox inquired — Why does not the gentleman denounce Mr. Greeley for saying only what we have ever said? He is frank and outspoken, yet he dare not d
