A Congressman from West Virginia.

--A letter in the New York Herald from Ravenwood, "West, Va.," gives the triumph of a virtuous "supporter of the Administration:"

‘ It is now ascertained that the Hon. K. V. Whaley is elected to Congress from this district, over Col. D. Frost, the radical candidate, by six to seven hundred majority. The result in this district is a well minted rebuke to the Wheeling wire pullers, who sought to defeat Mr. Whaley by sheer lying.--Mr. Whaley was a member of the last Congress, and gave the new State project his warm support.
