The Congressional election.

Sufficient returns from all the Congressional Districts of the State have not yet been received to enable us to state with accuracy who will constitute the next delegation in Congress.

In the 1st District the candidates were M. R. H. Garnett, the present member, and Lieut. Gov. Montague. Returns meagre, but indicate the election of Montague.

In the 2d District the candidates were Gen. Mahone, Cole. Godwin and Parham, and Messrs. Hume and Whitfield. This district is entirely in the hands of the enemy, and the vote cast was by refugees and soldiers. Very few returns have been received, and no idea can be formed as to who has been successful.

In the 3d District (Richmond, &c.) Mr. Lyons, the present member, has been defeated by Col. Wickham.

In the 4th District, Mr. Collier, present member, is re-elected over Judge Gholson.

In the 5th District there was no opposition to the present member, Mr. Bocock.

In the 6th District the contest was between John Goode, jr., present member, and Col. Wm. Martin. Goode believed to be re-elected.

In the 7th District, Wm. C. Rives elected without opposition.

In the 8th District the contestants were D. C. Dejarnette, present member, and James Barbour. Returns indicate the re-election of Dejarnette.

In the 9th District Col. Funsten is elected over Mr. Menifee.

In the 10th District Mr. Boteler, the present member, was opposed by Col. F. W. M. Holliday, who is supposed to be elected.

In the 11th District Col. Baldwin is re-elected over Gov. Letcher.

In the 12th District the candidates were Mr. Staples, present member, and Col. H. A. Edmundson. No returns received.

In the 13th District the contest was between Mr. Preston, present member, and Col. Fayette McMullen. Returns favorable to the re-election of Preston.

In the 14th District the candidates were Messrs. Fitzhugh and Miller. Mr. Miller is the present member, and is believed to be re-elected.

In the 15th District Mr. Johnson, the present member, had no opposition.
