Whiggain of 400 and the gain of a veritable "Whig

From the same, April 28.
The Intelligence from Virginia continues highly
favorable. A letter from Baltimore gives the Whig
members, as far as heard from, 49 to 14 Van Bu
ren in 51 counties. This is indeed gratifying, and
will give the Whigs a decided majority in the Leg
islature, should the other portions of the State do
no better than they did last year. The numerical
gain of the Whigs ha3 also been very large. We
are indebted to our attentive friends of the Rich
mond Whig, for a slip dated Monday, which gives
the details from a large number of counties. In
fact, the news of last night has settled the politi
cal character of Virginia, to our mind at least
But as the ireneral result will be known in a few
days, wc forbear from any thing like exultation.

The following resolutions were adopted by
the State Convention of the friends of Harri

22d of February, 18-10.
" Resolved, That whenever the opponents of
Martin Van Buren, in the several Uongression-
al Districts of Pennsylvania, shall have norm
nated an Elector or Electors, and received froni
such nominees a pledge to vote for WILLIAM
HENRY HARRISON of Ohio, as President,
and JOHN TYLER of Virginia, as Vice Pres
ident, the name of such Elector or Electors,
and the pledge of said Electors, bo forthwith
foiwarded to the State Committee.
Resolved, That it shall be the duty of the
Stale Committee to publish a correct Electoral
Ticket, so soon as the same shall have been
finally adjusted by the set eral districts."
As several of the Congressional Districts
have not yet reported the names of their candi
