The Wheeling Legislature Going to Richmond


A member of Congress, who has just returned from Wheeling, states that the loyal Legislature of Virginia, now in session in that city, is getting ready to move to Richmond.  The capture of the State capital is regarded as certain, and the Legislature proposes to take time by the forelock and occupy the State House as the legitimate representative body of the State.
