The Whig of yesterday nominates Horace Greeley as one of the United States senators from Virginia, and gives many excellent reasons why he should be elected. Horace can hardly be called an "inhabitant" of Virginia; but this constitutional difficulty could be overcome, the Whig thinks, by a few days' or hours' residence within the limits of the State. We do not expect that Mr. Greeley will receive a very large vote in the Legislature; but we should not be at all afraid to trust him.
