The North Carolina election.

--It appears to be certain that North Carolina has gone against "prompt action," but not for submission. The Raleigh Standard, (Union paper,) speaking of the result, says:

‘ "In speaking of the successful party as Unionists, we must not be understood as saying that they will submit to the administration of the Government on sectional or Black Republican principles, but that they are anxious to preserve the Union on a Constitutional basis, and to obtain such guarantees as will lead to a permanent reconstruction of the Union. The Unionists entertain hopes, and nearly all of them strong hopes, that the Union can and will be preserved, and they are willing to show their faith in this respect by their works. They are opposed to disunion at this time, and would regard it at any time as fraught with numerous and great calamities; and they are also opposed to the attempts which are being made to Mechanize this Republic by breaking it up and incurring the hazards of revolution simply on account of the election of Mr. Lincoln to the Presidency."
