The North Carolina election.

To every man who really loves his country, the news from this election will be as refreshing as would be the tidings of a great victory in Georgia or on the Appomattox. The old North State has crushed treason like an egg-shell in her mighty hand. Hereafter let no man imagine aught against the staunch fidelity of her adhesion to her sister States, or her zeal in prosecuting the war which we are waging for the salvation of us all. It is astonishing what a noise a small faction can make, with a newspaper or two at its disposal. A little knot of disappointed politicians had half persuaded the rest of the Confederacy that old North Carolina was untrue to the cause. But she has put an end forever to all doubt upon that subject. Her response to the noble army which she has in the field is worthy of that army and of herself. All honor to the glorious old State.
