It is kriown in this cojlmmunity that
there are two; Editors con4uctiug this
paper. The Editor-in-ohitf, H .A.
0IAILLARD, sq., is also Commissioder
in Equity. Owing.to fresuhg official
business for some timo before the CoT%
vening of the Court of Equity, now in
session, he. has not used pen or soissors
on the NEWS. During that tim6 the
call f6r a National Unio Conv'ention
was issued. I at once opposed the
proposition that we of the South should
heed that call. Mr. GQIL.Ant a'd
myself differ upon the subjeot, but i1
the most pleasant manner, and this
explanation I am convinced, under
circum,stances,is due to the publio.
Hereafter all editorials, at least those
touching important points upon which
we differ, will appear above our res
pective signatuses ipitially.

Platform of the National Union Club,
Bel6w we present for the considera
tion of our readers the platform of
the National Union Club. It is the
ground our distinguished . Governor
stands upon, it contains principles
which he cordially" endorses, and of
which he says "it seems to ine that
there is not'one (principlo) to, 'which
this State cannot subscribe' in iongr
and with sincerity."
Gentle reader, woulA you know
what your honor andr sincerity have to
subscribe,to ? Just read this:
