MR. VALL.VNDICIIIAM'S PROTEST.
Arrested without process of law,
without warrant from any judicial
officer, and now in military custody, I
have been served with a charge and
specification as from a Court Martial
or Military Commission. I am not in
cither the land nor the naval service of
the United States, and, therefore am
not tryablo for any cause by any such
court, but am subject, by tho express
terms of tho Constitution, to arrest
only by due process of law, or war
rant issued by some officor of a court
of competent jurisdiction for trial of
citizens. I am subject to indictment
and trial on presentment of grand jury,
and am entitled to a speedy trial, to be
confronted with witnesses, and to com
pulsory process for witnesses in my
behalf, and am entitled to counsel.
All these 1 demand, as my right, as a
citizen of the United States, under the
Constitution of the United States. "But
the alleged offence itself is no. known
to tho Constitution, nor to any law
thereof. It is words spoken to the
people of Ohio in an open public polit
ical meeting, lawfully and peacefully
assembled under the Constitution, and
upon full notice.
It is the words of a citizen, of tho
public policy, of the public servants of
the people, by which policy it was al
leged that the wellfaro of tho country
was not promoted. It was an appeal
to the people to change that policy,
not by frrco", but by tho elections and
tho bal ot box. It is not pretended
. that 1 counseled disobedience to the
Constitution, or resistance to law or
lawful authority. I have never done
I have nothing further to submit,
(Signed.) C. L. Vallandigham.

The Judgo Advocato simply remark
cd that tho accused had tho privilege
of counsel and of witnesses. It did
Uot become him to enter into any dis
cussion as to the jurisdiction ot the
Court. That the caso had been refer
