mi'iit. II lie should claim that the
public safety rtquirvd it, he could ar

coiiscit'wtiwmdisclii.rjju of liig dnties,
ptrrtilyzo the judicial power, or super
fede t, by tho aiib&titution ot courta
nmrtial, eulject to hia own will,
throughout the whole country. If
tiny one of the States, even far remo
ved from the rebellion, should not
sustain his plau for prosecuting the
war, he could, tu tta yk vt imllic
safety, annul and sot at defiance the
State laws and authorities, while in
the faithful discharge of their duties,
or ho could absolutely control tho
action, either of Congress or the Su
preme Court, by arresting and impris
oning its members, and, upon tho
utne grguud he could suspend the
ehctive franchise, postpone the elec
tions, and declare th perpetuity of his
ligh perogatlve. And ncitlicr the
power or impeachment, nor tho elec
tions of the pcoplo could be made
available against such concentration
power.
Surely it is not necessary to subvert
ireo government in tiiis country in
order t put down the rebellion : and
it can not be done under the pretense
vi jjunrnguowu uie reDeiiion. indeed,
it is 'plain rhat your Administration
'Las Leon weakened and greatly wea
kened by the assumption of power not
-ueiogaiea in mo constitution.
in your answr you say to us
'Ydu claim that men may, if they
cliooso, embarrass thoso whose duty
it is to combat a giant rebellion and
then oo dealt with in terms w if there
wero no rebellion." You will find
yourself in fault if you Bearch our
voiiimuuieuuou to you, tor any such
an idea. The undersigned believe
mat tne uonstitution and laws of the
land, propoily administered, furnish
ample power to put down an insur
rection without the aesumptiou of
power not granted. And if existing
legislation be inadequate, it is the
-duty of Congress to consider what
lurtber. legislation is necessary, and
ao uju&e euimuie provision by law.
You claim that the military arrests
made by your Administration, aro
meiely preventive remedies "as in
junctions to stay injury or proceedings
to keep the peace, and not for punish
munt." The ordinary preventive
remedies alluded to authorised bv
established law, but the preventive
proceedings you institute have their
authority merely in tho will of the
Executive or that of officers subordi
nate to his authority. And in this
proceeding a discretion seems to be
txcrcided as to whether tho prisoner
buiwi ue anowea a trial or even be
permitted to know tLe natnra ot the
complaint alleged against bim, or the
name of his accuser, if tho proceed
ings be merely preventive, why not
uuow me prisoner the benelit of a
bond to keep the peace ? Cut if no
offense bus bsen committed, why was
Mr. v uiianaigiwin Lied, convicted
and sentenced by a court-martial I
-and why the actual punishment bv
iniprisoment or banishment, without
iue opportunity or obtaining bis lib
erty in the mode usual in preventive
remedies, and yet eay it is not for
punishment f
You still place Mr. Vallandigham's
conviction and baniahment upon the
grounu luai no nad damaged the mill
. tary service Jy discouraging enlist
; nientsand encouraging desertions.ctc.
and yet you have not even preteuded
to controvert our position that he was
not charged withried or convicted for
any ancu uUtiiso beforo tho court
partial. lu auiwer to tur position that Mr.
Vallandigham was entitled to a trial
in the civil tribunals, by virtue of the
late acts of Congress, you say : "1
ccrtaiuly do not know that Mr. Val
landighain bas specifically and by
direct language advised against en-
li8tmenis and in favor of desertions
and resistance to drafting," etc., and
yet, in a subsequent part of your ans
wer, after speaking of certain disturb
ances which are alleged to have oc
curred in resistanco of the arrest of
deserters, and ofihe enrollment pre
paratory to the draft, and which you
attribato mainly to the couree Mr.'
Yallaudigham bas pursued, you say
b-t be bas made speeches against the
war in the midst of resistance to it,
that "Le has never been known, in
any instance, to counsel agaiuet such
resistance," and that "it is next o
impossible to repel the interference
that has counseled in favor of it."
l'ermit us to say that your information
is most grievously at fault. The
undersigned have been in the habit t f
bearing Mr. Vallaudigbam speak be
fore popular assemblages, and the
appeal with confidence to every truth
ful person who.Las ever board him.

And," Tvero it iot foreign to the pur
poses of This communication, we would
undertake to establish, to the tfifuc
tion of ai.y candid persoa, that the
disturbiiDCea among tho peoplo, to
winch you allude, in opposition to the
arrest ol descTteta and tho draft, have
occasioned mainly by the measures,!
policy, nndtouduot ol jour adminis :
tration, and the course ot its political
fiiendB. But if the circumstantial
evidenco exists, to which vou alludo(i
whicli makes "it impossibq to repel1
the infereuco, that Mr. Vallandighanii
has counseled directly in favor of
this resistance, and that the Bame hm

duct, why was bo not turned over to
the civil authorities to bo tried under
tho late acts of Congress t If there be!
any foundation in fact for your stute- j
ment8 implicating him in resistance
to the constituted authorities, ho ie
liable to bucIi prosecution. And we
now demand, hs a mere act of justice
to bim, an investigation of this mat
ter, beforo a jury of his country ; and
respectfully insist that fairness re
quires, cither that you retract these
charges which you make against him.
or that you revoke your order ot ban
isliuvcxt and allow him tho opportunity
of an investigation before un impar
tial jury.
The committco do not deem it
necessary to reiwl at length the impu
tation, that the attitude) of themselve

lhey use readily in the midst of po!
ticians heated with tho excitement ol
partisan ptrile. During the two yean
in whuh the Democratic parfy ofOhi
has been constrained to oppose tl
policy of tho Administration, nnd t
stand up in defl-neo of the Constitutioi
and of personal rights, this charge hai
beon tepeatedly made. It has faliet
harmless, however, at the feet ofthosi
whom it was intended to injure. The
committee believe it will do so agam
If it wero proper to do so in this papor
they might suggest that the moasuret
of the Administration, and its cliao
ges-df policy in the prosecution of the
war, have been the fruitlul sources ol
discouraging enlistments and indue
ing dessrtiuns, and furnish a reason
for the undeniable fact, that the first
call for volunteers was answered by-
very many more tnanwere demanded
and that tho next call for soldiers will
probably be responded to by drafted
men alone. The observation of the
President in this connection, that
neither tho Oonvontiou in its reeolu
tions, nor the committee in its com
imiuicatioD, intimate that they "are
conscious of au existing rebellion
being in progress with the av jwed
object ot destroying the Union.
needs, perhaps, no reply. Tho Demo
cratic parly ot Uuio has felt so keenly
tho condition of the country, and been
so stricken to tho heart by the imslor
tunes and sorrows which have befallen
it, that they hardly deemed it neces
sary by solemn resolution, when -their
very State exhibited every whero the
sad evidences of war, to roauud tho
President that they were aware of its
existence.
In the conclusion of yon communi
cation, you, propose that, it a majority
of the committee shall affix tlioir sig
natures to a duplicato copy of it, which
you liavo furnished, they Ehall stand
committed to three propositions there
in at length set forth, that you will
publish the names tlnia signed, and
that this publication shall operate aa
a revocation of the order of banish
ment. " The committee cannot refrain
from the expression of their surprise,
that the Presiednt should make the
fate of Mr. Vallandigham depend
upon tho opinion ot this committoe
upon these propositions. If tho arrest
and banishment were legal, and were
deserved ; if the President exercised
pwcr clearly delegated, under cir
cumstances which warrauted its exer
cise, the order ought not to be revoked,
merely becauao tho committee hold,
or express, opinions accordant with
those of the l reeident. If the arrest
add banishment were not legal, or
wero not deserved by Mr. Vananditr
ham, then sorely he is entitled to an
immediate and unconditional dig
charge.
iue people of Ubio were not so deeply
moved by tho action of tLe President,
merely because they were concerned
for the personal safety or convenience
Mr. Vallandigham, but bicauio
they saw in his arrest and banishment
an attack upou their own personal
rights ; and they attach valuo to bis
disbarge chiefly as it will indicate an
abandonmen t of the clai m to the power
of such arrest and banishment. How
ever just the undersigned might re

soveral propositious submitted by the

that they have not been authorized to

of the United States to proenro the

only an iirputation upon their own
sincerity and fiddity as "itlzens of the
united btatts; and also carrying
with it by implication a concession of
tho legality vf his arrert trial and
banishment, against which thev. and
tho Convention they represent", have
solemnly protisted." Aed while they
Imvo asked tho revocation of the order
of banishment not ns a favor, but as a j
Rioirr, duo to the people of Ohio, and
with a view to avoid the possibility of
conflict or disturbance ot the public
tianquility ; they do not do this, nor
does Mr. Vallandigham desire it, at
any sacrifice of their digmty and self
respect;
Ilia idea that such apledaa as that
asked from tho nndorsictied would
secure the public safety sufficiently to
compensate for any mistako of the
rresident in discharging Mr. Yallan
digham, i in their opinion, a mere
evasion of the grave question involved
in this dlscuseicn, and of a direct ant
wcr to their demand. And this is
made especially apparent by the fact
that this pledois asked in a corctnu
uieation, which concludes with an
intimation of a disposition on the part
of tho President to repeat tho astg
complainod of.
Tho undersigned, therefore, havina
rnlly discharged the duty enjoined
