It is the plea of the anarchist, the outlaw, and the traitor, and the excuse and shelter of thousands who indulge in incendiary speech and iu the same breath protest against being regarded as outr laws or traitors. As with one voice, all tqen of these classes ape arg-Uingijust now that free speech means lawless speech, vej the^ know full well that there is no such thing as free speech except within the limits of constitution al and statue laws: that there is no freedom qf the press except V?ithin th^ limits of the law of libe|.

D* ment of the United States, and declaring disloyal sentiments and opinions with the object and pur pose pf weakening the powers of the government in its efforts to suppress an unlawful rebellion. He was found guilty and sen tenced to close confinement in a fortress during the continuance of the war. President Lincoln modified the sentence by direct ing that Mr. Vallanigham be sent south into the enemy's lines, with an order that in case of his return he should serve diit the sentence. A few residents of Ohio sent a formal remonstrance to President Lincoln. In reply, the president said: "Mr. Vallandigham's views are hostile to the war on the part of ttye Union, and his arrest wq.s made because he was labaring witty some effect to prevent the raising of troops, to encourage desertions from the army, and to leave the rebellion without any adequate nlilitary fofce to sup press it.

I will take Qggs in exchange for goods. or the justice of hfs punishment. Let the reader then apply the charge against him and Mr. Lincoln's explanation of it to the nien who addressed the Central Music hall meeting last Sunday, and d^a^y the inevitable inference of their guilt. Vallandigham did not go so far as Edward Atkin son and others of the Atiti-imper ialistic league of Boston and their imitators in Chicago. He even cjenied that it .was his purpose to prevent the raising of troops or tp encourage desertion from the army, but Mr. Atkinson and his followers, in whose interest the Central Music hall meeting was held, openly declare their purpose to prevent the suppression of the rebellion in the Philippines.

They go futher than Vallandigham and the copperheads of i8(j3 and threaten to appeal to the people. Mr. Vallandigham after his banishment beyond the Union lines ran the blockade, made his way to Canada, and from that point appealed to the people of Ohio to elect him governor. He invited the people of the state to sit judgement on the case be tween him and President Lincoln. There happened then what is happening now.

The answer was conclusive. Mr. Vallandigham retired from politics, and was ever after that regarded with suspicion by his own party and destestation by the great majority of the Ameri can people. If it were possible for Mr. EJdward Atkinson and his abettors and allies in Chicago to appeal to the people today for a vote of confidence, there would be measured out to them a more stinging rebuke then was given to the distinguished copperhead of 1863, for they are more openly, inore boastfully, and more shame lessly guilty than was their pro totype to whom punishment was meted out just thirty-six years ago.
