Mr. Vallandigham--his Views and Purposes.

Chattanooga, May 29.
--Valandigham is still at Shelbyville. He says that, whilst as an exile he is confident of kind and hospitable treatment and consideration from the generous and hospitable people, he desires to avoid all public appearance or demonstration and to live in some retired place as a retired gentleman.

He is fully sensible that, as an alien enemy, his residence in the Confederacy is safety allowed by the generous consent of the Government and people until he can return home safely.

He is confident that his character is well enough known to satisfy all that he is incapable of any word or act, whilst here, or on his return to Ohio, inconsistent with the relations he sustains towards the South during his sojourn amongst us.

The report of Mrs. Vallandigham's insanity is a fabrication. She wrote to her husband a week ago, enjoining him not to deviate from his high path of duty, honor, and patriotism.

Mr. Vallandigham, after the sentence of the Court Martial, was kept in close confinement. Only Rosecrans's staff officers communicated with him. He states that disgust and dissatisfaction prevails in the Northwest, and the people will certainly rise and throw off Lincoln's hated yoke.
