Baltimore and Vallandigham.

Nothing could be well more sycophantic and slavish than the endorsement by the Baltimore City Council of the despotic proceedings of Lincoln against Vallandigham. But it ought to be remembered that that Council is now composed of Yankees, elected by a Yankee vote, the former Council of Baltimore having long ago resigned, and their places been supplied by supple tools of the Washington tyrant. We cannot expect any voice to proceed from Baltimore in favor of freedom or justice, for her true men have all the bayonet at their throats, and none are permitted to use their tongues who will not use them in be slavering with fulsome adulation a despicable despot.
