This gentleman is the only public man we have yet heard of in the free States who remains true to his professions before the Proclamation.
He deserves immortal honor.
He is the one righteous man in the Heaven-forsaken cities of our Western plains.
He stands where he has ever stood, and bids the mob defiance.
As mobs are always cowardly, they are glad to leave Mr. Vallandingham ‘"alone in his glory."’
