een restored to his rank. Cincinnati, May 15.--Judge Leavitt renders the decision in the Vallandigham habeas corpus case to-morrow. It is understood that Gen. Burnside will announce the disposition to be made of Vallandigham as soon as the Judge's decision is made known. The Herald says two or three wretched papers at Washington, feeding on Government crib, maintain that Burnside has done better in the capture of Vallandigham in the town of Dayton, Ohio, than if he had succeeded in capturing Fredericksburg and Gen. Lee. The Star and Chronicle seem to be ignorant that he has knocked his head against a thicker wall and precipitated himself into a more dangerous collision. Everywhere public opinion, without distinction of party, is pronouncing against Burnside's course. The united press of the Empire City, with the exception of the Times, are of more value than the tune played to order by the two miserable organ grinders at Washington. The Herald says the "loyal leag
What will they do? Vallandigham has been by the most summary military process torn from his house at the dead of night, and, upon the testimony of military spies, who, disguised as citizens, went to a public meeting to hear and accuse him, convicted and sentenced under Burnside's death order. Civil process was treated with contempt, and all the constitutional protection thrown around the citizen nullified by the military commander of the district.

Men with families were allowed to take one thousand dollars; those without families, two hundred dollars; the balance of their property to be taken by the Government. Memphis dates of the 15th state that Adjutant General Thomas had formed ten full regiments of "contrabands," and expects many more. Burnside's letter to the Circuit Court of Ohio, relative to Vallandigham, says: "If I were to find a man from the enemy distributing the speeches of their public men, tending to destroy the confidence of the army, I would have him tried and hung. Why should the speeches of those, in our midst be allowed?--He should be treated likewise. Every power I possess on earth from the Giver above will be exerted, at all times, occasions, or places, while I am in command, to sustain the character of the Gove
