Mr. Vallandigham.

We agree with several of our contemporaries that if Lincoln has decided in reality to commute the sentence of Mr. Vallandigham to banishment to the Southern Confederacy, that he should not be permitted to remain here. The vulgar tyrant of Washington should not be allowed to take such a liberty — to establish a penal colony within our boundary. If, as the Enquirer suggests, Lincoln simply banishes him from Yankeedom and he selects the Southern Confederacy as a place of refuge, the rights of hospitality of course cannot be denied him, and

he would be receive with the consideration due to a very distinguished and consistent statesman, who has marked boldness and firmness in criticizing and reproving the usurpations and outrages of the Lincoln Government.
