Demand for the Release of Hon. Clement L. Vallandigham.

CINCINNATI, May 23, 1863.

The following petition is circulating in Columbus and other parts of the State of Ohio: -

The undersigned, citizens of Franklin county, respectfully represent that the most scared right of the citizen, as guaranteed by the constitution of our fathers, has been violated in the arbitrary arrest, illegal trial, and inhuman imprisonment of Hon. Clement L. Vallandigham. We therefore demand of the President of the United States his immediate and unconditional release.

General Burnside is known to have said that he had not asked for any instructions since his arrival here; that he had received none since he left Washington, and that the arrest and trial of Mr. Vallandigham was upon his own responsibility.

After the arrest of Mr. Vallandigham President Lincoln telegraphed to General Burnside that he would sustain him in his efforts to support the government.
