Freedom of Speech

--Treason in New York. The following delectable paragraph we copy from the New York Times, says the Louisville Courier, of the 13th. The Irrepressible are fast extending their lines, and it will soon be treason in Louisville for any one to speak a little disrespectfully of King Lincoln & Co. His organs here now want to suppress the boys who occasionally shout, ‘"Hurrah for Jeff. Davis."’

Henry V. Vultee, a lawyer, residing at No. 132 Monroe street, was brought before Justice Brennan yesterday, charged with creating a disturbance in the streets of the Seventh Ward, by giving free expression to treasonable sentiments. The complainant, Frederick A. Potter, an officer of police; testified that the accused was constantly in the habit of uttering scurrilous language against the President and the Government of the United States.
