A free country.

The tyran's at Washington are not satisfied with opening and detaining letters of United States citizens, but have gone so far as to waylay and keep back letters of British subjects written to England when any sentiment in favor of the South has been expressed. Of this we are assured by a British subject who, for safety, has enclosed letters to Northern friends to be mailed to England, none of which have ever come to hand. This was even before the postal arrangements of 1st June. How long will England tolerate this?
