Very interesting.

--The Richmond correspondent of the Columbia Guardian furnishes the following incident of the return of the late United States Consul to Liverpool:

Rev. Tucker arrived in town day before yesterday direct from Paris via London and Liverpool. He came to Canada and by way of Detroit and Indianapolis, through Kentucky and Tennessee, meeting with some droll adventures on route. Assuming another name, he had no sooner landed in Quebec than he stumbled upon old Giddings, to whom he was perfectly well known in Washington. ‘"How d'ye do, Mr. Tucker,"’ said the old wretch. ‘"Oh — ah," ’ said Rev.," staring him directly in the face, and speaking in a broad English drawl, ‘"Weally, my dear sir, you mistake the individually."’ ‘"I beg pardon, "’ said Giddings, whereupon Rev. walked off and saw no more of the Consul to Canada. Had he betrayed his identity by a moment's forgetfulness, Giddings would have had him arrested at Detroit.
