--The Richmond correspondent of the Columbia Guardian
furnishes the following incident of the return of the late United States Consul to Liverpool
arrived in town day before yesterday direct from Paris
He came to Canada
and by way of Detroit
, through Kentucky
, 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
Had he betrayed his identity by a moment's forgetfulness, Giddings
would have had him arrested at Detroit
