An American Consul ‘"Riled."’

--It seems that the Yankee Vice Consul at Havana puts on airs about the Confederates in that port.-- A correspondent says:

‘ There will be no more attacks upon the Confederate flag in these waters by the braves of the Niagara or the Consul General and his corps, which was a gratuitous assumption of police and administrative jurisdiction.-- Capt. Laurent hoisted the flag upon the Brig A. A. Chanman as a private signal the other day, is consequence of which Mr. Savage, the Spanish-American Vine Consul, sent the register of the vessel in Washington, making himself a regular Lincoln judge, jury and executioner — assuming the responsibility.--Ordering the captain before him, he says: ‘"Sir. you will henceforth not ceins to this consulate for favor or protection. I have sent your register to Washington and put your vessel in the hands of the Spanish authorities."’ Response--‘"I ask no favors — I have had no protection. My vessel is, at any rate, I am happy to learn, in the charge of gentlemen, and men who are honest."’ ‘"No impudence, sir; I speak to you officially."’--‘"That is rich! as if anybody could be impudent to you. Good morning, Thomas Savage, Esquire."’ And so they parted.
