An American Consul ‘"Riled."’
--It seems that the Yankee Vice Consul
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.
