Resisting a United States Consul.
--The United States Consul at Surinam, South America
, is having difficulty with the Government
It seems that an affray took place among the crew on board an American vessel lying in that port, by which one of them got hurt with a knife.
Our Consul arranged the affair, and concluded to send one of the men to the United States
He had him imprisoned until the vessel was ready for sea; but when he wished to place him on board of her, the authorities refused to give him up, claiming the exclusive right to try him in their courts.
The vessel was detained two days, and finally went off without him. We understand that our Consul has sent off to St. Thomas
for a man-of-war, and has forwarded dispatches to Washington
regarding the affair.--New York Post.
