      The schooner NEW LONDON, with her cargo of oil, is now at the Ohio Elevator docks. She is experiencing some difficulty in shipping a crew for an ocean voyage, as she is some twenty-two years old and not considered very staunch. Her first crew deserted, and it is said she is now owing some debts and trouble with clamorous creditors.
