The Old New Orleans

We have already alluded to the fact that the secretary of the navy is about to order the sale of the old line-of-battle ship New Orleans, which has so long remained upon the stocks at Sackets Harbor. The official description is as follows.

New Orleans, displacement 4,200 tons. An old line-of-battle ship on the stocks at Sackets Harbor, N.Y. Commenced in the latter part of December, 1814. Work was pushed forward rapidly for six weeks and then stopped entirely, and never resumed. She is rapidly rotting away and falling to pieces; an object of curiosity to visitors each summer, but a source of danger because of the falling pieces.
