STEAM BOAT LONDON. -- We understand that the steamer LONDON encountered the gale of Saturday night, and was driven hard towards the lee shore at a perilous point - the name of which we have forgotten. Capt. Willoughby, however, managed admirably, and got her off, though he was compelled to through overboard 350 barrels of flour, composing the deck load.
