Tho trouble arose from the alleged condi

a general cargo. The men who brought
her here, four negro sailors from tho West
Indies, say she is not seaworthy, and they
demanded a hearing before the British
consul. Her captain, Cronin, and mate
abandoned hor when she cast anchor off
Stapleton, and were succeeded Tuesday by
Edwards as captain, and a new mate.
Tho crew meantime, according to their
statements to local boatman who went
out to the vessel, were kept prisoners.
Yesterday the tug Guiding Star wont
alongside the brig with the 'longshore

holBt anchor and make roady to sail. They
refused to move, reiterating their demand
that they be put ashore with their dun

ordered the 'longshoremen toproceod with
tho work. They raised the anchor, the
tug took the brig in tow and proceeded
out to soa, the mutineers meanwhile sit
