THE MIZTEC AND GALATEA.

MINERVILLE, May 1.--The barges Miztec and Galatea, consorts of the steam barge Aztec, which were driven ashore here yesterday afternoon, are lying easy on a sandy bottom and can be cleared without much trouble if taken off before a sandbar forms outside of them. They lie in about 5 1/2 feet of water on the outside and 3 1/2 on the shore side, and in a somewhat sheltered position. The Miztec was scuttled to prevent her drifting astern and colliding with the Galatea. The barges have sustained no serious damage and are not leaking. The Aztec, which ran up the lake last night, after being released, brought up at Milwaukee and evidently sustained only nominal damages, as she will be here in the morning, and with the aid of several local tugs will endeavour to release the Miztec, while the tug Monarch at Escanaba has been wired to assist the Galatea. Wind tonight southeast, light with a little southeast.
