DETROIT.---The Steambarge GARDEN CITY, ran on the middle ground, abreast of Harsens Island, Monday morning, during a demse fog. She appears to be on pretty hard, as one or two passing craft have pulled on her without success. She is now lightering her cargo on the barges, and will possibly succeed in freeing herself without damage.
