THE ELLSWORTH AFLOAT. - Capt. Williams and E.A. Mattoon arrived this morning and report that the steam barge Ellsworth, which was ashore at Wilson, floated yesterday morning about 11 o'clock. A tug was despatched from the canal to the assistance of the craft, and was backing in to give her a line when the water in the lake suddenly rose and floated her off. the causes of the accident were the lowness of the water in the lake and the heavy sea rolling at the time. The Ellsworth in coming out of Wilson grounded, thus losing steerage way, and was struck by a succession of waves and driven onto the beach. She is now on her way to this port.
