Port Stanley, Oct. 30th - A heavy south-west gale set in here early this morning, which caused so much sea that two coal-laden vessels, bound for this port, could not make the harbor and came to anchor. One of them, supposed to be the Mineral State, at once set a flag of distress. No assistance could be rendered from shore and at eleven o'clock either slipped her anchor or her chains broke, and she commenced drifting ashore. She is now on the beach about one mile east of the harbor with the crew still on board. An attempt will be made to rescue the crew as soon as the weather permits. The other vessel at anchor is supposed to be the Rounds, and, so far, she is making good weather, and no distress signals are flying.
