VESSEL CAPSIZED.---The officers of the steamer DE WITT CLINTON, inform us, that on Saturday morning they fell in with a vessel capsized off Vermillion. They lowered a boat and proceeded in the direction of the vessel, but could not make her out. She was painted white with black stripes. Her small boat was gone, which was, probably, taken by the crew. The work "Buffalo" was made out on her stern.
