The Escaped Vessels Secured. - The steam tugs Page and Reed left here early yesterday morning, and found the six vessels that were carried out of the harbor Sunday morning, at Port Ontario. They were all safe and uninjured except the Belle Adkins, which had rolled out her masts, had all her upper works carried away, and was in a leaking condition.

The Thos. Kingsford dragged her anchor all the way. The men who went in pursuit with boats were all on board the latter vessel safe. The tugs started with five of the vessels in tow yesterday afternoon and will be safe in port this morning. The Virginia is the only vessel left, and she lay in safety some four miles from the others.
