The Wrecks. - The schooner Belle Adkins which grounded between the piers while being towed into the harbor Monday night, was again driven out in the lake, by the gale and heavy sea on Tuesday. She now lies on the beach a short distance below the east pier, and will probably prove a total loss, with the exception of a portion of the rigging, which may be recovered in a damaged state.

The Adkins was a large new vessel, built last season. The Wide Awake also went ashore in the same vicinity, and laying on her beams and must have went to pieces in the gale on Tuesday night. She was a large first class vessel and nearly new. Nothing has reached us in regard to the Virginia since the gale. She lay close on to the shore near Port Ontario, and has probably gone to pieces. All three vessels were well insured and the loss to the owners will be comparatively small.
