p.2 The Late Gale - On Monday night last, it came on to blow strongly from the westward, and the storm continued until Thursday morning. During this time, all communication between Toronto and Kingston, was stopped, and the whole of the British steamboats were blown into Kingston harbour, where they remained until the gale abated. When the William IV left for Toronto, she had three mails on board, and she is expected back some time today, with four mails. This is the first interruption of the new method of mail communication has met with since its establishment. We have not heard of any accident having happened.
