THE GALE AT KINGSTON
Kingston, Dec. 31. -- A terrific gale is blowing here today. About nine o'clock the steamer D.D. CALVIN, lying at Garden Island, dragged her anchors and drifted before the wind, going down the river. The steamer CHIEFTAIN, which came to Kingston, was summoned to go in pursuit, but the storm prevented her venturing out for an hour. The CALVIN drifted into Brown's Bay, below Brophy's Point, where she grounded. As soon as the wind abates she will be pulled off.
