The propellor Myles started on Saturday night for Fort William, light. She had proceeded as far as the gap, when she encountered such a terrific wind that it forced her to return to Kingston harbor. She laid at Craig's wharf all day Sunday, Sunday night and part of Monday. She expected to make another start today.
