Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1824

The following information on arrivals, due to the condition of the papers, has been taken from various sources including the Montreal Gazette MG, Montreal Herald MH, and the Canadian Courant & Montreal Advertiser CC.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible. This can lead to errors in the interpretation of the entry or missed entries. ) Be aware that there may be two or more ships of the same name, from the same, or different ports, during the same year. A few ships also made two trips in 1824.

Montreal, 16th Jan, 1824 H. MOSS
 
New Line of Liverpool Packets :— We understand that a new line of Packets has been established to run from Liverpool to Philadelphia, and sail on the 20th of each month. It consists of the ships Florida, Julius Caesar, Delaware, Colossus and Courier : and is owned we understand, by Messrs. Spackman & Wilson, and John W. Downing, of Philadelphia, and by Mr. Jeremiah Thompson, of this city. Several of these vessels have traded to this port : the business attached to which will now centre in Philadelphia. There is now two lines of packets between Philadelphia and Liverpool. — American paper
 
February 28th - CC     In the papers last week, it was stated that three poor fellows, from the wreck of the Trent, had been brought to our Infirmary, and that a vessel named the Commerce, from Quebec, had passed them on the 23rd of Oct. [1823] without giving them any assistance, although they might have saved all the crew.
    I perceive, by an account from Biddeford, that a vessel named the Commerce, Stone, from Quebec, has been fallen in with, water-logged, and 12 of her crew saved by the Captain of the Bacchus, from Prince Edward's Island. Is it possible this can be the same vessel ? If so, and the Master be of the number saved, what must be his feelings after the inhumane behaviour so justly complained of by Captain Sinclair, of the Trent ? — Liverpool Mercury
April 21st - CC     Our City has been enlivened by the Arrival of a number of Steam Boats since Saturday. The Lady Sherbrooke, New Swiftsure, and Quebec, have entered the harbour from their Winter Quarters, and the Tow Boat Hercules, came up the Current on Sunday, in a very superior style, which indicates that the expectations of our citizens with respect to the future advantages to result from the exertions of this boat, will not be disappointed.
    The Montreal made her first trip on Monday ; and every thing in our Harbour indicates the bustle of Mercantile preparation.
May 5th - CC Arrivals from England.—
Messrs. William Blackwood, Andrew Porteous, and Charles Rodier Esqrs. of this City, arrived here (Montreal) from England by way of New York, on Sunday last, being only 36 days since they left Liverpool.

Although the wind has now blown strong from the East for upwards of 24 hours, there has not been an arrival which indicates that the vessels which are very numerous, must have been detained by the ice.
Launch:— Last Saturday [May 15th], a handsome steam boat the property of J. Molson & Sons was launched near the foot of the Current. She is an Elegant mould and calculated to draw as little water as possible : being intended to ply between Chambly and Quebec. Owing to some accidental oversight in launching, She went off before all was quite prepared—and sled [sic] off one of her ways ; but being under strong impetus she glided along, and plunged upon her destined element without suffering any injury. She is named Chambly. The circumstances not being generally known before hand the crowd of spectators was not so great as the novelty of such a sight usually collects. — Montreal Gazette

Steam Boat Launch:— On Saturday last, a new Steam Boat called the "Chambly," was Launched from Mr. Young's ship Yard, at the foot of the Current St. Marie. In her progress towards the water she met with a slight accident, but fortunately no injury was sustained.
She is a beautiful vessel, and altho her length, and breadth are not inferior to any on the River, it is affirmed that She does not draw more than 22 inches of water.
After the launch she was taken in tow by the New Swiftsure, and safely moored in the harbour of this place.
The "Chambly" belongs to the St. Lawrence Steam Boat Company, and we are informed she is destined to ply between Quebec and the place whence she derives her name.— Canadian Courant

Mr. McKenzie, a passenger, was drowned about the 22nd November while crossing the ice in the basin after sunset. His body was not found. The M. was near both shores of the gulf and saw no ice ; passed several vessels bound up but did not speak them.
The following persons have taken their passage onboard the new ship St. David, Clint, to sail on Thursday next for London, viz - Messrs. Farquhar and son, Mr. Whittington and family, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Childs and Mr. B. Barker.

It will be fresh in the minds of our readers that a Steam Boat the Salaberry, which plied between Chambly, Montreal and Quebec, belonging to Mr. Kuper, was last season unfortunately destroyed by fire, and the proprietor sustained a heavy loss by the accident. To the enterprise of the same active individual, the country is indebted for another handsome boat which is now building at Chambly, and intended to run in the same course. She is to be called Richelieu, and we understand will be launched on Saturday next, at 2 o'clock and in operation soon after.

Saturday May 29th        
 

Quebec May 28th 1824: We have no arrivals from sea since Friday last Not only of the regular traders from London and only those vessels with general cargoes have yet arrived. The merchants have hardly commenced business, the country dealers have been in town and are on their return, and a good deal of disappointment will follow. It is probable these vessels are detained by ice and contrary winds. It is certain that several of those that have arrived saw large quantities of ice and one or two were detained seven or eight days by it ; at the same time the long passages made out to New York, the Liverpool Packet ship of the 1st April being still due, show that the winds have prevaded from the westward. — Canadian Courant

The Steam Boat Malsham made a trip yesterday to the Island of Orleans with passengers to view the large vessel building there. There were about 200 persons on board. The Lauzon and Experiment, Steam Boats, also made several trips. The people every fine Sunday go down in crowds to inspect this immense piece of architecture. — Canadian Courant [note: this refers to the first of the two huge timber droghers, Columbus 3,690 tons and second, Baron of Renfrew 5,294 tons, built by Charles Wood c. 1823-1825.

Montreal: The Tow-Boat Hercules, commanded by Captain George Brush, arrived here on Sunday morning last, bringing with her the ship Margaret, Capt. Fisher, from Liverpool.— They left Quebec on Friday morning, about six o'clock and, after coming about forty miles, an additional resistance was made to their progress, by taking in tow a schooner laden with barley ; nevertheless, all arrived at the foot of the Current St. Mary on Saturday evening, where they anchored, and the next morning the Hercules came up with the ship in fine style, and brought her safely into port. We cannot but admire and applaud that spirit of enterprise evinced by our Merchants in a project which now bids so fair to answer all that could have been originally anticipated. Vessels with their cargoes, may, with perfect facility, be brought by the Hercules from Quebec to Montreal in forty-eight hours, a distance of 180 miles, and against a strong current.
The Hercules is a beautiful modeled vessel and was built by Mr. Alexander Young of this city : but what mostly excites the astonishment of the curious is, the magnitude, power and simplicity of her engine, which was projected, built and set up here, by Mr. John D. Ward. It is, probably, the most powerful single engine that was ever applied for the propelling of any vessel in the world ; and its performance will no doubt, clearly manifest to the public, that the builder, as a man of science in his profession, is justly entitled to their patronage and support.


We this day publish an account of one of the most melancholy and distressing accidents which we recollect to have ever heard ; we allude to the bursting boiler of the Steam Boat Ætna, near New York, by which many valuable lives were lost, and others so dreadfully injured as to render their future existence painful to themselves, and distressing to their friends. We are glad that none of the engines belonging to the Boats in our river are made on the same principle which caused the deplorable catastrophy here alluded to.

After entering the River, she was compelled, from the force of contrary winds, to anchor every tide without being able to make much way.

Steam Boat Launch: The Steam Boat Richelieu was launched at Chambly on Saturday last, she went off in a style of superior elegance, in presence of a numerous concourse of Spectators. Some days previous to this event Mr. Kuper had notices circulated through the Country, the habitants supposed by this that he required their aid to shove the Boat into the water, and flocked to the place in crowds for that purpose ; but their astonishment could not be described, when they saw the ponderous Boat glide into her destined Element without any need of assistance.
The following Gentlemen, residing in Canada, arrived from Europe during the present week, by way of New York, viz :— Messrs. Jos. Shuter, Josa. Stansfield, Jas. Stansfield, B. Ansell, P. McGill, J.L. Crawford, Wm. Logan and Wm. Peddie of Montreal ; and Mr. Finlay of Quebec. These Gentlemen arrived at New York in the John Wells, and the Pacific ; we understand they had a very unpleasant and tedious passage. The Papers brought by the Pacific, have not yet been received here, but we suppose tomorrows Mail will furnish us with more recent English intelligence than any which we have been able to Communicate.
The unprecedented lateness of European arrivals this season, has greatly retarded the commercial transactions of the provinces, and placed the country merchants in rather unpleasant circumstances, as they have been much disappointed in not receiving at an earlier period their summer supply of Goods. We hope however that a few days will remedy this evil and that the vessels which have sailed for Quebec will all arrive safe and thereby put an end to the unpleasant apprehensions which have been entertained relative to their safety. . . .

Quebec June 1st:
A young man named Phillippe Godin, was drowned when going on board the Swiftsure on Thursday evening, by falling from the planks that led to the boat. The number of persons passing on these planks is immense and the numerous accidents in the recollection of everybody. Two narrow planks are not sufficient, and legislative regulations, if they do not already exist, ought to be passed making it obligatory to have them of certain width with proper railings.

The Athol has £197,000 cy in specie, sailed on the 12th instant, had contrary winds, and was nine days in the River.

The Steam Boat Laprairie made a trip rounf the Island of Orleans yesterday : the sail is a beautiful one, and the distance about 60 miles. There were upwards of 100 passengers.

A new Ferry-boat between this City and Pointe Levy, to be moved by horses, was launched this morning at Pointe Levy.


The following particulars of the loss of the Scotia, were given by the Mate of that vessel:—
The Scotia, Captain Isaac Davis sailed from the Bay of Honduras, on the 1st of April, in company with two other vessels, (the Zephyr and the Glutton,) which she parted with on the 8th ; on the 29th a heavy sea fell on board the Scotia, carried away her cut water and stem, and rendered her a complete wreck ; all hands were immediately employed at the pumps, but their efforts were soon found to be unavailing as she soon became water logged and unmanageable. In order to avoid the fury of the waves, which now made a fair breach over the decks, the Captain, his wife and the crew, in all seventeen, were obliged to seek for shelter on the tops, into which they succeeded in carrying a quantity of provisions ; here they had not remained long when, the storm increasing, the vessel upset, precipitating all into the sea ; the Captain and his wife were washed from their hold and lost, the remainder, by great exertion, made their way to the hull which shortly after righted from the parting of the masts, when they gained the quarter-deck, where they remained, enduring every hardship to which their melancholy situation exposed them, for five days ; during this time their number was reduced to ten, some were washed overboard and others died through their their sufferings. On the 3rd of May the wreck was fallen in with the Saguenay ; every exertion was used by the master and crew of this vessel to relieve them from their perilous state, but owing to the severity of the weather and the imminent danger of their own vessel's falling on board the wreck, they could only succeed in rescuing 4, the mate and three of the hands. These men speak in the strongest terms of the kind attention and gentlemanly conduct they experienced from Captain Hall. When the Saguenay parted from the wreck only two men remained.
 

Quebec May 26th:
Unfortunate Occurrence: We regret to learn that the mate and a seaman belonging to the Quebec Packet, Captain Anderson, from Aberdeen, were drowned yesterday at the Cross, where the vessel is now loading. Our informant states, that the seaman, while employed in painting the vessel, lost his balance, and fell from the scaffold ; the mate, an excellent swimmer, seeing him, jumped overboard to his assistance, when the former seizing him by the leg, both sank, and were drowned.

Quebec June 5th:
The bodies of the Mate and Sailor belonging to the Quebec Packet, whose melancholy fate we announced a short time back, were found yesterday in the river below the current. The Sailor had his Arms firmly grasped round the shoulders of the Mate, and it was with difficulty they could separate them after the bodies were brought to shore.

  Quebec June [9th]:
One hundred sail of square rigged vessels have arrived in the Port within the last forty-eight hours. Those with cargoes and that were deeply laden have generally sustained losses in their bulwarks, Spars, Sails and Boats, and some of them had their decks completely swept. Several of the vessels that arrived had not a boat to land with. The most violent gales prevailed from the 23rd April to 1st May, and during that period some vessels were driven back about 300 miles, and had they been within a less distance of the European cost [sic] must inevitably have been lost. We have accounts of the loss of four vessels bound to this port, besides three bound to the lower ports.
Casualty:— A private in Captain Staunton's Company of the 37th, named McArtlry, was drowned by falling from the Lady Sherbrooke after having embarked on Tuesday evening. He had lain down to sleep, near one side of the boat. He leaves a wife and two children.

For the last two days past, the heat of the weather has been very oppressive.
Yesterday's Farenheit's Thermometer stood at 92 in the shade.

  Shipping Intelligence
 

Remarks made by Captain Turner, of the Queen, on passing the wreck of the ship Dowson, of Aberdeen, on the 12th may, in lat. 46 15, long. 40 26 :—

This ship appeared to be between 350 and 400 tons burthen : her sides painted yellow with a black streak at the top and green on deck, the bottom below light water mark appeared reddish ; she had no boats on deck or attached to her, but had davits on the starboard quarter for one ; a chain cable was bent to the larboard anchor, and all her hatchways were standing open ; the foremast gone about 10 or 12 feet above the deck, the bowsprit standing, but the jib-boom gone at the cap ; no mizen topsail yard nor main yard — mizzenmast and topmast entire ; a chock for a mizen top-gallant-mast and a mizzen topsail stowed, but the clews hanging down and ragged ; a small piece of ragged red bunting in the stabbard mizzen shrouds, her head bore to the S.E. She appeared to me to have canted her ballast, and to have lost her masts on the larboard tack. The starboard fore-rigging was hanging over the side.

    Bark Globe, Brydon, reports the brig Thompson, of Shields, is dismasted. Brig John put back damaged, and Harriet, of London, for Quebec, abandoned, crew saved.
    Bark Amity, Arrowsmith, has on board four of the crew of the brig Fredericton, Captain Barrett, from Shoreham, to Miramichi, foundered at sea, all saved.
    Bark Francis & Harriet, Dodds, has on board five of the crew of the Hyperion, of Shields, which vessel also foundered at sea ; all hands saved.
    Horatio, Sparks, took on board the whole of the crew, with the exception of one man drowned, of the brig Experiment, of Liverpool, for Richibuctou, she being dismasted, and half full of water.
    Schooner Nancy, Currie, has brought up part of the cargo of Gilbert Salton, from Bermuda, for Quebec, lost on the coast of Nova Scotia. Crew saved.
    Brig Thetis, Robinson, has on board the crew of the brig Union, of London, bound to Bedec, Prince Edward's Island, abandoned in long. 34 W.
    Brig Charlotte, Shearer, has on board the Captain and six of the crew, of the brig Liberality, of Whitby, bound to St. John, N.B., abandoned on the 15th May, in longitude 28.
    Brig William, Short, took on board eight of the crew of the brig Hope, of Tinmouth, bound to St. John's, Newfoundland, which foundered in long. 30, W. all saved.
    Brig Erato, Blair, Mrs. Blair died on the 2nd May, and one man was lost overboard.
    Brig Eleanor, Potts, had a boy washed overboard.
    Bark Borleigh, Chancellor, has on board two seamen of the brig Margery, from London, bound to Montreal, which vessel sunk on the 10th May.
    Bark Venus, Green, has been on shore at Madame Island, and has received damage.
    Ship Ceres, has been on shore near the Pillars, and has also sustained damage.
    Brig Endeavour has been on shore near Mille Vaches, and damaged.
    Brig Ajax, Armstrong, lost her fore topmast.
    Quebec Packet—Captain Bell for a new ship. Mr. Pownall [?] and Mr. Adam came as passengers in this vessel.
    Bark Lady Juliana—This vessel brought out a detachment of 29 men, women and children of the Royal Artillery.

We are concerned to state the melancholy loss of the bark Eliza, which sailed from this Port in November last ; she was wrecked in the night of the 24th of that month on the Magdalen shore ; her bottom came out almost immediately after she struck. The crew were obliged to remain by the wreck until 8 o'clock in the morning, when they all succeeded in getting on shore, and made their way to a haystack, where they laid down, but in such a state of exhaustion, that nine poor fellows out of the crew died by their sufferings through the cold and hunger which they had experienced. The remainder were discovered the following morning in the most deplorable state, waiting as it were, for their turns for eternity. The Captain and survivors suffered very much from frozen feet, but had recovered with the exception of two, one of whom has entirely lost the use of them. The Captain is expected here shortly.

    Brig Cyrus, Storment, in lat. 47, 31. long. 27, 30 W., spoke the brig Argo of Workington, from Montego Bay, for Liverpool, all well.
    Brig (bark?) Spring, Snowden, boarded in lat. 51,29 long. 28,12 W., a brig which he supposed to be the Zodiac, formerly of Shields, abandoned, totally dismasted, and rudder unshipped, her roundhouse complete — she looked well, but was full of water.
    Lightning fell on board of the Freedom, on the 8th of May, and wounded the Captain, three seamen and one boy, severely.
    The Bolden has some goods on board, saved from the brig Cumberland.
    The Hope spoke, on the 7th of May, in long. 20 W., the brig Martha, returning to Poole, very leaky, out 35 days ; and on the 23rd spoke the brig Urania, of Shields, for Miramichi, out 53 days, all well. On the 6th May in long. 28 W., fell in with the brig Aurora, from London, for Halifax with a general cargo ; she was totally dismasted, and had lost the mate and four of her crew—remained by her 24 hours, and assisted in rigging jury masts.
    The Norfolk remained by the brig Eagle, of Shields, 6 days, she being in a disabled state and very leaky.— On the 29th of May, she bore up apparently with the intention of running on shore, or preceeding to Gaspé. May 2nd fell in with the ship Harriet, on her beam ends and no person on board.
    The British Queen, on the 8th May, on long. 40 W., fell in with the ship Dowson, of Aberdeen, bound to Saint John, New-Brunswick, and took out the master, and all hands, except the mate, who was washed overboard—the ship then in a sinking state.
    Brig Beaver boarded, on the 6th of May, in long. 35 W., the brig Henry, of London, in ballast, with about two feet of water in her hold, totally dismasted, rudder gone, and no person on board.
    The brig William McGillivray, on the 27th of April, in long. 31, was struck by a heavy sea, which carried away her bowsprit ; shortly after the foremast went by the board, and carried away the main top-mast.
    Brig George passed the brig Fame, of Sunderland, totally dismasted—could render her no assistance.
    The Eagle :— This vessel is so much damaged that she is literally kept together with chains. Four of her deck and two of her hold beams are broken, and she is very leaky. The Captain of the Eagle was on board the Nancy, of Maryport, where he saw the Captain and crew of the brig Matthew and Thomas, of Shields, which vessel was abandoned at sea.
    Captain Palmer, of the Aid, spoke the Lydia, of Miramichi, in distress, in lat. 44, 30 long. 36, having been struck by lightning in a squall on the 1st of May and received considerable damage, which obliged her to return to England.
