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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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.

June 10— schooner Mary Catherine, Bourier, (for) Esquimaux Bay
June 11— ship Sir William Hensley, Smith, (for) London

    The brig Governor, of Shields, is on shore on White Island Shoal, mainmast gone.
    The ship Friends, on the 4th May, in long. 30 W., fell in with the bark Arethusa, of Shields, under jury masts, apparently all well.


By the arrival, on Thursday morning last, of a sloop and a schooner from Miramichi, with Captain Baird, passengers and crew of the ship Camillus, the public have been relieved from the anxiety felt for their safety, by the previous arrival of different vessels which had passed the Camillus at sea, abandoned. Among the passengers are Mr. Smillie, Goldsmith, of this City, Captain White, and Mrs. Baird. The Camillus sailed from Liverpool on the 4th April, and continued her passage, with variable weather, to the 23rd, when it increased to a tremendous gale, which continued with little abatement to the 28th, during which time she shipped a sea that washed overboard three of the crew, sprung the bowsprit and carried away the fore yard, all the bulwarks and part of the round house. The vessel had laboured and was so much strained that she leaked rapidly ; the pumps were manned, but the rolling of the vessel and the water in the hold washed the ballast into them, and they soon choked ; recourse was then had to buckets which were used, in baling her, for thirty-six hours and until they were completely broken to pieces ; finding their exertions to keep her free unavailing, there being now twelve feet of water in the hold, it was determined to abandon the vessel the following day. Accordingly, on the morning of the 29th the Long Boat was hoisted out, when Captain Baird, his passengers and crew, in all twenty-three souls, after using all possible precautions for securing themselves from the severity of the weather, committed themselves to the mercy of the waves ; in this state they remained until the morning of the 1st May, the weather having fortunately proved the most moderate they had experienced during their voyage ; a sail was now discovered at some distance, which they made sail for ; she proved to be the Columbus, Bizzet, bound to Miramichi, who took them all on board. On the 3rd of May the Columbus fell in with the ship Ross, of North Shields, for the same place and put on board 7 of the hands, the next day placed two more on board a vessel going to Pictou, and carried the remainder to Miramichi. Some unpleasant disagreement is said to exist between Captain Baird &c. and Captain Bizzet, regarding the treatment which they received on board his ship, which will be published shortly. The Camillus was owned by John Jones junior, Esquire.

    The crews of several other vessels, abandoned during the late gales, had arrived at Miramichi.
    The brig Lord Wellington from Liverpool, spoke in lat. 48 long. 15, the brig Hannah, Moore, of and from Aberdeen, for Halifax, returning with loss of boats and bulwarks, being unfit to proceed on her voyage ; also the Wilberforce, off Cape Race, 1st June, from Miramichi, bound for Liverpool.
Communication:
    The brig Endeavour, of South Shields, from London, which was on shore at Mille Vaches has received no damage, as stated in the Supplement of the 5th instant ; a survey having been held on her on the 10th.


Montreal:
We regret to state that the Steam Tow Boat Hercules, in her last trip from Quebec, had a part of her machinery so much injured as to render her incapable of reaching this City. We understand that the injury can be easily repaired, and that she will be shortly fit to perform her proposed regular trips with success.

 

Important to Parents

It was lately ruled in the Court of King's Bench, in a case "Wilken v Law" that the entry of the birth, in a baptismal register, is not evidence to prove the age of the party. It is nothing more than something told to the clergyman at the time of christening, concerning which he has not power by law to make an entry in the register. In this case the defendant was christened in 1807, but the entry stated that he was born in 1799. This verdict should be a caution to parents to comply with the Rubrie, in not deferring the baptism of their children longer than the first or second Sunday after their birth, as the most important questions in our courts of justice often turn against them.

Quebec, June 14
Loss of the Dowson, Jamieson, from Aberdeen, bound to St, John, N.B.

The ship Dowson sailed from Aberdeen on the 13th of April and experienced moderate weather to the 19th, when strong gales commenced, which pretty generally prevailed, interrupted once or twice by perfect calms, to the 3rd of May. During this period some sails were split, but no damage was sustained. On the 3rd there were tremendous squalls, and about this time the ballast which had been wet by leakage choked the pumps, which were frequently hoisted up and arranged, but without any good effect, as the ballast was completely soaked. On the 8th, the vessel while lying too during a hurricane, broached to the wind and split the fore-topsail ; the water in the hold had accumulated and the pumps were entirely useless, all hands were set to bail with buckets, but the sea broke over the ship, it became necessary to lash the men, and more water went down by the hatchways than was thrown out. The ship was soon after nearly thrown on her broad-side by the sea, and the whole of the ballast suddenly shifting to the lee, the vessel fell over on her beam ends ; The Captain was at the same time precipitated into the hold, and picked up severely injured and insensible, having not been able to come upon deck afterwards, except to get on board the vessel which rescued him. In this hopeless condition, the mate, on whom the command devolved, ordered the fore topmast to be cut away which fell over, carrying with it the main topmast, and the vessel righted. A brig was then in sight, but a signal of distress was no sooner hoisted than it was torn away by the force of the wind ; she, however, observed the condition of the Dawson [sic], and early on the morning of the 9th, was seen under her lee, proving to be the British Queen, of South Shields, Captain Stephenson. In the attempts to get on board of the brig, the sea was so high, that the only three boats were destroyed, the mate drowned, and the property in them lost—with the aid of the boats, however, all had abandoned the Dowson, except the Captain and five of the crew, when night came on ; no further attempt could be made, and the night was passed in this condition of distress and painful suspense. The wind fell a little during the night, and the B. Queen had promised to lie by ; early next morning she was seen steering a contrary course in search of the wreck, and was attracted by signals ; the sea, on her coming near, permitted the boat to be used and succeeded in rescuing from their certain and speedy death six fellow-beings, whose lives with those of the others of the crew are due to the humanity and unremitted attention of Captain Stephenson. Captain Jamieson closes his Log Book with the following words :
"Here I have lost a fine ship, which threatened to be a coffin for her whole crew, with the loss of every earthly thing, but as I stand, without a second shirt, or a hat for my head ; yet I have still to thank the Supreme Being, that although he has permitted me to fall under this dreadful calamity, he has still mitigated my affliction, by ordaining that it should be into the hands of humanity."
And in effect says, by Captain Stephenson we have been treated as brothers, and we wish this publickly to record it.— Gazette

The St. Lawrence takes home about fifty men belonging to different regiments stationed in this country.

The regular trading ship General Wolfe sailed on Tuesday evening for Bristol. The following passengers were on board, John Davids Esquire, and family, Miss Racey, Mr. Shortis, and Mr. Dalton.

Passengers in the Margaret, Fisher, sailed for Liverpool, 13th instant, Mr., Mrs.& Miss Try, Mr. and two Misses Blair, Lieutenant Lang, Mr. Foster and Master Bardwine.


Among the list of arrivals at this port, we find the William McGillivray, Captain Stoddard, a gentleman well known here as many years the conductor of our old summer visitor the Ewretta. The William McGillivray along with other vessels has felt the effects of the disasterous weather—she was dismasted—almost her whole rigging gone. Captain S. was met at sea by another vessel, whose Captain urged him to abandon his ship. But with all the fortitude of a British Tar, and the prudence of an experienced seaman, Captain S. determined not to "give up the ship." He contrived out of one of his top-masts to rig a jury-mast, and with all the canvas it could carry dexterously, brought his vessel into this harbour her port of destination, while many others would have either abandoned her or run for the nearest port. His conduct merits the warmest encomiums of his owners and consignors—and we should hope would not go unnoticed by the underwriters. — Gazette

The Captain, crew and one passenger, after having been tossed about in the tempestuous ocean for 28 hours, in the two small boats, (the long boat having been stove in launching) were picked up and landed at the Island of Tiree.

    The Hercules, Steam Tow boat, arrived here from Montreal on Thursday last with three large vessels deeply laden [Horatio, Lady Gordon & a schooner] and left this part for Montreal yesterday evening, having three brigs and a schooner in tow. She got under way about the turn of the tide, and moved forward with these vessels, which were secured [one on each side and two to her stern], in fine style, affording a pleasing sight to a considerable number of persons collected on the wharves to witness her departure. . . . with this cluster of masts around her, against an ebb-tide at the rate of about four miles per hour. This experiment, which has now, it may be said, succeeded, and has alrady proved adventageous, must introduce in the navigation of the River some great change.— . . & Neilsons Gazette
    The wind has blown from the westward for some days past, and given an opportunity to the vessels which have cleared out to take their departure.

Kingston, June 29
Melancholy Occurence.— Early on Saturday last Mr. Elijah Lyons was unfortunately shot by Mr. John Lowe, a junior gentleman in the employ of C.A. Hagerman Esq. Collector of Customs at this port. The circumstances attending this unhappy affair are briefly as follows.— At about half past one o'clock in the morning, Mr. Hagerman and two of his students, Lowe and Kirkpatrick, went out in search of Smugglers, of whose approach, it appears, information had been previously given. In a short time Mr. Lowe, who had parted from his companions, encountered Lyons, while in the act of carrying a Chest of Tea from the river side, and commanded him, in the King's name, to surrender it. The latter refused, and immediately struck Lowe in the face. A scuffle ensued. in the course of which a Pistol was discharged, and the ball passed thro' Lyons' body, a little above the heart. Every attention has been paid to the unfortunate sufferer, who now lies in a dangerous state, but some hopes are entertained of his recovery.— U.C. Herald

Quebec, July 5
About one hundred men of the 60th Rifle Regiment forming part of the first Division who go home, embarked on Friday morning on board the Transport Cato, and sailed yesterday. Many foreigners have been discharged here and will remain in this country.


Statement of the number of vessels and their total of tonnage, which have arrived since the opening of the navigation season, and of those at the same period of last year.
July 5th 1824 — 330 vessels — Tonnage, 82,357
July 5th 1823 — 216 vessels — Tonnage, 51,699
The difference, which is in favour of the present season amounts to 114 vessels and 30,658 tons. The vessels employed in the trade this season, are generally of greater burthen than those used in the last, which accounts for the already large amount of tonnage in its favour.

Passengers in the Rebecca, sailed on Thursday last, Mr. William Torrance and family, Mr. & Miss Lilly, Miss Freland, Mr. Westbrooke and Mr. Chillas.

The Earl Moira was loading at Liverpool for Quebec on the 24th May. The Bartley, Clark, and Lady Hood, McKenzie, for Quebec ; were ready for sea on the 25th May.
Falmouth, May 19.— Wind N.W.— Arrived, the John and Robert from Bristol for Montreal, out six weeks, has been as far west as long. 30, and was dismasted on the 28th ult.


The new Steam Boat Chambly, lately built by Mr. Molson, took a trip down the River a few days ago, for the purpose of exercising her engine, and ascertaining its powers. She returned to this place with the most perfect ease, and we understand that the proprietor's are fully satisfied with her performances in the element for which she was originally designed.
As this Boat draws so little water, we think she might be profitably employed in plying between this City and LaPrairie during the Race week in September next, as the sport which is anticipated at the latter place from the number, and excellence of the Horses that are matched, will draw immense crowds from Montreal to witness it. The Course, we are informed, will be put in the best state of repair, previous to the Races, and every attention will be paid to the accomodation of the spectators, in order that they may receive every gratification which this kind of amusement is capable of affording.

The vessels which are above mentioned as arrived were brought up by the Hercules Tow-Boat, in her usual fine style, and it deserves to be mentioned from the late venerable wind--nd calms—without this valuable assistance they would not in all probabilty, have reached this for sometime instead of being as they now are considerably advanced in discharging their cargoes.

THE NEW YORK CANALS
From the Albany Gazette

 

Since the publication of the article in your paper of yesterday, under the heading of the "new York Canals." I am informed that a barrel of flour can be transported from Albany to New York, for twelve cents and a half, and that one individual advertises to do it for seven cents. My own impression is, that when the Erie canal is finished, a barrel of flour can be transported from Buffalo to New York for one dollar.
A hundred of goods can now be conveyed from the city of New York to Columbus in the state of Ohio, for three dollars and fifty cents.

The distance is from New York to Albany 150 miles
From Albany to Brockport by the canal 289
From Brockport to Buffalo by land   74
From Buffalo to Sandusky by water 247
From Sandusky to Columbus by land 120
  Making the whole distance 880 miles
     
By this way, a hundred costs from New York to Sandusky 2 dollars
  From the latter place to Columbus 1 50 cents
     
From Philadelphia to Columbus by land, 450 miles, the transportation of a hundred of goods costs six dollars
I am also informed that the distance from Albany to Rochester by the canal, instead of being 246, as stated in my former communication, is 268 miles.

North River Steam Boats:— The regular fare on board of the North River steam boats from this city to Albany, is reduced to five dollars ; and on the days on which both the Olive Branch and an old line boat makes the trip, the fare of the latter is but two dollars ! This will be fine for the travellers, but we fear our friends the proprietors will not realize much from it. It will be travelling too cheap. — New York papers


Liverpool, May 24
Loss of the Hannibal:— The Hannibal, of Boston, Captain Low, from Virginia to this port, was struck with lightning on the 22nd ult. in lat. 44, long. 40 30, by which three men were killed, one was suffocated with smoke soon after, and a passenger, Mr. John Taylor, died the next day, in consequences of bruises. The ship was set on fire and after struggling for 36 hours ineffectually to extinguish it, the vessel was abandoned, and the captain, with the remainder of the crew, (14 in number,) took to the boat, and after being out 56 hours, were taken up by the brig Thetis, Captain Taylor, of Whitehaven, from Antigua, from which they received every attention and comfort they could wish for — Captain Low, arrived here on Sunday morning, having been put on board one of the steam-boats bound to this place.

Quebec, July 12.— The Laprairie Steam-Boat, went down yesterdy morning to Berthier, on the South Shore ; a distance of about 25 miles, and returned in the evening. The day was very fine and there were about one hundred and thirty passengers who were well pleased with the beautiful scenery of the river. Mr. Ponsey Merchand of this City, while amusing himself in the fields at Berthier unfortunately broke his leg, a little above the ankle.
Accidents:— On Saturday last, a boy of about 9 years of age, son of a labouring man named Mercier, of St. Roch's Suburb, was found drowned within the Boom at Mr. Goudie's Wharf. The boy had left home about 4 o'clock on Friday for purposes of bringing a load of chips from Mr. G,'s premises and it is supposed went to amuse himself up on the timber within the Boom, by which means the accident happened unnoticed by any person.
On Sunday night, John Tillery, a seaman belonging to the brig Herald, Captain Gibb, fell through Mr. Hunt's Wharf and was drowned. The deceased, who was cook of the brig, had been drinking in a public house in town, when two of his shipmates went to bring him on board ; he left the house and they had proceeded as far as Mr. Hunt's Wharf. Tillery being supported by his comrades, he then refused to go any further with them. The Wharf being in a very dangerous state, and the deceased being very intoxicated, they endevoured to persuade him to return to town and get a bed ; he could not be persuaded, and whilst they were talking, broke away from them, and making towards the brig, fell through the wharf into deep water. Henry Shea, one of the seamen with him, went down to try and save him, the other man went on board the brig and alarmed Captain Gibb, who turned up all hands with lights and boat-hooks, and after a search of about half and hour was found and got out, life was totally extinct.— The height from the wharf to the surface of the water was from 22 to 25 feet, and the water was from 16 to 18 feet deep.—
Two seamen, named John Brown and Samuel Heuley (Henley ?), belonging to the Charles Tennyson, were unfortunately drowned last night, by their boat overturning.— ib
Drowned:— On Monday the 12th instant near the mouth of the Chateauguay River, Mr. Samuel or William Hardy. He was unfortunately knocked overboard by the boom of the Durham boat on his passage to Montreal ; the exertions of the Captain and crew to save him were unavailing. The deceased resided at or near York, U.Canada, and had in his charge 14 barrels of Ashes, marked S.H. which, together with his valise, have been left with D.W. Eager : his body has not yet been found. His friends or relations will receive further information, by applying to Mr. Eager.—Comm.

Charlotte Town, Prince Edward Island
June 12th 1824
Melancholy shipwreck:
It now becomes our painful duty, beyond a doubt, to record the melancholy loss of the brig Jessie, with all the passengers and crew, 26 in number. She sailed from Three Rivers, in Prince Edward Island, on the 25th of December last for Liverpool, G.B. and was seen passing Cheticaw (Cape Breton) on the evening of the 27th, and it is most probable she run on shore that night on St. Paul's Island, opposite Cape North in Cape Breton. From the currency several reports from the adjacent shores of the wreck of a brig on that Island, a small vessel was despatched from the house of Messrs. McKay's (the owners) which returned on Tuesday last with the most conclusive proof of the fatal loss. The wreck of the Jessie lies within 200 yards of the south-west point of the Island, and on the west side of the point, eleven bodies were discovered about half a mile from the wreck ; among whom were recognized Donald McKay, Esq., Mr. Forbes, a Merchant of Miramichi, and Captain McAlpine, who were lying together. It would appear that they must have perished from the severity of the weather, as some provisions were found. The passengers who left Three Rivers in the Jessie, Captain McAlpine, were Donald McKay, Esq., Mr. Forbes, Mr. John Lowe, Mrs. Williams (wife of Mr. John Williams) and two of her family. The loss of each individual is sincerely to be deplored, but the blank which Mr. McKay leaves will be severely felt by every person in this Island, and indeed all who had the happiness of knowing him. The excellence of his whole character, the kindness and benevolence of his disposition, and his affable and truly gentlemanlike manners will be long remembered— no man perhaps ever possessed a warmer or more feeling heart, or enjoyed a greater share of the good will of mankind. A schooner left this town yesterday to bring some of the bodies here for internment, and on her return we hope to be enabled to give more detailed particulars.
Extract of a letter dated Sydney, June 11. "A fishing vessel has lately returned to Margaree, from St. Paul's Island, off Cape North, where they discovered eleven dead bodies of persons lying in a tent on the island, supposed to have perished from cold and starvation, as there appears signs of their having lived on each other."
Arrived at Halifax for Quebec, Nancy, Hunter, Montego Bay, 25 days, spoke in long. 61, brig Robert George for Quebec.
The bark Dunscombe, Harrison, from Bristol to Miramichi, in ballast, was lost about the 1st June, on Scaterie Island near Main à Dieu, Cape Breton. Besides the above vessel which had not been heard of before, there is a brig Sampson, which sailed about the same time.
