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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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

Loss of the brig Endeavour, Forsyth, of South Shields

This vessel in 10 days from this port went ashore in a fog on the 27th July, at Mechigan, near Fortune Bay in the Island of Newfoundland.— Captain and crew are saved, but the vessel, it is stated, will not be got off. Captain Forsyth, had landed at Mechigan and it was hoped would be able to save part of the cargo and materials. The cargo consisted chiefly of ashes and timber. The vessel was bound to London, and owned by Mr. Richard Hunter, of South Shields.


    Cleared at Halifax, Providence, Sire, for Quebec, also brig Halifax, Whittin, for Quebec. Schooner President, and brig Sir James Kempt, at Halifax from Quebec in 10 days.

The Martha, reports that the Columbus went on shore on Petit Mittis Point on the night of the 8th, and saw her in the same situation two days after. It is however believed, from her resting on a hard sandy bottom, she will be got off the next high tides, without sustaining any material injury. Captain Milburn, of the Martha, has also furnished the following:—

September 4, at 11 A.M. saw a wreck on the lee bow, with nothing standing above water, but the bowsprit and quarter boards, bore down upon it, and ascertained it to be the Rebecca, of St. John, New Brunswick, appeared to have been a schooner ; the quarter and main decks were gone, and forecastle and deck rising and falling with the waves of the sea. She was stove down to the floor-head in the starboard side, as if some vessel had struck her ; there was several casks in the bottom of the hold that lay fast, some iron and others wooden hooped ; the quarter boards on the larboard side were fast, with the exception of one, bulwarks on both sides were entire, likewise the head, but everything swept away in midships ; the windlass stood fast, paint quite fresh (black with two white streaks) the rudder also fast, tiller gone, and when left she was in lat. 48, 51 N. and 38 miles S.E.E. per compass from the south point of Anticosti.

The Emerald saw the Columbus on Saturday last, and was within a quarter mile of her. They were busily employed lighting her.

    A Jolly Boat with "Thisbe of Liverpool," on the stern, was picked up by the Margaret Ann, arrived at Miramichi, in long. 36. The boat was bottom up. This vessel, it is statedbsailed from Liverpool in April last with a very valuable cargo for Montreal, and has not since been heard of.
    The wreck mentioned in Friday's Supplement as having been fallen in with by the Martha, is supposed to be the Rebecca, Squires, which was lately upset in a squall at Bay des Chaleurs, and owing to the wind freshening was abandoned. No lives were lost.


The total number of vessels which have cleared out from this port since the opening of the navigation amounts to 464, in which is included those built in the country this season, and others, sime of which have made two and three trips, 501 vessels have arrived from sea during the same period, and about sixty remain in port, loading, &c.
Amount of Tonnage to this date,     — 124,743 — Settlers, 6,400
Amount of Tonnage ditto, last year — 101,093 — Settlers, 9,774

The Trusty saw the Columbus on Sunday the 12th instant with her head to the westward, and apparently afloat— The bark Europe further states that she saw her the same day, at 6 P.M. with all sail set, standing down the river ; wind blowing strong from the westward. It appears that after lighting her a little she floated into deep water. From the time she remained on shore, it is not possible that much of her cargo could have been removed. The reports respecting great quantities of timber and deals having been seen afloat, are, it is believed, without foundation.
Murder:— On Monday evening a Mr. Tarbox of Prescott, U.C. having ferried from the American side of the St. Lawrence, a boat load of chairs, was accused of smuggling them by Mr. Hamilton the Deputy Collector of Presott, or otherwise exasperated, which brought on an altercation, followed by blows. During the scuffle, Mr. Hamilton cut Mr. Tarbox with a knife, on the neck, in such a manner as to separate the jugular vein [sic] & cause his immediate death. It seems to be a question, whether Hamilton returned to the house for the knife, or whether he had it with him when the affray began. What makes this event more deplorable, is the fact that Tarbox had a permit for bringing the chairs into the province, consequently, any difficulty was unnecessary. Hamilton has been lodged in the gaol at Prescott, to await trial. Both he and the deceased were married men. We give this as we heard it.— Canadian Times

Brockville, September 27th:

Murder,— Henry Hamilton was committed to the Jail of this District, on Tuesday last, charged with the murder of Samuel Tarbox of Prescott, who has for a considerable time acted as Ferryman between Prescott and Ogdensburgh. The circumstances of this melancholy affair as we have heard them are as follows:— It seems Hamilton had been to Ogdensburgh & bargained for some chairs to be sent to Prescott for him ; the person with whom he made the agreement being doubtful about getting his pay, took the chairs himself across to Prescott, and after having entered them at the Customs House left them in custody of Mrs. Tarbox (Tarbox being then absent) with instructions not to let them go out of her possession until Hamilton should have paid her the amount demanded for them. Shortly after Hamilton called for the chairs, Mrs. Tarbox refused to give them up until he should have paid the sum required, which he refused to do, and swore he would have them, and as he was Deputy Customs House Officer would seize them as smuggled property, and accordingly forcibly took the chairs away. In the evening when Tarbox came home his wife informed him of the affair he went immediately in quest of Hamilton to have the matter arranged, and met with him in the street ; a quarrel ensued ; after some hard words had passed, Hamilton left Tarbox, and went to his saddler's shop, but shortly returned, and the quarrel was renewed, when Hamilton told Tarbox that he was armed, and requested him to desist from abusing him, but Tarbox continued speaking to him. Hamilton then said he would hear it no longer and made a pass at him, which Tarbox received in the hand which was severely cut, and he retreated but was followed up by Hamilton who continued to strike at him in which Tarbox was again cut in the hand and breast, and as he was stooping he received the fatal blow in the neck which having entered deep and severed one of the large blood vessels, he fell and shortly expired. The instrument used by Hamilton is supposed to have been a saddler's round knife, used by them for cutting leather ; it being dusk the by-standers could not distinctly discern what it was & it has yet not been found. An inquest was held on the body of Tarbox, and from the evidence adduced to the Jury, they were under the necessity of giving a verdict of "Wilful Murder."

Montreal
On Friday morning last the Steam Boat Richelieu in her passage from Quebec to this port, was ran foul of by the New Swiftsure, and received some damage. As we understand this circumstance will become an object of legal investigation, we forbear making any comments on the information we have received which is of a doubtful character on both sides relative to the transaction. The truth however may be brought out on evidence, and we shall then lay a statement of the affair before the public.

  Welland Canal.— W.H. Merritt, Esq. one of the Directors of the Welland Canal Company, has been authorised to go to New York, for the purpose of disposing some shares in that establishment ; the act of the legislature of Upper Canada, incorporating the Company, allowing foreigners to become stock holders. We saw a letter from this gentleman to a friend here, stating that he had succeeded in disposing of stock in New York to the amount of 50 thousand dollars. This with the same already subscribed in Canada will enable the Directors to progress with the work, and overcome all the difficulties which have been placed in their way.
Although we are pleased with the success which Mr. Merritt has met with, yet we regret the necessity which existed for raising supplies out of the country, to accomplish and object which is so well calculated to produce solid advantages to these provinces ; however, it is gratifying to understand that the work will be pursued with spirit, and that [—] will be effected by the praiseworthy efforts of a few per[—]ing characters who will be entitled to the thanks, and gratitude of prosperity.

Casualty.— Andrew McDonald, a [—] waiter, was unfortunately drowned from off Mr. Atkinson's Wharf on Thursday last.

Hayti.— Emigration to Hayti (says the National Advocate) is progressing with unexampled rapidity ; it is not a mere experiment, but vessel after vessel is dispatched. It is expected that the ship Concordia will sail this day, with 160 coloured persons of both sexes. The Post says, that "six vessels at Philadelphia, one at Port Elizabeth, one at Alexandria, and several others at Baltimore, are on the eve of sailing for the same destination. It is calculated that between 3 and 4000 of these persons will leave the United States within a few days, and that every fortnight additional numbers will be shipped off under the direction of President Boyer's agent, who pays the expense of their transmission, by authority of the Haytian government.

 
EMIGRATION IN CANADA
    We have the great pleasure in communicating satisfactory accounts with which we have been favoured, from the interesting settlement of Lanark, in Upper Canada. Our enterprising countrymen enjoy excellent health. They are proceeding successfully in clearing their land and accumulating stock ; though by injudicious choice on the part of the Government surveyor, the land had not turned out so well as was expected, being in many places sandy and rocky, and by no means so fertile as the ground generally is in that country ; yet are the settlers pleased with the return. Each has from eight to fifteen acres in cultivation ; and many of them have built new houses and appropriated the original huts to their cattle. They have set up a school, which has already thirty-four scholars ; and their Minister has announced a newspaper. A grist-mill has been erected by Mr. Bower.
    The settlers, who, as was formerly noticed, abandoned their possessions, and went to work in the United States, had after a few months' trial, generally come back. Their wages, though high, were paid in the troublesome shape of goods ; for which however, they got a ready market on their return. Cattle thrive so well that many of the settlers, who brought only one cow, have seven or eight young or old. They have calves two years old. They are attended with very little trouble, living mostly on the leaves and shoots of trees. As the horses in the English forest bruise the whins with their feet to save their mouths from prickles, and as the sheep in the moors of Scotland draw up the ling that they may get at the soft white stalk enclosed by the hard under-hose, so the cows of Canada bite through small trees to bring within their reach the tender shoots ; and when the trees are too thick to be thus cut, the sagacious animals bend them down with their necks, and push along till they reach the tops. They are little subject to dispemper ; but in two or three instances have been killed by the fall of trees. They give from five to six Scottish pints of rich milk a day ; which churned will yield 16 oz. of butter. In size they about equal to the cows of this country and sell from £4 to £5 each. A pair of oxen will cost from £15 to £20. They are only beasts of burden. No horses have yet been introduced. Now that some extent of land is cleared, they are adding sheep to their stock. The sheep are finely wooled ; and will be very beneficial to the fireside manufactures. Pigs and poultry thrive exceedingly, and find the most of their own food during summer.— Most rye, pease and potatoes, are the surest crops, and are of the best quality. Flax grows luxuriently. Turnips in general are good, but they sometimes fail. Indian corn is also uncertain, from being occasionally too late. Pumpkins are easily cultivated, and are admirable food for cattle. Melons are raised without trouble, and are eargerly devoured by the settlers in hot weather. All the culinary vegetables flourish in gardens. The female part of the colony grumbled at the log-huts and the cold weather, but since their husbands are in circumstances to build good houses, almost every trace of dissatisfaction has vanished. A correspondent, (Mr. James Lindsay) who has a good deal more land in cultivation than the average, says, "the people are now making themselves comfortable. They have this year put up many new houses and barns ; and are going on with more. They are all convinced how much better they are off here than they were in Scotland. In place of one week's provision for their family, they now have 12 months of good flour, and all other comforts of life, and many of the luxuries, with little trouble." Another correspondent we will quote by name — Mr. John McLachlan — who had the merit of exposing the system of espionage and investigation practised in times, happily for the poor workman, now past. "This settlement is improving fast. As assessor I had an opportunity of visiting every house in the west-half last season, and I was well satisfied with the progress that had been made ; the people in general being comfortable and truely contented." The writer, though his children are too young for work, has twelve acres cleared.— A letter recently received by Mr. Lamond from Mr. D. Young, late of Bathgate, is very favourable for the colony : "Our climate is 10 deg. S. of that of Glasgow, and a few degrees warmer ; however, at the warmest not intolerable, but very delightful even at noon. The nights are generally very cool, and the dews copiously abundant. Indeed the whole season though there is such a similarity to the climate of Scotland, that, could a person be removed from the one to the other asleep, little difference could be observed. A few days after Christmas the frost gets dreadfully severe in the night time ; but if clear, the sun has as much influence, even then, as at home in the month of March. Our severest weather is in January and February ; however, excepting two or three days every ten or twelve, about nine or twelve days in the whole winter, the temperature has been such that a person could scarcely fell trees through the day in the woods with his coat on, without much perspiration. From the 1st March till the 9th or 10th of April, the sun's influence melts a part of the snow every day, till it entirely disappears. In the woods where the sun's influence cannot reach, it lies till near the end of April, when it disappears, even in the shade. The spring comes on as sonn as the snow is off, and every thing springs delightfully rapid. The buds open gradually ; and about 8th or 9th of May, all is green. After the land is cleared its aspect is very like that of lands in Scotland. Some tracks very level, some hilly, some a strong black soil, some clay, some sandy, some rocky, and some covered pretty thick with tumbling stones. We have a very pure, healthful air—an almost unclouded sun—a soil astonishingly grateful to the labours of industry. This country is thickly intersected with delightful rivers and lakes, stocked with fish, if we had time to catch them." —Glasgow Chronicle.

Dreadful Shipwreck
A seaman named Francis Olford, belonging to Polperro, has recently returned to his native place, having lost both his legs, and being otherwise in a pitiful state of distress. The following account is given by this poor fellow of the cause of his calamity :— On the 3rd of April, 1823, he sailed from Plymouth, in the brig, Mountstone, Coleman, master, bound for St. John's, Newfoundland. The crew consisted of the master, Samuel Longmaid the mate, three seamen, Olford, Cost and Dingle, and a cabin boy. They had on board, beside Mr. Hodge, the owner of the vessel, and his son, a lad of about 17 years of age, Mr. Rothwell a passenger. They had rather a favourable passage until the 7th of May, when during the prevalence of a dense fog, and while the vessel was sailing at the rate of eight knots an hour, they struck against a body of ice that was level with the surface of the water. The shock was so severe, that the vessel was stove in, and after a vain attempt to stop the leak, they were forced to get into the boat, without being able to save a morsel of food, a drop of water, or an article of clothing but what they had on, and push from the ship, which was rapidly sinking. Soon after leaving the vessel she went down, and they proceeded to make the best of their way towards the land, from which they were then 300 miles distant. They continued to row for three days, when being completely exhausted by fatigue, hunger, thirst and cold, they were compelled to desist, and resigning themselves to their fate, they allowed the boat to drive before the sea. On the 5th day, Mr. Rothwell, the passenger, expired ; on the seventh day, young Hodge, the owner's son, died ; his father, a few hours after, shared the same fate ; and was speedily followed by Cost and Dingle, the two seamen, the mate, and the boy, leaving only the master and Olford alive, but reduced to the state of weakness. On the 17th of May, ten days after quitting the Mountstone, they were observed by a vessel belonging to Liverpool, on board of which they were taken and treated with every attention their deplorable state required. The next day they were landed about 100 miles from St. John's where they obtained medical assistance. — In consequence of his feet being frost-bitten whilst in the boat, Olford had them amputated a little above the ankles. In the month of October last, he was sent to St. John's to obtain passage home ; whilst there, it was found necessary again to amputate his legs a little below the knees. After recovering from this second operation he was sent home, and has at length reached his native place in the state already described.— West Briton. 13th September.

  There has been no arrival from sea since Tuesday last. Several vessels are yet expected ; some of which are known to have sailed in the early part of September. Their non arrival is much to be regretted, on account of the lateness of the season. The wind, which for some time past has, generally, prevailed from the westward, is no doubt the principal cause of their not making their appearance. There are yet upwards of fifty vessels in port, loading. In which great activity is using in order to despatch them as early as possible.

 Quebec, Nov. 5.— The weather which has been unsettled for some weeks past, yesterday assumed a very wintery appearance, the wind was from the eastward, and a fall of snow commenced about noon which still continues ; this morning many of the market people came to town in sleighs ; there is nearly six inches of snow upon the level, but as it is very wet, and the wind veering to the south, it will probably turn to rain. —Mercury

Steam Boat Accident.— The Steam Boat Montreal, in her passage from Laprairie to this city (Montreal), yesterday, struck on a projecting point of the "Trois Roch," by which a leak was caused, that defied the exertions of the pumps. She is now in this port, but will not be able to resume her trips until repaired. As the Steam Boat navigation is increasing, and as similar accidents oblige the proprietors to send the vessels injured to Quebec for repairs ; we would suggest to the Commissioners of the Lachine Canal the propriety, and expediency of forming a Dock, or Lock, at the confluence of the Canal, where river craft and steam vessels might be repaired without the trouble, risque, and expence of sending them to a distant place.

The Harmonites, it is said, are about to return to the state of Pennsylvania.

    Accounts from below state that snow storms of Friday and Saturday last were most tremendous, and had causes considerable damage to several vessels bound up and down the river, which has, unfortunately proved too correct. The Harlequin, one of our regular traders expected some time past, is stated to be on shore on Green Island close to the Light House, where she was driven in the gale on Friday last. The schooner Marie Victoire, Lajoie, from Halifax for this port is also wrecked near Point St. Valier. Several small craft, have, it is said, gone down to the assistance of those vessels.
    The brig Fisher, Kay, which sailed from hence on the 31st ult. has returned. She lost both anchors and bowsprit off the Brandy Pots on Saturday last. The Emma, Reid, from hence, had also suffered considerably. She lost both masts &c. but succeeded in ridng out the gale.
    The brig Anglim returned yesterday with loss of an anchor, cable and bowsprit ; she reports having seen a brig at anchor in the traverse, which she took to be the Mary & Jane, with loss of rudder and main topmast, and a signal of distress flying.
    The brig Maria, White, has also returned with the loss of anchors and cables.
    The schooner William, Jackson, for Dublin, lying in the harbour, lost both her anchors yesterday, and carried away her gib-boom by being run foul of.
    The schooner Seaflower, Baker, sailed from St. John's, Newfoundland on the 24th of October, and arrived last Saturday evening off Patrick's Hole, being a passage of only thirteen days. The Charlotte, Chesney, for this port, sailed from St. John's on the same day as the Seaflower.
    The Commerce, of Glasgow, was seen by the Royal Charlotte off Cape Chat, 31st ult. Spoke the Cato, McCall, off Matan, 1st inst., all well.
    H.M. Brig Icarus for Halifax, got under way yesterday morning, but soon after came to anchor and did not sail until the afternoon. Several Merchantmen have also left the port during yesterday and today.
The Telegraph announces a square rigged vessel coming up.

. . . The weather has of yet, however, not been cold, and 20 vessels remain in the river, of these, four or five are at Montreal or on their way down. The wind was strong and favourable today for their proceeding to sea, and 7 or 8 sailed ; among them was the Rebecca, McKenzie, and Cherub, Rayside, for Greenock.
    The passengers in the Harlequin, Hall, from London, have come up to Quebec, and confirm the reports in circulation of her being ashore at Green Island. They state she struck on White Island reef, Tuesday night, 2nd instant, and in getting off filled so rapidly, to save the lives of the passengers and crew, she was run ashore at Green Island, near the Light House, and that it is not probable that any of the cargo can be saved undamaged. The vessel is a total wreck.
The following are the passengers in the Harlequin :— Mr. Keagh, Mr. Miller, Honble. Mr. Gordon, 76th Regiment, Captain Teifer.
    The brig Emma, Reed, for London, which was dismasted on Sunday the 7th inst. at Hare Island, has been towed into Kamouraska by a schooner, and is now lying on the rocks with loss of masts, anchors and cables. Capt. Reed, Mr. Lambly, Harbour Master, and two other persons went down this morning to survey her. She was loaded by Mr. Samuel Adams, and had a full cargo fo Deals.
    The Union, after a passage of 60 days, havng sailed on the 8th September last from Liverpool, was announced by a telegraphic report as on shore on the south side of the Island of Orleans, near the Church of the Parish of Saint Laurent, 10 miles below this port, on Tuesday afternoon last, 9th instant. Capt. Dysart has since come up to town. The Union had lost both anchors and windlass in the late gale. We understand that she has a cargo of salt, &c. and that it is probable that she will not be got off this fall.— Neilson's Gazette

As the resent advanced state of the season precludes the probability of our having any more arrivals from sea, the following statement of the number of vessels with their total burthen of tonnage since the opening of the navigation, compared with that of last year, may not be considered uninteresting :
Nov. 15th 1823— 543 vessels — Tonnage, 131,820
Nov. 16th 1824— 600 vessels — Tonnage, 148,477
From the above statement it will be seen that the arrivals during the past season, have exceeded those of 1823, by fifty-seven, giving an excess in tonnage of 16,657, which considering the number of vessels lost in the early part and during the navigation, is a fair increase to the trade of this year.

The number of settlers which have arrived this year is 6,515,
being less than that of the last by 8,743.

The past season is the first of the use of a Steam Tow Boat on the St. Lawrence ; a method of applying the power of steam to navigation only practised within a couple of years in England, and we believe, unknown any where else. It promises to have such material effects on the navigation of this river, that it may prove of interest to have the following statement, which may be relied upon.

The Hercules has made during the season twenty-six trips, in each of which we include her going and returning to this port, and has also towed the Columbus to Bic, 160 miles below. The average of her passages between the two ports was 2½ days, (that by sails is stated at 17) and she towed upwards of 2 ships, 32 brigs and 12 schooners and downwards 18 brigs ; as she had two schooners employed for the season, one of those always attended her, and sometimes both. In one trip downwards she towed three brigs and three schooners, and in another three brigs and two schooners—although it is thought that she towed vessels at too low a price, yet she is stated to have fully paid her expenses, and the gentlemen engaged in her introduction, to have met with no loss on this first trial, which is a promising commencement. Her consumption of fuel was about 2500 cords of wood and 200 chaldrons of coal. About six weeks ago she was neatly fitted up, so as to accomodate 24 passengers.— Neilson's Gazette


Bellows, Falls (Vermont), Nov. 1

Elevation :— A few evenings since, an inhabitant of a neighbouring village returning from an excursion to this town, and happening to be vino ciboque gravalus, in English, with his skin full of gin, fell fast asleep in his chaise. While enjoying nature's sweet balm, his horse, attempting to turn, backed the wheels off one side of a bridge twenty feet high. But mark, how fortune favours the sleepy ! The chaise lodged in the top of a young hemlock that stood by the bridge ; the faithful steed maintained his ground, and our hero's slumbers were not disturbed till morning, when he clambered carefully out of his leafy couch, and called his nearest neighbour to help him get his chaise out of the tree top.—Intell.


Close of Navigation :— We believe that, with the exception of the Laprairie, all other Steam Boats have been laid up in their winter quarters : The former left this place on Monday evening for Quebec, on her last trip ; she will return here in a few days, and then retire for the winter.
