Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1825

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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1825.

Extracts from London Papers, from 1st to 4th November, 1824
Elopement:— On Saturday last on the arrival of the Rockingham coach at the Rein Deer Inn, Dorcester, a young girl from Darlington (imprudently on a trip to town with a London lover) was fortunately overtaken by her brother, who had pursued the fugitives on horseback. The lady was instantly handed down, and the disappointed admirer, who is well known to the brother, quietly relinquished all claims to his prize, and proceeded on his journey. After a short remonstrance the ring was doffed, and the runaway consented to return to her almost distracted friends.

  The advantages of steam navigation are extending themselves daily in every part of Europe. A plan has just been formed for establishing a regular communication by steam boats on the great Canal of the Two Seas, in the south of France. As the boat with lateral wheels in common use would present numerous difficulties in canal navigation, a new kind of boat with a single wheel in the stern has been invented by Messrs. Aynard, of Lyons . . . . The passage boats are to be 86 feet long by 15 broad, handsomely fitted up with cabins and other conveniences . . . . It is calculated that the light steamboats will run from Toulouse to Bezieres, 133 miles by the canal, in 32 hours, allowing 7 minutes each for the passage of 78 locks. The present passage boats take 78 hours for the same distance.
January 26th - CC LONDON, Dec. 1st 1824
    It is stated that the losses at Lloyd's by the storm of Monday and Tuesday are beyond calculation, and are scarcely equalled in the memory of the oldest member of the house.
    During the tempest, 300 feet of the battlements of Fonthill Abbey were blown down and glass broken to the amount of several hundred pounds.
    At Taunton, Leaton, Sidmouth, Exeter, Exmouth, South Devon, Plymouth, on the Cornish coast, Portleven, Falmouth, Polperro, Fowey, Lowe, &c. &c. the destruction by the storm is beyond calculation. Several vessels were lost, the names of which are not known.
    One hundered bales of linen had been picked up at sea belonging to some vessel coasted.
    The destruction on the sound by the storm was very great in lives, houses, furniture, trees, fences, walls, &c. &c. Several columns are occupied detailing particulars.
From the London Shipping List of Nov. 26, 1824.

    The Margaret, McLellan, which was ashore at Plymouth, was got off on the 26th Nov. and towed to the beach at Mount Button.
February 9th - CC Latest from Liverpool — New York, Jan. 31st 1825
  Shipwreck of the Diamond
  We regret to learn, by this arrival [packet ship Canada, Captain Rogers, arriving last evening from Liverpool, whence she sailed on the 5th of the present month], that the elegant ship Diamond, Captain Henry Macy, which sailed from this port on the 12th of December, for Liverpool, was lost on the 2nd instant in Cardigan Bay. The particulars of this distressing occurrence have not been received, but we are informed that all who were on board, except one, were lost. The following is a list of the passengers, as published on the departure of the ship.
Mr. John Betterly, lady and daughter, understood of Baltimore ; Messrs. William Walker, and — Walker, from Philadelphia ; Messrs. Robert Givan junior, John Nicholson, John Broadbent, Joseph Broadbent, and William Wood, of New York ; H.N. Gilbert, of Louisiana ; Dr. Strutt of London ; Mr. McDonald, residence not known — and 15 in the steerage.
    The following extract of a letter from G. Thomas, the Agent of Lloyd's at Liverpool, to the owner of the Diamond, dated Jan. 3rd, gives feint hope that some of the crew were saved.
Liverpool, January 3rd
"On Saturday night last, the ship Diamond, Captain H. Macy, from New York, laden with cotton, struck upon the Causeway near the east end, in 7 fathoms water. An express came to me last night for a vessel or boat to go off directly to take six men from the rigging. The Preventive Boat immediately went, and I hope was successful . . . ."
March 9th - CC from the New York Com. Advertiser, 25th February
. . . . We also have the particlars of the loss of the ship Diamond, which is taken from the Liverpool Advertiser of January 6th. The Diamond was quite upright in the water and lay about a mile from land. No papers of any descriptions had been saved.
Cabin Passengers Lost:— Mrs. [ ! ] Wood of Saddleworth ; Mr. Broadbent of Saddleworth ; Mr. Givan of New York ; and a young female, the child of Mr. & Mrs. Betteley of Baltimore, who were saved. The body of Mr. Wood has been found ; in his pockets were upwards of £7,000 which has been saved. Captain Macy, a most respectable individual, and very well known in the trade ; Mr. Clarke, the chief mate ; and one seaman also a person called Lowe, and two other steerage passengers ; making in all ten individuals, met with a watery grave.
The names of Cabin Passengers saved are:— Mr. Nicholson of New York ; Mr. & Mrs. Betteley of Baltimore ; Mr. Gildard, State of Mississippi ; Mr. Macdonald ; Dr. Strutt of London ; Mr. William Walker ; John William Cousins ; and Mr. Broadbent.
Melancholy Accident:— On Tuesday last

as a young man named James Munley was crossing from Kingston to Long Island, he fell through the ice and was unfortunately drowned. The deceased was a native of the County of Mayo in Ireland. — His body was found on Wednesday.
Brockville, March 7th
Fire:— The dwelling house of Mr. Samuel Chaffey, an emigrant

settler in South Crosby, was consumed by fire about two weeks since, by which we are told he has been put to considerable inconvenience, and sustained a loss of upwards of £100.

We are informed that a man of the name of Thomas Radcliffe was drowned about two months since in crossing the stream upon the ice below Mr. Chaffey's mill in South Crosby. At his funeral a few persons attended ; one of whom of the name of Martha Whealan (Whelan) was also unfortunately drowned in crossing the ice over Indian Lake a short distance above the mill on her way homeward. It has been stated to us that Radcliffe left notes, accounts and personal property to a considerable amount, at present in the hands of Mr. Chaffey and the Coroner, J.K. Hartwell, Esq. Radcliffe was an emigrant from Shropshire, England.
March 16th - CC . . . the special committee of the House of Assembly on the subject made the following report viz. :— "That the establishment of a Steam Boat to run regularly during the summer months between the Ports of Quebec and Halifax, touching at the intermediate Ports, would have a most beneficial effect upon the trade and navigation of these Provinces and that an aid to a moderate extent might with propriety be granted towards the advancement of so desirable an object." — Neilson Gazette, Quebec, 9th March 1825
March 19th - CC Waterproof Cloth:
A process has lately been invented in Glasgow by which cloth may be rendered water-proof. It is reported to consist in gluing two pieces of cloth together by a wash of caoutchouc (or indian rubber,) dissolved in the mineral oil produced at the gas works, and passing them through a rollingpress. It is said that a coat may thus be made perfectly impervious to rain.
Warning:— Children are in the habit of chewing India Rubber. It is perhaps not generally known that quick silver is brought in this article, and it may be considred rank poison.
March 26th - CC

The River is open as far as the eye can reach below this City ; two Durham boats arrived in the harbour on Thursday last, a circumstance which has not occurred at this season of the year during the recollection of the oldest inhabitant.

April 9th - CC There is certainly no want of inclinations in the British North American Provinces to improve their resources, as the following abstract of what they are doing or have done reflects, we think, great credit upon them:—
Lower-Canada has given in 1824 upwards of £15,000 for Roads, as a bounty for establishing a Steam Vessel between Halifax and Quebec, for agricultural and other purposes, for a census of its population, &c. ; besides have authorised an additional loan of £30,000 to complete Lachine Canal, near Montreal.
Upper-Canada has voted £25,000 to the Stock of the Welland Canal Company to make the Canal uniting Lake Erie and Ontario, large enough to admit the passage of ordinary vessels upon the Lakes. It has in consideration to take a Loan of £70,000 Sterling, offered by the Imperial Government for the purpose of uniting Lake Ontario with the River Ottawa ; and the improvement of the Navigation of the Rapids of the River St. Lawrence.
Nova Scotia has voted £12,000 to improve its Lateral Communications, besides considerable sums on the Shubenacadie Canal, and to improve its Agriculture, to encourage Commerce &c.
New-Brunswick has voted £10,000 for its Roads and Internal Communications besides £4,000 for its Fish Be—ties, £1,000 to meet the expenses of a Suvey of a Route for a Canal from the Bay of Fundy to the Gulph of the St. Lawrence, and other sums for purposes of Education, Agriculture, the establishing of Light houses &c. &c. . . .
April 16th - CC Emigration to Canada
  The last papers received from England mention that His Majesty's Government had it in contemplation to send two thousand Irish Emigrants to this country. We are persuaded that this measure is another instance of the kindly intentions of the ministers towards the distressed peasantry of Ireland, and we trust that the mode to be practised will be so arranged as to prevent any Job Work in the affair. We know that great hardships have been sustained by Emigrants on their passage to, and after their arrival in this country, through the improper, and criminal conduct of ship agents, and commanders of vessels, and that the good intentions of government were frequently prevented being carried into effect. . . . .Many instances have occurred wherein emigrants have taken advantage of free passages to Canada, and almost immediately after their landing, passed into the United States . . . .
  Steam Boat Intelligence

The Hercules Tow Boat, which has been handsomely painted and fitted up, is now in the harbour.
New-Swiftsure to sail this evening, at 7 o'clock, for Quebec.
Chambly intended to sail tonight for Chambly.
Laprairie sailed last night for Quebec.
The Montreal continues her trips between this city and Laprairie, regularly, twice a day.
We hope the ice mentioned in the Quebec paper as being fast in the river, has since that period, taken its departure, so that the boats will meet with no obstruction in their passage.
The weather is now remarkably pleasant, and the hum of business has commenced along the margin of our dirty beach.

Advertisement Old Line of Liverpool Packets
April 30th - CC To sail on the first and sixteenth of every month
  Ship Columbia, Hugh Graham, master ; to sail 1st of the 5th month (May)
Ship Manchester, William Lee junior, master ; to sail 16th of the 5th month (May)
Ship Pacific, S. Maxwell, master ; to sail 1st of the 6th month (June)
Ship William Thompson, R.R. Crocker, master ; to sail 16th of the 6th month (June)

The Liverpool Packets having met with general approbation and support, the owners of them have concluded to add to the number of vessels employed in that establishment — and they now intend that the following ships shall sail between New-York and Liverpool, in regular succession, twice in each month, from each port leaving both New-York and Liverpool on the 1st and 16th of every month throughout the year, viz:

Ships Masters
New York Thomas Bennet
Columbia Hugh Graham
Manchester William Lee junior
Pacific S. Maxwell
William Thompson R.R. Crocker
Florida Joseph Tinkham
Canada James Rogers
James Cropper Charles H. Marshall
  These ships were all built in New-York, of the best materials, and are coppered, and copper fastened. They are very fast sailers ; their accomodations for passengers are uncommonly extensive and commodious, and they are commanded by men of great experience.
The price of passage to England, in the Cabin, is now fixed at thirty guineas, for which sum passengers will be furnished with Beds and Bedding, Wine and Stores of the best quality.
  For further particulars, apply to      
Francis Thompson
Isaac Wright & Son
Benjamin Marshall
Jeremiah Thompson
New York, or to     
Horatio Gates & Co. Montreal 
  The decided preference generally given by passengers from the Canadas, to the above old line of Packets is duly appreciated by the proprietors, and no pains nor expense will be spared in fully manning their vessels with expert and experienced Officers, Seamen, Servants &c. &c. That not only safety (as far as depends on human skill and exertion;) but also comfort shall be insured to passengers.

      A considerable number of vessels are stated to be at hand. It is we believe, without precedent that so great a number were in port at the same time of the year.
    The vessels which arrived yesterday fell in with a considerable extent of heavy field-ice, with a number of ice-bergs on the banks of Newfoundland. There was no ice in the gulf except at Cape North ; but it is probable that vessels arriving there later than they did would meet with ice. The William Bensley, only saw a brig in the ice, and met nothing worth notice on her passage. Both vessels might have been up two days sooner had it been known that the ice opposite this port had gone off.
    We understand that intelligence is received from which it is conjectured that the Saguenay, of this port, has been lost on the United States coast.
    The Emma, Reed, dismasted last fall at Hare-Island, which had wintered at Kamouraska, is nearly ready for sea and will sail about 1st May.
    The following vessels were to sail from Liverpool for Quebec early in April viz: Urania, Hibernia, Carrick, Rajnd [sic Rajah ?] , Indian, New John, Benson, Charlotte, and Henry Cerf.
    The Symmetry, Cram, was to leave Bristol, for Quebec 24th March, and the General Wolfe, Stanworth, Ontario, Wells, Chilton, Galley, and Centurion, Banquier, on the 28th March.

The new states of South America, with their ample territories and free institutions, are attracting the most earnest attention of the old and crowded countries of Europe. A ship load of farmers and mechanics well supplied with the implements of their respective callings, lately sailed from Greenock for Buenos Ayres. A strong infusion of Scotch sobriety, perseverance and frugality, would be of great advantage to any portion of South America ; and it would be wise in the new states to invite as much emigration as possible from the northern countries of Europe, for the sake of the moral value and force of the northern character, as well as the sake of the numbers.
Extract of a letter from Havana to a gentleman in Washington, dated 5th April 1825
"Sixteen pirates, taken above Matanzas, have been committed to prison this day. They were taken in company with the Dartmouth frigate, schooners Lion and Union, by the Sea Gull. I therefore regret exceedingly that they were given up here ; as every one of them will be released in the course of a few months. In case the American cruisers have orders to give up the prisoners they capture on this coast to this government, they may as well be recalled to the United States. In this gang was found the only man who was pardoned, at Jamaica, out of the gang taken by Captain Graham at the Isle of Pines, last summer, who afterwards entered on board one of the British schooners of war, where he remained till lately, when he made his escape and joined them again, and was afterwards taken by the same officers from whom he had escaped."

The wind has prevailed from the east for the last four or five days past, but no other regular traders than the General Wolfe and Ontario, both from Bristol, have yet made their appearance ; besides these two there have been only four arrivals since this day s'ennight.
The Ontario, Willis, from Bristol, with a full cargo, sailed yesterday for Montreal ; she is the first vessel from sea which has passed up this season.
The Commerce, bound to Richibucto which came to this port for repairs was erroneously stated to have a cargo of dry goods and rum. She was in ballast.
The brig Ontario built last year at Quebec, arrived in this port on Saturday from Bristol. The Steam Tow Boat Hercules, having had her damage repaired, came up from Three Rivers on Monday, and sailed again for Quebec on the same evening, with the ship Lady Rowena in Tow. She may be shortly expected back with one, or more of the vessels lately arrived at Quebec.
A singular circumstance, which was likely to produce serious consequences occurred the other day at LaPrairie. When the Steam-Boat Canadian lately built at LaPrairie, and owned by Mr. Raymond, was about to be launched, two men on board the Montreal were engaged in firing off a small piece of ordinance in compliment to the intended launch. One of the men was preparing to load the gun a second time, when the other called out to be careful, as there were some sparks remaining from the former discharge ; the person so cautioned then put his mouth to the muzzle, and blew with all hs force, in order to drive the fire out through the vent ; but it was afterwards proved that his lungs were not sufficiently powerful to accomplish this, as, on attempting to deposit a second charge of powder in the Gun, the fire which still remained, coming in contact with the charge instantly produced an explosion, before these experienced cannoneers had time to save temselves, as both were severely scorched in the faces and breasts. A medical man being present was applied to, who directed them to to use some wash which he had prepared, but one of the sufferers instead of applying the liquid externally, drank it off. On this being discovered, a quantity of milk was immediately administered, which produced vomiting, and thus in all probability the man's life was preserved. Neither of the men have sustained any other injury than that of the scorching, their eyes being fortunately saved. So much for ignorance of the manner in which guns should be loaded. We hope this will be a caution to others, and render them more careful in future.

The Steamboat built at Queenston by Mr. R. Hamilton, was launched on Saturday last. We viewed her on Monday, and she appeared to us to be built of the most durable and safe materials. We wish the enterprising proprietor every success in his undertaking.
The Toronto Steam-Boat was launched on the 23rd. She is to run between this port and Niagara.
— York Observer
The list of Ships launched last week, we omitted to notice the ship Jessy Lawson, built at the yard of Messrs. Sheppard & Campbell, for the firm Tweedie & Cuthbertson, of Glasgow ; this fine vessel went off the stocks on Thursday last, in a superior style, but the inclemency of the weather was such, that few witnessed the launch, except the parties interested.— Mercury.
Late letters from Ireland agree in stating that a greater number of emigrants will sail this year for the Canadas than in any former one. Most of the vessels from that country for Quebec were waiting for passengers and would sail before the 15th April.

She did not receive any damage by this circumstance.

  Yesterday, a poor woman in going on board the Ship Dublin from the Brewery wharf fell between the vessel and the wharf ; the accident was no sooner known, on board, than the second mate of the Dublin plunged into the water and at the imminent risk of his own life happily rescued the unfortumate creature from her perilous situation. The name of this gallant fellow, we understand, is George Ferry.— Mercury 17th May
Melancholy accident:— On Saturday last a young man named John Green was drowned at the wharf near the ferry houseimmediately below McQueen's boarding house. It appears that when in the act of taking up a bucket of water, he lost his balance and fell in. Dr. Sampson and Dr. Franklin of the 37th used every means that skill and humanity could suggest to restore animation, but to no avail. The deceased was a native of the county of Monaghan, in Ireland. — Kingston Chronicle
The Steam Boat Quebec, which arrived here on the 16th inst., brought a number of passengers, chiefly Emigrants from Europe. We understand that the Small Pox is very prevalent amongst the children who arrived by the Quebec, and that one died on the passage.
We have been informed by a gentleman, who came as a passenger in the Amethyst from London, that he heard from good authority in the British capital, that arrangements were making to send 15,000 Irish Emigrants to Canada this Summer.
We have just been favoured with a Liverpool paper of the 19th [April], from which we have copied the following. — Mercury 17th May
House of Commons, April 14th
Emigration from Ireland
Mr. Bonon rose to propose that a certain sum should be granted to his Majesty for the removal of emigrants from the south of Ireland to the Cape of Good Hope and Canada. It was not the intention of Ministers to propose a renewal of this grant on any future occasion. He stated that the principle on which the system of emigration from the south of Ireland was conducted was a sound one. The error of all former systems was, that the emigrant on his arrival at the Colony, was left without any means of immediate support. Under the present sytem the error was avoided ; and every emigrant might on his arrival be sure, with the exercise of common industry of procuring a livelyhood. Government has received the most flattering accounts of the success which had attended the present system so late as up to last February. Under these circumstances, he felt justified in proposing the present vote. The undertaking was merely in the nature of an experiment, which might, in its operation, effect a partial benefit to Ireland.
After a short discussion the vote was agreed to.
On the motion of Mr. Herries, the Customs and Excise Consolidation Acts went through a Committee, and leave was given to bring a Bill to amend and embody the same.

The wind which for several days past had prevailed from the eastward, having changed, has permitted the vessels which were wind-bound to proceed to sea.
Mr. Symes, passenger in the Dew-drop, arrived in town yesterday from that vessel, which he reports at hand ; she left Gravesend on the 6th April. On passing Bic, the Dew-drop discovered a brig between that Island and Biqnet [Biquette] which she supposed to be on shore— The brig had all her masts standing with a Jack flying at her fore-top gallant mast head [brig Friends, from Dublin, with 120 emigrants]. The Dew-drop also passed by the Quebec Packet at anchor off Green Island, and spoke, above the Traverse, the brig Mars, from Liverpool, the Lady Harwood, the Jane, the Albion, of Dublin, with settlers, saw a bark full of settlers, and above 50 sail vessels between Quebec and Green Island.
The Perseverance, Egg, the first vessel which entered the port this season, sailed again on Tuesday last, with a full cargo for Plymouth.
The ship Mansfield, of 370 tons, was launched from Messrs. McDonald and Howe's Ship-yard, at Mrs. Munn's Cove, on Wednesday morning ; the bark Surrey, of 360 tons, was put off the blocks from the same yard on Thursday morning. They were both built by Mr. Labee.— A very fine ship of upwards of 400 tons, called the Lord Melville was also launched the same morning from Mr. Taylor's Yard at Canoterie.

A Cork paper states that nine vessels will sail from that port for Quebec, in the course of this and the ensuing month with 2000 emigrants and their families. — St. James Chronicle, 16th April
— Upwards of 150 settlers from Perthshire, Scotland, arrived here yesterday in the Niagara, on their way to the Township of McNab, on the Ottawa River. McNab of McNab, the proprietor of the Township, being in this City when the [brig] Niagara arrived, went on board, in full Highland Costume, accompanied by Miles McDonald Esq., and a Piper. Mr. McN. cordially shook hands with his country men, and gave them a true highland welcome to Canada. These emigrants appear to be persons of intelligence, and from their robust form, we suppose they will be an acquisition in a new country, particularly as they have been accustomed to the pursuits of agriculture in their native one.

Mr. Tracey came up in the Zenophon [Xenophon] yesterday from the brig Friends, of and from Dublin, lost on the Island of Biquette, about 160 miles below this port. The Friends drove ashore on Tuesday the 18th inst. she has 120 Irish emigrants on board, who were all safely landed with their baggage and provisions, and remain on the island. This vessel left Dublin on the 19th ultimo, in ballast ; she is a total wreck. Assistance to convey the emigrants to the place of destination was desired.

Expeditious Travelling.—
By an arrangement lately made the distance between this city and Prescott can be accomplished by Stages, and Steam Boats in the following time and manner. The Stage takes its departure from Montreal at noon and proceeds to Lachine, where the passengers enter the Steam Boat that conveys them to the Cascades, a distance of 25 miles. From the Cascades to Coteau du Lac, 15 miles they are carried in a Stage ; thence to Cornwall, 40 miles by Steam Boat ; and from Cornwall to Prescott, 50 miles they are taken by the Stage, at which latter place they arrive before sun set on the evening after the day they left Montreal, the whole distance being computed 140 miles [sic]. The return from Prescott to this place is yet more expeditious ; and on Saturdays the Stage will depart at one o'clock A.M. and arrive here the same evening, which will prevent travelling on the Sabbath. To mercantile men this facility must afford particular gratification ; and to strangers the alternate jaunts by water, and land, will be a recreation which will greatly enhance the pleasures of the journey both up and down the river.

Some of the vessels which have arrived lately fell in with considerable quantities of ice, and were detained in it for several days ; it has come down this season later and in greater quantities than usual ; Many of the shipping arrived in the United-States met with immense fields of it ; those coming from the westward have encountered most—
The following is a comparative statement of the arrivals at Quebec, on the 26th May 1824, and the same period in 1825. There is no instance when so many vessels were in port so early in the season. It is gratifying to find that a greater number of them than usual have cargoes. A greater number than usual, we believe, have proceeded to Montreal, that port now being easily reached by the use of the tow boat. There are undoubtedly better prospects as regards the trade of this vast and rapidly improving country than ever. Intelligence, enterprize, prudence, and a strict attention to the quality of our exports, will soon raise the Canadas to very great importance.
