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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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

Melancholy Accident:— On Friday last as the Steam Boat which plies between Point Fortune and Hull was on her way down, Mr. Henry Francis, the Engineer, was caught by the foot in the Engine, and drawn in nearly to the middle of his body, which was mangled in such a way to cause his death in six hours afterwards. His remains were brought to this City, and interred in the English burying ground on Monday last. The deceased has left an affectionate wife (to whom he had been married only six months) to lament his untimely fate.

The timber ship Columbus, was to sail from Deal on the 21st of April, for St. John, N.B. She is commanded by Captain Monroe, and active and experienced seaman who has with him a crew of 70 men, on the same wages that are paid to the sailor of other ships trading to North America. She has a steam engine fitted on deck, for the purpose of heaving in and out her cargo and for working two extra iron pumps, if at any time she should become leaky.

The Elizabeth, upwards of 500 tons burthen, left London for Cork early in April, to carry out settlers to Quebec on account of Government. [a Peter Robinson ship]
The George Provost was to leave London for Montreal early in May.
On the 2nd inst. the main flue of the Steam Boat Legislator, which plies between New York and New Brunswick [of the New York & Philadelphia Line], burst, which caused the instant death on one man, (the Cook) [Francis Raney] and scalded a number of the passengers, two of whom died an hour after having been carried in the Hospital. A young lady was so much frightened that she jumped overboard, but was fortunately rescued. The Editor of the Commercial Advertiser, makes the following remark at the conclusion of his statement of this accident, "we hope the Common Council will prohibit high pressure boats with Iron boilers from using any of our docks and slips." A boy was found dead in the boiler, into which he had fallen on attempting to escape.
From the United States:
Strange Emigration:— On Sunday last, between twenty and thirty large waggons, loaded down with Emigrants and their families, passed through Geneva on their way westward. Their exterior carried the appearance of wealthy and respected Farmers. Upon enquiry they informed the editor they were from Pennsylvania, and that they were on their way to Canada ! There was no opportunity for further enquiry, as to the cause of this extraordinary emigration. But what is the reason of it ? Have not our Government Land enough. Why then do they suffer the colonial governments thus to inveigle the back-bone and sinew of our country — the hardy yeomanry, into their Province ? It was really an unpleasant sight, thus to observe enough of our healthy yeomanry to have peopled a whole town in Ohio or Michigan, turning their backs upon their own free country to settle in the dominions of a King. — Geneva Palladium May 25th
[these were some of the Pennsylvania-Deutsch who migrated to Waterloo area of Ontario 1807-1830]

The following is an extract from a paper published in the State of Maine :— "We have been informed, that in the Province of New Brunswick, 170 vessels are to be built this year. Labouring men are greatly in demand. The business of the city of St. John is said to be remarkably brisk — and trade never more prosperous."
A new ship called Aid, of upwards of 300 tons, and owned by Captain Alder, was launched on Saturday, from a new ship yard above the Bridge over St. Charles. Some difficulty was experienced in passing her through the draw bridge, and she reamined on shore above the bridge 48 hours. She is, we understand, built upon Mr. Annesly's plan of ship building ; the hull being held together nearly like the staves of a common barrel.
The large ship built at the Island of Orleans on the same slip as the Columbus is to be launched tomorrow the 16th inst. — Mercury
A number of the citizens of Montreal embarked here yesterday, in the Steam Boat New Swiftsure for Quebec, to witness the Launch of the large ship which is to take place there tomorrow. (the Baron Renfrew)
We understand that the new Steam Boat St. Lawrence, lately launched at Lachine, commenced running between that place and the Cascades, and in sailing and accomodations she fully answers every expectation which had been formed of her. This boat is likely to be very useful in towing boats and other river craft across Lake St. Louis, having already towed six boats at one time against a strong head-wind.

  On Thursday last, 568 Irish Emigrants, including women and children, arrived here [Montreal] in the Lady Sherbrooke Steam Boat and proceeded on their route to Upper Canada yesterday morning. These are the first of the 2000 for whom Governemnt have made arrangements in this country ; they are principally from the south of Ireland and are, we understand, to be located in the neighbourhood of the Rice Lake, near the lately settled townships in rear of Smiths Creek. They are accompanied by two medical men, who, we are informed also act in the capacity of superintendents. By habits of industry and good conduct these people may, under the fostering protection of the Government, become comparitively independent, in a country where local prejudices, oppresive rents, and precarious employment do not interfere to prevent their enjoying that portion of competence which renders the mind at ease, and affords a prospect of comfort to the rising generation, for whose future welfare no provision could be made in the country of their ancestors.

Poynter, R.A. ; Messrs, Hale, Tweedie, Gresler, and Robert Cairns junior ; Mr. Keys, Purveyors Department ; and about 100 invalids belonging to different regiments in the Canadas.
Another cargo of Emigrants arrived here [Montreal] on in the New Swiftsure on Saturday consisting of 145 men, 126 women, and 197 children, under the care of the Government ; they proceeded to the place of their destination in Upper Canada, accompanied by two medical gentlemen. There were a number of other Emigrants who arrived at the same time, but as they do not form a part of those for whom provision has been made by the colonial department, they will of course be obliged to pursue their course in the best manner they can.
For some time these people must bear many hardships ; the change of climate, change of provision, and commencement of an employment as widely different from that which they have been accustomed to, but which essentially necessary to their future existence, will all bear heavy upon them in the first instance ; they have however, a cheering prospect before them, for by industry and perseverance, they will be enabled to realize the means of a comfortable living.—
The remainder of the Irish Emigrants, to be forwarded to lands in Canada at Government expence, may be expected shortly, and if the plan adopted for their settlement be pursued to the end, there can be no doubt of its being attended with the most salutary effects.
The Steam Packet St. Andrews left Lachine for the Ottawa on Sunday last. When she arrived at St. Anns, the necessary observations of the rapids were taken, and the bouys were placed. This operation delayed her until Tuesday morning. She then ascended the rapids in 25 minutes, and arrived at Point Fortune early in the afternoon ; the day following she left St. Andrews at half-past nine o'clock, A.M. and arrived at Lachine at two o'clock the same day, from whence she has again started with a number of passengers.— For the present she is to make three trips per week, but as soon as circumstances permit, she is to ascend to Point Fortune and return in the same day. While on her way up, she had in tow a boat of 16 oars, in which was Sir Peregrine Maitland ; and yesterday she took a Durham Boat and a Bateaux, the wind on both occasions, not allowing them to proceed..— Spectator
Quebec, June 18th
The Large Ship (the Baron Renfrew)
We are sorry to state that the attempt to Launch the Large Ship this morning, at the Island of Orleans, failed ; at about 40 minutes before eight o'clock, she was put in motion and after gliding slowly along the ways a little more than half her own length, from the cradle giving way, or from some other cause, which we have not heard explained, she settled on the ways ; several attempts were made, to set her again in motion by hawsers from the Hercules and Laprairie Steam-boats, but without effect, the hawsers from the first boat snapping without in the least moving the ponderous mass. We understand however, her case is not considered desperate, and that it is hoped she may be got off at the evening flood, as she is still upon her ways and has sustained no visable injury. The concourse of spectators was perhaps less numerous than at the launch of the Columbus, the steam-boats were generally crowded with passengers, the Military bands attended, and the river was thronged with boats ; a little after nine, the company began to arrive in town, evidently chagrined at the unfortunate failure, not on account of their own disappointment, but in consideration of the anxiety which the builder and the proprietors must endure whilst the vessel remains in this state.— Mercury

Settlers.— Upwards of 1000 Settlers were brought to this port [Montreal] yesterday by the Steam Boats Lady Sherbrooke and LaPrairie.
The large Ship at the Island has not yet been got off ; the cause of her stopping, however, being now ascertained, preparations are making by lowering her ways, to effect her launch the next high tides ; when, there is no doubt, she will be safely put into her destined element.

Stolen or Strayed, about two days ago, a Bull Terrier, large head, stout built, shaggy haired, and of a whitey brown colour, answers to the name of Paddy. Whoever will give such information as to lead to the discovery of the said dog will be liberally rewarded, by applying at the office of this paper. — Montreal, June 25th 1825

It is said that 160 vessels had arrived at Miramichi on 10th May. There was a scarcity of timber owing to the lowness of the water in the rivers.

The Mary and Betty, Porteous, and Prince of Wales, Harbour, were to leave Dublin for Quebec with passengers about the end of May ; the ship Rodger Sewart, was loading at Greenock on the 10th for this port, and expected to sail about the 20th May ; the brig Messenger, Nixon, from Antigua for Quebec, with rum and sugar arrived at Halifax on the 9th June.
. . . . A letter from Richibucto of the 16th May, states that the brig William, of Whitehaven, from Scotland, with a cargo of dry goods, and several passengers, bound to that place, had been totally lost amongst the ice in the Gulf ; the crew and passengers, after being three days in the boats, during which one of the latter died, were picked up by a brig and carried to Miramichi.
The Baron of Renfrew:— We are happy to announce that the stupendous Vessel was safely launched this day at a little after 1 o'clock — The short notice given of the intention of making the attempt, prevented many from being near spectators, of its completion ; the greater part of the curious, were obliged to content thenselves with a view from the Batteries.
The Master of the Jane from Newfoundland has reported at the Post Office, that a dreadful conflagration had taken place at St. John's in that Island, but we have not learnt the particulars.

Walking Dress:
A pelisse of mazarine blue silk, made right to the form, and trimmed round the shoulders and back with raised welts, confined, at separate distances, by knots of the same, down the front of the skirt, gradually inclining towards bottom, which is finished by a puffing of silk.

  New Steam Boat:—
The Canadian lately built at Laprairie, intended to ply between that place and this city [Montreal], is now nearly finished, and will be put into operation in a few days. The model of the hull is similar to the Laprairie Steam Boat. Her engine is made upon an improved principle, and is described as combining strength with simplicity and usefulness. The great attention which has been paid to every part of this Boat, during her building, the neatness of the Cabin, and the general accomodations which she will possess, will render her more than commonly agreeable to parties of pleasure, or others, whose business requires them to pass between this and Laprairie.— The facility of crossing the river now afforded by the Steam Boats, and the prices demanded for the passage of the Market people being so low, the former disadvantages arising from distance, and other dangerous modes of conveyance are superceded and the more close connection of town and country is rendered highly advantageous to both, by the enterprising and public spirit of the proprietor J.M. Raymond Esquire, to whom much credit is due. As both the Canadian and Montreal Steam Boats, belonging to Mr. Raymond, the public will not be annoyed by the unpleasant consequences which frequently arise from an overtained rivalry.

The number of vessels laid down at the different ship-yards at this port, within a few weeks past amount to 17, and will average from 250 to 300 tons. This is a total not far short of the number built here last winter, and it is stated that timber, in considerable quantities, is preparing for carrying on this branch of business to a much greater extent at the close of the season.
A considerable number of the ships arrived this year have been greatly delayed in making the return voyage for want of sailors, a part of their men (and in some cases the whole) having deserted during the time of loading. The cause may be partly attributed to the very high wages given, £9 per month, or £15 for the run being commonly asked, and not frequently received, for sailors capable only of duty before the mast.
New York, June 28:—
Prince Murat [Achillies Murat, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte], who arrived at the Quarantine Ground in the brig Hesper, reached the city yesterday morning. He is an elegant young man apparently about 21 years of age. After a short stay with his uncle Bonaparte at Bordentown, he intends, we understand, to visit his elder brother in Florida, who is cultivating a large tract of land at that place.

The ship John Barry, with settlers, reported at hand, has been ashore on B—nitis Point, but got off without injury— the passengers are safe.
Navigation of the St. Lawrence:—
By a late arrangement by the proprietors of the Steam Boats St. Andrews and Perseverence, which ply between LaChine and Point Fortune, greater facilty is acquired in descending and ascending the River than has heretofore been the case ; as one boat arrives at the foot of the Vaudreuil Rapids, where she delivers her freight nad passengers to the other, which arrives within 150 feet of the one from LaChine ; thus avoiding the danger and delay arising from the rapids—such an arrangement will be very advantageous to the public, as by alternately moving from one Boat to the other, the distance between Point Fortune and LaChine can be run up and down in the same day.

The Master of the John Barry, arrived at this port on Wednesday last, reports that the day before he sailed, a vessel arrived at Cork with the crew of the large ship Columbus, she having foundered at sea.
The brig Saguenay, belonging to Quebec, supposed to have been lost last winter on the Coast of America, has since been heard of. She was driven out to sea, as stated in the American newspapers, but weathered the gale and subsequently got into port, from whence she has since sailed for Demerara, and is daily expected at Quebec.

Halifax, 20th June:—
The brig Trusty, Captain Finlay, sailed this morning for Calcutta, she is of the first class, and is uncommonly well equipped ; we anxiously hope this experiment of our merchants will prove highly successful. Hence at Halifax, Victory, Earnest, 14 days.
On Sunday, a young man named James Venter, a native of Scotland, and an apprentice on board the brig Janet, of Kilkaldy, while bathing near the little island off the Harbour of this city, was unfortunately drowned, although a good swimmer. . . . .

A number of vessels have come up, among which it is gratifying to notice the arrival of the Moffat and Juliana, East-Indiamen, from Canton, with Cargoes of tea, spices, &c. ; they are the first vessels of their description which have ever come to this port direct from the East-Indies. His M.S. Orestes, one of the trail [trial ?] Sloops, also arrived this day with specie for the Government.
The bark George, arrived yesterday from bristol, states that no account of the loss of the Columbia had been received there on the 28th, the day before she sailed. Captain Dales of the brig Nelly, arrived this morning from Portsmouth, however, confirms the report ; he read an account of in an English paper ; she sprung a leak in long. 14, and an accident occurring to her engine, it became impossible to keep her free ; she foundered shortly after the crew abandoned here, who were all safely picked up and arrived at Cork as stated by the Master of the John Barry.
Yesterday afternoon as a Horse and cart were conveying baggage on board the Steam Boat Laprairie the horse became restive in going down the hill and plunging with ungovernable fury went into the River, where he was drowned. The baggage was fortunately but with difficulty saved.
Coroner's Inquest:—
On Wednesday last an inquest was held on the body of John Kilbreth, a carter who with his horse was drowned that morning, opposite the Neptune Inn. The deceased was leading his horse into the river to drink, when he got beyond his depth, and by endeavouring to save his horse both were unfortunately drowned. The body of the man was taken out of the water a few minutes after, and removed to the Neptune Inn, where all efforts to restore animation proved useless. The verdict of the just was:—"Accidental death by drowning."— Herald

The New Ferry:—
We have been informed by some persons who have repeatedly passed in the Steam Boat William Annesley, to Isle-a-la-Pierre, which is now connected with the Shore opposite to Montreal, by a bridge, uniting solidity and convenience, that of all the ferries which serve for an entrance into this city from the southern bank of our noble river, the new ferry has most decidedly the preference. Nothing marks the truth of this assertation more than the number of persons who already frequent it, and who, one and all, express the greatest satisfaction at the arrangements made for the accomodation of the public. To cross from the city takes about fifteen minutes, and to return from Isle-a-la-Pierre to the city, about seven minutes.
The William Annesley traverses at present fourteen times in a day, between five in the morning and six in the evening ; but she is capable of going twenty times ; making ten trips going and returning. There is already a decent Canadian Tavern in the projected village on the other side of the river, and the buildings belonging to Mrs. Solomon, offer simple room and an excellent situation for the commodious Inn ; these buildings will without doubt, shortly be opened for the accomodation of the public.
A shed sixty feet long is erecting on the Island under which the country people coming to market may leave their horses and carts in security.

Nearly all the journeymen Tailors in London struck on Monday — their demand being that no work should be sent out to be done by women.
There are strange tastes in England. One rich man has lately set about collecting the halters in which malefactors have been hung — which ropes he arranges in festoons, labeled with the names of the sufferers.

Quebec, July 14th
The arrival in this port of two Ships from China, forms a remarkable epoch in the annals of Canadian commerce. The Moffatt and the Juliana are the first vessels that ever entered the St. Lawrence from the immense continent of Asia, the largest and most populous quarter of the world. They sailed from London on the 12th August last [1824], left Portsmouth on the 24th of that month, and arrived at Canton on the 24th January. On the 24th February they sailed for Quebec, kept company 20 days and separated off Java, met again off the Cape of Good Hope, separated, and arrived the same day off St. Helena. After leaving that Island they did not see one another till their arrival at Quebec, within a few hours of each other, a most extraordinary proof of good management and the perfection of the art on board both ships. The space traversed by them in ten months has been about 38,000 miles. The Moffatt is about 800 tons, the Juliana about 500 ; the former 9,941 chests of tea, the latter 5,900, forming in all 15,841 chests. Both vessels are in high order, and take cargoes from hence to London. . . . .

From the New York Commercial Advertiser (London dates to 6th June)
England:— In the House of Commons on the 3rd June, an interesting debate took place on the bill for the alteration of the Quarantine Laws, and on a grant of £200,000 "for compensating certain inhabitants of the United States for the loss sustained by the capture of slaves by the British Army." . . .

The large lumber ship Baron of Renfrew, it is expected will complete her cargo and be ready for sea by the 10th of August. She is in every respect a superior vessel to the Columbus, and it is thought will stand the sea much better. Her owners have purchased the small Steam-boat Experiment, and are transferring her engine to the Baron, where it is to be used for the purpose of working the pumps.

The Baron of Renfrew:— Upwards of 300 men are now engaged loading this enormous vessel, and ten horses are employed in raising the logs with the assistance of Pulley and tackle, from the ship's side. It is rather a novel spectacle to witness so many horses at work on a ship's deck, the same as if they were labouring in a field. Parties of pleasure in Pilot boats visit this vessel from Quebec almost every day, and as she lies at anchor opposite the Falls of Monmorenci, the visitors enjoy double gratification. We had an opportunity last week of observing a very interesting scene of this description ; a boat with a number of Ladies and Gentlemen arrived alongside the Baron, and after the company had been politely shown the interior of the vessel, and receiving that kind of hospitable treatment which the sons of the Ocean are so proverbial for bestowing, they descended the ponderous ribs of this huge specimen of Naval architecture, and got safely lodged in their small craft. On leaving the ship, some Gentlemen who played the clarinet, struck up the lively air of "Good night, and joy be we be ye a." at the conclusion of which they gave three hearty cheers which were returned by those on board the Baron. We have seldom felt sensations of so agreeable a nature as those ; Indeed it afforded ample room for repflection. It is expected that the loading of the Baron will be shortly completed and that she will sail about the 10th proximo.

Public Improvement:— Mr. Raymond the enterprising Proprietor of the Steam Boats Montreal and Canadian, have contracted for the building of a wharf of 100 feet in length, to be completed in 15 days, for the accomodation of the steam boats, and the public, on their arrival at Laprairie.
The Steam Boat Laprairie left Quebec at a quarter past seven o'clock on Saturday night, and notwithstanding a head wind all the way, anchoring the first night at the River Richelieu, stopping at Batiscan, Three Rivers, and Berthier to land passengers, and take in freight and wood, she arrived in Montreal at half past seven o'clock on Monday morning. The facilty with which this boat sails, the attention paid to passengers by the master and the general management under which she is conducted, render the Laprairie as desirable a mode of conveyance as any other on our river.
