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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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

Atlantic Steam Navigation Company
We have received a document containing a complete expose of the views of the Company, and they differ in some particulars from those already before the public, we propose to take a rapid glance at this great project.
The routes laid down are not exactly the same with those which have before appeared in the public prints. It is now proposed that steam ships shall sail from Valentia, in Ireland, twice in each month, at first, but ultimately every week ; — one, of the largest class, (1000 tons) for New York, touching at Halifax for fuel, and to meet a branch line from Quebec ; and another, of the first class, for the West Indies, touching at Fayal, in the Azores, for fuel, and thence proceeding to Antigua, where she will meet a branch from Trinidad, Oronoco, Guiana, and the Brazils. From Antigua she will proceed to Port Royal, in Jamaica, and return by Cape Nichols, Mole and Bermuda. From Jamaica a separate branch will run to Carthegena, and the Company's Prospectus states to the Magdalena, but will be prevented by the bar at the mouth of the river. It may, however, meets and communicate with the line of small draft steam boats, now establishing on the Magdalena by the enterprising Mr. Elvers. The depots of coals at Bermuda and Fayal are intended to be formed from the Cape Breton and Nova Scotia mines, thus opening another market for the minerla wealth of that fine colony. A depot might also be formed at New York, provided the American Government would allow the debenture upon such as are expended by the steam vessels. . . . . 3 additional paragraphs not extracted nor transcribed

The Indians:— The four Lorette Chiefs arrived here on Tuesday evening, the 27th instant, in the Caledonia. They speak in the highest terms of England, of the kindness of the people and the generous treatment they met with from Government. It is not probable that in any other Country individuals could be found to give themselves so much trouble for poor strangers, from motives of beneficence alsone, as we have every reason to believe, some Gentlemen in London have taken in favor of these Indians. — Old Gazette

A very fine Bark, called Leonidas, was launched yesterday morning from Mr. Carman's wharf, at Diamond Harbour, of the burthen of 380 Tons, she was the first vessel ever launched of that size from the same place ; and what rendered the sight more gratifying, it was generally supposed from the height of the fall, that it was impossible to succeed ; however we are happy to state that she was consigned to her element in very fine style, to the great amusement of the bystanders.— Com.


Launched:— The fine new barque Charlotte and Maria, of 371 tons register, was launched from Messrs. Robert Wood & Co.'s ship yard, St. Michael's Cove. — The vessel is generally allowed by competent judges, to be one of the finest and most substantial built ships that has probably been built in Canada for many years. She moved into her element in a most majestic style and was safely moored opposite the Cove, in order to take in her cargo. . . . . — Old Gazette

The body of Lewis Foy Esq. who was so unfortunately drowned, by falling from the Steam Boat Quebec, in her passage to Montreal, on the night of the 18th instant, having been found was brought hither on the 28th, and an inquest being assembled, the Coroner, J.G. Thompson Esq., proceeded to investigate the circumstances by which the deceased came to his death. It appeared from the testimony of Mr. Murdock McKenzie, of this city that the deceased and himself were on board the Quebec Steam Boat on the 18th inst., and had passed the evening together, that about 11 o'clock when off Cap Santé, they went upon deck, he went towards the stern of the vessel and left the deceased standing at the cabin door, shortly after he heard a scream from some person and ran to the cabin door, not seeing Mr. Foy there, he considered that he had fallen over board and that it was he who screamed— Witness called out to stop the Boat, one of the people came up and enquired what was the matter, witness told him what he suspected had happened, the man then said the Captain was in bed, and went to call him, in less than a quarter of an hour the Captain appeared and was requested to stop the Boat, but refused to do so, saying that the Engineer was forward, and that before the Boat could be stopped, which was going at the rate of ten knots an hour with the tide, she would be too far off to afford any assistance to the deceased. The Boat was not stopped, the witness heard the deceased scream but twice, the night was very dark, and it was impossible to see any thing on the water— the witness had further stated that Mr. Foy had drank two glasses of brandy and water, and that he did not appear to be in any way affected by them— he also deposed that there was no railing on the left side of the vessel and gangway, there are steps there, cut into the deck, he supposed that owing to the want of a railing the deceased his feet having slipped, fell into the water,— he described the the place as being exceedingly dangerous, and had no doubt, but that he had gone there he also would have fallen overboard.— When he saw Mr. Foy the last time there was no person standing near him. The other evidence called was Mr. Manly, son-in-law of the deceased, who merely identified the body and spoke to its being found.
The jury accordingly found that Lewis Foy Esq., from the insufficiency of the Steam Boat Quebec, to protect passengers from accidents, and from the negligence of the master and crew, accidently fell from the side of the vessel into the river St. Lawrence, and was there drowned. They further returned that the said steam boat was the cause of the death of the deceased, and further valued the boat at £1590.
This unhappy affair has also attracted the attention of the Grand Jury, which yesterday terminated its labours with the sitting of the Crimnal Term, and made a Presentment on the subject. The evidence taken by the Grand Jury differed in some points from that given by Mr. McKenzie, in as much as the Captain was on deck, in the fore part of the ship and not in bed as Mr. McKenzie supposed. The man who went to look for him went forward, and not to the cabin ; but this does not alter the material part of the evidence, and nothing was produced in any way tending to exculpate the Captain, whose conduct still appears in a very reprehensible light. The gangway of the boat is said to be, by the Grand Jury, presented as the cause by which the deceased came to his death, and was valued at the sum of £50, which is offered as a deodand.— The presentment was not read, as the Chief Justice we understand, decided that the Court was not competent to enter upon the further investigation of the case, but, we are informed, that His Honor received it, and declared his intention of bringing it before the Executive, that the regulation of our steam-packets may prove the subject of Legislative provision.
It is also said, that further proceedings will be taken by the Attorney General founded on the Coroner's Inquest, as well as on the presentment from the Grand Jury.— Mercury

The Weather, for the last five or six days, has been unusually fine for the Season ; indeed we have seldom experienced more delightful days in the month of June, than those with which we have been favoured since Saturday last.

Shipping Intelligence:—
Only nine vessels have entered in the Custom House for loading, from 22nd September to the 1st October, the clearances within the same time amount to 31. There remain now in port 116, of which 38 are loading for London ; and 12 for Liverpool. The number of vessels entered this season to the 1st October is 695, Cleared 614. Of the arrivals, 61 have made the second trip from England and upwards of 30 may be expected this month from London and Liverpool, which with several others from various ports on the first and second trip, will make a total at the close of navigation of not less than 750. The clearances up to the same period may be estimated at 800 ; as little less than 50 sail of vessels will have been launched at Quebec and Montreal, during the season.
An arrival at New York, 22nd September, reports having passed the wreck of a vessel 31st August 44, 30 long. 30 W 1st September saw the surface for several miles covered with lumber and broken spars. The arrivals at that Port and Boston about the same date, have generally experienced very bad weather for the 7th to the 12th of the month ; some of them have suffered considerable damage.
Halifax, September 14
H.M. Brig Sappho, Captain Canning, arrived in distress, having lost the head of her foremast, and foretop-mast, on the 26th ult. on her passage to Bermuda— one man was unfortunately killed, and four wounded, by the falling of the spars. The Sappho struck on the sisters Rocks in coming into the harbour on Friday night, but the weather being moderate was soon off again.
The Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Nova Scotia, may be expected here in the course of this month— His Lordship will probably take passage in the Tweed, sloop of war, which vessel we understand would leave England about the 24th of August.— Free Press

  The weather has for a short time past been unusually warm for the season. The Thermometer has risen almost to 80 Farenheit in shade, but there have been heavy dews at night and the atmosphere through the day is moist and unhealthful. The high mountains in the lower parts of this Province were covered with snow as early as the 22nd ultimo.
By a public advertisement by this day's Gazette it will be seen that the out houses, timber and other building stock, of the Ship Yard at the Island of Orleans, where the large timber Ships Columbus and Baron of Renfrew were lately constructed, is offered for sale. The very great losses which the persons engaged in this speculation appear to have met with, have, no doubt, now led them to abandon it.— Old Gazette
Erie Canal.— This stupendous undertaking has been completed, and Boats can now proceed from the city of New York to Lake Erie without any other interruption than what is common in all Canal Navigation. The event is to be celebrated in many parts of the state of New-York, in a manner sufficient to testify their satisfaction of the completion of the work which will reflect credit on the liberality and patriotism of the most wealthy and enterprising portion of the United States.
The following letter announcing this circumstance was transmitted to the president of the Board at Albany, by one of the commissioners.
To the Hon. Stephen Van Rensselaer, President of the Board of Canal Commissioners
The unfinished parts of the Erie Canal will be completed, and in a condition to admit the passage of boats on Wednesday, the 26th day of October next.
It would have been gratifying to have accomplished this result as early as the first of September, but embarrassments which I could not control, have delayed it.
On this grand event, so auspicious to the character and wealth of the citizens of the state of New-York, permit me to congratulate you.
I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient humble servant,
Wm. C. Bouck,
Canal Commissioner

The Wellend Canal.— We have often seen descriptions in the newspspers, of the United States, of the rapid growth of villages, in that country. It appears to us that we have a case in point, in this District equal to any thing they can produce in that extensive country— on the summit level of the Wellend Canal. We believe there was not twelve months ago one House. On that beautiful plane there are now upwards of one hundred dwelling Houses, inhabited by upwards of 500 people ; besides labourers on the Canal, there are black-smiths, tailors, shoe makers, &c. there is a good market— with a constant supply of the necessities of life, a number of merchant shops, alias stores, with assortments equal to any in the country. The Editor has an opportunity of viewing the progress made on this stupendous undertaking, and was much gratified to find the soil so well adopted to facilitate the work— it is as far as has been dug a solid clay, without any spring or veins of sand or stone ;— the method adopted on the summit level, is to plough up, and carry off in wagons the clay, this, has been repeated to the depth of ten or twelve feet, and no obstruction has yet appeared to hinder this method, being pursued. From the level of Chippawa, on the head waters of the Twelve-Mile Creek for about a mile, the Canal is nearly completed, the greatest depth of which is seventeen feet, all sold clay. The plan adapted by the contractors is to give hands a certain sum of monthly wages we believe 10 dollars, and a dollar and a half for thier board wekly ; the men thus are at liberty to board wherever they please. The numerous houses erected, although not extensive, can accommodate the labourers. The weather has been favourable, no rain, nothing to interrupt the work.— Gleaner

The Fog.— Since our last the Fog has returned, equally dense as it was last week. The papers of Upper Canada, and these of Quebec all mention that these places have been visited with this troublesome guest. It is still believed that the fog is produced by fire in the woods, as the timber in many parts of the country is stated to be burning by which serious losses have been sustained.

[From the Quebec Mercury]
Sir,— In your paper of the 1st inst. there appears a statement of the proceeding of the inquest held on the body of L. Foy Esq. who unfortunately fell overboard from the Quebec Steam Boat under my command, and as it is not quite as explicit as I could wish, I beg to offer you some observations thereon as well as my reasons for having acted as I did.
On the night of the 18th ult. between 11 and 12 o'clock, when being very dark and blowing hard, we were running through the Richelieu, when the first waiter Peter Flannagan came forward with a lanthorn in his hand and asked if the Captain were there. I replied yes, what do you want ? I believe Sir, there is a man overboard ! — When did he fall ? About a quarter of an hour ago. I immediately exclaimed lower down the boat, and ran aft, when I encountered Mr. McKenzie, to whom I said, when did he fall overboard, Sir ? I did not hear his reply, but turned to the Mate and said, what does he say ? He says twelve or fifteen minutes, Sir, and added there is no use lowering the boat down such a night as this, for we shall never find him ; I was of the same opinion and countermanded the order I had given, as I found Mr. McKenzie's time corroborated the waiter's reply, upon which I had placed very little credit. Mr. McKenzie has stated that I would not stop the boat and gives as my reason, the Engineer being forward. He possibly may have requested me to stop the boat, but I certainly did not make that [churlish] reply, neither do I recollect to have entered into any explanation with him on the subject. The cause of my not stopping, was the boat being in the Richelieu, where I could not take the steam off her as she would have lost her steerage-way when I must have gone on shore on the south side of the river, at nearly high water upon a spring tide for there was no anchorage, neither could I round her to run back for want of room.
From the time Mr. Foy fell overboard to the time I heard of the melancholy accident, we must have shifted our position, from the effects of steam and tide, nearly four miles, but allowing the latter to act equally upon the unfortunate gentleman and the boat, he must have been not more than two miles astern—say one. It then becomes actually necessary that my baot, had I lowered her down, should gain one mile ahead, against a tide running nearly, if not quite, six knots an hour. Now as my boat will not pull more than from three to four miles an hour in still water, and it was at that time flowing hard with a somewhat heavy cross sea, it is clear that she could not have maintained her position over the ground, is it likely that she would have drifted in a line with the boat keeping in view that he fell overboard between Cap Santé and the Point du Platon ?
It has been stated that I was in bed, Mr. McKenzie should have contradicted this report, as he accompanied the Steward, Dennis McCarthey, & Waiter, Peter Flannagan to my cabin and found that I was not there ; but even if I had, Mr. Editor, is it a heinous offence to retire to rest at 11 o'clock at night ?
There has been a fatal error in this business, Sir, it was in not having given a proper alarm at the moment, for certainly no circumstances could be more propitious excepting the want of day-light and less wind, for saving the life of a fellow creature under such circumstances, as I was precisely where I ought to have been, the Pilot was on my right hand, the Mate on my left, with the Engineer behind us and three or four of the crew on deck, the vessel being at the same time between Cap Santé and the Platon where there is plenty of room and good anchorages.
The report of the inquest appears to throw some odium on the crew, but as I did not ask any one's advice there can be no blame attached to any person, I acted from the impulse at the moment as I judged best for the security of the vessel committed to my charge ; if I have erred, I am extremely sorry for it— it can be attributed to nothing but an error in judgement to which the most enlightened are liable.
  I am Mr. Editor,
Your most Obedient
Humble Servant,
  Thomas P. Attrill

On Thursday last arrived from Halifax, His Majesty's brig Rifleman, Captain Webb, having on board Admiral Lake, and several gentlemen of his routine. She was accompanied by His Majesty's ship Menai, Captain Stewart, and a tender. The Admiral, we understand, has visited the principal harbours on the coast between this and Halifax.

Reported Loss of the Baron of Renfrew
The following is the substance of information communicated to us by a passenger in the Sir Francis Burton arrived on Tuesday from Halifax. We sincerely hope that it will prove unfounded.. The Sir F. B. had put into Gaspé:—
Gaspé, 1st October 1825
"A brig bound to Quebec put in here in distress, 25th instant [Sept], the Captain of which reports that he saw the large Timber Ship Baron of Renfrew, near the Grand Bank broken up and floating in several huge detached pieces, and part of the crew on each— would have attempted to render assistance but the danger of doing so made it impossible, owing to the violence of the weather and the immense pieces [of] wreck floating in every direction.
The Baron of Renfrew was seen by the Jasper arrived at Boston on the 16th September. Of the vessels arrived at this port, only two crossed the Banks after the 22nd and these report they saw "nothing of the Baron.— Old Gazette

The Hercules, Captain Brush, Steam tow-boat, has been siezed by His Majesty's Customs at this port. The reasons alledged, as we have heard, among others, are that she had no Register, was partly American property and was not commanded by an English subject. Some opposition having been made to the officers of the Customs we understand that a serjeant and twelve men of the 71st foot have been placed on board. Her cargo, partly composed of potash for vessels just at their departure has also been seized.

     Navigation of the Hudson:— It is stated in the Albany Patriot, that a plan for improving the navigation of the river below that place is to be submitted soon to the citizens for their support. The intention of the projectors of this plan is to connect the islands on the west side of the river by solid and permanent embankments, so as to afford a deep channel on the west shore round and beyond the overslaugh, closed by locks at each end to keep out currents and tides.— Com.

We regret to have to announce the loss of the elegant packet ship Crawford, captain Rathbone. This intelligence is communicated by captain Lattermar, of the schooner Ardent arrived at Baltimore from Key West. Captain L. states that the Crawford was lost on the Bahama Banks when seven days out from New York. The ship had been previously dismasted. The Crawford was owned by Captain Holmes of this city [New York], and was a regular packet between this port and New Orleans.
We have no account of the passengers and crew. The ship sailed from this port on the 24th of September.— Com. Adv.

Snow fell for the first time this season, to the depth of nearly three inches. The wind which was strong at north east all the day and this morning brought up some of the vessels, which are due. The weather, however, was comparatively mild, and the snow will disappear soon. It is very probable from the general warmth of the past summer that shall have a fine open fall.— Old Gazette

  Our harbour presents this day, a very unusual appearance for the season ; there being upwards of twenty schooners and a brig now in Port, a circumstance which has rarely been witnessed in Montreal on the 3rd of December. These vessels were chiefly loaded with Fish, Coals and Salt, and will immediately after discharging, proceed to their winter quarters. The Tow Boat Hercules left this yesterday, and all the other Steam Boats (with the exception of the Laprairie, which is expected from Quebec after her last trip this season, today) have repaired to their respective stations, until the opening of navigation next year will permit their resuming business. The Canadienne was taken to William Henry [Sorel] on Thursday ; since she has ceased running the intercourse with Laprairie has been rendered both difficult and unpleasant, as the passengers are obliged to cross in open boats.
New Brunswick Sufferers:—
Boston has done most nobly. The Centinel of Wednesday informs us that $6,800 have already been collected ; that $2,000 are in collection, and several committees have not yet made their reports. The whole subscriptions will, it is stated by the above journal, fall little short of $10,000.
Philadelphia has a length taken the field, and in a manner the most honourable to its character and advantageous to the sufferers.

  Quebec 1st December
The Season:— It is rather a remarkable fact that the river is now perfectly open and that there is not a piece of floating ice to be seen. There remain still in port ready for sea, the William, Johnson, and Thetis, Green. The Jean Baptiste, Brady, sailed yesterday for London, but as the wind shortly afterwards blew from the East and increased to a gale in the night, and still blows strong, it is probable that she has put back to St. Patricks.
The brig President, Coulson, from Jamaica which passed Halifax, N.S. on the 3rd ultimo, for this port, has arrived.
The William, Johnston [sic], put back a secnd time on Monday night last, she has discharged a considerable part of her cargo of wheat, and we are informed will sail on the first change of wind.— Old Gaz.
Quebec 3rd December
The navigation of our river has this year been open for a longer season than usual ; upwards of thirty-one weeks have elapsed between the arrival of the first ships on the 24th April and the departure of the last, the Thetis, (which will probably sail this day,) even now no ice is to be seen and the Laprairie steam boat arrived yesterday from Montreal, without encountering any impediment in her passage down.— Mercury

  Lieut. Baldock of H.M. Sloop Swallow, having been, (with part of his crew) successful in saving the brig Schulkitt from fire at N. York, has been highly complimented by the different Insurance Companies of that city, and the owners of the Brig, who have sent Lieut. B. a sum of money to be distributed amongst his crew and presented himself with a piece of plate. The correspondence on this subject reflects the highest credit on the parties concerned.
Quebec 12th December
The navigation of the St. Lawrence opposite this city was completely closed on the 9th December instant.
The pilots who took down the Thetis and William, the last vessels which left this port, and which sailed on Saturday week last, have returned, having left the vessels all well below Green Island.
We understand that the ship Canadian, the Canada Ship Building Company's vessel, is a Isle-aux-Coudres, as reported early last week. She has lost an anchor and part of a cable, but has received no damage, and was prevented from going to sea, as we are informed, by the sailors refusing to work the ship. She will winter at Isle-aux-Coudres, where there is a very good harbour, and where vessels have before safely wintered.
The following is a detail of the cargoes of two vessels arrived about the 20th November, at Halifax, N.S. from the United States. George Henry, New York, 3,622 bushels wheat ; 600 bushels Indian Corn — William Penn, New York, 238 bbls, and 5,895 bushels wheat and 602 bags Indian Corn.— Old Gazette
