Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1826

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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1826.

The brig Skipsey, Reed, late a trader to this port, was abandoned in a sinking condition, on the 30th April, in lat. 47, long. 20, on her passage from London to Miramichi ; crew taken off by the Isaac Hicks arrived at New York. The Skipsey sank a few minutes after the boat left her ; they had not time to save her water ; only one barrel of pork and — bags of bread were brought off.
Belfast, 20th April — Advertised for Quebec with passengers, Fanny, Alexander, to sail 10th May ; Thomas —, Watson, on the 25th -do.- and Donald, Gowan, (— expected from Charleston) to leave about the middle of June.

Duel.— A meeting took place at Champlain, in the United States, between Mr. W—r, a barrister practising with considerable success in our Courts, and Mr. S—y, a young Gentleman, studying the Law, in this City [Montreal]. Shots were exchanged, when Mr. S's ball struck the top of one of Mr. W's fingers, on the pistol hand, penetrated his clothing and left a slight black mark on his right side. Mr. W's ball did not take effect. The friends of the parties then interfered, and after a satisfactory explanation this unpleasant affair was adjusted, and the principals arrived in town on Thursday evening. The cause of the misunderstanding, we are informed, arose from some observation, which Mr. W. is alleged to have made in an address to a jury, on a recent trial, in the result of which, a particular friend of Mr. S. was materially interested, but whose professional calling forbade him to seek redress in the way which those who call themselves men of honour consider the most proper. We are told that the parties intended to settle the matter nearer home, but the civil authority understanding their intentions, they were bound in heavy penalties to keep the peace within His Majesty's dominions, and accordingly they went beyond the line.

Dr. Franklin [Benjamin Franklin] left 4444 dollars [$4444.44] to the city of Philadelphia to be loaned to young mechanics in sums not exceeding 2 0 dollars [$260 ?], to one at 5 percent interest. This fund has increased 13,152. Dr. F. calculated that in 100 years the fund would amount to 580,140, of which about 500,000 were to be appropriated to public purposes, and the rest remain to accomodate and accumulate as before.

On Saturday sennight (seven nights / one week), a beautiful ship of about 330 tons, called Chieftain, belonging to James Miller Esq., was safely launched from Johnson's ship yard.
On Saturday last, a fine ship of about 350 tons, called the Erie, belonging to Messrs. Gillespie, Moffatt & Co., was launched from Young's ship yard. In consequence of the ways not being laid far enough into the river, she received some injury.— Gazette

We understand the Duke of Saxe Weimar has taken passage in the ship Pacific, Capt. Crocker, which sails (from New York) for Liverpool on the 14th inst.

Messrs. Macnider & B. Gibb, arrived here (Montreal) on Sunday, they were passengers in the Canada from Liverpool (to New York).

Colonel Bye (By), of the Royal Engineers, has been in Montreal some days. (Lieut.-Col. John By and his family arrived at Quebec aboard the bark Endeavour on May 30th and continued to Montreal about the Steam Boat New Swiftsure, on June 1st.) The object of this officer's visit to Canada, is, we understand, to construct and superintend the completion of a Canal intended to be cut between Kingston in the upper Province, and the Ottawa River, a work which will greatly increase the prosperity of this country. When this and the Wellend Canal will be finished, there will be an uninterrupted line of navigation from the upper Lakes to the Ocean, which will draw the commerce of the extensive Western country through these provinces ; as the facility of transporting property by this route will be infinitely superior to that of the N.York Canal, independently of the advantage which it will afford our fellow subjects in Upper Canada for making their remittances to the cities of Montreal and Quebec. But another transport benefit will be derived from this intended improvement should this country at any future period (which we hope is very remote) be engaged in warfare with the U.States. Arms, and military stores of all descriptions can be forwarded with safety from one extremity of Canada to the other, without any risque of their falling into the enemy's hands, as was the case during the last war, by which both the government and individuals, suffered materially. As this great work will be undertaken, and carried on by the British Government, there is no necessity for saying that it will be well and speedily executed, and the vast sum which will necessarilly be expended in the country will be a seasonable relief to the inhabitants in these times of pecuniary distress. We are informed that no less that between two and three hundred thousand pounds sterling have been appropriated for the accomplishment of this desirable purpose, for which set of bounty towards Canada, (just to please our Brother of the Spectator) we feel no disposition of blaming either the Canadians, or the economical gentlemen of the House of Assembly, as he insinuated in his truly independent paper of Saturday.

[Col. By superintended the building of the canal to connect Kingston on Lake Ontario, up the Rideau to the join the settlement near the Chaudière falls of the Ottawa River. That settlement became known as "Bytown." In 1847 it was incorporated as a Town, and on December 18th 1854, was renamed Ottawa. Ottawa was selected as the Federal Capital of Canada by Queen Victoria in 1857.]

Prince Edward's Island, May 30.— The Mary, Leblanc, arrived this morning in four days from Halifax — She touched country harbour where Mr. Gainford, a passenger, saw the master of a Workington vessel, who was put on shore there by an American vessel, which had taken him off Sable Island where his vessel had been cast away. She was loaded with salt and bound for Halifax, but our informant forgot her name. He was further informed by the same person, that previous to his leaving Sable Island, a ship from Dublin bound to Quebec with 115 passengers, had struck against the shoals which extend to a considerable distance from the Island and was a complete wreck. Did not know her name — seven hands were lost by the swamping of a boat in attempting to reach shore. When the master of the Workington vessel left the Island about 80 passengers were still on the wreck, which was at a great distance from the shore. — There is no doubt that this vessel is the ship Nassau, from Dublin for this port with settlers, which had been for some time expected, and was reported to have been lost on St. Paul's Island.
      note: It was the Nassau, see also

On Saturday last, an articled seaman named William McCutcheon, on board the barque General Wolfe, now lying in port, was convicted of having carried his clothes and bedding away, with the intention of deserting. He was sentenced to be imprisoned fifteen days, with a provise that should the General Wolfe sail before the expiration of that period, he be put on board the said vessel.

From the N.York Albion, 10th June
Wreck of the British brig Skipsey.— On the night of the 20th April the ship Isaac Hicks, Captain Moison, of New York, in lat. 47, long. 20W fell in with the above vessel in a sinking condition, took off the crew and brought them to New York. On the passage, the crew of the Skipsey was called on to assist in working the vessel that had taken them off the wreck, which order three of them refused to comply with, and one being very insolent, Captain Moison ordered corporal punishment to be inflicted on him. On the arrival of the Isaac Hicks in this port, the man who had received the punishment, prosecuted Captain William Moison in the Marine Court, and recovered 50 dols. 43 dols. expenses. It is not a part of the plan of our paper of our paper to impugn the Tribunals of this country ; we therefore make no comment on the verdict of the Court alluded to, but content ourselves with giving the following letter from H.M. Consul to Captain Moison. We are happy to say that the part taken by Mr. Buchanan on this occasion, has drawn forth the most unqualified approbation of the whole community.
BRITISH CONSULATE, New York, 5th June, 1826
Sir,— I regret you should have met so ungrateful a return for your successful and humane efforts, in saving the lives of the master and crew of the British brig Skipsey. Your generous conduct, is not requiring renumeration for the support you afforded the crew so long on board your ship, as also the terms in which Captain Reid spoke to me of your uniform sympathy and kindness, demand from me this public expression of my thanks.
The fine and costs to which you have been subjected, by the ungrateful and scandalous conduct of one of the crew, whose life you saved. I feel it my duty to discharge, assuring you of the just feeling of respect your conduct calls forth.
I remain, sir, your obedient servant,     
James Buchanan     

Melancholy Consequence of the long drought.      (Quebec)
From every part of this district we hear the most lamentable comlaints of the crops. One farmer has acquainted us that, in a piece of meadow land, where in former years he used to cut nearly 4000 bundles of hay, it is his opinion he will not have any crop, and that if rain does not speedily come to the relief of the pasturage, he will be obliged to turn his cattle into the place fenced off as a meadow. The grain crops are actually perishing for want of moisture, and unless providence in the plentitude of its bounty does not interfere the prospects before us are alarming in the extreme.— We are now beginning to feel the effects of the depreciation of trade in England ; the recent failures there, have deprived many Canadian merchants of the resources they formerly possessed, which has reduced the circulation of money in these provinces lower thanit has been known for the last 20 years.— Although this is a gloomy picture, yet it is not only a true one, but a darker shade may still be added. From the appearance of our country at this advanced season, there is no cause for expecting an abundant harvest, but on the contrary, there is great reason to doubt that the supply of provisions for the ensuing winter will be insufficient for the consumption of our population !!!

Small Pox.— We hear that a young man 18 years of age by the name of Pepin has died yesterday at St. Leonard, Longue Pointe, that a sister of his, a little younger, is not expected to live and that several children are affected in the neighbourhood with that complaint.— We have had some reports of the disease prevailing on the other side of town. Parents and guardians of children not already vaccinated ought not to neglect any longer the only specific known previous to the introduction in this City of that dreadful disease.— Canadian Spectator

Boat Races.— A few days ago, the boats belonging to the brigs Ontario, and St. Lawrence, now lying in this harbour, were matched against each other, to run from the outlet of the Canal to a given point, opposite to the New Market, and back. They were each manned by five expert Oarsmen belonging to their respective ships' companies and steered by the Captains of the vessels to which the boats belonged.— The race was well contested, and the dexterity of the rowers was the admiration of the spectators. After a hard tug up the stream, in returning, the victory was on the side of the Ontario's boat, which arrived at the starting point a short time before its opponent.


In Sheffield, on the 26th May, by the Rev. Mr. Whitewell, after a tedious courtship of six evenings, Miss Sally Buzzill, 13, to Mr. James Call, 25, both of Hatley.

Extract of a letter from Mr. William Hudson, to his father Captain Hudson, superintendent of Sable Island, now in Halifax, dated —
May 15, 1826
"On Thursday night, April 27, the brig Traveller, Capt. Penrice, from Liverpool for Halifax, with a cargo of salt &c., was cast away on the outer end of the N.E. bar, and on Saturday following, the master and crew got safe on shore in two boats, about half a mile below the middle house. We instantly used out best endeavours to get the boats secured, and the clothing &c. of the people brought to the House ; making them all as comfortable as possible. Capt. P. wishing to proceed to Halifax with the least possible delay, we assisted his Carpenter in fitting out one of the boats for that purpose. We have been completely round the Island ' but found nothing of the wreck, excepting some few small pieces.
"On Saturday the 13th inst. saw a ship on the N.W. Bar, and instantly endeavoured to ascertain her information :— Two boats, crowded with people, were seen coming from her— 37 of whom got on shore ; but 7 (5 men and 2 women) unfortunately perished in the surf. The ship was bound from Ireland for Quebec ; with 140 passengers upwards of 80 including the Captain, were left on board : and the long boat being stove on the beach, it was indeed most dreadful to see men women and children, to whom we could then give no assistance. On Monday May 15th, sent two boats off hoping to save the unfortunate people yet on the wreck ; which is a considerable distance from the land — as far as little Island. We shall look anxiously for relief."
The ship was the Nassau, Captain Kenny from Dublin, with passengers only . .

(Montreal) Steam Boat Accident.— On Wednesday last as the Steam Boat Edmund Henry was on her passage from this City to Laprairie, she struck against a rock on the edge of the channel, which entered her bottom, and admitted the water in such quantities, as to render it necessary for her to return to port with the greatest expedition, the pumps being insufficient to keep her clear. She sunk almost immediately after she arrived in the harbour. The steam boat William Annesley, which was also on her way to Laprairie at the time the above accident occurred, endeavoured to get along-side the E. Henry, in order to render assistance, which was called for by the passengers on board the E. Henry, but in doing so, an accident happened to her machinery which obliged her to make for the shore as soon as possible. We hear the Edmund Henry will be obliged to go to Quebec for repairs, but the damage sustained by the other can be remedied in a day or two.
It is to be regretted that there is no dock in this place where Steam vessels could be repaired when accidents befall them, as it is not only a great expence to the owners to be under the neccessity of sending them to Quebec, but an inconvenience to the public, at this season of the year particularly.

The Amity, Johnson, arrived 14th inst. from Bristol, fell in with a great number of icebergs on the Banks, the latter end of May, which she cleared with great difficulty. The Brighton, Roman and Bolivar, at New York, also fell in with large quantities of ice about the 1st inst. on the Newfoundland banks, and were detained five or six days by it. Some icebergs were ashore in 35 fathoms water.
Halifax (N.S.) June 1.— The schooner Two Brothers, returned last night from Sable Island, with 95 of the survivors from the ship Nassau, from twenty to thirty still remain on the Island ; we are happy to hear that none of the passengers were lost but the seven which perished in the first boat. The Brothers has gone for the remainder.

The Weather.— Little or no variation in the weather has been experienced by us for the last week— the air, in general, has been cool and pleasant, and the thermometer arriving at 80 on one occasion.— The average has been 60.— This day affords us some indications of rain, which, no doubt, will contribute to realize our hopes in the improvement of agricultural concern. The vegetation, hitherto, has been rapid and luxuriant. In the gardens of this neighbourhood, considerable damage, however has been occasioned by the ravages of the black fly and grub worm.— Kingston Chronicle, 16th June

Another detachment of the 79th regiment arrived here from York, on Sunday, under the command of Lieutenant Grubb, on their route to Montreal. The detachments of the Royal Artillery, from Drummonds Island and Amherstburgh, arrived also on that evening by the same conveyance.— Kingston Chronicle, 16th June

The body of Patrick Dignam, a private of the 68th who was drowned while swimming between Cedar Island and the Fort, was picked up a few days ago. An inquest, of course, was held upon it, when the jury returned their verdict of "accidental death by drowning." .— Kingston Chronicle, 16th June

Quebec, June 24th, 1826
The brig Carrington, which has been engaged under contract from Mr. W. Stephenson, merchant, as a Colonial vessel, and by him fitted out with a neat, and for the size of the vessel, singularly commodious cabin, will, we understand, sail in the course of next week, on a cruise to the Bay of Chaleurs, Gaspé, &c. Six small brass guns have been placed on board, merely as a saluting battery, and her crew is to be assisted by a detachment of men from one of the regiments in the garrison.

The passengers, 120 in number, on board of the Nassau, Kenny, from Ireland for this port, wrecked on Sable Island, have all been saved except seven. More arrived on the 3rd inst. at Halifax : they were [ver] distressed, and subscriptions were generously [provided] by the merchants of Halifax for their relief.

The steam-boat Le Canadien which was damaged by fire at Laprairie, was re-launched last Saturday from the place where she was drawn up for the purpose of being repaired. She has had twelve or fifteen feet added to her length, and her name changed to The Waterloo.
Lat Friday evening, between nine and ten o'clock, owing to the darkness of the night, the steam-boats New Swiftsure and Hercules ran against each other near the wharf at William Henry [Sorel]. The former received considerable damage, having her right wing nearly carried away ; the latter had her cutwater and figure-head carried away, and one of her anchors broken. The Hercules was coming out and the New Swiftsure was going in.

From the circumstances of the clearances which have taken place at Quebec, and the departure of vessels from this port, partially loaded, as we are creditably informed, it must leave the disponding Lumber merchant in a most forlorn hope. A few years ago the editor of this paper gave an essay upon the system of lumbering, which at this time might be looked upon as prophecy ; the principle was scouted as visionary, and the popular voice, proped [sic] by the oracles of Authority, made it prudent for the editor not to urge those convictions of his, which were, that it was better for the industrious farmer to cultivate his farm than yearly cast his hard earnings upon the waters. The principle then advocated was, that in every township where lumbering was persued, the farms universally went to ruin, the morals of the people were undetermined, and the education of youth were entirely neglected— and that, was this deceptive business less attended to, School-houses, Churches and cultivated fields, would soon usurp the place of barren fields and despoiled forests.

The Steamboats Annesley and Edmund Henry have both been repaired and are now plying regularly between this [city and] Lapraire. The Edmund Henry, from the extra power of her machinery is said to be capable of ascending the rapids from this to Laprairie in a shorter space of time than any boat that has ever been employed upon that line.
Steam Boat Laprairie.— An evil report has within a few days since been in circulation that this Boat had met with a very serious disaster in her trip from Quebec to Kamouraska. To those who may have heard the report and not of heard to the contrary, we are happy to inform, that she has since arrived here without having received any injury, except what may have been inflicted by public rumour.
On Tuesday last, as the steam boat Richelieu was going into William Henry [Sorel], a boy in making an attempt to jump on board before she got close to the wharf, fell into the river, and would have been drowned, had it not been for the humane and prompt assistance of Mr. Martelle, Steward of the boat, who plunged in and rescued him from a watery grave.— Gazette

Fatal Accident.— Yesterday morning about five o'clock William McKutcheon, a sailor on board the Steam Boat Lady Sherbrook, while lowering the sail on the foreyard of the vessel, lost his balance & fell upon the engine house, where he was instantly killed by the fall. He was a native of Scotland, about 25 years old, and came out to this country the last Spring as a sailor in the ship General Wolfe, from Glasgow.

Shipping Intelligence:
The number of vessels arrived during the past week amounts to 36, which far exceeds what could be expected at this period, and many more are reported in the river. They are principally in ballast and will load with lumber. As the market at present is literally glutted with almost every description of this article of export, there is no danger of a deficiency even should the arrivals this season nearly double those of last year ; but it is to be regretted that the prices in this country as well as in Great Britain, are now so low as to afford no very favourable prospect of a fair remuneration either to the holder or shipper.

Warm Weather.— The Thermometer has for the three last days stood as follows ; on Sunday at 12 o'clock at 96, on Monday at 97, and yesterday at 96. Exposed to the rays of the sun, the Thermometer is said to have risen on Monday to 136.

The arrivals this morning report 50 sail having been in company on Sunday evening last off Kamouraska, of which number it will be seen only 14 have come up to Quebec. several of those vessels are of large burthen and have usually sailed for this port earlier in the season.
The Army.—
A detachment belonging to the 71st Highland Light Infantry Regiment, embarked at Plymouth, on the 20th May, on board the Vittoria transport for Quebec. A detachment belonging to the 81st Regiment of Foot, embarked at Portsmouth on the 18th May on board the Frinsbury transport, for Halifax. Detachments belonging to 52nd and 81st Regiment of Infantry, embarked on board the Borodino transport on the 27th May, at Portsmouth, for Halifax. Detachments belonging to 27th and 70th Regiments of Infantry, marched yesterday morning from Westminster, for Portsmouth. Detachments oth the 76th Regiment of Foot, marched yesterday morning from Westminster, for Jersey.

Quick Passage.— On Wednesday evening 5th inst. the Steam Boat Edmund Henry, Capt. Polite, master, left Laprairie with passengers, landed the same at this port, and remained 15 or 18 minutes and returned to Laprairie in the short space of one hour and 53 minutes from the time she left there.

Buffalo Harbour.— Twenty-two sail of Lake vessels were collected in Buffalo creek, on Monday last, including several of the largest class, with one Steam Boat. Among them was one of 50 tons burthen, which was built near Rochester, Munro county, and arrived by way of the Erie Canal ! Her spars were on board, fitted for their places and she is now preparing for the lake service. On her arrival at Lockport she was found four inches wider than the Locks, but by loading one side of her deck with grindstones she was thrown down upon her side so as to pass safely !
It is but a few weeks since vessels built in Ohio, passed this place on their destination upon the canal ; and there is now a vessel in port, from the upper Lakes, which after taking out her masts, is to pass through the Erie Canal, to be ultimately employed in the trade on the North River. At the Detroit Custom House this vessel cleared for the port of New York.— Buffalo Patriot, July 4th

Labourer's Wanted:— We are informed that a scarcity of labourers prevails at this time on the Welland Canal ; and that several hundred able-bodied sober men are now wanted, to whom liberal wages will be given. The situation is healthy, there not having been more than three or four deaths by disease, as far as we ascertain, on the whole line of the canal, since its commencement, and the price paid is from 10 to 13 dollars per month. The men now employed generally enjoy good health.

Travellers.— This place has been visited for the week past, with an unusual number of Ladies and Gentlemen, from the South, mostly taking the fashionable tour of the Springs, the falls of Niagara, and passing on to Quebec.

The steamboat New Swiftsure has been refitted and commenced running from this to Quebec, yesterday morning.

A Coroner's Inquest was held on Saturday last, before J.M. Mondele Esq., on view of the body of John Sawyer, cook on board the Durham-boat Interim, of Prescot, now lying in port. The evidence went to state, that while the crew were in the act of discharging the cargo, the deceased, in coming out of the hatchway was knocked down by the falling of the mast, which had been supported by a board— that he was immediately extricated, but died in less than an hour after. The jury returned the following verdict. That the deceased came to his death casually, accidentally, and by misfortune, by the mast of the said boat falling on his head.— Gazette
