Shipping Intelligence:— A considerable number of vessels are reported by the late arrivals to be in the River, bound up.
Quebec, July 29
On Wednesday last the ship Miriam & Jane, Captain Henley, at anchor on the ballast ground fell over on her beam ends ; the Captain's wife, sister and two children were on board and the cries of the females occasioned a report that the vessel was full of Emigrants—no lives were lost. The steam boat New Swiftsure went off and remained by her during the night, but was unable to render her any material assistance. About 4 p.m. of the following day the Ship started with the ebb tide drawing both her anchors and did not bring up 'till she reached Patrick's Hole, where she now lies with very little chance of being saved, as only a small part of her quarter is visible and all efforts to weigh or slip the chain cables have hitherto proved unavailing.— The Hercules Tow Boat went down to her on Thursday and we understand succeeded in saving some of the rigging.— Mercury
Halifax, July 11
Sydney, June 21 1826.— The following circumstances relative to the loss of the General Brook [sic], have been given by the mate, who is now in this place, and which I beg you will insert for the information of the concerned. I am &c. P.H. Clarke, Agent for Lloyd's.
On the 29th of May, at half past twelve a.m. the brig General Brock, of Jersey, for Gaspé, was run down by a brig—there were 18 persons on board, 3 jumped on board the brig and one was left on the vessel, Joseph Horner ; the men who left the brig, were Thomas Mallet, James Perrims and Phillip Parther ; 14 took the long boat—they saw the vessel go down instantly in lat. 47, 50 N. long. 48, 30 W. they were in the boat 10 days, during which period perished Phillip Duval, a Clerk to Messrs. Janvrin ; Francis Chevalier (Cooper) ; Phillip Serret ; Clement Renoufe ; Elias Vebrant ; George Brown.— The five first days, they were without food or water, save a small Dutch Cheese ; on the sixth day, cut and eat part of one who died the night previous, continued to subsist on human Flesh, and drank the blood with their own urine mixed with salt water, till afternoon of the 8th June, when they were run down on, and taken on board the brig Ann of Liverpool, D. Forbes, master who took on board 8 persons including Captain, Mate and six Men, of whom died, Captain P. Land ; Edward Luce ; Charles Myers ; Francis Leman. The survivors are the Mate, Elias Raudans ; Joseph Powell ; John Dobart ; William Hughes who has suffered much from inanition, and the effect of cold feet they being frost-bitten, ulcerated, &c. They arrived at the Bras D'Or on the 19th June.
In consequence of the steam boat Congress having commenced running on Lake Champlain, the American mails will arrive on Mondays, as usual and on Wednesdays and Fridays in the afternoon ; and be made up on Mondays, as usual, at 12, and Wednesdays and Fridays at 3 o'clock.
The Snake Story—Is now announced by the Gazette to be a mere hoax—given out by an inhabitant to prevent idle children trampling his fields for berries &c.
From the English Papers:
Arctic Land Expedition.— Despatches have been received from Captain Franklin, of the Arctic land expedition, dated Winter-quarters, Fort Franklin, on the great Bear Lake, September 6. During the summer, three expeditions, under Captain Franklin, Lieutenant Bach, and Dr. Richardson, were made, preparatory to the great objects to be undertaken next year. The expedition under Captain Franklin went to the mouth of the Mackenzie river, which he found to discharge itself into an open sea ; there is one island near its mouth, called by Captain Franklin Garry's Island.— From the summit of this island the Captain saw the sea to the northward all clear of ice or islands ; to the westward he saw the coast to a great distance, his view terminating at very lofty mountains, which he calculates were in longitude 188 deg. west. The expedition would proceed early in the spring on its ulterior objects. The officers and men were all well and in spirits at the favourable circumstances which had hitherto attended their proceedings.
Died.— on the 8th ult. at Ballyshannon, Ireland, Samuel Cumming, at the advanced age of 111 years. He enlisted in 1754 [1734 ?], in the 33rd regiment of foot ; and was one of the first selected gunners from that corps to the Royal Artillery in which capacity he served for 34 years. He was at the first battle fought in America, under General Cumberland ; he also served in various other campaigns, with the most distinguished bravery, and was engaged in the suppressing of Lord G. Gordon's riot in London. His having received pay under three Kings, is a remarkable circumstance ; and the amount of pension which he has received from Government, since his being discharged as unfit for service, is said to have been £1,223.2s.

From the New York Papers:
A mode of refining sugar with pot or pearl ashes instead of blood, is said to have been discovered in England.— It is said to be more economical, but this may, perhaps, be doubted.
Captain Peter Pease, who was a cabin boy in the fleet which took Nova Scotia from the French in 1745, is now living in Edgartown, Mass. healthy & active.
At New York, a young man has been convicted of stealing pump handles, to get the job of making new ones but now he goes to other work in the Penitentiary.

Shipping Intelligence:— The Miriam & Jane, has drifted down to the lower end of the Island of Orleans and was lying there with the steam boat Malsham alongside, yesterday morning. One of her chain cables has been slipped, but her head is still kept below water by her other anchor ; hopes are, however, entertained of finally succeeding in bringing her up to Quebec.— She now lies in fifteen fathoms water.
The hired Colonial brig Carrington, Rayside, was seen at the entrance of the River beating upwards on the 20th inst.
The Meridian, Straughan, arrived on Saturday from Montreal, and sailed this day for Liverpool.
The Union Packet, Lloyd, from Liverpool, proceeded for Montreal last Friday evening in tow of the Hercules, steamboat.
In the Gulf, Hibernia, from Cork with settlers. This vessel having had a very long passage, was out of provisions and received a supply from the transport Vittoria.
The late hot weather has occasioned a great deal of sickness and some instances of deaths from bowel complaints have occurred ; we observe that a great proportion of the deaths have been those of children, amongst whom dysentery has been very prevelent.— Mercury
We observe that a flying bridge is now erecting across the mouth of the Creek, at the Old Market Gate. This will be a great convenience to the public, forming a communication betwixt the upper and lower end of the Port, which has been long wished for.
On Monday night, between eleven and twelve o'clock, a female steerage passenger, whose name we have not been able to ascertain, was unfortunately drowned from the steamboat Lady of the Lake, opposite Cape Diamond.— The particulars which led to this melancholy accident are that the unfortunate female, who was a Canadian, and had been in service at Quebec, embarked on board the boat with the intention of returning to her parents, who reside in one of the country parishes on the north side of the St. Lawrence. A short time after the boat left the port of Quebec, as the deceased and a young man, a rafter, were toying near the bow of the boat, the railing gave way, and both were precipitated into the river. A small boat, with two sailors was instantly lowered and the Lady of the Lake put about. The young man, who was a good swimmer, was picked up, but the unfortunate female had disappeared.
    Mr. VILALLAVE begs to acquaint the public that he has now completed the machinery for enabling four persons at a time to enjoy the most pleasing exercise which has ever been established in this city, called the CIRCULAR RIDE. There are two Horses, a Carriole, and an elegant Silver Swan, which may each be occupied by a Lady or Gentleman, and when the machinery is set in motion they go round with an amazing velocity. At a particular point there are rings placed on a wire, for the purpose of being displaced by those on horseback in passing, and when the rings to the number of 15 are stricken off ; the ride is terminated. This amusement affords also a wholesome exercise, and will be certain of giving general satisfaction.
As the Circular Ride is in a spacious room of the Pavillion, private parties can be accomodated at any time, upon giving sufficient notice to Mr. V. and less than two persons cannot be admitted to perform the Circle at one time. The Room will be opened at 10 o'clock on Monday morning the 22nd inst. and remain open until 9 o'clock in the evening during the season.
    Tickets of admission to be had at the Bar of the Pavillion, price 6d. each during the day light, and 7½d. after the candles are lighted.

The True Briton, Reid, arrived from Montreal the early part of this week, and will sail for Greenock on Sunday next.
From the Liverpool Albion:
The weavers residing at Bolton, in Lancashire, when the distress of that body was at its greatest depth, presented an address or petition to the Colonial Secretary of State, requesting that they and their families might, for charity sake, be transported to Canada or any other British settlement. If it had been possible for the request of these poor people to have been granted, they would have derived no further relief, than that of being fed during their passage, and, perhaps, for, a period after their arrival in the Colony to which they might have been sent. The petition after stating, that have no hope of their calling ever again affording the necessaries of life, goes on to represent that their "situation is so peculiar that they cannot turn their industry into any other source." The picture they draw of their own wretchedness and misery is affecting, but after making such a declaration, it is obvious that the means they purpose would not afford them relief. "If," says the petition, "the yet uncultivated districts of Canada were thrown open to us—that is if we had the means of arriving there as settlers, our conditions would be ameliorated, at all events we could not worsten our situation, but have every chance of bettering it." We make this quotation to shew the very erroneous opinion, entertained in England respecting the North American Colonies, and how little aware these sufferers are of the hardships of a first settler's life. To emigrants of the agricultural class no country offers greater advantages than do these provinces. But the sickly artizan, the enfeebled inhabitant of a city, who must change his sedentary employment for a life of active industry and robust labour, far removed from the assistance of his fellow men, on which he has been habitually accustomed to rely ; could obtain but a bare and miserable existance, even on a farm which has been already brought into cultivation, and being wholly inadequate to the task of clearing wild lands, far from obtaining by emigration relief from the "wretchedness, starvation and misery," under which the manufacturing operatives have unhappily laboured, he would find that he had only changed the scene of his sufferings, to encounter in their worst form in a distant colony, and a rigorous climate, the very evils which he sought to avoid by quitting his native country.

Her appearance reflects much credit on her builder Mr. Joseph Dennis, and the Machinery manufactured by Messrs. Wards of Montreal, is a specimen of superior workmanship. The combined excellence of the model and machinery of this boat are such as will render her what is termed a "fast boat." The trip to Niagara was performed in four hours and nine minutes. Her present route we observe is advertised from York to Niagara and the Head of the Lake.— U.E. Loyalist
Quebec, August 19.
The arrival of His Lordship the Governor in Chief with the Countess of Dalhousie is looked for about the 1st proximo, as the Menai only waited for a fair wind on the 2nd August to proceed on her voyage hither. H.M.S. Jupiter, 60 guns, bearing the Flag of Rear Admiral Lake, was to accompany the Menai, the Admiral proposing to visit Canada with his family and a party of fashionable from Halifax, whose tour will, it is said, be extended to the Falls of Niagara.— Mercury

Shipping Intelligence:
The brig Amos Botsford, Hodgson, from Liverpool for Quebec, out 19 days, in ballast, was fallen in with in a sinking state 8th July, lat. 46, long. 25, by the Adeline, from New Orleans for Liverpool. Capt. Hodgson, officers and seamen, fourteen in number, were taken on board the Adeline ; the brig sank shortly after.
The brig Maria, of Liverpool, on her return from Buenos Ayres, sunk in the British Channel, and 37 persons, including several women and children, who were passengers, drowned.
Needle Making:
I will attempt to give you some idea of needle making. The wire is first cut into suitable lengths for two needles. Each end is sharpened by taking fifty or a hundred between the finger and rolling the points on a revolving stone. The needle is then placed on a die, exactly in the centre, and one blow makes two eyes, and, at the same time, cuts the wire nearly in two, between the eyes. This was done with so much rapidity that I asked how many times the die fell to make the eyes, not perceiving that the boy took up a new one at every blow. Two needles are then parted, and you have two in an unfinished state. Tempering them is then the next process. The needles while heated red hot, are thrown into cold water, and afterwards are brought to a spring temper, by being rolled in plates of hot iron. Each is then filed at the eye ; and, last of all, receives the polish in the same way as it is pointed, only on a finer stone. In the lastroom I visited were 15 or 20 young girls, from ten to fourteen years of age, busy in counting them out, putting them into papers, and labelling them. The principal part of the work is done by boys, who, from their appearance, must be poorly paid.—London Paper

On Thursday afternoon, a fine new ship named the Egyptian, buthen 217 tons, was launched from the building yard of Mr. Alexander Young of this city. The day being fine a great number of inhabitants assembled on the occasion. She went of in fine style, amid the cheers of the spectators. She is intended for the Levant trade.—Herald
Match against Time:— On Friday last a considerable sum was won by Lt. Hoare, of the 76th Regiment, by running against time. This gentleman had betted the preceding day, to run five miles in 35 minutes. Accompanied by some other officers, he repaired to the appointed place—the bank of the Lachine canal, where a distance of one mile was measured for the undertaking. About one o'clock he commenced and notwithstanding the day was very warm, he performed the distance with apparent ease, having one minute and ten seconds to spare.—Gazette

There were but seven papers in the United States in 1750. In 1810 there were 359, including 25 published daily, which circulated 22,200,000 copies in the year. In 1823 they had increased to 588, and are at present about 640. The number of copies circulated in the year by these journals, exceed 30,000,000. In the British Isles, in 1821, with twenty million people, the number of newspapers was estimated to be 284, and the copies printed annually, 28,000,000.—Philadelphia Gazette

Nearly 250 vessels arrived last year after the first of September, and although a similar number are not now expected during the remainder of this season, it is probable that the total at the close of the navigation will not be far short of 700.

Shipping Intelligence:
     The Dalusia, (new brig) Norton, hence 14th August for London, has put back to Kamouraska, being too crank to proceed to sea. It is expected she will be able to proceed on her voyage about the end of the week.
     Captain Lawson, of the brig Gales, arrived on the 31st ultimo. from Belfast, reports having seen a ship ashore on the southwest point of Anticosti, about 14 days since. She was lying high up and had lost all her masts.
     The Miriam & Jane, is not to be sold as was intended after the report of the survey, but will be repaired and sent to sea this fall.
     The ship Cottingham, which put back, having received damage from grounding in the Traverse, has been obliged to discharge to repair, the injury sustained being greater than appeared on the first inspection.

It cannot be made too public, that by the 5th Geo. IV.cap. 128, sec.70, spirits found floating on the sea, are not to be taken up if in casks less than 40 gallons, by any person meeting them (not even with intent to deliver them to officers of the customs) except by officers of the navy, customs or excise under forefiture [sic] (forfeiture) of the vessel or boat, likewise the penalty of three times the value of such spirits, or the sum of £50 at the election of the commissioners of his Majesty's customs ; but by the 71st section of the same act, any person giving information to a person authorized to seize such spirits as may be floating, so that such seizure shall be made, shall be entitled to such reward as the commissioners of the customs direct.—London Paper
Important to Merchants.— The Dublin Freeman's Journal states, that by a law which would go into operation on the 1st August, all ship-masters will have to give an account, at the Customs-house, of the cargo, on board their vessels, previous to being cleared out. To do this is almost impossible ; and if the law be enforced, it will take two or three days to get through the clearance, which is now done in one day. The inconvenience to commerce will be serious.
The Steam Boat Comet.— This unfortunate vessel which last year carried so many passengers to a watery grave, has been raised and brought to land. The bodies of several persons who were supposed to be lost in her have been recovered, and the whole number is sixty-three. Thirteen only were saved.

Accident.— On Friday morning last, a young man named John Laverick, belonging to the brig Southampton, lying at the Queen's Wharf, was unfortunately drowned under the following circumstances:— While standing on the plank which conducts to the vessel it accidently slipped off the edge of the wharf and precipitated him into the river ; owing it us supposed, to his striking on a spar placed as a fender, he never rose to the surface of the water, and every exertion to recover the body proved unavailing.
His Excellency the Governor in Chief, the Countess of Dalhousie, Rear Admiral Lake and their respective suites were passengers in the Lady Sherbrooke which left port for Montreal yesterday morning. His Excellency will be absent about a fortnight.

To be sold, the STEAM BOAT MALSHAM, burthen per register 608 tons, as she now lays, below the Town, with her Engine complete of 45 horse power, made by the much celebrated Bolton and Watt.— she was built exceedingly strong, principally of Oak, and chiefly Copper fastened,— the great power of the Engine may be estimated from the facilty and speed with which so heavy a vessel has been propelled by it.— She may be sold with or without her Engine, as shall best suit the purchasers, and if not disposed on or before the 2nd October next, by private sale, she will on that day be sold, by Public Auction. For terms and conditions apply to               JOHN MOLSON & SONS,
Agents of the St. Lawrence Steam Boat Company.
August 20th 1826.

Yesterday at two o'clock p.m. the Steam Boat, Lady Sherbrooke arrived from Quebec, with detachments of the 68th and 70th Regiments under the command of Captain Smith, consisting 4 subalterns, 1 Asst. Surgeon, 2 Non-Commissioned Officers, and 120 Rank and File on their route to Upper Canada, to join their respective Regiments.
This line is now in operation, and will continue during the season of navigation, making two trips each week from Montreal to Hull, at the Chaudière Falls, and the same from Hull to Montreal. The Stage will leave E. Cushing's Inn, McGill Street, in Montreal, every TUESDAY and FRIDAY mornings at 6 o'clock, and arrive at Lachine, at 7 o'clock, when the Steam Boat St. Andrews will leave Point Fortune in time for the Stage to convey the passengers to the Steam Boat Union, at Hawkesbury the same evening ; she will arrive at Hull on Wednesday night.
The Steam Boat Union will leave Hull every TUESDAY and FRIDAY mornings at 5 o'clock, and reach Hawkesbury in time for the passengers to arrive at Point Fortune the same evening. The Steam Boat St. Andrews will leave Point Fortune on WEDNESDAY and SATURDAY mornings at 5 o'clock, and meet the Montreal Stage at Lachine in time to convey the passengers to Montreal the same day.
For any further information, apply at E. CUSHING'S Stage Office in Montreal ; Capt. D. Nelson, St. Andrews Steam Boat ; Capt. W. Grant, Steam Boat Union ; Mr. John Russel, Stage Proprietor, St. Andrews or Tait & Davis, Point Fortune.
Freight will be transported in the line on the most reasonable terms and with the greatest care and dispatch. As this route to the Chaudière Falls is more romantic than any other tour in the Canadas, and for health and pleasure cannot be too highly recommended, should any parties be desirous of making that tour, the shortest notice will induce the proprietor to make every preparation for their comfort.
