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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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

Upwards of twenty sail have arrived since Saturday last, many of them on their second voyage. Several more are in the river, bound up.
Latest from France:— The ship America, Captain Moran, arrived last night (21st Sept) from Havre. The papers furnished by her are Paris dates to the 12th, and Havre dates to the 12th August. We present the following extract . . .
The frigate Hebe had arrived at Havre, with five million francs, the first instalment from the Haytien government, accompanied by an agent to see the funds duly delivered.
From the Brockville Recorder, Sept. 25

Steam Boats:— The present seems to be a period of misfortune to the Lake and River navigation, as we think will be readily granted when we inform our readers, that the Steam Boat Queenston on her trip upwards, last week, is said to have ran down the Kingston Packet. Whether the blame is to be attached to the Queenston or the Packet we have not learned. The encounter, however, has not prevented the Queenston making her usual trips.
On Tuesday morning last, the Steam Boat Canada, which runs between York and Niagara, whilst clearing the Niagara river, came in contact with the American Boat Martha Ogden, which was materially damaged, she having been near sinking.
The Steam Boat Toronto, is stated to have burst her steam conductor, which has prevented her accomplishing her usual trips down the river.
The Steam Boat Frontenac, which has escaped accident during this general visitation, made a trip to Prescott for the first time, last week, and landed several passengers at this place on passing, among whom was the Rt. Rev'd. Lord Bishop of Quebec, who has proceeded on a visiting tour to Perth where he was to have preached and administered the rite of confirmation yesterday. He is expected to be in this place tomorrow.

Quebec, October 2nd
On Friday morning (Sept 29) six or seven of the seamen of the Captain Cook, Quickfall, who had been imprisoned for refusing to do duty during the ship's stay here, about six weeks, were put on board of the vessel under a guard of the 79th. The Captain Cook sailed the same morning for Bristol.
The bark Granicus, Wilkie, from Cork, lying at J.S. Cambell's [sic] Cove, fell over on her broadside last Friday morning. She was righted again on Saturday evening by the assistance of the steam-boat Hercules and the boats of the vessels of war, with no other damage than the loss of two of her masts.
Accident:— On Thursday last, about two o'clock p.m. as the Steam Boat William Annesley, in proceeding from this City [Montreal] to the opposite shore, attempted to get through the usual channel round the rocks, when about halfway across, the current running very strong, obliged her to wheel suddenly round, which motion caused what is generally termed a lurch. Mr. Stephen Westover, of Sutton, and Mr. Henry Rosenberger of St. Amand, with his wife, who were sitting in a waggon on the deck, were thrown overboard, the tail board of the waggon being forced out by the quick turn of the boat. Mr. Westover was unfortunately drowned, but the other two were saved by the prompt exertions of the people belonging to the William Annesley, who lost no time in lowering the small boat, which picked up Mrs. Rosenberger, whose husband caught hold of the Water Wheel (the Engine having been stopped the instant the accident occurred) and was taken aboard uninjured. The part of the River where this circumstance took place requires improvement very much, as the passage is really dangerous in its present state.
HEBREW LANGUAGE SIMPLIFIED
and taught in a short time

The subscriber intending to remain in Montreal for some time will (if permitted) in the course of the next week propose to give LECTURES on the above language to the Rev'd. Clergy, and others upon a system devised by himself, and attested and approved of by some of the most respectable and learned Clergymen, Presidents and Professors of Colleges and Seminaries, in the United States of America.
Recommendatory Letters and References will accompany the proposals.

Colonial Intelligence:
EMIGRATION TO CANADA
     In the September number of Blackwoods Magazine, which we received by the Canada, we find the following, in an article on Emigration, given as the views of the Canada Land Company :— Albion.
     The Canada Company having concluded their arrangements with Government, for the purchase of the Crown Reserves and a large territory in Upper Canada, might now enter into contracts with societies, disposed to settle in that healthy and fertile country.
     The reserves are scattered in lots of 200 acres each, over all the located and cultivated townships in the province, extending from the river Ottawa to the St. Clair, along the banks of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, about 500 miles, and consist of the richest soil, under a climate in no respect inferior to that of the state of New York. The Territory is united on two sides with ranges of those townships, and is equally advantageously situated having access to it by water along the other boundaries.
     The Company does not intend to send out settlers, nor to give direct encouragement to emigrants destitute of property, because undertakings of that kind may be done to greater advantage by individuals possessed of capital purchasing either detached lots or larger tracts, or by families uniting their means for co-operation and society.
     The company when required, will partially clear lots, and build such houses as may be neccessary for the reception of settlers. Their lands will probably be disposed of according to the following classes :—
     1. Lots prepared for settlement by clearing five acres, & building a cottage. Such lots to be disposed of at annual payment of probably little more than 1s. per acre. If the house and clearing cost £50, that sum to be redeemed within a certain number of years by annual instalments.
     2. Lots similarly prepared to be disposed of at a rent supposed of 2s. per acre on lease ; but the purchaser to be allowed the option at any time within the first fifteen years, to purchase the lot at 20 years value of the rental.
     3. Lots to be sold for ready money, without improvements.
     4. Lots to be sold payable by instalments in ten years, seven years, and five years, as may be agreed on.
     5. Lots to be sold, with improvements for ready money.
     6. Lots to be sold, with improvements, payable by instalments.
     7. Lots to be sold, with or without improvements, purchasers paying down a certain fee, or grassum (a lump sum) ; the and remaining subject to a small quit-rent or feu-duty.
     A man, bred to agriculture, who arrives in Upper Canada with £100, may, in the course of a very few years, look forward to the enjoyment of comfort and independence as a proprietor of land, on which, accordng to the terms of his bargain, he may have but little or no rent to pay, assuredly few taxes, and neither tithes nor poor rates. With persons of this description the Company will treat upon the most accommodating principles.
     At the office, and from the agents of the Company, either by personal application, or by letter (post paid), information will at all times be afforded regarding vessels bound to Canada, the rates of freight and passage, stores requisite for the voyage, and assistance will be given to parties when embarking, to protect them from unneccessary trouble and expense. A map of the province is ready for publication, compiled from actual survey, in which the districts, counties, and townships, are all exhibited ; and those in which the Company have lands are particularly dsitinguished. At the offices of the Company, and of the agents, separate plans of each township, with the Company's lots therein specially marked, will be open for public inspection ; so that emigrants may, before their departure, select any particular neighbourhood in the country, of which they may, have acquired information, or where they may have friends already settled.
     Emigrants who have money to take with them, will upon paying it into the hands of the Company in London, or to their agents at the out-ports, receive orders for the amount, payable either at Quebec, Montreal, Kingston, or York ; & duplicates will, at the same time, be delivered, to be left in this country ; so that, in case of accident, the amount may be recovered by the representatives of the parties.
     N.B. The Company has not yet published any view of their intended proceedings ; so that, although the foregoing has been made up from conversations with gentlemen in the company's office, it is not to be considered as the entire plan of operation which may be ultimately carried into effect, but only as an outline of the views on which that plan will be formed.

Steam Boat Accident.— On Thursday evening about 8 o'clock, the steam boats Congress and Phoenix, both running at the rate of 7 or 8 knots an hour, came in contact with each other about ten miles on this side of Burlington (VT), on the opposite side of the lake (Champlain), by which the former received considerable injury. We have only heard of one life being lost, that of a poor woman who crossing the shaft at the time, was crushed to pieces. Another woman was dying at Port Kent, but whether from wounds received on board the boat, we know not. We have ascertained the following particulars of this disastrous catastrophe, from an authentic source. The Congress on her way to Whitehall (NY) had left the village of Port Kent (a stopping place) about ten minutes, when the Phoenix was seen close ahead.— The night being dark and the Congress, under the shade of the mountains, it is supposed that her lights were mistaken for those of the village by the Phoenix, as she fired a gun at the same moment she struck the Congress, which was crowded with cabin passengers, male and female. After they had awaked from the shock, to describe the scene that ensued is impossible. Some crying that one boat was sinking, and some the other. The cries of the women and children were heart-rending. When the tumult had somewhat subsided, and the passengers assured that the danger had ceased, every one began to search for their baggage. They soon found that the baggage-room with all its contents had been carried away. The bow of the Phoenix struck the larboard wing of the Congress, which was entirely carried off. A number of the beams which support the deck were broken. The greater part of the baggage belonging to the passengers entered for Whitehall was lost ; that of the others intending to land at intermediate places was fortunately on deck. It was more than half and hour before the boats disengaged. The Phoenix then towed the Congress into Port Kent, where they arrived about eleven o'clock. On the following morning the Phoenix proceeded to Whitehall with such of the passengers as were inclined to proceed—a number being obliged to return in consequence of losing their baggage and money. The Phoenix arrived, on her return at Port Kent on Sunday morning, where she took the returning passengers on board and arrived at St. Johns that night about eleven o'clock. The mail made up in this city on Wednesday last for New York was lost. An unsuccessful search had been made for it.— There are about sixty feet depth of water where the accident occurred.—Montreal Gazette
note: and additional news item in the October 14th issue identified the woman killed, as an Irish woman named Catherine Kane.

Hurricane:
A severe equinoxal hurricane was experienced on the 5th and 6th September, in about lat. 32° N. and lon. 77° W. Several vessels, dismasted in the gale have since been seen under jury masts, making for the nearest ports, and some spars and other articles, have been passed by vessels which have since arrived.

The Liverpool papers give some particulars of the severe gale on the English coast on the 6th and 7th of September. Many vessels were driven on shore, others were sunk, and all the passengers and crews were drowned. The several steam vessels which sailed for different ports all rode out the gale in safety. One of them, the Manchester, made a passage direct from Dublin to Liverpool encountering a tremendous sea, but weathered the gale in safety.


New York, Oct. 21
Steam Navigation in the Winter:— Captain Ward proposes to connect his newly invented apparatus to Steam Boats, for the purpose of navigating our rivers during the winter season, by cutting a passage through the ice. The bows of the boat are to be defended by a frame-work of timber, which will come in contact with the floating masses, while several large circular saws, seven feet in diameter, with heavy hammers, all worked by the steam engine, will cut and break the ice ahead and open a way of more than sufficient width to admit it. It is needless to say that if this invention should prove successful even so far as to render the Hudson river navigable for four, three, or two months longer than it is at present, it would prove of great advantage to the city, and to those who adopt the plan. The model has received the approbation of experienced men.— D.Adv.

Passengers:
In the Cortes, 11th September from London, arrived at New York on the 12th inst., Mr. & Mrs. Rolph, Member of the Provincial Parliament of Upper Canada.
Captain Handyside, of the brig Pomona, hence the 20th August for Peterhead, has come up to Quebec in the St. Lawrence. He reports that in long. 34,3 W a heavy sea struck the Pomona, which started her stern post, and she became water logged immediately. After remaining in the foretop six days himself and the crew, with the exception of three who perished, were taken off the wreck by the Traveller, of Bristol, and on the 6th inst. were put on board the St. Lawrence.
Early Snow.— On Thursday night it froze so hard that ice fully an inch thick was formed, and yesterday, even in situations exposed to the sun, the ice, hardly thawed. In the evening snow commenced falling and the ground is today covered with it to the depth of two or three inches. On Tuesday snow fell in the parishes six or eight leagues to the south of Quebec. Carioles have been used in the vicinity of Quebec.

Extract of a letter, dated Bathurst, Bay Chaleur, September 27.
 
"On Monday last the Alexander, from Aberdeen arrived here ; 6 or 8 days previous, when about 2 leagues to the N.W. of St. Paul's Island fell in with the brig John Twezell (John Twizell), of South Shields, abandoned by the crew. She is timber laden, apparently from Quebec ; in 5 hours they pumped her out, the topgallant and studding sails had been taken from her, topsail yard lowered on the cap, try-sail and spencer hauled up, jib stowed, and all the small articles taken away—an auger was found in the after peak. The Alexander succeeded in bringing her into the Bay, when the master gave her in charge to Captain Hogg (one of his owners) who carried he into Carraquette ; they purpose sending her home immediately."
Halifax Paper
The brig John Twizell, Captain Grant, had arrived at Quebec August 1st, from Dublin with 156 settlers ; she cleared for sailing for Dublin on September 8th.

The Alien question has come into play in our courts. An action of ejectment was tried last week, and the plaintiff defeated in consequence of his father having resided in the United States after the treaty of 1783.
The father of the Plaintiff was born in the United States previous to the revolution.
A dreadful accident happened early on Wednesday morning on board the Winscales, Capt. Brown, in this harbour. A sailor, who in a moment of excitement, arising from intoxication, was dancing on the deck, fell into the hold to a depth of 20 feet, and was killed on the spot. An inquest will be held this day.— Quebec Gazette

The Quebec papers state. "that the ship Canadian bound upwards went on shore at St. Vallier last Saturday morning, with loss of one anchor and windlass. It is expected she would be got off on the next tide."
Since copying the above, we learn that on Monday evening, during the storm, the Canadian bilged and filled with water.— Gazette

Montreal:
On Monday morning last, about five o'clock, the steamboat New Swiftsure, on her passage from Quebec, was run aground about twenty miles below this city. The Lady of the Lake, on passing the Swiftsure was hailed by the latter, and immediately had the engine stopped, and sent a boat along side. A number of the passengers who had been in the Swiftsure at the time of the accident, were taken on board the Lady of the Lake and conveyed to Montreal ; others remained and have not yet made their appearance.—
We were informed by the passengers that the accident was entirely owing to the negligence or ignorance of the pilot, who mistook the regular channel, and thus caused the delay of the Swiftsure, which at this season of the year must be a serious inconvenience to the Company.
The Lady of the Lake left Quebec at half-past eleven o'clock on Saturday night, and arrived here a little after ten on Monday morning ; she is a very swift boat, and her accomodations for passengers much superior to what her external appearance indicates.

The Weather:
On Saturday evening a severe frost set in, and has continued since that time, by which our streets have received more improvement than they did for the six months preceeding. Passengers can now walk wth dry feet, who were, last week obliged to wade knee deep through the mud, especially in the neighbourhood of the new College Bridge, where it was really dangerous to attempt passing.
We understand that some of the Steam Boats have been sent to their winter quarters, and if the frost continues, the remainder must very soon follow the same example.
KINGSTON, Nov. 14
We regret exceedingly that it is not in our power to give a more favourable account of the Steam Boat Niagara. On Friday last she was lying in about four and a half feet of water, off Poplar point, 50 miles from this place, and there is but little probability of her being got off this season. We perceive by the York papers, that the passengers have expressed their entire approbation of Captain Mosier's conduct. The passengers' names are Samuel Clowes ; Smith Griffin ; George Rikert ; Thomas Bell ; David Sleeper ; Ronald Chisholm ; Thomas Moore ; David Simpson and John Leighton.

Shipping Intelligence:
The Abeona sailed on Wednesday for London. The Duchess of Gloster, (the last vessel) sailed on Thursday morning. The navigation is quite open.
The bark Thomas Wallace, Brown, came up on Wednesday, she lost both anchors, rudder &c. and is full of water. The damage sustained is her hull is supposed not to be so great as at first stated— it will however be impracticable to send her to sea again. She is now dismantled and hauled up inside of Atkinson's Wharf.
STEAM BOATS.—
The Edmond Henry, the last boat in port, repaired to her winter quarters, Boucherville, on Monday, where the Laprairie and the St. Lawrence Steam-boat Company's boats, Quebec, New Swiftsure, Waterloo, Chambly, Malsham and Lady Sherbrooke are laid up. The latter boat has had her engine taken out, which with one of similar power, now making by Mr. Ward, will be put into the new boat John Molson, now building by Mr. Farrington, which will be ready for launching on the opening of navigation. The Hercules and Richelieu winter at Sorel ; the Lady of the Lake, at Bout de Lisle ; the Montreal at La Tortue. This boat will in the course of the winter, undergo a thorough repair ; be made much larger, and will ply during the navigation of 1827, between Montreal and Longueil. The William Annesley, winters in the Lachine Canal. This boat is also to undergo a thorough repair ; and will during the ensuing summer, ply between Point Fortune and Hull.— Gazette

QUEBEC, December 7th
The Quebec Packet, Atkinson, which sailed from this port for London, on the 25th ult. struck on Red Island on Wednesday the 29th, and as it was found that she leaked, was run ashore at Trois Pistoles, to be examined, when the damage she had received was found so considerable, it was neccessary to put back to Quebec. The ice formed in the river so fast, that she could only, after considerable difficulty reach Patrick's Hole, about nine miles below this port, where she now lies with four feet of water in her hold.
The Quebec Packet is the vessel which was seen beating up on Saturday off Berthier, and was conjectured by some to be the vessel with detachments of the Staff Corps, under Major Duvernet. No information of the vessel bringing out those detachments has been obtained, and the reports published that she had been lost are without foundation.— Old Gazette
The Weather.—
Considering the advanced period of the season, the weather is remarkably mild. Since our last, we have had a little frost, which hardened the streets, so that the inhabitants may go to market without wading mid-leg in mud as was the case last week. The country roads, however, are in a most wretched state, particularly those between St. Johns and LaPrairie. This has occasioned the United States mail to be irregular in its arrival here for some time past, and the disappointment must continue until the winter sets in, so as to insure good and expeditious travelling. The river is perfectly open, and the atmosphere so mild, that batteaux continue to run between this city [Montreal] and LaPrairie, in the utmost safety.
