Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1827

The following information on arrivals, due to the condition of the papers, has been taken from various sources including the Montreal Gazette MG, the U.E. Loyalist UEL 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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1827.

1827
March 8th - MG

There was a dreadful storm along the coasts bordering the Irish Channel which lasted several days. The packet ship Panthea, from New York for Liverpool, was stranded in attempting to make a harbor in Holyhead Bay, on the 14th January, 20th day out—her sails having all been blown from the yards in a tremendous gale off the Head. The passengers and crew were all saved, as were some of her letters, and one box of gold. The cargo consisted of between 10 and 11,000 bushels of Indian corn, about 300 bales of cotton, about 100 barrels of apples and 2 boxes of gold. The ship, freight, and most of the cargo, were insured New York. The letter bags saved, reached Liverpool previous to the sailing of the Britannia.

   
April 5th - MG Interior Navigation by Steam:—
On Friday se'nnight the Marquis of Wellesley steamboat, built to tow boats and carry passengers, arrived at the canal harbour, Limerick, from Dublin, attended by two of her fly-boats. This is the first instance of the application of steam to interior navigation in Ireland, and will remedy the defect arising from the difficulty and uncertainty of crossing, by the craft hitherto in use, the broad waters of the Shannon above Killaloe. This vessel will, in almost all weathers, be able to take her own cargo and tow her fly-boats across the lake and thus ensure the certain delivery of goods both here and in Dublin, within regular given periods. She is very neatly fitted up for the accomodation of passengers, and we have no doubt but many persons will avail themselves of this delightful and easy mode of conveyance, to visit those parts of the country hitherto little known, from want of easy access, particularly the bold and majestic scenery of Lough Derg, when the weather shall become more favourable for such excursions. This boat was built at the Horseley works, in Staffordshire, and has been constructed under the superintendence of Mr. John Grantham, and at his sole expense. A number of distinguished individuals sailed with her on her first trip, and she was welcomed to the waters of the Shannon by vast numbers of admiring spectators.
   
April 12th - MG Steamboat Accident:—
Yesterday afternoon, after the steambaot Montreal arrived at Longueuil, one of the boilers burst and scalded a fireman of the name of Scott in such a manner, that no hopes are entertained for his life.
   
  Steam Boats:—
Yesterday about nine o'clock in the morning, the Steam Boat Edmund Henry, arrived in port from her winter quarters. This is the first arrival this spring, and is two days earlier than last year, the Laprairie having arrived here on the 13th. Since which the Waterloo, Montreal and Lady of the Lake have arrived, and others are hourly expected. The Edmund Henry has commenced running to Laprairie from this side every day, at 10 am and 4 pm and leaves Laprairie at half past 6 am and half past 1 pm.
   
  Weather:—
The fine mild weather which we have had, since our last, has entirely freed our streets from snow and ice, and considerably reduced the quantity in the river.—The Champ de Mars is now completely dry, and we are happy to find that the troops have commenced their daily exercise.
   
April 16th - MG

A London paper of the 21st February says—" Reports have reached town, through the North-west Company, that Captain Franklin had accomplished the objects of his overland expedition, and had fallen in with, and embarked on board his Majesty's ship Blossom, which had been for the purpose of meeting him in Behring's Straits. It is added that some of the party who were with him had retraced their steps by their original route. "

   
  Steam Boats.
Since our last the Quebec and the New Swiftsure Steam Boats have arrived in port, which with the steam boats and some river craft again presents the appearance of activity. The Waterloo steam boat set off yesterday morning for Quebec. She is very neatly fitted up for the accomodation of passengers only.
   
  Lachine Canal.
Owing to some repairs that were deemed necessary to be made on the Canal, the water was not let in till this morning. A large Durham boat, the Gull, from Ogdensburgh, has already come through loaded with flour and live hogs.
 

 

  Canal Promenade.
We regret to notice, that many of the trees planted last fall, on the banks of the Lachine Canal, by the aid, we believe, of a subscription of a few individuals, who had taste and spirit enough to appreciate the value of this delightful promenade ;—have lately been wantonly destroyed. We are likewise afraid, that many of the remaining trees have not taken root, owing perhaps to their having been taken from the forest, rather than from the more congenial soil and situation of a nursey ground. We hope the Canal Commissioners, and those who have already done so much to improve this walk, will immediately have the dead trees replaced, before the season is too far advanced for transplanting, with hopes of success.
   
April 16th - MG Lights of the River.—
We understand it is in contemplation to place Lights in several parts of the river, between Quebec and Montreal, which may enable vessels and steamboats to proceed at all hours without the frequent interruptions to which they are now liable. It is expected that the expence of these useful establishments will be defrayed from a fund which has been accumulating for some years past, from tonnage duty levied on all Steam-boats navigating this part of the St. Lawrence. . . . . .
 

 

  Steam Boats.
The Hercules, George Brush, Master, arrived from Sorel on Tuesday afternoon with freight and passengers, she came through the Current in fine style ; her Cabins and State Rooms have been neatly painted and are well calculated to afford every comfort and convenience to passengers.
The Captains appointed to the different boats running between this [Montreal] and Quebec are as follows:— Tow-boat Hercules, Brush,— Swiftsure, Perry,— Waterloo, Nickless,— Quebec, Richardson,— Chambly, C. Armstrong,— Richelieu, Franchere,— LaPrairie, Morin.
The new Tow-boat John Molson, now on the stocks, we learn is to be launched on the 5th proximo [5th May]. She will have two engines 60 horsepower each, and will probably be the finest and best vessel of this kind afloat upon the St. Lawrence. She is to be commanded by Captain Jesse Armstong.
   
April 23rd - MG The Java Packet from Batavia, went down off Flushing, and the whole of her crew, consisting of 30 souls, were doomed to a watery grave, with the exception of the pilot, who contrived to save himself. She had on board 8000 bags of coffee, which are all gone. She was insured at Lloyd's.
The British ship Marmion, Captain Petrie, from Liverpool to Calcutta, with a cargo valued at from 60 to 70,000, was abandoned at sea on the 15th February, having started a butt. The crew and passengers were saved by the British ship Garland.
   
May 3rd - MG Lake Erie Boats.
The Steam Boats on Lake Erie have formed into a regular line for the conveyance of passengers the ensuing season. The Superior was to have left Buffalo on Saturday se'nnight.
A line of post coaches has been established between Niagara and Ancaster, Upper Canada. It is stated in the St. Catherine's Journal, that this line will be extended to Sandwich, opposite to Detroit.

Quebec, May 3rd.
The number of Emigrants who have already arrived at this port is about 1500, and preparations both from Ireland and Scotland were making at commencement of April, for the embarkation of thousands at the expense of the emigrant himself. Indeed from what we have heard, we might almost say that the larger number of poor Manufacturers in Glasgow and Paisley are only prevented from coming out by the want of means. From Ireland thousands are coming out on their own account. Government have given information that 16,000 will be immediately sent out at its expense. We suppose that 25,000 emigrants will arrive this season.
The number of vessels arrived in port is now near 70. Many of them have had passages of between 18 and 22 days ; which we believe almost without example. Some of them had not an hour's contrary wind from leaving the British port to their anchoring here. The passages were generally pleasant. In the river, however, the wind was extremely violent on Tuesday. It was impossible at one time to carry sail. Some of the vessels which arrived here that evening, were off Gaspé on Monday morning, and passed Bic at 6 o'clock AM on Tuesday. Some islands of ice were seen on the Banks of Newfoundland, and a little field of ice on the Cape Breton shore, but it was not considerable enough to offer any obstruction.

Seventy-one vessels have arrived in port, and a great many are reported to be at hand. Last year, up to the 7th May, there were only five arrivals from sea.

The Montreal, Captain Udney, arrived a few hours ago in 18 days from Liverpool (14½ days from Cape Clear) bringing us papers of the 12th April, with London dates of the 10th inclusive.

The Rob Roy, Kenn, 24 days from Belfast, drove ashore near the parish of L'Islet on the night of the 30th ultimo and has become a total wreck ; the Captain and crew were saved, but we are concerned to learn that about 30, of 150 settlers, were washed overboard by the heavy sea. Captain Kenn has come to town.
 
Wreck of the Rob Roy
The Steam-boat Waterloo, returned yesterday forenoon from the wreck of the Rob Roy with 70 of her passengers ; the remainder had proceeded for Quebec by land. The total number of settlers embarked in the Rob Roy at Belfast, amounted to 151, out of which 8 men, two women, and 19 children perished on board at L'Islet, where the vessel stranded. The bodies were all taken on shore and buried on Thursday morning. The accounts from the brig are very distressing. One passenger (Frank Chrasty), lost his wife and three children ; another (David McGarrow), out of four children lost three, the one saved is deaf and dumb, aged about four years. Thomas Miller, who had come out to settle with friends at York, U.C. lost two children, his sister-in-law (Mrs Lamb), with seven children, lost her husband and one child. The latter family had property on board worth nearly five hundred pounds, the whole of which is lost, and not a farthing insured. The vessel is a total wreck. Many of the settlers which have come up from the wreck, have been in respectable circumstances, several having embarked with considerable property. The Emigrant Society, we understand, the most deserving objects to their several destinations.— They met with every assistance from the Canadian Inhabitants near the spot where the disaster occured.—Quebec Mercury

On Thursday morning, while one of the hands on board the Cherub was reefing the top-gallant sail, that vessel being at anchor opposite Three Rivers, the mast broke and the unfortunate young man fell from the mast head and was almost instantly killed. He was 19 years of age, from Greenock, and of the name John Smith.

Mr. Chapman, a passenger in the Harriet, has arrived at Quebec. The H. went ashore on Monday last, but is not much damaged, and was expected to be soon got off.
Most of the regular London and Liverpool traders have arrived. A number of vessels with passengers from Cork, Belfast and Dublin, which sailed for this port early in April have not yet come up. The total shipping, owing to the low rate of freight and other causes, is not expected to be so great this season as last.

Since the opening of the Lachine Canal which took place on the 16th ultimate about 130 Durham and other boats have passed the Locks, upwards, while there have been but 50 through the Canal from Lachine to this place.—Courant
On Sunday last, the Steam boat St. Andrew crossed the River between Lachine and Caughnawaga. This is the first time that a Steam boat has crossed that place ; but from the uncommon height of the water in the St. Lawrence she found no great difficulty in accomplishing it.—Courant

The Court opened at 9am . . . . . At the same time they returned No Bills on Indictments against Samuel King, Joseph Moore, and Elizabeth Briand, for feloniously conveying two small saws, one small auger and one small file into the Common Gaol for the District of Montreal, in order to facilitate the escape of a prisoner . . . . .

Tuesday, May 15.— Mr. Lambly, the Harbour Master, returned, we understand, some days ago from and examined the river between this city and Montreal, for the purpose of placing beacons or lights to assist steamboats and vessels sailing between the two ports.
It is intended in consequence, we have been informed to place a light upon Grosse-Isle at the easterly entrance of the river Richelieu—two lights on the high land above the Platon, to be kept in a line running to and from the West entrance of the channel—and two lights also to be kept in a line to steer clear of the south end of the batture d'Abigon.
These lights will occasion steam and other vessels to run without danger in clear weather at night, and prove of great service in the intercourse with Montreal.
We also learn that a fifth buoy has been placed in the Traverse opposite St. Rock, below. It is white with a pole and knob at its end, and is laid at the east end of the middle bank at the lower end of the traverse.

Launched yesterday morning:
From Mr. Taylor's yard, the brig King Fisher, of 221 tons
From Mr. Munn's yard, the ship Ariadna, of 325 tons
From Mr. Goudie'd yard, the American, of 400 tons

A man of the name of Louis Vinette fell from the wharf of the Steam Boat Company at Three Rivers, on Monday last, and we are sorry to hear, was drowned.
. . later . . May 28th edition
We understand it was proved by two witnesses at the inquest held at Three Rivers on the body of Louis Vinette, whose accidental drowning we mentioned on Monday, that a Canoe, capable of carrying 14 persons, with two men and a woman in it, was within a few paces of the drowning man, and although Mr. Hughes implored them to save the young man's life, they sat unconcerned till they saw him sink.

Extraordinary Escape:—
On Thursday afternoon, about seven o'clock, whilst the " CANADA FLOATING DOCK, " was about to be launched from the Ship-yard of Mr. Farrington, at the foot of the Current St. Marie, a person named Thomas Dow, a ship carpenter, employed in assisting at the launch, and who was on the ways between the vessel and the water, in the act of leaving the way, the vessel coming too close to permit him to escape in the usual manner, as the only alternative left to save himself he ran with all possible speed to the river, and dived into the water before he was overtaken. When the vessel was safely launched and it was believed that the man must have been crushed beneath her, he made his appearance on the top of the water, 50 yards from the shore, which distance he had been driven by the force with which the vessel moved the water. When taken up he exhibited no marks of injury further than the wetting he had received and having the top of his head thoroughly greased by the vessel's bottom pressing against it while in the water. In reply to some questions as to how he felt while in his late perilous situation, he jocularly remarked that he was a little discomposed by it, that for a trifling remuneration he would "try another race with her."
The " Canada Floating Dock " we understand is to be taken forthwith to Quebec, where she will be used as a drydock wherein to repair vessels, and it is thought by persons who are supposed to be judges, that she will answer the purpose desired.—Courant

On Tuesday afternoon, the new Steam-tow-boat John Molson was safely launched from Mr. Farrington's ship yard. Owing to the wetness of the day but comparatively few Spectators attended. After the launch she was towed by the New Swiftsure to nearly opposite the mouth of the Lachine Canal, where her two engines, of sixty horse-power each, are now placing on board. She is considered to be a beautiful model. . . . This vessel is built for the St. Lawrence Steam-boat company, and to be commanded by Captain Jesse Armstrong.
The Steamboat Hercules left the foot of the current this morning for Quebec, with the Floating Dock in tow. On her way down she will endeavour to tow the Steam-boat Laprairie off where she now lies, nearly dry, a short distance below Berthier.

Phillip Cain was convicted on Saturday last, at a Special Session of the Peace, of having deserted from the ship Lady Gordon, and was sentenced to twenty days confinement in the Common Gaol, unless the ship left port previous to the expiration of that period.

Lachine Canal:
Since the Lachine Canal opened for the season on the 16th ultimo, till the 16th instant, 290 Boats of different descriptions, have passed through it.— This is independendant of Rafts of Timber and Firewood. A number of boats, owing to the highness of the waters, have, notwithstanding the low rate of Canal tolls, passed the Lachine rapids. Last year two Durham boats were lost in that passage and we have been credibly informed, that the Dundas struck three times a few days ago on the rocks and the Commerce nearly the whole way. Ten new Durham boats have arrived from Prescott and its neighbourhood since the opening of the Canal. This intelligence is truly gratifying to the friends of Provincial improvement and is a precursor of the benefit yet to arise to this Province and this City in particular, for when the Rideau, Welland and Grenville Canals are finished, the whole produce of the country bordering on those water communications will descend to Montreal through the Lachine Canal.

On Saturday last, the Head-Quarters of the 76th Regiment, were transferred from this city to Quebec, and those of the 71st Regiment arrived here. The conduct of the 76th Regiment during their stay in this garrison has been uniformly correct, and we are convinced that they carry with them the good will and respect of the citizens of this place.

JOHN LUCKIN, respectfully acquaints his friends and the public, that the ALBION HOTEL, No. 26 Notre Dame Street, third house east from the New Parish Church, will be opened on Monday 21st inst., for the reception of Company,— The situation of the Albion Hotel, presents peculiar advantages to Travellers, and persons engaged in Mercantile pursuits, being established in the centre of the City, and within a minute's walk of all the Public Offices.— The elevated site of this Building ensures to its apartments, a free circulation of air.

DIED
At Terrebonne, on the 25th instant, Joseph Clement Esq., at the advanced age of 80 years. He was one of the few Canadians who volunteered their services for their Country in General Burgoyne's Expedition to Saratoga in 1777. Mr. Clement was then a Sergeant in Captain Morrins company but from his unvariable good conduct, he was on his return home promoted to Ensigncy. In 1801 he got charge of a company, and this year His Excellency the Commander in Chief, was pleased to allow him the rank of Major on the retired List of Militia Officers. His wife died two years since, at age 76 and his brother who had accompanied him in the Expedition to Saratoga, died suddenly in February at age 72.

Mr. Malhoit, to whom they owed about £20 sent his son in pusuit of them ; he got to Three Rivers before the Lady of the Lake, and took them into custody, received payment of his account, and let them go.—Old Gazette [they very ingeniously landed their baggage at Three Rivers and forgot to pay the steam-boat fare.]

Advertisement
A WIFE WANTED, by a young man of a most amiable and virtuous disposition, who is in the prime of life and beauty, and consequently, in the perfect and lively possession of all his faculties. The lady must be young, handsome, and intelligent ; have a competant knowledge of house-keeping, a decent semptsress, quite aufait in the economy of shift-making ; and last, though not least, be perfectly free from either the giggling foolery, or stiff-laced prudery, that predominates so much in the wife-market of this good city at the present writing. With regard to accomplishment, if she cannot tell a piano-forte from a wheel-barrow, so much the better, as there will be some chance for having a little quietness in the house ; and on no account must she be eternally squalling 'Love's Young Dream,' 'A Te— to Friendship,' or 'Oh ! 'Tis Love ;' not only to the annoyance of ' her lord and master,' but to the horror of every one possessing a pair of ears. In respect to dancing, two public balls per winter, exclusive of an occasional family hop now and then, will be permitted ; but only on the condition of not walzing with young men, to make the husband look cheap and feel uncomfortable.— A slight acquaintance with the Waverly novels will be tolerated, should a disposition to literature envince itself after the honey-moon ; but no sighing, and groaning, and dying over 'Lalla Rookh,' or, 'The Corsair'— In short, and to be brief—no countenance whatever will be shown to any of that sickly sort of stuff which boarding school girls call romantic feelings, or any similar nonsense which may possibly interfere with the lady's maternal duties.— a numerous and blooming progeny being contemplated as the blissful fruit of a happy union.
It will doubtless be expected that something should be said of the particular points of personal attractions required. If possible, a tall figure, possessing that voluptuous, rounding contour of form so much admired by men of taste in these matters, would be preferred. Eyes of any colour excepting green or red, would be more acceptable, if their glance should ordinarily, like a mathematical figure, diverge from a right line ; as the gentleman himslef is blessed with a slight, but graceful obliquity of vision, and is anxious for the sake of family quiet, to leave no room for for reflection either on or from his own or his spouse's bright orbs. Hair of any colour but carrotty, (and that he condemns in toto) and which he would prefer as the natural growth of the head it adorns, as he feels a particular dislike to these horrid unnatural bunches of cork screw curls, which tonseurs and the ladies term frizettes, but which the resurrection-men from whom the raw material is procured, emphatically and technically vend under the appellation of 'dead hair.'
Application to be made to J.H.W. care of the Editor of this paper, who is fully empowered to grant whatever further information may be required, and to whom it is requested, that such ladies as may be so tenderly disposed, will be kind enough to send in their tenders endorsed as " Proposals of Marriage."
N.B. No objection whatever to an old maid or a young widow provided the one has a quantum suff of the needful, or the other is particularly beautiful, not over her twentieth year, and done nursing her first child.

Moses Benson, a black man, Cook on board the Carricks, now in port, was drowned yesterday evening. He, to show his dexterity in diving, went on the anchor from which he plunged into the river. It is supposed that after he dived he rose under the vessel, as the body, though diligently searched for, could not be found.

The steam-boat Laprairie was safely re-launched on Tuesday evening, from the place where she ran aground about three weeks ago. She will leave this evening for Quebec at nine o'clock.

The following is a comparative statement of the arrivals last year with those of this on the 4th June, viz:—
Years Vessels Tonnage Settlers
1826 241 67,121 3,670
1827 186 49,339 4,215
At this period of the year there appears a diminution in our trade of 17,782 ton compared with last year. There is little doubt that this diminuation will be proportionately maintained in the trade of the whole year....
