The Richard Sands, Owens, hence 5th July, for Liverpool, was fallen in with on the 29th ult. near Magdalen Islands, abandoned and all her masts gone, by the Majestic, arrived on Friday from Leith.

At. St. Therese, on Saturday last, aged 16 years, Mr. John Richardson, son of Captain Joseph Richardson, of the Steamboat St. Lawrence.

At his residence, Plantagenet, Ottawa District, on the 7th August, suddenly of apoplexy, John Chesser Esq., in the 59th year of his age. He was one of the first settlers in Plantagenet, whither he removed in 1813. From the warm interest and active part he took in promoting the welfare of the community among whom he resided ( and of which he might justly be called founder and the father.) His death has made a public breach, which cannot soon or easily be repaired. He has left a widow and numerous family to lament their sudden bereavement of an affectionate husband and dutiful father. His remains were attended to the place of interment by a numerous concourse of sympathising relatives and friends, and an appropriate and impressive funeral address was delivered on the occasion.

The JOHN MOLSON Steamer, J.D. Armstrong, Master, will leave this port for Quebec on TUESDAY the 19th instant, at 12 o'clock, noon, in time for the Races.
She will leave Quebec the following day (Thursday) at 6 o'clock A.M. on a Pleasure Trip down the River, and return the same evening, which will afford the passengers a view of the beautiful scenery below.
She will leave Quebec on her return to this place on the Saturday evening following.

His Majesty's Ship Tyne, arrived on Sunday [at Halifax], has brought in 152 men, women and children (including 10 of the crew and the mate) saved from the brig Dispatch [Despatch], bound from Londonderry to Quebec, wrecked off Newfoundland. .....see the full account and list of passengers saved......

An event without parallel in the annals of marine misfortune, occurred on board the brig Mary Russell, Captain Stewart of Cork, on her passage home from Barbadoes, which arrived at Cove on Thursday.
There were on board, besides the master and mate, 8 men and 4 boys ; of these, six seamen and a naval gentleman, passenger in her, were found dead in the cabin on Monday morning last, by Captain Callender, of the Mary Stubbs, of Belfast, (which was also on her passage home from Barbadoes, and spoke the Mary Russel on the above morning,) having been killed on the day before by the Captain, according to the statement of the four boys. The cause assigned by the Master to Capt. Callender was, an attempt on the part of the crew to mutiny, and his apprehension that they would take away his life ; but to save himself, that he induced them to be tied in the cabin, each singly, before another was called down ; and when all were rendered powerless, that he put those seven to death with a crow bar ! The mate named Smith, and one sailor named Howes, by some means extricated themselves, and escaped death ; after being wounded in several places. It appears he was in the act of tying the boys also, when the Mary Stubbs hove in sight. Capt. Callender held by the Mary Russell and saved Capt. Stewart from being drowned, he having leaped twice into the sea for that purpose. Wednesday again, for the third time, he flung himself overboard off Castletown, and was picked up by a hooker. A warrant for the apprehension of Capt. Stewart, has been issued, by Sir Antony Perrier, on the information of Capt. Callender, and an inquest held on the bodies of the seven men. We cannot conceive that anything but insanity could induce a human being to imbrue his hands in the blood of seven fellow creatures under circumstances so horrible as the above represents. —Limerick Chronicle
[Captain Stewart of the Mary Russell, is known here, as having commanded both the Sir James Kempt and the Albion, engaged in the Irish trade. He must have been under the influence of insanity to have committed such a cold blooded and horrible act.]

Quebec, August 21, 1828

The steamboats brought down passengers yesterday and Tuesday for 10s., cabin fare included ; and takes them up for 15s. fare also included. A great number came down from Montreal and Three Rivers in consequence, and probably the sum total of the receipts was fully as great as it would have been, if they had charged their former prices.— Old Quebec Gazette

The John Molson steamer, sailed this morning on a trip down the St. Lawrence, intending to pass by the south channel, throught the traverse, crossing below Isle aux Coudres, and returning by the north channel, a distance of about 140 miles. There is perhaps not a sail of the same extent in the world, where more beautiful scenery is met with. The South shore, now dressed in her richest attire, is generally a level country, bounded in the distance by a range of hills, which strike the St. Lawrence where the John Molson will cross. The north shore is high and sterile. For a distance of 50 miles to St. Joachim, mountains rising1500 to 2000 feet, throw their huge forms uninterruptedly upon the river, and seen on a fine day like this, with the numerous low and fertile islands, and the below expanse of water, unite the grand, romantic and picturesque, on a scale very rarely seen.
The band of the 66th went down with the boat. There appeared to be about 70 or 80 passengers.—ib

Yesterday was the first day of the Quebec races. The Governor's Plate was won by Mr. Gibb's Filho de Puta. The Quebec Stakes was won by Mr. Gibb's Snap. The Cavalry Cup by Mr. Gibb's Filho de Puta, the other horses entered in the Cup refusing to run. — The Welter Stakes were won by Mr. Duchesnay's Yotzi. The Macaroni Stakes by Captain Temple's Kingston.
Owing to the very superior swiftness of Mr. Gibb's horses, the first races were without much interest.
The horses were bought at a very high price, we hear about 250 for both. Mr. Gibb deserves credit. Since we are to have races, let them be good. If Mr. Gibb will only keep his horses for the Quebec course, and enter them often, either there will be good running or very little. —ib

The Colonial brig Kingfisher, Rayside, at Quebec from Halifax, brought up a Mr. Arnott, wife and eleven children, who, it will be remembered, were wrecked some time since on the coast of Newfoundland, in the Despatch from Londonderry, bound for Quebec, losing the whole of their valuable stock of farming implements, with £150 in sovereigns.
His excellency the Earl of Dalhousie, in that true spirit of liberality which has always distinguished him during his residence amongst us, has presented this distressed family with a most handsome pecuniary donation, and furnished them with provisions and a free passage to Montreal.

The consumption of Opium, in China, amounts to the sum of eight millions of dollars annually. A most rapid increase has taken place of late years in the consumption of Malwa Opium, over that of Benares and Padna ; the quantity of the former consumed in the years 1826-27, being 5,630 chests, while that of the other two qualities was 2,723 chests. Upon a rough calculation, the consumption of the past season, down to the 1st January 1828, is 9,958 chests, valued at 9,867,900 dollars, which shows an increase above the consumption of the previous year, of about 700 chests. The stock of Opium in the receiving ships at Canton, on the 1st January, independent of that in the hands of the Chinese speculators, was 1,682 chests ; which, when added to the new Opium, leaves the consumption of China, for the year 1828-29, 12,682 chests ; which will be about 3,000 chests above the average consumption. It was, however, reported at Singapore, at the latest date, that the next year's crop of Patna and Benares, was likely to be totally lost in consequence of the want of rain. Private Bills on London at Singapore, were at 4s.2d. per dollar. Freight to London was at £4.10s. (dead weight), and £6.6s.10d. (measurement). The only Opium importation for the season had been 105 chests of Patna and Benares, of which about 60 chests had been sold at 1,100 to 1,150 dollars per chest for the former, and 1,080 to 1,140 for the latter.

The Gore Gazette mentions that along Talbot Road and through the Long Point county, where-ever there is a mill dam, all the inhabitants for two or three miles around are suffering from fever — that in some families there are not enough persons in health, to attend upon the sick : while in neighbourhoods in which those fruitful sources of disease do not exist, the inhabitants are healthy. The fevers which have prevailed this season, it observes, are intermittent — degenerating in some cases, when neglected, or improperly treated, into typhus mitior — but generally they are light ; very few cases, in comparison with the aggregate number, having proved fatal.

The steam-boat John Molson, which arrived here yesterday afternoon, at ten minutes past five o'clock, left Quebec on the preceeding evening at half past eight o'clock, having performed the trip in twenty hours and forty minutes, the quickest run ever made up the St. Lawrence by any steam-boat without the aid of sails.

On Tuesday morning, at 9 o'clock, the telgraphic signal was made at the Blockhouse, announcing that the Yacht Forte, Captain Miller, was in sight, having on board His Excellency Sir Thomas John Cochrane. The Forte came to anchor in the narrows, about 1 o'clock,— 30 days last from Falmouth,— and at half past 6 p.m. His Excellency left the vessel, in his barge, under a salute, accompanied on shore by Miss Cochrane, (His Excellency's daughter,) — her Governess and Capt. Bruce (Colonial Secretary, — all of whom came passengers with him — Lieut. Cols. Brooking) Dunscomb, Aide-de-camp in waiting and proceeded to the Ordinance Wharf where His Excellency landed under a salute of 19 guns from Fort Townshend, and was received by a Guard of Honour from the Royal Veteran Companies. We were happy to observe that His Excellency, after an absence of ten months from amongst us, appeared in excellent health and spirits — and evinced, by his urbanity and friendly manner to all who approached him, the pleasure and gratification which he felt at returning to the seat of his Government. The community were forward in proving their respect and attachment to His Excellency ; for we have seldom or never witnessed, on similar occasions, so large an assemblage of the inhabitants.— Royal Gazette

There lately died at St. Therese, Joseph Barbeau, about 90 years of age, who had for about three years coachman to GENERAL MONTCALM, whom he attended with saddle horses on the field of battle at the plains of ABRAHAM. He was born at Charlesbourg, near Quebec. He has left several great grandchildren and an aged widow, to whom he had been married for upwards of 60 years.

At the Cork Assizes, on the 4th of August, Captain William Stewart of the Mary Russell, who it may be remembered, killed seven persons on board of his brig, when on its homeward voyage, was tried for the murder of one of the individuals, Captain Raynes. After a trial which lasted upwards of eight hours, the Jury retired, and in an hour and a half returned into Court with a verdict of " Guilty, but we consider him to have been in an insane state of mind at the time. " On their verdict being read, the Court would not receive it and directed the Jury to rectify it. Without retiring from the box, they then gave in a verdict of " Not Guilty, having committed the act when labouring under mental derangement. " The boy Rickards, who had assisted Captain Stewart, and had been confined in Bridewell, was then ordered to be discharged.
