Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1829

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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1829.

note: There seems to be under-reporting by the Montreal Gazette, of the numbers' of settlers and names of cabin passengers on vessels arriving at Quebec for the year 1829, so do not conclude that any such vessel did not carry passengers.

Montreal.
Detachments for the 71st and 79th Regiments arrived here on Friday from Quebec in the steam-boat Richelieu, and proceeded early next morning to join their regiments in Upper Canada. These detachments with others for the regiments at Quebec and this garrison, came from England in the Transport Neva, Lieut. Adams, R.N. Agent, which arrived at Quebec on Wednesday.

As something new and curious, we copy for the edification of our Mercantile friends the following very charitable and characteristic effusions of the York Observer:—
" The importations of Dry goods from Europe, during the present season are of incalculable advantage. The Lower Canada merchants who have been devouring for years the fruits of this Province, are in a sad plight. The ruin of many of them is inevitable. They have fleeced and driven to beggary by their enormous charges, hundreds of families ; and now, that their day of calamity has arrived, we cannot pity them. Goods are sold at the store of Messrs. Dougall, Gamble, &c. of York, 35 per cent. cheaper than they can be obtained at Montreal. This is owing to the Montreal Merchants purchasing at a credit of twelve to eighteen months in England, whilst our York merchants pay cash. "

The ship John Porter, Maxwell, sailed from Quebec for Dublin on Thursday night, exactly four days after her arrival in port, having to return and sail again this Fall to complete her three voyages.

QUEBEC and BOSTON.—
When General Craig was Governor of Canada (1807–1811) [General Sir James Henry Craig], he caused a road to be made from Quebec to the lines, in the direction to Boston, the enterprising citizens of Vermont and New Hampshire made roads in their states to promote the project — and a stage was established to run directly from the capital of New England to the capital of the British Provinces. The stage ran for some months and the papers and letters were conveyed by this route ; but the population was too sparse to support it. General Craig was recalled — it had no aid from the different governments — and was discontinued. Since then the road has been neglected, and trees have grown again and encumbered it. But Governor Kempt, the present patriotic-ruler in Canada, has turned his attention to it — the obstructions are to be removed, and the British government has ordered that emigrants shall be encouraged to settle on its sides. Many lots have been laid out for them, and great numbers have gone thither. This circumstance may revive travel on this route. Major Starks once endeavoured to forma a company to make a Turnpike road from Boston to the Canada Line, and obtained the neccessary surveys and drafts. Quebec lies nearly north of Boston and the distance is only 270 miles.— Boston Palladium

Shipping Intelligence.—
The ship Princess Royal, King, hence for Grenada, 17th June, was capsized by whirlwind in lat. 38, 12 days after sailing from Quebec. The Captain and crew were 6 days on the bottom of the vessel, and 6 days in the jolly-boat, during which time they obtained sustenance through the medium of a hole made with great difficulty in the bottom of the Ship.— The whole were picked up (with the exception of two boys who were drowned in the cabin,) by the Rolla of Baltimore, bound to Amsterdam. Captain King subsequently went on board the Ridley, and has arrived at Quebec.
 
The Transport Neva was to sail from Quebec on Monday for Halifax, with Convicts, and with Invalids for Chatham.

We are informed of a melancholy accident from lightning, which took place in the parish of Lachenaie, whereby Miss Priscelle, daughter of Mr. Lewis Gratton, an interesting girl of about 18 years of age lost her life. She was employed in spinning in the upper part of the house when the storm commenced, and, being as was supposed aroused by its violence, went toward the window where she received the fatal stroke. Her death was instantaneous ; and after effecting its fatal mission, the fluid passed down the chimney to the lower floor, tore up the stones of the hearth, and so severely shocked a little girl of about eleven years of age, that she remained for some time apparently lifeless, but is, we are glad to hear, now recovering. The dead body had no marks of violence except a slight spot on one shoulder ; one of the shoes of the deceased was destroyed, but nothing else.—Courant

Montreal.—
Count Ney, son of the celebrated French General, Marshal Ney, arrived here a few days ago and proceeded to Quebec on Monday evening in the Chambly, steamboat. The Honorable Littleton W. Tazewell of Virginia, and Phillp Hone, Esq., of New York, were in town a few days ago.

The Right Honorable the Earl of Dalhousie, Commander in Chief of the Forces in the East Indies, sailed from Portsmouth for Calcutta in the Pallas, of 42 guns, Captain Fitz Clarence, on the 13th July. The Pallas put into Plymouth on the 16th, owing to a strong westerly wind, but sailed again on the 20th. The Right Rev'd. Dr. Turner, the new Bishop of Calcutta, was also a passenger. The Pallas is to touch at Madeira on her voyage to India.

Mr. James Newbigging, 24, who left York last winter in pursuit of the notorious swindler, Henry Hamilton, has arrived here, having come as passenger in the ship St. George, 408 tons, Captain John Taubman, from Liverpool to New York on 25th August. We understand that Hamilton has been released from his confinement at Paris, as he solemnly declared that he had no other property than the £4700, which had been seized in the possession of the banking house of Rothschild. It is supposed that this amount, added to the property which Hamilton left at York, will give to his creditors about ten shillings in the pound on the amount of their respective claims.


On the night of Thursday last, about 11 o'clock p.m. as the steam-boat Waterloo was lying at Mr. Wurtele's wharf at William Henry [Sorel], Mrs. Giroux of Berthier fell overboard, and although the night was very dark, was timely secured by the intrepid and manly exertions of Mr. Martel Paulet, formerly of the Richelieu steam-boat, and now proprietor of the " Sorel Hotel. " Mr. Paulet, it seems, heard a splashing in the water, but as the steam-boat was close to the wharf, he made a plunge at the stern and rescued Mrs. Giroux, then sinking and exhausted. What appears remarkable is, that Mrs. G. was, some years ago, saved among many others by the same intrepid person, when the steam-boat De Salaberry took fire near Cap Rouge. It may appear extraordinary that Mr. Paulet, although strongly recommended by Dr. Von Iffland to the Humane Society of London, for saving the lives of many persons, should remain unrewarded by any expression of public feeling.
Here follows a list of the persons saved from and untimely death by Mr. Paulet.
1. John Moore, a boy on board the De Salaberry, between Chambly and St. Mark.
2. a man from on board the Lady Sherbrooke.
3. a man from on board the Richelieu in Lake St. Peter.
4. a woman in port at Montreal from on board the Richelieu.
5. a man at Montreal who fell between the Richelieu and Malsham.
6. a boy who fell from Wurtele's wharf at William Henry.
7. Mrs. Giroux from on board Waterloo.
Mr. Paulet made many other attempts to rescue others, but from his ill state of health was incapable of accomplishing his humane object. What reward can be made to such a man? The people of William Henry will show an example by presenting Mr. Paulet with a gold medal with a suitable inscription, and, no doubt the owners of the steam-boats and the public in general will reward him by something more substantial.

Montreal.
His Excellency Sir Hilgrove Turner and family, arrived here on Saturday evening from Quebec in the steam-boat St. Lawrence, and proceeded yesterday to the United States, on their return to Bermuda.

We copy from the Herald of Saturday, the following relative to Mr. Newbigging's journey in pursuit of Hamilton, to which we referred in our last paper. We observe that our contemporary anticipates that Hamilton's estate will pay fifteen shillings in the pound — we sincerely hope it may,— but the most sanguine, we believe, only look forward to twelve shillings and sixpence, and ten shillings will in all probability be the total amount of the dividend:—
" On Tuesday last, Mr. James Newbigging, who had gone in pursuit of the swindler Henry Hamilton, arrived in this city. He left York about the end of March and went direct to Philadelphia, having received information at Buffalo which induced him to go to that city. When there, he, in company with Mr. Breckenridge, succeeded in securing £400, in notes of hand, belonging to the fugitive. He also ascertained that Hamilton had sailed from Philadelphia in a brig bound to Liverpool, and which left on the 17th March. He instantly left for New York, and took his passage with the first packet ship — the Silas Richards, which sailed on the 8th April. He arrived at Liverpool on the evening of the 1st May ; and on the following day ascertained that Hamilton had left the vessel in which he took his passage in the Channel, and landed at Kinsale in Ireland. Mr. Newbigging then wrote to a house in London, detailing what he had learned respecting the swindler ; and also that some of his bills had been accepted at Liverpool and remitted to London. He then set off for Dublin, in the expectation of finding Hamilton there ; to which place the latter had directed the the proceeds of the bills recovered in Philadelphia to be remitted to him. On arriving at Dublin, Mr. Newbigging found the friend, through whom Hamilton expected the remittence, dead, but got sight of a letter from his friend in Philadelphia, telling him to warn Hamilton to keep out of the way, as " the hounds were on the track. " Mr. Newbigging then proceeded to Kinsale, at which place Hamilton had landed on the 10th April. From thence he traced him to Cork, where he found he had taken a steerage passage to Bristol, and afterwards had gone by Bath to Southampton, where he took passage to Havre. — Mr. Newbigging, on leaving Bath, proceeded to London, where he found in consequence of the information sent by him from Liverpool, several gentlemen had gone to Paris in pursuit of the fugitive, where they ascertained he then was. Mr. Newbigging also ascertained that Mr. Douglas, who, like himself, was in pursuit of Hamilton, had, in consequence of the same information, left the previous evening for Paris. Mr. Newbigging instantly set off, and reached the French capital on Sunday, the 17th May, about ten hours after Mr. Douglas' arrival. On the Tuesday following, Hamilton was seen by the parties in pursuit through a glass door in one of the apartments in the banking house of Rothschilds. The proper affidavits were then made out, and in two days afterwards Hamilton was lodged in prison. After about a fortnight's negociation, he agreed to give up all the funds in his possession, of which any trace could be got, and also Powers of Attorney for the collection of his debts in America. The amount recovered in money and notes amounted to about £5000, which with his stock in trade and other property in Upper Canada, is expected to realize to his creditors about fifteen shillings in the pound.

Montreal, September 9th 1829

We have been requested to state that a girl of about 14 years old, of the name Jane McLaughlan, was sent out from Ireland by her father, John McLaughlan, who lives near Killesandra, County Cavan, Ireland, in the care of a man named Arthur Ennis (or Innis,) and his family, to her uncle William McLaughlan, at present residing in some part of Upper Canada. When they arrived at Montreal about two months ago, this little girl was taken ill, and sent to the General Hospital :— that whilst there, Ennis and family left Montreal with (as the girl states) £8 belonging to her, and her clothes ; — and that in consequence of the departure of Ennis during her illness, with the money and clothes, she is now unable to proceed to her uncle, of whose residence in Upper Canada she is quite ignorant.
Editors of newspapers in Upper and Lower Canada are respectfully requested to give publicity to this document, that her uncle may, if possible, receive intelligence of her, and apply for further information to the Rev'd. A.F. Atkinson, Curate of Christ Church, Montreal.

WONDERFUL YOUTHS.—
The ship Sachem, 396 tons, from Siam, arrived at Boston on Sunday (16th August), has on board two Siamese youths, males, 18 years of age, their bodies connected from their birth. They appear to be in good health, and apprently contented with their confined situation. We have seen and examined this freak of nature. It is one of the great living curiosities we ever saw. The two boys are about 5 feet in height, of well proportioned frames, strong and active, good natured and of a pleasant expression of countenance — and withal intelligent and sensible — exhibiting the appearance of two well made Siamese youths, with the exception that by a substance apparently bony or cartiliginous, about seven inches in circumference and four in length, proceeding from the numbical [sic] region of each, they are firmly united together. They have a good appetite, appear lively and run about the deck and cabin of the ship with the same facility that any two healthy lads would do, with their arms over each others shoulders, this being the position in which they move about. They will probably be exhibited to the public, when proper arrangements have been made. They will be objects of great curiousity, particularly to the medical faculty. Their unnatural union is not more of a curiousity, than the vigourous health they enjoy, and their apparent entire contentedness with their condition. One of the boys is named CHANG — the other ENG ; together they are called Chang-Eng.— Boston Patriot
[the 'original' Siamese twins, were brought to Boston by Scottish merchant, Robert Hunter, 26 and Captain Abel Coffin.]

Passengers.—
The Eggerton Transport, was to sail from Quebec on Friday for Portsmouth. Major Eden and lady and Captain Drought of the 15th Regiment, and three Warrant Officers from the Lake were going passengers in her.
Among the passengers by the Francois I. from New York for Havre, are the Rev'd. Thomas Carbrey and Mr. Benjamin Smith, of Canada.
In the York, from New York for Liverpool, we observe the name of Mr. Harris, of Canada, in the list of passengers.
Mr. Justice Boulton and Mr. & Mrs. George Boulton, of Upper Canada, and Captain Blair of the 15th Regiment came passengers in the Columbia from London to New York.

From Mr. Neilson's Quebec Gazette of Thursday, we copy the following Commercial article, in which our Upper Canada and other readers connected with the Lumber trade, will perceive with pleasure the excellent prospects of the Fall business in that article, from the great number of vessels lately arrived at Quebec :—
 
" The light easterly wind of Saturday brought up about 90 sail of large ships, principally in ballast ; yesterday and today about 20 more arrived, making an average of about 30,000 tons. The unfavourable state of last season for drawing out timber from the interior of New Brunswick is said to be a principal cause of this unusual increase ; a number of the ships destined for the lower ports having taken charters for Quebec.
The following is a comparison of the number of vessels, their tonnage, and the number of emigrants arrived at this port to the 14th September, in this and the last year :—
Years Vessels Tonnage Settlers
1828 508 127,866 11,160
1829 708 195,301 12,823
The increase of shipping has effected a great rise in the value of timber. At this season last year pine and oak, which form the principal part of the cargoes, sold the first at £2-2d. to £3-1d. and the latter at 10d. a cubic foot. The following are the present nominal prices :— Deals £10 a £10-10s. ; white pine 7d. red 7d. 12d. a 13d. Oak 1s.-3d. a 1s.-6d. Staves £20.
Those who have contracted for the delivery of timber in the home market at the usual average prices must of course suffer great losses, while on the other hand those who bring their timber to the Quebec market from the Upper Country, and have not entered into contracts, but calculated upon the average prices must make full a hundred per cent above what they looked for. These gains will chiefly fall to the Lower and Upper Canada dealers and lumber merchants.
During all this, the home market, where the ultimate payments must be obtained, remains fully as low, if not lower than last year, and from the great imports from the Baltic will likely continue so. Yet vessels here must obtain cargoes, and the prices support their increased rates. The market will be made bare, inferior number shipped, prices finally hurt to some extent, and timber ships, not finding cargoes early next sping, will arrive late or not be so numerous.
