Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1830

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, Irish Vindicator IV 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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1830.

January 4th - MG It appears by the Quebec papers that the pilot of the Ann and Mary, which, it will be remembered, was the last vessel that left that port this year, has returned by way of Boston. He was taken from the brig on the 11th December [1829] in lat. 19 12, long. 57 20 by the Salus, bound to the last mentioned port.
   
  Navigation of the St. Lawrence from Neilson's Quebec Gazette
  The Montreal Committee of Trade passed on the 2nd instant, a series of Resolutions against granting a free navigation of the St. Lawrence, and opening the West India Trade to the Americans, as being contrary to the recognised law of nations and the commercial interests of the Province. Jay's Treaty of 1791, however, actually grants the free navigation to American citizens from Quebec upwards. Accidental circumstances only have prevented the clause from being enforced. Instead of being the recognised law that the Americans have not a claim to the navigation of the St. Lawrence, it appears to us clearly a natural right, and at any rate a fair subject of negotiation.
Negotiations regarding the free navigation of the St. Lawrence were renewed in 1823. They arose out of the settlement of the boundary line, and more particularly from the duties under the Canada Trade Act of 1822, which alarmed the exporters of produce from those parts of the State of New York adjacent to the waters falling into the St. Lawrence. The matter was brought by Mr. Richardson before the Legislative Council of the Province in 1824, and the address voted to His Majesty was communicated to the Assembly, which on the 1st March refused to concur with the Council, years two, nays nineteen. President Adams notice of the negotiation in his Message appears to have suggested the Address in remonstrance. We can certainly find no good reason to doubt that such a concession by Great Britain would in any wise be injurious to us, either if the navigation were limited by Quebec or the sea. The best policy for the Canadas clearly is, to allow as much to pass down the St. Lawrence as possible. Every addition to the transit of productions is a real gain. Great Britain is the best judge how far a free navigation may injure the trade of the Empire or the security of her possessions. We think that she will also gain more by granting a free navigation to the sea than by refusing it. The greater intercourse with the populous counties south of the Lake will tend to increase the sale of English manufactures, materially injure the vested interests of the United States in canals, and by all the operations attendant on the transit of goods largely benefit the the Canadas ; and the latter both from the large sums laid out on them, and the late liberal policy England wishes to see her prosperous. Had a free outlet to American produce by the St. Lawrence been enjoyed by the United States, it is very doubtful whether the Erie, Ogdensburgh, and Champlain Canals and their numerous branches, would ever have been constructed. We must now contend with these channels of transport to the American seaboard, where, unlike our own, the markets are open to the trade of the whole world.
We have not learned upon what authority the information on which the Montreal Resolutions are founded, rests. It is however, likely to be correct. If we recollect well, Lord Goderich acquiesced in the claim as far as regarded the navigation above Quebec, and it is probable that the recent discussions on the subject and the irritated and depressed condition of the English manufacturing interests, have rather tended to confirm the views of the English administration, and disposed it to concede a good deal to the reduction of the United States Tariff. It would be as easy for American vessels to pass in and out of the St Lawrence without prejudice to English ships as they now arrive and depart from Halifax. Whenever they sailed to markets where the Colonies are protected, the cargoes would pay duty. The United States cannot now and for a long time will not be able to introduce their manufactures in Canada. The free navigation of the St. Lawrence by its citizens, will open their whole northern frontier to the introduction of English manufactures.
We are happy to see the nonsense of Republican contagion, &c. discarded from these Resolutions. Under the free operation of our constitution we have nothing to fear from contagion ; it is only under its abuse that it might be spread ; and whether our intercourse is limited to the aboriginal inhabitants of Hudson's Bay and the Russian possessions on this continent, or is laid open to the enterprize and intelligence of the hosts of American citizens which throw themselves in every new channel opened to their commerce, rational freedom must very soon prevail on the whole continent of America. It is now indigenous to its soil.
   
January 11th - MG Emigration
  The following humorous letter on the comforts of Emigration is given in Mr. Hood's Comic Annual :—
  " Squampash Flatts, 9th November, 1827
  Dear Brother, — here we are, thank Providence, safe and well, and in the finest country you ever saw. At this moment I have before me the sublime expanse of Squampash Flatts — the majestic Mudiboo winding through the midst — with the magnificent range of the Squab mountains in the distance. But the prospect is impossible to describe in a letter ! I might as well attempt a panorama in a pill-box ! We have fixed our settlement on the left bank of the river. In crossing the rapids we lost most of our heavy baggage and all our iron work ; but by great good fortune we saved Mrs. Paisley's grand piano and the children's toys. Our infant city consists of of three log-huts and one of clay, which, however, on the second day, fell in to the ground landlords. We have now built it up again ; and, all things considered, are as comfortable as we could expect, — and have christened our settlement New London, in compliment to the old metropolis. We have one of the logs houses to ourselves — or at least shall have when we build a new hog-sty. We burnt down the first one in making a bonfire to keep off the wild beasts, and for the present the pigs are in the parlour. As yet our rooms are rather usefully than elegantly furnished. We have gutted the Grand Upright, and it makes a convenient cupboard ; the chairs were obliged to blaze at our bivouacs, — but thank Heaven we have never leisure to sit down, so do not miss them. My boys are contented, and will be well when they have goy over some awkward accidents in lopping and felling. — Mrs. P. grumbles a little, but it is her custom to lament most when she is in the midst of comforts. She complains of solitude, and says she could enjoy the very stiffest of stiff visits. The first time we lighted a fire in our new abode, a large serpent came down the chimney, which I looked upon as a good omen. However, as Mrs. P. is not partial to snakes, and the heat is supposed to to attract those reptiles, we have dispensed with fires ever since. — As for wild beasts, we hear them howling and roaring round the fence every night from dusk till daylight, but we have only been inconvenienced by one lion. The first time he came, in order to rid of the brute peaceably, we turned out an old ewe, with which he was well satisfied : — but ever since he comes to us as regular as clock-work for his mutton ; and if we do not soon contrive to cut his acquaintance, we shall hardly have a sheep in the flock. It would have been easy to shoot him, being well provided with muskets ; but Barnaby mistook our remnant of gunpowder for onion seed, and sowed it all in the kitchen garden. We did not try to trap him into a pit-fall ; but after twice catching Mrs. P. and every one of the children in turn, it was given up. They are now, however, perfectly at ease about the animal, for they never stir out of doors at all ; and, to make them quite comfortable, I have blocked up all the windows and and barricaded the door. We have lost only one of our number since we came ; namely, Diggory, the market gardener, from Glasgow, who went out one morning to botanise, and never came back. I am much surprised at his absconding, as he had nothing but a spade to go off with. Chippendale, the carpenter, was sent after him, but did not return ; and Gregory, the smith has been out after them these two days. I have just despatched Mudge, the herdsman, to go look for all three, and hope he will soon give a good account of them, as they are the most useful men in the whole settlement, and, in fact, indispensable to its very existence. The river Mudiboo is deep and rapid, and said to swarm with alligators, though I have heard but of three being seen at one time, and none of those above eighteen feet long ; this, however, is immaterial, as we do not use the river fluid, which is thick and dirty, but draw all our water from natural wells and tanks. Poisonous springs are rather common, but are easily distinguished by containing no fish or living animal. Those, however, which swarm with frogs, toads, newts, efts, &c. are harmless, and may be safely used for culinary purposes. In short, I know of no drawback but one, which I am sanguine, may be got over hereafter, and do earnestly hope and advise, if things are no better in England than when I left you, and as many as you can persuade, will sell off all, and come over to this African Paradise. The drawback I speak of is this ; although I have never seen any one of the creatures, it is too certain that the mountains are inhabited by a race of monkeys, whose cunning and mischievous talents exceed even the most incredible stories of their tribe. No human art or vigilance seems of avail ; we have planned ambuscades, and watched night after night, but no attempt has been made, yet the moment the guard was relaxed, we were stripped without mercy. I am convinced they must have spies night and day on our motions, yet so secretly and cautiously, that no glimpse of one has yet been seen by any of our people. Our last crop was cut and carried off with the precision of an English harvesting. Our spirit stores —(you will be amazed to hear that these creatures pick locks with the dexterity of London burglars)— have been broken open and ransacked, though half the establishment were on the watch ; and the brutes have been off to their mountains, five miles distant, without even the dogs giving an alarm. I could almost persuade myself at times, such as their supernatural knowledge, swiftness, and invisibility, that we have to contend with evil spirits. I long for you advice, to refer to on this subject ;
  And am, dear Philip, your loving brother, Ambrose Mawe.
 

P.S. Since writing the above, you will be concerned to hear the body of poor Diggory has been found, horribly mangled by wild beasts. The fate of Chippendale, Gregory and Mudge, is no longer doubtful. The old lion has brought the lioness, and, the sheep being gone, they have made a joint attack upon the bullock-house. The Mudiboo has overflowed, and Squampash Flatts are a swamp. I have just discovered that the monkeys are my own rascals, that I brought out from England. We are coming back as fast as we can."

   
January 14th - MG The packet ship Boston, Captain Mackay, sailed yesterday for Liverpool with a favourable wind. Messrs. Charles Lindsay, William Stevenson and Benjamin Ansell, all of Montreal, and Mrs. Henderson, of Boston, went passengers in the cabin. There were also eight steerage passengers. We are glad to perceive that our Canada friends occasionally patronize the Boston and Liverpool Packet Company ; and it is to be hoped they will often direct their steps in this city, when on their way to the Mother County. When the road through Maine to Canada is completed, we may expect to divide with the New Yorkers the custom of travellers from Montreal and Quebec. Our packets are as good as those which sail from New York, and are commanded by as experienced seamen and skilful navigators as any that traffic on the mighty deep. We have understood, too, that the tables spread on board the Boston packets affords as pleasing a variety for the palate, as can be found elsewhere and that a passenger who prefers to swim in champagne to salt water can be accommodated if he does not use a bathing tub. — Boston Commercial Gazette.
   
January 18th - MG New York:
Among the passengers by the packet ship York, 8th January for Liverpool, were Messrs. Joseph Masson and J.T. Badgley of Montreal ; Charles Stuart, Edward O'Hara, Charles Noyes and Henry Trinder of Quebec ; Mr. Hardy of England ; Lieut. Jones R.N. and Mr. Coates of Canada.
Commodore Barrie sailed for England in the New York, the packet of the 1st was said to be the bearer on voluminous despatches for the Right. Hon. C.R. Vaughan, the British Minister at Washington, brought to New York by the Secretary of Legation, Mr. Bankhead. Major Wallace of the Bengal Army, and Mr. William Forester of Quebec were also passengers in the same vessel.
In the Francis I, sailed from New York on the 2nd instant for Havre, were Messrs. W.L. Coit and Edward Cheney of Montreal.
   
January 25th - MG Nova Scotia:
The Steamboat which is to ply between Halifax and Dartmouth is completed, machinery on board, and in order. She is a beautiful boat, coppered and finished in a first rate manner by Mr. Lyle, for the Steamboat Company. Her length of deck is one hundred and three feet, width of beam 29 feet, width of deck 35 feet, 176 tons measurement ; her engine is 80 horse power, and is allowed by judges to be of a most superior description. We understand that her fare will be four pence, and that she will make four passages an hour. The Team Boat, which she displaces, frequently made but four trips a day, frequently less, and sometimes in winter could not cross at all. The public have got an elegant exchange. The Steamboat has two commodious cabins ; she brings Dartmouth as it were to the end of the Steamboat wharf, and must have an admirable effect on the life and prosperity of that village. We hope that the steamer will well repay the public spirited gentlemen, who have first given to Halifax one of the wonders of science. The Steamboat, we are happy to state, was safely launched about ten o'clock on Friday evening. She was started in the forenoon on that day, but owing to some defect in the ways stock, after going nearly her length. However, with the kind assistance of Captains Boxer and Travers, and a large party of seamen of their respective ships, the second attempt was successful. The Boat is called the Sir Charles Ogle, in compliment to our worthy Naval Commander in Chief.
   
January 28th - MG Among the passengers by the packet ship Manchester for Liverpool from New York, we observe the names of Mr. & Mrs. T.A. Begly and Mr. J.G. Mackenzie of Montreal, and Messrs. William Atkinson, James Hamilton and W.A. Wanton of Quebec. By the Hudson, from New York, Captains Semple and Arnold of the British Army proceed to England. The Honorable Richard Rush, 49, of Philadelphia came passenger in the Canada, from Liverpool.
   
February 8th - MG Among the passengers, by the 24th December packet for Liverpool, from New York, are Messrs. James Millar and James Fisher of Montreal, and Field, of Quebec.
The packet ship Pacific, the 8th December vessel from New York, in which thirteen gentlemen from Canada proceeded to England, arrived at Liverpool on the 31st of that month. Messrs. C.O. Ermatinger, James Scott, William Smith, T.B. Wragg, Peter Macintosh and Robert Morris of this city, and H.N. Patton of Quebec, were of the number.
   
February 18th - MG Among the passengers by the packet ship George Canning, sailed from New York on the 9th instant for Liverpool, we observe the names of Messrs. D. McNaughton, C.S. Rodier and Alexander Gray of Montreal, and John Macnider of Quebec.
   
February 22nd - MG When we formerly announced the arrival at Liverpool of the packet ship Pacific, at Liverpool, on the 31st December, we, by mistake, connected with our notice the names of the gentlemen, belonging to this city and Quebec, who proceeded to England by the Silas Richards, the 8th December ship from New York. The latter vessel did not arrive at Liverpool till the 5th January. Messrs. C.O. Ermatinger, James Scott, William Smith, T.B. Wragg, Peter Macintosh and Robert Morris of this city, as we announced, were passengers. The passenger on the Pacific were Messrs. A. Clarke, R. Methley, J. Brooke and Charles Stuart, 30, of Quebec ; the last mentioned individual, it will be observed by an obituary notice in this paper, died at sea on the 24th December.
   
March 29th - MG Among the passengers by the packet ship Florida, sailed for Liverpool on the 16th instant, is L.S. O'Connor, Esquire of the British Army. Mrs. John Torrance, Miss S. Torrance, Messrs. A. Hutchinson and Holt, of Montreal, sailed for Liverpool in the Napoleon, the 8th March New York packet ship.
   
April 5th - MG During the ensuing season, Captain Charles Armstrong, formerly of the Chambly, will be the Commander of the Hercules tow-boat, Captain Brush assuming the charge of the British America, when that boat is completed. Captain Perry, of the New Swiftsure, we understand, will be Captain of the Waterloo, and Mr. Hercule Olivier, of Berthier, takes command of the Chambly, in place of Captain C. Armstrong.
   
April 8th - MG Mr. Buchanan, His Majesty's Superintend ant of Settlers at Quebec, arrived in this city on Monday, and proceeded on Wednesday to visit the settlements in the neighbouring townships.
   
April 12th - MG The steamboat Waterloo, Captain A.P. Perry, arrived at this port from her winter quarters at Boucherville, on Friday afternoon. The barge Perseverance also arrived at the same time. Other boats are daily expected. The Boat, which plies between the Lachine [] Chateauguay, has commenced her trips. The ice about Isle a Motte, on Lake Champlain, prevents the Boats on that water opening a ready intercourse with the States.
In addition to the Steamboat Waterloo, mentioned above, as having arrived, we have now to notice the arrival of the Lady of the Lake on Saturday evening, and of the St. Lawrence, John Molson, Chambly and New Swiftsure yesterday morning. In consequence of its being understood that the ice is still firm in lake St. Peter as well as near Quebec they will not commence for a few days their regular trips between this and that city.
The beautiful new ship, built during the winter, by James E. Campbell, Esquire, at the Current, is Mary, for Thomas Amner, will be launched on Thursday afternoon at two o'clock. Her masts are in, and she is partly rigged. It is the intention of the proprietor to have her ready for sailing by the 25th instant. Her cargo is ready, and consists chiefly of Ashes. She will sail for London.
   
April 19th - MG One of the shortest passages ever made to the port of New York was lately performed by the French packet ship Du Rham (492 tons), which arrived at New York in sixteen days after leaving the English Channel. The Du Rham left Havre on the 12th March, and having been forced by severe weather to put into Torbay on the 16th, remained there until the 21st, when she left that port. The vessel however, was in the Channel until the 25th, and arrived at Sandy Hook on the 9th instant, thus being only fifteen days from land to land.
The Richelieu, Captain Morin, arrived here Thursday morning, and the Hercules, Captain C.L. Armstrong, the same afternoon, from their winter quarters at William Henry [Sorel]. The Waterloo steamer left this port on Friday afternoon at three, and the Lady of the Lake an hour after, for Quebec. At the time of their departure, it was not known whether the ice still remained at Caprouge or not, but on Saturday morning we received information, through the Quebec papers, of its having broken up on Wednesday evening, and of their being no obstruction whatever.
The Steamboat Franklin is now making her regular trips on Lake Champlain, having arrived at St. Johns on Wednesday and Friday.
The large boat, building by John Hamilton Esquire, of Queenston, for the Navigation of Lake Ontario, will, it is said, be ready by August next.
On Thursday the launch of the fine new ship at Mr. Campbell's ship yard took place. She glided off the stocks in the most beautiful style, and on reaching her destined element received the cheers of a very large concourse of people, who had assembled to witness the spectacle. She was named the Arabian, — her burden per measurement is 230 tons. She was towed up to port the same evening by the Hercules, and is now taking in her cargo for London, for which she will sail in a week or ten days.
   
April 26th - MG Among the passengers by the Caledonia, the 1st April packet ship from Liverpool, were Messrs. William Stevens, 38 and John T. Badgley, 25, of this city, and Lional S. Levey, 38, of Quebec.

Shipping Intelligence:
A find brig called the Breeze, of 321 tons, fully rigged, was launched from Mr. Bell's yard on Friday evening. She was towed round to the wharves by the St. Lawrence steamer, and loads for Liverpool.
On Monday morning the brig Grenada, a very fine vessel of about 250 tons, was launched from Mr. Taylor's yard. She is intended for the West India Trade, and is owned by Mr. Leaycraft.
The Unicorn, arrived on Monday morning, sailed from Liverpool 29th March in company with the William, McDougall, and made the Banks on the 13th instant. She saw four sail on the 18th about ten miles to the eastward of the Birds' Islands, one of them supposed to be the William, from Liverpool. The Unicorn is slightly rubbed having encountered light field ice in the Gulf for about sixty miles, reports the Sir. J. Beresford would sail for this port 3rd April, Artemis on the 8th April.
Floating beacon, Brilliant, sailed on Monday for the Traverse.

A gentleman who came passenger in the London packet ship Columbia to New York, reports the sailing of the Ottawa, Douglas, and the British Sovereign, Thompson, for Quebec, on the 30th March.
The Susan, Nicholson, sailed on the 25th, from Plymouth.
The following vessels were loading for Canada, and would sail early :— At London: Sophia, Kingston ; Deal: Asia, Mendoza ; Bristol: General Wolfe, Othello, Ontario ; Leith: Neptune, George ; Greenock: Sophia, Earl of Dalhousie ; Dublin: Duncan Gibb ; Belfast: Earl of Aberdeen, Jessie, Fingal ; Newry: William Tell, Newry ; Londonderry: Symmetry ; Cork: Saladin.


SHORT ARRIVALS ___ from the New York Daily advertiser
We have recorded below a succession of short arrivals at this port, which we believe to be be unparalleled in navigation, at least from Europe to America. For the last three weeks the wind, we believe without intermission, has prevailed from N.E. variable to E.S.E. but principally at N.E. The shortness of these trips will appear astonishing, when we consider that over thirty days is the yearly average of passage from Europe to New York.
Vessels names Where from Sailed Arrived
Du Rham the English Channel March 25th April 11th
Charlemagne Havre March 22nd April 13th

Of the above vessels, whose passages have been extraordinarily short, that of the ship Josephine, Captain Britton, stands the most conspicuous, she having performed her passage from Belfast to New York, within fifteen days and twelve hours.
The vessels from Liverpool, generally, have arrived here after a passage of only thirteen days from land to land. ....
.... From the 14th to 17th April, there have arrived in New York from Europe, two thousand one hundred and seventeen passengers.

Birth

At Mount Langton, Bermuda, on the 8th of April, the Lady of His Excellency Sir Peregrine Maitland, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, of a son.


Captain Perry of the brig William & Ann, 20th March from Newcastle for Pictou, has come up to Quebec in the schooner James F. Rapelye (24th April from New York). The William & Ann struck on heavy ice to the eastward of St. John's, Newfoundland on the 9th April. and sunk almost immediately. Captain & crew saved themselves on the ice, and were fortunately taken off by a fishing schooner bound to New York. All belonging to them, except the clothes they stood in. sunk with the brig.

Passengers:
Among the passengers by the Ontario, the last London packet ship from New York, we observe the names of Mrs. Galt, Miss Stevenson, and Masters Thomas, John and Alexander Galt, of Canada. Mrs. Galt and family, who have resided for some time past at Chambly, proceed to England to join Mr. Galt, who, we believe, is now residing in London ; Mr. Moses Goldschmidt, of London.
Billa Flint, Esquire, of Brockville, went passenger in the 1st May packet to Liverpool from New York.
Among the passengers by the packet ship York, sailed on the 8th instant from New York, for Liverpool, are mentioned the names of Mr. Edmonson of Montreal, and Mr. George A. Whitley of Canada.

The new steamboat British America, building at Mr. Shea's ship yard for the Tow Boat Company, should no unexpected delays occur, will be launched on Saturday afternoon, at two o'clock.

A very serious accident was nigh occurring to several individuals in this place, from the upsetting of a plank which passed from the Hercules to a schooner alongside the wharf. The boat had but lately arrived from Quebec, and a crowd of idle boys and other individuals, who have no earthly occupation to fulfil on board, pressed forward and satisfied, no doubt, their curiosity by putting the few ordinary questions, that are usually demanded of Captains of vessels on arrival in port, and by examining the machinery. On returning from the vessel, the plank having in some manner shifted, and being precipitated into the water, Captain Brush of the British America, Messrs. George C. Davies and J. Rhodes, and another individual whose name we have not learned, were suddenly immersed. The small boat happened at the time most fortunately to be lowered, into which several gentlemen jumped, and succeeded in rescuing the four who were in danger of their lives. Mr. Davies had sunk, but was rescued by Captain Armstrong of the Hercules, lifting him out with an oar, after he disappeared. None of the individuals were injured except Mr. Davies, who received a few contusions, and all were content to escape with a good ducking. Some means ought to be taken to prevent similar accidents, by preventing the crowds from boarding the Steamboats on arrival.

The Edmund Henry, Steam Ferryboat will leave this for Laprairie on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at seven o'clock, to allow of passengers joining the Steamboat Franklin, which leaves St. Johns on those days for Whitemall.

The Steamboat now building at Prescott for John Hamilton, Esquire, of Queenston, and intended to run between Niagara and Prescott, is expected to be ready for launching in the month of August next. The last Colonial Advocate furnishes some information regarding this Boat, which will be interesting to many. " The Steamer is to be built of a tonnage between 550 and 600 tons ; her engines are to be of 80 horse power each ; her length is to be 150 feet and her width 50 feet ; it is expected that she will draw ten feet of water when loaded, and about nine feet when light. The expense is estimated at 15,000. She is to be built by Brown and Bell, and it is intended to launch her sometime in August next. Brown and Bell, of New York, are celebrated as shipwrights, having built the President, and other twenty-six Steamboats, and also some of the Liverpool packets. We are told that her model is exceedingly handsome, and that when afloat she will make four trips a week between York, Niagara, and Prescott, that is, two trips each way. Her engine is in a state of great forwardness — Bennett & Henderson of Montreal are the makers. Mr. Hamilton intends that she shall make the passage between York and Kingston in fourteen hours, which is ten less than the usual length of the voyage by steam between these ports. "

The following intelligence was received yesterday morning from our Quebec Correspondent:—
Messrs. Masson and Shedden came up this afternoon (Friday) from the Sophia, having left the vessel yesterday at 9am off Kamouraska. The Sophia sailed from Greenock on the 4th April, with a general cargo, experienced tremendous weather, having had constant gales from the N. West, so violent and with so boisterous a sea, that the passengers were unable for days together to go on deck. Captain Neil says, that in twenty years he has never experienced so rough a passage.

from New Orleans.—
The ship Thomas Dickinson, from Liverpool for New Orleans, was chased for three hours on the 2nd April, off Old Cape Francois, by a piratical looking schooner, her deck apparently full of men (chiefly black) which hoisted English colors ; on nearing the ship she fired several times, one of her shot striking the vessel between wind and water, without causing her to leak. Finding no chance of escape, hove to, when the schooner came up alongside and sent a boat on board, which proved to be His Majesty's schooner Monkey, Lieut. Shortland commander, on a cruise in search of pirates and slavers.

This fine Boat, built by Mr. Brown, of the firm of Brown & Bell, of New York, is 169 feet in length from stem to stern, and in breadth 30 feet, but including the wings, 60 feet. The Gentlemen's Cabin, which is to be fitted up in a very superior manner, will be 80 feet in length, and the after end will be divided up as a drawing room. The Ladies' Cabin, which is placed on deck, will be 40 feet in length. In these Cabins there will be 66 sleeping berths, 18 of which will be fitted up as State Rooms. In addition to the above the new Boat has a capacious freight hold and a very roomy steerage. She is 655 tons burden, and is to have two engines of 75 horse power each, made by Messrs. John D. Ward & Co. of this city. Her boilers are to be placed on deck, on which the greater part of the engines and machinery will also be. The promenade deck is to be 120 feet long by 24 feet broad. The British America is expected to be ready to commence running to Quebec by about the 15th July. She will be a very commodious passage vessel, making great speed with very superior power as a Tow Boat.

MELANCHOLY AND FATAL SHIPWRECK

It is with the greatest regret, says the Liverpool Times, that we have to communicate the particulars of one of the most fatal shipwrecks that has occurred on the coast of this country for several years. On Friday night last (April 16th 1830) the Newry, Captain Crosbie, from the port of Newry, bound for Quebec, with about 400 passengers on board, ran on the rocks at Portinclineon, near Bardsey, in Carnarvon Bay and was dashed to pieces in a few hours .. two hundred of the passengers perished in the wreck ! . . . . The ship left Newry on Wednesday, and in beating down the channel, the weather being very foggy, she got too far into Carnarvon Bay and was driven onto the rocks about nine o'clock on Friday night. A considerable part of the passengers, who were principally Irish emigrants, were below when the ship struck ; and such was the violence of the shock that the ladders between decks were knocked away and the ship filling with water, every soul below perished. The Captain, with the crew and about half the passengers, succeeded in reaching the shore, though in what manner we have not learned. They were all in the most wretched condition, many of them having lost everything that they possessed in the world. The greatest part of them are at Carnarvon, where they have been treated with great kindness by the inhabitants. A passenger arrived from Portinclineon at Carnarvon, a short time before the last accounts were sent away, who stated that the ship had gone to pieces, and that the shore was covered with dead bodies. Among those who have perished, are said to be several respectable families.
The Liverpool Courier adds:—
We have taken some trouble to obtain further information respecting the above disastrous occurrence, but we have not been able to collect more than the following particulars:— The accident was occasioned in consequence of the light on Bardsey being rendered invisible by the thickness of the weather ; but the Captain having observed breakers to be near, he ordered the ship to be put about. It was too late, however, for this manoeuvre to direct her perilous course among the shoals, for in coming round she gounded upon the rock, and the result was the dreadful catastrophe detailed above. In this distressing situation the Captain ordered the mizenmast to be cut away, so as to fall upon the rock, in order to form a gangway for those to get on shore who were able to leave the vessel. In this manner the crew and one hundred passengers only, out of three hundred and sixty who were who are said to have been on board, contrived to save their lives. A number of the passengers arrived at Carnarvon on Sunday, some of them almost destitute of clothing, where they received all the assitance which the humanity of the inhabitants could bestow ; and the Mayor and Magistrates, in a spirit most honourable to their feelings, instantly set on foot a subscription for their relief, for which purpose 31 was immediately raised. On Monday morning eighteen of the sailors and passengers sailed in the Abbey steamboat, belonging to Mr. Daney, for Liverpool, where they arrived about eight o'clock in the evening ; the rest received a hearty meal and 4 shillings each, were forwarded in Carts to Bangor.

the Newry Telegraph had reported:
The spirit of emigration to British America has not been stronger, or more extensively prevalent, in this part of the country, for several years back, than at the present. Messrs. Lyle's large and commodious ship, the Newry, is just on the eve of leaving this port, with a full complement of passengers, for Quebec, and three other vessels are already advertised for the same destination, to sail in the course of this and the ensuing month. A number of the persons going out in the Newry are very respectable, and we have observed an appearance of comfort, and, to use a word abundantly expressive, and which our country friends at least will understand, of roughness about the passengers generally not always to be met with. A novel and interesting sight was witnessed here on Saturday. Some emigrants, from the neighbourhood, we believe, of Banbridge, passed through this town, accompanied by a respectable body of Free-masons, with music, vestments, and all other paraphernalia of this ancient order. Having accompanied their friends to the water's side, at Warren Point, and mutually exchanged the sad parting adieus, this band of brothers' was then escorted out of town by the brethren of Warren Pont, by whom, it appears, they had been previously received and hospitably entertained in their Lodge rooms.

The North Wales Chronicle of April 22
.... It appears there were about 400 emigrants on board .... by the most fatiguing and dangerous exertion on the part of the crew, nearly 300 of them were enabled to land, many of them in a state of nudity, and others with blankets &c. round them, having been in their berths, and most of them sea-sick at the time the vessel struck. The crew of the Newry behaved with the utmost courage and humanity. In a state of exposure and exhaustion, and many of them severely injured, they continued their exertions for the preservations of the passengers until four o'clock in the morning, when David Griffiths, a seaman in the neighbourhood, assisted by Owen Jones and other persons, succeeded in rescuing between forty and fifty men, women and children, from their perilous situation on the wreck. .... The vessel broke up on Sunday, and what remained of the wreck was sold by auction on Monday. Fourteen dead bodies were found amongst the broken timber and on the rocks, all of which were decently interred. ....

The Liverpool Journal of April 24
.... We have seen Captain Crosbie, at Mr. Gould's in the Old Church-yard, and he has only just arrived from the scene of the catastrophe, we are enabled to correct, on his authority, the various statements that have appeared in the papers. Although the loss of life was considerable, we are glad to find that it was much less than has been generally reported. .... In this trying moment, we regret that the crew acted in a manner derogatory to the character of British Sailors. With a selfish and cowardly inhumanity, they quitted the wreck and refused to lend the Captain any further assistance. The first and second mate (the latter is Captain Crosbie's son) and the carpenter, however, stood by him in this emergency ; and the two last, having got onto a rock, they made preparations for getting the passengers ashore. At this time the deck was crowded, the majority of the affrighted emigrants in a state of nudity ; they would listen to no advice, obey no orders, but clamorously crowded round the Captain, desiring him to save them. Several got in a boat, but it swamped ; and it was attempted to get others ashore by means of a rope, held by the carpenter and second mate. The surf, however, was so violent, and the poor creatures so impatient and so awkward, that there was little hope of saving all their lives by these means. The Captain therefore cut down the mizenmast, but unfortunately it fell short of a projecting rock, on which he intended it should fall. The tide at this time was rising, and consequently urged the necessity of speedily adopting a more efficacious remedy. A ladder was obtained, but in the confusion, it fell overboard. — Luckily the Captain bethought him of a spar, which, resting on the mast, reached the rock. The poor emigrants were directed to hold fast by this with their hands, and hitch themselves by degrees from the ship to the shore. The sight was truly appalling. Young women with nothing on but their chemises, and fathers and mothers with children on their backs, were among those who endeavoured to gain the shore. Many lost their holds, and were saved with difficulty ; others perished in the surf. This scene continued till morning, when the arrival of some of the country people relieved the Captain and his assistants, who were by this time in a state of utter exhaustion. With great efforts all the passengers, with the exception of one family, who refused to leave their berth, were got ashore before the vessel went to pieces. The night and the morning were rendered doubly severe by a constant fall of sleet and snow ; and we regret to state, that among those who perished, were four who died from cold. The number who perished altogether did not exceed at the utmost twenty-five ; Captain Crosbie thinks it less than twenty, as not more than fourteen bodies had been found previous to his leaving the place. Every thing was totally lost. Neither clothes nor storage was saved, and the Captain himself estimates his loss at three hundred pounds, including several sums given him by some of the passengers, for safe keeping. The greatest praise is due to the hospitality of the Welsh, and the good conduct of the shipwrecked Irish. A man named Griffith is particularly mentioned among those deserving of praise.

Emigration.
We alluded, in our last, to the numerous Emigrants for Canada and the United States, who, at the present period, are taking their passage from this port. During the whole of last week the neighbourhood of our docks presented quite a bustling appearance, from the number of country people arriving with their families and luggage, and proceeding on board the different vessels about to sail for Quebec, New York &c. From what we can learn, as many as 500 passengers have actually sailed since our last, one vessel alone taking 200 passengers, another 150, &c. Notwithstanding these deportations, the number of individuals of the class alluded to, who were to be seen yesterday wandering about the town, in every direction, appeared undiminished. — Hull Packet

Welland Canal.
This important link in the chain of inland navigation will, it is stated by authority of the Directors to be in boatable order by the 15th May. It offers facilties for transportation deeply prejudicial to the interests of this State. The preparations for diverting trade through that channel, have been accelerated by the impolitic increase of tolls on our channels. The merchandize from the seaboard for the Western States, diverted from the Erie Canal at Syracuse, will find a cheaper passage through the Oswego Canal &c. The policy which thus deprives so large a section of the Erie Canal of its legitimate business, must be productive of consequences diametrically opposite to those anticipated by the Canal Board. The experience of the ensuing season, should that policy be persisted in, will, unquestionably, verify this prediction.— Rochester Daily Advertiser
