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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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

The woman Elizabeth Birch, who was stated in the papers lately to have been committed to prison for an attempt upon the lives of her children, has been liberated upon bail. No such charge was ever preferred against her, the depositions of her neighbours tended only to represent her as keeping a disorderly house, which was by them deemed a nuisance. The circumstance of one of her boys having been tied to a post with a rope around his neck, which by some was conjured up into an attempt at strangulation, has been proved to be a punishment which she inflicted upon her urchin on being found guilty of stealing a cock from a neighbouring yard. The boy denied that he felt inconvenience from the manner in which he was confined.

The following is a comparison of the number of vessels, their tonnage, and the number of emigrants arrived at this port to the 14th July, 1829, and the same date of 1830:—

Passengers.
In the Cherub, for Greenock, Mr. Morris, of Montreal.
Among the passengers by the London packet ship Corinthian, arrived at New York, we notice the names of Mrs. Herbert Cornwall, Masters H. and F. Cornwall, and three servants, of St. John, New Brunswick.
In the James, at Halifax, from Boston, were passengers, Mrs. Irvine ; B. Tremain Esq., Mr. Edward, Master and Miss Tremain, of Quebec ; Miss Pyke and Miss Hartshorne, (of Halifax) from Montreal.
The celebrated Miss Frances Wright has returned to England from the United States, in the packet ship Hannibal, for London. Her sister, Mrs. Whitby, went to England in the same vessel.

Shipping Intelligence.—
The brig Daniel O'Connell, at Sligo, May 10th, for Quebec, arrived at New York, July 12th, with settlers.
Miramichi, July 7th.— On Wednesday last, the Jane of Cork, 130 tons register, bound to Quebec, arrived here with 170 passengers, all of whom were suffering either from disease, or want. As soon as these circumstances were made known by the Official Report of the Health Officer, the most prompt and efficient measures were adopted by the Magistracy, for the detention of the vessel, and the prevention of communication between her and the shore.

note about ship Jane, from Belfast
.... While on the subject of Emigration, without any intention of imputing improper or wilful conduct to any one, we may remark on the impropriety of vessels, arriving with Emigrants, not hauling to a wharf, but lying in the middle of a rapid current. The consequence of not doing so, is the annual loss of many lives ; as in the case of the ship Jane, which arrived on Saturday evening with 100 settlers from Belfast. We understand the she lay anchored in the middle of the River until Monday at noon, when a Steamboat went alongside, and took on board the passengers. It is known that in passing from this vessel, a boat with ...[missing text]... had she hauled to a proper situation the unfortunate accident would not have occurred. To many it may appear that such accidents are occasionally unavoidable, but there is more in it than this. On the arrival of a vessel with Emigrants, probably distressed for provisions, the first natural wish is to proceed on shore, and purchase the supply of their little necessities. Very few passengers of a higher station, and better means, would be content, after a long voyage, and in a crowded vessel, to remain nearly 48 hours in sight of land and comfort. In the case of a poor settler, who longs to get on shore to buy a loaf of bread, or a little milk for his child, the privation of this convenience is most oppressive. Every one at all acquainted with the wharves and harbour must admit the difficulty of getting a boat at all to go aboard a vessel ; and in subject the poor stranger and his family, to the expense of half a dollar and sometimes more, for conveyance to the shore, appears to us a real hardship. No blame attaches to the Harbour Master for this, but if his authority is not sufficient to obviate the evil and inconvenience of passenger vessels remaining so long in the stream, it is respectfully to be hoped, that the subject will not escape notice in the proper quarter.

Strangers.
Among the strangers who have been lately in town, during their tour through the Canadas, we notice the names of General Lavalla, formerly Governor of Mexico, and Minister of Finance of that State ; Madame Ituride, the widow, we understand, of the late celebrated Emperor of Mexico ; Colonel Fornel, who holds a diplomatic appointment from the Republic in the United States ; and the Hon. David Finlayson, Speaker of the House of Assembly in the Island of Jamaica.

The Weather.
The weather at Quebec lately have been equally oppressive with that experienced in Montreal. The Mercury of Saturday the 17th says :— The weather has for some days past been unusually hot, even for this season of the year.Yesterday, at half past 3pm, the thermometer upon the most approved principle, and placed in a fair situation in the shade, indicated 104 of Farenheit, the wind had blown during the day from the westward. The Mercury, we believe, has never been observed, in Quebec, to rise above 106 in the shade, and we are informed that in one situation in the Upper town, it was marked at 105 yesterday evening. Neilson's Gazette of the succeeding Monday says :— The weather during the last week has been dry and unusually warm. On Friday and Saturday the thermometer was at 95 in the shade ; some have said at 105. Yesterday there were thunder showers, but the temperature still continues high.

The Army.
The Limerick Chronicle of the 2nd June says :— " Transports to convey the 8th and 32nd from Dublin to North America, have arrived at Kingstown." It is probable from the above that the 32nd Regiment left Ireland before 1st June, and may now be hourly expected.
The Neva Transport, Lieut. Adamson, R.N. Agent, sailed from Quebec on Wednesday for Woolwich. Major Coffin, Captains Faddy and Birch, Lieuts. Greenwood and Matson, and Assistant Surgeon Richardson, of the Royal Artillery, Lieut. Walpole, R.E. and Lieut. Nixon, 55th Regiment, (late of the 66th,) proceeded to England by this vessel. There were likewise on board 130 men of the Royal Artillery, 23 women and 53 children. Mrs. Captain Trotter, R.N. daughter and sevant, were also passengers.
D.A.C.G. Tidmarsh, of the late Commissary of Accounts Department, returned to England in the John Danford, which sailed on Thursday, from Quebec.
Lieut. Young, 24th Regiment, was a passenger in the packet ship Cambria, sailed from New York for London. In the Florida for Liverpool, we observe the name of C. Jarborough, Esquire, of the British Army.
Ensign Fownes, 71st Regiment, proceeded to New York on Friday, on his way to England.
The first division of the 32nd Regiment arrived at Quebec on Saturday.
Portsmouth, June 5th :— The Branches freight ship for Quebec, with detachments of the 71st and 79th Foot, put in here on Wednesday with contrary winds.

Neilson's Gazette of Monday relates the following:
A circumstance has recently occurred, which is so intimately connected with the public health, as to deserve particular notice. The ship Jane, from Belfast, Captain Warnock, having arrived in the harbour on the 10th instant, with emigrants, was immediately boarded by the Harbour Master, who in conformity with the law passed at the last Session for preventing the introduction of contagious diseases, required of the Captain to state whether there was any person sick on board ; to which he replied that there was none. The Harbour Master made his report accordingly to the Health Officer, with the certificate of the Captain annexed. It turned out however that there were six of the children affected with the small-pox, five of whom were put on board some of the Montreal Steamboats which took them up the River that evening. The other was found the next day on one of the wharves, and immediately sent to the Fever Hospital at Pointe Levi. The Health Officer, having learned from the mother of the child the existence of the contagion on board the Jane, immediately visited her, and enquired of the mate (the Captain being absent) whether some children affected with the small pox had not been landed from the ship ; to which he replied that neither he nor the Captain were Medical men, and that they could not tell the small pox from any other disease, that they did not know that any of the children were sick at all.

It is with pleasure says Neilson's Gazette of Thursday, we record one of numerous instances of the noble and intrepid conduct of English sailors. Yesterday while the John Danford was leaving Carman's wharf, being about to sail for England, two women (wives of some of the Royal Artillery) going home in this vessel, fell from the wharf with a child. Captain Hepburn of the John Danford immediately jumped overboard, having seized one of the ends of the ships' braces, and rescued these three persons from immediate death.

About ten days ago as a boat from Hunt's wharf, Quebec, was proceeding with passengers, emigrants, to the Steamboat Richelieu, lying in the stream, from the ignorance of the boatmen, who had given up the steering to a passenger, who could not manage a boat, it came in contact with the wheels of the Richelieu, which the stream tide had caused to be turning, and immediately upset, when seven out of twelve unhappily perished, five men and two women. Great praise is due to the sailors of the Richelieu and the St. Lawrence Steamers, who at the imminent hazard of their own lives succeeded in rescuing five from a watery grave. The bodies of James Smith and woman unknown have since been picked up in the St. Lawrence, opposite the town ; the bodies of another woman and of a person, apparently a sailor, have also been found on the Island of Orleans in the South Channel. These individuals appear to be those, who lost their lives by the upsetting of the boat referred to above.

The following melancholy accident occurred to a part of the crew of the Triton, off the Falls of Montmorenci some days ago. Three men had gone in the long boat with the anchor, and a heavy chain cable to moor the vessel, and sere towed by a skiff having four other hands on board. The Captain, observing that the anchor was badly hitched, called out to the men in the long boat to rectify it unfortunately they all went aft for the purpose, when the boat sank. The men in the skiff then pulled towards them to render assistance, and, with a precipitation too common in such cases, all rushed to one side of the boat to pick up their drowning comrades, when the skiff also upset, and of the seven only one was saved. They were we learn, all young men, the eldest not twenty-five years of age, and belonged to respected families in Sunderland.
The Mate of the Henry V. also lost his life in carrying out an anchor to moor that vessel ; in letting it go he slipped over the stern of the boat and went down with the anchor, as afterwards appeared, for upon weighing it twelve hours afterwards the body was found clinging to it. The bodies of two men have since been found on the Island of Orleans in the North Channel, who appear to be those that lost their lives, while raising the anchor of the Triton.

A trial trip was made Saturday afternoon by the British America, the splendid new steam vessel lately built for the Tow Boat Company. She went as far as Long Point, returning in about an hour and a half, and we understand that her running on this occasion fully realised the anticipations of her enterprising proprietors. Her engines and machinery, all from the foundry of Messrs. John D. Ward & Co. are distinguished for that excellence of workmanship for which the Messrs. Ward have rendered themselves so prominent. The British America has still some carpentry and other work to complete, and will probably make her first trip to Quebec in the course of this week.

The steamboat Chambly, when on her way from Quebec to Montreal on Friday last, struck on a rock in the Richelieu, which induced the Captain to run her ashore to prevent her filling completely. The John Molson brought up carpenters from Quebec, and the boat, having been got off on Saturday, was to be taken to the south shore to be repaired. It is expected that she will be ready to resume her place in the line in about a week.

The Wilkinson for Quebec, with settlers, was supplied with water by the Rosebank on the Banks, three weeks since.

Settlers:
About 22,000 settlers have arrived this season, being 9,000 above the sum total of Emigrants at this port last year ; of these near 1,200 have arrived since last Saturday evening. The number of vessels arrived this season exceeds that of last year at the same period, by 63. The difference in tonnage in favour of 1830, is a little more than 5000 tons. A number of vessels are still due in this port.

On Sunday morning last, William Harrison, one of the crew of the Lady Normanby, was drowned opposite this city [Montreal]. The vessel was coming through the current in the tow of the Hercules, and he was engaged in lowering the stern boat, when, before it was fairly down, the swift running water upset it, and threw Harrison into the river. The current was too strong to admit of any assistance being afforded him ; and the unfortunate man, after twice rising to the surface, was overwhelmed. His body has not yet been found. — Herald. [the body was found and buried yesterday]

Died:
On the 19th June, on board the Southampton, from Quebec to Grenada, whither he was going for the benefit of his health, Mr. Cornelius Peck, a respectable citizen of Montreal.


Strangers:
Among the strangers now in town, we learn the names of the Duke and Marquis of Otranto, two of the sons of the celebrated Minister of Police, Joseph Fouché, Duke of Otranto, and Mr. Shenley, Consul General from the British Government to Hayti.

On receipt of the intelligence of His late Majesty's death, at New York, the British Consul issued the following notice.—

His Britannic Majesty's Consulate
New York, August 6th, 1830

Information of the death of our late beloved and lamented Sovereign George the Fourth, having reached this city this day — and event which calls forth such universal sorrow and unfeigned regret, leads me to request that the Commanders of British vessels in this port will, from this date, cause their colours to be hoisted half-mast each day until the 18th instant.

James Buchanan, Consul

We learn from the Courier and Enquirer that in consequence all British Shipping in the Harbour immediately hoisted their colours half-mast:— the American vessels without delay paid the same mark of respect to the memory of the late King. The Courier remarks " this is a feeling that we are pleased to see exhibited — it is honourable to our Captains, and is decided proof of that good and cordial feeling between the two nations, which we trust will ever be cherished. "

Mr. Buchanan has since issued the following letter of thanks:—

His Britannic Majesty's Consulate
New York, August 7th, 1830

Gentlemen.— The generous and kind sympathy you spontaneously expressed, by hoisting your colours half-mast high, on the arrival of the melancholy findings of the death of His late Majesty George the Fourth, I beg to assure you has called forth, from His Majesty's subjects in this city, respect, admiration and esteem. Such a display of national feeling on your part, is eminently calculated to cherish those sentiments which have happily arisen during the glorious reign of His late Majesty, between the two countries, and which, I confidently hope, will be followed up during the reign of His present Majesty — William the Fourth. I have the honour to remain, gentlemen, the masters and commanders, your obedient humble servant,

James Buchanan

New Brunswick

The Weekly Observer, published at St. John, contains the following paragraph :— Within these six days past, we have had by emigration from Ireland, an accession to our numbers of nearly seven hundred souls. Some of these emigrants are apparently a superior class, but a great proportion are quite poor. — The Mary, which brought 198 in the steerage, has the small-pox on board and all communication with her is prohibited strictly. We learn that there were six deaths on the passage, five of which were from small-pox, and that there are six or seven now sick, in different stages of the disease. We also learn it to be the intention of the proper Authorities, that the healthy passengers shall be forthwith landed on Partridge Island, where they will remain until their clothes and bedding are washed, and them declared healthy. Those who are sick are to remain on board, for the present. This arrangement will render the situation of the healthy, as well as the sick, more comfortable.

From the same paper we copy the following :— " Novelties.— Under this head may be mentioned the arrival in our port of an East Indiaman to get a load of timber, and of a vessel from Holland with Dutch emigrants, men and women, to the number of 108 — an antique and grotesque looking race, but apparently well fed, very orderly, clean, and comfortable in their habits. Their destination is New York, but finding that they could not be landed in any thing but an American bottom [ie. and American vessel], they were brought in here, and yesterday morning went off to Eastport [Maine], in the Lerwick, which brought them, and will there get some other conveyance. "


NOTICE:— If JOHN BURTON, who formerly resided in Pennyan, in the State of New York, and who is supposed now to be in Canada, will make known his present place of residence, at the Gazette Office, Montreal, he will hear something of moment to him. Any information from other parties, who may be acquainted with the residence of the said John Burton, will be thankfully received.

Emigration
From the Official Gazette

Some days ago, a party of poor Emigrants, consisting of 31 families, and one hundred and fifty-three souls, were landed at this port from the vessel Two Brothers, from Dublin. They brought with them documents showing that they had been sent out by public subscription, under the sanction of the Magistrates of the County of Kildare, headed by the Duke of Leinster, whose signature is to the recommendation they brought. They are spoken of as being of moral and industrious habits and character, and as having been employed in a woolen manufactory, at Celbridge, in the County of Kildare, until the depression of that branch of trade in Ireland deprived them of the means of supporting their large families, and induced them to emigrate to these Provinces, their passage money having been paid, as mentioned above, by public subscription. On their arrival here, these poor people, whose case seems a sufficiently hard one, applied immediately to Mr. Buchanan, the Resident Superintendent of Emigrants, expecting, as they declared, that pecuniary aid had been transmitted from Celbridge, to be given to them on arrival in Quebec. We are sorry to say no such provision had been made for them, not has any communication been received from Kildare, except what they themselves brought. Such was the story of these poor Emigrants, who were than cast perfectly destitute upon our shores. Owing to the unprecedented influx of Settlers this season, no hope of employment on the Public works in this and the Upper Province was to be entertained, the number of heads being fully complete ;— and the Superintendent was exceedingly at a loss to point out any method of relief to these industrious strangers. It having been reported, however, that a scarcity of labouring hands, to work at the harvest, and on the new roads, was felt in the Eastern Townships, he rightly considered it most advantageous to direct their steps to that section of the country. By the very great kindness and liberality of Mr. Shaw and Mr. Ryan, Agents to the Steam Boat Companies, who promptly granted a free passage to such places on the River as the Emigrants might select for landing, Mr. Buchanan was finally enabled to direct them to situations, where he had good ground for thinking, if they followed his advice, that thy would find then employment, and a portion of them in the avocations to which they had been accustomed. It is to be hoped that the above occurrence, as well the fact o such a number of Pauper Emigrants having been thus sent out without means, and in a manner every way so careless and improvident, will draw public attention to an evil which may become in time of serious consequence. We have reason to believe the matter will not escape notice in the highest quarter here, being fully convinced that His Majesty's Government will never sanction the unrestricted introduction of an unlimited number of paupers into these Colonies, without being certain that reasonable arrangements have been made, and proper precautions taken to prevent their becoming a burthen instead of a benefit to a rising Province. When, some time ago, we spoke favourably of the plan adopted by the Parishes in England, of sending out their superabundant labouring poor to North America, we did so under the impression that sufficient means were to be secured to them on arrival, to enable them to commence an immediate and active career of industry and utility. Under proper authority, and intelligent management, this might easily be done. But against such steps on the part of the Parishes as those taken by the Magistrates of Kildare, we strongly protest on the ground of justice and common humanity, in spite of the powerful name of " Ireland's only Duke. " Most undoubtedly a very wide field for the industrious labourer is presented in this flourishing Colony ; and it cannot be denied that the effect of the liberal grants of the Provincial Legislature, for the improvement of internal communications, has during the last two years, been most beneficially felt, and has mainly tended to afford means of employment and support to a very considerable number of the labouring and Emigrant population.

We are authorised by Mr. Buchanan, His Majesty's Resident Agent for Settlers to express thus publicly his thanks to Mr. Shaw and Mr. Ryan, for their very gentlemanly and prompt acquiescence in his request of a free passage up the River, in favour of a number of destitute Emigrants lately landed here from on board the bark [sic] Two Brothers, from Dublin. Other instances of liberality on the part of these gentlemen, and also of Mr. Greenfield, owner of the Steamboat Lady of the Lake, in giving a gratuitous passage to distressed Emigrants and particularly to the surviving passengers of the ill fated Newry and the brig Triton, states the acknowledgements of the Resident Agent, which he has desired us in his name to make. We need scarcely say, we do so with the utmost satisfaction ; and shall be always happy to record similar instances of benevolence.

The Lord Gambier, from New York, and the brig Grenada, 19th July from Grenada, anchored off Green Island Saturday morning last. The Captain of the Lord Gambier has come up to town. The Lord Gambier has experienced nothing but calm and head winds since entering the Gulf — her Pilot was taken on board 12 days since. Brig Sussex was to leave New York for Quebec two days after the Lord Gambier.

The brig Canada sailed on the 25th June from Cromarty for Quebec, having on board more than 200 emigrants, and on Saturday the brig John left the same port, on a similar voyage, with a complement of 114. About a fortnight ago, another vessel, the XYZ sailed from the North with emigrants ; and altogether not less than 680 of out countrymen, chiefly from Sunderland, have this season quitted their native country. — Edinburgh Weekly Journal.
The Stirling Castle and Duchess of Richmond were to sail from Greenock for Quebec, about the beginning of July, the former with 323, and the latter with 320 passengers making the enormous total of 643 emigrants, chiefly, we believe, from the Highlands. At this rate the Highlands must speedily be depopulated. — Ib.

Passengers.
Among the passengers by the packet ship George Canning arrived at New York Wednesday morning, from Liverpool whence she sailed on the 25th July, we notice the names of the Hon. Ward Chipman, lady and servant, of New Brunswick. Mrs., Miss and Mr. Torrance junior, of Montreal, and Mr. Smith, of York.

Canal Navigation.
We observe, by the Scots papers, that the Swift, a twin-built canal vessel, for passengers and light goods, performs nine miles an hour, on the canal between Glasgow and Edinburgh, filled with passengers ; and it is found that the more rapidly she moves the less is the agitation of the water.

THE TURF

Filho de Puta arrived here from Quebec yesterday in the John Molson steamer. Rumour says he is no longer the property of Mr. Gibb, he having parted with him for $1,500 to three Quebec gentlemen, who intend entering him at the Races which commence here [Montreal] on Monday next.

The Halifax papers announce the death, by drowning, of Captain Dewer of HMS Rose. This melancholy event, of which we will give the particulars in our next, took place in a creek in the Island of St. Charles, on the Labrador Coast, into which the Captain had waded in pursuit of some ducks, and being in all probability attacked with the cramp, this deeply regretted catastrophe was the result.

It was determined, at a meeting held a few days ago, at Gananoque, that a new Steamboat should be built at that place, to ply between Prescott and the head of the Bay of Quinté. It is to be of 100 horsepower, and in size about 300 tons, 120 feet being her extreme length, 25 feet beam and 10 feet hold. The new Boat is to be called the William the Fourth. Two engines of 50 horsepower each are to be procured in Montreal, and will be ready by 1st July, 1831.

The intelligence of the Revolution in France was brought to Quebec on Wednesday, the day after it reached this city, by the arrival of the William, Captain McDougall, from Liverpool, whence she sailed on the 4th August, the same day that the New York packet ship, the Hibernia sailed from the same port.

We understand from Quebec that there was full attendance at the late meeting at Wolfe's Cove, for taking into consideration the propriety of building a Steam-vessel to tow rafts. The proposed measure, we learn, will certainly be carried into execution early in the ensuing spring. A very liberal offer was made by the St. Lawrence Steamboat Company of the New Swiftsure's engine of seventy horsepower, to be taken at a fair valuation, and for the full amount they propose to take in stock.

The keel of the Steamboat intended to ply between Quebec and Halifax was laid a few days ago at the former place.


Flogging in the Navy
Captain Mingaye, of His Majesty's ship Hyperion, who has been honourably acquitted of the charge brought against him. The man who was said to have been flogged to death, owed his decease to the accidental presence of inflammatory disease. The Jury praised Captain Mingaye's humanity throughout the transaction.
Mr. Rogers, Assistant Surgeon of the Hyperion, died on board yesterday se'nnight. His death was brought on by a scratch he received while assisting in the port mortem examination of the unfortunate William Welch, who, our readers will recollect, died soon after the infliction of forty-eight lashes, and whose death was followed by the trial and acquittal of the Officers.
