Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1831

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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1831.

EMIGRATION

The Great Britain S.B. (steamboat) arrived on Saturday last with 220 Emigrants, principally from Yorkshire and the adjoining Counties, nearly the whole of whom remained in this town [Toronto, formerly York].
The Queenston S.B. came up on Tuesday from Prescott with 450 Emigrants — forty of whom, all English, she landed at Cobourg and twenty at Port Hope. Of the other 390 ; about one third of whom were Irish, ten Scotch, and all the rest English ; more than 300 disembarked here, and the rest proceeded in the Queenston to the head of the Lake.
The Alciope S.B. arrived on Wednesday morning, having brought about 140 Emigrants from Prescott, forty of whom, all English, were landed at Cobourg ; forty at Port Hope, also English — excepting only two families of Irish — and sixty at this place, nearly all of whom were also from England. Besides these deck passengers, the Alciope brought up two or three highly respectable families of British Emigrants, in the Cabin. One of them is Mr. Dixie, with a family of nine cabin passengers and five servants, with carriages, dogs, and various other "gentlemanly appurtenances," and the two others, we understood, were Captains Wilson of the Navy, and Russel of the Army. All of them remain at present in this town.
On Thursday, at 3 o'clock P.M. the Great Britain came into port again from Prescott with 261 Emigrants, over six years of age, and we guessed seventy under that age — say together 360, something like fifty of whom were Irish ; forty Scotch, chiefly from Roxburghshire ; 270 English, most of them from Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. This fine boat makes her trips from Prescott to York and Niagara and back to Prescott in five days, as will be seen by the advertisement in this day's paper.
Number of Emigrants landed at Cobourg and Port Hope this season, 1,170.
Number of Emigrants landed at York, 2,183, about 200 of whom have since proceeded towards the head of the Lake.
Total number come into this part of the Province this season, down to this morning — 3,355.

The number arrived at Quebec down to the evening of the 3rd June was over 25,000, very nearly three fourths of whom are Irish. As more than three fourths of those who have come to this Province are English, it would be interesting to know how the great bulk of the Irish Emigrants have been disposed of. Perhaps some of our Quebec or Montreal contemporaries could inform us.
The select Committee of the Adelaide Association have determined on the township of Seymour, as the place of their intended settlement ; and have fixed the site of their contemplated city on the north bank of the River Trent near the southern boundary of the Township.— York Courier, June 11.

The Steamer Niagara arrived here from Prescott in the night between Saturday and Sunday, having brought from thence about 450 emigrants, in nearly equal proportions of English and Irish. About 250 of them were landed at Cobourg, 120 at this place, and 80 went up to the head of the Lake.
The Queenston Steamboat came up early on Tuesday morning. She left about sixty emigrants at Cobourg and Port Hope, and brought about ninety to York, one family of whom (Scotch) proceeded to the London District ; one family (English) to the Township of Nelson ; one family (Irish) to Puslinch ; and one family (Irish) to Dundas. And the rest, between sixty and seventy, remain in the town. The Queenston also brought up several passengers in the cabin, including four young ladies and a gentleman (brother and sisters) from Scotland, who have come here, we understand, with the view of establishing a female Academy. The Queenston proceeded to the head of the Lake at 6 o'clock A.M.
The Great Britain Steamboat arrived on Tuesday with 507 emigrants, 160 of whom were Irish, and all the rest are English, from Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Leicester, and, principally, from Yorkshire. About 150 of these emigrants proceed, we understand, to the lands of the Canada Company. Among the residue there are many fine families having considerable property, and a number of mechanics, and of the better class of English labourers.
The Alciope Steamboat left Prescott on Wednesday morning with 216 emigrants over 12 years of age, and about 180 under that age — say together. 400 ; thirty-five of whom were left at Kingston, forty-five at Cobourg, forty-five at Port Hope, 255 at York, and twenty proceeded to Queenston. Of the whole number, nearly three-fourths were Irish, and the rest English, mostly from Yorkshire, with a few from Westmoreland and adjoining Counties.
Besides the above, about ninety English emigrants have arrived during the week in schooners from Prescott, Oswego and Rochester.
The total number of emigrants who have arrived at York, during the season, down to this morning, is 3,327, between 400 and 500 of whom have already proceeded to head of the Lake, and many others intend to move in that direction. About 150, chiefly poor English and Irish families, have already been forwarded, by the Hon. P. Robinson, to the Township of Oro, where they are to be settled under the superintendence of Mr. O'Brien.
The number disembarked in the Newcastle District, this season, down to the same date, is 1,570.
Total, arrived in this part of the Province, 4,897. — York Courier, June 18.

In our last we noticed the arrival of a number of old soldiers, passengers in the Hebe, who have commuted their pensions for a certain sum of money and a grant of land in these Colonies. We are sorry to understand that the instructions for the future disposal of these veterans have not yet been received, having been sent by the May mail, and that they are consequently detained here, to their serious inconvenience, and at an expense they can in no way afford. It appears singular that men coming out under such circumstances should not have been provided with duplicate instructions, to obviate say such difficulty as has now occurred, more especially as it is of the greatest consequence that emigrants should land in the country that they have chosen for their future abode, under circumstances tending to inspirit and encourage them ; much of their future welfare depends upon this, and it was with pain we heard expressions of disappointment and sorrow at the step they had taken, from several of these old soldiers. Those who are acquainted with the habits of this class of men know how highly they, and perhaps with justice, value their past services, and how strictly they expect the letter of their engagements to be adhered to. It is to be regretted that any thing should have occurred to damp the ardour of these settlers, at the same time we hope that as this measure seems to be merely experimental, it may not be tried upon a large scale, till its success shall be fully ascertained ; for we cannot but express our doubts how far settlers of this description are calculated to promote their own welfare, or add to the prosperity of the Province. As an inhabitant of Canada we should at any time prefer seeing a ship load of emigrants arrive, every man of who it would delight a recruiting officer to enlist for the service, or even of those who had "..,not arrived to pith and puissance," than of such as have passed their best days in a profession not the best suited for forming a colonial settler. — Quebec Mercury.

Chelsea Pensioners to Upper Canada, 1830-1839 (two pages)

After our paper went to press on Saturday, we learnt that His Excellency Lord Aylmer had, upon the representation of Commissary General Routh, ordered relief to be afforded to those emigrants who, having commuted their pensions, came out in the Hebe, and who could in any way make out their claims upon Government. These men have, we understand, a claim to 100 acres of land, in common with other discharged soldiers becoming actual settlers. — Mercury.


FREE PASSAGES TO EMIGRANTS
TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEBEC MERCURY.
Sir, — In a recent number of the Old Quebec Gazette I read a paragraph which, I conceive, casts reflections on the Steamboat Companies, charging them with a want of sympathy, and a due regard to the convenience and transport of settlers, &c. ; this might tend to leave an unfavourable impression on the public mind. Having personal knowledge that an opposite disposition has been evinced and practised by the two gentlemen, Agents, and how far they have shewn sympathy and a willingness to render every assistance to indigent emigrants, by free passages, to all such as might be properly recommended. I deem it my duty, in justice to Messrs. Ryan and Shaw, to lay before the public the following statement:—
The Emigrants' Society, which has existed for upwards of ten years, has been indefatigable in its labours towards the alleviation of the sufferings of distressed emigrants, (coming within the rules of the Society, *) finding that its limited funds did not permit any thing beyond the distribution of an occasional pittance for the immediate and temporary wants of widows, orphans, and sick, or the families of sick men, made application, through me, to the Agents of the two Steamboat Companies for their assistance, by granting free passages to such as might be recommended by the Society, and in evidence of their benevolent disposition upon the subject, they both gave a most ready and willing assent to meet the views of the Society. I was appointed by the gentlemen with whom I have the honor to be associated in this institution, to carry the arrangements into effect, and I am sure I shall underrate the number by stating that by me alone, two hundred individuals were recommended and obtained free passages last year. It is also within my knowledge that they did not confine their benevolence merely to this arrangement, but granted the same privilege to many others who were recommended by the Clergy of the several churches in this city, and private individuals ; and in one particular emergency, I remember to such an extent as to call for public acknowledgments of His Majesty's Resident Agent for Settlers.
I am, &c.
Robert Symes.

* Extracts from the rules of the Society relative to persons to be relieved :— "None but emigrants of the current year, widows and children of such as die on their passage out, or after landing in this country ; wives and children of such as are by sickness deprived of the means of supporting their families ; and other destitute and sick persons, who are unable to Labor."

Captain Crocker [Rowland R. Crocker]
This venerable Captain arrived in the Packet ship Pacific from Liverpool on Tuesday morning [June 14 1831], which completed his one hundred and sixteenth passage across the Atlantic. Captain Crocker has been a commander since the year 1792, and with one exception never had occasion to call upon the underwriters for loss or damages sustained at sea to vessels under his command. The case embraced in the exception was in the ship Otis, of New York, when lying in the Downs on the 17th February, 1807, when nearly one hundred vessels were either lost or injured, the Otis also sustained considerable damage. For Captain Crocker's exertions on that occasion in saving his ship and cargo from total wreck, the underwriters at Lloyd's presented him five hundred guineas and a piece of plate, valued at fifty guineas. In the long series of years during which Captain Crocker has been at sea, he has traded only to Europe — but he has been in almost every port in that Continent. He has saved the lives of thirty-two persons by receiving them from wrecks. — New York Mercantile Advertiser.

To Emigrants. — As the public Hospitals of this city are found insufficient to afford medical assistance to the increasing number of Emigrants arriving daily from QUEBEC and threatening the city with contagious diseases ; the undersigned Medical Practitioners, in compliance with a request from the EMIGRANT SOCIETY established for the relief of the indigent Emigrants, have associated themselves together to conduct a DISPENSARY, connected with the Building to be erected by the aforesaid Society, on the Plains of St. Anne, where all Pauper Emigrants may receive GRATIS ADVICE and MEDICINE Every Day, from 7 to 8 A.M.

Passengers:
In the ship Nailer, McColl, sailed June 27 for Greenock, Miss Newbigging, Mr. Muscarelli and Mr. Hastie.
in the ship John Francis, Miller, sailed June 27 for Liverpool, Capt. Grant, 71st Regiment, and Mr. Ross.
In the brig Seal, Brown, sailed June 29 for Newfoundland, Mr. Graham, of Liverpool.

Shipping Intelligence:
About 100 vessels are still in port. The greater part will be ready for sea in the following fortnight. The arrivals up to this time exceed the corresponding period of last year by near 100 vessels, but the tonnage is somewhat less in proportion.
The brig Baltic and brig Minerva, both from Yarmouth, landed about half their settlers at Prince Edward Island.

Destitute Emigrants
It affords us much pleasure to find that the number of destitute and homeless emigrants, which last week perambulated our streets engaged in begging, have, through the meritorious exertions of the Emigration Committee, most sensibly diminished. The applications for relief are few on comparison to what were made a day or two ago, and these poor strangers have been forwarded to parts of the country where they can obtain labour and profitable employment. The number of families already forwarded by the Society and furnished with rations of biscuit, pork and oatmeal, amount to 190, comprising 861 individuals. The Committee have sat every day from 2 to 6.

The Royal William
The Royal William Halifax Steamboat, in heaving up on Monday last, from the birth which she had taken previous to the launch of the barge Superior, to the one she has occupied for some time past opposite Messrs. Bennett & Henderson's foundery, touched on a rock which swung her bows round to the full force of the current, her anchor dragged, and the vessel grounded on a bank. She has not been got off, as far as we have learned, but is expected that the John Molson will be able soon to extricate her from her present situation. The Royal William will be ready for the sea in about a fortnight. She is a beautiful vessel of 1300 tons admeasurement, and we learn that competent judges have declared that she is in no respect inferior to the first Steam packets in the old country.

What's in a Name?

On the 6th instant the Princess [sic] John of Saxony (full name: Johann Nepomuk Maria Joseph Anton Xavier Vincenz Aloys Franz de Paula Stanislaus Bernhard Paul Felix Damasus) was delivered of a little Prince, who, on the following day, was baptised by the name of — Frederick-Augustus-Ernest-Ferdinand-William-Louis-Anthony-Nepomucene-Maria-Baptiste-Xavier !— [We may venture to recommend a betrothment between this long-named Prince, and the daughter of the Duke of Cambridge, the Princess Augusta-Caroline-Charlotte-Elizabeth-Mary-Sophia-Louise.] —Age

Wikipedia states the infant's name was "Frederick Augustus Ernst Ferdinand Wilhelm Ludwig Anton Nepomuk Maria Baptist Xavier Vincenz (b. Dresden, 5 April 1831 – d. Schloss Weesenstein, 12 May 1847), known as Ernst."

Emigration

In our last we mentioned the numbers that the Emigrant Society had already forwarded from this city to different parts of the Provinces. Among the list would be found 201 souls for Sorel. These are intended for Drummondville and other settlements in various sections of the Eastern Townships. We are happy to see that emigration has commenced to that part of the Province, the soil of which is equal to that of any other, while its proximity to market gives it an advantage over the distant parts of Upper Canada.
A late number of the Quebec Mercury mentions that labour is in great demand in Georgeville on Lake Memphragog, where a hundred able bodied and industrious men would find ready employment during the remainder of the season, at from ten to sixteen dollars a month and their board. If such is the case, it is to be hoped that the Quebec Emigrants' Society will send a few of those who are daily arriving at that city, in the direction of the Townships, instead of to Montreal, where they may be re-forwarded to Sorel, at a considerable loss to the funds placed at the disposal of the Society for general relief.

In the Mint from London, about 200 out-pensioners of Chelsea, who have made a commutation of their pensions for a sum of money and a grant of land, have arrived at Quebec, and about 100 more by the Kingston from Waterford.

Chelsea Pensioners to Upper Canada, 1830-1839 (two pages)


Several very respectable families from the Isle of Arran arrived at Quebec on Sunday, in the Foundling, from Greenock ; they have come out with the intention of joining their Highland connexions in the Township of Inverness, and have brought with them a Schoolmaster and a Minister who preaches in the Gaelic tongue.

The Royal William steamer, sailed from Quebec on her first voyage to Halifax, on Wednesday Evening last. On the previous afternoon she took a cruise round the harbour to prove her engines ; they worked perfectly, and the fastness of her sailing was much admired. She takes to Halifax about twenty cabin and seventy steerage passengers ; and besides the freight, 120 tons of coals have been put on board. A detachment of the 71st. Regiment also proceeded to Halifax in the Royal William as a guard over the convicts from the different corps on this station, viz : 15th Regiment, 3, 32nd. Regiment, 6, 66th. Regiment, 4, 71st. Regiment, 6, 79th. Regiment, 2, who have been sentenced to transportation to Bermuda, for various terms, by General Courts Martial.

Jonathan Mason, of Boston, P.A. Jay, Esquire, Mrs. and Miss Jay, of New York, and of Major Talcott, U.S. Army, who has charge of the Arsenal at Gibbonsville, near Albany.

A labouring man, recently arrived from Scotland, was drowned at Lachine on Monday last. His name was Robert Turnbull, a native of Yarrow, Selkirkshire. We learn that the unfortunate man went into the Canal to bathe, and sunk a short time after. Turnbull has left a wife, and seven helpless children.

The extensive brewery of THOMAS MOLSON, Esq. at Kingston, was destroyed by fire on Monday night last. The fire was first observed by some of the workmen about eleven, and the alarm being speedily given, the inhabitants of the town and the troops of the garrison were promptly at the scene of destruction to render assistance. Notwithstanding all their exertions the fire did most extensive damage, destroying in its progress the brewery, distillery, malthouse, piggery, a large new store and wharf, together with about 5000 bushels of grain and fifty puncheons high wines. Mr Molson was unfortunately absent at the time of the accident ; we observe in the Kingston paper a card from Mrs. Molson, returning thanks to Col. Nicol and the garrison, as well as to the inhabitants, for their unwearied exertions. We regret to learn that the insurance on the premises was suffered to expire some time ago, and that a renewal of the policy in Montreal, lately proposed, was not completed.
