Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1832

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 Quebec Gazette CG.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1832.

The brig Daniel O'Connell arrived in Quebec from Ireland without a passenger list (the master claimed to have forgotten it). This initiated a file of correspondence between Quebec, London and Ireland ; this is the first letter.
Custom House, Quebec
14th June, 1832
To The Honorable Commissioners of Customs,
London
Hon. Sirs,
Your letter of 5th January 1831 having directed us to report any irregularities connected with the clearances etc of Vessels leaving the United Kingdom with Emigrants.
We have to state for your information that the Brig "Daniel O'Connell"arrived here yesterday from Sligo with 112 Emigrants on board and that the only return of which, produced by the Master, was the document
transmitted herewith, which not being in conformity with that prescribed by Sec 4 - 9 Geo IV, Cap 21 - We consider to submit to your consideration and direction.

The Vessel appearing to have cleared previous to 16th. April, no duty is exigible on the Passengers under the Provincial Act and the number mustered on board by the Tide Surveyor did not appear to exceed that allowed by Law - We take this opportunity of stating that such numerous changes of passengers take place between the time of Ships clearing and her sailing, from entered passengers getting on shore and not making their appearance at the time of sailing, and others being substituted in their room, and also from the names given in to the Master or Agent for the Vessel being ficticious ones ; that we find no reliance can be placed on the certified list of names and in consequence, that numbers alone must be our guide in applying the Law, and we have further to add, that from our ignorance of the names of the Clearing Officer in the Ports of the United Kingdom and the great diversity of Forms and Certificates issued by them, we have no means of distinguishing between genuine and fabricated ones.

 
note: The file contains two passenger lists, one issued at Ballyshannon and one at Donegal. In fact, the brig sailed from Ballyshannon, the port for Donegal and not Sligo. A Tide Surveyor was the customs officer who boarded ships ; in England he was usually called a Tide Waiter.

Shipping Intelligence:

The remainder of passengers and crew are on their way to Quebec in a schooner belonging to Mr. Francois Pelletier. The Wallington was sold to Mr. Le Bouthillier for £60.

Extract of the letter from Restigouche, dated 11th May :— "On the 5th inst. the ship Sir Walter Scott, Brown, arrived off Tracadieche Bar, but being there boarded by shore boat, and being informed that the river ice had not moved, be returned under the lea of Maria Cape, to avoid it, where I am informed five or six vessels have six joined her. The ice is still fixed above Douglas Island, but is floating about with the tide below it."


Emigrant Ships
An order has been received at this Custom-house from the Board, in consequence of a memorial from the general ship-owners' Society, directing the officers of customs not to interfere with ships carrying less than 50 passengers to North America, and in all cases, the necessity of carrying a surgeon throughout the voyage is rescinded, and a strict examination into the health of the passengers is directed to be made be a medical superintendent previous to sailing. This indicates a decided disposition on the part of Government to afford every possible facility and encouragement to emigration. — Plymouth Journal

  The bark Europe, which arrived on Tuesday from Sligo, had on board 371 emigrants, several of whom were labouring under the small pox. She came up without a pilot, and did not anchor at Grosse Isle, having shipped a pilot only off Orleans, who brought the vessel to the mouth of the St. Charles. The yellow flag [quarantine flag] was hoisted yesterday, and after being visited by the Health Officer, she was admitted to pratique in the afternoon, and her passengers were landed. [Pratique is the license given to a ship to enter port on assurance from the captain to convince the authorities that she is free from contagious disease.]
 
 

Shipping Intelligence:
The new ship launched this Spring by Mr. Black, and named The Lord Aylmer, has been sold to Capt. McFee of Liverpool. Her name has been changed to Aliquis.

Thirty vessels are reported at Grosse Isle.

The Experiment, Bruce, from Hull for Quebec, ashore near Calais, France, has been totally lost ; she had 45 settlers on board — all hands saved.


Four hundred and five vessels have arrived at Quebec, to date, from the beginning of the Navigation Season.

STANDING RULES OF THE QUEBEC EMIGRANT SOCIETY
1st. No person can be relieved from the funds, except emigrants from the current year.
2nd. No family can be relieved, (except under extraordinary circumstances,) in which there is a man grown, who is able to work.
3rd. No family can be relieved, where the head of the family has gone of clandestinely, and left them unprovided.
4th. No widow can be relieved, who was a widow when she left Ireland, England or Scotland, unless she came out to join friends who can provide for her in this country, and is detained here by sickness or other unavoidable cause.
5th. Widows applying for relief must exhibit satisfactory evidence that their husbands have died either on the passage out, or since their arrival in this country.
8th. [!] Individuals or families applying upon the alleged grounds of sickness of the man who ought to support them, must exhibit a line from the Hospital, or a medical certificate, or produce other credible testimony ; and the same rule applies to unhealthy or disabled subjects applying in person, who the effects of the malady or injury are not evident to the eye.

To the Editors of Newspapers in Upper and Lower Canada
and in the adjoining parts of the United States
Practices of the same or similar nature with that described in the following advertisement, being but of too frequent occurrence among the number of emigrants, of various character and conduct, who arrive at Quebec, the Editors of papers are requested to give publicity, as a matter of charity, to these two examples, that they may at least operate as a warning to others :—
 
Whereas JOHN WORTHINGTON, from the County of Tyrone, in Ireland, labourer, widower, supposed to be aged under thirty years, clandestinely departed from Quebec, on 28th May last, leaving a motherless child to the charity of strangers. ;
 
And whereas LAUGHLIN FARRELL, a pensioner from the 35th Foot, who had commuted his pension, did in the same way, quit Quebec in the Lady of the Lake steamboat about the last day of May or 1st June, leaving two motherless and unprovided children, of the ages, respectively, of 12 and 13 years ;
 
This is in request all persons to whom said John Worthington or the said Laughlin Farrell may address themselves for employment or otherwise, that they would endeavour to represent to either or both of them the enormity of such conduct, and, in the case of employing them, would make an arrangement with them for stoppage of their earnings to cover the expense of supporting their children and that of forwarding them to their fathers.
Reference may be made to the Office of this Paper.

Passengers:
Arrived at New York, in the Canada, 1st June Liverpool Packet, Mr. Clark of Canada.
Arrived at New York, in the Columbia, 1st June London Packet, Captain Philpotts, Royal Engineers.

Shipping Intelligence:
At quarantine last evening at six — bark Brunswick, 7th May from London — brig Portaferry, 8th May from Greenock, and brig Carricks from Dublin.
The Redwing, in lat. 43, 32, long. 39, fell in with the brig Henry, of and from Swansea for Quebec, in ballast, to H. Lemesurier & Co., in a sinking state. Took from her the whole of her passengers, amounting to 180, with some provisions and water. The Henry sunk shortly after.

A number of patients labouring under the small pox have been landed at Quebec since the opening of the navigation, and were allowed to spread themselves in different parts of the country. We have heard it stated, that a Committee of the Board of Health has been appointed to report on the conduct of the Health Officer in that respect.

The steamer Royal William arrived last night from Montreal ; she will leave early next week.


The steamer Voyageur sailed last night for Montreal with a great number of emigrants on board, and a barge in tow. After having proceeded about nine miles, the passengers appear to have got alarmed at the rolling of the boat, which at times, from the vessel being deep in the water, permitted a part of the waves to get into the vessel. The alarm increasing, the passengers by throwing themselves sometimes to one side and then to the other, made the danger real. Capt. Morin put back to Quebec, and arrived safely about midnight. The Voyageur sailed this morning, after disembarking about 200 of her passengers. Some persons say that one man fell overboard last night during the rolling of the vessel, but this seems quite uncertain.

The Cholera
Dr. Motrin, the Commissioner of Health, and Mr. Young, the Secretary of the Board returned last night from the quarantine station. The rumour of there being persons at the station sick from the cholera, is entirely without foundation. Three persons are at the hospital sick of ordinary continued fever. [By a continual fever is meant that which never leaves the patient during the whole course of the disease, or which shows no remarkable increase or abatement in the symptoms.] Thirty-nine deaths had occurred during the passage of the Carricks from Dublin in the lapse of 15 days, the last having died on the 9th May. All the passengers have been landed : their baggage and the vessel will be purified, and the latter released, it is thought, in about ten days.
The rumour of deaths by cholera at the Emigrant Hospital in Quebec, now in circulation, is also without foundation.
The following is a copy of the official notice issued by the Board this morning.—
"Various reports having circulated that a vessel had arrived at Grosse Isle in which there were several persons ill of the Asiatic cholera, public notice is hereby given, that the Health Commissioner, having proceeded to Grosse Isle by order of the Board, had reported that the brig Carricks, James Hudson, Master, from Dublin, arrived at the Quarantine station on the 3rd instant ; that there were on board, at the time of her arrival, one hundred and thirty-three passengers, all of whom have been landed, and are in the Emigrant shed ; that the vessel is undergoing the usual processes of disinfection ; and that at the time of his departure on the evening of the 7th instant, there was not a case of Asiatic cholera on the island.
By the order of the Board,
T.A. Young, Secretary."

Lower Canada

Montreal, (Saturday,) June 9th.— The steamboats that have arrived in port during the last two or three days have brought up upwards of 4,500 settlers. The John Bull on Thursday brought up 32 cabin and 1,150 steerage passengers, exclusive of 375 who remained on board the two vessels she had in tow, (The Lord Melville and the Betsy.) The British America on the same day brought up 9 cabin and 630 steerage passengers. The Chambly arrived the same afternoon with 28 in the cabin and 530 in the steerage, and the Lady of the Lake with 240 steerage passengers.

Yesterday the John Molson and Hercules arrived, the former with 18 in the cabin and 882 in the steerage, and the latter with 25 cabin and 740 steerage passengers.— Among the latter are some from the wreck of the Wallington, from Leith. The small ferry boat, Lady Aylmer arrived in the course of the day with 230 on board.

The passengers on board the Lord Melville from Portsmouth, now in port, (333 in number) are principally from the Estates of the Earl of Egremont, and sent out at the expense of that generous nobleman. [see Petworth Emigrants]

Montreal.
The Lady Aylmer steamboat arrived in this port a few days ago, crowded with emigrants, after a passage of more than three days from Quebec. The great majority have represented to us that they were brought up against their will, after having entered into arrangements with the Captain to be landed from their ships on the Quebec wharves for sixpence a head. They had to pay full fare to Montreal as if they had come up in the best boat on the river, though they had undergone very severe privations, not having laid in any provisions. We hope the Quebec Emigrant Society will examine into this affair, and take measures to let the necessary punishment fall upon any who deceive the stranger on our shores.

Our attention has been called to the circumstance which occurred a few evenings past of the return to port of the Voyageur steamer, after having proceeded some way on her voyage to Montreal, occasioned by the danger with which she was threatened, from being overloaded with passengers. Vessels crossing the Atlantic are restricted in the number of persons they convey, by regulations framed with due consideration to the safety and convenience of the passengers. But the Steam Boats here receive as many as can find standing room and, if blessed with fair weather and smooth water, may arrive at Montreal without loss of life. But the danger, to which the lives of the passengers are exposed, is manifested. Apprehension in such a mass of human beings, soon creates a state of confusion that augments the danger apprehended, or would create it, if it did not already exist. A strongly enforced regulation on this head is much called for, or, the season can hardly be expected to pass without some serious accident f

A man who was removed on shore from the steamboat Hercules, which arrived yesterday afternoon from Montreal, attacked with cholera, died last evening ; and one was sent to the island in the river St. Maurice to be buried, who had died in the passage from Montreal.
We understand there were six cases occurred on board the John Bull, between Three Rivers and Sorel, two of which proved fatal before her arrival at that place.

Several of our steamers have discontinued for the present their trips to and from Montreal. Those which it is intended shall continue running are each to have a surgeon on board. The cabin fare upwards has been raised to forty shillings.

The troops of the garrison, since the first appearance of the Cholera, have been confined to their barracks.

The Coldstream, the second Tea ship, arrived on Friday evening, having sailed from Canton on the 18th January.

The ship Recovery, which arrived at this port on Friday [June 15], from London brought 250 passengers, under the direction of Mr. Marshall, Agent of the New Brunswick Land Company, who also arrived in her. We understand that these Emigrants are from Berkshire, England, and that they intend forthwith to proceed to the County of York [N. B.], for the purpose of commencing the settlement of 20,000 acres of fertile Land in that valuable agricultural County, which has been recently purchased from the British Government by the Land Company. We are also happy to learn that two additional vessels were to follow the Recovery, each with about the same number of passengers, and for the same destination, and that they are all of a description of persons who will prove a valuable acquisition to the Province. They bring with them a considerable sum in specie. — St. John Courier, June 19

On the arrival of the ship GEORGE and THOMAS in this port on Saturday, the following letter was presented to the Commander.
Ship GEORGE AND THOMAS,
Quebec, June 23rd, 1832
To Capt. W. R. DOWLING,
DEAR SIR, We the passengers in the ship George and Thomas under your command from Dublin, to this port, cannot separate without offering you our congratulations on the happy termination of the voyage.
At this period when a pestilential disease has made such havoc among the numerous emigrant vessels which have arrived in Quebec, we consider ourselves peculiarly favored by Providence in having reached our destination with two hundred and forty passengers of all ages, without the loss of a single life, and we feel that it has been chiefly owing to the prudent measures you adopted from the commencement, in preserving the cleanliness and ventilation of the Ship, in the ample supply of water and fuel you afforded, and to the great kindness and attention you at at all times paid to the wants and comforts of your passengers, for which we (on behalf of the rest,) have much pleasure in making our acknowledgements, and wishing you every prosperity and happiness,
We are, Dear Sir, Your obedt. Servts.

The Niagara, on Sunday, landed seventy-five emigrants here - having left sixty-five in the Newcastle District. They were more than half English, and the rest Irish. Among the former were several more of the labouring people, who were sent out from Lentham in Kent, in the Mentor [May 15] - the rest of these laborers came up in previous boats ; and many of them have already obtained employment.

They were nearly all English, from London and the southern counties. Many of these were highly respectable families who came out in the Caroline [May 17] with Mr. Cattermole, and proceeded to Guelph and Goderich. There were also a number of farming people from Laxfield in Suffolk.
The Queenston took on board a good many other Emigrants for the Head of the Lake, to the number altogether of 250 - nearly all on their way to the Canada Company's Lands.
The Schooners Misissaqua Chief, with 50 English Emigrants, and the Commerce with 65 English Emigrants, also arrived yesterday.

Three Rivers, 22 June, 1832
Resolved. — That no Steamers or Ships, either bound up or down shall be permitted to come alongside nay of the Wharfs in this port, but come to anchor about 100 yards distance from said wharfs, and there such steamers take in their fuel and land their goods by batteaux.
Resolved. — That no person or persons whatever will be allowed to land from such Steamers or Ships, except passengers at Three Rivers.
Resolved. — That no Ship or Vessel shall come alongside any of the wharfs to load or unload until examined by a Medical Commissioner ; and on receipt of a certificate being produced from him that no sickness prevails on board, such Ship or Vessel will be allowed to come alongside and load or unload her cargo as required ; and if any person be sick on board such Ship or Vessel, the same is to remain at anchor in stream.
Resolved. — That two Wardens shall be appointed to see the foregoing regulations relative to the Port carried into effect, also to see to the cleanliness of Wharfs.
Resolved. — That the foregoing regulations be communicated to the Proprietors and Lessees of the Wharfs, to the end that they may act conformably thereto.
By Order of the Board of Health,
Ant. Z. Le Blanc, Secretary.

On the 25th instant, the dead body of a man was discovered floating in the River St. Lawrence, near the Falls of Montmorency. It is supposed to be that of William McWhirk, a native of the parish of Glammie, Scotland. Further information may be had from B.A. Panet, Esq., Coroner, or Thomas G. Cathro, watchmaker, Quebec, Lower Canada.

The brig Royalist arrived on the morning of the 26th at Grosse Isle with a clean bill of health from Belfast, with 187 passengers on board, whereof 34 died during the passage, that is to say, 14 adults with symptoms of the cholera morbus, and 20 children with small pox and severe cold ; the last cholera patient died on the 7th instant. The passengers were to be landed until further instructions from the Board.

The brig Dalusia, Captain Parnall, having 167 passengers, sailed on the 6th May from Dublin, where she performed three day's quarantine before sailing, as a test in order to procure a bill of health for the vessel and passengers — has on board the measles, hooping cough [whooping cough] and some cold — five children died of measles. — Mercury

At this time, when sickness and distress are so heavy amongst the emigrants, the Two Steamboat Companies have determined to raise the price of steerage passage from 7s. 6 d. to 10s. There is, we believe, but one opinion upon this matter ; everywhere the act is condemned as unfeeling, if not unfair — the more so, when it is considered that the proprietors of the Steamers have actually been realising very handsome returns by conveying emigrants up to this date. The St. Patrick, the largest boat in the river but one, is expected to run early next week, and she is built expressly for steerage passengers — having very large accommodations under cover. We sincerely hope that the liberal proprietor will not be swayed by the conduct of the other Companies, but will convey emigrants at the old rates. The advance, we believe, originated with Montreal proprietors. — Mercury

The Royal William steamer, hence the morning of the 16th, arrived at Miramichi on the afternoon of the 19th ult., and was immediately put under quarantine, in consequence of the information it brought, that the cholera had broken out in Quebec.

The Telegraphs
The Telegraphs now in operation as far as Grosse Isle, are now under the superintendence of Mr. Watt, by whom they were originally planned and established, and by whom they were managed during the late war with the United States, when reaching as far as Brandy Pots, one hundred and twenty miles below the port. Since they are in operation to Grosse Isle, that meritorious individual, who is a calculator of time and the tides — an unassuming but exact and skilled observer of heavenly phenomena, such as eclipses, spots of the sun, &c., and particularly as keeping a very extensive register of the weather under all its varied influences, immediately turned his attention to the useful purpose of conveying intelligence on the arrival of the ships at the Quarantine station. The following copy of his report of the Robert Kerr to the public offices and the Exchange this morning, will show with what accuracy and detail his telegraphic operations are carried on:—
"Robert Kerr, Belfast, 1st June, salt, Parke and Bruce, 307 settlers."— "Earl Grey is Prime Minister." "The Anti-Reformers withdrew their opposition." "No creation of Peers."

The passengers in the Robert Kerr have arrived in excellent health ; there was not one case of sickness, birth, or death on board during the passage.

GOOD NEWS TO THE AFFLICTED IN QUEBEC
Health secured, by "Morison's Vegetable Medicines," only.
MR. SIFTON, Hygeist, from the British College of Health, London, begs to acquaint the inhabitants of Upper and Lower Canada, that he intends to take up his abode at Montreal for the sale of "Morison's Vegetable Universal Medicines, and appoint sub-agenta in each town within his district as soon as possible.
By the happy discovery made by Mr. Morison in Physical Science, all the afflicted are now enabled (at a light expense) to remove their own complaints, whatsoever those complaints may be. His Medicine, entirely composed of vegetable matter, is free from all destructive mercurial preparations so frequently resorted to by the faculty, and which so generally lead the patient to a premature dissolution. Not only is this medicine mild in its operation, but sure, safe, and speedy, in its effects, as the letters of thanks from the numerous parties relieved by its virtues sufficiently testify. These, which are published in Morisoniana, convince all, by whom they are perused, that nothing can be more certain and effectual than the remedy they eulogize and recommend, especially those from persons who had unfortunately been attacked by that fearful and dangerous malady the Cholera Morbus. The following letter (amongst numerous others) has been received in Quebec.
To Mr. Sifton :
"We beg to acquaint you that on Wednesday night about 7 o'clock, a young man on board of the Dew Drop. was seized with that dreadful malady, the Cholera Morbus. The Captain immediately gave the patient 22 of Morison's Vegetable Pills, and ordered him to be well rubbed over the body, and placed in bed ; this being attended to in the course of two hours he felt much relieved, and fell into a comfortable sleep for about 2 hours. At four o'clock, in the following morning 10 more pills were administered with some warm gruel, altho the patient, at the time felt no pain but only a little weakened. At 9 o'clock 10 more pills were given, the young man who in the course of that day felt himself restored to perfect health was able to resume his duties. And we the undersigned are ready and think it our duty to you and the public to make this communication, that many lives may be saved if they adopt the same course of treatment. The pilot, Peter Forbes, and a young Doctor were on board at the time and eye witness of the attack of that dreadful malady and its subsequent cure by the pills.
We are Sir, &c.,
Thomas Wokes,
Commander of the Dew Drop.
George Geffery, Cabin Passenger.
Brig Dew Drop,
28th June 1832"
The medicines may be obtained at Mr. Thomas Legges, Sault-au-Matelot-steet, Quebec, for a few days, until an agent is appointed ; and persons afflicted with the Cholera, or other diseases, who wish to see Mr. Sifton, he will be happy to wait on them and give advice, gratis. The medicines are sold in boxes, at 1s. 4d., 3s. 3d., 5s. 3d., and family packages containing three 5s. 3d. boxes at 13s., and powders at 1s. 4d. currency. The fourth edition of Morisoniana, or Family Advisor is sold at 12s., and the much approved Practical Proofs, at 1s. 9d.

THE CHOLERA AND EMIGRANTS.
To the Editor of the Quebec Gazette
Sir— I beg leave to appeal o the public, through your Paper, in favour of the Emigrants. Probably thirty thousand of them have arrived at Quebec since the opening of the navigation. Of these perhaps twenty thousand had proceeded to the respective destinations in Upper Canada and the United States before the breaking out of the Cholera at Quebec and Montreal on the 9th and 11th instant. [June] Since that time, those who were proceeding have been stopped or hindered on their way. A great number of them have been driven back from the United States. At the southern extremity of Lake Champlain, the people actually turned out with arms, and threatened to fire on the steamboats unless they returned. In other places, the Emigrants were surrounded by the Militia, and forced to remain. — all conveyances stopped, and a land quarantine attempted ; provisions being carried to a distance from the quarters occupied by the Emigrants, and there left to be taken up by those that come for them, while dismay, sickness, and death were in the midst of them ! Those that have returned to Lower Canada, or that remain at Quebec or Montreal, do not know how to proceed. They have but little means of their own, and the people no longer readily receive them into their houses or employ, or have any intercourse with them.

The following is taken from the Miramichi Gleaner of Tuesday week last.—

The Royal William remained in quarantine.— This delay will probably put an entire stop to her running.

Miramichi, June 26th,— On Tuesday last, the steamer Royal William arrived from Quebec. The boat was not allowed to hold any other intercourse with the shore than to land a few letters, and was ordered immediately to the quarantine station [Middle Island], where she was boarded by Doctor Key, one of the health officers, who was informed by the captain, that a short time after their departure from Quebec, the carpenter, with another of the crew, was seized with a disease corresponding in symptoms with cholera : since that time, four more of the crew, including the engineer, have been attacked with the same disorder. Her steerage passengers, amounting to fifty, were landed on Sheldrake Island on Saturday last, together with the sick, who are now occupying the buildings recently erected on the island as Lazar-houses. The captain, with the cabin passengers, remains on board the vessel, with such of the crew as continue healthy. From the precautionary measures adopted by the Board of Health, we feel confident the infection will be contained to the island.
Tuesday Evening.— We have just learned that the engineer of the steamboat is dead. No new cases are reported.
