The new steamboat building at this port, will be launched positively, if all be well, on Tuesday the fourth day of June. This is assuredly the most singularly constructed boat ever built. The plan is original ; it differs materially from the Burdenian model. Let the reader imagine to himself, two enormous canoes, each 177 feet in length, by nine feet in breadth, and placed parallel to each other, at the distance of twelve and a half feet apart, with oval iron hoops, covered all over with pine plank, something like a barrel, fastened to each other with large oak beams over which the cabins are built ; and he will have some idea of this extraordinary boat. — Prescott Gazette

Emigration
The number of Emigrants arrived this season, as recorded at the Office of His Majesty's Chief Agent, to this date, amounts to
From England 2,884
  Ireland 6,595
  Scotland 1,348
  Lower Ports 19
Total   10,846
Same period last year 3,175
We are glad to learn that a very large portion of the Emigrants this year have brought with them considerable property in specie and bills of exchange, whilst it is a further favourable feature of their general condition, that the number dependent on immediate employment bears a small proportion of the total of arrivals. Very few indeed appear to require the charitable assistance of a benevolent public, which is particularly gratifying when the large influx of strangers is considered that within the last ten or fifteen days have arrived in Quebec, and that many of them had suffered shipwreck on St. Paul's Island and other parts of the Gulph. — Quebec Mercury, June 3

We the undersigned belonging to the schooner Tryal, wrecked on the Banks of Newfoundland, beg to offer our most sincere thanks to the charitable citizens of the city of Quebec, for the support which we have received from them ; and particularly procuring for us clothes and other articles, which we wanted the most, in our unfortunate situation, and also in providing for us a passage to the above mentioned place, and home to our familes:—
William Mole, master ; Thomas Fling ; Robert Fowler senior ; Robert Fowler junior ; James Sonagham and Edward Sonagham. — Quebec, 30th May

The passengers of the brig Good Czar, from Berwick, have presented Captain Lowreyson with a silver snuff box, in token of their gratitude for his gentlemanly conduct during the voyage.


Extract of a letter dated Sydney, May 14th
"Annexed is a memorandum of vessels which have been reported to me within the last week, and I have fear from the weather we have had lately, similar occurrences have taken place."
Barque Astrea, William Ridley, master, with 211 passengers and crew, went ashore at Little Loren Head near Louisbourg on the morning of the 7th May, only three saved (surgeon and two of the crew,) — same day, brig Edward struck a piece of ice near Port Nova and sunk immediately, Capt. and crew saved. — On the 10th May the brig Fidelity, Robert Clarke, master, from Dublin, bound to Quebec, with 150 passengers and crew, went ashore on Scattari Island [Cape Breton], all saved, vessel total wreck. — Same day, brig Columbus, Russel, from Newcastle bound to Quebec, was lost three miles eastward of Louisburg, crew saved.
The crew of the ship Charlotte Langin, from Liverpool bound to Philadelphia, had been landed at Halifax from an American fishing vessel — their vessel sprung a leak, and they were obliged to abandon her — they were three days in their boats.

The brig Good Czar, Captain Lowreyson, arrived at Quebec last Friday from Berwick, brought up thirty of the passengers wrecked in the Isabella, Simpson ; and in consequence of one of them falling sick, was obliged to ride quarantine nine days at Grosse Isle, by which Captain Lowreyson incurred extra expense as well as detention, in the performance of a generous act of charity, which the unfortunate shipwrecked people had not the means of repaying.
Another instance in which a ship "incurred extra detention" at the Quarantine station, under somewhat similar circumstances, has reached us. The Retreat, Captain Kinnear, from Alloa, took from the wreck of the Scarboro' Castle, from Hull, captain Mosey and his crew, and brought them to Quebec. On arrival at Grosse Isle, these seamen, by authorities there, were added to the twelve steerage passengers of the Retreat, and that vessel, according to the rule which directs all ships with above fifteen in the steerage, to land their passengers on the island, had to comply with the rule, and thus remain a day longer for performing an act of humanity.

Emigration

Sometimes the voyage across the ocean was uneventful and all of the turmoil started after landing. This item from June 10, 1834 from the Montreal Gazette (but copied from the York Courier) shows the movement of traffic up the Lakes - these are Lake steamers not Atlantic Ocean ships.

"The number of emigrants arrived this season, as recorded at the office of His Majesty's Chief Agent, Quebec, to the 7th instant, amounts to 11,848. In the same period last year 5,662.

At this port [York, later Toronto], emigrants continue to arrive in considerable numbers. The steamer "United States" came up on Tuesday night with near 400 British emigrants, the greater part of whom were taken from on board the "William IV", which unfortunately broke her shaft near the False Ducks, and was obliged to return to Kingston. The "United States" had also a number of British emigrants who came out by way of New York, for this Province and she had also a great many American settlers proceeding from the Eastern States to Michigan, &c. The "Kingston" steamer came up again yesterday with 180 emigrants, part of whom were landed in the Newcastle District. More than half of those landed here from the "United States" and "Kingston" steamers have since proceeded to the head of the Lake. The "United Kingdom" came in this morning. She brought up about eighty emigrants, nearly half of whom were landed at Cobourg or Port Hope. The "Great Britain" came up at noon today. She left Prescott with 470 emigrants (two third Irish) about 150 of whom were left at Cobourg and at Port Hope, and the rest disembarked here. She had 40 cabin passengers and a heavy cargo of freight. The whole number who have arrived this season at the different ports in this section of the Province, from Quebec and from New York, can be little less than two thousand five hundred. In looking over the late Irish papers, we perceive that the emigration from that country, is expected to be greater this season than in any former year."— York Courier, May 29.

The paper also mentions that the Quebec agent was trying to get captains of the Atlantic ships to comply with the late "Capitation Tax," and repay those emigrants who had paid at embarkation (this was a tax on each emigrant to pay for the immigration facilities such as Grosse Isle, which tax was repealed early in 1834). He also mentions a few wrecks:

"Mr. B. begs to return his thanks to the several Masters of vessels who brought up from Gaspe, St. Paul's, and other parts of the Gulf, a number of ship-wrecked Emigrants; and for the liberal treatment they received. To the Agents of the several Steamboats, Mr. Buchanan's thanks are also justly due, for their readiness in granting gratuitous passages to Montreal, to several shipwrecked Emigrants and other persons whom the Chief Agent considered proper objects for such charity."

One of the wrecks was the brig "Isabella" and the schooner Dolphin picked up 36 of the survivors and took them to Miramichi May 27 the rest were taken to Quebec. The "Proselyte", of Limerick, with 223 passengers was also wrecked but all "have been safely landed to Richibucto in a lamentable state of misery..." The other vessel with 290 passengers is not named. The "Astrea" was also wrecked but some 249 lives were lost.

Mr. Buchanan would impress upon every Emigrant the imperative necessity of hastening into the country, where profitable employment may be had, instead of lingering about the cities of Montreal and Quebec. Directions (gratis) will be furnished to such as require them at his office ; but the protection of the public authorities will not be extended to any Emigrant after this date, in want of employment, who shall loiter in Quebec beyond a week after arrival, unless detained by sickness or other satisfactory reasons.

The schooner Dolphin, Coulson, arrived here on Sunday last from St. Paul's Island, with Captain Morris and thirty-six of the passengers of the brig Isabella wrecked on that island ; the remainder having gone up to Quebec. The Captain handed us last evening, the following particulars :—
On Thursday the 8th instant, the brig Isabella, bound to Quebec, got ashore on the S.E. side of the Island of St. Paul at three o'clock in the morning, in a thick fog ; they were so nigh the rocks that in cutting away the foremast, it fell against them, which enabled the passengers, 163 in number, to get on shore, almost all, however, in a state of nakedness and all nearly perishing with cold. Three or four large fires were lighted, and when a little recovered from fright and cold, they proceeded to look for the station house, and about ten o'clock they fortunately arrived there, in a most pitiful and exhausted state, when the person in charge got them a little warmed tea, and distributed what clothing he had among the most destitute, which was the means of preserving many lives. Had not such an institution been on the Island, the most part of the passengers would have perished with cold and hunger in a few days. — Miramichi Gleaner, May 27

The bark Astrea, 300 tons burthen, William Ridley, commander and owner, bound for Quebec, with 211 passengers, besides about forty or fifty children, whose names were not on the passengers' list, and a crew of fourteen persons, sailed from Limerick on the 9th April. Nothing of any moment occurred until two o'clock on the morning of Thursday, the 8th May. It was extremely dark, and the vessel going before the wind under a press of sail, when an alarm was given that there was either land or ice ahead. Orders were immediately given to put the ship about, but before this could be effected, she struck upon a rock, which stove in her bows. In less than two minutes she again struck, with still greater violence, which threw her over on her side, with her deck seaward. During the interval, several of the passengers had got on deck ; of these hapless beings, some were seen on their knees engaged in prayer, holding on by whatever came within their grasp ; others were swept off the moment they came on deck. The Captain ordered the jolly-boat to be lowered, when a rush was made towards it, but only a few got into it, when it was dashed to pieces. About ten persons got upon the side of the vessel, the rest who were upon the deck having been swept off, when she fell over. Finding that the vessel was breaking up, the surgeon, carpenter and one seaman, leaped from the wreck among the breakers, and although much bruised, succeeded in getting upon the rock, which fortunately for them, communicated with the shore, which they soon after reached. When daylight broke upon them, not a vestige of the ship was to be seen, and of her ill-fated passengers and crew, they found that they were the sole survivors. They were of the opinion that she must have gone to pieces the moment they were leaving her. The three survivors hastened to a house which they discovered about a mile from the spot, when they ascertained that they were about eight miles from Louisburgh, on the coast of Cape Breton. Mr. O'Sullivan, the surgeon of the vessels, to whom we are indebted for the foregoing particulars, after quitting the fatal spot proceeded along with his two companions in misfortune, to Louisburgh, whence he took passage for Charlottetown in the Britannia, which vessel happened to put in there on her way out from London, and arrived here on Thursday last. — Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island) Gazette, May 20

The following particulars regarding the wreck of the brig Fidelity, of Newcastle, England, R. Clark, master, are derived from a passenger : —
The Fidelity sailed from Dublin on the 10th April last, with 183 passengers, bound for Quebec. On the morning of the 13th a violent gale of wind sprang up and continued until till the following evening — several of the passengers became unable to make use of food from the sea-sickness they experienced, and sunk gradually beneath the effect of it, notwithstanding the greatest attention from the Captain. The folly of attempting such a voyage without a surgeon soon became visible ; and it is to be hoped that twenty-nine deaths arising solely from want of medical aid, will caution emigrants from leaving their native shores without a doctor, in the future. On the 7th instant, the vessel entered Tincove, Scatteri Island, in a thick fog and cast anchor. — On Friday the wind being favourable, an effort was made to put to sea, — the ship struck in the attempt, but through the exertions of the Captain, and our excellent mate, Mr. Dawson, all the passengers were saved — one seaman was unfortunately lost in lowering the jolly-boat. — the passengers and crew remained on shore during the night, exposed to all sorts of privations. On the following day they set out in quest of the inhabitants. Nothing could exceed the miseries of their journey for two days, either forcing their way through an almost impenetrable wood, or wading through morasses up to their knees, and at night lying in the open air, without any covering. Fortunately the wreck was discovered by that active and excellent individual, J.R. Dodd, Esq. of Mainadieu, who at once sent four men in quest of the sufferers. They came up with them on on the evening of the second day and conducted them back to the wreck, where a schooner lay to receive them. Three persons dropped on their return, and a woman having shewn signs of life, as her fellow sufferers passed, it was intimated to Mr. Dodd, who at once sent his men in quest of her ; — they conveyed her in a state of insensibility to Tincove. She has since recovered, and feels she owes an eternal debt of gratitude to her kind and amiable preserver. — Sydney Cape Bretonian, May 27

The master of the Fidelity and passengers, arrived here Wednesday last in a vessel from Miramichi. About sixty of them have taken passage for Halifax ; the Magistrates here having taken upon themselves the emergency of the case to provide provisions for their passage, they being unable to provide it themselves ; and we doubt not that the well known humanity and sense of justice that distinguish the character of His Honor the President will cause him to approve of this act ; about twenty more have engaged a passage for Boston — the remainder are still here. However unhappy a circumstance it may be to the passengers in the Fidelity to have met with shipwreck on their voyage to Quebec — and although many of them may have lost their all, which causes us to commiserate with them in their affliction ; still how different has been their fate from that of the wretched sufferers on the Astrea :— the former have escaped from the jaws of death, and have preserved their lives ; they have been cast, indeed, in one sense, amongst strangers, but not amongst those who cannot sympathise with them in their distress, Sydney has often been before, as now, a place of refuge for the shipwrecked emigrant and mariner ; its inhabitants have as often, to the extent of their ability, contributed to their aid and comfort, and received their thanks and blessings therefor.— Ib.

We have seldom found a more flagrant instance of dishonourable cupidity than has been brought under our notice in the following facts. Last Sunday fortnight the American steamboat William Avery, took on board a number of English emigrants at Kingston, and the Captain engaged to take them to Toronto. Instead of doing this, he took and landed them at Rochester, and, after staying there two or three days, they had to take a boat and come to Port Hope, and pass from there to Toronto. But this circuitous route and consequent delays and expense, were not all the evil. By being landed at Rochester, the emigrants had to pay the States heavy duties on all their goods, paying on a gun, more than it cost in England. On the following Sunday, the same steamer was again here and engaged other emigrants on a similar promise of taking them to Toronto, but a respectable tradesman happened to go on board, and hearing the statement, told the emigrants that they were deceived, as that boat never went to Toronto. On finding this, one of the party said that he would go ashore, and made preparations for it, but when the Captain saw and heard this, he rang the bell and pushed off the boat immediately. This conduct is the more detestable because, if the emigrants had been allowed to wait two or three hours longer, the William IV would have come up, and would have taken them to Toronto in gallant style. We hope that some of the townsmen will attend the William Avery when she comes and prevent her Captain from entrapping our countrymen his foils. And we would request the Lower Province papers to notice this and place the emigrants on the guard before they arrive here. — Kingston Herald

To the Editor of the Quebec Gazette
Sir, — You would do a public good by inserting the enclosed letter from the Captain of the Mary, as I am sure the hardships he complains of, will not again happen.
The injustice towards the British ship-owner, in making the vessel chargeable with providing her passengers during the time she undergoes quarantine, is so glaring, that I am sure it only wants to be known generally to the mercantile community to be redressed.
The same fund which provides for the establishment at Grosse Isle, ought assuredly to bear the expense of feeding the emigrant during his detention ; for an unfeeling Captain (who, by the way, only gets about 30s. for the passage) might allow his passengers to starve, rather than find [sic] them, which is no part of his contract.
A detention of a few days make little matter, as the Emigrants generally are supplied before sailing for a six weeks' passage ; but when three or four weeks are spent at Grosse Isle, the expense should be borne by the public. —H.
Grosse Island, May 27th, 1834
I arrived here on the 18th, with three hundred passengers, forty of whom were sent to hospital on the 18th and 19th, more or less affected with measles and typhus fever. We lost seven on the passage, viz : one man, by a fall and six children, from the want of proper attention being paid them, their parents being sea-sick. I landed the remainder of them on the 20th, got the vessel cleaned and fumigated on the 21st, and the passengers were sent on board on the 24th. The poor creatures have been on board ever since, with only eleven beds between two hundred and fifty. The straw beds which they had were thrown overboard, and they are now obliged to lie on the boards, without a covering, the greater part having nothing on the passage but their wearing apparel, which they are obliged to keep on to prevent the boards from cutting their hips. There are mothers and their children in this state. It is inconsistent with reason to expect them to remain healthy while they are in this state. There is no constitution able to bear such treatment in these piercing nights. There are fifty of my passengers in hospital at present, and the remainder must be soon there if something is not done for them. — The people ought to be kept on shore until the vessel in liberated ; for while there is such a number together, there will always be somebody complaining. Dr. Poole has reported seventy-eight in hospital. There have been six deaths and a few bad cases, but the greater part of them were very slightly affected ; in fact there was nothing the matter with some of them. I think it advisable to allow the vessel to proceed immediately with the passengers she has on board, as there have been but two fresh cases of measles since they have been re-embarked — or allowed to re-land them and then proceed, provided passage be found them to Quebec. It is a sad thing to detain the vessel here such a length of time. Dr. Poole expected I would be allowed to proceed last Sunday, but there is no likelihood of it. I stated our situation to the commandant, who said he could do no more than give me a little straw for them, when he gets it. He has also told me that I will have to victual the passengers, which is a great imposition.

Memorandum — for general information
The number of sick at Grosse Isle, by the latest return is 141.

Emigrants

Assuming the circumstances stated in the Herald of Wednesday, as facts of which no doubt can be ascertained, knowing as we do, the respectable source from which the information emanates, we cannot too severely reprobate the conduct of the Captain of the William Avery. It affords us, however, much pleasure to learn that His Excellency the Lieut. Governor has, with his accustomed regard for the encouragement of emigrants, appointed our fellow townsman, Mr. Manahan, emigrant Agent for Kingston under whose direction and advice a recurrence of the wicked shameful deception need not be apprehended. This gentleman's appointment has given general satisfaction. — Kingston Chronicle

We are requested to state, that the Kingston Emigrant Agency is kept in Mr. Manahan's former office, in Front Street, of the old Chronicle office. The necessity of am office, where strangers and others could get sure information of the fixed hours of arrival and departure of the steamboats touching at this port, has been often suggested — and can now be established. We therefore recommend the several master or agents of these boats taking advantage of this opportunity to establish so desirable an office. No doubt many mechanics and labourers will apply to Mr. Manahan, to procure, through him, employment ; and it will be well for such persons, in this District, as need such, to address themselves to him — to which we are assured he will give prompt attention. — Ib.

The Constitution steamer has come in twice from Rochester since our last notice, bringing altogether seventy emigrants from the latter port, who came out by way of New York. The Cobourg brought 350 to this port and Cobourg and Port Hope ; 110 of whom were British emigrants from Oswego. The St. George brought ninety on Sunday, and the William IV, 140 on Monday — making about 4,300 emigrants who have arrived in this section of the Province this year. — Toronto Courier

Since we last treated this subject, many emigrants both by way of New York and Quebec, landed at this port, but the number we cannot state with any degree of accuracy, as nine regular steamboat arrivals take place weekly, and schooners from Prescott and Toronto daily bring more or less passengers. The Quebec, Montreal, Kingston and Toronto papers, all agree in stating that the emigrants are of most respectable appearance, and possess all the indications of wealth, and as far as we have observed, their remarks are correct. Last year only 22,000 emigrants landed at Quebec, but there is every reason to believe, from the number that has already arrived, and the statements in the papers of the United Kingdom, that it will exceed 60,000 this season, and also that the arrivals by way of New York, will be unusually numerous. A considerable number arrive by that route at this port, but we presume many more land at Port Hope, Cobourg, Toronto and that greater numbers proceed Westward by way of Buffalo and the Welland Canal. Agents have been stationed by the British Government at the following ports viz : Greenock, Belfast, Cork, Limerick, Dublin, Liverpool and Bristol, to wait upon emigrants, protect them from imposition, and give them necessary instruction &c. &c. If two were stationed at Quebec, one at Prescott, two at New York, one at Albany, one at Oswego, one at Rochester and one at Buffalo, for the same purpose it would be extremely beneficial to the emigrants, to Upper Canada, and to the British Government, as this Province will ere long become one of the most valuable gems in the British crown. We are happy to perceive by the Montreal papers that few emigrants apply for employment in that city, and that there is neither distress nor disease among them. It appears they set out for this Province without delay. We are sorry to see there are so few labourers among them. This town is well supplied with mechanics and labourers, but west of this, there is a general want of them, particularly ar London, Goderich, &c. &c. — Hamilton Mercury

We have again to notice the tide of emigration that flows upon us, both by way of Quebec and New York, but to attempt giving the number would be useless, as there is no possibility of ascertaining it, even with moderate accuracy. We are sorry to perceive that there are very few labourers among them, as such are quite as much wanted as capitalists. More labourers are wanted this year than any former one, on account of the improvement of the St. Lawrence, and unless the number increases that valuable work will be retarded. — Hamilton Mercury

On Monday last an inquest was held on the body of John Given, who was found drowned on the morning of the same day. The deceased (from Peebles, Scotland,) with his wife and five children, arrived here on Saturday by way of the Rideau Canal, on their way to the Township of Seymour, where a son and two of his daughters have been settled for the last four years. He retired to rest on Sunday evening, on the deck of the steamer Sir James Kempt, with his family, and was found missing on Monday morning. His body was found floating on the water. His son deposed the jury that he was in the habit of walking in his sleep. Verdict, accidently drowned. — Kingston Chronicle

Yesterday the Canada was to take passengers up at 1s.3d. in oppostion to the Patriot. The large number of passengers that the Patriot had got at 2s.6d. that boat having taken up about 600 on the trip before last, appears to have determined the companies to take this step. The most profitable part of the season is, however, past. The Cabin fares are still held at the old rates of 30s. up, and 25s. down. — Neilson's Quebec Gazette

Steamboats
The steamboat oppostion has, it appears, for the present ceased ; the Patriot has met with an accident, that for some time will prevent her running, and the deck fare now demanded, by common consent, by all the boats is 5s. to the great disappointment of many emigrants, who yesterday refused passage at 2s.6d. expecting that the Patriot would be down and take them at 1s.3d. — Quebec Mercury

On Thursday last, the brig Nelson sailed from Maryport, for Quebec, with 158 full passengers, all from Scotland-and in the fullness of health and spirits. The emigrants were people of respectability, generally of the rural class, some of them possessing property to considerable amount, and each seemingly animated by the determination to secure, by perseverance and industry, an independent competency in the Western world. The passengers from Dumfries-shire and Galloway, mustered under the auspices of Mr R. Neilson, Dumfries, immediately before sailing, presented that individual with a handsome and valuable musical box. Silver mounted, and bearing an inscription highly flattering and appreciative of Mr. N.'s zealous attentions to their comforts and welfare.-Dumfries Courier, June 11.

Saturday the brig Czar sailed from Greenock for New York, with 110 passengers, and the brig Cartha for Quebec, with 200. The total amount of emigration from Greenock this season to New York is 1,393 ; to the British Colonies, 687. A number of other vessels are on the berth, and emigrants for embarkation are pouring in. (Montreal Gazette, July 29, 1834.)
