Montreal Gazette August 1, 1834

We have frequently heard the character of emigrant ships from Ireland declared to be worse than that of those concerned in the slave trade from Africa ; the account given by the passengers of the Thomas Gelston from Londonderry, substantiates the opinion. The passengers by this vessel state the number including children to have been somewhere from 450 to 517. They were nine weeks on the passage and suffered much from want of water and provisions. - Besides two tiers of berths on the sides, the vessel was filled with a row of berths down the centre, between which and the side berths there was only a passage of about three feet. The passengers were thus obliged to eat in their berths, each of which contained a great many persons say five and upwards. In one were a man, his wife, his sister, and five children; in another were six full grown young women, while that above them contained five men, and the next one eight men. These statements are given on the concurrent testimony of several passengers. Fortunately, a succession of fine weather enabled them to keep the hatches open; in a storm they would have been smothered. Although these people landed safely at Grosse Isle, a great deal of sickness has broke out among them since. A part of them came up by the Canadian Eagle on Wednesday [August 6?], from which about a dozen persons were taken to the cholera hospital soon after their arrival. Daily Advertiser [Montreal]


TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEBEC GAZETTE SIR,-
Being desirous of ascertaining the practical effects of the plan proposed by the Sanitary Committee of the Common Council, in their address to His Excellency the Governor in Chief, of the 9th inst., I beg to suggest the expediency of hiring a schooner, to be anchored at the mouth of the river St. Charles. That on the first day when Fahrenheit's thermometer will range from about 90 to 96 degrees, the members of the Committee accompanied by their Secretary to record occurrences, and attended by the Physician and Surgeon of the Marine Hospital, to watch symptoms &c., do proceed on board the schooner, there to remain in strict quarantine for at least forty eight hours. That their diet, during this period, be sailor's biscuit, salt beef or pork, oatmeal and potatoes, with the river water, and nothing else as a drink. That they be placed in every respect, as nearly as possible, in a situation similar to that of healthy passengers arriving in a clean vessel, or from Grosse Isle. That, at the expiration of the eight-and-forty hours, the schooner be boarded by competent medical practitioners, who will require from each individual, but more especially from the professional gentlemen on board, a particular statement of all circumstances which may have occurred during the period of quarantine. If it appears that all have been healthy, that no case of sickness, nor any premonitory symptoms exist, it may then be time to take into consideration the proposed plan of keeping a clean vessel, with a healthy crew and healthy passengers, forty-eight hours at the mouth of the river St. Charles; excluded from all communication with the shore, and exposed to the rays of a burning sun, without the possibility of shelter, without water, other than that of the river, which is always injurious to strangers; and subject also to all inconveniences attendant on a crowded vessel in a hot climate. But, until the proposers of this plan prove its efficacy, by actual and repeated experiments on themselves, they must not feel surprised that some who look to facts in preference to crude theory, should differ from them in opinion, and look upon their suggestions as tending to originate and propagate disease, instead of preventing its dissemination.

The temporary arrangement by which only four steamboats, belonging to the different lines, were employed between Montreal and Quebec, having expired, the Lady of the Lake left port on Tuesday evening, and the Voyageur last night. We hope that this resumption of their places on the line, which we hail as pleasing proof of our improved health, will be continued till the whole of the steamers are again on the route.
The Varennes Springs steamer, it will be seen by a notice in our paper, has recommenced her two pleasure trips a week.

Deaths:—
At Toronto, on the 24th ultimo, Mr. Robert Heron, printer, aged 24. On his being taken to the hospital, an interesting young woman, to whom he was about to be married, applied for permission to see him, declaring she was his sister. She was admitted and kissed the dying youth, showing great affection for him. Three hours afterwards she was brought to the same hospital, far gone of cholera, and her pillow was the pillow of the cold grave.

At Toronto on the 22nd ultimo, Robert William Prentice, Esq., brother to Henry S. Prentice, Esq., agent to the Earl of Caledon, Ireland. Mr. Prentice took his wife's death, which occurred the previous week, so much to heart, that it probably hastened his own dissolution. They both died of the prevailing epidemic, leaving four infant children, four thousand miles from their nearest relative.

At Toronto, on the 26th ultimo, Mr. Sydney Smith, apothecary, &c. He went about the city administering medicine for the cholera, and before he died he took the remedies for his own case which he had offered to others. He has left a wife and seven children in good circumstances.

Statement of property pertaining to the late William Ronaldson and family, landed from the Lady of the Lake, and inventory taken in the presence of the Reverend Doctor Harkness and of A.C. Buchanan, Esquire, His Majesty's Agent for Emigrants. Found in the pocket of the late William Ronaldson, seven and-a half sovereigns, seven dollars in notes, one half dollar, one quarter dollar, one English shipping, and six pence in coppers. Found in a small bag in writing desk, one crown, four half-crown, one shilling, English. In a tin box in desk, forty-five sovereigns, ten half-sovereigns, folded up in paper, an order from the Commercial Bank of Scotland at Leith, 27th May 1834, on Commercial Bank, Kingston, for 330 sterling, in favour of Mr. William Ronaldson. The above property with a writing desk, has been deposited in the Montreal Bank by Mr. Buchanan and Dr. Harkness, and the other effects are being removed to the store of Mr. McLellan, the consignee of the vessel in which the unfortunate sufferers arrived. — Quebec Mercury.

[the Ronaldson family sailed on the brig Conference, which departed Leith on May 28th 1834 with 142 settlers, arrived first at Grosse Isle on July 29th and then at the port of Quebec on August 6th with only 110 settlers. The vessel was turned back to the Quarantine Station and detained for nearly a month. There were 19 deaths at Grosse Isle Hospital, mostly from cholera]

Six Lives Lost by the partial Explosion of a Steamer's Boiler

The first fatal accident of this kind since the introduction of steamers on the St. Lawrence, in 1811, — twenty-three years ago, — unfortunately occurred yesterday, (Sunday [7th Sept ?]) about four o'clock A.M., on board the steamer Lady of the Lake, Captain Nickless. The vessel was just leaving the Queen's Wharf, for Montreal, and had cast off all her moorings but one, when the explosion took place, and was heard by some of the persons on deck to make a noise like the discharge of a musket. The party exposed to the steam which escaped, occupied a middle cabin, and like many of the passengers that trip, had slept on board. They were, at the time of the accident, all in bed, with the key of the door turned, by which the steam was unable to escape. We give the details before the inquest held this day.
Two inquests were being held this morning on the bodies of the unfortunate individuals who met their deaths on board the Lady of the Lake. They were in easy circumstances and came in the brig Conference, Captain Buchan, from Leith, sent back to the Quarantine Station, and and detained for near a month.
There were eight individuals in the cabin at the time of the explosion, six of whom have died. The two survivors, Jane Ronaldson, aged two years and Robert Ronaldson, aged seven weeks, are still in a very dangerous state. The first inquest was held on the bodies of William Ronaldson, aged twenty-nine years ; Ellen Ronaldson, aged twenty-nine years ; Ellen Ronaldson, aged six years ; Archibald Ronaldson, aged four years ; Thomas Moffat, aged four months ; who all died in less than twenty-four hours after the accident. The next inquest was upon the body of Grace Purvis, aged twenty years, who expired this morning. .........edited......... We understand that Mr. Ronaldson and his wife were from Leith, in Scotland, or the neighbourhood of that town. A brother of Mr. R. is supposed to reside at Bytown, on the Ottawa ; another at Philadelphia ; and he had himself lately returned from Van Dieman's Land. They had with them all their family, and a respectable young servant woman, Grace Purvis. We learn that there is very little expectation that the two surviving children will recover. The bodies which were shockingly scalded could not be recognised. They are all deposited ...... missing text

...from the Sept. 13th issue, Montreal Gazette
There were some slight inaccuracies in our account of the of the persons who were victims to the explosion of the Lady of the Lake on Sunday. Grace Purvis was not a servant to Mr. Ronaldson, but sister-in-law to Mr. Moffat, whose wife died of cholera while the Conference was detained at quarantine, leaving one child about six weeks old. Grace Purvis had just gone to the berth, for Mrs. Ronaldson to give suck to the child Thomas Moffat, when the accident happened. The two surviving children are under the care of Mr. McCombich, upholsterer, and we understand little hope is held for their recovery.

[Margaret (Purvis) Moffat, aged twenty-nine years, died of cholera at Grosse Isle, on August 31st 1834.]

Died:—
At the Quarantine Station, Grosse Isle, on the 9th instant, Mr. James Smith, late of Leslie, Fifeshire, Scotland, and 56 years ; and on the 6th instant, Mrs. Smith, his wife, aged 51, leaving a family of one son and five daughters to lament their loss. Three of the daughters are in this city, and the remainder in Scotland. Mr. Smith and family came out in the Conference, from Leith. Mr. Smith died of debility from the effects of fever and ague, brought on by fatigue and exposure at the station ; Mrs. Smith of diarrhoea, attended with fever. Mr. Smith was for many years and esteemed and useful elder of the Baptist Church, Dunfermline, Scotland, and latterly of a similar one at Leslie. At the same place on the 8th August, Peter, aged 9 years, youngest son of the above.

Jane, daughter of Mr. Ronaldson, aged two years and-half, one of the unfortunate sufferers by the bursting of the Lady of the Lake's boiler, on Sunday week last, died yesterday morning, exactly seven days after the accident. The infant boy and brother, aged seven weeks, is also not expected to survive.

The absence of the necessary regulations for the conveyance of emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland to this Province, the crowded state of the ships employed for this purpose, and frequently the insufficiency of the provisions, the poverty arising from the improvidence of many of the emigrants, joined to the inconveniences necessarily incident to such a voyage, have caused the landing upon our shores of numbers of sick and destitute emigrants, whereby the destructive malady of cholera, with which we were visited in 1832, and again in the present year, has been produced, or greatly aggravated.

The new steamer, Commodore Barrie, arrived here Sunday morning with passengers &c. from Kingston. She appears to be a first rate boat and is propelled by a double engine of thirty-two horse power each. We understand she will remain on this line the remainder of the season in conjunction with the St. George. — Toronto Recorder

Robert Ronaldson, aged eight weeks, the only surviving sufferer from the bursting of the Lady of the Lakes's engine, died yesterday morning. This is the eighth victim of the accident, and formed the whole of those in the room at the time the steam broke through.

Passengers:
In the Naparima, sailed on Thursday morning for Dublin — Miss Millitt and Miss D.G. Millitt.

A report prevailed at Quebec on Thursday afternoon, that the Caroline, Greig, from London which arrived at the quarantine station on Tuesday, had lost twelve passengers on the passage, seven of whom were said to have died of cholera, and five of other diseases ; seven cases of sickness, it was also stated, had been landed on the Island. There is every reason to suppose that the rumour greatly exaggerates the evil, but that more probably it is essentially incorrect. There was no communication with the station by telegraph on Thursday, but the superintendent at the Cape (Mr. Watt) in a note to Mr. Roberts of the Exchange, dated on Thursday afternoon, says: — "The passengers in the Caroline were on Tuesday evening reported in health, excepting one case of protracted diarrhoea. The deaths were said to be from indigestion." Mr. Roberts adds: — "You will observe that Mr. Watt does not give the number of deaths, but it appears that they were not from cholera."

It is always pleasing to meet with acknowledgements of the kindness of Captains of vessels to their passengers. Among the latest of these complimentary letters that we have observed, are those addressed to Captain Gorman, of the Breeze, and Captain Elliot, of the Molson. The first of these, couched in the warmest language, expresses the heartfelt gratitude of the passengers to Captain Gorman, for his kindness on the passage from Limerick, and it is a gratifying proof of this gentleman's well earned popularity. The address to captain Elliot is signed by the Rev. William Alexander and about fifty others, for themselves, wives and families, and bears testimony to the attention they received during their voyage from Scotland to Canada, nothing that could contribute to their comfort being ever withheld, and no wish expressed but it was gratified, in in his power.
But a still more substantial mark of regard was presented by the cabin passengers of the ship Robertson, (twenty-seven in number,) on her late voyage from Greenock, to her commander, Captain Neill. A splendid silver cup, as a testimony of the high opinion they entertain of him, both as a sailor and a gentleman, was presented on Thursday last Mr. Law, with some appropriate remarks, to which Captain Neill very feelingly replied. The inscription on the cup is as follow : — "Presented to Captain John Neill, ship Robertson, by the cabin passengers, on a voyage from Greenock to Montreal, as a mark of their esteem for his character, and gratitude for his kind attention. — August, 1834

The St. George brought up eighty-nine passengers, on Monday last, 16th instant, of whom between fifty and sixty only, were emigrants — all from the South of Scotland. No English or Irish emigrants. The steamer Constitution arrived here on Tuesday evening with twenty-eight passengers. — Toronto Recorder

The steamer Lady of the Lake arrived yesterday from Montreal. She has a new Captain (Mr. J.H. Turner) as well as a new engineer, with certificates that the engines and boilers are fit for three years service ; and under these circumstances, it is unfair that any prejudice, arising from mere accident, should operate against the boat. She starts tomorrow morning. — Quebec Gazette, Monday
