* These are the prices when the passengers are victualed according to the ordinary Diet Scale of the ship.
Charges for Children:—The general practise in charging for children is, to compute them according to the Passengers' Act, viz., Children from 1 to 14 years of age, half the price of adults ; under 1, no charge ; but there are exceptions to this rule.
Caution:—Emigrants to New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, or Nova Scotia, should not proceed thither by way of Quebec. — See page 19 [sic]

extracted from July 1849 Colonization Circular No. 9, p. 18

Caution against proceeding to New Brunswick &c. via Quebec:—Emigrants whose destination may be New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, or Nova Scotia, are particularly cautioned against taking passage to Quebec, as there are no regular means of conveyance from that port to any of the Lower Provinces. The charge of passage by occasional schooners, is to Miramichi, New Brunswick, 15 shillings, to Prince Edward Island, 20 shillings, to Halifax, Nova Scotia, 25 shillings, each adult, without provisions ; length of passage from ten to twenty days. The route to St. John, New Brunswick is much more difficult, as vessels seldom leave Quebec direct for that port, and the general mode of conveyance is by schooner to Miramichi, and thence by land. Several weeks may elapse without a vessel offering for any of these ports.
