A.C. Buchanan,
Chief Agent

We learn that on Saturday last there were 1700 sick at the Quarantine Station. This increase is accounted for by the removals from shipboard to the superior accommodation now provided on the island. At the same time there were 26 vessels in detention.

We are informed that Mr. Bazil Demer's steam-ferry-boat St. Nicholas was totally burnt, last night, at the St. Nicholas wharf.

We intimated in our last, that the prayer of the St. Rochs petition, against the erection of sheds near the Marine Hospital, had been adopted by the Council. At the same meeting we had it was further resolved, that a petition be immediately addressed to the Executive, setting forth, that without the immediate erection of a temporary hospital at Point Levy, and of further help at Grosse Isle, the loss of a great number of unfortunate emigrants is certain, and that the health of the citizens of Quebec will be in danger.

Capt. Hunter, of the brig Vine, arrived yesterday, spoke the bark Cleopatra, from Quebec, on the 6th June, off St. Pauls, making 3 feet water per hour, and was going into Sydney.

The bark Calcutta, spoke the Wm. Pirrie, from Belfast, with passengers, and the Wilhelmina, all well-no date given.

The Bolivar spoke the John Bull, of London, off Cape Chat, on the 11th June.

Mr. Wm. Henry, of this city, furnished the Exchange, yesterday, with the following extracts of letters received by the Eastern Mail:--

"Chatham, 3rd June, 1847
"Captain Thain, of the ship Loostauk, 636 tons, from Liverpool to Quebec, out 7 weeks, had, when she left Liverpool, 349 passengers, out of which 117 have died, and of the ship's crew only five are able to work. The ship's sails are much split, and the jib and foresail are carried away. Within the last three days 35 of the passengers have died; and out of the whole number on board, not more than 20 have escaped sickness. The Captain requires immediate assistance to bring the ship up the river. One hundred of the passengers are sick and the crew unable to work. The Captain says that he and his crew will be compelled to leave the ship, unless assistance is sent, as they consider their lives in danger. Six of the passengers were committee to the deep, five or six miles from Escuminai, yesterday. In the early states of the disease, the sick are seized with delirium, and dysentery follows and soon carries them off."

"Canso, 26th May, 1847.
"News reached here to-day by a schooner, that a vessel bound to Quebec, with 400 passengers on board, was totally lost on the Scatari Islands during the easterly storm last week; and, shocking to relate, only six persons out of the whole were saved.

To Captain Cockerill.
Dear Sir,-We, the Undersigned Passengers of the Barque Orlando, of Sunderland, from Warren Point to Quebec, feel highly thankful for the kind attention of you and your officers on the passage. Also for the strict discipline and cleanliness which was kept on board, we all humbly believe was the principal cause of not having any sickness, which prevailed on board many other ships bringing Emigrants to this Port.

  Shipping Intelligence
The steamer Neptune returned from Grosse Isle yesterday. She reports that 12 vessels, with passengers, arrived at the Quarantine on Monday, making 32 in all, when she left.

Among the vessels arrived at Grosse Isle on Monday, were the Wm Pirrie, Josepha, Jessie and Wilhelmina, the passengers of which are reported in good health.

The wrecks of the bark Rory O'More and ship John Geddie, have been surveyed and condemned. They will be sold for account of the underwriters, the former on Tuesday and the latter on Wednesday next.

Five or six schooners laden with the goods and materials saved from the Rory O'More, have lately arrived here. The goods The goods are being forwarded to Montreal, and the materials will be sold here.

A Schooner arrived here this morning from Gaspé, laden with goods saved from the Magnet, wrecked on Anticosti last fall.

The steamer North America left for Montreal yesterday with the Per?, Viola, George Hudson, Catherine, and two barges in tow.

The Lumber Merchant also left yesterday for the same port with the Vesta and London in tow.

Miramichi, May 31st-Arrived-Schr. Primrose, Duquet, from Quebec. June 3rd-Schr. Margaret, Desjardins, from do. 5th-Schr Lord David, Corriveau, from do.

Halifax, June 8th-Arrived-Schr. St. Lawrence, Vigneault, 18 days from Montreal.

The steamer St. George left for Montreal yesterday with the Sedulous, Pasha, Phœnix, and a barge in tow.

By the last accounts from Grosse Isle, it appears there are 1500 sick on the island and 1000 on shipboard. The steamer Neptune came up yesterday. She reports the arrival of 12 more vessels, making in all 33 vessels detained in quarantine. It appears that very little diminution has taken place in the mortality. Four of the Roman Catholic Clergymen employed at the station, we regret to say, have been infected with the fever, and a circular has been sent by his grace the Archbishop to those members of the clergy who have a sufficient knowledge of the English language, to be ready at the first notice, to afford their assistance to the sick. The spiritual wants of the Protestant sick are likewise indefatigably attended to by the Lord Bishop of Montreal and his clergy.

The weather has at length taken a favourable turn; yesterday was fair, and there is every appearance this morning of a continuance. During a considerable part of the month of May we had very dry windy weather, after the disappearance of the snow, which caused the country to look bare and brown; but under the influence of the late rains, the pastures have been greatly benefitted, a beautiful verdure now covers the surrounding fields, and with the moisture that the soil has imbibed, it is well prepared for the action of warm sunshine, which is all that now appears wanting to give us a certain prospect of a good harvest.

Montreal, June 15.-Two men were killed, and two others severely injured, by lightning, near St. Pie, during the thunderstorm on Thursday last.

The eastern mail arrived yesterday, furnishing us with Halifax and Fredericton papers of the 10th, and the Miramichi Gleaner of the 8th instant. From the latter paper we copy the following further particulars respecting the passenger vessel Loosthauk, allusion to which we have already made in a previous number.

"Miramichi, June 8.-The usual quiet of our little town was considerably disturbed on Thursday afternoon last, by the appearance of a ship's boat, off Henderson's wharf, and one of the parties hailing some of the persons thereon, stating he wished to be put in communication with the public authorities. A number of individuals speedily congregated, among them two or three Magistrates. The person in the boat then said his name was Thane, that he commanded the ship Loosthauk, belonging to Dublin, of upwards of 600 tons, from Liverpool, bound to Quebec, out seven weeks: that he had when he left port, 467 passengers, 117 of whom died on the passage; that there were now 100 unable to help themselves, and that the crew, from exhaustion, were not able to work the ship. He craved medical attendance, fresh provisions, bread, &c. Two of the Poor Commissioners being present, immediately set about collecting necessaries, and to the credit of the inhabitants of the town, the appeal to their humanity was spontaneously responded to. In a short time a large quantity of beef, bread, and other supplies were collected, and put on board the boat. The Hon. Joseph Cunard furnished the Captain with written instructions to the Commander of his Steamer, which was hourly expected from below, to tow the vessel up to the Quarantine ground. On Friday evening she was brought up by the steamer to the station, near Middle Island, and yesterday the passengers were landed on that island, where temporary sheds had been erected for their reception on Sunday. The number of deaths, as far as we have been able to ascertain since she put into this port, up to yesterday evening, was forty-a shocking mortality-and several bodies were interred on Saturday, Sunday, and yesterday evening on the Island.-Eleven births occurred on the passage-one on Sunday. The disease is Typhus fever.

The Eastern Chronicle, in speaking of the loss of the ship Miracle, before mentioned in this paper, and the arrival of the passengers at Pictou, says:--
"The emigrants without exception were in the most deplorable condition; such as were comparatively well, were afflicted with swelled limbs and mortified toes, and they drew the most horrifying pictures of their sufferings. During the night on which the ship struck, upwards of sixty perished from exposure to cold and wet and from sickness and about 20 more died on the island: 281 were shipped for Pictou, two of those died on the passage, and within the short space of three days, thirteen more we are informed have died."

In the packet ship Waterloo, sailed from New York for Liverpool-Mr. Robert Armour and Miss Armour, of Canada.

Information Wanted:
Patrick McNulty is desirous of obtaining information concerning Catherine, Sarah, James and John McNulty, who left Liverpool for Quebec after the beginning of May last, and whom he supposes to have arrived either here or at the Quarantine Station. Please address to the above at the Emigrant Office, Quebec.

(Long item about the formation of an Emigrant Society with the following objectives:)

Grosse Isle.-On reference to our shipping intelligence it will be seen that four more passenger vessels had arrived there on Tuesday last with 1126 emigrants, the aggregate number of deaths in these four on their passage having been 58. It is said this morning that a vessel had subsequently arrived at the Station on board which there had been 90 deaths.

Yesterday afternoon, a violent storm of thunder and lightning, accompanied with heavy rain and hail, passed over this city. The electric fluid, we have been informed, struck a cottage on the St. Foy Road, a little beyond the Toll Bar, the property of E. Burroughs, Esq. The damage done was trifling, we believe: none of the inmates were injured, further than being stunned by the concussion.

Adcident.[sic]-A seaman of the Ship Sarah, now in port, was accidentally drowned yesterday afternoon, in going on board.

  We learn from the Kingston Chronicle and Gazette, that the emigrants, on arriving there, are forwarded as soon as they are able to proceed-and over as wide a section of the Province as possible. About one half of the whole go to Toronto and Hamilton, and the remainder have been distributed between Cobourg, Port Hope, Windsor, and St. Catherines. The Earl Cathcart, Propeller, took a number of indigent emigrants to ports on Lake Erie, and at least 150 have been sent up the Bay of Quinte, and to the Townships in rear of Kingston.

The number already forwarded, amount to from 9 to 10 thousand. The deaths have not been great in proportion-not more than ten deaths in Hospital-and from the Sheds and Lodging House, not more than 20 or 25 at the outside.

  In consequence of the arrival of large numbers of Emigrants, and the expected arrival of many more, from different parts of the United Kingdom, and especially from Ireland, a large proportion of whom are in a state of extreme destitution, it has been found expedient to organize an Emigrant Society for the city of Quebec. A public meeting for that purpose has been held and the necessary preliminaries arranged for carrying out the project.

But little amelioration has taken place in the sickness at the Quarantine Station, since our last summary was written; and the mortality, we fear, has not at all diminished. The number of vessels at the station to this date is about thirteen. The Marine Hospital and sheds adjoining are full of sick; but the deaths at these places, are few in proportion tot he number of sick.

A Soup Kitchen has been established in Quebec, for the relief of destitute emigrants, at which on Thursday last, we learn, 135 families were supplied with soup and gruel, and yesterday the number was increased to 200 families.

Until within the two past days, we have had a continuance of heavy rains. Since Thursday, we are happy to state, dry warm weather has set in, the thermometer ranging between 80 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. No injury, that we can learn, has been done to the crops, which here as well as over every part of the continent of America, give pleasing indications of an abundant harvest. In the State of Ohio they expect the wheat harvest will commence in about a week hence.

We believe all of our spring traders have arrived, except the Vindicator, with a general cargo from Liverpool. Concerning this vessel, we are sorry to state, that not one word of intelligence has been received; and several of our retailers have, in consequence of her non-arrival, been subjected not only to much inconvenience, but to very serious pecuniary loss. Some of them having the greater part of their spring supply on board this ill-fated vessel, their stocks have become exhausted, and in many instances they have been unable to meet the demands of their customers.

The two new ships "Ringfield" and "Riverdale," built by Messrs. G.H. Parke & Co., of this city, the past winter, and now gone to sea, amounted in value, together with their freights and cargoes, to £75,000 and upwards.

Shipping Intelligence
Captain Ledgwick, of the bark Juverna, arrived yesterday, reports having seen a vessel on fire to the eastward of the Banks of Newfoundland, on the 6th instant; could not make out her name; the crew had been saved.

The passengers by the bark "Royalist," Capt. Beveridge, from Liverpool, in a letter published in the Freeman's Journal, have acknowledged in grateful terms, his kind and assiduous attention to them on the passage out. Want of space prevents us from inserting it.

Arrivals At The Albion Hotel
June 29th-Doctor Brigham and lady, of Utica, New York; Robt. L. Read, N. Kellogg and lady, Madigar and lady and two children, New York; Edward Diffenderffer?, Baltimore; D.S. Brown and lady, 3 children and servant, Miss M. Johnson, Miss M. Morris, David Scull, lady and two daughters, H. Grim, Philadelphia; Knapp, P. Duchesnay, Montreal.

We are indebted to the Montreal Gazette for the subjoined particulars respecting the Quarantine Establishment at Grosse Isle:--
The medical staff of the hospitals and sheds consists of,-Drs. G.M. douglas, medical superintendent; Jacquies, assistant medical officer; Fenwick, Dickenson, Malhiot, Larocque, Jameson, jr., Damours, Dease, in charge of tents, &c., ; Pinet, assistant in hospitals; Watt, Robillard, Sauve. Mr. Barker, apothecary; Mr. Cullingford, dispenser of medicines; Mr. McRay, chief steward; Mrs. Fisher, matron.

There are 77 employed, including ten stewards of hospitals, 15 cooks, and 52 orderlies and nurses. The number of sick under treatment on shore, on the 25th instant, was 1830, and on board vessels afloat, 114. Two new hospitals have been erected, and are occupied with 260 beds. Another, capable of receiving 120, would be ready on Friday. Two others are in a state of forwardness, but much difficulty is experienced in obtaining workmen, as few can be tempted, even by high wages, to work in the vicinity of the hospitals.

Tents have been erected on the farm at the east end of the island, capable of accommodating 3000 persons. The healthy from vessels where much sickness has prevailed, are landed, and their baggage, at these tents, where, after washing and purifying for a few days, are shipped direct, on board the steamers for Montreal.

The district of Dumfries, in the upper section of the province, has been visited by most disastrous hail and thunder storms. The farms and orchards are said to be desolated, and within a radius of two miles, the loss of wheat alone is estimated at ten thousand bushels.

New York, June 24-Cleared-Ship Hindostan, Lamb, for Quebec.

Arrivals At The Albion Hotel
June 30th-Mr. And Mrs. Gardner, Mrs. And Miss Cobb, Boston, Mass.; Mr. R.J. Fisk and lady, Boston; Messrs. J Leonard, S.L Beatty, B. Huntington, Covell and lady, New York; Mr. R. W. James, Mr. Cole and lady, Albany, N.Y.; Miss Whitemore, New Haven, Ct.; Mr. R. Christie, London, C.W.; Mr. John S. Gilman, Presscott, C.W., Mr. W.H. Wilson, Brockville; Mr. W.R. Seaver, Montreal.

We copy from a late English paper the following receipt for the prevention of infection from typhus Fever, for which Dr. J.C. Smith is stated to have obtained £5000 from Parliament:--
"Take six drachms of powdered nitre (saltpetre) and six drachms of sulphuric acid (oil of vitriol); mix them in a tea-cup. By adding one drachm of the oil at a time, a copious discharge of nitrous acid will take place. The cup is to be placed during the preparation on a hot hearth or a plate of heated iron, and the mixture stirred with a tobacco pipe. The quantity of gas may be regulated by lessening or increasing the quantity of ingredients. The above is for a moderate-sized room; half the quantity would be sufficient for a small room. Avoid as much as possible breathing the gas when it first rises from the vessel." No injury to the lungs will happen when the air is impregnated with the gas, which is called nitrous acid gas; and it cannot be too widely known that it possesses the property of preventing the spread of fever.

The Chief Agent of Emigration has leased, at a rent of £100, a large store near the "Inclined Plane" wharf, from Mr. Jones, for the reception of such emigrant families as are detained here waiting for the recovery of their sick friends. He likewise proposes to appropriate the building on the India Wharf, for the temporary accommodation of such healthy emigrants as may be landed too late to leave by the evening boat.

The passengers by the bark Nelson Village have presented to Captain McBurnie, the commander of that vessel, a Gold Chain, and a Gold Ring to Mr. Howard, his chief officer, in token of their gratitude for the kind an assiduous attention bestowed upon them during their voyage from Belfast. The presentation was made by Messrs. John Phillips and William McClenon, on behalf of 214 passengers.

Captain McBurnie acknowledged feelingly this mark of approbation, and would cherrish while life should last, the remembrance of this expression of regard for having performed faithfully that which was no more than his duty.

All complaints of the coldness and the moisture of the weather have now ceased. Heat and dryness are the texts for grumblers. In no weather, whatever, that even providence itself can devise, will suit everybody's notions of what is right and comfortable. For the last two days, the sun has shone with intense vigour. Thermometers are, with difficulty, kept down to 88 in the coolest apartments of dwelling houses, and in the open air, they run up some twenty degrees higher. Every body says, as every body says every year, such hot weather never was known. Nevertheless, however disagreeable to the feelings, it is most favourable to the progress of vegetation--Montreal Gazette.

Snow in June!-The Wilmington, (Del.) Journal says a severe snow storm visited the farmers near and above the Pennsylvania boundary line on Monday last. Snow fell for nearly an hour in some places, and must have injured the crops, but we hear of no serious damage.
