Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1826

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 Canadian Courant & Montreal Advertiser CC.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1826.

1. An Act to repeal the general Laws relating to Quarantine .... —By this act, the shipping interest is relieved from the tonnage duty formerly payable on vessels subject to quarantine, many restraints are removed ; the penalty of death for a breach of quarantine is done away with ; and the pecuniary penalties are considerably reduced. ....
6. An Act for the encouragement of British shipping and navigation, cap. 109.— This act contains the whole law on the subject of the importation of goods of different countries from the several parts of the world ; and should be in the possession of the master of every British vessel trading to foreign parts.
The principal provisions of this act are:
'First, the allowing the produce of foreign countries in Asia, Africa and America to be imported in their own ships.
'Secondly, the allowing all the produce of the Mediterranean, and of the dominions of the Emperor of Morocco, to be imported in British ships, from any place in the Mediterranean.
'Thirdly, as formerly, British ships are to be navigated by a master and crew, whereof fourths at least are British ; but every such vessel is to be deemed duly navigated, which shall have one national seaman to every 20 tons, whatever may be the number of foreign seamen.
'To those parties, and numerous they are, who, with an ample three-fourths of a crew national seamen have unfortunately had a fraction of foreign seamen on board, exceeding one fourth of the whole number, the value of a fixed rule like this will be felt.
'Fouthly, the penalty for an excess of foreign seamen is 10/- for each man. A ship is no longer liable, for trifling or unintentional fault, to be dragged by a cruiser thousands of miles out of her voyage, there being no for feiture of that ship throughout the Act. ....

By a Postscript in the Commercial Advertiser, we are informed that the Packet ship Columbia, which sailed from Liverpool on the 3rd March, had arrived at New York on the 1st instant. There are 9 Packets from Liverpool, 3 from London, and 3 from Havre, now on their way to the port of New York, consequently we may expect by next mail abundance of information, for which we still wait before giving utterance to some reports which are in Circulation through town, upon mercantile transactions.

Shipwreck.— The ship Queen Mab, March 29th, lat. 42, long. 62 22, fell in with the brig Mary, Mayward, of and from Boston, in a sinking condition— her crew being in such an exhausted situation that they were unable to get their boat out ; on perceiving which we lowered our boat and suceeded with difficulty, a heavy sea running, and it blowing fresh, in getting her crew off the wreck.
Captain Mayward sailed from Boston, 26th March, for Gottenburg, with a cargo of sugar, coffee, fustic, and cotton ; when Captain M. left her, the main deck was a foot and a half under water. The leak commenced on the night of the 27th, in a heavy gale. Vessel and cargo lost. John Blair, an American seamen, one of the crew of the Mary, died on board the Queen Mab.

From the New York Daily Advertiser
Mr. Canning and Professor Everett.— We find by our late English papers that long discussions were held in the House of Commons in the beginning of March, on the subject of West India Slavery. We quote below a sentence from Mr. Canning's remarks to compare it with a sentiment lately advanced in the Congress of the U. States, on the same point.
During his speech on the Panama question, Mr. Everett said: "Domestic Slavery is not in my judgement, to be set down as an immoral and irreligious relation."
Mr. Canning said
"No man would affirm that a state of slavery is consistent with the British constitution, and still less was it consistent with the mild spirit of Christianity."
Melancholy Catastrophe.— A letter published in the New-Haven Herald dated at Antigua, West Indies, March 9th states that the whole of the Methodist Mission Family stationed at that Island, had been shipwrecked near a small place called Sandy Island. They were wrecked in the mail boat from Montserrat to Antigua, having left the vessel they had been to St. Kitts in and which arrived safe, she being a dull sailor. — The persons on board, besides the crew, were : Rev. Mr. White, wife, three children and servant ; Rev. Mr. Hilliar ; Rev. Mr. Oak ; Rev. Mr. Jones, wife & infant child ; Mr. ——, and the missionary & wife ; and a young lady — in all twenty-one persons, of whom only the wife of Mr. Jones was saved, and she was so ill that the doctors forbid her being questioned. The folloeing circumstances, however have been communicated by her : the vessel struck on the reef in the night, three or four days had elapsed wen she was taken off. — Mr. White, his wife and three children, and servant were all swept away together, clinging to each other ; Mr. Hilliar attempted to swim to Sandy Island, and was drowned in her sight ; her infant was washed away from her arms ; her husband died on her lap, the night before she was taken off, and was washed away. As returning recollection opens to her the horrors of the scene she has witnessed, I am told she often exclaims, "O, Captain Whitney, why did he save me !" Capt. W. saved her, when only himself and her were on the wreck, by placing her between the bowsprit bitts, where she was found, insensible. The body of Captain W. was the only one found.
Port of Montreal.— The Steam Boat Le Canadian arrived here on Monday evening, and proceeded yesterday to Laprairie, between which place and this city, we understand she is to ply regularly twice a day until the 20th next month. The Laprairie left here this morning at four o'clock for Laprairie, where she is to take in tow the new Steam Ferry Boat Henry, which was launched last fall. The Laprairie will, probably commence her first trip to Quebec tomorrow night.
There are now twelve schooners and one brigantine in port.
About 11 o'clock, on Friday night last, a meteor was discovered directly over this city, which for the moment, shed a light of such brilliancy as to strike the beholders with admiraton. The size appeared to be many degrees larger than the moon, when at full, and was visible about two or three seconds, when it dissolved "into thin air," without any explosion. Various conjectures and forbodings have been hazarded by many of our superstitious pretenders to astronomy, on account of this vistor, all of which are too absurd to merit attention.

April 22nd - CC An action for breach of promise of marriage was lately tried at New York, where the Plaintiff, a youthful Adonis, was nearly 75 years old, and the faithless nymph who had "stole his tender heart away," only about sixty-six !! — 200 dollars was awarded to the Plaintiff, with costs.

In York, Upper Canada, an action for damages, in consequences of a disappointment in Marriage, occasioned by defamation, was tried. The Plaintiff was a Miss Jane White, lately arrived from England, and the Defendants name is Mark Hutchinson, who had formerly paid his addresses to her, but was refused. The slander was made in presence of a young man (a Mr. Milburn) to whom Plaintiff was about to be married, but who broke off the match in consequence of the statement of the Defendant. Verdict for Plaintiff, damages £100 — Defendant in now in York Jail for the amount, and costs of suit.

Public Lamps.— We have been frequently requested to notice the shameful state in which the few street Lamps that our city can boast of are suffered to remain during the day. The oil which remains in them overnight, is not properly cleaned out early in the morning as it should be, and therefore continues dropping on the clothes of those who may unfortunately pass beneath, on the sunny side of the street. This is even a more unpleasant thing than plumping to the knee in a mud hole of a dark night, when the lamps have either been lighted, before the sun has "hid his blushing countenance behind the mountain," or not lit at all, just as the convenience of those concerned happen to order it, — for in the latter case the mud can be washed, or brushed off in the morning, but in the former, it sticks like the spot on the fair hand of Lady Macbeth. — In out humble opinion this department of our city arrangement is not unworthy of investigation by the proper authorities.
The Steam Boat LaPrairie departed from this place yesterday morning, on her first trip to Quebec. The other Boats it may be expected will be in full operation in a few days.
The Hercules, Lady Sherbrooke, Chambly, Richelieu and Swiftsure are now in Port, preparing for the Summer's business:—
Since the Le Canadiene has commenced running twice a day to Laprairie, our markets have been better supplied than they were since the ice was rendered impassable ; and our citizens have been greatly benefitted by the facility which is thus given to an intercourse with those on the other side of the river.
The Steam Boat William Annesley was purchased at public auction in Clamp's Coffee House, by Stanley Bagg, Esq. for £855.
April 26th - CC

Short Passage.— The ship Navy, arrived at Charleston Saturday week last, from Liverpool. It is stated in the Charleston papers that the ship had been only sixty-one days absent for the latter port. The Packet ship William Thompson, Captain Bowne, of this port, the last voyage, was absent only sixty-five days. He had a passage of only 17 days out, the passengers being only seventeen days from the time they left the City Hotel, in this city, until they were snugly at supper in the King's Arms in Liverpool. Captain B. came back in twenty-five days, having been only forty-two days at sea on the voyage both ways.

  Montreal.— About 10 o'clock on Saturday night, the Steam Boat Le Canadien was discovered on fire, by a person in the village of Laprairie, who ran down and alarmed the persons on board ; the fire had communicated to the covering of the stair case leading to the Cabin, which prevented the people ascending in that place, they were therfore obliged to go on deck through the sky-light hole, with the exception of the Pilot who escaped through the window of the ladies cabin into the water. When they got on deck they found the flames raging in a small apartment usually appropriated to hold hand-spikes, &c. and in endeavouring to put it out the men got severely burned in the hands. Capt. Cameron was not on board when the circumstance took place, but arrived in proper time to take the necessary precaution for preserving the Boat. He immediately caused the injection pipe which goes through the bottom of the Boat, to be cut off, and had a number of holes bored, to let in the water, so as she might sink as low as possible, being in only four & an half feet water, this measure saved the lower works, but the deck in the rear of the engine is entirely destroyed, and some of the beams burned nearly through. The front of the office was much scorched, but sustained no other injury. The engine, and all forward of it, did not experience any damage. A fire Engine was promptly brought from the village, which kept playing on the fire until it was completely extinguished. Great credit is due to the persons on board, and to others from the town, for their exertions, as if the utmost caution had not been used the whole of this fine vessel would have been destroyed. The amount of damage is supposed to be about 7 or £800. We are informed that no fire was on board that night and even a candle had not been lighted, which is strong presumptive evidence that this transaction had its origin in some villainous incendiary. If such be the case we sincerely hope the perpetrator may be discovered, and punished with the utmost severity which the law provides for such offenders.

Date Vessel Master Sailed From Passengers Remarks/Consigned to
April 25 bark Walrus Wright 18 March London Mr. Boyd & G. St.Amand and wife to P. Patterson / in ballast

Shipping Intelligence.— The Walrus entered the Gulph on the 14th instant, encountered very little ice, and saw a brig on the same day apparently bound up. Montmorenci, Crown, Sir George Provost, and two or three others were to sail about fives days after.

  The Walrus, Capt. Wright, which sailed from London on the 18th March, arrived at Quebec on the 25th instant. This is the first arrival from the sea this season, but we are sorry that no papers have been received by it. It is astonishing that the Masters of vessels bound from London, or other British ports, to this Country, do not take more pains to provide the latest papers, as they should consider that the people in Canada are anxious to receive early intelligence. The New York Captains are always furnished with the news down to the day of sailing, which renders their arrival more welcome than it otherwise would be.
On Wednesday last the steam boat Laprairie arrived here from Quebec, being the first that has made the voyage this season. Messrs. Maywood and Keene, whose professional talents in their different vocations are so justly esteemed in this City, came passengers in the Laprairie. We do not know whether either of these Gentlemen will renew a Theatrical engagement here, before their departure for New York.

April 28 bark Trio Leslie 25 March Waterford 28 settlers to Sheppard & Campbell / in ballast

Shipping Intelligence.— There has been but one arrival since the Walrus. A number of river craft have come up from different parts below, but afford no intelligence of any vessels being in the river ; as a number are, however known to have sailed early, their arrival may be daily looked for.

Some have affected to believe that Lake Erie at the mouth of Grand River is not much sooner open in spring, than at Buffalo. We are now able to inform them upon the most unquestionable authority, in addition to the following paragraph from the Buffalo Journal of the 25th March last, that the Lake, opposite the point intended as the entrance of the Welland Canal has been entirely clear of ice for more than four weeks ! —Farmers' Journal.

"Lake Navigation.— On the 10th instant, the schooner Morning Star, Capt. Castillo, arrived at Detroit, from Portland, Ohio, with produce—the first arrival this season. But although the Lake is free of ice in the upper part, still it is full here ; nor is there a prospect of its being open until some time in May, as the ice, we understand, extends as far up as the Grand River.
No Arrivals at Quebec Saturday May 6th - CC
The schooner Brothers, W. McHarron, master, of and for this port, from St. John's, Newfoundland out 8 days, struck on the West end of the Island of Sable on the 22nd January, at half-past 11 P.M.— The night was cold and tempestuous— the surf was running very high, and Mrs. Walsh, a female passenger of 21 years of age perished on the deck, and Patrick Cullerton, one of the crew, was washed overboard.— At 10 o'clock the next morning, Captain McHarron and the other survivors, had the good fortune to get safely on shore—they carried with them the infant child of Mrs. Walsh, about 12 months old, who almost immediately after the vessel struck was accidentally placed in a locker, in the Cabin, on the starboard side. The anxious mother frequently called for her child—but all on board supposed it had perished, as the Cabin was nearly filled with water. To their surprise, when the morning dawned, they discovered the child still lived, and every pains and care were taken to preserve it from the inclemency of the weather :— It is now in the hands of Mrs. Hudson, the wife of the superintendent of the Island, by whom, we have no doubt, it will be affectionately treated. Soon after landing, Capt. McHarron discovered a Hut, which contained Provisions, Fuel, the articles necessary to kindle a fire, and directions to enable him to find the residence of Mr. Hudson.— He proceeded thither, and during his stay on the Island, experienced every attention and comfort from him and his family. Ten days after landing, Richard White, another of the crew, died from fatigue, and from the severity of the weather to which he had been exposed.—(Halifax Paper)

May 10 ship Roxboro' Castle Denny 21 Jan. Canton   to Forsyth Richardson & Co. agents of the Honble. East-India Company / with a cargo of Teas

By private letters from Quebec received in town [Montreal] yesterday, we are informed that the Honble. East-India Company's Ship Roxborough Castle, Capt. Denny, from Canton, laden with teas, had arrived at Quebec on the 10th inst. The R.Castle left Canton on the 21st January last, and learned from the captain of an Indiaman, homeward bound at St. Helens, that the Burmese war had terminated—of this event (if correct) we may expect further particulars by the next arrival from England. We have also heard that another vessel from Greenock had arrived at Quebec, the name of which we have not ascertained, and it is likewise reported that the Honble. Doctor Stewart, Lord Bishop of Quebec, had come passenger in her.

Quebec, May 22 1826

We beg the attention of the Mercantile community to the extracts from the treaty between Great Britain and France, published in the French side of the Gazette. The principal features are ; That British and French vessels may not be admitted into the territory of Great Britain (except the possessions of the East-India Company) and France, and their colonies, upon a footing of entire reciprocity as to duties—and that the productions or manufactures of either power or of their colonies may be imported or exported in these vessels. A British vessel may therefore go direct to France or its colonies with the productions of Lower Canada, and pay the same duties as a French vessel now does ; and a French vessel may come direct from France or its colonies to Lower Canada, and pay the same duties as paid upon English vessels ; the reports being regulated in either country by the existing commercial laws.— Old Gazette

Singular.— On Thursday last as the Steam Boat Hercules was coming into this harbour [Montreal], having the brig Amethyst, and three schooners laden with Tea, in tow, the brig fired a gun, opposite the Masonic Hall Hotel, upon which, the body of Mr. Lamoine's son, who was drowned on Friday last, suddenly rose to the surface, and floated like a piece of wood, intil it was taken up, and carried to the distressed parents. We have frequently before heard, that when a Gun is discharged immediately over the place where a drowned body was lying, that it produced the effect above mentioned, but we cannot account for the absolute cause, although we have been told of many reasons why it is so.

The sailors at Bristol are holding out for an increase of wages, which the merchants cannot give, owing to the reduction in the value of freight.— Times

United States:
The Military post at Fort Niagara is soon to be abandoned. The troops are expected to leave there about the 15th or 20th inst. The post at Sackett's Harbour is also to be abandoned about the same time. The steam boat Superior has been chartered for the purpose of conveying the troops from Buffalo to Green Bay.
We also learn that the British troops at Fort George are about to be removed from that place.— Lew'n Sen.

Canal Navigation.— We understand that the repairs upon the canal, between Lockport and this place, will be so far completed, during the present week, as to admit the passage of boats. Arrivals have been frequent at Lockport, for several days past, and an immense quantity of goods are already there, destined for the west.

Steam Boat Chippawa.— This Boat has commenced plying between Cleveland and Detroit, touching at the imtermediate ports. She is commanded by Capt. Whitaker, and leaves each of the above mentioned ports every fourth day.— Buffalo Journal

  Several accidents have occurred in port during the last ten days. On Friday a boy belonging to the Cherub fell overboard and would, have been drowned had it not been for the humane and praise worthy conduct of the captain of that vessel, who plunged into the water and rescued him just as he was sinking. From the falling of planks used as gangways by the Steam Boats, a number of persons have gotten sound duckings, and one woman got her thigh broken.

Lieut. Col. Bye, Royal Engineers, who arrived from England on Tuesday last in the bark Endeavour, is, we learn from good authority, to proceed to Upper Canada, having been selected to superintend the execution of the Canal from Kingston to the Ottawa, which is to be immediately commenced.

The bark Sydney Packet, from Liverpool, was spoken off the Magdalen Islands by the Active, arrived yesterday from London and supplied with one man. The Sydney Packet had been ashore at St. Peter's Island, where the passengers (nine in number) and four seamen landed and remain.— the same vessel and a schooner are now on shore on White Island shoal.

Shipwreck.— The brig James Hunter, Bourden, from Halifax to Quebec, with a cargo of West Indian produce, was wrecked by a heavy gale with thick fog, on the 30th April, on the south side of Entry Island (Magdalen), when the fog cleared away, she was found to be about 200 feet from a sand beach, bother her boats were swamped along-side, and one man drowned ; one of the crew succeeded in reaching the shore in the chain-box, who procured assistance, and the remainder of the crew, with the passengers, succeeded in reaching the shore. All the cargo, except 6 puncheons, and a part of the materials were also saved ; it is feared the vessel will be lost ; a vessel has been chartered at Pictou, to proceed to Quebec with the cargo.

A distressing melancholy accident took place in the town of Derby, Vermont on Saturday, the 27th ult. Two men, one by the name of Elisha Goddard, the other Winthrop Fox, were engaged in rafting logs across a mill-pond, when suddenly, and unexpectedly, the raft separated, and they were both precipitated into the water. Goddard being a good swimmer, succeeded in reaching the shore, while Mr. Fox, not having the art was drowned. He was thirty-eight years three months, and seventeen days old when drowned, and left a wife and seven children (mostly small) to lament the loss of a kind, indulgent and affectionate husband and father. He was the son of Mr. Silas Fox of Stanstead, Lower Canada.

The Steamboat Lady Sherbrooke arrived Sunday evening from Quebec, having performed the passage in twenty hours and a half, including stoppage of two hours. This, we believe, is the quickest run ever made from Quebec to Montreal, with one exception, the same boat having a few years ago, performed it in nineteen hours.
The new Steamboat Edmund Henry, was on Sunday, for the first time, propelled by her engine to Laprairie. She will commence her regular trips between that village and Montreal, after her return from Quebec, whither she is going to be registered.
On Sunday morning as two large boats loaded with wood and lashed together, were coming up the river opposite the Quebec Suburb, owing to the boisterous state of the weather the ropes gave way and one of the boats swung round and upset. The men with the greatest difficulty saved, but the cargo was lost.
Last week, the Durham-boat Wellington, loaded with flour and ashes, was wrecked in coming down the Lachine rapids to avoid the canal tolls. The flour was saved but the ashes were lost. No lives were lost.
It is a singular circumstance, and we believe unprecedented, that since the opening of the navigation a considerable number of Squaws have been employed in bringing rafts from Chateaugay to Montreal ; two of whom do the work of a man, for which they receive half a dollar each—some sturdy ones take the oars and receive double wages.— Gazette
