Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1827

The following information on arrivals, due to the condition of the papers, has been taken from various sources including the Montreal Gazette MG, the U.E. Loyalist UEL 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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1827.

We are informed that 15 families of Emigrants arrived yesterday at Dundas, and proceed immediately to Guelph.—Gore Gazette

We have received the second report of the Committe of the House of Commons on the subject of Emigration, which we expect to be able to insert in our next. It is dated the fifth April, of the present year. After the confident expectations which have been entertained of an extensive emigration, considerable disappointment will be felt, on perceiving that for England and Scotland, the numbers to be disposed of, have dwindled downnto 1,200 families. These are to be selected from among the weavers of Lancashire, Cheshire, the West Riding of Yorkshire and Cumberland, in England ; and from Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire, in Scotland. It appears that the Manufacturers' Relief Committee offered to advance £25,000 to assist families to emigrate, on condition that double that sum could be raised otherwise. The deficiency, the Emigration Committee recommend should be raised by Government. This sum of £75,000, they think, will remove and locate the families above.
The Committee at the close of this report say they were about to turn their attention to Ireland, " whose population, " they remark, " unless some other outlet be found for them, must speedily fill up every vacuum created in England and Scotland. " —Monteal Herald

Quebec, Tuesday June 19, 1827
The number of emigrants who arrived on Friday, Saturday and yesterday morning, was 2,159. The total number arrived this Spring is now 8,559. None of that number have come out under government patronage.

The following is a comparative statement of the arrivals last year with those of this on the 19th June, viz:—
Years Vessels Tonnage Settlers
1826 284 77,291 4,245
1827 242 68,181 8,559
It will be seen by the above statement, that the total of arrivals up to the present date, is not so much below last season as was expected. It is probable that the deficiency will not be so great by the first of July. Settlers this season have already approached to within 2000 of the total number arrived last year, and none of them have come out under government patronage. Ship Harrison, from Londonderry and a brigantine, were below the Traverse yesterday. Several other vessels bound up, are reported to be above Bic.

The Weather:
The wind, in this city [Montreal] on Friday evening, blew vert strong from the Northward, but as far as came to our knowledge, caused no damage. At Three Rivers the wind also raged there most dreadfully. Two small houses were blown down. The Waterloo steamboat in going down, broke an iron cable and lost an anchor. She succeeded in saving 7 men from a broken raft. The Laprairie picked up four dead bodies, supposed to be raftsmen. The whole line of coast near Three Rivers is strewed with pieces of rafts and other wrecked materials. At Quebec, the effects have been equally great. The Quebec Mercury of Saturday, has the following paragraph:—
" Last night and this morning, it has blown a severe gale from the westward, which has done some damage amongst the shipping. The Southwold Transport (No. 22,) which was to have sailed this morning, was run foul of by the Ann and Amelia ; China ship ; and sustained some damage in her rigging, but nothing to delay her. She will sail as soon as she can get up her anchor. The schooner Tryal, owned and sailed by Captain Toupin, was dismasted, various other damage was done, the particulars of which we have not been able to learn.
The state of the Thermometer, during the last week taken at 8 in the morning, has been as follows:
48 Mon. : 58 Tues. : 68 Wed. : 68 Fri. : 42 Sat.
It rained violently during the storm last night, and this morning some hail fell. "

Letters were received at the Admiralty from Captain Beechy, of His Majesty's sloop Blossom, dated on the 18th of November [1826], at San Francisco, California, to which port she had returned, after failing to meet with Captain Franklin off Icy Cape. We understand that one of the boats from the Blossom, which was despatched to look out for Captain Franklin, passed some distance round Icy Cape ; but no trace of the captain's party could be found.

In the Greenock Advertiser of the 4th May, appears the following paragraph :—
" We understand that Government have given orders that four regiments shall be sent out to Canada immediately. This circumstance has produced another report, that this step was determined on in consequence of a revolutionary spirit having been displayed by the Canadians. The motive for this increase of force is not known ; but according to the latest accounts, received in the city from Quebec, perfect tranquility prevailed throughout the Lower provinces. "

We have lately received from James Clarke Buchanan, Esq., His Britannic Majesty's Vice Consul at New York, Agent to the Canada Company, some information respecting that Co. and its operations—the whole of which with the observations necessarily arising therefrom we shall taken an early opportunity of laying before our readers. In the meantime we are enabled to say " that the propects of the Company are very flattering.— At New York, and diverse parts of the United States, applications are daily made to the Companys' Agents there, by persons desirous of going up to Guelph. " Of British Emigrants who had previously settled in the United States, but who are desirous of returning to their old allegiances, the names of 80 have already been enrolled— Settlers of this description we should consider the most desirable, and it affords a gratifying proof, that notwithstanding the pretended superiority of the American institutions & manners over our own, there are some who give the preference to a British Colony with whatever disadvantages it may labour. Most of these people have wives and families. About 1300 emigrants had lately embarked at Liverpool for the United States, most of whom it was expected would find their way to the Companys' establishments.
" The great object of the Company being to lay open their lands to actual settlers, no encouragement is intended to be given to speculators, while the utmost liberality will be shewn to sober and industrious men with families, and the lands will be sold to them on terms such as they cannot elsewhere obtain. " —For the instruction of the latter class of persons, and that every facility may be afforded them for prosecuting their route the following directions are distributed by the Companys' Agents in the States.

Robert Marshall, of the brig Alexander, was for the same offence, fined five shillings and costs.

On Tuesday last, a beautiful barge, called the Hylas, capable of carrying 2,000 barrels of flour, was launched from Mr. Johnson's ship-yard. She belongs to the proprietors of the Steam-boat Hercules, and was built expressly to carry freight and to be towed by that boat.

....Saturday, Thomas O'Brien, Patrick Harding, and Patrick Leary, for Whiteboyism, were executed in front of the gaol, Limerick. The unfortunate culprits were turned off without expressing any declaration of their guilt or innocence to the large crowd before them. Before the drop fell, Thomas O'Brien fainted from excessive weakness and remained half suspended, when the platform gave way — his feet, at this moment, clung to the cross-beam, and to relieve him from the agony of such a situation, a soldier extricated the feet, and he swung then with his fellows ; but the sad accident evidently prolonged his mortal sufferings, and his body was painfully convulsed.— Limerick Chronicle
from Wikipedia :— The Whiteboys were a secret Irish agrarian organization in 18th Century Ireland which used violent tactics to defend tenant farmer land rights for subsistence farming. Their name derives from the white smocks the members wore in their nightly raids. . . . . Over time, Whiteboyism became a general term for rural violence connected to secret societies. . . . .

The deficiency in the number of vessels this season (19) is not as much as was expected. Settlers have more than doubled this year and will no doubt continue so during the season.

Limerick, May 9.— The Martin sailed this morning for Quebec with 115 emigrants. The vessel was followed until out of sight with the loudest lamentations from numerous relatives and friends. Emigration from Ireland to America, through Waterford, continued to an extent quite unprecedented. The Bolivar sailed from that port on Thursday for Halifax with 350 passengers.

We understand that a petition to the House of Commons, signed by 2,310 heads of families in Manchester, and praying to be sent out to the British Colonies, was last week forwarded to Mr. Wilmot Horton, who has undertaken to present same, and to support to prayer of the petition.— London paper

Emigration is almost daily taking place from the West Riding of Yorkshire ; it is calculated that 1,300 emigrants have quitted the shores of their native country at Liverpool during the last month.— Leeds Mercury

Effects of Moonlight on the Eyes.
The effect of the moonlight on the eyes in Egypt is singularly injurious ; the natives tell you, as I found afterwards they also did in Arabia, to cover your eyes when you sleep in the open air. The moon in Egypt strikes and affects the sight, when you sleep exposed to it, much more than the sun ; a fact of which I had very unpleasant proof one night, and took care to guard against it afterwards ; indeed, the sight of a person who should sleep with his face exposed at night would soon be utterly impaired or destroyed.— Caræ's Letters from the East

The Esther, a brig of about 200 tons, built for A.C. Freer & Co. was safely launched this morning from Mr. Wright's ship-yard, Sillery Cove. She is considered one of the finest vessels ever built in Canada, and does great credit to Mr. Jeffery, the builder.

The annulment of the marriage of E.G. Wakefield to Miss Turner, was before the House of Lords, on the 29th. Miss T. was examined and gave her evidence in a distinct and unembarrassed manner. Other witnesses were examined, when Mr. Wakefield addressed the house and requested a postponement on the ground that he was not prepared, which was not granted and the evidence was ordered to be printed, and the bill was committed for the next day.

It is confidently stated that His Majesty has written a letter to the Duke of Wellington requesting him to resume the command of the army, which however, his Grace has declined.

From the English papers to May 31st:
It is said that the Wakefields, in addition to the punishment which they are sentanced to undertake in their persons, have already suffered pretty severely in their pockets—their unsuccessful enterprise and its consequences having cost them upwards of £6,000. The expense incurred by Mr. Turner has, it is understood, considerably exceeded that amount. Happily, the ample fortune possessed by this gentleman, render any pecuniary loss which he may attain, the least among the injuries inflicted on him by the affair which has excited so much indignation.
Edward Gibbon Wakefield, born 20 March 1796 in 1816 he eloped with Eliza Susan Pattle, a 16-year-old ward in chancery and heiress to a Canton merchant; she bore him two children before her death in 1820. Wakefield was left with the interest from a trust fund of £70,000.
From 1820 to 1825 Wakefield was a member of the British legation at Paris. Seeking further means so as to secure a seat in the House of Commons, Wakefield in 1826 abducted 15-year-old Ellen Turner, daughter of a Cheshire silk manufacturer, William Turner, and persuaded her to marry him. The marriage was not consummated, and Wakefield, along with his brother William Hayward, his accomplice, was tried amid considerable publicity. He was sentenced to three years imprisonment from May 1827.

Emigration from the Isle of Man.—
We have seen a letter from a gentleman resident at Woburne, near Douglass, in which the writer says, it is within his own knowledge that not less than 700 souls in and near that part of the Island, have within a short period, sold and departed for Liverpool, with the intention of emigrating to the banks of the Ohio— They are of the agricultural class.— Liverpool Advertiser, May 26

Ogdensburgh, (St. Lawrence,) June 26.
Novel Emigration.— The unprecedented increase of Red Squirrels on the borders of the river in this vicinity, and their unseemly location in almost every wood-yard in this village, within a few weeks, have excited no little curiousity. The mystery, however, has within a few days been fully disclosed ; and it is now ascertained from occular demonstration, that these animals, from having been dissatisfied with the administration of the Government of His Majesty's Colony of Upper Canada—the hopeless prospect of their ever attaining the privileges of citizenship under the recent Alien Law of that Province—or front some other cause—are daily crossing the river St. Lawrence by tens, fifties, and hundreds—and fixing their habitations in every vacant nook and corner within our own territory. We are informed that they may be seen landing a short distance above and below this village, almost evey hour in the day ; and the woods, as we have ourselves observed, along the bank of the river, are literally thronged with these quiet and heretofore loyal subjects of his Majesty.
Potsdam,(St. Lawrence,) June 27.
Squirrels.—These infesters of our soil are pouring in upon us like the wild locusts of Egypt, and are almost as numerous. Nearly two hundred have been killed by boys, with clubs and stones, in the precints of our village, within one week. They are unusually tame, and appear to be almost in a state of starvation. They do not hesitate to come into cellars, and commit depredations upon whatever they can find, and one even ventured into our office, but as he found types rather hard food he immediately retired. What causes the unusual number and stir among the squirrels this season, we are unable to say, unless it is the scarcity of nuts, which consequently drives them from their holes to seek for food.
The CANADA, British Steam Packet, Captain Hugh Richardson, leaves Niagara daily for York at 7 o'clock in the morning, and starts from York for Niagara every day at 2 o'clock in the afternoon.

Wonderful Escape:
On Saturday last, just as the Canada was proceeding from Niagara to York, A. Heron Esq. junior, Editor of the Gleaner, undertook to put Captain Mundy of the Wood duck on board. The skiff in which they had embarked coming in contact with the bow of the steam-boat, upset, and both were drawn under the Canada ! The wheels were stopt— the life boats lowered and about a minute and a half after the upset, Captain Mundy rose apparently much exhausted. Captain Richardson darted off in the Jolly Boat, and recued him from his perilous situation.
After a fruitless search of some minutes without any propect of the enlightened editor making his appearance, the boat proceeded— a moan was heard issuing from the larboard wheelhouse. The wheels were again stopt— the jolly boat lowered ; and, to the great astonishment of all on board, our brother editor was found clinging to the axle-tree !— he sustained no injury !— Observer

Shipping Intelligence:
The Harmony, Young, from Leith for Quebec, run on a rock in beating into Stornaway, 1st June, but was expected to be got off.

Captain Crow, of the Blackiston, from Topsham, was drowned on the 2nd July, in long. 25 W.

Limerick, June 6th.— The Pacific, Brown, of this port, out from Cork since the 22nd ult. with passengers for Quebec, was forced to put into the Shannon on Monday, in partial distress, having encountered very severe weather, and carried away her maintopmast, in a violent sqall on the 30th May.
Cork, June 7th.— Agenora, Evans, for Quebec. The Romney had not arrived on the morning of the 7th. The Pacific, Brown, for Cork and Liverpool, bound to Quebec, put into Stornaway, in consequence of a conspiracy amongst the passengers.

The Postmaster at Stoney Stratford, last week, being awoke by the guard of the mail, actually threw out his small clothes instead of the bag, which was not perceived by the guard, and they safely arrived at Lombard-street ere the mistake was discovered.

On Thursday evening last, the town of Harnet was thrown into a state of considerable confusion by an affair betwixt a gentleman named " Smith , " and a father of Miss H. D. which lasted nearly one hour. It appears that the lady had been seduced from her home, and was then on the road to " Gretna Green, " with our enterprising son of Neptune, when being overtaken by the indignant father, while partaking of some refreshment at the " Travellers' Inn, " a fight ensued, " not with sword or pistol, " but with the " gift of nature, " . . . " fists . " Both " peeled " and an admirable " set-to " it was. Blows were repaid with blows. Claret flowed profusely ; both proved " high game, " and afforded a real treat to our " Fancy. " At length Dad received a tremendous hit on his " cannister, " which felled him to the ground. Time was called, but he was insensible, and our hero, accompanied by the " undutiful charmer, " hove off, amidst the tumultous acclamations of the surrounding crowd, who were afterwards quickly dispersed by the civil authorities.
