Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1828

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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1828.

Shipping Intelligence.—
A schooner was despatched from Quebec to the Golconda from London, ashore on Green Island. She is full of water and will probably be a total wreck. The Golconda was a very fine ship, of upwards of 600 tons, launched this spring by J.S. Campbell, Esquire, Wolfe's Cove.
The Port Spain from Jamaica, with rum and pimento, to J.S. Shaw, is ashore on her beam-ends on the Island of Orleans. The steam-boat Waterloo went down to her yesterday. It is thought she will be a total wreck.
Forty-one vessels have arrived since Friday last ; of these, 26 are on the return voyage. A number of square rigged are in the river bound up ; among them are the Cicero, Dominica, Cybele, Hibernia, Erie, Lorenzo, Tottenham, Mary Ann and Sprightly.
The Bonito and Emerald, from London, have arrived at Riviére du Loup, and are to load there.
Upwards of 50 more vessels are expected this fall. The present arrivals exceed the total of last year by 16.

We have received several communications from correspondents, complaining of the variation in the time kept by the public clocks of this city, thereby causing much inconvenience and injury from the departure of steamboats, stages, mails, and the closing of public offices. This variation we cannot account for ; it certainly seems ridiculous that a variation of sometimes half an hour should be found to exist between clocks scarcely 100 yards from each other, and the blame or neglect to whomsoever attributable, merits public notice.

The Aurora Borealis displayed itself last evening about 8 o'clock, with more than common brilliancy. A circle of light shot over from east to west, in the highest part apparently about 20 degrees above the horizon in the north. The space beneath was of a dusky leaden colour, through which the stars glistened, and across the waves of light were now and then seen moving towards the west. In once case a pillar of light of a crimson tinge appeared to shoot up as high as 50 or 60 degrees above the horizon.— New York Journal of Commerce, Sept 30

We regret to learn that William H. Merritt Esquire [arrived at New York Sept. 26 in the ship Napolean, from Liverpool], the active and successful agent for the Welland Canal Company, on his return to St. Catherines, his place of residence, from New York, where he lately arrived, met with a serious accident near Palmyra in the State of New York. The stage in which Mr. M. was proceeding was upset, and Mr. Merritt unfortunately had his leg badly fractured. His family have been sent for, from St. Catherines.

This morning a most extraordinary darkness overspread this city, which to many portended some dreadful convulsion of nature. The sky appeared of a dismal saffron hue, similar to what it assumed during the dark day in November 1819. The darkness for a short space was so great, that lights had to be employed in the Court House and other public offices. It has since nearly cleared off, and the sky now presents the usual indications of a dull rainy day in October.

We are happy to learn that the arrangements for building a new steam boat on the Ottawa River are nearly finished. As far as they have hitherto been known, they are in substance, that the boat is to be the property of a joint stock company, and is to be built this winter by Messrs. John Molson & sons. The boat is to be 200 tons, with a 56 horse engine, to work as of 60. The St. Lawrence Steam Boat Company furnish the engine of the Steam-boat Quebec, for which they are allowed 40 shares of stock. New boilers are to be put to the engine and the whole to be thoroughly repaired. It is expected that the boat will be ready by the opening of the navigation, and that she will be enabled to make the passage from Grenville to Bytown in seven hours.

St. John, N.B., September 26.—
This evening a splendid Ball, will be given at the Masonic Hall, by the Gentlemen of this City, in honour of Lady Douglas ; her Ladyship together with her family being about to depart for Britain. His Excellency remains until the termination of the next sittling of the House of Assembly, in order it is thought to bring to maturity, many excellent schemes for the further improvement of the Province.— British Colonist
..........Lady Douglas and daughters [Miss & Miss Helen], arrived at this place, on Sunday evening last by the Steam-boat St. John, from St. Andrews.— It gives us much pleasure to state that the health of her ladyship has been re-established.— We understand that, in consequence of His Excelleny's intention of leaving the Province within a short period, arrangements have been made for Lady Douglas and her daughters' leaving this Country for Great Britain [Glasgow], by the Allan Gilmour now loading in this Port.— Every precaution, we understand, is taking, to load the vessel in such a way as to render her as safe and commodious as possible for the conveyance of these distinguished passengers.

The emigrants from South America, who were landed here lately in circumstances of extreme destitution, have excited much commisseration and active efforts for their relief. The Corporaton of the City have voted £50 for that purpose, the inhabitants generally have been liberal in hteir subscriptions, and it is said that His Excellency Sir Howard Douglas has promised to give from the King's Casual Revenue, double the sum that may be contributed by the public. — Donations of old clothes will be thankfully received, and families may expect to be called upon for such articles of that description as they can conveniently spare.
The more able-bodied of the single men are usefully employed on the Marsh Road, and it is to be hoped that the proceeds of the allowances which were brought to the hammer on Saturday, together with the liberla donations otherwise obtained for them, will enable them to settle themselves comfortably in the Country around us, or in some other quarters, before the rigors of winter set in.—Observer

Much of the credit is due to the Rev'd. Mr. Carroll, for the attention which he has paid to these emigrants, (from Rio de Janeiro,) and to the pains which he has taken to subdue that spirit of insubordination which is naturally excited by such a multitude of diversified characters, arriving at one time, almost destitute, in a strange country.— Courier

In the Columbia, sailed from New York for London, 2nd instant, the Rev'd. John West and Captain Hayne of the English Army.
Among the passengers in the George Canning, which sailed from New York for Liverpool on the 8th instant, were Samuel Gerrard Esq., Mrs. Gerrard, Miss Gerrard, Richard Gerrard Esq., Joseph Shuter Esq., amd Mr. Leslie of Montreal ; Mr. Whyte and Mr Grant of Canada ; Mr. Chrysler of Niagara, U.C. and Captains Sheriff and Yates of the Royal Navy.
Captain Ogden Creighton 31, formerly of the 70th Regiment, lately appointed to 81st Regiment, stationed at New Brunswick, came passenger in the Birmingham, 8th packet ship from Liverpool, on October 11th..

Major General Sir John Colborne 48, K.C.B. the successor of His Excellency Sir Perregrine Maitland in the Government of Upper Canada, arrived at New York on October 8th in the packet ship Corinthian, from London. His Excellency is accompanied by Lady Elizabeth (Yonge) Colborne 28 [b. 1790 !], [& her sister, the lady Miss Jane Yonge 24 [b. 1796 !], his family of four [sic] daughters [Elizabeth 8 ; Cordelia Ann 4(?) ; Jane 3] and four [sic] sons [James 12 ; Francis 10 ; Edmund 6 ; Graham M. 5(?) ; John 2] , and eight servants [Richard Northcoat 30 ; Richard Crispan 28 ; Phillip Leabar 40 ; Ann Taylor 39 ; Mary Chub 45 ; Mary Lavers 28 ; Susan Hinckson 21 ; Jane Laphthom 23], and they were to proceed to York by the way of the Western Canal.

— On Monday, the 10th of November, the new Governor, Sir John Colborne, is at the Falls, making explorations there, while the steamer Canada is taking the luggage on board at Lewiston, preparatory to the passage over to York. The Niagara Gleaner, quoted in the Loyalist, says:- "On Monday last His Excellency Sir John Colborne paid a visit to the Falls. His own elegant carriage, drawn by four spirited horses, furnished by Mr. Chrysler, carried his Excellency's lady, her sister Miss Yonge, and five children. His Excellency went on horseback, accompanied by Capt. Phillpotts, of the Royal Engineers. In the meantime the steamer Canada went to Lewiston, took in His Excellency's luggage, and was ready to receive His Excellency and family at an early hour on Tuesday morning.. . ." —

The Reverend John Yonge, squire of Puslinch and rector of Newton Ferrers, was head of a long-established Devonshire family of landed gentry, the Yonges of Puslinch. The family intermarried closely with that of Sir John Colborne (1778-1863), Governor-in-Chief of Canada.
In 1813 John Yonge married Colborne's half sister Alethea Henrietta Bargus (1789-1844) and in the following year Colborne married Yonge's sister, Elizabeth Yonge (1790-1872). Colborne's sister Cordelia Anne Colborne (1775-1856) was already the wife of Yonge's first cousin, the Reverend Duke Yonge (d. 1836), Vicar of Antony in Cornwall, whose brother, Captain William Crawley Yonge (1795-1854), later married Colborne's step sister, Frances Mary Bargus (d. 1868). The well-known Victorian novelist, Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823-1901), was a child of this last marriage.
Sir George Yonge, Bart. (1731-1812), after whom Simcoe had named Yonge Street, belonged to another branch of the same family.

A most atrocious act of piracy has been committed on board a brig from Liverpool, which was captured, and the crew and her passengers (among them were a lady and some children) all supposed to have been murdered. Of the vessel the St. Christopher Gazette of Aug. 29, gives the following information on the authority of Lieutenant Colonel Harper, who has been sent by to Governor to St. Eustatias to make enquiries. The name on her stern is Carabobo of Liverpool. She was commanded by Capt. Cook, and the clothes of ladies and children were found on board. She was left by the pirates at Saba and brought to St. Eustatias to have her cargo disposed of as prize goods, a part of which were landed.
. . .later . . .
The pirate which captured the English brig Carabobo, of Liverpool, and murdered the greater part of the crew, was taken by H.M. Ship Victor, at St. Eustatias. The pirate had been fitted at Saint Barta.

On his arrival at Black Rock, he was conveyed in a boat down the Niagara and up the Welland River as far as the Deep Cut, from whence he was removed in a litter to his residence at St. Catherines, escorted by a great number of the respectable inhabitants of the neighbourhood. At St. Catherines he was received with every demonstration of gratitude and respect and a brilliant illumination took place in honour of his arrival.

An individual of dark complexion, with much hair under the chin, and dressed in a blue frock coat, light striped waistcoat, dark trowsers, and a fashionable hat, went on board a vessel in port, a few days ago, and in the absence of the Captain, demanded and received from the cabin boy, five shillings, pretending that he came on part of the Captain. The public are cautioned against such a swindler.

The citizens of Quebec intend petitioning the Legislature at their next Session for a pecuniary aid, for the purpose of improving the principal roads leading to that city, according to the system of McAdam, for the space of nine miles. We would recommend to our fellow-citizens to adopt a similar proceeding, which, is successful, would be productive of more general advantage than any result of private applications. For years past the principal roads in the vicinity of Montreal have been in such a state as to render travelling, if not altogether impossible, at least very tedious expensive and unsafe, so that in wet weather our markets are but very poorly supplied.
This is John Loudon McAdam (1756-1836), who had surmised that the key to rapid vehicle transit was the preservation of the road bed of natural soil in a dry state by making the surface layer watertight. By 1830, tar and asphalt were used to seal McAdam's roads. When mixed with sand and stones, the mixture came to be known as tarmac. . Macadamized roads.

Irish Emigrants.
Of the Irish emigrants who went out to Brazil a year or two ago 1,700 have just returned. Only 156 are content to remain. Nearly one third of the 13,000 who left Ireland have perished.

The report mentioned in our paper of the 27th ultimo, of the Young Samuel being driven up the St. Charles during the late severe gale, turns out to be incorrect. That vessel has not yet been heard of.
Bark Exmouth, Hart, hence for Dublin, is ashore near Crane Island, and it is feared will be a total wreck.

Accounts from below, as far as the Traverse, state that there is a good deal of ice along the shore, but a free channel the whole way.
Dryad, Swinburn, hence for Portsmouth, has put into Miramichi to repair damages sustained in a gale of Anticosti.
The Superb, Cain, for Bristol, is reported by a passenger from St. Ann's, to have been ashore on Goose Island on Sunday.

We are sorry to state that intelligence has just been received of the loss of three vessels, Montmorency, Hope and Amity, near Father Point, in the heavy gale, 23rd ult. The Montmorency is a total loss, her Carpenter drowned and one boy missing. — The Amity has saved some of her sails. Of the situation of the Hope, little is known, except that she is a wreck. The crew of the above vessels are on their way up to Quebec.

Among the passengers by the Pacific, 1st December packet ship from New York for Liverpool, were Thomas Cringan Esq., of Quebec ; William Smith and John Jamieson, Esquires, of Montreal, and Lieut. Goldie, 66th Regiment.

Four Seamen from the Montmorency, for London, and Amity, for Bristol, arrived at Quebec on Wednesday. The Montmorenci drove ashore 12 miles below Little Metis, on Sunday morning, 23rd ult. and has gone to pieces. Her carpenter was not drowned as previously stated, but frozen to death on the road up, about five miles from where the ship struck. The boy missing is supposed to have met a similar fate. The Amity was wrecked at Grand Metis at three o'clock in the afternoon of Sunday the 23rd, all hands were saved and some of her sails. These men did not see the Hope, but were told by the pilot's apprentice, that a brig of that name was wrecked with 10 hands at Cape Chatt. The Montmorency's letter bag is on her way up.
Captain Davy has returned from the Superb ; that vessel has been put into winter-quarters at Goose Island it having found impossible to get to sea. There is a good deal of floating ice.

The Wallsend sailed from Quebec in company with 16 sail of other square-rigged vessels for different ports in Great Britain, and kept company until the 13th and 14th, when she experienced a very severe gale, in which she lost her deck load, jolly boat, principal parts of her bulwarks, water and firewood and sprung a leak ; on the following day only six sail were to be seen, all in a disabled state, one, supposed to be the barque Adamant, of London, a complete wreck and water logged, with only two men on deck, drifting towards the Bird Islands, to which they were unable to render any assistance, owing to a heavy sea and their own ship having 9 feet of water in her hold — saw a brig bear down and lay to under her lee, which Captain W. thinks would be able to take men off when the sea subsided ; on the 15th bore away for Sydney, in company with the Kelsick Wood, also leaky, but being unable to fetch it on the 16th, bore away for Halifax, and parted company off Cape Canso.

Halifax, November 26th.—
