Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1829

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note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1829.

note: There seems to be under-reporting by the Montreal Gazette, of the numbers' of settlers and names of cabin passengers on vessels arriving at Quebec for the year 1829, so do not conclude that any such vessel did not carry passengers.

January 19th - MG New York.—
It is now sixty-four days since we have had any advices from Europe. The latest dates received at this port from Liverpool, is the 8th of November, and via Charleston to the 9th. The following packet ships are now due, allowing the last named, the John Jay, a passage of 34 days.
From Liverpool. — ship William Thompson, day of sailing 16th November ; New England, 20th November ; George Canning, 24th November ; Caledonia, 1st December ; London, 5th December ; John Jay, 8th December.
From London. — Robert Edwards, 10th November ; Columbia, 25th November.
From Havre. — Charles Carroll, 15th November ; Montano, 15th November ; Charlemagne, 1st November.— Total 11.
The following packet ships are now on their passages to this port. From Liverpool, William Thompson ; New England ; George Canning ; Caledonia ; London ; John Jay ; Canada ; Napolean ; Florida ; Birmingham — 10. From London, Robert Edwards ; Columbia ; Corinthian, and one other — 4. From Havre, Charles Carroll ; Montano ; Charlemagne ; Henry IV ; France, and Don Quixote — 6. Total 26 packet ships, independant of a great number of transient ships.
The average passage, in the last ten years, of our packet ships from Liverpool to New York is about 38 days ; and from New York to Liverpool, 24. In the months of November, December and January, the average passage of packet ships from Liverpool to New York, has been a little over 42 days. In the same period, of the old line ships, only two passages from Liverpool to New York have been so long as 64, one of 65, one of 70, and one of 74 days.
All the vessels that have recently arrived from Europe have been very long passages. Several vessels have been between 30 and 40 days in getting into Eastern ports after making soundings on the Grand Banks. We should not be surprised if half a dozen packet ships should enter one port together the first fair wind. — New York Daily Advertiser.

  the following is extracted from the long report of the questions posed to and answers made to a Parliamentary Committee, by A.C. Buchanan, "His Majesty's resident Agent for superintending settlers and Emigrants in the Canadas." . . this extract is in regard to the settlement of Lower Canada.

. . . . . . Emigration to Lower Canada has never yet had a fair chance, or that support or protection that naturally leads to favourable results. The French language is certainly a drawback to the stanger on first arrival in this Province. Hitherto few of the new and desirable part of the emigrants find their way into the interior of the Province, and those that do are generally men that have loitered a year or two about Quebec as servants or labourers, and persons connected with rafting timber or shantys, and who are by no means a healthy class to form new settlements. In point of fact the strange settlers on arrival at Quebec, were perfectly adrift without a pilot to guide their steps, or render any authorized disinterested advice, and in many cases they never had the opportunity afforded them of putting their feet on shore — The ship runs to the ballast ground (distant on the south side of the river about two miles from Cul-de-Sac,) and the anchor is hardly let go when a number of steam-boat agents and sailor crimps flock on board, their object it is unneccessary to illustrate . . * . . ; Lower Canada is represented as a mere desert, sure starvation, &c. the credulous stranger believes every word, and while the dialogue is going on, the hatches are opened, baggage hoisted out, and in a few hours the poor emigrant finds himself crammed on the deck of a steam boat on his route to Montreal, expecting that on his arrival there all will be well. When arrived, a similar scene takes place with boatmen from Ogdensburgh, waggoners from St. John, &c. &c. and without time to reflect, and bewildered with the novelty around, the poor fellow is hurried on step by step as long as his money lasts, when not infrequently sickness ends his troubles, and if not after reaching perhaps Ogdensburgh or Kingston in a miserable batteau or Durham boat, and finding his resources nearly exhausted in trying to find verified the disinterested advice received on the route, he struggles into the States truely disgusted and disappointed with his Canadian reception.
This is a true picture, it has occured every year and so long as it is permitted to exist, and aided by the indifference and I may almost say the impossibilty for the stangers finding even the way to obtain a location in Lower Canada, without first expending more time and money than double the value, may we chiefly attribute to a great degree the trifling settlement of Emigrants from the United Kingdom hitherto in this Province, and not from any objection or predetermination to the contrary on their part. . . . . ; The voluntary emigrant on to Quebec is by no means that of paupers, the original destination of a portion of them are generally for the back part of Pennsylvania, Ohio, &c. being the cheapest route, the greater number are industrious, loyal, farming families, possessed of means which would, if properly directed, establish themselves in the country, but from the causes already alluded to, their hard earned gatherings are flitted away without their being permitted to render any lasting advantage to the Province, or they themselves becoming good subjects, thus by a want of arrangement and I fear occasionally over zealous prejudices, are thousands of valuable settlers forced over the lines to enrich and augment rapidly the increasing power of our ambitious neighbours. It is worthy of note that 29,000 settlers arrived at Quebec in the years 1827 and 1828, and I do not believe out of the whole number, 100 families have taken up lands in this Province ; this I should consider is of itself a sufficient proof that something is wrong, that some measure is wanted. — . . . . . .

Remarks by a correspondent of the Herald.
. . * . . This last season I have known of steam-boats meeting the ship off Orleans and in fact entering the passengers before their arrival at Quebec, a little collusion with the Captain easily gets the maintopsail laid aback to deaden the ships' progress, until the emigrants and their baggage are secure ; hence arises in addition to other strong reasons, the absolute necessity of some legislative protection against such abuses as I had the honour to submit on a former occasion, when giving evidence in relation to the proposed Emigrant Hospital.
. . . . The repeated delays and disappointments which emigrants have experienced, soon become the subject of remark among themselves and no doubt is often communicated to their friends in the United Kingdom to the great prejudice of settlement in the country.

April 20th - MG Montreal.—
Our harbour is one more enlivened with the presence of vessels, and the active operations of commerce are not far distant. On Thursday afternoon the steamboat Lady of the Lake came up from her winter quarters at Bout de L'isle, and was soon after followed by the Laprairie. On Saturday the Waterloo, St. Lawrence and New Swiftsure from Sorel made their appearance in rapid succession. The John Molson, Hercules and Chambly have also arrived in port from their winter quarters. The quantity of floating ice is rather unusual and has proved the cause of some damage to paddles of the boats. The Laprairie will ply to Laprairie for a few days until the Edmund Henry undergoes some neccessary repairs. The Lady of the Lake left this for Quebec yesterday morning. Two schooners have also arrived from Boucherville.
The waters will be let into the Lachine Canal this day, being only twelve days later than last year.
April 23rd - MG In our last, in noticing the arrival of the different steam-boats in port, we inadvertently omitted to mention that of the Richelieu, which reached this place on Monday morning.
The Waterloo left this for Quebec on Tuesday morning, and John Molson on the succeeding day. The Laprairie has during the week, made regular trips to Laprairie ; this boat is now owned by the proprietors of the Edmund Henry, which arrived in port this morning, having repaired the serious damage wich she sustained from the New Swiftsure, coming in contact with her, at the time of the ice breaking up at that place.
From the Lachine Canal being now open, several of the forwarding Batteaux and Durham-boats have arrived at the Canal Basin.
The navigation of the Ottawa [River], we understand, is now free, and the first steam-boat will leave Lachine for Point Fortune on Monday next. The boat is the Cascades has not yet commenced plying.
April 27th - MG The Steam Boats on the Ottawa have commenced running this season. The William King arrived at Bytown on her first trip from Grenville, on the 19th instant, being two days earlier than a trip has been performed on this route in any former season. The river was found by her to be perfectly clear of ice.
We understand that this boat has been rendered more comfortable than it formerly was by some judicious alterations in the cabin, which has been fitted up in a very elegant manner. The deck has been covered over to protect steerage passengers from rain, and also from sun. An improvement has also been made in this boat in the placing of her works, so that she now runs considerably faster than she did last season, her first trip upwards having been performed in less than ten hours.
The boat for Point Fotune was expected to leave Lachine this morning at seven.
The Lake Champlain boats have also commenced running. The Franklin arrived at St. John's on Thursday and left for Whitehall on Friday.
The first steam boat from this place (the Lady of the Lake) arrived at Quebec on Monday last, the 29th instant.
April 30th - MG Accounts have been received in Quebec of the loss on Anticosti, during the month of November last, of the brig Hibernian, Captain Pollock, cleared from Quebec the 27th October for Portaferry, and of the bark George Canning, Captain Bayham, cleared the 28th, for Cork. The Captain and three hands of the George Canning were killed by the falling of the main mast, when the vessel first struck, and four more of the seamen subsequently died from the excessive cold. The Captain of the Hibernian has likewise perished through excessive fatigue and cold.

The House of Lords.— At the close of the present Session of Parliament the interior of the House of Lords is to be entirely altered. Side galleries for the accomodation of the Peers themselves are to be erected, not only upon a tasteful, but upon as substantial a scale as the limited space will permit ; and in the front of the House, below the bar, a large gallery is intended to be built, for the admission of strangers. The space under the gallery, where that portion of the public who have the good fortune to procure an order from one of their Lordships are received, will be kept clear for the Members of the House of Commons, on the bringing up of Bills, or when otherwise especially summoned to receive communications for His Majesty.

  London Times, April 20, 1829:

On Saturday last the brigantine George Canning sailed from Greenock, with an association of families, who have agreed to form an establishment on Lake Huron, in Upper Canada, under the direction and upon the lands of Henry Jones, Esq., of Exeter. From the excellence of the soil and the convenience of communication by water, the mildness of the climate, and the short duration of winter, no situation in Canada, hitherto selected, promises better for health and immediate comfort, while the liberal aid and benevolent system of regulations on the part of Mr. Jones, cannot fail to assure every industrious family an earlier arrival at an independent competency than could be hoped for by the unaided and uncombined exertions of insulated settlers. The vessel is fitted up with the greatest attention to the conveniency and comfort of the passengers, who left the harbour in high spirits, and with a fair wind.— Glasgow Chronicle.

Shipping Intelligence.
Nailer and Ariadne sailed from Greenock before Rebecca. No vessels loading to sail after her. Endeavour, with general cargo, was to leave London on the 20th of April.
123 vessels have arrived in port since the opening of the navigation.
The Trio brought up Captain Carr and eleven men of the brig Joseph, wrecked at the Bird Islands. The Joseph sailed from Liverpool for Quebec, 17th April, with general cargo for Montreal, addressed to Mr. Amner — was totally lost with her cargo on the 13th May, by striking a hidden rock at the Bird Islands. All hands saved, but the vessel went down in fifteen minutes after striking.

The New Swiftsure arrived this morning, reports the arrival at Quebec of the Captain of the Horatio from Liverpool, which he had left some miles below.

Port of Montreal,
arrived May 21:
6— brig Economy, Fenwick, from Newcastle
7— brig Mary, Jacobson, from Newcastle

An attempt to commit suicide was this morning made by Captain Fenwick, of the Economy of South Shields, now lying in port, by cutting his throat with a razor. We learn that he has betrayed symptoms of derangement since the entering of the vessel into the Gulf, and that on Saturday evening last he attempted to destroy himself by leaping over board. Since that, a strict watch was left over him, but while this morning one of the sailors turned round to procure some clothing that he had asked for, the Captain cut his throat across the wind pipe with a razor which he had managed to conceal about his person. The razor fortunately did not touch the jugular vein. The unfortunate man has been conveyed to the General Hospital, where hopes are entertained of his recovery.

We observe in a Rochester paper, of the 12th instant, a statement of a robbery, which had been discovered there ; it would appear to be somewhat connected with some individuals in this or the neighbouring Province.
"A trunk was yesterday found broken open behind a fence in Carrol street, containing many letters &c. to various persons in Canada, mostly with the seals broken. Some of them are for Sir James Kempt — others for James Young, Esq., of York U.C., from his uncle, Hugh Cross, of Banff, Scotland, dated 19th January 1829. The name of H.C. Young is on the trunk, and his name is mentioned as the bearer in one of the letters from Mr. Cross to Mr. Y. of York. — No trace of such a person can be found on the Stage registers, or from other inquiries."

At the poor-house in Middlebury, Vermont, lately, George Sparrow, and Englishman, aged about 46. This unfortunate individual was, by his own confession, one of Thistlewood's coadjutors, engaged in what was called the " Cato Street Conspiracy " which was matured in London some twelve years since : and had for its object the murder of the British Ministry. The plot as understood from the public prints of the time, went only to assassinate the Kings' Ministers while at dinner at the Earl of Harrowby's, and thus obtain a reform in the Parliament ; but according to Sparrow's account, other and wide spread mischiefs were contemplated by the conspiritors. Several of the traitors were arrested at a stable in Cato street, (which was their uniform place of meeting.) and executed. — George, with two or three others, narrowly escaped on board of a ship, and reached Quebec. At that place rewards were soon offered for them ; but George saved himself by coming into the States. He has lingered out a miserable life, being much of the time disordered, or stupified by ardent spirits. He was, however, a man of excellent natural powers, possessed a singularly retentive memory and had an almost inexhaustible fund of information.

The process of Emigration in this quarter appears to have commenced with renewed alacrity. The vessels that have left our port lately for North America, have all exhibited on thier decks a numerous compliment of passengers. Amongst them we have observed both males and females of every age, and of various classes of society.— They all seem to evince an eagerness to quit the country of their birth, and, judging from their countenances, we should say that not one in a hundred feels any regret upon that score ; though it is more than probable the observation of the poet " Nescio qua natale solum. " &c. may be verified some few years, perhaps months hence. That some amongst them may have formed a very inadequate notion of a voyage in search of wealth and independence to the northern extremity of the New World is evident from the following anecdote, upon the truth of which our readers may rely :— On Tuesday morning last the Triton sailed from this port for Quebec, with a full share of passengers. The wind was unfavourable for getting down the Humber, and she was consequently beating about for several hours. An old woman, who, on the ship's leaving the harbour, had retired below, in the course of the afternoon suffered her curiosity to get the better of her terrors, and ventured on deck, the first object that attracted her attention was Paul Church, which we may remark, for the enefit of our distant readers, is situated about eight miles down the river. She approached the pilot, and in a very strong East Riding dialect, accosted him with " Pray'ee, honey, is that ' Mericky ?'" " No, not yet mother," was the answer. " Why, bairn," rejoined the old lady, " I whoap it be'ant much further, or me an' my owd man 'il gang back again, for I nivver wur sae sick o'naught i'my whoal life! " —Hull Packet

She went off the stocks in beautiful style, amid the shouts of the crowd who had assembled to witness the launch. The new vessel, which confers great honour on its builder, was named the Minerva. [builder was Mr. Luke Shea]
