Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1832

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, Quebec Mercury QM, and the Quebec Gazette CG.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1832.

February 27th - MG NEW EMIGRANT BILL
  From the Quebec Mercury
  The Emigrant Tax Bill, in conformity to the despatch from the Minister of the Colonial Department, has passed through both Houses of the Legislature. It imposes a tax of 5 shillings currency a head on each adult passenger or emigrant coming to Canada, from any port in the United Kingdom ; two children under fourteen years of age and three under seven years of age, reckon as a grown person, children under twelve months do not reckon as passengers. The Bill has excited an extraordinary sensation in the mercantile body, who regard it as destructive of the shipping interest, and as the sure means of turning the route of Emigrants, even those whose ultimate destination is Canada, to New York, where a Company is generally said to be forming for the purpose of conveying Emigrants from the United Kingdom to that port, and forwarding them thence to Canada, at a lower rate than they can obtain passage to Quebec, and be forwarded to the Montreal District and to Upper Canada, by the St. Lawrence.
The views of these speculators will be materially assisted by the proposed tax, and a large annual expenditure by British subjects, which ought to benefit British ship-owners, will be turned into the pockets of foreigners. The Board of Trade presented a strong Petition to the Legislative Council against the Bill and we understand that a similar Petition, from the same body, will be laid before His Excellency.
The Emigrant population also appear to participate deeply in the feeling against the Bill, and it is evident that the funds it will in the first instance create, (as Emigrants will not be apprized of the existence of such a law in time to change their plans this season, at least not in the early part of it.) will be far more than sufficient for the relief of any probable number of sick and indigent Emigrants which can arrive in one, two, or three seasons. But the chance is, that the law will kill the goose, and the golden eggs be lost for ever, by Emigrants avoiding a British port at which they are taxable commodities.
One class, we know, will rejoice in the result this law must produce. It is that class which views with envy the prosperity attendant on the efforts of the industrious Emigrant and to whose feelings it is wormwood and gall to see the ragged bas de soie [silk stockings], late the subject of their scorn, transformed by the magic wand of severe industry, into the thriving, contented and happy cultivator, the produce of whose farm and dairy, from its superior quality, will always command a better price than the miserable productions of those who will not profit by example. This is the class who look upon Emigrants as foreign invaders of the soil, and who, instead of emulating their example, would throw every obstacle in the way, which might prevent a single Emigrant from the United Kingdom, be he possessed of capital or a pauper, be he Protestant or Catholic, from setting a foot in Lower Canada. In Upper Canada, the value of of the Emigrant population is better understood and the rapidly augmenting population of that thriving Province may, when it is too late, teach the narrow minded exclusives of Lower Canada, that an Emigrant population established within its limits, and having common views and interests with themselves, is less dangerous to their rights and properties, than an overwhelming population of the same description inhabiting another Province, and that Province requiring free and unobstructed egress and ingress to and from the ocean, with some other points, in which her interests and those of Lower Canada do not, perhaps, on all respects, exactly tally.
  We copy the following from the New York Mercantile Advertiser,
to which we are indebted for a former comprehensive article on this subject.
  " Rumours exist that the cholera is in Liverpool, but they are not authenticated. Gore of the 16th Feb. says —" The most conflicting rumours were in town yesterday respecting this fearful visitant to our shores. From London the disease was said to have travelled rapidly to Liverpool, and in Cable street a victim was rumoured on the point of death, at six o'clock last evening. We have made every inquiry, and find that no cause as yet exists for alarm ; the cholera is not amongst us, and although we would be far from withdrawing the public mind from the consideration of a dreaded and approaching evil, still we must depreciate those morbid sensations which would fright the tale from its propriety by proclaiming that which is not, and thus, at this moment of excitement, producing consequences which a commercial country should so justly fear.
By the Glasgow Chronicle of the 13th Feb. the latest received, we learn that the following cases of cholera had occurred in that city. About fourteen days before, a case was reported in Anderson Walk and one in Barrack street, and since then, a case in Camlachie ; one in Tradeston, and one in Mill Road street ; one in McAlpine street ; one in Bishop street, Anderston (a woman who had attended on the preceding case.) two cases in the Goose Dubbs ; two in the Bridgegate, all of which terminated fatally. The cholera has also appeared in Partick, (a small village two miles west of Glasgow) At Kelvindock, three miles N.W. on the Canal and Kelvin, there have been four cases and two deaths ; and at Paisley, a large manufacturing town seven miles W. of Glasgow.
On the cases in Glasgow only two have been reported to the Board of Health. It seems that the Editor of the Chronicle, and the Lord Provost, have been firing "paper bullets" in consequence of the former having published some cases, as cholera, which the Board of Health would not recognize as such.
The Chronicle says — Since our last no new cases of cholera has occurred at Kirkintilloch, and the two remaining cases, John Ronald and Elizabeth Russell, are now both convalescent. From the energetic measures adopted by the Board of Health, every house in which the infection appeared being regularly fumigated, and new clothing being provided for the convalescent, and those most exposed to the infection — there is reason to hope that the disease may have expended itself in that quarter. Every precaution continues to be taken by the inhabitants, by avoiding communication with infected houses, and supplying them with warm clothing.
At Coatbridge the disease has again unfortunately broken out. Yesterday there were three cases, and one death. Its introduction there is attributed by the people of Hillhead, to a young woman, who had stopped there some days on her way to Coatbridge, in one of the infected houses.
We publish the names of the streets in Glasgow, where the cases of cholera had occurred, for our numerous Scotch readers have expressed much anxiety to be informed on this point.
April 12th - MG The Montreal Emigrant Society will receive Tenders until Monday, the 7th May next, from persons willing to Contract for the Transport of such Emigrants as may be forwarded by the Society, during the ensuing Season, by Steamboat or Batteaux from Montreal to Laprairie, Chateauguay, Cascades, Cornwall, Prescott, Brockville, Kingston, Carrying Place, Bay of Quinte, York, Carillon, and Bytown, respectively. Two Children under fourteen, or Three Children under seven to be reckoned as one Passenger, and all infants, under twelve months, to be taken gratis.
Will be received at the same time Tenders for such Cartage as may be required on Inland Routes for the Transportation of Emigrants and their Baggage. The Tenders to state the price per cwt. and per mile for one or two horses, with drivers and suitable vehicles for such conveyance.
Tenders will be received for part or whole of the above
For particulars, application to be made at the Secretary's Office, Brick Buildings, St. Lawrence Hill.

R. Secretary, M.E.S.
Montreal, April 2, 1832
  We learn from a passenger by the Upper Canada stage, on Saturday, that the stage crossed that day on the ice from the Cascades to Point Claire, over Isle Perrault ; the ice was quite good on the first part of the crossing, but between the Island and Point Claire, the horses broke through.
The channel in Lake St. Francis is free from ice, but on Saturday it was still firm in the larger portion of the lake. In the lower lake, St. Louis, it is in most parts still strong, but from the mouth of the Chateauguay river, and downwards, it has broken away.
The Dalhousie steamer, purchased lately by H. Dickinson, Esq., was to descend this day from Prescott to Cornwall. This boat will commence plying on Lake St. Francis as soon as the ice will permit. The Neptune, also belonging to the Upper Canada stage and steamboat line, is likewise ready, and will join the line, when the active season for business and travelling arrives.
The new boat called Swan, built at Hawkesbury last fall, waits only for the breaking up of the ice in Lake St. Louis, to commence operations ; the engines which have been fitted into her during the winter, on being lately set in motion, were found to work in the most satisfactory manner.

May 5th - QM The first vessels from sea arrived at 10 last night; they were the Intrepid from Hull on the 25th March, and the Canada from Greenock, on the 28th of the same month. Neither vessel brought to at Grosse Isle, and they are both ordered back to the quarantine ground, as an example, to prevent others violating the law in the same manner. These vessels bring no news.
  It affords us much pleasure, in perusing the latest papers received from the mother country, to perceive the numerous notices which are taken of the very extensive emigration which will take place during this season in Quebec. We copy a few items, and can merely say, that let them follow each other like wave after wave, they will be received with a welcome by those who are desirous of seeing this Province colonized by the children of old England.
  An order in Council was issued on 28th March, obliging all vessels from the United Kingdom for the United States or British America, with fifty persons on board, including the Master and Crew, to be provided with a regularly educated Surgeon from London, Edinburgh, Glasgow or Dublin, and also with a medicine chest such as is generally made use of on board of His Majesty's Ships.
  Preparations are now making in all parts of Great Britain for Emigration to America.
Two fine ships, the Marmion and the Caroline, of 500 tons burden each, sailed on Sunday last from the London Docks for Quebec, with above 200 emigrants on board each vessel, proceeding to Upper Canada ; there were many families consisting of from ten to fourteen individuals, who appeared, from their smiling and contended faces, to have left few objects to regret behind them. We understand that these are very different class of persons to those who, in former years, have emigrated to our American colonies, most of them being respectable farmers and tradesmen. The vessels are engaged to return to London for the purpose of carrying out other settlers whose passage is already engaged.
The rage for emigrating to Canada and New South Wales, is daily increasing, particularly to the former ; nearly 100 ships of the first class are now fitting out in the Docks of London, to carry passengers and goods to those Colonies. — Bell's Messenger
  Thursday afternoon, forty-three individuals, men, women and children, natives of this town and neighbourhood, embarked on board a barge at Caversham Bridge, for Liverpool, to take their passage for New York.
Mr. Mansford Nott informs us that such vast numbers are flocking to Liverpool, to embark for America, that ships are all full for the next voyage.
Emigrants should manage to reach Liverpool at a time they are not likely to be detained. It would be a great charity to form a society in this town, for giving emigrants information. — Reading Mercury
  Frome, March 14. — The parish of Frome has offered fifteen months pay to any poor family, now receiving parish relief, to assist them to emigrate to Upper Canada, provided the whole sum does not exceed £600. This amounts to double the sum granted last year, and will probably be increased by private subscriptions, and in compliance with the liberal offer from the parish authorities of that town, no less than 140 persons belonging to Frome are about to emigrate to Upper Canada ; they consist of eighteen families and eleven single individuals ; it is expected they will leave this place for Bristol on or about the 21st instant. A great number of families are anxious to follow them from the same parish, but it has been found impossible to provide sufficient funds. About seventy persons emigrated last year from the adjoining parish of Cotsley, and nearly the same number from Bradley, in this county. Nothing of the kind is more striking than the boldness and confidence of success with which these poor persons set out for such remote parts of the world. About ninety persons have quitted Frome for America within the last year, from whom letters have been continually received, inviting their friends and relations to follow them, many of which letters are now published in a cheap form, and certified by the clergy, churchwardens, overseers, and four other gentlemen of Frome, as being faithfully copied from the originals, with the exceptions of occasional corrections of spelling, and some omissions of private matter. Previously to the departure of the poor persons, the benevolent ladies and gentlemen of Frome, (who are ever willing, both with hand and purse, to assist their poorer brethren) will provide them with clothes, bedding, tools, and almost numberless articles, not accepting religious books, without regard to expense. Every emigrant has his separate bag and parcel, well filled and carefully packed.
One hundred and fifty-six persons have left Frome on their way to Bristol, to embark for Canada. The greater portion of these emigrants leave the country in consequence of the entreaties of their friends who have gone before them and prospered. — Bath Chronicle
  East Lothian. — The emigration of the tenantry to America still goes on steadily. It is difficult to say where it will stop. Every one who goes away renders it more probable that another will follow him. The great bar to emigration is the dislike to go to a country where one is a stranger. But now America is to the East Lothian farmer not only a land of promise, but a land filled with friends and acquaintances ; and in leaving his native land to cross the Atlantic, he feels he is about to join those with whom his earliest associations are connected. By remaining at home, he will soon be surrounded with strange faces ; and he is forced to quit his country, and his farm, that he may keep up his intimacy with those whom he esteems, and not be compelled, in the evening of his days, to form new connections.
There are this year a greater number of people leaving this part of the country for America than we ever before remember. Besides the six vessels at present ready in Leith, which we believe are all full of passengers and goods, carrying out in all about 500 passengers, there are three or four more to be laid on immediately for the same purpose, and we have on [sic] doubt they will be equally successful. The Diana, Miller, sailed on Tuesday, with about 20 passengers for Halifax. The Triton, McLean, left the harbour on Wednesday for Quebec, with about 60 passengers ; and the Wallington, Young, leaves this day for Quebec and Montreal, with upwards of 100 passengers. There are two other vessels, each with nearly as many passengers, to sail next week, the one for Quebec and Montreal, and the other for New York.
Six vessels are about to sail from Leith for British America with passengers, and three or four other vessels are to be laid on immediately for the same destination.
The mania for emigration rages just now in the country to an unheard of extent. More people have quitted, or intend quitting, Elginshire for America this spring, than during the last ten years. From the small village of Rothesalone no fewer than sixteen intend sailing, in the same vessel, for the western hemisphere.
A number of families have left Methven in order to ship at Dundee for the Canadas ; a considerable number are also to join them from the middle of the Carse of Gowrie. They consist chiefly of ploughmen, wrights, smiths, tailors, and weavers ; most of them have friends out before them. A good number more intend to embark for the same destination, from various parts of the country, in the end of April.
Among the emigrants from Fife, on board a vessel which sailed from Dundee roads, for Quebec, is a woman seventy-six years of age — she goes out, of course, not as "a tiller of ground," but to escape being left friendless, the last of her family, from this country, being in the vessel along with her. She carries out £300 — a considerable sum, considering the small means she had for acquiring it, in going messages for farmers, in the neighbourhood. Another vessel laden with Fife emigrants, sailed from Leven and another from the same port will sail next week. — Fife Herald

  Montreal May 10th :— The steerage passengers by the Intrepid from Hull, reached Montreal by the Hercules steamer from Quebec. They are nearly all young unmarried men, principally from Beverley in Yorkshire. As they are unencumbered with families, (which the Captain refused to take,) and are possessed of some means, they are a very desirable class of emigrant for either province.

Shipping Intelligence:
The Lady Aylmer went down to the Quarantine Station yesterday on a pleasure trip. The Cherub from Greenock, the Canada and the Intrepidwere lying there. The Intrepid returned this morning with the pratique red signal, and is preparing to discharge at Goudie's Wharf.

The Canada came into the Gulf the 20th April — was ten days there in heavy ice — saw the Cherub and Filly fast in it.
The Intrepid also reports having seen a great deal of ice of Cape Ray — saw the following vessels :— Robertson, Cicely, Dryope, Lord John Russel, Broadstairs, Marmion, Town of Ross and another, unknown.

... The Cholera has broken out at Paris, and up to the 28th [March] there had been four deaths. In London it is gradually increasing. The number of deaths was 915 — Grand Total 2305.
The passage of the Law levying a Tax on Emigrants at Quebec was well known in London on the 23rd, in Dublin on the 26th, and at Belfast on the 28th March.
Vice Admiral Sir P. Malcomb has recommended to the Government that the North American packets should proceed in future, no further than Halifax, and that a small schooner should be employed to take the mail thence to Bermuda, by which change, three instead of four packets would suffice for duty.
By an Order in Council of the 27th of March it is decreed that all vessels carrying fifty passengers, including the crew and master, to the British possessions in North America, or to the United States of America, shall carry a surgeon, in order to prevent, as far as possible, the disease called cholera morbus reaching those places. By another Order in Council, all vessels departing from Scotland will be required to do the same ; and the Surgeons who are to continue the whole of the voyage, it states will be required to show certificates of their having passed their examinations at Surgeons' Hall in London, or at Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh or Dublin, or before the Medical Faculty of the University of Glasgow...

Quarantine Anchorage - [Grosse Ile]
We have been much pleased with an examination of the Plan of the Quarantine Ground, drawn by Mr. Bowen, midshipman R.N., from the Survey of Commander Bayfield, and published by order of the House of Assembly. The anchorage is completely sheltered from the W,. N.W., N., and N.E. ; indeed from all winds, owing to the banks at the mouth of the entrance. But by dropping down to Ile Ste. Marguerite, the shelter from the E., S., and S.W. is complete. This harbour as one for ships was unknown before the late Survey.
The whole extent of the harbour is from the west end of Grosse Ile to the east of Ile Ste. Marguerite, about three miles, having the latter Island and Cliff Island on the South, and the former and Ile aux Deux Tétes on the North. It varies in breadth from 400 to 600 yards, rather less than than half the breadth of the St. Lawrence opposite Quebec, the depth is from 7 to 10 fathoms, bottom clay and mud, the best holding bottom. 100 or 150 sail could, we apprehend, lie easily in it.
The quarantine ground, strictly, is between Grosse Ile and Cliff Island a section of Ile Ste. Marguerite separated from it by a narrow channel at low water. It is entered at the west end of the Islands by two channels, the northerly one in 3½ to 4½ fathoms at low water, about 300 yards wide ; the southerly one, (the best,) in 4¼ to 6 fathoms at low water, and about 500 yards wide. The bottom is clay and mud.
About three miles below the quarantine anchorage there is another entrance from the common ship channel, by a passage about 400 yards broad in 6 to 7½ fathoms. The Ile aux Deux Tétes, immediately on entering, forms a most secure harbour against north easters.
Commander Bayfield's Survey has already been instrumental in improving the navigation of our fine river, and, we have no doubt, when his complete Chart is published, that it will still further be very much improved. The readiness which he has at all times shewn to convey the information he possessed, and indeed the zeal he has exhibited to advance the interests of our navigation, while they reflect so much credit upon himself personally, shew also the public and liberal views of the English Admiralty.

Shipping Intelligence:
All the vessels which have arrived were detained by ice more or less long. The Spring was three weeks on this side of Cape Ray, and saw a large number of vessels in the ice with their sails furled. The City of Waterford was six days in the ice. Several vessels have their outside planking completely worn through by the ice. The Ottawa, Rebecca and about 20 others arrived at the Quarantine Station last night. Those not having clean bills will be detained three days we suppose. — Wind strong at N.E.
The Kingfisher and Unicorn have been seen in the Gulph.
The Driope [Dryope], John Welsh, and Great Britain, proceeded from Montreal on Friday night, in tow of the British America.
The Margaret, Burton, which wintered at Three Rivers, has not come down. The Felix Souligny, which wintered at Montreal, was nearly ready for sea on Saturday.
The Artemis suffered damage in the ice, and was obliged to put into Newfoundland to repair.
Bark Cottingham, Short, 1st April from London, was spoken by the Superior on the Green Bank, the 25th ult.
The Sir John Beresford and Irton proceeded for Montreal yesterday early ; and today the Superior, Artemis, Horatio, and British Sovereign. These six vessels, registering 1,694 tons, are to be taken in tow at one time by the John Bull, Steamer.
Liverpool April 1st :— Cleared for Quebec, Sir George Murray, Indus, Brown and Rapid.

New Steamboats:
Two of the new steamboats intended for the trade between this city [Montreal] and Quebec, have been launched during the week. The fine new boat belonging to Mr. James Greenfield, built at Shea & Merritt's yard was safely launched yesterday afternoon, and went off in gallant style. She is called Canadian Eagle. The St. Patrick, belonging to Sir John Caldwell, was also launched a few days ago at Quebec. — Montreal Gazette

Cape Rozier, 23rd May, 1832
Gentleman,— I am sorry to inform you that we had the misfortune of getting on shore here on the evening of the 15th instant, during a thick fog. The ship still holds together, but is a wreck : her bottom is so much broken that part of the coals have washed out on the beach. We succeeded in saving all the lives, but I am sorry to say that a boat has since been lost, with three Canadians and one passenger, whose luggage they were going to save from the wreck. We have saved some part of the cargo, with the ship's sails and some materials ; but I dread that we only saved the passengers to linger a little longer and then die for want of provisions, or perish after being robbed by the natives, who steal from us whatever they can lay their hands on. All our vigilance is almost useless, they plunder nearly as fast as we save, and no provisions can be had even for payment. The passengers number about 130 souls, and are in possession of very little money.

Petworth Emigrants
The Earl of Egremont has sent off to Canada 1,000 paupers at his own expense last week and paid £1,500 into the hands of the Secretary of the Canada Company for their use upon their arrivals. Several of the claimants upon the poor rates of Cheshunt, Herts, parish have expressed their intention to proceed to Canada with their families, consisting in some cases of a wife and three or four children, provided the parish are willing to advance them the necessary sum to enable them to do so. At five pounds per head, about the rate at which emigrants are now taken to the United States, it will cost the parish about eighteen months' advance pay for each family.
Emigration has been very brisk this spring. A good many families from Teviotdale passed through Annan this week for Maryport, intending to sail immediately for America. The parishes of Middlebie and Hoddam [sic], (Dumfriesshire) in our own district, we understand, have furnished not a few adventurers.
About 170 persons in boats &c. have passed along the canal at Maesbury near Oswestry, from different parts of Montgomeryshire, on their way to America.
Friday six families, consisting of thirty-two persons, left Wilmingham for Liverpool, intending to embark for the United States. Six persons also accompanied them from the adjoining village Over. Eleven persons intend to emigrate from Haddenham. [Wilmingham, Over and Haddenham are in Cambridgeshire] The rage of emigration will continue from this city and neighbourhood This week six shoemakers, all pensioners, left here for Canada - Government having previously paid them four years pension in advance ; by accepting this compensation, the pensions entirely cease.— Carlisle Journal.
