Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1823

The following information on arrivals, due to the condition of the papers, has been taken from various sources including the Montreal Gazette, Montreal Herald, and the Canadian Courant & Montreal Advertiser.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible.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 1823.

By the arrival of the Cadmus, Capt. Whitlock, in 48 days from Havre, we are put in possession of Paris advices to the 30th of June.
Invisible Cement.–Isinglass boiled in Spirits of Wine will produce a fine transparent Cement, which will unite broken glass so as to render the fraction almost imperceptible.
Newspapers in Schools.–The Editor of the Windsor Journal, says he received an order a few days since for a supply of his paper to be used in a public school. Many advantages would doubtless, result from this practice, as children generally “seize with avidity a newspaper, and find in its variety sufficient attraction to render study a pleasure instead of an irksome task, performed only through fear of the ferula.” The Editor also well observes, that there will be no objections in point of morality to the newspaper being admitted as a weekly visitor in the family. A judicious master, (and schoolmasters should be of this character,) would select the most appropriate and useful parts of the weekly about....

The fine weather at the close of last week has materially altered the appearance of the country in this District; much of the grain is already fit for harvesting, and the hay has mostly been got in, though, generally speaking, not in a good condition.–Mercury.
St. John’s N.F., July 20.
His Excellency Vice Admiral Sir Charles Hamilton Baronet, Governor, and Commander in Chief in the Island, with his suite, arrived here on Friday morning last, in H.M.S. Ranger, Capt. Fisher, from England.–As soon as the Ranger had anchored, a salute was fired from Fort Townshend, and shortly after from the respective ships in the harbour, who welcomed his Excellency’s return to this place with all the distinction due to his rank.

In the Ranger came passenger Col. Harris, on his way to Halifax.

The ship Canton, Capt. O. Sullivan, arrived at this port on Saturday evening, from Cadiz, whence she sailed on the 10th of July. She brings newspapers and letters to that date inclusive. We have availed ourselves of all the translations which appear in the morning papers. These translations are chiefly interesting, from the view they give us of the activity, spirit, and good feeling which prevail among the besieged Constitutionalists in Cadiz. It affords us a high degree of satisfaction, moreover, to learn, that Cadiz is well provisioned, and that so far, all the precautionary measures of the French Admiral, have had little effect in preventing the arrival of vessels with provisions. Upwards of forty arrivals are mentioned in a single day. The intelligence from without is not important. The accounts of the movements of the several Constitutionalists corps, are so ???, and so confirmed[?], that we must conclude the French have cut off all communications, leaving the government to collect what they can from traders who arrive coastwise....

  Emigration.–The Steam Boats Lady Sherbrooke, and New Swiftsure arrived here last week from Quebec, on board the first there were 287, and in the latter 277 Irish Emigrants, being a part of those for whom passages were provided under the superintendence of Mr. Robinson, as formerly noticed. We understand that another vessel is now on the way from Ireland with a full cargo of settlers, and that many more may be expected in the spring. The measurers taken by Government are well calculated to ensure success to the Emigrants in this country, and to relieve the inhabitants of both Quebec and Montreal, from a very unpleasant burthen with with [sic] the former wretched state of these wanderers taxed their humanity.–The Emigrants are now to receive a free passage, and provisions, and to be forwarded at government expence from the place of their landing to the spot laid out for their intended location, and to be put in immediate possession of the quantity of land allotted to each, free of every charge. A special order from Lord Bathurst has been received in this country, directing that the Emigrants shall receive one years rations, to commence from the period they take possession of the land, and to be distributed in proportion to the number of each family. They are also to be provided with farming utensils, and one set of bedding for each.–We have heard likewise, (but we cannot vouch for it) that a cow is to be added to each family.–This mode cannot fail of producing the good consequences which the government is so desirous of effecting. On the arrival of the Emigrants by the Steam Boats above mentioned, fifty eight carts, and two caleshes were procured at this place to convey them and their baggage to LaChine, on their way to the townships recently laid out on the south side of the Ottawa, or Grand River–during the period of their remaining at LaChine they occupied the Government Barracks.–They were accompanied by Doctors Dickson and Hamilton, gentlemen of excellent character, and eminent for professional abilities.
On Sunday morning last between the hours of 8 and 9 o’clock a smart shock of an Earthquake was experienced at Cham-plain, [sic] it was instantanious, [sic] but the rumbling noise was distinctly heard for upwards of a minute–our informent could not tell whether any damage was done by this Phoenomenon, as he left the place shortly after it occurred.

  Melancholy Wreck of the Brig Monarch, of Aberdeen, Alexander Martin, Master, on St. Paul’s Island, in the Gulph of St. Lawrence.
On Sunday morning, the 14th Sept. At 3, A.M. the Monarch, bound from Newry to Quebec, in a thick fog and wind southerly, struck on a sunken rock on the south-east side of the Island of St. Paul; but fortunately for the crew and passengers, she beat over it and came in contact with the cliffs of the Island. There were thirty persons on board when the vessel struck, twelve of them seamen, the others passengers, five of whom were drowned and many of the remainder dreadfully wounded by the rocks. The Captain and crew, who were particularly active in their endeavours to save the lives of the passengers, fortunately sustained but trifling injury. The method they adopted to get on shore, was by cutting away the masts which fell on the rocks, and by the greatest exertions twenty-five of their number succeeded in getting to land. The vessel held together but ten minutes after they were landed, and the whole of the passengers and part of the crew being at rest when she struck, they were consequently cast naked on shore. In this deplorable state they remained three days on the Island without any thing to subsist on but a few pieces of pork which fortunately floated on shore from the wreck, and which they were obliged to eat raw, some clothing which also come on shore assisted in port [sic] to cover their nakedness. Luckily on the morning of the 17th, the Ship Generous Planter, of London, from this port, hove in sight off the Island, and perceiving their signals, succeeded in bringing them all on board, and rescuing them from their perilous situation. The Captain, (Woodford) afforded them every assistance which their distresses required and is deserving the greatest praise for his humane and gentlemanly conduct towards them. The Captain, Mate, and on passenger, went home in the Generous Planters; [sic] the remainder have arrived here in the Sir Jas. Kempt, to which vessel they were transferred by Capt. Woodford. Capt. Stewart, of the Sir J. Kempt, rendered them every assistance which his means would allow, and is equally entitled to their gratitude.

Two of the passengers were preachers, one of the Presbyterian, and the other of the Methodist persuasion.

A Subscription List is open at the Exchange for the relief of the surviving suffereres [sic] by the above wreck, who from the loss of their all, may justly be considered fit objects for public commiseration and beneficence.

A singular occurrence took place at the launch of the Ship General Wolfe, from the Yard of Mr. Bell, in this City [Montreal], a few days ago. When the shores, &c. had been removed and the last wedge applied, the vessel unaccountably hung upon the ways; several fruitless efforts were made to put her in motion, at length one of her crew, half seas over, remarked that “the General had not been shaved, and no soldier officer he knew would ever quit his quarters without that operation being first performed,” he accordingly took some oakum and black paint and proceeding over the bows, envisaged the figure head & trimmed the General to his own taste, giving his whiskers the most martial cut imaginable; scarcely had the humourous shaver half alarmed at the successful issue of his jest, regained the deck just in time to avoid the shock which consigned the good ship to her destined eliment, [sic] amidst te loud huzzas of the mystified multitude, many of whom went home completely satisfied that the launch was affected by the jocular necromancy of the honest tar.–Mer.
From the N.Y.E. Post.
Red River Establishment–Earl Selkirk’s establishment on the Red River of Hudson’s Bay, appears to be on the eve of breaking up. Two Swiss families who left it and arrived at St. Louis, state that the whole of the Scots and Swiss located there were about to evacuate the country, owing to the extreme severity of the weather, and the constant dread they were under of being attacked by the Indians. There had been an engagement between the Sacs and Sioux Indians in which the former had 7 killed and 12 or 15 wounded, and the latter 11 killed & 12 wounded.
Quebec, Oct. 7th.
We are sorry to announce the loss of two vessels bound to this port, near Cape Ray. The brig Emma, Captain Cockin, owned by Mr. Finch, of this city; from Liverpool, in ballast, and the Schr. Penryn Castle, from Halifax, with military clothing. The clothing and the crew of the latter vessel, with the exception of one man who was unfortunately lost, have been brought up by the Bark Duck, from Newfoundland.
Galvanic Apparatus–A new and powerful apparatus has been constructed at the London Institution by the ingeninus [sic] W.H. Pepys, Esq. It consists of a single sheet of copper and one zinc, each 50 feet long and 2 feet broad. They are wound round a wooden centre, and kept apart by pieces of interposed hair-lines. The coil and its counterpoise are suspended by a rope over a tub of a dilute acid. When lowered into the tub, its electricity is so low as not to affect the electrometer; even a bit of charcoal serves to insulate it, and it can hardly ignite an inch of plattnum [sic] wire of one thirtieth of an inch diameter; but when the poles are connected by a copper wire of 1/8 inch diameter and 8 inches long, it becomes hot, is most powerfully magnetic, and admirably adapted for all electro magnetic experiments.

Intercourse with Europe.–We lately mentioned that four packet ships were building at Liverpool, for the purpose of establishing a regular intercourse between that port and Charleston. The Lella Rookh, arrived at the latter place in the remarkable short passage of 23 days, in one of these ships, and is described in the Charleston papers as an elegant and convenient vessel, measuring 330 tons: her windlass works by iron machinary (an endless screw on wheels) her pumps are of a new construction, and she is steered by an improved simple and compact wheel apparatus....
The competition among the steam boats on the Clyde is at present so great, that some of them carry passengers from Glasgow to Campbeltown, a distance of upwards of a hundred miles, for the charge of half a crown.
We understand that a letter from an officer of the 29th foot states, that that distinguished corps is to embark for Canada in the Spring.
Ben Jonson the Poet.–As the workmen were excavating a vault in the north aisle of Westminster Abbey, last week to receive the remains of the wife of Sir Robert Wilson, they discovered at the head of it, a leaden coffin in a perpendicular position, which they found upon examination, to contain the skeleton entire of Ben Jonson, the poet.–Tradition states, that Ben Jonson, while he was seriously indisposed, was asked where he would be buried? He replied, “I will be intered in Westminster Abbey if I can get a foot of ground;” and that the Dean of Westminster gave sufficient ground (about two foot square) to admit the coffin in a perpendicular position, and a square hole was dug and the corpse admitted head downwards. At the top of the hole, a stone, about eighteen inches square, was found with the initials “B.J.” upon it, in rather illegible characters.–London Paper.

The Tobacco in the Western District is this season very promising. Towards the close of last month sharp frosts materially injured what was still on the ground. We are happy to learn however, that the greater part of the crop had been previously secured.
Niagara, Oct. 4.–The wheat crop were got in in good order, and would have been an excellent crop had it not been for the Hessian Fly, which greatly injured many fine fields; still, however, there is much good wheat in the Country.

  A coroner’s inquest was last week held on the body of Wm. Potter, a native of England, who was drowned in the St. Lawrence, near the foot of the Current St. Marie. It appeared before the Inquest, that the deceased went to the river with his cart, and a puncheon to procure water, and not being acquainted with the depth, the cart sunk below the surface of the water and the puncheon floated on the stream. The weight of the cart under water overturned the horse, and in the efforts which the deceased made for the recovery, of the puncheon, and the preservation of himself and horse, he was unfortunately drowned!–Verdict, “accidental death.”
The Orphean Society gave a Concert at the Mansion House on Monday evening last, in aid of the funds of the Montreal General Hospital.–A numerous, and fashionable audience attended, and we understand they were highly gratified by the efforts of the Gentlemen amateurs. The net proceeds we are informed will amount to about £45.
Casualty–On Thursday afternoon, one of the fire men on board the New Swifture Steam-Boat, being employed on some duty near the engine, was unfortunately caught in a part of the machinery and so dreadfully crushed that he survived the accident but a few minutes. The deceased was a native of Ireland, named James Dooris.–Times. On the same evening a person by the name of Fortin, belonging to Sorel, fell from the Steam Boat Telegraph, and was drowned. He was taken from the water about ten minutes after having fallen, but life was extinct. In the endeavours to save him the Telegraph was loosened from her moorings, and a very strong wind drove her directly against Goudie’s wharf, in such a manner that she was not extricated without considerable injury. On the night of Wednesday last the New Swiftsure in endeavouring to pass from Goudie’s Wharf in Quebec, up the river, to put some freight on board a brig; the night being very dark and snow falling, she ran directly afowl of the ship Dublin, which vessel had not, as is prescribed by law, a light exhibited. The shock was terrible; the Steam Boat being under full headway. The left wing of the Swifture coming in contact with the laboard bows of the Dublin, her stancheons were broken in, her cut-water injured, and her bob-stays broken.--No very serious injury was sustained. The Dublin suffered more seriously; her bulwarks were broken in; her rigging damaged, and her chain plates so much injured, as to be declared not sea-worthy.--Times.

  Orphan Assylum.–We understand that the paintings lately announced in the Herald as intended for exhibition in aid of the funds of this excellent institution, are now arranged, and will be opened to the public this day. We are convinced the benevolent motives of the Gentleman to whom the paintings belong, will be duly appreciated by the public, and that the charitable purpose for which he has so generously permitted these valuable pictures to be exhibited, will continue to receive that encouragement which the liberality of our citizens have hertofore bestowed on the distressed Orphans, who have been supported, protected, and educated in the assylum. [sic] Tickets may be had at the Book Stores by those who have not an opportunity of obtaining them, from the Ladies who direct the institution.

Quebec, Oct. 30th
The Brig Royal Oak, Capt. Darley, outward bound from Quebec to Hull, was totally lost on the morning of the 15th ult. Off Cape Rosier. She sailed on the 11th, and until the 14th experienced nothing unfavorable; on that day the wind began to blow strong from the N. East, and by the following morning had increased to such violence, as to compel the ship to lie to. In this situation a heavy sea struck her, which carried away her stanchions, bulwarks, boats and deck load, starting at the same time her deck timbers; this caused the vessel to fill rapidly, and she shortly fell over, but in about ten minutes righted again, with the loss of the foremast and bowsprit, and three of the crew, the 2d mate, cook and a boy; the remainder, consisting of the Captain, Mate, carpenter, 4 seaman and 2 boys, now used their endeavor to get to the fore-part of the vessel, and all succeeded except the 2 boys, who were washed over by the violence of the waves. Here they remained some hours, benumbed with cold and exhausted with exertion; in the course of which time two of the seaman died. Towards evening, the rest (5 in number) got into the main-top, where they remained, with the exception of the Captain, who returned on deck the same night, and was washed overboard, until the 19th, when the Ship Margaret, Capt. Creighton, from Hull hove in sight, and immediately despatched two of her boats to the wreck, which brought off the survivors who were in a shocking state of debility for want of food, and having their hands and feet severely frost bitten. From Capt. C. They gratefully acknowledge to have received every mark of kindness and attention that humanity can bestow; and by him were they landed at Quebec on Monday last. Names of the survivors, Mathew Gresswood, 1st Mate, John Green, Carpenter, Charles Shuttleworth and Robert Smith, seamen. The Mate and the two seamen are in the Emigrants’ Hospital, in a fair way to recover. The following gives a comparative view of the number of vessels and their arrived tonnage at the port of Quebec up to the 30th October 1822 and the same late this year.

By the schr. Mary Washington, Captain Kea, we have received Jamaica papers to the 29th ult. In an article under the St. Vincent head, it is stated that the two missionaries who have been arrested at Demerara, on suspicion of having excited the blacks to rebellion are named Eliot and Smith, and that they are agents of the London Missionary Society not of the Wesleyan, as has been erroneously reported. Destruction of Vera Cruz.–The Baltimore Patriot of yesterday, says:–“The schr. Camilla, from Vera Cruz, in 15 days, has just anchored at quarantine. It is said she brings accounts that the town had been razed to the ground, by the castle of St. Juan d’Ulna.”

A thaw commenced on Thursday, which has continued till this morning; the weather was so hazy that the Steam Boat Montreal could not proceed to LaPrairie yesterday evening.
Arrived at the Port of Quebec [Canadian Courant..., Wednesday, November 26, 1823.]
  A Passenger in the Steam Boat Quebec, who left her at Portneuf, informs us that such was the quantity and power of the ice running in the river between that place and Quebec, that a considerable hole was cut in her bows, and had not the greatest expedition been used in shifting the freight and placing in the after part of the vessel, she must have filled in a very short time. She was run aground in order to be repaired; and it was thought that the mildness of the weather on Friday and Saturday would make it practicable for her to reach town. The coldness of the weather subsequently, must have prevented it.–Times.
On Sunday morning as the Steam Boat Montreal was leaving the wharf at Laprairie for this place, the crosshead of her engine broke, which was occasioned by the frost. This is the only accident that has happened to the Montreal during the whole season; and will prevent her running again this year; as soon as her engine is repaired she will proceed to her wintering ground at La Tortue.–Times.
Supposed to have been taken by Mistake from on board the Steam-boat New-Swiftsure, on Monday the 10th, Instant, a Case marked J.S. addressed Thos. Madigan, Grocer Place D’Armes, Montreal. Whoever may have the above case and will forward it to the above address, or to this Office will oblige the Subscriber, who will pay any expence, that may be incurred.
