Intelligence: ship Lord Cathcart was wrecked coming here in Long. 35 W. Two of the Crew on board the Abeona.

The Steamboat Perserverance intended to ply between La Chine and Point Fortune, on the Outtawas River [Outaouais / Ottawa River] or St. Andrews on the north-river, made her first trip last week, and by means of a cable and anchor passed the difficult rapid of St. Anns in less than twenty minutes. As canals are now the order of the day, this obstruction will, no doubt, be erelong obviated. This Steamboat is about 80 feet long, and had good accommodation for passengers. It is calculated she will be able to perform her passage up in seven hours and return in five.

The La Chine Canal of which so much has been said for two years past, has at last some reasonable prospect of a commencement. We understand that the contract for cutting the La Chine Canal, has been given to Messrs. Thomas Philips, Andrew White, Oliver Waite and Stanley Baggs and that they are in immediate want of 500 men in order to commence operations as expetitiously [sic] as possible. (Courant)

CASUALTY - On the 29th ult, a respectable Scotch emigrant, named James Dick, bathing near Lachine, and ignorant of the sudden declivity of the bottom, got beyond his depth, was hurried away by the current and was drowned. He has left a wife and no less than eleven children in indigent circumstances. "It was a woeful sight (says our informant, speaking of the latter) to see them running to and fro on that part of the beach where his clothes lay; whilst the mother, poor woman ! remained ignorant of it, through the prudent measures of the settlers, until alas ! it was too certain that he had gone to that bourne from which no traveller returns. On its being communicated to her, she became bewildered and could not believe it, till grief choaked [sic] her and she fainted. On recovery, surrounded by her numerous offspring, it was a sight to melt the most obdurate heart; but the evil was irremediable, and the next day, she piously told me, in a tone scarcely audible, that she resigned herself to the will of her all merciful Creator.
"Upon our worthy Governor (continues he) being informed of the circumstances, he, with his characteristic benevolence, directed that the grant of land and other support which was to have been given to the father, should be continued to the eldest son and mother for the future maintenance of the family, for which they werre very grateful, and proceeded with the other settlers to their place of destination, the new settlement of Lanark." (Herald)
[the Dick family had arrived at Quebec on the David (of London) on 25th June 1821]

The bark Henry has been but 27 days out from London, but, unfortunately, the Master brought no papers. Several other vessels have arrived today [at Quebec], of which we have not been able to procure a report.


The June Packet arrived from England at Halifax, furnishes London advices, via Boston, to the 16th June.
The coronation of the King [George IV Hanover] was fixed by proclamation to the 19th of this month and is therefore already past.

The decease of Buonaparte has been announced by a vessel from England and by another from Havre de Grace in France ; it has been even added that his body was to be brought to Europe for internment, but as no mention is made of his demise in the latest London papers received by the June Packet, these reports are not to be believed.

We observe from the American papers, that the troops of the United States were on the 10th ult. put in possession of St. Augustine ; the same thing, and at the same time, although it is not mentioned, no doubt took place at Pensacola. Thus have the Americans obtained the Floridas after waiting a length of time with much patience, but still persuing their point with unremitted perseverance. As a Republic, like the miser, has never enough, is never satisfied, what will it aim at next?

(From the New York Gazette, August 15)

Capt. West, of the schooner Moxa, arrived at the Quarantine Ground last evening, from Basse-Terre, Guadaloupe, informs the editers of the Gazette, that just before he sailed, a British frigate arrived there with despatches, announcing the death of Bonaparte. No particulars had been promulgated, and the frigate, after remaining half an hour in the port, got under weigh, and proceeded to leeward. [We may consider this as a full confirmation of the death of the great Napolean Bonaparte. As to the political effect of this event, we do not feel ourselves competant to give all its bearings. The event is a momentous one, and the result may prove highly important to the world.]


Quebec, August 17

After two or three days of oppressive heat, we were on Tuesday evening visited with a thunder storm, attended with much vivid lightning, which lasted some hours. On Wednesday the town, early in the morning, was obscured with a thick vapour, through which the sun was scarcely able to penetrate. About mid-day, and for some time after, the vapour re-appeared tinged with somewhat of a fiery glow, which soon changed to a saffron hue. The obscurity was so dense that some found it neccessary, about one o'clock, to light candles for purposes of business.
