Every possible means has been taken to insure a reliable Census of Montreal. 
To those who really desire the Census I have to say that they are mainly indebted 
to Andrew F. Gault, Esq., and to Hugh Graham, Esq., for the undertaking and 
completion of it. At the request of the former and after consultation with the latter 
of these gentlemen, I decided to undertake a Census of Montreal. I then prepared a 
Prospectus and commenced a canvass for subscriptions ; but after an urgent appeal I 
soon saw that sufficient subscribers, at 50c. each, could not be secured to meet half 
the cost of publication. This being the case I applied to patriotic citizens to aid me 
by becoming 50c. Line Contributors, and thereby save me from serious loss, as 
otherwise I should be forced to abandon the work I had so cheerfully undertaken, 
and to disappoint my generous and true friends. I am proud to say that 50c. Line 
Contributors enabled me to put sixty Sworn Enumerators on the Streets, Squares, 
etc., of the City, to look for and obtain the actual number sleeping in each house, 
or other building, their sex, religion and calling ; and at the request of the Finance 
Committee of the Corporation, to take the Nationalities, Forms for which were 
prepared with studied care and in the belief that they would be acceptable. But, no ! 
A few gentlemen were annoyed because I had no headmg or column for E?iglish 
Canadians ! Well, I fancied I had several headings for English Canadians; that is, I 
had a heading for English, English born in Canada; Irish, Irish born in Canada; 
Scotch, Scotch born in Canada, and so on ; these headings enabled me to make a 
Recapitulation of Nationalities, printed on page 21. It will, I trust, satisfy the 
most fastidious. The sixty sworn Enumerators did not hear of complaints about 
the Nationalities. I may add that each Enumerator spoke and understood French 
and English. Their returns show a population, within City limits, of 1 10,098 females ; 
101,204 males ; 81,189 Catholic females; 74,322 Cathohc males ; 27,896 Protestant 
females; 25,939 Protestant males; 28 Chinese; 923 Jewesses; 1005 Jews; or, a 
total population of 211,302. 

The Nationalities are printed on pages 22 and 23; with the Recapitulation on 
page 21. 

In this matter of Nationalities the Enumerators had much to contend with, in 
trying to explain to unwilling citizens the object of taking them. A few would not 
listen to reason but abruptly decHned giving any information relative to their Nation- 
ality. Yet it is pleasing to state that a very large number of the population were 
glad to give all required information. At times six or eight different Nationalities 
were found in a single dwelling, causing great delay in securing complete and accu- 
rate returns. 

My Historic Report of Census of Montreal is given in the honest belief and 
conviction that it will be found as correct as the means available would allow. 

My sincere thanks are tendered to the several Religious, Benevolent and Charit- 
able Institutions for satisfactory answers to direct questions, and especially to the 
Ladies of the Grey Nunnery, for devoting five hours of their valuable time to the task 
of verifying the statistics relative to their institution. The Lady Superioress, without 
a moment's hesitation, authorized two of the Reverend Sisters to give me all the 

20 Publisher's Preface. 

information I wanted. They accordingly went to their vaults in search of records, 
papers and books that contained dates and other information, now printed in this 
Historic Report as a correct statement to January, 1891. I might single out other 
institutions, but where all were desirous of giving full and unreserved details, my 
sincere thanks are tendered to all. 

To the writer of the able and interesting " Historical Sketch of Montreal," 
I beg to offer my sincere and heartfelt thanks. 

To Charles Glackmeyer, Esq., our estimable and obliging City Clerk, and to 
William Robb, Esq., curable and worthy City Treasurer, I am indebted for valuable 
data relative to Municipal affairs and the City's Financial position, 

lam deeply indebted to my old friend, Peter Crossby, for his careful and trust- 
worthy account of the Port of Montreal. 

To Alexander Robertson, Esquire, Secretary of the Harbor Commissioners, I 
cheeringly offer my thanks for statements and figures which give additional value to 
Mr. Crossby's sketch. 

To Mr. E. J. Gollifer, my indefatigable and trustworthy assistant, for collecting 
information from Religious, Benevolent and Charitable Institutions, my best thanks 
are offered. 

To the energetic, painstaking and intelligent staff of Sixty Enumerators I 
have pleasure in saying that they worthily earned my confidence and esteem. 

To my Office Staff of twelve intelligent and painstaking Young Girls, and 
to two first-class Arithmeticians, Joseph L. Smith and Emile Handcock, from 
whom I received constant and able assistance, thanks are also due. Their task was 
to examine and arrange 2771 sheets of 524 Streets, Squares, etc., returned by the 

To reduce to alphabetical order, and secure uniformity and accuracy, the column 
of clerical, legal and medical professions, mercantile and other caUings, and trades, or 
as the case might be, had to be copied and collated three different times. The 
additions and checking were most arduous, but the work had to be done. 2771 sheets 
of 1 1 columns each with 17 lines on the sheet, gave a total addition of 30,481 
columns, and, consequently, a like quantity of checking. In addition to these, 
30 Nationalities contained in 412 Forms, and arranged under 212 separate headings, 
were compared, copied and checked, the result being the totals as found on pages 22 
and 23 of this work. 

The anxious labor and effectiveness of all who were engaged on the work are 
worthy of all praise. 

These details are given as a reasonable cause of delay in the issue of this Census 
Report. Some extra copies have been printed, with the hope that they may be sold 
for transmission to friends in the Mother Country and elsewhere. For myself I will 
send one thousand copies to The Press of this Canada of ours ; to leading papers 
in' New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New Orleans, Riclnnond, Chicago, 
Buffalo, and Detroit ; to some leading papers in England, Scotland, and Ireland, 
as well as to journals in France, Germany, and Belgium. 

To The Press of this Ciiy I am deeply indebted for the public spirited and 
kindly manner in which they noticed the Prospectus of this work.

Next Year (1892) Americans of every name will be commemorating, as is most 
meet, the discovery of this western hemisphere by Columbus, four hundred years 
before. In the same year the people of Montreal will also be celebrating the two 
hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of their city by De Maisonneuve. 
But its antiquity ought not really to be bounded by that formal act. Even if we 
pass over the fact that Champlain had actually, in 161 1, begun the work of clearing 
and building on the very point that De Maisonneuve subsequently selected for his 
fortress and habitation — giving it the very name, Place Royale, which it bore long 
afterwards, — it must not be forgotten that Montreal is one of the rare instances of a 
European city having been superimposed upon an Indian town. More than a hundred 
years before De Maisonneuve, with the solemn rites of the Church, consecrated 
to the Virgin Mother the capital of his colony, a fortified bourgade stood at the 
base of the trappean hill, from which Montreal receives its name. How long it 
had occupied that position of pre-eminence we can only conjecture. But the 
fact, that in the early part of the sixteenth century it was the strong dwelling-place 
of an apparently thriving community, shows that its admirable natural advantages 
had been recognized even by the rude predecessors of its civilized inhabitants. 
The sight that greeted the eyes of the hardy mariner of St. Malo and his brave com- 
panions was an augury of the greatness and prosperity of Montreal in days to come, 
when the din of strife should have been succeeded by the sounds of manifold industry. 

It was a happy instinct which impelled the children of the forest to make a strong- 
hold of Hochelaga. For security, for shelter, for convenience of rendezvous, no 
point could present better facilities, so that its choice by those rude warriors and 
hunters was an unconscious forecast of its remoter and grander destinies. By patient, 
far-seeing nature those destinies had, indeed, been marked out in the very dawn of 
time. The slow preparation for fulfilment began when the primeval germ of the con- 
tinent rose, bleak and lifeless, above the archccan sea. By the unhurrying action of 
mighty forces, below and above, its foundations had been laid deep and solid. The 
throes of the volcano raised aloft its mountain bulwark. True father of waters, 
the yet nameless St. Lawrence, first born of American rivers, had indicated it as 
the e?it7-epot of mighty nations ere yet the Mississippi Valley had emerged from the 
primal ocean. 

Evidently, therefore, the history of Montreal embraces three successive periods, — 
the Aboriginal, the French, and the British. The first of these divisions, though it 
admits of voluminous treatment, involving, as it necessarily does, a question of the 
utmost value to ethnologists, is mainly interesting to the general reader for its 
association with Jacques Cartier. The story of that explorer'.s visit to Hochelaga has 
been told by many writers, and is familiar to every Canadian school boy. He was born 
at St. Malo, in Brittany, in the year 1500. In 1534 he first crossed the Atlantic, the 
route being already frequented by Basque and Breton fishermen, and, having entered 

26 Historical Sketch of Montreal 

the Gulf, named the Baie des Chaleurs, made acquaintance with the natives of our 
coast land, and set up a cross with a French escutcheon ; he returned to France with a 
couple of Indians, who afterwards served him as interpreters. Next year (1535) 
he again entered our great water-way, to which he gave the name which it has ever 
since been proud to bear. His squadron consisted of La Grande Hermine 
(from 100 to 120 tons burden), which he commanded in person; La Petite Hermine 
(of 60 tons), in command of Mace Jalobert, Cartier's brother-in-law ; and the Emer- 
illon (of 40 tons), in charge of Guillaume Le Breton. Accompanying the leader of 
the expedition were several persons of note, members of noble families, such as Claude 
de Pontbriand, son of the Seigneur de Montreuil, and cup bearer to the Dauphin ; 
Charles de la Pommeraye and Jehan Poullet ; the names of the crews have also been 
preserved in the archives of St. Malo. The total enumeration comprises 74 names. 
Reaching Stadacona (Quebec), Cartier was cordially received by Donnacona, the 
chief of the tribes which had their headquarters at that place. But when it was 
perceived that the strangers purposed advancing still further up the river, all kinds 
of dissuasive arguments were employed to deter the daring explorer from such an 
attempt. The chiefs, finding their oratorical powers unavailing, had recourse (says 
the record) to a ruse, by which, if possible, to arouse the superstitious fears of the 
adventurers. Cartier, however, was not to be diverted from his course ; on the 
17th of September he began the arduous ascent, and on the 2nd of October he 
reached the site of Canada's future metropolis. 

What ensued may be fitly described in the ancient mariner's own language* as 
urned into English by the Rev. Richard Hakluyt : — 

" The captaine the next day very eareiy in the morning, having attired hiniselfe, caused all his com . 
pany to be set in order to go to see the towne and habitation of those people, and a cerlaine mountaine 
that is neere the citie ; with whom went also the gentlemen and twenty mariners, leaving the rest to 
keepe and looke to our boates : we tooke with us three men of Hochelaga to bring us to the place. 

* In order that the French reader, or the English reader, who is a student of the French language 
and literature, may have an opportunity of contrasting Jacques Cartier's speech with the modern 
tongue, an extract from the original of the passage quoted is here appended : — 

Le lendemain au plus matin, le Capitaine s'accoustra, et fist mettre ses gens en ordre pour aller 
voir la ville et demeurance du dit peuple, et une montagne qui est jacente a la dite viUe, ou all^rent 
avecque le dit Capitaine les gentils-hommes, et vingt mariniers, et laissa le parsus pour la garde des 
barques, et prit troishommes de la dite ville de Hochelaga pour les mener et conduire au dit lieu. Et 
nous estans en chemin, le trouvasmes aussi battu qu'il soit possible de voir, en la plus belle terre et 
meilleure plaine : des chenes aussi beaux qu'il y en ait en foret de France, sous lesquels estoit toute la 
terre couverte de glands. Et nous, ayant fait environ une lieu et demie, (*) trouvasmes sur le chemin 
I'un des principaux de la dite ville de Hochelaga, avecque plusieurs personnes, lequel nous fist signe 
qu'il se falloit reposer au dit lieu pr^s un feu qu'ils avoient fait au dit chemin. Et lors commenga le 
dit Seigneur £l faire un sermon et preschement, comme ci-devant est dit etre leur coutume de faire 
joye et connoissance, en faisant celui Seigneur ch^re au dit Capitaine et sa compagnie ; lequel Capi- 
taine lui donna une couple de baches et une couple de couteaux, avec une Croix et remembrance du 
Crucifix qu'il lui fist baiser, et lui pendit au col: de quoi il rendit graces au dit Capitaine. Ce fait, 
marchames plus outre, et environ demie lieue de la commen9ames a trouver les terres labour^es, et 
belles grandes campagnes pleines de bl6 de leurs terres, qui est comme mil de Bresil, aussi gros ou 
plus que pois, (f) duquel ils vivent, ainsi que nous faisons de froment. Et au parmi d'icelles cam- 
pagnes est situ6e et assise la dite ville de Hochelaga, (^ pr^s et joignante une montagne qui est a 
I'entour d'icelle, bien labouree et fort fertile : de dessus laquelle on voit fort loin. Nous nommasmes 
icelle montagne le Mont Royal.

TIla Story of its Foundation. 

All along as we went we found the way as well beaten and frequented as can be, the fairest and best 
country that possibly can be seene, full of as goodly great okes as are in any wood in France, under 
which the ground was all covered over with faire akornes. After we had gone about league and a half 
we met by the way one of the chiefest lords of the citie, accompanied with many moe, who so sooneas 
he sawe us beckned and made signes upon us, that we must rest in that place where they had a great 
fire, and so we did. Then the said lord began to make a long discourse, even as we have saide above, 
they are accustomed to doe in signe of mirth and friendship, shewing our captaine and all his company 
a joyful countenance and good will; who gave him two hatchets, a paire of knives and a crucifix, 
which he made him to kisse, and then put it about his necke, for which he gave our captaine heartie 
thankes. This done, we went along, and about half a league farther, we began to finde goodly 
and large cultivated fieldes, full of such corne as the countrie yeeldeth. It is even as the millet of 
Bresil, as great and somewhat bigger than small peason, wherewith they live even as we doe with our 
wheat. In the midst of those fields is the citie of Hochelaga, placed ncere, and as it were joyned to a 
great mountaine, that is tilled round about, very fertill, on the top of which you may see very farre. We 
named it Mount Roiall. The citie of Hochelaga is round, compassed about with timber, with three 
course of rampires, one within another framed like a sharp spire, or pyramid, but laid acrosse above. 
The middlemost of them is perpendicular. The rampires are framed and fashioned with pieces of timber 
layd along very well and cunningly joyned togither after their fashion. This enclosure is in height about 
two rods. It hath but one gate or entrie thereat, which is shut with piles, stakes and barres. Over it, 
and also in many places of the wall, there is a kind of gallery to runne along, and ladders to get up, 
all full of stones and pebbles for the defence of it. There are in the towne about fiftie houses, at the 
utmost about fiftie paces long, and twelve or ^fteen broad, built all of wood, covered over with the 
barke of the wood, as broad as any boord, very finely and cunningly joyned togither according to their 
fashion. Within the said houses, there are many roomes. In the midest of every one there is a great 
hall m the middle whereof they make their fire. They live in common togither : then doe the husbands, 
wives and children each one retire themselves to their chambers. They have also on thj top of their 
houses certaine granaries, wherein they keepe their corne to make their bread withall ; they call it Cara- 
cony, which they make as hereafter shall follow. They have certaine peeces of wood, like those whereon 
we beat our hempe, and with certain beetles of wood they beat their corne to powder ; then they make 
paste of it, and of the paste, cakes or wreathes, then they lay them on a broad and bote stone, and 
then cover it with bote pebbles, and so they bake their bread instead of ovens. They make also sundry 
sorts of pottage with the said come and also of peas and beanes, whereof they have great store, as also 
with other fruits, great cowcumbers and other fruits. They have also in their houses certaine vessels 
as bigge as any But or Tun, wherein they keepe their fish, causing the same in sommer to be dried in 
the smoke, and live therewith in winter, whereof they make great provision, as we by experience have 
seene. All their viands and meats are without any taste or savour of salt at all. They sleepe upon 
barkes of trees laid all along upon the ground, being over-spread with the skinnes of certaine wilde 
Beastes, wherewith they also clothe and cover themselves, namely, of the Dormouse, Beaver, Martin, 
Fox, Wild Cat, Deer, Stag, and other wild beasts, but the greater part of them go almost naked 
(during the sommer). The thing most precious that they have in all the world they call Esurgny,* 
which is white, and which they take in the said river in Cornibots, in the manner following : When any 
one hath deserved death, or that they take any of their enemies inwarres, first they kill him, then with 
certaine knives they give great slashes and strokes upon their buttocks, flankes, thighs and shoulders; 
then they cast the same bodie so mangled downe to the bottome of the river, in a place where the said 
Esurgn\' is, and there leave it ten or twelve houres, then they take it up againe, and in the cuts find the 
said esurgny or cornibots. Of them they make beads, and use them even as we doe gold and silver, 
accounting' it the preciousest thing in the world. They have this vertue in them, they will stop or 
stench bleeding at the nose, for we proved it. These people are given to no other exercise, but onely 
to husbandrie and fishing for their sustenance : they have no care of any other wealth o." commoditie 
in this world, for they have noknowledge of it, and never travell an 1 go of their country, as those of 
Canada and Saguenay doe, albeit the Canadians with eight or nine villages more alongst that rive " be 
subject unto them.

28 Historical Sketch of Montreal : 

"So soone as we were come neere the towne, a great number of the inhabitants thereof came to 
present themselves before us, after their fashion, making very much of us : we were by our guides 
brought into the middest of the towne. They have in the middlemost part of their towne a large square 
place, being from side to side a good stone cast, whither we were brought, and there with signes were 
commanded to stay, and so we did : then suddenly all the women and maidens of the towne gathered 
themselves together, part of which had their armes full of young children, and as many as could came 
to kiss our faces, our armes, and what part of the bodie soever they could touch, weeping for very joy 
that they saw us, shewing us the best countenance that possibly they could, desiring us with their 
signes, that it woald please us to touch their children. That done, the men caused the women to 
withdraw themselves backe, then they every one sate down on the ground round about us, as if we 
would have shewen and rehearsed somecomedie or other shew : then presently came the women againe, 
every one bringing a fouresquare matte in manner of carpets, and spreading them abroad on the ground 
in that place, they caused us to sit upon them. That done, the lord and king of the country was 
brought upon nine or ten men's shoulders (whom in their tongue they called Agouhanna), sitting upon 
a great stagge's skinne, and they laid him do wne upon the foresaid mattes neere to the captaine, every one 
beckning unto us that hee was their lord. This Agouhanna was a man about fiftie yeeres old; he was 
no whit better apparelled than any of the rest, onely excepted that he had a certaine thing around his 
head made of the skinnes of hedgehogs* like a red wreath. He was full of the palsie, and his members 
shronke together. After he had with certaine signes saluted our captaine and all his companie, and by 
manifest tokens bid all welcome, he shewed his legges and armes to our captaine, and with signes, 
desired him to touch chem, and so he did, rubbing them with his own hands : then did Agouhanna 
take the wreath or crowne he had about his head, and gave it unto our captaine ; that done they brought 
before him diverse diseased men, some blinde, some criple, some lame and impotent, and some so old 
that the haire of their eyelids came downe and covered their cheekes, and layd them all along before 
our captaine, to the end they might of him be touched ; for it seemed unto them that God was des- 
cended and come dovi'n from heaven to heale them. Our captaine, seeing the misery and devotion of 
this poore people, recited the Gospel of St. John, that is to say, ' In the beginning was the Word, 
making the signe of the cross upon the poor sick ones, praying to God that it would please him to open 
the hearts of this poore people, and to make them know our holy faith, and that they might receive 
baptisme and christendome ; that done, he took a service-booke in his hand, and with a loud voice 
read all the passion of Christ, word by word, that all the standers by might heare him, all which while 
this poore people kept silence, and were marvellously attentive, looking up to heaven, and imitating 
us in gestures. Then he caused the men all orderly to be set on one side, the women on another, and 
likewise the children on another, and to the chiefest of them he gave hatchets, to the other knives, and 
to the women beads and such other small trifles. Then whereby children were he cast rings, counters 
and broaches made of tin, t whereat they seemed to be very glad. That done, our captaine commanded 
trumpets and other musicall instruments to be sounded, which when they heard they were very merie. 
Then we took our leave and went away ; the women seeing that put themselves before to stay us, and 
brought us out of their meates that they had made readie for us, as fish, pottage, beanes, and such other 
things, thinking to make us eate .ind dine in that place ; but because the meates were not to our taste 
we liked them not but thanked them, and with signes gave to understand that we had no neede to eate. 
When we were out of the towne, diverse of the men and women followed us, and brought us to the toppe 
of the foresaid mountaine, which wee named Mount Roiall, it is about a quarter of a league from the 
towne. When as we were on the toppe of it, we might discerne and plainly see thirtie leagues about. 
On the north side of it there are many hilles to be scene running west and east, and as many more on 
the south, amongst and betweene the which the countrey is as faire and as pleasant as possible can be 
scene, being level), smooth, and very plaine,fit to be husbanded and tilled, and in the middest of those 
fieldes we saw the river further up a great way than where we had left our boates, where was the greatest 
and the swiftest fall of water that any where hath beene scene which we could not pass, and the said 
river as great, wide and large as our sight might discerne, going southwest along three fair and round 
mountaines that we sawe, as we judged about fifteen leagues from us. Those which brought us thither 
tolde and .-jhewedus, that in the sayd river there were three such falles of water more as that was where 
we had left our boates ; but we could not understand how farre they were one from another. Moreover,

they showed us with signes, that the said three falles being past, a man might sayle the space of three 
months more alongst that river, and that along the hills that are on the north side there is a great 
river, which (even as the other) cometh from the west. We thought it to be the river that runneth 
through the countrey of Saguenay. Then, without any signe or question mooved or asked of them, they 
tooke the chayne of our captaine's whistle, which was of silver, and the dagger -haft of one of our fellow 
mariners hanging on his side, being of yellow copper gilt, and shewed us that such stuffe came from the 
said river, and that there be Agojudas, that is as much to say, an evill people, who goe all armed even 
to their fingers' ends. Also they shewed us the manner of their armour ; they are made of cordes and 
wood, finely and cunningly wrought together. They gave us also to understande that those Agojudas 
doe continually warre one against another ; but because we did not understand them well, we could not 
perceive how farre it was to that countrey. Our captaine shewde them redde copper, which in their 
language they call Caquedaz^, and looking towarde that countrey, with signes asked them if any came 
from thence, they shaking their heads answered no ; but they shewed us that it came from Saguenay, 
and that lyeth cleane contrary to the other. After we had heard and scene these things of them, we 
drewe to our boates accompanied with a great multitude of those people ; some of them, when they 
saweanyofourfellowes wearj^, would take them up on their shoulders, and carry them as on horseback." 
Such is the account that the great navigator has left us of his memorable visit to 
Hochelaga, Many attempts have been made to identify the native tribe by which 
he was so cordially received, and it is now generally admitted that the little settle- 
ment was of the great Huron-Iroquois family, with both branches of which the early 
colonists of New France were so closely, though diversely, associated. This conclu- 
sion has been reached by a comparison of Cartier's vocabularies with the language 
spoken at a later date by the confederate Iroquois and their Huron kinsmen. When, in 
the early years of the 17th century, Samuel de Champlain visited the scene of their 
sojourn, all traces of the little town and its occupants had disappeared. The founder 
of Quebec was not unaware of the importance of the locality. On his second visit in 
181 1 he selected and cleared a space of ground, near the mouth of a small stream that 
entered the St. Lawrence at Poi7ite a Callieres, where the Custom House now stands ; 
and, in order to test the effects of the ice-shove, he erected a river wall with bricks 
made out of clay found in fhe vicinity. It was on the very same spot that De 
Maisonneuve, thirty-one years later, landed with his devoted companions, and laid, in 
humble faith, the foundations of Ville Marie. The impulse which moved that pious 
and intrepid company to establish in an unknown wilderness in the New World a 
centre of evangelization — a veritable civitas Dei, as the more sanguine were fain to 
believe — has been laid bare in recent years by the researches of Abbe Verreau. With- 
out consulting the writings of that learned historian, especially his annotated repro- 
duction of the Veritables Motifs de Messieurs et Dames de Montreal, it is impossible 
to have an adequate appreciation of the aims and aspirations of that pious band. 
According to the record from which Mr. Verreau's diligence has raised the veil of two 
centuries and a half of silence (for it was virtually out of print), the motives 
which led the Societe de Notre Dame de Montreal to undertake its apostolic task 
were all of a spiritual and religious character — a fact which gives the beginnings of 
-Montreal an exceptional interest in the history of colonization. The visions and 
revelations that preceded and prompted the enterprise |may have a basis which 
modern historical criticism may find insufficient, and Mr. Verreau reminds his readers 
that in such matters the Church has always maintained a judicious reserve. But 
that the mission was due to strong religious convictions, and was characterized by 
an extraordinary share of that faith which, as we are told on good authority, can 
remove mountains, no one can deny. 

50 Historical Sketch of Montreal : 

It was on the i8th of May, 1642, that Paul de Chomedy, Sieur de Maisonneuve 
(whose life, with its trials and triumphs and melancholy close, has been written 
by Abbe Rousseau, P.S.S.), planted, as Father Vimont said, the grain of mustard 
seed that was destined to take root, to grow up, and to overshadow the land. M. de 
Montmagny, having in vain tried to dissuade M. de Maisonneuve from his resolution, 
at last gracefully yielded, and accompanied the pioneers up the river, so as to instal 
the tirst governor of Montreal in his office. Leaping ashore, M. de Maisonneuve and 
his companions fell on their knees, and with hymns of praise returned thanks to 
Providence for having guided them to the land of promise. An altar was erected and 
adorned by the pious hands of Madame de la Peltrie and Mademoiselle Mance. 
Father Vimont intoned the Feni Creator Spiritus, and celebrated the sacrifice of the 
mass, and then pronounced a benediction on the great work thus inaugurated. It is 
noteworthy that, instead of candle or lamp, a white glass bottle filled with fire-flies 
was suspended before the Eucharist, and Sister Morin has recorded that the light 
thus afforded was equal to that of several tapers. 

Around the stately figure of De Maisonneuve there gathered men and women, 
whose names should not be forgotten. Among them were P'ather Poncet, M. de 
Puiseaux, Mile. Mance, Mdme. de la Peltrie, Mile. Catherine Barre, Jean Gorry, Jean 
Robelin, Augustin Hebert, Antoine Damien, Jean Caillot, Pierre Laimery, ]S(icholas 
Gode and Francois Gadois, with his wife and their four children. All these were in 
Montreal in the summer of 1642. During the succeeding twelve months (1642-43) 
the following additions were made to the population : — 

Gilbert Barbier, J. B. Legardeur de Repentigny, Guillaume Boissier, Bernard 

Berte. Pierre Laforest, Henri , Cesar Leger, Jean Caron, Leonard Lucot dit 

Barbeau, Jacques Haudebert, Jean Masse, Mathurin Serrurier, Jean Bte. Damien, 
Jacques Boni, Jean Philippes, Pierre Didier, Pierre Quesnel, Julien Pothier, 

Bellanger, Louis Gode, Louis d'Ailleboust and Barbe de BouUogne, his wife. Mile. 
Philippine de Boullogne, Catherine Lezeau, Jean Matiemalle, Pierre Bigot, Guillaume 
Lebeau, M. David de la Touze. Fathers Joseph Imbert Dupenon, Ambroise Davoust 
and Gabriel Dreuillettes. 

The dwellings of the little community were clustered together, the whole settlement 
being surrounded by palisades of wood and stone. The whole group of habita- 
tions was known as the Fort and Chateau of Ville Marie. The scene with which the 
first new comers made acquaintance in the season of luxuriant vegetation was 
one of exceeding beauty. Away behind rose Mount Royal, clad in budding verdure, 
while past the little fortress village swept the grand St. Lawrence — both in their 
names recalling the visit of Jacques Cartier, as St. Helen's recalls Champlain (whose 
wife's name it bears) and St. Paul's does honor to De Maisonneuve himself. But 
the beauty of their surroundings could not make the pioneers forget the lurking peril 
of the thick forest that almost encircled them. 

It was not, however, from that source that the first ordeal through which they 
were called to pass had its origin. Against the raids of the Iroquois all due precau- 
tions had been taken, but there was another foe against whose encroachments no 
thought of defence had as yet occurred to the settlers. " In the month of December, 
1643," writes Abbe Faillon in his Hhtoire de la Colonic Fra;i(aise, "an unforeseen 
event that overtook the pious colonists increased their confidence in the divine good- 
ness. Nor, if we judge by the results which followed, can we help thinking that God

only permitted it in order to give them a fresh mark of His fatherly care. When M. 
de Maisonneuve selected the Place Royale as the site of the fort of Ville Marie, the 
locality, as already mentioned, seemed to offer many advantages. But, not having 
yet resided in the country, he did not foresee that the River St. Lawrence, notwith- 
standing its breadth, which is some three-quarters of a league at that point, might leave 
its bed and inundate the neighboring grounds. In the month of December, in 
the same year, 1642, it overflowed its banks to an extraordinary degree, and in a few 
moments covered all the environs of the Fort. At last as the flood augmented 
more and more, everyone retired within that place of safety and had recourse to 
prayer to turn aside so disastrous a visitation. The little stream on the bank 
of which the Fort had been built had already begun to overflow, when M. de Mai- 
sonneuve, moved by a lively sentiment of faith and trust, conceived the design of 
planting a cross on the bank of the river, so that it might please God to keep it 
within its bounds, if it were for His glory, or that He might make known His 
will, if He wished to be served in some other part of the island, in case the lately 
erected habitation should be overwhelmed by the waters. He declared his purpose 
to the Jesuit Fathers, who approved of it, and also made it publicly known to the 
colonists, who, aware of the purity of his intentions, were of one heart with him as to 
the religious act which he had determined on. He accordirigly set up the cross, at 
the same time making a solemn promise to God to carry another cross to the summit 
of the mountain if his prayer should be heard. But it was God's will to purify the 
faith of those zealous colonists as He had formerly perfected Abraham by the trials 
to which He exposed him. The waters still rose, rolling in great waves, till they had 
filled up the ditches of the Fort, approaching even to the threshold, and menacing 
with their fury the buildings in which were stored the munitions of war and the 
provisions for the subsistence of the colony. Nevertheless, alarming though the 
spectacle was, none murmured at the dispensation, which they accepted without fear 
and even without disquietude, though it was midwinter, even the day of the Lord's 
Nativity. M. de Maisonneuve was especially courageous, hoping that in good time 
his prayer would be heard. And that is just what happened, for the waters, having 
lingered a while at the gate of the Fort, without passing further, gradually retired, 
and thus freed the colony from the threatened danger."' 

M. de Maisonneuve, in his gratitude at so signal a deliverance, was not forgetful 
of his vow. Workmen were employed to clear a path up the mountain, while the 
great cross was being hewed into shape, and on the 6th of January (Epiphany), 
1643, all being in readiness, the cross was solemnly blessed, and the procession set 
out on its journey up the mountain. M. de Maisonneuve bore the cross himself, 
though it was of no light weight and though the road was rough. An altar was duly 
erected on the mountain, and Mr. Duperron celebrated mass, Madame de la Peltrie 
being the first to communicate. For long afterwards the cross was the destination 
of pious pilgrimages. So ended the first Montreal flood of which history has pre- 
served the record. 

The Iroquois, whose notice the settlers had happily escaped during the first few 
mouths, no sooner saw what was taking place, than they put forth all their ingenuity 
and malice in their efforts to undo the work and to exterminate the workers. 

Some Algonquins, having slain an Iroquois, sought refuge within the walls of the 
Fort from the tribesmen who undertook to avenge his death. The pursuers saw the 

32 Historical Sketch of Montreal : 

fugitives enter the gates, but not being numerous enough to assail the colony, they 
contented themselves with a stealthy examination of the defences against their return 
in stronger force. It was not long till the murdered Iroquois was more than avenged. 
In June, 1643, sixty Hurons, proceeding from their country with letters from the 
Jesuit Fathers, came upon a band of Iroquois near the place now well-known as 
Lachine, to whom, in order to secure immunity for themselves, they treacherously 
suggested an attack on Ville Marie. The Iroquois accepted the advice, and detailed 
forty of their number, all picked warriors, to carry out the raid. It so happened 
that just then six Frenchmen were engaged in building at some distance from the 
Fort, and these, by a feigned retreat, were decoyed into the hands of the enemy. 
Three met their fate on the spot. The other three were taken prisoners. As no dan- 
ger had been apprehended to these workmen — the scene of their labors being only 
about two hundred feet from the Fort itself, — it was not till they failed to make their 
appearance at the usual hour for their return that any anxiety was felt for their safety. 
The fears of the governor and his companions were soon realized. The lifeless- 
body of Guillaume Boissier, bearing the marks of fierce struggle and triumphant 
savage ferocity, was a silent but eloquent witness of Ville Marie's initial tragedy. 
Sadly and reverently the remains of the dead pioneer were borne back within the 
precincts of the town, and on the same day were solemnly laid to rest in a small 
enclosure set apart for a burying-ground, ad confluxum magni et parvi fluminis.^ 

A few days later, the bodies of two of his companions, Bernard Berte and Pierre 
Laforest, generally called VAicvergnat, were discovered in the bush. Of the three 
taken prisoners, one escaped ; the others were tortured and burned by the Iroquois. 
After that display of savage enmity the hostile Indians seldom ceased infesting Ville- 

Meanwhile, M. de Maisonneuve kept on the defensive. The consciousness that 
on his prudence and judgment the safety of the infant colony depended made him 
careful not to provoke an encounter with the savages. Again and again he resisted 
the demands of the bolder spirits of his small garrison, sensible of the fearful risks of 
their situation, should the Iroquois determine to assail the colony eti masse. Fear- 
less on his own account, he had not dreamed that his policy of self-restraint would 
incur the imputation of lack of courage. But when, after the loss of five of their 
number, the colonists became more and more importunate in their appeals to him to 
lead them against the foe, it began to dawn upon him that his motives were liable to be 
misunderstood, and that the only way to convince the impatient of the wisdom of his 
course was to give them, under his own leadership, an opportunity of testing their 
exuberant bravery. Hitherto, his plans for the protection of the settlement had been 
admirably devised. Those whose duties made it necessary that they should pass daily 
beyond the environs of the Fort had been drilled to set out and return at the sound 
of the bell, so as to guard against surprise from the Indians who were wont to conceal 
themselves in the underwood. Another effective source of protection consisted in a 
number of well-trained dogs, whose instinct enabled them to scent the Iroquois. 

* This first cemetery, a small triangular area of the extremity oi Fointe a Callieres, was used until 
1654, when that of the Hotel-Dieu succeeded it. The reflection that the spot was devoted to such a 
purpose, and that it received the dust and ashes of Ville-Marie's first dead, is another added to the many 
claims wliich this earliest nucleus of their city has upon the people of Montreal. See Bibliography^

The Story of its Foundation. 33> 

Every morning regularly, these sagacious animals, headed by a bitch of rare endow- 
ments, well-named Pilot, formed themselves into a patrol and made a reconnoitring 
tour all over the town. Pilot was a veritable martinet, and allowed no skulking or 
lagging on the part of her canine brigade. Her own young she trained to be genuine 
dogs of war, administering discipline, when they disobeyed orders, by cuffs and bites, 
and never forgetting to punish in due time those who misbehaved while on duty. On 
perceiving any traces of the Iroquois, she turned back promptly and made straight 
for the Fort, uttering her warning bay to intimate that danger was nigh. But even 
the soldierly qualities of Pilot, and the faithful services that she rendered, only made 
the malcontents more dissatisfied, as they saw the honors of war carried off by a dog. 
To no purpose De Maisonneuve counselled delay, representing that they were far too 
few to expose themselves to the multitude of the enemy, by whom a loss that to them 
would be destruction would hardly be felt. At last the governor received a hint that 
his protective policy had been misconstrued, and though to such a man any insinua- 
tion of cowardice could in itself have seemed merely worthy of contempt, it was of 
the utmost importance that no doubt on such a subject should impair his influence 
with his people. He resolved, therefore, to set the question finally at rest by leading 
his ardent militia forth against the foe. The 30th of March, 1644, was a day that the 
colonists had cause to remember long afterwards, for it was then that the champions 
of Montreal had their first serious brush with the Iroquois. The scene, as tradition 
has placed it before us, stands out in such salient contrast to the Montreal of to-day 
that it is not easy to conjure up the picture. The whole stage on which the drama 
was enacted. Fort, town, bush, combatants on both sides, lay well within the limits 
of the present city, and even of its business portion. The dogs howled their deep 
notes of alarm, the soldiers flew to their arms, every loophole in the little fortress was 
manned, and every adit covered with the guns. There stood the governor, cool and 
tranquil as ever, giving his directions for the defence. But suddenly his countenance 
seemed to change, the exultant radiance of the warrior overspread it, the statesman 
was transformed into the soldier. " Yes," he replied to those who clamored for battle, 
" I shall lead you to the fray myself." It was near the close of winter, but the snow 
was still deep ; walking was difficult, and the supply of snow-shoes was defective, but 
De Maisonneuve marshalled his men and made the best of what equipment he had^ 
Leaving M. d'Ailleboust (who had arrived some time before) in command of the Fort, 
M. de Maisonneuve marched out with a company of thirty men against, as we are 
told, from eighty to two hundred Iroquois. The latter, seeing the French issue forth, 
separated into three bands and lay in wait to receive them. The Montrealers soon 
suffered from their ignorance of woodcraft and lack of experience of Indian warfare. 
M. de Maisonneuve's chief trouble was to prevent them exposing themselves to the 
sweeping fire of the savages, by which three were killed and many wounded. At last 
he got them under cover, and they retaliated so vigorously that in a short time their 
ammunition was all spent. Nothing then could save them but a skilful retreat. The 
only path of safety was the traineaii road that had been levelled to cart timber for the 
hospital, and thither M. de Maisonneuve directed his imperilled company. Once 
there, locomotion would be comparatively easy, as snow-shoes would no longer be 
required. In their actual position they were, as an old writer quaintly says, like ill- 
furnished infantry against well-mounted dragoons. The soldiers obeyed those instruc- 
tions readily enough — too readily, indeed, for their withdrawal was much more preci-

pitate than their commander desired, and than became men who had burned so long 
to meet the Iroquois face to face. The consequence was that the cool, courageous 
governor was soon left alone in the presence of the blood-thirsty savages. Armed 
\vi';h two pistols, he kept facing the foe and at the same time retreating. That he 
was in deadly peril, he knew, had the Iroquois aimed only at taking his life. But, as 
the leader of the French nation, they wished to have the satisfaction of taking him 
alive, carrying him home in triumph, and torturing him. They made way for their 
own chief that he might have the distinction of such a capture, and the savage had 
almost effected his purpose, when M. de Maisonneuve turned and fired. The first 
shot missed, a second was more successful, and the third laid the pursuer dead, and 
gave the governor time to escape. For the savages, dreading lest reinforcements 
arriving should wrest the corpse from their possession, gave themselves up to the 
task of rescuing it, and no longer troubled themselves with M. de Maisonneuve. 
Meanwhile, the more hasty flight of his men had very nearly ended in a wholesale 
disaster. For, marking the speed with which they made for the Fort, the guards 
thought they were Indians, and prepared to deal with them as such. One soldier, 
with more dispatch than judgment, attempted to discharge a canon that covered the 
traincau road, to the imminent jeopardy of the approaching fugitives who looked for a 
very difterent reception. Happily dampness prevented the fuse igniting; otherwise 
a most deplorable catastrophe would have closed that eventful day. One important 
result of that first engagement was that thereafter the cautious policy of M. de Mai- 
sonneuve was never called in question. A great historian has well said, in connection 
with this event, that " Samuel de Champlain and Chomedy de Maisonneuve are among 
the names that shine with a fair and honest lustre on the infancy of nations." 

As the area of habitation enlarged, fresh means of protection were constantly 
required. Like the Israelites of old, they held their building implements in one hand, 
their weapons of warfare in the other. Already in 1643 the limits of the Fort were 
found too narrow to accommodate the garrison and the settlers. A hospital and 
attached chapel were then erected, and surrounded with walls, pierced by loopholes, 
and strong enough to resist the attacks of the savages, which were renewed every 
spring. The tillers of the soil were constant objects of violence or treachery. In 
1648, a now redoubt was constructed to the south of the fort, which was to serve as 
amill and post of observation. In 1651, M. de Maisonneuve marked out a common 
for the grazing of cattle, an arpent broad and forty arpents long, extending along the 
river, where we now find Commissioners and Common streets, the latter, rue de la 
Commune, preserving the record of the event. The area in question was gradually 
resumed into the domain of the state, to be built upon as the needs of the citizens and 
the requirements of the harbor demanded. In 1652, Lambert Closse, lieutenant of 
De Maisonneuve, with certain followers, exterminated a band of Iroquois not far 
from the foot of the present McGill street, and repulsed another band at Point St. 
Charles, where a redoubt had been built. 

From that date the erection of houses advanced rapidly. In 1654, Sister Bour- 
geois, the founder of the Congregation^ again set up on the mountain the cross which 
had been destroyed, whether by frost or by the Iroquois. At the same time a new 
cemetery was marked out, where the Piace d'Armes is to-day. In 1656, the corner 
stone of a large church was laid near the cemetery, and a redoubt was built at the 

The Story of its Foundation. 35 

-corner of Notre Dame and St. Denis streets, to protect the workmen on the Coteau 
St. Louis, the name of which is still preserved in St. Louis street and ward. 

In 1657, Sister Bourgeois commenced building the church of Notre Dame de 
Bonsecours, and in the following year M. de Maisonneuve gave her the ground to 
build a school, which was taken possession of on the 30th of April, the day of St. 
Catherine of Sienna. It was also in the year 1657 that the first Sulpicians arrived. 
They were lodged in the hospital buildings. At the same time a new redoubt was 
erected at the extremity of St. Louis Coteau, where Dalhousie square now is. Later, 
it was augmented and furnished with bastions and intrenchments, and was called the 

In 1659, there were forty well built houses, isolated from each other, with thick 
walls and loop-holes, but close enough for defence in case of attack. By this time 
the bastions of the early Fort had suffered so much from the spring ice and floods 
as to be practically of little use. The Fort itself served still as a residence for the 
governor. Three new redoubts were built in this year — that of Ste. Marie, at the 
foot of the current which bears that name ; that of St. Gabriel, so called by Abbe 
Queylus in honor of his patron saint; and, thirdly, to the north, in the St. Lawrence 
suburbs, another still, given by M, de Maisonneuve to his lieutenant, Lambert Closse, 
which stood where the Montreal General Hospital now stands. Each of these 
redoubts had crenelated walls for the defence of the workmen's lodges and the 
buildings attached to them. Closse himself left the Fort and went to live with the 
men in the redoubt which he had built, from which point of vantage he was able to 
.guard all the northern part of the city. 

A letter from M. d'Argenson describes the city as it was in those early and trying 
years: "I must," that gentleman writes, "give you some account of Montreal, of 
which place so much noise is made, although it is in itself but a small concern. I 
speak of what I know, as I was there this spring, and can assure you that if I were a 
painter I would not take long to depict it. Montreal is an island, rather difficult to 
land on, even in a boat, on account of the great currents of the St. Lawrence, espe- 
cially at about a league down the river. There is a port where the boats land, but it 
is falling in ruins. They have begun a redoubt and a mill on an advantageous rising 
ground, for the defence of the habitation. There are about forty houses, almost all 
in sight of each other, and, in that respect, well situated for defence." 

In 1660, Mademoiselle Mance asked M. de Maisonneuve for permission to build a 
stone barn of sixty by thirty feet in the interior of the fort, to guard the crops. At 
this time the Iroquois were very formidable, making frequent raids, as if they had 
resolved on the extermination of the French. Nevertheless, so watchful was the 
governor and so well-laid were his plans, that very few of the farmers fell victims to 
their attacks. Considerable progress had already been made in the establishment of 
Domaines and seigneuries around the city^ which also served as vanguards for its 
defence. On the River St. Pierre was a fief of three hundred arpents, granted to 
Major Dupuy (whose family is still represented in the country). It was he who took 
Major Closse's place in the task of defence at the St. Lambert mill. The concession- 
naire had to erect a redoubt and workmen's buildings on. his land. Several fiefs were 
also distributed on the left bank of the St. Lawrence — that of Lachine to La Salle \ 
that of Gentilly, of the Courselles islands and the Bay d'Urfe, so called from Abbe 
d'Urfe, the missionary there. Towards the Lake of Two Mountains was the fief of 

36 Historical Sketch of Montreal 


Boisbriant, and, returning by the north, other fiefs granted to different officers. 
Finally, on the River Des Prairies, there were two fiefs named after Messieurs de 
Corion and de Merely given to those officers for the protection of the island on that 
side, and to prevent the savages that came by L'Assomption River from landing. 

In succeeding years both sides of the river became occupied. M. de Laubia, of 
the de Broglie regiment, obtained two leagues of front and depth on Lake St. Peter; 
his sergeant, Labadie, the neighboring district; and Sieur de Moras, the island at the 
mouth of Nicolet River. M. de Normanville was given land nearer Montreal. 
Seigneuries were constituted at La Valtrie, de Repentigny, de Berthelot, as rewards to 
officers in the employ of Government. That was to fortify the north side. On the 
south, defence was still more needed on account of the Iroquois, who were constantly 
descending the Richelieu to attack Quebec, Montreal and Three Rivers. Large 
concessions for that purpose were made to M. de Berthier, captain in the Carignan 
regiment— the land opposite the Richelieu, which still baars his nam.% being the por- 
tion allotted to him; while to M. du Pas was granted the island still so called. To 
M. de Sorel was conceded all the land on both sides of the Richelieu for two leagues 
m depth ; the rest of the river land being given to Messieurs St. Ours — one a captain, 
the other an ensign of the Carignan regiment. M. de Chambly received the fort of 
St. Louis and all the lands adjacent, and lands were also given to Messieurs de Contre- 
coeur, de Varennes, de Boisbriant, Boucher de Boucherville, etc. 

M. Charles Le Moyne received lands situated between the Seigneurie of M. de 
Boucher and the Seigneurie of La Prairie, granted to the Jesuit Fathers. The name 
of Longueuil was given it from the name of a seigneurie near Dieppe. Beyond La. 
Prairie he obtained a large grant which he called Chateauguay, a name which it still 
bears. All these fiefs were settled by soldiers belonging to the companies of the officers 
who obtained them, and became the nuclei of towns and villages of importance, such 
as Sorel, Chambly, Berthier, St. Ours, Contrecoeur, Vercheres, La Valtrie, Varennes, 
Boucherville, Longueuil, La Prairie, Chateauguay, etc. 

Meanwhile, as the surrounding country was being thus partitioned, and what 
was virtually a chain of garrisons was being established for its defence, it became 
necessary to draw up a plan of the city itself, for the guidance of those erecting build- 
ings. The delicate task fell to M. DoUier de Casson, superior of the Seminary of St. 
Sulpice. ^\\t proces-verbal,i\xdc\\\\ up in 1672, gives the following particulars: — 

In the first place, M. Dollier de Casson traced through the centre of Ville Marie a 
long main street, to which he gave the name of Notre Dame, in honor of the blessed 
patroness of the city. Parallel thereto he drew a line, to which he gave the name of 
St. James street, in honor of the Rev. Jacques Olier, with whom the idea of the colony 
originated. On the other side of Notre Dame, and close to the river, stretched St. 
Paul street, so named from the founder Paul Chomedy de Maisonneuve. At right 
angles to these three principal streets extended several others — St. Peter, in honor of 
the Prince of the Apostles, and as a compliment to M. de Fancamp, one of the found- 
ers; St. Francois, in honor of the patron saint of M. Dollier de Casson himself; and 
St. Joseph, in honor of the pious husband of the Virgin Mary. St. Lambert was the 
fourth of these transverse streets, and so called after Captain Lambert Closse, already 
mentioned, lieutenant of M. de Maisonneuve, who was slain in an encounter with the 
Iroquois. Another was called St. Gabriel, in remembrance of M. Gabriel de Queylus 
and M. Gabriel Souart, his successor. The street called St. Jean Baptiste, which 

Montreal: 1642-1891. 37 

probably dates from about the same time, was at once a mark of reverence to Canada's 
great patron an.d an indication of esteem toward the ilkistrious Colbert who did so 
much for the colony. Another of those early streets was named St. Charles in con- 
sideration of M. Charles Le Moyne, who had rendered distinguished services to the 
colony, and had his residence on the site of the present Bonsecours market. 

The city was thus for the most part an elevated plateau, in the shape of a parallel- 
ogram of about a mile and a half long, and about a-third of a mile in breadth . On 
the one side it had the river ; while the rest was almost encircled by a deep natural 
entrenchment, through which flowed a stream, that emptied itself into the St. Law- 
rence, and was susceptible, if necessary, of enlargement for defensive purposes. This 
stream had its course in part where Craig street is to-day. 

Montreal: 1642-1891. 

The Fort constructed by M. de Maisonneuve was mainly of wood. Not far 
from it stood the first mill used by the colonists. As the population increased, new 
structures became necessary, and before the close of the 17th century the city 
between Craig street and the river had taken the form which is still largely preserved. 
Dalhousie square is the site of the new mill and battery erected about 1682, Early in 
the 1 8th century it was deemed advisable to fortify the city by the traditional plan 
of circumvallation, and 300,000 livres were granted for the purpose by the King of 
France — arrangements being, however, made for the gradual payment of half the 
amount by the Seigneurs (the Seminary) and inhabitants. In the report which he 
forwarded to France in 1717, M. Chaussegros de Lery, to whom the task had been 
entrusted, described Montreal as a city of three-quarters of a league in circumference, 
but without any proper protection, the old enclosure being in a ruinous condition. 
His recommendation was to erect such a wall as would be capable of resisting 
English artillery. The revetment must be at least three feet thick, and a ditch would 
also be necessary. He began the work on the Lachine Gate, as being the side most 
exposed to attack. Though a start had been made with this system of fortifications 
before the close of 1717, nothing of much importance was effected until 1721. After 
that date, notwithstanding occasional interruptions from various causes, the work of 
strengthening the city was persevered in until it was a /aif accompli. Fortification 
lane is an extant memorial of the Montreal of the great wars of the i8th century. 
Although the testimony of travellers and the opinion of experts leave the una- 
voidable impression that Montreal, as fortified by Chaussegros de Lery's plans, was a 
city of considerable strength, its defences proved of little avail in the hour of trial. 
On the 8th of September, 1760, it passed quietly into the hands of the British, and a 
few years later EngUsh merchants were doing business within its limits as though it 
had never changed its allegiance. 

The hundred and eighteen years that elapsed between the arrival of De Maison- 
neuve and the capitulation of the city to General Amherst, were in many ways event- 
ful. About half this period might be assigned as the heroic age of Montreal. It 
comprises the early struggles with the insidious Iroquois, the story of Bollard's 
devotion, of the dreadful massacre of Lachine, of the inception of those daring enter- 
prises of exploration which were ultimately to find their diverse goals in the Pacific, 

Montreal: 1642-1891. 

the Gulf of Mexico and the Arctic Ocean. Then, too, were initiated those great 
religious, educational and charitable projects, the memory of which is cherished in 
many a hallowed spot wiihin and without the line of the ancient walls. Then, too, 
was begun the crusade against intemperance among the Indians and that traffic 
which made them fiends, while zealous priests were striving to make them Christians. 
It was also the age of the coureurs des bois, tiie bushrangers, whose exploits are so 
romantic to read about, though they caused sorrow to many a home and were the 
object of many a weighty censure from the Church. 

By the close of the 17 th century a marked change began to be observable in the 
social, industrial and commercial conditions of the city. The system of government 
was already established and justice was regularly administered. While Colbert was in 
power, earnest efforts had been made to promote colonization, agriculture, manufac- 
tures and commerce, and although in 1701 the entire population, even including 
Acadia, did not reach 20,000 souls, so many outposts had been occupied that the 
possibilities of development were obvious to the far-seeing statesman. Iron-works, 
tanneries, shipbuilding, and other industries had been started, and there was a con- 
siderable trade with the Mother Country and the West Indies. Montreal had a 
share in this various progress — small, indeed, compared with its relative rank as a 
centre of business in later generations, but still sufficient to indicate what, under 
favorable circumstances, it was destined to become. 

The erection of the improved fortifications, the nature and extent of which 
have just been outlined, show to what degree the authorities had recognized its advan- 
tages. Though Quebec, in point of population, and as the metropolis and chief 
garrison of the colony, as well as from its readier access to visitors from Europe, took 
precedence during the whole period of French rule, and for a considerable time after 
the Cession, the situation of Montreal clearly pointed it out as the great cnirepot 
between the East and West. In that sense, the naming of Lachine (China) was one 
of those unconscious prophecies which are sometimes met with in the pages of history. 
At the time of its occupation by the British forces it contained thirty-two streets 
and four lanes. Notre Dame street was then the aristocratic quarter. The parish 
church marked its centre. The Court house and civic offices were nearly opposite 
the Seminary, at the corner of St.Frangois Xavier street. The Jesuits' establishment 
was nearly on the site of the present Court house. The old Bonsecours Church, 
which had been burned in 1754, had not yet been replaced by the new one erected 
in 1771-73. The Recollet church, with the adjoining monastery and garden, was con- 
spicuous in the area between Lemoine and Notre Dame streets, — the intervening 
Recollet street bearing witness to the fact. The citadel stood on Dalhousie square. 
Not far off" a portion of M. de Lery's walls remained standing until 188 r, when it was 
removed to make room for the Canadian Pacific Railway Station. The Chateau de 
Ramezay, now occupied by Laval University, is one of the most remarkable relics 
of old Montreal. It was built as long ago as 1704, and was long the centre of fashion 
and official distinction under the a'lcien regime. It is also noteworthy as havmg 
sheltered Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Chase and Charles Carroll of CarroUtown, when 
these celebrated men came here as emissaries from Congress to allure the Canadians 
from their allegiance to King George. 

Montreal owes its present architectural splendor very largely to devastating fires. 
Both before and after the capitulation, it was often the scene of holocausts that 

Montreal: 1642-1891. 

attracted attention in Europe as well as on this Continent. In 1765 a great part of it 
fell a prey to the flames, owing to the greed and carelessness of one Livingston. Jonas 
Hanway, the philanthropist, headed a subscription in England for the relief of the 
sufferers. A more handsome and flourishing city rose above the ruins of the destroyed 
buildings. Three years later, another fire swept away a hundred houses, and 
before the new regime had lasted for a quarter of a century, the appearance of Mont- 
real had been materially transformed. The year 1774 is a critical year in the history of 
Canada and of all North America. It worked the inception of a new era — that of the 
Quebec Act, which assured to the King's new subjects the free exercise of their religion 
and the practice of their civil law, and also created a legislative council. It had hardly 
gone into force when Montreal was occupied by the invading army of Congress. On 
the 1 2th of November, 1775, the citizens saw the alien foe approaching their gates, and 
as no resistance was possible, Montgomery and his troops were admitted on the 
following day. On the departure of that ofticer for Quebec, where he was repulsed and 
met his death, Wooster, who had been left in com;nand at Montreal, subjected the 
inhabitants to vexatious petty tyrannies, from which they were glad to be delivered in 
the ensuing summer. The presence of the Americans in the city had one important 
result — the foundation of a newspaper, the Montreal Gazette, which still flourishes after 
a hundred and twelve years of existence. The idea originated with Joseph Fleury de 
Mesplet, whom Franklin had brought with him to serve as an intermediary with the 
French Canadians, and who, when his master's mission failed, cast in his lot with the 
people whom he could not convert. The American Revolution had grave conse- 
quences in which Montreal shared to some extent. It caused an influx of manv 
thousands of loyalists, who, having lost home and property in their native land, were 
given an asylum in Canada, to which their advent brought a material increase of 
population. Most of them settled in Western Canada and the Maritime Provinces, 
but a considerable proportion chose the Quebec and Montreal districts for their per- 
manent residence. In 1 791 the province of Quebec was divided by the Constitutional 
Act into Upper and Lower Canada, each with its own legislature. 

In the following year the bounds of the city underwent considerable enlarge- 
ment. In population it had already taken precedence of all other cities in Canada. 
Beyond the walls towards the mountain there was a considerable number of villas 
with spacious gardens and orchards. The seigneurs and other gentry had capacious 
stone-built houses, and how well the merchant princes of those days lived and fared we 
know from abundant testimony of travellers. Some of the wealthiest of them were Nor'- 
Westers. " Our dinner," writes a guest of one of these magnates, " was excellent 
served in sumptuous style. We had soup, salmon, roast beef and mutton, geese, ducks, 
and pigeons, plum pudding, pies and tarts, biscuits and butter, brought from the Grand 
Portage at the head of Lake Superior, several kinds of English cheese, and a dessert of 
various kinds of foreign and domestic fruit. Our liquors were London porter 
bottled cider, strong ale, Madeira^ port, claret and Champagne wines." The same 
writer refers to his host's " extensive and well-managed garden, in which were not only 
to be seen all the plants usually found in gardens here, but many exotics. Those of 
milder climates are preserved in a green house. Peach and other fruit trees are 
protected from the rigor of winter by a wall." Belonging to the same establishment 
was " an aviary well stocked, as also deer, rabbits and other animals tamed, with 
many curiosities in and about the house, which render it an interesting place to an 

40 Montreal: 1642-1891. 

inquisitive mind." Of the prospect from the mountain he writes that it is " exceed- 
ingly picturesque and grand," and that " luxuriant and well cultivated fields extend 
to the city." 

Testimony of this kind to the social habits of well-to-do people in Montreal a 
hundred years ago could be multiplied from the works of travellers. Nor are we 
without indications of other phases of life at that period. In 1783 a lottery was 
established for the purpose of raising money to build a new gaol — the tickets being sold 
for 46s. 8d., and the prizes ranging from .£8 5s. to £4. The magistrates issued strict 
injunctions for keeping the streets in order. Every householder had to keep "free 
from filth, mud, dirt, rubbish, straw or hay " one-half of the street opposite his own 
house. The " cleanings " were to be deposited on the beach. Stray pigs could be kept 
by the finder, if no one turned up to claim them in twenty-four hours, and, on mak- 
ing himself known, the owner had to pay a fine of los. For a stray horse the penalty 
was 5s. 'Ilie carters were obliged to keep the markets clean. The regulations for 
vehicles, slaughter-houses, side-walks, etc., were equally strict. Keepers of inns 
and taverns had to light the streets. Every one entering the town in a sleigh had 
to carry a shovel with him to level the cahots at any distance within three leagues of 
the city limits. The rates for cabs and ferry-boats were fixed with much precision. 
No carter was allowed to plead a prior engagement, but had to go with the person 
who first asked him, under a penalty of twenty shillings. 

Opportunities for intellectual improvement were not wanting. Montreal had a 
public library before the iSth century came to an end, and some of the books 
that formed part of it may still be seen in the Eraser Institute. 

Reference has already been made to the extensive fires which, at successive 
epochs, swept so much of old Montreal out of existence, and thus furnished an oppor- 
tunity of building abetter class of houses on the devastated areas. On the 26th of 
January, 1819, a great fire broke out in a store-house of pork belonging to Mr. 
t). W. Eager, and situated near the site of the present Custom house. When the 
fire brigade (then a volunteer body) arrived on the spot, the flames had gained the 
mastery of the upper part of the building, and all efforts to save it were paralyzed for 
want of water. It was impossible to break the thick ice on the river in time to be of 
any service, and so, though there was a multitude of willing helpers on the spot, they 
could render no effectual aid. Just then the happy thought occurred to Mr. Corse to 
attack the destroyer with snowballs. No sooner said than done. In five minutes 
a perfect fusillade from hundreds of brawny arms had smothered the fire with snow, 
iwhich, melting, extinguished the flames. In that way some 800 barrels of pork were 
saved from premature and profitless consumption. Already steps had been taken to 
remedy the great inconvenience consequent on a deficient supply of water, and in 
April, 1 801, an act was passed by the Legislature, constituting Joseph Frobisher and 
others a company, which bore the name of " Proprietors of the Montreal Water 
Works." It was the starting point of the grand organization which still bears that 

As has already been mentioned, it was not long after the foundation of the city 
that attention was called, in a very practical manner, to its liability to devastating 
floods. But although from time to time the city suffered materially from this source, 
it was not until recently that decisive and effective protective measures were determined 
on. This subject is closely connected with that of harbor improvement and the removal 

Montreal: 1642-1891. 41 

of obstructions to navigation in Lake St. Peter channel. With these developments 
the commercial growth of Montreal has been intimately associated. No city in the 
world has proved more alive to ail the great advances in every department of com- 
merce consequent on the application of steam to the movement of vessels. The 
first attempt to utilize the discovery on our great central waterway was made in 1809 
by the late Hon. John Molson. More than forty years intervened between that exper- 
iment and the establishment of a line of steamships to effect regular communication 
with Europe. Once this latter enterprise was fairly launched, the progress achieved 
was remarkable, and to-day Montreal's great ocean lines are among the finest, 
best equipped and most trustworthy in the world. Still inore signal has been the 
extension of Montreal's opportunities for intercourse by means of railways with the 
rest of the world. Only those who can recall the day of small things, and can follow 
stage by stage in their memories the successive triumphs of the last half century, can 
realize what in this direction have been the gains of Montreal. The opening of the 
St. Lawrence and Atlantic road in 1851, for a distance of less than a hundred miles, 
was deemed an event of sufficient importance to justify the rejoicings of the entire 
community. In 1891, there is no point from the Eastern to the Western ocean, or 
from the sub-arctic north to the Gulf of Mexico, with which the city is not in com- 
munication, while mercantile fleets have placed it in comparative proximity to the 
very " ends of the earth." In solidity and beauty, in all that makes a great business 
centre an enjoyable dwelling-place, Montreal has at the same time been making wel- 
come progress. The cemeteries, which were once within the city limits, are now some 
miles beyond it, and are laid out with a skill and taste which rob them of all but the 
tenderest associations. In their stead, gardens and squares afford pleasure grounds 
and breathing spaces to the inhabitants, while the Island and Mountain Parks are 
among the most deservedly admired of such attractive areas on this continent. At 
this moment a scheme of street enlargement and multifarious improvement is in 
course of being carried out, which, when completed, will make Montreal second, for 
architectural splendor and broad, well paved thoroughfares, to no city in the world. 
The suburbs are gradually embracing the most picturesque and desirable portions of 
the island, within a circuit of from five to seven miles, and ultimately, doubtless, the 
entire insular domain for which, in olden time-, the Superiors of Saint Sulpice ren- 
dered homage, will be conterminous with the city. 

To attempt, in this brief survey, to describe any of Montreal's great edifices 
would be vain, as to comprehend them all would be impossible, and to particularize 
a few where so many are deserving of praise would be invidious. The Roman 
Catholic institutions of the city would require a volume rather than a sketch for 
worthy treatment, while the later Protestant churches, colleges, schools and houses 
of charity would demand no less attention. Notre Dame, Our Lady of Lourdes, 
the Grey Nuns' Convent, St. Peter's, the Seminary, the Hotel-Dieu, the Gesu, among 
the former, and the Anglican Cathedral, St. James the Apostle, St. Paul's, St. James 
Methodist Church, McGill College, the Mackay Institute for Deaf-Mutes, and the 
General Hospital, among the latter, are among the edifices which will repay inspection. 
Mention has already been made of the Bonsecours Church. As holding the same 
venerable repute among Protestant places of worship, the St. Gabriel Street (Kirk 
of Scotland) church (now disused for congregational purposes) ought not to be for- 
gotten. The history of old St. Gabriel, by the Rev. Robert Campbell, is, moreover, 

42 Montreal: 1642-1891. 

a thesaurus of manifold information, touching the early religious and social history 
of the English-speaking section of the population. The records of education in 
Montreal cover nearly a quarter of a millennium; the history of public instruction, 
as a department of state administration, is, however, confined within half a century. 
It has been a time of progress in which all the inhabitants have shared, and a visit to 
the handsome school buildings erected by the Roman Catholic and J'rotestant 
Commissioners, as well as to the Normal Schools (Jacques Cartier and McGill) for 
the training of teachers, not to speak of special institutions (as the Ecole Poly- 
technique, etc.), will show that Montreal does not in this phase of development lag 
behind the other great cities of the world. 

There is one cluster of buildings to which the eye of the stranger on his way 
round or up the mountain is sure to be attracted, — those which were erected in 
view of a regular annual exhibition. For a number of years, while its facilities were 
much less perfect than they are to-day for such a purpose, Montreal had its yearly 
industrial and agricultural fair. Through whatever cause or causes the interruption 
occurred, it is to be hoped that the efforts recently made to revive this important 
institution will prove successful. More especially is it to be hoped that the year 
1892, in which Montreal will have completd a quarter of a millennium of history as 
habitation of civilized people, will not be allowed to pass without worthy recognition. 

The Government of Montreal has undergone frequent changes. Under the Old 
Regime it was placed in charge of governors, some of whom asserted, if they did 
not succeed in exercising, a certain independence. The following is a list of these 
functionaries from 1642 to the close of French rule : — 

Paul de Chomedey, Sieur de Maisonneuve.

Zachaiie Dupuis. 
Dominique de Lamothe, Sieur de Lucieie 

et de Saint-Paul.

Dubois Berthelot, Chevalier de Beaucourt. 

J. B. Roch de Ramezay, Charles LeMoyne, 

3rd Baton de Longueuil. 
Pierre de Rigaud de Vaudreuil, brother of 

the Governor-General.* 

The system of local governors was continued for some years after the establish- 
ment of British rule, Brigadier-General Gage being appoii.ted by His Excellency, 
General Murray, as first English governor of Montreal and the suirounding district. 
He was succeeded by Col. Burton. In 1764, Civil Goveriimtni succeeded 10 the 
Regime Militaire, and Courts of Justice were establishtd to sit regularly. The trial 
of the persons accused of attempting to assassinate Mr. Thomas Walker, ijne of His 
Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the Montreal District, in December of thai year, 
the documents of which have been preserved among our archives, lets in considerable 
light on the political and social condition of Montreal at tiiat early period ot British 
administration. From lists prepared by Governor Murray, registers of births, 
marriages and deaths by Anglican clergymen, the names of jurors and signers of

petitions and other sources of knowledge, it is evident that soon after the capitulation 
of the city there must have been a considerable influx of British subjects from the 
other colonies and from the Mother Country. In these documents, moreover, are 
found the names of several persons who were destined to rise to })Ositions of influence 
in later years. Early numbers of the Quebec and Montreal Gazettes convey a good 
deal of interesting information, regarding the course of events from the inception of 
Civil Government till the division of the province into Upper and Lower Canada. 

* From the year 1796 to the year 1833, the municipal affairs of Montreal were 
administered by Justices of the Peace sitting in special sessions for that purpose. In 
1832 the city was incorporated (ist William IV., chap. 59), and to that end was 
divided into eight wards : East, West, St. Ann, St. Joseph, St. Antoine, St. Lawrence, 
St. Louis and St. Mary. The first meeting of the Corporation was held on the 5th of 
June, 1833. On that occasion Jacques Viger, Esquire, was elected mayor, an office 
which he continued to hold until the new incorporation of 1840. The Corporation of 
1840 was appointed by the GDvernor-General for a term wnich was to expire in 
December, 1842. Their successors were to be elected by the people. 

From 1840 till 1852, the mayors were (with the exception of the Hon. Mr^ 
McGill in 1840) chosen by the Council. By the Act 14 and 15 Vic, cap. 128, passed 
on the 31st of August, 185 1, the election of the city's chief magistrate was committed 
to the citizens.

For the benefit of those who wish to enter into a minute study of the liistory of 
Montreal, it has been thought well to append to this sketch a brief bibliography of 
the subject. Like all bibliographies, it is only tentative. It has not been thought 
necessary to include histories of Canada, and other works, of which the authors of 
Ihe books cited must have availed themselves. For information as to the industrial 
and commercial development of Montreal, especially in recent years, many pub- 
lications of a special character (such as Board of Trade Reports, etc.) would have 
to be consulted, while many excellent articles as to other phases of its progress 
are to be found in the contributions to periodicals and newspapers.

Montreal is the commercial Capital of Canada and the most populous City (211,302) of the 
Dominion. It is situated at the head of Sea or outward Navigation, and at the foot of the great chain 
of River, Lake and Canal Navigation which extends westward to Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, 
Niagara, Buffalo, Detroi:, Chicago and Duluth, embracing an almost unequalled extent of inland 
water communication. It occupies one of the most commanding positions in the Dominion, and 
it is on a large fertile and beautiful island of the same name, 30 miles in length by 10 miles of 
extreme breadth, formed by the confluence of the Ottawa and St. Lawrence Rivers, and on the 
north bank of the latter, thus situated near the junction of two important rivers, with a free 
communication seawards, though 70 miles above the influence of the tides, and 300 miles from 
salt water. Montreal possesses all the advantages of both an inland city and a seaport, accessible 
to seagoing steamships of over 5000 tons burthen. Holding, too, as it were, the navigation 
of the Canals and Lakes of the West, of the far west, makes it the greater centre of attraction and 
the Commercial Emporium of the Dominion. The City is the chief seat of manufacturing operations 
in costly establishments, the prod actions of which will compare favorably with those of other 
cities. Among the daily increasing and prosperous undertakings are : 

227 factories, employing 2996 hands ; 36 foundries, employing 1028 hands ; 77 manufactories, 
employing I084 hands ; 43 mills, employing 757 hands. Other branches will be given in this Report, 
It may be stated that an average of 107 Railway Passenger cars, 28 Sleepers, 720 Freight and 
Cattle cars, arrive daily at the several railway stations. 

During navigation 624 Ocean Steamships arrived in the Port of Montreal, the arrivals for last 
season being 746. During same season 252 Gulf and River Steamers and 5,162 Inland craft, having 
966,959 tons burthen, arrived in Port : also 122 sailing ships, barques, brigs, brigantines and schooners 
arrived in Port of Montreal, from the Atlantic Ocean. 

The wharves are on the eve of extensive and wonderful ameliorations to meet urgent business 
demands. The City and suburbs are fully and beautifully lit with gas and numerous electric lights. 

Peace, happiness and prosperity abound, and brotherly love forms a link that might be prized in 
any city. The policeman is seldom needed. Intemperance is becoming a thing of the past. 

Montreal has magnificent Water Works, The water is taken from the St Lawrence, a mile and 
a half above the Lachine Rapids, and conducted a distance of five miles through an open canal to a 
spacious basin, where it is, by powerful and costly machinery, forced up through the pumping main 
two miles and three-quarters in length, to reservoirs on the brow of the Mountain, capable of con- 
taining fifteen million gallons. This great work was undertaken and successfully completed by our 
eminent Civil Engineer, Thomas C. Keeper. Everything connected with it is kept in admirable 
order. Our active firemen can always depend on the extensive mains for a plentiful supply, which 
enables them to combat successfully and speedily accidental fires. 

Our "Father of Waters," the St Lawrence, is spanned by the Victoria Bridge, the most co.stly 
and magnificent work of the kind ever erected, with its two long abutments and twenty-four piers of 
solid masonry ; this great tubular bridge of iron stands a monument of engineermg skill, and places 
the name of its eminent engineer, Robert Stephenson, foremost in the ranks of Civil Engineers, 
The total length of the bridge is 9,184 lineal feet, with 24 spans of 242 feet each, and one (the central 
tube, which is 60 feet above highwater) of 330 feet. The first stone of this great work was laid on 
the 20th July, 1854, and the first passenger train of the Grand Trunk Railway Company passed 
through it on the 17th December, 1859. The Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge at Lachine is another 
connecting link between Montreal and the South shore. It connects the Pacific system with the Eastern 
States, with connections to the sea by way of Halifax and St John. These great enterprises and 
similar undertakings have placed Canada in a proud and prosperous position before our beloved 
Mother Country and the outside world. 

Montreal has 51 avenues, 2 hills, 41 lanes, 2 parks, 5 places, 4 roads, i row, 12 squares, 381 streets, 
3 terraces, i track ; 34,455 houses : 25,774 brick, 81 dashed, 5482 stone, 3118 wooden. 

Montreal is distant from Quebec 172 miles, from Berthier 58, from Chambly 12, from Frelighsburg 
62, from Melbourne 77, from Richmond 76, from Sherbrooke 10 1, from St Johns 27, from Three Rivers 
86, from Ottawa 120, from Toronto 333, from Halifax 758, from Fredericton 437, from Charlottetown 
692, from Winnipeg 1423, from Victoria 2990, from Regina 1779 ; from Boston 334, from New York 
400, from Chicago 845, from Liverpool 2750 miles. Population 211,302. 




The Cily of Montreal was incorporated in 1832. It embraces an area of about 6,000 acres, 
•divided into 13 wards, each returning three members to the City Council. The Mayor is elected by 
the suffrages of the citizens generally ; and the terms of office are one year for the Mayoralty and 
three years for the Aldermen (one for each ward retiring annually). 

The assessed value of its real estate approaches $125,000,000, of which over $20,000,000 is 
exempted under the following heads : — 

Government property $3,000,000 | Benevolent Institutions — all others .$i,8oo,cco 

Municipal " 5,000,000 Churches and Parsonages — Roman Catholic. 2,000,000 

Benevolent Institutions— Roman Catholic 5,700,000 " " — all others i,6oo,cco 

Special Business exemptions 900,000 ) 

The valuations are made annually by a Board of Assessors, who visit every property for that 
purpose; and while the law directs the appraisement to be made at the actual market value, it is 
generally conceded to average about twenty per cent, under actual selling prices. 

The rate of annual assessment is one par cent, on value, with an additional one fifth of one per cent, 
for School Tax, which is levied and collected by the City but handed over to the School Commissioners, 
a body appointed by the Local Government and the City jointly, for administration. In addition to this 
one and one-fifth per cent, on Realty, there is a Water Rate, based on a sliding scale, which approximates 
7^ per cent, on annual rental values, and an assessment of seven and one-half per cent, on the rental of 
all business premises, which is known as the " Business Tax," beside specific licences on certain trades 
or professions and the usual taxes on horses, carriages, dogs, etc., which come under the head of 
"Personal Taxes." The City also derives a considerable revenue from its Markets, and from penalties 
imposed by the Recorder's Court. Street improvements are paid for by assessments on the parties 
benefitted, as determined by Commissioners appointed by the Courts ; except in special cases where 
the City bears a portion of the expense. Drains are charged against the properties which they pass 
(^ on each side), with the exception of main sewers, of which the greater part of the cost is defrayed 
from the general funds of the City: abutting properties being charged the proportion of a small sewer 

The present revenue from all sources is about $2,225,000, and the following figures will illustrate 
the more recent progress of the City :

The annual appropriations for the administration of the City's affairs are based on the actual 
receipts of each preceding year ; five per cent, being reserved for unforeseen expenditure. Provision for 
the interest on its funded debt is made, by law, the first charge on its revenue. 

The debt of the City, which is limited to 15 per cent, of the assessed value of its Real Estate, is now 
about $16,000,000, of which more than one-half is represented by bond fide assets in the shape of Water 
Works, Markets, Fire and Police Stations, City Hall, etc., which yield a revenue, directly or indi- 
rectly, equal to the interest on that portion of the debt ; while its Parks, though non-revenue 
producing, are none the less bond fide assets of immense and ever-increasing value. 

The credit of the City stands so high that it has been able to float its loans on the London nconey 
markets at prices comparing favorably with Government securities ; and at the present day it is obtain- 
ing funds for its permanent improvements on inscribed, transferable stock at an interest cost of less 
than 3I per cent, per annum.

In order justly to appreciate tlie present importance of the PORT OF Montreal, it is necessary to 
consider from what a small beginning, and with what rapid strides, Montreal has risen to its present 
rank amongst the Cities of the World. 

According to Garneau's History of Canada, there were only 584 persons in Montreal in the year 
1666 ; and in 1734 the whole population of Canada, of European descent, amounted to 37,633 souls ; but, 
in 1851, there were, according to the Census of that year, 57,715 souls in Montreal alone. In 1861 the 
number had increased to 90,323, in 1871 to 107,225, and in 1881 to 140,747 — a gain, in these successive 
decades, of respectively 56,15 and 31 per cent. Elsewhere in these pages will appear the advancement 
within the last decade. As early as 186 1 Montreal held the tenth place among the Cities of North 
America, as shown by the following table : 



New York 8i4,2;7 St. Louis 162,179 

Philadelphia 568,034 , Cincinnati 160,060 

Brooklyn 273,425 | Chicago 109,420 

Baltimore 214,037 j Montreal 101,602 

Boston 177,902 I , Buffalo 81,132 

New Orleans 170,766 ' 

Montreal was merely an outport of Quebec until 1832, when it was constituted a Port of Entry. 

In the year 1800, the number of vessels cleared at the Port of Quebec was 64, and their total ton- 
nage was 14,293 tons. They carried 20,271 barrels of flour, 217,128 bushels of wheat, 3,512 bushels 
of peas, 1 ,555 bushels of barley, and 6,896 bushels of oats. 

In 1816, the number of vessels cleared had risen to 288, and their total tonnage to 61,2 11. 

On the 17th of February of the following year (1817), as appears by the journals of the House of 
Parliament of Lower Canada, one Frangois Page petitioned the House, representing that he had, 
after a long time, perfected a machine (steamboat) for navigating the St. Lawrence and other rivers ; 
and, considering the inclination of the House to reward public benefactors, he prayed to be granted the 
exclusive right to build and use such machines (steamboats) built upon the said model, which petition 
was deemed of so much importance, that the late Andrew Stuart, by command of the Governor, stated 
to the House that His E.xcellency, having been informed of the purport of the Petition, gave his consent 
to doing therewith as the House should see fit. 

On the 28th day of the same month (February, 1817), John Goudie represented to the House 
that two American steamboats occasionally ran into that part of Lake Champlain which lies in Cana- 
dian territory, and successfully competed for Canadian trade ; and apprehending very evil results from 
such free intercourse, he asked the House for a monopoly of commerce by steam power in the Canadian 
portion of Lake Champlain. 

What would have been the effect of conceding the proposed monopolies in the infancy of steam 
navigation on Lake Champlain, the St. Lawrence, and all its great tributaries, can only be imagined. 

Fortunately wise counsels prevailed, and the Legislature displayed no tendency to a Chinese 
policy of exclusion and non-intercourse. 

In 1833, when Montreal had become a Port of Entry, the total number of sea-going vessels which 
cleared from Montreal and Quebec was less than the number which had cleared from Quebec alone in 
the previous year, and their tonnage was also less, the number sailing from Quebec in 1832 having 
been 1,053, "^ 3- ^^^^al burthen of 281,598 tons, against 969 in 1833, of 247,933 '^°'^s burthen, and 133 
vessels from Montreal of 30,769 tons burthen ; yet, for some cause, neither the number nor the tonnage 
of vessels clearing from Montreal increased in 6 years following 1833 ! ^^^ '^^ y^^f 1840 showed a 
slight improvement up to 137 vessels of 31,266 tons burthen. 

48 Port of Montreal up to Fall of 1890. 

In l86i, the number of vessels was 3^"^ times as many as in 1833, and the total tonnage had 
become 8 times as large as in that year. 

In Capper's " Port and Trade of London," it is stated that in i860, the entire Import and Export 
Trade of Great Britain with the North American Colonies was valued at ;^io,496,769 sterling; and 
as in that year the value of Exports, from the Port of Montreal, was $6,020,715, and the value 
of Imports was $15,479,453, it is obvious that the trade of the Mother Country with Montreal, at that 
date, was nearly half her whole trade with the British North American Provinces. 

Though in 1880 tlie number of vessels clearing this Port was only 710, so greatly had they 
increased in size, that while in point of numbers the augmentation had only been 5.3 fold, the tonnage 
had become more than twenty times as great as in 1833. The still greater enlargement of the ships 
subsequently employed in the commerce of Montreal presented last year the contrast of barely 5.2 the 
number of vessels employed in 1833, having more than twenty-six times their capacity. 

The Customs Duties collected at the Port of Montreal amounted, in 1858, to $1,673,503 ; in 
1859, to $2,335,190; in 1862, to $2,490,025; in 1882, to $8,395,654.07; and in 1889, to 
$9,321,981.91, an increase of ^^j per cent, in thirty-one years. 

Probably the increase of River Craft has been in proportion to that of the Sea-going vessels. 

The total estimated storage capacity of Montreal for Flour and Wheat, in 1869, was 1,680,000 
bushels of wheat and 417,000 barrels of flour. Since that time several very large Elevators have been 
erected, so that the storage capacity is equal to any probable demand upon it. 

The receipts of Flour at this Port varied but little from 1845 to i860, inclusive ; the smallest 
quantity received in any year, 1855, being 433,011 barrels, and the largest, in 1858, being only 669,064 
barrels ; but, in 1861, the quantity received reached 1,095,339, nearly double the receipts of the 
next previous year, which were estimated at 577,196. Although for two succeeding years the total 
of receipts increased, the quantity received in any subsequent year, up to 1870, did not reach one 
million barrels ; but from 1871 to 1875, there was an average annual receipt of 1,020,661 barrels, 
gainst 858,839 shipped. 

The total Exports of Grain from this Port, in 1887, amounted to 11,372,789 bushels. 

The Export of Sawn Lumber from this Port to South America, which was previously inconsider- 
able, reached 1,412,128 feet in 1867, and 31,592,960 in 1873, and then diminished, because of the 
unsettled state of affairs in that part of the world. 

In 1880-81, the total Produce of the Forests of Canada was estimated at $22,326,184, or some- 
what over $30 per family of the entire Dominion. 

In a country larger than the United States, but peopled by hardly one-tenth of its population, hav- 
ing the Ocean on two sides and Inland Seas on two others, and drawing its revenues largely from 
Customs Duties, which the vast extent of the country makes it possible to evade, it almost necessarily 
happens that Government, even when aided by the advice and active assistance of Boards of Trade and 
the Harbor Commission, must often disregard matters of convenience to the Public out of consideration 
for matters which are of vital importance. However sparsely populated a country may be, rocks m the of its navigation must be marked by light-houses or fog signals, to save the country the reproach 
of inhospitably beguiling into unknown dangers foreign mariners who trustfully approach its shores. It 
thus happens that there always remains some boon which commerce demands, and which Government 
is slow to concede, because commerce declines to be adequately taxed to provide it ; while, on the 
hand, there are imports, dues and duties of which Trade is weary, but which Government hesitates to 
remove until commerce is made as safe as it can possibly be. 

Seeing that our great Waterway, which furnishes a natural outlet for the products of half a 
continent, lies in direct line between the consumers of one hemisphere and the producers of another. 
Government has been particularly solicitous of good capacious canals and a safe and deep chan- 
nel to the Port of Montreal, which, being at the head of navigation, is the centre of the railway 
system, not merely of Canada, but, in part, also of the Northern and Western States, and this not- 
withstanding adverse legislation. 

Montreal, besides its natural advantage of being central, which a city situated like New York, at 
the sea-board, cannot be, has the further advantage of being three hundred miles nearer Liverpool than 

Port of Montreal up to Fall of 1890. 49 

New York. It is nearer the latitude of Liverpool, and consequently ships sail to it upon a shorter 
arc, and besides being nearer to both producer and consumer, it offers natural and therefore cheaper 
transit for heavy merchandise than New York can boast. Indeed, the products of the wheatfields of 
the great West, both of Canada and the United Slates, come naturally to this Port by simple gra- 
vitation. It is therefore of paramount importance to the whole country that navigation throughout 
the River and Gulf of St Lawrence should be made safe and convenient. In this connection it is well 
to consider what has been done and what is being done to make this Port easily and safely accessible 
and as inexpensive as possible. Prior to 185 1 only vessels under 400 tons and drawing not more than 
eleven feet of water could pass through Lake St Peter and up to the Harbor of Montreal ; but as far 
back as 1875, vessels drawing Z2 to 23^ feet of water, and being from 3500 to 4000 tons burthen, 
passed down to the sea. This was made possible by dredging a channel through the enlargement of 
the River St Lawrence, which goes by the name of Lake St Peter. This work was begun by the 
Harbor Commissioners of Montreal in June, 185 1. 

Within that year the Channel is said to have been deepened two feet for a breadth of 75 feet. 
In a little over two years it had been deepened more than four feet, and was one hundred and fifty feet 
wide ; at the end of eight years it was deepened over seven feet, and was three hundred feet in width 
In fourteen years there was a twenty foot channel, or an improvement of nine feet, but the Harbor 
Commissioners had in view a twenty-five foot channel, to admit of the largest sized ships coming into 
Port, without lighteiage. But before the Commissioners had attained the desideratum of a twenty-five 
foot channel, the increasing size of ships trading to and from this Port convinced the Commission and 
the public generally a depth of 27^ feet must be secured. This having now been accomplished, and 
the Commissioners having been relieved by Government of duties outside the Harbor, they have now 
turned their attention to much needed wharf extension and many other strictly Harbor Improvements. 

Occasionally Bills before Parliament, or the Local Legislature, tend to interfere with free navi- 
gation ; but the Harbor Commissioners and the Board of Trade have been hitherto so vigilant as to 
protect the Harbor and its approach. During many years the deepening and enlargement of 
Canals has been going on with a view to securing 14 feet depth and ample Basins. 

A Hydrographic re-survey of the Gulf of St Lawrence is in progress, and is watched by Bri- 
tish as well as Canadian Scientists and Mariners, because it is doubted whether the recent loss of a 
vessel was not due to an unknown current. 

The opinions of captains of ships are being collated as to the points at which additional signals 
and lights are needed in the River and Gulf, and also in the Straits of Belieisle. 

Measures are also being taken to improve the Code of Signals in use in Inland Navigation, the 
necessity whereof was made evident at the investigation of a recent collision near Longue Pointe. 

Vessels from Montreal, landing a few passengers or goods at Quebec, have been recently relieved 
from paying police dues at that Port. 

It is probably owing to the above mentioned difficulties, attending vast possessions, a sparse 
population, and the consequent financial difficulty of foregoing dues, while undertaking fresh works of 
great public interest, that although the Right Honorable Sir John A. Macdonald agrees with 
the Board of Trade that the habitual concession of a special rate of toll of two cents per ton on 
certain grains shipped to Montreal, or to any Port east of Montreal, loses much of its value by lack- 
ing the quality of permanence, which, in like case in the United States, has been secured by an 
amendment of Constitution, the reduction is still made each year at the expense of a deputation of 
leading men to Ottawa. Only grave reasons of State should allow the continuance of this incon- 
venient practice. 

The Government having some time since acknowledged the principle long contended for, that the 
whole country should share the cost of works carried on in the general interest by the Harbor 
Commissioners of Montreal, and having done this Port tardy justice by assuming a portion of the 
Harbor Commissioners' indebtedness undertaken to improve the National Highway, it is hoped 
that Government, extending the application of this principle to its just limits, will acknowledge a 
further claim of over one million dollars outlaid by the Harbor Commission in the interest of the Com- 
merce of the whole Country, in which case improvements in the Harbor proper, begun or pro- 
posed, including extensive wharves and graded drive-ways, may be proceeded with in the spring of 189 1.

The total number of arrivals from sea this year has been 746, which is 21 less than in 1887, but 51 
more than last year, and 91 more than in 1888. The number of arrivals of Ocean Steamships is 624. 
There have not been so many Sailing Ships in Port as in former years, but in these there has been 
almost a steady decrease since 1870, when they numbered 536 and Steamships only 114. 

The total tonnage of the Ships in Port this year exceeds that of any former year. The total ton- 
nage of the Port up to the 1st of December was 930,337. The greatest tonnage for the whole 
season of any previous year is only 870,773 (the tonnage of 1887). 

It thus appears that the tonnage of this year exceeds that of any previous year, and was 
107,222 tons more than in 1889. This increase proves that the class of vessels coming to Mont- 
real is still rapidly improving, and, inferentially, that the business men of the world are becoming 
more and more aware that the relative importance of this Port, as a distributing point, is far beyond 
what its rank, in respect of population, would indicate. 

In the season of Navigation, from 15th April to 1st December, 1890, 624 Ocean Steamships, of 
889,189 tons burthen, arrived in the Port of Montreal ; 

During the same season, 9 ships, 33 barques, 2 brigs, 8 brigantines, and 70 schooners (from 
the Atlantic Ocean), with a total of 41,143 tons burthen, arrived in Port. 

And, during same season: 252 Gulf and River steamers, and 5,162 Inland Craft, with 966,959 
tons burthen, arrived in Port. 

Of the Ocean Steamships : 20 were owned by Allan Line of Steamships, 6 by Donaldson Line of 
Steamships, 5 by Ross Steamship Line of Steamships, 6 by Thomson Line of Steamships, 10 by 
Dominion Line of Steamships, 5 by Canada Shipping Co. (Beaver Line), 7 by Hansa Steamship Co., 2 
by Bossi^re Line.

As I have not succeeded, after a persistent canvass, to secuie a sufficient number of subscribers to 
warrant the pubhcation of my projected CENsrs ok Montreal. I have asked those who desire the issue 
to become 50c Link Contribi tors, by giving their Name, Profession, or Business, and Address 
for publication In this Historic Record of Montreal. I have great pleasure in acknowledging a cheerful 
and telling re>ponse, which enables me to risk publication without a serious loss.

CAPITAL $200,000 20,000 SHARES OP $100 EACH. 

Head Quarters in Montreal. 

Object : To guarantee funds towards cost of publication of Lovell's Gazetteer and 
History of Canada, in Eleven Volumes, with Eight Provincial Maps and a Map of the 
Dominion of Canada* 

Funds to be placed in the hands of a Committee of Five, appointed by the Stockholders. 
John Lotell, to he Manager and Publisher. 

So soon as $150,000 are subscribed, a call of five per cent, will be made, to secure a 
Canvassing Fund, Whenever $150,000 are subscribed for Volumes, for Lines, and in procuring 
Illustration Contrihutors, a meeting of the Shareholders will be called to decide on future 

Applicants for Stock and further particulars are respectfully requested to appl)^ to 

JOHN LOVELL, Publisher. 

Montreal, March, 1891. 


To be commenced as soon as the subscriptions cover the cost of publication. 

The true history of this magnificent country is yet to be written ; that is, of the 
places in it. A correct and a truly National History would place Canada in a 
foremost rank. It would record the wonderful progress of this broad Dominion. It 
would chronicle every leading feature, and especially the wealth which the magnificent 
Allan Line of Steamships, and now of other Lines of Steamships are bringing to this 
country. It would show how the Grand Trunk Railway and the Canadian Pacific 
Railway are opening up our enormous Canada and its billions of acres, too rich 
to be allowed to remain much longer unknown. 

In connection with this great undertaking, of the character and extent of which 
the Canadian public have been already sufficiently informed through my Prospectus 
and The Press, the following letter, addressed to me, will afford some idea of the 
manner in which the jiroject has impressed the mind of an intelligent and 
disinterested American gentlemen, residing in Plattsburgh, N. Y. 

Dear Sir, — I take pleasure in acknowledging the receipt of your esteemed favor of Sept. 6th, 
with your revised Prosjiectus and Sample Backs of the great historical work which you have projected. 
I find it difficult to speak, write or think about this undertaking without enthusiasm. Such an attempt, 
to gather in the threads of unwritten history from such a domain as the entire Dominion of Canada, 
stands without a parallel, certainly in the New World. It seems to me that the carrying out of your 
plan will add a most valuable characteristic to Canadian history — supplying, in its contributions from 
real life, what the breathing living organism is to the skeleton. 

Large as the task is, which you have undertaken, I believe you will see its accomplishment. I 

cannot think that business people, and the brainy people of Canada, will allow you to fail of carrying 

out a plan so vital to the interests of every parish. It is a work which delay renders more and more 

difficult of accomplishment, as old people pass away. To-day their recollection is clear, but tomorrow 

they may be gone, and the light they only could supply goes out with them. Regretting that I can do 

so little beyond wishing you God speed, I remain, yours most sincerely, 


Local records in the work will be thoroughly revised by recognized masters of 
the subject, before being finally presented to the public. In every case, the Editor's 
debt to previous writers, to unpublished manuscripts and to viva voce suggestions will 
be definitely acknowledged, in order that students, so desiring, may draw instruction 
from the same sources. 

The origines of places treated with special fulness, especially when the founders 
and pioneers are men of moral and intellectual vigor, they impress their characters on 
their work, and the preservation of their memories must have an inspiring effect on 
those who come after them. Their association with the great and good of a past day 
has had a salutary influence on several of our Canadian cities, and on none of them 
more perceptibly than on Montreal, the story of whose birth and early years is almost 
without parallel in the annals of civilization. 

Although my first attempt failed for want of pecuniary support, I have resolved to 
make another trial. This time by a Joint Stock Company with a capital of $200,000, 
in shares of $100 each. After $150,000 are subscribed for, a call of five per cent, 
will be made to raise a fund, to be applied to a thorough canvass of each Province in 
the Dominion for subscribers for copies. Should the result amount to $150,000, the 
matter will at once be made known to the Stockholders, and their decision to put the 
preparation of the Eleven volumes into my hands by the appointment of the Editor- 


LoveWs Historic Report of Census of Montreal 

in-Chief, the Assistant Editor, the Editor of Statistics, of Eight Superintending 
Revising-Editors, one for each Province, and One Hundred Province Editors will be 
considered final. By this means the Eleven volumes could be .completed and 
published within two years from date of commencing. Should the Subscription Can- 
vassers fail in their mission, the work will again be abandoned, with a loss to the 
Shareholders of five per cent, paid in on each share; but, should the canvass prove 
favorable, I should have the privilege of re-purchasing subscribed shares, by allowing 
eight per cent, from time of payment. 

The following is a fair sample of how every place, having a name, in the Dominion, 
would be inserted in Lovell's Gazetteer and History of Canada : 


THREE RIVERS, founded in 1634, is the 
third oldest city in this province. It is the capital 
of the district of Three Rivers and of the counties 
of St. Maurice, Nicolet, Champlain and Maski- 
nonge. It is at the confluence of the St. Law- 
rence and St. Maurice Rivers.

Incorporated in 1876 as a Town, adjoining the City limits of Montreal. It was formed b}' the 
amalgamation of the Villages of Tannc-ry West and Coteau St Augustin. The Town of St Henry 
is situated in the Seigniory of Montreal, County of Hochelaga and District of Montreal. The 
J^achine Canal passes on the .south side, and signal stations of the Grand Trunk Railway are 
situated here at the junctions where the roads branch off east and west, and to Montreal and 
Lachine. The Grand Trunk Railway Co., with the aid of the Council of the Town, has erected 
a splendid station at the curve, near the Notre Dame Street bridge. The Municipality of S 
Henry is governed by a Mayor and Corporation, and a separate permanent Fire and Police force 
is maintained. The Town contains a Roman Catholic College and Convent, Church and Presby- 
tery, and several important industries, amongst others two extensive tanneries, boot and shoe 
fiactory, brick yards, the C. W. Williams Manufacturing Company, a Cotton Manufacturing 
Company. It has an Abattoir and Stock Yard Company, Town Hall, and a Fire and Police

Extract from a letter of The Eight Honorable Sib John A. Macdonald, K.C.B., D.C.L., P.M., etc. 

I have looked through the Specimen pages of your proposed Gazetteer and History. If carried out, in 
manner indicated by those pages, it will be a work of the greatest value to the whole Dominion. It ought to be 
patronized largely by Canadians. Please put me down for a set. 

Extract of a letter from His Lordship Bishop Lorrain, Vicar Apostolic of Pontiac. 
Please find enclosed ray order for a complete set of your Gazetteer and History of Canada. You are 80 years 
of age ! This is a pretty good old age for a man who purposes to undertake such an immense work as the publi- 
cation of " The Gazetteer." May the Almighty God keep you to commence and finish such a useful work. 

Extract from a letter of 3, M. LeMoine, Esq., the Historian of Quebec. 
You have my warmest praise for the completion of the literary venture outlined in your Prospectus. None 
but a veteran like you could dare conceive such a comprehensive project ; none but an indefatigable worker 
could expect to compass such a task. If i can be of any service to any of your co-adjutors in gathering and 
sifting informatio)! anent old Quebec, please command my services. I can recommend you, from past expe- 
rience, as an earnest and successful toiler in Canadian annals. I am pleased to find that years have not damped 
your ardor and that the glow of youth is still yours. 

Extractfrom a letter r;/'GE0RGE Stewart, Jun., Esq., Author of " Canada under the Administration of the Earl 
of Dufferin," Editor of Stewart' s Magazine, etc. 
I have the Prospectus of the Gazetteer and History which you intend publishing. The great enterprise will 
have my best support. Such a work is needed, and 1 know no man in Canada better equipped to publish and 
direct such an undertaking than yourself. 1 wish you all success. 

Extractfrom a letter of Sydney R. Bellingham, Esq., formerly a resident of Montreal, noto residing at Castle 

Bellingluim in Ireland. 
I have the Prospectus of your elaborate National Canadian work. 1 herewith return a signed order for a 
complete set. The work merits encouragement. 

Extract from a letter of a Canadian Gentleman, »ow residing in New York. 

I have your letter and Prospectus. I glory in your decision. Put me down for two sets, and for $1500 in case 
your subscription list does not cover cost of publication. The work must be of great value to the Dominion. 

Extract from a tetter of a Gentleman residing in Ottawa. 
1 am rejoiced to see that your wonted fires are again blazing up in the Prospectus of the great and compre- 
hensive work it foreshadows. 

A Very Great Enterprise. 

To the Editor of The Gazette. 

Sir,— As an old resident of Montreal who takes a lively interest in its progress and in that of my fellow- 
citizens, I wonld beg respectfully to draw the attention of the public to what 1 term a gigantic enterprise, which 
is now being carried out by one of the worthiest and most respected men in town— I refer to the veteran 
publisher, Mr. John Lovell, and his projected Gazetteer and Hi.story of Canada. The work is an immense one, 
particularly for a gentleman of Mr. Lovell' s years, and that he should have gone to work upon it demonstrates 
the enterprising pluck of which he is possessed. The work, when completed, will be a monument to his perse- 
verance and his energy in struggling with ditticulties, which to many younger men would be altogether insur- 
mountable. The enterprise is one in which every citizen of Montreal should take an interest. The Gazetteer 
and History will be invaluable to our busitess men, and I trust all who can do so will become subscribers, at 
OHce, so as to make the project an assured success from the commencement. 

Yours truly, W. D. STROUD. 

To the Editor of The Gazette. 

Sir,— In your issue of yesterday appears a very kind letter from W. D, Stroud, Esquire, in favor of my 
project. To this estimable citizen, I beg to tender my most sincere thanks, not only for the letter but for the 
kind way in which he subscribed for nine volumes of my projected Gazetteer and History of Canada. His 
wish to see such a work issued did not end here. After signing his name, he said : " Mr. Lovell, in case your 
subscription list does not come up to your expectation, put me down for five additional sets to help your great 
enterprise." This magnificent otter is worthy of all praise. Every good man will glory in such a citizen. It 
has my heartfelt thanks. It is a noble contribution towards the issue of one of the greatest works ever 
attempted in this wonderful and prosperous country. 

To Mr. Wji. Drysdale, publisher, and to other gentlemen, I also beg to offer my thanks for their volun- 
tary subscriptio.s and for having put my projected Gazetteer and History prominently forward through the 
Press, and by their strong and forcible advocacy of the true value of the work. 

For thirtj'-five years the thought of being of use to my country, by publisliing a true History of every place 
in it, has cheeriiigly urged me on. While health and strength are mine I will persevere in my effort. 

Yours obediently, 

JOHN LOVELL, Publisher.

Aq incorporated Village near the east end of Mount Royal, Parish of L'Enfant Jesus, Seigniory 
of Montreal, County of Hochelaga. This Village was formerly united with Coteau St Louis 
and Cote Visitation in one municipality ; but in 1878 it was incorporated as a separate Munici- 
pality with a Mayor and seven Councillors. Before the year 1800 the site on which the Village 
stands was a forest, and mostly belonged to Pierre D. Belair. An Englishman, named Mount- 
pleasant, purchased it from the former owner, and experimented in orchard culture with a large 
stock of fruit trees imported from England. His attempt was unsuccessful, and the land passed 
into the Whitehall and Knapp families. A few years later John and Jacob Wurtele purchased a 
large portion of it, and in 1816 it was subdivided between Wurtele, Fortier, John Spalding, 
Richard Smith, and others. Still later Stanley Bagg purchased a tract of about forty acres, on 
a portion of which the Provincial Exhibition buildings are now erected. In 1805 a clearance 
was made on the west side of St Lawrence road to the brow of the Mountain, northward from 
where the Hotel Dieu Convent and Hospital now stands, to the present Mount Royal avenue. 
The clearance was turned into pasture land and a race course. The course was then the only 
one in either Lower or Upper Canada. Robert Lovell and family, in 1820 and 1821, occupied 
what was then known as the Wurtele property, now almost the centre of this prosperous and 
progressive village, then known as the Mile End. On the outskirts are several farms, among 
which may be noted that of John Spalding, whose father was one of the first pioneers in this 
district. All this immense tract of land had originally belonged to the Seminary of St Sulpice 
and to the Ladies of the Hotel Dien. A Catholic Church was built in 1857, in connection with 
which are the Convent of the Sisters of Providence, and an extensive Institution for Deaf Mutes 
(males), which is under the control of the Clercs de St Viateur. Attached to this Institution 
is a manufactory where various trades are taught to the afflicted inmates. The Canadian 
Pacific Railway runs through the village, and near the station is a large Kerosene Oil Refinery.

Ax Incorporated Village near the east end of Montreal, parish of L'Enfant Jesus, seigniory of 
Montreal, county of Hochelaga. This place, on account of its proximity to Montreal, may be 
regarded as one of its suburbs. In I7G0 it consisted of three or four small houses, erected by 
Jean Brazeau, who had acquired a tract of what was thought rather poor land from the gentle- 
men of the Seminary of St. Sulpice, Seigniors of the Island of Montre.'tl. An English settler, 
James Ross, purchased sixty acres of it, but afterwards resold it to Brazeau. Shortly after- 
wards the discovery of an immense bed of limestone, suitable for building purposes, gave a great 
impetus to the prosperity of the locality. Capital was invested, and the first stone extracted in 
1773. Among the earlier proprietors of quarries were Benjamin Lapointe, Pascal Comte, John 
Spalding and Charles Lacroix. The principal buildings in Montreal were built of stone from 
these quarries. Among the buildings may be cited the old Montreal College, the Church of 
Notre Dame, Post Office, City Hall, Villa Maria Convent, and most of the Banks. About the 
year ISOO M. Plessis dit Belair bought a strip of land, extending from the present St Denis 
street to Robin street, and established a tannery. The district then became known as Tanneries 
des Belair. Mr. Plessis was the father of Monseigneur Plessis, Bishop of Quebec, The house 
he then built is still standing, and is now used as a saw mill. Owing to the development of the 
quarries many small houses were built from time to time. It was incorporated as a village in 
1846. In 1855 a Catholic Chapel was erected under the auspices of the Clercs de St. Viateur. 
Afterwards aTChurch was built at St Louis de Mile End, and the chapel became a part of the 
new church. Experiments in orchard culture were at one time made, but proved unsuccessful. 
The land has been gradually portioned into farms, which are now in a flourishing condition. 
The quarries, however, form the principal industry, and furnish the bulk of the male popu- 
lation with employment. The village proper is closely built, and during the past year several 
substantial dwellings have been erected. The Town Hall, which was burned in 1886, has been 
rebuilt, and presents a fine appearance. In the same year a Free Library was established by 
the Municipal Council, for the use of the inhabitants. The village has a mayor and six coun- 
cillors. It possesses one Protestant church, one Catholic school and one Protestant dissentient 
school. The Catholic church and Canvent are at St Louis of Mile End- Mails daily. Distant 
from the Montreal Parish Church, I mile. 

Population : 1389 females ; 1464 males ; 1259 Catholic females; 1341 Catholic males ; 130 
Protestant females ; 123 Protestant males. Total 2853. 
Coteau St. Louis has 496 houses : — 175 brick, 3 dashed, 69 stone, 249 wooden.

An Incorporated Town, formerly part of the Parish of Montreal, but now of the Parish of 
Notre Dame Je Grace, in tlie rear of Mount Royal, Seigniory of Montreal, County of Hochelaga. 
It was first settled in lc^69 by the Reverend Sulpicians. The parish being in close proximity to 
Montreal may be regarded as one of its suburbs. Notre Dame des Neiges is one of the healthy 
localities in the vicinity of Montreal. Being situate in a pleasant valley in rear of the Moun 
tains, the smoke and vapors arising from the city do not reacli it, on account of its position and 
altitude. In 1760 it consisted of the scattered dwellings of a few settlers. Among the earliest of 
the proprietors were the Reverend Sulpicians; Pascal Lachapelle ; Louis Reichon; Nicolas 
Desmarchais ; Pierre Desmarchais ; Pierre Picard ; and Charles Picard, uncle of the Rev. E. 
Piiard, S.S., from whom part of the land upon which the Town stands was purchased. 
It was divided into lots about 1828. The first settlers were mostly tanners, settled on the 
creek which crosses the Town in four different places. The tanneries have disappeared, with 
two exceptions, which are now working on a large scale, and are in a flourishing condition 
There was formerly a tine quarry here, from which part oi the stone used to build the 
Lachine Canal locks was taken. Owing to the development of these industries many small 
houses were, from time to time, erected. The inhabitants are now mostly farmers and market 
gardeners. The first rough stone house in the Town was built about 1776, by Charles Picard, 
and is still standing. It was incorporated as a village in 1862, Augustin Crevier, now of 
Ste. Cunegonde, being its first mayor. In 1889 it was incorporated as a town, the first 
mayor being Pierre Claude, a leather merchant . There is a fine Chapel, built of stone, estab- 
lished by the Reverend Sulpicians in 1690, under the spiritual charge of Missionaries, sent from 
the Seminary of St. Sulpice. The present cure is the Rev. iSTapeoleon Marechal, P.P. There is 
a school established for girls by the Sulpicians in 1883, under the management of the Catholic 
School Commissioners, and directed by the Reverend La lies of the Grey Nunnery. Present 
Lady Superioress Reverend Sister Casgrain. A boys' school, built of stone in 1846, by the Catho- 
lic School Coniiuissioners, under the presidency of the late P. Lachapelle. Present president 
Pierre Claude ; superintendent Joseph Germain. Notre Dame College for young boys, directed 
by the Reverend Fathers of the Holy Cross ; Father Joseph Reze, director. A Protestantdissen- 
tient school, under the direction of Miss Noyes. The Novitiate of the Holy Cross, directed by the 
Rev. Father Guy. The Catholic Cemetery of Notre Dame is situated about half a mile to the 
south-east of the town, near the ruins of the old capitulation house, where the treaty of sur- 
render of Montreal to the English is supposed to have been signed. The Montreal Athletic 
Club House, a favorite winter resort for snows hoers and social clubs of all kinds, and sum- 
mer resort for picnics, is situated here. It has a fine hotel, affording good accommodation ; 2 
marble works with 30 employees ; and 2 tanneries with 50 employees ; a post office, mail daily. 
An omnibus service has recently been started from the Athletic Club House to the city. 
Distant from Montreal 3 miles.

An incorporated village, situated on the north side of MountRoval, parish of I'Enfant-J^sus, district 
of Montreal, county of Hochelaga. The site on which the village stands was originally the property 
of the Reverend Suipicians, and was known as Cote St. Catherine, in the parish of Montreal. The 
road had been constructed around the base of the mountain, and served as an outlet to Cote des Neiges 
and St. Laurent. About ninety years ago Joseph Perrault, legislative councillor and Francois Desca- 
ries, appear to have become proprietors of all the land which comprises Outremont, At this time it 
was nothing hut a bush. Benjamin Hall a few years after purchased a large portion of it, and farms 
were fairly started. The land which sloped away into the St. Laurent valley proved very fertile, and 
several gentlemen of means procured farms. Among those were John Gray, who had a large foundry, 
Colonel Ma.\well, Warren Dease, who had made a handsome fortune in the fur trade of ihe North 
West, and Doctor Beaubien, father of the Honorable Louis Beaubien. In the course of time, the land 
became more and more subdivided for farming purposes, and John McMartin, Jean Bouthillier,

John Clarke became the purchaser of a valuable site for a country seat, comprising several acres 
of land. This gentleman had amassed a large fortune in the service of the Hudson Bay Co. .He 
spent a considerable sum here in the erection of a handsome residence, which he named Beaver Lodge. 
The grounds were beautifully and luxuriantly cultivated. He entertained his friends in a princely 
manner. He was well known to the writer of this short sketch. His grand physique, fine qualities, 
commanding appearance, are still fresh in the memory of the writer. He was noted for hi.s bravery, 
humanity and self-possession on trying occasions. One of his daring acts is worthy of mention here, 
and the following account of it is from the lips of his eldest daughter. Miss Adele Clarke : While he 
was in Fort Garry, with his family, a large body of Indians ajjproached the place in their war costume, 
with painted faces, determined on exterminating the devoted inmates. Mr. Clarke, being a leading 
citizen, entreated the men of the Fort to stand at their posts and to give fight to their relentless foe. 
The overwhelming numters outside the Fort had a disheartening effect on the besieged, most of whom, 
in their despondency, would have met death without striking a blow. But, fortunately, the cool- 
headed John Clarke was not so easily cowed. He instantly resolved to meet the fierce Indians, and he 
accordingly ordered the gate to be opened. He marched out alone, unarmed, and, as he issued forth, 
ordered the gate to be closed. The brave man, with outstretched arms, walked to ^yhere the Indians 
were encamped. They approached him with awe, believing that a superior being stood before them. 
They began by feeling his toes, his fingers, his body. The Indian chief put his hand on Mr. Clarke's 
head, and offered him his caluind as a symbol of peace. In fine, his intrepid conduct secured the 
withdrawal of the Indians, and he returned to the Fort amidst the warmly expressed admiration and 
gratitude of the fear-stricken occupants. His estimable widow, two of his daughters, and one son are 
now (189 1) residing on Clarke avenue, a delightful locality on the western outskirts of Montreal. 

Sydney Robert Bellingham became the purchaser of a large and valuable tract of land in this 
place, beautifully situated on the north brow of the Mountain (Mount-Royal). There he built a com- 
fortable house, in which he resided, with his family, for many years. Mr. Bellingham was ever an 
active and useful citizen. He served this country, as a British subject, faithfully and honorably ; as an 
able writer, as one of its legislators in the House of Commons, but especially in the trying times of 
1837-38, when he rendered signal service during the march of a handful of soldiers to St. Charles, 
under the command of the valiant Colonel Wetherall. At St. Hilaire it was ascertained that there 
were at least 3,000 insurgents in arms at St. Charles. The Colonel had only 120 men, all told, under 
his command. Mr. Bellingham was in command of the movements and actions of the soldiers. On 
consultation he and the amiable Colonel DeRouville (at whose house Colonel Wetherall, Mr. 
Bellingham, Captain Glasgow, Captain David, and others, were staying) recommended that a 
despatch should be sent to Chambly to the brave and noble soldier, Major Ward, who had two 
companies of the Royals and one of the 32nd Regiment under his command in that place. Not 
satisfied with merely sending for Major Ward, Mr. Bellingham actually volunteered to carry Colonel 
Wetherall's despatch himself. A volunteer Montreal Cavalry trooper, of nine years' standing, con- 
sented to be his compagnon de voyage. At one o'clock on a dark night in November, 1837, both 
started on their perilous mission, with the understanding that if either fell on the way by the hands of 
the enemy the other was to ride on as long as the road was free. Fortunately both reached Point 
Olivier ferry at four o'clock, a.m., aroused the reluctant ferryman from his bed, and compelled him to 
ferry them across the Richelieu. Shortly afterwards they reached Chambly on jaded horses, which, had 
they not been well bred, would never have been equal to the fatigue of such a journey over rough and 
almost impassable roads. Major Ward was soon aroused by the sentinel. After receiving the des- 
patch and exchanging a few words with Mr. Bellingham, the gallant soldier, with two companies of 
the Royals, one company of the 32nd Regiment, Mr. Sydney R. Bellingham, and the Montreal Cavalry 
trooper, set out on their way to St. Hilaire. Well might their arrival gladden the heart of the brave 
Colonel Wetherall and of the loyal DeRouville, for, under Providence, it was the means, not only of 
saving valuable lives and much treasure, but of preserving this country to their beloved Fatherland. 
With the additional force the march to St. Charles was begun early on the morning of the following 
day, and the destination was reached about 12 noon. While nearing St. Charles, Colonel Wetherall 
noticed a fine-looking old man, with white locks, a picture of goodness — standing at his door. The 
Colonel was struck with the old man's fine appearance, attitude and carriage, and at once ordered the 

Montreal Cavalry trooper to bring him into his presence. The Colonel addressed tliis aged kabitant'i 
in French, assuring him that he was desiious of meeting his misguided countrymen in a friendly way^^ 
and requested him to go up to the breastworks and ask his fellow-countrymen to lay down their armsfi 
in order that the Colonel might enter into a parley with them. The venerable man was soon on thel 
way. He was seen entering the breastworks — but not to return. The answer from within was thef 
discharge of such cannon as the insurgents possessed, and a broadside of small arms, sufficient, if well^; 
aimed, to have laid low every British soldier on the field. The gallant and well-meaning Colonel hadv 
a few of his men wounded and two killed, but lost no time. In about ten minutes after the actiong 
commenced his horse was shot dead under him. In a moment Sydney Robert Bellingham, Esq., was 
at the side of his dismounted Colonel, placing his own charger at the Colonel's disposal. The latter 
in a moment was on the powerful horse, ordered his men into line across the field, of course in single 
file, and placed Major Ward, with a few men, close to the breastworks. For hours the action appeared 
to be in favor of the insurgents, 3,000 of them stood against 300, but the latter were British soldiers, 
whose evolutions were directed by an able and experienced commander. The steady fire and courage 
of the insurgents were certainly worthy of a better cause. The only hope, at this trying moment, for 
the gallant Colonel was to command a charge on the breastworks. It was done in royal style, and 
vith a shout that raised every man's courage. The breastworks, after severe fighting, were carried at 
the point of the bayonet. Here Major Ward distinguished himself as a soldier of courage andl 

This account of the taking of St. Charles is written as a simple act of justice to a gentleman 
whose services have never been fully acknowledged. The writer had known him with pride, with 
pleasure, for upwards of fifty years as a manly defender of right and a hater of oppression. Sydney 
Robert Bellingham, Esq. , was ever a true friend, confiding, generous and noble-hearted. His every act 
was that of a brave man. Without him the lamented Major Ward and his valiant soldiers would not 
have been on tlie field, and positive defeat would have closed the campaign. The writer of this sketch 
witnessed the battle. He can honestly say that the service rendered to Colonel Wetherall by Major 
Ward, sword in hand, decided the success of the loyalists in the engagement. The writer counted 
nineteen bullet holes in the Major's military frock coat, and his horse was riddled with bullets. The 
fine animal carried his master tdl his work was accomplished, and died soon after the battle was won. 
Wonderful to relate — the gallant Major himself escaped without even a flesh wound. 

On the day after the battle Mr. Bellingham requested Colonel Wetherall to accept the fine horse 
which that brave officer had ridden at the battle, as a slight memorial of his signal victory. The gift, 
so gracefully oftered, was, the writer may add, gracefully accepted. 

Mr. Bellingham's bravery and foresight throughout the entire march, and especially his valor in 
risking his life to secure Major Ward's timely and telling help, formed the topic of conversation among 
the victors of St. Charles. But for his timely aid the effort to reduce so determined and well organized 
a foe would probably have ended in failure. Mr. Bellingham is now (1891) spending the evening of 
his days in quiet retirement in his native country — Ireland. 

In 1875 ^^^ village was incorporated as a municipality, with a mayor and 6 councillors, uiider the 
name of Outremont. Several substantial houses were erected and grouped themselves into a village. 
The farms are well tilled, and the orchards and gardens are among the finest. A small chapel has 
been erected, where the service of the Church of England is held. 

Outremont is destined t® become one of the most favorite suburban retreats of Montreal. Its 
pleasant site and agreeable approach to the city have already induced many prominent business 
men to take up their residence there. Mail daily ; omnibus twice daily. One mile from Montreal. 

Population: — 173 females; 190 males ; 43 Catholic females ; 55 Catholic m.^Ies ; 130 Protestant 
females ; 135 Protestant males. Total 363. 

Outremont has 65 houses : — 26 brick ; 2 dashed ; 1 1 stone ; 26 wooden.
