THE 



EIGHTEENTH 



ANNUAL REPORT 



FINANCES 



OF THE 



TOWN OF DORCHESTER, 



Year ending February 1, 1856. 



BOSTON: 

PRINTED BY DAVID CLAPP, 

Over 184 'Washington Street. 

1856. 



SELECTMEN'S REPORT. 



The undersigned, Selectmen, Overseers of the Poor, 
Surveyors of Highways, and Assessors, submit their 
Annual Report, showing the receipts and expenditures 
of the Town for the year ending January 31, 1856. 

By the report of the Auditors, the amount of money 
received is $116,760 19. 

The amount expended is shown under the different 
heads. 

ALMS HOUSE. 

The number of inmates on the first day of February, 
1855, was 20. Admissions during the year, 22. Num- 
ber of deaths, 3 — removed to the State Alms House, 
1 8 — to the Lunatic Asylum at Taunton, 1 — discharged, 
2 ; leaving 18 on the first day of February, 1856. 

Aid and comfort have been afforded to such of the 
inmates as were unable to be removed, and assistance 
has been rendered to travelling and transient paupers 
as occasion required. 

The inmates of this institution have enjoyed a good 
degree of health, and their comfort has been promoted 



by the constant care of the present superintendent 
and matron, who deserve much credit for their kind 
care and attention. 

Several cases of small pox have occurred and been 
provided for. 

Numl)er of persons in the Lunatic Hospital, 4. 

HIGHWAYS. 

At the commencement of the season the roads were 
divided into five districts and assigned to the several 
members of the Board as Surveyors, but in conse- 
quence of Washington Village being set off to the City 
of Boston, the system was somewhat broken into and 
interrupted. 

In reference to the Highway account of expendi- 
tures, we would call attention to the many heavy and 
important alterations and improvements in dressing, 
grading, putting in culverts, and building sidewalks, 
many of which have l)een done in the most thorough 
manner. 

STREETS. 

During the past year Linden Street, leading from 
Dorchester Avenue to Commercial Street, has been 
graded and put in good travelling order. 

Walnut Street, leading from Neponset Turnpike 
to the depot of the 0. C. Railroad at Port Norfolk, 
has been widened and thoroughly graded. 

On Centre Street, near land of Col. Train, a new 
culvert has been put in, and the street widened, graded 
and otherwise improved. 

Tenian Bridge has been new planked and repaired, 
at an expense of $118 89. 



New Street from Lower Mills to Back Street. 

This Street remains in the same condition as it 
was last spring. The B. & N. Y. C. Railroad Co. 
not having made good their promises, it became the 
subject of complaint from the Selectmen of West E,ox- 
burj, to the County Commissioners, who found it one 
of those unprovided-for cases, in which neither the 
Commissioners nor the town of Dorchester could act 
without fui'ther leorislative action. 



^o-" 



Boston 6^ New York Central Mail Road. 

This Company has erected a gate at each of the 
grade crossings of the streets — has made progress 
towards the completion of the bridge on Washington 
Street, and has enlarged and improved the passage 
Tinder those bridges over which they pass — thus ren- 
dering the roads more safe to the travelling public 
than they heretofore have been. 

In the month of December, 1854, Mr. Albert D. 
Swan sustained injuries at the Eailroad bridge over 
Green Street. The same has been adjusted by pay- 
ment of $515 50. The Company has been notified 
through their agent, and said notice by him acknow- 
ledo-ed in due form. 

GRAVEL LAND. 

The lot of land adjoining the estate of Paul Sears, 
Esq. (purchased in 1854), having been found to con- 
sist of material unfit for road purposes, has, in con- 
formity with the vote of the town, been sold for 
$3,688 64, and $3,440 20 returned to the School 



6 

Fund from which it was taken. In conformity to a 
vote of the town, a sale of land (on Commercial St.) 
has been made to Luther Spear, to the amount of 
$160 47. . 

The annual extending of our roads and the conse- 
quent increasing amount of material necessary for 
repairs, to be had only from diminished sources of 
supply, makes the procuring of good gravel a most 
important subject of consideration. 

WASHINGTON VILLAGE; 

This section of the town having been annexed to 
the City of Boston, we have, in connection with the 
City authorities, perambulated the lines and set up 
and established the boundaries thereon. 

The Washington school house has been sold to 
the City for $6,000, and the proceeds applied to the 
discharge of the debt remaining due on the same. 

During the year those persons " at Squantum and 
the Farms," heretofore attached t;0 Dorchester, have 
been set off to Quincy, thus leaving the town more 
compact in its territory, with a population consisting 
of 8,363 inhabitants. 

POLICE AND NIGHT WATCH. 

Under the present efl&cient and well-organized day 
and night police, quietness and good order have been 
maintained throughout the town, more especially dur- 
ing the celebration on the 4th of July. 

For a short period during the summer months it 
became necessary to station " a day police " on Wash- 
ington Street, to prevent furious driving to and from 



the Catholic cemetery. We hope that future occasion 
may not require a similar outlay, to protect our citi- 
zens and the travelling public from an act so barba- 
rous in its nature, and revoltins: in its character. 



■'5 



ABATEMENTS. 

Owing to the circumstances and changes affecting 
many of our citizens, we have been called upon to 
make an unusual amount of abatements on personal 
property. Abatements have been made on Personal, 
to the amount of $2,011 84; Real, $399 40; Polls, 
$492 00. 

LOCK-UPS, 

In consequence of the annexation of Washington 
Village to the City of Boston, it became unnecessary 
to build a lock-up at that part of the town. 

Owing to the many duties devolving on the mem- 
bers of the Board, together with the difficulty of ob- 
taining a suitable site for the lock-up at the Lower 
Mills, and through the sickness and disappointment 
of the contracting party and the municipal year being 
so near its close, we have concluded to refer the sub- 
ject of building said lock-up to our successors in office, 
recommending to the town to appropriate the sum of 
$250 for the purchase of a site for the same. 

In closing, permit us to state that the great variety 
of official stations in which we have been called to 
act — ^the unusual character and amount of business 
brought before the Board — together with the lack of 



8 



experience in the discharge of the responsible duties 
devolving upon us, will be, we trust, an excuse for 
any errors found to exist. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

The estimated loss of property in Dorchester the past 
year by fire has been $16,100 ; on which property there 
was insurance, as near as ascertained, of $5,300. 

The different Engine-houses, Engines, and apparatus 
of the department, are in good order, and well taken 
care of. 

The expenses of the department the past year have 
somewhat exceeded the appropriation made therefor by 
the town, owing to the necessity of purchasing more 
leading and suction hose than was anticipated, and also 
the necessity of painting and varnishing the engines and 
hose-carriages for the gratification of the companies, 
and the credit of the town, on the opcasion of the cele- 
bration of the 4th of July last. 

The department is in efficient organization, and that 
feeling of friendly regard between the different compa- 
nies, that augurs well for the safety of the property of 
the citizens from fire, is remarkably perceptible. 

The amount of expenditures under the direction of 
the Board of Engineers, for repairs of engines, houses, 
new hose, repairing hose, &c., the past year, has been 
$1,Y30 to. Total expenditures on account of the de- 
partment the past year, have been $2,439 36. 

Respectfully yours, &c.
