CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 



To His Honor the Mayor, and the Board of Aldermen of the 
City of Concord : 

In accordance with my duty, as laid down by the Act establish- 
ing the Fire Department of the City of Concord, I would respect- 
fully make the following report : 

The city has been particularly fortunate in relation to losses by 
fire during the past year, no building of any magnitude having been 
destroyed, and in most of the cases comparatively little damage 
was done, owing to the promptness of the various companies com- 
posing the Department. There have been seven alarms during the 
year, which were as follows : 

April 20. — Fire at the house of Mr. Rufus Abbott, at West Con- 
cord. 

July 11. — Fire at the Northern Railroad ; partial burning of a 
small shop for storing tools, &c. This fire was occasioned by the 
spontaneous combustion of a small quanty of waste cotton in a box, 
saturated with oil, probably. 

Sept. 14. — Fire at the dwelling house of Mr. George M. White, 
on Green street — damage about $200. This fire was evidently 
the work of an incendiary, who broke into the house in the ab- 
sence of the family, for the purpose of plunder. 

Oct. 20. — Fire at Sanborn's Block, occasioned by a defect in the 
chimney. This fire was confined to the Hall where it was first dis- 
covered. There were two streams of water playing on the fire in 
about eight minutes after the alarm, and by the promptness of the 
Department a most extensive conflagration was prevented, as there 
was an uncommonly high wind at the time. Damage by^fire and 
water, considerable — amount not ascertained. 



36 

Nov. 21. — Fire at the dwelling house of Mr. N. P. Fogg, on 
Centre street, occasioned by a defect in the chimney. Damage 
about 8100. 

Jan. 1, 1858. — False alarm, from the burning of a chimney near 
the City Hall — house owned by Mr. H. M. Moore. 

Jan. 30. Fire at the house of Mr. Joseph Mansur, on Cross 
street — roof of the house burnt off. Fire occasioned by a defect 
in the chimney, in the attic. Damage to house, &c, about $250. 

The Fire Apparatus of the city is located as follows : 

Concord, No. 2. — Near the State Prison, at the north end of 
State street ; has five hundred and fifty feet of hose in good repair. 
No. of members, 60. 

Merrimack, No. 3. — Near Abbott's Coach Manufactory, south 
end of Main street ; has five hundred feet of hose in good order. 
No. of members, 60. 

Penacook, No. 4. — On Warren street ; has six hundred feet of 
hose in good order. No. of members, 55. 

Cataract, No. 6. — At West Concord ; has four hundred feet of 
good hose and one hundred feet of old hose. No. of members, 37. 

Old Fort, No. 7. — At East Concord ; has three hundred feet 
of hose. In each of my annual reports I have called the attention 
of the city government to the small amount of hose furnished to 
this engine, but as yet no definite action has been taken in the 
matter. No. of members, 43. 

Pioneer, No. 8. — At Fisherville ; has five hundred feet of hose, 
all in good condition. No. of members, 50. 

Hook and Ladder No. 1. — Is located in the same building with 
Engine No. 4, on Warren street. No. of members, 45. 

There are also two old engines belonging to the city, one at the 
north (No 1,) and the other (No. 5,) at the south end of Main 
street, used by young gentlemen of from 15 to 18 years of age. 
At the fire on Cross street, one of these companies (No. 5,) did 
efficient service. 

Some of the hose belonging to the engines in the main village 
of the city has been in use a long time, and often gives out when 
we most need it, but owing to the extraordinary high price of 
leather, I have thought it good economy not to recommend the pur- 
chase of any new hose. The prospect now is that they may be 
purchased cheaper during the coming season, and I would therefore 



37 

recommend that Engines Nos. 2, 3, and 4, be furnished with 100 
feet of new hose each, and No. 7 with at least 150 feet additional. 
Reservoirs. — In addition to the reservoirs heretofore construct- 
ed by the city, (for location of which sec Chief Engineer's Report 
of 1857,) there have been constructed two new ones, one on 
Thompson street, near the residence of Mr. E. Chickering, at an 
expense of $143-22 ; and the other in the rear of the City Hall, 
at an expense of $146, one half of which was paid by the county 
not including the stone, which were taken from the City Hall lot 
for the body of the reservoir. Both of the above are well located, 
and will be full of water in the dryest seasons. 

The places where reservoirs are most needed at the present time, 
it is believed by the Board of Engineers, are on Centre street, in 
the vicinity of Union or Spring street. One could be constructed 
there probably for about the cost of the one on Thompson street. A 
reservoir is also much needed on Merrimack street, or on the high 
land near the residence of A. B. Holt, Esq., but the great difficulty 
has been, and still is, to get a suitable supply of water, and as yet 
the Board of Engineers have been unable to get such terms for 
supplying it as would justify them in recommending an appropria- 
tion for that purpose, although no part of the city is more exposed 
than this, now almost entirely covered with large and expensive 
wooden buildings. 

During the past year I have been under great obligations to the 
Assistant Engineers for their promptness on all occasions, both at 
fires and at other times. In cases of fire much depends upon the 
judgment and activity of this branch of our Fire Department. 

The entire apparatus of the city has been kept by the stewards 
of the various companies to the entire satisfaction of the Board of 
Engineers. 

All which is respectfully submitted, 

TRUE OSGOOD, Chief Engineer.

REPOBT 

OF THE 

TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



The Trustees of the Public Library present this their annual re- 
port for the year ending January 23, 1858 : — 

During the past year the Public Library has been opened to the 
use of our citizens. We are happy to say that its advantages have 
been very largely enjoyed. The full attendance at the library 
room during the hours of delivery, and the avidity of the demand 
for books have attested that a Public Library is an institution im- 
peratively demanded by the intellectual wants of our people. 

Since the report of the Trustees, in March last, 370 volumes have 
been added to the collection of books ; making the whole number 
of volumes in the Library, 2291. The whole number of volumes 
donated to the Library is 584 ; of these some 550 are to be reckoned 
rather as hooks for reference, than for general circulation and read- 
ing ; so that there are now upon our shelves, of the latter class, 
some 1741 volumes. 

The sum paid out, thus far, for books is 81266,99. To this sum 
may be added $180,01, for books received or ordered, and pay- 
ment for which will shortly be made by the Treasurer, making the 
amount expended for books $1447,00. The books ordered but not 
received will make an addition of some 80 volumes to the number 
above mentioned. There still remains about $100, which is reserv- 
ed to be expended, by degrees, in the purchase of such valuable 
books, as may be suggested by individuals from time to time, or of 
such new publications as will naturally be sought after by the read- 
ing public. It has been deemed advisable to retain something for 



44 

this purpose, from the money already in hand, at least until some 
appropriation may be made for the benefit of the Library. 

There was some reason to expect that the Library would, ere this, 
have been the recipient of certain gifts of money from generous" 
minded persons who had given encouragement that their liberality 
would take this direction. And there is no reason to doubt that, at 
some future time, something may be realized from that source. 
However this may be, it is but reasonable that the city government 
should foster the Public Library. It is a fountain of good in our 
midst, of which all our people may drink. Shall its mind-invigorat- 
ing waters be dried up for the want of proper means of supply ? In 
common with our schools, it should be the object of the most liber- 
al regard of the municipality in which its good influences are dis- 
pensed. We would earnestly and respectfully urge that an appro- 
priation be early made by the city government, for its benefit. 

It may be expected that the small subscription of twenty-five cents 
per annum for admission to the privilege of the Library, will, in fu- 
ture, for some time at least, as it has already done, pay the salary 
of the Librarian, and defray other incidental expenses likely to arise. 
There is still remaining a balance of the amount already appropriat- 
ed by the City, for fitting up the Library room, which will probably 
be more than sufficient to defray any expense arising in that direc- 
tion during the coming year. But what we most want is an increase 
of our list of books. The foundation of a Library in the various 
departments of letters, has been laid ; we desire now to erect the 
superstructure. We trust that, for the honor of our city, the noble 
undertaking shall not necessarily be abandoned from want of sea- 
sonable appropriations. 

Mr. Capen, who performed, in a most acceptable manner, the du- 
ties of Librarian, resigned his place in November last. The Trus- 
tees have succeeded in obtaining the services of Mr. Frederick S. 
Crawford, in the same capacity, and, in this, deem themselves 
fortunate. 

We would take this opportunity to express our obligations to Mrs. 
Sigourney of Hartford, Ct., for her present of a copy of one of her 
works entitled " Past Meridian." Aside from its intrinsic excel- 
lence, in all respects, as a book, it is worthy of a choice and honor- 
able place in our alcoves, as a memento of the kindly consideration 
towards the Library, of one of the best, as well as most gifted, of 
American women. 



45 



The Treasurer's statement of the financial condition of the Libra 
ry is herewith appended. 

Trusting that the perpetual maintenance of a Public Library -will 

receive due consideration from the City Council, and from all who 

regard the best welfare of our city, we respectfully submit our report.
