good repair. No. of members, 60. 

Cataract, No. 6. — At West Concord ; has 400 feet of good 
hose, and 100 feet of old hose. No. of members, 40. 

Old Fort, No. 7. — At East Concord, has 300 feet of hose in 
good repair. No. of members, 40. 

Pioneeer, No. 8. — At Fisherville ; has 500 feet of hose in good 
order. No. of members, 50. 

Hook and Ladder, No. 1. — Is located in the same building with 
Engine Company No. 4, on Warren street. No. of members, 50. 

There are also two old engines belonging to the city ; one at 
the north, (No. 1,) the other, (No. 5,) at the south end, in the hands 
of young gentlemen from 15 to 18 years of age. These small en- 
gines, in many places in the city can, and no doubt will, do good 
service. 

For the location of reservoirs I would refer to the Chief Engineer's 
report of 1857 and 1858. We have found it necessary during the 
past season, owing to the streets being raised, to raise the mouths 
of a number of the reservoirs, and cement them ; we have also 
taken from the one near Mr. F. N. Fisk's house, some five feet of 
clay. There are others which should be cleaned out. The reser- 
voir near the South Church was drained in about 15 or 20 minutes, 
at Mr. Chandler's fire. We are of opinion that a drain running from 
Messrs. Clough and Coming's Block, and near that reservoir, must 
have injured it very much. 

The places where reservoirs are most needed at this time, in the 
opinion of the Board of Engineers, are as follows : A reservoir is 
needed very much indeed on the hill, near Mr. A. B. Holt. There 
is located in that vicinity one hundred thousand dollars worth of 
taxable property, without any protection in the shape of a reservoir, 



40 

in case of fire. The Board of Engineers have received estimates 
showing that a reservoir of sufficient capacity to supply two engines 
for two hours, could be built and supplied with water for $475 or 
$500 ; and they are of opinion that one should be built as soon 
as possible. They would also recommend that one be built at the 
corner of Spring and Centre streets. A reservoir is very much 
needed in Fisherville, on the hill west of the village. A plank res- 
ervoir could, in the opinion of the Board, be built tor 100 dollars, 
and perhaps less, and the citizens will supply it with water without 
any expense to the city. The Board recommend the building of 
one in that place. 

With regard to the sum paid annually to the firemen, the Board 
would recommend that it be paid in instalments of 17 cents per 
month, for the time they belong to the company, to avoid difficul- 
ties which exist at the present time with regard to their pay. 

I would tender my sincere thanks to the Board of Engineers for 
their prompt and efficient aid on all occasions. I would do the 
same also to all the firemen composing the different companies ; 
they have done their duty on all occasions with promptness and ef- 
ficiency. 

The apparatus has been kept by the stewards of the different 
companies to the entire satisfaction of the Board of Engineers. 
All which is respectfully submitted. 
OSCAR G. INGALLS, Chief Engineer.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



[For the year ending Jan. 27, 1859.] 

A good measure of prosperity has attended the City Library, du- 
ring the past year. Its records show a good number of subscribers, 
and tbe books upon its shelves have been sought with an avidity that 
attests the indispensableness of the institution to supply the intellec- 
tual wants of our community. The usefulness of the library haa 
been somewhat hindered by the lack of means to supply it with 
many books, the possession of which is desirable. However, the 
Trustees have attempted to make the most of the means at their 
disposal, and have, from time to time, made such additions to the 
Library, as were most imperatively demanded. 

During the past year, 410 volumes have been added by purchase, 
and 76 by donation. The total number of volumes now in the Li- 
brary is 2778. Of these 2162 volumes are for general reading and 
circulation, and 616 are more particularly adapted for reference, 
having been donated to the Library at sundry times. By the Treas- 
urer's report it appears that $228-16 has been expended for books ; 
to this amount should be added the sum of about $70 upon orders 
drawn but not paid at the time the report was made, making a total 
of $298-16. 

The other principal expenses for the year have been the Catalogue, 
(the sales of which vwill in time, make full reimbursement), the re- 
binding of books, and the compensation of the Librarian. For the 
payment of the Librarian and the rebinding of books, (which last 
item has amounted, the last year to $90-28,) it may be safe to rely 
upon subscriptions and fines. But to obtain the proper yearly 
supplies of books, the institution must look to other sources. Du- 
ring the past year the Library has received an appropriation of $50 
from the city Treasury. If the Library is to be properly sustained, 
and made to answer at all the purposes for which it was established, 
an appropriation of at least $300 a year must be made for some 
years, by the city government, for its benefit. The expected gifts 
of money from certain persons w'tio have intimated their purpose of 
making bestowments upon the Library, have not yet been received, 
and it is a matter of uncertainty when they will be. Until they be 
received, the Library must look for maintenance in respect of the 
supply of books to the city government that brought it into existence. 
In every other city, the Public Library is the object of liberal an- 
nual appropriations, shall it be an exception in this ?

The following are some of the principal donations of books du- 
ring the past year: 

One Mass., Agricultural Report 1857; 1 Ohio Agricultural Re- 
port, 1857 ; 1 Maine Agricultural Report, 1857 ; 1 Maine Agricul- 
tural Reports 1856 ; 6 vols., New Hampshire Agricultural Report,

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CITY HALL. 



The Committee appointed March 15, 1851, to purchase land, and 
in conjunction with the county of Merrimack, to cause to be erected 
thereon, and on land of said county, a suitable Court House, and 
City Hall, respectfully 

REPORT : 

That they purchased for the aforesaid purpose, of John W. Noyes, 
the Dearborn lot, so called, for the sum of ($6330) sixty-three 
hundred and thirty dollars ; of the late Nathan Stickney, another 
adjoining tract of land, for the sum of one dollar ; and at a later 
date of Seth Eastman, Agent, the McDaniel estate for the sum of 
($1163) eleven hundred and sixty-three dollars. 

That they subsequently concluded an agreement with said county 
for the erection of a Court House and City Hall, upon this and land 
of said county ; said county to share equally with the city of Con- 
cord the expense of erecting said building, which agreement is now

There is an unsettled claim of H. M. Moore, not included in the above. The 
nominal amount is £2-178, but it is believed that the sum which has been offeree* 
him in settlement (5700) covers all which is justly due, one half of this claim is 
to be paid by the county. 

All of which is respectfully submitted, 

RICHARD BRADLEY, 
JOSEPH B. WALKER, 
JOHN ABBOTT, 
J. MINOT, 

DAN'L H. FLETCHER, 
JOSEPH LOW.
