REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE, 



Tlie Joint Standing Committee on Finaiiee, in conformity with 
the requirements of the Ordinance prescribing their duties, " estab- 
lishing a system of accountability in the expenditures of the city," 
submit to the City Council their annual report of the receipts and 
expenditures of the financial year ending February 1, 1860. 

We have examined the Treasurer's books, and those of the City 
Clerk, and find that all payments therein recorded are duly authen- 
ticated with appropriate vouchers, and that the several items, 
footing and balances, are correctly cast, and stated, and that the 
books of those officers have been faithfully kept, and with a system 
that cannot fail to give satisfaction to the tax-payers of the city.

Success in agricultural management is evinced by the abundant 
products of the farm and the good condition in which they 
were harvested. The former reputation for neatness and order in 
household affairs is still sustained, while the wants of the poor 
have been promptly and kindly regarded. Ministers of the gospel 
and others, caring for the religious interests of the poor, in their 
occasional visits, have found a welcome reception. No one has 
been more responsible for visiting the sick, attendance at funerals, 
and conducting religious exercises at the farm, than Rev. Asa P. 
Tenney, whose gratuitous labors have been enjoyed during twenty- 
seven years. 

Your committee believe that a source of income exists, which 
has not yet been duly appreciated by the City. The granite ledge 
near the center of the farm is abundant in its resources for build- 
ing, and easy of access to the Railroad. Three acres of valuable 
pasture land have been broken for the benefit of the quarry, which 
is wrought with considerable profit to the laborer, and should not 
fail to make adequate returns to the City Treasury. 

Another subject claiming the attention of the City, is loss of 
land by the action of Merrimack river, diverted from its original 
course in the construction of the Northern Railroad. The only 
remedy is found in rubbling the bank, which should be done as 
soon as practicable. 

Respectfully submitted,

SUMMARY : 

Estimated losses, - - - _ . $89,750 
Insurance, ---.--. 44,900 



Net losses, ...--- $44,850 

The undesigned with a deputation from the Board of Engineers 
have made a personal inspection of the houses and apparatus of the 
Department and find the same, very generally, in good order 
and condition. They have appraised the property of the city in 
charge of the Department and subjoin an estimate of the same. 
In this estimate is not included furniture and fixtures, which it was 
thought unnecessary to present in detail. Suffice it to say that the 
houses are comfortably and conveniently furnished. In this connec- 
tion and to supply deficiencies noted, I would recommend the pur- 
chase of 300 feet leather hose for Engine Co. No. 4, and a set (4) 
of oil suits for Concord Railroad Hydrant and Hose Co. 

I cannot too urgently impress upon the City government the 
want of water for the extinguishment of fires, in certain localities, 
more particularly in the compact part of the city. The views of 
the Board of Engineers on this subject were fully expressed to the 
Water Committee, and will be found embodied in the report recent- 
ly made by that committee, to which I would respectfully refer you. 

In obedience to instructions from the city authorities the two 
small engines formerly in possession of the boys have been taken in 
charge by the Engineers and securely housed. They have been 
advertised and negociations for their sale are pending. 

The ordinance recently adopted by the City Council in relation 
to the Fire Department, has met the cordial approval of the several 
companies, and I do not doubt will result favorably to both parties 
in interest, and prove advantageous, personally to the firemen, as 
weU as to the security and pecuniary interests of the city. 

The undersigned has been ably seconded in all his efforts by the 
Assistant Engineers, and his official duties have been greatly lighten- 
ed by their promptservices at fires, and the unity which has prevailed

in the councils of the Board. Declining a re-appointment, from 
prudential motives, he cannot permit this occasion to pass without 
a return of his acknowledgements for the hearty support invariably 
tendered by the members of the entire Department, and to congrat- 
ulate them upon the harmony and good feeling at this time so 
universally felt and displayed.

REPOET OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC 
LIBRARY. 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING JANUARY 28, 1860. 

To the City Gouncil of the City of Concord : 

In accordance with the requirements of the Ordinance establish- 
ing a Public Library, the undersigned present this their report of 
the condition of the institution for the year ending Jan. 28, 1860. 

During the past year, 232 volumes have been added, by pur- 
chase, to the Library. The whole number of books for general 
reading and circulation ig 2345. Besides these, there are 616 vol- 
umes of books of reference which have been presented at sundry 
times. The whole number of books in the Library is, therefore, 
2961. 

The appropriation of $200 from the City Treasury, the present 
year, has been of indispensable service in supplying the Library 
with the books required to meet the demands of the constantly 
increasing number of subscribers. An appropriation of this amount 
at least, should be made annually, for some years to come, if the 
institution is to be sustained. The amount received from subscrip- 
tions is merely suflScient to meet the compensation of the Librarian 
and the expense of re-binding books, and other incidentals. For 
the supply of books, the Library must mainly rely, for the present, 
upon aid from the city government. We trust that its reliance will 
not be vain. 

The Trustees feel that they have been fortunate in retaining 
during the year, the services of so faithful and efficient a Librarian 
as Mr. Frederick S. Crawford. It is '^o be hoped that he will 
long continue to occupy a position which he so admirably fills. In 
June last, E. S. Towle, Esq., who had acceptably performed the 
duties of Treasurer, resigned, and J. C. A. Wingate, Esq., was 
chosen to succeed him. 



46 



We would here acknowledge the donation of one volume, enti- 
tled " Kenneth," and seventy-five cents in money, from Mrs. J. A. 
Eames, of this city. 

The statement of the Treasurer, J. C. A. Wingate, Esq., here- 
unto appended, shows the financial condition of the Library.

I respectfully suggest for consideration, whether some additional 
regulations would not be useful to prevent the escape of offenders, 
who are sentenced to the House of Correction. The frequency of 
such escapes during the past year has induced the Court in some 
instances to commit to Jail, persons, for whom the House of Cor- 
rection would otherwise have been a more suitable and less expen- 
sive place of punishment.
