REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE. 



The Joint Standing Committee on Finance, 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, 1861. 

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, foot- 
ing and balances, are correctly cast, and stated, and that the books 
of those ofiicers have been faithfully kept, and with a system that 
cannot fail to give satisfaction to the tax-payers of the city.

Cash in the Treasurer's hands, (including endorse- 




ments on outstanding orders,) 


7,645-06 




$72,179-02 



The apparent diffel-ehce between the Receipts and Expenditures, arises from 
the fact that the City Clerk's books and those of the Treasurer, under the 
present system of keeping them, unavoidably disagree at the close of the 
financial year. 

The Clerk charges all orders when drawn, but the Treasurer meets them 
according to the state of the Treasury. Thus orders, partly, but not fully 
paid till after the close of the financial year, would not be found upon the 
Treasurer's books.

EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 



COMMITTEE ON THE CITY FARM. 



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

The undersigned, Joint Standing Committee on the City Farm, 
having attended to the duty of taking an inventory of the prop- 
erty of the Farm, respectfully submit the following Eighth Annual 
Report : 

Appraised value of farm and buildings in 1860, $8000-00 

Appraised value of personal property in 1860, 3031-62 

Total, $11031-62 

Appraised value of farm and buildings in 1861, $8000-00 

Appraised value of personal property in 1861 2430*91

The Keport giving items is on file at the City Clerk's office. 

Regarding the husbandry of the farm, the condition and quan- 
tity of the products, the prudent management of household affairs, 
the quiet and comfort of the family, your Committee are happy to 
award the Superintendent and Matron, Mr. and Mrs. Gilman, a full 
share of commendation. 

The inventory is somewhat less than it was last year, which is 
accounted for from the fact that most of the personal property has 
been appraised lower than in former years, the value of the stock 
is less, and several items found in previous inventories have been 
entirely omitted. 

An efficient committee having in charge the disposal of stone 
from the farm quarry, will doubtless make to the City all due 
returns. 

Loss of land from the action of Merrimack river — a subject 
presented in the last report — is still a matter requiring prompt 
attention. 

Eespectfully submitted,

CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 

To His Honor the Ilayor and Board of Aldermen of the City of 

Concord : 

In accordance with an Ordinance of the city I herewith submit 
my Annual Eeport for the year ending February 1, 1861. 

During the year past a portion or all of the Department has been 
called out for service, as follows : 

March 31. — Barn of Samuel Herbert, on Middle Intervale — 
total loss, $200— insured $100. 

April 2. — Fire at Stickney's Building, on Main street — slight 
loss, about $100. 

May 2. — Fire at house of Ivory Hall ; damage to roof, loss 
trifling. 

May 24. — Fire at lumber barn of L. Downing & Sons, Main 
street — on roof — damage trifling. 

August 30. — Fire at old Wilkins house, south end Main street ; 
loss trifling. 

September 11. — Fire at house of Jeremiah Cotter; damage 
small ; insured. 

October 13. — Fire at residence of 0. L. Sanborn, Main street ; 
partial loss. Damage by fire and water about $3,000 ; fully 
insured. 

November 4. — False alarm, caused by the burning of a chimney 
on Cross street. 

December 3. — Fire at house of Henry Smith, rear of Main 
street ; slight loss, insured. 

January 26. — Fire at boarding house owned by Stephen M. Vail- 
Partial loss, estimated at $1-000 ; fully insured. 

The city has been very fortunate in relation to fires during the 
year, no extensive conflagration having occurred. Probably the 
entire loss will not exceed $4,500; the full amount of which was 
covered by insurance. 

An appropriation not to exceed $1,200 was made sometime last 
summer, for the construction of four reservoirs, and His Honor 
Mayor Willard, A. B. Holt, Esq., and myself, were appointed a 
committee for that purpose. Two of these have been constructed, 
and a portion of the material for the third purchased, but owing 



30 

to the wetness of the last part of the season they were not com- 
pleted. The two completed are — one at the corner of Pleasant 
and State streets, of large size, built of stone, 25 feet by 10 by 8 
feet, which, in the dryest seasons, will be nearly full of water, at a 
cost of $275. The other is on School street, near the residence of 
A. B. Holt, Esq., built of brick, cemented, 20 feet circle and arch, 
and 13 feet deep, to be filled by aqueduct, at a cost of $270. The 
other two will be completed as soon as the coming season will ad- 
mit, unless the new City Government shall withhold the appropria- 
tion. 

The entire fire apparatus of the city is in about the same condi- 
tion as set forth by the able and detailed report of the Chief Engi- 
neer of last year, A. B. Holt, Esq., to which you are referred for 
further particulars, it being thought unnecessary to reprint them 
in full in this report. 

By a resolution passed by the City Government, making an 
appropriation for the same, I purchased 316 feet of the best quality 
of double riveted leading hose for Engine No. 4, at an expense of 
$330. Also, by the same authority, I procured a new first class 
hose carriage for Engine No. 6, at an expense of $75, and the old 
carriage. 

The expenses of the Department for the year are shown in the 
following table :

From which it will be seen that the bills for the entire service 
are less than $2,000, and more than $500 within the estimate and 
appropriations by the City Government. 

The hose of both Engine Cos. No. 2 and No. 3 has become old ; 
all of No. 3 leather hose being twelve years old, and some of No. 
2 is much older than that, but still a portion is in good condition, 
but cannot be relied on with certainty at all times. I would, there- 
fore, by advice of the Board of Engineers, recommend that 200 
feet of new leather hose be purchased for each of said Engines. 

The Fire Department of this city is in good condition, the most 
perfect harmony pervading all branches of it. 

I would here tender to the Board of Engineers my sincere and 
hearty thanks for their uniform assistance and co-operation in every 
thing pertaining to this Department and the best interests of the 
city, and also to the officers and members of the various companies ' 
for the promptness and energy with which they have performed 
their duty during the past year. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

The First Annual Report of the Cemetery Committee. 



To the City Gmincil of the City of Concord : 

The Cemetery Committee respectfully present this their 

FIRST ANNUAL REPORT. 

By an Ordinance passed February 4th, 1860, both the old Cem- 
etery, near the Methodist Biblical Institute, and the tract of ground 
recently purchased of Hon. F. N. Fisk, for a new Cemetery, were 
intrusted to the care of this Committee, whose duties in relation 
to the same, were therein specially defined. A brief account of 
their doings the past year is herein respectfully presented. 

BLOSSOM HILL CEMETERY. 

Early in April and as soon as the condition of the ground ren- 
dered it practicable, the Committee made a careful survey of the 
whole tract, to ascertain its condition and capacities of improve- 
ment for the purposes to which it had been devoted. Having 
carefully considered and determined upon a general plan, they 
proceeded at once to the construction of such main avenues and 
walks, as to them seemed necessary and desirable for the imme- 
diate occupancy of the grounds. They also caused to be laid out 
and accurately defined by stakes and rails (170) one hundred and 
seventy different lots, located in difi'erent sections of the grounds 
and of such sizes as past experience had shown to be most desir- 
able. These have all been appraised by the Committee, and vary 
in prices, according to size and location, from five to forty -five 
dollars each. One very large and eligible lot was appraised at and 
has since been sold for (123.33)one hundred and twenty-three dollars 
and thirty-three cents. Besides this, twenty others have been sold 
to different parties at an average price of (15.52) fifteen dollars 
and fifty-two cents per lot, and have also in every instance been 
paid for. 



37 



The receipts of this Cemetery from February 4, 1860, to Feb- 
ruary 6, 1861, have been 

From the sale of lots, $433.72 

From the sale of wood and timber, 15.00 



$448.72 
The expenditures during the same period for 

labor, lumber, surveying, etc., have been $410.05 



Leaving on hand and unexpended a balance of $38.67 

with which to commence the operations of 
the next year. 

This is as satisfactory a result perhaps as could have been an- 
ticipated. A commencement has been made, and what is of as 
much consequence to the success of the enterprise hereafter, a 
convenient, tasteful and satisfactory general plan of the grounds 
has been settled upon and in part executed. About a mile and a 
half of carriage avenues have been constructed, extending through 
all sections of the Cemetery, and are nearly all that will be needed 
for some years to come. Large quantities of brvs^: and other 
litter have been removed from the forest land, and &acli portions 
of the open ground as were not already in grass have been seeded 
down. 

Much however, yet remains to be done. By an agreement with 
Mr. Fisk, the Cemetery is to construct and maintain nearly all of 
the north fence, and the temporary one, constructed last Spring 
must soon be succeeded by another of a more permanent character. 
Another also is rendered necessary by the recent extension, by the 
city, of Walnut street, to the West Concord road. The enlarge- 
ment and rebuilding of the culvert under Maple Avenue, the con- 
struction of a dam across Woods Brook, the introduction of water 
to the higher parts of the grounds, the removal of surplus trees 
and the making of additional walks must ere long claim attention. 
But by a judicious expenditure of the receipts of the Cemetery 
from the sale of lots, in accordance with the terms of the Ordi- 
nance before alluded to,* the Committee feel confident, that at no 

* Sec. 5. They shall appraise every lot as surveyed, before the same shall 
be subject to sale. They shall likewise re-appraise the unsold lots from time 
to time, and no lot shall be sold for less than the appraisal, nor shall the 
appraisal in any case be less than five dollars. All money arising from the 
sale of lots shall be kept in a distinct fund, and the first proceeds to the 
amount of $1500 shall be exclusively appropriated to adding to, improving 



38 

very distant clay, tlie first cost of the lot and interest, together 
with all expenses for improvement, may have been paid from the 
sale of lots, and the citizens of Concord be possessed of one of 
the most accessible and beautiful cemeteries in the country. 

As a basis for the appraisal of lots, your Committee have taken 
the established price of lots in the Old Cemetery, and applying it 
to those of a medium quality in this, have varied from it, either 
way, as circumstances seemed to dictate. "While the prices are 
considerably lower than those established in many cemeteries of a 
like character, they yet hope that, they may prove sufficiently high 
to secure the important object contemplated by the city, of making 
it self-supporting. 

The Committee take pleasure in acknowledging the valuable 
services rendered them by J. C. Briggs, Esq., in laying out the 
grounds of this Cemetery, whose eminent ability as a Civil Engi- 
neer is fully equalled by his skill and taste as a Landscape Gar- 
dener. 

OLD CEMETERY. 

The west portion of the Old Cemetery was regularly laid out 
into paths, avenues and lots some twenty years ago. With one 
exception, these avenues and paths had not been graded at the 
beginning of the last summer The grounds wore the general 
appearance of neglect notwithstanding very many embellishments 
had been made upon individual lots. 

The whole number of lots which had been laid out was four 
hundred and thirty-five, almost every one of which was claimed 
and occupied. Upon an examination of the books in the office of 
the City Clerk, and from personal inquiries it appeared that one 
hundred and five of these had been paid for, while for the remain- 
ing three hundred and thirty nothing had been received by the 
city and no deeds had been given. The collection of the amounts 
thus due was committed to otir worthy City Treasurer, who, with 
a perseverance and zeal deserving of universal commendation, 
entered upon the work and has since collected the sum of $274.00 

and ornamenting the Cemetery grounds, and all proceeds after said amoiint 
shall be appropriated, one half to so improving and ornamenting the ceme- 
tery grounds, and one half to the payment of the prmcipal and interest of 
the original purchase money of said cemetery lot, till said principal and 
interest be paid. — Cemetery Ordinance, passed Feb. 4, 1860. 



39 

If to this sum there be added the sum of $381 collected 
by Old Cemetery Committee, since March, 1855, 381.00 



Making $655.00 

it will appear that there has been received from the sale of 
lots in this cemetery from March, 1855 to Feb. 4th, 1861, the sum 
of six hundred and fifty-five dollars. It also appears by the ac- 
counts of the Treasurer and Acting Treasurer of the Cemetery 
Committees, that there has been expended during that period, for 
water, repairs of fence grading walks and avenues, etc.. the sum 
of (299.94) two hundred and ninety-nine dollars and ninety-four 
cents, leaving unexpended and mostly in the hands of the City 
Treasurer the sum of three hundred and fifty-five dollars and six 
cents. To this should be added the further sum of forty.two dol- 
lars and thirty-nine cents due this cemetery from Joseph Brown 
for lots sold by him. If this amount, increased as far as may be 
by subsequent receipts from sale of lots occupied but not yet paid 
for, were invested in bonds of the city and set apart as a perma- 
nent fund, for the benefit of this cemetery, its annual interest 
would probably be sufficient to still farther embellish and ever keep 
in good order its grounds. 

The amount expended by the Committee upon the Old Ceme- 
tery from January 1, 1860 to Feb. 4, 1861, is $108.13, mostly for 
water, repairs of fence and for construction of avenues and walks. 

From the past year's experience, the Committee are led to be- 
lieve that these Cemeteries may be kept self-supporting, provided 
they are judiciously managed and their income, carefully collected, 
is devoted to the purposes prescribed in the Ordinance before 
alluded to. 

At a meeting of the Committee held for the purpose of deter- 
mining by lot the terms for which its several members were ap- 
pointed, Enos Blake drew the three years term, George B. Chandler 
drew the two years term and Joseph B. Walker drew the one year 

term.

HEPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC 
LIBRARY. 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1861. 



To the City Council of the City of Concord : 

In accordance witli the ordinance requiring an annual statement 
of the condition of the Public Library from the Trustees, the un- 
dersigned present the following report for the year ending January 
31, 1861. 

The whole number of volumes in the Library now, amounts to 
3,225. Of this number, 616 volumes, donations, are books of 
reference rather than such as are adapted for general circulation, 
and hence are retained permanently in the Library. The number 
of volumes subject to the calls of subscribers, is 2,609, of which 
264 have been added during the past year. One of these volumes, 
" The Life and Correspondence of Clen. Stark," was a donation 
from G. Parker Lyon, Esq., and five volumes have been presented 
by Mr. E. C. Eastman. 

The number of subscribers to the Library at present, is 538 ; 
an increase, as the Librarian informs us, of nearly 20 per cent, 
over the previous year, while the increase in the number of circu- 
lating volumes is but a little more than 10 per cent. It has been 
a matter of surprise to us that small as our Library is in proportion 
to our population, it should awaken the interest it does ; especially 
when the increasing number of subscribers outstrips our own 
increasing ability to answer the calls for books. 

The means at our disposal for increasing the Library and meet- 
ing its necessary expenses, have been derived from your own 
appropriation of $200, from the generous efi"orts of the ladies in 
the summer by which they secure to us the sum of $151,64 and from 
the annual fees of subscribers, amounting the present year to 
$172,48. Administering the financial afi"airs of the Library as 
economically as possible, this last sum has amounted to some fifty 
dollars more than all the current expenses of the Library for the 
year ; meeting the salary of our efficient Librarian and the re-cov- 
ering and re-binding of books. 



41 



Accompanying this you will find a statement of the financial 
condition of the Library by the Treasurer. 

Feeling that our Public Library is eminently a Citizens' Institu- 
tion, since its subscribers, those availing themselves of its advan- 
tages, represent every class among us — feeling that it is worthy to 
be placed side by side with our public schools as a means for pro- 
moting general instruction, while it further contributes to the public 
good in what it does towards ministering to intellectual gratifica- 
tion, that noble craving of our natures and happy substitute for 
inferior amusements, we earnestly commend it to the increasing 
attention and fostering care of our City Government and citizens 
generally.
