REPORT 

OF THE 

COlVriVriTTEE OlSr FINA^lSrCE. 



The Joint Standing Committee on Finance, in conformity witb 
the requirements of the Ordinance prescribing their duties, " es- 
tablishing a system of accountability in the expenditures of the 
city," submit to the City Council their Annual Report of the Re- 
ceipts and Expenditures of the financial year, ending February 1, 
1862. 

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- 
ings 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.

NINTH 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 proper- 
ty of the Farm, respectfully submit the following Ninth Annual 
Report : 

Appraised value of farm and buildings in 1861, $8,000 00 

Appraised value of personal property in 1861, 2.430 91 

Total, $10,430 91 

Appraised value of farm and buildings in 1862, $8,000 00 

Appraised value of personal pi'operty in 1862, 2.537 39 

Total, $10,537,39 

Number of paupers at the farm Feb. 1st, 1862, 23 

Average number for the year, 23 

Whole number for the year, 35 

Number lodged one night or more, 75 

Died, 4 



Regarding the management and husbandry of the farm your 
Committee are unanimous in the opinion that it is well managed. 
The prudent management of the household affairs, and the content- 
ment, and comfort of the family reflect much credit on the Superin- 
tendent and Matron, Mr. and Mrs. Grilman. Quite a large proportion 
of the family are aged persons and children, consequently the 



88 



Overseer and Matron are almost destitute of help, there being but 
one man capable of performing any labor on the farm, the overseer 
was obliged to hire help a large portion of the time the past sea- 
son. The overseer has performed much extra labor the past sea- 
son in relaying with new pipe the Aqueduct to the house and barn, 
and in rubbling the bank of the river, having drawn about one 
hundred and seventy-five yards of rubble, still much more is need- 
ed.

CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 



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



\ In accordance with the requirements of the Ordinance of the 
city, my report for the Financial year ending Feb. 1st, 1862, is 
herewith presented: 

The Department has been called out during the year eleven 
times, as follows : 

March 4, 1861. — House and Barn of Isaac Silver, loss $600 ; 
partially insured. This was undoubtedly the work of an incendiary, 
as the house was unoccupied. 

June 26. — Fire in Union Block. Damage to stock and build- 
ing about $300. Insured. 

August 20. — In the attic of Hutchins' Block, recently occupied 
as the printing office of the Democratic Standard ; damage by fire 
and water about $2,500. 

Same night. — Slight fire at the shop of Robinson & Brothers. 
Damage $100. Insured. 

September 10. — Alarm caused by burning brush at Blossom 
Hill Cemetery. 

Same day. — At Concord and Northern Railroad Car Houses : 
loss. Northern R. R., $12,000 ; insured $9,000. Concord R. R., 
loss $29,000 ; insured $22,000. 

September 27. — At store of James M. Blake ; damage to build- 
ing and stock $600. Insured $350. 

October 4. — At corner of Main and Centre streets, destroying 
the dwelling house and ofllice of Dr. C. P. Gage, Marble Work of 
Day & Co., and the Merrimack House. Loss $8,000. Insured 
$2,400. 

October 7. — False alarm. 

November 5. — Load of hay on Cross street. Incendiary. 



November 14. — At J. R. Hill's Harness 3Ianufacturing Estab- 
lishment, which was totally destroyed ; the dwelling houses of 
Chase Plill and Benjamin Damon, the shoe shop of Joseph French, 
Gas office, shop of Chase Hill, occupied by himself as a leather 
store and by Mrs. M. M. Smith, Millinery. Loss $45,000. Insured 
$38,100. 



It will be seen by the above account that the city has been 
particularly unfortunate during the past year. Most of the build- 
ings destroyed have been in the compact part of the city, the larg- 
er portion old wooden structures, and standing closely together, 
it is a matter of wonder that the loss has not been still greater, 
and that the fires have been confined to as small limits as they 
were. 

In May last, in obedience to a resolution of the City Council, I 
procured four hundred feet of double riveted leather Hose, which 
was equally divided between engines No. 2, and No. 3. 

At a meeting of the City Council in November last, an ordinance 
was passed authorizing the Mayor and myself to purchase a steam 
fire engine, procure one thousand feet of hose, and a suitable hose 
carriage, extend the iron pipes of the Northern and Concord Kail- 
roads to Main street, and build a resevoir on Main near Warren 
street, &c. The engine and hose have been contracted for and 
win be ready early in the month of March. 

The recent action of the City Government would seem to indi- 
cate an entire change in the Department, at no distant day, sub- 
stituting in the compact portion of the city steamers, in place of the 
hand engines now in use. In orcjer to carry out completely this 
change a considerable expenditure of money will be required, both 
for the purchase of engines and their apparatus and for the erec- 
tion of suitable buildings for the machines, and stable for horses, 
&c., if they are to be run by horses. It is a matter by no means 
clear to my mind which would be the cheapest and best to run 
even steamers by men or horses, as they are manufactured service- 
able for either method. 

I must again call the attention of the city government to the subject 
of supplying the thickly settled section of the city with water, for 
notwithstanding all that has been done in that direction we are 
still very deficient in our supplies. 



During the last year two Reservoirs were constructed by the 
committee appointed for that purpose ; one at the corner of Cen- 
tre and Union streets, which from the time of its completion last 
fall has been always full and will undoubtedly remain so, the other 
on Washington street near Walnut street, supplied from a running 
brook and now well filled, but I am apprehensive may possibly 
have to be cemented to make it tight in dry seasons. 

The Chief Engineer is under renewed obligations to the Board 
of Assistant Engineers for their cordial co-operation at all times 
with him and for the ready and effective manner in which they 
have performed their duties during the past year. 

The several companies connected with the Department are in 
good condition with full ranks, and are entitled to great credit 
for their promptness and efficiency. 

Having been connected with the Fire Department of this city 
for more than thirty years, and with the Engineer branch nearly 
all the time since its organization, I think the time has now ar- 
rived when I should retire from the head of the Department, and 
after thanking the City Council for the many acts of kindness and 
confidence they have shown me, would respectfully say that I do 
not consider myself a candidate for re-appointment to that respon- 
sible office. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

During the past year considerable labor has been expended up- 
on the improvement and extension of avenues and walks. The 
culvert under Maple Avenue has been enlarged and relaid. North 
Avenue has been graded and prepared for use by carriages and 
many new foot paths have been made in different parts of the 
grounds. The forests have mostly been cleared of dead brush 
and leaves and large quantities of worthless bushes have been 
removed from them. The sum of forty-five dollars and seventeen 
cents has been expended in improving and preparing for occu- 
pancy a specimen lot, of neat and chaste design, but of moderate 
cost. This will be disposed of, when wanted, for its cost and 
interest of its appraisal and improvements, the object had in view 
by the Committee of securing such a lot to the Cemetery grounds, 
having been attained. Several important private improvements 
have been commenced by the proprietors of lots the year past, 
and a portion of them have teen comjpleted. 

The limited amount of means at the Committee's disposal has 
not warranted the undertaking of any very extensive improve- 
ments by them during that period. Several however, of some 
magnitude, should be made at the earliest day practicable. The 
front stone wall, on State street, should be continued on Eumford 
street, for the protection of the grounds from vagrant cattle and 
horses strolling in that vicinity. As this exposure arises from the 
extension of the last named street, the erection of this wall may 
belong more properly to the City of Concord than to this Com- 
mittee. The extension of the walls at Wood's Brook culvert and 
the changing of the street grades at and near that point, under the 
direction of Mayor Humphrey, has been an important service, not 
only to the public generally, but to all in particular having occa- 
sion to visit this Cemetery. The present fence upon the North 
side of the Cemetery is a temporary one and should be replaced 
by a permanent wall. It is hoped that this may be done during 
the coming year. 

The Committee, who, some years since made purchase of this 
Cemetery, were restricted by the City Council to the buying of a 
tract of land not exceeding thirty acres in extent. They were 
compelled, therefore, to forego the purchase of about one and a 
half acres of excellent land notching into the present Cemetery 
grounds at the South West corner, and rendering the boundary 
lines unsightly and inconvenient. This tract can still be had for 
about two hundred and twenty-five dollars and its purchase is 
respectfully commended to the favorable consideration of the City 
Council, not so much for the additional land it would secure, as 
for the saving it would insure in fencing and for the great|improve- 
ment in shape of that part of the Cemetery.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY, 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1862. 

To the Citij Council of the City of Concord : 

lu accordance witli the ordinance requiring an annual state- 
ment of the condition of the Public Library, from the Trustees, 
the undersigned respectfully present the following report for the 
year ending January 31, 1862 : 

The number of volumes belonging to the Library, January 31, 
1861, was 3,225. Dui'ing the past year 370 volumes have been 
added by purchase and 10 by donation ; making the whole number 
3,605, of which number 2,976 volumes are intended for circula- 
tion and are subject to the calls of subscribers. Of the remain- 
der, 624 volumes are permanently retained in the Library for 
purposes of reference, and 5, which have not been on the shelves 
for more than a year, are considered lost. The small amount of 
losses since the organization of the Library is the best evidence of 
the care and vigilance of the Librarian. It is not known that any 
losses have occurred during the past year. A few books were not 
in place at the time of the annual examination, but they will prob- 
ably be returned or paid for by those to whom they are charo-ed. 
The number of subscribers on the books of the Librarian for the 
past year has been four hundred fifty-three. 

The accompanying report of the Treasurer will show the receipts 
and expenditures on account of the Library during the year. 

The importance of our Library as an institution for the diffu- 
sion of intelligence, though admitted by all, is probably underra- 
ted by many. That it may accomplish its object tolerably well it 
needs constant enlargement. At the present time when the 
resources of the nation are taxed for the suppression of a rebel- 
lion whose growth to gigantic proportions was rendered possible 
only by the ignorance of those who were drawn into it by wily 
traitors, there would seem to be no need of argument to show that 
all considerations of true economy, patriotism, and philanthropy 
commend the Library to your generous support.
