THIRTEENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



COMMITTEE ON THE CITY FARM. 



To His Honor the Mayor and the City Council of the City of 
Concord : 

The undersigned, Joint Standing Committee on the City Farm, 
having attended to the duty assigned them of taking an inventory 
of the property at the Farm, respectfully submit the following

Your Committee were highly pleased with everything both in 
doors and out, at the Farm. A large portion of the inmates are 
young children and aged persons, but are well taken care of by 
the smart, energetic matron. Everything about the house looks 
neat and well taken care of. The farm seems to be in a prosper- 
ous condition, judging from the quantity of produce seen on the 



42 



premises. As a -whole, everytting on tlie premises speaks in high 
praise of the Superintendent and Matron, Mr. and Mrs. Gilman. 
During the year there has been a road laid out across the pas- 
ture of the Farm, and a number of house lots sold to the amount 
of about S2.000 00; but owing to the rise in value of real estate 
in this vicinity, your Committee did not deem it advisable to re- 
duce the valuation of the farm. 

Respectfully submitted,

CHIEF ENGIJN^EER'S REPORT. 



To the Honorable Mayor and Board of Aldermen of the City of 
Concord ; 

In accordance with an ordinance of the city of Concord, I here- 
with submit my Annual Report of the affairs of the Fire Depart- 
ment for the year ending February 1, 1866. 

There have been eleven fires and alarms, viz : 

February 1, 1865. Fire at the residence of George Clough, Esq., 
corner of Warren and Merrimack sts. Loss, $6,000 00. In- 
sured. 

April 1. Alarm from fire at the residence of B. Biddle on State 
street. Damage trifling. 

July 15. Fire at tannery of Messrs, Robinson & Sons. Loss 
$25,000; insured for $18,000. 

July 17. Fire at house of Mrs. Sawyer, on Spring street, occu- 
pied by E. P. Sawtelle and John Carter. Damage to house $500 ; 
insured. To furniture $200 ; not insured. 

August 1. Fire at carpenter shop of Clifford & Currier, rear of 
Stickney's (old) Block. Damage to tools and building $600. No 
insurance. The fire extended to the workshop of Robinson & 
Brothers, which was damaged to the amount of about $400. In- 
sured. 

Aug. 5. Alarm by lightning striking the house of W. P. Ford 
on Franklin street, occupied by John Kimball. Damage $25. 

Aug. 6. Fire in old court house building rear of Stickney 
Block, in box of shavings. Slight damage. 

Sept 2. Fire at State Prison. Damage $50. 

Sept. 26. Fire at American House stable — hay in stall. Dam- 
age slight. 

Oct. 18. Fire at rum shop of John Wall, on West street. 
Building owned by B. F. Duncklce. Loss, $500. 

Fire at building of Northern Railroad. Extinguished by city 
and railroad watchmen without a general alarm. 



49 

It will be seen by the foregoing, that the fires and alarms have 
been much less frequent than for some years past. The principal 
losses were the elegant residence of George Clough, Esq., and the 
tannery of Robinson & Sons. Both of which have been rebuilt. 

The deficiency of water and the inadequacy of reservoirs is 
every day becoming more apparent. Probably no city in New 
England is so poorly situated in its natural advantages of supply 
as ours. With the single exception of the large reservoir in the 
yard of the High School, and its connecting cisterns, little or no 
dependence can be placed upon others. The latter, during the 
fall and winter, owing to the peculiar state of the ground through 
which alone they are all filled, have been rendered unreliable and 
almost worthless. The necessity of an abundant supply of ru7i- 
ning tvater, carried to all parts of the compact portion of the city, 
is manifestly required, and I would recommend its introduction for 
fire purposes, from Little or Long Pond, as early as our pecuniary 
condition will admit. It would give a full head to the roofs of the 
highest buildings, and afi"ord an ample and sure supply. 

Another important and perhaps more immediate object which I 
have no doubt it would be for the interest of the city to obtain, is 
the procurement of another Steamer, one of the second class, play- 
ing two streams, much lighter than the present one, but corres- 
ponding in its hose and fittings. I am decidedly of the opinion 
that the time has arrived when the interests of the city imperatively 
demand it, and in this I am supported by the unanimous concur- 
rence of the Board of Engineers. The rates of insurance in Con- 
cord, from the causes enumerated, are much higher than in corres- 
ponding inland cities, and this alone, to say nothing of the large 
pecuniary losses to citizens constantly occurring, should induce us 
to take decisive action in this matter. 

The Board of Engineers have the subject now under considera- 
tion and will, at an early date after the induction to ofl&ce of the 
incoming City Government, present a full and complete plan for a 
new organization in the City Precinct, of a Steam Fire Depart- 
ment exclusively. We have sufficient men in service, and with 
proper means at their command, they will always be found ready 
to answer calls to duty. 

The Chief Engineer is under renewed obligations to the Board 
of Assistant Engineers, the various Fire Companies and the Fire 



50 

Police, for the promptness and energy they have manifested during 
the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

TRUE OSGOOD,

214 
It will be seen by the above that the number of arrests during the past 
year largely exceeds any other year in the history of the Police department 
of this City. This of course can be accounted for or attributed, to the return 
of the different regim(,>nts discharged from military service, whose ranks have 
been filled from time to time by bounty jumpers and substitutes obtained 
from other cities and States. I am happy to say that they have not found 
our city a very pleasant place for their nefarious operations, and very rapidly 
departed to other places where they hoped to meet with a better reception. 



61 

I think I can. safely congratulate your honorable body and our citizens 
generally upon the successful workings of the Police organization, and I be- 
lieve it will not suffer by comparison with the Police of any other city, (ac- 
cording to the nrunber of men on duty,) in the manner in which they have 
performed their duties. The duty of a Police Officer cannot be thoroughly 
understood except by long experience and practice. So far as my duties are 
concerned I can only say that I have endeavored to perform them according 
to the best of my ability, though I have not been able to accomplish all I 
wished, and perhaps have fallen short of the expectancy of some. In con- 
clusion I would return my sincere thanks to your honorabie body and the 
citizens of Concord for the confidence they have reposed in me. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. PICKERING, City Marshal. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY, 



During the past year, two hundred and fifty-Uoo volumes have 
been added to the Public Library. Of these, oae hundred and 
ninety-two were obtained by purchase, and sixty by donation. Of 
the volumes received by donation, Hon. Edward H. Rollins pre- 
sented twenty-three, the Unitarian Publication Society thirty-two, 
Mrs. J. A. Eames four, and Moody Kent, Esq., one. The sum 
expended in the purchase of books has been $273.48. The num- 
ber of subscribers has been six hundred and ninety-eight. 

The Library has suffered somewhat during the past year, from 
inconvenience of location, it having been temporarily removed to 
less advantageous quarters, to accommodate State Officers pending 
the completion of the remodeled State House. This inconvenience 
will be obviated early the coming year. 

We gratefully acknowledge the generous benefaction of the late 
Gardner Parker Lyon, who bequeathed to the City the sum of one 
thousand dollars, the interest of which is to be annually applied to 
the purchase of books for the Public Library. This trust fund has 
been assumed by the city in a recent ordinance, and the Library 
will at once begin to realize the benefits of the considerate bequest, 
which will be a perpetual blessing both to the memory of the giver 
and to the community in which he lived his well-spent life. 



62 



The annual appropriation made from the City Treasury for some 
years past, for the benefit of the Library, ought to be increased. 
The sum of three hundred dollars has not been, for two years past, 
and probably will not be, for some years to come, adequate to sup- 
ply the necessary books. 

Commending this indispensable institution to the liberal favor of 
the City Council and to the confidence and support of our people, 
we close, by referring, for information as to the financial condition 
of the Library, to the report of the Treasurer herewith presented.
