FOURTEENTH 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 
Fourteenth Annual Report : 

Appraised value farm and buildings 1866, $8,000 00 

Appraised value of personal property in 1866, 4,256 85 

Total, Sl2,256 85 

Appraised value of farm and buildings, 1867, $9,000 00 
Appraised value of personal property, 1867, 3,628 45 



Total of 1867, $12,628 45 

Total of 1866, 12,256 85 

Increase in valuation past year, $371 60 

Number of paupers at the Farm Feb. 1, 1867, 16 

Whole number for the year, 44 

Average number for the year, 15 

Number lodged one night or more, 49 

Died, 1 

Boarding criminals, number of days, 329 
Number of criminals sentenced House of Correction, 9 

Your Committee are unanimous in the opinion that the Farm 
is well managed; and the prudent management of the household 
affairs reflects much credit on the Superintendent and Matron, Mr. 
and Mrs. Gilman. Owing to the lighter hay crop last season than 
usual the stock has been reduced some on the Farm which makes 



87 

the personal property somewhat lower than last year, but the rise 
in value on real estate and the stone quarries in this vicinity more 
than balances the deficit. For this reason your Committee have 
seen fit to raise the valuation of the Farm. During the year past 
the Superintendent has made several improvements on the build- 
ings painting them, &c., which he has paid for ofi" the Farm. 
He has also laid out on the highway the sum of $92,25 for which 
he has also paid from the Farm and It should stand to his credit. 
Your Committee do not feel to close their report without speaking, 
of the stone quarries on the Farm. They should be looked after 
more strictly than they have been. There has been much lawless 
trespassing of late in getting stone ofiP the Farm which should be 
stopped until the parties enter into a written agreement with the 
city authorities to get stone from the various quarries on the Farm. 
The city gets but V(^f'y little for the stone takeii from the quarries. 
They should have as much as other people have in this vicinity for 
the same quality of stone. As a whole, every thing else on the 
premises looks well for the city. 

Kespectfully submitted, 

J. V. ALDRICH, )

CHIEP ENGINEER'S REPORT, 



To His Honor the Ilayor and the Board of Aldermen : 

The Eire Department have been called out during the year end- 
ing Feb. 1, 1867, as follows : 

Feb. 16, 1866. At Athenian Building, Main street. Loss, 
$9,000.00. Insured about $7,000.00. Caught from heating 
through cooking range.

July 13. Fire at foundry of Ford & Kimball. Work shop of 
Benj. F. Duncklee & Co. Dwelling house of B. A. Kimball, Esq. 
Tenement house of F. Low & Co. Loss, $26,000.00. Insured, 
$15,000.00. 

Aug. 15. File at house of Dr. Little, at Fisherville. Loss, 
$2,200. Insured, $1,200. 

Oct. 29. Fire at wood and lumber shed of H. H. & J. S. Brown, 
Fisherville. Loss, $500.00. 

Nov. 5. Fire at wood shed and oil house of H. H. & J. S. 
Brown, Fisherville. Loss, $500.00. 

Nov. 10. Fire at Downing & Sons' blacksmith shops. Des- 
troyed three dwelling-houses adjoining. Loss, $15,000.00. In- 
sured, $10,500.00. 

Nov. 12. Fire at Picker room of Penacook mills, owned by 

Nov. 14. Fire at Downing k Sons. Loss, $900.00. Insured, 
$600,00. 
H. H. & J. S. Brown. 

Nov. 29. Fire at Penacook mills, Fisherville, Loss, $40,000. 
Fully insured. 

Jan. 23, 1867. Fire at the Widow Merrill house, Main street. 
Damage, $2,500.00. Insured, $1,815.00. 

There has been purchased during the past year one second-class 
steam fire engine, a hose carriage, and nine hundred and fifty feet 



43 

of engine hose, wliicli are now temporarily located at the engine 
house on Warren street. 

There has been one reservoir built during the past year on 
South street. 

I would again call the attention of the City Council to the fact 
that we are still very deficient in water, and repeat what I said in 
my last annual Report in relation to that matter. 

The engine house, &c., on Warren street is entirely unfit for the 
purposes for which it is used, and a new one is imperatively 
demanded, suitable for the accommodation of the steamers. Con- 
siderable feeling has been and still is manifest by our citizens as 
to a suitable location. Any central location where there is room 
enough, is all that is desired, as we can reach any part of the main 
village while the engines are being heated up, about from seven to 
ten minutes being necessary for that purpose. It would certainly 
be desirable to have the Fire Department by itself, if it can be 
without incurring any considerable additional expense. 

There has been added to the Department an Eagine company 
(Steamer Kearsarge) of twelve men, and a Hydrant and Hose 
company of ten men, composed of men, at the Northern Railroad 
shops, to use the force pump in that locality, and to act in union 
with Hydrant and Hose No. 1. 

Early in May of last year, the Committee of the Fire Depart- 
ment of the City Council, and myself, A. B. Holt and John M. 
Hill, of the Board of Engineers, were instructed to examine into 
the situation and wants of the Fire Department of the main village. 
After due consideration, a report was made, which is now on file 
in the office of the City Clerk. Thcs recommendations of the Com- 
mittee since that report have been adopted in part, two new com- 
panies having been formed, but no reduction in any branch of the 
force has been made. 

Having bee>). connected with the Concord Fire Department for 
a period of thirty-six years, and with the Board of Engineers nearly 
the whole time since its organization, I think it is time that I 
should retire, and am therefore not a candidate for re-appointment 
to the position which I now hold. 

I am under renewed obligation to the Board of Engineers for 
their efficient aid during the past year, and to the members of the 
several Fire Companies for the promptness with which they have 



44 

performed their respective duties, sometimes under very trying 
circumstances. And I would here say to all, both firemen and 
citizens, that if I have done anything as Engineer that may have 
seemed harsh or unkind, I most sincerely regret it, and trust it 
will be put down as an error of judgment rather than a want of 
courtesy on my part. In taking leave of the Department in an 
official capacity, I beg to assure you that I shall look back with 
pleasure to the many pleasant and social meetings which we have 
had together, and shall still feel a deep interest in the efficiency of 
that Department with which I have been connected for the greater 
portion of my life, and that whatever I may be able to do here- 
after for its efficiency will be done most cheerfully. 

Respectfully submitted, 

TRUE OSGOOD, Chief Engineer.

the past year :

Total Receipts from sale of lots, $6,228,49 

•This amount has been expended partly in payments made from 
time to time upon the notes given for the cemetery grounds and 
partly for their laying out and improvement, with the exception of 
one hundred and two dollars and seventy-three cents, of which sum 
sixty dollars is now in the hands of the Superintendent of the 
Cemetery and the balance is in the city treasury, subject to the 
draft of the Committee. 

The amount now due on notes given by the city for the purchase 
of the Cemetery, is thirty-nine hundred and sixty-five dollars, 
(3.965). As one-half of the receipts from the sale of lots is an- 
nually appropriated to the payment of the interest and principal of 
this debt, it is hoped that its entire liquidation may be reached at 
a day not far distant. 

During the past year, important improvements have been made 
by the Committee upon the paths and grounds of the Cemetery. 
Lots, to a considerable number, have also been graded, enclosed 
and embellished by their proprietors.

Second Annual Report of the West Concord Cemetery 
Committee. 



To the City Council of the City of Concord : 

Your Committee respectfully submit the following Report of the 
receipts and expenditures of said Committee for the year ending 
January 31, 1867.

Your Committee are of opinion that further improvements should 
be made during the coming season, if we would save those already 
made, which cannot be done with the limited means now in their 
possession. They also deem it essential that the citizens in that 
portion of the city should manifest more interest in regard to this 
matter than they have hitherto done, in order to secure the com- 
pletion of the work.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



To the City Council of the City of Concord : 

The undersigned Trustees of the Public Library of the City of 
Concord, have the satisfaction of reporting the continued prosperity 
of the institution. Every year adds to the favorable estimation in 
which it is held by the community. But its capacity for good is 
much crippled by its lack of financial means. It has not the money 
wherewith to place upon its shelves many volumes, yearly, that 
ought to be found there. We must again urge, as it has been re- 
peatedly urged in former reports, that the appropriation for the City 
Library be increased. 

During the past year, there have been added to the Library one 
hundred and seventy-four volumes by purchase, and thirty-tiuo by 
donation. The names of the donors and the number of volumes 
contributed by each, are as follows : Hon. George Gr. Fogg, 7 ;
