The financial affairs of the farm appear to have been well 
managed the past year. The account shows a balance to the 
credit of the farm of two hundred eighty-four dollars and eight 
cents, after deducting the amount of the Overseer's salary. This 
includes the sum due for stone quarried the past year. 

The building at the farm used as a lock-up for criminals sen- 
tenced to the House of Correction, was burned November 3d, 
together with several plows, cultivator, harrow, &c, stored in 
part of the building. It will probably be necessary for the city 



38 



to ereot another building the ensuing year for the occupancy of 
such as may be sent to the House of Correction, and the oommit- 
tee would suggest the utility of building with stone which can be 
very easily obtained on the farm. 

The overseer of the farm for the past eight years, resigned In 
November and Mr, and Mrs. Partridge were engaged for Mi<' re- 
mainder of the year. They appear to be discharging the duties 
of Overseer and Matron very successfully.

First fire, under the new ordinance. Steamers both out prompt- 
ly, but some little delay occurred in obtaining water, owing to ill 
regulation of the School street water-gates. Damage to various 
parties $500 to $800, mostly covered by insurance. 

November 9th. The house of H. G. Kayes, corner of School 
and Rumford streets took fire during the evening, from a defect 
in the chimney, but was extinguished without a general alarm 
and with but little damage. 

November 30th. Fire took from defect in chimney, at the res- 
idence of David F. Kimball, on Spring Street ; the house being 
owned and formerly occupied by Elisha Morrill. Both steamers 
were prompt in response to the alarm, and a line of hose was 
laid, and in readiness, with most commendable dispatch. The 
fire was extinguished, however, by citizens and firemen. Dam- 
age inconsiderable, say $100 to $200. 

November, 24th. Alarm given by city police and watch at 1 
o'clock, in the morning, from fire at Low's Rumford Block. The 
flames had made very considerable headway when discovered, 
but both the steamers were out, and stationed, in ten minutes 
after the watchman's cry ; the Hydrant and Hose Companies 
soon followed. The fire was soon under control, although 
from the nature of its locality, (in the walls and attic,) it was 
almost inaccessible to streams of water, and its final extinguish- 
ment was more protracted. Messrs. Churchill, Kilburn & Co., 



46 

dry goods dealers, were compelled to remove their stock, badly 
damaged, mostly from water. Messrs. Stewart, clothing dealers, 
kept their goods in store, with but little loss. The Independent 
Press Association, newspaper, were considerably damaged, both 
by fire and water. The fire originated on their premises. Other 
occupants were slightly damaged. Total loss estimated at 
$10,000 to $12,000, fully insured. Supposed, accidental. This 
fire fully demonstrated the resources and working force of the 
newly organized Department in the Precinct. No less than six 
large streams of water were here played, or held in reserve for 
emergency. These could have been increased four more, had it 
been desirable, but the great difficulty on the part of the Engi- 
neers was, to hold in check those already in position. 

During the past year, in conjunction with my colleagues of 
the Board of Engineers, I have labored earnestly for a re-organ- 
ization of this Department, and a reduction of its working force, 
and consequent decrease in its expenditures. This, has at last, 
been accomplished, and to-day, the citizens of the Precinct rely 
upon the steamers and hydrants alone. That this protection 
is amply sufficient for any ordinary exigency I do not doubt, but 
we must not forget that occasions arise when all human means 
are swept away by the irresistible tide of fire. This is shown in 
the yearly history of every city of the Union, and evidence con- 
stantly occurring, demonstrates the fact that the most ample 
force and the most perfect apparatus of modern invention, at 
times, are but naught in contest with the devouring element. 

The pay-rolls for the year ending February 1, 1868, excluding 

all incidental and collateral charges of every kind, and simply 

embracing pay for service, show a great difference between our 

expenditures under the old ordinance, based upon the payment 

of men per hour, and the new one, where the compensation is 

fixed per annum. They foot up : 

From Feb. 1 to August 1, Six months under old ordinance, $2,762.39 
" Aug. 1 to Nov. 1, Three •« •• " " 1,423.50 

" Nov. 1 to Feb. 1, Three " " new ordinance, 779.25 

Total pay-rolls per year, - - - - $4,965.14 

The number of men employed under the old ordinance was 
353, and their pay was indefinite, being regulated principally by 



47 

the duration of hourly service, which depended entirely upon 
the frequency of fires and alarms and their time of continu- 
ance. The slightest alarm, calling out the Department, cost the 
city at least one hundred dollars, and this was not of uncom- 
mon occurrence. The number of men under the new ordinance 
is 194, with yearly pay, not affected by length of service, and the 
sum of 8779.25, given in the above table, represents a full quar- 
ter's compensation, which cannot be increased or diminished by 
any contingency. 

Good order, promptitude and the best discipline pervade every 
branch of the Department ; incendiarism is less rife, and running 
expenses are reduced nearly one-half. Such are the results of 
this change. 

The hand companies have left the service, sundering the 
pleasant associations and ties cemented by an association of 
many years duration, with no expression of ill-feeling, but in 
a manner reflecting the highest credit upon themselves, person- 
ally, and upon their organizations. These companies have, in 
the past, rendered efficient service, and acquired a reputation 
which will endure far in the future, but have been compelled to 
give way to the march of improvement in materiel for extin- 
guishment of fires. 

The establishment of a" village" telegraphic fire alarm has 
been brought, of late, incidentally to the attention of the com- 
munity, but from want of full and proper information as to this 
particular plan, and from the fact that the proprietors of the 
patent intend soon to exhibit its practical workings here, I will 
merely premise that the adoption of a fire alarm would be of 
great advantage to our city, so extended in its limits, and leave 
the matter for your future consideration, without any definite 
recommendation. 

I should be remiss in duty did I not call your attention to the 
pressing need of suitable buildings for the fire apparatus of the 
Precinct. I would not urge the matter at length, here, as the sub- 
ject has been so thoroughly agitated during the past year and 
the necessity for immediate action made so apparent, that almost 
every citizen is aware of its importance, and public sentiment 
strongly favors the projected movement. 

In conclusion, I take pleasure in tendering to my colleagues 



48 

of the Board of Engineers, and to the entire Department, my 
grateful acknowledgments for their courtesy and aid, and for 
their promptitude in the execution of my orders and plans. The 
Department is in the hands of competent men, emulous in hon- 
orable rivalry, a majority of its members property holders, and 
every branch of its service well equipped and supplied.

kept as a permanent fund, and the annual interest alone appro- 
priated to its care and improvement. During the year nothing 
has been received from the sale of lots.

$669.39 

The whole amount received from the sale of lots to date of last 

report, (Jan. 26, 1867) was $6,228.49 

Amount received from Jan. 26, 1867, to Feb. 1, 1868 1,004.88 

Total receipts from sale of lots $7,233.37 

This amount (less the sum of 157.11, being an unexpended 
portion of the amount accruing during the year for the improve- 
ment and care of the cemetery, now in the hands of the City 
Treasurer and subject to our order,) has been disbursed since the 
cemetery was opened ; one-half of which has been applied to- 
wards the principal and interest of the debt incurred in the pur- 
chase of the land, and the other expended in improving the 
grounds and for general superintendence. The amount now due 
on the notes given by the City is 3,697.00 with interest paid to 
December 1, 1867. Both principal and interest are gradually 
decreasing and their final extinguishment is not far distant. 

The improvements of the past season have been confined most- 
ly to the completion of the park, the opening of new avenues 
and paths and the grading of others, and we trust are of a per- 



54 

manent character. Good order and neatness have prevailed 
throughout the entire premises, and the cemetery has become a 
place of popular but quiet resort of citizens and strangers, who, 
in increased numbers, visit this hallowed spot, so beautiful by 
nature, but made more attractive by the enduring monuments 
which affection has reared to the memory of the sacred dead who 
rest within its confines.

MARRIAGE AND MORTUARY STATISTICS. 



Record of Marriages. 

The number of marriage certificates issued from January 1 , 
1867 to January 1, 1868, was 153 against 164 the year before. 

The number of males who resided in Concord was 116; 
females, 89. 

The youngest male was 19 ; the youngest female 16 years 
old. The oldest male was 60 ; the oldest female 48 years old. 
The average age of males 27.69 years ; of females 24.46 years. 

The certificates were issued as follows, by months : January, 6, 
February, 7 ; March, 10 ; April, 12 ; May, 13 ; June, 13 ; July, 
July, 14 ; August, 11 ; September, 15 ; October, 24 ; November, 
16 ; December, 12. It will be seen that much the largest num- 
ber of marriages took place in October ; double the number of 
six other months of the year. It will also be seen that the 
average age of the parties married is older than is commonly 
supposed, and that many men go out of the city for their wives.
