The number of applications for aid was 209 ; number of per- 
sons assisted 162 ; deaths 15, males 10, females 5. 

It is now well understood by most of those applying for aid 
and support from the city treasur3^ that a clear case of necessity 
must be shown to exist, before assistance can be obtained, con- 
sequently many who otherwise would not scruple to ask for help, 
" much or little, as you please sir," are made to hesitate and 
cast about for the means of self support, either by greater dili- 
gence in their calling, or a wiser economy, and a better husband- 
ry of their own resources. 

Idleness, intemperance, and a reckless extravagance, has been 
and is to-day, the cause of three-fourths of all the want and pov- 
erty existing in the community ; and so long as this class can 
have their wants supplied, in health, as well as in sickness, by 
our charitable societies, and from the city or county treasury, 
without a " why or wherefore," just so long, and in just that 
proportion, I hold we are fostering the evil we seek to abate. 

There are, however, applicants for aid who do not belong to 
this class of beneficiaries, and for whose wants it is a pleasure 
to provide. Hence the difficulty of complying in all cases, with 
the charitable intention of the law of kindness, and so to adjust 
the " scale of benevolence," as to give to each his due proportion 
is often found a difficult task. 

Kespectfully submitted, 

C. F. STEWART, 

Overseer of the Poor for the above Wards,

REPORT 



TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC LIBMEY. 



"We are glad to report a growing interest in our Public Library 
and an evident inoi-ease of usefulness. With a steady growth 
of the institution and an increasing circulation of books, there 
is a manifest advance in general taste and culture, shown in 
more frequent calls for books of a more substantial and elevating 
character. In obedience to such a tendency we have thought it 
proper to supply a greater per centage of standard works at a 
corresponding expense ; which will account for a seeming dis- 
proportion between the amount of outlay for books and the 
number of volumes purchased. 

To the usual receipts by city appropriation and interest of the 
*'Lyon legacy" there w^as added, the past year, the interest from 
the " Pierce legacy," as will be seen by the Treasurer's report. 
And while we cannot but anticipate a constant extension of the 
circulation and usefulness of the Library, in order to meet the 
demands of growth in population and cultivation, w^ trust it 
will be deemed best to continue in the full amount of the' appro- 
priation heretofore voted by the city authorities. And we can- 
not forbear to suggest a desire that the wise and generous be^ 
quests of our deceased townsmen, Mr. Lyon and Gen. Pierce, 
may be followed by other citizens of ample means, till our 
Library becomes permanently endowed in a manner to make it 
one of the solid institutions of our city. Surely, there are few 
objects that can enlist the interest and employ the means of real 
beneficence with promise of more direct results in practical cul- 
ture and social elevation. 

The number of card sissued during the year by the Librarian is 
618. 



56 

Circulation of books for year amounts to 30,282. 

Number of volumes in the Library- at last report, 5,5G8 

Number of volumes added by purchase, 179 

Number of volumes added by donation, 30 



Number of volumes at the end of the Library year, 5,777 

Of the donations, twenty volumes were from the New Church 
Conference Publishing House, consisting principally of the 
Theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. One volume, 
" Canoe Voyage of Rob Roy," presented by S. C. Eastman, 
Esq. One volume, " Coast Guide," presented by E. C Eastman, 
Esq. Two volumes. Poems, presented by the author, Robert B. 
Caverly, Esq. Four volumes, Public Documents, presented by 
Hon. J. W. Patterson. Two volumes. Public Documents, pre- 
sented by Hon. A. H. Cragin. 

An exhibition of the financial condition of the Library is made 
in the accompanying report of .the Treasurer.

EEPORT 



CITY SOLICITOR. 



During the last year two suits against the city have 
been tried. The first was the claim of Dyer H. Fay, for com- 
pensation for injuries received by him, and damage done to his 
wagon, the result of an accident occurring July 16, 1870, upon 
the highway between the Lower Bridge and Glover's Hill. The 
claim was referred to the determination of John Kimball, Geo. W. 
Whittredge and Jeremiah S. Noyes, Esquires, who awarded Mr. 
Fay the sum of one hundred dollars. 

The second was the suit of Margaret Murphy against the city, 
which was tried by a jury at the October Term of the court 
She claimed damages for a broken thigh, and other injuries re- 
ceived, by falling on the crossing at the junction of Main and 
Warren streets, on the twenty-fourth day of March, 1870. The 
verdict was for the city. 

Two suits in which the city is a party remain upon the dockets 
of the Court, viz. Palmer v. Concord, and Pickering v. Concord. 
In the latter case Mr. Pickering's principal claim is for the sum 
of $250 ; which he alleges should be paid him for the ^'use of 
horse and carriage from April 1868 to March 1870 to do city 
business as City Marshal." The whole matter in controversy 
has been referred and will soon be adjusted.

OF THE 

POLICE JUSTICE 



To His Honor the 3Iayor and the Board of Aldermen of the 
City of Concord : 

The Police Justice herewith submits the Nineteenth Annual 
Report. 

There have been catered in the Police Court during the financial 
year enduig with this date, thirty-three civil actions. 

There have been during said year one hundred and twenty- 
eight arraignments before the Police Justice of persons charged 
with the commission of criminal offences. 

A description of those prosecutions in which the City Mar- 
shal participated, appears in his report of this date. 

The Police Justice charges himself as follows : 

Amount of costs received in said criminal prose- 
cutions $408 12 

Amount of fines received : 799 34 

Amount of costs received in civil actions 26 12 

$1,233 5 8

ness fees $288 28 

Paid for blanks and other expenses 18 24 

Paid to City Treasurer.... .....927 06 

$1,233 58 

While the amount of costs received during the year is less 
than in some former instances, (owing to the more limited num- 
ber of criminal prosecutions,) the amount of fines received for 
the city exceeds that of any previous year.

REP R T 



OF THE 



COMMITTEE ON SEWERAGE 



To the City Council of the City of Concord: 

The Committee on Sewerage submit the following report : 

Your Committee have caused to be constructed sewers from 
and to the following points : From a point on Main st., oppo- 
site Chapel St., southerly to a cesspool opposite the residence of 
Ivory Hall; also from a point on Warren st., nearly opposite 
Tremont st., westerly to Merrimack st. ; also from the junction 
of Merrimack and Warren sts., southerly to Orchard st. This 
together with additional cesspools at various points upon the line 
of sewers heretofore constructed, constitutes the total of sewer- 
age entered upon the past year. 
^ It will be observed that assessments for the construction of 
sewers upon Main and Washington sts., have not been ordered. 
It has seemed by 3^our committee proper to defer their collection 
until a connection is made at the junction of Main and Chapel 
sts., and the sewer is otherwise made conformable to the origi- 
nal plan. 



62 

The sewer commencing at the junction of Warren and Fremont 
sts., and from Warren down Merrimack st., was completed late 
the past season, and the assessment for its construction will un" 
doubtedly be made early the coming season. 

The wisdom of the system of constructing sewers is every 
day becoming more apparent, not only in the increased comfort 
and convenience to our citizens, but largely in its benefits to the 
streets along which the}" are constructed. 

The immediate construction of our sewers has been placed un- 
der the superintendence of Lyman R. Fellows, Esq., a gentle- 
man thoroughly competent to perform the duties with which he 

has been entrusted.
