SELECTMEN'S EEPORT. 



< ^ * ^ » 



TO THE CITIZENS OF DOECHESTER: 

We submit to you the following annual report, 
with, the amount of money received from all sources, 
and the different purposes for which we have drawn 
orders upon the Treasurer, during the fiscal year, end- 
ing January 31st, 1862. 

SCHOOLS. 

The system of Public Schools is a blessing which 
has descended to us from our ancestors, and for which 
we owe them a debt of gratitude, providing, as it does 
for each and every child of every rank and condition 
in life, that degree of education which is necessary to 
prepare them for the ordinary and practical duties of 
life, and for taking part in the affairs of the govern- 
ment. Its benefits are so generally appreciated by 
our citizens, that they are easily reconciled to any 
reasonable expense in this department. 

Care, however, should be taken to prevent waste or 
extravagance, and to economise in every way where it 
can be done without detriment to the schools. 

A Committee chosen for the purpose by the Town 
have purchased an eligible lot of land containing 
35,970 feet, and bounded on three sides by streets, for 
the sum of 2,178 /oo dollars, and have caused a noble 
building with all the modern improvements to be 
erected thereon for the use of the Adams School. — 
There has been paid towards its erection 13,902 Iqq 
dollars, and there still remains due about 900 dollars. 



which cannot be paid at present in consequence of 
trustee writs being served upon the town. 

A lot of land was purchased containing one acre, 
situated on Codman street, near Pope's corner, for 
762 100 dollars, and the building formerly occupied by 
the Adams school was moved on to said land, and re- 
paired at an expense of 2,090 i^o^o dollars. 

The lot of land on which the Adams school house 
formerly stood, containing one fourth of an acre, was 
sold for 500 dollars. 

POOR IN THE ALMS-HOUSE. 

The expenditures in this department deducting the 
receipts, are 2,072 loo dollars, and if we deduct the 
amount of labor done by men and horses upon the 
highways, and the repairs of bridges, and building 
fences upon the sides of the highways, the actual cost 
of supporting this department has been 1,800 ^qq dol- 
lars. 

The present state of our nation, the depression in 
business, and the difficulty of obtaining the necessary 
supplies of food and clothing, are matters which do 
not cause any great inconvenience or trouble to the 
Inmates of this institution, they having been relieved 
from those anxieties by those who have anticipated 
their temporal wants and provided for them a comfort- 
able home. Peligious meetings have been held at 
this institution every Sabbath, conducted by persons 
who have taken a deep interest in the spiritual wel- 
fare of its inmates. 

POOR OUT OF THE ALMS-HOUSE. 

The expenditures in this department, deducting 
what is received from other towns, and interest from 
fund, makes the actual cost to the town for the past 
year, 1,262 i^o* dollars. 



The persons who have applied for aid during the 
year, have not been as numerous as might reasonably 
have been expected considering the number who have 
no lucrative employment. Many families have a father 
or brother in the army and have received money from 
the " Soldiers' Fund," and are now receiving help 
from the fund raised for the "Aid of the families of 
Volunteers," who would have been obliged, were 
it not for this aid, to have applied for assistance from 
the town. y 

HIGHWAYS. 

The roads were divided into three districts, and as- 
signed to the several members of the Board as Sur- 
veyors, and have been repaired at an expense of 
8,083 i^o dollars. 

The Street from Hyde Park to West Roxbury, laid 
out by the' County Commissioners 50 feet in width, 
has been built according to the directions of said Com- 
missioners, so that the travelled path is 25 feet wide, 
at a cost of 2,503 /Jo dollars, including what was paid 
the previous year. 

The street from Port Norfolk to Commercial street 
was finished so far as the contract for building and 
fencing was concerned, for 3,500 dollars. We have 
paid for land damages and gravel 536 /Jo dollars, and 
have received from individuals who agreed to indem- 
nify the town from all expenses for land damages, the 
sum of 44 1 dollars. 

Adams street has been widened by the County 
Commissioners by taking land from the estate former- 
ly owned by the late John Fox, and another widen- 
ing between Field's comer and a point near the junc- 
tion of Neponset avenue and said street, the Coun- 
ty paying the land damages with the exception of 
five hundred dollars paid by the town. 

We have also caused a further widening of Adams 
street, and also at the corner of Adams and Minot 



streets, by taking land of Daniel Harwood, paying him 
for land and removing his fence, 275 dollars. 

River street has been v^idened and repaired near 
Kenney's bridge, and near the crossing of the B, & N. 
Y. C. Railroad the past season, at an expense of 
787i^o dollars. 

LIGHTING STREETS. 

IM^ny of the inhabitants have availed themselves of 
the privilege of putting up lamp posts and lamps at 
their own expense, under the direction of the Select- 
men ; the tovs^n paying for the lighting. The town 
is now paying for lighting 63 lamps with gas at the 
rate of 20 dollars each per year, and for lighting three 
lamps with Kerosene at 16 dollars per year for each 
lamp. 

GRAVEL LAND. 

We have purchased an acre of land on Codman 
street adjoining the land purchased for the school 
house lot, for 762 loo dollars. 

As most of the gravel at the gravel pit on Adams 
street suitable for repairing roads was exhausted, we 
thought it for the interest of the town to purchase it, 
there being a large quantity of excellent gravel upon 
the land. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

Fires and alarms of fire have not been so frequent 
the past year as in preceding ones. We do not know 
how to account for the fact except that those persons 
who were the instruments in causing so much distress 
and loss of property to the community, have had their 
attention directed to some useful occupation. 



5 
CLAIM FOR DAMAGES. 

The case of Isaiah P. White of Quincy, to recover 
10,000 dollars damages of the town for injuries sus- 
tained by him in 1857, in consequence of alleged de- 
fect in the bridge on Commercial street, was tried 
the third time at the Superior Court last October, the 
jury, (after a brief absence,) returned a verdict for the 
town. — At the former irials the sympathies of some 
of the jury were so strong for the afflicted man as to 
overpower their better judgment, consequently they 
could not agree. — We feel relieved that we can re- 
port the case settled, as it has been a source of great 
anxiety to us, and considerable expense to the town. 

AID FOR VOLUNTEER SOLDIERS AND 
THEIR FAMILIES. 

As our citizens have taken a deep interest in the 
support of our national government, it would no 
doubt be interesting to them to know what has been 
done by the town for the benefit of our own soldiers 
and their families. We have no means of ascertain- 
ing the large amount of private benefactions in the 
town, but will make a few statements from the town 
records, not giving an exact copy of the votes, they 
being too lengthy for our purpose. 

Pursuant to a call posted throughout the town, the 
citizens met at the town hall, April 20, 1861, to take 
into consideration the condition of the country, and 
" to provide everything necessary for the war and for 
those who enlist." 

The following Resolutions were adopted. 

Resolved — That in this crisis of our national affairs, 
prompt to the call of duty, uniting as with one heart in our 
country's cause, we rally in defence of that flag, beneath 
whose folds a patriot people has always found protection, 



and which has ever proved the truest symbol of representa- 
tive government upon earth. 

Resolved — That at this hour when amidst the anarchy 
of lawless resistance, traitor hands are striving to subvert 
that Union which the fathers formed, we solemnly pledge to 
the government of the Federal Union an unfaltering devo- 
tion, confident that a free people will triumph over secret 
and open foes ; will vindicate the sovereignty of their gov- 
ernment, and maintain the honor of their flag. 

Resolved — That as we call to mind the proud achieve- 
ments of the first and second warspf independence, and the 
memory of those whose valor acquired this sacred inherit- 
ance of the noblest renown, obedient to the word of command 
we will co-operate to the utmost with our Federal, State and 
Municipal authorities, and with our Military and Naval or- 
ganizations in the vigorous prosecution of the war, and the 
maintenance of the liberties of the people. 

Resolved — That the drum beat which now calls the 
soldier to the post of duty, reminds us of our imperious pub- 
lic and private obligations to aid, encourage and protect those 
who go forth from among us in defence of our rights and 
liberties ; and that a Committee be forthwith chosen to ar- 
range for the organization, equipment and discipline of our 
citizen soldiers, and to provide the requisite means in aid of 
the volunteers and their families; to the end that in every 
vicissitude the men of Dorchester, may prove themselves in- 
flexible in their eflbrts to uphold the arm of the government, 
and worthy defenders of its flag. 

Resolved — That the Selectmen be requested to take 
such further action in furtherance of these purposes, either 
by calling a Town Meeting or otherwise, as the public ex- 
igency may demand. 

It was then voted — That a subscription paper be at 
once opened, the funds to be used for the purposes 
specified in the fourth resolution. 

It was also voted — That Ebenezer Eaton, E. H. E,. 
Ruggles, Lewis F. Pierce, Moses G. Cobb, E. P. 
McElroy and Nathan Carruth, be a Committee on Fi- 
nance, under whose direction the funds raised shall be 
expended. 

Nathan Carruth was chosen Treasurer of said 
fund. 

Eight thousand one hundred and eighty-eight dol- 



lars were subscribed by the citizens, and an instal- 
ment of fifty per cent., amounting to four thousand 
and ninety-four dollars was paid to the Treasurer. 
The town having subsequently voted additional pay 
to the volunteers from this town, the Committee con- 
cluded a further instalment would not be needed. 

At a Town Meeting held on the sixth day of May, 
1861, it was voted to pay the volunteers from this 
town who are married, the sum of twenty dollars per 
month, and those who are unmarried the sum of fif- 
teen dollars per month, for the term of three months, 
while engaged in active service, and one dollar per 
day to each member of the two companies recruited 
in the town for such past time as they had been 
actively drilling, and for the two succeeding weeks, 
if they should drill that time before being accepted, 
and going into active service. 

A committee of one from each school district was 
appointed to regulate the disbursement of the money, 
as aforesaid : 

Cyrus Brewer, Oliver Hall, James H. Upham, 
Marshall P. Wilder, Frank L. Tileston, John A. 
Haven and Charles Hunt, committee chosen. 

The above committee paid 2,438 loo dollars to 
the men for drilling, and 6,955 dollars extra pay to 
the volunteers for three months, the Legislature hav- 
ing legalized such payments. 

In accordance with an Act entitled "An Act in 
aid of the Volunteers and for other purposes," passed 
May 23, 1861, we are now assisting 102 families, 
paying them SI 8 dollars per month. The money so 
expended, or a portion of it, is to be reimbursed by 
the State at some future day.

of Engineers, for the support of the Fire Department. 

The Department is organized as follows : —

Under the charge of the Board of Engineers, belonging

50 

The Engine house at Mattapan, occupied by Alert, No. 
4, has been painted. 

There being no bell in the immediate vicinity, and the 
bell on the engine house being too small, the engineers upon 
the petition of inhabitants in the neighborhood, substituted 
a steel bell at a cost of $191 75. The old bell is placed 
upon Protector Engine House. 

There have been twenty-four fires and alarms the past 
year, nineteen of which were in this town. 

The amount expended under the direction of the Board 
of Engineers, for repairs, &c. has been $967 42. 

Total expenditures on account of the Fire Department

A Table of the Fires and Alarms, from February 1, 
1861, to February 1, 1862, is annexed. 
Respectfully, Yours, 
SYLVESTER H. HEBARD, Chief Engineer.
