JOSEPH G. TORREY, PRINTER, 32 CONGRESS STREET. 

1864, 



SELECTMEN'S REPOKT. 



Fellow Citizens : — Another financial year having 
ended, it becomes our duty to make our Annual Re- 
port of the receipts and expenditures of the Town, 
under the different departments, for the year ending 
January 31st, 1864. 

SCHOOL BUILDINGS. 

The Committee chosen at last April meeting to fur- 
nish better school accommodations for the children at 
Hyde Park, have attended to their duty so far as to 
purchase an acre of land on Hyde Park Avenue, at a 
cost of $653.40 ; they have also contracted to have a 
large two story building erected on said lot, which 
should have been completed on the first of December, 
but we are sorry to say that it is not yet finished. 



The School House at Commercial Point has not 
been used since the new Adams School House was 
opened ; and the School Committee have given up 
the charge of the house to the Selectmen. We would 
therefore recommend that the Town instruct their Se- 
lectmen to sell the property at auction this year. 

POOR IN THE ALMSHOUSE. 

The number of inmates on the first of February, 
1863, was fourteen. During the year four have been 
admitted, two have been discharged, one ran away, and 
two have died ; leaving thirteen on the first of Febru- 
ary, 1864. 

In addition to the above, many transient persons 
have been provided with food and lodging. 

The establishment remains under the care of the 
same Superintendent who has managed its affairs so 
faitlifully for the past eight years. 

POOH OUT OF THE ALMSHOUSE. 

The expenses of living having largely increased 
during the past year, many families who have but a 
small income have been obliged to call upon our 
Board for aid. 

There are at the present time three persons in the 
Insane Hospital whose expenses are defrayed by the 
Town. 



KOADS AND BRIDGES. 

The Highways are generally in good condition, but 
m the spring of 1863 (owing to the mildness of the 
weather the previous winter) they were very much out 
of repair, and it was absolutely necessary that a large 
amount of work should be done upon them. 

The Bridge at Commercial Point will probably need 
some repair the coming year. 

The Extension Eailroad Company have laid the 
wood work for a railroad from Glover's Corner to Port 
Norfolk, and will probably finish it m the spring. A 
location has also been granted them for a Eailroad 
from Glover's Corner to E-oxbury line. 

In the year 1857 the Legislature of Massachusetts 
passed an Act, giving the County Commissioners of 
Norfolk County the right to purchase the franchise of 
the Neponset Bridge Company, and take toll to reim- 
burse the County for money expended ; also to raise a 
fund for the support of said bridge. 

Last October the Commissioners decided to free the 
bridge, and that it be supported by the Towns of 
Dorchester and Quincy. 

The line has been divided between Dorchester and 
Qumcy on Neponset Bridge, at the centre of the chan- 
nel, throwing the whole drawer and principal part of 
the piers on to the Town of Dorchester. 

The sum raised for its support was S 13, 000. On 
the 8th of January, 1864, the Commissioners paid to 



the Selectmen ^8,000 as the Town of Dorchester's 
part of the fund to support the bridge, which sum 
they heve loaned to the Treasurer of the Town of 
Dorchester, the mcome to be reserved for the support 
of the Bridge. 

POLICE AND WATCH. 

Through the summer season it was necessary to em- 
ploy Police on Sundays to look after unruly persons 
who throng our streets, and to protect the orchards of 
our citizens from theu' depredations. 

During the time of the draft last fall, as riots oc- 
curred in the neighboring cities, our citizens became 
alarmed, and desired a watch, which w^as kept for a 
time, although by so doing M^e exceeded the small 
sum appropriated for that purpose. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

There are two organized Engine Companies in the 
Town, with full ranks — one at Mattapan and one at 
Neponset — who are always ready for duty when need- 
ed ; also four other companies partially organized, 
who keep their machines in order ready for work, and 
with the assj^stance of the citizens do a great amount 
of good. 

We would be thankful to the Great Ruler of events 
that we have met with so few losses by fire the past 
year. 



LIGHTING STREETS. 

There are 78 lamps lighted with gas, and six with 
kerosene. We think this expenditure a judicious one, 
and that the erection of lamp posts should be encour- 
aged. 

CEMETEEIES. 

The condition of the Cemeteries is gradually im- 
proving; the appropriation by the Town, together 
with what is expended by individuals, has given them 
a creditable appearance. 

We would call the attention of the Town to the 
necessity of furnishing additional ground for burial 
purposes, as the lots in the present Cemeteries are 
nearly all taken up. 

STATE AID. 
In accordance with the provisions of the Legisla- 
ture, the undersigned have furnished Aid to families 
of Volunteers dxu'ing the year, ending January 1st, 
1864, to the amount of ^17,810. The number of 
families assisted in the year is 259. 

VOLUNTEERS. 

We are unable to state the number of Recruits 
already obtained, not knowing how many have re- 
enlisted in the old Regiments, but feel confident that 
we shall be able to procure the requisite number with- 
out resorting to a draft. 



8 

Before closing, we would allude to the death of 
one who has been so long and pleasantly associated 
with us in our public duties, and whose uniform 
kindness and courtesy were acknowledged by all. 

By his death the Town have been deprived of the 
valuable services of their Town Clerk ; he, with his 
father (who has also been called away during the past 
year) and grandfather, having held that office and 
performed its duties for more than sixty years. 

The undersigned would tender their grateful ac- 
knowledgments to the citizens of Dorchester for the 
honor conferred upon them during the long term of 
years they have served as Selectmen, and would 
respectfully decline a re-election.

REPOET OF THE EIRE DEPARTMENT. 



To THE Selectmen of Dorchester : 

Gentlemen. — In making the fifteenth annual report of 
the condition of the Fire Department of Dorchester, the 
Chief Engineer has great pleasure in congratulating your 
Board and the citizens of the Town, upon the remarkable 
infrequency of fires and alarms the past year, and also up- 
on the small amount of expense which has been necessary 
to keep the Department in good and efficient condition. 
There have been but five fires in Dorchester the past year, 
all of which are supposed to have been caused by accident 
or by carelessness. 

The members of the two volunteer companies, and per- 
sons in charge of Engines and other apparatus, as well as 
those citizens who have so kindly and acceptably assisted 
the Department at all times when assistance was needed, 
are deserving of the gratitude of the Town, as they have 
the thanks of the Board of Engineers. 

The several Engines and the Hook and Ladder Carriage 
are in good condition for service, well taken care of, and 
are always ready for use. 

Engine House No. 4 has been newly shingled the past 
year, at an expense of about eighty-four dollars, and Engine 
No. 4 has been supplied with one hundred feet of new lead- 
ing hose, at a cost of one hundred and twenty-five dollars. 

Engine House No. Two (2) should be newly painted, 
and Engine House No. Six (6) newly shingled the coming 
season. With the two last named houses excepted, the En- 
gine Houses are in good repair. 

The amount of expenditures under the direction of the 
6 



42 

Board of Engineers, for necessary repairs and the mainte- 
nance of the Department the past year, has been $484.61). 
Total amount of expenditures on account of Fire Depart- 
ment, $1,632.11. 

The Department is organized as follows, viz : 
SYLVESTER H. HEBARD, Chief Engineer. 

ALFRED CLAPP, \ 

NATHANIEL WITHINGTON,/ 

EDMUND C. FRUEAN, /Assistant Engineers. 

HENRY FOBES, \ 

GEORGE G. DENNISON, ^ 

Engine No. 1, Fountain, is under the charge of six per- 
sons, Charles F. Hall, being Steward, 

Engine No. 2, Protector, is under the charge of six per- 
sons, Sargent Fruean being Steward. 

Engine No, 3, Torrent, is under the charge of six per- 
sons, John Heurtson being Steward. 

Engine No. 4, Alert, is under the care of a Volunteer 
Company, (six persons of whom are paid,) Nelson Brown 
being Steward. 

Engine No. 5, Independence, is under the care of a Vol- 
unteer Company, (six persons of whom are paid,) N. W. 
Holt being Steward. 

Engine No. 6, Tiger, is under the charge of six persons, 
Theodore Hersey being Steward, 

Mattapan Hook and Ladder Carriage is under the charge 
of two persons, Samuel Bridget being Steward. 

A Table of the Fires from February 1, 1863, to February

Respectfully submitted, 
. SYLVESTER H. HEBARD, Chief Engineer.
