It will be noticed that the School Expenses, as paid by the 
Treasurer, are somewhat less than usual, and considerably less 
than the actual expense incurred ; this circumstance will be ac- 
counted for, by the facts that there are several bills for teaching, 
v.-hich have been allowed, but not jjresented for payment, and that 
there has been but $13 00 paid to the School Committee, and 
nothing for their dinners, the past year, while these two last men- 
tioned items amounted to $158 II, in the year before.

have expended $49 98 more than the appropriation by the town; 
besides, they are indebted to the "Overseers of the Poor" for hay, 
board, &.C. 8179 72, making the excess of expenditure $229 7U 
over the appropriation. They, however, have on hand a cart and 
tools, which were purchased in 1839, and cost 121 OS, and now 
valued at 100 00. And also a cart, tools, &c. purchased in 1840, 
and cost 123 60; making 223 60 ; which deducted from the excess 
above, will leave but 6 10. They expended in 1839, less than the 
appropriation, 8123 61.

Note. — The incidental town expenses, have exceeded the amount 
raised for such purposes, 291 36, in consequence of widening Cot- 
tage street, which cost 134 26; repairs in Mill street, cost 50 29 ; 
north burying ground fence 69 71; and attorneys' fees for services 
in the suit of the Franklin Bank, 60 00. These expenses were all 
considered unavoidable.

It will be seen that the sum of 340 00, which has been paid by 
the Treasurer, for military services, is to be reimbursed by the 
State; and if the town should think best, as has been recommend- 
ed, to use a part of the "surplus revenue," to defray the expenses 
already incurred for Armories, they will then have available funds, 
with the balance now in the Tieasury and due from Collector, 
amounting to $2179 36, which will show that although some of 
the expenditures have exceeded the appropriations, on the whole, 
the disbursing officers of the town, have practised economy as far 
as they were able. 

Annexed, is an estimate of the sums necessary to be appropria- 
ted for the present year, and the resources to meet the same, 
together with the sum to be raised by taxes, which has been pre- 
pared by the Selectmen. 

The Auditors, in conclusion, would state, that the vote passed 
in April last, requiring all disbursements to be made from the 
Treasury, and that the orders for the same, should state for what 
purposes they were drawn, and to what appropriations applied, 
has been as strictly adhered to, as was possible under the circum- 
stances.
