It may be proper for the Committee to observe that in 

this statement the expenditures for West Roxbury are 

embraced to May 24th. 

The City Debt, on the first day of Febru- 
ary, 1851, as per account of last year, 
amounted to the sum of ... $48,476 65 

Of this sum there has been paid, during 

the year, when falling due, . . . 2,500 00 



Reducing the debt to ... . $ 45,976 65 
Which has been increased by loans author- 
ized for the following purposes, viz :

For Stony Brook Lands, . 45,000 00 

For Land, corner Wash- 
ington and Heath streets, 13,644 45 

For town of West Rox- 
bury, for its proportion 
of Public Property, . 11,765 95 



94,410 40 



Making the total City Debt at this time; . $140,387 05 

The times when this sum becomes payable, may be 
seen by referring to the Schedule of the City Debt ac- 
companying this Report. 

In the report of the Overseers of the Poor, appended, 
will be found a detailed statement of the Poor and Alms- 
house, and the expenditures for the same will be found 
under the appropriate heads in the details of appropria- 
tions and expenditures accompanying this report. New 
buildings have been erected at Brook Farm during the 
past year, for the accommodation of the inmates, at a 
cost of $9,235, and the old establishment on Highland 
street, vacated on the 22d day of December last. 

The amount expended for Schools is considerably in- 
creased over that of last year. A new and commodious 
Grammar Schoolhouse has been erected in the vicinity of 
Davis street, Ward 1. The expenditures for this depart- 
ment; for teachers' salaries, fuel, appropriation for Roxbury 
Grammar School, contingencies, including the building of 
the new Grammar Schoolhouse, amount to $36,989 63. 

The amount expended for Highways, Bridges and 
Sidewalks, is $9,698 58. A large gravel hill, containing 
about 8f acres, situated at the corner of Washington and 
Heath streets, was purchased in October last, at a cost of 
$14,263 70. 

It will be seen that the ordinary expenditures of the 
Fire Department have increased over those of last year, 
which is occasioned chiefly by the increase of the pay of 
Firemen. It is proper to state that for the greater portion 



of last year, several of the Engines were without com- 
panies. The report of the Chief Engineer on the state 
and condition of the department, with details of service 
and other subjects connected, is appended. 

In consequence of repeated applications having been 
made to the City Council relative to the condition of 
Stony Brook, near Ruggles street, the opinion of the Con- 
sulting Physicians was obtained, and the Board of Health, 
after taking testimony and making an examination of the 
premises, declared the brook to be in a state of nuisance, 
from White's Mill to Tremont Street Bridge, and injurious 
to the health of the inhabitants of this city, and that it 
was necessary to abate the same forthwith. Different 
modes were suggested for abating this nuisance, but the 
most feasible one appeared to be, to change the course of 
the stream, and fill up the old water course and flats on 
both sides of the same. To accomplish this object more 
effectually, it became necessary for the city to purchase a 
portion of the property lying between Tremont and Rug- 
gles streets, and northeast of the foot bridge. The loan 
authorized for this purpose was $70,000. The amount 
expended to the present time for the purchase of land, 
constructing culverts and filling up, is $34,324. For a 
more detailed statement on this subject, reference may be 
made to the report of the Joint Special Committee on 
Public Squares, — City Doc. No. 11, — which has been 
distributed among the inhabitants of the city. 

In addition to the ordinary expenditures there has been 
a considerable outlay for permanent improvements, the 
past year, amounting to $72,836 01, for the following 
purposes, viz : 

For land, 8g acres, corner Washington and 

Heath streets, .... $14,263 70 

" Stony Brook Lands, . 34,324 00 

" Dearborn Schoolhouse and Land, . 15,013 31 

" Buildings at Brook Farm, . . . 9,235 00 



$72,836 01 



" A bill was passed by the Legislature of this Com- 
monwealth on the 24th day of May last, setting off a por- 
tion of the territory of this city, and incorporating the 



same into a new town, under the name of 'West Rox- 
bury.' The territory set off embraces what was known 
as Wards 6, 7 and 8, and parts of Wards 4 and 5. It 
was provided in the act, that the Brook Farm and the 
Cemetery at Forest Hills, both within the territorial limits 
of the new town, shall belong to the City of Roxbury 
and be free from taxation, if the city shall elect to take 
them and assume the liabilities for the same. By an 
order of the City Council,, passed June 30, the City 
elected to take the property and assumed all liabilities 
for it. 

" The dividing line between the City and the Town 
of West Roxbury has been fixed and established, and 
suitable stone monuments erected, under the direction of 
committees appointed by the two Corporations. 

" A division of the public property has also been made 
by appropriate committees appointed by the city and town 
for that purpose, and vested with full powers. 

" By the terms of agreement, the real estate owned in 
common and situated within the territorial limits of West 
Roxbury, (except the Brook Farm and the Cemetery, at 
Forest Hills,) to become the property of West Roxbury, 
at the valuation, as appears upon page .53, City Docu- 
ment, No. 6, 1851. The real estate owned in common 
and situated within the territorial limits of the City of 
Roxbury to become the property of said city, at the valu- 
ation as appears in the document and page before men- 
tioned, (except the fiats in the empty basin of the Mill 
Dam.) subject to a deduction of $10,000 from the valua- 
tion therein made, and the same to be divided according 
to the valuation of the City, as made by the assessors in 
May last. 

"All the personal property, including hay scales, hearses, 
fire engines, hose carriages, ladder and bucket carriages, 
stock and furniture at the Almshouse and Brook Farm, 
furniture in the Schoolhouses, City Hall, and personal 
property of every description, to become the property of 
the city or town having them in charge, without appraise- 
ment. 

" The city debt to be apportioned to the city and town, 
according to the last city valuation made by the assessors 
in May last, and no interest to be charged to West Rox- 
bury for its portion of said debt, from the 24th of May, 



9 

and as an offset, the City of Roxbury is not to be charged 
with any portion of the income or rent of any property 
assigned to it. 

" The Flats, so called, in the empty basin of the Mill 
Dam, are to be under the sole control and jurisdiction of 
the city, and the town of West Roxbury is to bear its 
proportion of the expense in maintaining the title, re- 
moving trespasses, &c, and to receive its proportion of 
any income that may be derived for the use of them. 

"West Roxbury, for its share of the property within our 
limits, is to receive the scrip of the city, dated December 
1st, 1851, and payable in seven and eight years, with 
interest semi-annually. The amount of scrip issued for 
this purpose, is $11,765 95. The necessary papers to 
carry into effect this agreement, have been prepared and 
executed under orders passed December 1st and 22d, 
1851." * 

Agreeably to the provisions of the act of the Legisla- 
ture, establishing the town of West Roxbury, the taxes 
assessed upon the inhabitants and owners of property in 
West Roxbury, on the first of May, after deducting the 
reasonable expenses of assessing and collecting in the 
same, was in part paid over to the Town Treasurer, 
amounting to $10,000. The balance, $9,733 65, will be 
paid 1st of March. And there has also been paid to West 
Roxbury, the sum of $11,765 95, the same being the 
amount due that town for its portion of the corporate 
property, as ascertained and agreed upon by committees 
of the town and city. 

The act of the Legislature, relating to the Cemetery, 
requires that the proceeds of sales of lots or rights of 
burial in Forest Hills Cemetery, shall be paid into the 
City Treasury, to be kept separate from any other funds 
of the City, and subject to the order of the commission- 
ers. The proceeds are to be devoted to the liquidation of 
the debt incurred in the purchase of the land, and for im- 
proving and embellishing the grounds. 

The amount received into the Treasury 
from February 1, 1851, to February 1, 
1852. from sundry persons, for sales and

grading lots, including balance on hand, 

was $16,756 77 

And the amount paid upon the drafts or 
orders of the commissioners for the same 
period was ...... 15,436 49 



Leaving a balance in the Treasury, Feb- 
ruary 1, 1851, of $1,320 28 

* 

The Cemetery Debt, incurred in the purchase of the 
land, amounts to $27,551 55. The times when this sum 
becomes payable, may be seen by referring to the Sched- 
ule accompanying this report. 

Appended will be found the report of the Commission- 
ers of the Cemetery which contains an interesting state- 
ment of their doings the past year ; the state and condi- 
tion of the Cemetery ; the receipts from sales and grading 
lots ; and the various items of expenditure, together with

* The Debt of the Cemetery is kept separately from the ordinary City Debt, and 
provision is made for the payment of the same by the proceeds of the sales of lots 
in the grounds, as will be seen by the following section from the Act obtained from 
the Legislature : — 

Sect. 4. "The proceeds of 'sales of lots or rights of burial in said Cemetery 
shall be paid into the City Treasury, to be kept separate from any other funds of the 
City, and subject to the order of said Commissioners, and such proceeds shall be 
devoted to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land for said 
Cemetery, and to the improvement and embellishment thereof, as aforesaid, under 
the direction of said Board of Commissioners. And no other moneys shall be appro- 
priated from the City Treasury by the City Council for such improvement and em-

REPORT 



OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



City of Roxbury, Feb. 23, 1852. 

The Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxbury, res- 
pectfully submit the following 

REPORT: 

Since the last Annual Report, submitted by our late 
worthy Mayor, the Chairman of our Board, great changes 
have taken place in the local affairs of our city. 

By an act of the Legislature of this Commonwealth, 
passed the 24th May, 1851, a portion of the City, con- 
taining seven tenths of its territory, and embracing about 
$4,000,000 of the $14,000,000 of its taxable property, 
has been taken from us and formed into a new town. 

If, by taking so large a portion of the territory and 
wealth of the City, the new town had also taken a like 
proportion of its public burdens, a degree of fairness 
would be somewhat apparent in the act, but the facts are 
otherwise. Of 233, the average number of paupers sup- 
ported in the Almshouse, but 9 belong to West Roxbury ; 
the residue are left for us to support. 

During the past year the City Council, with commend- 
able liberality, has expended some nine thousand dollars 
in the erection of a new edifice and the enlargement of 
the old buildings at Brook Farm, for the accommodation 
of the Almshouse establishment, all of which has been 
performed in a satisfactory manner. With the exception 
of a small cost for the erection of suitable fences,, and 
some other slight additions and fixtures, the above amount 



56 

will probably be ample for the accommodation of the 
poor for many years to come. 

If the Legislature should supply " County Houses" for 
the reception of the State poor, and support and maintain 
them, as we have reason to suppose they will dp, we 
shall then be able to provide for our own City paupers 
nearer home ; the whole number now in the house be- 
longing to the City being only twenty. 

For the more particular condition of the House and 
Farm, reference may be had to the Annual Report of the 
Superintendent, who has been unwearied in his efforts to 
do all in his power for the comfort of the unfortunate 
under his charge, and at the same time has so prudently 
managed the affairs of the establishment as to give entire 
satisfaction to this Board. 

The Report of Dr. Cotting, Physician to the House, is 
appended to this document, nor is it without sincere regret 
that we are called on to state, that the official connection ' 
which has so pleasantly existed for several years between 
him and the Board of Overseers, is now terminated by 
his resignation. Entertaining the same opinion that for- 
mer Boards have uniformly expressed, of the manner in 
which he has performed the duties of his office, we are 
happy to add our testimony to the fidelity, kindness and 
skill he has invariably manifested, and his cheerful devo- 
tion at all times, regardless of personal ease or conven- 
ience, to the relief of the sick within the House. 

In taking our official leave of Dr. Cotting, the Board 
would beg his acceptance of their personal regards, and 
the assurance of their continued wishes for his profes- 
sional success. 

The school under the charge of Miss Hannah Hall, 
we hope is now permanently located in the building ex- 
pressly provided for it, and that it may succeed as hereto- 
fore. Within the last six months its general course has 
been interrupted by two removals, and although the 
teacher has devoted her entire energies, and is well 
adapted to her calling, yet the school is not in such a 
nourishing condition as we could wish. It is in contem- 
plation to change the arrangement by appointing a suita- 
ble male teacher in the place of Miss Hall, whose duty it 
shall be to attend to the children by night as well as by 
day, and also to instruct the boys in the rudiments of 



57 

agriculture and horticulture, and the essential branches of 
an English education. The school committee have ap- 
pointed a sub-committee with full powers to cooperate 
with this Board to effect such or a similar arrangement. 
The whole number of scholars attending the school at 
Brook Farm is 87 ; age of the pupils varying from five to 
fifteen years : average age, eight years. 

Our City Missionary has laid the Board under great 
obligations by his voluntary services of imparting reli- 
gious instruction to the inmates at the Almshouse on the 
Sabbath : it is to his commendable exertions that a Li- 
brary has been commenced. Such benevolence demands 
our thanks. 

The account of this Board against the Commonwealth 
for the support of the State paupers, and the Board of 
Health for the ship fever patients, is $5,824 85 ; and in 
anticipation of the receipt of the same, an additional 
appropriation of $5,000 was made by the City Council 
for the support of the poor. 

The following is a statement of the receipts and ex- 
penditures for the support of the poor of the City, from 
July 1st, 1851, to July 1st, 1852.

EEPORT 



SUPERINTENDENT OF THE ALMSHOUSE. 



Roxbury, January 26, 1852. 
To the Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxbury : 

Gentlemen : The time having arrived for me to pre- 
sent to your Board my Annual Report of the Almshouse, 
I beg leave to present the following statement. The 
number admitted to the Almshouse, during the year 1851, 
is about the same that was admitted during 1850. There 
has been less sickness the past year than the year pre- 
vious. 

Mr. Dan Y. Boynton, my assistant, has faithfully dis- 
charged all the duties that have been imposed upon 
him. The nurse has had very arduous duties to perform 
during the past year, and has performed them faithfully 
and cheerfully with kindness to the sick and suffering. 
The Farm has been very productive the past summer, 
taking into consideration the disadvantage in carrying 
it on. 

We feel much indebted to Mr. James Ritchie, the City 
Missionary, for the manifest interest he has taken in the 
spiritual welfare of the inmates. 

The number of inmates in the house at the com- 
mencement of the year, was .... 294

EEPOKT 



PHYSICIAN TO THE ALMSHOUSE. 



To the Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxbury : 

Gentlemen : The amount of sickness at the Alms- 
house has been much less than usual during the past 
year, — less than that of any year since 1846. The larg- 
est number of cases occurred in 1847, when they amount- 
ed to five hundred and fifty-six. Since that time there 
has been a decided decrease. The number for the year 
ending this day* is two hundred and forty-eight. The 
number of sick in the house usually corresponds to the 
degree of sickness in the city ; and we learn from reliable 
sources that this has been true for the past year. An 
unusual degree of health has prevailed amongst those 
classes from which the house is supplied with inmates. 

There has been about the ordinary variety of diseases, 
of which the following table is a summary : — 



* This Report was read January 26th, but the statistics have been brought up to

Of those under treatment at the close of last year, {not 
included in the foregoing table,) twenty-two have recov- 
ered, two have left, and seven have died, making the 
whole number of deaths in the house forty-eight. 

During the past year, as heretofore, many have come 
in after recovery became improbable or all hope was gone, 
merely to have a more comfortable place of shelter in 
their last moments. 

The removal to Brook Farm, (distant seven miles,) 
took place on December 23d last, at which time there 
were eleven on the sick list. The present number is 
twenty-one. 

I have been officially informed, gentlemen, that at your 
last meeting I was unanimously rechosen for the ensuing 
year. 

With suitable acknowledgments for your repeated and 
continued partiality, I feel constrained to ask permission 
to retire from the office I have so long held, at such time 
as may please you to appoint a successor. 



When, two years since, I had resolved to resign, your 
unanimous vote and unexpected liberality, together with 
the complimentary suggestions of your late lamented 
chairman, induced me to forego my own purposes and to 
continue in your service. Subsequently, while in con- 
stant expectation of the removal of the establishment, I 
consented to remain until that event should take place. 
On the 15th of December last I placed the office at your 
disposal, and hold it now merely to finish the term and to 
await your convenience. 

The office has been one of responsibility, sometimes 
of great labor and much personal hazard. Recently the 
duties have become less onerous, and there is reason to 
hope that they will continue so. Through the whole 
eight years of my service, I have uniformly experienced 
every mark of kindness and courtesy from each and 
every member of the various Boards under town and city 
governments ; and I have ever found in them an active 
readiness to adopt, to the extent of their power, every 
suggestion for the better accommodation and relief of the 
sick admitted into the institution. Uniform kindness and 
attention to the sick have also ever been characteristic of 
your worthy Superintendent. Twenty-five hundred sick 
have, during these eight years, been under his roof, and 
it is but simple justice to say, that he has ever been un- 
weariedly devoted to the calls, however importunate, of 
all under his care. 

Though our official relations, gentlemen, may cease, I 
shall never cease to remember and to acknowledge my 
many obligations to you officially and personally, and to 
wish you the fullest measure of success in your continued 
endeavors to relieve the sick and destitute, of whatever 
name or nation, who may become dependent on the char- 
ities of our community. 

I remain, gentlemen, your obedient servant, 

B. E. COTTING, 
Physician to the Almshouse. 

Rozbury, Jan. 31st, 1852. 



REPOE T 



COMMISSIONERS 



FOREST HILLS CEMETERY. 



In conformity to the fifth section of "An Act relative to a 
Public Cemetery in the City of Roxbury," the Com- 
missioners respectfully submit their 

FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT. 

Since our last Annual Report, the Forest Hills Ceme- 
tery has received the remains of one of its earliest pro- 
prietors and most ardent and devoted laborers for its 
adornment as an appropriate receptacle of the dead. 
Within that sacred enclosure, which his own taste had 
with so much skill arranged and so much beauty begun 
to adorn, now sleeps the late Hon. H. A. S. Dearborn, 
Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, not to awake 
till the morning of the resurrection. Gen. Dearborn was 
the first choice of the City authorities for Commissioner, 
and by the unanimous voice of his colleagues, the man 
of all others to be desired as their Chairman, had the 
whole Commonwealth been open to their election. Hav- 
ing with most assiduous toil and self-denying devotion 
watched over the interests of this new and sacred enter- 
prise, and traced in graceful lines the avenues and foot 
paths, among the rocks and hights of our Forest Hills, 
he now rests from his labors, amidst the lasting monu- 
ments of his own rearing, more significant and enduring, 
if possible, than the granite column with its marble vase, 
9 



66 

which grateful respect has consecrated to mark the place. 
of his repose. 

There has been a continued demand for lots in the 
Cemetery, corresponding very nearly to that of the pre- 
vious year ; and the different kinds of work have been 
advanced in proportion to the demand. 

One hundred and five lots have been finished during 
the year, which with eighteen, finished and unsold at the 
commencement of the year, make one hundred and 
twenty-three. Of this number, one hundred and one 
have been sold, and a part of the remaining twenty-two 
have been selected, and the transfer will doubtless soon 
be completed, and come into the next year's report. 

Twenty-five other lots have been trenched, and are 
ready for the setting of the stone posts and sodding, as 
soon as the season will permit. Five tombs have been 
built during the year, and thirty-four brick graves con- 
structed. Thirty-eight lots have been enclosed with iron 
fences, and fifteen monuments erected. One of these 
monuments was the united free-will offering of the work- 
men in the Cemetery to the memory of the lamented 
Dearborn, — a monument at once of the sensibility and 
kind feeling of the contributors, and of the urbanity and 
worth of him whose name it bears, which should win 
from them such a memorial. 

It is known that the citizens, desirous of commemorat- 
ing the eminent services of their late friend and Mayor, 
are taking measures to erect a monument to his memory. 
It will be placed upon the summit of Mount Dearborn. 
The Committee having in charge the collection of funds 
for this object, have received about $> 1,450 of the needed 
amount. 

One hundred and fifty graves have been trenched and 
sodded during the year in that portion of the Cemetery 
called the " Field of Machpelah," which has been ar- 
ranged with great neatness and adorned with trees, with 
special reference to the wants' of those who do not need 
a lot of the ordinary size. In this " Field" graves can 
be purchased for seven dollars each. 

About $1,500 have been expended upon the avenues 
and paths. Seventeen hundred and fifty feet in length 
have been trenched ; the loam removed to the lots as it 



67 

was needed for finishing the same, and the trenches filled 
with stone and gravelled. 

There has been an expenditure of about $600, on 
Forest Hills Avenue, which leads from Scarborough 
street to the northern gateway. 

Nearly the whole distance has been covered with stone, 
and in the lower places to the depth of at least three feet, 
in order to improve the grade ; and the whole covered 
with gravel. 

Much labor has been bestowed upon the grounds with- 
in the Cemetery near the northern gateway, by grading 
the avenues and paths leading from it, and denning the 
borders with sods, by which that main entrance has been 
rendered more neat and attractive. 

Another important item of labor, for the improvement 
and beauty of the Cemetery, was executed during the 
drought of last summer and autumn. An excavation, 
some five or more feet in depth, and of about 10,000 
superficial feet, was made in the low grounds near the 
junction of Elm and Fountain Avenues, and a bank wall 
five hundred feet in extent was built around the excava- 
tion. At the bottom of this excavation there are living 
springs of water, which, it is believed, will flow perpetu- 
ally into it, thus furnishing a most delightful pond of 
pure, limpid water. The ground has been graded from 
the top of the wall which encircles the pond to the ave- 
nues above mentioned, and a strip eight feet wide around 
the pond has been sodded. Hundreds of small fish, of 
various kinds, were found within the compass of the ex- 
cavation, which were carefully preserved, and a more 
commodious and desirable home furnished them in the 
newly constructed pond. The excavation for the above 
described pond was anticipated in the original design of 
the Cemetery, and was named by the deceased Dearborn, 
" Lake Hibiscus," as mentioned in the first report of the 
Commissioners. 

Great success has attended the rearing of seedling trees, 
shrubs and flowers in the Cemetery. The nursery has 
already become very important in furnishing the trees 
and shrubs for ornamenting the borders of the avenues 
and footpaths. 

The Commissioners are greatly indebted to the emi- 
nent skill and taste of their faithful and efficient Superin- 



68 



tendent, Mr. Brims, for the success of their efforts in the 
improvement and embellishment of the Cemetery ; and 
also to J. W. Dudley, the City Treasurer, and J. W. 
Tucker, City Clerk, for the faithful discharge of their 
trusts, and the important aid thus rendered the Commis- 
sioners ill accomplishing their designs. 

The receipts and expenditures have been as follows :

Note. — Since the above account was made up, as there was a sufficient balance 
on hand, one of the notes given to John Parkinson, Esq., for the purchase of land 
for the Cemetery, has been paid, amounting', with the interest which had accrued on 
the same, to $1,1)36 33. 

During the year ending January 31, 1852, there were 
one hundred and ninety interments in the private lots, 
twenty-seven in graves in the Field of Machpelah, and 
forty-six in the free ground. 

It having been ascertained by the Commissioners, that 
several holders of lots in the Cemetery were desirous, by 
grant or bequest, of providing for the permanent care and 
embellishment of their lots, they requested the City 
Council to petition the Legislature for the passage of an 
act, which should enable them to receive and hold in 
trust any such grants or bequests for the purposes above 
named, and the act obtained is herewith subjoined. The 
Commissioners, therefore, cherish the hope, that a meas- 
ure so effectually securing the perpetual improvement and 
beauty of this sacred receptacle of the dead, will be re- 
garded with favor and practically adopted by all the pro- 
prietors.

tives, in General Court assembled, and by the authority 
of the same, as follows : 

Sect. 1. The board of commissioners of the rural 
cemetery in Roxbury, elected by the city council, pursu- 
ant to an act approved March 24, 1848, are authorized to 
take and hold any grant, donation or bequest of property, 
upon trust, to apply the same, or the income thereof, for 
the improvement or embellishment of the said cemetery, 
or for the erection, repair, preservation or renewal of any 
monument, fence or other erection, or for the planting 
and cultivation of trees, shrubs or plants, in or around 
any lot, or for improving the said premises in any other 
manner or form, consistent with the purposes for which 
said cemetery is established, according to the terms of 
such grant, donation or bequest. And whenever any 
such grant, donation or bequest, or any deposit shall be 
made by the proprietor of any lot in said cemetery, for 
the annual repair, preservation or embellishment of such 



71

give to such proprietor, or his representative, an agree- 
ment or obligation, in such form and upon such terms and

cil of Roxbury shall accept the same, at a meeting of

REPORT 



CHIEF ENGINEER OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. 



Roxbury, February 1st, 1852. 

To the Honorable the Mayor and Aldermen, and Com- 
mon Council. 

Gentlemen : In conformity to Section sixth of the 
Fire Ordinance of this City, I respectfully submit the 
annexed Report of a List of Members of the Roxbury 
Fire Department, with their Ages and Residences ; the 
condition of the Engine Houses, Engines and Apparatus ; 
the number of Reservoirs and their location: also the 
number of Fires and Alarms within the City from Feb- 
ruary 1st, 1851, to February 1st, 1852, with the Amount 
of Loss and Insurance. 

From which it appears the Department consists of 4 En- 
gineers and 182 Firemen. There are six Engines and 7 
Hose Carriages, one Hook and Ladder Carriage, carrying 
4 Fire Hooks and 10 Ladders, 151 feet of Suction Hose, 
and 3725 feet of Leading Hose. 

The Department has been called out the past year from 
fires, 36 times ; false alarms, 9 times ; burning of chimneys, 
3 times ; ringing of factory bells, 1 time ; bursting of a 
steam boiler, 1 time ; alarms originating out of the City, 16 
times ; making a total of 66 alarms. The loss by fire 
amounts to $28,350 ; the insurance on the same to $ 27,- 
650. $21,100 of the loss was caused by the fires in 
Appleton Place. 

The Engine houses, generally, are in good condition, 
with the exception of Engine House No. 1, and the Hook 
and Ladder House, which will require considerable repairs 
the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, \ 

A. S. PARKER, 

Chief Engineer.
