The City Debt on the first day of February, 1853, 

as per account of last year, was . . . $186,810 40 

Of this sum, there has been paid during the year, 

when falling due, ..... 28,700 00 



Reducing the debt to ' . . . $158,110 40 

Which has been increased by loans authorized, for 

the renewal of a portion of the debt, . . 23,000 00 



Making the total City Debt at this time, . . $181,110 40 

The times when this sum becomes payable, may be seen by refer- 
ring to the schedule of the City Debt accompanying this Report. 

It will be observed that there has been a reduction of the debt 
the past year of $5,700. Of the sum of $28,700, which fell 
due during the year, $23,000 was paid by a renewal of the 
same, and $5,700 received from the sales of Munroe and Stony 
Brook lands. There still remain in the Treasury notes of sundry 
individuals secured by mortgage of $19,201 90, which, as they 
become due, will be appropriated to the liquidation of the City 
Debt, as directed by the City Council. 

The report of the Overseers of the Poor is appended. The 
items of expenditure in this department will be found under the 
appropriate heads in the details of appropriations and expendi- 



tures. The amount expended during the year for the support of 
the Poor was $11,458 80. There was received into the Treasury 
for this purpose, from the Commonwealth, from other towns and 
cities and from other sources, the sum of $4,231 6Q ; showing 
the net cost to be $7,227 14. It was supposed that the buildings 
erected by the Commonwealth would have been ready for the re- 
ception of the State Paupers early in the winter, but it is thought 
they will not be ready for occupancy for some weeks to come. 
When this shall have been accomplished, the cost of this depart- 
ment will be greatly reduced. 

A new Primary School-house has been erected on Francis 
street, which, with the land, cost $3,879 12. The entire cost of 
the Schools, — that is, for teachers' salaries, fuel, appropriation for 
High School, — amounts to $26,391 51. This is an increase 
over last year of $1,681 90. 

The expenditures for Highways, Bridges and Sidewalks, amount 
to $10,666 28, which is less than those of last year by $5,173 92. 

Besides the ordinary cost of repairs of Highways, there has 
been expended for grading a portion of Buggies and Orange 
streets, $2,709 89. There has also been paid for land taken for 
widening Highland, Warren and Washington streets, $1,631 78. 

Under the State Valuation of 1850, Roxbury pays nearly 
twenty-eight per cent, of the tax of the County of Norfolk. By 
the terms of agreement between Roxbury and West Roxbury in 
the division, — the former pays seventy-one and three-quarters per 
cent., and the latter, twenty-eight and one quarter per cent, of all 
State and County Taxes levied upon Roxbury. 

The State Tax for 1853 was, .... $6,612 00 
Of which, Roxbury paid, . . $4,746 35 

West Roxbury paid, . 1,865 65 

$6,612 00

For the state and condition of the Fire Department, -with details 
of service, reference may be made to the report of the Chief En- 
gineer, "which is appended. The items of expenditure for this 
department may be found in the details of expenditures accompa- 
nying this report. Four Reservoirs have been built durmg the 
year at a cost of $1,721 10, and located — one at the junction of 
Oak and Edinboro' streets, one on Norfolk street, one on Davis 
street, and one on Adams, near Eustis street. 

There has been expended for Lamps (fluid, lighting, repairs, &c.) 
the sum of $3,243 14, showing an increase of 811 67 over the 
preceding year. 

Appended will be found the annual report of the Commissioners 
of the Cemetery, giving a statement of their doings for the year, 
the state and condition of the Cemetery, the receipts from sales 
and grading lots, and the various items of expenditure, together 
with the names of the purchasers of lots. 

The Act of the Legislature requires that the proceeds of sales of 
lots or rights of burial, shall be paid into the Treasury of the City, 
to be kept separate from any other funds of the City, and subject 
to the order of the Commissioners. The proceeds are to be de- 
voted to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the 
land, and for improving and embellishing the grounds. 

The amount received into the Treasury from Feb. 
1, 1853, to Feb. 1, 1854, from sundry persons, 
for sales and grading lots, including balance on 
hand, was . ' $27,973 94 

And the amount paid upon the drafts or orders of 

the Commissioners for the same period, was . 26,312 22 

Leaving a balance in the Treasury, Feb. 1, 1854, of $1,661 72

Of which there has been paid during the year, . 5,144 98

* The Debt of the Cemetery is kept separately from the ordinary City Debt, and pro- 
vision 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 shal' 
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 appropriated from the 
City Treasury by the City Council for such improvement and embellishment."

REPOET 



OVERSEEES OF THE POOE 



City of Roxbury, February 27, 1854. 

The Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxburj, respectfully 
submit the following 

REPORT: 

For the year ending with the 31st ult., the Receipts and Ex- 
penditures for the support of the Poor of the City, have been as 
follows. 

RECEIPTS FOR THE SUPPORT OF POOR, FROM FEB. 1, im, TO 
FEB. 1, 1854. 

Balance undrawn Feb. 1, 1853, . |1,886 17 

Received from the Commonwealth, 
from Pauper Account, which, after 
deducting appropriation of $2,000, 
January 1st, 1853, leaves a bal- 
ance of 409 38 

Additional appropriation, . . 370 52

port of Paupers, . . . 978 00 

Received from Isaac H. Meserve, for 

Bonded Passengers, . . . 278 58

bursed from the State Pauper Ac- 
count, 2,000 00 



EXPENDITURES. 

For Support of Poor, . . . $11,458 80 
Balance unexpended, ... 29 55 



$11,488 35 



$11,488 35 



In our account against the Common-wealth for the support of 
" State Paupers" and " Ship-fever patients," for the year ending 
31st October, 1851, there Avas a deduction made by the State 
Auditor and confirmed by the Committee on Accounts of the 
Legislature for 1852, of $2,5G2 18 ; of this sum, $1,100 were 
allowed by the Committee on Claims of the Legislature for the 
year 1853, which allowance was confirmed by the Legislature. 

The account against the Commonwealth for the support of State 
Paupers for the year ending October 31, 1853, amounting to 
$2,821 71, we had every reason to hope would be allowed in full, 
but by a rule applied to pauper accounts, by the State Auditor, 
we learn there has been a deduction of $630 79. 

In view of the probable removal of the State Paupers to the 
State Almshouse in May or June next, the Board are of the opin- 
ion that an appropriation of $4,000 will be sufficient for this de- 
partment for the ensuing year. 

Mr. Isaac H. Meserve, who has, for a period of twelve years, 
been the able and faithful Superintendent of the Almshouse estab- 
ment, having been appointed by the Governor of the Common- 
wealth, Superintendent of the State Almshouse at Tewksbury, 
retired on the 31st ult. from the duties he has so long discharged 
with honor to himself and satisfaction to the city. 

Mr. Ezra Young has been appointed Superintendent, in place 
of Mr. Meserve, resigned, and has entered upon the duties of his 
office. 

The expediency of providing a place less extensive than Brook 
Farm for the accommodation of our poor, Avhen the buildings now 
being erected by the Commonwealth for the reception of State 
Paupers shall have been completed, and the State Paupers re- 
moved thereto^ is a question for the early consideration of the City 
Council.

For a statement in detail of the Department, reference may be 
had to the reports of the late Superintendent, and of Dr. Allen, 
the excellent and attentive Physician, which are herewith an- 
nexed. 

LINUS B. COMINS, 

Mayor and JEx-officio Chairman of the 
Board of Overseers of the Poor.

same with the accompanying papers.

The most of the beef was purchased in Brighton, and slaugh- 
tered at the Farm. 

The grounds cultivated produced very well. I planted five 
acres to corn. The average product was 90 bushels to the acre. 
The best acre produced 105 bushels, for which I was awarded a 
premium at the Norfolk County Agricultural Fair. 

I planted seven acres of potatoes. The crop was good, but 
they were mostly destroyed by the disease which prevailed to a 
very great extent in this place ; we lost by the rot about 1000 
bushels. 

The root crop was good. Much of the work on the Farm this 
year, as well as last, was done by the largest of the school-boys, 
•which has been very much to their advantage in learning to work. 
The Farm is in a good state of cultivation. I have sowed to 
grass seed the past Fall eight acres, with the ground in good con- 
dition for a crop of grass next Summer ; and I think you will find 
it necessary to build a barn the coming Summer, should it be a 
good hay seasouj to be able to receive all the hay cut on the Farm; 



58 

I sowed last Fall about six acres to •winter rye. "We have a 
large quantity of good manure on hand, for use in the Spring. 
We took from the meadow last Fall to the high ground 300 loads 
of vegetable muck, for the action of the frost this Winter, that it 
may be ready for compost in the Spring. 

The inmates have conducted themselves well. I have had no 
difficulty in keeping good order ; the most of them have perform- 
ed their duties cheerfully and with considerable interest. The 
house has been remarkably healthy the past year. You will see 
by the statement of inmates, there have been but 11 deaths — nine 
of these were adults, and were brought to the house to die ; the 
other two were infants, that died Avith marasmus. 

The physician, Ira Allen, has attended to his duties faithfully 
and cheerfully, with good results. For a statement of the medi- 
cal department of the house, please see Physician's Report. We 
have had religious services during the year ; we have been sup- 
plied by students from the Theological Institution at Newton. 
For their services they have been paid $2 for each Sabbath. 

Since January 31st, 1847, to January 31st, 1854, there have 
been admitted to the Almshouse 3804 persons, 2507 of whom 
have been under medical treatment during their stay in the house 
— 3372 have been discharged — 258 have died — and 174 now re- 
main in the house. 

Gentlemen — Though my official relations with the Board have 
ceased, permit me to state, that, through the whole twelve years 
of my service as Superintendent of the Almshouse, I have receiv- 
ed every mark of kindness from each and every member of the 
several Boards under the town and city governments ; and I have 
ever found them ready to adopt every suggestion that would fur- 
ther benefit those unfortunate and destitute persons who have 
been placed under my care for relief and protection, irrespective 
of character or nationality. 

I shall never cease to remember my many obligations to the 
several Boards who have directed me in the discharge of my 
official duties, and wish them success in their continued efforts to 
relieve the destitute who are objects of charity in our community. 

Most respectfully submitted by your obedient servant, 

Isaac H. Meserve, 
Superintendent of Almshouse.

There have been six births in the house the past year. Those 
now under medical treatment in the Hospital were admitted with 
chronic diseases, and of that nature that there is but little hope of 
rendering them more than temporary relief. A large proportion- 
of the persons admitted to the house during the early part of the 
past year, were admitted direct to the Hospital for medical assist- 
ance. West Roxbury have sent their sick to the house the past 
year, for whom they have paid the city extra pay for medical at- 
tendance, nursing, &c. The inmates of the house have been very 
healthy, more particularly the children. There have been but 
two deaths in the house of persons under the age of twenty-three 
years, during the year ; and I think I am justified in saying, that 
the good health of the inmates and children may, in great meas- 
ure, be attributed to the strict order and discipline for cleanliness, 
which have ever been characteristic of the Superintendent, his wife 
and his assistants, and which has been rigidty enforced among the 
inmates of the house. The nurse, whose duty it has been to take 
care of the sick, has discharged her duty faithfully, and I believe 
to the satisfaction of all under her care. 

With acknowledgments to the Board for repeated acts of kind- 
ness, 

I remain, Gentlemen, your obedient servant, 

Ira Allen, 
Physician to the Almshouse.

COMMISSMW OF FOKEST ILLS METERY. 



The Commissioners of Forest Hills Cemetery, in conformity to the 
fifth section of " An Act relative to a PubHc Cercietery in the 
City of Roxbury," respectfully submit their 

SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT. 

Since our last Report, Henry Codman, Esq., one of the Commis- 
sioners, who was twice elected to that office by the City Council, 
has been removed by death. In announcing this event, we are 
reminded of his attention to the duties in the early laying out of 
the Cemetery, and of the assistance afforded by his good judg- 
ment and taste at the many consultations held in the progress of 
the work. 

Each succeeding year gives new interest to the trust committed 
to the Commissioners of Forest Hills Cemetery. Publicly conse^ 
crated as the sacred receptacle of the dead, it is yearly becoming 
more and more consecrated in the deepest sympathies of many 
hearts, as the resting-place of all that was mortal of friends de- 
parted, over whose sleeping forms, so long and so fondly cherished, 
affection still comes to pay its frequent and gushing tribute. 

The progress made in grading and beautifying the grounds of 
this hallowed enclosure, has rendered it an object of attraction 
the past, far beyond any preceding year, and fully realizing the 
most sanguine anticipations expressed in the last Report. 

The happy combination of the ornamental with the rural in 
these improvements, as the work advances, more fully developes 
thQ fitness <?f the spot for its end, and invests it with m ^ of 



" 62 

clieerfulness, beautifully contrasting with the bleak and gloomy 
aspect of ordinary grave-yards. If any one, as he comes into this 
"garden of graves," should be disposed to say, in the language of 
another, " Already am I half in love with Death," he will hardly 
fail to be reminded still more strongly of those 

" Sweet fields beyond the swelling floods," 
where 

" Everlasting spring abides, 
And never-fading flowers," 

in the midst of whose pure and heavenly beauties the spirit should 
be able with joy to await the resurrection of its tabernacle from a 
resting-place so lovely. 

The demand for lots the last year has been greater than at any 
former time since the consecration of the Cemetery ; of which 
138, averaging 318 feet each, have been sold. 

During the season also have been sold 130 graves in the Field 
of Machpelah. 

The lots have been excavated, graded, and finished by the set- 
ting of stone posts and sodding, as fast as was requisite to meet 
the wants of purchasers. 

In addition to the preparation of these lots, 156 graves in the 
Field of Machpelah have been trenched and finished, which are 
yet unsold. 

Many of the Avenues and Paths in the Cemetery have been 
extended, in the same thorough manner as mentioned in our last 
Report, by removing the loam, which is used in grading the lots, 
and fining the excavations with stones and covering with gravel. 

Forest Hills Avenue has been greatly improved the last season 
by altering the grade, so that the ascent to the Egyptian gateway 
is much more easy and pleasant. 

One of the spots in Forest Hills not the least attractive, is Lake 
Hibiscus ; which, during the last year, has been enlarged and im- 
proved by further excavations on the southerly side, and by form- 
ing a small island near its north-western border, called " Spring 
Island." This island takes its name from the fact, that a never 
failing spring of water gushes out in a perpetual stream from the 
top of it, discharging, during the dryest weather of the last sum- 
mer, at the rate of three gallons of water per minute. This sprmg 
is of great importance to the Cemetery, particularly on account of 
the purity of the water and its central location in the grounds 
where so many workmen are- occupied. 

The rich loam which is removed for the enlargement of the lake 
is found of great importance, in preparing the lots and borders for 
the cultivation of grass, flowers and shrubs. 



63 

The small shed, erected at the commencement of operations at 
Forest Hills, for the protection of tools, having become insufficient 
for the purpose, and the grounds under and around the same be- 
ing wanted for the purpose of being finished into lots, the Com- 
missioners the last summer caused the barn, 24 + 22 feet, and 
the shed, 21 + 17 feet, which were situated on land last purchas- 
ed of the late Joel Seaverns, to be removed to a more central 
location ;> and had the same put in good order for the safe keeping 
of tools, for the storage of cement and other materials used in 
constructing tombs, catacombs, &c. This building will also furnish 
a convenient retreat for visitors in the event of sudden showers 
and storms. The need of such a building has long been felt, and 
has been the subject of much thought and conversation bj the 
Superintendent and Commissioners. 

During the last year ten family tombs, and fifty catacombs or 
brick graves, have been constructed in the lots of proprietors. 

Sixty-two lots have been enclosed with iron fences at an aver- 
age cost of about $125 each. 

Thirty-one monuments have been erected, costing from f 100 
to $1800 each. 

For the performance of the labor needful in carrying forward 
these various improvements in the Cemetery, about forty laborers 
have been employed upon an average during the year. 

The whole number of interments during the last year, in private 
lots and in the Field of Machpelah, has amounted to 373. 

The Commissioners have paid, during the year, $5,144 98 of 
the principal of the notes given by the City for the purchase of 
land for the Cemetery ; which, added to the sum of $3,749 69, 
before paid, amounts to $8,894 67. 

The unpaid notes, given by the City for Cemetery grounds, 
amounts to the sum of $28,000.

The Commissioners would remind those proprietors of lots in 
Forest Hills, who have not had their lots numbered, that in the 
fourth section of the Rules and Regulations on the first page of 
their deeds, it is required that each proprietor of a lot " shall 
cause the number thereof to be legibly and permanently marked 
on the premises." The increase in the number of lot holders 
makes it important that there should be a universal compliance 
with the above mentioned rule. The Superintendent has already 
experienced no little inconvenience from the fact, that a large 



Q5 

number of lots are either not numbered at all, or so slightly num- 
bered on a small piece of -wood, that it is easily removed or the 
number obhterated. 

The Commissioners are happy in the evidence that the enter- 
prise entrusted to their hands is growing in the interest and favor 
of the community. It is worthy the interest it awakens. Chris- 
tianity, which strengthens the domestic tie, hallows the place of 
our loved ones' sepulture. It dictates a rational and tender care 
not alone for the spirit which cannot die, but for that "mortal" 
Avhich " shall put on immortality." And though our resurrection 
may be alike glorious from amidst the sterile and neglected, or the 
tastefully ornamented place of burial, yet the loveliness of the 
latter is not without its moral, and its soothing suggestive power 
to the living, while the former is gloomy and repulsive. 

For the improvements and embellishments which already so 
highly distinguish Forest Hills, the Commissioners cannot too 
strongly express their indebtedness to the taste and judgment and 
untiring assiduity of their Superintendent, Mr. Brims. Their 
grateful acknowledgments are due also to J. W. Dudley, City 
Treasurer, and to J. W. Tucker, City Clerk, for the faithful dis- 
charge of their respective duties, thus greatly facihtating the plans 
and endeavors of the Commissioners.

REPORT 



eiEF ElllER OF THE FIRE DEPIRWI. 



RoxBUKY, Feb. 1, 1854. 

To the Honorable the Mayor a7id Aldermeji, and Common 
Council. 

Gentlemen : — Agreeable to the requirements of the Fire Or- 
dinance, I herewith present my Annual Report of the state and 
condition of the Engine-houses, Engines and Apparatus, with a 
list of the officers and members attached to the Fire Department, 
with their ages and residences, the number of Reservoirs, their 
location and condition ; also the number of Fires and Alarms 
within the Citj from February 1st, 1853, to February 1st, 1854, 
with the amount of Loss and Insurance. 

The Department consists of 5 Engineers and 192 Firemen ; 
there are 5 Engines and 6 Hose Carriages, 1 Hook and Ladder 
Carriage, 134 feet of Suction Hose, 3,450 feet of Leading Hose. 

The Department has been called out the past year 81 times, 
from the following causes : — fires, 26 times ; false alarms, 11 
times ; bursting of camphene lamps, 2 times ; burning of chimneys, 
3 times ; ringing of factory bells, 8 times ; alarms originating out 
of the City, 31 times. The Loss by Fire amounts to $58,340 ; 
the Insurance on the same to $49,800. 

The Engine-houses, Engines and Fire Apparatus generally, are 
in good condition, Avith the exception of the Hook and Ladder 
Carriage and Ladders. The Carriage, I believe, was built in 
1829, and has well served the purpose for which it was designed ; 



87 

but in consequence of the increased number of high buildings in 
the Citj, the Department are often subjected to great incon- 
venience for the want of proper ladders. I recommend that the 
present Carriage be sold as soon as opportunity offers, and a new 
one purchased, with suitable ladders. 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. S. PAEKER, Chief Engineer. 



In Boakd of Aldekmen, Feb. 27, 1854. 

Referred to the Committee on Accounts, with instructions to print such 
parts of the Report and accompanying papers as they deem expedient. 
Sent down for concurrence. 

JOSEPH W. TUCKER, City Clerk. 

In Common Council, March 6, 1854. 

Concurred. 

JOSHUA SEAVER, Clerk.
