The City Debt on the first day of February, 1855, 

as per account of last year, was, . . . $209,265 95 

Of this sum there has been paid during the year, 

when falling due, . . . . . 24,500 00

The times when this sum becomes payable, may be seen by re- 
ferring to the schedule of the City Debt, accompanying this 
report. 

By a vote of the City Council, all monies received from the 
sales of land belonging to the City, are appropriated towards the 
reduction of the City Debt and interest. There has been received 
the present year from sales of land the sum of $14,538 26 ; and, 
of this sum, there has been appropriated towards the reduction of 
the City Debt, $8,500, and the balance, except the amount paid 
for interest, now remains in the Treasury. The debt has been in- 
creased for the following purposes, viz. : — 

For Renewal, .... $16,100 00 
" Widening Washington Street, 25,000 00 
" Widening Washington Street, 

corner of Eustis, . . 4,000 00

" Support of Poor, do. do., 2,000 00 

" Contingent Expenses, do. do., 2,000 00 
" School-house, Gore Avenue, 

do. do., . . . 1,000 00 

$70,100 00 

There remains in the Treasury, notes of sundry individuals 
secured by mortgage, of $58,350 98, -which, as they become 
due, -will be appropriated to the liquidation of the City Debt, as 
directed. 

It will be observed, that, in some instances, the City Debt has 
been increased for ordinary expenditures in addition to the ordi- 
nary appropriations. As a general principle, we consider this 
a mistaken policy, though there may be exceptions to this as well 
as all other general rules ; and the increase, in the present case, 
we may very properly regard as an exception, because the public 
necessity and convenience seemed to require the expenditures to 
be made at this time, and a failure to have clone so mi°:ht have 
been otherwise than beneficial to the interests of the community. 
The annual appropriations ought to be sufficient to cover the ordi- 
nary expenses ; and when appropriations are made for specific 
objects, it should be the aim of the government to bring the ex- 
penditures within the limits of the appropriation, and not to exceed 
it. We are aware that this is not possible at all times, nor in all 
cases, yet, as a general thing, we believe it can be clone, if the 
different Boards and Committees making the expenditures should 
insist upon keeping them within these limits. The policy of bor- 
rowing money to meet in part the ordinary expenditures, cannot 
fail to entail upon any town or city adopting it, a train of serious 
evils, which heavy taxes, curtailed expenditures, and reduced 
yearly appropriations, can only remedy. We are happy to say, 
that this policy has not been adopted here only in rare instances, 
and whenever resorted to, it has been for objects for which there 
appeared to be a pressing public necessity to have accomplished, 
and a postponement of which would not have been consistent with 



9 

the principles of true economy, or -with the best interests of the 
City. 

Upon the subject of widening a portion of Washington Street, — 
(which cannot be considered as an ordinary expenditure,) — to a 
uniform width of 60 feet, agreeably to the line established in 
1852, it was thought to be for the interests of the City to make 
this long desired improvement at once, rather than to take the 
land for the highway as fast as the old buildings should be re- 
moved to make way for new ones. By doing this work at once, 
a greater uniformity in the street could be obtained, and there 
can be but little doubt that in an economical point of view the in- 
terests of the City have been better subserved, than to have 
waited for the gradual removal or farther decay of the old build- 
ings. The abutters, in some cases, manifested a commendable 
degree of public spirit in aiding this desired improvement, and 
the amounts paid to most of the parties, for land and damages, 
appear to be reasonable. In improvements of this character, if 
persons interested, either as owners or occupants, or both, would 
exercise a liberal spirit, by uniting with the City in carrying for- 
ward improvements of this kind, the interests of both would be 
greatly promoted. 

The cost of this measure, as will be seen by referring to the 
several accounts, has been for 

Widening northerly side, . . . $22,617 57 

" corner of Sumner, . . . 1,631 51 

" corner of Eustis, by award of jury, 3,817 96 

Making a total for this improvement of . $28,067 04 

There are but two claims for land, as yet unsettled, which will 
increase the amount something less than $1,000. 

The ordinary expenses for repairs of Highways, Bridges and 
Sidewalks, amount to $29,080 96, as will be seen by referring 
to the account, which shows an increase over the preceding year 
of $10,472. There has been laid during the year — 



10 

1,756 yards of block stone, for crossings, 

2,845 " brick sidewalk, 
10,355 " round stone pavement, and 
24,867 feet, or nearly five miles, of edge-stones. 

By reference to the report of the Commissioner of Streets, it 
"will be seen upon what streets and sidewalks the appropriation has 
been expended, and the amount upon each ; together with items 
of expenditure for other objects. 

The balance expended for new school-house, Gore Avenue, is 
$6,239 07, which, together with the amount reported last year, 
of $15,165 50, makes the total cost of this building together 
with the land, $21,404 57. 

The cost of the Public Schools, as compared with the year pre- 
ceding, for teachers' salaries, fuel and contingencies, shows an in- 
crease of about $2,100. 

In the account of the Support of Poor, there has been a de- 
crease, compared with that of last year, of some $4,000. But 
there has been a considerable outlay for repairs of Almshouse, 
grading a portion of the grounds upon Highland Street, and im- 
proving the barn and out-buildings. This does not, as it ought, 
appear under the head of a specific appropriation for this purpose^ 
and embraced among the items properly chargeable to this depart- 
ment ; but will be found among the Contingent Expenses and 
Miscellaneous Claims. The cost of these improvements and re- 
pairs has been $2,992 85. An additional expenditure has been 
made, which should also have appeared as a specific appropria- 
tion, — as will be seen upon reference to the Miscellaneous Claims, 
— in removing a large wooden building from the yard to High- 
land Street, and altering the same into a dwelling-house, which 
expenditure was deemed necessary in order to provide a suitable 
place, with proper accommodations, in the vicinity of the City 
Stables, for boarding a portion of the men employed on the high- 
ways. The cost of removal and alterations was $2,120 57. 



11 

In the early part of the year, a new system was established in 
regard to the pay of the Watch and Police, which has been at- 
tended with beneficial results, and which has avoided many of the 
evils hitherto complained of. Until the change, the officers, in 
addition to their pay per diem, received the fees to which by law 
they were entitled from cases brought before the Court. They 
now receive a fixed sum per diem, and all their fees are received 
by the City Marshal and paid into the Treasury. The amounts 
received from this source, and the amount expended for the pay 
of officers and for other expenses, are expressed in the details of 
the account. 

The Police Court was established by act of the Legislature, 
and went into operation May 10th. By the provisions of the 
statute, the Standing Justice is paid a fixed salary, and all the 
fees to which he would be entitled by law are paid by him into the 
Treasury. 

Considerable repairs, amounting to $1,030 03, have been 
made upon the Watch-house and Lock-up, in constructing brick 
cells and other repairs which were very much needed ; and the 
rooms are now more comfortable and in better condition than 
formerly, and more in accordance with the dictates of humanity. 

The expenses of the Fire Department correspond nearly to 
those of the preceding year, except the increase of about $1,400 
for new Hook and Ladder apparatus, outlay on Relief Engine, 
and new hose. The pay of firemen, which was $25, has been 
increased to $30 per year. The report of the Chief Engineer, 
showing the condition of the department, with details of service, is 
appended. 

Two new Reservoirs have been constructed, one at the junction 
of Winthrop and Greenville Streets, and one on Smith, near 
Parker Street, at a cost of $1,593 49. 

It will be observed that the expenditures for Lamps appear 
much larger than usual. The ordinary appropriation was in- 



12 

creased by a loan of $5,000, which became necessary in order to 
enable the Committee to locate posts and lanterns in the public 
streets through which the gas pipes were laid, and also to procure 
fluid lamps and posts in other streets where the gas pipes have 
not been laid down as yet. During the year there have been up- 
wards of 150 cast iron posts set, and many wooden ones, for gas 
lights, and also a large number of wooden ones, for fluid lamps. 
The lanterns have not proved so durable and of such a quality 
as might have been desired, and have already required consider- 
able repairs, and will require still more to make them serviceable. 
The details of expenditures will be found under the appropriate 
head. 

The Liquor Agency has cost $1,269 81. The receipts have 
been $631 91, showing a loss of $627 90 for the year. This 
amount may be reduced somewhat by deducting the value of the 
liquors on hand, of which the Committee can form no opinion. 
The agency has been abolished, and provision will doubtless be 
made to answer the requirements of the law in another form. 

The proceeds of sales of lots or rights of burial in the Cemetery 
at Forest Hills, are yearly paid into the City Treasury, and kept 
separate from any other funds of the City, and subject to the 
order of the Commissioners. The proceeds are devoted to the 
liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land, and 
for improving and embellishing the grounds, as provided by act 
of the Legislature. For full details respecting the condition of 
the Cemetery, the sales of lots the past year, and other subjects 
connected therewith, reference may be made to the Annual Re- 
port of the Commissioners, appended. 
The amount received into the Treasury from Feb- 
ruary 1, 1855, to Feb. 1, 1856, from sundry 
persons, for sales and grading lots, including 

balance on hand, was $27,825 43 

And the amount paid upon the drafts or orders of 

the Commissioners for the same period, was . 26,619 30 

Leaving a balance in the Treasury, Feb. 1, 1856, of $1,206 13 



13 



The Cemetery Debt, Feb. 1, 1854, was 

Of which there has been paid during the year, 

Reducing; the debt to, 



$26,000 00 
2,000 00 

$24,000 00

appropriations of the previous year, and the appropriations and 
transfers of 1855 ; the details of the expenditures under their

provision is made for the payment of the same by the proceeds of the sale of lots in the 
grounds, as will be seen by the following section from the Act obtained from the Leg- 
islature : — 

Section 4. "The proceeds of sales of lots or rights of bur-ial 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 de- 
voted to the liquidation of the debt incurred in the purchase of the land for said Ceme- 
tery, and to the improvement and embellishment thereof, as aforesaid, under the direc- 
tion 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."

REPORT 



OF THE 



OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



The Overseers of the Poor of the City of Roxbury, respectfully 
submit their Annual Report for the past current year. 

The Receipts for the Support of Poor from February 1st, 1855, 
to February 1st, 1856, were as follows: 

Balance undrawn Feb. 1, 1855, . . $126 OT 

Transferred from Salaries of School 

Teachers for 1854-55, .... 2 24 

To cash received of Ezra Young for ar- 
ticles sold, 253 50 

To cash received of Commonwealth for 

Pauper Account, ■ . 679 85 

To cash received of other towns and in- 
dividuals for support of Paupers, . 288 11 

To cash received by sales of Farming 

Utensils, and at auction, .... 619 27 

To cash received of Aaron D. Weld for 

Pigs, 798 54 

Appropriation, 3,000 00 

Loans authorized, 3,000 00 

$8,767 58 

Expenditures. 

For support of Poor, 7,183 19 

For balance undrawn, Feb. 1, 1856, . 1,584 39 

$8,767 58 



71 

It may be proper to remark, that Brook Farm having been 
sold, the paupers were removed from that locality to the Highland 
street Almshouse, early in April last. The accommodations at 
the Highland street Almshouse have been improved during the 
year, and adapted to the change which it was necessary to make. 
The out-buildings have been put in good condition, and it is pro- 
bable that no further considerable expense for improvements or 
repairs will be required for years. The poor are well provided 
for, and every convenience and accommodation in sickness or in 
health are furnished to that unfortunate class, which is called 
for by a spirit of kindness and humanity, and consistent with an 
economical expenditure of the public moneys. For the support 
of the Poor, for the ensuing year, the Board would recommend an 
appropriation of five thousand dollars. 

The Reports of the Superintendent and Physician of the Alms- 
house, furnishing the details connected with their particular 
departments, accompany this Report, and it is gratifying to be able 
to state, that those officers have discharged their responsible 
duties throughout the year, with their accustomed fidelity and 
ability. 

JOHN S. SLEEPER, 

Chairman of Overseers of Poor. 



In Board of Aldermen, March 10, 1856. 

Report read, accepted, and referred with the accompany papers to the

REPORT 



PHYSICIAN TO THE ALMSHOUSE 



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

Gentlemen, — In preparing this Report, I have omitted the 
table of classification of diseases usually accompanying similar 
Reports in years past. During the year from Feb. 1st, 1855, to 
Jan. 31st, 1856, there have been eight deaths in the house; 
Died with consumption, four ; small pox, two ; disease of the 
heart, one ; asphyxia, one. There have been three births in the 
house during the year. 

In the early part of the season there were eight cases of small 
pox and varioloid ; two of the inmates of the house had vario- 
loid, and six persons were admitted to the pest house with small 
pox, two of whom died, and four recovered. We have not had 
any ship fever in the house this year, nor but one case of typhoid 
fever, that is now in the house and under treatment, though the 
most of the inmates now in the house have been under medical 
treatment at some time during the year. 

The three persons under treatment at the commencement of 
the year have since died with consumption. 

There have been a number of State paupers admitted to the 
house sick, who received medical attendance until they were 
sufficiently recovered to be carried to Bridgewater. The expense 
for the same has been charged to the State. 

There is at the present time, a number of persons in the House 
in a very helpless and infirm condition, which requires some at- 
tention from the physician, and the usual and unwearied care and 



75 

nursing which has universally been given by the Superintendent 
and his wife to each and every inmate to improve and make their 
condition more comfortable and happy. 

Many of the number now in the house are well known to you 
as well as to many of our citizens, and are placed here only from 
force of circumstances, which have compelled them to withdraw 
from the society of those with whom they have for many years 
associated, and have sought the Almshouse as an abiding place 
for the remainder of their days. 

Respectfully submitted, 

By your obedient servant, 

Ira Allen, M. D. 

Physician to the Almshouse.

REPORT 

OF THE 

COMMISSIONERS 



or 



FOREST HILLS CEMETERY. 



In conformity to the fifth section of " An Act relative to a Public 
Cemetery in the City of Roxbury," the Commissioners respect- 
fully submit their 

EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT. 

It is but a few years since attention began to be directed to the 
beautifying of burial places. The highest aim formerly seemed 
to be to find a spot where the dust of the departed might slumber 
undisturbed and forgotten till its final renovation. And it mat- 
tered not, apparently, how dreary or even disgusting the recep- 
tacle for the dead might be. As if to add to the repulsiveness of 
death, or rather, perhaps, as if it might seem to detract from a 
proper regard for the immortal in man, to care for the mortal, no 
spot could be found more bleak and barren, more uncared for by 
taste and uninviting to the footsteps of the living, than that which 
should entomb the decaying remains of departed friends. It might 
be, in the city, the dark, damp, sepulchral vault, which lingering 
affection would never choose to visit, to search out among its 
crowded and mouldy niches the slumbering remains of its object, 
and where no flower or shrub by its annual resuscitation should 
betoken a coming resurrection. Or if in the country, some un- 



86 

productive, treeless waste was selected, which, enclosed with a 
rude fence, was made the crowded and unattractive receptacle 
of the multiplying dead of a given locality ; where the most that 
stricken affection was permitted to do, was to erect some modest 
slab with its inscribed testimonial of love, or perhaps to plant a 
solitary shrub or flower as the frail token of remembrance ; and 
there, overgrown with grass and weeds, repulsive in all its exterior, 
and unpathed saA^e as the repeated tread of some solitary survivor 
had marked its way among forgotten mounds to the resting place 
of some one more loved than the rest ; — there, teeming with the 
evidences of neglect and forge tfulness, was the spot towards which 
all eyes looked as " the house appointed for all the living." 

It is a matter of sincere rejoicing, that in the progress of im- 
provement in other respects, the cemetery has not been overlooked. 
And the amount of skill and taste employed in beautifying these 
places, which are to embosom all that is mortal of our households, 
bespeaks not less a true and rational refinement, than a sincere and 
Christian affection. The Forest Hills Cemetery is a witness 
among others, of the advance in public sentiment on this subject, 
and not less a token of the refinement of social affection in the 
community which appreciates and demands a place so lovely and 
attractive for the burial of the departed. Its proximity to the 
cities of Roxbury and Boston, being only three miles from the line 
dividing the two places, and the avenues leading to it being skirted 
with some of the richest scenery in the neighborhood, thus furn- 
ishing a most delightful ride, attract annually increasing numbers 
of visitors to enjoy its beauties. And its ease of access either by 
carriage or by the Boston and Providence rail-road, especially to 
the southerly part of Boston, where so many are now choosing 
their place of residence, make it a most convenient, as well as 
inviting place for the burial of their departing friends. 

In the progress of the work of beautifying the grounds of the 
Cemetery and preparing them for occupancy, 136 lots have been 
graded and finished with stone posts, and the borders planted with 
trees and shrubs, during the last year. 

One hundred and twenty-five lots have been sold during the 
same period, averaging 814| square feet each. 

One hundred and forty graves in the Field of Machpelah have 
been sold. 

Three family tombs have been constructed during the year and 
filled with stone shelves ; two of which have been sold. 

Lake Hibiscis has been enlarged during; the last summer 
16,000, square feet, by further excavations ; a substantial wall 
built around the part newly excavated, and the border graded and 



87 

sodded out to the avenue. The increased attraction around this 
spot has led nearly all visitors at the Cemetery to pass by it, and 
many of them, whether on foot or in carriages, to halt and linger 
awhile to enjoy its beauties. In consequence of this, it has been 
found expedient to widen the avenues on the west and north sides 
from sixteen to twenty feet. 

The loam has been removed from 1670 feet of avenues, and 
from 340 feet of paths, which have been relaid with stone and 
gravel in the same thorough manner as heretofore. 

In order to secure the distinct and permanent numbering of the 
Cemetery lots, the Commissioners have procured a quantity of 
slate-stones of uniform size, with the number legibly engraved upon 
them, and have had them set in 1000 lots. The expense thus in- 
curred has amounted to $500. 

Three hundred graves in the Field of Machpelah, have been 
numbered in the same manner, at an expense of $150. 

It having become necessary to improve for lots the grounds 
heretofore occupied by the nursery, the trees and shrubs have been 
removed to the southern portion of the Cemetery lands. 

In addition to lots sold the past year, there are now on hand 
thirty-five lots which are finished and ready for sale, towards sup- 
plying the future demand. Seventy-five other lots have been 
trenched, which will be sodded and finished as early as the season 
will permit. 

One hundred graves in the Field of Macphelah have also been 
finished to meet the demand the ensuing year. 

The Commissioners having an opportunity to purchase of the 
Town of West Roxbury a quantity of loam, where a road was to 
be graded, and having constant occasion for it in the finishing of 
their lots, have made the purchase, and caused the same to be 
removed and put in heaps, ready for use as it may be needed. 

Thirty-five monuments, beside monumental scrolls and slabs, 
have been erected the last year at a cost of from $300 to $600 
each. 

Fifty-five lots have been enclosed with iron fences, and one lot 
with Castleton slate. 

The number of interments the last year in private lots and in 
the Field of Macphelah was 435, which is greater by seventy than 
the preceding year. 

For several years the Commissioners, by permission of the 
Town of West Roxbury, have taken gravel from Bourne Street 
for use in the avenues and paths of the Cemetery ; the grading 
of the street being regarded by the town as sufficient compensa- 
tion for the gravel removed. This source of supply having been 



88 

exhausted, and a favorable opportunity occurring of securing the 
gravel and sand in constant requisition, the Commissioners pur- 
chased a gravel hill, embracing a little more than two acres, and 
have caused a deed of the same to be made to the City of Rox- 
bury ; for which they paid the sum of $637 50.

During the year the debt incurred in the purchase of Cemetery 
lands has been reduced by the payment of $2,000 ; leaving a 
balance of $24,000 yet unpaid. 

The Commissioners wish to call the attention of lot owners to 
another item of expenditure which is making large demands upon 
them each successive year. This arises from the labor necessary 
to keep in order the private lots of the Cemetery. This has been 
done the last year at an estimated cost of $2,000. Each owner 
of a lot has a common interest with the others that all be kept in 
neat and attractive order. And there is no feature of Forest 
Hills Cemetery, which has occasioned more universal admiration 
on the part of visitors, or a higher satisfaction in the bosoms of 
lot holders, than the high degree of neatness and order and taste- 
ful embellishment which every where meets the eye. 

No one would willingly see this beautiful feature marred, or 
less lovely than now. But as private lots are multiplied, the ex- 
pense of keeping them in order must necessarily increase. The 
true policy would doubtless have been for each purchaser of a lot 
to make a deposit at the time of purchase of an amount, the inter- 
est of which, annually applied, should be sufficient for needful 
repairs and the perpetual embellishment of his lot. To meet this 
necessity, the City of Roxbury in 1852 secured the passage of an 
Act by the State Legislature, authorizing the Commissioners to 
hold any grant or donation or bequest of property, upon trust, 
for this end. This Act will be found in connection with this 
Report ; and it is hoped that this allusion to it may be sufficient 
to secure the cooperation of all the lot holders for the accom- 
plishment of an object so essential to the permanent beauty and 
attractiveness of this " garden of graves." 

As the members of our households are gathered, one by one, 
to their last sleep, and each one prepares for himself a bed in that 
spot where living trees and blooming flowers speak so significantly 
to the living of peace and hope, it can hardly fail to be a source 
of high gratification to know that a sure provision has been made 
for the perpetuation of its quiet loveliness in all future time. 

The Commissioners have occasion, as in past years, to make 
mention of their indebtedness to Mr. Brims, their industrious and 
efficient Superintendent, for the taste and skill which have con- 
tributed so largely towards developing the beauties of Forest 
Hills ; and also to J. W. Dudley, City Treasurer, and J. W. 
Tucker, City Clerk, the prompt discharge of whose respective 
duties has tended to facilitate the designs of the Commissioners. 

In closing their Report, the Commissioners would express the 
gratification which they feel in the progress already made in the 
8* 



90 

work entrusted to their supervision. ' There is a chastened satis- 
faction in a work which robs the grave even externally of its 
gloom, and which thus points the living, by significant tokens, to 
Him who himself said, " I am the resurrection and the 

LIFE."

AN ACT 

In addition to An Act relating to a Public Cemetery in the City of 

Roxbury. 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives, in Gene- 
ral 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, pursuant to an act approved March 24, 1848, 
are authorized to take and hold any grant, donation or bequest of prop- 
erty, upon trust, to apply the same, or the income thereof, for the im- 
provement 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, ac- 
cording to the terms of such grant, donation or bequest. And whenever 
any such grant, donation or bequest, or any deposit shall he made by 
the proprietor of any lot in said cemetery, for the annual repair, preser- 
vation or embellishment of such lot and the erections thereon, the said 
commissioners may give to such proprietor, or his representative, an 
agreement or obligation, in such form and upon such terms and condi- 
tions as they may establish, binding themselves and their successors to 
preserve and keep in repair said lot forever, or for such period as may 
be agreed upon. 

Sect. 2. Any sums of money, so received by said commissioners, 
shall be invested by the city treasurer of Roxbury, under the direction 
of said commissioners, in public stocks or mortgages of real estate, and 
all such property, received under the provisions of the foregoing section 
(unless other provision is made by the terms of any such grant, dona- 
tion or bequest), shall be made under the charge of said city treasurer, 
hut shall always remain separate from and independent of any other 
moneys or property belonging to the city of Roxbury, and free from the 
control of the city council. And the income of such fund, or funds, 
shall be received by said treasurer, subject to the order of said commis- 
sioners, and shall be appropriated by them in such manner as shall in 
their opinion, best promote the purposes for which said grants, donations, 
bequests or deposits are made. 

Sect. 3. The city of Roxbury shall be responsible for the good faith 
of said commissioners, and the treasurer of said city, in the execution of 
any trust which they may assume pursuant to the foregoing provisions. 
But said commissioners shall not be liable to make any renewal or 
reconstruction of any monument, or other erection on any lots in said 
cemetery, unless such liability shall be expressed in the agreement given 
by them as aforesaid, or in the terms and conditions under which they 
accept any grant, donation or bequest. 

Sect. 4. This act shall be void, unless the city council of Roxbury 
(shall accept the same, at a meeting of said council called for that pur- 
pose, within thirty days after its passage. 

Sect. 5. This act shall take effect from and after its passage. [Passed 

Feb. 25, 1852. r Accepted by the City Council, March 8. 1852.]
