wants of the prisoners and the calls from citizens and persons 
applying for lodging ; and although they are permitted to retire 
and get what sleep and rest they can, I am fully satisfied that it 
is imposing a burdensome duty upon them, as they are liable to 
be disturbed several times during the night, thus rendering them 
unfit, oftentimes, for the duties of the following day, and I would 
respectfully recommend that they be reheved of that duty, either 
by the appointment of an additional Night Watchman, or by 
making it the duty of the officer having charge of the lockup dur- 
ing the day to perform the duties during the night that are now 
performed by the Day Pohce, with such additional compensation 
as shall be deemed sufficient for the extra duty. 

The duties of a pohce officer are various, and oftentimes ardu- 
ous and perplexing. 

The reported number of arrests is ilo indication of the amount 
of labor performed, as many fam^ily quarrels, among the lower 
class, are settled by aid of the pohce, and many a poor unfortu- 
nate is taken to his. home, and no record made of it that ever 
meets the public eye. 

The desire that has been entertained by a portion of our citi- 
zens, for a long time, of uniforming the police, has at length been 
gratified by the adoption of a uniform by the action of the City 
Government, and the men are thereby very much improved in 
appearance, if not in efficiency. The Department is composed of 
men equal to the duties assigned them, and no reason exists 



51 

why they should not perform those duties with faithfulness and 
fidelity. 

During my short experience as City Marshal, I have found the 
men, generally, ready and willing to assist me in the discharge of 
my own duties, by discharging theirs with promptness and effi- 
ciency. 

There have been, during the past year, 26 committals to the 
school at the Almshouse, for truancy, of which number 20 now 
remain. Truancy, which was at one time a growing evil, seems 
to have received a decided check by the re-establishment of the 
Truant School. 

A good understanding exists between the teachers of the sev- 
eral pubhc schools and the Police Department on this subject, 
and with the dread the children entertain of the school at the 
Almshouse, and the continued efforts of the teachers and officers, 
I think, ere long, truancy will be classed among the things that 
were, and but a small appropriation will be required to support 
the Truant School. 

I regret to say that intemperance continues to be a prevalent 
evil in our midst, notwithstanding the efforts that have been made 
during the past year to suppress the sale of those poisonous drinks 
that are so ruinous to the prosperity of the poorer classes of our 
population, and which is the cause of pnost of the crime and pau- 
perism in our City. Five hundred and fifty persons have been 
arrested during the past year for drunkenness, and, doubtless, as 
many more have either been helped home, or allowed to go with- 
out arrest, by the officers. It is believed that more than one 
hundred places are now supported wholly, or in part, by the sale 
of' intoxicating liquors. In most of these places it is kept out of 
sight, for fear of prosecution. A great many complaints have 
been made and convictions obtained by the State Constabulary, 
the effect of which seems to be to compel the proprietors to move 
their liquors to some more secluded part of the building, where 
none but the initiated are admitted, thus eluding the vigilance of 
the officers and making it very difficult to get evidence to convict. 
I am of the opinion that a well regulated, stringent Hcense law 
would remedy the evil to a much greater extent than the present 



52 

prohibitory laAV, and trust that the wisdom of our legislators will 
soon suggest a method by which the evil may be remedied, and 
enact a law in accordance therewith. 

The City has been remarkably quiet during the past year, 
both as regards crime and fires. With the exception of one cap- 
ital crime, committed last March, our community has been quite 
free from crime of a very aggravated nature. 

The rooms occupied by the Department are in good condition, 
as is also the lockup, and every thing is done by the officer in 
charge that the accommodations will admit of, for the comfort of 
the poor unfortunates that are from time to time confined there, 
either for crime or from necessity, as lodgers. 

The City Government of last year will please accept my thanks 
for the confidence reposed in me, and my thanks are also due the 
members of the Police Department, and all others who have 
assisted me in the discharge of my official duties. 
Respectfully submitted,

City Marshal.

REPORT OF THE PHYSICIAN TO THE ALMS- 
HOUSE. 

RoxBURY, Feb. 1, 1867. 
To the Board of Overseers of fJie Poor : 

Gentlemen — There has been but a limited amount of sickness 
at the Almshouse during the past year — in all, numbering thirty- 
four cases. Of these, the most noticeable have been, three cases 
of Typhoid Fever ; of General Debility, three cases ; of Syphilitic 
Disease, three cases ; of Scabies, six cases ; of Herpes Tonsurans, 
three cases ; one case of Hemiplegia ; one case of Paraplegia ; 
one of Dysentery ; one of Heart Disease ; one of Dropsy, and two 
cases of Pneumonia. 

There have been four deaths — one from Heart Disease, one 
from Dropsy, one from Typhoid Fever, and one from Double 
Pneumonia. 

There has been one birth. 

The sanitary condition of the house is excellent, and it still 
enjoys its very enviable reputation as a home for the destitute. 
Under its present management, nothing seems wanting for the 
comfort and happiness of those within its precincts, and its in- 
mates and the poor of Roxbury in general may well lament any 
change which may hereafter be made in their Almshouse. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE J. ARNOLD, M. D., 

Almshouse Physician. 



SECOND ANNUAL RKrOET 



OF THE 



STEAM FIRE DEPAKTMENT. 



To Ids Honor the Mayor mid City Council : 

Gentlemen — In compliance with the City Ordinance, I here- 
with submit the Second Annual Report of the Steam Fire De- 
partment. The officers and members of our organization have 
promptly attended to the duties required of them, and I am under 
great obligations to the Chairman and the other members of the 
Committee on the Fire Department, for the interest they have 
taken in the afiairs of the Department during the year. 

Notwithstanding the limited supply of water at our command, 
in case of fire, we have the smallest Fire Department of any city 
in the State, with but one exception, and I do not propose to 
recommend to increase it this year, only to have a hose carriage 
to take the place of the hand hose carriage in use by Cochituate 
Co. No. 1, which is too small. The several houses belonging to 
the Department are all in good order, with the exception of the 
one occupied by Cochituate Hose Company. I recommend that a 
new house be built for them this year. 

One Reservoir was built on Heath Street, opposite Heath Place, 
and two hydrants attached to the Cochituate water pipe on Tre- 
mont Street, one near the corner of Tremont and Culvert Street, 
and one opposite Hook's Organ Factory. I recommend that a 
branch of the Cochituate water pipe be laid on East Street, as 
far as George Street, with a suitable number of hydrants, to be 
used in case of fire. The several Engines have been provided 



56 

■with runners, to be used in case of a heavy fall of snow. Twenty- 
five hundred feet of hose was bought the past year, and I recom- 
mend that fifteen hundred feet be got this year. 

The acompanying documents give a full report of the members 
of the Fire Department, condition of the Engines and apparatus, 
list of Hydrants and Reservoirs, and the general condition of the 
Department.

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES MUNROE, 

Chief Mngineer. 



In Board of Aldermen, Feb. 25, 1867. 
Accepted and sent down with instructions to cause the same to be printed 
with the Receipts and Expenditures of the City.

REPORT 

OF THE 

COMMISSIONERS OF FOREST EILLS CEMETERY. 



The Commissioners of Forest Hills Cemetery, in accordance 
with Legislative Enactment, herewith respectfully submit 
their 

NINETEENTH ANNUAL REPORT. 

Labor performed. The amount of labor performed in the 
Cemetery, though somewhat less than the pre\dous year, has 
required sixty-four men, on an average, the whole time to ac- 
complish it. From seventeen hundred feet in length of the 
avenues, the loam has been removed, and the excavation filled 
with stone and covered with gravel. Four hundred feet of 
the paths have been prepared in the same manner. This pro- 
cess of preparing the avenues and paths of our Cemetery, mak- 
ing the drives and walks as perfect as possible, commenced 
early in its history. Since the first year, some portions of them 
have annually been finished in this most thorough manner, thus 
insuring the comfort and the gratification of all who, for any 
cause, in solemn procession or otherwise, may visit our Forest 
Hills. 

Economy will not permit our finishing the avenues and paths 
in this permanent manner as fast as they are opened, or as fast 
as may seem desirable. The materials are not at hand, and 
could not be at once procured without great and really needless 
expense. But as they are produced by the blasting and trench- 
ing necessary in preparing lots, they are used for this purpose. 



62 

Three thousand feet of gutters, also, have been paved on 
those parts of the avenues and paths where most needed, on 
account of their habihty to be guUied by heavy rains. 

Nev^ Avenues and Paths. The following new avenues 
and paths have been opened and named during the year, viz. : — 
Chestnut, Lawn, Birch and Dell Avenues ; and Daphne, Clo- 
ver, Fern, Harebell and Wistaria Paths ; others have been laid 
out and partly made. 

Lots. One hundred and twenty lots have been sold during 
the year. Several others were engaged late in the season, in 
parts of the grounds not then trenched, which were not finished 
in time to be deeded, and, therefore, do not appear in the re- 
ceipts of this report. One hundred lots were finished during 
the last season, and there are on hand, at the present time, 
ninety finished lots unsold, besides many others so far advanced 
that they can be completed early in the spring. 

Field of Manoah. One hundred and forty -four graves 
were sold during the year in the Field of Manoah ; and sufii- 
cient ground has been trenched and prepared for one hundred 
and fourteen graves not yet sold. 

Monuments and Fences. Twenty monuments, besides 
many tablets and headstones have been erected. 

Twenty-one lots have been enclosed Avith granite, three with 
iron, and five with hedges ; and from six lots the iron fences, 
with which they were enclosed, have been removed. 

Interments. The whole number of interments the last 
year, not including those in fi^-ee grounds, was six hundred 
and sixty ; which is less by thirty-five than in the previous 
year, and eighty-eight less than in 1864. 

Tombs. One Catacomb Tomb has been constructed the last 
year by C. W. Cartwright, Esq., with wrought granite front. 
It is the first of the kind in our Cemetery, but we trust others 



63 

will soon follow the example of Mr. Cartwright, by building 
tombs of at least similar interior construction, while the taste 
of the persons erecting them, or of the architect employed, may 
give a large variety to the exterior, thus increasing the beauty 
of the grounds. 

Additions to the Cemetery Grounds. In the early part 
of the year covered by this Report, a piece of land containing 
about three acres was purchased on Canterbury Street, oppo- 
site the southerly end of the Cemetery, and near the point of 
a contemplated Gateway to the Cemetery, for entrance from 
said street. The object of this purchase was to secure a site 
for the buildings now standing on the Cemetery grounds, in 
order to have these grounds free to be used for the purpose for 
which they were originally designed. 

In September last the Commissioners also purchased of Mr. 
A. J. Peters about twenty-one acres of land, bounded westerly 
by Cemetery grounds, and northerly by Forest Hills Avenue. 
From the first opening of the Cemetery, the Commissioners 
have regarded the possession of this parcel of ground as of great 
importance, if not indispensable, to the purposes of the Ceme- 
tery, but it could not sooner have been so economically secured. 
It was essential to the proper laying out and use of a portion of 
the Cemetery grounds adjoining it, and also to secure the con- 
trol of Forest Hills Avenue, as a guaranty to the lot-holders 
against the establishment of any thing unsightly or injurious 
near the main entrance of the grounds ; while it has become 
more and more evident every year that an enlargement of 
the grounds, such as this purchase secures, was highly im- 
portant, in order to meet the future demands of the public 
for lots. 

At the same time, in order to insure the control of both sides 
of Forest Hills Avenue, and also to furnisli a more eligible site 
for the cottage occupied by the Superintendent, which the lay- 
ing out of the Cemetery grounds rendered it necessary to re- 
move, the Commissioners purchased of Mr. Isaac H. Cary, on 
the north side of the avenue, a strip of land containing about 



64 

two and one quarter acres, and measuring not less than seventy- 
five feet in width from the street in any part, and extending 
around to the north-western hne of the Cemetery grounds. 
The cottage has afready been removed to its neAV site. 

These purchases enable the Commissioners to make some 
slight changes in Forest Hills Avenue, which Avill render the 
approach to the Cemetery Gate much more pleasant and 
attractive. 

The whole amount of land now embraced in the Cemetery 
grounds, not including the late purchase on Canterbury Street, 
is one hundred and fifty-six acres. 

The cost of the three parcels of land purchased the past 
year was $27,078.90, all of which has been paid by the Com- 
missioners. The entire cost of Cemetery lands, thus far, is 
$77,293.57. 

Gateway and Fence. Under the direction of the archi- 
tect, C. W. Panter, Esq., the interior of the lodges have been 
finished, with the exception of painting. The space around the 
Gateway, between the lodges, has been flagged, with great care, 
with the best of North River stone, and the whole exterior of 
the Gateway has been careftilly pointed. 

The massive iron gates, for which a contract was concluded 
with J. Warren Tuck & Co., of Boston, have been made and 
hung according to plans furnished by Mr. Panter, and to the 
entire satisfaction of the arcliitect and the Commissioners. We 
are confident that the verdict of an enlightened public taste Avill 
be that they are worthy the place they occupy in this beautiful 
structure. 

The work of erectinsn a fence to enclose the srounds has been 
commenced, and about one hundred feet, extending fi-om the 
north-westerly lodge, have been put up, conforming, in design 
and materials, with the Gateway. 

Retrospect. It is now nineteen years since Forest Hills 
Cemetery was opened for the reception of our] dead. During 
this period thirteen different individuals have been associated, 



65 

for a longer or shorter time, as Commissioners for its supervis- 
ion. Of these, three have retired. Of the six earhest members 
of this Board, one, whose office, by hmitation, novi^ expires, still 
remains, while five sleep, one in a neighboring cemetery, and 
four in these sacred grounds, which their skill and taste adorn- 
ed, and which they thus, with earnest zeal, prepared as the rest- 
ing place of their own and others' dust. Their appropriate 
monument is this Forest Hills Cemetery, which, to so large an 
extent, their hands fashioned. They deemed it a worthy object 
of their effort thus to rob death of the terror with which a neg- 
lected and repulsive grave might invest it, and to spread around 
this silent resting place of the dead, which Christ by his brief 
sojourn in it had blessed, the living, blooming tokens of that 
resurrection of which His own gives assurance, and of that im- 
mortahty to which he has opened the way. It would be 
strange, if, amidst the hfe and bloom and beauty which surround 
and embower these homes of the dead, the mind of the visitor, 
and especially of the stricken, who leave the dust of their loved 
ones enshrined among its sacred beauties, should not be carried 
forward and upward to that home 

" Where naught that blooms shall die," 

and to Him, with new and fresher faith, who said, " I am the 
Resurrection and the Life." » 

In the course of these nineteen years, not numbering those 
laid in the free grounds, eight thousand two hundred and ninety- 
nine have found their long rest in this sacred enclosure, here to 
await the morning of that resurrection. We need not antici- 
pate the record of the nineteen years which shall succeed, in 
order to appreciate the importance of Forest Hills Cemetery, 
or to be impressed with the great moral lesson which its past 
crowding record teaches.

RoxBURY, Feb. 20, 1867.

MEMORANDA FOR PROPRIETORS. 

The Records of Deeds are kept in the City Hall, under the direction of 
the City Clerk, and are the only evidence of the title of a Proprietor recog- 
nized by the Commissioners ; consequently, when a person receives a lot by 
transfer from a Proprietor, he should immediately send his deed at once to 
the City Clerk's office for record. 

Care of Lots. A book is kept at the Superintendent's office at the Cem- 
etery, in which are entered all orders for the care of lots. Proprietors 
should be particular to specify, what care they desire to be devoted to their 
lots, and it is requested that all orders given should be in writing. 

Flowers. Proprietors in want of flowers to beautify their lots will find 
them at the Cemetery by calling ou Anthony McLaren, the gardener, with 
whom they can settle for the same. 

Interments. For opening grave, making and recording interment, $4. 
For opening grave, making and recording interment, for child under ten 
years, $3. For opening tomb, making interment and record, from $4 to S5. 
For grave in "Field of Manoah," interment, record and stone No., ^16. 
For deposit in Receiving Tomb, $15 ; (of which a part will be refunded in 
case of removal to any part of the Cemetery within sixty days.) For mak- 
ing a brick grave, interment and record, $20. 

The above sums are all payable at or before the time of interment. 

Undertakers are required to have all orders for interment signed by the 
proprietor, or the proper authorized person, accompanied with the neces- 
sary town or city permit, as the interment cannot be made unless the above 
rule is strictly conformed to. 

It is necessary, where there is so great a liability to make mistakes in 
names and dates for record, that the undertaker should be very particular, 
and require the friends of the deceased to see that ail orders for interment 
are correct. 



CEMETERY NOTICE. 

For the information of those who do not know already, it may be well to 
state, that visitors can take the Dedham train of cars, and stop at the Forest 
Hills station, which leaves them within five minutes' walk of the Cemetery ; 
or they can take the horse cars for Forest Hills, running over Shawmut Av- 
enue every half hour. Any information relative to the Cemetery can be 
obtained of Oliver Moulton, Superintendent, at the grounds ; Joseph 
W. Tucker, City Clerk, City Hall, Roxbury ; or either of the Commis- 
sioners. 

I^° No Proprietor can be admitted to the Cemetery on Sunday unless he 
has a card of admission, which can be obtained of Jos. W. Tucker. Any other 
person who wishes to visit the Cemetery on Sunday, must obtain a pass.
