This well-known and long established Periodical will un- 
dergo some important changes on the commencement of the 
52d volume in February, 1855. It will be issued weekly, as 
heretofore, from the office of Publication, over 184 
■Washiiigtoii Street, Boston, but in its editorial 
management, the chief duties and responsibilities will de- 
Tolve upon two physicians of the city, who have been selected 
as fully qualified by their literary tastes and scientific at- 
tainments to make the Journal acceptable to the profession 
generally. Aid has also been promised from many of the 
leading physicians of Boston, and it will continue to receive 
contributions from eminent members of the profession in 
every part of the country. Its contents, though mainly of 
a practical character, are intended to be sufficiently varied to 
make its weekly visits interesting as well as useful to the 
medical practitioner. 

The price is THREE dollars a year, payable in advance. 
Orders by mail, with subscription money enclosed, may be 
addressed, as above, to

WHEELER & WILSON'S 

FAMILY SEWING MACHINES, 




These improved Machines are rapidly coming into general favor, 
and acknowledged to be the ONLY machines adapted to family 
use. The beauty and durability of their stitching are unrivalled, 
working equally on fine cambric, quilting and heavy broadcloth. 
The rapid and noiseless operation of these machines is an advan- 
tage possessed by no other, while their simplicity of construction 
renders them easier of use, besides being less liable to get out of 
repair,— an objection reasonably urged against all other machines. 
To Families, Shirtmakers, Tailors, Milliners, &c., one of these ma- 
chines is invaluable. Specimens of work furnished at any time 
where the machines are in operation, and for sale, at

FOR THE YEAR 1855. 




SERIAL NUMBER, EIGHTY-NINE. 



BOSTON: 

PUBLISHED ANNUALLY BY GEORGE ADAMS, 

NO. 91 WASHINGTON STREET. 



PEEEACE. 

The liberal patronage extended to the Massachusetts Eegister, has induced the 
publisher to use extra exertions to perfect it in every department, and to make 
it, as its name imports, a comjjlete index to the government and institutions of the 
State. 

For a comprehensive view of the various subjects mentioned in this, the eighty- 
ninth number of the Eegister, we refer the reader to the copious list of contents 
on the next succeeding pages. 

The work is usually issued in the month of January, or soon after the 
organization of the Legislature, of which body a list of names is given, together 
with the several State officers and legislative committees. 

Our thanks are due to our correspondents for their prompt and valuable 
assistance, and also to our patrons throughout the State for their generous 
encouragement. 

The attention of inventors, mechanics and manufacturers is invited to the work 
as a valuable medium for giving public notice of their various enterprises. All 
articles or notices intended for the next number should be addressed to the 
publisher on or before the 1st of December, 1855.

governor by appointment, with the advice and 
consent of the council. The person so chosen, 
or appointed, duly qualified in other respects,

offices aforesaid, shall neglect, ibr the space of 
ten days after he could otherwise enter upon his 
duties, to qualify himself in all respects to enter

Senators : — Succeeding as I do the many 
eminent gentlemen of legal and legislative at- 
tainments who have heretofore filled the office 
to which I am now elected, I may well mis- 
trust my own ability to discharge, in a satis- 
factory manner, the duties which will devolve 
upon the Chair. Encouraged, however, by 
your confidence, to believe that I shall receive 
your cooperation in my endeavors, and your 
indulgence for whatever may appear my defi- 
ciencies, I shall enter upon the duties with a 
determined purpose to exert my best efforts 
to sustain your confidence by acts of strict 
impartiality and devotedness to the business 
which may from time to time come before the 
Senate. 

In accepting as I now do this distinguished 
honor which you have conferred upon me, I 
tender you my sincere acknowledgments, 
hoping and believing that our intercourse as 
Senators may be characterized by a spirit of 
mutual forbearance and friendly feeling, that 
at the close of our official labors our reflec- 
tions may be of the most pleasant nature.

the kindness which has elevated me to this 
position, to excuse me, this morning, in the 
present state of my voice and health, from 
any extended acknowledgment of the honor 
which you have conferred upon me. I can 
merely thank you. I can promise you only 
my best efforts to perform the duties of the 
place, and so long as you discover that I am 
endeavoring to perform its duties with propri- 
ety and impartiality, I know, gentlemen, that I 
shall have the support and the co-operation of 



every member of the House, and that we shall 
all of us endeavor to transact the business we 
were sent here to perform, so that we may 
discharge ourselves of the responsibilities of 
our present offices at the earliest possible mo-

who was born at Leicester, on the fourteenth 
of February, 1800, and whose life may thus 
this day be measured in even years. His first 
legislative year was 1825. The Lieutenant 
Governor was born at Lenox, Oct. 23, 1799; 
his first legislative year was 1841. 

It is worthy of note that a great number of 
the places of residence are different from the 
places of birth. Of the Boston delegation, con- 
sisting of five members in the Senate, but one 
was born in Boston ; and of the Boston delega- 
tion in the House, consisting of forty-four mem- 
bers, but eight were born in Boston ; seven 
were born in the State of New Hampshire, 
four in the State of Maine, one in England, 
and twenty-four out of Boston, in various part^ 
of Massachusetts. 

The oldest member of the House appears to 
be Mr. Benjamin Allen, representative from 



Ashby, who was born in Lincoln, Nov. 4,1777; 
he is a farmer, and this is his first year in the 
legislature.

MASSACHDSETTS MILITIA, 

[Corrected in November, 1854.] 

The Militia of Massachusetts is divided into two classes, the active and enrolled ; the 
latter consists of all " able-bodied white male citizens of the age of eighteen years, and 
under that of forty-five, excepting persons enlisted into volunteer companies, and persons 
exempted by law, or incapacitated by physical and other causes." [See sec. 5, Militia 
Law.] The whole number enrolled in 1854, as appears from the Keturns of Assessors 
of cities and towns, (whose duty it is to make such returns), is 135,243, being an increase 
of 1,912 over last year. 

The Active Militia consists of Volunteers, who are paid a per diem allowance when on 
duty, amounting, in the whole, to S9 per annum, each man of the Artillery and In- 
fantry, and $18 each for Cavalry. They consist, by the Returns of 1854, of about 
7000 men. These are organized into three Divisions and six Brigades, embracing two 
Divisionary Corps of Cadets, one Company of Light Artillery, five Companies of Cav- 
alry, four Regiments, and four Companies " annexed" of Artillery, and ten Regiments 
and two Battalions of Light Infantry, and two Battalions of Riflemen. 

The first division is made up of Militia in Suffolk, Norfolk, Plymouth, Bristol, Barns- 
table, Nantucket, and Dukes counties ; the second, of Militia in Middlesex and Essex; 
the third, of Militia in Worcester, Hampshire, Hampden, Franklin, Berkshire.

BANKS. 

On the 1st of January, 1854, there were in Massachusetts, 152 banks, with an author- 
ized capital of about $53,500,000. Of these, 37 were in Boston, having about S31,500, 
000 capital, and 115 in other parts of the State, with a capital of nearly $22,000,000. 

During the session of 1854, the Legislature granted an increase of capital to 12 Boston 
banks, amounting to $2,800,000, and to 24 other banks, amounting to $1,840,000. 

They also chartered one bank in Boston, with a capital of $400,000, and 19 in other 
parts of the State, with an aggregate ea3)ital of $2,100,000. 

Since that time, one bank, the Cochituate, in Boston, has failed, leaving the number in 
Boston the same as before. 

From the report of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, it appears that the condition of 
the Massachusetts banks on the 12th August, 1854, was, as follows: 

Due from 153 banks that were then in operation ; capital stock paid in, $54,492,660 ; 
bills in circulation, $24,803,758; net profits on hand, $6,335,030.13; balances 
due to other banks, $6,930,098.95; cash deposited, including all sums whatsoever due 
from the banks not bearing interest, their bills in circulation, profits and balances due 
to other banks excepted, $18,783,281.11; cash deposited, bearing interest, $563,- 
313.96. 

The resources of the same 153 banks were : specie in their banking-bouses, $3,828,402.- 
88 ; real estate, $1,186,509.15 ; bills of other banks in New England, $5,325,594.79 ; 
balances due from other banks, $8,225, 682.30 ; debts due, including notes, bills of ex- 
change, and all stocks and funded debts of every description, excepting the balances due 
from other banks, $93,341,953.28. 

The amount of the semiannual dividends paid in April, 1854, was $2,114,627, and the 
amount of reserved profits on hand at that time, was $3,954,335.19.

RAILROADS. 

Previous to January 1, 1854, there had been Acts of Incorporation granted to sixty 
three Railroads in Massachusetts, with an aggregate capital of about sixty millions of dol- 
lars. Sixty-two of these roads were in operation, and their construction had cost over 
sixty-one millions. They had an aggregate length of track of fourteen hundred miles ; of 
double track, three hundred miles; and of branches, over one hundred miles. The 
greatest speed adopted by passenger trains on any of these roads was thirty miles per 
hour, but the usual speed was about twenty-three miles. The total expense of working 
these roads for the year 1853 was some five millions of dollars ; their net earnings for 
the same time, three and one-half millions ; and amount of dividends declared, two and 
one-half millions. 

One hundred and two persons were injured by accidents ; sixty-four fatally. 

At the session of the General Court in 1854, seven other railroads were incorporated, 
their authorized capitals amounting to nearly one million dollars. An Act was passed 
authorizing a loan of the State credit, to the amount of two million dollars, to enable the 
Troy and Greenfield Railroad Company to construct the Hoosac Tunnel. By another 
Act, the Old Colony and Fall River Railroads were granted leave to unite, which they 
have since done. For other legislation in 1854 with regard to Railroads, see abstract of 
No. 2 on page 17 of this book. No. 2^ on page 19,- No. 286 on page 29, No. 354 on

EDUCATION IN MASSACHUSETTS. 

PREPARED BY WILLIAM L. GAGE, PRINCIPAL OF TUE TATJNTON HIGH SCHOOL. 

The importance of a pystem of public instruction ia raising up men capable of 
governing ihenjifolves and others, early forced itself upon the minds of our Puritan 
forefathers. 

When the church was finished, the school-hcuse was begun; and by this prompt 
commencement, and steady sustaining of the same alacrity, education has become what it 
is in Massachusetts, and our system of public schools the pet of the Commonwealth. 
Our State has become in this matter the guiding star of our Republic ; from it streams 
forth a light which is seen North and South, East and West, and which does much to 
enlighten the nation. 

Massachusetts claims great excellence for her schools. The people are interested in 
them, and in the working of our school system. The teachers are generally of a high 
order of men and women, in mind, in character, and in intelligence. The scholars are 
stimulated to learn by the general diffusion of information around them, and tbey readily 
see that the pursuits of the school-room have a direct and important bearing on practical 
life. The houses are spacious, commodious, and in some cases elegant. 

To the introduction of the graded system in our leading towns, and to the efficient 
organization whii^h our cities have adopted, is owing in a great degree the excellence of 
our schools. This system is of recent introduction among us, but even now it has greatly 
modified former educational institutions. 

By the continued appe^ils of Hon. Horace Mann, and by his unfailing energy as Sec- 
retary of the Board of Education, the graded system was introduced amongst us, and his 
efforts have been zealously seconded by his able successor. This system has to a great 
extent sucoctded in undermining the Academies, substituting the more unpretending but 
not less (.'ffective High Schools in their stead, and introducing a system of rudimentary 
instruction far more thorough than that formerly in vogue. In our leading cities, the 
system secius to have reached a degree of real excellence. In these, we have the follow- 
ing gradations ; the Alphabet School, the Primary, Intermediate, Grammar and High 
School. Here the time can be passed from infancy to early manhood and womanhood, 
and here can all those studies be pursued in their due order, and with due care, which 
are to fit the child for life. 

In some of our large towns the graded system has not been adopted in its most elabo- 
rated form. In most of these, the High School has been established ; and its numbers 
are supplied from the district schools. In all, however, the tendency is towards a thor- 
ough grade ; and this de/u-able end will be attained by the most of our large towns and 
cities in a few years. By the politeness of Rev. Dr. Scars, the Secretary of the Board 
of Education, we are enabled to present to our readers the names of the towns in Massa- 
chusetts which sustain High Schools. They are the following :

Boston, which bears off the palm of enterprise, maintains the supremacy in education 
also. Her great advantages for a thorough classification of pupils, her high appreciation 
of the value of educated labor, and her consequent efforts to engage teachers of tried 



EDUCATION IN MASSACHUSETTS. 187 



ability, give her a position in this respect, far higher than that of any other place in -New 
England. And the influence of Boston over education is very great. An intelHgen'b., 
teacher remarked to us not long since, that every three hundred dollars added to the 
salaries of Boston teachers, adds one hundred to those of the teachers of JSTcw Hamp- 
shire. Indeed, as Cuvier could fix the class of any animals by simply noting the form 
of one of its teeth, so would one be able to state with considerable accuracy the distance 
of the larger towns and cities from Boston by ascertaining the amount of their teachers' 
compensation. In Boston the salaries of teachers are not meagre, nor insufBcient for the 
needs of life. Boston has tried the experiment of paying for her instructors salaries 
which are not out of proportion to those which men of trained minds and administrative 
capacity receive in other departments. The experiment has proved eminently successful ; 
and to the fact that her teachers are many of them men of energy and capacity, with 
here and there a scholar, is the excellence of the Boston schools much indebted. 

But we yet think that an unfair comparison is often made between Boston teachers and 
those of the neighboring cities and towns. The unrivalled organization of schools in the 
metropolis gives to instructors there an advantage which cannot be too highly rated ; 
while the general intelligence which pervades it gives even the scholars in the schools a 
bias towards the rapid acquisition of knowledge. We do not make these remarks with 
any desire to detract from the excellence of our Boston teachers ; but in this matter men 
are in danger of awarding that praise to individuals which rightly belongs to a system. 

The salaries of teachers in this State are neither insignificantly small nor attractively 
great. In nearly every town the competent teacher may live in a moderate but comfor- 
table style of life, yet nowhere can he by public instruction, amass wealth. In Boston, 
even, where the salaries of the higher masters seem princely compared with the wages 
which the rural districts reluctantly give, they not unfrequently abandon their profession 
to adventure upon the more rapid acquisition of wealth. The teachers of the State, 
however, with individual exceptions, do not merit large salaries by reason of superior 
education. In this regard, they fall behind their brethren of the clerical, legal and medi- 
cal professions. What is requisite in a teacher is administrative capacity ; if conjoined 
with learning, well ; but if without this foil, its absence is not much desiderated. 

From the last report of the Secretary of the Board of Education in this State, we 
learn that the average salary paid to High School teachers is S8G4. This sum contrasts 
favorably with the salaries of clergymen, the average of which is much lower. But the 
expense of an education which enables a man to enter upon the imparting of knowledge, 
in these schools, the peculiar bent of mind which is found in the successful teacher, 
together with the wearing nature of his employment, render this apportionment of wages 
just. In this last regard, Mr. Wright, the Secretary of State in this Commonwealth, has 
presented some novel statistics. By his returns, the average length of a clergyman's life 
is fifty-six years, while that of the teacher is but a little more than thirty. Indeed, there 
is but one employment specified, if we remember correctly, which is more adverse to 
longevity than that of a teacher. In this view, the comparatively high salaries of the 
masters of our High Schools are abundantly justified. 

We learn also from Dr. Sears's report, that the average of monthly wages given to the 
male teachers of district schools in the State, is thirty-seven dollars, and that of female 
teachers, fifteen. This sum includes the allowance for board. We do not think that 
this hard-working class of our community receive adequate compensation. The district 
school teachers in the State embrace men and women of more real purity, perhaps, than 
is to be found in any other class, with the exception of the clergy. The amount of 
learning which is required in them is very trifling ; yet a clear head and a willing heart 
are indispensable, and these deserve their reward. 

The amount of money paid by the towns of this Commonwealth for the instruction of 
each of its children differs widely in one district from another. The suburbs of Boston 
take the lead, while the small towns on Cape Cod bring up the rear. To Brookline 
belongs the especial honor of heading the list ; Winchester and West Roxbury follow. 
The amount paid by the town of Brookline for the instruction of each pupil in its public 
schools between the ages of five and fifteen years, is upwards of ten dollars annually ; in 
Truro, Dennis, and the more backward towns of the State, the amount does not vary far 
from one dollar and fifty cents. 



188 MASSACHUSETTS REGISTER. 



The number of incorporated Academies is at the present time identical with the number 
of public High Schools. But the inherent faults of these institutions, composed as they 
are, of a continually fluctuating set of pupils, and relying for their support on the popu- 
larity of the instructor, are continually reducing the number. Our High Schools, on the 
contrary, are continually gaining in number and in efSciency. The men who direct them 
stand in the front rank of teachers, being generally young men of trained minds and of 
some accomplishments ; and the continually advancing rates of salary will tend to retain 
these in their posts of usefulness and honor. The private schools of Boston and our 
larger towns and cities have always been in great repute, and justly, as we think. They 
have maintained their rank because they have usually taken to themselves those children 
who enjoy the advantage of home training. But now that our Public Schools are taking 
so high a position, there is no reason that parents should withhold their children from them. 
When the public schools are the resort solely of the children of uneducated foreigners or 
of unworthy parents, then there may be an excuse to the careful father and mother for 
withdrawing the child of their love from temptation and from vice ; but when our schools 
become mixed in character, when there is infused into them much of good, the parent 
who is true to all his trust, will send his son or daughter there, and strive to turn the 
wavering scale. 

The number of Private Schools in the State is large, being no less than seven hun- 
dred and twenty-three, and the number of pupils in them is upwards of eighteen thou- 
sand. Their decrease is to be a matter of time ; their entire estinction is not a matter of 
certainty, but the principle on which they rest is not an American principle, and therefore 
cannot well thrive among us. The teachers which they enlist are often men of fine 
culture, and not unfrcquently friends of general education, yet we cannot but think that 
they arc often tempted to injure the cause of public instruction, and regret that they 
drew off some of the best blood of our schools. 

One of the characteristic features of the educational system of Massachusetts, is the 
associations of teachers for the purpose of mutual improvement and encouragement. The 
American Institute of Instruction, although nominally a national thing, was founded in 
great part by Massachusetts teachers, and owes its prosperity and the interest of its 
meetings, in great measure, to the eiEcient aid which men from our own Commonwealth 
give. We do not make these remarks with any intention to decry any other State, 
but the fact is unquestionably true. In other New England States the positions are very 
few which have sufficient attraction to retain a teacher but a small number of years, and 
these are not in the domain of public instruction. We are not to look for this state of 
things to continue. Some of our best teachers have lately removed to other States, and 
Rhode Island and Connecticut eminently are enjojing their services. But at present, 
Massachusetts is compelled to take the control to a good extent of this Association ; thirty- 
nine of the sixty-three officers are Massachusetts men ; and our own State is the only 
one which has ever appropriated a dollar to aid in its establishment. Its infancy has 
passed, however, and it is now in full success. At the late meeting in the city of 
Providence, more than a thousand teachers were present, and the exercises were of the 
highest order of excellence. 

Next in course is the Massachusetts State Teachers' Association. Its meetings are 
held annually, in Thanksgiving week, and are not unfrequently of much interest ; they 
bring together the best teachers of the State, and often attract eminent teachers and 
friends of education from neighboring States. The Massachusetts State Association pub- 
lish a monthly journal, conducted by tried and accomplished teachers, and offer prizes on 
subjects connected with education. 

Many of the counties also maintain their own Associations, and the meetings of these, 
although of course small, are often of great interest and profit. Norfolk, Essex, Mid- 
dlesex, Plymouth, Hampden, Bristol, Barnstable, Nantucket, Dukes, Franklin and Berk- 
shire, have each its association of teachers, to the support of which, the State grants fifty 
dollars annually. These meetings tend to keep alive an interest in the teacher's duties, 
and at them are formed and cemented friendships of great strength and endurance. They 
are to be valued on account of their influence for promoting sociality among teachers, 
rather than for being the means of imparting useful ideas. Our own estimate of the 
value of these meetings, whether of the State or County Associations, is so high that we 



EDUCATION IN MASSACHUSETTS. 189 

shall be pardoned for quoting a few words which we employed on another occasion when 
testifying to their merit. 

"At our conventions we assemble as men and women of great diversity in age, 
acquirements, and ability, but with one common purpose. Old attachments are revived, 
and new ones formed ; some give of the abundance of their thoughts ; others receive in 
their neediness ; but all are benefited. We do not plead in behalf of these meetings 
that many hints are thrown out, or many schemes proposed, which are received or 
adopted. We know that much which is said on such occasions is lost, simply because so 
much is said. But a word dropped upon this ear, and a sentence upon that, provoke 
thought, and thought speedily becomes action. We must not test the usefulness of these 
meetings by the amount of information gained. We must remember that we assemble to 
derive food for thought, rather than thought itself ; that we assemble to have our energies 
awakened, our purposes strengthened, and our hold on the blessings of social life con- 
firmed ; yet more, that we stand together there as the representatives of Massachusetts 
schools ; to testify to their strength, to their hold upon our affection ; to utter words 
which do not lose their force at the borders of our State, but which loudly ring wherever 
it is remembered that Massachusetts is the mother of American schools." 

We intended to present to our readers some account of the state of education in other 
sections of New England. This we are compelled to forego. We have already referred 
to the fact that Massachusetts is the leading State where teaching is adopted to any con- 
siderable extent for life. In the other States the teacher's salary is very moderate ; 
indeed there is scarcely a teacher in New Hampshire with whom the Principal of a good 
Massachusetts Higli School would be willing to exchange situation. Of Vermont, nearly 
the same thing could be said. But into these and other States, Massachusetts is infusing 
a portion of her own life, and the result is beginning to be manifest. Our State has 
been and is the " schoolmaster " to our sister States. We do not wish to boast of undue 
superiority. We are fully aware that the praise of excellence is to be awarded to but 
few of our schools, and to our system in theory rather than in practice ; still we would 
not be unmindful of what the great pervading spirit with regard to educated labor has 
effected, and that that feeling has gone forth from our own Massachusetts.

This School is kept in the building, lately 
occupied by the State Normal School, situated 
in the pleasant and healthful village of West 
Newton, Mass., on the line of the Boston and 
Worcester Railroad, nine miles from Boston, 
and about two minutes' walk from the station. 

It is intended that the course of studies shall 
embrace every branch of a thorough English 
and Classical education, as well as Modern 
Languages ; and while particular attention is 
given to preparation for College, or for Mer- 
cantile and Scientific pursuits, the highest aim 
of the teachers will be to impart instruction in 
the common branches thoroughly and cor- 
rectly. 

A primary department will be connected 
with the institution, into which pupils of the 
youngest school-age will be received. Partic- 



ular attention will be given to the subject of 
manners and morals.

HISTORICAL AND COMMEMORATIVE ASSOCIATIONS. 



American Antiquarian Society, 
Worcester. 

Incorporated 1812. The American Anti- 
quarian Society, established for the purpose ol 
collecting and preserving the materials of his- 
tory, more especially American History, was in- 
corporated by the Legislature of Massachusetts, 
in 1812. 

Isaiah Thomas, the distinguished Printer and 
Publisher, and author of " The History of 
Printing in America," was the first President, 
and has been the greatest benefactor of this 
institution. A brick edifice for the Library 
and Cabinet, erected at his expense, was com- 
pleted in 1820. His private collection of 
books, -which was a very considerable one, be- 
came the basis of the Library. Extensive ad- 
ditions -were made to the building after his 
death, from resources provided by his will ; 



and the principal portion of the funds of the 
Society, now amounting to more than §'27,000, 
resulted from his bequests. 

The Library of the Society now exceeds 
16,000 volumes. Its cabinet contains many 
articles of curiosity and interest ; and its manu- 
scripts, coins, &c., are of considerable value. 
Two volumes of Transactions, and a catalogue 
of the Library, have been published ; and a 
third volume of Transactions is in preparation 
for the press. 

There are two meetings of the Society in 
the year; one at Worcester, on the 21st day of 
October, in commemoration of the discov- 
ery of America by Columbus, the other in Bos- 
ton, on the last Wednesday of each month, at 
the Antiquarian Hall, in Worcester.

This inotiiution oriv'inated in a conviction 
that the interests of Congregationalism, and 
of Christianity in general, would be advanced 
by collecting into one accessible place Avhat- 
ever printeii or manuscript memorials of the 
New E igiand Fathers are yete.xtant, and also 
such documents of the present age as will be 
of hisfiriral v^^lue in the ages to come. It was 
orginizfd in Boston on the 12th ot February, 
IS.Jl. Tne enterprise, however, was conduct- 
ed on a comparatively small scale, till, by a 
re-organizaion iu M^y, 1853, its |)rivilege8 
were extended to the whole body of Evan- 
gelical Coiigregationalists throughout the con- 
liiienf, and their co-operation invited. 

Its chief design, in ihe words of the consti- 
tution, is " to Ibund and prepetuate a Library 
ol' books, pamph'ets and manuscripts, and a 
collection of portraits, and whatever ese shall 
serve to illustrate Puritan history and promote 
the general iiiteiests of Conoregaiionalism ;" 
as also "to secure the erection of a suitable 
building for its Library, its meetii gs, and the 
general purpuses of the body. The terms of 
mem^;ersr)ip are one dollar only, — with the 
reafOnable expectation that each member will 
interest himself in preserving from destruction 
and transmiciing to the Library such docu- 
ments, bearing on the general oljectsofthe 
Association, as may come iu his *\ay. 

The By-Laws provide Jbr " a sermon, ora- 
tion, or addre-s " at each anniveisary, " (^ 
the Tuesday preceding the 4ih Wednesday in 
Miv,"' — to be lollowtd the next day by " a 
collaiion, accompanied by such exercises as 
ihe directors uiiiy pie&cnbe." There are also 
ihreeoiher meetings i.f the body each year, 
viz. : — *' on ihe last Tuesday of August, No- 
vember and February." The Directors meet 
monthly, aiid report annually. 

No book, pamphlet or periodical can be 
faken from the Libr,ir\ ; but the room is open 
to ihe members at all hours during the day — 
Sunda}S excepted — for reaoi^g, reference 
and consultation, and a L brariau is ever on 
hdiid to assist their iiupiiries. 

Since the organization in May, 18-53, about 
1000 members have enrolled iheiinaints, resi-

Public Library of the City of Boston. 
Located temporarily in Mason Street. 

Instituted 1852. Edward Capen, Librarian. 
Samuel M. Bedlington, John W. M. Appleton, 
Assist. Librarians. 

Board of Trustees. — Hon. Edward Everett, 
.LL. D., JPresident of the Board. George 
Ticknor, LL. D., Hon, John P. Bigelow, 
Nathaniel B. ShurtlefF, M. D., Thomas G. 
Appleton, Esq., from the Citizens at Large. 
Alderman A. B. Munroe ; and George W. 
Warren, Esq., of the Common Council. 

The Reading Room connected with this 
Institution, was opened to the public on the 
twentieth of March, and for the circulation of 
books for home use, on the second of May, 
1854. The plan of the Trustees embraces a 
Reading Room and a circulating Library. 
The Reading Room is open from 9 A. M. to 
9, SO P. M., and affords, free of expense, a 
place of I'esortto all the inhabitants of Boston, 
above the age of sixteen years, who sign a 
promise to obey the rules and regulations. 
Those who make use of it will find spread out 
before them, upon tables conveniently ar- 
ranged for reading and writing the leading 
weekly, monthly and quarterly Journals of 
the United States and Great Britain, together 
with a good selection in the French and Ger- 
man Languages. They will also be able to 
consult and read at all times any book in the 
Reference Library ; and, at such times as it 
may not be in home use, any book in the Cir- 
culating Library. The Library is open for 
the circulation of books, from 3 to 8 o'clock, 
P. M., and freely aiibrds its treasures for home 
use under certificates applicable to each 
case, to past and present members of the City 
Council ; to office holders under the City Gov- 
ernment and all persons regularly employed 
by the City ; to all officiating ministers of the 
Gospel, teachers of Private Schools and mem- 
bers of the Normal School ; to all medal schol- 
ars, and an equal number of pupils proficient 
in their studies graduating with them from the 
Public Schools ; and to all the inhabitants of 
Boston over the age of twenty-one years, who 
are known to the Librarian to be persons who 
ought to enjoy the privileges of the Library. 
These treasures are also accessible to all non- 
resident donors of one hundred dollars or an 
equivalent ; to all who deposit the value of a 
book or set of books, for the time being ; and 



to all, finally, who bring a certificate from a 
responsible citizen, who thereby makes him- 
self liable for loss and injury. 

The second annual report of the Trustees, 
dated Nov. 3, 1854, gives the following infor- 
mation : — 

" If we are authorized to form an opinion of 
the future growth of the library from the ex- 
perience of the past, we may safely calculate 
upon an increase hereafter of at least six thou- 
sand volumes annually, exclusive of pamphlets ; 
a rate of Increase which in fourteen jears will 
carry the library up to 100,000 volumes, — a 
larger collection than any at present existing 
in the United Stares." 

The number of volumes at present in the 
library, is 16,221, besides 2,989 tracts added 
this year, and nearly a thousand given earlier. 
In November, 1853, the number was 9,G88. 
There are of many works quite a number of 
duplicates, but still the supply falls short of the 
demand, and a great many persons cannot ob- 
tain the book they want at the time they ask 
for it; and of many books desired, no copy at 
all has yet been bought, for want of funds ; 
and It is confidently believed that when this 
fact is made known, many persons who have 
books lying idle In their houses, because they 
have ceased to be interesting to their families, 
will gladly add them to the Public Library, 
where they will again become useful. 

For the first five months and a half of its ex- 
istence, ending Oct. 17, 1854, "six thousand 
five hundred and ninety persons entered their 
names in order to enjoy its privileges ; the 
number of volumes borrowed for home use 
was thirty-five thousand three hundred and 
eighty-nine, besides several thousands used 
in the reading room, of which no record is 
kpet." 

In December, 1854, the following gentle- 
men were appointed to superintend the erec- 
tion of a building for the Library: — Robert 
C. Winthrop, Samuel G. Ward, from Citizens 
at Large. George Ticknor, Nathaniel B. Shurt- 
leff, from Trustees of Public Library. Geo. 
Odiorne, from Board of Aldermen, George 
W. Warren, from Common Council, of 1854.

ORDEE OF UNITED AMERICANS. 

This Order was established in Massachusetts in 1846, and has for its object, the pro- 
motion and encouragement of American principles and American indastrj. Though in- 
directly somewhat political in its nature, the Order is in no sense a partisan organization, 
but aims to preserve and perpetuate those institutions which have resulted from our 
revolutionary struggle. 

The Annual meeting of the Chancery is held in Boston on the first Monday in Octo- 
ber, Quarter meetings in January, April and July, and Special meetings at pleasure.

Annual meeting of the Society en the 2d 
Thursday in May. 

According to the last annual report of this 
Society's operations, there have been 82 new 
societies formed, principally in the Southern 
and Western States, making the whole num- 
ber of societies auxiliary to the Parent Socie- 
ty about 3,000. 

Ninety-eight Life Directors, and 1774 Life 
Members, have been added to the Society 
duinng the year, being an increase over the 
number made previous year, of thirty-one Life 
Directors, and of 411 Life Members, which 
increase bears testimony to the increasing ap- 
preciation of this Society. 

The receipts of the year amount to §5394,- 
340.50, which is an increase of $47,798.08 
above the amount of last year ; the amount 
received from legacies is $34,522.24. 

The expenditures during the year have 
been as follows: — 

Expenses of Depository and publishing de- 
partment, - - - $303,581.07 

Salaries, and expenses of Agents 

and other officers, - - 57,497.60 

For the circulation of the Bible in 

foreign lands, - - - 31,424.78 



$394,713.55 



The number of Bibles printed during the 
year, of all sizes, and in diflferent languages, 
is 306,000, and of Testaments 556,000. This 
makes the total issues since the organization 
of the Society about one million. 

The Bibles and Testaments are distributed 
in all parts of the world. 

At present there are thirty-two Agents em- 
ployed exclusively by this Society, besides 
two more employed in conjunction with auxil- 
iary societies. Of these, six were appointed 
during the year, including one to Oregon Ter- 
ritory. Six of those employed the year be- 
fore, have resigned. 

The number of volumes issued gratuitously 
during the past year, is 57,520. Besides 
these, the Society has published, or purchased 
and circulated gratuitously, in foreign lands, 
many other thousands. A large number of 
volumes, moreover, which had been sold, and 
never paid for, have, during the year, been 
granted to the parties so indebted. 

That the books thus issued have gone to 
meet a great variety of wants, both at home and 
abroad, will be seen by a few specimens se- 
lected from the different classes of grants. 

Soon after the organization of the Society, 
an effort was made to collect Bibles of differ- 
ent tongues, particularly those of an early 
date, into a Library. The object was to 
have the means at hand for comparing one 
version with another, and thus making them, 
when preparing new versions, mutual helpers 
in determining the true oleanlng of the In- 
spired Word. For the same purpose, lexi- 
cons, grammars, concordances, commentaries, 
&c., were sought, and many of them furnished 
as a gratuity. 

The Library has grown from year to year, 
until the number of volumes now amounts to

seventeen thousand. Many of them, it is true, 
are of comparatively little worth in such a Li- 
brary, while others have a high value. One 
Bible in Latin, black letter, with illumin- 
ated chapters, was printed in Venice, in 1476, 
shortly after the art of printing was discover- 
ed. Twelve copies are folios and quartos in 
English, which preceded the version of King 
James in 1611, and many are of those which 
immediately succeeded. Specimens, more or 
less perfect, have then been gathered in near- 
ly all the tongues into which the Scriptures 
have been translated.

The last report of this Society states that 
the receipts of the previous year were about 
S 12 1 ,000, and the expenditures over $1 30,000. 
Nine agents have been employed during the 
year, who have visited and attended over 
17,000 churches and public meetings, a larger 
number than have been visited in any pre- 
vious year. 

Two periodicals have been issued, with a 
monthly circulation of 42,000 copies. Five 
missionaries have been appointed during the 
year. 

The number of missions prosecuted under 
direction of the Board, is twenty-one, embrac- 
ing eighty-six stations and five hundred and 
thirty-nine outstations. Connected with the 
missions are sixty-six missionaries, of whom 
sixty-one are preachers, and there are sixty- 
four female assistants. Two missionaries and 
five female assistants have died, and four mis- 
sionaries and four female assistants have joined 
the missions. The number of native preach- 
ers and assistants is two hundred and twenty ; 
total of missionaries and assistants connected 
with the missions, three hundred and forty- 
nine. Three missionaries are under appoint- 
ment. There are one hundred and ninety- 
two churches, having a membership of about 
15,219, of whom were added by baptism the 
past year, 1,820. The number of schools is 
eighty-eight, including three for native preach- 
ers, and fourteen normal and boarding schools, 
with about 1,992 pupils. 

The American Baptist Missionary Union 
has now 4,853 members, by the payment of 
one hundred dollars each, the majority of 
whom are laymen, and of whom full three- 
fourths were made members by the votes of 
churches and other religious bodies. The 
number constituted members within the past 
year is 667.

The forty-fifth Annual Meeting of this Asso- 
ciation occurred in September last. The 
doings of the Soeie'-y are in brief as follows : 

Forty-one missionaries, thirty-four of whom 
were for the first time employed, have been 
sent forth upon foreign missions. Sixteen are 
now under appointments, and " yet," says the 
report, "there is not the slightest probability 
that the supply will equal or even approximate 
the demand." 

Three publications have been, as usual, regu- 
larly issued during the year, the monthly cir- 
culation of which has been 77,116 copies. Of 
other works, there have been published 22,- 
150 copies. Eleven Agents have been, and 
are still employed by the Association ; in addi- 
tion to which much labor has been expended 
by returned missionaries. 

The receipts of the past year, including a 
small balance on hand ac the beginning of the 
year, have been $310,107.90, and the expen- 
ditures have amounted to $322,150.39, being 
over S12, 000 more than the amount of avail- 
able means of the Board. 

The Board have at present under their care 
twenty-nine missions, with 166 stations and 
out-stations, at which 404 missionaries and 
their assistants are employed, besides 268 na- 
tives, or a total of 672 laborers. 

The whole number of churches connected 
with the missions is 104, containing 26,526 
members. The number of members admitted 
to all the churches during the year is 2,152. 

The number of pages printed during the 
year is 57,650,750. The number of pupils in 
all the schools connected with the missions is 
23,550, of whom 11,353 are supported at school 
by the Hawaiian government. The Educa- 
tional Department consists of nine Seminaries, 
twenty-three Boarding schools, and six hun- 
dred and ninety-seven Free schools, of which 
three hundred and forty-four are supported 
by the Hawaiian Government.

From the last Report of the Society it 
appears that the receipts from donations, 
legacies, &c., have been $21,3G6.47, and the 
disbursements during the year, $19,673.59. 

The Report says, " Notwithstanding the 
present very prosperous condition of our 
Treasury, it happened no longer ago than last 
January, that the Board were compelled to 
make an appropriation of fifteen instead of 
the usual appropriation of tioenty dollars, 
through lack of funds. At the quarterly 
meeting in April, the Directors were able to 
make up this deficiency, and yet leave the 
Treasury in excellent condition. The reason 
of this sudden change in the state of the 
Treasury, may be found in the recent receipt 
of large sums in the form of legacies. This 
source of income,',while it is very important to 
us, is in its nature very irregular. * « » 

" One fact connected with our financial his- 
tory for the past year, is gratifying. By refer- 
ence to the more detailed Report of the Treas- 
urer, it will be seen that our income, derived 
from the contributions of the churches, is 
decidedly on the increase. We received, dur- 
ing the year, $10,157.46 from this source 
alone. The year previous, this part of our 
income was less than $9000 ; and for some 
years before, it had been less than 88000. 

" Two hundred and ninety-seven young men 
have received aid during the past year, from 
the Treasury of the Society, and although the 
number for the past year falls slightly below 
what it was the year previous, still the general 
law is very clearly one of advance, though the 
progress is altogether too slow. It were great- 
ly to be desired that this number might be 
largely increased, and that speedily. 

"The young men' under the care of the 
Society, continue to make the most commenda- 
ble exertions to aid themselves in their course 
of education. The amount returned last year, 
on the schedules, as having been earned by 
the beneficiaries, was $17,638; a sum very 
nearly the same as that appropriated from our 
Treasury for their support. This sum does 
not differ very materially from that returned in 
some former years, and yet it is steadily on the 
increase. The same services, especially in the 
department of School Teaching, are doubtless 
better rewarded now than they were a few 
years ago, and this may be sufficient to account 
for the improvement under this head."

At the last annual meeting of this Society, 



held in New York city. May 10, 1854, a re- 
port of its doings was presented, from which 
we gather a few items of information. 

The number of ministers in the service of 
the Society is 1,047, of whom 292 have la- 
bored in New England, and the remainder, 
214 in the Middle, 11 in the Southern and 
530 in the Western States and the Pacific 
Coast. The aggregate of ministerial labor has 
been equal to 870 years. Two thousand one 
hundred and forty-one societies and stations 
have been supplied with preaching, at stated 
intervals, by the Society ; sixty-five of which 
have been addressed in foreign languages. 

Connected with these societies are 65,400 
Sunday School scholars. The additions to the 
churches have been 6,025 ; one-half of whom 
are recent converts. These societies have con- 
tributed to benevolent operations, $30,106.88. 

Fifty new churches have been organized ; 
and forty-five have become self-sustaining, and 
have passed from the list of beneficiaries to 
that of benefactors, sixty-five houses of wor- 
ship have been completed, forty-nine repaired 
or improved, and eighty-eight are in the pro- 
cess of erection. 

The receipts of the year have been $198,- 
41 1,22, and the expenditures $184,025.76, leav- 
ing a balance in the treasury of $14,385.45. 

Since the establishment of the Society in 
1826, 15,706 years of labor have been per- 
formed by its missionaries ; about $2,715,000 
have been expended, averaging about $173 
for each year of missionary labor. During 
the whole time, 126,705 persons have been 
added to the churches under the patronage of 
the Society.

The operations of this Society, as reported 
at the last annual meeting held in Boston in 
May, 1854, are briefly as follows. 

Seventy-six new publications have been is- 
sued in 7 different languages, making the total 
number of the Society's publications, 4,912. 



RELIGIOUS ASSOCIATIONS. 



221 



Two monthly newspapers have been pub- 
lished in English, with a circulation of'450,000 
copies ; and one in German, which circulates 
25,000 copies. The cost of these three papers 
has been $51,693.18, and the entire receipts 
$48,042.49, or $3,650.69 less than the outgoes. 
The deficiency is owing partly to a rise in the 
price of paper, the increased circulation of the 
Messenger gratuitously to missionaries at home 
and abroad, and to colporteurs and poor fami- 
lies; and to the stock of the Child's Paper 
retained for future binding. 

Twenty-one colporteurs have been employed 
during the year ; the latter of whom have 
sold about $12,000 worth of books, and given 
away over one thousand dollars worth more. 
They have visited 14,133 fdmilies,of which 2422 
neglect public worship ; 809 were destitute of 
religious books, except the Bible; and 359 
were destitute of the Bible. 

This Society confines its labors mostly to 
the New England States, but is closely con- 
nected with the Society whose head quarters 
are at New York, and which occupies the 
whole Union as its field of labor. This latter 
Society employs 619 colporteurs, who have 
visited during the year 568,032 families ; 30,- 
694 of which were destitute of the Bible, and 
49,935 of other religious books. 

'The expenditures for the year have been 
over $406,000. A large number of collegiate 
and theological students engage in this work 
during their vacations ; and afterwards have 
acknowledged themselves under great obliga- 
tion to this service, for much of the animation 
they have been called upon to manifest in the 
more dignified fields of missionary labor.

THE THURSDAY LECTURE. 

This Lecture was commenced by John Cot- 
ton, second Pastor of the First Church, in Bos- 
ton, in 1623, and at first sustained by himself 
alone. Afterwards, by courtesy, it came to be 
preached by each of the ministers of the Bos- 
ton Association in turn. In the year 1845, the 
Association gave it back into the hands of the 
Pastor of the First Church, to whom, by right, 
it still belonged. By his invitation the following 
gentlemen assist in sustaining the Lecture. 
It is preached by them in the order of their 
college graduation, in the Chauncy Place 
meeting-house on every Thursday at eleven 
A. M.

By an act of the last Legislature, an impor- 
tant change was made in the Judiciary of this 
State. The District Courts, which took the 
place of old Courts of Common Pleas, were 
abolished, and all their jurisdiction transferred 
to the Supreme Judicial Court, to which bench 



above act. The State is now divided into three 
Judicial Districts, denominated the Western, 
Middle, and Eastern Districts ; and for the 
purpose of hearing and determining questions 
of law and equity, the terms are held for these 
districts, instead of being held as heretofore, 
in the several counties. These terms are held 
annually in Portland for the Western, in Au- 
gusta tor the Middle, and in Bangor for the 
Eastern District. The other cases are tried, 
as heretofore, in the several counties where 
they are commenced.

POPULATION OF NEW ENGLAND, 



235 



POPULATION OE NEW ENGLAND, 

The Act of Congress under which the United States Census for 1850 was taken, 
established the rule which was to be adopted for the apportionment of members for the 33d 
Congress, and until the taking of the next census. That rule limited the number of the 
members of the House to 233, and provided that the ratio of apportionment should be 
obtained bj dividing the aggregate population of the Union, as ascertained by the new 
census, after deducting therefrom two-fifths of the whole number of slaves, by 233. The 
population of each State was then to be divided by the ratio so obtained, and the last 
quotient would show the number of members to which the State would be entitled, 
besides which, however, those States to which the largest fractions belonged, after the 
division, were to be entitled to one additional member, until the whole number of 233 
should be made up. This apportionment was made, and the result certified by the Secre- 
tary of the Interior. 

We give below, according to the United States Census of 1850, the population of the 
States of Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. The pop- 
ulation of Massachusetts may be found in the table of Grubernatorial Votes, Population, 
&c.
