During twenty-two municipal years, one being but eight 

months, when the time of the City election was changed in 1825, 

eighty citizens have ser^'ed as Aldermen, fourteen have deceased, 

two while in office. Five hundred and thirty-two members of the 

Common Council have been qualified.

Thirty-five citizens have represented two wards. About a third 

of these cases was occasioned by the altered division of wards in 

1838. One citizen has represented three wards. Showing that 

four hundred and ninety-six citizens have served in the Common 

Council, sixty-seven of whom have deceased, four while in office. 

NOTE. 

The asterisk denotes the deceased. 

The Junior of Theodore Lyman, omitted 1839. See Mayors. 

ALDERMEN. 

Nathaniel P. Russell, Daniel Baxter, Joseph H. Dorr, reelected 
and Thomas B. Wales and Redford Webster elected 1825, de- 
clined. 

George Blake reelected for 1826, declined. 

John Stevens elected for 1832, died prior to the organization. 

James Savage elected for 1834, declined. 

COMMON COUNCIL. 

William Bowes Bradford, ward 3, elected 1822, did not qualify 
himself, declining to be sworn, there being then no provision for 
affirmation, except for Quakers. 

Lucius Manlius Sargent, ward 6, elected for 1827, declined. 
Henry D. Gray and Isaac Harris, ward 1; Eleazer Howard, 
ward 2, and Joseph H. Thayer, ward 9, (now 8,) elected for 1828, 
'declined prior to the organization. 
4* 



42 

Samuel Thaxter, ward 6, elected for 1830, declined. 

William Foster, ward 6, elected for 1831, declined. 

John Boles, ward 3, reelected for 1838, declined. 

The Junior of George Morey omitted 1829. 

Asa Adams, ward 3, took the intermediate name of Perry, 1830. 

The Junior of Joshua Seaver, ward 6, omitted 1833. 

The Junior of Henry Fowle, ward 2, omitted 1837. 

The Junior of Francis Brinley, ward 10, omitted 1838. 

Washington P. Gragg, ward 4, spelt Gregg since 1836. 

There have been four successfully contested elections. 

The first, Feb. 22, 1830, vacated the seat of a member from 
ward 6, on the ground that " closing the poll before the hour at 
which the voters were notified it would be closed, was a violation 
of the rights of the voters." 

The second. May 7, 1835, vacated the seats of the members of 
ward 3, who were returned as having been elected at an adjourn- 
ed meeting, Dec. 11, 1834, on the ground of irregular proceeding 
to render the whole number of votes certain by taking the high- 
est number of votes for candidates on each opposing ticket ; ad- 
journment of the meeting by the sole authority of the warden, 
and other irregularities at the annual election, December 8. 

The third case, March 7, 1839, vacated the seats of three mem- 
bers of ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters suf- 
ficient to effect the choice, voted at the polls. 

The fourth, Feb. 9, 1843, vacated the seats of three members 
from ward 1, returned as elected at the ad.iourned meeting, Dec. 
14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident candidates? 
(*after having been first thrown out by the ward officers,) were 
counted at the annual election, December 12, thereby preventing 
the choice of two other candidates, who, by excluding the said 
four votes, were by the decision of the Council declared elected, 
leaving one vacancy. 

The words in the Catalogue, " See JVo." — refer to wards. 
*This fact was admitted though not stated in the report of the Committee.
