C ATALO GUE 



OF THE 



aOVERNMENT 



OF THE 



CITY OF BOSTON, 



IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER OF THEIR SERVICE, 



FROM ITS INSTITUTION, MAY I, 1822, TO JAN. 1, 1846, 



WITH AN 



INDEX. 



PRELIMINARY REMARKS. 



During twenty-four municipal years, one being but eight months, 
when the time of the City election was changed in 1825, ninety 
citizens have served as Aldermen, sixteen have deceased, two 
while in office. Five hundred and ninety-two members of the 
Common Council have been qualified.

Forty-three citizens have represented two wards. About a third 
of these cases were occasioned by the altered division of the wards 
in 1838. One citizen has represented three wards. Showing that 
five hundred and eighty-nine citizens have served in the Common 
Council, eighty-three of whom have deceased, five while in office.

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, 
also Holmes Hinckley, ward 11, for 1845, declined prior to the 
organization. 

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, ommitted 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 adjourned 
meeting, Dec, 11, 1834, on the ground of irregular proceeding to 
render the whole number of votes certain by taking the highest 
number of votes for candidates on each opposing ticket j adjourn- 
ment 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 adjourned meeting, Dec. 
14, on the ground that foui* votes for non-resident candidates. 



71 

(*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 election of Mayor for 1845, was more warmly contested 
than on any former year. There were not less than eight several 
ballotings by the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the 21st of Feb- 
ruary, Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the meantime, from January to February 27, 1845, William 
Parker, one of the Aldermen, having been elected Chairman of 
the Board of Aldermen, performed the duties of Mayor. 

On the 6th of October, Thomas A. Davis, being in declining 
health, resigned the office of Mayor, which resignation however, 
was not accepted by the City Council ; and on the 22d of Novem- 
ber he died, being the first Mayor who has died, while in office, 
since the organization of the City Government in 1822. 

On the 11th of December, Josiah Q,uincy, Jr. was elected 
Mayor, by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. 

Benson Leavitt, one of the Board of Aldermen, acted as Chair- 
man of the Board in the interval between the death of Mr. Davis 
and the election of Mr. Quincy. 

In 1844, the office of City Attorney was abolished. 

The words in the Catalogue, "5ee JVo." — refer to wards. 

*This fact was admitted though not stated in the report of the Committee.
