was $51,947 42 

To this sum add the amount paid by R, Means, 
Collector, for State and County Tax,whicb has 
not been through the Treasury, but received 
for taxes, 1848, 3,348 55 



And the total amount of Expenditures by Orders 

and Drafts on the Treasurer, was $50,399 87 

State and County Tax paid by R. Means, Col. 3,348 55 



$55,295 97 
$53,748 42 



Showing an excess of Recipts over Expenditures, 
of $1,547 55 

K^^ ^a'ance in the Treasury, Feb. 1, 1848, was, 226 49 

Received into the Treasury this year as before 

stated $51,947 42 

Making a total in the Treasury, for the year, of $52,173 91 

T. be amount actualhj paid* Ci-om the Treasury 

on Drafts and Orders for 1848, was $47,628 27 

Do. on outstanding Drafts for 1847, was 29 23 

" " Town order for 1846, " 13 00 



Which deducted from the sum of $52,173 91, 
the amount in the Treasury this year, am! it 
leaves a balance in the Treasury, Feb. 1, 1849 
of 



$47,670 50 
$4,503 41 



$52,173 91 



The balance in the Treasury, as above, is $4,503 41 

Deducting from this sum the unpaid 

Drafts of 1847, $21 56 

" 1848, 2J71 60 

~$2,793, 16 
It would leave a balance in the Treasury of $1 710 25 



The amount of expenditures for any one year, never agrees with the amount 
paid by the Treasurer during the same time, because all of the January Draft 
IS unpaid at the time the accounts are closed, and also some portion of other 
Drafts have not been called for. 

c,f'^°r-'^f^''''^j T''^ amount paid by the Treasurer during the past year is 
$47 6/0 oO, and this sum includes the sum of $29 23 of the expenditures of 
1«47 and $13,00 of the expenditures of 1846, and excludes the sum of $2 771 60 
of the expenditures of the present year-the last sum remaining unpaid at 
the close of the fiscal year, and will come into the Treasurer's account for the 
year lo4U.

64 ALMS HOUSE REPORT. 

The whole number of persons assisted during the year, is 367. 
Of this number, 202 are foreigners, 165 Americans ; 22 having a set- 
tlement in this city, 26 having settlements in some other towns in this 
State, and ;M9 have no settlement in any town in this State. 

The number of deaths at the Alms House, during the year, is 5, of 
the following diseases : 

Old age, 8 

Inflammation of the Bowels, 1 

Delirium Tremens, 1 

The average number at the Alms House, during the Fall and Win- 
ter months, was from 35 to 40. Of this number 30 are foreigners. 

It will be obvious to every one, by the number who have made ap- 
plication for relief, and that have been assisted during the year, riiat 
the business of managing the affairs of the Alms House and paupers, is 
every day becoming more difficult and 'complicated, and 'requires 
the utmost vigilance on the part of those to whom this important branch 
of the city business is intrusted. It has been our aim and endeavor in 
all cases to relieve the distressed, but not to encourage idleness ; al- 
though, often times, it has been a difficult question for us to decide, 
when we are called upon to render assistance, in many cases, to well, 
able bodied men to all appearances, whether we are really relieving 
suffering humanity or encouraging idleness and indolence. If we add 
to the balancQ in favor of the farm, the sum expended for labor upon 
the farm for improvements and betterments to the lands, it will increase 
that sum to $500,00 or 8600,00. It is the opinion of competent judges, 
that this sum is much too low, when we take into consideration the fact 
that fifty convicts have been sent to the House of Correction during th( 
past year for offences committed within the city, most of whom art 
healthy, able bodied men, and have labored upon the farm 20 or 30 day; 
each. The greatest number of convicts at the House of Correction, at 
any onetime, was 13. This additional number to the Alms House has 
increased the expenditures for their support, without receiving any 
equivalent except their labor upon the farm, mainly for permanent im- 
provements ; and should therefore be added to the balance in favor of the 
farm. About 200 rods of ditches have been cut in the meadow the past 
year by the convicts, and preparations made to reclaim a part of it. 

We recommend that the house on the Davis farm be fitted up for the 
House of Correction. There can be neither right or justice in putting

criminals who are sentenced to the House of Correction, and there con- 
fined to hard labor, as a punishment for crimes committed upon society. 
The evil influences of so intimate a connection of the paupers and con- 
victs, are too plainly evident to allow it to continue for any considera- 
ble length of time. Owing to the improvement of the lands, the in- 
creasing quantity of hay produced will necessarily require more barn 
room than the present. The superintendent has prepared, during the 
last year, a part of the lumber suitable for a barn 40 by 100 feet, which 
we consider the proper size. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



To THE Mayor and Aldermen of Manchester : 

The duties of the school committee for the past year, have, doubtless, 
been greater than heretofore, in consequence of the very crowded state 
of the schools in District No. 2, during the first and second terms, 
and the establishment of five new schools at the commencement of the 
third term. The committee has been reduced nearly one half in num- 
ber by resignations. This has also very materially increased their la- 
bors. We believe, however, that the schools were never in a more 
prosperous condition, than at the present time. 

Realizing that the character of our population depends in a great 
measure upon our schools, we have endeavored to inculcate thorough 
trammg, rather than superficial advancement. We have labored to 
establish a uniform system of teaching, as far as practicable, in all our 
schools; and also, to infuse life, animation, and interest, iiito every 
recitation. 

Our attention was very early directed to the character, and great 
variety of reading books, in our Primary and Middle schools ; and real- 
izing the dissatisfaction which a change of books frequently creates, 
we determined, at first, to make no change; but upon further observal 
tion, seeing the inconvenience of teaching from so many diflferent and 
unsuitable books, and feeling that the schools were suffering materially 
from this cause, we determined, though reluctantly, to introduce a uni- 
form series of reading books into all these schools; and we feel 
confident that this change will be highly beneficial, not only to the pu- 
pils, but also to parents, though attended at first with some little ex- 
pense. 

In the selection of teachers, we think we have been, generally, very 
fortunate. We have had occasion to make but few changes during the 
year, though we have had to supply the places of several who have left 
of their own accord. We feel great confidence in recommending the 
great majorty of them to our successors in ofllice, feeling that they are

an ornament to our city, and are making the most untiring efforts for 
the advancement and happiness of our children. 

The whole number of Free Public Schools in Manchester, at the 
present time, is twenty nine, besides several very respectable and well 
attended tuition schools. Districts No. 1, 3, 4, 5, G, 7, 8 and 9, inclu- 
ding the suburbs of the city, have but one school each, varying from 
six to nine months in the year. Female teachers are employed for the 
Summer terms, and male for the Winter, The school in No. 1 is 
rather small, and not so far advanced as the schools in some of the other 
districts. It is, however, improving. Its teachers have given very 
good satisfaction the present year. No. 3 is more advanced and prob- 
ably has more branches taught in it than in any district in the city, ex- 
cept No. 2. We think less branches should be taught in a school of 
this kind, and more time devoted to scholars of ordinary acquirements. 
No. 4 appears to be in a prosperous condition. No. 5 is progressing 
very satisfactorily, though not so far advanced as some other districts. 
No. G is advancing as rapidly as any school in the city, though there 
are not so many branches taught there, as in several other districts. 
The teacher for the Winter tei-m, appears to have given entire satis- 
faction, both to scholars and parents. No. 7 contains too many schol- 
ars to be under the instruction of one teacher. We would suggest, for 
the consideration of this district, the propriety of establishing another 
school, or of dividing the district. We feel confident that less school- 
ing, with a smaller number of scholars, would be more beneficial. We 
hope some means will be taken by the voters in this district to over- 
come this difiiculty. The school in No. 8 during the Summer term 
was very small, but during the Winter it has been much belter attend- 
ed. It contains some very good scholars, who appear to be progress- 
ing rapidly. No. 9, though not so far advanced as many, is neverthe- 
less making very Commendable progress. 

The teachers in these schools have endeavored to be up with all the 
recent improvements in teaching. Many of the scholars in these schools 
would be an ornament to our High and Grammar schools, in District 
No. 2. These schools demand the peculiar attention of the commit- 
tee, as they are wholly under their supervision. We are of the opinion 
that they should be visited four times a year ; near the beginning, and 
close of each term. 

We have, in district No. 2, including the city proper, ten Primary 
schools, six Middle, two Miscellaneous, two Grammar, and one High 



SCHOOL committee's REPORT. 69 

school. The Infant school, formerly kept on Manchester st., was dis- 
continued at the beginning of the year, and a Primary school established 
in its place. This was done in consequence of the crowded state of the 
Primary schools, and of its very local and partial advantages, none be- 
ing benefitted by it, excepting those in its immediate vicinity. A 
school was kept on the corner of Pine and Merrimack streets, during 
a part of the Summer ana Fall terms, which has also been discontinued, 
the room being unsuitable. 

The committee saw fit to divide the year into three, instead of four 
terras, for the purpose of having a long vacation during the month of 
August. Schools are worth but little during this month, particularly 
to small children ; as many are sick at this season of the year, and oth- 
ers are taken to the surrounding country, or to the seaboard. The first 
vacation is two weeks, the second four, and the third two. This ar- 
rangement, as far as we know, has given very general satisfaction. 

During the first and second terms, our Primary and Middle schools 
were in a very crowded condition, many of them numbering from eighty 
to one hundred and twenty scholars. But since the establishment of 
two more Primary and two Middle schools, they are in a very comfort- 
able state, and are novv, in our opinion, with but few exceptions, .what 
they should be. Several of them are, doubtless, equal to any of the 
kind in New England. They are all taught by females. 

Our Primary schools are for all children over four years of age, who 
are not prepared to enter the Middle schools. In these schools are 
taught Reading, Spelling, Arithmetic, Geography, Abbreviations, Com- 
bination of Numbers,Arithmetical Tables, Marks of Punctuation, Sing- 
ing, the Lord's Prayer, &c. At the commencement of each term, the 
committee visit these schools, and select such pupils as are qualified , 
for the Middle schools. 

In our Middle schools are taught Reading, Spelling, Geography, 
History of the United States, and Mental Arithmetic. These schools 
are visited at the beginning of each term ; and those found qualified are 
permitted to enter the Grammar schools. 

The school at the Falls, and also the one at Janesville, are taught 
by females, and are composed of scholars of all grades. This ar- 
rangement seems necessary for the accommodation of our citizens 
who live at too great a distance to send to our Grammar schools. 

The teachers in each of our Grammar schools, consist of a male 
Principal, and two female Assistants. These schools, situated one at 



W SCHOOL committee's REPORT. 

the North, and the other at the South part of the city, are both in a 
very flourishing condition, having about an equal number of scholars. 
The North Grammar school has been in operation only a few weeks, 
but bids fair to become a successful competitor to the South. The 
course of study in these schools, consists of Reading, Spelling, Mental 
Arithmetic, Practical Arithmetic, English Grammar, Geography, 
U. S. History, Physiology, Declamation, and Composition. 

The instruction in all the branches taught in these schools, is de- 
signed to be very critical, as a preparation for entering the High 
school. Those wishing to enter the High school from the Grammar 
schools, or otherwise, have to be examined by the committee, in all 
cases. 

Our High school is under the instruction of a male Principal and 
two female Assistants. It is in successful operation, though some 
scholars have found their way into it, who should be, at the present 
time, in. the Grammar schools. AVe have not seen fit to reduce them 
to their proper place, knowing the dissatisfaction which would attend 
such a course. We would earnestly recommend to our successors not 
to admit any more into this school, who are not amply qualified for the 
place, both in education, and character. Should the policy be pur- 
sued, which has been practiced in time past, our High school would 
be overrun by those who would be doing much better in our Grammar 
schools; and the character and efficiency of our High school would 
be very seriously injured. 

The following branches are pursued in this scliool : Reading and 
Spelling, Arithmetic, Grammar, Ancient History, Parker's Exercises, 
Algebra, Watts on the Mind, Botany, Drawing, Milton and Young, 
Geometry, Astronomy, Natural Philosophy, Plane Trigonometry, 
Cliemistry, Rhetoric, Philosophy of Natural History, Spherical Trig- 
onometry, Surveying, Physiology, Moral Philosophy, Geology, Miner- 
alogy, Logic, Intellectual Philosophy, Political Economy, Butler's An- 
alogy, and the Greek and Latin Languages. Composition and Decla- 
mation weekly. The time required to complete the regular course of 
study in this school, is three years; and this course is considered 
sufficiently thorough to qualify the student-for entering most Colleges 
in the Stales. 

The Scriptures are rond daily in all our sclu)ols ; and some instruc- 
tions are given in morals, in singing, and in healthful exercises. A 



i 



SCHOOL COMxMITTEe's REPORT. 71 

Writing Master has been employed in the High and Grammar schools, 
and we would recommend a similar course in future. 

Geographical Outline Maps have been purchased for four of the 
Middle schools, and for both of the Grammar schools ; and Outline 
Anatomical Plates, for the High and Grammar schools, to assist in the 
study of Physiology. The two Middle schools, recently opened in 
rooms under the new Grammar school, should be supplied with Geo- 
graphical Outline Maps, at the beginning of next term. 

Notwithstanding the excellency of our schools, their great number and 
variety, we regret to say that hundreds of children and youth, not only 
foreigners, but natives of our own, and other States, are not brought 
under their influence ; but are daily strolling about our streets, pre- 
paring themselves to live in poverty and disgrace, or to be sent to the 
penitentiary. 

Many have grown too old in ignorance to enter our Primary or Mid- 
dle schools, without feeling very sensibly their deficiency ; so much so 
as to deter them from ever making the attempt. Many others are anx- 
ious to go to the Grammar schools, who are entirely unqualified, and 
who think themselves too large to enter the Middle schools. Another 
class are very desirous of attending school, but feel themselves too old 
to attend the Grammar schools, and are in noway qualified to enter the 
High school. Another class, of almost all ages from twelve to twenty, 
are willing to go to any school during the short time they can be spared 
from their work, but are desirous of attending to Writing, Written 
Arithmetic, &-c., while they are not prepared to enter the Grammar 
schools, and never can be, in the short time they are permitted to attend 
school. If such individuals grow up under the present arrangement,ihey 
must enter upon the duties of citizens, without a knowledge, even of 
figures, or of writing. 

To obviate these difficulties, with others of equal importance, we 
most heartily recommend the establishment of a school,to be under the 
instruction of a competent male teacher, and open for scholars of all ages 
and qualifications, where all the branches shall be taught, which are 
now taught in our Primary, Middle, and Grammar schools. This school 
might, appropriately be called the Accommodation school. Such a 
school would be of incalculable benefit to the community ; and we 
sincerely hope that measures will betaken for its establishment during 
the present year. 



72 SCHOOL committee's report. 



SCHOOL HOUSES, APPROPRIATIONS, &;c. 

At the last Annual meeting of School District No. 2, COOO dollars 
were raised for the construction of a Grammar school house on Spring 
street, with rooms in the basement fur Primary and Middle schools. 
This house has been completed, with the exception of a room in the 
attic, designed for a writing room. This room sliould be finished as 
soon as possible. The cost of the house has somewhat exceeded the 
appropriation, and we doubt not the District will take measures, the 
present year, to pay up the arrearage. 

This building far surpasses, in style and external appearance, any 
other school house in the city, and reflects much credit upon the build- 
ing committee. Its internal arrangements, however, particularly the 
construction of the seats, does not, generally, meet our approbation. 
We think chairs should have been used instead of benches. The 
large ruom in the second story of this house, will seat over two 
hundred scholars, and is occupied by a Gran mar tchcol. The 
basement is divided into four rooms, two of which are occupied by 
Primary, and two by Middle schools. After this house was erected, 
the two small school houses which formerly occupied its site, were re- 
moved to the South part of the city. The district will find it neces- 
sary, at their next Ainiual meeting, to take measures to secure a lot for 
these two houses, or they will be liable to pay rent on the land where 
they are located. The lot on which they now stand is not engaged for 
any definite time; and the district is liable to be called upon, any day, 
to remove them. 

Your committee found the High school house in a very bad coudi- 
tion, and immediately took measures to have it papered, painted dtc. 
This house should be occupied entirely by the High school, as this 
school has no writing room, and no suitable room for its apparatus. 
Its recitation rooms are also small, and very inconvenient. We hope 
measures will be taken, at an early day, to provide two school rooms 
for the two Primary schools which occupy the basement of this house. 
With these arrangements, the schools in this district would be very 
well provided for. 

In consequence of the great amount of glass broken out of the 
Park street house, by certain lawleis, vicious boys, w8 have been to

the expense of putting blinds on it ; and we feel confident they will 
be a saving in the end. 

In a growing community like our own, appropriations must be made 
yearly, for the purchase of lots, and for the erection of school houses, 
&.C., or the city must ultimately suffer the consequence, in the ignor- 
ance of its inhabitants, and in the punishment of crime. These de- 
mands should, therefore, be most cheerfully met. 

The appropriation for schools the past year, was very liberal, being 
7,.500*dollars. In addition to this, $229,-50 was received from the 
State Literary Fund. A larger amount will be necessary for the year 
to come, as five new schools were put in operation at the beginning of 
the last term. The appropriation for the year to come, should exceed 
that of the past by from 1,500 to 2,000 dollars, in order to keep the 
present number of schools in operation. 

On reviewing the labors of the past year, the committee regret that 
they have not been able to discharge the high responsibilities which 
have devoked upon them, with more satisfaction to themselves, and 
with greater benefit to the community. As this responsibility is soon 
to be assumed by a new board, we would earnestly urge the hearty co- 
operation of parents and friends, as well as the fostering care of the 
City- Government. No six men can properly discharge the duties of 
school committee, in a population like our own, without some adequate 
compensation from the city, or a loss to themselves. The policy of 
reducing the pay of men of business and talent, who have the charge 
of our public instruction, is at least, a very questionable policy. 

Could parents be made sensible of the benefit which would result 
from their occasional presence in the school room, they would be in- 
duced to find one hour in a month, at least, to spend in this manner. 
But the committee regret to say, that in all their visiting, they rarely 
have had the pleasure of meeting any of them there. The oc- 
casional visiting of parents and friends imparts a new stimulus, not only 
to pupils, but to teachers. We should realize that constant teaching 
is a laborious business, and that monotony in the school room is as 
enervating as in any other place. It is the duty of parents, of guar- 
dians, and of friends, to impress upon the minds of children and youth, 
the importance of education, of good behavior, and of punctuality ;

and to stimulale and encourage them by their occasional presence. 
The following table will give some further idea of the present state 
of our schools.

REPORT 



Of the Committee on Commons. 

The Amoskeag Manufacturing Co., in consideration of one dollar, 
conveyed by Deed, Jan. 25, 1848, to the City of Manchester, Con- 
cord Square ; also by another Deed, of the same date, and for the 
same consideration, conveyed to said City, Tremont and Merrimack 
Squares. Both conveyances specify. That said city shall never 
alienate or convey said land to any person or corporation, nor occupy 
the same with any buildings, or private or public roads, or rail roads, 
but shall forever keep and maintain the same as public grounds or 
squares, and keep the same free from all filth, dirt, and rubbish of ev- 
ery kind : That said City shall, within one year, dig up and carry 
awajthe stumps on said squares, and fill up the holes, and grade the 
same to a smooth and level or undulating surface, and sow the same 
with grass seed, and never permit said squares, or any portion of them, 
to be ploughed or dug up, except for ornamenting said squares. 

The Deed of Concord square specifies, (in addition to the above,) 
that said City shall, within one year, plant around said square, two 
rows of Maple and Elm trees, intermingled, including in said rows 
the trees already there ; and shall afterwards re-plant said trees as of- 
ten as any of them shall die or be broken ; and set on said square 
and around the reservoir in the same, such other trees and shrubs as 
good taste and culture may require. That said City shall make suita- 
ble gravel walks around said square, between said rows of trees, and 
across said square, in such directions as the loot travel of the citizens 
may require, and maintain the same, together with the reservoir, free 
from aH obstructions or rubbish whatever ; and that said City shall, with-

ill said fence, four large gates at the places where gates now are, and 
suitable openings for tlie ingress and egress of the citizens. The 
Deed of Merrimack and Tremont squares, specifies that within one 
year, the bank on the pond in Merrimack square, shall be smoothed 
off and graded and sown with grass seed, and that two rows of Ma- 
ple and Elm trees intermingled, be planted on the north, west, and 
south sides ; and shall afterwards be re-planted as often as any of them 
may die or be broken down. 

That said City shall, from time to time, as the citizens may require, 
make suitable graveled walks within and around Tremont and Merri- 
mack squares, and maintain the same, together with the pond on saiu 
Merrimack square, free from all dirt, filth, obstructions, or rubbish 
whatever. That said City shall, within five years, remove the fence 
now around Merrimack square, and erect and hereafter maintain an 
iron fence, of a handsome pattern, in place of the same; and hence- 
forth maintain around Tremont square, a handsome and substantial 
fence, either of wood or iron; and make in each and all of said fences, 
around both of said squares, suitable gates and openings for the in- 
gress and egress of the citizens. These Deeds were accepted by the 
City Council ; and xMay last an appropriation made for the improve- 
ment of said Commons, and the joint standing Committee on Com- 
mons, authorized to spend it in such manner as they should deem 
proper. Tlie amount expended by the Committee, as per bills and 
receipts rendered the City, is •'^-jGl,'-!;?

The whole expenditure has been made under the entire supervision 
of the Committee, in setting trers upon Concord, Tremont and Mer- 
rimack squares, grading, grassing, constructing gravel walks, and re- 
pairing fences, gates, &c., on Concord and Merrimack squares ; and 
in such manner as to meet all the conditions of tiic Deeds for the 
present. The Committee can but express their gratification at the 
promptness of the citizens, generally, in observing the rules and reg-

Public Squares what no city in the country, of our age and size, can 
boast of.

EIVGINEER'S REPORT. 



To the Hon. Mayor and Aldermen. 

GENTLEMEif : — The Report of the Chief Engineer of the Fire 
Department, for the current year, is necessarily brief. The condi- 
tion of the Fire Apparatus belonging to the City, is substantially the 
same as last year, and I refer to last year's Report. 

The City has furnished two new Engine Houses — one on Chesnut 
street, for Massabesic Engine Co. No. 4, and one on Manchester 
street, for Torrent Engine Co. No. 5, and the Hook and Ladder Co. 
No. 1. A new Carriage has also been obtained for the Hook and 
Ladder Co. 

The whole Fire Department has proved itself to be in good and ef- 
ficient working condition, at every fire during the past year. 

February, 1849. Wm. C. CLARKE, Chief Engineer. 



TO PERSONS HAVING CLAIMS AGAINST THE CITY. 

It is very desirable that bills presented for payment, should specify 
for what the articles sold were for; and when for labor, where it was 
performed — with proper dates — and approved by the person or per- 
sons contracting the same, and then presented to the City Clerk on or 
before the 24th day of each month. 

Bills allowjed monthly, are payable at the City Treasurer's ofRce on 
the first day of each month, unless the first day should come on 
Sunday. 

If Persons would be more careful in specifying particulars in their 
bills, it would enable the .Finance Committee to prepare the Annua! 
Report with less trouble. 

J. S. T. CUSHING, City Clerk.
