FINANCE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. 7 

In relation to the accounts of the late City Treasurer, the 
following statement is submitted : — 

The undersigned were, in the month of May last, a ma- 
jority of the Joint Standings Committee on Finance of the 
city of Manchester, and examined the books of J. G.Cilley, 
City Treasurer, at the expiration of his term of office in 
May. 1849: We reported the result of our investigation 
to the City Council. 

We have also examined the foregoing report of the present 
Joint Standing Committee on Finance of the account of J. G 
Cilley, late City Treasurer, and find the same correct. 

We have also re-examined the books of the late Treasurer 
and have discovered an error in our report of May last, 
amounting to the sum of $72,70. 

At the time we examined the books of the late Treasurer, 
they were not posted, neither had the Treasurer made his 
report, both of which should have been done before we ex- 
amined the books. 

We have delayed the matter until the latest day before 
the printing of the Annual Report, hoping that the late 
Treasurer would rectify the error, and promptly pay this 
balance in his hands to his successor in office, which would 
have precluded the necessity of this statement.

ALMS-HOUSE REPORT. 



To the City Council : — 

The Overseers of the Poor of the City of Manchester 
herewith present their report for the year, ending February 
1, 1850. 

The whole number of persons that have been asisted dur- 
ing the past year are 462. Of which number 303 are for- 
eigners, 157 Americans ; 18 having settlements in this city 
and 32 having a settlement in other towns in this State, and 
412 have no settlement in the United States. 

The whole number of deaths at the Alms and Pest house 
during the year past, has been 14, of the following diseases : 

Delirium Tremens, 1 

Fever, 2 

Old age, 1 

Dropsy, 1 

Cholera, 5 

Dysentery, 1 

Small Pox, 3 

Eight of the above number were Americans, 1 English 
and 5 Irish — two of them paupers belonging to the city, and 
12 county paupers. 

Number of paupers admitted at the Alms-house during 
the year 1848, were 87. 

Number admitted during the year 1849, were 182. 

Number of convicts committed at the house of correction 
the past year were 46. Committed second time 5. Run aw&] 
12. Sentence commuted (5. The remainder serving out 
the time for which they were committed. 

The house on the Davis farm has been used the most part 
of the year past as a Hospital and pest house, and has not 
been fitted up for a house of correction as recommended by 



ALMS HOUSE REPORT. 75 

the preceeding Board of Overseers. As there has been much 
sickness in the city dining the past year, and as it was deem- 
ed imprudent, if not dangerous, to put those attacked with 
malignant and contagious diseases, in the same building, and 
in connection with the paupers remaining at all times at the 
alms-house thereby exposing them to the danger of infection, 
sickness, and death ; necessity has therefore, in a measure, 
compelled us to make use of that house for the above pur- 
pose. Should the same causes remain, it would seem ex- 
pedient and for the interest of the inhabitants of the city, 
that some suitable place be prepared or built at or near the 
aims or pest house, where criminals can be confined and be 
compelled to labor as a punishment for their crimes.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



To the Mayor and Aldermen of .the City of Manchester 

In compliance with the statute of the State of New 
Hampshire, requiring an annual report of the condition, 
progress and general character of our Public Schools, togeth- 
er with such general remarks and suggestions in relation to 
them, as may seem necessary, the committee would beg 
leave to submit the following :— 

There has been no change during the present school year. 
as it regards the number of our public schools, their peculiar 
character or grade, or as to the entire number of teachers 
employed. 

The committee were of the opinion both from the testi- 
mony of the teachers and others interested, as well as their 
own convictions, that a division of the year, (in Dist. No. 2) 
into four equal terms of eleven weeks each, would be far 
more satisfactory and profitable, than the former unequal di- 
vision into three. They have therefore made the above 
change ; and in order to carry it out without interuption and 
that the long vacation may be had during the month of Au- 
gust, they would recommend that the school year, so far as 
the division into terms is concerned, commence on the first 
Monday in September. 

A few changes in our teachers have taken place. Most of 
these, however, have been voluntary, or from circumstances 
beyond the control of the committee. They have also the 
; leasing assurance that they have in most instances been ver\ 
fortunate in their selections to fill these vacancies. In mak- 
ing these selections the committee have generally, all other 
things being equal, given the preference to our own citizens. 

In our examination ofteachers, we have endeavored, not 
only to satisfy ourselves of their knowledge of the branches 
required to be taught, bat of their ability to teach, and to 
regulate the internal affairs of the school room. Iu regard 
to our old teachers, we have, in B great measure, depended 
for the former, on the examinations of our predecessors in 
office, but in all instances, for the latter, upon our own pel 



REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 79 s 

sonal observation in the school room. And vvc are happy to 
state that, with very few exceptions, this com se has been 
satisfactory to us, and highly creditable to our teachers. 
The whole number of public schools in this city is twenty- 
nine. Twenty-one of which, arc within the limits of District 
No. 2, and are continued during the year. In these twenty- 
one schools, twenty-seven teachers are employed, three male, 
and twenty-four females. The other eight schools out of 
district No. L 2, are only continued a portion of the year, with 
a female teacher, during the summer, and a male during the 
winter terms. These schools vary as to length, being from 
five to nine months in each year. 

District No. 1. 

The school in this District does not appear to the commit- 
tee to be in so forward a condition as their opportunities 
would lead us to expect ; and we feel compelled to remark, 
that in our belief, this arises in a great degree from a want, 
of interest and unanimity of feeling among -the parents \ 
and a want of co-operation on their part, with those having 
the charge of their schools. There are other schools in this 
city to which this remark will equally apply. We feel con- 
fident that could such parents and guardians see the practi- 
cal bearing and operation of influences so deleterious to the 
prosperity of the schools and the welfare of their children, 
they would at once change their course jn this respect, and 
heartily co-operate with the committee in their attempts to 
elevate the standard and usefulness of their schools. 

District No. 3* 

This school has made very commendable progress. Their 
house, however, is not sufficiently large. 40 or 50 scholars 
within so small a compass, with the ceiling so low that the 
stove funnel is almost in contact with their heads, furnish an 
atmosphere any tiling but favorable to intellectual effort. 
This is a fault not confined alone to this district, and one to 
which the committee would invite the attention of the inhab- 
itants of the various Districts out of No. 2. 

District ]\o.4L. 

This school holds a very favorable position in regard to 
the attainments of its pupils. A hearty co-operation on the 



80 REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 

part of parents and guardians, and a union of action with the 
committee and teachers, might render this one of the first 
schools in the city. 

District \o. 5. 

The school in this District is rather small and is not so 
forward as some other schools, lint still the school appears 
well and is evidently making a very commendable improve- 
ment. 

District Wo. 0. 

This is decidedly one of the most interesting, and for their 
opportunity, the most rapidly advancing school in the city. 
We have been peculiary fortunate in our selection of teach- 
ers for this school, and by their well directed efforts, together 
with the hearty co-operation of both parents and pupils, this 
school has exhibited to us an enthusiasm and interest which 
we have not witnessed in any other. We only regret that 
want of money renders its duration necessarily so short. 

District I¥0. 7. 

This is one of the largest schools out of District No. L 2. 
Indeed the number of pupils is entirely too large for the 
house they are obliged to occupy. Consequently this pre- 
sents an obstacle in the way of the greatest amount of use- 
fulness to be derived from the school. Notwithstanding 
this they are at the present time earning an enviable rank 
among our schools. 

District No.S. 

This is the smallest school in the city and their house cor- 
responds with the size of the school. Their teacher, during 
the winter, though inexperienced, has rendered himself use- 
ful as shown by the commendable improvement of the 
school under his instruction. 

District *So. !». 

This is also a small school. And could they only borrow 
a liiili- of the enthusiasm and interest of their younger sister. 
No. 6, the) would attain a higher rank among our schools. 

District No. *->. 

In this District are embraced all the schools o\' the Cit) 
proper together with the schools at the head of the Falls unci 



REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 81 

at Towlesvillc. They are divided into four distinct grades or 
classes, viz ; Primary, Middle, Grammar and High Schools. 
Children of four years of age are admitted into our primary 
Schools where they are instructed in the rudiments of read- 
ing and spelling, after which they are admitted to the middle 
Schools in which they attend to reading, spelling, and study 
the elements of Arithmetic and Geography, preparatory for 
admission to the Grammar Schools. 

Our Grammar Schools two in number, under the instruc- 
tion of their present able and efficient teachers, will compare 
well with any schools of the same grade in the Slate. In 
these schools, attention is given to all those branches of Eng- 
lish education to be found in the District school, while a pre- 
paratory course of instruction for the High School, is rigidly 
enforced. These schools during the past year have attained 
a high rank, while their teachers both Principals and Assist- 
ants, have exhibited those rare qualifications so desirable to 
success. 

Your committee most cheerfully speak in terms of special 
commendation of the High School. From personal observa- 
tion we are happy in being able to say that great improve- 
ment has marked the progress of this school during the past 
year. The Principal, Mr. Amos Hadley, has fully met the 
expectations warranted by his reputation as an instructor and 
his acknowledged intellectual attainments. We have been 
equally fortunate in our selection of his Assistants. Miss C. 
C. Johnson and Miss Julia A. Knowlton, in the opinion of 
your committee,possess those rare qualifications indispensible 
to the success of the efficient teacher; and have acquitted 
themselves in a manner honorable to the city and with great 
usefulness to the school. This school is distinguished for its 
good government, and for its thorough course of instruction. 
In short, the High School furnishes a very desirable and rare 
opportunity to all those parents who wish to give their chil- 
dren a practical and thorough education. Its present high 
position is creditable to the instructors and honorable to the 
pupils. It furnishes advantages that would loose nothing by 
the comparison with our best academical institutions. 

In this school are taught Greek, Latin, French, and the 
higher branches of English literature. 

The house is inconvenient and wholly unadapted to the 
wants of the school. It was originally designed and is weh" 
fitted for a grammar school, and in the opinion of the com- 



82 REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 

mittee the time has arrived when a third Grammar school is 
needed in this city. We therefore recommend that an ap- 
propriation be made at the commencement of the ensuing 
year, sufficient for the erection of a school house adapted to 
the wants, and suitable lor the accommodation of the High 
School, and that a third Grammar school be put in operation 
in the house on Lowell street. We also recommend that at 
least fifteen hundred dollars in addition to the sum raised last 
year be raised for the support of our schools the ensuing 
year. 

Your committee would, but for the length of their report, 
speak of each teacher as their several merits would seem to 
require, but must close with some general remarks. 

In all our schools we believe there has been a steady and 
commendable progress. Most of our teachers have been long 
tried and faithful servants in the cause of education — whose 
motto is "onward" till they shall have reached the perfection 
of their art. With such teachers we cannot suppose that 
our schools will remain stationary. We believe that <t;ir 
schools, as a whole, maintain a rank at the present lime 
which they never before attained. We can also recommend 
with confidence our present efficient board of teachers to the 
favorable consideration of our successors in office, as well as 
to the parents and guardians of the children and youth com- 
mitted to their care. 

Several of our schools hade been thin'd at times during the 
present year from fear of small pox. This ought not to be, 
and that all might feel secure, the committee would recom- 
mend that such regulations be adopted as would oblige every 
child presented for admission into any school in District No. 
2, to produce evidence of having been vaccinated before their 
admission. Should any be unable to comply with this regu- 
lation, we would recommend that it be done at the public 
expense. Should this recommendation be complied with, 
parents might feel just as secure in regard to their children 
in the school room as at any other place, so far as fear of the 
contagious influence of small pox is concerned. 

Setts of Fowle's cheap outline Maps have been procured 
for the two Middle Schools on Spring street, for the schools 
at the Falls and at Towlsvillc; also for the use of the recita 
tion rooms in each of the Grammar Schools. 

A rigid economy has been enjoined upon the Committee in 
consequence of the amount of school money raised, not cor- 



REPORT OP THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 83 

responding with the increased number of schools and conse- 
quent increased liabilities. 

The Committee consequently have employed no distinct 
teacher of penmanship during the present year, and this 
branch, though attended to, to some extent, under the direc- 
tion of the teachers in the various schools of District No. 2, 
has not received that attention which its importance de- 
mands. In conclusion, your Committee would again suggest 
that a considerably increased appropriation of school money, 
for the coming year, will be absolutely demanded, in order to 
keep our present system in operation,and meet the increasing 
wants of our growing community. The money raised for the 
support of our Public Schools, and for elevating their charac- 
ter to the highest possible standard. should never be looked 
upon in the light of a public burden or charity. 

Is there an inhabitant of this City whose circumstances, 
wiiether he has children or not, would be as favorable with- 
out our schools as with them ? Would it be as well for any 
one were all the children of this city to grow up in ignorance, 
with none of the capabilities and restraints of education ? 
Would property then be as valuable as now ? Would there 
be equal safety ? How long would a respectable man be 
willing to live in such society ? No! Setting entirely aside 
the immediate good flowing in upon ourselves through our 
own children and the children of our neighbors, we should 
rather look upon the money we pay for this purpose, like that 
spent for navies and fortifications, a means for self-defence.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON COMMONS. 



To His Honor the Mayor and City Council : 

Gentlemen, — The Joint Standing Committee on Com- 
mons and Cemetery, to whom is intrusted the superintend- 
ance of the City Commons, ask leave to present their An- 
nual Report. 

Of our Commons and Squares it may justly be said that 
they are the pride and boast of our City ; and while they 
speak loudly in praise of the Company who made those lib- 
eral donations, may the interest manifested by the City Gov- 
ernment, to preserve and keep them in order be equally com- 
mendable. Few, if any of our sister Cities, can boast of so 
fine openings for the health and comfort of its inhabitants as 
the City of Manchester, serving as ventilators by throwing 
off the close and impure air, and giving free circulation to 
the mountain breeze, with its invigorating and healthy action 
upon the whole system. These Commons so highly prized, 
we trust as now, will ever command the attention and re- 
ceive the fostering care of the City Government. 

Your Committee the present year have endeavored to dis- 
charge their duty by repairing and ornamenting as far as the 
means at their command would permit. 

On Tremont square, the walks have been graveled and 
graded ; on Concord square, the fences have been repaired 
and white-washed ; Merrimack square has required a large 
expenditure ; much complaint had been made, and justly 
too, on account of the stagnant and impure water in the 
pond ; to remedy this evil so justly complained of, your Com- 
mittee found it would be necessary to draw off the water, 
and clean out the filthwhich had accumulated. To accomplish 
this object, a drain or sewer must be laid from the pond to 
connect with the main sewer on Elm Street. The appro- 
priations for Commons the present year being but two hun- 
dred and fifty dollars, the object so desirable could not be 
accomplished without further appropriations, these were ask- 
ed for and granted to the amount of two hundred and sev- 
enty dollars. A drain or sewer, with proper gates, was laid 
eight feet below high water level, the water drawn off, the 
bottom of the pond filled up with sand and gravel, and a 
clean and level bottom made, the banks graded, and the stag- 



"H REPORT OF COMMITTEE OX COMMONS. 

nant pool converted into a pure, clear and healthy stream of 
water. The drain and sewers which had heretofore emptied 
into this pond were cut off and turned into the common 
sewer, on Merrimack Street. The grounds were ploughed, 
and partially graded, and a portion planted, in order that 
this Square like Concord, might be brought under a higher 
state of cultivation. With this expenditure your Commit- 
tee have reason to think the citizens well pleased. Much 
still remains to be done on Merrimack Square, to make it 
what it ought to be, from its natural advantages, — the most 
beautiful Square in the city. 

Your Committee Jiave caused to be set out on the differ- 
ent Commons the past season, 197 trees, but owing to the 
severe drought a large portion of these trees died. Your 
Committee trust that liberal appropriations will be made the 
coming year for the completion of Merrimack Square, and 
for ornamenting and repairing the others. 

Your Committee have expended, as per bills rendered, 
on Tremont Square, graveling and grading walks and setting 

trees, $ 153 25

ing fences and setting trees, 58 94

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON "VALLEY. " 



To His Honor the Mayor and City Council : 

The joint standing Committee on the Valley, ask leave to 
report. 

The superintendance of the Valley has heretofore been 
entrusted to a special Committee, separate and distinct from 
the city government. In May last, it was deemed expedi- 
ent to commit this business to the City Council. In pursu- 
ance of this object, a resolution was passed transferring the 
funds to the City Treasury, to be expended under the di- 
rection of a joint special Committee for that purpose. In 
accordance with this resolution, the books and papers were 
put into the hands of said Committee ; and the funds, 
amounting to six hundred and thirty-nine dollars and fifty 
three cents, placed in the hands of the city treasurer. By 
the wise and prudent foresight of the donors of this rural 
spot, it was given by deed to the town — now city — of Man- 
chester, with certain conditions, restrictions and regulations; 
among which was "that whatever money should from lime 
to time, be received from the sale of lots, should be expen- 
ded for the purpose of improving and ornamenting the 
grounds." 

Your Committee feeling the importance and even sacred- 
ness of the trust committed to them, have endeavored in all 
their expenditures to have reference to this original design. 
They have therefore seen that the hedges around the lot 
have been properly trimmed and kept in good order, and 
have the pleasure to report them in a healthy and thriving 
condition. 

They have caused many new paths and walks, which had 
had been laid out by the former Committee, to be graded 
and built the present season, and the old ones to be kept in 
good repair. The trees have been trimmed, and the decayed 
ones and some others that stood in the paths and lots have 
been removed. They have caused permanent stone steps 
to be placed in three of the principal paths or crossings, 
leading from the west to the eastern side of the grounds, 
across the Valley, where the rise was so steep that the paths 
were continually washing away by the heavy rains. They 
have caused two handsome bridges with stone abutments, to 
be built over the stream, to connect the paths or crossings 
where these steps have been laid. They have caused guide- 



:>0 REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON VALLEY. 

boards, with the names of the avenues r walks, and paths, 
neatly painted upon them, to be placed in suitable positions, 
directing to those avenues, walks and paths. They have 
caused the fences to be thoroughly repaired around the 
ground and outside the hedges, which had fallen into decay. 
Your Committee have had in-contemplation the erection of 
a handsome gate-way over the main entrance on Chestnut 
street, with a building on either side — one suitable for a 
hearse house, and the other for depositing tools and imple- 
ments used about the grounds — a plan of which has been 
drawn by Asa O. Colby, Esq., and is in the hands of the 
Committee. It is hoped that this or some other plan may be 
adopted the coming season. 

They would further beg leave to recommend that a public 
tomb be built as a receiving tomb, for the temporary deposite 
of the dead whose friends may at some future time wish to 
remove them. This would be a source of income, as well 
as convenience. 

Your Committee regarding this as a spot held sacredly 
dear by the citizens of this city — a place which should not 
be desecrated to any unhallowed p>urpose — but whose quiet 
and order might reign undisturbed, — they early obtained the 
appointment of Mr. G. W. Wilson-, who has charge of the 
grounds, as Constable and Special Police, for this particular 
purpose. 

Here lie the silent dead ! Around this hallowed spot clus- 
ter the affections of fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, hus- 
bands, wives and friends. Here nature has been profuse in 
bestowing her choicest beauties. Here gently glides the 
ch-rystal brook — murmuring as it meanders over its pebbly 
bed, while darts along the sportive golden trout. Here 
gushes out the cool refreshing spring, pure as from the well 
spring of life. Here towers the lofty pine ; there stands the 
majestic oak with out-spread arms, over-shadowing all this 
peaceful glen — while affection sits on yonder seat, and weeps 
for dear departed friends. Here memory, fond memory, 
lingers long, while gentle zephyrs fan the fainting soul and 
waft the heart-felt prayer to Cod. Here in this secluded, 
peaceful vale, lies withered the tender bud of a fond moth- 
er's affection, the hope of a father's declining years, and the 
proud ambition of sterner manhood's aim. "Here the wick- 
ed cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest." 

The whole number of deaths us reported to the under- 
taker of funerals, Mr. J. J. Straw, for the year ending Feb-
