REPORT 

OF THE 

JOINT STANDING COMMITTEE ON FINANCE. 



The Joint Standing Committee on Finance, in compliance 
with the provisions of the 13th Section of "An Ordinance es- 
tablishing a system of accountability in the expenditures of the 
City," requiring that they " shall, in the month of February, 
prepare and lay before the City Council, a statement of all the 
Receipts and Expenditures of the preceding financial year, giv- 
ing in detail the amount of appropriations and expenditures for 
each department, accompanied with a schedule of the property, 
real and personal, belonging to the City, and the valuation 
thereof, and the amount of the City Debt," — submit to the City 
Council their Annual Report for the Financial year ending 
January 31st, 1853. 

The Committee are happy to show, that the expenditures of 
the year have been less than for either of the two preceding 
years, and much within the sum of appropriations, notwithstand- 
ing the amounts necessarily expended in re-building bridges 
destroyed by the freshet last spring, (one in district No. 2, two 
in district No. 4, one in district No. 6, and one in district 
No. 9,) and for other permanent improvements, such as Sewers, 
Amoskeag Falls bridge, Gas Fixtures, &c. 

It will be seen that the City debt has been somewhat reduced, 
and that there is sufficient balance in the Treasury, with what 
may be received from taxes remaining unpaid, to meet all prob- 
able expenses, until new taxes shall be assessed. 

We find that all bills which have been paid, have been approv- 
ed by competent authority, and that the books and accounts of 
the City Clerk, and Treasurer, have been faithfully and correct- 
ly kept, and that all moneys due the City have been collected 
or accounted for. 



EXPENDITURES. 



The expenditures for the year (including the payments on the 
City Debt) charged to their several appropriations, have been

It has been tin- object of the overseers of the poor, the past 
year, to commence permanent improvements of the tana rather 
than to ; itc income; and to accomplish this they 

have In ill ■ firsl place required the City Teams to be empl 
when doI a the farm, in procuring the large quantities of ma- 

nure from the Btreetsand vaults of the city. In doing this the farm has 
not only been ^benefitted mucli more than the exp< oseof 
the manure, but much expense has been saved th 

ior performed principally by 
those who have been - al to the house of correction. 

We are of the opinion that the project which has been commenc- 
ed, of keeping cows on the farm, will, when fully carried out to 
stent of the facilities of the farm for so doing, prove a judi- 
cious and profitable one. 

There are large quantities of Land owned by the city which now 
produce nothing of any value, that with very little expense can be 
made good pasture land ; tenacres of which have been broken and 
worked the past year. When these waste lands are brought into 
a proper state of cultivation, and those which are new cultivated 
properly manured, the farm may he a source of much profit to the 
city. 

The farm the past yearhas produced well, and given good prom- 
isc of what it can he made to do under an improved state of cul- 
tivation. 

It will he seen that those sent to the House of Correction 
outnumber the paupers at the farm. Arrangements have been 
made the past year to keep the paupers separate from the con 
lossible ; and to have the latter Lcepl al labor in all i 
when practicable. 

In former years the county have refused to pay to the cit] 
full 8 expended tty paupers, hut the present year 

overseers were determined that no expenditure should be made 
that could not reasonably lie repaidby the county, and toinsisl up- 
on the payment of the same in lull. They have b i SsfuJ, 



91 



and received from the county the full amount of expenditures by 
the city, so far as they have been presented.

"VALLEY" CEMETERY EEPURT. 



To His .7; ' or, and the City Council of the City of 

Manchester : — 

Your committee do not deem it necessary to make an ex- 
tended report, since the "Valley" Is so easy of access to the 
public, and is a place of so much resort, that all may and most 
do visit the same, and are therefore qualified to judge of the 
general views and proceedings of your committee in relation 
to the general management of the grounds. 

No new arrangements in relation to the grounds have been 
made, but much has been done by the proprietors of Lots to 
beautify and ornament the same; many Lots have been in- 
closed by Iron Fences — monuments erected, &c, which add 
much to the beauty of the Valley. 

The City Tomb commenced last year has been finished and 
enclosed by an Iron Fence, and proves to be what your com- 
mittee anticipated, viz : a source of profit, and to meet the 
wants of the public — the rates being fixed so low that all may 
avail themselves of the use thereof without being burdened, and 
still meet the expenses of the same. 

There has been a rapid sale of Lots during the year ; 07 lots 
having been sold and mostly paid for, the whole amount of 
cash received during the year is as follows : 

Sale of Lots 951 

Wood sold 7 58

l I L3 






93 

No appropriations were made for the benefit of the Valley 
last year, yet the revenue arising from the sale of Lots, has 
been ample to meet all the expenses accruing and pertaining 
thereto, and your committee believe no appropriation will be 
necessary the coming year, unless it should be thought neces- 
sary to make some improvement on the Fence. 

Your Committee would recommend the establishment of a 
Xursery in connexion with the Valley, for the cultivation and 
rearing of suitable Trees and shrubbery for the convenience 
of all owners of Lots, for shade or ornaments, to be furnished 
at a reasonable rate. 

The New Cemetery not being wanted for immediate use and 
being in a state of cultivation, was leased for the last year for 
$20, and may be for the year to come ; at no distant day it will 
be needed, as the valley is fast filling up and more room will 
be called for. 

Your Committee feel confident that the " Valley," so favor- 
ably formed by Nature for a retreat, and made sacred by the 
relics of many a loved one deposited in its bosom, (for who has 
not dropped a tear over the resting place of friends departed) 
will continue to be guarded with a watchful care, and preserv- 
ed, as it well deserves to be, a peaceful and quiet resting-place 
for generations yet to come.

CHIEF ENGINEER'S BEPOBT. 



To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Manchester: — 

The ordinance of the City "Relative to the Fire Depart- 
ment," makes it my duty to report to you in the month of Feb- 
ruary "the condition of all the Fire apparatus belongin 
the City." 

I do not conceive it necessary for me under this ordinance 
to enter into any specific enumeration of such property, or to 
state its value to you, but simply to state to y lition and 

fitness for effective service. 

All the Machines belonging to the City are in good working 
condition, and well supplied with apparatus. 

Nos. 4 and 5 ha 1 i been fully repaired during the past year. 
No. 1 should have some small ornamental repairs, and then 
will in no whit be behind the others. 

These machines, and all the others ordinarily acting with our 
fire department, including the Hook and Ladder and Bose Com- 
panie lied to them who are intelligent, ener- 

getic, faithful and efficient. 

They are resolute and determined, but obedient to discipline 
and entirely submissive to authority. 

The only strife among them Beems fco be, who shall best dis- 
charge his duty, and render th< I most effectual ser- 
vice at a fire. 

ich praise cannot :

minatioD which

95 

The whole Fire Department is believed to be in sound work- 
ing order. During the past year the Engineers have endeav- 
ored to bring into it more system, and a better economy in re- 
gard to supplies and repairs. They have to some extent suc- 
ceeded ; and hope that more time will show still more success. 
The firemen should be paid liberally ', but order, regularity, 
exactness, and strict accountability should characterise the de- 
partment.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE, 



THE DISTRICTS. 



Originally, or, at least, long before many of the pres 
Ltanta of Ma r were resident- here, the town was 

divided into four school districts, each of which, tl 
embracing a large extent of territory aall in the number 

of its scholars, and limited in the means of support!] 
school. The first was call Falls District," and included 

the portion of the town lying on the river north of the pr 
location of G] reet. The "Meeting House Distri 

embraced Hallsville, Bakersville, and the section of the town in 
the vicinity of the city farm. The present districts, IS 
and 9, constituted the " Calef District," and Nos. i and 5, and 
a part of 3, composed the " Harvey District." 

In 1810, the Falls District was divided " between Mr. Ra 
and John Stark, 4th's." Various changes were made in the 
other disl i m time to time, — of which it is not easy to find 

a record, — until! appears to have been eight 

districts in the town. This year, it was voted at the annual 
i m to reorganize the school districts, and a committee was 
appointed for that purpose. The following year their report 
was accepted. Nine districts wer iade. In No. _' i- 

now included Towlesville, with a section north of ii. which then 

composed No. 6, while No. 6, as now constituted, belonged to 
Nos. 7. 8, and '.'. With these exceptions, and perhaps a tew 
other-; of less importance, the <i ; -main unchanged. 

We are not aware thai any alteration i< necessary in the 
arrangement, unless it i ; thought expedient to annex •• Wilson 
Hill" in No. 7, io District No. -J. 



97 

NUMBER ONE. 

This school is small, and destitute of that animation which 
ensures advancement. The scholars are young and diffident, 
and, in an examination before strangers, do not probably appear 
so well as when questioned only by their teacher. This year 
they have made good progress, and given us the pleasure of 
reporting more favorably than former committees have done. 
But they do not yet rank above the average of scholars 
having the advantages which they possess. They need 
earnestness and more close application. The deportment of 
the school has been unobjectionable. 

The summer school was taught by Miss Julia A. Baker — the 
winter, by John G. Lane. Both succeeded well, were satisfac- 
tory to the committee, and, so far as our knowledge extends, 
quite acceptable to the district. 



NUMBER THREE. 



The summer school was visited only once by the committee, 
the school closing before its prescribed time, in consequence of 
the illness of the teacher. Of the progress of the scholars 
during the session, we cannot judge. The teacher, Miss E. 
B. Stark, was not without experience in the school room ; she 
was earnest in her instructions, and had the full confidence of 
the scholars and of the parents. In her register, Miss Stark 
says " the scholars have been orderly and attentive, obedient 
and well disposed, and many of the parents are deeply interest- 
ed in the welfare of the school." 

Mr. G. W. I. Carpenter, the teacher in the winter session, was 
enthusiastic and willing to engage in hard labor for the benefit 
of those under his instruction. He made an effort to inspire 
them with confidence, and to render them prompt and energet- 
ic in whatever they were required to do. The school made 
very commendable advancement in many of the studies pur- 
7 



98 



sued. The committee noticed an improvement in enunciation, 
and in Arithmetic and Geography. In reading, the lower 
classes deserve more credit than the older scholars 



NUMBER FOUR. 



The summer school in this district was taught by Miss Har- 
riet Burnham, a lady of experience in teaching, and admirably 
qualified to manage and instruct children. The school was al- 
ways quiet and orderly. At the final examination the scholars 
did not appear so well as at other times. 

The winter term was taught by Mr. J. W. Clark, a very suc- 
cessful instructor. As his school, at the time of making the 
report, has four weeks to continue, the committee have not yet 
made their second examination of the scholars. 



NUMBER FIVE. 

The people in this district often said, during the summer, 
" we have a good school," or " we arc satisfied with the school," 
and certainly the committee would not desire a i: ^ta- 

ble teacher than Miss, Shattuck. She appeared to be accurate 
in her instructions, and energetic in the performance of her 
duties. 

Mr. Wm. P. Merrill, a resident in the district, 'ted 

for the winter term. lie has been strict in his discipline and 
faithful in his teaching. We think the Bchool lias done well. 
With one exception there has been nothing to disturb its har- 
mony, and this ease was so managed as to produce no evil re- 
sult. The scholars have generally been attentive, orderly and 
obedient. 



NUMBER SIX. 

In this district are Letter scholars than can be found in any 
other except Nos. 2 and 7. This year, however, they have not 
made that advancement which we were led to expect. We 
were unfortunate, both summer and winter, in the selection of 
teachers. Miss Ayer was chosen for the summer term. She 
did not have that control of the scholars, which it is necessary 
for the teacher to have, in order to keep a good school. The 
blame however, should not perhaps attach wholly to the teacher. 

Mr. S. D. Hill commenced the winter session, but had had 
no experience as a teacher, and proved inefficient in the man- 
agement of the school. No formal complaint was made against 
him ; indeed, so far as we know, a majority of the district would not 
ask for his removal, and the teacher had the good will of the 
scholars. But there was evidently a conviction that lie was not 
benefitting the scholars, and at the close of the 6th week, he 
resigned. His place was filled by the selection of James H . 
Fowler, a fine scholar, but not always sufficiently prudent as a 
teacher. The school appeared well when visited by the com- 
mittee, and was very quiet and studious. 

There was considerable dissatisfaction in the district,- and at 
the close of the 5th week, the school was discontinued. 



NUMBER SEVEN. 



Miss Martha D. Gregg had charge of the school in this dis- 
trict in the summer, and was very satisfactory to all interested. 
The winter term was commenced under the instruction of Mr. 
C. W. Levings, who failed in government, and consequently 
was unsuccessful as a teacher. He resigned at the close of 
the seventh week, and his place was filled by the choice of 
J. E. Bennett, an experienced teacher, under whose manage- 
ment the remaining six weeks passed away very quietly. 

This school is larsre and more advanced than the other 



100 

schools in town, except the high school. Quite a number of the 
scholars are pursuing the higher English branches. Here arc 
some very fine readers. 

A portion of the district, which has recently become popula- 
ted, is so situated as not to receive any benefit from the school. 
It will be necessary soon to take measures to remedy the 
evil. 



NUMBER EIGHT. 

The summer school in this district was of but little value to 
the scholars. Though the teacher possessed many commenda- 
ble qualities, she lacked the talent and energy requisite for the 
school-room. The teacher selected for the winter term, was a 
young man without experience, but possessing an active mind, 
a good degree of ambition, and more than the ordinary share 
of energy. The school has been quite small, but in point of 
improvement will compare favorably with other schools. Miss 
Rebecca Porter was the teacher for the summer term, and Mr 
Wm. E. Moore, in the winter. 



NUMBER NINE. 



Here we found a most excellent summer school, full of anirna- 
tion and earnestness. No teacher could be more devoted to 
her work than Miss Webster. As an appreciation of her merit, 
the committee were very glad to transfer her to a more laborious 
field of labor in one of the primary schools in No. 2. 

Mr. Giles succeeded very well in the winter school, the 
scholars manifesting a good degree of improvement. The 
people of the district, we think, were unanimous in their 
expression of satisfaction with Mr. (iilcs. 



101 
NUMBER TWO. 



In this district there are in operation twenty-four schools, in 
which are employed at this time, thirty-two teachers, besides 
the teacher of penmanship, and occasionally an instructor in 
vocal music. We can only allude to these, without any extend- 
ed remarks in regard to any school or teacher, except in the 
higher grades. 



PRIMARY SCHOOLS. 



There are twelve primary schools in the district, one of 
which was established the past term, to relieve the teachers of 
the Spring street and Lowell street schools, which were crowd- 
ed to excess. 

It is in charge of Miss Julia A. Brown, who is creating 
quite an interest among the scholars. The school contains 
about fifty, mostly Irish and French children. They are as 
quick and anxious to learn, and possess as much pride, as any 
scholars in the district. 



Park Street. There are two primary schools on this street, 
taught by Miss Lane and Miss Scott. In the first, there has 
been a marked improvement in the deportment of the scholars. 
Miss Scott was elected to the place she occupies, at the com- 
mencement of the summer term, and has not given the commitr 
tee any reason to regret the appointment. 

Merrimack Street. Miss Wier continues in the same 
place as last year. Her school in many respects is not so 
pleasant as others, and does not manifest that system which we 
wish might exist, and which, perhaps, any teacher would find 
it difficult to maintain in that school. 

Manchester Street. Here are two primary schools — 



102 

Brown's and Miss Stevens's. These teachers have occu- 
pied their places for two years, and as the children aim 

appear cheerful and orderly, Ave sue no reason to find fault with 
their management. 

ycoRD Street. Miss Young was elected to this school 
at the commencement of the summer term. The committee 
then disliked to reduce the number of good scholars in the 
school, as they were obliged to do in this election ; but 
they -would now be much more reluctant to lose a good teacher 
from the Concord street primary school. 

Bridge Street. Miss Lane has had charge of this school 
for so long a time, that she has fully established her authority, 
and no boy or girl would sooner disregard her commands, than 
those of the parent. 

Lowell Street. Miss Eaton was placed in one of the 

schools on Lowell street in June. She is an experienced teach- 

ud succeeds well with the school. Miss Webster has been 

in her school but a single term ; we have full confidence in her 

success, having known her in another district. 

Spring Street. Here are the two largest primary schools 
in the city, under the care of MissBodwell and Miss Patterson. 
Both schools appear neat and happy whenever the committee 
look in upon them, and really are so at other times. These 
teachers have been in the same rooms for several years. 



The course of study in the primary schools is — ]■ . from 

alphabet to the Primary School Reader — Geography^ Mitoh- 

. to the fortieth lesson — Ar'Ulmuiic, Tower's, to the one 

hundredth page, and the multiplication table. 



MIDDLK SCHOOLS 



These remain as they were reported last year in regard to 
: number and location, bul have nearly all changed te 
They occupy an important place in our system of schools. 



108 

It is in these that the first principles of study are inculcated — 
that the foundation for future scholars should be laid. The 
studies pursued in these schools arc — Arithmetic, through Tow- 
er's, and Colburn's to the tenth section — Qeogr<xphy, Mitchell's 
completed — History, Goodrich's to the fourth period, and 
reading and spelling. 

Park Street. This school was well managed by Miss 
Richardson during the first three terms of the year, and quite 
to our satisfaction by Miss Ayer, in Miss It.'s absence, the past 
term. Miss i\.yer has kept th'e school under good discipline, 
and applied herself faithfully to the work of teaching. 

Merrimack Street. Miss Bunton succeeded Miss Fowler, 
whom the committee were compelled to excuse because she had 
other engagements. Miss B. is improving in her management, 
and the past term her scholars have given a good account of 
themselves. In arithmetic she has some fine pupils — in geog- 
raphy the school is deficient. 

Concord Street. Miss Hall, who had the charge of 
this school for a long time, left it at the close of the fall term to 
commence the duties of a domestic sphere. While under her 
direction, it always had quick and attractive scholars, and gain- 
ed the reputation of being one of the best schools of its class. 
Miss TVoodworth, who succeeded well in a primary, had a 
severe task to govern this school, when she first undertook it. 
The deportment is not yet quite what we would like to have it. 

Bridge Street. This school is unfortunate in having had 
several teachers during the year. Miss Jackson succeeded 
Miss May in the summer, but at the expiration of the term 
was obliged to resign on account of ill health. Miss Shattuck 
was elected in her place, but was almost immediately transfer- 
reel to the high school. She was succeeded by Miss Baker, 
who has not met with that success which we were led to expect, 
from her experience in other schools. The school is not so for- 
ward as most of the others of this grade. 

Spring Street. Mrs. Brooks has the school which was 
under the control of Miss Plumer last year. It is in a pros- 



104 

porous condition, and commends itself and its teacher to a favor- 
able notice. 

Miss Brown is the only middle school teacher who has been 
in her place for more than a year. Her school ranks among 
the best of that class. 



TOWLESVILLE SCHOOL. 



Miss Eaton still continues at TTowlesville, and performs faith- 
fully the work which many male teachers could not do as well. 
The school is large and in some respects difficult to manage. It 
seems almost necessary that there should be two schools in that 
vicinity, of different grades. It would be an advantage to the 
scholar, and much easier for the teacher. The labor is now so 
great that it is difficult to find a teacher. 



FALLS SCHOOL. 



Miss Ingalls continues here — has a small, quiet school, gives 
thorough instruction, and preserves good order. " Her works 
praise her." 



INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL. 



This school was established in the winter term of last year to 
meet a want which has for a Long time existed in cm- system of 
schools. It affords advantages to a class of scholars who can 
attend but a few months in a year, and wish to pursue different 
branches of study from those prescribed for the other sohools. 
It is also adapted,to a class of scholars that come in from the 
country, who in some studies are amply qualified to enter the 

grammar school or even the high school, but are deficient in 



105 

others. Here is the place to make up this deficiency. This 
year, the committee made it exceedingly serviceable in another 
particular. Quite a number of large boys were members of 
the primary and middle schools, whom a female teacher found 
it hard to manage. These were removed to the intermediate, 
where they found more stern discipline in government and in- 
struction, which has been of much value to them. The school 
is one of the most important in our whole system, and in its 
government is not excelled. It is under the direction of Mr. 
Charles Aldrich, an indefatigable teacher, assisted by Miss 
Matilda Abbott. 



GRAMMAR SCHOOLS. 



The South Grammar School. This school has for seven 
years, from its first commencement, been in charge of A. M. 
Caverly, who now resigns. The committee, and the parents 
who send to the school, part with Mr. Caverly reluctantly. He 
has been a faithful and thorough instructor. He is always the 
same — possesses no eccentricities of character, and attempts 
nothing for mere show. The whole number of pupils who have 
been under his instruction within the period named, is about 
fifteen hundred — of this number one hundred and sixteen have 
entered the high school — 240 have gone from the school to the 
mills and other places of labor ; and seven, to the knowledge of 
the principal, and possibly more than that number, have died. 

The school has suffered the past year from the irregularity 
of its assistants, both of whom have been absent more or less, 
in consequence of ill health. To compensate for this loss and 
to afford facilities to a class of scholars who attend only in the 
winter, a third assistant,— -Mrs. Hill, formerly Miss Fowler, teach- 
er of the middle school on Merrimack street, — was employed 
for the past term. The regular assistants were Miss B. B. Shep- 
herd and Miss Clara J. Straw. 

We copy several paragraphs from a communication made by 



10G 

Mr. Caverly to the committee in relation to the school. It is 
applicable in many respects to the origin of the North Gram- 
mar £ - the schools generally in the city, i they 
existed a few years ago. 

" When I entered this school seven years ago, I found in at- 
tendance fourteen scholars. But the teachers of the various 
He schools were soon directed by the committee to send to 
this a certain proportion of their cumber. This brought togeth- 
er about fifty from those schools ; some good, and many 
whose habits and dispositions made them any thing but desirable 
materials to work upon. The first year we did not have suita- 
ble accommodations, but in that limited time occupied four 
different rooms, neither of which was fitted for the purpose it 
was made to serve. But an appropriation was early made — the 
present building erected and completed at the commencement 
of the second year, since which time we have been permanent- 
ly and pleasantly located. The first two years there were many 
obstacles in the way of success, which could not be easily re- 
moved. At that time, there was a great influx of population, 
and some families apparently thought but little of schools, or of 
the education of their children. The result was that many 
scholars were very irregular in their attendance, and truancy 
was of almost daily occurrence. Another obstacle but lit cl 
formidable, grew out of the want of a regular, prescribed course 
of study. Many scholars claimed the privilege of studying 
any branch to which their fancy might lead, regardless of pre- 
requisite qualifications; and in some instances the parents inter- 
fered, and it seemed almost necessary to yield to their wis 
against the dictates of reason. But the attention of the i 
mittce was early called to this subject, and a remedy provided, 
in the adoption of a uniform course of study, and the division 
of the school into a regular grade of classes. 

For the first thr | roportion of the accessions 

to the school was made up of those who had received no in- 

iction in the lower schools, but had just come to the city : and 

among this number were a few whose want of early training. 



107 

rendered them a source of as much annoyance to the school, as 
they will hereafter be to the community. But for the past four 
years, nearly all who have entered the grammar schools have 
gone through the course of study in the middle schools ; and 
these have usually exhibited moral and intellectual traits, which 
have reflected great credit upon the teachers of those schools.'' 



Nortii Grammar School. This school is generally larger 
than that at the south part of the district, and except in recita- 
tion rooms has accommodations for a larger number of pupils. It 
possesses an unusual degree of ambition, and has in most of the 
studies been well instructed. It has its defects, but they are 
so few compared with its merits, that we will find no fault with it. 

The school was opened in December of 1848, under the su- 
perintendence of Mr. Moses T. Brown, the present principal, 
assisted by Miss Allison and Miss Bliss. The former is still 
connected with the school. At the commencement of the 
summer term, Miss A. M. Hunt was chosen in the place of Miss 
Bliss. Mr. Brown is regarded as one of the best of teachers, 
while few schools can be more favored with good assistants. 

The full account of the obstacles to be overcome, which we 
have given in connection with the report of the other grammar 
school, is so applicable to this school, though perhaps not to so 
great an extent as in the other case, that we do not extend our 
report farther. 

The course of study in these schools is — Arithmetic, Col- 
burn's, completed, Leach and Swan's, to Involution— GeograpTiy, 
completed — History, Goodrich's completed, and Worcester's — 
Grammar — Green's 1st and 2d Parts, — Physiology, Cutter's. 
Particular attention is paid to reading and spelling. Rhetorical 
exercises are recpiired. 



108 
HIGH SCHOOL. 



Previous to 1846, this school had only the rank of a gram- 
mar school. That year, by order of the district, it was con- 
stituted a high school, and provided "with teachers to give 
instruction in the ancient and modern languages, and in all the 
higher branches of English studies pursued in academies. The 
first principal was John W. Ray, who continued in that capaci- 
ty until 1849, when he was succeeded by Amos Hadlcy, who 
at the expiration of his second year, was succeeded by the 
present principal, John. P. Newell. The school has usually 
had two female assistants. Miss Lydia G. Bailey, Miss Ann 
E. Riddle, Miss Elizabeth Allison, Miss S. E. Green, Miss 
Julia A. Knowlton, each assisted one or more terms. In 1848, 
Miss Caroline C. Johnson was elected, and continued in the 
school until 1852. Miss Esther P. Straw served for nearly 
the same length of time. The present assistants arc Miss 
Emily P. Shattuck, and Miss Abby H. Dennett. 

In the studies to which the classes have attended, there has 
been a very marked improvement. On an examination and at 
their usual recitations, the scholars give their answers with- 
out hesitation, and with much accuracy. The last examination 
afforded most convincing proof of the proper mental discipline 
in each department. There is in the school much active talent 
— many brilliant scholars, who are as thoroughly instructed, 
and who appear to be as familiar with the studies which they 
have pursued, as those of their age in any of the academies in 
the State. 

The defects in the school are a want of close application by 
some members, and a disposition on the part of others to a lax- 
ness of discipline — an impatience of restraint. For this the 
teacher may not be responsible. The fault does not originate 
altogether with the scholar; it frequently lies further hack — it 
may be found at home. It has often been the case that parents 
have taken their children from the school when they have been 
reproved or punished there. This is a serious injury to any 



109 

school, and we trust will not long be suffered in the city. The 
committee have advised the teachers to adopt a more strict 
regime, and to reprimand all departures from correct deport- 
ment. 

It is quite evident that a regular course of study for the 
high school should be adopted, and that an effort should be 
made to elevate the standard of scholarship. Our plan would 
be to prescribe a course for three years study — that there 
should be only one term in the year when ordinarily scholars 
should enter from our grammar schools — that classes should be 
formed at that time, and that pupils desiring to enter at any 
other time, should be qualified to go into the classes already 
existing. This would make less classes, save much labor, and 
perhaps enable us to dispense with one assistant. 



WRITING, MUSIC, &c. 

During the year, Mr. P. F. Gerrish has been employed to give 
instruction in penmanship in the three higher schools. He has 
worked for the benefit of the scholars unceasingly and as a teach- 
er receives the approbation of the committee. His style is plain 
and easy to be obtained. 

Vocal music has been introduced into the upper class of 
schools during the year, with much profit to the scholars. 
Aside from the knowledge of music which they may obtain, 
the exercise serves as a recreation, and gives them new zeal in 
applying their minds to whatever is required of them. Mr. 
John H. Willard has been employed to give lessons twice a 
week in the High School and in each of the Grammar Schools. 

During the year lectures have been given to some extent, 
by the teachers in these schools, on various subjects connected 
with the branches pursued. 



110 
READING, &c. 

In district No. 2, there is generally much attention paid to 
reading, and in these schools may be found many very excellent 
readers. In all the other districts, except No. 7, there are 
scarcely any who read well, and it is painful for a nervous man 
to sit for half an hour in some of the school rooms, while a 
class is attempting to give some idea of ki Ilicnzi's address to 
the Romans," or some other spirited piece. 

Most of the schools are deficient in a knowledge of orthogra- 
phy. They need to make the spelling-book more familiar, and 
in reading, to observe more closely the orthography of words. 

There is another fault which we must notice — a desire in the 
scholars to go over too rapidly the lessons assigned. In many 
branches there is a serious want of thorough knowledg 



INCREASING INTEREST. 



There has been the past year an increasing desire on the part 
of children to attend school. Especially is this true of the 
children of foreigners, and augurs well for that class which is 
becoming so important an element in our population. 

There has been less truancy than formerly, although it is still 
one of the greatest evils with which we have to contend. ! 
who are not under proper restraint at home, go to school with 
the notion that they can follow their own inclinations, and if 
they find anything more alluring than the school room, immedi- 
ately go in pursuit of it. It often occurs that a wayward 

for a whole week, before the teacher can ascertain the 
a, and before noticeof the factcan reach the parents. 

Former bees, the Justice el* tin- Police Court, the 

Mayor and the legal voters of School District No 2, have fre- 
quently had this evil under consideration, and at the 
sion of the Legislature, upon the petition of the authoritii 
Manchester nod Port mouth, a law was passed giving the city 



Ill 

government power to legislate in regard to truants and such 
children as are found growing up in idleness and -without employ- 
ment. The design of the law is to urge all to attend the schools 
now open to them, but in case of neglect or refusal so to do, to 
subject them to punishment. 



SCHOOL HOUSES. 



The increased desire to attend school and the fact that our 
population is increasing, indicate that there must soon be more 
school room provided. It is not, we know, a welcome subject 
to the tax payers, but necessity will soon enforce attention to 
the erection of school houses, or increased provision for the 
police and the almshouse. In district No. 2, there are now 
150 scholars attending public schools under the direction of the 
committee, in rooms rented for the purpose, and we have no 
doubt but that there are 300 children in the district more than 
can be well accommodated in the present school rooms. 

The house at Towlesville is not large enough to accommo- 
date the scholars in that neighborhood. District No. 3 is poor- 
ly provided with a school house, and has not even a pretence 
for a shed or any outbuilding. No. 4 has a very good house, 
which has the fault of high seats. No. 3 has an uncomforta- 
ble house, and the other districts have nothing very flattering 
by way of school buildings. 

According to a vote of the district, the high school building 
has been ventilated, and is now much more comfortable for those 
who occupy it. The committee did not deem it expedient to 
carry out the vote in full and ventilate the grammar school hous- 
es the present year. We hope it will be done hereafter. 

We will here suggest that the three brick houses in No. 2, 
arc not insured. We hope the district will consider this mat- 
ter at the next annual meeting. 



112 
APPROPRIATIONS. 



We hope our city council will sec the necessity of making 
greater appropriations for schools the coming year. More than 
the amount appropriated this year has been expended . Ten thou- 
sand dollars may seem a great sum for the support of schools, 
but it can be expended in no manner so profitably as in educa- 
ting the young. 



A SUPERINTENDExNT. 



The committee close their report by recommending the ap- 
pointment of a Superintendent of Schools, for the city. The 
services of one intelligent and judicious man in watching the 
interests of the schools — one who can make this his business — 
would do more for the advancement of education than has here- 
tofore been done by any single agency. We will not attempt 
to prescribe the duties of such an officer, nor arc we prepared 
to say that the committee should be dispensed with, but we 
feel confident that a well qualified superintendent, having an 
opportunity to become familiar with the character and attain- 
ments of the scholars, would be able to make suggestions, and 
devise plans of improvement, which would be of the utmost im- 
portance in our schools.
