INAUGURAL ADDEESS 



HON. FREDERICK SMYTH, 

MAYOR, 



CITY COUNCIL of" MANCHESTER: 

DELIVERED BEFORE THE TWO BRANCHES IN CONVENTION, 
JANUARY 5, 18G4. 



MATOE'S ADDRESS. 



Gentlemen of the City Council : 

Selected by our fellow-citizens to conduct the municipal 
affairs of this city, for the year this day commencing, and 
having taken a solemn obligation to devote to that purpose 
our best endeavors, we cannot now escape the responsibil- 
ity we have assumed. 

I congratulate myself that, on again assuming the duties 
involved in my position, I am to be associated with so large 
a number, in each branch of the City Council, who have 
had experience in the legislation of our city ; who not 
only know what has been done, but what is required, and 
the most feasible mode to obtain the desired results. 

In accordance with the requirements of the city charter 
and with custom, I shall ask your attention to some of the 
more important matters that will become subjects of city 
legislation. 

The annual report of the receipts and expenditures of 
the past year not being completed, I cannot now refer in 
detail to financial affairs. It is hoped that the report will 
soon be before you. 

I shall not be thought to overstate the case, when I say 
that no City Council, in the history of our municipal gov- 
ernment, now commencing its eighteenth year, has been 
required to consider and act on questions so momentous 
as those which will immediately occupy our attention. 
We are to assume the management of a debt nearly or 
quite twice as large as that of any previous year, while the 
state tax is to be doubled. 

What shall be done with so great a debt, what necessity 



there may be for its increase, or what probability of its re- 
duction, what means shall be provided for payment of 
interest, and whether the burden of taxation can be light- 
ened without public detriment, are questions to be care- 
fully considered. With these large liabilities of city, 
county, and state, come increased taxes in like proportion. 
However unwelcome such facts may be, it is better to look 
them squarely in the face, that we may be the better pre- 
pared to meet them. Of the creation of such indebtedness, 
or whether it was or not in part or in whole properly in- 
curred, we are not called upon now to decide, — we must 
take matters as we find them. 

The limited investigation I have been able to give the 
subject of the city finances since my election, does not en- 
able me to express at this time any decided opinion in rela- 
tion to what should be our course of action in this regard. 
I therefore will only briefly state that, from information 
obtained from our worthy city Treasurer, I find the in- 
debtedness of the city, on the first day of the present 
month, to be as follows : 

Bonds due, 1893, !870,0OO 

188S, 35,000 

July 1,1882, 22,500 

January 1, 1880, 10,000 

Notes due, July 1, 1878 3,500 

Bonds due, July 1, 1877, 22,500 

Julyl,1874 20,000 

July 1, 1872, 20,000 

Notes due, February 1, 1872, 3,600 

Bonds due, January 1, 1871, 6,000 

July 1,1867, 20,000 

January 1, 1866, 6,000 

Noteadue, June 1. 1864, 6,000 

May2,1864, 2,300 

April 13, 1804, 2,100 

February 16, 1864 2,500 

February 9, 1S64, 10,000 

Notes due, on demand, 69,400 

Interest due, January 1, 1864, 8,025 

Due State of New Hampshire and County of Hillsborough, 

for taxes of 1863, 27,754 

Due OD bills approved in Treasurer's hands, not paid, 12,928 

~f 380, 107 



The amount of outstanding bills due, I have no means 
of knowing at the present time, neither can I inform you 
how much we may receive from the state and general gov- 
ernment, or from other sources, or how much the expenses 
of the city will be from this time until the taxes of the 
present year can be realized in June. The Treasurer in- 
forms me that, in his opinion, we shall be under theneces- 
ity of obtaining by loan about forty thousand dollars, to 
pay the demands on the treasury by the families of soldiers, 
before any money can be received from the state for that 
purpose. He is also of the opinion that at least ten thou- 
sand dollars in addition must be raised, to pay demands 
now due, and which may become due, over and above the 
money he now has on hand and the receipts from all sources 
from the present time till the new taxes are assessed in June. 

From the foregoing it will be seen that we are liable to 
be called upon to pay sixty-nine thousand and four hundred 
dollars, the amount of notes due on demand, at any time. 
Other notes amounting to twenty-two thousand and nine 
hundred dollars, will mature in the course of five months. 
It will be noticed also that, by the Treasurer's estimate, 
fifty thousand dollars ijiore must be raised soon, to meet 
demands before named, over and above all estimated re- 
ceipts. I name the subject here, in order that it may be 
known, as nearly as possible, how we stand at the time we 
assume office, and also fop the purpose of urging your 
immediate attention to the matter. I have no doubt of 
our ability to maintain the credit of the city unimpaired. 

To confine our debt within manageable limits, and so to 
control taxation that our men of business and capitalists 
may not be driven fi'om among us, will require rigid econ- 
omy in expenditures and discriminating firmness on the 
part of each member of the City Council, in resisting ap- 
plications for improvements, which, though desirable, can- 



not all be effected at once. I do not advocate a parsimo- 
nious policy, even in our present financial condition ; but 
a close scrutiny into the wisdom and necessity of every 
proposed outlay is indispensable to the public welfare. 

The power to make appropriations and to expend them, 
rests exclusively with the City Council, except in cases 
otherwise provided for by the state and city laws. I do not 
understand that any standing or special committee of the 
City Council, or of either board, has authority to expend or 
control any appropriation, unless specially authorized by a 
vote of the City Council. . 

Although the Mayor is by the charter made the chief 
executive officer of the city, and is required to exercise 
supervision over the conduct of all subordinate officers, he 
has no authority to expend money unless authorized by 
the City Council. 

A thorough system of accounts and a rigid accounta- 
bility should be required of persons having the expenditure 
of public money. The appropriations should be made 
large enough for the purpose for which they are designed, 
and should in no instance be overdrawn without a vote by 
the proper authority. Every officer and agent disbursing 
the public money should be held personally accountable 
for every cent expended in excess of the appropriation. K 
this system be not well enforced, we shall be under the 
necessity at the commencement of every year to resort to 
temporary loans to supply deficiencies of the previous year. 
These loans will soon become a part of the permanent debt 
of the city, and thus our debt go on increasing impercepti- 
bly to the authority that permits it to be contracted. 

That " the world is governed too much," is a maxim as 
true as it is old, and which no one conversant with history 
or experience in human nature will deny. The city records 
will show that our own law-makers have not escaped the 



8 

universal temptation. It has been found necessary from 
time to time to prune and condense the ordinances. In 
many instances the state laws would have been sufficient 
for our needs, and in other cases the city law makers have 
not made themselves familliar with the enactments of the 
state, with which their work has conflicted. A new re- 
vision of our ordinances is necessary at this time, as few 
persons have ever perused all the laws that encumber our 
records, or ever will. We should avoid the passage of any 
law not absolutely required. 

Not questioning the ability or judgment of the Assess- 
j ors of previous years, I desire to call the attention of the 
present board to the subject of our public taxes, with a 
view to their more equitable distribution. It is an admit- 
ted fact, that property in this city has always been valued 
at a much higher rate than it has in the aggregate through- 
out the state. This difference in the valuation would be 
of no consequence if we were taxed for city purposes only, 
but inasmuch as on this valuation our share of the state 
and county tax is based, it is of vast importance to us, the 
more especially at this time, when this public tax is to be 
about doubled, or nearly as much as all our tax for munic- 
ipal purposes, and also as upon the appraisal of this and 
the last year the apportionment of the public tax of this 
and the three next years is to be made. The effect of 
this difference in appraisal may be seen in the last appor- 
tionment of the state tax. Manchester's proportion of 
this tax under that apportionment was seventy-six dollars 
and eighty-four cents on every thousand dollars raised by 
the state, or nearly one-thirteenth of all the state tax. 
Does any one believe that Manchester does or ever did, 
contain one-thirteenth part of all t,he property in the state ? 
I am aware that the City Council cannot control this mat- 
ter, but if our present able board of Assessors can feel it 



9 

to be their duty to remedy this evil, even in part, my ob- 
ject in alluding to it in this connection will be accom- 
plished. 

One of the largest appropriations we are annually called 
upon to make, is for the support and maintenance of our 
public Schools ; and I am free to say, gentlemen, that it is 
not here that we should first commence to lessen our ap- 
propriations. The expense of our Schools is indeed great, 
but the expense of a lack of education would be incalcu- 
lably greater. Every good and true man, patriot and 
Christian, will desire that our Schools be thorough and 
efficient in their work. Never before was the impression 
stronger than now upon the minds of the good and thought- 
ful, that if this country is to be, as it has been, a govern- 
ment of the people, that the masses must become educated ; 
and to this end that schooling for our children must be as 
free as possible — so free that all can share it, and the 
schools so good that none can despise them. To me it is 
a pleasant thought, that the loyal condition of our New 
England States is largely attributed to the general intelli- 
gence of the citizen — an intelligence as we all know, that 
comes from our free schools. Considering their immedi- 
ate pecuniary cost, we have a right to expect much in 
return. The influence of the competent teacher ought to 
be felt upon pupils, not only within the walls of the school- 
room, but in society and wherever a scholar goes. 

One thing is greatly to be desired in our Schools : the 
cultivation of a spirit of taste and careful usage of the 
public property which shall prevent the destruction and 
defacing of school buildings, fences, trees, &c. On this 
subject too much cannot be said by parents and teachers. 

In an inaugural address to the City Council, March 15, 
1853, and again March 24, 1854, 1 took occasion to rec- 
ommend the establishment of a free Public Library, the 



10 

"Manchester Atheneum" having liberally tendered the 
gift of their valuable library to the city for that purpose, 
providing the city should maintain and annually enlarge 
it. It has now been in operation about ten years, and it 
seems to me, fully justifies the anticipations of its found- 
ers, and has proved a powerful auxiliary in the cause of 
education and morals. I have also had reason to know 
that it has added to the reputation and character of the 
city abroad, as a token of wise and liberal legislation. 

A more extensive Reading-room, as a place of quiet 
resort for all who chose to avail themselves of it, was I 
think one of the original features contemplated by its 
friends, and I have never looked with pleasure upon a 
curtailment of this branch of the enterprise. It is not my 
■wish here to suggest an immediate additional outlay of 
money — the times will not admit of it — but I look forward 
to a time when our Public Library will assume much more 
importance than now. It is not extravagant for us to im- 
agine that at some future time we may see not otily a free 
Library of books and extensive Reading-room, but, in con- 
nection with the same, paintings and works of art. It is 
to be hoped that the institution will take so deep a hold 
upon the hearts of our citizens, that individuals of wealth 
will consider it an object worthy of endowment, and will 
desire to have their names associated with it as its bene- 
factors. 

All populous communities have found it necessary to 
protect by organized force, the property and persons of the 
well disposed frojn the vicious. We are to expect no re- 
prieve from this necessity, until the Divine law is more 
fully recognized and obeyed. The expenditure of large 
sums of money does not always accomplish the desired 
object. One officer, with a character for strict integrity, 
courage and perseverance, united with a discriminating 



11 

judgement and good temper, who is determined in the 
discharge of duty, is better than any number of men with- 
out such qualities. The best evidence of a good officer in 
this department is the amount of crime he prevents^ rather 
than tlie number of cases he brings before the Police 
Court. 

An impression prevails that the number of officers in 
the Police Department of our small city is unnecessarily 
large, and that the expense of the same might be lessened 
without public detriment. 

Good roads and sidewalks enhance the value of proper- 
ty as well as add to the comfort and convenience of citi- 
zens. Notwithstanding the large amount annually appro- 
priated for the purpose, our roads are not always in a 
desirable condition, as is proved by daily experience and 
occasional vexatious suits, against the city, for damages. 
The most eminent civil engineers have made road-building 
a study, and we should do no less than exercise the ut- 
most care in the appointment of men who have the super- 
vision of the highways. We shall not reach the perfection 
of those famous old roads, which have borne the peaceful 
and warlike trains of two thousand years without material 
repair and amendment ; but we ought by skill and care 
to place our highways in better condition, with less annual 
expenditure of money. 

The paving of Elm street, which for several years has 
been continued, was not extended last year, although, I 
am informed, an appropriation was made for that purpose. 
This improvement of our principal business thorougbfare 
is, in my opinion, an economical expenditure, and I rec- 
ommend its continuance the present year, to such an ex- 
tent as you may think advisable. Should you coincide in 
this view, an early contract for the stone will be necessary, 
in order to insure the completion of the work in the prop- 



12 

er season. A somewhat extended observation has led me 
to the opinion that smaller blocks of granite, tlian those 
heretofore used for paving, will answer a better purpose. 
Much care should be exercised in the proper preparation 
of the streets for paving, in order that the work may be 
permanent. 

Improvements are absolutely demanded in our sidewalks, 
and the various codsiderations arising from this subject 
will require much thought. Whether the city shall com- 
pell the abutters to build and keep the sidewalk in repair, 
or in case the work is undertaken by the city, what com- 
pensation shall be made to those who have already done 
their part, we ought speedily to determine. Citizens who 
notice defects in road or sidewalk, should make it a duty 
to report the same at once to the proper officer, as much 
expense and suffering may thus be avoided. Some State 
law may be required to enable us to exercise the needed 
control over the subject of sidewalks. 

An annual appropriation has been made for several years 
and paid, for watering Elm street. This outlay, if judi- 
ciously expended, is conducive to the comfort of our own 
citizens and visitors, who mostly congregate on this our 
business thoroughfare, and the safety of property liable to 
injury by dust ; but for some reason it seems to have had 
but little efficiency except on rainy days. I would suggest 
that the object may be better attained by taking the 
water, necessary for the northerly portion of the street, 
from the reservoir on Concord square, wliich might easily 
be conducted to a cistern in rear of the city stable, and 
that the teams kept in readiness for the steam Fire Engines 
be used to distribute the water, always being readily 
available in case of fire. 

The expense of lighting our streets has become quite 
an item. Some are of the opinion that, for the money we 



13 

pay, the streets should be better lighted. Tlie lighting 
and extinguishing the lamps is done by an employee of 
the Gas Company. Would it not be sounder economy for 
some officer of the city, whose time may not be fully oc- 
cupied otherwise, to perform this duty, or provide some 
means to ascertain that the city has all the light it pays 
for, especially as complaint is made that the lights are 
often extinguished before the stipulated time. 

A careful survey of the location, capacity and grade of 
our sewers should be made, and a map of the same pre- 
served. There is reason to believe that this knowledge 
would have saved considerable needless expense hereto- 
fore incurred. 

Our public grounds, so indispensable to health and com- 
fort, should receive yearly careful attention, and the im- 
provements, commenced years ago, be continued. Every 
tree should be protected and preserved, their losses re- 
placed, the fences, grass plots and ponds, kept in good and 
tasteful condition, and free from every unsightly object. 
The neatness of the commons has much to do witli the 
health of the city. Means should be taken to secure the 
purity of the water in our public grounds, by protecting 
the water courses leading thereto from corrupting deposits. 
I have reason to believe that the munificent spirit on tlie 
part of the Amoskeag Company, which granted so much 
land for public benefit, is not yet exhausted, and that by 
consultation with the Agent, who has taken so much in- 
terest in beautifying and improving our city, a still larger 
open space may be secured at some eligible situation for 
parades and public gatherings. 

The, only s\iccessful weapons to be used against pauper- 
ism are industry, temperance and economy. To induce 
those, who are disposed to rely on tlie public for support, 
to practice these virtues, is the duty of every good citizen. 



14 

' The number, who claim support or aid from the city, is 
said to be increasing, — not so much from any general in- 
crease of pauperism, as from the fact that more such per- 
sons, by lapse of time and by taxation, have gained a 
residence here. 

The city farm is a valuable aid in support of the poor 
and should receive every care and attention to increase its 
productiveness and render it profitable. The street clean- 
ings, which formerly added so much to its fertility, have 
not, I am sorry to learn, been at all times used for so good 
a purpose. The value of these accumulations is very 
much underrated ; with the annual application of these 
fertilizing substances so easily obtained from the city, our 
farm may soon be made the most productive in the county. 
The expense of this cleansing would be much lessened by 
employing inmates of the House of Correction and the 
farm teams. 

That beautiful and sacred spot, " Valley Cemetery," has 
been nearly all disposed of, in individual and family lots. 
With wise forethought, the authorities some years since 
purchased " Pine Grove Cemetery," a place in many re- 
spects suited to the purpose to which it is devoted. It is 
to be regretted that greater variety in hill and valley does 
not combine with the other qualifications of the new loca- 
tion, but it is doubtless the best that could be procured ■ 
The delightful grove upon it may be much improved by 
judicious and tasteful pruning. Affection, sentiment, 
duty and christian piety, all demand of us appropriate 
care for the place of sepulture. 

I am not aware that any particular change is called for 
in the Fire Department at present. It appears to possess 
the features desirable, — cheapness and efficiency, — to a 
very praiseworthy degree. We now have three steamers. 
These, when in order (as they generally are}, afford a 



15 

better protection than we have ever had before. It is 
hoped that the fortunate exemption from losses by fire, 
which we have enjoyed during the past year, will lull 
neither citizens nor firemen into careless security. With- 
out vigilance, we are liable at any moment to disastrous 
conflagrations. 

The times in which we live teach us the lesson that 
every community, situated as we are, will be much more 
likely to remain quiet, orderly and peaceful, if within its 
own borders and composed of its own citizens, it should 
have a disciplined volunteer force that can, at very short 
notice, be made available in case of disturbance of the 
public peace. The general good order of our city I am 
pleased to note ; and it is not anything in the past, that 
has occurred in our midst, that occasions this allusion, but 
a conviction, which I think you, gentlemen, and our citi- 
zens share with me, that in the event of any popular com- 
motion — any attempt by designing men to set at defiance 
the authority of our city or state, we should feel, all of uf, 
more secure if provided with this force. I refer to the 
subject in order to suggest that, to those volunteer mili- 
tary organizations, which now exist or which may hereaf- 
ter be formed in our city, you extend such support and 
encouragement, moral and otherwise, as their importance 
demands. 

We now contribute to the support of two military com- 
panies, the " Amoskeag Veterans " and the " National 
Guard." The first-named, composed of some of our best 
citizens, is an organization too well known to need com- 
ment here. The second is formed of young men, many 
of whom have seen service and received honorable wounds 
in the national cause. Although recently organized, it has 
attained to a state of discipline highly credible to the corps. 
These companies serve to keep alive the military spirit of 



16 

our citizens, and ought to be particularly encouraged and 
fostered. 

I learn that the amount now paid by the city each 
month, as aid to families of volunteers, is about five tliou- 
sand dollars. There is reason to believe that many have 
been, and still are receiving this money, who. are not prop- 
erly entitled to it. The committee of the Council, who 
have had this matter in charge, have labored under many 
embarassing difficulties, as must their successors. A 
searching investigation should often be made, to ascertain 
those promoted, discharged, deceased and deserted, whose 
families are receiving this aid. It will require constant 
vigilance to gain this needed information, and most care- 
ful discrimination in receiving new applications. 

In ordinary times and under ordinary circumstances, I 
should lay myself liable to the charge of ambitious mo- 
tives did I allude to the affairs of our nation ; but such 
are the times and such the crisis that not to allude to our 
country would be unpardonable. In whatever manner 
we may be called, during the present year, to aid our 
country, let us all vie with each other in cheerfully doing 
our duty, ever mindful of tlie blessings that under God 
rested upon our fathers, have flowed to us all our lives long, 
and will descend to posterity if we shall but prove true. 
I congratulate you, gentlemen, that the present signs are 
full of hope and encouragement. Each day confirms us 
in the opinion that the nation is to live, that human bond- 
age in this land is to cease, and that justice and liberty 
shall here abide. 

The faithful performance of a duty as member of the 
City Council is no pastime. Each, in his appropriate 
sphere of action, should strive to become acquainted with 
the duties of his position, and, having learned them, 
should be resolute in their performance. Ours is a gov- 



17 

ernment for all, and all alike are entitled to its benefits. 
Let it be our aim to be prudent in legislation, cautious in 
measures adopted for an efficient administration of the 
law, but firm in maintaining its supremacy. 

As I become more fully acquainted with the circumstance 
and condition of the city, these and other subjects may be 
more thoroughly treated in some future communication. 

Having thus endeavored, in as comprehensive a manner 
as posible, to bring to your notice matters which will de- 
mand early attention, I am aware that I cannot, without 
charge of indifference or ingratitude, pass in silence the 
extraordinary unanimity of the vote which has laid on me 
the responsibilities of this office. Neither have I forgotten 
the kindness and forbearance of the citizens during the 
three successive years, when formerly honored with their 
suffrages. I sball endeavor to express my thanks by such 
an administration of affairs as shall prove their confidence 
not misplaced. As we have entered upon our duties with 
an invocation of the blessing of Divine Providence, let us 
hope to continue and close them with His approbation.

Manchester, January 1, 1864. 



FINANCE COMMITTEE'S EEPOET. 



City of Manchester, January 2, 1864. 

The undersigned, Committee on Finance, in pursuance 
of the fourteenth section of Chapter Three of the Revised 
Ordinances, certify that we have examined the foregoing 
account of Henry R. Chamberlin, City Treasurer, and find 
the same correctly cast, and all payments and expenditures 
therein charged against the City properly vouched. 

We find that there has been received into the Treasury 
during the year ending December 31, 1863, including the 
balance on hand January 1, 1863, the sum of Three 
Hundred Ninety Thousand Eight Hundred Thirty-Three 
Dollars Thirty-One Cents ($390,833.31), and that there 
has been paid from the Treasury, during the same time, 
the sum of Three Hundred Sixty-Eight Thousand Pour 
Hundred Fifty-Six Dollars Forty-Four Cents ($368,456.44), 
leaving in the Treasury, January 1, 1864, Eleven Thous- 
and Four Hundred Seventy-Six Dollars Eighty-Seven cents 
($11,476.87). 

THOMAS R. HUBBARD,^ t ^

REPOET OF FINANCE COMITTEE. 



A careful analysis of the foregoing account shows that 
there was paid into the city treasury during the year 1863, 
including the cash on hand January 1, of that year, and 
excluding loans and money reimbursed by the state for 
aid to famiHes of soldiers, the sum of $130,731.09. From 
this deduct 112,357.74, the amount of unpaid bills for 

1862, and also $5,624.35 outstanding bills of the same 
year but paid in 1863 (including three thousand dollars 
for jail lot), and there remains a balance of $112,749. as 
the collected revenue for the ordinary expenses of the 
city for the year 1863. 

There was paid out during the past year, exclusive of 
the foregoing sums amounting to $17,982.09, and also ex- 
clusive of the amount paid on account of the war and the 
temporary loan, the sum of $82,139.83. To this sum 
should be added $27,754.86, the amount of the state and 
county tax still remaining unpaid, making the whole 
amount of expenditures for city purposes, including the state 
and county tax, $109,894.69. This sum taken from the 
one given above as the amount of collected revenue for 

1863, leaves a balance of $2,854.31. If to this sum we 
add $14,474.05, the amount of uncollected taxes for 1863, 
after deducting five per cent, for loss in collecting, we find 
that the expenditures for the ordinary purposes of the 



24 

city for the past year liave been less than the revenues by 
the sum of $17,328.36. 

TEMPORARY LOAN. 

The amount paid the past year on the temporary loan, 
including $59,800 due at the close of the preceding year, 
is $86,500 ; the amount paid to families of soldiers, 
$52,877.12 ; the amount paid to soldiers as bounties, $141,- 
913.62 ; the whole amount being 1281,290.64. To meet 
this. City Bonds have been sold to the amount of $94,100 ; 
amount obtained on notes, $118,200; amount received 
from the state as reimbursement of '' State aid," $47,802.- 
22; the whole amount being $260,102.22. This sum 
taken from the preceding leaves $21,188.42 as the amount 
paid in excess of that received. The dijSiculty of raising 
the large sum required to pay the soldiers' bounties in the 
limited time given to fill our quota, rendered it necessary 
to take the ordinary funds of the city to make up this de- 
ficit of $21,188.42, and occasioned, for the time being, 
the non-payment of the state and county taxes. And yet 
this non-payment is only in appearance, since the bounties 
now due from the state and general governments and 
transferred to the city, is more than sufficient to liquid- 
ate the same. 

The present amount of the temporary loan, obtained on 
city notes, is $91,500. If to this sum there be added 
$21,188.42, the amount before mentioned as taken from 
the ordinary funds of the city to make up the deficit on 
account of the war, it will give 1112,688.42 as the actual 
amount of the temporary loan. To pay this there is now 
due from the state for bounties, $17,500 ; for interest on 
$47,802.22 (state aid) from August 1, 1863, to September 
29, 1863, $462.08 ; and from the general government for 
bounties, $10,850. In addition to these sums, there will 
be due from the general government for bounties, the sum 



25 

of $42,000. The next or second installment of $7,000 be- 
comes due March 1, 1864. There will also be due from 
the state the sum of $34,743.12 as " state aid " advanced 
bj the city from May 1, 1863, to January 1, 1864. These 
several amounts make a sum total of $105,555.20, leaving 
a balance of the temporary loan, otherwise to be provided 
for, amounting to $7,133.21. 

THE PERMANENT DEBT. 

The permanent debt at the commencement of the year 
1863, was 1^134,100. It has been increased during the 
year, by the sale of bonds amounting to $35,000, to pay 
the floating debt which existed at the beginning of the 
year. The further amount of $70,000 in bonds has been 
issued to meet the expenses of the war, of which $10,900 
still remain in the Treasurer's hands unsold, making the 
whole amount of the permanent or funded debt, January 
1, 1864, $239,100. 

The amount paid in bounties to 148 drafted men or 
their substitutes, is $44,400. 

The amount paid for filling our quota on the last call of 
the President, is $97,613.52, from which deduct $25, re- 
funded on same account by N. Perkins & Co., and also 
$575, still due from the same, and there remains $96,- 
913.52. This sum divided by 192, the number of men 
required to fill the quota, gives an average expense per 
man of $504.75.

TENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



OP THE 



TRUSTEES OE TPIE CITY LIBRARY. 



The Trustees herewith submit their tenth annual report 
of the condition of the City Library. 

The affairs of the Library for the past year have, as we 
believe, been conducted in a manner satisfactory to the 
public and with a due regard to the interests in our charge. 

A new Catalogue, including all the books placed in the 
Library from its commencement to the ninth of April, 
1863, which was in course of preparation at the time of the 
last annual report, has been completed and printed, and 
contains an index to all the books then in the Library, 
arranged alphabetically under thie name of the Author, 
the title of the work and the subject of which it treats, 
with references under each, to the number and shelf on 
which it may be found. 

The publication of this Catalogue, supplies a want long 
felt by those who have had occasion to use the Library, or 
to consult the volumes which it contains. 

It is proposed to continue the system then introduced, 
and at the end of each year, to publish a supplement, con- 
taining the books added to the Library during the year, 
arranged substantially in the same manner with such al- 
terations and improvements as experience in the prepara- 
tion of the Catalogue and the use of the same in the Libra- 
ry shall show to be useful. 



96 

The number of volumes added to the Library, as ap- 
pears by the report of the Librarian, during the year, has 
been quite large, and they have been selected by the board 
with reference to the wants of the community and with the 
purpose of making the Library as complete in all the de- 
partments of knowledge as the means at our command 
will allow. 

A considerable number of volumes have been presented 
to the Library by some of its friends, to whom, on hehalf 
of the City, we respectfully tender our thanks. 

A list of the donations so received will be found in the 
report of the Librarian. 

The Trustees have to regret that Mr. Francis B. Eaton, 
who, from the commencement of the operation of the Li- 
brary under its present organization, has efficiently and 
acceptably performed the duties of Librarian for the past 
nine years, determined to resign his position of Librarian, 
to take effect on the first of October last. And we feel 
that we are doing no more than justice to him, when we 
attribute the present successful position of the Library to 
the constant care 'iind great interest he has manifested in 
all matters connected with the administration of its affairs, 
and it will be a source of congratulation, should we be 
able to find a successor who will be able to perform the 
duties of the office in an equally satisfactory manner. 

Upon receiving notice of his intended resignation, the 
Trustees procured the services of Mr. Marshall P. Hall, as 
Librarian for the time being, who, although laboring un- 
der disadvantage by reason of the short time which elapsed 
between the time of his appointment and the time when 
he was required to commence the active duties of his po- 
sition, has been entirely acceptable to the board and gives 
us reason to believe that the affairs of the Library will suf- 
fer no detriment by the change in the officer having its 
immediate control. 

The statement of the condition of the Library, as found 
by the Librarian at the annual examination just closed, 
and the report of the Treasurer, show the details of the 
affairs of the Library and of the expenditure of the funds 
entrusted to the board. 



97 

The Trustees have endeavored to expend the appropria- 
tion made by the City for the expenses incident to the 
Library with due regard to the interests of the City ; and 
are of opinion that by the exercise of strict economy, the 
expenses for the coming year will not be sensibly augment- 
ed, and that but a small increase of the appropriation 
above that of the last year, will be needed. 

While earnestly recommending to the City Council, that 
through no mistaken views of economy, the usefulness of 
the Library be suffered to diminish, nor its value to be 
impaired, we have full confidence that the determination 
of the amount of the appropriation may safely be left to 
their judgment and discretion. 

In Board of Trustees of the City Library, Jan. 4, 1864. 

Read and Approved : 

T. T. ABBOT, Mayor, and 
President, Ex-Officio. 
Wm. C. Clarke, Clerk. 



LIBEAEIAN'S EEPOET. 



Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees : 

I respectfully submit the following report of the opox- 
ation of the City Library for the nine months, ending 
Sept. 30, 1863, also, for the three months, ending Dec. 
31, 1863, and of its present condition. 

On the 30th September, thirty-six hundred and fourteen 
persons had been entitled to take books ; one hundred 
and nineteen names have since been added, making thirty- 
seven hundred and thirty-three now on the books. 

Twenty-tliree thousand, eight hundred and seven vol- 
umes had then been lent, in thirty-four weeks ; since 
that time, ten weeks, seven thousand, eight hundred and 
eleven have been delivered, making thirty-one thousand,

the average number delivered monthly, has been twenty- 
six hundred and three ; do. weekly, seven hundred and 
eighty-one ; do. daily, one hundred and thirty. At the 
examination just made, sixteen volumes were missing from 
the shelves. 

The whole number of books, bound volumes and maps 
now catalogued, is ten thousand, four hundred and twen- 
ty ; four h\uidred and thirty-four have been added since 
October l,and one thousand and fifty since the last report. 

There was cash on hand, Oct. 1, 55 ; I have received

EEPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CEMETERIES. 



To his Honor the Mayor and City Council of the City of 
Manchester : 

The Committee on Cemeteries beg leave to present 
their annual report. 

VALLEY CEMETERY. 

Of all the original lots laid out in this Cemetery, only 
three remain unsold. Several have been laid out and dis- 
posed of during the past year on the slopes of the banks, 
which now afford the only available place to purchasers. — 
A few more lots may be located here, but it will require 
considerable expense by the proprietors to properly grade 
and fit them up so as to ensure permanence. 



116 

The subject of a more fitting and durable entrance-way 
from Pine street, has been considered by your Committee, 
and they were only kept from action in the matter by the 
present inflated price of labor and materials. We would 
suggest to our successors their early attention to the at- 
tainment of so desirable an object. 

The accompanying report of our treasurer shows a very 
satisfactory state of finances. 

In view of the want of lots here to supply the demand, 
your Committee have given more than usual attention to 
fitting up and beautifying the 

PINE GROVE CEMETERY, 

And as the foundation of permanent improvements they 
have commenced the subjugation of the soil. Some six 
or eight acres, destitute of trees, but covered with shrub 
oaks and other bushes, have been cleared, plowed and 
thoroughly grubbed over with the hoe and axe — all of it 
sowed with rye, and a portion of it seeded down. One 
hundred and four cords of wood have been cut and sold. 
In the effect of its removal effort has been made to give as 
much variety to the scenery as possible. 

The entire absence of water here is much to be regretted, 
but to remedy that defect as far as possible it is hoped that 
at no distant day a supply will be introduced by artificial 
means sufficient to feed considerable ponds and for other 
purposes. 

The receipts and expenditures will be exhibited in the 
city report. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.
