INAUGURAL ADDRESS. 



Gentlemen of the City Council: 

Having been designated by the suffrages of our fellow- 
citizens to conduct tlie municipal affairs of our city for the 
present year, and having in solemn form assumed the obli- 
gations of our respective positions, we are now to enter 
upon the discharge of the several duties and responsibilities 
belonging thereto. 

In obedience to time-honored custom, I proceed to speak 
in general terms of the condition of our city affairs. It is 
not to be expected that I should be familiar with the details 
of the several departments ; or be able, at this time, to make 
specific recommendations for your consideration. I shall do 
this hereafter as occasion shall seem to require. 

The subject of our finances, always important, is pecu- 
liarly so at the present time. Owing to extraordinary cir- 
cumstances, common alike to all other cities and towns of 
our country, our expenditures for the past three years have 
considerably exceeded our income ; and as a necessary con- 
sequence our indebtedness has been constantly increasing, 
until the aggregate, though not uearly as large, proportion- 
ably, as many other towns and cities, is still of sufficient 
magnitude to justify the anxious thoughts of our citizens. 
Nor is it certain that the exigencies of this trying period of 
our country's existence will not imperatively demand a still 
further strain upon our resources and our credit. 

I have no doubt, however, both of our ability and our wil- 



6 

lingness to respond to all legitimate calls upon us, and to 
maintain the credit of our city in the future, as it has })een 
in the past, unimpaired. To accomplish this result two things 
are necessary. First, to confine our expenses within the 
smallest possible limits consistent witli due regard to the 
present and prospective welftire of all the interests of our 
city ; and second, a fii-m determination on the part of our 
citizens to tax themselves to such an extent as shall effect- 
ually prevent any further increase of our indebtedness, un- 
less in response to calls for maintaining the national life, to 
sustain which no sacrifice should be deemed too great. 

Our entire indebtedness at the close of the fiscal year 
ending December 31st, 1804, is about four hundred and fifty 
thousand dollars ; three hundred and sixty-one thousand dol- 
lars being for bonds and notes falling due from 1866 to 1894, 
and the balance being notes on demand, bills, and unadjust- 
ed claims against the city. There is due to us from the 
State, for aid furnished to families of soldiers since May 1st, 
1864, a])out thirty thousand dollars. We also have a claim 
upon the State for the State bounty advanced to one hun- 
dred and fifty re-enlisted men, and something may be real- 
ized from the General Government for advances made of 
United States bounty, although, ov/ing to deaths, desertions, 
and various other causes, the amount to be realized from 
the latter source is quite uncertain, and must be small in 
any event. The City Treasurer also estimates that fifteen 
thousand dollars will be realized from taxes now due and 
uncollected. 

The annual report of receipts and expenditures will soon 
be published, and to that I must refer you for tlie exact de- 
tails of our financial condition. AVhether under all the cir- 
cumstances the present year is a favorable time to commence 
the reduction of our debt, and if so, the extent to which 
the reduction shall take place, are subjects for your careful 
and earnest consideration. 



Tlio manner of keeping tlic accounts and disbursing the 
funds of the several departments, I should judge, has been 
very much improved during the past few years, and possibly 
Bome further improvement may be made in the same direc- 
tion. That system is the best which best promotes indi- 
vidual responsibility ; and the books sliould be so kept as to 
show at all times the exact condition of the several appro- 
priations and all the business operations of the city. 

Our public schools, forming as they do one of the chief 
corner stones of our social and political fabric, have been, 
and should continue to l)c, the constant recipients of our 
bounty and our care. The amount of money annually ex- 
pended* for tins object is larger than for any other, and our 
citizens have a right to demand in tins, as well as all other 
expenditures, that the full value shall be received. It will 
be for you to determine what amount, if any, beyond the 
requirements of law, shall be appropriated the present year. 

As a valuable addition to our means of education, and as 
a source of constant pleasure and profit to our citizens, the 
importance of our city library can hardly be over-estimated. 
I believe its capacity for usefulness was never greater than 
at the present time ; and it will be our duty, as well as our 
pleasure, to contribute in every })ropcr way to sustain and 
enlarge its moans of doing good. 

The subject of building and repairing highways and l^ridgcs 
must always be of importance, from its intimate connection 
with the safety and" comfort of our citizens, as well as the 
large annual expenditure necessarily required for such pur- 
poses. The very best disposition of the appropriation for 
these objects, and which sliall satisfy the greatest number, 
is an exceedingly difficult problem to solve ; and yet, indus- 
try and energy, guided by good judgment on the part of 
the superintendents, aided by fair and just criticism on the 
part of citizens, will, I think, materially help the solution. 
I am not aware of any calls likely to be made for new high- 



8' 

ways the present year ; and in this connection I would ven- 
ture the opinion that in many instances of tlie building of 
new highways, if a portion of their cost had been expended 
on those already built, the public good would have been bet- 
ter promoted thereby. 

The paving of Elm street meets with such general favor, 
that I am sure I do but repeat the common sentiment when 
I recommend the continuance of the work the present year, 
to such an extent as shall seem advisable. 

The improvement made in watering our streets the past 
season has been quite marked ; and although it may seem to 
many a trifling matter, I think every one having business on 
Elm street can bear witness to the comfort and convenience 
as well as the pecuniary value of well-watered streets, dur- 
ing the heat and dust of summer. That our streets should 
be well lighted is also a matter of consequence, and some 
changes in that direction may possibly be of advantage. 

Our public grounds are important to us, both as sanitary 
agencies and as ornaments to the city. Proper care and at- 
tention, given at the right time and in the right way, with 
a very moderate expenditure of money, v.^ill do much to in- 
crease their attractiveness and their value. Perhaps no one 
thing is more likely to give a favorable impression of our 
city to strangers, than the natural l)eauty of our puljlic 
grounds, enhanced and improved by judgment and good 
taste. 

It may not be considered out of place in this connection, 
to mention a prospective improvement, one which, when ac- 
complished, will not only contribute largely to the health 
and substantial comfort of our citizens, but will greatly 
stimulate the growth and material prosperity of our city. 
I refer to the introduction of water. The advantages of 
such an improvement are so oljvious that tliey need not be 
recapitulated, and its accomplishment should be considered 
as a question of time only. Let us hope that the speedy 



9 

return of peace and union to our country will bring to us 
renewed activity in all our industrial pursuits, and thus 
hasten 'the consummation of this enterprise. 
• The immunity of our city from distructive fires for the 
past few years, is a source of congratulation and thankful- 
ness. Our fire department, though not often of late called 
into active service, I have reason to believe is in a very effi- 
cient condition, and prepared for any emergency likely to 
arise. An addition of fifty-ciglit by thirty-seven feet to the 
engine house on Vine street is nearly completed. It is de- 
signed for the accommodation of the hose and hook and lad- 
der companies, and is also of sufficient capacity for another 
steamer, should the wants of the city hereafter require one. 
The cost of the building, includhig land, will l)o about 
$8000. 

The city farm I understand to be in a very good condi- 
tion and well managed, and I have no doubt the annual re- 
port will contain gratifying evidence of the economy as well 
as the humanity of this mode of supporting the unfortu- 
nate poor. 

A sense of security and protection to person and proper- 
ty is essential to our comfort and prosperity at homo, and 
to our character as a city abroad. And for the attainment 
of these desirable results wc must be indebted largely to the 
efficiency of our police department. Great care should be 
used in the selection of officers for this service. They 
should be men of undoubted integrity ajid energy, combined 
with judgment and humanity, and tlius secure harmony 
and co-operation, without which their usefulness is liable 
to ho greatly impaired. If evils cannot be eradicated, they 
certainly may, and should be, restrained within some limits, 
and it is the duty of the authorities to make those limits as 
narrow as public sentiment will possibly admii of. 

I am informed that the amount disbursed monthly to the 
families of volunteers, is about -flOOO. This is a large sum^ 



10 

and great care should be used that none but those entitled 
to it should be the recipients of this bounty. That the city 
is only the agent of the state, which refunds the money ex- 
pended for this purpose, should l)e an additional inducement 
for the exercise of care and caution in the discharge of this 
duty. 

The aid and encouragement given to our military organ- 
izations by our city authorities, and also by citizens in their 
private capacity, has been of great advantage to our city, 
not only in providing us witli a military force for any emer- 
gency that may occur, but greatly assisting us in respond- 
ing to the calls of the National Government for soldiers. I 
think such aid and encouragement, in all proper ways, 
should be continued. And in this connection I would com- 
mend to your consideration the circular of the Adjutant 
General of the State, in which he treats this subject with 
that ability and discrimination to be expected from the head 
of our State military organization. 

A certificate from the office of the Assistant Provost 
Marshal General for the State of New Hampshire, certifies 
that the city of Manchester had to its credit on the first 
day of June last, one hundred and fifty three-years men. 
And the records of our city treasurer show that since then 
we have paid the city bounty to one hundred and fourteen 
three-years men and one two-years man. Thus it would 
seem to be a well established fact, that we have to the cred- 
it of our quota for calls for men to reinforce the national 
armies, two lumdred and sixty-four three-years men and 
one two-years man. From a recent decision of the Provost 
Marshal General, in relation to the (juota of Massachusetts, 
this credit vrill undoubtedly be allowed us on the present 
call for three hundred thousand men. 

The recent bi'illiant successes of our arms, together with 
tlie hopeful view of the military situation generally, leads 
to the belief that the calls for men for the army will not be 



11 

large. Should it be deemed expedient at any time here- 
after to renew the city bounty, it would seem to be no more 
than simple justice that those who may have enlisted or 
furnished recruits to be reckoned on the quota for the pres- 
ent call, as well as those who will do so, should participate 
in the bounty. 

Gentlemen, having thus very briefly called your attentioa 
to the various departments of our city affairs, I desire in 
conclusion to impress upon your minds, as well as on my 
own, the importance of a prompt and earnest attention to 
the duties of our respective positions. Our fellow-citizens 
have the right to require of us the time and the labor nec- 
essary for the proper and efficient discharge of those duties ; 
and liumljly looking to the Divine Power for aid, let us la- 
bor faithfully for the promotion of the greatest good to all 
the interests of our^city. 

It is gratifying to me to know that I am to be associated 
with gentlemen of experience in public affairs, on whose aid 
and counsel I can rely at all times ; and I feel a confident 
trust that I shall receive your hearty co-operation in such 
measures as will best promote the pulilic welfare. 

As we enter upon tlie respective duties assigned us, let U5 
ho])C that harmony and mutual kind feelings may prevail in 
all our deliberations and intercourse with each other.

REPORT OF OVERSEERS OF POOR. 

To the Mayor., Aldermen and Common Council of the City 
of Manchester : 

In compliance with the requirements of Law, the Overseers 
ol' the Poor of said City, herewith present tlieir annual report. 

Whole number of paupers assisted tlie year past, who had 
ft settlement in the .State, is 169, of which 115 have a settle- 
ment in this City, and 54 have a settlement in other towns 
in the State. There have died of the above number, dur- 
ijig the past year, 15, — 10 belonging to this City, and 5 
Iroin other towns in the State. 

The whole number of paupers at the Almshouse, during 
the past year, is 30 ; average number, 15. There have been 
5 deaths there during the year. 

We cannot close our report and feel that we have doiui 
our whole duty, without saying that on visiting the'Alms- 
liouse, we were impressed witli the importance at no distant 
day of a new building so constructed that the poor shall bo 
separated from the prisoners. This question needs no argu- 
ment. We trust the evil will be remedied as soon as the 
financial condition of the city will justify the necessary 
expenditure ; and we desire to bear our united testimony 
to the able and faithful manncu- in which jVlr. Simpson, 
our superintendent, and his amiable wife have discharged 
their responsible and arduous duties, and most earnestly 
recommend to our successors that they be retained in their 
position if |)ossililo. All of which is respectfully submitted. 
FREDERICK SMYTH, Chairman.

CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 

Engieeers' Room, Manchester, Jan. 2, 1865. 
To His Honor, the Mayor, and Board of Aldermen: 

Gentlemen. — In compliance with the ordinance concern- 
ing the Fire Department, I herewith transmit to you my 
annual report of the condition of the Department, with an 
appraisal of all the property belonging to the same, the loca- 
tion of the several Engines and Apparatus, with the force be- 
longing to the same, the location and condition of Reser- 
voirs and other supplies of water within the city. 

The force of the Department consists of a Chief Engin- 
eer and six Assistants, and ninety-five officers and members 
of the various companies connected with it. They are di- 
vided as follows : 

Amoskeag, No. 1, Steam Fire Engine, 14 men. 

Fire King, No. 2, " " " 14 men. 

E. W. Harrington, No. 3," " " 12 men. 

Pennacook Hose Company, 80 men. 

Hook and Ladder Company, 25 men. 

The apparatus consists of three Steam Fire Engines, viz : 
one first-class double Engine with rotary pump, one first-class 
double Engine with two double-acting plunger pumps, one 
first>class single Engine with one doulde-acting plunger 
pump, (built by the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company of 
this place,) three two-wheeled Hose Carriages, two four- 
wheeled carriages, and one Hook and Ladder truck. 

The companies have in their possession 1150 feet of Rub- 
ber Hose, 5800 feet of common Hose, together with all the 
tools and equipments for extinguishing fires. 

The a1)ove-mentioned apparatus is in good order, with the 
exception of the Hook and Ladder truck, which has been 
condemned by the Committee on Fire Department as Tinfit 
for fire ser^'ice, and a now truck has been ordered from New 



63 

York to be built by C. E. Hartshorn, of that city. It will 
be delivered here about the middle of this month, at a cost 
of eleven hundred dollars. 

The Department now occupies three houses, one on Vine 
street, one on Manchester street, and one on Clinton street, 
Piscataquog. The one on Vine street is being enlarged so as 
to accommodate two more companies ; one part is to be occu- 
pied by the Hook and Ladder Company with their new truck, 
which will then leave the houses on Manchester and Chest- 
nut streets, belonging to the Fire Department, to be dis- 
posed of as the city government may deem proper. 

There has ])ecn considerable difficulty for the past four or 
five years in getting the alarms prom])tly, as well as ascertain- 
ing the locality of lircs, when an alarm is given, owing in a 
great measure to the fact that the City Hall bell is rung for all 
purposes, and is with great difficulty rung so that firemen 
can distinguish Ijctween ringing for fire and other purposes. 
To remedy that evil, a fire-alarm bell weighing one thousand 
and twenty-six pounds has been placed upon the new part 
of the house on Alne street. This l)ell being of a different 
tone from any in the city, and rung only in case of fire, will 
entirely do away with that difficulty, yini by dividing the 
city into five districts and striking the number of the district 
the fire is in while ringing the alarm, firemen can ascertain 
at once the locality of the fire, thereby saving time and the 
confusion oftentimes occurring. 

The drivers of the Amoskeag and Fire King Steamers arc 
required to remain in their engine houses nights, sleeping 
apartments having been fitted up for that purj)ose. They are 
also reipiired to work with their horses on the streets when 
wanted, under the direction of the Superintendent of Streets, 
alternately three days in the week, thereby securing at all 
times one driver and one pair of horses in readiness for fires. 
When not employed on the streets, both drivers are required 
to be in readiness at all times to start at an alarm of fire. 



64 

The Reservoirs are in good condition. Several are sup- 
plied from the pond on Hanover Square, (for location see 
table,) the others are from natural supplies ; many of them 
are very good and some of not much account. Since the 
last report a reservoir has been built on Clinton street in 
Piscataquog. The house occupied by No. 3 Steamer has 
been removed from Main street and placed over one corner 
of the reservoir, so that by moving the engine oiit in front of 
the house, they have a good supjily of -water for any emer- 
gency. 

I would rccommond that a -well be sunk beside the street 
at the south-west corner of Hanover Square, and connected 
with the pond by a pipe, thereliy furnishing an abundance 
of water to protect the thickly-settled portion of the city 
situated south-west from the square. 

■ Tlie Fire Department has been called out seventeen times 
during the year. With the exception of the fires at Amos- 
keag on the Island, at Mechanics' Row, and the tannery at 
Bakersville, they have been very sliglit. 

In conclusion, I return my sincere thanks to the xVssistant 
Engineers, and the officers and members of the several com- 
panies for their cordial support in all measures connected 
with the interests of the department. 

A. C. HEATH, Chief Engineer.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CEMETERIES. 

To His Honor ^ the Mayor, and City Council of t/ic City of 
Manchester : 
The Committee on Cemeteries beg leave to present their 
annual report. • 

THE VALLEY. 

Little has been done the past year beyond the usual care 
of the grounds. To supply a want long felt, a neat and sub- 
stantial tool-house has been built on the southerly side of 
the brook. 

The subject of building an avenue to wind along at tho 
bottom of tho banks on cither side of tlie brook, has received 
some attention. It is thought that such an avenue neatly 
graded and turfed would add to tho beauty of this part of 
the Cemetery. It would supply a large number of lots, other- 
wise of little value, and increase the revenue sufliciently to 
meet the outlay at least. We leave the question to our suc- 
cessors to determine whether such an undertaking is advi- 
sal)le. 

PINE GROVE CEMETERY. 

The number of lots sold in 1862, was 4 

u " " " 1SG8, "-----■ 4 

" " " " 1864, ------ 12 

Total " " " --.------ 20 

It will be seen that the call for lots here is increasing, ow- 



103 

« 

ing in part to the scarcity of desirable lots in the Valley. 
To meet this demand, more than usual attention has been 
paid to grading and fitting up lots, and building walks and 
avenues in that part of the Cemetery where they are being 
sold. During the severe drought of last summer, some exami- 
nations were made in reference to obtaining a supply of wa- 
ter for the use of these grounds. A portion of your Com- 
mittee visited the elevation of land to the east of tlie Cem- 
etery, and were unanimous in the opinion that a full supply 
might be here obtained. We would suggest to our succes-' 
sors that immediate steps be taken to secure the right to 
take tliis water, and that they proceed as far in the consum- 
mation of the oltjcct as the means at their command will, 
allow.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



To the Cilij Council: 

The j'car which now closes its record hasheen marked hy 
no extraordinary event in tlie administration of onr jnddio 
Schools. They liave been in session two weeks less than the 
usnal time, and have enrolled qnite as large a number of 
pupils as in any former year. 

The amount of money appropriated was 82,000 more than 
lias been apportioned to the* School department at any })re- 
vious time. But in consequence of a deficiency at the com- 
mencement of the fchool year, and the advance in the cost 
of fuel and all materials for repairs and supplies, the entire 
sum of Jir20,000 school money has been expended, leaving 
at the present time not far from J5'2,000 of bills unpaid. 
This deficiency actually exists, notwithstanding a large pro 
portion of the repairs have l^con mad.ii v\"ith the special aj)- 
])roiiriations voted by the Districts, and the expense of su]v 
])orting the Schools diminished at least 'lt'1,000 by reducing 
the length of the Spring term and deducting a correspond- 
ing sum from the salaries of the teachers. 

The following table shows the condition of the treasury 
at the commencement of the year 18G4, the new appropria- 
tion for each district and the amount of funds at the dispo- 
sal of the Committee during the year, not including district 
appropriations :

145 

As was stated in the report of last year, and frequently 
previous to that time, many of our low-grade Schools are 
much too large. The demands which fifty pupils from the 
age of four to ten years daily make upon a teacher are far 
too many for any instructor. Some pupil must he neglect- 
ed though the teacher is conscious of inflicting an injury 
with every instance of inability to meet the full require- 
ments of the school. Additional primary schools should he 
at once opened to relieve the pressure in the schools on Park 
Street, Franklin Street and Spring Street. Three new schools 
are now demanded in those locations, and would have been 
established during the past year had the Committee been 
furnished Avith the means necessary to employ the teachers 
required. 

To meet these wants, to support the schools now existing, to 
establish new primary schools, and to make provisions for 
sixty teachers and an annual enrollment of more than 3000 
pupils, will require a largely increased appropriation. It 
will be impossible to sustain the present school system, with- 
out increasing the annual com})ensation of teachers, to say 
nothing of new schools, and of the imperative demands 
which have been named, for a less amount than f 23,000. 
If additional schools are to be opened, if the present high 
cost of living continues, more money must of necessity be 
paid to teachers, and more expended in every department 
of the schools. The committee have estimated the expenses 
of continuing the schools the usual length of time — 40 
weeks — and arc confident that a sum less than f 24,000 will 
be entirely inadequate to meet the demands for the coming 
year. If to this we add the estimated indebtedness on the 
first of March — $!6,000 — we shall need an appropriation of 
$30,000 to continue the schools through the year and until 
the appropriation is made in. 1866. 

There has been some progress made during the year in 
providing a better class of school-houses in some of the dis- 
lo 



146 

tricts. Ill the Central District, the sum appropriated by 
district vote for repairs has been expended in making the 
items of repairs which are constantly occurring. But no 
money has been expended in remodeling school-rooms, or 
in building new houses. A lot for a High School House 
has been purchased and some steps have been taken towards 
the erection of a house the coming year. Should the dis- 
trict be disposed to appropriate a few thousand dollars addi- 
tional to the •Vi20,000 already ordered, the committee would 
be enabled to proceed with the work. 

The outstanding notes against the Central District at the 
date of our last report have all been cancelled, and the dis- 
trict is now entirely out of debt, having the full title to 
about $100,000 worth of real estate. 

In District No. 3, after much delay and at a late date, a 
new and convenient house has been completed, at a cost of 
a little more than |1,800. It is 40 by 30 feet, with 14 feet 
posts, and a projection in front for an entry. It is furnished 
with Shattuck's Boston school chairs and is one of the most 
attractive school buildings in the city. 

In District .No. 5, an effort was made to secure better 
school accommodations, and at a legal meeting of the dis- 
trict a vote was passed to purchase a lot and erect a new 
house. The money was appropriated and a building com- 
mittee appointed. But so many obstacles presented them- 
selves tliat the work was not undertaken. 

School District No. 7 voted to enlarge their school-house, 
and make other improvements, which render both the loca- 
tion and the house more acceptable, but the wants of the 
district are not yet fully met, and will not be until a house 
shall be erected adequate for two schools, or until some oth- 
er provision shall be made to accommodate the -75 or 80 
children in the district. 

A large number of teachers have been examined during 
the year, though but few vacancies have occurred by re- 



147 

signations or dismissals, and consequently but few new names 
occur in the list for the present year. 

The names and salaries of teachers elected are given in 
the accompanying list :

Teacher of Music— I. S. Whitney, 700 

111 this body of teachers, it would be a remarkable cir- 
cumstance if all were thoroughly qualified for the work as- 
signed them ; and it would be still more remarkable if, 
among them all, there should be even one who was beyond 
proper criticism. We have good teachers — as good as can 
be found, not merely in our own state, but in those states 
claiming to lead in the educational movements of the coun- 
try. "We have those — not a large number — who teach in 
the love of teaching ; who are not content when they have 
proposed the set and sometimas incomprehensible questions 
in the text-books, but who labor to give all the instruction 
that can 1)3 given in the public sdiool, communicating it by 
no mere formality of words, but in living, earnest thoughts 
and original illustrations, which none but a cultivated, en- 
thusiastic mind can command. 

. It is not pleasant to say that we have teachers of a widely 
different class in many of our school-rooms — those who un- 
dertake to teach because it is, in their judgment, more hon-* 
orablc than to have no occu})ation, or to be employed in" 
manual labor. They have sufficient knowledge of books to 
pass a satisfactory examination, and this answers the terms 
of the statute. But their instruction in the school-room 
shows want of mental strength and culture, and the intel- 
lectual character of the teacher makes its impress on the 
pupil. Under such instruction there may be accurate reci- 



150 

tations, learned word by word as given in the text-book ; 
classes may appear admirably on examination so long as 
questions are confined to the prescribed lessons, and are 
given in the exact language in which they have been accus- 
tomed to read them, but a collateral question shows at once 
the limit of their knowledge, and is the true measure of the 
teacher's capacity. 

Not only in giving instruction do some teachers fail, but 
they make a more serious failure in the government of the 
children under their care. They do not understand the di- 
versity of mind on which they are to exert an influence. 
They do not consider that every word and act of theirs is 
watched by the cliild, who often wonders at the many in- 
consistencies of the teacher. The least departure from jus- 
tice in the awards of merits or punishments — from prudence 
in the school-room or elsewhere, in the presence of the pu- 
pil, will tend to destroy confidence in the teacher, and fill 
the young mind with doubts and prejudices which may never 
be counteracted. 

In a large majority of our schools, the permanency of the 
teachers is very favorable to progress. Even poor teachers 
are sometimes tolerated for too long a period in consequence 
of the evils which follow a change. In the country districts 
there are repeated changes in teacliers, in some cases three 
'or more different teachers being employed at the same school 
within a single year. Partly in consequence of this prac- 
tice, and partly for other reasons, the schools in the sub- 
urban districts of the city do not sustain that reputation for 
good scholarship, punctuality in attendance, and rigid dis- 
cipline which give character and efficiency to most of the 
schools in the central districts. There is a general want of 
spirit in them — they are without ambition. In all of them 
are some good scholars, but the majority will not rank fa- 
vorably with the other pui)ils of the city, nor with those in 
country schools in the neighboring towns. 



151 

111 the several schools of this class, except District No. 6, 
male teachers were employed for the winter term. The 
only failure occurred in District No.* 8, although considera- 
ble difficulty was experienced by the teacher in District No. 
1. While the other schools were good, tlie most labor was 
evidently done in No. 7. With the exception of the school 
in Difstrict No. 9, which has continued under the instruction 
of a male teacher during the entire school year, these coun- 
try schools have been taught by females. Though in a few 
instances there Avas some inefficiency, the general character 
of the summer schools has been much better than in former 
seasons. 

Tiicre ai'c in Districts No. 2, 10 and 11 twenty Primary 
Schools, registering more than two thousand ditferent pujjils 
in a year. When we compare the management and pro- 
gress of these school with those of the same grade elsewhere, 
we have tlie riglit to decide that with but few exceptions, 
they are well conducted. But when we consider what an 
intelligent and faithful teacher might do with 30 or 40 in- 
stead of GO or 70 pupils in one room, we cannot refrain from 
expressing the regret, that we have not the facilities for 
greatly increasing the nnmber of our primary schools. Or 
the means of employing additional instruction in a majority 
of them. 

There are at present nine schools classed under the name 
of Middle Schools, though only seven of them fully reach 
the required standard of this grade.. Two of this number 
do not now maintaiu so high a rank as the others, and will 
require more rigid discipline to restore them to their former 
efficiency. The majority of these schools are most excellent- 
ly managed, and are instrumental in laying a sound founda- 
tion on Avhicli to build up good scholarship in the higher 
grades of school. 

The schools which may be classed in the Crammar Grade, 
are the two higher schools on the west side of the river, 



152 

that at Wilson Hill, the Intermediate, and those on Park, 
Franklin and Spring Streets. They now niimber nearly 800 
pupils and sixteen teachers. 

The school at Araoskeag has been subject to frequent change 
of teachers, and has not at all times been in a very promis- 
ing state of discipline. It possesses sufficient talent for a 
good school, and with a faithful, permanent teacher who 
understands how to govern as well as teach, it would not 
long rank as the lowest in the grade of Grammar schools. 
The Piscataquog school numbers about 65 pupils, which fur- 
nish sufficient work for the two teachers now employed. 
It is thoroughly classified and is managed with as much sys- 
tem as the large Grammar schools in the Central District. 
The school at Wilson Hill is under good control, though 
sometimes rude and troublesome boys find admission who 
require a severer discipline than is generally exercised by a 
female teacher. 

The Intermediate School maintains about the same stand- 
ing as it has for some years past. The Winter term brings 
in a large number of boys and girls who attend school no 
other portion of the year, and arc sometimes rough and im- 
patient of restraint. But under the management of the 
present principal they have been easily reduced to submis- 
sion and often show superior ability to learn. During other 
terms of the year, the school is so small and orderly that a 
judicious woman finds but little difficulty in its manage- 
ment. 

The Boys' School on Park Street is making very satisfac- 
tory progress. No teacher labors more diligently or has 
more obstacles in the way of success than the principal of 
this school. 

The two large Grammar Schools the past year have l)eon 
more than ordinarily siiccessful, having had a larger num- 
ber of pupils, unexceptionable discipline, a good degree of 
attendance and more than ever l)cfore the confidence of the 



153 

public. Tliey have never been under better instruction, 
been less subject to complaint, or appeared better on exam- 
ination than during the past term. 

The attendance at the High School 1ms not been as large 
as usual. This has resulted in part from a disposition of 
pupils to remain longer in the Grammar grade and partly 
from various circumstances which were beyond the control 
of the Committee. 

The order in this school is very much more gratifying 
at the present time than it has been for some years past, and 
the instruction in the classics Ijy the present principal has 
never Ijcen excelled. The teachers have directed their most 
earnest efforts to the advancement of the pupils, and have 
the satisfaction of knowing that considering the want of fa- 
cilities which the school experiences, the pupils render a 
good account of their privileges. 

The following table shows the attendance, deportment and 
scholarship of the pupils :

The course of study prescribed by the Board has been 
observed with but slight variations, in all the schools, and 
with some modifications should be rigidly followed in the 
future. It has not been practical at all times, to observe a 
prescribed course in the classics in the High School, in con- 
sequence of the small number of pupils in Greek and the 
more difficult Latin works. But in the Natural Sciences 
and in ^lathcmatics the course is thorough and faithfully re- 
garded. 

If our pupils are marked for superiority in any single 
branch of study, it is in Mathematics. 

From the Primary School in the mere table-book of fig- 
ures, through the Middle and Grammar grades where men- 
tal and written mathematics are daily studied, up to the 
High School, where Algcl)ra, Geometry, Trigonometry and 
Surveying are thoroughly mastered, there is no escape from 
the severer discipline of mathematics. It is not merely a 
passing over these works but a rigid drill, day by day, so 
long as the pupil remains in the public schools. If our pu- 
pils fail in this department of study wdien they go into prac- 
tical life, it is not for neglect on the part of the teachers of 
our common schools, nor for any oversight of those whose 
•duty it is to superintend the puljlic school interests of the 
city. The other branches of study usually allowed in com- 
mon schools 'are pursued with system and exactness, and 
though pupils may not always stand the test of practice in 
grammar, geography or history, though they may fail in 
orthogra])hy or in reading, it is not because too little is re- 
quired of them, but rather that their attention is not direct- 
ed with sufficient earnestness to them, or their minds are so 
organized as not readily to distinguish truth from error. 

The success which the introduction of music into our 
schools has met seems to demand a more extended notice 
than it has heretofore received. 

At the commencement of the Autumn term, 1860, the 



159 

School Committee decided to introduce vocal music into onr 
schools, and accordingly engaged Mr. I. S. Whitney as 
teacher. The progress of the pupils was at first slow, and 
hy many the experiment was considered as a douljtful one. 
Some maintained that the good results would never balance 
the expense of the effort ; but the Committee thought other- 
wise and the result has proved the correctness of their opin- 
ion. They were fortunate in their selection of a teacher, 
and evidently put the right man in the right place. His 
efforts for the schools were so apparent in November of the 
same year, that with only about three months drill, he pre- 
sented his pupils in a public exhibition which proved to be 
of such a character as to inaugurate a new era for music 
and for the children and parents of the city, and led to the 
permanent establishment of the Puljlic School Festival. 

The opponents of vocal music in school became converted 
ta its favor, and since that tlay a school anniversary would 
be a tame affair, possessing little of interest without its in- 
spiriting and cheering accompaniment of vocal music. 

Since 1860, music has been found to be so elevating an 
influence in the schools it has been continued, with results 
which have made better and more favorable impressions up- 
on the public from year to year, until its great utility as an 
educational agency was made most evident at the last annu- 
al Festival. On this occasion the people generally, and the 
friend's of music in particular, must have been exceedingly 
gratified with the musical taste and cultivation exhibited by 
the pupils. A gentleman wdio maintains a high reputation 
for his musical talent, gives his impresssions of the evening's 
exercises and of the value of vocal music in our public 
schools in the accompanying paragraphs which we append to 
this report : 

"Cliantlng, choral singing, solo, duet and chorus Avere given by 
the pupils of our common schools Avith so much truthfulness and 



160 

exactness of movement, that amateurs and professional persons 
were alike astonished at the great and glorious -work which Mr. 
Whitney is perfecting among us ; and his great success may be 
attributed to his energy, his persistence in the right method, his 
actual undying love for the art, and his untiring zeal and constant, 
continued effort in the only right direction to produce just the 
right results. Public opinion, however wrong at the start, Avill 
no longer need conversion in regard to continuing and increasing 
facilities for the practice of music in all our schools. All who are 
interested in our educational movements must see that one of the 
natural results of school music, and a most interesting and im- 
portant one, will be this : — In the course of a few years, all the 
children who give proper attention to the subject, will be trained 
to engage acceptably in the music of the parlor and the music of 
the church — an object worthy of patient, systematic, well-direct- 
ed, constant and continual effort. 

*' Experience has taught that the best, if not the only way in 
which all persons may become educated to sing, is by having mu- 
sic taught in all our schools ; and in regard to the method of 
teaching, there can be no doubt that our worthy instructor, Mr. 
Whitney, has adopted and persevered in the best system. The 
results witnessed at our annual Festivals, testify unmistakably to 
the correctness of such teaching. In the first place we observe 
that there is unity of uijethod in the singing exercises throughout 
all the schools. Now to train separate masses of two thousand 
children in forty different schools so that they shall sing even the 
plainest chant or choral icell when brought together, is to train 
them thoroughly and truly ; the discipline must be as exact as 
clock-work in each separate body or they never can chime togeth- 
er as a whole. The last Festival proves that Mr. Whitney has 
adopted the real, bo7ia Jidc, unitary mode of teaching the rudi- 
ments of music. The music performed by the schools there con- 
gregated prove to us that though music be not taught as a science 
in school, yet these children have been taught in the most simple 
way and have actually learned to read music and to know as much 
about the science as they can yet make practical use of. Mr. 
Whitney has evidently made the best use of such opportunity as 



161 

has been afforded liim for teaching. His pupils evidently love 
and respect him, they have confidence in him and know that he 
is master of the art which he attempts to teach. He does not at- 
tempt to teach music in our day schools as a scievce. for he knows 
that a child's mind should not be Ijurdened with indigestible ab- 
stractions ; for facts and applications it has natural appetite and 
aptitude, but not for scientific rules and principles. Mr. AVhitney 
has demonstrated the fact that a child may learn iniiaic, learn to 
sing, without learning the musical science ; his pupils learn and 
know the A B C of music ; they go through a brief conventional 
routint^ which they learn as they do the names of the streets and 
how to find their Avay about in them. The great benefit derived is, 
the formation of a good ear, the right exercise of the voice, and 
the cultivation of the inl)orn sense of rhythm, tune and harmony. 
This is all, and to this judicious and correct method. ]Mr. Whit- 
ney owes much of his success. He is, as has been before said, 
the right man in the right place. Sustain him there. 

"• The earliest age. that of six, seven or ten years, is the most appro- 
priate for learning to sing ; voice and ear, so obedient to external 
impressions, are rapidly devidoped and improved, defects correct- 
ed, and musical capabilities awakened. Kxperience and observa- 
tion have taught that a considerable j)roportion of all children, 
who could at first neither sound a single tone nor distinguish one 
from another, have acquired at our pul)lic schools, ear and voice, 
and some of them have even become superior in both to their ap- 
jjarently more gifted com])anions ; in others, the very weak or in- 
difi'erent voices have in a sbort time become plensing, strong, 
clear and extended. 

•' We know l)y experience, that wiieii children are l)rought to- 
gether, they iipperceptibly impart cheerfulness, and stimulate each 
other to exertion and activity ; thus, tiie infiuence of singing up- 
on the ear and voice, and in the health and morals of the pu- 
pils, will be increased ten-fold,. Avhen aided by the participation of 
numbers in this pleasurable exercise ; the delicate and nervous 
child will gain strength and confidence, and the slow and indolent 
be roused. Imitation, that powerful spring of human action — 
the example of their companions, their progress, and even their 
mistakes — furnish the teacher with the means of making his les- 
sons more interesting and successful, than he could ever render 
them by individual tuition, however great his zeal or talent. And so 
we find, that the children take that intense interest in their les- 
sons which, at their age, is in general only bestowed upon play ; 
at home the influence of singing extends itself to their habits 
and dispositions, and consequently to their moral character. 

'^ If we are agreed to have music recognized and taught at all, 



162 

is it not best to have it taught iu earnest r If a thing is worth 
doing, is it not wortli doing veil ? It never will and never can be done 
well until there shall be one method and one mind presiding over 
all the music teaching in the schools. There should be one in- 
spiring and controlling genius in the matter ; one competent, live 
man, who has it in him, Avho has enthusiasm, knowledge, the 
tact and the power of influencing others ; and for him it shoidd 
be an office of dignity and trust, publicly valued as we value all 
high functions, to infuse true life and order into the musical de- 
partment of our schools. Have we all this uoav? and if so, do 
we give this individual the encoiu-agement and support which he haj* 
a right to ask and receive ? If not, is it not plainly our duty to do so ? 
Consider, for a moment, the spirit and tendencies of our country 
and the characteristics of its people — a toiling, speculating, money- 
getting, fast-living, excitable race — wearing themselves out with la- 
bor or with thought, reckless and impatient always. Was there 
ever a tuition more requiring the amenities of life, more needing 
an infusion of the .a'stlietic among the harsh and discordant ele- 
ments of their composition?" 

"Never is a Kation finished, while it wants tlie graee of art; 
Use must borrow robes of beauty; life must rise above the mart ; 
Here, as yet, in our Republic, in tlie furrows (if our soil. 
Slowly grow Art's tiiniil lilussnms, "ueath tlie luMvy foot of toil — 
Spuni it not. but spare it — uuvsc it. till it txlaiMms all the lanil." 

There are otlun' topics wiiicli claim the attention of the 
public, that we might discuss, Itiit it is not our intention to 
repeat wiiat other committees have proposed nor to extend 
our rej)ort heygnd what circumstances seem to requir(\ 
From what we liave said thus far, it will he seen that oitr 
schools are in a comparatively good condition — that they are 
generally under the (hrection of faithful, earnest, compe- 
tent teachers, that they are com|)osed of intelligent, obedi- 
ent and industrious pupils ; that although they are not yet 
perfect nor as useful as they may l)ecome, tli^^y maintain a 
high rank in comparison with other schools, and constitute 
one of the most valuable lilessings afforded our citizens.
