INAFGUEAL ADDEESS. 



Gentlemen of the City Council, 

AND Officers of the City of Manchester : 

In accordance with the requirements of law, we 
have met to-day for the purpose of organizing our 
municipal government for the ensumg year. 

We have in the most solemn manner pledged our- 
selves to lay aside personal interests, to forget section- 
al and party considerations, and give oiu' best efforts 
to promote the welfare of our people and the gener- 
al prosperity of the city. 

Complying with custom and the general expecta- 
tion of our citizens, I invite your attention to some of 
the prmcipal subjects which will claim consideration 
and official action while we occupy the places we now 
assume. The first in importance is that of the 

FINANCES. 

Our rapidly-increased city debt demands a resort to 
every available means of retrenchment and economy 
in the expenditm-es of the public money. It appears 
by the annual report of the receipts and expenditures 
for the year ending December 31st, 1864, that the 



6 

city debt amounted to $428,966 00 ; at the close of 
the fiscal year endmg December 31st, 1865, our en- 
th-e mdebtedness is about §461,895.00, of which 
$359,100.00 is fmided ; $77,795.00 temporary loan ; 
$10,000.00 mterest due on coupons and notes ; and 
$15,000.00 outstandhig bills and claims against the 
city, unadjusted. 

I am advised by our faithfid City Treasurer that 
there is due the city from the state, for aid furnished 
to the families of soldiers, about $9,000.00, and 
about $33,000.00 taxes now due, uncollected ; and 
$11,000.00 cash in the treasmy. If we realize the 
amounts above stated, from the state and the rnipaid 
taxes, om' actual debt will be about $408,895.00. 

It is for the City Council to decide whether any 
part of the debt shall be paid the present year, or 
whether the debt shall be uicreased. If they decide 
that there shall be no fm'ther increase of the debt, 
this can only be accomplished by strictly confining 
the appropriations witliin the estimates of the drffer- 
ent departments. 

It is clearly evident that it would be a ruinous 
practice in the days of peace and prosperity, to go on 
increasmg the city debt to meet the ordinary expenses 
of the city. This policy woidd in time cripple our 
resources and impah* our prosperity. 

In view of om* large debt and high taxes, I woidd 
invite the City Council to scrutinize om* expenditures 
with the greatest care and \dgilance, and to reduce 
them to the lowest possible point. In aid of the poli- 



cy of retrenchment, I pledge you my best efforts and 
earnest co-operation. 

At the same time, we should not forget that true 
pubhc economy consists, not in mthholding the means 
necessary to accomplish important pubhc objects that 
will advance the prosperity and welfare of our city, 
but in taking care that the money appropriated for 
such objects and piu'poses shall be faithfuUy and pru- 
dently expended. 

Bonds amomituig to $50,000.00 were issued last 
March, of which $46,100.00 are in the hands of the 
Treasurer, unsold. 

The annual report of the City Treasurer, shoeing 
in detail the receipts and expenditures of the last 
year, will be laid before you soon. 

HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES. 

While our highways are generally m a fan* condi- 
tion, there are some streets m the central section of 
the city which requhe no small amount of labor to 
render them enthely satisftictory to the public. These 
would have received more attention durmg the past 
few months, had not the appropriations been greatly 
reduced by necessary expenditures in other localities. 
The liighwa}^s in the rural sections of the town de- 
mand yoiu* attention. It is quite as much to the cred- 
it of a city, and a far greater convenience to the pub- 
lic, that good roads be maintained in the suburbs. 
than that well-graded streets and smoothly-paved side- 
walks be provided ui the thickly-popidated portions 
of the town. Wilde all of our streets should be kept 
m such a condition as will afford safety to the pubhc, 



8 

the leading avenues to the city, those great thorough- 
fares over which so much of the material support of 
our population is carried, should receive a larger pro- 
portion of the appropriation than is usually expended 
upon them. 

The City Council should be slow to increase any 
appropriation unless it is clearly demanded by exist- 
ing chcumstances ; but with the great advance m the 
price of labor and all the materials of construction, it 
cannot be expected that our streets can be kept in as 
good repair with the same amount of money as was 
requhed before the depreciation of the currency. 

There will doubtless be many applications for new 
streets and highways, but in times like the present, 
when public burdens are so heavy, it will require 
much discrimination to determine what is necessary 
for the accommodation of our citizens, and what is 
simply desirable. 

It will probably become necessary to re-plank the 
Amoskeag Falls bridge the commg season, for which 
provision must be made. The other bridges m the 
city are, I believe, m good repau*. 

The paving of some of om- streets with square 
blocks of stone, which was maugurated by Mayor 
Harrington, has given universal satisfaction. I re- 
commend the continuance of the same on Elm street, 
and, so far as w^e are able, on some other important 
streets of the city. 

THE FIRE DEPARTMENT 

Sustains an honorable reputation, not only for the ex- 
cellency of its machines and its attractive appearance on 



9 

public occasions, but for the intelligence of its mem- 
bers and its great efficiency* whenever it is called into 
action. 

THE POLICE 

Is an established department of our municipal gov- 
ernment. On its \igilance, prudence and integrity de- 
pend, in a large degree, the good order and honora- 
ble name of our city. We cannot over-estimate the 
importance of a pohce force composed of men quali- 
fied to perform the delicate as well as difficult duties 
requhed of them. They shoidd be men of quick per- 
ceptions and ready, decisive actions — earnest and 
bold, but cautious — never passionate, nor rash, nor 
timid — free from prejudice, malice and vindictiveness. 

Such men, may you gentlemen of the Board of 
Aldermen, be able to select to constitute the pohce 
force for the year to come, men who have the pubhc 
confidence, who Avill maintain good order, vindicate 
the right, and bring crime to justice. 

The order of our city has seldom been better pre- 
served than durmg the past year, notwithstanding we 
have had the excitement consequent on the retm-n of 
many soldiers ; and, notwithstandmg the fact that in 
many other cities, and even m country towns, there 
has been an unusual degree of crime, our pohce re- 
cords show that \igilance in detectmg violations of 
law, and justice hi meteing out punishment, have ex- 
erted a restraining influence over the passions of men. 

- COMMONS AND CEMETERIES. 

During the past year the public squares of the city 
were much improved under the dhection of a judi- 



10 

cious committee from both branches of the Cit)' Gov- 
ernment. They will reqmre additional attention the 
present year. A portion of the fences, not only about 
the commons, but otiier grounds belonging to the city, 
should be rebuilt or thoroughly repahed. 

The two prmcipal cemeteries will requhc no ap- 
propriation. The revenue from the sale of lots mil be 
adequate to meet the expenses of such improvements 
as are abeady planned or contemplated. 

The old bm-ying ground at the "Centre" should be 
enclosed by a new and substantial fence, that the 
restmg place of the early residents of the to^Mi may 
be unmolested. 

SEWERS AND DRAINS. 

It is well known to our citizens that nearly all of 
our oldest sewers, except a few mams, are construct- 
ed of wood. Many of these are now m a decayed 
state, and are frequently -breaking away, to the great 
annoyance of the public, and at much expense to the 
city. So far as chcumstances wiU allow, these should 
be replaced by cement tubes during the year. 

The main sewer on Elm street, you are aware, was 
built about twenty years ago, before the city had at- 
tained one-half its present extent and population, and 
although sufficiently large for that time, has proved 
to be inadequate for the present emergency. The 
consequence is, that in hea\7 and sudden rains, and 
in the spring time, when the snow is rapidly meltmg, 
the surplus water is forced along the line of the sew- 
er and overflows at the cesspools, flooding the streets. 
This will demand the careful consideration of the 



11 

Committee on Sewers and Drains, and also of the en- 
tire Comicil. 

SCHOOLS. 

The largest appropriation reqnhed for any depart- 
ment is that for the support of our public schools. — 
For several years prior to the year just closed, the ex- 
penditures were larger than the appropriation, though 
no over-draft was made on the Treasurer. Bills pre- 
sented after the appropriation was exhausted were 
generally laid over until the commencement of the 
succeedhig financial year. 

The appropriation last year, was considerably in- 
creased, so that the Committee up to this date have 
met all demands, and now have a small balance in 
the hands of the Treasurer. 

But I learn from the Superintendent of Public 
Instruction that six new primary and middle-grade 
schools have been established during the year, and 
that several additional assistants are employed in 
the grammar and other schools. I also understand 
that there is now an urgent necessity for opening 
several new schools. 

From my personal knowledge of our public 
schools, I am prepared to say that for system, disci- 
pline and thoroughness of instruction, they command 
our highest commendation ; and while they contin- 
ue under the direction of such men as have for years 
past composed our Board of Education, and are en- 
trusted to the instruction and guidance of such 
teachers as a large majority of those now employed 



12 

have proved themselves to be, our citizens need en- 
tertain no fears of their prosperity arid usefulness. 

THE CITY LIBRARY 

Is one of the most valuable resources for popular 
instruction that our city affords. The number of 
cards which have been issued, the frequent call for 
books, and the lively interest which our best men 
manifest in its prosperity, indicate its importance to 
all our citizens. The advantages it affords would be 
much increased if the reading room, which was a 
source of great gratification, could be restored. 

The past season, by its severe drouth, has again 
admonished us that Ave must, before long, provide 
for a supply of pure water from some abundant 
source out of the city. This topic has been fre- 
quently discussed, and the initiatory steps have been 
taken to accomplish the object so much desired. — 
The most feasible source of supply seems to be Mas- 
sabesic Lake. While I do not believe we are called 
upon the present year to make an appropriation for 
this enterprise, I am confident that the public mind 
is preparing for a liberal expenditure in this direc- 
tion at no distant day. As has often been said, "It 
is only a question of time." 

The ahns-house should ever receive the fosterins; 
care of the city authorities. The unfortunate, 
whose home it is, bear testimony to the kind treat- 
ment of tlie superintendent and matron, and the an- 
nual returns show that the farm is not only self-sup- 
porting, but yields a liberal dividend to the city. If 
at the same time the land is not impoverished by 



13 

excessive cropping, too much praise cannot be given 
to its management. 

Gentlemen, I have thus briefly referred to some 
of the chief topics which will demand your attention 
the coming year; others will naturally present 
themselves to your consideration. 

Allow me in conclusion, to suggest to 3'ou the ex- 
ercise of a rigid economy in the appropriation of 
the public money, but do not suffer your economy 
to degenerate into parsimony. Let your appropri- 
ations be what the interests of the city demand ; 
grant all that is required for use, but not a dollar ^to 
be squandered. Complete what you undertake — 
at least make financial provision for it. Leave no 
enterprise for your successors to continue, unless 
you transmit to them therewith the means for its 
execution. 

Gentlemen, I assume the position I occupy re- 
strained by no pledges, given or implied. I am not 
committed to any men except those who will best 
discharge the duties required of them, nor to any 
measures except those which appear to promote the 
public good. Trusting in your intelligence, your 
public spirit and your good faith, I am confident 
that we shall work harmoniously together to n\ain- 
tain the credit, the reputation and the integrity of 
our city.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CEMETERIES. 



To His Honor, the Mayor, and City Council of the City 
of Mandiester : 

The Committee on Cemeteries beg leave to present their 
Anniial Report. 

THE VALLEY. 

In accordance with the recommendations of their pred- 
ecessors, yonr Committee early commenced the building of 
a carriage road or avenue, on the low ground of the Val- 
ley. The entrance is from Cliestnut street, descending by 
tlie City Tomb, and thence dividing to the right and left 
by winding drives along tlie banks, descending at the rate 
of ten feet fall to one hundred feet in length, until they 
reach the bottom land. The remaining portion of the av- 
enue is nearly level, and raised from omo to five feet above 
the general surface of the ground. All of that portion 
lying nortlicrly or westerly of the brook, is completed. — 
Five hundred and nineteen feet of six inch cement pipe, 
have been laid, with six cesspools, to conduct tlie water 
from the hill sides, in order to secure the embankments 
from washing. We feel confident that when the original 
design of this drive is fully completed, it will add a pleas- 
ing feature to these grounds — already enshrined in the 
hearts of our people. 

The amount expended for this, and other purposes, is 
shown by the accompanying report of the Treasurer of the 
Committee. 

PINE GROVE CEMETERY. 

It cannot be expected that so large a tract of land, witli 
the means at the disposal of your Committee, can at once 



51 

be made to vie with older grounds. To accomplish this, 
it requires time, and the united efforts and fostering care 
of the City, and the proprietors of lots. It is believed 
that the foundation has been laid for a quiet and appropri- 
ate repose for the dead, which is destined to share the re- 
gards of our citizens.

CHIEF ENGINEER'S REPORT. 



Engineers' Office, January 1, 1866. 
To his Honor, the Mayor, and Board of Aldermen : 

Gentlemen. — In compliance with the ordinances of the 
City, I herewith submit my annual report of the condition 
of the Department, witli an appraisal of all the property 
belonging to tlie same, the location of the Engines and 
Apparatus, with a list of the names and residence of each 
member of the several companies, also the condition of 
Reservoirs and other supplies of water within the city. 

The apparatus consists of three Steam Fire Engines, 



62 

viz : the Amoskeag, No. 1, is a first class double Engine, 
with rotary pumps. The Fire King, No. 2, is a first class 
double Engine, with two double acting plunger pumps. 
The E. W. Harrington, No. 3, is a first class single Engine, 
with one double acting plunger pump. (Built by the 
Amoskeag Manufacturing Company.) Three two-wheeled 
Hose Carriages, two four-wheeled Hose Carriages, and two 
Hook and Ladder trucks. 

The apparatus is in good order. The Hook and Ladder 
truck built by C. E. Hartshorn, of New York, has been 
added to the Apparatus of the Department since the last 
annual report. It is a valuable acqui^tion. The old 
Hook and Ladder truck remains at the house on Man- 
chester Street. I would recommend that the truck be 
disposed of, it being of little value. This would leave the 
houses on Manchester and Chestnut Streets to be dis- 
posed of as the city government deem proper. 

With the exception of the house on Clinton Street, 
Piscataquog, occupied by Steam Fire Engine, E. W. Har- 
rington, No. 3, the whole apparatus used in the Department 
is kept in the house on Vine Street. The drivers of the 
Amoskeag and Fire King Steamers are required to remain 
in their Engine houses nights, sleeping apartments having 
been fitted up for that purpose. The old arrangement of 
working alternately tliree days in the week with their 
horses on the streets, under the direction of the Superin- 
tendent of Streets, still continues. When not employed 
on the streets, both drivers are required to be in readiness 
at all times to start at an alarm of fire. 

The reservoirs are in good condition. The long and 
almost unprecedented drouth which prevailed last sum- 
mer and still continues, has had the effect to diminish the 
amount of water. But by the exercise of proper care, 
enough for any emergency has been retained. 

Since the last report a new reservoir has been built on 



63 

the corner of Walnut Street, Piscataquog, the old one 
having become nearly useless. Owing to the lateness of 
the season when it was commenced, this reservoir is not 
yet finished. 

The Fire Department has been called out but few times 
during the past year, and with the exception of the fires 
at the mill in Piscataquog, and the State Reform School, 
they have been slight. 

In concluding this report, I desire to return my sincere 
thanks to the Assistant Engineers, and to the Officers and 
members of the several companies, for their promptness in 
the discharge of duty, and their support in all measures 
connected with the interests of the department. 

N. S. BEAN, Chief Engineer.

EEPOET OF OVEESEEES OF POOE. 



To Ihe Maijor^ Aldermen and Common Council of the City 
of Manchester. 

In compliance with the requirements of law, the Over- 
seers of the Poor of said city, herewith present their annual 
report. 

Whole number of paupers assisted the year past, who 
had a settlement in the state, is 152, of which 87 have a 
residence in this city, and 65 have a settlement in other 
towns in the state. There have died of the above number 
during the past year, 8 *— 4 belonging to this city, and 4 
frolii other towns in the state. 

The w])ole number of paupers at the Almshouse during 
the past year, is 25; average number 11.^. There have 
been no deaths there during the year. 

We cannot close our report and feel that we have done 
our whole duty, without bringing to your notice the sug- 
gestion made in the last year's report of the Overseers of 
the Poor, in regard to having a new Almshouse so con- 
structed that the poor may be separated from the prisoners. 
We renew that suggestion, and recommend, that at no 
distant day, a new building, so constructed, be erected. 

And \vc wish to bring to your notice the able and faith- 
ful manner in wdiich Mr. Simpson, our superintendent, and 
his amiable wife, have discharged their responsible and ar- 
duous duties, and would recommend that they be retained 
in their positions, if possible. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

TWELFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 

The Trustees of the City Library respectfully submit 
their twelfth annual report of th.e affairs and condition of 
the library. 

It is a matter of gratification to be able to report to the 
City Council, the continued success and prosperity of the 
library, and tliat the use of tlie more valuable and stand- 
ard works contained in it, is on the increase. 

At the time of its institution, the establishing and 
maintaining public libraries for the free use of all the cit- 
izens of a city or town, was almost an untried experiment, 
and grave doubts were entertained of its practicability. 

It had been attempted hi but few instances, and in those 
with varied success. Since that time, most of the cities, 
and many of the larger towns in the state, have established 
libraries for the use of their citizens. The facility with 
which they have been able to do so, has in a great meas-, 
ure been owing to the evident success which followed the 
establishment of the City Library here. 

These public libraries in several of the cities and towns, 
now rival the libraries long established in connection with 
the higher institutions of learning,- and bid fair in a short 
time to surpass tliem not onl}'' in the number of volumes, 
but also in the excellence of their selection. 



125 

The experience of the last twelve years has demonstrat- 
ed that the number of books lost while circulating in the 
hands of the public, is comparatively small; and although 
by constant use, some of the volumes are gradually worn 
out, yet they are generally such as may be from time to 
time easily replaced without undue expense ; and tlie in- 
jury the library sustains from the loss of books, and the 
destruction by use is quite insignificant, compared with the 
constantly increased value gained by the additions which 
are made to it. 

In accordance with the view that was expressed in the 
last report of the trustees, they have caused to be prepared 
a supplement to the catalogue, in form similar to that pub- 
lished last year, and in its general arrangement, like the 
general catalogue of 1863. Audit is intended to continue 
them from year to year, so that the permanent value of the 
library may not be impaired by a want of convenient means 
of ascertaining what it contains. 

In the last report, there was suggested tlie propriety of 
publishing such supplementary catalogues as part of the 
annual reports of the city, but as the form in which the 
catalogues have been prepared and printed will not conve- 
niently admit of theii- being published in connection with 
the city report, while it continues to be published in its 
present form, the trustees have prepared a list of the ad- 
ditions made during the present year, which accompanies 
this report. In order to give the inhabitants of the city 
the means of ascertaining what the additions have been, 
they hope the City Council will authorize the publication 
of the same as part of tiie annual report of the city. 

The trustees are reminded by the increase of the library, 

that in a few years, new and larger accommodations will 

be required for the custody and safe keeping of the library. 

. In their judgment, the only proper mode in which that 

can be done, will be by the erection, by the city, of a suit- 



126 

able fire-proof building. And they would earnestly request 
that a committee of the City Council should be appointed 
to confer witii the trustees, and the agents of the manu- 
facturing companies in the city, in relation to the erection 
of such a building ; and that such a committee be author- 
ized, should they deem it expedient, to procure plans jxnd 
estimates for such a building, and report the same to the 
City Council. 

The high prices of books and periodicals which have pre- 
vailed during the past year, though reduced somewhat from 
that of the year preceding, have not permitted so large au 
addition to. the number of volumes, as the trustees would 
have desired. But they feel confident that the expendi- 
tures for these objects have been prudently and carefully 
made. 

In June last, the librarian, Mr. M. P. Hall, who, since the 
time of his first appoinmcnt has performed the duties of 
that office, to the entire satisfatioh of the board, feeling 
that the salary that the trustees, under the appropriation 
for the library, could be at liberty to pay, was inadequate, 
resigned his position ; and the trustees, though reluctant 
to do so, felt compelled to accept his resignation. 

The board at once selected Mr. B. F. Stanton, to fill the 
vacancy, who has diligently and carefully devoted himself 
to the interests of the library, and will, in the judgment 
of the board, make an acceptable librarian. 

Donations of books have been made by a number of per- 
sons to the library — a list of whom, and of the works pre- 
sented, will be found in the report of the librarian. And 
to them, the trustees, in behalf of the city, tender their 
thanks. 

The details of the operations of the library and its pres- 
ent condition, are stated in the report of the librarian, 
which accompanies this report. 

The report of the treasurer of the trustees, shows a state- 



127 

ment of the items of the expenditures for books and pe- 
riodicals. 

The trustees have to thank the City Council, and the 
other officers of the government with whom the manage- 
ment of the affairs of the library have brought them in 
connection, for their courtesy in all matters relating to its 
operation. 

They have endeavored to keep the expenditures reduced 
to as small a limit as was consistent with the preservation 
and increase of the library. And they ask for tlie coming 
year for such appropriation as will enable them to meet 
the expenditures necessarily incident to the due care and 
protection of the valuable property entrusted to their 
charge.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 

Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees : 

The following report of the operations of the library for 
the year 1865, and of its present condition, is respectfully 
submitted. 

Since the last report, the library has been open to the 
public, two hundred and seventy-eight days, during which 
time forty thousand, two hundred and twenty volumes 
have been delivered ; a daily average of one hundred and 
fortv-five. At the annual examination, eight books were 
missing and not accounted for. 

Four thousand, seven hundred and forty persons have 
furnished the proper vouchers, and received cards which 
entitle them to the privilege of the library. Of these, 
four hundred and ninety have been added since January 
1, 1865. During the same period, eighteen persons have 
deposited money as security for books borrowed. 

The whole number of books, bound volumes and maps 
in the library at the present time, is eleven thousand, eight 
hundred and thirty-seven ; — an increase since the last report 
of five hundred and forty-five volumes. Fifty-eight news- 
papers and periodicals have been regularly received, and 
placed on file during the year. 

From January 1, to January IT, 1865, Mr. M. P. Hall 
received for fines ^5.83, and paid for express, postage, etc., 
$12.74, for which he accounted to the treasurer. Since 
July 1st, I have received for fines 84.75, and paid express 
charges, stationery, etc., •?<8.96. Total amount received 
for fines for the year, $10.58.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



To the City Council : 

The appropriation for tlic support of our public schools 
was much larger the past year, than at any previous time. 
Tho number of schools had increased more rapidly than 
their means of support. At the close of each preceding 
year since 1861, the money was entirely consumed, leav- 
ing many bills to be met by the next year's appropriation. 

To provide for an increased number of teachers, and 
cancel all outstanding bills, the City Council of 1865, as 
signed to the School Department the sum of '$27,000. ■ In 
addition to this, School District No. Two appropriated for 
insurance ^$200, and ^1.200, for repairs, making the entire 
appropriation, including $189 35 unexpended last year, 
$28,589 35. 

This has been expended as indicated in the accompany- 
ing statement of the Treasurer :

Tlie balance in tho hands of the Treasurer, as will bo 
seen, is ^791 21. This is not sufficient to meet all the 
outstanding claims against the department. The exact 
amount of unpaid bills is not ascertained ; but including 
tlie bill for coal, which was purchased of the Manchester 
Print Works, at cost, they will not exceed ^2,000. • 

When we consider the present financial condition of the 
department, and realize the fact that several of our pri- 
mary schools are much too large for a single teacher, we are 
compelled to admit that $30,000 will be required to meet 
the demands of our public schools the coming year. 

With an increased appropriation of 87.000 — though in 
reality but -SI. 000, after paying the debts against us — the 
public would naturally expect us to report an unusual' de- 
gree of " progress" and extraordinary prosperity in our 
schools. In this respect we may fail to meet the public ex- 
pectation. 

Outwardly we have progressed so fiir 9f to secure the 
erection and completion of a durable, convenient and in- 
deed elegant school house in District No. 5, and to secure 
the laying of a substantial foundation for the contem- 
plated High School in the central section of the city. These, 
however, were both the work of special appropriations 
beyond the control of the School Board. Yet they indi- 
cate real progress in our educational efforts, and are the 
indispensable requisites for moral and intellectual growth 
in time to come. 

We can refer with a good degree of satisfaction to com- 
mendable progress on the part of our teachers. Most of 
them labor in the love of their calling ; they are not con- 
tent to follow this year in the beaten path of the past ; but 
strive to direct the minds of their pupils in those liigher 



175 

and nobler pathways to learning which are constantly open- 
ing to the enthusiastic and progressive teacher. 

We may predicate progress in the various grades of our 
schools. The proficiency in some has been greater than in 
former years. But though nearly all have progressed 
quite as rapidly as usual, and though many have labored 
with more zeal than has ordinarily marked their efforts, 
we cannot report that the several grades are as far ad- 
vanced as they have sometimes been at corresponding pe- 
riods of the year. The fact exists that the standard of 
scholarship at tlie last examination was below tlie average. 

The reason of this is evident. The older pupils in our 
higher grades of schools, have been induced by the prices 
of labor to engage in work for a time in our manufactur- 
ing establishments or elsewhere, — thus materially reducing 
the average age of pupils in the Grammar and High 
Schools. Vacant seats in these rooms have been filled by 
the most advanced pupils in the lower grades. Tbe con- 
sequence is that wo have a class of mind less mature and 
less capable of that severe study which is required of older 
scholars. 

Our pupils have-not made progress in their attendance 
on school. The cases of absence and tardiness recorded 
on the teachers' registers sliow tiiat some schools have 
made a retrograde movement, while but few indicate a 
higher percentage of attendance. 

During the early part of the year, our schools were fre- 
quently interrupted by the excitement attending our mill, 
tary successes and the reception of returning regiments to 
their homes. Pupils who impatiently bore tlie restraints of 
the school room, could easily gain their parents' consent to 
remain out of school, under the patriotic pretence of wel- 
coming the soldier. 



116 

We have referred in general terms to the progress made 
by our schools. We are by law required to be more ex- 
plicit.' We must at least report the condition of all the 
schools. If we cannot consider them singly, we can dis- 
pose of them by their respective grades. 

» 

In the rural districts, the schools during the past year 
have been more satisfactory to the people of the several 
sections tlian in the years preceding. Among the best 
schools in the winter term of 18G-4-5, we may record those 
in Nos. 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9. Those which ranked highest in 
the summer term were in Districts Nos. 1, 3 and 6. In 
the autumn term we may report the last Nos. given, and 
add Nos. 4, 8 and 9, in which districts the committee made 
a new selection of teachers. In No. 5, in consequence of 
the dilapidated condition of the house, no school was main- 
tained in the summer. 

In the primary grade of schools, there have been but 
few changes of teachers for many terms, and if the exam- 
ple of a majority of the teachers in those schools could be 
followed by the small minority, our record would be com- 
plete — and we could declare that in 23 schools, not one 
teacher was incompetent — not one unqualified for the re- 
sponsible trust she has received. 

Two permanent changes have been made in the instruc- 
tion of the Middle Schools, one in consequence of the resig- 
nation of an excellent teacher, and the other that more 
wholesome government and more accurate teaching might 
be secured. We have increased the number of Middle 
Schools from nine to eleven. 

These schools as now conducted, afford satisfaction to 
those who desire to see pupils correctly instructed and 
properly disciplined. 



Ill 

In the Grammar grade, or partaking largely of the char- 
acter of Grammar schools, we class the higher school at 
Wilson's Hill — which continues to be well conducted — the 
school at Amoskeag, composed of the older pupils, and a 
similar school at Piscataquog. The Amoskeag school was 
not kept under that control daring the winter, which 
should be exercised over a large class of pupils attending 
it. The summer and autumn terms were deserving of our 
approbation. 

In the Piscataquog Grammar School, a great improve- 
ment has taken place. The pupils are now well graded ; 
the room has been reconstructed, and provision made for 
the Assistant in a room much more suitable to the purpose. 

The Park Street Grammar School has continued to re- 
ceive that rigid discipline and critical instruction which 
lias characterized it in former years. 

The Intermediate School has not registered so large a 
number of pupils as usual tlie past year. During the 
Winter Term it remained under the continued care of 
successful teachers, and numbered among its members 
some excellent scholars. 

Since that time there have been so many changes of 
teachers that the pupils have failed to make that advance- 
ment which we should expect under more permanent in- 
struction. The pi'esent principal of this school is restor- 
ing it to its former efficiency. 

The two principal Grammar Schools of the city have 
for many years maintained a high rank in their class. In 
the South School, an excellent assistant teacher was in- 
duced, by the offer of a higher position and a more liberal 
compensation, to resign her place. Her successor, though 
somewhat inexperienced in the profession, is rendering 
excellent service. 

In the North School there has been no small degree of 
12 



178 

interruption in consequence of the resignation of the prin- 
cipal, and the difficulty in securing a suitable man to succeed 
him. The committee were not successful in their first 
effort, but having now obtained a gentleman who has the 
ability of adapting himself to the position he occupies, 
they have great confidence that the school will hereafter 
maintain a high rank. 

Our High School is constantly gaining in the public 
estimation. The deportment of the pupils is generally 
unexceptionable, and the instruction unsurpassed. 

The accompanying table shows the attendance and av- 
erage standing, in deportment and scholarship, of all the 
pupils of the High School, during the school year ending 
November 15, 1865. 8 is the standard. Many of the low 
marks in deportment are the results of unexcused absence 
and tardiness.

Although the terms of the law have been answered by 
the report thus far, it is proper and may prove beneficial 



183 

to refer to other topics having a bearing on the common 
school interest. 

Custom, in the absence of law,'admits children to the pub- 
lic schools at the age of four years. Nature's law declares 
that tlie health of the child will be promoted, and his use- 
fulness in the future greatly augmented, if the age re- 
quired for admission be at least five years. 

But as we have not the authority to exclude even very 
young children from the school room, wo can employ the 
most prudent and discriminating teachers for the primary 
schools, and so arrange the discipline and instruction, as 
to make the school room a place of attraction and of com- 
fort to the child which is too often sent to school, not so 
much to learn, as to be in a place of safety. 

A former committee authorized the introduction of the 
object method of teaching in our Primary Schools. The 
vote was partially carried into effect. But to adopt the 
plan fully would require that the schools^be reorganized, 
and give to each teacher a much smaller number of pupils 
than is now found in this grade of schools. Besides it 
would be necessary to abandon many of the present class 
exercises in order to afford time for tlie requirements of 
the system. 

To a limited extent the object method is employed, and 
wherever it is adopted, it seems to occupy the mind of the 
pupil, and give him what his nature demands — active em- 
ployment. 

The recent order of the Board reducing the afternoon 
hours of this class of schools, will afford a great relief to 
the impatient boys and girls to whom minutes seem hours, 
in the school room. 

Some years ago, an Evening School was maintained in 
this city, as is now the case in many other manufacturing 



184 

places. The experiment here proved successful, A large 
number of adults came in to join the classes, and gen- 
erally manifested a deep interest in the exercises. It is a 
question worthy the consideration of the City Council — 
whether an appropriation for that purpose would not be 
approved by the people. 

The Superintendent would suggest to the City Council to 
make some provisions for a school census in order to ascer- 
tain the number of children in the city which are entitled 
to school privileges — the number engaged in labor that 
ought during some portion of the year, to be in school, 
and those who are physically or mentally incapacitated to 
attend. The work might be done by the assessors, with 
little extra labor and expense. 

This leads us to the subject of truancy. The percent, of 
attendance at our schools is but j'^^^^j of those whose 
names are recorded as pupils, not to mention those who 
are habitual absentees. Some are compelled to be out of 
school a portion of the time to aid their parents, and this 
they make an excuse for continued absence ; some, we 
have observed occupied in gathering fuel or wfffete material 
about thestreets ; some are debarred the privileges of school, 
by a necessity to labor for the support of the families to 
which they belong ; others for no valid reason, abandon 
the school room, but merely because they dislike its re- 
quirements and cannot endure its restraints. 

The law of the state authorizes the City Council to enact 
such municipal regulations as will remedy the evil. Our 
city ordinance in relation to the matter, makes the City 
Marshal and the Assistant Marshal, and such member of 
the School Committee, as the Board elect, Truant officers. 

The Marslial and his assistant receive no compensation 
especially for this business, and consequently do only what 



185 

the law requires ; while it is not often that a member of 
the School Committee is able to devote any specific time to 
this business. 

Wliat we need is a special officer, whose duty it is to pa- 
trol the streets, visit the places where such idle boys are 
disposed to congregate, investigate cases referred to him 
by teachers and others, and spend his time in this single 
branch of police duty. We urge this matter upon the 
consideration of the City Council, which is legally compe- 
tent to elect and com.pensate such an officer. 

There are other topics which might be properly pre- 
sented, but v/ithout discussing them at this time, we sub- 
mit our report, and invite the attention of the City Council 
and of the public, to its consideration, and to tlie tables 
which are appended.

SUPPLEMENTARY EEPORT. 



The term now closing has not been considered in the 
foregoing report. The delay in the printing, however, af- 
fords us the opportunity of presenting a brief statement of 
the condition of the schools for the last three months. 

In the Central District, the Grammar Schools have reg- 
istered so many more pupils than usual, that an addition- 
al teacher has been required in the schools on Spring and 
Franklin streets. A new principal took charge of the 
North Grammar School at the commencement of the Win- 
ter term, who has thus far met with admirable succes^ 
With these exceptions, the schools in the City proper have 
been conducted by the same teachers as were employed the 
preceding term, and with equally good success. 

In District No. 1, the teacher engaged for the winter 
school, resigned at the expiration of four weeks, not being 
able to gain the good will of the pupils or the confidence 
of the people. A lady who had previously taught the 
School was put in charge of it, and found no difficulty in 
maintaining good order. 

In No. 3, excellent results have attended the efforts of 
the principal, while the assistant, though inexperienced in 
teaching, has given evidence of possessing the elements of 
a successful teacher. 

In No. 4, we believe the teacher, though not very popu- 



152 

lar with the pupils, has done good service in the school 
room. 

In No. 5, the school has been small, but being under 
correct discipline and competent instruction, has made 
gratifying progress. 

Tn No. 6, one of our oldest teachers has given the pu- 
pils very thorough instruction in the chief branches of 
study, and maintained good discipline in the school. 

In No. 7, the school was of but little value. The teach- 
er was not sufficiently strict in his government, nor was 
he sufficiently exacting in his instruction. 

One of our best schools was in District No. 8- 

The schools in Districts 9 and 10, were under the same 
teachers as during the preceding terras, and fully met the 
expectations of the Board. 

In No. 11, a new teacher took charge of the winter 
school, and at first was too indulgent with his pupils, but 
finding it necessary to exercise authority, he placed the 
pupils under a greater restraint, and has since been ac- 
eeptable to the people of the district. 



REPORT OF THE ENGINEER 



ON THE SURVEY OF THE 



MANCHESTER AND KEENE RAILROAD. 



To the City Council of the City of Manchester : 

Having been employed by the late Mayor, Hon. D. J. 
Daniels, under a Rssoliition of the City Council, to make 
a survey of a Railroad route from Manchester to Keenoi 
the following report, and accompanying plan and profile 
•f the line, embracing the results of such survey, is re- 
spectfully submitted. 

"With several gentlemen interested in the enterprise, I 
made a partial reconnoisance of the routes proposed, 
previous to commencing the survey. It was appa- 
rent, from the situation of the termini of the proposed 
Railroad — one in the valley of the Merrimack river, and 
the other substantially in the valley of the Connecticut, 
with the Contoocook river intervening, which runs nearly 
parallel with these, but in the opposite direction — that the 
principal obstructions to be encountered would be the high 
lands between these rivers : and it was evident that the 
highest summit would be found between the Contoocook 
and the Connectiout. To make the ascent to this summit 
on the most favorable ground, and the better to accommo- 
date the business in the vicinity of the route, it was deemed 
advisable to vary the central part of the line from a direct 
13 



194 

course, by bearing to the south so as to cross the Contoo- 
cook river on a higher lever, and as near the center of the 
enterprising town of Peterborough as possible. At this 
place Goose Brook forms its junction with the Contoocook 
river, and the easiest grades to the summit selected at 
Harrisville, lie along its banks. Aside from this deviar 
tion, the general course of the route is very direct. 

Having obtained a general idea of the main features of 
the country to be traversed, I commenced the survey on 
the 14th day of August, and continued in the field seven 
weeks. Some changes on the westerly portion of the line 
have since been made, however. 

The following is a more particular description of the 
route surveyed. It commences at Parker's Station — a 
Station on the Manchester & North Weare Railroad, (for- 
merly the New Hampshire Central Railroad,) about ten 
miles from Manchester, and near the confluence of the two 
main branches of the Piscataquog river. Thence it takes 
a westerly course immediately crossing the north branch 
of the river, which is the boundary line between Goffstown 
and New Boston, by a bridge of a hundred feet span. — 
Thence following the south branch of the stream, the line 
crosses it twice at a sharp turn, by bridges of one hun- 
dred and twenty-five feet span each. Whether these bridg- 
es may not be avoided to advantage, by keeping all the 
way on the north side of the stream, further surveys ■will 
determine. From this point the route lies upon the north 
bank of the river to Smith's Mill, above New Boston Vil- 
lage. Gregg's brook, a considerable stream midway be- 
tween Parker's Station and the village named, is crossed 
near its junction with the Piscataquog river, by a bridge 
of a hundred feet span. No other obstruction is encoun- 
tered worthy of note, until new Boston Village is reached. 
Here the most favorable ground for the location of a Rail- 
road, is so much occupied with buildings, that the survey 



195 

was made upon tho immediate bank of the river, and part- 
ly in it, in rear of the hotel. This location avoids a more 
expensive right of way, although a considerable amount of 
stone work is required to ensure security to the road bed, 
from the effects of water and ice in the river. 

After passing this place, the route lies very near the 
highway to Smith's Mill, where it crosses the river to the 
south side, but very soon returns to the north side of the 
stream, and there continues by Hopkins' saw mill and 
King's Village or Gougeville. The stream is again cross- 
ed at the highway bridge, just below Ira Gage's saw mill 
and passes into the town of Lyndeborough, leaving the 
valley of the river to the right, thus avoiding the very 
crooked, narrow and ledgy falls between the last named 
mill and the meadow above. The route selected, lies in 
the valley of a small stream, and is nearly straight, but a 
grade of 73.92 feet per mile is required to make the as- 
cent to the " Parker Tavern Stand" on the Francestown 
Turnpike, in the rear of which the line is surveyed. — 
Thence following near the Turnpike, the South line of 
Francestown is crossed near the school house. Just above, 
are the four corners or Fisher's corner, where the main 
travelled road from Manchester to Francestown intersects 
with the Turnpike. Here the line bears more to the west, 
and comes again into the valley of the river, and follows 
along its banks to a point near the house of J. D. Hardy, 
about one mile easterly of Greenfield Center, and near the 
head waters of this branch of the Piscataquog river. From 
the Turnpike to this point, the line passes over a rugged 
country, but no very heavy work is required. 

Continuing westerly from Hardy's, a grade of 73.92 feet 
per mile is again used to reach the summit on the Forest 
road south of Greenfield Centre, it being the highest point 
of land attained between the eastern terminus and the 
Contoocook river. It is also very near where the water 



196 

is drained in three directions, to the Piscataquog river on 
the east, the Stony brook, or Souhegan river, on the 
south, and the Contoocook river on the west. At the 
Forest road, a bridge is required to carry the highway 
over the railroad. The line through the town of Green- 
field is much more expensive than any other portion of the 
route yet described, in consequence of the heavy earth- 
work necessary on either side of the summit. — Several 
hundred feet of trestle work near Mr. Hardy's may be 
used to advantage. 

From examinations made since the survey -was com- 
pleted, I am confident that there is a route north of the 
Center of the town, where both the grade and cost of con- 
struction can be very much reduced and the distance but 
slightly increased. After passing this place, the line takes 
a more southerly course and follows the outlets of Cragin 
and Spofford's ponds, crossing the stream just below both 
Hopkins' and Morrison's Mills. Thence following near the 
highway leading from Greenfield to Peterborough, reaches 
the bank of the Contoocook river just below Peterborough 
North Village, and continues by the highway and along tho 
interval land to Peterborough Centre. 

A route was surveyed from the North Village to West 
Peterborough through a depression in the range of hills 
between those points ; but it was not deemed so favorable 
as the route through the Centre of the town, which in- 
creases the distance only 1 -^-^^ miles. 

It is proposed to cross the Contoocook river south of 
the principal part of the village of Peterborough Centre, on 
a bridge of 150 feet span, and 40 feet above the Avater. 
This height is sufficient to elevate the Railroad above the 
highway west of the river, and avoids any more cutting in 
the sand bluff near the highway than is required to make 
the fill by the river. The amount of earthwork and 



197 

masonry may be materially reduced by using trestle work 
at either end of the bridge. 

Leaving this place the line curves more to the North 
over a sandy ascent on a grade of 80 feet per mile near 
the old highway, to the interval land between Peter- 
borousrh Centre and West Peterboroua:h — runninsr wester- 
ly of the farm house formerly owned by the Jale Gov. 
Steele, and passing along a precipitous side hill in rear of 
the old factory at West Peterborough. The curve at this 
place will be quite sharp, and the work heavy, but there 
are no indications of ledge above the grade line. 

Continuing on we cross the Dublin stage road in front of 
the residence of J. W. Little, Esq., at grade — pass in the 
rear of the row of boarding houses opposite the new mill, 
and cross the mill pond just above the highway bridge. 
Thence following along the bank of the stream a short 
distance on an ascending grade of 80 feet per mile, we 
reach an extensive meadow extending about four miles 
with a fall of only about 48 feet, and most of this at the 
Paper Mill of P. C. Cheney, Esq. Tiie survey was made 
just east of Mr. Cheney's Mill and residence — crosses the 
brook at the head of his mill pond, and continues on the 
low ground nearly to the head of the meadow, where the 
ascent commences to overcome the level of North Pond. 
This pond is 245 feet higher than the meadow, and the 
distance between them about 2| miles. 

It was believed that a grade of 100 feet per mile would 
be required here, and the line was run with that view ; but 
the survey shows that a grade of 85 feet to the mile may 
be used without materially increasing the cost of construc- 
tion. Tliis may be accomplished by commencing the 
ascent sooner, and varying the line to higher ground, 
further to the west at the head of the meadow, and gradu- 
ally approaching the present line at North Pond. 

After attaining the elevation of this pond the line pur- 



198 

sues a westerly course along its northern border, crossing 
the highway several times before reaching Harrisville. A 
ridge of land making down near the shore of the pond is 
encountered, which is supposed to be mostly ledge, and is 
so considered in the estimates. Goose Brook which fur- 
nishes the water power at Harrisville, is crossed immedi- 
ately below the manufactory of Mr. Perry. 

The line then continues by almost a straight course 
across a meadow. An ascent of 40 feet is then made by 
wliicli the highest point of land on the route is attained, 
being about 1065 feet above the Depot at Manchester, 945 
feet above Parker's Station in Goffstown, 367 feet above 
the summit in Greenfield, 531 feet above the water in the 
Contoocook river at the point of crossing, 727 feet above 
the track of the Cheshire Railroad at the proposed junc- 
tion, and about 1300 feet above the level of the sea. ' 

The length of cutting at this summit is about 900 feet, 

and the greatest depth is 22 feet, a part of which is pre- 
sumed to be rock. Davis Pond, or Mud Pond, as it is 
generally called, is situated immediately west of this 
height of land and is so surrounded by hills as to make the 
route very objectionable on either side, on account of the 
sharp curves necessary on one hand, and expensive earth- 
work and perhaps ledge on the other. 

To avoid these objections the line was run through the 
pond at a narrow place, 370 feet across, where the water 
does not exceed 8 feet in depth as is averred by people liv- 
ing in the vicinity, no means then being at hand for sound- 
ing it. 

The level grade of the summit extends across this pond, 
and nearly through a cut further west, which averages 
about 10 feet in depth, where the descent towards the waters 
of the Connecticut river is commenced. Within | of a 
mile of this point there is a fall of 80 feet, where a grade 
of 105 feet to the mile is employed ou the line surveyed. 



199 

This grade can readily be reduced by making the same 
change as is suggested in relation to the grade near North 
Pond. 

The line then continues very near the County Road, and 
along the outlet of Davis and Breed Ponds, past Bemisville 
to the Reservoir at the head of what is known as, "the 
Gulf." This portion of the route two miles in length, is 
over a level country, descending only twenty feet in the 
distance named, and is easy of construction. 

Arriving at the head of the Gulf, we are confronted by 
the most difficult and expensive part of the route. The 
surveys show the elevation to be 605 feet above the Chesh- 
ire Railroad at .South Keene, and the distance by the most 
natural route to be 5 ^^^ miles, making an average grade 
of 118 feet to tlie mile the entire distance. The elevation 
of the reservoir above Marlborough, village 2|- miles be- 
yond, is about 483 feet, so that on a direct route an 
average grade as before, the line opposite the village, would 
be about 188 feet above the county road and stream. It will 
readily be understood that a Railroad built on the slopes of 
the hills at this elevation above tlie stream, with whicli it 
is parallel, and crossing numerous tributaries and deep 
ravines, would incur an expenditure far beyond what the 
probable business of the route would warrant ; and to in- 
crease the grades above the average before named, would 
be a serious objection. 

The only alternative seemed to be to find a route con- 
necting with the Cheshire Railroad on a higher level, or 
to increase the distance of this route by running a circu- 
itous line. Such observations of the country were made 
as to induce the belief that a feasible route with easy 
grades may be found, by leaving the present line below 
Davis' pond, and keeping upon higher ground to the south 
of Marlborougli village, so as to connect with the Cheshire 
Railroad in the vicinity of Troy. For the present purpose^ 
it was not deemed necessary to survey such a route. 



200 - 

Several trial lines were run with a view to avoid the Gulf, 
and are indicated upon the plan by dotted lines. The line 
upon which the estimates are based, commencing at the 
Reservoir at the head of the Gulf — bears to the right of 
the stream, and follows very near what is known as the 
Colony route for a county road, to a point one mile from 
the Reservoir. In leaving the valley of the main stream 
below Clapp Pond Brook, it will be necessary to make a 
ledge cutting estimated at ten thousand yai'ds. Diverg- 
ing from the Colony route, at the po int above named, by a 
sharp curve to the left, we cross the main stream and 
Gulf by a bridge of two hundred and fifty feet span, and 
more than one Imndred feet above the water. The banks 
are mainly ledge, and so nearly perpendicular as to re- 
quire a moderate amount of stone work with a bridge of 
the above length. Immediately beyond the bridge an em- 
bankment fifty-five feet in height is required. It is pro- 
posed to raise tliis within thirty feet of the grade line, with 
earth, and use trestle work for the balance. 

Then curving again to the left, the line passes above 
the house of Mr. Gates, and also above the old pottery, 
and continues eastwardly about two-fifths of a mile. 
Then .by a curve to the right, describing a full half cir- 
cle, it crosses the county road and to the south side of 
Robbins' brook — follows down the same, keeping south of 
Lowellville, and near the Congregational Church at Marl, 
borough Village. Thence pursuing a direct course to 
South Keene, the line lies south of the Hotel, aid cross- 
es the county road near Tenney's Mills, at an elevation of 
thirty-seven feet. Thence across the Mill Pond, by a 
bridge forty feet above the water, to higher ground 
north of the stream. A bridge of 150 feet span, and 
500 of trestle work, is contemplated to cross the stream. 
The "Nortli Branch," is crossed near its junction with the 
other stream, and requires a bridge of 75 feet span. 



201 

Thence to the proposed junction with the Chesliire Rail- 
road, 700 feet northerly of the stone arch bridge at South 
Keene, the grade is nearly level and the work light, with 
the exception of a heavy cut opposite the chair manufac- 
tory. 

The bridge and embankments over the highway andTen- 
ney's mill pond at Marlboro' Village, will require a heavy 
outlay. It is questionable whether a more favorable loca- 
tion may not bo had, by keeping on the south side of the 
stream, thus avoiding the bridge over the North Branch, 
and much of the heavy expense of the bridges occasioned 
by the great elevation above the highway and stream at 
Tenney's Mills. 

By the route just described, the distance from the Res- 
ervoir to the proposed junction, is 7 15-100 miles, being an 
increase of about two miles over a direct course. The av- 
erage grade is about 85 feet to the mile. To lessen the ex- 
pense, it will be necessary to increase this grade at some 
points, and reduce it at others. 

It will not be expected that in the brief time occupied 
in the field, the best routes in all cases could be selected. 
Before a final location is decided upon, further and more 
careful surveys will be required. But enough is here pre- 
sented to show the general character and feasibility of the 
route. 

By the survey, the entire length of new road necessary 
to form the connecting link between Manchesterand Keene, 
is 46 miles. The general features of the country trav- 
ersed, are as favorable for the economical construction of a 
Railroad, as the average of New England routes, where 
roads are already in operation. 

The materials to be used for graduation and masonry, are 
generally easy of access, and in great abundance. Good 
granite is found in nearly every place where any great 
amount of masonry is required ; and loose gravel may be 



202 

had at convenient distances along tlie line, for forming a 
bed for the track. The curves will compare favorably with 
those in use upon other roads. 

Tlie following estimates have been made with care, and 
are believed to be sufficient to cover the cost of the road 
and equipments, at the ruling prices. Any reduction in 
the price of labor and materials will produce a correspond- 
ing reduction in the cost of tlie road. 

The price of iron — one of the great items — depends very 
much upon the currency, and the action of Congress in re- 
gard to duties. At the present time, with gold at 1.40, 
imported rails may be obtained for $80 per ton. 

The computations for grading and masonry, have been 
made for a road bed for one track, 20 feet wide in excava- 
tions, to give space for drainage, and 15 feet wide on em- 
bankments, with the usual slope of lo to 1. 

A consi«lerable portion of the material on the route be- 
ing unsuitable for the road bed, it is contemplated to con- 
struct the road in such places at sub grade, to be raised af- 
ter the track is laid, and brought to the proper surface with 
sand or gravel. 

The estimate for th^ superstructure is based upon a rail 
of the usual pattern, 24 feet long, and weighing 66 lbs. 
per linear yard, connected together at the joints with the 
most approved splice, and firmly spiked to sleepers eight 
feet long and six inches thick. 

For convenience, the estimates have been made in di- 
visions, so that the cost of any part of the line niay be 
known.

Furniture necessary to operate the Road, 115.000 00 



Total estimated cost of road and equipments, $1,600,000 00 

It will be seen by the foregoing, that the total estimatod 
cost of the road, furniture and fixtures, is 81.500.000, be- 
ing an average of 132.608 70 per mile. This is considered 



207 

sufficient to complete the work at the present time, and is 
about fifty per cent, above an estimate, based upon the cost 
of such work previous to the late war. 

The line traverses a section of country, now partially 
deprived of Railroad facilities, and furnishes a means of 
communication between the eastern and western parts of 
tlie State now reached only by circuitous routes through 
a neighboring state. The distance by this proposed route 
from Manchester to Keene, being upwards of thirty miles 
less than by existing lines, gives a corresponding diminu- 
tion of the distance between Keene and all points on the 
Concord and Portsmouth Railroads, Boston and Maine 
Railroad, and other Railroads east of Manchester ; and a 
similar saving is made from Manchester and places east to 
all points on the Cheshire and Rutland Railroad beyond 
Keene. 

The total expense of the survey is more than double the 
amount of the appropriation made by the City Council of 
the City of Manchester, it having been understood at the 
time it was commenced, that a portion of the expense 
would be borne by the friends of the enterprise along the 
line, and at Keene and vicinity. In accordance with that 
view, the necessary funds beyond the appropriation were 
guaranteed by the Hon. Milan Harris of Harrisville, and 
the Messrs. Colony of Harrisville and Keene, to whom with 
Col. Converse of Marlborough, and others I am under obli- 
gations for valuable aid, as well as to the citizens generally 
for their kindness and hospitality. I am also indebted to 
Messrs. C. K. Walker, T. P. Kinsley, G. E. Evans and 
others for assistance in the prosecution of the Survey, 
plan and estimate. 

All of which is respectfully submitted, 

JAMES A. WESTON, Engineer. 

Manchester, N. H., January 1866.
