Miscellaneous Statistics [on the Social Condition of the People]
In this district there were 3 inns, hotels and taverns,…..10 retail stores…..
REMARKS ON THE HARVEST OF 1864 – Nearly all the crops raised within my district, during the year of 1864 were about one fourth lighter than in previous years, in consequence of drouth and Grasshoppers. Potatoes which were planted late, were very fine, while those which were planted early, were nearly, and in some cases, a total failure. The number of domestic animals kept by those who occupy no farming lands? …. 25 horses, …..40 cows.
REMARKS ON THE MORTALITY OF THE YEAR ENDING JUNE 1, 1865. The mortality of the year in this District is from what I can learn about the same as that of former years.
REMARKS ON THE INFLUENCE OF THE WAR UPON PRICES –
Average Monthly Pay (including board) of farm laborers through the summer months? $30 What by the Year? $300 What were these wages in 1860? $10 less per month. Relative increase in price of farmlands since 1860? About one fifth. How has the war affected the amount of debt between individuals? Not very much as I can learn. What effect upon credit? No perceptible change. Has it tended to promote prompt payments? I think not. ….Influenced amount of crime? No change to notice. Influenced pauperism? Has increased it slightly. What other changes in the social condition of the people have you observed since 1860? …. We have more widows, in number, than before the war; several of our young married men, who volunteered to aid in our country’s defence, have died and left wives & children & have in most cases left but little or nothing for their support.
