POLICE TELEGRAPH.

This important auxiliary to police operations has been used to great advantage during the past year. As a police agent its value can hardly be overestimated. The superintendent of the telegraph reports that there have been transmitted over the wires during the year 17,459 messages of which a record has been kept, and that fully as many more have passed between station-houses, of which no record has been kept at the central office. There have been 136 lost children restored to parents through its agency, and 97 lost horses returned to their owners. Besides the above, it has proved to be a great public convenience in many other ways.

The tabular exhibits submitted herewith represent in a more detailed manner the workings of the police force during the past year.

· Attention is also respectfully called to the annexed reports of the treasurer of the board, the property clerk, and the board of surgeons, setting forth the operations of their respective offices.
