Od., was recommended. A letter was read from Sir John Jonea Jenkins, who wrote he was extremely sorry that in oorsequenoe of being obliged to ap. pear as a witness at the Assizes at Cardiif, he was unable to attend the meeting. Ha would lige to have t 'n presoot to explain that the dividend was Hater this half-year in consequence of a conversation which took place 1 the last half-yearly meeting of shareholders, when he pointed out that they paid over C50 per annum in bank charges, which could be avoided if the dividends were paid early in April and October. He was also sorry not to be present to con- gratulate the shareholders upon the extra hali per cent. dividend. They had the gra- tification of looking forward to a further in- crease of half per cent, per annum in the October dividend, which would be at the rate of six per cent per annum, and con. tinue so for another three half-years, when a, lurther half per cent. would be added. The delay had probably caused the share- holders £ «me inoonvenienoe this half-year, but future dividends would follow at re- gular intervals of six months in early Aprd and October. The lessees were keening the line in perfect order. They appeared to he working it to the best advantage, and lie had no doubt that uliimateiy they wond be fully recompensed for having taken over, this valuable concern as part of their taking Mrs. Daniel proposed adoption of the ac- counts Mr. Street seconded, and the mo- tion was carried iimid remarks of satisfac- tion.
