HAY. == THE WATERWORKS COMPANY (LIMITED). The sixth annual meeting of the shareholders in the above company was held in the Town-hall on Monday last. J F. R. Trumper, Esq., having been called to the chair, commenced the proceedings by calling upon the secretary (Mr. Griffiths) to read the report and state- ment of accounts for the past year, which we append THE SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT. In submitting their report, it is gratifying to the directors to be in a position to state, that through the instrumentality of some of the shareholders the balance of £1025 12s. 2d. due to the bank on the 2nd August last, has been reduced to E394 6s. 5d. But the directors express a hope that such as have not hitherto taken additional shares, or subscribed to the undertaking, will be good enough to do so at once, in order to enable them to liquidate the bank claim, and they confidently trust that- looking to the future prospects of the company-the appeal thus made for effecting the above object will not be in vain. The affairs of the company are such as to warrant, at the en- suing meeting, the declaration of a dividend of 5 per cent. (free of Income Tax), from 31st December last, amounting to about £ 45, which, added to the amount of £ 394 6s. 5d. due from the company, will increase the balance to f439 6s 5d., thereby shew- ing that upwards of SO shares are necessarily required to be taken up for the purpose of clearing all liabilities against the company. At the approaching meeting one third of the directors will retire from office, but are eligible for re-election.
