A meeting of "Williams's Patent Mineral Charcoal and Oil Company" was held yesterday, at the offices of the solicitors, Messrs. Tyndall, Son, and Johnson, Waterloo Street, to receive the report of the directors, and the balance-sheet to June last; Samuel Booth, Esq., In the chair. The business was merely formal, but very satisfactory statement was made as to the operations of the company, more particularly during the last six months, and the directors expressed their unabated confidence in the success of the undertaking, all the calculations made as to the yield of oil, being fully borne out by the actual results, although the production had hitherto been on a limited scale, owing to the necessity of erecting ovens, and other appliances of manufacture. After votes of thanks to the directors, who were re-elected, and to the manager, Mr. Williams, the proceedings terminated.
