DISTRICT COUNCIL. . 'rIE District Council held a quar terly meeting yesterday afternoon. Present,' one member, who voted himself into the. chair, and moved, seconded and carried a motion for. the:adjournment.of the meeting. ! In connection with the subject of the validity of the Distric.t Charter; and may we mention that, - in a late numtiber of the London Times, we flid that Her Majesty, has granted a Supplementary Charter to the Royal College of Surgeons, nullifying, altering, and amending certain clauses in their old charter. This fact serves to overturn the doctrine propounded by the colo nial lawyers, that. 'a charter,.after being issued, cannot be revoked or altered.

THE SMELTING TRADE AT NEW CASTLR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 3 September 1845
THE SMELTING TRADE AT NEW. CASTLIE. Froml the Maitland Mercury. StNcs our last we have been informed that somo of the owners of the copper mines of South Australia, finding that the heavy expenses of trans. mitting their ores to England to be smoelted make too serious an inroad on their profits, are anxious to ascer tain whether they cannot be smelted in the colonies to more advantage, and what facilities the port of New castle offers for. carrying on the smelting trade. The comparative cost of freight in conveying the ores to England and to Newcastle is an importkant it~em in the consideration. The distance to the former is about 15,000 miles, to the latter about 1500; and although the difference in the cost of freight would scarcely be in the samne , pro portion, a very considerable saving might nevertheless be effected, pro bably to the extent of two-thirds, as the craft engaged in bringing the ores to Newcastle might take back return cargoes of coal.
