it' will probably render him a bankrupt.—
Not the mechanic, , for it will cause 'him to

so, he will Thee hie' 'customers... Not the

Temperance in Lexington, 4.--We

meeting would be held in Lexington, Ky.,.
and that a Berson would appear at the meet

Old Pennsylvania Getting Right.
TA VERN• LICENCES.
In Pennsylvania, tavern . licences, which
'bring ,it few dollars of tatceach.,into the
State treasury, are" granted on application
by petition to fife I :culty Courts. It is
an easy matter, as every one khows, to
obtain a few _names for any reasonable
purpose; and it is, asAye hear, a rare thing,
in that State, for these applications for li
cense to 'keep a .house of public entertain
ment,' to be rejected by the courts. The
facility with which pe tions„to that end
have been signed, an , the prayer,oLtlie _
petitioner, in due co rse . granted , by` the
court, has resulted i a great and serious
evil, by a multiplication of "taverns" to a
number far be, and that requiied by the
public convenience or necessity. •
'During the present session- of the legit
' lature of , that State, a bill has beeti -report
ed,‘ in obedience to - public
i opinion, the ob
ject of which is to nterpoke some obstacle
to this facility of obtaining licet.ces, and as
a consequenee, some , barrier to the' evils
thence arising: This bill, we observe, has
had rather .a hard struggle' through the
ouse of Representatives—being the body
.freshest from the people;:and has lOsilsome
of its more efficient provisions in the pre
cess. ' But it has finally passed hoth Hous
es' and if not vetoed by Qty. Porter, will
undoubtedly accomplish something in the
nature of remedial action„for the evil Com
plained of. One of ,the p rovisi onsof the
requires that - public notice 'shall be
be given in the newspaperii; of the proper.
county or•district..of all interuled applies- _
tiolie for tavern licegies, aiid that itself will
:ccomplish much in the way of reform.—
This • measure •is besides clearly just.—
lionses of " public entertainment," are.
matters of public cnhOern ;. and..therefore
thepublicshould,be advised of the prelim-
inary amps in . regard io them; and should
become acquainted with the individuals
who ask the important privilege of opening
such ,housesi fOr the "pdblic,convenience..!'
