PUBLICANS' LICENSING ACT. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 July 1861

PUBLICANS' LICENSING ACT. [CONTBIBOTED.] THE petition from the Brisbane and Ipswich publicans, presented to the Legislativo As- sembly by Mr. BLAKENKT on Thursday last, affords us an opportunity of directing public attcntiou to certain defects in the practical operation of the law relating to tho sale of wines and spirituous liquors. With the main object of the petition understanding i hut its main object is to bring about such a change in the law as will pre- vent any arbitrary or tyrannical exercise of the discretion which is loft to the Justices of tho Peace, in petty sessions assembled, to refuse the removal of a license-we have no quarrel. But if it is proposed to do away with such discretionary power, then we would favor a change of a more radical and much more important cha racter. It would be unjust and inexpedient to make it optional with the Bunch to grant licenses, and not to leave it also at their option to withhold or refuse licenses ; and if good cause can bo shown why...

BRIDGE AT CONDAMINE. A runtic meeting of the inhabitants of tho Condamine and Maranoa districts, was held on the 21th ultimo, pursuant to an advertise- ment, calling for public expression of opinion on the adverse voto of parliament with regard to the construction of a bridge at the town- ship of Condamine. The mooting was numer- ously attended, and the poo feeling which seemed to animate it was that of indignation at the contemptuous manner in which their interests had been canvassed by the represen- tatives of their colony. ... On the motion of Mr. W. 1?. KENNEDY, se- conded by Mr. SIM, Mr. Milos was voted into the chair. The CHAIRMAN commenced by stating that they vrcre all fully acquainted with the rea- sons for which they were asscmblod that evening - that, through misrepresentation, the want of sufficient explanation, or infor- mality in presenting, the very numerously signed petition had failed to have its effect, and the petitioners vrovo likely tobo for some considerable ti...

IPSWICH. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] MONDAY (YESTERDAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 July 1861

IPSWICH. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] MONDAY (YESTERDAY.) Bisnop TUFNELL preached at St. Paul's morning and evening yesterday. The number of persons of tho Jewish per- suasion is rapidly increasing hero. There is a petition already prepared and also signed, praying for a grant of land for a place of Jewish worship, and also for a grant for a burial ground. The latter is a pressing ne- cessity, for Jews cannot bo buried with Christians, and tho land adjoining tho burial grounds will all of it bo alienated very soon. I expect thoro will be a brisk competition at the next land sale. From tho rapidity with which land here is sold, and the prices it fetches, together with the very flourishing condition of tho building sociotics, it would appear that property is not likely to deteriorate in valuo for some timo to come. Many private houses, as well as shops, aro springing up, and specifications havo been drawn out for several buildings and additions to buildings in East and Bell streets, ...
