Important Correction. The Harrisburg Herald calls attention to an important proviso in the new license bill that was omitted in the firsfpublication of the law at Harrisburg, and generally throughout the State. It was added to the bill as an amendment in the Senate, and is in these words: "Provided further—That 60 much of any act or acts of Assembly, as require a license from a city or county Treasurer to authorize the sale of spiritous, vinous or malt liquors, be, and the same is hereby repealed." This clause refers to the licenses, for restaurants, eating and oyster-houses and groceries selling by the quart, and uncondition¬ ally repeals Treasurer's licenses. As they are invariably, we believe, granted about the first of May, none but tavern keepers will be permitted to sell pnder the old law until October next, or until their licences expire.— Proprietors of eatingrhouses, groceries, &c, cannot procure license until October, as has generally been supposed; and all tij...
