ANNUAL MEETING FOR GRANTING LICENSES. The above meeting of Justices took place at the Court House on Wednesday. Much excitement pre vailed in town amongst the licensed victuallers, and great interest was excited in consequence of the sup posed determination of tbc magistrates to reduce con siderably the numoer ot public nouses, in pursuance to a resolution passed at the last annual meeting, with only one dissentient. The Court House was crowded with visitors, and the scene was perhaps the most ludi crous, with the exception of the road act meeting, ever witnessed in Launceston. It is impossible to give any report of such confused and irregular proceedings. The noisy chattering and uncontrolable enthusiasm of some of the Justices, reminded us of the confusion of tongues in the tower of Babel.
