There were four applications for new licenses: Charles Coward, for a house at Mount Direction, H. B. Little, for one at Hadspen, and Joseph Thorn and James Lilly, for houses in Launceston; but as, in consequence, of the lieutenant-governor having limited the number to be issued in this district to sixty-one, there was only one vacancy–caused by the refusal of Cook’s license, the meeting was adjourned until the 17th instant, for the further hearing of the applications.

A great want of order was manifested at the meeting on Monday: on some occasions the confusion and uproar was so great as to prevent the possibility of hearing the names called over by the clerk of the peace.
