A Ntw Plan Proposed?Amid all tbe conI troversy about Ik-ense laws, the Albany Argns suggests tbe plan of leaving tbe sale of I liquors free and lisensing drinkers, as it is tbe drinking. net the telling, that does tbe misI chief. The license should provide that -no man should be entitled to dr?nk unless be first I got a license, and any bar keeper who should I sell to an unlicensed party should be subject I to fine and imprisonment. Tbe license should I be annual; and tbe sum charged shonld be I from to viOfi. No young man shonld be allowed a license till he was sixteen, and then I and until twenty-one years ol' age, only a beer I license at a moderate charge. After twenty. I one be conid vote, drink and cbew tobacco I upon payment of license; and the same priviI lege shonld be extended to strong-minded women. Some men whose constitutions ut1 terly nnfit them for potations, abould be reI fused a license altogether. They are non-inI snrable.' Before taking out his license a citizen wonld have time to reflect; aad as they I would have to pay in advance for tbe glorious I privilege, tbe reflection wonld be forced upon I most people. It Is trne that witb these parchI ment privileges, we shonld have a titular nebility of drink: bnt lofty as this aristocracy might be at night, and in tbe -wee sma' hours ot tbe morning, tbe next day it wonld be abject enough! There need be no tear to our demoI cratic institutions from (class privileged to three inflations, at tbe penalty of such depressions." ThbGospul wot Pruachbd to thiMapsio.
