Tampering With Sailors - The captain of the schooner Annie Craig made a report before the Police Magistrate this morning that he had hired two hands for his vessel at twenty dollars a month, and that several young men at the dock had interfered, and prevented them from going aboard unless an advance of five dollars per month was made in their wages. The men were afterwards brought before the Magistrate, and the law on the subject read and explained to them, when they consented to go to work for the amount of wages agreed upon, namely, twenty dollars. Certain of those who prevented them from fulfilling their engagement were brought up at the same time, and discharged with a reprimand.
