Full Text

The Carpenters and Joiners Union have put up a commodious shop on West First Street, a few rods south of the Oswego & Syracuse R.R. depot. it was put up by contribution, and is occupied by members of the Union who are taking and executing contracts on their own account.

We understand that the Ship Carpenters and Caulkers Union are about to start a Union Grocery Store for their own benefit. They intend to buy at wholesale prices, will detail members of the Union to act as clerks, and will sell at a trifling advance on the wholesale rates. Their design is simply to protect themselves from the oppressive tariff of high prices.
