Description
Full Text

      When the schr. MAGDALA got outside the Oswego piers last week on her last trip out, the order being given to make sail, the crew refused to pull a rope. After much coaxing the Captain induced 2 of them to help make sail, but the rest went into the forecastle and stayed there till the dinner hour, when they came up and made a rush for the table. The Captain refused to give them anything to eat, and did not give them any food for 2 days. The 2 who assisted to navigate the vessel were union men. One shipped in Buffalo and the other in the canal for $1.50 a day. - Oswego Palladium.
