p.2 On A Strike - The Ship Carpenters of the Marine Railway struck on Thursday afternoon, on account of a couple of men being put to work along with them, who were not journeymen carpenters, and work has been suspended in the yard. It appears that some of the Yankee dodges, such as Tradesman's Unions, have been introduced into the yard, and the men have formed themselves into a "Ship Carpenters' Union", and one of its features is not to permit any one but a journeyman to work in the same yard. The sooner these notions are expelled the better, and we hope that the owners of the yard will not meet the desires of the strikers, as they are anything but reasonable.
