Logan as of a force that had passed away, but as living, moving energy, still uselirt in the great purposes of divine economy, in all that Gen. Logan did and said, he was a truly sincere and resolutely upright man. No guile, no evasion, no liuesse charac terized him, but he was a bold, pro nounced, dignified, earnest, manly, firm, generous, true man. WADE HAMPTON’S ESTIMATE.

New York, Feb. 9.—Except for the, number of longshoremen standing idle on til*corners, the streets along the river front have assumed almost their normal appearance, though it requires a larger number of men to do the work now than formerly. The steamboat and railroad pier managers all claim that business is as good sfls before the strike, and thaf freight is being moved with the utmost! facility. Steamers are now leaving as the advertised time and the iam of on the railroad piers no l^pTexlsts. BOTH STRIKES KL .CUES. The Commercial Advertiser of till* morning eays regarding the big strike! “The strike of the railroad freight band* lers in this city was a week Old last night. Tne longshoremen quit work on Jang 27. both strikes are now acKMUcd iv< q by their projectors to be failures. They* have not helped the cause of the coa| handlers nor brought about any Increase ot pay. They have not even seriously interfered with the business of the com panies against which the movement was directed. There never was a great labo* movement in New York city which failed! so miserably as these strikes. INCREASED LABOR COMPETITION. At present there are 8,714 freight handlers aDd longshoremen idle in New York city as a result of the strike. Two weeks ago these men had steady employj ment at good wages. Most of tbesa laborers will never regain the places tfceji left at the command of the Knights of Labor. Probably half of the men wha have taken strikers’ places have bee* brought from other cities. Now that they* have secured good and steady employ ment they will stay. The strikers have* therefore, succeeded in adding 3,000 pood to the laborers of New York, and hava thus decreased their own chances for get. ting employment hereafter. Besides th* wages they have lost and the suffering they have brought on themselves and their families, these are the only tangible! ’results the strikers have gained. LOSSES IN WAGES, The loss in wages to date is an item a great dual larger than most imagine. There are 1.014 freight handlers on the East and North rivers who have, with to-day, lost seven days work on ac count of the strike. Their average wages wlion a work are $1 66 a day. They hava lokt, therefore, SIB,IBO siuce they have been idle. There are 7,200 longshoremen along the North aud East rivers who will have been idle on account of the strike* two weeks to-morrow. Probably thev averaged $2 60 a day for the most part at this season ol tbe year. On this basis o| calculation the eleven days the long* shoremen have been idle have cost them 1 . $198,000, or a total cost on the tw<* strikes of $211,186 thus far in the watted ot wages. RETURNING TO WORK. A great many strikers are straggling back to work, applying at places when# they are not Known. In raauy cases where they applied to be taken back in their places they were refused employs ment and in other cases thev were wel comed. The longshoremen Ciftian steamship docks retuf to-aay on the old terms, thq strikers admitted that there were too many men in the business for the unions to oombat tbe companies successlully. If seems to be a clearer case of defeat of th* freight handlers and longshoremen tbaq of the coal handlers, whose cause thd former two classes of labor espoused. There are mutterings of a threatened general strike on tho Reading railroad ini support of the coal handlers, * notwiths standing tbe published statements that an amicable agreement had been reached between representatives or the comß pany and the different classes of employed by It. If this strike occurs i( will be u serious one for the roacMaL though it is not likely to help the striker* on tbe other lines. A statement was published to-day that the strikes in the coal carrying trade bavai diminished by 860,000 tuns tbe amount ot coal that would otherwise have reached! points of ultimate delivery up to date. Michigan Iron Miners Strike. Champion, Mich , Feb. 9.—Four bun-, dred and flity iron miners and surfaco meu struck here yesterday.

Two! hundred surface men returned to wore to-day on tbe pretext that the pending trouble only concerns tbe undejsMound men. The company remains liij“ud ta waiting for developments.
