The excitement now going on among
the laboring classes ol this city indicates
something more than what one would at;
lirst suppose.. The 'strikes," as thev are
called, that are taking place daily, amount
to something more than a mere determin
ation to have higher prices for their labor.
Of these, the famous Tailors strike is the
most important. This seems to have
originated among the journeymen of one
clothing establishment -tire principal one
in the city, employing seven hundred
hands. This is a large number, and may
surprise persons unacquainted with the
large scale upon which some of the trades
arc carried on in New York. And these
seven hundred, of themselves, were capa
ble of producing a considerable crisis in
this branch of trade. It was an -unanimous
strike among these seven hundred
men. And what is being the result? It
is this: These seven hundred aie handed
together, and have their municipal regula
tions. They have been joined by many
