The Carpenters’ Strike, The strike of the journeymen carpenters has not become general, though a large number of men are idle and seem confident that the bosses will have to quickly concede the eight hour sys tem to the whole trade. Many of the employ ees on the contrary say that the men have tak en an importune moment for the present agita tion as on account of the dullness of the sea son, they can afford to close their shops for an indefinite period. Scores of non-society men are at work and are promised protection 'in case of an attack. The movement of the society of carpenters is directed in a great measure against the ten large planing mills employing about 605 hands, and whose owners recently determined to resist any attempt to change the hours of labor, and to day announced their in tention to stick to their resolution. The leaders of the men vehemently assert that every man laboring ten hours must con form to the eight hour rule or leave the city. A number of boss carpenters and builders pres ent at the Mechanics’ aud Traders’ Exchange this afternoon stated that the trade was stag nant, with nearly 50 per cent, of the carpenters unemployed in consequence of the efforts to en force the eight hour law, those at work being paid forty cents per hour for ten hours work, which the non laborers regard as an infr nge mentof the eight hour law and are endeavor ing to induce others to strike. The latest re port is that the bosses will hold a meeting to morrow and that some of them are working to bring about an agreement to discharge such men as sent in a demand for the eight hour system.

Albany, May 26.—Tbe report to the Assem bly from Attorney General Barlow says there can be no doubt that the issuing of bonds by tbe Erie Railroad Company and their conver sion into stock was illegal, fraudulent aud void, but it is imposibic now to discriminate which 1—a.-J-. mi. . pany cannot rightfully pay dividends on such fraudulently issued stock as can be identified and traced iuto the hands of persons who took it with knowledge of the fraud; but the diffi culties of proof are so great that such suit would he practically useless. The Attorney General concludes that the only remedy for such violations of law, if’t cau be called remedy, is criminal punishment of tbe guilty officers of the railroad and summary proceeding of for feiture of charter; and it is no doubt compe tent for the T-egislature to limit by law rates of fare and freight, aud thus effectually set bonds to the amount of dividends which shall be paid. WASHINGTON. A New Planet, Washington, May 20.—Prof. C. F.
