Thrown out of employment.

--The New York Journal of Commerce thinks it would probably be no exaggeration to estimate the number of persons thrown out of employment since election day at 25,000. a large proportion of whom are young women. One clothing establishment in New York has discharged 1,000 workmen; a hat establishment has discharged nearly 1,000; a saddlery firm has reduced its force about 500; and curtailment is very general. At Newark, especially, the crisis is severely felt, on account of their extensive connections with the southern trade.
