Scarcity of laborers at the North.

--In some portions of the State workmen are scarce, in consequence of the drain for the war. The laborers upon the wharves of this city have a society which numbers over 500 members, who are pledged not to work for less than 25 cents per hour. Shoemakers are in demand in all the manufacturing towns, and we hear of places where masons and other mechanics cannot be obtained at any price.--The same state of affairs exists in other States, and especially in large cities.--Boston Traveller.
