1. In a small bowl, cover the dried mushrooms with very hot water. Let stand until softened, about 30 minutes. Drain, remove and discard the stems, and cut the mushrooms into 1/4-inch wide strips. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil, sugar, and salt. Set aside. Heat a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add the oil and tilt to coat the inside of the pan. Add the scallions and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the cabbage, carrot, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts and stir-fry until the cabbage wilts, about 3 minutes. Stir the soy sauce mixture into the vegetables and mix well. Transfer to a shallow dish and let cool completely. Sprinkle with the cornstarch and toss until the vegetables absorb the cornstarch.
3. Preheat the oven to 200°F. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place an egg roll wrapper on a work surface, with the points at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. Place one sixth of the filling on the bottom third of the wrapper, forming it into a log that comes no closer than 1/2 inch to the edges of the wrapper. Fold up the bottom point, and roll up the wrapper, folding in the side points as you roll it into a thick cylinder. Place a dab of water on the last point to adhere it to the roll. Place the roll, seam-side down, on the waxed paper. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.
4. Place a large wire cake rack over a jelly roll pan. In a deep Dutch oven, melt vegetable shortening over high heat to a depth of 2 to 3 inches and heat it to 365°F. In batches, without crowding, deep-fry the egg rolls until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using a wire-mesh skimmer, transfer to the wire rack and keep warm in the oven while deep-frying the remaining egg rolls. Serve immediately, with small bowls of the hoisin sauce, mustard, and duck sauce, for dipping.
