p.2 Row At Portsmouth - Shortly before one o'clock today a Frenchman is said to have struck an Englishman at Portsmouth in the shipyard there; and this afterwards led to such a general row between the French Canadians and the English-speaking portions of the hands employed in the yards, that a messenger was despatched to the city, soliciting the assistance of the police. The fight was still going on a couple of hours afterwards, but the result has not transpired. Up to this time, however, nothing but fair fighting had taken place, the fists of the combatants only being used.
