A Strike - The ship carpenters and caulkers of this town, and also of Port Dalhousie and Port Robinson, struck this morning for an advance in wages. They demand $1.75 per diem, instead of $1.50, which has been the wages for some time back. They also require weekly payments of their earnings. A society has been organized, and the men seem determined not to work until their demands are acceded to.
