Buffalo, N. Y., Negroes/ Irish stevedores

Buffalo, N.Y.,  July 6    There was a difficulty between the Irish stevedores and negroes this afternoon, in consequence of the former trying to prevent the negroes from unloading the propellers.  A negro shot an Irishman, it is said in self-defence, which was a signal for a general onslaught on all the negroes, several of whom are reported killed and a number severely wounded.  To-night all is quiet, but the longshoremen and stevedores are determined to prevent the negroes from working on the docks.
