Strike Among the grave-diggers.

--The Irish grave diggers at Hollywood Cemetery are on a strike for higher wages. The Superintendent refused to accede to their demands, and then employed a lot of negroes to do the work; but before they had fairly gotten under way the strikers pitched into them with shillelahs and drove them off. It is stated that a force of negroes from the penitentiary was finally permitted yesterday to set in undisturbed. The amount paid the Irish grave-diggers was seven dollars per day.
