French Communists in Auckland.— The schooner Griffin, arrived on Tuesday at Manukau from jSTe\v Caledonia, with 25 French Communists on board, whose terms had expired. Their feres to Auckland were paid by the French Government. Thirty-one days at sea the provisions gave out, and they were supplied by the Lochnagar, from Auckland to Hobart Town, but these also failed, and the last drop of water was used up when they approached land and a case of wine was broached. Eleven of them are political deportds; the balance are offenders against the criminal code. Accompanying the party are one woman, one child, and three girls ; the wife and infant of one political deportd, and the daughters of another. The men are of various trades, compositor, lithographer, printer, butcher, baker, painter, writer and grainer, music master, and laborers. They are anxious to get to work at once. The political batch seem a quiet, intelligent, and respectable lot of men. For continuation of reading matter see fourth
