[by telegraph. ] Auckland, To-day. The P. M. s.s. City of Sydney, with the San Francisco mail, arrived this morning. Summary of News. San Francisco, Feb. 15. A story is current in London that the Government have interferred with the Land League correspondence, having opened many of its letters. It is understood Mr Parnell will sail direct from Paris for the United States, as a document found on Davitt just before he was arrested in Dublin, criminates him and many important persons in the present agitation. There is a strong talk about Mr Parnell’s continued absence in Paris. His party in Parliament is now virtually disorganised. Kelly and Barry have not been in the House for a week, and their whereabouts are unknown. There is a disposition amongst the leading Leaguers to leave for America, but the Irish press implore them not to deser t their cause. A great anti-coercion meeting has been held in Hyde Park, and afterwards a procession halted in front of the Guards and Carlton Reform Clubs, and groaning at the members. Precautions wore taken by the Government, but no display of force was made. General Colley’s first defeat by the Boers was a crushing one. The Boers might have annihilated him had they pushed their advantage. General Colley left all his wounded at their mercy. Lieutenant Percy Rapel, R.E., has been found murdered in Brompton Barracks on February 4th. He was, it is believed, killed by Fenians. .
