GENERAL SIR IAN HAMILTON.

Melbourne, Jan 1G

An embarrasing delay occurred in arranging the troops for tbe salute, and the massed bands were so far off that they were hardly beared The general expressed him self as pleased with tha look of the men and the way they marched past, but said that a ceremonial parade gava a reviewing oilice 1 acbanco of seeing how officers handled their men. They must not be taken by surprise A general must be looked upon ac the enemy, because he tried to pick holes in everything and they should be ready for him.
