GENERAL SIR IAN HAMILTON.

Melbourne, Jan 1G

The review of the Metropolitan troop 3is not likely to have created a favourable impression with General Sir lan Hamilton, The general was kept waiting for five mm, utes before the officar was aware that he had arrived. 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.
