STRONC AMERICAN PROTEST ADDRESSED TO CREAT BRITAIN. FULL REPLY REQUESTED. WASHINGTON, December-23. The United Slates Government have addressed a stron _' remonstrance to Great Britain agaitiot the treatment of American commerce I >V the British fleet.

The X ite- despatched t<> Sir K. Grey asserts that much bo.-tile lia« been e;eueiatvd in 'he United Statvs owine; to ;miivities shown by the British, licet in veeard to AniPi'ic.'iii eaijoes. AVhi'o thes" i-e]irei-entat ions are made in a lii.'iidlv spiiit. it is pointed out that, public opinion holds Great Britain i"e.spon-r-ible for 'he present, depuxs.-ion in American industries. I'eiiiibur.-omeiit for sei/ed liirenes i- declai-ej to lm no rrniedy for the -.-rievances. 'l")io chief dilliaidty is the moral effect upon American exporters, who are lestraiimd from takim,' risks which they otlmiwisn would in ttailin-; with neutral comiti-ms. A full Miiteiimid nf the British attitude is asked for. in ..r<!< r to take st, p.-: to pioteet American citizens en-meed in le L Mlim.lle li,i hj. The N,ae is vigorously worded, and is d'clared to be the strongest .'irldre-sed to any iellimien'. since fin. outbreak of the w :i ;-.

The Xofe also ,p,,,ies T.0v.l Sallsburv. fa-intiiiL,' .mt timt in the coiiife of colicspoiidenee v.-itii Wii.-hiim;Loti duiitii: tlm r.,,.|- Wat- that state-man laid down the dictum that foodstuffs were liable t<> sevmro as iciiti-iibuid only if they vci-a. <-opsiL'iic<l to an «nemv's fotces. H, was nor sufficient that the foodstuffs were Cu,pab'e of lieiui; use | t <( feed enemy forces, but it, rutitst be shown that- such, was their destination at the iiinc of seizure. 'lho importance of this contention consists in the fa't 'bar. if it i.s upheld, tlm United States will b- able to supply Ormany am! Ait.-tri-i with fond, and thus prnlomj- the war iudplinitelv. and neutralise the etouU of the British licet. THE AI'STRALASIAXS GETTING THImiSJ'fTI-S FIT. A PRESSMAN'S rCAIa'E. TON DON".

This means a. draft- at intervals of every two months of about 1,800 officers and men throughout the continuance of the war. It should be particularly noted that New Zealand must keep up a steady flow of men on this scale, no matter how long the war goes on wheth:'r it for months or years. After tin? departure of the third reinforcements all drafts will receive four nioiith.s' training he-fore despatch from New Zealand. J l>o remainder of the men's training liel'o'"- being sent to the front will be completed under arrangements made !>y the War Oflu<\ There are now laiflicicut men in the Trentham camp for mounted lilies of the third and fourth reinloivemeuts. There are also sufficient men for the infantry of the third reinforcements, but some uUO more infantry .recruits arc reijuired to complete, the number of the f-urth reinforcements. Five hundred men will be brought back from Samoa to lie equipped and to undergo training. t ;o that they may accompany the fourth reinloivemeiit.-. 'I be remainder of tlie.
