AUSTRALIA'S JACK TARS. The King received at Buckingham Palace on Monday afternoon four petty officers and twenty-eight men from Australia and New Zealand who have been undergoing a course of training in gunnery and torpedo ratings in the naval depots of this country. The sailors will form the nucleus of the proposed force to be raised by Australasia to assist in the naval defence of the Empire. After lunching at the Admiralty the Aus- tralasians were marched to the lawn in front of the Palace, and were there drawn up in single line. In dress and appearance they are the exact counterpart of the English sailor. His Majesty, briefly addressed the men, congratulating them on their smart appear- ance, and expressing, the hope that they had enjoyed their period of training in this coun- try. He felt the experience they had gained in our great naval depots would prove to be seed for very fruitful development of naval training in the Colonies.
