After ten miles of alternate rowing, sailing and pulling through pelting rain and potent sun, wereached about mid-day the landing-place, a tree projecting from the right bank over the mud gravesof many defunct mangroves. Our boat, stripped of sail, oars, and rudder, to secure her presencenext morning, was made fast to a stump, and we proceeded to breast the hills. A footpath lead usover rolling ground sliced by the heavy rains, thickly grown with tall coarse grass, sun-scorched toa sickly bawny brown, and thinly sprinkled with thorny aeacias. After a mile we began the ascentof the Rabai Range. Rising behind the coralline of the coast, this ridge of yellow or rufoussandstone and red ochreish clay, varying in height from 700 to 1200 feet, fringes the line fromMelinde to the Pangany river. The hills rise abruptly seaward, and fall inland with a somewhatgentler slope, thus forming a mere ridge, not as such maritime ranges usually are, the rampart of aninterior plateau. This unusual disposition may have led to the opinion that inland the country fallsto or below sea-level. The chine is broken by deep ravines, which, after rains, pour torrents to theocean. Despite the blighting salt-breeze, aricas and cocos, mangoes and custard apples, the guavaand the castor plant, the feathery cassava and the broad-leaved papaw and plantain, flourish uponits flanks; and in the patches of black forests spared by the wild woodman, the copal and theinvule, a majestic timber-tree, still linger. The ascent of the hills was short but sharp, and the way,checkered with boulders, wound at imes under clumps of palms and grateful shade. On the summitappeared the straggling huts of the savages, pent-housed sheds of dried fronds, surrounded bysparse cultivation, lean cattle, and vegetation drooping for want of rain. Amid cries of "Yambo?"especially from that part of the sable community termed by prescriptive right the fair, and thescreams of children, we pursued our road over seaward ridge and dell: at the end of a five-milewalk we entered the mission-house, introduced ourselves to the inmates, and received the mosthospitable welcome.

At Zanzibar the line of streets is, as it should be, deep, narrow, and winding. In the west end apavement of chunam, provided with a gutter-the first I have seen in "Orient climes"-carries off theviolent rain, and secures coolness and purity. The east end shows attempts at similar civilisation;but green and miry puddles argue at preponderance of black population. Houses are on thefavourite Arab plan familiar to travellers in Spain and her colonies: some of the oldest buildings inGalway and western Ireland still display the type-a "patio," or hollow paved quadrangle, whereanimals may be penned for safety, with galleries, into which the rooms open, running round theseveral floors. But architecture is at its lowest ebb. There is not a straight line in the masonry; thearches are of every shape and form, and the floors will have a foot of depression between thecentre and the corners. The roofs, or rather terraces, supported by Zanzibar rafters, and walls ofmassy thickness, are copiously chunamed: here men sit to enjoy the sundown breezes. Bandanis,or penthouses of cadjans, garnish the house-tops in the native town: Europeans do not allow theseadjuncts, fires being frequent, and the slaves being addicted to aiding the work of destruction inhope of plunder. Some foreigners secure the delights of a cool night by erecting upper cabins ofplanking: the oldster, however, conforms to Arab precept, and always perspires during the hoursof sleep. The higher the house, the larger the doorway, the huger the studs which adorn themassive planks, and the heavier the padlock, the greater is the owner's dignity. An inscription cutin the wood of the lintel secures the entrance from witchcraft; and half a yard of ships' chain-cable,from thieves. Even the little square holes placed high up in the wall, and doing duty for windows,are closely barred. As glass cannot be used in sleeping-rooms, by reason of the heat, rough orpainted plank-shutters supply its place, and persiannes deform the best habitations. Arabs here, aselsewhere, love long narrow apartments, with many apertures towards the sea, securing the breezeessential to health: they as carefully close the eastern side-walls against the spicy feverish land-wind. The reception-hall is always on the ground-floor. It contrasts strongly with an Englishroom, where the uncomfortable confusion of furniture, and the crowding of ornaments ruin theproportions, and "put out" the eye. Here the long lines and the rows of niches, which, aselsewhere in the East, supply the want of tables, are unbroken save by the presence of a chandelierand a mirror, a Persian rug or carpet for the dais, a matting over the floor, and half-a-dozen Indianblack-wood chairs. Such is the upholstery of an Arab palace and an Italian villa. In the houses ofthe very wealthy, porcelain, glass-ware ornaments, and articles of European luxury, lie about theniches. The abodes of the poorer classes are provided with kitandahs, or cartels of cord, twistedround a rude wooden frame, trays for food, gourds, coarse stools, pots, and similar necessaries.

We glided south by east through a breach in the coralline reef that recalled the gateways of Jeddah. Presently, detached houses sprinkled the shore. A large unfinished pile, white-washed, but fastdecaying, was called by our pilot Akhir el Zaman-the End of Time. Under divers inauspiciousomens, it had been commenced by the late Prince in his latter days; and the death of sundry masonskilled by a falling wall, rendered it so hateful to the Arabs that it will probably remainuninhabitable. Then, at the distance of a mile, appeared the royal harem and demesne of Mtony, alarge rusty building with an extinguisher-roofed balcony, of dingy planking. It has a quaint kind ofGothic look, like a castle in a play, of the Schloss of a pensionless German baron: the luxurianttrees in rear have the faux air of an English park. A fetid lagoon here diffuses pestilence around it;and skippers anchoring off Mtony for convenience of watering with the purest element on theisland, have, in the course of a few days, had occasion to lament the loss of half their crews. Presently we floated past the "Shah Allum," an old fifty-gun frigate, of Bombay build: she showedno colours, as is usual when a ship enters: and the few men on board shouted information whichneither we nor the pilot understood. This worthy, as we drew near, decided from the absence ofFirday flags on the consular staffs, that some great man had gone to his long home. The"Elphinstone," however, would not have the trouble of casting loose her guns for nothing: with H.H., the Sazzid of Zanzibar's ensign-a plain ret-at the fore, and the union at the main, she castanchor in Front Bay, about half a mile from shore, and fired a salute of twenty-one. A gay buntingthereupon flew up to every truck and the brass cannon of the "Victoria" roared a response oftwenty-two. We had arrived on the fortieth, of the last day of mourning.

There are four Suk or bazars at Zanzibar; the fish-market lies behind the Suk Mahogo, a longstreet in the sough of the town, where paddy and grain, cloth and cotton, vegetables andprovisions, generally are for sale; and eastward is Suk Melinde, where the butchers expose theirvendibles. The best articles disappear before 7 A.M., after which time nought but refuse remains. The most characteristic spot in Zanzibar-the slave auctions are held in an empty walled court-isundoubtedly the salt bazar at the foot of the fort's eastern bastion. It derives its name from hugeheaps of saline sand, exposed for sale by the Mekranis and the Suri Arabs. Being near the custom-house, it is thronged with people, and gives, like the bazars of Cairo and Damascus, anexaggerated idea of the population. The staple material is a double line of negresses and blackyouth, with heaps of sun-dried manioc, mangoes, pine-apples, greasy fritters, the abominable jack-fruit, and redolent fish piled up between their extended legs. They vary the tedium of plaitingleaves and mat-weaving, with conversations arguing an admirable conformation of the articulatingorgans, and a somewhat lax morality. Pairs of muscular Hazramant porters, hobbling along withbales of goods and packs of hides suspended from a pole, pass chanting down the central road,kicking out of their way the humped cows, who placidly munch offal, fruits, and vegetables underthe shadow of their worshippers the Banyans. Stout Bhattias, traders from Cutch, distinguished byhigh features, pale skins, shaven beards, peaked turbans of spotted purple or crimson edged withgold, snowy cotton coats, and immaculate loin-cloths, chaffer with yellow Indian Kojahs; tricky-faced men with evil eyes and silky beards, forked after the fashion of ancient Rustam. Morepicturesque than these, gaunt light-brown Arabs from the Gulf, whose unkempt elf-locks flow lowover their saffron-stained shirts, armed with two-handed swords, daggers, and small round hide-targes, stalk like beasts of prey, eyeing the crowd with cut-throat stare and single gaze. Sometimes a white man-how hideous his garb appears!-threads the streets, arousing the mangycurs, and using the stick upon the naked shoulders that obstruct him. Here and there waddles anArab woman-a heap of unwashed clothes on invisible feet, with the Maskat masque exposing onlyher eye-balls. The black population, male and female, is more varied. Here is the tall Mhiaowoman, of stalwart frame and sooty skin, known by the hole which, pierced in her upper lip,allows a pearl to shine through the outer darkness, and her man, with cauterised skin worked andraised in intricate patterns over all his muscular trunk. The half-caste Sawahili girl wears a singlepiece of loose red or blue check bound tight under her arms, and extending to her ankles; her frizzycrop of hair is twisted into a multitude of lines, which have the appearance of being razor-tracedupon the scalp; one wing of her flat nose is pierced to admit a bone or metal stud, and the lobes ofher ears are distended with wooden pegs or twists of palm-leaf, which, by continued pressure,enlarge the aperture to a prodigious extent. The slave shaves her head into the semblance of amagnified coco-nut. She is accompanied by her hopeful, a small black imp ignorant of clothing; onhis head is a water-jar bigger than his own potbelly, and he screams Na-kújá-"I come"-to hisfriends, who are otherwise disporting themselves. There a group of Wanyassa, with teeth filed intoshark shape, are "chaffing" old Shylock, an Arab slave-dealer; whilst Wazegura, with patternedskins, scowl evilly at the Suri Nakhoda, the professed kidnapper of their race. The tattoodistinguishes this confusion of tribes; all, however, have the common national marks, gashes,pelagra, and smallpox. But see two Moslem Sawahili have met; let us listen to the lengthygreetings exchanged:--

That partie concluded with a bathe in the Pangany, which here has natural "bowers for dancingand disport," fit for Diana and her train. About a dwarf creek, trees cluster on three sides of asquare, regularly as if planted; and rope-like creepers bind together the supporting stems, and hanga curtain to the canopy of impervious sylvan shade. Our consumptive jemadar suffered severelyfrom the sun; he still, however, showed some ardour for sport. " mixture of a lie," says Baconbluntly, "doth ever add to pleasure." We could not but be amused by the small man'sgrandiloquent romancing. A hero and a Rustam, he had slain his dozens; men quaked to hear hisname; his sword never fell upon a body without cutting it in twain; and, 'faith, had he wielded it ashe did the tongue, the weapon would indeed have been deadly. He had told us at Pangany allmanner of Cathaian tales concerning the chase at Chogway; and his friend, an old Mzegurawoodman, had promised us elephants, wild buffaloes, and giraffes. When we pressed the point asa trial, the guide shirked: his son was absent, war raged in the clan, his family wanted provisions;he would ever come on the morrow. This convinced us that the tale of game in the dry season wasapocryphal. Chogway then offered few attractions. On Thursday, the 26th of February, we left"the Bazar." My companion walked to Pangany, making a route-survey, whilst I accompanied thejemadar and his tail in our large canoe.
