We Presented Quite An Imposing Sight While Thus Marching On In Silence And Order, With Our Flags Flying, And The Red Blanket Robes Of The Men Streaming Behind Them As The Furious North-Easter Blew Right On Our Flank.

The men seemed to feel they were worth seeing, for I noticed that several assumed a more martial tread as they felt their royal Joho cloth tugging at their necks, as it was swept streaming behind by the wind.

Maganga, a tall Mnyamwezi, stalked along like a very Goliah about to give battle alone, to Mirambo and his thousand warriors. Frisky Khamisi paced on under his load, imitating a lion and there was the rude jester - the incorrigible Ulimengo - with a stealthy pace like a cat. But their silence could not last long. Their, vanity was so much gratified, the red cloaks danced so incessantly before their eyes, that it would have been a wonder if they could have maintained such serious gravity or discontent one half hour longer.

Ulimengo was the first who broke it. He had constituted himself the kirangozi or guide, and was the standard-bearer, bearing the American flag, which the men thought would certainly strike terror into the hearts of the enemy. Growing confident first, then valorous, then exultant, he suddenly faced the army he was leading, and shouted

"Hoy! Hoy ! Chorus. - Hoy! Hoy!

Hoy! Hoy! Chorus. - Hoy! Hoy!

Hoy! Hoy! Chorus. - Hoy! Hoy!

Where are ye going? Chorus. - Going to war.

Against whom? Chorus. - Against Mirambo.
