Evening now coming on, we set to work loading our carriers. The cattle were so small, that a stout native could walk off with an entire quarter ; brushing through thickets, and descending rocks without an apparent effort : though, to tell the truth, no white man present could have done the thing with any ease. As for the wild hogs, none of the islanders could be induced to carry Shorty's; some invincible supei-stition being connected with its black colour. We were, therefore, obliged to leave i
...t. The other, a spotted one, being slung by green thongs to a pole, was marched off with by two young natives.
With our bearers of burdens ahead, we then com- menced our return down the valley. Half-way home, darkness overtook us in the woods ; and torches became necessary. We stopped, and made them of dry palm branches ; and then, sending two lads on in advance, for the purpose of gathering fuel to feed the flambeaux, we continued our journey.
It was a wild sight. The torches, waved aloft, flashed through the forest ; and, where the ground admitted, the islanders went along on a brisk trot, notwithstand- ing they bent forward under their loads.
