INDIAN ELEPHANTS FOR AFRICA. The following extract Is from the letter of an English lady resident In Zanzibar to a friend in England, received on the 21st inat., describing the landing on the mainland of Africa, from the British India Steam Navigation Company's steamer Chlnsura, the four Indian elephants the property of the King of the Belgians, The letter is dated Zanzibar, 2nd June I haft just finished a long letter all about the elephants, dear beasts. I can't tell you how interested we are in them, and how thankful we are they are safely landed. We never thought the first could get alive to shore. It swam more than a mile in distance, and waa in the water for more than an hour. Lrog after it waa half way it would keep turning round and trying to come back to the ship. I cannot describe to you tne excitement there waa on board. I fairly cried once with anxiety and excitement. It would have been too horrible to see it drowned. He tried to climb up the ship's side once. It was pouring with rain, which made things seem more dismal; we were all wet through, but nobody cared, We had to get our experience aa we went on, aa no one knew any- thing about elephants or landing. We managed the other three much better, and made the captain take the ship nearer in ahore; Captain Carter has stayed over there to take the elephants to Dar-es-Salaam, a distance of four miles, and will stay to see them com- fortably settled. I think the way this business has been managed reflects great credit on all concerned. It was all to be done in such a hurry, nobody knowing the beasts were coming, and the mail steamer having to rush-off again."
