Art. I.–An Account of the Abipones, un Equestrian People

of Paraguay. Translated from the Latin of Martin Dobrizhoffer, Lighteen Years a Missionary in thať Country. Lon

don. 3 vols. 8vo. 1821. THE author of this work was an Austrian Jesuit, who was born , I in the year 1717, entered the company in 1736 while he was studying theology at Gratz in Styria, and in 1749 sailed from Lisbon for Buenos-Ayres, to enter upon the arduous duties of a missionary in Paraguay. There he remained till Spain, in evil hour, expelled the Jesuits from its dominions. In that most impolitic and inhuman deportation Dobrizhoffer was included; but he had not, like his Spanish fellow-sufferers, to pass the remainder of his life in unmerited and hopeless exile from his native land. Returning to his own country, he resided at Vienna, in the Jesuit college, till the extinction of his order, and afterwards as a secular priest. The Empress Maria Theresa is said to have taken great pleasure in conversing with him, and hearing him describe the manners of the savages among whom the latter part of his years had been past. In 1777 he communicated some remarks upon the Guarani and Abiponian languages to a journal printed at Nuremberg; and in 1784 he published, under the title of a *History of the Abipones, a full account of the remarkable people among whom he had been stationed, and of his own adventures in a wild country, among wild men. He wrote in Latin, as a man who expected that his work would find fit readers, though few, in all countries, and in all succeeding times; perhaps also because, after long use of Spanish and barbarous tongues he could not have written his own language with the same facility and correctness. The work was translated into German the same year, and there is also a Spanish translation, which was offered for sale in London, among a collection of Spanish manuscripts, about three or four years ago. He died at Vienna in 1791, in a good old age. ... Dobrizhoffer was a member of the company in its best age, and was stationed in that country where its efforts were most success

* The original title is Historia de Abiponibus, Equestri, Bellicosaque Paroquariæ Natione locupletata copiosis Barbararum Gentium, Urbium, Fluminum, Ferarum, Amphibiorum, Insectorum, Serpentium præcipuorum, Piscium, Avium, Arborum, Planturum, aliurumque ejusdem Provinciæ, observationibus. Authore Martino Dobrighoffer, Presbytero, et per annos duo de viginti Paraquariæ Missionario, T. iii. 8vo. Vienna. 1784. VOL. XXVI. NO. LII.
