A

TALE OF PARAGUAY.

CANTO IV.

I.

 The bells rang blithely from St. Mary's tower
 When in St. Joachin's the news was told
 That Dobrizhoffer from his quest that hour
 Drew nigh: the glad Guaranies young and old
 Throng thro' the gate, rejoicing to behold
 His face again; and all with heartfelt glee
 Welcome the Pastor to his peaceful fold,
 Where so beloved amid his flock was he
That this return was like a dav of jubilee.
