Latin and Greek as- in Rome and Athens. By the Rev. Francis M. Wyndham. (Sanford.)—Mr. Wyndham has written a very interest- ing little treatise on the proper pronunciation of Latin and Greek. His remarks are peculiarly valuable, it seems to us, in reference to Greek. Here the question is somewhat complicated by the accents, and whether in despair caused by this difficulty, or because the question has not the practical importance attaching to that of the pronunciation of Latin, Greek has been pretty well left alone. What Mr. Wyndham has got to say is well worth reading.
