ORIENTAL ΤΥΡΣ.

It gives us pleasure to inform our readers, that one of the greatest difficulties under which American scholars have heretofore labored in the cultivation of the Oriental Languages, especially the cognate dialects of the Hebrew, is now likely to be removed.

Hitherto the necessary elementary works could not be procured, unless by importing them at an enormous expense from Germany; for however we might possess scholars ca. · pable of preparing suitable Grammars, Lexicons and Chrestomathies to these tongues, there have been nowhere, except at Andover and New Haven, the requisite facilities for publishing them. In New-York, it was scarcely possible, within a very short period, to have even a few words or sentences set up in decent Hebrew type. But this reproaeh is now rolled away.

Through the enterprise of Mr. J. F. Trow, one of our most accomplished printers, New-York may boast of the richest fonts of Oriental Type, of the most exquisite model, to be found on this side of the Atlantic.

From the celebrated foundry of Tauchnitz in Leipsic he has imported an ample assortment in the various languages embraced in the accompanying specimen, viz., the Greek, Hebrew, Samaritan, Ethiopic, Syriac and Arabic, and is prepared to execute works requiring these varieties of letter to any extent. To many of the readers of the Repository we presume we could not well present a more interesting or attractive page.

Greek. Ταύτα ορθώς μεν εκείνος είπε προς τους μεθ' εαυτόν στρατηγους, οίς παροδον επί τάς ύστερον πράξεις έδωκεν εξελάσας τον βάρβαρον, και την Ελλάδα ελευθερώσας"
