We understand that Dr. Charles Waldstein, curator of the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge, has been offered the post of first permanent director of the American School at Athens, to take office as soon as the endowment shall have been sufficiently subscribed to secure his salary. Towards this en-endowment the University of the City of New York has promised $1,000, and the Pennsylvania University has given the proceeds of its recent performance in New York of "The Acharnians" of Aristophanes in the original Greek. The building of the American School at Athens is now rising by the side of the English School; and it is hoped that, to some extent, the library may be shared between the two. - Academy.
