Mr. Hamilton began by shoving that one of the most ancient sounds was pro dnced by the application of wind to string, viz, m the fonn of Ae ^Eolian harp, which was known to die ancient Greeks. The note of the .lEolian harp is, at times, surpassingly beautiful ; bat it is fitful and uncertain, and incapable of being controlled. The reason of this is, that the harp consisting of one or more strings placed in a wide ftame, through which a draught played, the] torrent of air blew fitfully, and notj withasteadypr£ssure,and wfth little effect from not being concentrated on the string.
