Willard, Emma 1787-1870 Educator; born in Berlin, Conn., Feb. 23, 1787; descended from Thomas Hooker, founder of Hartford, Conn.; began teaching at sixteen years of age, and was principal, sucessively, of different academies. In 1809, at Middlebury, Vt., she married Dr. John Willard. In 1821 she established her famous female seminary, at Troy, N. Y., which she conducted until 1839. She made a tour in Europe in 1830, and published her Journal and letters on her return, in 1833, and devoted her share of the profits of the work to the maintenance of a school for women in Greece, which was founded mainly by her exertions. Mrs. Willard wrote and published essays on Female education; also several books, chiefly on history. She also published two books on physiology, and a volume of poems. Her ocean-hymn, Rocked in the cradle of the deep, has always been very popular. She died in Troy, N. Y., April 15, 1870.
thered them; and no one who is acquainted with the art of casting iron-ware of that description will wonder at the difficulties that attended the first attempt, or withhold the meed of praise due to the success of the man and his boy. An Abraham Darby erected the first iron bridge in 1777; it spanned the Severn near Coalbrookdale with a single arch. It is believed that at these works coke and coal were first successfully used in smelting iron. Very small iron castings are made at Berlin, Germany, known as the Berlin iron ornaments and chains. One exhibited in London was 4 feet 10 inches long, had 180 links, and weighed 1 2/3 ounces. Professor Ehrenberg, the renowned microscopist, states that the iron of which they are composed is made from a bog iron-ore, and that the sand is a kind of tripoli, also containing iron. Both are composed of the remains of animalcules. The origin of these interesting works of art was during the struggle between Prussia and France under Napol

he admirable book on Chancellorsville, which we had occasion to notice so favorably. In order that our readers may see clearly who it is that gives this able, clear, and very fair account of this great battle, we insert the following brief sketch of Colonel Dodge given by the Boston Herald. Colonel Theodore A. Dodge is one of the best known men in Boston military circles. He is now in his 43d year, having been born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in 1842. When quite young he went to Berlin, Prussia, where he received his military education under General von Froneich, of the Prussian army. When the civil war cloud burst in the United States he promptly returned home, enlisted and went to the front. He served constantly in the Army of the Potomac (in every volunteer regimental rank up to that of colonel) from the Peninsula, where he was with Kearney, through Pope's and Burnside's campaigns, and at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, in which latter engagement he was with Howard.
