Letter from Harriet E. Bonner. (From Urn New Harm Palladium.] Our readers arc undoubtedly aware that a monument to the lamented Lincoln, to com* . memorate the great act of bU admin istration, the Emancipation Proclama tion, to be located at Washington, I has been for come time lo contcm- Elation. The idea originated, and has been J Ithcrto been generally sustained by the i freedmen, and too Aral contribution to the i monument (of fire dollars) was nude hr a poor negro woman in Marietta, Ohio. The gentlemen who bare had the matter in chsreCthaTe secured a design from Miss Har riet E.Hoamcr, the distinguished American sculptor, now residing in Italy, and the letter Irom the artist, which we give below, and which Is now published Cor the first time, gives a succinct and interesting sketch of the general idea of the monument, which she has ingeniously and carelully worked out. We may only add that the monument Is to be made of New England granite and bronze, and that the estimated cost will be $250,000. The following is Miss Hosmer’s letter: James E. Yeatman, President of the Freed man’s Monument Association; bm: In designing a monument to record the Hie and services of Abraham Lincoln. 1 have en- , deavored to express the Idea that the Temple of Fame which wo erect to hts memory, is bated upon the two great acts of bis administration, viz.: the emancipation of the a slave, and the rrctcrrstioi* ot the American Union. Commencing, however, with Ida early bislorr, 1 have represented the services of the President's hfe, in the four bas-rclle r s which surround the lower base, in the first—hlabirth; hla journey ihroucb the woods to Lis new home in Indiana; ami his occupation as builder of log cabins rail splitter. Cat-boatman and faimer, in the second, —es simnp-tpeaher. as member or Lcctsla tnre; as bidding farewell to hla constitu ents and friends at Springfield; and ns Uhlnp tbe o>th of Presldeix of the United States at Washington. In the the third—four memorable events of the war—the bombardment ofSnmter, the capture of Mobile and of Peters- Luig. and tbe surrender of Lee at Appomatox. Id the fonttb—the av«aasl«atlon, tbe funeral proces sion, and the final Interment at Springfield. Upon tbe circular columns which enclose these bae-reUefc, and crowning the first base of the temple, ve placed four statues, representing Ihe condition uftbe negro as it actnallr existed at ciil'crent periods of the President’s four years o!; first, as exposed In chains for sale; second, upon tbe plantation; Ihtid, as guide and assist ant to onr troops; and fourth, as a soldier, and a freedtnao. Above these columns rises an octagonal base, four tides of which contain tbe Inscriptions—Abraham Lin coln ; martyr President of tbe United Slates ; emancipator of lour millions of men; preserver of tbe American Union. Upon this rests a circu lar base, forming the immediate base of the tem ple, upon which is represented a bas-relief com posed of thlrty-frlx female figures band in hand, symbolical of the union of tbe tblrty-slx States. Upon this rise the fburcolumns •rf the temple, supporting a cornice, upon which arc inscribed the conclialng words of the Eman cipation Proclamation; “And upon this, sin cerely believed to be an act of justice, 1 invoke the considerate Jndgmsrt of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.* 1 . Within the temple, a statue ofihe dead President • esls upon a sarcophagus, and ib.d four mourning victories, with trumpets reversed, which guard and surround tbe whole, record the great sorrow I oi tb>> nation, stricken down at the moment of | proclaiming Its triumphs. II is Idleness to say that In so small a space but little study could bo given to details. Should opportunity be afforded me of completing tbe de-lgrj upon a larger scale, many improve ments and accessions would be Introduced; for Instance, the historical baa-rellefa would contain careful portraits of Individuals and places; in the circular bas-rellefe the character istics of each separate Siata would be preserved, and the shields, affixed as architectural orna ments, would have their appropriate coats-of aruis. The object thus far hi my design, baa »ecn merely to convey to you an idea of its general and of the manner In which I should propose to Illustrate toe history of the groat man. whose life was so rich in events that It only remain* for the «ni*t to give prominence to Its moat brilliant passage*. with what Degree of skill this has been done, I now leave you and others to determine, and 1 have thePonor to be. very iesi^tful trypans Lrenous, September 15,186 G. nrittiu abboib.

CHICAGO, SUNDAY. DECEMBER 16, 1866. THETRUSSEU MANSLAUGHTER. Trial of Mary CoosrllT- The Case Con eluded—Tie Eridenee—Argo meats of Counsel—The Instructions. The Verdict—“ One Tear In the Peni- tentiary. SCENES IN CODBXi The crowd In atlerda»ce on Saturday morning Bpoa tbe court where the fete of Mary CoagtW, oitas MoUta was shortly about to be set tled, was toaeste. At as early period, folly an boor before the time for the camtm: mof tie court, there was as assemblage of persona so great aa warranted the detailing of a police offi cer In aid of the bajltSa to keep the pc me. A large number of beetle-browed aud tomo scarred ftced men were present, and under the shadow of broad brimmed hats were to be seen a few of those countenances which condemn men in the Imagination of peaceable drisen*, the more ao If there is a meeting between the arisen and the possessor of the countenance In a seclnded spot. Promptly astne clock struck ten, the already well filled court room lonnd the presence of the partus to the legal conflict, except the central figure— the prisoner.

Boring the morning session no fe male*, ssto one, was prevent, She a tall and rather sallow-faced lady, with on execrably fitting bar, trtmmed with green ribbon, pushed tier way through 'be crowd, w ith many anxious inquiries as to which was the prisoner. She would un doubtedly hare ascended the bench in search of the dciVncant—and Lad her feet upon ll* steps— bad not a bailiu kindly informed her that th? In teresting individual bad not yet been brought In. 1 be mark of disappointment on her countenance at the reception of this Information waa only equalled by the greater disappointment which * as depicted at a subsequent period, when, asking one of the prisoner's counsel to stand aside to allow her to take ft full view ol the culprit, be loid her she ought to be ashamed of bcreelf. 1 he prisoner was brought into court at fire min ulea past ten. The.* was apparent a greater de gree of aav.cty depicted upon her countenance than prevailed on the preceding day; but there was a mixed aspect, for there scemel to be some confidence, it Is probable that she bad nuoyco herself up with hope, in the opportunity to appeii to the sympathies of the jury by the re capitulation of wrongs, and when she aaw the fabric overturned by the ruling of law from the month ot the venerable Judge, she appreciated that the, like, aa he expreasedlit, a wife, acquaint ance of or stringer to. the deceased, must be judged by the .aw, to the extent which the mild form of the indicunent allowed. ti Lc-c she came to there were murmurs of 'pec ulation. Some In the crowd were already calcn lalirg the chances, and those who find a fascina tion Tn listening to the details of crime, or in the perusal of the last sensation, or the viewing of a tore, were os anxiously consorting together la convene as to the results, aa though the* them reives bad bees on trial and she were the looker on. The qualifications of <he several lawyers were ditcne'cd, aud the old halniutt of the courr, who l.aM-hea. cad the lawyers speak, were dilating l&rgeiv upon the power of this and that attorney In the case. The general result, so far as could belcaTm*lattheieporte«’table, was that every one thought the prisoner would be acquitted, or, ifcorvlcted, would not see the inride of the Pen itentiary. coxttjipt or com. All discussion was, however, hashed, when Mr. ti'iuon. of counsel for the prisoner, rose and stated that Mr. Robert Forsyth, whom bo deemed to be an Important wltnesi an Uls side, had con temned the sabptena of the court, and absented himself by goltg to Oswego, New York, alter ser vice of the process. For tho present, no remedy seemed to present Itself to meet each a contempt, and the matter there rested. WILLIAM DOCOLAM was then called on tbu part of the de r cnce.

Ibe court then adjourned anal two o'clock. AFTERNOON SESSION. The court room was Jammed with such as de- sired to hear the arguments ot counsel. A new Ingredient entered into the composition of the audience, as there were present uot a few of the senior mtmhcrs of the bar. There was al*o the two females of the previous day's presence, aud ■till the woman with the sreen ribbons. These constituted all of their sex who were in tho court room, and to them were given front teats. ■ VTbvti the prisoner bad been produced and the lur* called,' Mr. Roberts. Wilson addressed the Jury. He, as Is usual, spoke of tho Jurors and the reasena why these bad bees selected of all who were presented. They had been taken on their honor, aud they were only asked to act In view of their oatna. Be intended to argue this case from a stand point higher than that occupied by the prosecu ting attorney, who bad referred the Jurors to the mulls which must loilow to them u they acquit ted the prisoner, when they resumed their places in the community, lie would direct them to that final tribunal where their oaths are registered. This ia the case of a' deft-ircelesa woman against whom the power of tbs government is arrayed. In eucb a case the stronger power Is booed in honor to produce all the testimony for the consideration of the Jury, and yet, here, witnesses endowed upon (he Indictnsem.wbo were ere* witnesses of the trans action, bad been omitted to be called, and no ex plunfcUvvi of 'he omti-'lon Is given.

Could It then be possible that Wright did not see this t Wfct-u the prosecution was commenced it was upon the theory that the flr«t bullet waa the fatal one. Now the people’s attorney has sought to change his lactlca, and be claims the second shot as tho Mai one. Why 1* this! It Isa victual admLaion 'bat Ibe first shot was Instilled. This was met by another point, for U the jury bad a reasonable doubt as to which shot caused the death, then an acquittal was bound to follow. Qc should also contend that Ifthe first ebot was jus tified, then all further firing waa m like moaner Justified. Be contended that the scene following the death, the evidence of immediate contrition, and the crying aloud, and the dis parted mood, proved that. In killing, she was impressed with the necessity of her act, and me tonow she felt at tho itccosuty. Be dented that Trassell was fleeing when he was first shot, and explained away the absence of marks of blows u-on the prisoner’s bee by the statementthatthc'cvidcncc showed that he gave not the full force of his arm, because he waa to some extent restrained. sm. c. a. rostra speech. UK. V. Mi. c. It Jones followed on tbe same side. He renewed the question down to the consideration as to whether tne assault was of such a nature aa to raise a reasonable apprehension of great boduy injury. Be argued aa new points in tbe case, that there were silent witnesses of the fact that a vio lent assault was made. These were the rending of the prisoner’s garments, the breaking off of ber breastpin and the loss, of her bracelet: and the prostration of herself after the commission of the deed upon the lifeless and bleeding body of that the first shotmnat have been tbe one which caused the death, and this being juati fled he defied conviction on the others, for on an assault no division could be made. No one could be competent to say when the necessity of slaving ceased to <‘xlst, and to her rearing imog isatSon it must have seemed that death alone could save her from abuse. By the first shot she waded Into tbe adventure too deeply to draw back, aud to escape from certain vengeance, it wou : d naturally seem that an advantage gained must be followed up until she should lay her as sailant at her feet. x. a, abxt'h assbzsb. Mr. £. G. Aear concluded the case for the de fence. The point ditcnased by him was the eject of the existence of a doubt which should acquit the prisoner. He confined Wmaeif exclneivcljrto this, exception when bespoke of the prisoner, in whose behalf he made a vigorous appeal He examined the evi dence, to ahov that most s doubt. He claimed the'benefit of an rlbnhw, and called epoa the Jurors to remember the leni ency of the law, introduced as an offset to the technical rules which baa of necessity to prevent fraud being adopted fortssfiuaUuUuU otuth fiCllft ol justice. rm clofcto Aconocrr. Mr. Sidney Smith dosed Use cue. The routine of bU remarks were given over to personal mat* ten, arising from the coono of Ute trUf, end It <ms sometimes interrupted, until by actual inter vention of the Cooit, it vu pat s*; aid to. For Ute purpose of attttmiw to SCrectt their eHfwt, the counsel for * _ h ‘ l rl /nMMf w« me. ■?«-* —e pnsooer, when be opened bis ces when he finally argued it, ..... ooorpeTmeeell was the seducer ol his I cuent. Be made a series of charges against him I who Is cold In lus tomb and cannot reply to tbe I Infamous attacks on him. Uis excuse was, if it haj not been for the technicalities of tbe law be would bavc proved these statement*. Did they ofiier to prove that he was herscducer? No: and they bad no evidence to prove the proposition, antf it had so truth tn It, and they knew it was I false when it wu made. This woman has turned out to be a wo man of the to*>n, bat that the de ceased brought her to that condition he denied. Better for her tad she sot fallen, and better had It been if be bad never seen her. In 1957 she came here as a woman of tbe town, and a year or two Tears after, Trusaell made her acquain tance, which resulted In AO Illicit intimacy which has bad an unfortunate ending. On the -<th of September, IrusaellJeavlng come from New York with tla beiae, .nbejtecame lesions of him. and all K ow uM& women of this description bo be come, tuey alon. Under the influence of ibis pa-sioo she caused a note to be written to blm: “You have cot kept your path. and 1 cannot keep mine. 1 want to see you before t break U. and moat." What else does she? She pats the letter in her pocket to accomplish her purpose. The same girl that wrote the note gave her_tbe pistol. Thus armed she resolved to take hinnrom his business at all events, she had sent for “Shanghai Lharlvy, 11 the backman. and him abe directs to dr ire down Randolph street and If ha sees Trussed to let her know. Hi r will is iccomplithcd and de ceased Is seen. The note Is scat in, and TrnsaeU Is engaged in business. He reads (he cote, and says cothins. This the hackman reports to bet—and he tells her that Truss* 11 Is busy a< d should not be interrupted ; even febsi-cbai Charley.piollie's backman, bad as much Sropnety ob to know it was not an occasion when c should be Interrupted. At that »lme the driver ol Dexter came along, and she told him to go tn and per Urn out. The driver did so, and Trnssell came out, told her be was buy and could not be interrupted, and then rctmed to resume hU btul rtfj. Is test improper? Next ebc became furious and remarked, “IwOI go in and bring blm oak” She rustirs Into the eiioon, eelsca him by the collar, and says, “George, 1 want iou.“ DnooobtMly this era ted blm. and be rushed her toward the door. Who then is the as* Mulling party? What could be do? lie pushes her toward tbe door. She cot loose from hun. or be from her, and he returned to the saloon. Did tbe go home? No. Even although Seneca Wrig&t, at her request, had promised that he should go to her house, she re toms again, and teaioN put out, he returning. As he got inside the door she started to pursue him, draws a pis tol. unta it to his aide sod snaps it; be retreats, and seam she »toots, and the bullet goes to Urn heart. Then he exclaims, “My God, lam shot,” at the fame ume retreating, when she still pur sue* him, filing at his back, and he falls to the ground. Under such a state of facts he asked tbe jury not to allow toeuuetvcs to be swerved by passion nr prejudice. This prisoner must not oe acnolUed because she la a woman, and on this point be would, as he must, leave the responsibility with thejury. Suppocmg she had been struck in the saloon, that affray bad terminated and the victim of her fair bad retired from her: bo had shown a dispo sition to avoid a conflict. In such a state of case the only doubt was whether ibis woman should not have been in dicted for the higher crime. Conceding, however, every fret testified to In behalf of the prisoner, be held that a clear ease of manslaughter had been made out. But Trussell had not struck her. Every witness, save only one, so testified, and should the imagination of a young m---n be taken to contradict the evidence ot so many persons u bo were in actual view of the whole transaction? It is cnnectsaary to call attention to the fact that three wUncsse* ior the people and two for the defence swear she was sot struck. At tbe last moment a young man comes on the stand, and he is mistaken, as mistaken as the counsel, who says he, that Is but twenty-five years ol age..ived in the city thirty year*. This young man say? blow alter blow was delivered by this desperate man rl"ht to this wpman't face, and the old sot hear the euote. Can it be true that this wo man's face cannot be disfigured by these blows • It is not true, and her fsce was not bruised. The young man saw the alltoy, and be saw the upraised hand, and m his 1 (pagination be sees ths blow. But Mr. Wilson complains that more witnesses were not called. Why. be asks, was not Pat ridge called: Mr. Assy got the case couttnued thst he might preouce this man- when this case esme on the prosecuting attorney asked Mr. Pat ridge to meet him to the library, and that gentleman did not respond, alibourb be was in consultation with defendant's counsel all the Ume. Why, knowing what be could a wear to by means of this coninhation, did not the defence call Imp to the stand? It had been said by Judge Wilson he would Ukr to refer this ease to a town meeting. Sneaker did not geny thi*. for the court, wuere facts must be heard, 1? the place they would have avoided. They don’t want to talK about the facta olthc ca-e, because these facta are conclusive to prove the prisoner guilty ol manslaughter, and iheonly doubt that can exist is whether the evi dence might not warrant a connexion of tbe as to which shot had the fetal efieetbe considered Immaterial tor discussion. The first shot being anjasilfleo, It makes no dif ference uhlcb one killed him. tn* nrurnnenoss.

Sort doubt must not be m*rcly a possibiU Urof inrocrPoe, but s substantia] doab' «f gui L. The jury are luaanctcd that Um defendant is on trial upon a charge of nunslanjpKyr, for causing the death of George Troase-', by shooting him in the left breast with a pistol- shot, and not npon any other cbarce.’aDd tost If they believe front the evidence that that (hot was fired under circum stances that Justify h*r, asset forth in other in structions. they should acquit.

The court room wo* thro c'eared, and the Jury were taken to the room devofel to their delibera tions. This was at five minutes past six. The prisoner waa shortly after remanded to the county jail, being escorted on her way hr the rag-tag and nob-tall oi tne crowd who bad listened to the speeches of the afternoon. At twenty minutes past nine o'clock, the Court rearsemblea m response to the summons of the Jury. There were then present a couple of score ol men who bad patiently waited to Court, re solved to sir it out so long as tbs gas homed, or, perhaps, so loop aa the jury were In retiracy. One old ticWuf had m progress a charming nap, which extended to bia losing a view of that which be tad waited for. ... . . , ~. The prisoner came into Court la custody of the Hhcrifl, almost simultaneously with (be Judge. Her costume was somewhat altered. In place of the mourning cloak there was upon ter shoulders a mink cape. There was cow a nervous and anxious, and some what worn appearance. She took hr seat as though in fear, acd yet there waa a lighting up .of hope, aa her counsel, Mr. R. t?. Wilson, only was present, and to film she tamed an appealing glance, ab though she would learn trom him the result of the jurors* dellbetalios. The verdict was : “We, the jury, find the de fendant guilty ofmanstangntcr, as charged lb the Indictment, ana fix her term of Imprisonment at one year In the penitentiary.” „ A The prisoner heard the verdict with apparent composure, but there waa per cepttble a great emotion: a grand disappointment; a crushing out of long cherished teellng buoyed np by promises ot more ftvorabte results. The jniy was then polled, audio answer to the solemn question pnt by the Clerk ol the Court, “Was this sod Is thia now your verdicts” each Jnror answered “it was and iscow.” She watched and watched until the last juror spoke, when her bosom heaved and sign alter sigh was beard. A moment's rest and Ihvn she (arced to the Sherlfl, asked him, “Arc you ready tot mo now?’ and went hack to her seclusion. A motion tor a now ti ial vaa recorded. And the Court adjourned. SPURGEOS OS CAUDLES. An locenlona Method of Convoying ISellskoDß Instruction Lecture by the Great Baptist Celebrity. A Liverpool paper Airnlshea the following synopsis of a leciorc recently delivered by Mr. Spurpeon, the celebrated preacher of London, on “Candles.” Tho Importance of the candle as an illustration Is proved by many references to Uoly Scripture. This being done, the lecturer proposes to show of what things the candle may be said to be emblematical: 1. Seven candles of different lengths lllns- Irate the seven stages of human life, teach out mortality, and bid us 44 work while It la called to-day.” 2. Candle-box! fall of candles represents many churches which are of no service to the age. As the candles are of no practical nse till lighted, so churches arc useless till heavenly fire lights them. 3. A number of fine wax candles, not lighted, looking down with disldaio upon & poor rushlight wb‘o*n is lighted, aud thereby doing more fine neighbors. 94. An Sullt candle, woich, placed In can dle-.Vjcks of nil sorts, yet gives no light in ony one of them, shows how men may lay the blome of their own uselessness upon the position of Ilfo lu which they are placed. 5.

Represents a lantern with a pane oat, slowing thereby that men who trust to their own strength have an opening through which the wind ol temptation can blow and extinguish their light. 9. A dirty, battered lantern. Its filthiness rendered conspicuous by the light within. Is an emblem of professed Christians, whose Csnlls arc noticed the more because of tticlf profession. iC. Isa lantern with cracks In it, through which the light gleams brightly, illustrating the fact that very great gifts are often given to those who Lave very weak, trail bodies. 11.

One candle lighting another Illustrates Rod’s method of instrumentality. 14. A small taper lighting a great candle, shows bow humble Individuals arc able often to influence greater, a* John Owen blessed by an unknown country preacher. 15. A candle blown ont while an attempt is being made to light another, shows bow acts of Indlfcrcet zeal arc often chocked. 16. The night light, which portrays those kind and generous women woo do good to the sick and visit the homes of the poor. 17. A noble was caudle, over which a sheet of tin is held and made black by smoke, but being held by the side, acts oaa reflector to increase Its brightness, shows that we should not be constantly striving to pry out our neighbors’ ftnlts, font rather acting as reflectors to Increase their splendor. 18.

(From the Detroit Free Press.] An Interesting couple, giving their names us Mr. sod Mrs. Palms, took rooms at a boarding-house In this city a lew weeks since. At the end of the first week, board becoming dne, the party failed to appear at nopper, and were accordingly sought for la their rooms. The wife was round in a par oxysm of distress occasioned by the pro longed absence other husband. She said he too threatened to leave her, and she feared he had carried out his purpose. She was among strangers, without the means of reluming to her friends or paying her board. To a late hour of the night her sobs were beard, ceasing only when the last boarder bad retired. Her grief was Inconsolable during the days that followed, in which no bnsband appeared. The distress of the young and interesting wife, deserted by a cruel husband, awakened the sympa thies of the boarders, and a handsome sub* fcripllon for her benefit was taken np and placed In the bands of one of the number, a susceptible youth of eighteen years, who volunteered to make the presentation. He called at her floor and made known the object of his visit. Mrs. Palms, overcome with emotion at the unexpected kind* ness, leaned her head upon his shoulder and wept in gratitude. The interest awakened grew stronger, and the young man, seeking to mitigate the sufferings she was undergoing, offered to escort her to places of amusement. She retdlly assented, sod for several successive nights they might bare been seen occupying a private box at one of the theatres. The confiding youth, at her solicitation, advanced her a sum sufficient to replenish her winter wardrobe, which was to be refunded when she should hear from her Either. On Saturday last the landlady determined *to seek for an Interview with her' lady boarder, and solicit payment of two weeks' board then doc. and learn her Intentions for the future. With that view she knocked at the door of her room, hut meeting with no response, she en tered the room, wnlcb she found deserted. A dilapidated old trunk was the only article left by the female. Since her sudden depasture it has been ascertained that the husband and wife together left the city by the Southern Railroad, doubtless to try tbeearac dodge on feme other trusting landlady and sympathis ing boarders of some neighboring city.
