Mhs Il.irnei llosiner, though bIiu lias achieved ulrendy a hijfli ar istic reputa tion, is cnlv in her twunty.si'Veitth year. Her futh' r is a pliysiuiua of W'uti't iuwn, Mam., and this mutliurless girl was left in hii th'ire at ou i-arly uge. She was a delicate child, nnd her lather' first cure was to airenihuii lurcoiis iluiion. With thu view. 114 eiicourngeu her to takti a." much outdoor t-xuicim its ponMblo, and bhe Mion louriu'd to lov tlioso excitiujj tp ii tj usually iiiOiionliioJ hy toys and young nnMi.

Among her early uccompli.'Iuneiils were music and dfuuluj. A coriespondciit of the New York Mirror thus ptal of skiiio of her. hand i wjrl. in Iter liomo at, aterunvu: 'There wertf lird' nest of vuiioiu kindj, wiih their dirlerenl colored eygsj 0 e u crow's nest she tlimlml forty feet to so cure, theti having tied it to her lock, slip ped down the ulmot Lranchlens ir mk.

At leost live hundred rpecies of butterflies, artis tically arranged, form one picture, so to speak, between the front windows; vari ous reptiles, preserved in alcohol, are her center-table ornorntnts; deer-antlers, with cured ex-shelis on thu brunches, are her car.dclnbras; a lluejay her inkstand; a turtlr.rh"ll, suspended by a chuiu, her card-receiver; thr e half lemons trim- m'd with gold leaf, bound tojether, uie her,wiifer-box,'Safjd-box, etc. ' Here; too, 1 are hi r. first eiiprts ut Uravviug. paintiog, nnd in plaster; (her first nun ble.but, Nupjli oii, is in her father's liln-aiy.) As we gazed around ' the ' parlor which her mind fashioned ui.d her hands arranged,! and fell the orinhty (tu which -pen wf 111 1 no cannot do justice, ) of all its little de tail., we invohininrily did homage to her genius nnd felt a lirmcr faith in her fu ture. ' Some years ago, she evinced a decided taste uiid't ileiit for sculpture, and wrought a bust .from the marble 1 with' her . own hands. Her fa;her accordingly decided to send her to Italy to study; and at Homo sho placed herself uuder tho tuiiio t of (Jibson. Among' the works she sent home as proofs of her industry and skill, were a statue of the nvninh (Enne, and statue of Puck. In Europe, she execu-i ted a medallion heud if Ludy ConiUncc Tulbot, und a monument to an halm 11 girl in the chunh of Andre della Fraure. This design represents a young girl sleep ing on a couch which retts utou a sar cophagus; the drapery nnd altitude ore described a admirable, and the likeness striking. But her chef a" auort is tho Beatrice Cenci, a full -length statute, which attracted ercnt attention and elicit- ed warm iirai in londod, and ' which has recently been exhibited vvh ' na loss mrxets in this citv. Wlicu she bad com- pitted tlm work, h-r master, liibson, de! clared ihat he had nothing more to teach her. The fttttut) represents the unfortn. j iiate lientrica n t!e eve ot " etveutun. Her biographer tells us that the jailor, in entering nor 'con, round ner tranqmiiy uttacheu thereto, tliei tt imii oe lawtui asleep. It is this point of time in her for any agent or agents, to bo appointed sad tory that Miss Hosuier lias selected j by the Governor of siid .Territory, to se for iliu 1 ration. The wretched girl, worn ; lect, subject to the approval cf" the Secre- out bv physical and moral suffering, hat' yielded to the pressure of exhaustion.
