Library Room in the Capitol, ) Washington, Dec. 25 £ Monument to Bishop Hobart.—It is known by a number of our citizens, that the Vestry of Tri nity Church have ordered a most expensive Mo- 1 numeut to be put up in Trinity Church, to the memory of the lamented Bishop Hobart, and for , several months the workmen have been employ- j ed in taking down the rear end of the building , for the purpose of accomplishing the object; on ; Sa in da v the work was completed, and yesterday j the ( ingregalion were again permitted to wor ship a* former I v The Monument is a most eg-1 M M'i’e piece of Italian marble, executed by Ball , Hughes, Esq. representing the Bishop, as large as li! *, in bis last moments, reclining m a chair, wrh his right hand resting firmly on ail open bi ble placed in his lap. A female figure repre senting religion is standing bv his ride, pointing _ ._ • .1 i ~ __ . kh.d upon him The recess is so constructed ! that teal light is reflected in the happiest manner. ' The dying position of the prelu»e, the expression | ot his countenance raised to Heaven, fhe hible, ! chai', drapery and natural position ol the limbs 'are strikingly effective. The female figure representing Religion, and . pointing to realms of bliss, as a rewaid of his ! faith and labors, is exquisitely fi»e. The whole 'occupies the extreme end of the Church behind »he Chancel, and is so judiciously placed that the whole may b*‘ s**en from all parts ol the Church. The woik, as a finished piece of Sculpture, is one that reflects the highest ciedit on Mr. Hughes, as an artist;—and its magnitude does g.eat nedit to the liberal feeling of the Vestry and Cong;ovation, over whom the lamented Bish op presided, with an ardour, seldom equalled m the histon of the Church. The monument erect ed on the present occasion, surpasses m extent, -beauty, and expense, any thing of the kind ill tin * country. | The following is the insription: — •* B'*nenh this chancel rest the mortal remains 1 of John llenrv Hobart, Rec'nr of Trini'v Church in this City, Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the’Slote ot New-York; born in Phi ladelphia in 1775—died during a Tisita ion *o?he western parts of his diocese, in Auhort, 1‘2'h S-pt 1830. This vestry, in behalf of the assm i ate vestry of Trinity Church, have caused this monument to be erected in memory of the Public services. Private virtues, and Christain Graces of their beloved and revered Pastor.

When not more than eight or nine years of age he used to perform on the organ in i the R.*v. Nlr. Ely’s church at Monsnn.

It was the super intendence of this work while stereotyping for a second edition, that brought Mr. D- to New York, in the autumn of 1830.
