Origin of thO litat In lIIInOis.
The origin of the copperhead riot in
Illinois is explairied by a correspondent!
of tho phice g o :7'ribune,-writing from
Mattoon, April 1. According to this
account the outbreak was a scheme to
drive out the few soldiers stationed in the l
toWn of Charleston. The writer says : I
:. "About nine or ten o'clock on Monday
morning one William G. Hart, formerly
aciiog Provost-3.ldrshal, had a difficulty
!with a copperheag,
.in which the 'latter
teame,out second best. - He went and told
life story to his brethren, and they, see
ink that the soldiers were very few and
unarmed, determined after consultation
to clean them out.! In order to do- this
one Nelson Wells, ii big, burly 'butternut'
was commissioned sto set the ball rolling.
Acting under thiiiorder, he Went stalking
!around like Paddy at 'Donnybrook fair,
'asking for some on:e to tread on his coat
tail. ; In the !meantime the court had
been; opened by Judge Constable, arid
JOhn O'llair, the Sheriff of Coles county,
'as attending to the dutLis of his office. I
Jelin R_ Eden, however, anticipating!
what' was coming;. and not wishing to .
10:nil:tate himself, did not attempt to de
liver his oration, but quietly started off'
on foot about half,past ten, accompanied
by one. Schofield, a leading copperhead
and a member of the K. G. C's. It is
asserted by some • that he has gone to
• Washington, and Will not show himself
here for-some tiMe.
"About thremh'clock 'in the afternoon
Oliver Saleo, of the fifty-fourth Illinois,
went up to Wells and tapped him on the I
shoUlder,.at the same time asking him it'?
tliere were any copperheads about. 'Wells I
replied, 'Yes, A- 9 you. lam one',' and!
drawing his revolVer fired. This was the
signal, the reverberations of this shot had I
hardly cased when the copperheads corn- 1
tn enced firing indilicriininately among the
soldiers and citizens."
AI despatch to the Chicago Post from
lAlationn says : •
"Alost of the diSpatehes concerning the
Charleston insurrection are grossly untrue.
, There *as not the slightest provocation.
Three days now spent in taking testimony
show a pion to murder all the soldiers in
Charleston. The , leaders were John ©'-
.1 Nelson Wells, John Frazer, and
others About one hundred are impli
cated, thirty-seven of whom are now un
der arrest. The, ringleaders escaped.—H
Efforts arc being made in the surrounding;
country to rally rebels, but have failed.
They are believed to have alI disbanded
and fled. A body of two hundred was
reported in Jasper yesterday, going south.
Eight:deaths have . occurred, five of which I
were soldiers; one other will die. The
soldiers were unarmed. All the rioters
came armed with extra guns in wagons."

FIRE WOOD 1.7.4 ENGLAND.—The Lon•
don Review has a description of the "Tine
wood," "pine wud," sold in the streets of
that:metropolis. j The writer Anys :
Thu wood is cut to tile proper lengths
by powerful steam sari mills, working
' night and day, and then it is split and
stover]. The suceessfill lighting of a tire
depends upon the perfect dcssication of
the wood as much as anything; this is
obtained by drying it With great heat—
to such heat, in ,fact, that it becomes sur
rounded with a kind of "as ; which leaps
as it ,were to meet the fire' applied to it.
The ordinary fire:wood is sold in bundles
as the reader must be
. aware; but the
"wheel" is. built up to the shape of a
wheel iii the most ingenious 'manner. The
builders arc young girls, rows of whom
,are seen einploied in the factory, each ,
Girl baving_an iron matrix iu the shape
3f a wheel before her.
Into this matrix she drops with the
utmost rapidity s' ufficient pieces of wood
to.'Make the rim and spokes of her min
iata're wheel ; by the aid of a lever the
different parts are jammed close, lifted a
little from the imatrix, and tied firmly
together with a siring. Some of the more
nimble of the gfrls will thus build thou
sands of these wheels during working
hours. Tlie laat process is to dip them
in a:cauldron of boiling resin and the pat. ,

well, go out where this patent wood is em
plo'yed, as it lights with the utmost ease,
burns with fury,'and gives out sufficient /
heat to boil a kettle, known' as the 5e9- 1
notnical patent firewood kettle, by which
three pints of water can be boiled in a few
minutes at the'cost of a farthing. % Indeed
a large quantity is used by bachelors and
private families for this purpose. One

in any ordinarY sized stove, and at the'

GOLD DISCOVERY IN CANADA.-A
lady in Bridgeport, Conn., has received a
letter containing the following
"A wonderful discovery of gold has

Let it not be said after this that Pierce

Stewart of New York, a gentleman of the,
"Douglas was asked by Gen. Stewart,
(who was malting a New Years' call on
Mr. Douglas,) 'What will be the result of
the efforts of Jefferson Davis and his as
sociates to divide .the Union ?' Douglas
replied : 'The Cotton States are making
an effort to draw in the herder States . to
their scheme of secession,
and I am too l
fearful they will succeed. If they do
succe9d,• there will be the most terrible
civil war the world has ever seen,.lasting
for years. Virginia will become a char
nel house; but the end will be the tri
umph of the Union cause. One of their
first efforts will be to take possession of
this capital to give them prestige abroad,
Ibut they will never succeed in taking it ;
Ibut it will become a city of hospitals;
the churches will be used for the sick and
wounded, and even the Minnesota block
(now the Douglas Hospital) may be de
voted to that purpose before the end of
the war.' Gen. Stewart inquired, 'What
justification is there for all this?' Doug
las replied, 'There is no justification nor
any pretence of any. If they will remain
in the Union I will go as far.as the Con
stitution will permit to maintain their
just rights, and I do not doubt but a ma
jority of Congress will do the same. But,'
said he, rising on his feet and extending
his arm, /If the Southern States attempt
to secede from this Union without further
cause, bait in favor of their having just
so many slaves and just so much Slave
territory as they can hold at the point of
the bayonet, and no more.'"
Errancipation Hit Maryland.
Although the Secessionists of Mary
land refused to go to the pulls last week,
there is no doubt that a' large majority of
the qualified citizens voted, and the result
is extremely gratifying to every friend of
liberty. The people have decided to
tall a convention to amehd the Consti
tution of the State, and they hive elect
ed a decided majority Of delegates in
favor of the immediate and unconditonal
emancipation of all the slaves. Simply
las a matter of humanity and civilizatiou,
Iwe rejoice at the res.tilt, But the people
of Maryland are to be congratulated on
tit as a matter of self-interest. • Slaves
have long ceased to be potable pioperty
in that-State. • In many' counties the
institution has been virtually almost ex
tinct for years, and those counties have
been the most prosperous and progres
sive. II some of the southern counties
money has been made by raising ezroes
to sell to more Southern States; but in
all of them, slaves, as laboring men,
could not compete advantageously with
freemen. To get rid of the institution,
therefore, in any manner, is a boon to
the people, of Maryland. To get rid of I
it in a peaceful, constitutional way, by
the vote of the citizens themselves, is
something over which Marylanders may
be proud and the, friends of freedom may
rejoice. Henceforth Maryland is to be
a free State, and we anticipate for her a
glorious destiny. We Pennsylvanians
can heartily extend to her our congrat
ulations and sympathies. Her great

!carry to market the wheat, corn, flour,
I iron, coal and other products of Pennsyl
vania. Her noble Chesapeake bay is the
natural nutlet to the ocean of a large
district of this State, Her metropolis

institution of slavery i 3 forayer extinct.
