The i! patriots, as they were called by theca who, i appreciated their motives, for the mutt I part, preferred the bumble and legitimate t' bccupaliuu of making charcoal to the de- I baaing business f highway robbery, and r accordingly look to the former bnsincM. t At (bat time there resided at Cxarnxa a ? young man named Cape-Bianco, who; | was an extensive mannfoctnrer of char- j t coal, and derived no small income from i that trade. Being a warm patriot, and •; sympathizing with his eennlrymon. 'he . gave employment to as many of them at - circumstances would permit. II In this slate of affairs, no light ap i pcariug to dawn upon the country.

May our work, under these au* pices, be of benefit to mankind, and-of especial advantage to our country.”- Such was the origin of the Carbonari. They spread rapidly throughout Italy. ; All classes, without exception, gave rep resentativea to this society. It* influenes extended from iho opt of the ! the eounetl uf the kiag.
