Chicago, April 7.
A Peoria dispatch says that parties from Medoria state that Mr. WORKMAN, wife of the Eureka Methodist minister, confessed to killing Mrs. HEDGES at Eureka. She says she did it in self defense. The general feeling is Mrs. WORKMAN was driven frantic by the discovery of her husband's too intimate relations with the Widow HEDGES, and, in a fit of desperation, killed the supposed cause of her domestic misery.
