We regret to notice the death of Miss Mary Carpenter,

the sister of Dr. Carpenter, and one of the beat known of English philanthropists. Her special care was reformatory management, to which she had devoted years of disinterested labour, going oat, for example, four times to India, and reporting carefully, without fee or reward, on the Indian system of punishments. We were frequently unable to agree with Miss Carpenter, but the is entitled to all credit for a-most unselfish and unwearied effort to benefit a class of mankind who could repay her nothing.
