Mr. CARPENTER'S name was introduced into one of our last

week's Topics, in some - such manner as seems to have inflicted pain. We regret it.. Somehow, his name had become in our minds mixed up with those of persons who maintain unsound opinions on the subject of property.. He disclaims the opinions and pursuits of those persons. We give him all the benefit of the denial ; without allowing— which would be ridiculous—that we had " wantonly and wickedly aspersed his character." The truth is, we knew too little of his doctrines to justify us in men-

tioning his name at all. •
