A letter in the Richmond Dispatch, dated Charleston, Va., March 9, says:- Mrs. Allibone, the oldest sister of George W. Turner, who was slain by John Brown and his associates, was buried here to-day, by the side of her brother. She died at Mount Hope Lunatic Asylum, whither she was taken shortly after her brother’s death. She never rallied after his murder, but continued to sink until her broken spirit burst its earthly bonds and retured [returned] to its Maker. Another murder to be added to the Harper’s Ferry list.
