Carbold, Alfred, an English Congregational minister, was born at Ipswich, May 7,1821. He was trained for missionary-work, at Bedford, and was there ordained and sent out to Guzerat, Western India, Aug. 7, 1850, where he labored from village to village for ten years. From 1861 to 1870 he labored at Madias, and then returned to England, where he remained two years for the benefit of his health. After two and a half more years earnest work in India he again returned to England, and died there; Sept. 28,1877. In disposition Mr. Carbold was reserved, yet he was greatly loved and revered. He was sound in judgment and fearless in doing what he thought was right. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1878, p. 310. Carbonari (Lat. carbonarii, i. . echarcoal-men). are a modern politico-religious sect -in Italy, somewhat resembling the Freemasons in their practices, and professing to derive their first principles from the Scriptures. They meet in secret societies, and observe certain mystical rites and signs. In 1820 the pope issued a bull of great length against the Carbonari, threatening excommunication against all who became members of the organization. Such secret societies, however, notwithstanding the anathema of the pope, are still in active operation in various parts of Italy.
