You can try TeXGyre Termes (a clone of Times, I think) which is included 
with TeXLive 09 --- you might have to search for it to install it on 
your system. Are you using Windows or Mac or ...? There are other 
available fonts with that particular glyph (e.g. Linux Libertine, etc.).

You can also add this to your preamble for use with XeLaTeX:

\usepackage{xltxtra} % this also loads fontspec and xunicode
\usepackage[nolocalmarks]{polyglossia} % for hyphenation patterns
\setdefaultlanguage[variant=american]{english} % see polyglossia
