THE VOICE OP FREEDOM,
BY I. (1. WHITTIER.
A hymn more, O roy lyre!
Praise to the God above,
Of joy, and life, and love,
Sweeping its strings of fire!
Ob! who the speed of bird and wind,
And sunbeam's glance, will lend to me,
That snaring upward, I may find
My resting-place and home in thee!
Thou, whom my soul, midst doubt and gloom,
Adoretli with a fervent flame
Mysterious spirit! unto whom
. Pertains nor sign nor name!
Swiftly my lyre's soft murmurs go,
Up from the cold and joyless earth,
Back to the God who made them flow,
Whoso moving spirit sent them forth.
But as for me, O God! for me,
The lowly creature of thy will.
Lingring and sad, I sing to thee,
An earth bound pilgrim still!
Oh! watchers of the stars ot night,
Who breathe their fire, as we the air
Suns, thunders, slars, and rays of light,
Oh! say, is He the Eternal there ?
Bend there around his awful throne
The seraph's glance, the angel's knee?
Or are thy inmost depths his own,
O wild and mighty sea!
Thoughts of my soul, how swift ye go!
Swift as the eagle's glunce of fire,
Or arrows from the archer's bow,
To the fair aim of your desire!
Thought after thought, ye thronging rise.
Like spring-doves from the startled wood,
Bearing, like them, your sacrifice
Of music unto God.
And shall these thoughts of joy and love
Come back again no more to me
Returning, like the patriarch's dove.
Wing-weary from the eternal sea.
To bear within my longing arms
The promise-bough of kindlier skies,
Pluck'd from the green, immortal palms
Which shadow Paradise ?
All-moving Spirit! freely forth,
At thy command, the strong wind goes;
Its errand to the passive earth
Nor art can stay, nor strength oppose.
Until it folds its weary wing
Once more within the hand divine;
So, weary, from Its wandering,
My spirit turns to thine!
Child of the sea, the mountain stream, '
From its dark caverns, hurries on,
Ceaseless by night and morning's beam,
By evening's star, and noontide's sun.
Until at last it sinks to rest,
O'erwearied in the wasting sea,
And moans upon its mother's breast
So turns my bouI to Thee!
O Thou who bid'st the torrent flow,
Who Iendest wings unto the wind
Mover of all things! where art Thou ?
Oh! whither shall I go to find
The secret of thy resting-place ?
Is there no holy wing for me,
That soaring, I may search the space
Of highest heaven for Thee i
Oh! would I were as free to rise
As leaves on autumn's whirlwind borno
The arrowy light of sunset skies,
Or sound, or lay, or star of morn,
Which melts in beaven at twilight's close,
Or aught which soars uncheck'd and free
Through earth and heaven, that I might lose
Myself in finding Thee!
From the Knickerbocker.
Rev. Mr. IJascomb's Sketch of the Great Cat
The following picture of Niagara is from tliQ
pen of an eloquent divine, with whose high ropu
tation our readers are not unacquainted, i o tnose
who have seen the falls, it will recommend itself
for its vivid truth ; and to those who have not, we
commend the writer's intoductory note3 to the ed
" My Dear Sir : In complying with your re
quest to furnish you with the following letter, for
publication in the Knickerbocker Magazine, I
must claim the protection of one of the most in
dulgent canons of criticism ; that which suggests
that every production, claimng to be a mere reve
lation ot personal relations ana private ieeiing,
should be judged of mainly in view of the mind's
peculiar state-- in giving it birth. The annexed
sketch, except the last paragraph, was written upon
an angle of ' Table Rock,' at the instance, and for
the exclusive gratification of a friend, and without
any, the most remote reterence to publication, men
or subsequently. It was produced under the in
fluence of high wrought feelings, and does little
more than reveal the heart's mythology, in pres
ence of one of the most learlul manilestations ot the
power and irrandeur of physical nature. If the
feeline which gave birth to the fragment you
have asked be responded to by the reader, I have
nothing to regret, and nothing (art her to hope lor
" Very truly and sincerely,
"II. B. BASCOMB.
" New York, Feb-WID."
My Dear E : I have seen, surveyed,
and communed with the whole !. and,, awed and
bewildered, as if enclianted. before the- revelation
of a mystery, T attempt to write. You ask me in
your last for some detail, veritable account of the
lal Is, and' I should be glad: to- gratify you; but
how shall I essay to-paint a scene that utterly baf
fles all conception, and. renders worse-than fruitless
very attemp at1 description ? In five minutes af
ter my arrival, on the evening of the fifth, I de
scended the winding path from the" Pavilion," on
the Canadian side, and for the first time in my life
saw this unequalled cascade from " Table Rock ;''
the whole indescribable scene, in bold outline,
bursting on my view at once. I heard and read
much, and imagined more, of what was before nie.
I was perfectly familiar with the often-told-, the far-
travelled story ot what 1 saw ; but the overpower
ing reality on which 1 was gazing, motionless us
the rocl: on which 1 stood, deprived me oi recol
lection, annihilated all curiosity, and with the emo
tions of snblimltv. till now unfelt, and all unearth
ly, the involuntary exclamation escaped me, " God
o'erandeur ! what a scene.
Hm tl mnipstv of the siffht, and the interest of
the moment, how depict them ? The huge am-
n tiir R of water, lumuiina anu ionii" noove, anu
dashing on, arched and pillard as it glides, until it
reaches the principle chute, and then, in one vast
column, bounding, with madningioar and rush,
into the depths beneath, presents a spectacle so tin-
utterably appalling, that language falters; words
are no longer signs, and I despair giving ou any
adequate idea of what I saw and full. Vet this is
not all. The eye and the mind necessarily take
in other objects, as parts of the grand panorama ;
forests, cliffs, and islands ; banks, foam, and sprav;
wood, rock, and precipice, dimmed with the rising
fog and mist, and obscurely gilded by the softning
tints of the rainbow: These all belong to the
picture ; and theeffcet of the whole is immeasura
bly heightened by the noise of the cataract, now
reminding you of the reverberations of the heav
ens in a tempest, and then the eternal roar of the
ocean, when angered by the winds !
1 he concave bedol rock, irom which the water
falls some two hundred feet, into the almost bound
less reservoir beneath, in the section of a circle,
which at first sight from Table Rock, presents
something like the geometrical curve of the rain
bow; and the wonders of the grand "crescent,
thus advantageously thrown upon the eye in com
bination, and the appropriate sensations and boom
ot the waters, render the sight more surprisingly
sublime than any thing I had looked upon or con
ceived of. As it regards my thoughts and feel-
ngs at the time, I can help you to no conception
of their character. Overwhelming astonishment
was the only bound between thought and thought;
and wild, and vague, and boundless, were the as
sociations of that hour ! Before me the fullness
of the congregated " lakes of the north" were en
throned and consecrated, within a circumference
embraced by a single glance of the eye ! Here I
saw, rolling and dashing at the rate of twenty-five
hundred millions of tons per day, nearly one half
il all the Iresh water upon the surlace of the
On the American side was a vast deluge, nine

nunareu anu imy icei in Dreacun, witn a tall ol
one hundred and eighty or ninety, met fifty feet
hove the level of the gulf, by a huge projection of
the rock, wiixh seems to break the descent and
continuity of the flood, only to increase Us tierce
overwhelming bound. And turning to the "cres
cent," I saw the mingled rush of foam and tide,
ashing with fearful strife and desperate emulation
four hundred yards of the sheet rough and
parry, and the remaining three hundred a deep
sea-like mass of living green rolling and heaving
like a sheet of emerald. Even imagination failed
me, and I cou Id think of nothing but ocean let loose
from his bed and seeking a deeper gulf below!
The fury of the water, at the termination of its
fall, combined with the columned strength of the
cataract, and the deafning thunder of the flood,
are at once inconceivable and indescribable. No
imagination, however creative, can correspond
with the grandeur of the reality.
I have already mentioned, and it is important
that you keep it in view, the ledge of the rock, the
verge of the cataract, rising like a wall of equal
height, and extended in semicircular form across
the whole bed of the river, a distance of more
than two thousand feet, and the impetuous flood,
conformingto thisarrangment, in makingits plunge,
with mountain weight, into the great horse-shoe
basin beneath, exhibits a spectacle of the sublime
in geographical scenery, without perhaps a paralle
in nature. As I leaned over the Table Rock, and
cast my eye downward upon the billowy turbulence
of the angry depth, where the waters, tossing and
winning, coning anu springing, with the energy
. i i - - i i i .i
ol an earthquake and a rapidity which almost
shocked my vision, I found the scene sufficient to
appal a sterner spirit than mine ; and I was glad
to turn away and relieve my mind by a sight of
the surrounding scenery; bays, islands, shores,
and forests, every where receding in due perspec
tive. The rainbow of the " crescent," and Ainer
ican side, which are only visible from the western
bank of the Niagara, and in the afternoon, seem
to diminish somewhat from the awfulness of the
scene, and to give it an aspect of rich and mellow
grandeur, not nnlike the bow of promise, throwing
its assuring radience over the retiring waters of
1 he " rapids, which commence nearly a mile
above the cataract, and, sparkling in the sun, spread
out like a sea of diamonds, seem admirably to
give notice to what awaits below ; and, when ex
amined from a position on Goats Island, become
extremely interesting, from the dash nnd foam o
the broken flood, the noise which, distinct from
that of the great fall, would remind you of the mur-
murs ol nn Alpine forest, in the rising swell
of the coming storm. In crossing the riv
er below the falls, you have one of the richest
views oi tne wnoie cascade that can possi
bly be imagined, and the rising bank and mossy
rock, the lofty trees and luxuriant shrubbery, on
either side, are in hue keeping with the scene, and
are essential to the keeping of the unity and com
pletcuess ot the picture, liut what most interested
me here was the tumultuous tossing and whirling
of the water, where its depth must be now more
than two hundred feet, and its width at least seven
hud red yards. The whole mass seems to be heav
ing with infuriated life. A thousand counter cur
rents and edies meet, break and mingle, in the
general " torrent and whirlwind" of the waters.
Within the circumference of two or three hudred
yards, near the Arnericaifshore, this singular ac
tion of the element gives the water an elevation
of from five to seven feet above the ordinary level ;
and the strong colliding currents arc seen tossing
and struggling with volcanic force like the Adriatic
turned up from the bottom by a tempest.
but the most appalling combination of wonder
and awe was felt when, after descending the spi
ral staircase at 1 able Kock, I passed under the
n i 1- i. i. i
great falling sneer.. Divesting myseit oi the most
burthensome part of my clothes and girding an oil-
oth mantle about me, with a hood lor the protec
tion of the head, I entered the hollow space, half lu-
ninous, half obscure, between the projecting rock
and the boundless mass of water pouring over its
arch, like a sea of molten lead. In this way I
proceeded one hundred and fifty or sixty feet, to
Termination Kock, a point Deyono which no
uman heir g has ever penetrated, and here, amid
tempest of wind and and spray, almost depriving
me of respiration, I paused to look up and around,
awed and agitated by the stirring gandeur and
sombre rmstcriousness of all I could hear and
The edge of the precipice, over which the water
mils, is a projection ol about fifty feet over the
base where I stood. After remaining here for
several minutes, and selecting- some nebbles from
the path at my feet, with an increased sense of
danger, I effected mv retreat, sincere! v thankful
that 1 had not purchased the gratification of my
curiosiiv witn tne loss 01 mv li e. i SDent lour
days and nights, with the exception of a few hours
for rest, in the examination of the falls, and in sol-
itude with the majesty of the engrossing scene
a majesty all its own untyped and unshadowed
bv autrht I had ever seen before: and having-
surveyed the great object of my visit, from nearly
a hundred points of view, I was more than satisfied
that the cataract of Niagara is a wonder in nature,
wholly unique in its kind, and affording a rich,
if not an unequalled harvest of interest and obser
vation to every beholder. Indeed nature seems to
have done her work herein a mood and upon a
scale of the most creative prodigality; consulting
alike, as the Pagan poet would say, " her own
amusement and the admiration of man."
My last look at the falls was a night view from
the upper portico of the Pavillion; the brilliant
lamps nnd mooned loveliness of an autumnal
heaven adding to the splendor of the vision.
From this point, amid the tremulous shaking of
the earth and the heavens, in silent communion
with the mighty cataract, the eye takes a more
extended range the most magnificent ol pros
pects, lhe whole scenery, diversified and yet
one, is spread out before you in living beauty and
picteresque majesty. You see the plains and for
ests above, the cliffs, and rocks, and islands a-

of the watery mass, while the fall of the vast per
vading column strikes your ear, like the thunder-
chorus of the " vasty deep," warring with its

and when I retired, fatigued and exhausted, and
threw myself upon my pillow, it was only to feel
the more intensely, the power and expression, the
oneness, the denth. the nameless grandeur of the
scene ; and ear and thought still lingered to catch

In filling my sheet, dear brother, what topic
among the many which deeply interest my feel
ings, shall I select ? Shall I tell you that we are
all anxiously waiting for intelligence from the
United States ? This is one of our severe trials.
We are always from 6 to 15 months behind the
rest of the world ; and are now more than a year
behind you. We often look over the calm wa

some vessel direct from the land of our fathers.

and Satan, and made the heirs of life eternal. Oh,

character and future prospects of the people of
these islands, should stimulate all who hope in
the mercy of Christ to hasten to all the benighted

A new and valuable remedy for all diseases
arising from impurities of the blood,
Morbid Secretions of the Liver
Also, a suesistute for CALOMEL, as a CATHARTIC
in FEVERS, and all Billions diseases, and
for ordinary Family Physic.
This popular Medicine which has received such general
approbation as a remedy for Dyspepsia, Billiout and Acid
Stomachs, Jaundice, Heartburn, Costineness, Head
ache &c. &c, and which is now prescribed by many of the
most respectable Physicians, is for sale by authorized Agents
in most of the towns in the United States, and at wholesale
by the Proprietors, Hartford, Conn.
A few only of the latest certificates can be inserted here,
for numerous others see large pamphlets just published.
New Haven, Ohio, Dec. 4th, 183S.
Gentlemen, Seeing the very high estimation held forth
by the Agent in this section, and by those who had the op
portunity of trying Dr. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills
and being under belief of the firm having restored healthy
secretions of the glandular system more than once, by us
ing the Tomato Apple as a vegetable ; I have been induc
ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum
nal Intermittents, prevalent in this section of the States, I
hare no doubt Dr. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills will, in
a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use of Cal
omel. I believe that in diseased liver they are more
prompt in their elTcct, and as efficient, as Calomel I have
tried them in various other diseases, as Rheumatism, Dys
pepsia, Jaundice, &c, with the most happy elTccts. Ai
far as my knowledge extends, I have no hesitancy in rec
ommending them as a highly valuable Family Medicine.
From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated
New York, Nov. 6th, 1838.
To Ii. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used your Com
pound Tomato Pills, the past season, for the Liver com-
plaint : and am happy to add, with decided benefit : and
therefore take great pleasure in recommending them ; as
well from a sense of gratitude to the benevolent Proprietor,
as with a view of serving the cause of philanthropy ; from
a sense of duty I owe the public to bearing my testimony
in favor of this the world s invaluable medicine.
Six vears since, I suffered from a malady, pronounced by
the concurrent opinion of a council of physicians, a chron
ic inflammation oj the Liver; and underwent a skilful
mercurial treatment ; being confined for many months ;
and at length mainly restored to a tolerable degree of
health, though not without an apprehension that I should
be similarly afflicted. My fears have been but too well
confirmed by a recurrence of nearly all the symptoms of
this dreadful malady the past summer ; when accidentally
I heard of your Pills, and learning something of their prop
erties and characters, and their rapidly increasing eclcbri-
ty, 1 resolved on trying them. 1 eeling as 1 did, a repug
nance to resorting again to Calomel, and after ineffectually
and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professing a
specific remedy for this complaint, I purchased a box of the
Messrs. Sands, Druegists,corncr William and Fulton streets
duly authorized agents ; they presenting me, to accompa
ny the box, a pamphlet containing a specification, direc
tions, &c. I had not taken one box of them before I hap
pily experienced their healing efficacy and curative effects ;
and now that I have given them a thorough trial, can
cheerfully and unhesitatingly pronounce them the very
best remedy extant for any derangement or affection of the
Liver or Spleen, Billious Affections, Palpitation of the
Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of its forms : also as a good
family medicine, are the best with which I am acquainted.
At my recommendation and solicitation many of my
friends and acquaintances have taken them as a family med
icine, with perfect success. I grant mv permission to use
this as you please. Yours truly,
1SAAL YV. AV1..KY, 17 William street.
From the lice. J. JV. Sprague, Pastor of the fourth
Congregational Church, Hartford, Conn.
Dr. G. P. Phelps,
Sir For several years past I have found it well to keep
in my family a bottle of castor oil and other simple medi
cines, and no doubt ther timely use has been greatly bene
ficial in preserving our health, tor some time past 1 have
made use of your Compound Tomato Pills, as a substitute
for those medicines, and have been so much pleased with
their mild, yet effective operation, that they have become
our family medicine, while others have been laid aside. I
prefer them for myself and children, to any other medicine
have ever used to correct the irregularities of the stomach
ond bowels. Yours, &c. I. N. SP-RAGUE.
The following Letter, just received, illustrates in nn in
teresting manner, the applicability of this medicine In Tu
mors nnd scrofulous swellings, and is another evidence of
its eTects as an alternative, in changing the action of the
glaniular and absorbent systems, and in renovating the
constitution impaired by protracted disease ; although in
some cases it may take considerable time (as it does for all
remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full
and complete effects.

Dr. PhelDs Dear Sir Your Pills are in great demand;
I have but a few on hand : no one who has taken them but
are perfectly satisfied with their beneficial effects in remov
ing disease, however long standing. I shall be at Hart
ford about tho 15th of next month, and I will bring with
