From the Heruld of Freedom.
Tho following beautiful Hymn and Odo wero written
for tho anti-slavery meeting at Dover on the 4th by Dr.
Richard Steele of thut place a gentleman to whose pen
anti-slavery has heretofore been under greater obligations
than he hat been willing should bo Y novvn.
Hymn.
Tune Tolland.
O God, beforo whoso awful tbrbno
Seraphs and angeU bow,
Thy matchless power to save wo own.
And pruiso thy mercies now.
Thine aid our pious fathers Bought
To break th' oppressor's rod ;
Grateful for thoir deliv'ranco wrought,
We oflbr thanks to God.
Yut must wo hero with shame confess,
That millions in our land
May still to thee the prayer address,
Lord, stuy th' opprcrsor's hand.'
Oh! listen to thoir broken pray'r
Grant them tho boon they crave,
A day of Jubilee declare,
To bless tho tortur'd slave.
Answer thoir pray'r but let not Mood
For their deliv'rance flow
Be still thy care the roaster's good,
But snatch tho slave from woo.
Then shall his thanks to Thee ascond
Ho on Thy name shall call,
As his Dctiv'rer, Father, Friend,
His Hope, his Life, his all.
Ode.
Tune Timworth.
Hark! tho deep-toned bell, loud pealing,
Hails our nation's Jubilee:
Let us cherish now the feeling,
Which would ev'ry bondman free.
Oh! how precious,
To the heart is Liber tt.
Hear tho bondman's groans of anguiidi
Rise from Carolina's plains;
Where our sablo sinters languish,.
Faint, and dio in galling chains.
Where tV oppressor,
O'er inibrutod woman reigns.
When thojuthlees foe invaded
Proudly posted in tho van,
Afi ic's Bons our armies aided,
Then tho negro was 4 man.
From his bosom
Frco tha crimson current ran.
Dare wo now to bondrgo doom him f
Dare wo call his child a slave ?
Far more kind 'twere, to entomb him
Living, in a freomon's grave.
Sons of freemen,
Rise! your country's honor save.
Ixiuder than the rolling thunder,
May tho voice of freedom be;
'Till each chain is rent asunder,
"Till our brethren ALL aro frco.
PrOClOUS FREEDOM,
Thou art man's, by God's decree..

CHILDHOOD.
Oh, hackneyed theme!'
It has long been a secret but favorite enjoyment
with us, to brood over Uie dreams, tho fancies,
and the errors of our early years. We smile
when we recall the ludicrous mistakes, the com
ical misunderstandings, the exaggerated concep
tionst. the overwhelming mysteries, of those by
gone days. Oh! the trust and simplicity of that
spring-time, when we sat upon the stone ttops
of our father's dwelling, a pinch of s.ilt (not Attic
salt) between our digits, waiting with unexampled
patience and untvavcring hope, for tho pigeons
to come within reach of our lure! Hut turn we
from delusive hope, to actual fear. Childhood
suffers more from fear than grown children te-
niize. mat whieli is ntvlul and mysterious to
children, is, to the older, plain as holy writ. They
forget that 'little things are great to little men.'
They have so long seen all things through the
medium of common sense and actual experience,
that they forget the visions which a lively ima
gination conjures up to torment and affright.
Wjtnessthe breathless haste with which our par
inents nre doffed at even ; the frightful visions
which' were sure to greet our eyes, did we tv
wako in the watches of the night. The dark was
then a creature,; we should have said, as Cole
ridge hath it
'At eno strido comes tlu dark.'
Oh, the conscience of our early years ! it miVht
A . , i.ii - . - .
siuunc me cmitiren ot larger growth. Well do
we remember the mighty effort the unflinching
resolution, with which we turned our untvilling
steps from a passage-way which contained a
Ftore-room from a More-room which contained
certain tempting lumps, which spread their spark
ling white cubes, glittering like jewels to our en
raptured view saying, with proud resolve, "Get
thee behind me, Satan!" liy chance we were o
vorheard; our saying was remembered, and oft
repeated, among the few wonderful sayings of
our early years; it has descended, an h'eirJoom
to younger brother? and sisters a monument of
our self-denial..
The imagination of jjnr early years! We had
no opportunity, when very young, of hearing mu
sic, we had no natural understanding of it ; il
was to us a pleasant mystery. We recollect the
first time we heard a piano; wo imagined spirits
were dancing within the body of the "instrument ;
we could see them in our mind's eye, caperino
nnd frisking about, as the sweet sounds fell upon
our mind's ear, thrilling our soul with delVht un
speakable. s
Our reveries at church! We believe children
indulge more in reverie at church than elsewhere;
tho quiet is so favorable tho sermons, and
sometimes the prayers, are so completely unintel
ligible ! There we dreamed (oh, wicked wights!)
of Fortune's purse, nnd Aladdin's lamp und en
chanted rinsr : there wo travelled with Crusoe
ver the island, enjoying the scantinefs of those
resources which led to tlie (leiignts oi conniving ,
them wo svinnathised with the poor whale on
whose back Sinbad built his fire; but the diamonds
c.lin.rino- to the raw flesh, we could never lancy
tliev ruined diamonds in our estimation ; v(p have
- ... .i i, kw.i... .i
never looueu on mosu jewuis vtuu nan
miration they deserve to command so iuveter
ate is early association. There wo disposed of
boundless wealth: libraries lor one parent buds
and plants for the other ; shells and fossils for
. 111 n t
one sister prints and worii-ooxes tor anoliicr
bushels of marbles for our youngest brother, urn
dogs and a pony for our most worshipful selves
all meted out-in most unrivalled profusion. There
we wished the sparkling wit the profound learn
ing of muturcr years, while yet a child in form
that we might 'astonish the natives' of our own
household, and enjoy in secresy their wonder at
the infant prodigy. 1 here we gazed on the bnl
liant chandelier which hung in the centre of our
church, and thought what a delightful swing the
faries might have, seated snugly within those
glittering festoons ; or how gracefully they might
glide along them, as tiny rope-dancers ! One
Sabbath we had been looking with interest at the
plates in Calmct's dictionary of the Bible. The
reader may remember the representation of hypoc
rites, with wide mouths, the corners upraised to
heaven! A similar feature attracted our gaze at
church. We shrunk back instinctively, saying
to ourselves, "Oh, there comes a hypocrite!
Our first initiation into the mysteries of gcog'
rnphy; We understood not North and South as
relative terms. J low we pitied the people on tn
other side of the globe ! they would surely fall
off. What if we should 'tread through,' and corne
in contact? We could not understand that we
were on the outside of the world ; we certainly
seemed as snugly within as if we had been encased
in a nut-shell. Ihe blue sky was substance the
skin of the world ; had we been near it, we could
have taken hold of it, as if it were silk or leather.
We have always admired the picturesque fancy of
that youth who thought the planets and stars were
crevices and tattered places, where Heaven shone
through ; earnests ot luturc splendor glimpses
of Paradise.
How little we understood of the lessons we me'
chanicallv repealed! While translating ' Les
Aventures de ieleinaque,' we encountered this
phrase, 'se devoucr,' which we chose lo translate
he devoured hitnsell , a moutiilul unique, we
fancy not, indeed, equalling in magnitude that
ol a student who declared he had catena moun
tain! 'Exegi monurnenlum,' Sec. While trans
iting, in 'Liber l'rimus,' this passage, 'Consu
etude dat celeritatem,' we made the accusative
take precedence of the nominative, and under
stood by the assertion that 'Prompt attendance on
the wants of customers, would be n very proper
means of gaining patronage. And the hymns
which childhood prides, itself so much on repeat
ing how perverted their meaning ! how changed
their holy intent!
'Fully builds high upon the sand,
Hut lowly lot my basis be.'
Folly' was a maiden to our childish tho't, whose
hveliing was lofty. We could see its tall form
towering upon a sandbank-. 'Liowly was anoth
er, and a naughty damsel, who was much inclined
to purloin articles which did not belong lo her,
who could not, or would not, understand the dif
ference between 'meum' nnd 'tnum.' 'Basis' was
a vasj or flower-pot, which 'Lowly' was com
manded to 'let be,' or, in another phrase, not to
meddle with.
Our ideas of the Supreme being were, that he
was n man, but larger, taller, and mightier than
common men ; he had large blue eyes, and was
seated comfortably in an easy chair covered with
flowered damask. We could comprehend his
infinite power, but not his immateriality. As we
gaitved knowledge he lost his human appendages,
tuei we thought he must resemble a clould. But
cwon then, his omnipresence was a mystery. Our
early impressions of heaven were not ntull in its
favor. We were told it was a place of 'perfect
rest.' Directly we fancied n scat that must nev
er be vacated, a countenance that must never be
varied, a stillness that must never be interrupted
a state little suied lo our active temperaments, to
which res t in any form was a species of purga
tory. We well remember the awful sensations'
and overwhelming train of thought which seized
us on hearing we should live forever. Oh, the
thrilling incomprehensibility of that Utile phrase,
'for ever!' There was po end to 'forever no
end! no end ! We repealed it again and again ;
we sought to compare it to aught we hud ever
mown, thought or felt ; but no, it eluded our grasp
it baffled our understanding ; we were breath
less with wonder nnd awe; till at last, overcome
with the intensity of our emotions, we wept aloud !
We cold not join the croaking multitude who
prate of the superior joys of childhood, for we
firmly believe in the doctrine of compensation,
in all ages nnd conditions; but we must fain con
fess that the glorious earth lost much of its ex
ceeding brightness with its vanishing lingeries.
Oh, for those dtys when the world was one broad
bright, fairy-1 nd, full of wonderful ei c'lantmcnts
and delightful spells ! What though some wick
ed spirits, in the shape of an unwelcome shower,
would ever r.n.l a ion steal lrom us an earnestly
desired good ? What though some frightful Ogre,
in the share of an immeasurable lesson, would
thrill us with angui-h o:i the threshold of the
recitation hour? What though soma tall giant.
in the shape of an untimely headache, would steal
from our expectant palate the delicate viands?
Still it was one broad, bright fairy-land, where
we were continually stumbling on hidden trea-
suros ; and never, lest we should be stisjiecter
our rhapsody ol driving- arrived at a second cl
liood, wilt we bid farewell to recollections of
,y
Unit
sweet sprin-tiino, when,
'Lifn, with nil its change did seem
A fitful, but delicious dream.'
A. E.
From tho Emporium.
On Self Culture.
The intellcctunl and moral elevation of man
kind in general nnd the progress of the human
r.tce, however slighted formerly, and unknown
to laws nnd literature, nre ideas which have now
become familiar and prominent. Much indeed
t'mt is crude and much that is disorganizing and
ralically unsound, has been current in relation to
this subject, but is nevertheless one which has
engaged the attention, nnd tasked the powers of
considerate nnd well informed minds. It would
be ensy to show how seldom this tendency of
ihe ng to popular improvement escnpes men ol
acute observation, and how rarely overlooked by
any writers who addresse tho higher principles of
human nature. Ihe benevolent hone that man
may be improved; the profound see that he must
be that the progress ol political equably, and the
diffusion of knowledge are inconsistent with the
stability of governments and the prosperity of na
nous, on any oiner condition man mat oi uie tin
ted ellort ot the more eiihslitcneu classes to m
struct and elevate the mass.
A late writer observes, "that one of the very
mtercstincr features of our tunes is the multipli
cation of books, and their distribution through all
conditions of society.' At a small expense a
man mayjiiow possess himself of the most pre
cious treasures ol Lnclish literature. Hooks once
confined to a few by their costliness, are now ac
cessible to the multitude, and in this way a change
of habit is now going on in society, highly favor
able to the culture ol the people. Instead ol de
pending on casual rumor and loose conversation
for most of their knowledge & subjects of thoughts ;
instead of forming their judgments in crowds, and
receiving their chiet excitement Irom the voice
of neighbors, men are now learning to study and
reflect nloue, to follow out subjects continuously,
to determine lor themselves what shall engage
their minds, and call to their aid the knowledge,
original views, and reasonings of men of all couii'
tries and nges ; and the results must be a delih
erateness and extent ol information unknown in
former times. The diffusion of these silent teach
ers, hooks, through the community, is to work
greater effect than artillery, machinery or legisla
tion. Its pcacchil agency is to supersede stormy
revolutions. Ihe culture which is to spread
while an unspeakable good to individuals, is also
to become the stability ol nations.
I he common notion has been, that the mass
of the people need no other culture than is neces
sary lo lit them tor their various occupations in
lile ; and though this error is passing away, it is
far from exploded. But as a celebrated writer
has said, "The grou.ul of man's tu'tura lies in his
nature, not in his calling or trade. 1 lis powers
are to be unfolded on account ot their inherent
dignity, not their outward directors." He is to
be educated because he is a man, not because he
has a trade or or profession. A trade is not the
great end of his living, for his mind cannot be
hut up in it, his force of thought cannot be ex.'
haustcd on it. He has faculties to which it gives
no action, and deep wants it cannot supply. Man
is a greater name than President or King. Truth
and goodness are equally precious in whatever
phere they are lound. JMan has close, tender
and responsible connections with God and his fel-
ow creatures. He belongs to a home, a country, a
church, a race ; and is he to be cultivated lor a
trade ? Was he not sent into the world for great
works ? "What we want most in education," says
ate writer, " is to invest material things with
the attributes of mind, to connect the degrading
cares and sordid views that occupy the working
world, with the works oi thought; we want it
more and more to give interest to our familiar and
necessary occupations ; and we want it especially
that we may assist in redeeming the character ol
men from the mere animal, or mechanical state
into which from the nature and unrencv of their
occupations they nre in danger of falling."

Daily Rising.
The following testimony in favor of early rising,
and persuasion to the practice addressed to those
who are without experimental knowledge of its
advantages, is from the Cincinnati "Republican :
Who would not rise early on a beautiful mor-
ning Ueritlemen, awake irom your siumoers,
with the dawn mount your horses and ride out,
lo partake of the freshness of the atmosphere
limb the green hills that surround our noble city
-and while listening to the singing birds, watch
for coming day's bright orb. And you ladies !
rise early also and scent the morning air, which
like soothing balm, comes fresh from the brows
of the far olf mountains go forth at the hour
when the lark first awakes his song of joy to the
God of nature at the moment when the sun
leaves his bed of crimson and yellow, and the first
notes of the morning hymn float softly nnd beau
tifully through your open casements. Don your
lonnets, anil away to the green ileitis arouse
the soft perfumes from their couches on the bosoms
of the gay young flowers brush w ith your pretty
leel t he sparkling dews from the grass, lor soon
ey will lie exhaled by the seething rays ol the
noon-day sun refresh your lips with the pure
waters of the gliding streamlets. Would you nn
prove your mind, up will) the first beam of the
mom, and go lorth to scan the beauties ol nature
len m her sublimest mood. Arc you in ill-health
seek the "spirit-stirring air of the earliest dawn-
Would vou add arose to your beauty, court to
your cheek nature's rouge that is blent with the
morning winds.
Then tip, and away with the morning's dawn,
To gather sweet flowers in the dewy lawn.

New Haven, Ohio, Dec. 4th, 1838.
Gentlemen, Seeing the very high estimation held forth
by tho Agent in this section, nnd by those who had the op
portunity of trying Dr. Phelps Compound lomuto 1 ills
and being under belief of the firm having restored healthy
secretions of the glandular system more than once, by us
ing the Tomato Annie a3 a vcgctahlo i 1 have been induc
ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum
nal Intornultcnts, prevalent in tins section of the estates, 1
have no doubt Dr. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills will, in
a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oCal-
omej.. I believe that in diseased liver they are more
prompt in their elTect, and as efficient, as Calomel I have
tried them in various other diseases, as Jiheumatism, Dys
pepsia, Jaundice, &c., with the most happy effects. As
far as my knowledge extends, I have no hesitancy in rec
ommending them as a highly valuable Family Medicine.
iours respectfully,
THOMAS JOHNSTON.
From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated
New York, Nov. 6th, 1838.
To R. G. Fhelps, Dear Sir : I have used vour 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 tho public to bearing my testimony
in favor of this the world's invaluable medicine.
Six years since, I suffered from a malady, pronounced by
the concurrent opinion of a council of physicians, a chron
ic inflammation of 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 vour Pills, and learning something of their prop
erties and characters, and their rapidly increasing celebri
ty, I resolved on trying them, reeling 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, l purchased a Box ol the
Messrs. Sands, Druggists.corner William and Fullon 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, Billions Jljfectwns, ralpitatwn oj 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-
icino, with perfect success. I grant my permission to use
this as you please. Yours truly,
w. AH'.i, irj milium street.
From the Rev. I. A". Sprague, Pastor of the fourth
Congregational Church, llurtjord, Conn.
Dr. G. R. Phelps, j
Sir For several ver.rg pant 1 have lound it well to keep
in my family n bottle of castor oil nnd other simple medi
cines, and no doubt ther timely use has been greally bene
ficial in preserving our health, ror some tune 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 uiedicine, while others have been laid aside. I
prefer them formyseli and children, lo any other nicilicine
I have ever used to correct the irregularities of the stomach
and bowels. Yours, &c. I. N. SPtAGLE.
The following Letter, just received, illustrates in an in
teresting manner, the applicability of this medicine In Tu
mors and scrofulous swellings, nnd is another evidense of
its effects ns an alternative, in changing the action of tho
glandular and absorbent systems, and in renovating the
constitution impaired by protracted disease ; although in
ome cases it may take considerable time (as it does tor all
remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full
and complete effects.
