THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
Written on receiving an elegant walking-cane, manufac
tared from portion of the wood-work of Pennsylvania
Hall, which the fire had spared.
BY JOHN O. WHITTIER.
Token of friendship true and tried,
From one whose fiery heart of youth
. With mine has beaten side by aide,
For Liberty and Truth;
With honest pride the gift I take
And prize it for the giver's sake,
But not alone because it (ells
Of generous hand and heart sincere,
Around that gift of friendship dwells
A memory doubly dear
Earth's noblest aim man's holiest thought,
With that memorial frail inwrought!
Pure thoughts and sweet like flowers unfold
And precious memories round it cling,
Even as the Prophet's rod of old
In beauty blossoming:
And buds of feeling pure and good
Spring from its cold unconscious wood.
Relic of Freedom's shrine a brand
Plucked from its burning! let it ba
Dear as a jewel from the hand
Of a lost friend to me!
Flower of a perished garland left.
Of lifj and beauty unbereft!
Oh! if the enthusiast pilgrim bear
A relic from the crumbling stone
On Caracella's marble stairs,
Or round the Pantheon
Or olive bough from some wild tree.
Hung over old Thermopyla.
If leaflets from some hero's tomb,
Or moss-wreath torn from ruins hoary,
Or flowers whose plundered sisters bloom
On fields renowned in story,
Or fragment from the Alhambra's crest,
Or the great rock by Druids blessed!
If Eiin's shamrock, greenly growing
Where Freedom led her stalwart kern.
Or Scotia's ' rough bur thistle' blowing
' On Bruce's Bannockburn
Or Runnymead's wild English rose,
Or lichen plucked from Sempach's snows!
If it be true that things like these
To heart and eye bright visions bring.
Shall not far holier memories
To this memorial cling ?
Which needs no mellowing mist of time
To hide the crimson stains of crime!
Wreck of a temple, unprofaned
Of courts where Peace with Freedom trod.
Lifting on high with hands unstained
Thanksgiving unto God:
Where Mercy's voice of love was pleading
For human hearts in bondage bleeding:
Where midst the sound of rushing feet
And curses on the night air flung,
That pleading voice rose calm and sweet
From woman's earnest tongue;
And Riot turned his scowling glance,
Awed, from her tranquil countenance!
That Temple now in ruin lies,
The fire-stain on its shattered wall.
And open to the changing skies
Its black and roofless hall
It stands before a Nation's sight
A grave-stone over buried Right!
But from that ruin, as of old,
The fire- scorched stones themselves arc cryinjr,
And from their ashes white and cold
lis timbers are replying!
A voice which Slavery cannot kill
Speaks from its crumbling arches still!
And e'en this relic from thy shrina
Oh, holy Freedom! hath tome
A potent power of voice and sign.
To testify of thee.
And as I grasp it now I feel
A stronger faith a warmer zeal.
Nor all unlike that mystic rod
Of old strcched o'er the Egyptian wave.
Which opened in the strength of God
A pathway for the slave,
It yet may point the bondman's way
And turn the spoiler from his prey !
Sixth month 28th, 1839.
From the Liberator.
C7 The friends of the slave generally will re
joice to hear of the safe arrival in England of
Wendell Philips and lady. Probably, no young
man has ever left this country with a farcer uuni-
ber of friends and admirers behind him, deeply so
licitous lor his safety ana wellare, than Mr. Phil
lips. The following letterjfrom his pen, announc-
ing hii arrival, contains much interesting informa
tion, and will be read with interest. We expeci
to receive other communications from him, as he
shall find opportunity to write. The health of
his lady, we are glad to hear, has been improved
by the voyage. May they, in due time, be res
tored to their home and ".friends in safety ! The
labors of Mr. Phillips are greatly needed in this
Commonwealth at the present time ; but he will
do much for the slave arid for humanity abroad.
It seems he has seen our beloved Thompson, -with
whom he had no personal acquaintance in this
countrv, and whose health, thousands will be
pleased to learn, is excellent, while he still eontin
ues.to be in labors most abundant. And what a
mighty and glorious enterprise is that which be
. has espoused.
Letter from Wendell Phillips.
London, July 31, 1839.
Sear Garrison :
On ' my arrival here, I delivered the letters I
brought, to all the individuals I could find, and
put the rest in the way of reaching their destina
tion. II. Martineau is in France ; so I lose the
pleasure of seeing her, for the present. Thomp
son I sought tit one or two p.nti-slaverv ' homes,
before I could find trace of him. At Alderman
bury, they could tell ine nothing of his whereabout
except that he was probably near uonaon. in
deed I found Aldermanbury silent, lonely, almost
deserted, exepnt nn occasional visit from its fcecre
tary, Mr. Stokes ; but the associations of the place
make me iirxrpr nwhile. looking nround on its well
filled presses" its long piles of documents, its busts
and books that scene oi so many sacriuces, coun
sels, nnd i-trufdes, whose resultc stretch over both
, o c m
hem is nheres and into ages to come.
I found news of our friend, at last at the Brit
ish India Society ; and on Wednesday called at
his rooms. He looks well, seems strong busy
deeply engaged, just setting off for Glasgow, to
address a meeting there on the first of August
ivhither he urged me to go with him ; but it was
mpossible much to rnv regret. We are afraid
o stay longer than absolutely necessary in thi:
damp, cold climate. He has been very kind in in
troducing me to persons and places.. I saw him
daily while he remained in town : vet, owing to
his multiplied engagements, correcting the proofs
ol the account ol the great India meeting, attend
ing committee consults, &c, we hed not a great
deal ol conversation together. I was glad howev
er, to be able to give him, what he had not seen, a
file of the Liberator since January. He left us on
Saturday, with repeated charges to give his best
love and kindest remembrance to you all. ' I re
member,' said he, 'every hole into which I crept
in America every man that 1 saw : they are a
dear.' ' Tell them lam not, perhaps able to judge
yet about the present differences. My heart is
knit to them all, but especially to the Massac hu
setts abolitionists. '
We went together to the House of Commons
I have heard some of the principal speakers
Hume, Russell, Spring, Rice, Tet'l, Lushington,
Sir James Graham. It was cheering to observe
the constant vigilance and e irnest attention on ev
ery subject which could effect, in the remotest de
gree, the slavery question ; and this from botl
sides of the House. That foul stain on the Ens-
lish government the apprenticing of the negroes
found in the captured slave ships (after which
they are usually lost sight of and frequently trier
ged in the slave population, especially in Cuba,)
was commented on and pledges given by the colo
nial Secretary, that it would be discontinued in
future. Lnshington introduced the subject of the
Coolies, it excited an animated discussion from
Whigs and Tories, and all the speakers demanded
ihat the contracts made by those unhappy men,
should be annulled by government, at any cost, and
the importation forbidden in future. O'Connell
was present awhile, but took no part in the debates.
owe to his kindness my second admission to the
Ho'ise. No one enters, even into the galleries,
without a permit from a member.
The friends here are deeply interested in the
great meeting of next year, fixed for 12th of June
1840. Dawes and his comrade, with myself, at
tended a meeting of the committee of the British
and Foreign A. S. Society, in which it was dis
cussed. Sturge presided. They were very anx
ious to have a large representation from America.
Thompson insists on your coming, accompanied
by many of the men and women of our ranks. A
large body of questions have been prepared, suit
ed to every quarter of the world where slavery ex
ists, or has just been abolished, which, if attended
to by th delegates, will place before the world h
more valuable bndy of information than we have
seen hitherto. The Committee voted a delegation
to wait on Daniel Webster, who is now in the

the investigation of the India question. Thomp
son is swallowed up in it. You will see by the
pamphlets, (a large stock of which are sent with
his and Miss Pcase'3 contribution to the Ladies'
Fair,) that it has the most direct bearing on A
merican slavery. It seems, from the testimony of
India Stockholders, India Governors, English cot
ton and sugar merchants that labor in India is less
than twopence per day ; and sugar may be placed
in the English market at eighteen pormds sterling
per ton while the American and West India is
selling at 42. Such is the testimony of the rich
Fleming of Glasgow. Cotton, also, can be affor
ded at three pennies a pound, while ours sells at
Gladstone, the great slaveholder, infamous for
having originated the importation of the Hill Coo
lies, confessed within a month, that his invest
ments in the East yielded double what they did in
the West Indies; and in his own words, 'It is all
up with slave labor.'
Brougham and O'Connell have entered the
field. At a great meeting here, they both spoke
with great eloquence. Brougham complimented
our friend Thompson more than ever. A host of
philanthropists are marshalled to claim for India
the liberty to loork for, it seems an oppressive
land-tax grinds them' to the dust. Yetnotw.ip.
standing thi?, the prices are as stated above. It
is whispered, alss, that several capitalists are era

I he first ship that enters a British harbor, freigh

her the death-warrant of slavery in the United
States and the Brazils !
They tell us of Eastern mngic, which chang

Perhaps we can unseal from their imprisonment,

here, and in the East, are aware that oppression
has driven her iron so deep into starved and plun
dered H indostan, that there may bo reaction at
any moment. One of the Governors observed, he
should not bo suprised ' to wake any morning, and
find the buble burst;' and I heard Sir Robert
Peel assert, in the House of Commons, that the
Mate of India was such as to authorize nn increase
of the military force. Thus every thing seems to
conspire to aid the movements of our friends by
directing public attention to the subject, by encour
aging India produce, and freeing it from excessive
taxation. And the national heart is stirred by the
prospect of being freed from dependence on for
eigners, for the greai staple of their manufactures.
God grant the plan may succeed ; and then that
large class of men, upon whom moral influence is
thrown away, will find Anti-Slavery staring from
their ledgers. We can hold our conventions in
deserted counting-houses, and our socieiy need
publish only the prices current.
We shall seethe South, ready now to nullify an
' unconstitutional and oppressive ' tariff! beg protec
tion for her great staple, to enable our manufac
turers to compete with England, and uphold the
slave-drivers, and, doubtless, we shall see the
North accede to the plan ! But protected or un
protected, before the sunny gales of that tropic,
, whence the merchants bring their spicy drngs,'
the fetters of the, slave will melt away.
Sturge thinks the late slaveholders in the.West
Indies require too much watching, to allow the
abolitionists to take their eyes from that spot. He
takes, therefore, no great part in the new move
ment. Scoble and Stuart are in the West Indies.
Their accounts are highly interesting, and very
favorable. We spent an evening with the Peases.
They remind us more of the American friends
than any others we see here.
By the bye, I met yesterday in the Strand, a
white and a colored man walking arm in arm, both
of highly respectable appearance, laughing merri
ly. Looking round, and seeing no appearancp of
a' mob, gave me the most realizing sense I have
hail, that I was no longer in America ! !
Remember me affectionately to all the friends
in that land ' which, homelings, from this little
world we name.' There are no meetings, after
all, like our Board meetings, and no gatherings
like the gatherings at 25, Cornhill. Remember
me to them all. I hope you have, by this time,
Ipctured through the whole valley of the Con
necticut. To Collins, trty fellow-laborer, I send
my best wishes. Ho needs no spur : on the con
trary, there are swords which wear out their scab
I feel that my letter tells you little. Yet we are
here at a most interesting crisis. At the moment
when the anti-slavery host seemed falling asun
der for want of some definite object, Providence
has onened a fresh field for exertion given a new
impulse to their zeal. The fountains of the great
moral deep are just breaking up. The dawn of
new crusade seems breaking over us. ine
friends of the slave have cheerfully buckled on
their new armor. They have not forgotten the

The Home of the Desolate.
"How many drink, the cup
Of baneful grief, or eat the bitter bread
Of misery ! Sore pierced by wintry winds,
How many sink into the sordid hut
Of cheerless poverty !"
It was night the storm howled sadly by and
the mother sat in silence by the scanty fire, that
warmed and faintly lighted the wretched dilapi
dated cottage, once in brighter days her happy
home ! She had divided to her starving babes
the little pittance of bread remaining to her, yet
scarcely sufficing to satisfy the mad cravings ol
hunger ! Little thought they that they claimed a
mother's all! She hushed their cries, soothed
their sorrows, covered them with her tattered
mantle, bade them a sad good night, and returned
to her sorrowful vigil.
The night wore away and still sat the mother
over the fading fire she could not replenish, wait-
nrr the coming of him whose returning footsteps
once caused a thrill of joy through her bosom, and
was hailed wiih boisterous glee by his little ones.
Once, he promised at the altar to love and cher-
h her, and nobly awhile did he redeem the
pledge. His cottage was the home of comfort,
and his wife and infants divided his love. Bui
ah ! how changed ! He had become a drunkard !
His business was neglected home was deserted

The Jewels... A Tradition of the Rabbins.
The celebrated teacher Rabbi Meir, sat during
the whole of one Sabbath day in the public school,
instructing the people. During his absence from
the house his two sons died, both of them of un
common beauty, and enlightened in the law. His
wifo bore them to her bed-chamber, laid them
upon the marriage lied, and spread a white cover
ing over their bodies. In the evening the Rab
bi Meir came home.
" Where are my two sons," he asked, " that 1
may give them my blessing ? I repeatedly looked
round the school, and I did not see them there."
She reached to him a goblet. He praised the
Lord at the going out of the Sabbath, drank, and

New Haven, Ohio, Dec. 4th. 1838.
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 Tomalo 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
have no doubt Dr. Phelps' Compound Tbmato Pills will, in
a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use aCal
omel. I believe that in diseased liver they are more
prompt in their tjffect, and as efficient, as Calomel I have
tried them in various other diseases, as -Rheumatism, 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.
From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated
New York, Nov. 6lh, 1838.
To R. 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 servine 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 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 fnr many months-;
and at length mainly restored to a tolerable degree ol
health, though not without an apprehension that I should
be similarly afflicted. My feais 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 celebri
ty, I resolved on trying them. Feeling as I 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,corner 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 ver"
best remedy extant for anv deranrrn, nr .irMinn rf ih.
I Liver or Spleen, Billious Affections. Palnitation of the
Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of its forms : also as a good
family medicine, are the best with which I am acquainted.
