TUB VOICE OF FREEDOM,
POETRY
The following lines are from the pen of our esteemed
friend John Scoble of England. El.
From the Liberator.
LINES,
Addressed to Mrs. S , in England, by her hus
band, from Demerara, in the year J 836.
Thy memory, like music, steal
Into my heart, and there reveals
Within its dearest, chief recess,
Thine image in its loveliness:
Such as thou wert in virgin prime,
Ere tnuch'd by sorrow or by time;
Model of beauty and of grace,
With Heaven's own imprint on thy face,
Severe in sanctity and truth,
For piety had hallowed youth;
Yet gentle, placable, and mild
In temper as a little child.
Fragrent as flowers wert thou to me,
And wilt, dear love, forever be.
But what though time has touch'd thy brow,
And dimm'd the lustre of its snow;
But what though Sorrow's pointed dart,
Hath sometimes smote thy gentle heart;
Vet thou't more beautiful to me
Than in thy youthful majesty;
Yet thou't more dear than in the hour
When first I felt thy magic power,
I see thee now fill up thy place,
With all a wife's a matron's grace,
With all a Christian's zeal and care
Example lovely as 'tis rare:
And my heart blesseth thee the while
I mars, thy freedom from all guile:
O, may thy children ever prove
As greatly good as thou, my love! S,
TO THE SAME,
On the return of their fourteenth wedding-day in 1836.
Life were a dark and weary pilgrimage,
Uncheer'd, uublest by woman's radiant smile:
'Tis here its toil and tedium to beguile,
And shed a lustre over youth and age.
A woman's love how tender and how do.ir:!
A womun's love how faithful and sincere!
Helpmeet for man, unmurmuring, she bears
His waywardness and folly, and with tears
And looks, more eloquent than speech, reprovos,
Refines and elevates the man she loves!
O best of women! much to thee I owe
A home of bliss, and warm affection's glow;
And, as the treasures of thy heart are mine,
The tribute of my dearest love be thine. S.
AUTUMN.
Sweet Sabbath of the year, ,
When evening lights decay,.
Thy parting steps, methinksl hear,
Steal from the world away.
Along the sunset skies
Their glories melt in shado
And the things we fondly prize,
Seem lovelier as they fade.?
A deep and crimson streak,
The dying leaves disclose; -As
on consumption's waning chee';,.
'Mid ruin, blooms the rose.
Thy sear each vision brings,.
Of beauty in decay ;
Of fair and early faded things,.
Too exquiset to stay;
Of joys that come no more;
Of flowers whose bloom is fled."
Of farewells wept upon the shore;
Of friends estranged or dead ;
Of all that now may seem,.
To memory's teariul eye,'.
The vanish 'd beauty of a dreamy.
O'er which I gaze and sigh.
MISCELLANEOUS
Webster in England.
Our towering countryman is now at the world's
capital and centre, free there alike from the as
saults and flatteries of base party, and' free- from
its operations in his own lofty spirit.. He can act
himself to some extent in London, and they can
give him grand occasion. They have not seen a
bigger man there since the Norman ' conquest, to
go back no farther. He has given them, one
slighttaste of his oratory, at the agricultural dinner,
where 3000 farmers of England sat down together
in the old hall of Oxford. Exter Hall," however;
is the place for him to speak, or would be, if he
were only an abolitionist. If he had only the soul
of liberty in him, there would be the place for him
to eclipse even Brougham, Thompson and Q'Con-
nell, for we feel that? in strength and msjesty of
speecn, our great orator could go beyond them all.
But this he lacks. Politics has laid her paralyz
ing hands upon his heart. He
" Born for the Universe narrowed his mind;
And to parly gave up, what was meant for mankind."
Webster is not a narrow pa rtizan. Far from it.
But he is a statesman and a patriot, and that nar
rows down his eagle spirit to politics and" to coun
try. He cannot say with Garrison, " my coun
try is the world, my countrymen are all mankind."
ebster can speak gloriously on any other sub
juct but emancipation. On that, which is now
the paramount theme among the nations, he is
doomed to utter silence. He has had mighty oc
casions, but let them slip. Once in Faneuil Hall,
when old Mr. Harrison Otis tore down the flagol
humanity where it hung floating abroad over lib
c'ty'sraalPi Webster might have rushed in there
then, like the Black Knight at the passage of Arms
at Ashby; and restored it to its place.. But he
was either false on tho question,, or mistook the
magnitude of the occasion.. Again, when Calr
hour) insulted the world and liberty, by his tyrant
resolution! in that prostituted Senate hall'.. Then
Webster should have spoken out for emancipation.
Ki4ho thought the time had not come, or that the
negro wa.s not a man. Mistaken statesman. It
was the tjdfl tine of his history, and he should have
takn it then "at the flood." It would have "led" him
" on to" glory and immortality, if not to " fortune."
He temporized and was silent, Again he should
hart burst forth, for indignation, if nothing high
er, when Presto'i threatened to assasinate the old
riffht ofsneeeh before the Senate and the country
both of whom sympathize in the threat which made
it meet that Webster should nonce n on me jm,
fmlmrle him to sneak. Now
nnothpr occasion oifcrs. What the world woul
reckon an occasion, and perhaps, for a politician
u ; nn Hp nnver can be an abolitionist. Iiu
ho mnv vet. honorably perhaps with the worl
tnkp sides, at this late day and in England, with
universal emancipation. He is in an anti-slavery
rouotrr away from the spurious reoublic amon
Englishmen. He breathes the atmosphere that
surrounds O'Connell and Thompson, and that vi
brutes with their agitations for liberty. He is
the neigborhood of Brougham and E.xter Hall.
He is hors du combat in the presidential! aren
here, and may see expediency in starting anew
view of the future political strength of anti-slave
ry among his countrymen. How far ahca.tr tha
inav lie, before it shall take a controlling hold of
the land, in his ken, we cannot conjecture, thougl:
he once remarked, wo were told, that the election
of the country would one day and shortly be d
termined by it. If the Presidency were in th
gift ofanti-sla very, & approval with the " property
and standing of the conntry were in its gilt also
(for Webster would not intrigue lor office merely
like Van Burcn or Clay) it would tempt him to
spread his sail to our breezes, and bravely would
he have sailed before them, lor he was bom and
and bred a freeman, and the speech of anti-slave
ry would mrghtily have become his tongue
Inow, at any rate, is his occasion, if ever, now jn
England, where the assembled world would hea
lim. Oh, that he were so circumstanced that.he
could speak for liltrlv ! How it would enflam
O'Connell, to hear him ! and the terrible Brough
am, iiow he would labor to surpass hnnsell to re
lain his supremacy in the eyes of Europe, whic
would be shaken, were W ebster to speak there, i
ns illimitable strength. And the gallant and gor
jeous young Ihompson, he would blaze with en
kindled glory, till the stately American, who knew
lam not here, should darken with shame
his country s mlamy, and deeply reproach him
self, tuat he had not recognised, defended and hon
ored the perilous young stranger in his own land
but it may not be. Webster is a. statesman. II
never can trend the platform of philanthropy. I
is unbecoming a statesman to feel and have sym
paihy. He is too wissand grave to experience ex
citement, unless perhaps the sublime excitement
of politics. Agitation is beneath him, all but ag
ilation of contested election, of the game' for pow
er. Herald of Ircedom.
From the Marion (Ohio) Visiter.
A Disgraceful Occurrence. Tuesday morn
ing last presented a scene of confusion and excite
mcnt never before witnessed in our peacful village
It appears that a negro, well known by our citizens
by the name of Hill, was some tune since taken
up as a runaway slave from Virginia, and lodged
in the jail of this county for trial. On Monday
the day for his trial, we discovered an unusua
number of persons assembled to hear the result
the house was crowded to overflowing. The
witnesses were examined, and counsel heard : the
Judge, however, reserved his decision till the fol
lowing morning.
It being the first day of the sitting of the Court
of Common Pleas, a great mass ot people was as
sembled. At ten o clock, A. the court was
called (the house was literally crowded,) to hear
the decision of the Judge, which occupied at least
40 minutes in delivering, during which, the great
est order prevailed ; but as soon as the Hon. O,
Bowen had finished by declaring the prisoner free
all was conlusion, riot and disorder. As soon as
the decision was ended the pretended owners seiz
ed the prisoner : the bystanders resisted and en
deavored to rescue him, declaring him to be free,
and desiring them to let him run at large, but the
Virginians still maintained their position by force,
and presented pistols, bowie knives, dirks, &c
threatening the lives of all them who would lay
hands on them or the negro, and all this in open
court. Uur citnzens and friends ot the couuty
stood out in. defence of our trampled and insulted
laws which were thus set at defiance.
In this scene of confusion the negro was taken
lown stairs nnd dragged by his captors through
the streets. Those who forced him onward were
armed with pistols, bowie unives and dagc
At this unusual and horrible sight, the populace
became enraged and attacked them with stones
and whatever missies they could get hold of ;
they at length succeeded in getting him into one
of our justice's offices, and there guarded him (as
is stated) for a new trial. Jielore the door ol the
office the excited multitude assembled, demanding
justice and the negro, but all of no avail, the en
trance was guarded with pistols aud bowie knives.
At this time the sheriff arrived and begged to be
heard, and requested the mob to be dispersed, but
this was also ol no etlect. At length the cry lor
the public arms Was made, the nrsennl broken
open, and-the arms omaineu, wnicn presented n
horrible spectacle, iho excited populace under
arms still demanding entrance, which was refused.
All the otders of the sheriff and court to restore
Order seemed to be of no effect. Pistols and bow
ie knives were all the law. .
At lenrrlh one of the associate Judges, (Judge
Anderson) left the bench, aud in defiance of cock
ed pistolsnnd flashing steel, forced his way into
the office, after which others followed,, and burst
open the back door, by which mean3 the negro
made his escape. He had run but a short distance,
when he was overtaken by his pursuer who threat
ened with presented pistol, to shoot him if he did
not stop. At this time a number ot the enraged
multitude fell upon the persuer and knocked him
own ; another who came to his assistance shared
the same fate. The confusion continued until or
ders were given to arrest the rioters. During the
arrest of the rioters, the negro made his escape
and has not since been heard of.
We would further remark that the rioters (we
believe eicht in unmher) were the same day ar
rested, and recognized to appear from day to day,
under bonds of $600 each.
" Ruin and Starvation!"
The following, from the British Emancipator,
tells its own story.
Every fact which presents itself in relation to
the great experiment of negro liberty goes to. con-
radict and stupily the passionate denunciations of
the planters- Five months of the year 1938 were
passed in freedom ; and we have heard nothing
but loud and incessant outcries of deficient labor,
neglected cultivation, ruined estntcs, nnd beggard
proprietors. " 1 he official returns will show, '
said these angry gentlemen, " the justice of our
complaints." Very well. The official returns
for 183S are made out, and we find in the Colo-
nial Gazette the following abstract from them, so
far as relates to the staple imports from the West
India and Mauritas in 1S38, as compared with the

.Our contemporary observes very justly, that
"there is nothing of these quanties that would in
dicate the progress ofa great social change affect
ing the relative condition of employers and labor
ers." On the contrary, from all that appears here,
it might be supposed that the negroes were" still
apprentices, or even slaves. But most especially
it is to be observed that, in the funny island of
Jamaica, the cultivators of which seem to go by
ihe rule of contrary, and to bellow out their com
plaints just in proportion to their good fortune,
the suar exported in 1S38, exceeds, by nearly
150,000 cwt., the export of 1S37 ! What a vol
ume of commendation is this for the system of
free labor, and the character of ihe emancipated
peasantry !

The African Prisoners,
We are inclined to treat their case as an nboli-
tionist, rather lhan as an inquirer into their liabil-
ties under the rules and regulations of this slave-
holding country called laws. As an abolitionist
we say, defying contradiction, that they ought not
or a moment to be kept under duress. 1 he whole
proceedure against them from king Sharka down
ihrough the dignitaries of Cuba to Andrew Sharka
Judson is all of a piece. It is pro-slavery violence
all of it. This is what we lake notice of. We
shall not trouble ourselves or our readers to so

ing on the case ef these imprisoned men. If they
would treat them as they do white men,' we don't

important and no more so, lhan any other equal
number of human beings, of the great multicolor-

hand slavery has in disposing of them, and to make
what use we can of the whole occurrence against
the infernal institution of slaveholding. And tho'
we feel no small interest in the heroic Cingues,
we don't claim that he have his life and his rights
merely because he is a hero or a master spirit, but
because he is a man. Had he been ever so cow
ardly or ever so imbecile in mind or spirit, we
should be equally strenuous and more so in his be-
hali, for it is the poor and feeble brethren of our
race of whose rights we ought to be most tender.
We are aware that a good deal of enthusiasm
displayed by the pro-slavery press is based upon
any thing rather than justice and a love of the
right. It forgets Cingues' color in admiration of

W ho shall kindle at the wrongs of Cingues 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 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 Intermittent, prevalent in this section of the States, I
have no doubt Dr. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills wiH, in
a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oCal-
omki.. 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 .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.
Yours respectfully,
THOMAS JOHNSTON.
From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated
New York, Nov. 6th, 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 serving the cause of philanthropy ; from
a sense of duty I owe tho public to bearing my testimony
in favor of this-'-tlie 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 j
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 celebri
ty, I resolved on trying them. Feeling as I did, a repug
nance to resorting again to Calomel, and after ineffectually
and unsuccesslully trying otner medicines prolessing a
specific remedy for this complaint, I purchased a box of the
Messrs. bands, Uruegists,corner William and rulton 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, Bullous Affections, Palpitation of the
Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of it tnrnm : 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 my permission to use
this as you please. lours trulv,

Congregational Church, Hartford, Conn.
Dr. G. R. 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 thcr timely use has been greatly bene
ficial in preserving our health. For some time past I 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
prrfor thain for myself and children, to any other medicine
I have ever used to correct the irregularities of the stomach
