THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
'Tis an autumnal cvo the low winds, sighing
To wet, leaves, rustling as they hasten by;
The eddying gusts to tossing waves replying,
And ebon darkness filling all the sky ;
Tho moon, pale mistress, palled in solemn vapor,
Tha rack, swift, wandering through the void nbove,
As I, a dreamer by my lonely taper,
Send back to fueled hours tho plaint of love.
Blossoms of peace, once itiiny pathway springing.
Where have your brightness and your splendor gone ?
And Thou, whose voice came sweet to mo as singing,
What region holds thee, in the ast Unknown?
What star far brighter than the rest contains thee,
Beloved, (Departed empress of my heart.'
What bond of full beatitude enchains thee,
In realms unveiled by pen, or prophet's art?
Ah! loved and lost! in these autumnal hours,
When fairy colors duck tho paintod tree,
When (he vast woodlands seem a sea of flowers.
Oh! then my sou!, exulting, bounds to thee!
Spring, as to clasp thee yet in this existence,
1 Yet to behold thee at my lonely side.
But the fund vision my Its at once to distance,
And my sad heart gives echo she has died!
Yet! when the morning of her years was brightest,
That angol-preeence into dust went down; m
While yet with rosy dreams her rest was lightest,
Death for the olive,-wove tho cypress crow n;
Sleep which no waking knows, o'came her bosom,
Spared in her bower connubial one fair blossom
They bore her spirit to the upper skies.
There let me meet her, when, life's struggles over,
The pure in love and thought their faith renew;
Where Earth's forgiving and redeeming lover
Spreads out bis paradise to every view
Let the dim Autumn, with its leaves descending,
Howl on tho water's verge yet Spring will come :
So feed my soul, no more 'gahisl fate contending,
With all It loveth, shall regain its home.
The Hard Times
The attempts which have been made by the cot
tonocracy to counteract the laws of trade, by for
cing up the credit of slaveholding institutions and
the price- of slave-grown products, has recoiled
upon the commercial and manufacturing interests
of the county with a fearful and desolating crash
And the end is not yet. Our readers will remem
ber the crv that arose in it.j-i atrainst the ato
litionists in New York, Newark, Cincinnatti,
for jeoparding our 'Northern Trade.' Well, after
the suspension- in 1&37, the debtors in the free
States set themselves to work with such a fixed
determination to pay their debts, that in a year
their credit va3 quite restored, that they were
ready to do business again, on a safe system of
more limited trust, but the planters, who are
good paymasters in good times, have no notion of
putting themselves in any great inconvenience
about payments when money is scarce. And at
the same time, the high pressure system of slave
ry hardly allows a curtailment. And moreover,
it was intolerable to the dignity of planters, thai
their crops should have to fall in price, iust like
tha products of the "white slaves" of the North.
A 'combination wa3 thereupon formed, having the
threefold object, to keep up the price, of cotton, to
resuscitate and sustain the credit ot southern
banks and merchants, and to induce the slavehol
ders to turn their trade to Philadelphia, instead of
coming to be dunned lor their old debts m funv
York. The United States Bank of Pennsylvania,
was the " great legulator" to accomplish these
magnificent proposals: tne "Cotton Circulars
nnd conventions a part of tho machinery. Things
went on finely for a lima, Philadelphia- exulted in
her southern trade, and New York merchants
sighed over the deuline of that important branch
ot our city s commercial greatness. Jiut, one
day, it came out, that tha United States Bank
.could not psy their notes ; and when it "suspen
ded animation, so extensive had been its cornice
lions, that the whole commercial world has felt,
very much as a man would feel were n large tu
mor on his shoulder to be drawn out by the roots.
The effect on this city has been, to produce a
greater scarcity ot money, cc more extensive com
m rcial derangement, than was ever known before.
The banks here have wisely, resolved to continue
their payments, but have curtailed their discount
to a very low point, and hundreds of merchants
wno, a lew weeks ago, were in prosperous circnm
stances, ore now making enormous sacrifices to
obtain money. But the spirit of the slavehol-
nincr rlnmnn ia nnl vpt Immhlnrl. In llio tnidc.t of
the general dismay, no opportunity is lost sight of
(rt nnv cnnpl tn thn clnvonpi-ni.tr nr tr. men t m-wl
crush the friends of equal liberty. A curious il
lustration of this spirit may be seen in the follow
ing statement of proceedings-connected with the
meetings of the merchants to consult about the
means of relief.
On the 21th October there was a meeting of
merchants, manufacturers, and mechanics at the
City Hotel, said by the Commercial Advertiser to
be, probably, the largest of the class ever held
this city, to hear a report ofa committee appointed
at a previous meeting,
ng, to confer with the officers
. b . . .... I
of the Banks, to induce them to increase their dis
counts, and receive and pay bills of the Safety
Fund Banks of this State at par. The following
is the report, tiy Colonel Stone, and of the re
marks of one of tho speakers, with some cor
rections, and it is worthy of observation, that
although most of the daily papers published the'
rroeedinrs at leneth. not oneof them, the Com-
morcial Advertiser, excepted, d.aked to report the
allusion to the colored congregation as it was
made at the meeting. The reporters were afraid,
it would seem, that a correct report would scent of
abolition, and, therefore, suppressed the point or
the anecdote in obedience to the dark spirit of
slavery that has brooded over the commercial me-
lWr.T.Pwi T.mnrin nddrpn,! tho mootmo-nr.d
said he rose to submit a motion, that a committee be
nrwointed to make an immediate- renuest to the
Banks, that thev will take measures to hold n
Convention of all the banking institutions of the
city jo. the course of to-morrow, with a view of
Increasing their discounts, and affording such oth
er relief as the crisis requires. He said he had
listened with doep interest to the letters which had
been road to the meeting, convened to take into
consideration the unprecedented and alarming
state ol the mercantile community, nnu muu-.i
the tenor of many, of them was very gratifying
yet it was apparent that trie tone ot umeis tun.i
find llttln moppet of relief. One of the banks
tlmt hns-PYnrnssfid itself most willing and anxious
to do everv thinar it can for the mechanics, has
this day .refused to discount a note, with umjues
lirmnlile names, the president declaring to the np
plicant that it was their intention to discount small
notes onlv, nnd these to a limited amount.
lie wished, in the observations he might make, to
avoid saving anything that might appear like did;
lion to the banks, as lo the course of policy they
ought to pursue in this exigency. Jl was nppa
rent that great distress prevailed, and he did not
recco'lect, during a tnirty years business ns
merchant, n lime when this distress was so alarm
ing as at the present moment. He could well np
prcciate what the merchants who now throna
this hall, and had listened with such intense inter
est lo ihe answers which had been read lo thern
feci on, the rubject. lie sympathised with them
and felt sure that every person who heard him
that had flesh in his heart and notes to nay at the
bank's, had never known a more alarming moment
than the present. He said it wna in vain to
disguise it. The merchants, manufacturers and
mechanics of this city would not have assembled
there, had not extreme necessity drawn them to it
as it was well known that they will put forth ex
traordinary efforts to sustain their credit, and the
commercial interests of the city, and not assemble
to take measurs for relief until forced to do it by
unavoidable circumstances. He trusted it would
not be considered egotisiical or bonsling if lie
mentioned on that occasion when they had met
to compare feelings and speak of each others' sit
uation that one house, since the suspension
Dad redeemed asi.uuu.uuu ot its promises
bcsulc's paying m cash 81,500,000 to llie impor
ters m this city for new purchases not altogeth
er from its own strength, but nided by the gener
ous support ana sy mpatn v which it had received
Irom many whom he now saw in the hall. Loud
The letters that have been read this evening
some naugnty ana oincrs n
!,.-nl n r dinn n,1 IVT-
Tapnan, reminded him of
an anecdote which
tie would aslc permission to relate. 1 here was,
in Boston, a vjry respectable clergym in-t colored
man by the name of Paul (half suppressed
murmurs.) It was customary fur the clergymen
of the other churches in Boston, to preach an an
nua! sermon in that colored church, in rotation,
a ll,u t0 remarked that, you could always
tell who was the preacher and what his character,
by tho ,ext he- too!i for his discourse. For in-
stance, there was a preacher, a man of great self
consequence and rotundity ot person, who took
lor his text "Scr ranis obey your 'masters."
Great applause. And lheio-vns another mer
chant, in the same city, a mild, amiable man, who
when he preached to the congregation mvIio con-
considered themselves oppressed, took for.s text.
I cnlrecl. you as Lrctiren." Continued ap
plause. I Mr. i. said he w ished he could see in
all these letters from the banks the spirit of this
latter text, lie would conclude by repeatinc the
resolutions he had proposed, hoping that the same
committee would be appointed to wait on tho offi
cers of the banks, and request them to meet to
morrow evening, for the necessity admits of no tie-
lay, and procrastination is death lo the merchants
of New York. Cheers.
Mr. inppan said that, on the part of the house
of which lie was a member, he could say that
their indebtedness to the banks, at the present
moment, was not over twenty per cent, on what
it has averaged during the last two years although
they had lately made many nnd urgent applications
for accommodation and this, said he, is perhaps
the ca?e with many other merchant.-.
lie then moved the resolution, as given above
which was seconded by General Lloyd, and
It appears by the daily papers that, m publishing
an account of the meeting the editor of the Cour
ier and Enquirer the notorious James Watson
Webb, took occasion to vilily JUr. lappnn in his
paper in his characteristic, strain, and with the in
tention, as it afterwards appeared, to stir up popu
lar violence against hnn. His abuse and threats,
however, passed unheeded. At the adjourned
meeting ot the merchants, ;lr. 1 appan1 oiiered
a set ot resolutions, winch were unanimously
adopted. When he roje to speak, a considerable
number of persons, headed by a retanur of W ebb,
hissed, and continued to do so until the deafening
applause of a large majority of the audience, si
lenced them. On Mond.iy, James Watson Webb,
while forced lo insert th? resolutions, an.! make
mention of the "abolitionist" who offered them,
continued his strain of abuse, and hoped the re-j
eption Mr. lapnan met, at the meeting, would
be a lesson to him. It doubtless will. Both he,
and thousands besides, witnessed the total dL'-
kor,lfitre f political demagoge and purchased
in nttcmnting to prevent a merchant Irom
part in the proceedings tf a meeting of
merchants, because he is obnoxious to nro-slavery
men, among us, on 'he question of slavery. Mr
Webb had also the matchless impudence ti say,
a man cannot idently himsclt with incendiary ng
nation, and maintain his position ns a member of
the commercial community." He said this vears
ago, and is now forced to chronicle the falsifica
tion of his own prediction. We remember a nota-

Gentlemen, Seeing the vcrv high estimation held forth
by the Agent in this section, and by those who had the op
portunity of trving 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 loinalo Apple as a vegetable ; 1 have been induc
ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum
nal Intermiltcnls, prevalent in this section of the States, I
have no doubt Dr. Phelps Compound loniato Pills will, in
a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oj Cal.
om EI.. 1 believe that m diseased liver thov are more
prompt in their effect, and as efficient, as Calomel I have
tried them in various other diseases, as .Rheumatism, Dys
pepsia, Jaundice, &c, with tho moat happy efiects. As
far as my knowledge extends, I have no hesitancy in rec
ommending them as a highly valuable, ramily Medicine.
i ours respectfully,
From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated
New York, Nov. (ith, 1S:1S.
To R. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used vour Com
pound Tomato Pills, the past season, for the Liver com
plaint ; anu am happy to aud, with decided bcnelil : aim
therefore ta'ce great pleasure in recommending them ; as
well from a sense of gratitude to the benevolent Proprietor,
as with a view of serving tho cause of philanthropy ; from
a sense of duty I owe the public to bearing my testimony
in favor of this tho world's invaluable medicine.
Six years since, I suffered from a maladv, 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 lo a tolerable decree 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
tins dreadful malady the past summer ; when accidentally
I heard of vour Pills, and learning something of their prop
erties nnd 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 ufter ineffectually
and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professing a
specific remedy for this complaint, I purchased a box of tho
Messrs. bands, 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 tlieir henlittg afficacy and curative effects
and now that I have given them u thorough trial, can
cheerfully and unhesitatingly pronounce them the very
best remedy extant lor any derangement or aitection of the
Liver or Sjdecn, Millions Jtjjcctions, Palpitation of the
Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of its forms : also as a eood
family medicine, are the best with which I am acquainted.
At mv recommendation and solicitation many of my
fi iends nnd acquaintances have taken them as a family med
icine, with perfect success. I grant mv permission to use
this as you please. Vours truly,
ISAAC W. AVKiV, 179 William street.
From the Rev. I. Jf. Spraeuc, Pastor of the fourth
Congregational C hurch, Hartford, Conn.
Dr. O. . 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 ubc lias been greatly benc-
liciul in preserving our health, l or some time past I have
made use of vour Compound Tomato Pills, as a substitute
lor 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
I have ever used lo correct tho irregularities of the stomach
and bowels. Vours, &c. I. N. SPJJAGUE.
The following Letter, just received, illustrates in an in
teresting manner, the applicability of this medicine in Tu
mors and scrofulous swellings, and is another evidence of
Is effects as an alternative, in changing the action of the
glandular and absorbent systems, and in renovating the
constitution impaired by protracted disease ; although in
some cases it mav take considerable lime (as it does for nil
remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full
and complete cllccts.

Leonard, will show that the statement of Mr. Vrcdcnburgli
is entitled to our full confidence and is without exaggera

very remarkable one, and his statements may be relied up

CAU1ION. Ihe unprecedented popularity of these
Pills has induced several persons to prefix tho name of To
mato Pills to their various preparations, evidontly with the
intention of deceiving those enquiring for Phelps' Tomato
Pills. The Public cannot be too cautioiiB to avoid all these
anomalous ' Tomato Pills' and Extracts of Tomato,' nor
too particular to observe that the original and only genuine
compound u omato rills, are signed by the Proprietor.

PROSPECTUS OF A NEW PERIODICAL
OR MORAL EXPURGATOR, AND SCIEN
TIFIC AND LITERARY EXPOSITOR.
fT is in contemplation to commence tho issue ofa semi
monthly Periodical, upon the first of January, 1840,
with the foregoing unique cognomon, and which is design
ed to be entirely original, and to be presented to its patrons
in the state of a well executed royal octavo of sixteen double-column
page' amounting, in the year, to nearly one
thousand of ' ordinarily presented in the book form ;
constituting : volume which, it is intended shall be a :
useful as nmplc, and which is offered to subscribers, u;
the uncompensalory price of two dollars a yar, payable,
however, nnexceptioniibly in advance.
Tho object of the present enterprise is not to create a
substitute for those more elaborate, volumiuous and supe
rior Periodicals, with which persons who are able may be
abundantly supplied from abroad; but to afford a cheap
and convenient vehicle for recording and circulating the
roadable lucubrations of our sectional Literati; and which,,
wo hope, will be, the more abundantly elicited in the char
acter of manuscript contributions, by the proffered opp or
tunity for promulgation.
The character of the work is designed to bo neither tl c
ological, political, sectarian nor partial; and, therefore,
open lo universal, chaste discussion and recuperative irony.
Its columns are intended to be, mostly, appropriated to tho
investigation of physical and intellectual humanity; lo the
contemplation of man as a moral and social being, whelm
ed in responsibilities, ignorance and delinquency, witli
their, inevitably, disastrous consequences; to expose find
reform the ignorance, error and vices of society, by reflec
ting, convincingly, upon each, its deformity, hazards and
catastrophies, and to scourge or ridicule, both, fashionable
and unfashionable licentiousness and folley, out of credit
with their votaries, and out of humor with themselves: In
line, it is intended as an oracle, through which, truth may
be fearlessly uttered; and in whose responses, Virtue shall
find ample encouragement to emulation, while Vice shall
see Mene Tekel written on every wall of its habitation.
These are the self-cvidently , laudable objects, for the at
tainment of which our contemplated periodical is lo be in
stituted; and, for whose encouragement, we would, confi
dently, yet courteously, present our claim to public patron
age; not.however, without the provision of its being cheer
fully relinquished, whenever the value of the work shall
have failed to justify its continuance.
