ncd off to an incredible extent. The commun-der-in-cliief
of the United States forces in the
peninsula, (General Taylor,) was ill at the last
accouns, and the sickness was rather on the in

New Orleans Bee, November 29.
Outrage. We learn, savs the Mississippi
Southern Sun, that Cook and Carter, who were
confined in the jail of Scott county for murder,
has been taken by force from prison, by some ol
the citizens of that county, and hanged ! It will
bo recollected that they once made their escape
frpm that jail and were retaken. They were
brqught to Rankin county for trial, but were re
manded for want of testimony. Finding that a
criminal conviction could not be brought about,
the people took the law into their own hands. In
a civilized community such proceedings are a dis
grace where they areperpetratod. Ve are glad
to see the press of Mississippi denouncing the act
.as n heinous outrage, and urging the punishment
.of the offenders.

LETTER FROM FRANCE.
My clear Sir, While" France progresses in its
efforts for the abolition of Slavery, after the exam
ple of England, it is right to remind abolitioniots
by whom she has been pressed in that road ol tar
dy justice. It is necessary that the friends of hu-
manitv, the defenders of the African race, know,
beyond the seas, to tvhom the negroes of the
French colonics are indebted for the destruckon of
It is to M. Passy, President of the French So
ciety for abolition of slavery, late President of the
Chamber of Deputies, and present Minister of Fi
nance, arid certainly one of the most eminenUtatcs
man of the European cabinets. He was the first
who directed the attention of Parliament to this
question, nnd has supported it with his powerful
eloquence. He was the first to propose to make
free all newly born children ol staves, and thus to
stifle slavery in its birth, as the abolition of the
traffic in slavas has destroyed in its reproduction
(I' rench colonies.) Generous proposition, Mich
recently brought the hypocritical indignation of
a deputy, and advocate, paid by the colonists to
defend the morality of this nefarious traffic. But
thanks to M. Passy, who was supported by a few
energetic friends ol humanity, the whok? social
edifice of colonies erected by avarice andcupidity
wi 1 bo annihilated, lhat posterity may lind
them, in its remains, the name of one of the most
noble defenders of humanity, that it may shine in
its annals where are registered. the glorious names
ot Wilberforce and Clarkson.

complete emancipation to the negroes of our colo

gratitude the nnmcs of their benefactors on their

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 ns
n the Tomato Apple as a vegetable ; I havo been induc
ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum
nal Intermitterrls, prevalent in this section of lhe States, I
have 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 effect, 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 hesitaw.y in rec
ommending them as a highly valuable Family Medicine.
from a gentleman of his.h rcspectt 'fti ; tinted
New York, Nov'. 6th, 1838.
To B. G. Phe'ps, Dear Sir : I have uwd your Coin
pound Tomato Pills, the pst season, for the Liver com
plaint ; and am happy to add, with decided benefit : anp
therefore take great pleasure in recommending them ; as
well from a sense of gratitude to the benevolent Proprietor,
a3 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 the world's invaluable medicine.
Six ycrs since, 1 suffered from a malady, pronounced by
tiio 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 ol
health, though not without an apprehensiun that I should
be similarly afflicted. My fears have been but too well
confirmed hy a recurrence of nearly all the symptom 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 rcpug
nj co to resorting ajrufii to Calomel, and after ineffo-efuaUy
and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professtu? a
specific remedy for this compluint, I purchased a box of the
Messrs. Sands, Druggists, corner W illiam and Fulton streets
duly authorized agents ; they presenting me, to accompa
ny the box, a pamphlet containing a specification, direc
tions, I had not taken one box of them before 1 hap
pily experienced their healing efficacy and curative effecls J
and now that 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 cr Spleen, JlHlious Affections, Palpitation of the
Heart, cr Dyspepsia in any of its forms : a'so as a good
family medicine, are the best with which I am acquainted.
At my recommendation and solicitation many of my
friends and ac,ti2!nta;ices have taken them as a family med
icine, wiih perfect success. I grant my permission lo use
this as von please. Yours trulv,
ISAAC W. AVEJiY, 17!) William street.

Congregational Church, Hartford, Conn.
Dr. (!. V. Phelps,
Sir For several years past I have found it well to keep
in my family n bottle of castor oil and other simple medi
cines, and no doubt tlier timely use has been preatlv bene
ficial in preserving our health. For some time past I have
nmdu use of your Compound Tomato PiVJs, as a substitute
lor t'inse medicines, and have been so much pleased with
heir mild, yel elleetive operation, lhat they have become
our family medicine, while others havo been laid aside. I
prefer them for myself and children, to any other medicino
I have ever used tn correct the irrngulurities of the stomach
and bowels. Yours, &c. I. N. SI'ifAGUE.
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
its effects us an alternative, in changing the action of the
glandular and absorbent systems, and in renovating tho
constitution impaired by protracted disease ; although in
Eome casc3 it may lu' e considerable time (as it does for all
remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full
and complete effects.
