THE VOICE O F FREEDOM.
POETRY For the Voice of Freedom. Bro. Knatp: The following tribute of respect to the memory of my lamented companion, if you think proper, you may publish' some of the reader of the ' Voice' have expressed a desire to see it there. G. BECKLEV, Northfield, June 20, 1839. ' ' On the Death of Mis. Bcckley. How sweet her sleep! those lips still wear A ling'ring smile, of beauty rare, Even in death's embrace; The pale, fair hoods, as if at rest. So coldly fjlded o'er her breast. With more than living grace. Long had disease prey'd on that form, Yet calmly bow'd she 'neath the irtorm. Nor murmur'd at her fale; Even the mother's heart, snboVd To meet with Christian fortitude, Whatever migLt await, Tho' still affection strong must be, t, To cloud her hope's futurity Sometimes, with bitter tears, In thinking of her lov'd ones, left So early, of her care bereft, To guide their tender years. Love for her husband, too, night cling Sometimes, to droop the spirit's wing. And win it back ta earth; - Vet wrong, it were, that love to Mnme, For who may dare to say, the fluue Had not in Heav'n its birth ? No more shall pain that bosom heave, - - Nor soriow the freed spirit grieve. Which now hath left its cell : And joy supreme, it was to her That meek and trusting worshipper. To bid earth's scenes farewell. Altho' affection oft will sigh Warm, gushing tears oft dim the eye, For that dear, cherish 'd one, Rather than wish her here again. Subject to agoni.ing pain, Joy, that her task is done! And thon, to whom she was most denr. Art like some tree, which lightnings sere. Blighting its tow'ring pride; But 'round that tree the ivy clings Sweetly, in vernant beauty, springs The leafless boughs to hide. And th as, thy children, shall to thee. Affection's lovely ivy be, Wreathing around thy heart ; Softly, shall steal thy thoughts away From brooding o'er this sleeping clay New charms to life impart. Perhaps, that some young lace, may wear Its mother's lineaments, so iir; Possess her gentle mind And as each dawning grace you view, A voice as swee-t as tilling dew, Shall whisper, " be resign'd." Tho cloth'd to thee, in sombre hues, Are nature's most delightful views. And summer mocks thy woe-; In bowers where she hath never rov'd, 'Mid scenes which she hath never lov'd. Bright hours thou yet may'st know. While mem'ry of the sainted dead Its hallow'd influence shall shed, Inspiring a soft calm; And thoughts which now but pierce the soul. Shall o'er it win a sweet control, Breathing a fragrant bulm. Thine is the task to soothe the heart, And consolation rich impart, Tho' grief reign there alone. For others, belter canst thou feel Than if the keenly barbed steel Had never picre'd thine own. And thou hast hopes, high hopes, again Of meeting her, where seraphs reign,. In realms unknown to care: That shall sustain thee, to resign Thine almost worship'd Caroline, 'Till reunited there. T. P. II. Tucker. Northfield, June, 1839. MISCELLANEOUS From the Southern Rose. Piety at Home,. mat Dome is, in every sense, tne most pious home where there is peace, good will, contentment and innocent iov ; where-there are brip,hi faces and kind words, and where the house is notdivi ded against itself! In that home-circle ..where there is no bitterness of feclintr cherished where no harsh words are uttered, of recrimination,' un just anq;er, or intemperate reproof where purity is cultivated in thought, word, and deed where there is the sympathy which reioices with them that do rejoice, and weens with them that weep and where all in the true spirit of love exhort each other daily, no less' by example than by kind speech there we may behold the true . and per iect piety at home. The benefit, arismar from the observance of this duty, is of great and peculiar importance. There is no foundation for religious feeling and action more firm and sure, than, this- It is at home that the heart is formed ; foe the inward feelings depend most on thoughts and actions which are unrestrained ; and is it not the heart which reli gton chiefly and always asks?. It is at home, toa, that we may best cultivate consciousness in per forming duties, the neglect of which we- have- no occason to dread will be puolicly exposed, butwhfch, if heededt must be so at the simple dictates)! one s conscience. " Here, also, may the affections be best eherLshed, Tor it they exist at all, here they will be disinter ested. And at Home is the place to form one's principles. It is easy to act on feigned motives, in the sight of others, but the difficulty and nec essary thing for a good man, is to net on principle invariably, and in private, as well as in public. It is something more than good nature, or kind ness simply, to overcome the daily trials upon one's temper, to submit with willingness to the many little self-sacrifices, so needful to the comfort of social life, and to profit by the thousand oppor tunities there are of being considerate and useful. This is no more the triumph of affection than it is of principle. . ' Piety at homt is, indeed, then, the groundwork of all religious duty ; for it i;s this which may plant deeply the seeds of wider feelings, and more extended action. The love and gratitude we feel towards an earthly parent are helps to the great duty of love and gratitude to the Almighty Father of all. Our good will and kindnesss towards our kindred, is the best nnd sincerest beginning to a sympathy with the whole human race. And this is the true and just sense of the saying that ' Char ity' (that is, the true benevolent feeling) begins at home. Ao-ahi. When holy habits of heart nnd life o-row up in private they have moral associations connected with them which almost ensure their preservation for the future. When we consider the images of purity, and love, and truth, and con tent, which cluster around the pious household, can it be wondered at that we should recur to the duties which rendered us so happy ! It is the want of the calm happiness of a cheerful fireside which has left many hearts to be swallowed up in vain amusements and dangerous excitements. And when there is no thought of a sympathising and happy home to win one from temptations, his heart and principles arc at the mercy ofevery vain show, and every artful adviser, and of every bad companion, and ol every ialse triend. Hut it is not so with him, who has learned to shov nnd has found piety at home. He may "go into strange city and meet with its allurements, but the love of his own hearth saves nun Irom giving hi affections elsewhere. The words of the profane, and scornful, and profligate, sound upon his ears but the voice of holy purity is heard by him the louder and sweeter from his own distant dwelling, He meets in the broad world with vice and deceit in every corner, and at first he may distrust and weep lor human nnture, and may be tempted to fall in with the evil of the mass. But he soon is taught that it is man's own doing which has so debased him, and so shrouded the brightness of his nature, ivhen he reflects on the unperverted hearts lie lias lelt beninij, ana lrom tne contrast, lie loves purity and virtue all the more. His soul may sink within him at seeing the vain chases ot man kind after happiness, and ho would say, all is van. ity, uiu not ins memory picture lortn tne nappy contentment of his own home. Elsewhere, he may be the victim of injury, and the dupe ofinsin ecrity, and the object of unjust suspicion, but there at least, he is sure of willing kindness of finding truth and of being beloved. The rememberance therefore of a home of piety is a no slight defence for our vir'ue, no surer a refuge in the season of darkness and the storm than the shelter of affection, and the strong hold of principle. It will save one from thirst for excite ment, which so often takes the unrsflecting from from the common dnties and innocent happiness of life, and leads them into temptation, and from that restless spirit, which, wishing it knows not what, hurries so many into reckless courses and it can give a peace, which as long as the worldly spirit is excluded from the heart, the broad world with all its attractions of pleasure ean never take away. Nor is this all. Consider the power of such a home to reclaim, in case it have not preserved the heart. In one point of view, moral danger is next to hopelessness. It is so, when one lias yielded to it deliberately having first given up better thoughts and rememberanccs. But it is"" not so in the case of one who in an evil hour has been' taken unawares. There is hope here. For the time m sell-examination will come, and he will see ! that he is not what he should be, and there will be sorrow in his heart, and this may work repent ance. ' ' , At such a moment of our lives, how precious would be the remembrance of one's first piety at home I Ihe associations of purer days they only promise of one's youth the fond dependance of those we love upon our love, and respect, and gratitude to them the hope which we know they cherish ol hearing our praises the chilling lear lest they should be disappointed the bare fancy of bringing gray hairs with sorrow to the grave of contaminating the good name of one's kin dred, and laying disgrace at the door where slan der never dared to pause these, would be no vain counsels. Could one, amidst such appeals, go on the evil course he had begun reckless how h turned the praise of those who were near and dear to him, into the bitterest reproach ; or careless how lie darkened with grief the eager counten ances that are looking with joyful hope for tidings of his success and honor ; trifling at the thought ol making the heart of affection heavy; or un moved at bringing misery and shame upon hi: once honored and-happy dwelling ? fe-' .tv 4fe "M" 4( fc In a word', there is a power in the associations that are connected in our mind with a well loved home, which is sufficient to guard, to reprove and stimulate the heart and hie, preserving and enforc ing the persuasions of memory and the. warnings of conscience. But this influence, (which after all may be a wise instinct) becomes doubly itrong anu permanent, when made virtuous and sacred, as it is by piety -at home. It was the thanksgiving of a holy man of old to God, ' that He had laid up for aim a. dioelUux of health. Hut how much more to be prized is a dwelling of piety ! Fos this will sweeten health, and highten joy, and soften sickness, and soothe sorrow. Health alone, may take us away from the peace of home, ihUfc the delusions wilb which active life is filled. But' the dwelling of vietv. whether we are there or absent from it, will have dhenished and will still cherish our native purity. Hearth alone, may make its vigor a plea for plung ing into guilt. But piety ,'whether weak or strong, will preserve or integrity, or reclaim our hearts. Health must at lnt fail. But by this piety we are saved at the closing hour of life from the ad ded pangs of an evil conscience, and lrom sin, whrcfa is the sting of death. - 1-'-t ' Let the obiect of our prayers, be the dwelling of piety. May it be the reason of bar' present and future thanksgiving. And, above all things, never doubt that the house of domestic virtue is a house of God and a gate to Heaven. W. V. T. Savannah, April 11th, 1830. . ed to teach the free school of Colchester, Conn. and was subsequently, it is believed, graduated at Dartmouth College, after which he taught in Bos ton, lrom Boston he went to llayti, where he was employed by Christophe, " the first crowned monarch of the new world," as his agent, to irn prove the state of education in his dominions, and was sent to Europe to procure means ofinstruc tion. In England he was treated as minister plenipotentiary, and his cognomen being mistaken for his title, he was conversant with the nobility, and admitted into the society ol the King, and quite at home at the house of Sir Joseph Banks, then President of the Royal Society. From some cause or other, his conduct in Europe did not please his royal master, and on his return home, he was dismissed from his employment. After remaining a short time in Hayti he return ed to this country, studied divinity, and at one time officiated in a church in Philadelphia. : . How lono he remained here the writer knows not but he removed hence to Hayti again, nnd at the time of his death was attorney general of the government. As he was an extraordinary man, it is hoped this notice of his death may be the means of calling forth farther particulars respect ing him. One anecdote of Prince we are enabled to give, which is both characteristic and amusing. While residing at Boston, before he left this- country, he was a good deal noticed by several ot tne prmei pal families in that city on account of his intelli gence and good conduct their treatment of him being of the character best signified by the word patronizing. For instance, they would lend him books, advise and assist him on occasions of emer gency, &c ; and one lady in particular who took much interest in his welfare, would occasional), when he called upon her at her breakfast hour, as was sometimes the case, give him a cup of cof fee, which he would drink standing behind her chair. This lady afterwards visited England, at the time when Prince was running his round of " lioiization" there ; and one morning he called upon her while at breakfast. She had heard something of his newly acquired greatness, and felt embarrassed in deciding how to treat him. The " standing cup,"which she had been accus tomed to proffer him, might not now be exactly the kind ofcourtesy he would expect and she was not quite prepared to give him a seat at her table, and place him on the looting ol an equal. In this dilemna, it occured to her that the best way would be, to put her civilly in such a shape as would throw the solution of the difficulty on him trusting-that his good sense, and recollec tion of the past would relieve her from embarrass ment. She therefore asked him, not to sit down and take breakfast with her, but whether he had breakfasted. " Ihanlc you, iUadam, was fnnce s answer, given with all the ease and indifference of an ac complished " lion" " Thank you madam, I am going to breakfast with the Prince liegent, at Carlton House. iV. Y. Commercial. Crows can be caught intoxicated but once, The 'following amusing article is extracted from the Peori (Illinois) Register. "Colonel B. has one of the best farms on the Illin ois river. About one hundred acres of it is now cov ered with waving corn. -When it hrst come up in the spring, the crows seemed determined on its entire destruction. When one was killed, it seem ed as though a dozen came to its funeral. And though the sharp crack of the rifle ofren drove them away, they always returned with its e cho. The Colonel at length became weary of throw ing grass, and resolved on trying the virtue of stones. He sent to the druggist tor a gallon ol alcohol, in which he soaked a few quarts of corn, and scattered it over his field. The black legs came and partook with their usual relish ; and, as usual they were soon pretty well corned ; and such a cooing and cackling such a struling and staggering! The scene was like but I will make no invidious comparison yet it was very much like - When the boys attempted to catch them, they were not a little amused at their staggering gait, and their zigzag course through the air. At length they gained the woods, and there beitig join ed by a new recruit, which happened to be sober, they united at the top of their voices, in haw, haw, hawing and shouting the praise or curse ot alco hol ; it was difficult to tell which, as they rattled away without rhyme or reason, so very much the Colonel saved his corn. As soon as they became sober, they set their faces steadfastly against alcohol. Not another kernel would they touch in his field, lest it should contain the accurs ed thing, while they went and pulled up corn for his neighbors.

FHELl'S' COMPOUND PILL ENTIRELY VEGETABLE, A new and valuable remedy for nil diseases arising from impurities of the blood, Morbid Secretions of the Liver and Stomach, Also, a subsistute for CALOMEL, as a CATHARTIC in FEVERS, and all Dillious diseases, and for ordinary Family Physic. This popular Medicine which has received such general approbation as a remedy for Dyspepsia, Billious and Acid Stomachs, Jaundice, Heartburn, Costineness, Head ache &c. &c, and which is now prescribed by many of the most respectable Physicians, is for sale by authorized Agents in most of the towns in the United States, and at wholesale by the Proprietors, Hartford, Conn. A few only of the latest certificates can be inserted here, for numerous others see large pamphlets just published. 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. Pbelps' 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 a a vogetable ; I have been induc ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum nal Intermitlents, prevalent in this section of the States, I have no doubt Dr. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills will, in a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oCal 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 tho 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 : an therefore take great pleasure in recommending litem 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 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 for manv months ; and at leneth mainlv restored to a tolerable degree of health, though not without an apprehension that I should be similarly afflicted, ttly fears have been but too well confirmed hv 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 celcbn tv, I resolved on trying them. Feeling as I did, a repugn nance to resorting again to Calomel, and after ineffectually and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professing specific remedy for this complaint, I purchased a box of th 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- oily 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 bent remedy extant for any derangement or affection of th Liver or Siilern, Billion Jljtections, Palpitation oj th Heart, or Dyspepxia in any of its forms : also as a good family medicine, are the best with which 1 am acquainted At mv recommendation and solicitation many ot m friends and acquaintances have ta'ton them as nfamily med icine, with perfect success. I grant my permission to use this as you please. Yours truly, ISAAC W. AVE BY, 179 William street May 4, 1839.

Mr. Saunders was one of the best educated colored men ever reared in this country, He was born in hetford, Vermont, and recieved a good English education. About ;he year 1800 ho was employ- Early impressions. What is the object of ed ucation. ? .To form the character. How is this to be done ? Not by lessons, but principally through the influence of example and circumstance and situation. How soon is the child, exposeu to tnese influences? Fiom the moment it opens its eyes and feels the pressure to its mother s bosom ; lrom the hour that it becomes capable of noticing what nasses around it, and knowing the difference of .i. r .1 n ri .l one tmn2 irom anotner. ao poweriui are tne gradual and unnoticed influences of these early months, that the infant, if indulged and humored may grow into a petty tyrant at ten months old ; and tottle about at two years a selfish, discontent ed, irritable thing, that every one but the mother turns from with disgust. During this period ev ery human being is making his first observations, and acquiring his first experience ; passes his ear ly judgments, forms opinions, acquires habits. Ihey may be ingrained into the character lor lile. Some right and some wrong notions may take such firm hold, and some impressions, cood or" bad, may sink so deep, as to be with scarcely any force eradicated. There is no doubt that many of those incurable crookednesses of disposition, which we attribute to nature, would bo found, if they could be traced, to have originated in the ear ly circumstances of life. Just as a deformed and stunted tree is so, not from any natural perversity of the seed from which it sprung, but from the circumstances of the soil and situation where it grew'.
