Keepp and Dawes, agents oi the Oberlin Institute, who were present at the great meeting mentioned, a part of which we here subjoin : London, July 6, 1839. Amonsr the first of our acquaintances, in Lon don we are permitted to reckon George Tiiomp son, a beloved brother,1 well known in both coun tries as the unblenching enemy of slavery in ev ery form and in every clime, and the learless eloquent, conquering advocate of the Colored Man's rights. He received us and our object, as a pure, warm-hearted philantaropist, as a Christ ian, and a brother : and we were at once at home by the side of an able counsellor, and in the very heart of the most cheering sympathies. And is this the man who, when recently in the U. S. was maltreated, published as an incendiary, hoot ed as a spy denied the accommodations at t public House, in N. York, which money will al ways purchase even for a knave and in fact ' driven, from the country because he had the hon esty, and the moral courage to tell the truth al though he uttered but the truth, in speaking of our sins ? Would that the fact need not be found to blot anv nase in our country's history. But there it must be found. For, by reason of his splendid and effective efforts in behalf of his af flicted brethren, George Thompson has become the common property of the world, and whenever, either his names or his deeds are rehearsed, then and there too, must and will be told the astonish ing outrage inflicted upon him in the U. S. under the noon-day light of the nineteenth century, and in a Republic, but scourged and cursed and in danger of deathless blight by its bloody and re lentless system of slavery. Soon after our arrival we were invited to at tend a meeting of the committee of the British and foreign A. S. Society, convened to prepare a circular to call a convention of nations, to be hold- en in London for the discussion of the slave ques tion. To the question, how will our American friends feel on this subject, we gave our united assurance that our philanthropists would promptly approve and co-operate. We doubt not that y ou will be prepared to come up to this meetingw ell prepared to take part in its momentous discuss ions. No citizen of the United States, who has not mingled with English society, can know and feel the just scorn and reproach which the atrocious system of buying and selling, and whipping, and hunting, and branding, fathers, mothers, and chil dren, has brought upon our nation. The anom aly, almost inexplicably revolting, that slavery should make its strongest hold on earth, and prac tice it deepest wrongs, its most servile encroach ment in a Christian Republic, and even on people on whom, as a whole, the principles of Christiani ty, the point of slavery alone excepted, have a more powerful and happy influence, than upon any other nation, should produce deep searching of heart, in all the churches. We are not sur prised, though grieved, that there should be any just occasion for it, to. hear, as we did this morn ing, from the discerning wile ot a JVLethorlist min ister, the remark ' the religion of the American cnurcnes must be very low : now can your members be pious, while they uphold a system of such accumulating atrocities as your slave-sys tem ?' 1 he ministers and churches in America who hold a brother as property, or tolerate the practice, or even apologize for it, should know, that in view of all christendon they stand as cul prits at the bar of humanity, and of christian truth, however skilfully, they may weave over their eye sight the web of sophistry, or of self-interest. The time has come when the friends of human rights will speak out, on this subject, and sneak boldly,- nor delay to tell America, that she holds on to her slave-system at a fearful expense ; and to tell even her statesmen and orators, as well as her Divines, that their republicanism is very questionable indeed so long as, in all their rhetor ical gestures, the blood of the slave drops from ' their fingers, and around all their pulpits and communion tables, the tear3 and cries, and groans of the slave accumulate. Would that we could cast full upon the vision of our Seriate, at the tiext session, the searching significance of the question, often put to us already, respecting our distinguished countryman, now in London, and whom we all delight to honor, ' Is Daniel Web- ' ster an abolitionist ? How does ho stand upon the slave question V Brother, can you blame us, when we assure you that qur hearts are deeply pained at the question' Horn does J)a?iiel Web ster stand on the slave question V There is scarce ly a subject in the Turkish Empire, or a school boy in ail Greece, that does not know how this frreat man stands on the subject of constitutional iberty: and his skill and power in debate have placed the eloquence and statesmanship of the American benate, boldly in the ascendant, in the eyes of all nations. And we are informed that he is treated with disrespect in this metropolis of great men, and great devisings. And yet who among them all can tell how this republican sen ator stands on the slave queslipn ? Were we ask ed the question on the floor of Parliament, we vyould weupingly hold up the fact, that when Sen ator Preston, on the floor of the Senate Chamber vehemently declured that ' if an abolitionistshould come into South Carolina, if they could catch him they would hang him ;' not a syllable of rebuke for the offence proceeded, at any period of the ses sion, from the lips of Webster, although in tho pro fane declaration the senator from the South sport ed with the rights guaranteed by the constitution to every American citizen, and attempted to crush under his iron heel the very soul of liberty. Today, July 6, 1S39, has been signalised by another organization in favor of liberty another incipient measure in behalf of oppressed humani ty another opening in Divine Providence through which light and salvation will assuredly flow to many millions, and through which, even, will p:iss an influence that will beat powerfully on the Bastile of slavery in the United States, and knock at the door, and feel in the pocket of every slave holder there. To-day, in this city, where benev olent associations meet us, in very frequent and splendid munificence,, has been formed ' A British India Society, for bettering the condition of our fellow-subjects, the natives of British In dia.' We have just returned from the meeting, at which we were exceedingly interested. Lord Brougham, O'Connell, nnd Goorge Thompson addressed the crowded assembly. At 1 o'clock, P. M. his Lordship took the Chair, a- midst the joyous roar and the deafning plaudits of the people. He gave an extended apo'ogy lor not being able, in' the the opening speech expected from him to do justice to the subject, or to his own feelings? for he had been engaged the whole of the night in a debate in the house of Lords, and did not retire for sleep till 4 o'clock in the morninQ-. In the early part of his speech, a tre mendous clapping, nnd roar, and stamping after the English . method in such enses, commenced. But we neither, saw, nor heard any thing, in or from his Lordship, at that instant, that was mov ing. The moving cause, at that particular point, was near the door of the spacious Hall. O'Con nell had entered. And undulatory plaudits swell; ed and rolled, till he had reached the patform and bowed, and bowed again, and took his seat on the left of his Lordship, who instantly resumed his speech at the very semicolon at which he had been broken on, by what, to us, seemed a very unceremonious interruption. British India is an empire of more than 150 millions who are wholly under the British sway. ' They are at present governed by a Company with certain specified, limited, and chartered rights.' Under the oppressive requisitions of this government the people have suliered incalculably ' Whpn the .hnglish got there, there went out a decree that all India snouiu oc taxed. 1 tie Hindoos knew how to tax and took a sixth the Alanomedans Knew Deiter anu iook a lourtn the English knew best and took all, and would have taken more than all, but they know not how. That is, they demanded more than the land would yield, more than the grain put into Sicea rupees would pay. The people are now the victims of the collector, and thev may be put into the stocks, or driven from the soil as unworthy tenants of the land on which they were born.' As the legiti mate result of these government exactions, not from the sterility of the soil, for the earth there, even when ' furrowed by a wooden plough, and the seed scattered with a careless hand, yields three crops a year,' the most desolating famines very frequently occur. They have become more frequent under the hand of British, nominally a Christian power, than under the lvlahoinedan and Hindoo Governments ! Under the sceptre of a Christian Queen and the broad panoply of a nation in which Christian institutions accumu- ate, more than 500,000 have, in a single year, died from starvation, although the daily suste nance of an individual costs but three farthings. This state of things has at length aroused in quiry. I he eloquent tongue and untiring hand of George Thompson, have brought this subject before the British public, sustained by the most ample testimony. Deep feeling has been produ ced, a powerful and extended influence secured, and the bow of promise to the suffering, crushi: millions of India, mozo just radiant in a low point of the horizon, must assuredly, at the day which hastens on its approach, spread its broad arch, in all the brilliancy of hope realized, over the whole territory ot British India. We were happy to be present at the organization of a society, with such an object in view. We can never express, upon paner, our emotions under trie thrilling associa tions which clustered around us, as we looked o- ver the scene. The present meeting, as the re suit of previous discussions upon the question of iuman Kights: as the legitimate orlspnnsr of be nevolent efi'oit bearing upon other points ; as the blessed lruits ot investigations, and truth-tellimr disclosures upon the slave question ; a new Soci ety springing into being, as a younger sister in deed, in the train ; but preparing to lead millions out from vassalage, and in the commencement of her msasures to act indirectly, but in the progress directly, and with certain effect, and u mighty power upon slavery" in America ; and to impart a Iresh and blessed impulse to that glorious moral revolution, which neither rests nor sleeps, till all wrong is redressed. jjoru urougnam, in nis speecn, spread trie whole subject before the assembly. Other speak ers touched upon different, purts ol it. Dame O'Connell and George Thompson lent their ex traordinary powers to enlighten, to embellish, and to impress; while the delighted auditory very fre quently gave them the liberty to take breath, by their deafning plaudits. The particulars of the meeting, in a London paper, will accompany this, and we need not go into detail. O'Connell is a Catholic. On this occasion he spoke in the sub dued, but noble spirit of genuine philanthropy. ' Justice to India, ihe siillering, oppressed mill ions of India are my clients :' &c his advocacy had lor its object the opening wide the eiiectual door for the spread and triumphs of Christianity among them. How noble, dignified, kind, and imposing the position, the Irish Orator occupied in this ad vocacy. While the beloved Thompson was speaking, and who is the main-spring in this concern, and whose arguments and eloquence were all sweet ened and pointed by a tender spirit, and whose views were chastened and elevated by the distinct bearings of this movement upon the Kingdom of Christ on earth, our tears flowed freeht at the painful and humiliating fact, that this same broth er, when in the United States, was loaded with a buse, because, in a Kepublic, and in the midst of churches, and before a Christian people, he plead ed for a brother in bonds, and sustained boldly the principles of civil liberty. Our country and our countrymen were strongly, though in a gen tlemanly and Christian manner, rebuked in the meeting j and we believe that the eight or ten of us on the platform, from the United Slates, felt the rebuke to be well-limed, while we were put to the blush that it should be needed. The Philanthropists in this country, now feel that their direct efforts in the cause of Negro E- rnancipalion are no longer demanded. But their labors for the abolition of oppression, in oth er forms and aspects in the British dominion they will feel a growing interest in the speedy and universal triumnphsof genuine abolition prm ciples. 1 hey acknowledge their duty to Inn i and that there too the bonds of oppression shou be broken. And they also perceive that in the success of their effort for India, they unavoidably strike very hard, if thev do not cive the death blow to slavery in the United States. In th yearnincs of their benevolence for India, they se led the channel through which they can, under present circumstances, the most effectually oper ate for tho benefit of the world. JNor is it lanati cism or misanthropy in them to declare, that th slaveholders in the United States may be ' starve from their course when tho free labor of the 100, 000,000 of India shall compete with the uncom nensatcd labor of the 2,000,000 in the valley of the Mississippi, and on the plains of Carolina, when the Bombay cotton when the lndigenou cotton of India shall, in the Liverpool market un dersell theirs. 1 hen, shall political economy con strain them to do that which justice and religio ask in vain at their hands to-day.' Let the eye o liberty be sleepless ; the reward is certain, and shall be glorious. This movement for India, coming up as th Jruil ot their successful warfare against the slave trade, and against slavery in the West Indies cannot so divert the current of feeling to a new channel, as to prevent, or even to hinder the en lire completion of the work in the Islands; or dry up, or even diminish their sympathies' tor thei struggling transatlantic brethren. JNo. Bntis feeling on negro slavery and negro emancipation is strong. British sympathy flows quick and deep lor the imbruted colored man in the Unite Slates, and for those who freely expend their love nnd money and energies for his deliverance. At the meeting for India to-day-, and in the full tid which flowed out'for the Teuress ol her wrongs even the mentioning of American slavery produ ced the cry, hear, hear: and at the presentation of the guilt of the United States for tolerating i and of the prospect of its total overthrow there the assembly poured forth their strong, hearty ac clamation. This movement for India is the commencemen ol a gigantic moral enterprise. Its results, ii sue cessful, outrun all calculation, even when regard ed only as the saving of human life, and the in crease of human happiness there : but especially when you append the. influences which it must produce upon the general cause of benevolence It should recive the co-operation of every philan thropist. The dear brethren here, who have com menced it, we doubt not, will receive the hearty sanction of our Americen brethren, and who in re- turn for British sympathy, as also for the merited rebuke ol the slaveholder, and the time-serving course of his apologist, will send back a response which shall cheer them in their labor of love. Vv will look: lor its speedy arrival, rejoicing, mean while, that the friends of Human Kights, on both continents, may hasten on the accomplishment of their glorious object by their mutual prayers, re monstrances and appeals. slavery as it is is received ana read here with' great interest. The developement of facts produces tho greatest astonishment, and is waking up a fresh and mighty indignation against Amer ican slavery. Many are saying that now we have proof that O Connell and others have not laid thei charges against the slave-breeders and slavehold ers of America too high. President Lord on the Agitation Question It seems the vigorous movements of the Vermont Anti-Slavery Society, and particularly the lectures of Col. J. P. Miller, have given great trouble to certain clergymen of tho Vermont Chronic school. Having played "dog in the manger oelore and since the Anli-5lavery agitation com menced, it is passing cruel that they should be disturbed' in the year five of pro-slavery gags, and that the people they call theirs, should be taught without their leave that they have duties tc per- lorm in relation to the freedom of their country ! They raise a bitter cry about irreverence towards their pastoral rights and dignity! If they do not. others do understand that the only disrespect shown towards the pastoral olhce is that ol which they themselves are guilty. They are emphatic ally a disgrace to it. Possibly the fault is not en tirely of malice aforethought. We are sometimes charitably inclined to believe that they are men who have mistaken their calling, or been urged out of their spheres by officious friends. Behind the plough, or the counter, or a la Turc on the tailor's high bench, they would have served tlieir day -and generation. But in the pulpit they are lost for want of size. They are like mounted military officers, who, with both hands on the pom mel, find it as much as they can do to retain the saddle, without a thought of drawing the sword and whose only word of command is Whoa, po nev ! Wh o oa ! , If they were worthy of the pulpit, or indeed, if there were stuli enough in them to make lull ized men of, why did they not, at least as soon as sla very began to excite public attention, take up the subject in all its extent, and make thorough work with it? Tlieir dear people are not idiots. Tiiey themselves were capable of discovering the right idea and the gospel side of such a question. Hav ing established themselves on the truth, nomalter what, why did they not, by full argumentation and discussion, visibly make an end of all oppo nents, bring their own dear people to an anchor age where they would not be blown about " by every wind of doctrine?" If the "leaders of God's people " nre not able to do this, what are they good for? But we have digressed. lo turn our caption one of the ministers of this sort wroto to President Lord, of Dartmouth College, with a view to call forth something from him, to stop the overwhelming rush of anti-slavery lectures by which such nightmares as himself were likely to be driven from the snoring churches. Among other things, he wanted to know; first, whether private or iay members of churches had any authority to agitate the subject of abolition in opposition (to the judgment and wishes of the pas lor " the leader of God's people." Secondly, whether itinerant laymen or preachers have any authority to agitate within the pastor's jurisdiction, contrary lo his will, &c. The answer from Dr. Lord was any thing but the thing expected. Yet as the questioner had promised its publication, he dared not keep it to himself. Accordingly it ap pears in the Vermont Chronicle of the 10th inst., followed by a reply of the questioner, in which he presents himself in a very silly predicament. Dr. Lord has long been, theoretically, an abolitionist. In his letter he says : " I am as truly for abolition ism as for Christianity, believing them to be essen tially related." He stands aloof . from the anti slavery organization, for which we have been sor ry, like Dr. Channing, though probably not for the same reasons. We wish such men to do more for the slave. Still they do much. We rever ence them for it. We rpverence them still more because they do honor to the Christian ministry. Does any rational man think that if all the pastors were like Dr. Lord, there would be any war be tween them and the abolitionists any of those dreadlul onsets upon the " clerical order." No ;.: t.l .1 , itinerants wuuiu men nuu wieir wonc aone, or half-done, to their hands, and the pastors would -...i .t l .. .. . unu uieiiis-eives iiigiier iu uiu estimation ol tlieir people as they gave the parting God-speed to the laithiui advocates oi the slave, we wage no war with the ministry, but with the clerical drones with which it is so shamefully burdened.

PBIE1L PS COMPOUND ENTIRELY VEGETABLE, A new mid valuable remedy for all 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 Billious 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, Costiveness, lleaa- aclie See. &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. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills and being under belief of the firm having restored healthy secretions of the glandular system more than once, by us- ina the Tomato Apple as a vegetable ; 1 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 Tomato Pills will, in great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oj tAL- omei.. 1 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 .Klieumatism, JJvs- DeDsia. 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. lours respectlully, THOMAS JOHNSTON. From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated New York, Nov. 6th, 1838. To R. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used vour 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 the public to bearing my testimony in favor of this tho 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 ninny months ; 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 his dreadful malady the past summer ; when accidentally I heard of your Pills, and learning something of their prop erties and characters, and tlieir 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, Druggists.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 ind now that 1 have given them a thorough trial, can cheerfully and unhesitatingly pronounce thein the very best remedy extant for any derangement or affection of th Liver or Spleen, Bullous Jljfections, Palpitation oj the Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of its forms : also as a good family medicine, are the best with which 1 am acquainted At my recommendation and solicitation many of my friends and acquaintances have takon them as a family med icine, with perfect success. I grant my permission to use this as you please. lours truly, ISAAC YV.AVJi.KX, J7S1 YVllIiam street. From the Rev. I. Jv. Sprague, Pastor of the fourth Congregational Church, Hartford, Conn. Dr. G. n. 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 use has been greatly bene ficial in preserving our health, l or some time past 1 hav. made use of your 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 formvself and children, to any other mcdicin I have ever used to correct the irregularities of the stomach nd bowels. Yours, &c. I. IN. SI it AGUE. The following Letter, just received, illustrates in nn in teresting manner, the applicability of this medicine In lu mors and scrouilous swellings, and is another evidence its effects us 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 may lake considerable time (as it does for all remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full nd complete effects. Ihe accompanying remarks of Messrs. Chesebrough & Leonard, will show that the statement of Mr. Vredenburgh is entitled to our full confidence and is without exaggera- ion. Rome, April 27th, 1839. G. R. Phelps, M. D. Dear Sv Herewith we send ou the statement of ftlr. Andrew Vredenburgh, a very respectable farmer of this town. His case is considered a very remarkable one, and his statements may be relied up on with the utmost commence.
