For tlie Voice of Feeedom.
Weep, weep, oh my country! in wretchedness weep,
But thy tears cannot whiten thy shame;
For the doom of the slave, like a cloud on the deep,
Hangeth darkling and dread o'er thy name.
Thy standard unfurls its broad folds o'er the wave.
In the Biinlight of every clime
A beacon of hope to the true and the brave,
And a foe to iujustico and crime.
But a vision of woe overshadows thy pride,
And thy cup is commingled with tears;
Like tho battle's red stain on the breast of the tide.
One spot on thy banner appears.
It. gleameth afar, and the nations behold
That spot on the flag of the free,
And scoffingly ask if that blood-dabbled fold
An emblem of Freedom can be ?
They ask if the symbol of freedom's a chain,
IC the fetter is Liberty's mark ?
Can ye Bay in reply to their honest disdain,
That the blood of your brother is dark .'
They will laugh at the plea, and thy name shall become
A scorn and reproach to the world ;
Till the Angel of Vengeance thall hasten thy doom,
And the flag of thy glory be furled.
Weep, weep, oh my country! in penitence weep!
And thy tear drops should never be dried,
Till the blood-stain that gleameth so redly and deep,
Is washed from thy banner of prido.
Thou wert won by the brave, for the home of the free,
Bo the free then, thy heritage still ;
Be a homo where the slave and the exile may fleo
From tbe scourge of oppression and ill.
Thus, thus oh my country! thine honor retrieve,
Wash the plague-spot of sin from thy fame;
Nor longer permit that thy children should grieve,
For the cloud that encircles thy name. S. A. E.
Sense of Beauty.
Spirit ! who over this our mortal earth,
Where nought hath birth
Which imperfection does not some way dim,
Since Earth offended Him
Thou who, unseen, from out thy radiant w ings
Doat shower down light o'er mean and common things,
And, wandering to and fro,
Through tho condemned and sinful world dost go,
I Taunting the wilderness, the human heart,
With gleams, of glory that too soon depart,
Gilding both weed and flower
What is thy birth divine, and whence thy mighty power?
The Sculptor owns thee : on his high pale brow,
Bewildering images are pressing now;
Groups whose immortal grace
His chisel ne'er shall trace, -Though
in his mind the fresh creation glows;
High forms of godlike strength,
Or limbs whose languid length
The marble fixes in a sweet repose !
At thy command,
His fond and patient hand
Moulds the dull clay to Beauty's richest line;
Or, with more tedious skill,
Obedient to th? will,.
By touches imperceptible and fine,
Works slowly, day by day,
The rough-hewn block away,
Till the soft shadow of the bust's pale smile
Wakes into statue life, and pays th'assiduoug toil !
Thee, tho young Tainter knows wliosn fervent eyes,
O'er the blank waste of canvass fondly bending,
Sen fast within its magic circle rise
Home pictured scene, with colors softly blening;
Green bowers and leafy glades,
The old Arcadian shades,
Where thwarting glimpses of the sun are thrown.
And dancing nymphs and shepherds one by one
Appear to bless his sight,
In Fancy's glowing lightl
Peopling that spot of green Earth's flowery breast
With every attitude of joy and rest.
Lo, at his pencil's touch steals faintly forth
(l ike an uprising star in the cold North)
Some facrfSvhich soon shall glow with Beauty's fire;
Dim seems the sketch to those who stand around,
Dim and uncertain' as an echoed sound,
But oh, how bright to him whose hand thou dost inspire !
Thee also, doth the dreaming Poet hail
Fond comforter of many a dreary day,
When through the clouds his fancy's car can sail
To worlds of radiance, far, how far away!
Ln, at thy touch, as at the burst of light
Which Morning shoots along the purple hills,
Chasing the shadows of the vanished Night,
And silvering nil the darkly gushing rills
Giving each blossom, gemm'd with sparkling dew,
Its bright and proper hue :
SodaTU thy glow across the Poet's soul,
So from his world the rvists of darkness roll,
And shows it as it should be as it was,
E'er the dim night of Death came down to mar
The holy and the beautiful, and causo
A struggle and interminable war
Amidst creation. He beholds the face
Of the old world with a young Eden grace !
Disease and Want and Sin and Pain are not
Nor homely nor familiar things Man's lot
Is like his aspirations, bright and high;
And even the haunting thought that Man must die,
Hi dream so changes from its tearful strife,
Death seems but fainting into purer life!
Not only theso thy presence woo,
Tbe less inspired own thee ton;
Thou hast thy tranquil source
In the deep well-springs of the human heart,
And gushest with sweet force
When most imprisoned ; causing tears to start
In the worn citizen's o'er-wearied eye,
As, with a sigh,
At the bright close of some rare holiday,
He sees the branches wave, the wators play,
And hears the clock's far distant mellow chime
Warns him a busier world reclaims his time!
Thee, Childhood's heart confesses when ho sees
The heavy rose-bud crimson in the brec.e
When the red choral wins his eager ga.c.
Or the warm sunbeam dazzles wilh its rays.
Thee, through his varied hours of rapid joy,
The eager boy, .
Who wild across the grassy meadow springs,
And still with sparkling eyes
Pursues th'uncertain prize,
Lured by the velvet glory of its wings!
And so from youth to age yea, till the end
An unfnrsaking, unforgetting friend,
Thou hoverest round (island when all is o'er,
And Earth's most loved illustrious please no more,
Thou stealost gently to the couch of Death,
There, while the lagging breath
Comes faint and fitfully, to usher nigh
Consoling visions from thy native sky.
Making it sweet to diet
The stc't man's ears are faint, his eyes are dii:i.
But his heart listens to the heavenward hymn;
And his soul sees not, not the weeping band,
Who come with mournful tread
To kneel about his bed-
But while robed angels, who around him stand.
And wave his spirit to the better Land!
So living, dying, still our hearts pursuo
That loveliness which never met our view;
Still to the last the ruling thought will reign,
Nor deem the feeling given was given in vain!
For it may be our banished souls wcall?
In this their earthly thrall1,"'
(With the sick drerms of exiles) that far world
Whence angels once were hurled;
Or it may be, a faint and trembling sense,
Vague, as permitted by Omnipotence,
Foreshows th'immorta'l radiance round us shed,
When the imperfect shall be perfected!
Like the chained eagle in his fettered might,
Straining npon the heaven his wistful sight,
Who toward the upward glory fondly springs
With nil the vain slrcngth of his shivering wings
So chained to earth, and baffled yet so fond
Of tho pure sky whech lies so fir befond,
Wema'te the attempt to soar in many a thought,
Of Beauty born, and into beauty wrought;
Dimly we struggle onwards who shall say
Which glimmering light leads nearest to the Day?
From the F.mporium.
Advice to Young Ladies.
We cheerfully comply with the request of a cop
respondent in giving place to the following letter
which we believe we have seen several tunes in
print but which is worthy to he perused and re
perused till its sentiments are fixed in every youth-
lul heart. 1 he editor from whom we copy ob
serves : "It was written by a luiher to his only
daughter, who, her mother being dead, resided
with her aunt at some distance from him. The
high sense of honor and morality breathed in every
line, sufficiently recommend it: and it is certain
ly high' time that the subject treated upon should
be considered as a strictly moral one, subject to
moral laws, and not ns many young ladies prac
tically treat it, one on which they have the right
to exercise their idle caprice and heartless trifling.
" You have now, my dear child, arrived at an
age, when a young lady begins to think of form-
ng connexions of the most solemn and sacred
character. I need not remind you of the intense
interest with which a father must always regard
a child, who seems about taking a step which is to
determine all her future earthly happiness. A
yrmng lady, at eighteen, often needs a warning
voice to point out the quicksands over which she
s speeding her thoughtless career. 1 hear you
are beautiful, and have many admirers. I am sor
ry for it. A young woman, whose conduct is mark
ed with strict honor and principle, cannot have
many admirers. There is nothing that more cer
tainly marks a bad heart and depraved moral prin
ciples, or worse, a thorough destitution of it, than
this cruel and guilty encourgement of honorable
low. The thief who robs me of my purse, may
have the plea of necessity; the murderer who de
stroys my life, may have the palliation of want
or revenge. Rut she who sutlers a young man to
be in any doubt, when she is resolved to refuse
him, is guilty of a scarcely less crime, shrink
not my child, is guilly ola scarcely less moral
crime than either; she not only robs without a
plea of necessity, or the palliation of revenge, but
in absolute defiance of every principle that could
bind a generous mind. She steals but to fling her
theft away; and stabs in pure wantonness, the
very heart that is beating lor her. Her robbery
is greater than that of the common thief, in pre
cisely the proportion in which happiness isldearer
than money. Vet he is confined to prevent th
evils society might otherwise suffer, and this
darker criminal is turned loose upon it to walk
unmolested i;i its high places.
Do not tell me that a lover seizes upon every
trifle to feed his unwarranted nope?: for if that be
the case, it is obvious that it is in trifles, that a
honest minu should be most upon its gjaru. in
important matters you would naturally bec?.u'.io-is;
but to acknowledge t he importance ot trifles, and
yet to neglect them, is not to excuse tile crime, but
not to avow it; to acknowledge that you have
shairjelessly and inexcusably violated honor, prin
ciple, and duty. A young man is never long at
tached to n young lady, without her being aware
of it ; commonly ind'.-etl, before he is himself aware
of the nature and extent of his feelings. The
knowledge is almost intuitive. From that mo
ment! if she be persuaded that she cannot reciv
rocate his sentiments, tier course is plain before
her it is cool, nndeviatinir, tinhesitatinir repulse
on every occasion, place, and manner. Love will
die without hope. If the gentleman have perse
vered it isbecause you have trifled with him. You
have not been constant in your repulse. You hae
ruined his happiness, planted thorns in his pillow,
and daggers in his heart, either from wanton
cruelty, or shameful and disgraceful carelessness.
To crush love in the bud is easy ; but trifle
and tamper with it till it has taken root in the
heart, and its destruction is attended with the ex
tinction of the heart's best, noblest, and holiest
feelniQ-s. W hen a man finds that she, whom he
would have chosen from all the world, has betrayed
an equal want of heart and principle, she, of whom
he has accustowjd himself to think as the first of
her sex, his natural inference is, if such be the best,
what must the rest be? He begins to doubt whether
principle, exists among females, except in name ;
and th'.vka perhaps, he has had a fortunate escape ;
for she, mark me, my child, it is a stern truth,
she who would he guilty of such degrading con
duct, would be restrained by principle from the
commission of no crime whatever. There would
be fewer satires upon women, did women but re
member that crime is always criminal, and that
swindling is not the less swindling, because its
object is not money, but that which money cannot
But I find there is another custom prevalent a
mong the coquettes of the day. It is to treat the
unfortunate admirer with coolness and repulse be
fore others, while when alone with herself, he is
lured on by smiles and a show of favor, till at last,
from a mere agony of lacerated feeling, he offers
himself in-order to put the matter at rest. In this
case, the lady is safe every one will wonder, that
he should have ventured so far, in the face of
such obvious apparent repulse he will be too
proud to complain, or state the truth ;, and if her
own heart do not sting ler for such duplicity and
meanness, she is safe from the vofce of reproach
and she who will be guilty of such meanness,
has little to dread from conscience. The gentle
man, in these matters, labors from the beoirinine;
under a great disadvantage. His feelings are ncT
liced, and his advances noted by many a curious
eye; they nre made the subject of remark, or jest,
or ridicule. Jn the presence ol the lady, lie feels
that he is watched; and a constraint and diffi
dence appear therefore in his manners peculiarly
unbecoming. He endeavors to treat her with in
difference, & shows a rudeneglect. I have Ion
learned to consider this apparent neglect, as th
strongest sign of the deepest attachment. H
dare not trust his tongue, lest it should betray h
heart. The lady, on the contrary, is the passive
retired recipient ot these attentions, bhutupi
the secresy of her own heart, her feelings are not
so scanned, and commented on ; but he, he is the
prominent character, whose success or failure is
the subject of conversation, speculation, and ra
lery, of the idle and curious. Do not niisunder
stand me. I do not mean that the lady who i
willing to encourage a gentleman, should meet
him as it were half way. Jiy no means. lie
conduct should be uniform. Never forget this
prime maxim in these matters, Not to discourage
is always to encourage.
No one who has given this subject even a Utile
reflection, can, 1 am persuaded, ever act lightly
it involves a deep, a tremendous responsibleness
The happiness, prospects, and sometimes even the
life of one human being, depends upon the con
duct and breath of another. My child, I have
written more seriously and urgently on this sub
ject, through a fear, I have before hinted, lest you
should, from any inadvertence, be guilty. You
choice I will not, I could not bias. But Iliad
rather hear that you are engaged to a man o
good character and industrious habits, than to
the wealthiest man without them; for in th
country, these are always a sure pledge of fina
success. And 1 will tell vou frankly, my child
write the more earnestly from a fear that you ari
even now trifling with the hopes and happiness
of an amiable and high-minded young man ; on
who I am sure, has long been attached to you
When I say " has long been," you will under
stand me. I know not the nature of your feel
ngs towards him, but if his are not reciprocated
lo say he "has long been," is the bitterest sar
casm I could use. Minds like his, of vivid imag'
ination and intense feeling, commonly form those
grave, deep-toned characters, that can never be
trifled with with impunity. You may indeed now
enjoy a pleasure, like that the child feels in press
ing the leaf of the sensitive plant, and seeing l
shrink beneath his touch ; yet I pity you if you can
enjoy it. Beware that the death blow to his hap'
piness, be not likewise one to your reputation
It will be but just should it prove so, or if de
pendence cannot be placed in your circumstances
where vou are bound by every tie of honor, feel
ing and gratitude, as well as duty, to act with
single minded integrity, who will trust you in mat
ters ol mere duty, where circumstances and motives
are ol a less imperious and commanding character;
Certainly not I not your father.
Another, if possible, more mean and culpable
species of coquetry, is the practice of not giving
decided encouragementor repulse with a view o
keeping your slave till you have learned if, to
use-the cant phrase you can do better. 1 know
not an expression that betrays more despicable
meanness, ktie who uses it, shows a willingness
to sell her hand, to trafTiek her person for value
received, that is revoltincr in the Inchest degree,
I know there maybe cases where suspense to the
gentleman may be justified ; as where the lady
inclines to accept him, but is restrained by circum
stances, which she imagines will at last cease to
operate, from giving too absolute encouragement
or repulse ; as the opposition of friends she is bound
to respect. For my own part, my dear Maria, I
could never reconcile it to my duty or to rny
conscience to mterlere larther than to give my
opinion, unless 1 saw you about forming a connec
tion obviously derogutory or improper. No onei
not even a parent, can tell what character will
render a lady happy, Lut herself; on herself, on
herself alone then, must and ought to rest the re
sponsibleness of her choice. I have seen so ma
ry marriges commenced with all the glitter o
wealth and pomp terminate in misery and broken
hearts ; and so many that have been begun with
no very promising auspices, which have proved as
happy as human life admits, that 1 am convin
ced that the parent who officiously interposes
stands answerable to God, his child, and his con
science, in a degree of responsibleness most fear
lul and tremendous.
Let me advise you likewise, never to make
use of the silly method, which some young ladies
adopt, ol employing a tfiird person to repel unde
sired attentions. Besides that this is viever sue
cessful.it is certain of one bitter, inevitable conse
quence, the inveterate hatred of the man for his
intermeddling, hatred, the effects of which will
seldom cease, till the officious friend has lost more
reputation, if possible, than he has of peace. A
third person, without provocation, is wantonly
striking at his peace ; his hatred will then be com'
mensurate; but riot his alone. Others too are
on the watch, and if thev do not feel interest e
nough to hate her, in cool contempt, they will
probably surpass him. I know they will attempt
to deceive him into the belief that the interference
is accidental ; but they cannot succeed. A lover
will deceive himself, but he will not be deceived
He will distinguish foes from friends with an un
erring certainty. Inning xircumstances, and
words aiv gathered from every quarter with the
rapidity of thought, and inferences drawn which
are almost never mistaken. No one but a parent
can ever interfere with impunity; and alter all,
the lady herself is the only person who can sue
cessfully and effectually repel the lover. In this
as in every situation, honesty is wisdom, and
confidence of the husband will be strengthened in
the wife, in the same proportion that the lover could
depend on the integrity of his mistress. Ladies
too often attempt to train husbands, as anglers catch
fish by withdrawing the bait as he approaches
it, till he is impelled to grasp at every hazard ;
but she who angles for a husband may find too
late, that she has gained the man, at the expense
ol the husband s confidence in her principles and
heart. I now conclude my lonnr letter. I do not
ask you to make mo your confidant, but I implore
you to remember that the only thing 1 can never
'torsive in my child, is wanton trifling wilh the
happiness of others, and her consequent clishon
or. The blessing of heaven be on you."

A new nnd valuable remedy for all diseases
arising from impurities of the blood,
Morbid Secretions of the Liver
nlftl Stomach,
Also, a subsistute for CAIjOMEL, 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, Costineness, Head
ache he. &c, and which is now prescribed by many of the
most respectable Physicians, is forsule by authorized Agents
in most of the towns in the United States, and at wholesale
bv the Proprietors, Hartford, Conn.
A few only of the latest certificates can be inserted here,
for numerous others see large pamphlets just puoiisnea
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 ur. I'helps uompouna xomaio jrms
and being under belief of the firm having restored neaitny
secretions of the glandular system more than once, by us-
ine the Tomato Apple as a vegetable ; 1 have been indue-
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
a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use of Cal
omel. I believe that in diseased liver they are more
nromnt 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 mv knowledge extends, 1 have no hesitancy in rec
ommending them as a highly valuable Family Medicine.
Hours respectlully,
From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated
New York, Nov. 6th, 1838.
To J?. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used vonr 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 J 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 the world's invaluable medicine.
Six vears 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 ;
and at length mainly restored to a tolerable degree oi
health, though not without an apprehension that I should
be similarly afflicted. AJy tears have been Dut loo well
confirmed by a recurrence of nearly all the symptoms of
this dreadful malady the past summer ; when accidentally
1 heard of your Pills, and learning something of their prop
erties nnd characters, and their rapidly increasing celebri
ty, 1 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 ;
and now that I have given them a thorough trial, can
cheerfully and unhesitatingly pronounce them the very
best remedy extant tor any derangement or ailection ol trie
Liver or Spleen, Billious Affections, Palpitation of the
Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of its forms : 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 ta'ion them as a family med
icine, with perfect success. 1 grant my permission to use
this as you please. Yours truly,

Dr. G. R. Phelps,
Sir For several years past I have found it well to keep
in my lamily a bottle ol castor on ana oiner simple meu
cines, and no doubt ther 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
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 medicin
1 have ever used to correct the irregularities ol the stomac
and bowels. Yours, &c. I. JN. fcP-KAGLt.
The following Letter, just received, illustrates in an in
teresting manner, the applicability of this medicine tn lu
mors and scrofulous swellings, and is another evidence
its effects as an alternative, in changing the action of th
glandular and absorbent systems, and in renovating th
constitution impaired by protracted disease ; although in
some cases it may take considerable time (as it does for all
remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full
and complete effects.
