THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
POETRY LINES, Written on receiving an elegant walking-cane, manufac tared from portion of the wood-work of Pennsylvania Hall, which the fire had spared. BY JOHN O. WHITTIER. Token of friendship true and tried, From one whose fiery heart of youth . With mine has beaten side by aide, For Liberty and Truth; With honest pride the gift I take And prize it for the giver's sake, But not alone because it (ells Of generous hand and heart sincere, Around that gift of friendship dwells A memory doubly dear Earth's noblest aim man's holiest thought, With that memorial frail inwrought! Pure thoughts and sweet like flowers unfold And precious memories round it cling, Even as the Prophet's rod of old In beauty blossoming: And buds of feeling pure and good Spring from its cold unconscious wood. Relic of Freedom's shrine a brand Plucked from its burning! let it ba Dear as a jewel from the hand Of a lost friend to me! Flower of a perished garland left. Of lifj and beauty unbereft! Oh! if the enthusiast pilgrim bear A relic from the crumbling stone On Caracella's marble stairs, Or round the Pantheon Or olive bough from some wild tree. Hung over old Thermopyla. If leaflets from some hero's tomb, Or moss-wreath torn from ruins hoary, Or flowers whose plundered sisters bloom On fields renowned in story, Or fragment from the Alhambra's crest, Or the great rock by Druids blessed! If Eiin's shamrock, greenly growing Where Freedom led her stalwart kern. Or Scotia's ' rough bur thistle' blowing ' On Bruce's Bannockburn Or Runnymead's wild English rose, Or lichen plucked from Sempach's snows! If it be true that things like these To heart and eye bright visions bring. Shall not far holier memories To this memorial cling ? Which needs no mellowing mist of time To hide the crimson stains of crime! Wreck of a temple, unprofaned Of courts where Peace with Freedom trod. Lifting on high with hands unstained Thanksgiving unto God: Where Mercy's voice of love was pleading For human hearts in bondage bleeding: Where midst the sound of rushing feet And curses on the night air flung, That pleading voice rose calm and sweet From woman's earnest tongue; And Riot turned his scowling glance, Awed, from her tranquil countenance! That Temple now in ruin lies, The fire-stain on its shattered wall. And open to the changing skies Its black and roofless hall It stands before a Nation's sight A grave-stone over buried Right! But from that ruin, as of old, The fire- scorched stones themselves arc cryinjr, And from their ashes white and cold lis timbers are replying! A voice which Slavery cannot kill Speaks from its crumbling arches still! And e'en this relic from thy shrina Oh, holy Freedom! hath tome A potent power of voice and sign. To testify of thee. And as I grasp it now I feel A stronger faith a warmer zeal. Nor all unlike that mystic rod Of old strcched o'er the Egyptian wave. Which opened in the strength of God A pathway for the slave, It yet may point the bondman's way And turn the spoiler from his prey ! Sixth month 28th, 1839. MISCELLANEOUS. From the Liberator. C7 The friends of the slave generally will re joice to hear of the safe arrival in England of Wendell Philips and lady. Probably, no young man has ever left this country with a farcer uuni- ber of friends and admirers behind him, deeply so licitous lor his safety ana wellare, than Mr. Phil lips. The following letterjfrom his pen, announc- ing hii arrival, contains much interesting informa tion, and will be read with interest. We expeci to receive other communications from him, as he shall find opportunity to write. The health of his lady, we are glad to hear, has been improved by the voyage. May they, in due time, be res tored to their home and ".friends in safety ! The labors of Mr. Phillips are greatly needed in this Commonwealth at the present time ; but he will do much for the slave arid for humanity abroad. It seems he has seen our beloved Thompson, -with whom he had no personal acquaintance in this countrv, and whose health, thousands will be pleased to learn, is excellent, while he still eontin ues.to be in labors most abundant. And what a mighty and glorious enterprise is that which be . has espoused. Letter from Wendell Phillips. London, July 31, 1839. Sear Garrison : On ' my arrival here, I delivered the letters I brought, to all the individuals I could find, and put the rest in the way of reaching their destina tion. II. Martineau is in France ; so I lose the pleasure of seeing her, for the present. Thomp son I sought tit one or two p.nti-slaverv ' homes, before I could find trace of him. At Alderman bury, they could tell ine nothing of his whereabout except that he was probably near uonaon. in deed I found Aldermanbury silent, lonely, almost deserted, exepnt nn occasional visit from its fcecre tary, Mr. Stokes ; but the associations of the place make me iirxrpr nwhile. looking nround on its well filled presses" its long piles of documents, its busts and books that scene oi so many sacriuces, coun sels, nnd i-trufdes, whose resultc stretch over both , o c m hem is nheres and into ages to come. I found news of our friend, at last at the Brit ish India Society ; and on Wednesday called at his rooms. He looks well, seems strong busy deeply engaged, just setting off for Glasgow, to address a meeting there on the first of August ivhither he urged me to go with him ; but it was mpossible much to rnv regret. We are afraid o stay longer than absolutely necessary in thi: damp, cold climate. He has been very kind in in troducing me to persons and places.. I saw him daily while he remained in town : vet, owing to his multiplied engagements, correcting the proofs ol the account ol the great India meeting, attend ing committee consults, &c, we hed not a great deal ol conversation together. I was glad howev er, to be able to give him, what he had not seen, a file of the Liberator since January. He left us on Saturday, with repeated charges to give his best love and kindest remembrance to you all. ' I re member,' said he, 'every hole into which I crept in America every man that 1 saw : they are a dear.' ' Tell them lam not, perhaps able to judge yet about the present differences. My heart is knit to them all, but especially to the Massac hu setts abolitionists. ' We went together to the House of Commons I have heard some of the principal speakers Hume, Russell, Spring, Rice, Tet'l, Lushington, Sir James Graham. It was cheering to observe the constant vigilance and e irnest attention on ev ery subject which could effect, in the remotest de gree, the slavery question ; and this from botl sides of the House. That foul stain on the Ens- lish government the apprenticing of the negroes found in the captured slave ships (after which they are usually lost sight of and frequently trier ged in the slave population, especially in Cuba,) was commented on and pledges given by the colo nial Secretary, that it would be discontinued in future. Lnshington introduced the subject of the Coolies, it excited an animated discussion from Whigs and Tories, and all the speakers demanded ihat the contracts made by those unhappy men, should be annulled by government, at any cost, and the importation forbidden in future. O'Connell was present awhile, but took no part in the debates. owe to his kindness my second admission to the Ho'ise. No one enters, even into the galleries, without a permit from a member. The friends here are deeply interested in the great meeting of next year, fixed for 12th of June 1840. Dawes and his comrade, with myself, at tended a meeting of the committee of the British and Foreign A. S. Society, in which it was dis cussed. Sturge presided. They were very anx ious to have a large representation from America. Thompson insists on your coming, accompanied by many of the men and women of our ranks. A large body of questions have been prepared, suit ed to every quarter of the world where slavery ex ists, or has just been abolished, which, if attended to by th delegates, will place before the world h more valuable bndy of information than we have seen hitherto. The Committee voted a delegation to wait on Daniel Webster, who is now in the city. The friends here are most deeply engaged in the investigation of the India question. Thomp son is swallowed up in it. You will see by the pamphlets, (a large stock of which are sent with his and Miss Pcase'3 contribution to the Ladies' Fair,) that it has the most direct bearing on A merican slavery. It seems, from the testimony of India Stockholders, India Governors, English cot ton and sugar merchants that labor in India is less than twopence per day ; and sugar may be placed in the English market at eighteen pormds sterling per ton while the American and West India is selling at 42. Such is the testimony of the rich Fleming of Glasgow. Cotton, also, can be affor ded at three pennies a pound, while ours sells at nine pence. Gladstone, the great slaveholder, infamous for having originated the importation of the Hill Coo lies, confessed within a month, that his invest ments in the East yielded double what they did in the West Indies; and in his own words, 'It is all up with slave labor.' Brougham and O'Connell have entered the field. At a great meeting here, they both spoke with great eloquence. Brougham complimented our friend Thompson more than ever. A host of philanthropists are marshalled to claim for India the liberty to loork for, it seems an oppressive land-tax grinds them' to the dust. Yetnotw.ip. standing thi?, the prices are as stated above. It is whispered, alss, that several capitalists are era barking largely in the cotton trade in East !ndia. I he first ship that enters a British harbor, freigh ted with the result of such investments, bears with her the death-warrant of slavery in the United States and the Brazils ! They tell us of Eastern mngic, which chang ed gold into slate stones in vour verv hand. Perhaps we can unseal from their imprisonment, some oi tnose genu ot the Jiast, like the fisher man in the fairy tale, and before their march Mr. Clay will find his $1200,000,000 property in kuutigu ivuuot ill Mta ciy glUAJJ. It is not only the abolitionists who are anxiou in regard to India at present. English statesmen. here, and in the East, are aware that oppression has driven her iron so deep into starved and plun dered H indostan, that there may bo reaction at any moment. One of the Governors observed, he should not bo suprised ' to wake any morning, and find the buble burst;' and I heard Sir Robert Peel assert, in the House of Commons, that the Mate of India was such as to authorize nn increase of the military force. Thus every thing seems to conspire to aid the movements of our friends by directing public attention to the subject, by encour aging India produce, and freeing it from excessive taxation. And the national heart is stirred by the prospect of being freed from dependence on for eigners, for the greai staple of their manufactures. God grant the plan may succeed ; and then that large class of men, upon whom moral influence is thrown away, will find Anti-Slavery staring from their ledgers. We can hold our conventions in deserted counting-houses, and our socieiy need publish only the prices current. We shall seethe South, ready now to nullify an ' unconstitutional and oppressive ' tariff! beg protec tion for her great staple, to enable our manufac turers to compete with England, and uphold the slave-drivers, and, doubtless, we shall see the North accede to the plan ! But protected or un protected, before the sunny gales of that tropic, , whence the merchants bring their spicy drngs,' the fetters of the, slave will melt away. Sturge thinks the late slaveholders in the.West Indies require too much watching, to allow the abolitionists to take their eyes from that spot. He takes, therefore, no great part in the new move ment. Scoble and Stuart are in the West Indies. Their accounts are highly interesting, and very favorable. We spent an evening with the Peases. They remind us more of the American friends than any others we see here. By the bye, I met yesterday in the Strand, a white and a colored man walking arm in arm, both of highly respectable appearance, laughing merri ly. Looking round, and seeing no appearancp of a' mob, gave me the most realizing sense I have hail, that I was no longer in America ! ! Remember me affectionately to all the friends in that land ' which, homelings, from this little world we name.' There are no meetings, after all, like our Board meetings, and no gatherings like the gatherings at 25, Cornhill. Remember me to them all. I hope you have, by this time, Ipctured through the whole valley of the Con necticut. To Collins, trty fellow-laborer, I send my best wishes. Ho needs no spur : on the con trary, there are swords which wear out their scab bards. I feel that my letter tells you little. Yet we are here at a most interesting crisis. At the moment when the anti-slavery host seemed falling asun der for want of some definite object, Providence has onened a fresh field for exertion given a new impulse to their zeal. The fountains of the great moral deep are just breaking up. The dawn of new crusade seems breaking over us. ine friends of the slave have cheerfully buckled on their new armor. They have not forgotten the negro only changed ground to serve him more effectually. Into the dark chambers of degraded Brazil, and hard-nearteu America, tne rays m me moralsun can hardly penetrate. Our efforts with some men seem line Dealing tne air newmg porphyry with lead. But India speaks and a Thompson says, ' we need not wait till Portugal is honest, till "America is consistent,' to abolish slavery. Our friends have laid new saenhces on the altar of humanity. George Thompson is known to have put aside the most flattering offers of worldly aggrandizement ana wealtn, to tnrow him self& rich and willing offering into this new cause Uoa bless you.

"How many drink, the cup Of baneful grief, or eat the bitter bread Of misery ! Sore pierced by wintry winds, How many sink into the sordid hut Of cheerless poverty !" It was night the storm howled sadly by and the mother sat in silence by the scanty fire, that warmed and faintly lighted the wretched dilapi dated cottage, once in brighter days her happy home ! She had divided to her starving babes the little pittance of bread remaining to her, yet scarcely sufficing to satisfy the mad cravings ol hunger ! Little thought they that they claimed a mother's all! She hushed their cries, soothed their sorrows, covered them with her tattered mantle, bade them a sad good night, and returned to her sorrowful vigil. The night wore away and still sat the mother over the fading fire she could not replenish, wait- nrr the coming of him whose returning footsteps once caused a thrill of joy through her bosom, and was hailed wiih boisterous glee by his little ones. Once, he promised at the altar to love and cher- h her, and nobly awhile did he redeem the pledge. His cottage was the home of comfort, and his wife and infants divided his love. Bui ah ! how changed ! He had become a drunkard ! His business was neglected home was deserted nd his late return was the harbinger ol woe ! He comes to curse the innocent partner of his misery as the author of his wretchedness, and his frightened children shrunk away Irom him.scream- ng as from fiend. Where waits he now? The shadows of night have long darkened the land scape. What delays his return f Aias, tne low haunt which has nightly witnessed the shamelul revel, now echoes to his frantic shout.

The clock struck the hour of midnight and he came as wont. With a fearful oath he cursed his wife's fond care ; and that mother's silent tears and the low wail of his silent babes went up to God lor witness. Would you know the conclusion of the story ?

The celebrated teacher Rabbi Meir, sat during the whole of one Sabbath day in the public school, instructing the people. During his absence from the house his two sons died, both of them of un common beauty, and enlightened in the law. His wifo bore them to her bed-chamber, laid them upon the marriage lied, and spread a white cover ing over their bodies. In the evening the Rab bi Meir came home. " Where are my two sons," he asked, " that 1 may give them my blessing ? I repeatedly looked round the school, and I did not see them there." She reached to him a goblet. He praised the Lord at the going out of the Sabbath, drank, and again asked " Where are my sons, that thev loo mav drink -r .i .in . vi me- i n u oi oiessinr r -.

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 Tomalo 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 as a vegetable ; I 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 Tbmato Pills will, in a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use aCal omel. I believe that in diseased liver they are more prompt in their tjffect, 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 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. 6lh, 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 : and therefore take great pleasure in recommending them ; as well from a sense of gratitude to the benevolent Proprietor, as with a view of servine 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 fnr many months-; and at length mainly restored to a tolerable degree ol health, though not without an apprehension that I should be similarly afflicted. My feais have been but too well confirmed by 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 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, 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 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 ver" best remedy extant for anv deranrrn, nr .irMinn rf ih. I Liver or Spleen, Billious Affections. Palnitation 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 mv recommendation and solicitation manv of mv friends and acquaintances have taken them aaa family med icine, with perfect success. I grant my permission to use mis as you please. Yours truly, ISAAC VV. AVEflY, 179 William street, From the Rev. I. JV. Sprague, Pastor of the fourth Congregational Church. Hartford, Conn. Dr. G. R. 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. For some time past I have made use of your Compound Tomato Pills, as a substitute tor those medictnes, 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. prefer them for myself and children, to any other medicine 1 have ever used to correct the irregularities of the stomach and bowels. Yours, &c. I. N. SP.RAGUE. 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 as an alternative, in chancing the action of the glandular and absorbent systems, and in renovating the constitution impaired by protracted disease : although, in some cases it may take considerable lime (as it does for all remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full ana complete effects. the nocomnanvinff remarks of Messrs. Chesebroueh & Leonard, will show that the statement of Mr. Vredenburgh is entitled lo our full confidence and is without exaggera tion. Rome, April 27th, 1839. G. R. Phelps, M. D.Dear Sir Herewith we send you the statement of Mr. Andrew Vredenburgh, a very respectable farmer of this town. His case is considered a very remarkable one, and hie statements may bo relied up on with the utmost confidence. Your Pills have fully established themselves in this vi cinity : and the demand for them Is constantly increasing. If desirable, we can send you several other certificates of cures effected by the use of your rills. We remain yours, &o. ChEsEBROUOII St LlONARD. Second Letter from Dr. Eaton, Hated Brookfield, Ms. March 29, 1839. Dr. Phelps Dear Sir Your Pills are in great demand. I have but a few on hand : no one who has taken them but are perfectly satisfied with their beneficial effects in remov ing disease, however long standing. I shall be at Hart ford about the 15th of next month, and I will bring with me a number of certificates frm persons of the first res pectability, of cures which they have performed, some ten, twelve and of twenty years standing.
