THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
POETRY. From the Rural Repository. To an Absent Friend. We ne're may meet again; Yet memory tells of our early years, When sympathy mingled our juvenile tears; When love breathed a sweet enchanting strain, And sorrow ne'er tortured our bosom with pain; When our pathway the inscent of flowers beset, And our hearts were untainted with grief and regret. We ne'ver may meet again; And gambol in joy 'neath the old oa'.i's shade, Where our vows of.affeclion in silence were made; Or gportively play on the flowery lawn, And listen to warbling of birds at the dawn; Or watch the wild bultefly sip the sweet flower, At the scorching heat of the noon day hour. We ne'er'may meet again ; On the shore of the calm, unruffled lake, Where the fleet canoe leaves its glassy wac And play with the pebbles in childish pride, At the stilly hour of evening tide; Or count the stars in the sky above, As they tenderly smiled on our mutual love ! We ne'er may meet again; Though we parted in sorrow, in sadness and tears, Yet we know not the pang of parting for years; The last fond adieu that arose from the heart, Left a sting in the bosom that will not depart; It mourfully echoes where once v.e did roam, And hallows each haunt of our early-loved home ! Havre de Grace, Ma. Sept. 10, 1839. MISCELLANEOUS. Letter of Elizur Wright. Boston, Sept. 24, 1S39. Dear Brother Codding, I am sorry to say 1 cannot be with the young men of Me. on the first of October only inspirit. I need not state the reasons nothing short of an impossibility should deprive me of the pleasure of greeting you and Remond arid scores of other friends, both known and unknown to the outward eye, in the town en deared to us as the home of the father of Maine abolitionism. I hope one or two from this quar ter will be with you who will more than com pensate for my absence. Bid the young men of Maine be of good cour age in this blessed cause. It is not theirs . They are but auxiliaries in it of One whu moves sys tems. He has evidently managed and guided the work from the first. We mortals who have tirdily enlisted at his earthquake calls, do but blow a little at the great anti-slavery fire-brands which He ever and anon, throws down into this niiltw nntinn. It was He that about a score of years ago put a live coal into the heart of Benja min Lundy, as the chained cnfTle parsed him in the streets of Wheeling, which no floods could drown, and which made him truly " the Genius ol Universal Emancipation." That most self-denying man has gone to his rest, but what a flame has he lived to see! Think of the Providence which sent Garrison to Baltimore, there to lash with scorpions, Francis Todd, his own townsman, for freighting his vessel with slaves to be im prisoned and to wake up the sympathies of such men as Arthur Tappan ! Think of the Provi dence which sent Theodore D. Weld, to Alaba ma to ask James G. Birncy by what right he held his slaves, and thus to rouse a conscience which after vainly seeking rest in Colonization, at las! colonized its owner into the front rank of the abo lition host: and of the Providence which sent the same Theodore D. Weld to be a student in Lane Seminary, to kindle a fire which the ablest of Ahithophels could not smother, and which, by his very attempts to smother it, exploded and threw the burning brands over the tops of the Alleglia nies! One of these brands, you will reccollect, fell near Nashville, Tennessee. What commo tion of the elements, as if iEtna had boiled over in the sea ! Law was not enough. Up rose the foundations of society church and slate and in conclave more potent and awful than could be cre ated by law, declared that no man who believed slaveholding a sin should sell "Cottage Bibles" in Tennessee. It was not without cause that slavery gnashed its teeth and blasphemed at the prayer of Amos Dresser. Little wotted the high sheriff of Nashville how those stripes would re echo! Think again of the Providence which made use of a remiss Post Master in New York to send a mass of Anti-Slavery publications all at once into the Post Office of Charleston, whereby it was demonstated that the Federal Government is but the tool of the slave power in all things pertaining to slavery. By that bonfire thousands were converted to abolitonism upon whom the same papers in any other way would have little or no effect; Tho' God tvtnptctli no man to e il he doubtless pften causes men to expose the evil that is in them. Think then of the Providence thai has year after year brought out the slaveholding heart on the floor of Congress. What demoniac demonstrations at the Ithuriel touch of our peti tions! Why, the prudence of a child should have served to teach the south policy of disarm ing us, by granting the comparatively trifling ob ject of our prayers. Had they done it, the na tion would probably have been put to sleep for a century and slavery would have made good the number of its victims in n month. God did no: permit them so to play the hypocrite and now ii is too late. He, Oh young men of Maine, nerv ed the heart of your plorious Lovejoy to die n Martyr to LIBERTY and for LAW. He has formed mntryr spirils even among the daughter of proud South Carolina, and who have planted arrows in the conscience of his nation. ' lie brought to our shores, when the friends of the slave were weak and few, that most wonder ful man of this or any age, George Thompson, pourinsf from his eloquent lips the news that Britain had sealed the death of s'avery throughout an empire on which the sun never sets. And with what sublimity of wisdom has He conducted that whole glorious process in the British Colo nies, which tho moles of our Muckrake philoso phy were pleased to call an "experiment!" It was the other day that He, in the most unexpec ted manner, 8Tit us John Scoble, to tb in three weeks the- work of an age. And now this Gulf Stream has floated on our shores the noble Jingia and his brethren la chains.. The spirit of slave ry sits mute or mutters inatidibly, as if conscious of its meanness. The acclaim of human sympa thy goes up on God's original plan. The nation feels for Jingua, and let enslaved law do what it will, 'ood will brni": out of it eood to the slave. Time and paper would fail me to give a bare cat alogue of the remarkable instances during the last five years in which God lias made tho ene mies of this cause do more for it there i's friends. Will he now forsake it ? He who weighs the mountain in scales ? My hope is not in the unity of abolitionists.. It may be, lor aught 1 know, God's design to split that unity nil to shivers, that He may drive our principles into all the laby rintliine compartments, nooks and crannies of opinion, into which society, from the very nature of man, is divided. The end of our organizations seems to be to work up and apply the riffht ma ch inery, the materials of excitement which the providence of God Iroin time to time present us. This great operation is going on marvellously. It will never cease for scant of materials. God grant that they may soon cease for want of nn ouiect : Let ine just say to the young men of Maine, that among the most wonderful and glorious of God's materials, is, the "Testimony of a thousand witnesses." Such a work could not have been prepared under the ordinary impulses which covem men. My faith is like a rock every time I look at it. The irresistable conviction seizes me that God would not have carried a man through such a labor, unless He designed to prostrate slavery by it. It will be our fault if lie does not. It rejoices me that the abolitionists of Maine have their eyes so clearly open to to their political responsibilities. 1 heir abolitionism is of the prac tical sort. It only needs to grow, and your flour ishing state, which by its 300 miles of sea "coast is made next door neighbor to all the South, will be to slavery like the atmosphere of June to a bela ted snow storm. With a fervent God-speed to your Convention premise your friend on fellow laborer for the slave. E. WRiGHT, Jr. From the Emancipator. The Mission Colony. One of the most surprising delusions we have ever known to prevail among an upright and in telligent people, is that which lias been so exten sively cherished by the American churches, in supposing that a trading, speculating, land-grasp- ing and irresponsible settlement ol Americans on the coast of Africa could exert a beneficial influ ence on the cause of Missions. We are glad to see that delusion beginning to yield to the sad re sults ot experience. I he American Board at Bos ton, has become convinced that the best fields for missions are those most remote from the colonies. In their annual report, reported last month, they say of their West Africnn missions: ' It is of great importance lo the well-being of thj native tribes of Western Africa, that the strongest possible religious influence should bo thrown into the colonics, which are rising into existence and power upon their borders. Other wise the fate of these trihes, notwithstanding the sameness of their color with that of the colonists, will, at no distant period, he that of the natirr tribes of South A frica and of our own country. 1 1 would seem lobe the wisest course to assume the permanencp of those colonies, and their future as cendency over the native tribes, as unquestionable facts, and to form our plans accordingly. It will be impossible to conduct, missions happily and prosperously in the immediate vicinity of the col onies, unless the influence rf I he gospel is predomi nant in them : and their relations with the native communities will necessarily extend and become more and more ituiminte. Of late years it has seemed to the Committee that tiie field, which specially invites our attention, is remote from the colonics, perhaps an;ong the Ashnritce.', and es pecially up the Niger; while at the same time, it will be desirable for us to have a mission of trnid erate :-izc at Cape Pultuns. Indeed, we could hardly maintain an effii icnt mission in the upper countries of the Niger, without having a station at Cape Paltnas, and another somewhere on the Gold Const, to serve as places of rest and accli mation, and as intermediate ports of communica tion.' The Baptist mission in West Afiica is also be coming deeply impressed with the necessity of standing entirely aloof Irom the colony, if they wish to secure such a degree of confidence from the na tives as is necessary In the success of their benev olent designs. The Baptist Advocate, of Oct. 5, contains a letter from Mr. Hilary Tongue, a lead ing colonist, and lately the acting governor of the republic (!) of Bassa Cove, and to the Rev. S. H. Cone, of this city, dated Aug. 12, in which, after referring to the recent war. and its apprehended results in impeding the work of the mission nl Bassa Cove, he says : ' Such has been the wary and prudent course pursued by our missionaries, that in the minds of the natives, they are ' hardly identified with the colcnisls. Though I have no doubt they feel n deep c.incern for t'.ie happiness and prosperity of the colony, ye t they have prudently manifestiid so lit tle connexion with it, and attended so exclusively and incessantly to llicir appropriate duties, that the natives regard them as Iniving an object and interest altogether distinct from those of the colon" In addition, their just mid equitable dealing in all their intercourse u ith the natives, their tender pa ternal treatment of the children under their charge, and their success in instructing them, have con spired in awakening in the minds of the chiefs and head men, an appreciation of the advantages of having missionaries among them, and thu3 of throwing n shield of protection around them. I have riot heaid from them Since tho battle, but I have not the smallest apprehension for their per sonal safety, nor fur the continuance of their ope rations.' We wish our readers to observe, not only the fact, here strongly expressed, that it has been ne cessary for the missionaries lo pursue ' a wary and prudent course,' in order thas they might not bo ' identified vviih the colonists,' in the ininds of the natives; tut also the specified grounds of the contrast which 1ms so decidedly distinguished and disconnected them from the colony.' The reasons why they ore not identified with the colonists are, that they have ' so little connexion with it,' that they ' attend so exclusively to their appropriate duties,' their 'JUST AND EQUITABLE DEALINGS,' and their 'tender and paternal care of the children.' It i not the presence and force of tho colony which has protected the mis sionaries from the natives, but it is there own prudent disconnection with it, that has thrown "a shield of protection around them" against the dan gers caused by the colony. The Methodist mission has been offiieially de clared to be identified with colonization, nnd de pendant on it. So entirely infatuated have its managers been, that the editor of their principal organ has profanely cast off the protection of Je sus Christ, and rested the divine institution of missions upon the weak invention of human pride and prejudice, openly proclaiming that the Metho dist mission stands or falls with the colony ! Yet we find even the Methodist beginning to find the superiority of direct efforts. The fjllowing let ter, from the Rev. Mr. Storker, since deceased, ought to open the eyes of those Methodists who love, truly love the cause of missions, more than they love slavery and prejudice. Mr. Storker was a missionary near the Maryland colony at Cape Palrnas, and his testimony sets at rest the ridiculous notion that the American colonists will be better received by the natives, or conduct better towards them, because both parties are of the same complextion. Brother Storker cries from the grave to the Methodist church, "WE MUST HAVE WHITE MISSIONARIES AND TEACHERS." From the Crislian Advocate and Journal Oct. 4. I have many applications lo take native boys. 1 have taken two; one is about twelve years of age, and the other seven.- The oldest when he came could not speak a word of English. He is notv become my interpreter, can read, and spell, and write his own American name in a good hand. I have refused one. I had two brought me ihis week, nnd have taken them. I cannot refuse them if I have to support them out of my own sal ary. If I remain here you must permit me to ex tend my operations among the heathen. I think, as soon as the rains are over, to go as far as I can into the interior. I have hear many flying re ports respecting the tribes, but by the help of the Lord I intend to see for myself, and not trust to hearsay. If you intend to do any thing among them, to any extent, you must have white mis sionahiES and teachers. There isa great amount of hostility in the heart of the native ogainst a colored man, and they will not pay that respect to them that they will to a white man. I have on my hands nt present work enough for two. I must have help from some place, or I shall be obliged to curtail my plans. Respectfully yours, W. Storker. Mount Emory,"May 31, 1S39. It is gratifying to learn, however, by letters from the Methodist missionaries, that those portions of their mission which are disconnected from the col ony, are enjoying the rich blessings of God, on their direct efiorts for teaching the true religion to the native tribes. A great accession of con verts has been gained among a tribe residing at some distance from the colony. We protest against the fraudulent course of the Hartford Con gregationist, in representing this as a fruit of Colonization. $15. U. K.

A few only of the latest certificates can be inserted here, for numerous others sec 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 ing the Tomato Apple as a vegetable ; I have been induc ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum nal Intcrmitlents, prevalent in this section of the Slates, I have no doubt Dr. Phelps' Compound Tomato Pills will, in a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oCal omki,. I believe that in diseased liver they are more prompt in their e.Tect, 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. 6th, 1838. To R. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used vour Com pound Tomato Pills, the post season, for tho Liver com plaint ; and am happy to mid, with decided benefit : anp therefore ta';e great pleasure in recommending them ; as well from a sense of gratitude to the benevolent Proprietor, as w ith 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 maladv, pronounced by tho 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 of health, though not without an apprehension that I should be similarly afllicted. My fears have been but too well confirmed y afecurrenca of nearly all the symptoms of tins 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, reeling as I did, a repug nance to resorting again to Calomol, and after ineffectually and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professing a specific romody for this complaint, I purchased a box of the Messrs. Sands, Druggists.corner William and Fulton streets duly authorized agents j 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 hnve given them a thorough trial, can cheerfully and unhesitatingly pronounce thein the very best remedy extant for any dcrangemont or affection of the Liver or Spleen, Billions 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 taken them as a family med icine, with perfect success. I grant my permission tp use this as you please. Yours truly, ISAAC V. AVEiJY, 179 William street. From the Rev. I, X. Sprague, Pastor of the fourth if Congregational Church, Hartford, Conn. Dr. G. It. 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 tber 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 for those medicines, and have boon 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 medicine I have ever used to oorrect the irregularities of the stomach and bowels. Yours, iie, I, N. SPAAGUE. 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 changing the action of the glandular and absorbent systems, and in renovating the constitution impaired by protracted disease ; although in some cases il may take considerable lime (as it does for all remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full and complete effects. The accompanying remarks of Messrs. Chesebrough & Leonard, will show that the statement of Mr. Vredenburgh is entitled to ou full confidence and is without exaggeration. JJome, 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 his statements may be 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 effee'ed by the use of your Puis. We remain yours, &c. Chesebrough & Leonard. Second Letter from Dr. Eaton, dated Broottfield, 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, the one las mentioned is a Mr. Luther Stowell of South Brook field who has had a carious ulcer of a most formidable kind and has never been one day without bandaging his leg from the oot to the knee. His certificate I shall bring with me.' Please send me six dozen boxes more, on the receipt of this, and oblige, Yours, &c. J. E. Eaton. SCyFor a full account of this most interesting discove ry, testimonials, mode of operations, &c, see pamphlets, which may be had gratis of all who sell these Pills. None are genuine without the written signature of G R. Phelps, M. D., 6ole proprietor, Hartford. Conn. CAUTION. The unprecedented popularity of these Pills has induced several persons to prefix the name of lo' mato PilU to their various preparations, evidently with the intention of deceiving those enquiring for Phelps' Tomato Pills. The Public cannot be too cautious to avoid all these anomalous ' Tomato Pills' and Extracts of Tomato,' nor too particular to observe that the original and only genuine Compound Tomato Pills, are signed by the Proprietor, U. R. PHELPS, M. D., Hartford, Conn. JCPORDERS directed to SILAS BURBANK, Jr., or G. W. BARKER, Montpelier, Vt.
