THE VOICE OF FREEDOM.
POETRY. AUTUMN. 'Tis an autumnal cvo the low winds, sighing To wet, leaves, rustling as they hasten by; The eddying gusts to tossing waves replying, And ebon darkness filling all the sky ; Tho moon, pale mistress, palled in solemn vapor, Tha rack, swift, wandering through the void nbove, As I, a dreamer by my lonely taper, Send back to fueled hours tho plaint of love. Blossoms of peace, once itiiny pathway springing. Where have your brightness and your splendor gone ? And Thou, whose voice came sweet to mo as singing, What region holds thee, in the ast Unknown? What star far brighter than the rest contains thee, Beloved, (Departed empress of my heart.' What bond of full beatitude enchains thee, In realms unveiled by pen, or prophet's art? Ah! loved and lost! in these autumnal hours, When fairy colors duck tho paintod tree, When (he vast woodlands seem a sea of flowers. Oh! then my sou!, exulting, bounds to thee! Spring, as to clasp thee yet in this existence, 1 Yet to behold thee at my lonely side. But the fund vision my Its at once to distance, And my sad heart gives echo she has died! Yet! when the morning of her years was brightest, That angol-preeence into dust went down; m While yet with rosy dreams her rest was lightest, Death for the olive,-wove tho cypress crow n; Sleep which no waking knows, o'came her bosom, Spared in her bower connubial one fair blossom They bore her spirit to the upper skies. There let me meet her, when, life's struggles over, The pure in love and thought their faith renew; Where Earth's forgiving and redeeming lover Spreads out bis paradise to every view Let the dim Autumn, with its leaves descending, Howl on tho water's verge yet Spring will come : So feed my soul, no more 'gahisl fate contending, With all It loveth, shall regain its home. Knickerbocker. MISCELLANEOUS. The Hard Times The attempts which have been made by the cot tonocracy to counteract the laws of trade, by for cing up the credit of slaveholding institutions and the price- of slave-grown products, has recoiled upon the commercial and manufacturing interests of the county with a fearful and desolating crash And the end is not yet. Our readers will remem ber the crv that arose in it.j-i atrainst the ato litionists in New York, Newark, Cincinnatti, for jeoparding our 'Northern Trade.' Well, after the suspension- in 1&37, the debtors in the free States set themselves to work with such a fixed determination to pay their debts, that in a year their credit va3 quite restored, that they were ready to do business again, on a safe system of more limited trust, but the planters, who are good paymasters in good times, have no notion of putting themselves in any great inconvenience about payments when money is scarce. And at the same time, the high pressure system of slave ry hardly allows a curtailment. And moreover, it was intolerable to the dignity of planters, thai their crops should have to fall in price, iust like tha products of the "white slaves" of the North. A 'combination wa3 thereupon formed, having the threefold object, to keep up the price, of cotton, to resuscitate and sustain the credit ot southern banks and merchants, and to induce the slavehol ders to turn their trade to Philadelphia, instead of coming to be dunned lor their old debts m funv York. The United States Bank of Pennsylvania, was the " great legulator" to accomplish these magnificent proposals: tne "Cotton Circulars nnd conventions a part of tho machinery. Things went on finely for a lima, Philadelphia- exulted in her southern trade, and New York merchants sighed over the deuline of that important branch ot our city s commercial greatness. Jiut, one day, it came out, that tha United States Bank .could not psy their notes ; and when it "suspen ded animation, so extensive had been its cornice lions, that the whole commercial world has felt, very much as a man would feel were n large tu mor on his shoulder to be drawn out by the roots. The effect on this city has been, to produce a greater scarcity ot money, cc more extensive com m rcial derangement, than was ever known before. The banks here have wisely, resolved to continue their payments, but have curtailed their discount to a very low point, and hundreds of merchants wno, a lew weeks ago, were in prosperous circnm stances, ore now making enormous sacrifices to obtain money. But the spirit of the slavehol- nincr rlnmnn ia nnl vpt Immhlnrl. In llio tnidc.t of the general dismay, no opportunity is lost sight of (rt nnv cnnpl tn thn clnvonpi-ni.tr nr tr. men t m-wl crush the friends of equal liberty. A curious il lustration of this spirit may be seen in the follow ing statement of proceedings-connected with the meetings of the merchants to consult about the means of relief. On the 21th October there was a meeting of merchants, manufacturers, and mechanics at the City Hotel, said by the Commercial Advertiser to be, probably, the largest of the class ever held this city, to hear a report ofa committee appointed at a previous meeting, ng, to confer with the officers . b . . .... I of the Banks, to induce them to increase their dis counts, and receive and pay bills of the Safety Fund Banks of this State at par. The following is the report, tiy Colonel Stone, and of the re marks of one of tho speakers, with some cor rections, and it is worthy of observation, that although most of the daily papers published the' rroeedinrs at leneth. not oneof them, the Com- morcial Advertiser, excepted, d.aked to report the allusion to the colored congregation as it was made at the meeting. The reporters were afraid, it would seem, that a correct report would scent of abolition, and, therefore, suppressed the point or the anecdote in obedience to the dark spirit of slavery that has brooded over the commercial me- tropolis. lWr.T.Pwi T.mnrin nddrpn,! tho mootmo-nr.d said he rose to submit a motion, that a committee be nrwointed to make an immediate- renuest to the Banks, that thev will take measures to hold n Convention of all the banking institutions of the city jo. the course of to-morrow, with a view of Increasing their discounts, and affording such oth er relief as the crisis requires. He said he had listened with doep interest to the letters which had been road to the meeting, convened to take into consideration the unprecedented and alarming state ol the mercantile community, nnu muu-.i the tenor of many, of them was very gratifying yet it was apparent that trie tone ot umeis tun.i find llttln moppet of relief. One of the banks tlmt hns-PYnrnssfid itself most willing and anxious to do everv thinar it can for the mechanics, has this day .refused to discount a note, with umjues lirmnlile names, the president declaring to the np plicant that it was their intention to discount small notes onlv, nnd these to a limited amount. lie wished, in the observations he might make, to avoid saving anything that might appear like did; lion to the banks, as lo the course of policy they ought to pursue in this exigency. Jl was nppa rent that great distress prevailed, and he did not recco'lect, during a tnirty years business ns merchant, n lime when this distress was so alarm ing as at the present moment. He could well np prcciate what the merchants who now throna this hall, and had listened with such intense inter est lo ihe answers which had been read lo thern feci on, the rubject. lie sympathised with them and felt sure that every person who heard him that had flesh in his heart and notes to nay at the bank's, had never known a more alarming moment than the present. He said it wna in vain to disguise it. The merchants, manufacturers and mechanics of this city would not have assembled there, had not extreme necessity drawn them to it as it was well known that they will put forth ex traordinary efforts to sustain their credit, and the commercial interests of the city, and not assemble to take measurs for relief until forced to do it by unavoidable circumstances. He trusted it would not be considered egotisiical or bonsling if lie mentioned on that occasion when they had met to compare feelings and speak of each others' sit uation that one house, since the suspension Dad redeemed asi.uuu.uuu ot its promises bcsulc's paying m cash 81,500,000 to llie impor ters m this city for new purchases not altogeth er from its own strength, but nided by the gener ous support ana sy mpatn v which it had received Irom many whom he now saw in the hall. Loud cnecrs. The letters that have been read this evening some naugnty ana oincrs n !,.-nl n r dinn n,1 IVT- Tapnan, reminded him of an anecdote which tie would aslc permission to relate. 1 here was, in Boston, a vjry respectable clergym in-t colored man by the name of Paul (half suppressed murmurs.) It was customary fur the clergymen of the other churches in Boston, to preach an an nua! sermon in that colored church, in rotation, a ll,u t0 remarked that, you could always tell who was the preacher and what his character, by tho ,ext he- too!i for his discourse. For in- stance, there was a preacher, a man of great self consequence and rotundity ot person, who took lor his text "Scr ranis obey your 'masters." Great applause. And lheio-vns another mer chant, in the same city, a mild, amiable man, who when he preached to the congregation mvIio con- considered themselves oppressed, took for.s text. I cnlrecl. you as Lrctiren." Continued ap plause. I Mr. i. said he w ished he could see in all these letters from the banks the spirit of this latter text, lie would conclude by repeatinc the resolutions he had proposed, hoping that the same committee would be appointed to wait on tho offi cers of the banks, and request them to meet to morrow evening, for the necessity admits of no tie- lay, and procrastination is death lo the merchants of New York. Cheers. Mr. inppan said that, on the part of the house of which lie was a member, he could say that their indebtedness to the banks, at the present moment, was not over twenty per cent, on what it has averaged during the last two years although they had lately made many nnd urgent applications for accommodation and this, said he, is perhaps the ca?e with many other merchant.-. lie then moved the resolution, as given above which was seconded by General Lloyd, and unanimously adopted. It appears by the daily papers that, m publishing an account of the meeting the editor of the Cour ier and Enquirer the notorious James Watson Webb, took occasion to vilily JUr. lappnn in his paper in his characteristic, strain, and with the in tention, as it afterwards appeared, to stir up popu lar violence against hnn. His abuse and threats, however, passed unheeded. At the adjourned meeting ot the merchants, ;lr. 1 appan1 oiiered a set ot resolutions, winch were unanimously adopted. When he roje to speak, a considerable number of persons, headed by a retanur of W ebb, hissed, and continued to do so until the deafening applause of a large majority of the audience, si lenced them. On Mond.iy, James Watson Webb, while forced lo insert th? resolutions, an.! make mention of the "abolitionist" who offered them, continued his strain of abuse, and hoped the re-j eption Mr. lapnan met, at the meeting, would be a lesson to him. It doubtless will. Both he, and thousands besides, witnessed the total dL'- kor,lfitre f political demagoge and purchased Lul" in nttcmnting to prevent a merchant Irom part in the proceedings tf a meeting of merchants, because he is obnoxious to nro-slavery men, among us, on 'he question of slavery. Mr Webb had also the matchless impudence ti say, a man cannot idently himsclt with incendiary ng nation, and maintain his position ns a member of the commercial community." He said this vears ago, and is now forced to chronicle the falsifica tion of his own prediction. We remember a nota- U'G '"""ent in the history ol abolition, at the lime ul 11 ..'

Gentlemen, Seeing the vcrv high estimation held forth by the Agent in this section, and by those who had the op portunity of trving 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 loinalo Apple as a vegetable ; 1 have been induc ed to try this medicine in various diseases. In the Autum nal Intermiltcnls, prevalent in this section of the States, I have no doubt Dr. Phelps Compound loniato Pills will, in a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use oj Cal. om EI.. 1 believe that m diseased liver thov are more prompt in their effect, and as efficient, as Calomel I have tried them in various other diseases, as .Rheumatism, Dys pepsia, Jaundice, &c, with tho moat happy efiects. As far as my knowledge extends, I have no hesitancy in rec ommending them as a highly valuable, ramily Medicine. i ours respectfully, THOMAS JOHNSTON. From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated New York, Nov. (ith, 1S:1S. To R. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used vour Com pound Tomato Pills, the past season, for the Liver com plaint ; anu am happy to aud, with decided bcnelil : aim therefore ta'ce great pleasure in recommending them ; as well from a sense of gratitude to the benevolent Proprietor, as with a view of serving tho 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 maladv, 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 lo a tolerable decree 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 tins dreadful malady the past summer ; when accidentally I heard of vour Pills, and learning something of their prop erties nnd 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 ufter ineffectually and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professing a specific remedy for this complaint, I purchased a box of tho Messrs. bands, Druegists.corncr 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 tlieir henlittg afficacy and curative effects and now that I have given them u thorough trial, can cheerfully and unhesitatingly pronounce them the very best remedy extant lor any derangement or aitection of the Liver or Sjdecn, Millions Jtjjcctions, Palpitation of the Heart, or Dyspepsia in any of its forms : also as a eood family medicine, are the best with which I am acquainted. At mv recommendation and solicitation many of my fi iends nnd acquaintances have taken them as a family med icine, with perfect success. I grant mv permission to use this as you please. Vours truly, ISAAC W. AVKiV, 179 William street. From the Rev. I. Jf. Spraeuc, Pastor of the fourth Congregational C hurch, Hartford, Conn. Dr. O. . 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 ubc lias been greatly benc- liciul in preserving our health, l or some time past I have made use of vour 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 medicine I have ever used lo correct tho irregularities of the stomach and bowels. Vours, &c. I. N. SPJJAGUE. 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 Is 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 it mav take considerable lime (as it does for nil remedies which operate as alternatives) to produce its full and complete cllccts. J. he accompanying remarks of Messrs. Chcsebrough & Leonard, will show that the statement of Mr. Vrcdcnburgli is entitled to our full confidence and is without exaggera tion. -Home, April 27th, 1839. G. R. Phelps, M. D. Dear Sir Herewith we send you the statcme'it of Mr. Andrew Vredenburgh, a very respectable farmer of this town.

PROSPECTUS OF A NEW PERIODICAL DENOMINATED THE IBIS; OR MORAL EXPURGATOR, AND SCIEN TIFIC AND LITERARY EXPOSITOR. fT is in contemplation to commence tho issue ofa semi monthly Periodical, upon the first of January, 1840, with the foregoing unique cognomon, and which is design ed to be entirely original, and to be presented to its patrons in the state of a well executed royal octavo of sixteen double-column page' amounting, in the year, to nearly one thousand of ' ordinarily presented in the book form ; constituting : volume which, it is intended shall be a : useful as nmplc, and which is offered to subscribers, u; the uncompensalory price of two dollars a yar, payable, however, nnexceptioniibly in advance. Tho object of the present enterprise is not to create a substitute for those more elaborate, volumiuous and supe rior Periodicals, with which persons who are able may be abundantly supplied from abroad; but to afford a cheap and convenient vehicle for recording and circulating the roadable lucubrations of our sectional Literati; and which,, wo hope, will be, the more abundantly elicited in the char acter of manuscript contributions, by the proffered opp or tunity for promulgation. The character of the work is designed to bo neither tl c ological, political, sectarian nor partial; and, therefore, open lo universal, chaste discussion and recuperative irony. Its columns are intended to be, mostly, appropriated to tho investigation of physical and intellectual humanity; lo the contemplation of man as a moral and social being, whelm ed in responsibilities, ignorance and delinquency, witli their, inevitably, disastrous consequences; to expose find reform the ignorance, error and vices of society, by reflec ting, convincingly, upon each, its deformity, hazards and catastrophies, and to scourge or ridicule, both, fashionable and unfashionable licentiousness and folley, out of credit with their votaries, and out of humor with themselves: In line, it is intended as an oracle, through which, truth may be fearlessly uttered; and in whose responses, Virtue shall find ample encouragement to emulation, while Vice shall see Mene Tekel written on every wall of its habitation. These are the self-cvidently , laudable objects, for the at tainment of which our contemplated periodical is lo be in stituted; and, for whose encouragement, we would, confi dently, yet courteously, present our claim to public patron age; not.however, without the provision of its being cheer fully relinquished, whenever the value of the work shall have failed to justify its continuance.
