THE VOICE OF P
REEDOM. POETRY. The Fugitive Slave's Apostrophe to the North Star. BI REV. JOHN PIEKPOINT. Star of the North f though night winds drift, The fleecy drapery of the sky, Between thy lamp and me, I lift, Vea, lift with hope, my sleepless eye To the blue heights wherein thou dwellest ; And, of land of freedom tellesl. Star of the North ! while blazing day , Fours round me its full tide nf light, And hides thy pale but faithful ray, I, too, He hid, and long for night; For night : I dare not walk at noon. Nor dare I trust the faithless moon. Nor faithless man, whose burning lust For gold hath riveted my chains; Nor other leader can I trust But thee, of even the starry train; For all the host around thee burning, Like faithless man, keep turning, turning. I may not follow where they go; Star of the North, I look to thee While on I press : for well I know Thy light and truth shall set me free: Thy light thai no poor slave decoiveth ; Thy truth, that all my soul believeth. They of the East beheld the star That over Bethlehem's manger glowed; With joy they hailed it from afar, And followed where it marked the roaJ. Till, where its rays directly fell. They found the Hope of Israel. Wise were the men who followed thus The star that sets men free from sin! Star of the North! thou art to us Who're slaves because we wear a skin Dark as is Night's protecting wing Thou art to us a holy thing. And we are wise to follow thee; I trust thy steady light alone, Star of the North! thou seem'st to ma To turn before the Almighty's throne. To guide mo through these forests dim, And vast, to liberty and HIM. Thy beam is ox the glassy breast Of the still spring, upon whose brink I lay my weary limbs to re9t, And bow my parched lips to drin'.', Guide of the friendless negro's war, I bless thee for this quit ray '. In the dark top of southern pines I nestled, when the driver's horn Called to the field, in lengthened lines. My fellows, at the break of morn. And there I lay till thy sweet face Looked in upon "my hiding place." The tangled cane-brake, where I crept For shelter from the heat of noon, And where, while others toiled, I slept Till wakened by th3 rising moon, As its stalks felt the night wind free. Gave me to catch a glimpse of thee. Star of the North I in bright array. The constellations round thee sweep, Each holding on its nightly way, Rising, or sinking in the deep, And, as it hangs in mid heaven flaming. The homage of some nation claiming, 77113 nation to the Eaglecowers; Fit ensign! she's a bird of spoil; Like worships like! for each devours The earnings of another's toil. I've felt her talons and her beak, And now the gentler Lion seek. The Lion, at the Virgin's foet Crouches, and lays his mighty paw Into her lap! an emblem meet Of England's Qjieen, and English law:- Queen, that hath made her Islands frco! Law, that holds. out its shield to me! Star of the North! upon that Bhicld Thou shinest Oh! forever shine! The negro, from the cation field Shall, then, beneath its orb recline, And feed the Lion, couched before it, Nor heed the Eagle, screaming o're it. ! The constellations Aquila, Leo and Virgo are here meant by the astronomical fugitive. MISCELLANEOUS. Extract of a letter from the Rev: E. W. Clark, Missionary at. the Sandtvich Islands, to Eev. S. McKeen, of Belfast, Maine. Canton, China, June 5, 1S39. This great city, Canton, presents many won ders to the traveller from any other part ol the world. Such a mass of human beings, both on land and watt:, I never before beheld. I have crowded through the narrow streets, gazing at new and strange wonders, until the eye became weary with seeing, and the ear with hearing. Yesterday 1 went out with Dr. Parker, to visit one or twoBudhistic temples. We passed through a succession of narrow streets, six to eight feel wide, lined with shops entirely open in front; the streets being sometimes nearly covered over head. On our way we called at a mill where animal power, instead of water, was used to propel the machinery. Twenty millstones, turned by ns many bullocks, were crowded into a very small space. The millstones were arranged in a row, and the rapid and circular motion of the bullocks, passing each other in different directions, and the bolts kept in motion by the feet of men, presented quite a noval and animated scene. I was struck with the indications of industry in every direc tion, and with the skill displayed in all kinds ol handicraft. The temple which we visited was a low building, of grey colored brick, with many apartments' and open spnees adorned with a great variety of trappings. The entrance was guarded on both sides by huge images, in human shapa. A sort of iron fur.iace contained the ashes of the Japer burned by the devotees, and another the os.'. sticks, (a sort of lighted taper, which meets the eye at every turn.) Almost every shop has a little miniature fire place by the door, where these little sticks are standing on end, lighted up at evening as a mark of devotion. There has been a great commotion here of late, in consequence of the severe measures adop ted by the Chinese liovernmeni to stop ine opi um trade. All foreigners were confined to their factories, (rather fplendid prisons.) for six weeks; their servants were all ordered to leave th-ein ; a:id of course they were obliged to be their own waiters The innocent anil guilty were all treat ed alike. They are now released, and the Enr lish Commissioners here, and nearly all the mer chants have left Canton and are now at Macao. Opium to the amount, of ten millions of dollars, and more, has been given up to tho Chinese Government. The week is fixed upon for its destruction. A large pit is digging, into which the opium, amounting to more than two thousand boxes, is to be thrown, mixed up with quick lime, salt, dec. one. A good lesson to teach Christian nations how to treat the equally pernicious article, rum. r oreigners all say that 'opium is a very bad thing as here used; but they feel that they have cause to complain of the arbitrary and oppressive acts of the Chinese.' What the end will be. is yet uncertain. Things wear rather a warlike as pect, at present. Dr. Parker has just received a letter from Mr. GutzlaiT, warning him to flee from Canton Sodom as he calls it, before the storm comes. But we feel no special appre hension just now, 1 expect to return to Macao in a few days ; and thence to the Islands in a week or two and lenve my family at Honolulu, whtre they will probably remain till I return. Much love '. your family and other friends. Yours, affectionately, E. W. CLARK. From the Liberator. Letter from George Thompson. Manchester, Sept. 17, 1S39. Mij Dear Garrison : This morning brought mo by way of my belov ed homo, the Liberator down to the lGih ultimo. Soon after I had devoured the news thus furnish ed me, I met a friend in the street, who informed me that he was returning to the U. S. in a few days. Through hiinI send this hasty token of unfailing remembrance and affectionate interest. Though separated far from you, my eye and heart are upon you. My imagination annihilates the space between us, and brings me to your side. Oh how I long to see you once again. I have no more ardent wish connected with things temporal, and my own personal gratification, than to tread once more the shores of America, and see face to face the abolitionist host now multiplied and marshalled, and proceeding onward, to victory You will readily believe that my heart has been deeply pained by the dissensions that have sprung up within the camp more than by all the fiirv and smoke and malignant attacks of your uncivil ized foes without. If it be possible, ' let brotherly love continue.' At all events, he well assured that the step taken (whatever it may be) is de manded by the interests of your bleeding client the cause of truth which you are pledged to sus tain, and the glory of that God whose servant you are. It is now long since 1 have been refreshed by the sight of your hand writing, and if you can find time and strength to write me, you may be sure that I shall hail a letter from you with the sineerest delight. I want to write yon a. long letter respecting our present movement in reference to British India. Its bearing upon your question is most important. A few years will, I hope; prove that we have put our hands to one of the. most powerful lovers for the overthrow of slavery and the slave trade. Ever believe me, Your ever faithful friend, GEORGE THOMPSON. CT A correspondent of the Liberator, writing from Manchester, (Eng.) says: " I crossed the Atlantic, as you know, in com pany with that firm friend of the slave, and elo quent advocate of the rights of the slave, John iicoblc, whose visit to the United States will be long remembered for the happy effect produced by his public addresses, in calling the attention ol our blind and bewildered people to the safety of immediate-emancipation, as aemonsirateu in the West India Islands, and in urging us to apply the same remedy for euro of slavery, if not through out the States, at least in the District of Colum bia where, it is admitted even by many slave ites, we have a right to interfere. There was also among the passengers another anti-slavery friend from New York, Rev. G. R. Haswell, who visits Europe for the benefit of his health. The Liver pool had sixty three passengers in all, and among them were two Marylandcrs, one Virginian, one Mississppi slaveholder, and saveral West India proprietors. With such characters in our compa ny, you may readily conclude that the subject of slavery was sure to be brought on the tapis. Emancipation in the West Indies was one day introduced at the table. The West Indies, of course, took the lead in the conversation. Thev prophesied the total ruin of the colonies as the result of the folly of freeing the "niggers." The blacks, they said, were lazy and would not work; ihey had grown insolent to the whites ; to elevate them was pronounced an impossibility; they were evidently a different race from our own ; a mark of inferiority had been placed upon them by God himself, and they were intended to be under tho sulfectitn to the whites. The West Indians were fierce in their denunciations of the anti- slavery people. Now all the above is what every slaveholder aiv.l every pro-slavery man says, whenever he engages in conversation on the sub ject, being instigated thereto by the father of the system which they are endeavoring to sustain. I5r. acoble soon began to probe them, and under his searching operation they were soon forced to make the following important admissions, which 1 noted down at tho time, word for word, as they were ut'ered. 1st. That slavery was sinful. 2d. There can be no question that emancipa tion greatly benefitted the tierroes. 3d. The internal commerce of the Island of Jamaica lias greatly increased since emancipa tion. 4th. The commercial and trading interests are in a more healthy state than they have ever been before. Thus we have a corroboration from the lips of tne lormer masters, ot the truth ol Ur. Scoble s statement to the public, and the information we have received from anti-slavery friends in that Island. I do not pretend to give you a full report of the conversation; it continued for several hours, and excited a good deal of interest both among the passengers and officers of tho ship : and I am per suaded that many who heard, have a better understanding of the present condition of the black population of the Islands, than all the com mercial reports, with which the London papers are weekly crowded, can give them in a twelve month. I cannot foibear mentioning one circumstance. The Mississippi slaveholder, after the conversa tion above alluded to was at an end, spoke to ft sympathizing friend about the cut-throat abolition ists; he only wished he could get them in his country he would show them what Lynch law could do! These men, said he, tell men that slavery is wicked, but if they will only let me alone, I am not afraid but I .shall go to Heaven as soon as any of them. ''No, sir," answered Mr. Scoble, who overheard the remark, " You never can enter Heaven if you die a slaveholder. You are guilty of the blackest crime with which man can be stained. Go home, sir, and repenl ; eman cipate your slaves, pay them for the labors of years, which you have iniquitously extorted from them, and then a-k God to forgive you ; perad venture he will hear. Then, and not till then, have you any prospect of nn entrance into Heav en." The slaveholder retired to the fore cabin. About an hour afterwards, I went down, and there lie was declaiming about the indignity he had re ceived, and commenting upon the advice to eman cipate. " Let my niggers free," he exclaimed, "and go into the fields and work, and make my self a beggar for the abolitionists ! Pay them for their work besides! The fellow is mad. I should like to hear him tell rne again I ni;int repent. I am as near Heaven as he is," &cw. Thi3 man was in a perfect phrensy, which continued for an hour."

Gentlemen, Seeing the very high estimation held forth bv the Aaent 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 a3 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, 1 have no doubt Dr. Phelps Compound lomato I ills will, in a great measure, if not entirely supersede the use Cal omei.. I 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 iiheumatism, 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 flledicine. Yours respectfully, THOMAS JOHNSTON. From a gentleman of high respectability ; dated New York, Nov. 6th, 1838. To jR. G. Phelps, Dear Sir : I have used your Com pound Toh.ato Pills, the past season, for the Liver Com plaint ; and am happy to add, with decided benefit : anp 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 tho 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 for 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 fears 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 lo Calomel, and after ineffectually and unsuccessfully trying other medicines professiug 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 for any derangement or affection of the 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 a! my friends and acquaintances have taken them S3 a family med icine, with perfect success. I grant my permission to use this as you please. Yours truly, ISAAC W. AVFilY, 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 (or 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-. 1 prefer them for myself and children, to any other medicine I have ever used to correct the irregularities of the stomach and bowels. Yours, &c. I. N. SPiJAGUE. 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 it may take considerable time (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 ."ilr. Vredenburgh is entitled to our full confidence and is without exaggera tion. .Rome, April 27th, 1839. G. JR. 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 effected by tho use of your Pills. We remain yours, &c. Chesebrough & Leonard. Second Letter from Dr. Eaton, dated Brookfield, Ms. March 29, 1S39. Dr. Phelps Dear Sir Your Pills are in greatdemand. 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 poctability, of cures which they have performed, some ten, twolve and of twenty years standme. The one las mentioned is a Mr. Luther Stowell of South Brookfield 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.

PROSPECTUS OF A NEW PERIODICAL DENOMINATED THE ' IBIS;- OR MORAL EXPUEOATOR. AND SCIEN fcTIFIC AND LITERARY EXPOSITOR. T is in contemplation to commence the issue of a sem monthly Periodical, upon the first of January. 1840. with the forezoing unique cognomon,and which is design ed to be entirely original, and lo be presented to its patrons in the state of a well executed royal octavo of sixteen double-column pages, amounting, in the year, to nearly one thousand of those ordinarily presented in the book form; constituting a volume which) it is intended, shall be as useful as ample, and which is offered to subscribers, t the uucompensalory price of two dollars a year, payable however, unexceptionably in advance.. The object of the present enterprise is not to create! suV.lilute for those more elaborate, volumiuous and supe rior Periodicali!, with which persons who are able may be abundantly supplied from abroad; but to afford s cheap and convenient vehicle fur recording and circulating tlie readable lucubrations of our sectional Literati; and which, wo hope, will be, the more abundantly elicited in thechar acter of manuscript contributions, by the proffered opror unity for promulgation. The character of the work is designed to be neither ll ec ological, political, seclaiian nor partial; and, therefore open to universal, chaste discussion and recuperative irony, lis columns are intended tobe, mostly, appropriated to the investigation of physicul and intellectual humanity; lo the contemplation of mau.au a moral and social being, whelm ed in responsibilities; ignorance and delinquency, with their, inevitably, disastrous consequences; to expose and 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 credtt with their votaries, andfout of humor with themselves: In fine, 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 sec Mene Tekel written on every wall of its habitation. These are the self-evldently, laudable objects, for the at tainment of which our contemplated periodical is to be in stituted ; and for whose encouragement, we would, confl 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 havo Iailed to justify its continuance.
