THE ANTI-SLAVERY BUGLE.
The New Costume.
We aro compelled to LcUcvc, that fir once
fashion, U about to do a scnsiblo thing. Wc
have been a silent, but deeply interested specta-
tor o( the progress of tho propose! change in
Female dross. Wo Itavo been silent, because
tho work has been n-sumod !v thoso and thoso
nly cnpablo of its accomplishment. Had re
formers commenced its advocacy on tho ground
of physiological an! moral necessity, years
could not hare secured the co-o; cration of tlio
pres., as weeks, havo done under tlie influences,
that arc now bearing onward this reform. The
Health an! fadhim of the country linvc com
menced the work. Wc presume tliul the desired
perfection of costume is not yet attuined, cilher
in regnrd to convenience crmfirt or elegance.
But from tho despotic throne of fishiun ti c
mandnto lias been issued for cwiji-and the
intelligence and good sense that now pervades
tho community th.t now points woman to n
broader sphere and a nobler destiny than any to
which her sex has beforo aspired w ill perfect
tho work. Woman in assuming, as she is now
about to do, her individuality nnJ responsibility
in nil tho organizations of society, will natun.l
ly and of necessity drop tho badges and clogs
appropriate to her past dependent position.

I ran carry as much as any man, and can cat as
much too, if 1 cun get it. I am as strong us nny

is, if womun have a pint and man a quart why

not be afraid togivo u our rights for fear wo

Why children, if yon have w oman's lights givo

When I. izarui died, Mary and M utha camo to

Case of the People in Saul.
BY REV. GEO. H. CHEEVER.
One of the most instructive instances of
disobedience lo inhuman nnd imriuhleous
law, is In he lomul in the case ol (be I'coplu
VS. H ml, in beh.ill of Jonathan. The popu
lar adjudication of ibis ease, simply by muled
moral power, nnd tho peneelul iehny of
equity over unrighteous law, aro recorded in
the J ltli chapter ol the 1st hook of Samuel.
The monarch had eoniiuaiided (bat tlirouuh-
out the day ol battle, no loud should be eaten
till the c oning. Jonathan heard tail when
bis liilhor charged the oeonle w ith Ibis nail,:
mid when they encountered n quantity ol
honey in their march, be init linth hj. i'.,,.
mill eat of il ; and when the people, iulurmed
him of thu curse, thou said Jonathan. Mi
fulhtr Li Hi tiouk'tJ Ike land. Nevertheless,
thus tar, though Hie ex.ieliou was severe and
injmioiis, llio people uls-ycil, each ono pa
tiently enduring lur himself llio personal in
convenience. Jlut when il came to nn immnratltj requir
ed ol tliein, or to their consent demanded to
nn net of injustice und cruelly again.-.! an in
noceiil person, they nnhcdly and resolutely
refused obedience. When mi inquest was
held as lo the proceedings of the day, then
Ihe King swore n great oath, thai in whoso
ever Ihe sin bad been liiuud that day, though
it were in Jonathan biuiseli, be tdiuuhl sure
ly die. Kut there was nut n man among nil
the people who answered him. They onlv
said, in calm determination, (j'o on with thy
trial ns seeineth good unto thee. So when the
truth was know n, Saul imsweied, CIod dn so.
nnrf more n'so,J'ur thou skull sure'; tlir, Jowilh-m.
Kill now was the people's lino ; ami willi
ns united mid resolute a personal ilisobc.iitnce,
when this inhumanity was required ol llieiii.
ns ihe patient obedience which they hail ex
ercised w hen the thing required of them was
simply their own iilisiiueucu Irom loud, they
Heel ircil, one linn till, mat tins should not ho.
As they had id, stained Irom loud ill obeying
thu King's coiuiiiiitiiliiieul, so now Ibey
would atisl.iiu Ii nm sin iiuninsi (.joD.niul Jj.
ob'j it. It was . i plain case of buy iig.insl
molality, nml morality egiin.-t law. 'And
the H'cple said unto 'S ml, Sb.dl Jonathan
die. who has wrought this great salvution in
Israel' (Jodlbibnl! As llio Lord livelli,
Ibcre shall not one hair of bis head fall to
tho ground; lor he bulb wrought with Cod
his day. So the prop'.e rescued Jonathan, (hut
he Hied not.'
Now ibis is noi n mere common roso nf
disobedience to u civil statute, but it was
flat, downright, peaceable mutiny. Jt was n
martial law as well as civil, under which
limy were held nl Saul's supreme command,
both ns King nnd (Jenernl ; but, if in any
particular, S.iul commanded what was im
ptst beliiiu Und, their duly was lo disobey it.
Every one nl them, without exception, pro
ving liiithl'ul lo Chid, Saul could do notlmi!
nt id! with llieiii. Ho could not find a sinclo
individual to execute bis unjust command :
mill this being the case, seeing so enlui, uni
versal, hiui resolutu ii disoliedienee, lie dared
not attempt lo execute it himscit; The peo
ple needed nothing in sueli a case, liir victo
ry of thu right, but simple, disoh.-dieucu to
tho wrong. No violence was requisite, nor
nny appeal to ii. Their united will was e-
liougli to maku the execution ol'lhe mandate
ol'lhe tyrant impossible. It wasn peaceful,
triumphant viclory, oi equity over unrighteous
Law, by simple disobidienc'e, by simply refu-
Mug lo obey man when bu required that
which wns contrary lo (jod.
Now if this spirit everywhere prevailed, if
it wero well known that men would not oiry
unjust law, mid that men's consciences could
not be bought or corrupted, to In: instruments
in executing it, such n thing ns unjust law
would soon cease out of existence. The
most tyrannical government would bo shorn
of its power; for even Nero could not have
imprisoned or beheaded the whole people of
