hr Jabaaon, te, word wh.ch atira like the tound of
tec trumpet, many a heart in our land.
Tire meet ai.cu.vl garment waa tha tunic; which
•ns a sort «f gown fitted-to Ihe form, having abort
rteevre and a girdle Tb.» waa worn by both sexes.
IIMW were two kinds at girdle; one of leather and
••cured by Claepe, the other of cloth; both
eiBpkryed as purses, having an opening through
which money could be inserted. Whet, a person
fa«d no garment but ihe tutus, bo w,. said te bo ne
ked,s fret which throws Jlgbt opou some passages
of sCTipMrrf, and removes, in some alight degree,
the reproach which sals upon the exerciacs of the
Sparlun girls.
Tire upper garment whs s plain piece of cloth,
generally ten or twelve feet long, and half ns wide;
winch we suppose weald now be called ■ mantle.
It was often woven in s single piece without seam,
and wan thrown like a shawl over the «boulder*;
sometimes drawn over (he left shoulder and fasten
ed at two cornera by a huckleou the right. It wWh
on thisgarment that the Hebrews were directed by
Moses to wear the bluo riband which distinguishes
them from other nations. Tho poor used it as vise
Highlanders did their plaid, for hed-clolhes by
nigiil; and fortius reason, if tlie Hebrew creditor
had seized this article of dress, lie was compelled
by law to restate it before night fall. Tlie chief
difference by tween the male and feu ale dmsa was.
that the latter always wore the veil. laboring men
went to their work without the upper garment,
which explains the prophecy, that at the aiege of
Jerusalem, they will liavo no time to return for their
clothes. When they went to any distance on foot,
they gathered the tunic in folds, and secured it with
their girdle at (lie waist, that it might not embarrass
llicrr feel; this was girding the loins.
The dress of lire Greeks and Romans was very
different from Ibis. It was flowing and graceful;
hut while we allow that in point of freedom and
appearance their drapery was belwr than ours, we
msmtsin, that in some other respects the sdvnnlago
is decidedly our own. Wliut i« now ended linen,
for example, in article so important thnt no man
willingly dispenses with it, was wholly unknown to
tlie ancients, anil hsd they known it, its advantages
would have lieen in a meaaiirc neutralized, by their
practice of pulling oil on their limbs and head
There arc amne res|ierta in which tlie personal hab
its of the ancients will not bear investigation. The
pocket-handkerchief, which is found in all but the
most benighted portions of the modern world, was
not among their comforts and bleasinga; and what
supplied its place is more easily imagined than de
scribed. As one other slight indication, Poou%y

It is no easy mailer t„ tell when the modem
drraa was first used. Nothing reaeoihlmg pants
loons was worn by Hebrew or Greek, nor the earlier
noma ns. It appears that they were known in Babv
on, and wer# so made as to cover the tool, so that
he hint nf I lie stocking was evidently lasen from
an amputated leg of thia garment. Something nf
the kmd was also in use among the (.aula, who
were in general by no means curious in auch matters,
and in the fifth century they were worn in Rome;
hut it was 'bought beneath the majesty of Koine to
borrow l.ishiona from a conquer«*! people; and a
law waa passed, compelling all wlm made or wore
Ilium to retruat with their new finery from lliepre
mise» of die city. Tlie modem small clothea were
firs' worn in the lime of I.uuis XVI. Tlie article in
Scripture, which bears a similar name, waa nothing
more than an apron gathered round tlie waist and
lulling to the knees. As this article nfdresg origin
itert III France, it came neur ending wliere it began,
rew specimens of it beingtound in lire regiment of
Anucharaia Clout*, it was re,eclcd from the rowdu

trymen, "what news?" The enquiry may
made, what are the views of onr leading men as to
the proposed Constitution? Who are the men to
represent os,—nnrf what are their distinct senti
ments? Are we in future to submit to a Govern
ment with unlimited powers,—or arc we to be gov
erned by powers derived from implication? I sug
gest as a grave matter far reflection, whether tlie
proposed Conciliation should not contain distinct
assertions of Stnte Rights, to as to iiornctuate the
Sovereignty of the People, from Federal encroach
