From the Southern Review.
Art. VIII. ALAS: A SATIRE ON THE
The following trenchant and powerful satire
may, perhaM, b deemed too severe by sonic of
our readers. If to, the im predion will ariw,
we are persuaded, from detached parts or pa
n&e of it only, and not from the poem consid
ered as a whole. Indeed, no human language
or imagination could give more than a faint and
feeble idea of the awful corruption of th times.
In private life there is, we rejoice to believe,
much real virtue and piety. But bow i it in
public like 7 Can patriot or phiUuthropiot con
template the spectacle which this presents, with
out, a feeling of . unutterable loathing and
disgust ? Is not bribery ,and corruption, open
and imd unblushing, the order of the day?
Do they not stai abroad, and, with bra
zen front, raise their hideous heads in proud
contempt of an enfeebled public opinion, which
fails to resent and rebuke the insult as it deserves
to be reseuted and rebuked? In the words of our
' If virtue lives, die shuns the public gaze,
In fear and sorrow spends the weary days,
With few to sympathize and none to praise.'
The niort diflRtuting feature f all is, that our
own once blessed country has bten snnk in this
wide, sweltering mass of corruption, as in a con
tinent of filth, by pretended patriots and philan
thropists, N lash can be be too severe for such
creaiurei; Creatures I Nat, call them not
creatures r they are only: creeping thing
which are horn f corruption only, ami which
can only live, and move, and have their being
1 corruption. Ah they were not created, but
only born ofcorrupiion, ho they can onlr breathe
la an atmosphere of corruption, and breed 'creep
ing tilings' like themselves. The times of Jn
vcnal, indeed, did not more loudly call for the
tremendous hish of satire than do these in whieh
we live. Nor, in our humble opinion, did he
apply that lah with a more vigorou hand, or
witfi a juster discrimination, than it is applied
by the author of the following satire. Alas!
for ' the grand experiment on human nature
as the Constitution of the United States was
called by its authors, that it should have fallen
a prey to the harpies Lv wbem the land has
been devoured ! Proceeding on the supposi
tion that man is not a child of wrath by na
ture hut all pure within thus ignoring the
eternal wisdom of God's word it has proved
au Utopia as wild in the magnificence of its
promise as sad in the meanness of iu perform
ance. If, according lo the sublime en log t of
Mr. Webster, it was the last hope of the world
then has it left the world wrapped in darkness.
Or if, according to the grand boast of Mr. Ban
croft, our institutions are destined 'to win the
world to freedom by the beauty of our example
we can see no signs, as yet, of the on-coming po
litical millennium, lo say nothing about the all
transforming 'beauty of our example.' Alex
ander Hamilton, the most profound political
thinker and prophet of hia day, pronounced the
Constitution 'a frail and worthless fabric' And
so is every jolity or scheme of government
which proceeds on the hyKthesis that man
is not a fallen being, and "needs but a fair op
portunity to display the wonders of his intelli
gence and virtue. He has had that oppor
tunity in this country, ?nd the result of liie
grand experiment' is simply alas! alas! alas!
We once had an honorable, hiih-ininded
friend, who, as an 014 School Presbyterian, be
lieved in the 4 total depravity of hum-in
nature.' But, aa a politician, "we had often
heard hiru discourse about ' the virtue and in
telligence of the 1-eoplc without the least
consciousness ol anv discrepencv in his views.
On one occasion, some twenty-five years a"o. he
,1.1 I: : ri r , 0 '
iim.huuiciiw, 10 one 01 ins most eloquent
harangues, how securely the happiness of this
country rested on the glory of our free institu
tions, and how securely the glory of our free in
stitutions, rested on ' the virtue and intelligence
of the people.' 'What, then,' we ventured to ask
mm alter lusspeech was over, does the rirlue and
intelligence of the people rest on ? On " the total
depravity of human nature" ?' He looked puz
zled, and frankly confessed that he had never
thought of that question before.' He was a
representative man. How nianv of our politi
cians, of the better sort, have had one doctrine
lor the closet, and another for the hustings 1
How many have been like the old cosmogonists,
who placed the world on the back of a huge
elephant, and the elephant on the back of an
immense tortoise, but who, in their wisdom,
never considered the question on what the tor
toise rested. As, after the search of ages, it was
discovered that the earth rests upon nothing,
but is susjended, like a chandilier, from kbove
from the great luminary that 'rules by day'
so, after the quest of other ages, it will" be as
certained that the moral and social world is not
supported from below, but is suspended from
above even from the Sun of Righteousness,
which according to the magnificent metaphor of
Malachi, has so gloriously 'risen 011 the world
with healing in his wings.'
'The last hope of the world'! as Mr Webster
profanely called the Constitution. Alas! it was
no hope at nil; it was only an illusion. of the
night, by which the minds of men were drawn
away from ' the only hoe of the world to wan
der amid happy dreams and bright hallucina
tion for a season, and then plunge, with the
awful roar of a thousand Niagaras, into the
abyss and darkness of the times' we live in.
There was, as 'the grand ex jveriment' haf shown
morcsaviiigtruth in the 'Old School Presbyterian
theology' of our friend than in this ' new-school
political philosophy which so many of the
divines of .the, present! day, as well as himself,
have borrowed from the infidel writers of the
eighteenth centurv. When statesmen, or polit-
cal architects, shall return to the old-fashioned
doctrine of the Bible, and shall, instead of walk
ing 'in the light of their own eyes learn to
bow with reverence to its inspired wisdom, we
may hope for some good to come of their coun
sels. But until then, each and every st-heme,
bused on the hypothesis of man puritv by na
Hire, which they may be pleased to invent for
'the regeneration of the human race, will per
ish not otherwise than three hundred written
constitutions perished during the first half of
the present century. L pon each and everj one
01 mem nisiory win, sooner or iaiejr. wrne ine
word, Alas! and point again, frfhV the fcVfnl
corruption of the present, to ' the ouly hope' of
Gone are the men of noble heart and brain,
The Great Republic's founders. All in vain
We scan the spreading Empire to behold
A single statesman of the days of old
A single patriot whose only aim
His country's welfare and an honest fame.
Corruption reigns. Assurancejtalks abroad,
Defiant of the laws of man and God.
From high to low if high and low there be,
Where scoundrels differ only in degree
The deadly taint prevails; the putrid mass
But struggles, each the other to urmss
In crime and wantonness, till nature writhes
With pain, and wonders if aught good survives.
If virtue lives, she shuns the public gaze,
In fear and sorrow spends the weary dayo,
With few to sympathize, and none to praise.
God help the land, so reprobate, so curst ;
When will his thunders on this Sodom burst?
There was a time how grand the scene appears
To muse historic, smiling through her tears!
When heroes struggled for a place and name
Among the nations ; and when glory came,
World-circling and undying ; when arose
The yonng Republic, 'midst the pangs and throes
Of revolution, and the dormant rihi
Of government by numbers, not by might.

With reasonings, ealoi and strong, and high

Was forme I the love-bound union of the States.
Of sovereign State, co-eqnal and intact.
While Heaven's blessings crowned the act. I
Tbe commerce spread her snowy wings afar,
And kings and subjects h 000 red stripe and star
The husbandman received a full return
For-toil and care; what industry could earn, ;
Bjr sturdy sinews and by sweat of brow.
Went not to pamper lazy thieves, as now.
No endless taxes ground the worthy poor
Till ghastly famine haunted at the door ;
Within was plenty, and around the board
Daily the happy family adored
Their Maker, thankful for the blessings given, ;
And had foretaste of their future heaven.
Religion flourished pare and undented.
As taught by Virgin Mary's God-fnll Child. ;
Devoted pastors guarded well their flocks.
Nor smeared with dirty politics their frockn; ;
The mystery of godliness their pride,
And preaching Christ, the Saviour crucified.
Then marriage was esteemed a sacred tie, '
And vows of love were not a Ironeyed lie;
The seal of fond affection was for life,
And death alone divorced the man and wife. :
Obedient children, stout and fair to view,
In goodly numbers around their parents grew
Sure indication of a thriving State,
As lessening offspring 'show the coming fate. '
Self-government was real office sought
The man, not man the office, as it ought.
The public servants labored to fulfill . " '
Their duties, mindful of the neonle'a will.
The learned professions, were what tfiey professed,
uiiacas ana 11 umut:g,u allow at Ine best.
The bar was eloquent, the bench profound,
Not brazen trumtiets. tlvTne emntv sound :
The lawyer, zealous, faithful lo Lis cau4,
The judge, the just interpreter of laws.
Jn legislative hails decorum reigned ;
No private ends were serve 1, 00 vantage gained,
By cunning falsehood and by bribes of gold ;
Notes in the market, were not bought and sold.
Parties, there were, but rivals to sustain
The Constitution without flaw or strain ;
Not raving factions,) eager to deface
Fait Freedom's temple aud her cause disgraW.
From North to South, from East to lengthening
The glow of patriotism filled each breast ;
Brothers in arms, iu trials and iu soul.
The silken bands of union bound the whole.
Such were the halcyon day, the golden age,
Emblazoned on the hUtoriau's deathless page.
There came a serpent to this paradise,
A spawn of hell, iu philanthropic guise,
A saintly hopocrite, replete with lies,
And treacherous counsels, and deceitful shows
Of wrongs unfelt, imaginary woes,
Fomenting discontent and sore distrust
Of things that were, as rotten with the rust
And wear of time, and clamorous for change :
The substitution of things new and strange
New constitutions, governments, and laws,
To foster progress and advance its cause.
So busily this evil spirit wrought,
So eagerly his ready victims sought,
So stealthily assailed and undermined
Weak men and women, they were soon inclined
To innovations, startling and absurd ;
In morals, church and otate, their head were
By fold suggestions and insidious guile,
To disobedience, mutiny, and spoil,
To envy, malice, defamation, hate,
And deeds too vile and nauseous to relate.
Laws, human and divine, were set aside ;
No longer Kevela;ion was the guid?
And guage of conduct; but the inner light.
The higher law, was made the rule of right.
hatever fallen nature craved to do
Was done, and deemed the beautiful and true.
To intermeddle, to provoke, excite
i o desperation, was the foul delight
Of saints professed. Nor did their efforts cease
To fan disorder and impair the eace,
Till patience, heated, ripened into strife
ror honor, saletv, property, ami life.
And civil war rolled on its mighty fleod.
Whelming the fatal land in tire and blood !
Not ours the mournful dmv to unfold
The tale of horrors, yet but faintly told :
How sire and son in furious battle met,
How brothers' hands with brothers' blood were
Plantations ravaged, fruitful regions made
A drear and barren waste bv licensed raid
License to rob, defile, and desecrate
Altar and fireside, homes made desolate.
Sad was the day, when phrenzy ruled each hour,
And terrible the work of rage and xwer.
Women aud children, flying to obtain
The rudest shelter, often sought in vain.
Arson and murder, deeds the gasping breath
Can scarcely utter : outrage worse than. death,
Torture and agony prolonged : and still
o hope, no mercy but the victors will.
Ah I who can estimate the fearful cost,
When unity was saved and liberty was lost!

Correspondence of the Richmor.d Whig.
Washington-: April 14, 1872. As
the period approaches when the question
is to be decided al Ciucinuati who the
next President will be, the interest a
mongst politicians is becoming intense.
As but few persons with whom I have
met leetu to ntidtr-tand the Cincinnati
movement, X have thought a succinct his
tory and explanation of its beginuiug,
objects and aims would be acceptable
to the uumberous readers of the Whig.
The tyraiiny established by the Radical
party over the enire 8001 Ii was got rid
of iu Maryland, Virgiuia, Tennessee and
Missouri by a union or combination made
with the more liberal and generous of
that party and the Democratic party. In
each of these States the selection of Re
publican candidates for the prominent of
fices carried over Republic a sufficient
with the Democratic vote to relieve each
of the States named above.
A number of gentlemen in Missouri,
having in that State witnessed the won
derful success ft this policy, determined
to make the patriotic effort to iuaugurata
the same policy thioughout the whole
United States, and elect, :f possible, a
President aud Congress who would re
lease the remainder of the Southern
States, from the bondage and tyranny sfj
carpet-bag rule. I his noble, this patriot
ic purpose they have diligently sought to
accomplish, and we are happy to say,
with a bright prospect of success. To
make it a success it is absolutely neces
sary that the nominees at Ciucinuati
bould both If from tU Republican party
It most be dut-and-out-ont a BennhlVsn
movement. 'The candidates must be not

It fa believed there are al least that
somber of b nest, patriotic, Hjht-tbink-inj
men In tl e Republican ranks who are
willing-now tj reverse the Grant policy of
hatred to tb feoatb, and at least make the
trial of one c ' kindness andjtmice.
Therw are 1 lso quite a number of Re
publicans who, disgusted with (iraut's
stealings, wil be willing to. rote for any
other Rrpubl caa candidate, net ouc of
whom would rote for a Democrat. These
two clatset pT Republiant will be sufH
eient to make up all losses from disaffect
ed Democrats and seeure for the ticket a
handsome ma ority.
These pent emen bare carefully avoid
ed evtrjwhc the camp-followers, the
spoilsmen, tin plunder-hunters, guarding
against the si spicion that the movement
was to feed 1 angry Democrats. "They
know full well that any judiciously select
ed ticket will j-eceive aa against Grant the
cordial and almost unanimous support of
tbo Democrat masses. The Important
and telling point is to hare a ticket that
will divide iliejRepnblican Jriy, separate

A eet of tuiniug, shrewd spoil seekers ,

However, lake 11I the piomiueut idea alM

was that tlio ticket that would unite most
Republicans iu its favor should be nomi

have beeu so sljrong, although be is not

movers in this great resolution, yet the

eman much Ulked abont
is Gratz Brown,
soori. ' To him
present Governor of Mis-
probablr more than any
other one man is the South indebted for
this grand movement for her deliverance
trom her nppres iwi. lie is a rwemuca
iau, descendant f a family of that name
who migrated at in early day from Rock
bridge county, Ya., to Knturky. The
Rer. Dr. Rrowji and the late John
Thompson Brown, of your State, are of
the same stock 4f people. He wts oue
of the leaders of the great revolution in
Missouri, was a (Republican, always dis
trusted Grant, wjiich probably has much
to do with his eaving the Republican
party. The coi lroling objection lo his
nomination is thhttre hails from a State
tecure for the nominee whoever he may
be. He is a Ripublicati turned Demo
crat is of couret hstel by Republicans
and could bring I o strength to the ticket.
: Adams, of Mass: cbusetts, is Cari harx's
candidate. He s a descendant of the
Presidential faint y of Adams, a pure, up
iht statesman o; superior abilities. New
England ideas having brought the coun
tjj to what it is, he would be sup
ported with great reluctance both in tlio
South aud West. He could not bring a
Xew Enelaud State to vote the ticket.
Last, bat uotltait, is Lymsn lrumoun,
now one of the Sl
uators from Illinois.
He was born ia
Connecticut, and has
been a prominent
politician in Illinois for
as a Democrat then as
a Republican; voted for all Grant's ob
noiiom neasurs;l ia as popular with the
32. WHOLE NO. 822
Democrats as Davis, but be la much more
of a politician tbau Davis. The leader
in this movement prefer Trumbull to Da
vis. The latter baa positively irfused to
indicate who shall be the recipients of the
patron sge of the government ; la other
words, is too honest for politicians. As
the proplo bave no aay in these mailers,
managed as they are exclusively by the
politicians, the chances are that the dele
gates to Cincinnati will be so manipula
ted as to give the nomination to Trum
bull. If either Trumbull or Davis be
nominated, apd it ia proclaimed broadcast
throughout the country that tbo patron
age the office of the country will to be
given to the Uepublicaaa the triumph of
the ticket ia sure.
For Vice-President the candidate are
legion. Governor Walker, of your State,
has paid several visits to this city recent
ly. It is believed be II not averse to serv
ing the people in that office. He has,
however, do show. The saot rtaaoni
that rule out Grata Brown apply to Gov.
Walker. He was a Republican, turned
Democrat, is of course baled by tho Re
publicans and eanuot bring a Republican
vote to the ticket, and lives in a State con
sidered certain for the ticket. Wo Vara
not time or space to discus tb claim of
the numerous candidates for tb oCce. -Suffice
it to say tho choice, ia oar judg
ment, is narrowed down to two men-"
Horace Greely, f New York, iu4 Gov.
Curtia, of Pennsylvania. Ai between
these two gentlemen tho Cincinnati Con
vention will probably select Gov. Cartin.
He lives in Pennsy lvauia, which is a
doubtful Stale. Coitm on tb ticket it
csases to be doubtful. Xew York ia known
to be safe. The recent nomination of
llartranft for Governorof Pennsylvania by
the Cameron men has given great dissat
isfaction to the McCiure and Cur. in wing
of the Republican party.
With either Davis or Trumbull as
President and Cortiu or Greeley for Vice
President the success of the ticket is in
evitable, unless it should be defeated by
?h stupidity, obstinsey and dogin-tbe-manger
seihshntss of the Democracy.
That many of the old f gy leaders of
the Democratic party who have been
keut out iu the cold" for SO lonr a
time, meu who bavo been huagering and
thirsting for the? spoils, will oppose this
movement with great bitterness is to bo
expected. When, however, they see that
the patriotic masses are throwing op their
hats and shouting for its secect they will
very soon cave 111 and do likewise. When
tb-- people are salificd that the object of
this great movement is to relieve the
South, tak from her the burtlwcs that
now weigh her down, all pod meu of all
j parties will co operate. 1 be disbanding
the great and powerful Democratic party
i not contemplated. That paity with
its three millions of voters will march
into the fight with its banners streaming,
actuated solely by patriotism and love of
country, deterraiuea to rescue the Capi
tol from the gotbs aud vandals who hold
it in possession. So soon as these nomi
nations are made, Grant and bis salelites
seeing that it is a Uepublican and not a
Democratic ticket they have U fight, will
at once chaisge their tactics and begin. to
court llie votes of the Southern people.
It would net snrprise us if Morton him
self should be the first to lead off and
move for universal amnesty. Iong be
( ire the battle has been fought, the ?OUlh
will realize her approaching deliverance
and acknowledge the wisdom and philan
thropy of the grcit movement. We add a
list of Stales that are now considered sure
for this ticket, 171) being necessary to

He says his company is anzions toget this
road, "and to do so are willing to pay a

It is ssid that this company has already
purchased the Fas tern Division, and w
have just been shown a letter from tho
President of our Western Division to the
effect that he can, and will in a few days,
make disposal ef his part of the liae.
This company, if the whole line is
transferred to them, will commence ork

complete'the road from Old Fort to Wolf
Creek within eighteen months st farthest,
as much sooner as possible. i nen
will a 're to carrv the road on to

ihey will obligate themselves for the Con
