Art. VIII. ALAS : A SATIRE ON THE
; ! : . TIMES. , - . ; ,. .;
- , ALAS J "
Alas, the change! Where Rhone a Washington,
Begrimed with unioke, sits Jesse's puffing son,
The cjotid-couipelling deity'vho rule
His piebaid worshipers of knaves and fooln;
A thing of accident, a bladder blown' '
By. favoring fortune, and her special own.
BoorUh in mnnners, poor in iho't and speech,
His pen and tongue below the critic' reach
Stupid and stubborn, aforning all ndvicr,
And selling office for the highest price,
Sarin? provUion for his best of kin,
Who, out of place and pocket, must go in.
Gambler in gold and stocks by go-betweens,
A pleasure-Keeker upon other' means ; v .
A brazen bejrgar, with an outstretched hand,
Ready for honsca, horJefT!os, and land ;
Nothing amiss to hi unquenched desires,
Little or big alike his creed inspires:'
A cottage here, a broad plantation there,
Down to a tavern bill or rail raid (are.
Dull to hi country's honor or her shame,
Indifferent to her interests or her fame, -So
he can drive and drink and smoke the same !
No loafer need despair, nor satire want
A fitting subject, while there lives a Grant.
If such the thief, what then the rank nnd file
The myriad mideriings, who snuff their spoil
Like greedy "vultures hunting for their prev ?
Their depth of degradation who can sav?
Boldly they steal, harass, insult, oppress"
The sons of toil, who vainly seek redrew.
Backed by a ready soldiery they fear
No check upon their infamous career.
The courts are powerless. If disposed to make
Some slight resistance, for appearance sake,
The fiat of an honest jnde is met
By gleaming sword and conquering bayonet.
But few the honest judges. Even the Court
Still calieujiij reme and of ihe last resort,
Yhoe manihite once none dared to diwobev,
When Marshall' massive logic held the swav,
len Story'fc polished periods charmed the ear,
And Taney made each doubtful Question clear.
Now, crouching, trembling in its projer sphere,
Waits for a higher jwer to interfere,
And, careful nlv of its pay and ease,
Siiapea its decrees the President to please.
And whaTthe Congress but a brawling mob,
A banded ring to speculate and job;
Open to bribery, courting an advance
Coqueltishly, its favors to enhance,
Like practised courtezans; a lawless league
For plunder by connivance and intrigue;
Wide mouthed with fulsome cant of brotherhood
And equal ri-hts for every race and blood,
While given to drunkenness and beastly lust,
And trampling constitutions in the dust,
And wielding, in the sacred name of law,
The vilest despotism the world e'er saw.
O topmost shame ami wonder of the times!
All language fails to indicate your crimes.
The boast eii Capitol, whose lof'y dome
.Vie- with the splendor of the ancient Rome,
Whose marble floors at.il grided walls should he
The home of statesman -hip and puri'v,
Reels with the load of ignorance and -in.
Slinks with the utter rottenness will. in.
No more Virginia's gifted sons adorn
Its storied halls, as in the nation's morn ;
No more Ca:bo;in' rrphctiu voice explains
The Consiiiuiion and i- rule sustains;
Where Allies and Pinckney, (.'lay and Webster
Are heard the soneles quacking of a Drake;
Morton, diseased in body and mind,
Emits his poison to pollute his kind;
Butler, the beast, alt decency defies,
Hi- hruti.-h heart more crooked l-han his eyes;
And JSumner, imbecile for aught but evil,
Now plays the Puritan any now the devil.
It more yon asklhe contrast to complete,
Behold a negro in a Davis' scat.
Sickened, we turn frcmrulers to the ruled
Like mass and masters, save the crushed and
As base and wicked, else why not asert
Their manliood, and rise upward from the dirt
And filth of their condition? Why not be
Freemen in fact as weli as in theory ?
Grovelling, debauched, depraved, thev onlv
Of monev-making and the dollar's clink :
Wealth, by all means of fraudulent deceit
In trade and fabrics, glorying in the cheat ;
Poison in liquors, shoddy everywhere,
Swindling in all we drink and eat and wear;
l Hti'ie combinations to enhance the price
Of stocus ami bonus, by every low device
To cunning known, or to depress the same
For purchase by the shufllers in the game.
To break a sacred (r;ut. to bankrupt friends,
To use a public fund for private ends,
Defraud the revenue, or rob a bank,
Gives to the perpetrator fame and rank.
Fair specimen of bond and railroad trick,
See Fik, the ei!dler, with hi coach and six ;
For patent humbug, proudly by his side,
See llclnitHilu roll in equal pomp and pride,
While Chamberlain airl Morissey combine
To furnish samples in their ecil line
In conseqnenre and character, no more
Nor less the difference than six to four.
No matter if a city groan and liked,
If marble stables can l e built for Tweed,
And Connolly a fair division make
Of public plunder for hi conscience's sake.
None care for others' rights, or wrongs, or pains,
So not disturbed in Jthcir ill-gotten gains.
Willi thee they take their till of sinful joys,
Indulge in pleasure whieh the health destroys,
Through all the maze of vice and folly run.

Of husbands, by some fresher olject fired.

Of offspring in the phrenzy of despair.

But not for evil. 'Tis thy nobler part

Lay down your arms and cease a fruitless war.

Let household cares ;ii.d duties be your aim.

Be virtnoii.i maidens, uuohtruive wives,
And nursing mothers, ii' it so may be ;

The paths of single blessedness pursue.
Be quiet, modest, dignified, and true;
Adorn with charity your lone condition,
And thus evade the devil and perdition.
In this dark hour of national riisties
And social evil, tell us of tli- Pri-,
That mighty medium of modern thought,
Which, on occasions, ha-1 such wonder, wrought.
Its tone and character what is it doing
Amidst this gloomy scene of wreck and ruin?
Willi type and steam and lightning at command,
Does it not flash and thunder through the land
lis dread an.uhtni; at vice and folly ?
O power misused ! O prosect melancholy !
The blushing muse, with anguish, mimt confess
The worst of all corruption is the press.
Behold the monthlies, weeklies, dailies, sent
And scattered broadcast o'er the continent.
Maik Well their contents. Here a mammoth
Is fuil of chaff with scarce a grain of w heat.
There silly, sentimental tales are found,
And riddles and st de anecdotes alnnind,
Runs a ml conundrum, rhymings wit I. out rea.v.n,
And plates of fashion in and out of season.
This is the lasting chronicle of news
And gives it from the palace to the slews ;
News from the avenue- and upjer ten
Down to the alleys and the burglar's den ;
News from the gay and fashionable resort,
Sensation trials and police rejort
Oh-sene, disgusting news, the eye and ear
Of modesty should never si-e ami hear;
Minute details of every violation
Ol virtue, Uw, and m.uals in the nation,
With which, f.tnuli iri.ed, the cur ou mind
To test is baneful knowledge is inclined.
That, fir a en or fifty dollar bill,
Its spacious column readily will fill
With grand descriptions of some private ba'l
The princely mansion and the gorgeous hall,
The tiddlers and the serving men emplored,
The quantity of cake and wine desirovcJ,
The looks of every pomjtous miob and swell.
The names and die- ot every flaunting belle,
The peaiNand diamonds Mr. Shoddy wore,
When Gretno Siubbit s ull upon the floor,
The -.igncl triumphs of Miss 1-iddiedddle
When waltzing with the famous Colonel Addl",
Who in the war was neither singed nor hit,
Thanks to a sheltering tne or rifle; pit,
Or sudden illness when the fight came on,
With prompt recovery when I he light was done.
One towers on wcddir.gs, and w ith swelling pride
Dwvlls on the glories of the groom and bride.
4 His eoat and vestaud trowscr, hape and hue,
White satin this, ihe other's broadcloth blue ;
Her robe and veil, her jew el, stockings, hoc,
Her girdle and her anything you cIko ;
The cut and color of her pettii oat.
And under mysieries from feel to throat.
And, not con tint, mounting, with steps profane,
To the sleeping ehamber of the blWlul twain,
With florid and voluptuous pencil traces
The bridal bedstead, sheet, and pillow cae.
Others with bloodhound eagerness pur.-r.o
Each travelling nincomp'-op rod interview ;
Take note of every sneere ami nod and wink,
With other takings, take a smoke and drink;
Then with particularity relate
The conversation on affairs of State,
As if the country's life and safety hung
L"jon the wagging gKise's tongue;
As if the public wi-dom could obtain
From Fisk on finance and on war from Train,
Or self-sufficiency could see it a.I
Through the dim fpectaclfs of Oakey Hal! ;
