A Member of III t)AMor" CUM
tJivealllm a Rattling) Over
To fit Editor of thi Bullstir :
Occasionally we are compelled to take
notice of very small creatures, because of
their persistent disposition to annoy .
This must be tbe excuse ol a senior tor
noticing the very weak, and altogether
unjust criticisms ot the productions of
some ol our class, Indulged In by a cor
respondent of tbe Aryut- Journal. I refer
to "Stanislas' who Is either a not over
bright boy, or is else a very mean man.
If a boy he may grow Into better man
ners ; It a man, hia attack upon school
girls, entitles bim to the contempt ot
every pers on who Is fair enough to be
lieve that tbe struggling efiorts of youth
should be encouraged and not retarded
by false complaints and abuse.
Souio time ago "K. A." published in
tho Bulletin' a school composition on
the "Value ot Learning," upon which
" Stanislas " descended with little vigor
bat much unfair criticism. This I pur
pose to prove so clearly that even " titan
Ulas " will admit that I have convicted
him of either stupidity or meanness.
In the composition appeared this sen
tence : " Man Is the being for whom tbe
earth, its creatures and all that It brings
forth, was created."
This, says "Stanislas," Is an ungrams
matlcal sentence, because a verb mast
agree with its subject In number and
person. It Is probably true, that a Utile
more care in the writing of this sentence
would have resulted in putting tbe words
"its creatures and all that It brings
forth," In parenthesis, or the word
"with" before the;word "Its ;" but even
as the word stands, with a comma be
fore and one alter the words, the sentence
may, according to a fair construction,
pronounced, grammatical "Earth," a
singular noun, tx-lng the subject, and in
agreement with "was" a singular Verb.
But tho meanness of "Stanislas" his
great unfairness must be apparent to
every one when wo call attention to tbe
fact that he has changed the sentence by
omitting all the punctuation marks from
it bungling it by making It read as fol
low.: "Man is tbe being for whom tho earth
its creatures and all that It brings forth
Why did "Stanislas" resort to this
trick in an attempt to mako good his
charge that 'K. A." was an utigrara
matlcal writer? A critic so
unfair U, in tact, the utterer
ot a falsehood a literary
counterfeiter, who make) a counterfeit
bill to abuse it a dtaler In literary bo
gus coin, who makes the com aud then
denounces it as bogut for the purpose of
getting the repuutiou ol a good Judge ot
Tbe next sentence "Stanislas" calls at
tention to is as follows :
"Gold, the richest metal of tbe earth,
is ol great value to man, for with it he
luiva flip i-nmlnm anrl liivnrtaa nf IIIm.1'
This sentence the unfair 'Stanislas"
publishis, omitting from It all commas,
and then adds :
"That the fact that with gold, we ean
purchase tbe comforts ot Hie Is uo proof
that the metal is rich."
Well, who said that it was? "K. A."
said: "Gold is of great value
to man because with it he
can buy tho comloita of life;"
and when "Stanislas" saye that "K. A."
said that "Gold was the richest metal of
the earth because with it man can buy
the comforts of lite," he asserts what
even Bill Lee, who spells as he reads,
would at a casual glance know to be
false. But we acquit "Stanislas" of un
kindness In this criticism. Hu did not
intend to be unfair. The fact Is he can
not understand good English. He Is
stupid, and therefore misunderstood tbe
sentence. It be were a senior he would,
for this manifestation ot stupidity, be
laughed out ot countenance. He would
be placed by the prolessor la charge ol
some one skilled in the work of building
up feeble minds, aud, alter being dieted
upon the milk and pap of the most
elementary books, mibt with great
caution, be admitted within the portals
of the third reader and strengthened
Into ordinary comprehension by
easy lessons in sentences ot
short words. If he is a
man, he Is probably young at the law
pin-feathery in legal lore ; and is in all
likelihood, attempting to get revenge on
tbe seniors because, when on one occas
ion, he asked them with mincing mouth
if Lycurgus was not a contemporary ol
Pericles, he was laughed at by the little
girls who knew that Lycurgus had gone
to bis account some eight hundred years
before Pericles was a baby, muling and
puking in his nurse's arms, but with
more sense in hie swaddling clothes than
"Stanislas" has, dressed In wcll-fl'.tlug
coat and pantaloons.
Tho next complaint is, that in ono
paragraph ot "K. A.'s" composition the
transition is so sudden it requires
several perusals before tbe writer's mean
ing becomes eviduut. Probably ! There
should be no surprise at the assertion
that "Stanislas" could not understand
the composition, It he were to
read It every minute for a
year. A man of his obluseuess would
be very likely to become confused by
read log any sentence that contained
more than one Idea. A sentence with one
Idea In It, would stun him two would
plungo him Into profound bewilder
ment. t' ', ; , , ;
All h!s other objections to " K. A.'S "
production ara of a piece with those
abovo referred to ;but It would be a great
neglect of a small subject if 1 should
pass unnoticed his reference to the defeots
ot the English language.
" Great writers and lovers of harmony
regret," he say i,' that oar language,
irom its hissing sound Is called the lan
guage of serpents.". 11 Stanislas " has a
good right to dislike hissing, fie knows
that ! tin 'daaiHHt the htaaM .' 'At' ' OUT
fair ' inixdet)' person ; ). and ' It I ay
opinion, being himself a vnl
mous ' and hissing critical rattle
snake, rattling and hissing at every per
son he does not like, he deserves the
bruslng heel of some ol the male desceu
dants of Eve. If 1 were a heavy heeled
man, Instead of alight slippered girl, be
la a serpent who should (eel my heel; or
If be Insists that he is a man, then, Instead
ot tbe heel, I should require him to en
dure my toe heavily booted, kicking
with might and main.
In a later communication to the Argui
Journal, "Stanislas" charges plagiarism
upon the seniors. Why did not Stanislas
attempt to prove his charge? If be bad
done so be would have convicted himself
of the crime of making a tuUe cbaigo.
He says one ot the seniors' poems, "Half
Past Four," strikingly resembles a les
son In McGufiey's first reader. It ha
no resemblance to tho nursery rhymes
lu McGufley's first reader,
it is not in the same meter, H
Is altogether unlike It In lorm and senti
ment. Neither Is tbe "Tramp" a parody
on "Jack Frost." What II It was.' Few
writers ot verse Invent new kinds of
"Stanislas" must have known that be
was making a false charge when he made
that ot plagiarism against the Verse
writers of the seniors; and when he ask
ed them to devote attention to the sub
lime in "Mother Goose," he evidently
had a selth.li motive. Belug a man ot as
little appreciation ol the leautlful in
literature as of truth in any thing, hede
sires tbe seniors to write to his com
prehension. Occasionally he rises to an
appreciation of "Mother Goose," the
ideas of which are to him as grand as
those of Paradise Ixist to nn ordinary
mind, and Its little Jingle is to him as
musical as tbe measured march of tho
stately lints ot Tennyson to any one else.
He Is a "Mother Goose" man small,
feeble and disjointed, and I am without
any reject lor him,
Very truly yours,

From a private letter received in this
city yeBtcrday by a prominent citizen,
we are permitted to make tbe
following cxtmct concerning the Jetties.
From this it will be seen that notwitb
standing the misrepresentations and
falsehoods put afloat by the enemies ot
Capt Ends and his great work, he is
pushing steadily and successfully ahead.
The letter referred to, which was written
by a gentleman who spends much ot his
time at the jetties, says :
The Jetties are successful in every sense
of tbe word. Capt. Eada baa now no
doubt of his twenty-four foot payment
In a month. He has much to contend
with in tbe delay of government not pay
lug as promptly as was hoped; but in
the lace of tbe present hirti river he is
j not only maintaining his own, but the
scour Is steadily going on a fact not ex
pec ted whilst the river remains so high.
ihe proof the whole thing is simply
arrived at by the tact that vessels are
coming in and going out daily by the
dozens, drawing often twenty-three and
a halt leet without trouble, and thev can
not pass Southwest Puss drawing over
fourteen feet. It certainly needs no
further comment, and Eads should not
only be promptly paid, but bonus money
