Perverted Literary Taste.
From the Manchester (Ft) Journal.
For some months past the papers and maga
zines throughout the country have been
ringing the praises of two, 89-called, brilliant
literary stars, .uret uarte ana i. nay, until it
seemed as though this "dialect" literature and
trashy, if not sacrilegious verse, was to take
the place of everything sensible and elevating,
and that profanity was actually poetry. I
think it time that the press should wake up to
a sense of its duty, and boldly decry anything
so debasing as this style of poetry must be,
and which will in time be so looked upon by
every right-minded person.
The New York Evening 1'ost gives a recipe
for producing the sensational poetry above
spoken of, which carries its own rebuke with
it, hich I enclose:
Take for your hero some thorough-bred scamp,
;Miner, or pilot, or jockey, or tramp
(jammer (of course), drunkard, ouuy, ana cneau
''Facile t'rincevn.r lu ways of deceit;
Bo loud of ladles, he's mven to blgomy.
(Better, perbaos, if you mane it polygamy!
Fepjer his talk with the raciest slaiig
Culled from the hauuis of hta rude, vulgar gang!
(Season with blasphemy lard him with curses,
Serve him up hot in your "dialect" verses
Properly dished he'll excite a sensation,
Ana tickle the taste of our delicate nation.
Old Mother English has twaddled enough ;
Give us a language that's ready and rough!
W ho cares jukt now for a subject MUtoulan?
Who Isn't bored by asiyie Addisonian?
Popnlar heroes must wear shabby clothes!
What if their diction is cumbered with oaths?
That's but a feature of Life Occidental,
fteully, at heart, they are pious and gentle.
Think, for exaumle. how solemn ana rlcli Is
The sermon we gather from dear "Little Breeches;"
Ihu'i It charming that sweet buby-tallt
OI the urtliln who ' thawed" ere he fairly could
Sure, tls no wonder bright spirits above
Slug led huu out for their errand of love!
I suppose I'm a "fogy" not up to the age
ism 1 can't helo recalling an earlier stage,
When a l'oet meaut something beyond a Reporter.
And his Uuea could be read to a sinter or dauguter
When a real inspiration (divinus apiaiuH)
Could be printed without any saving hiatu;
When humor was decently shrouded In rhyme,
united the primitive ways of the time.
And we all would have blushed had we dreamed of
Wi iauht oa to-dajiaour'iJiaicjf'svUoviS!
It may be all right, though 1 nod It all wrong,
Thfa minjir nfn.nriitinti tt tutnnt. In anntv
j inn ijuirr prjrpbiiui.mil ui mivui iu miug ;
rerhaps, in our market, gold sells at a loss,
And the public will pay better prices for dross

And the If srob that's set us has got to be learned ;
But I'll make one more desperate pull to be free,
Ere I swallow the brood of that "Heathen Chinee."
The First Regatta of the Senaon-Fourth
Scnaou of the Manhattan Club.
The yachting season was opened yesterday
with the Manhattan Yacht Club's fourth annual
regatta. The day being particularly fine,
although the wind was unpropitlous for racing,
a very large number of the Club members and
their friends assembled on board the steamer
Fort Lee, which bad been chartered for the oc
casion. The yachts which contested for prizes
were divided into two clasees:
First Claes Nancy, Commodore 81mpson;
Sarah, Captain McCabe, Mystery, V. C. Cooper.
Second Class Emma Sophia, Jacob Varian;
Sophia V., J. M. Varian; Skip-Jack, J. D. Bras
elnnton; Boz, Captain Islip.
Tbe course for the first class was from the
club-house, foot of Ninety-second street, East
Klver, to Sands Toint buoy and return, a dis
tance of thirty miles; for second class, from
club-house to Fort Schuyler and return, twenty
The signal for starting was given at 123, and
immediately all got ready. The wind at the
time was very light, and what little there was
was adverse; consequently getting away was a
series of "tacks," in which much good manage
ment was shown by the Mystery, the Boz, and
the Skip-Jack, which three took the lead, Boz
being first. Oft Ward's Island the Nancy, who
was doing well, made a great mistake by making
a wide tack, by which she lost ground that she
was unable afterwards to recover. Off Riker's
Island Boz led, with Mystery and Skip-Jack
close astern, the others being far off. Between
that point and Fort Schuyler, Skip-Jack, all the
time bugging the shore, crept up slowly
and managed Ho obtain the lead.
At this time the wind had almost en
tirely died out, and the Nancy and Emma
Bopbia being becalmed, withdrew from the race.
The others crept along, passing Fort Schuyler
in the following order: Skip-Jack, Sophia V.,
Boz, Mystery, and Sarah; the latter two were
very close. The first-class boats continued their
race to Sands' Point, and had an exciting con
test. The second-class returned to the home
stake-boat, and when about half way there a
good breeze sprang up, which bowled them
along merrily. Ihe order in which tbe boats
came in was: Skip-Jacu, 8ophla V., Boz, Mys
tery, and Sarah, Skip-Jack and Mystery winning
the prizes in their respective classes. The ofli
cers of the Club are: Commodore, 8. M. Simp
son; Vice-Commodore, J. M. Croker; Rear
Commodore, 8. A. Varian; Secretary, Mr. Islip;
Treasurer, J. M. Varian. The Manhattan Club
proposes another race shortly. N. Y. Times, o
