BOUIWONNAIS GHOVE, ILL. FlU!>.\ Y :\L\JlCill6 188.3. The Boy of the Period

NoU1ing so clnractcrizes the Am eric:tn youth of this ecnLur.)' , noLhing g ives them such an incli vidual stamp o l' clisLindncss from the boy ofp~st generations as their lrtrc[:well <lisrcsp ccL for author ity . The boot black, tile i" trc:et gr·min, the l ·oy 01' the peri oclmny be defined as th•] pcrsonili c ntion .of check, eonplcd with audacity, and <.:0 11tc mpt fur superi ors. Ask tile scrutinizing for e ign ~r w ~ n t fill> h im with t l1o gre:1.tcst astonishment when he first sets his fo ot upon the free soil of our r epn blic? His n.ns wcr will cortn.inly uo, not so much the vastness of o ur continent, not so much our lnrge spledid rivers, our gre:1t inhml seas or bkes , not our m:cny prosperous nud popul ous citi es filled with educational institutions :mel nFy lnn~ ~ for the he-meleEs, thefi:ien dless andsick;bnt thi s visible manifestation of the youth's disrespect for .whnt stand snbove him, a fh ct made intensely impressive 1n a th on sn nd wny s. In our times, the fnth er, the kind parent who labors hard from sunrise till sunset is called th e "old man:" while the tender-hearted mother, she who hn s g uarded our t ender y ears, and watched our cradle with a mother's lov e is qualified with the appellation of "old woman." The mast er , the employer, no matter how kind or considerate, is t erm ed the "Boss;" the veteran down whose ch ssic brow may hang the snowy looks of a long life of usefullness, indicative of toil and labor, of honor and fame, is termed "old snoozer" old decrepit "coffinback," and thus we might en um erate by straining our memory in c:t!ling up the V[l.rions epithets, the various colloq ui:ll shng phrases , all tending to show up the ris in '5 yout h of the period in his tru e colors, possessing an nlm ost inna te love of self~ importance, an innate averSion to su h,i ec tion in nn.y shnpe or form, and a hearty contempt for any thing in which his personal whims m nst be r endered s uhmiEsivc to tho dictates of reason. A s Satan long ago sa id: "n on serviam," the sn me words nre practic:t lly uttered in thi s so-call ed" cnlightned nineteenth century," by the boy of the period. W e read in a neighbonring J ournal not long since the following incident. A certain fath er had taken upon him self the duty of chnsti sing his unruly son. Grasping tho boy by the CO[l.t-colhr, and phcing him across his kn ees, he begn.n to ex perim ent what remedy for way wardness was found in the he:1lthy nppli cation ofa horse whip. Sudden ly, and cspec inlly to the nstonishment of th e ngccl sire, the boy, prep~ reel for every emerO"ency firmly fix ed his teeth upon the fa ther's pantaloon:. Th~ prtrent wi ld with anger , and pro b :~b l y with pain" cried out to the urchin to stop, when the young Am eri can iif'ted up hi s head and with a demoni ac:1l a ir ex cla im ed "Old man, who began this?" '

Thi ~ is only one of the few incidents that daily come t.o our cnrs, nll showing that disrespect for authority is a e·,nccr that i:; gnaw ing at ihe heart of this young repnulic. W c do not mc:-~n of course t-hat it is the only evil; Lut it eert:1inly mny ua r;,nlwd nmongst the foremost, Bec:n1se, once do !•wny with hnn.111n authority, do away witl.I rcspcet for the l:Lws nnd it~ public officers, and you certain ly mu~L do awHy with God Ilimself, ancl without him, nut merely nn~rehy mnBt follow, but a total subv er~ion of society in gcner:d and the reign of even llell's powers upon Lhis enrLh. ln a college of this kind, sometime;; , we must sny with sorrow, we sec boys giving strong in<lications of this· same disrespect. The ndvice oftheirmast£>r i~ not heeded, his counsels nre not oucyecl, n.t lenst willingly, his opinions in some C.'!,sc:s even are q ucstioncd. ~orne will look upon the Cassock no t as a mark of distinction, " it is a n:ierevieceofcloth" · as they s:ty: Lhe priest consecrated to the worship of God, is sometimes spoken of with levity, with disrespect: Every thing with these boys, ns a rule, is wrong except themselves, :md they mnst ccrt:l.inly be right. What ins:~n i ty! what pride! what egotism! what shnllow human ·ambition m:mifested by those, who, if they knew themselv es thorougly , should shrink fi·om their own insignifi canc~ and hide themselves in the dust. What has generated this insane spirit of pride, this spirit of the devil over th is vast country, is not for us to inquire now. Whether if. tS arrisen from the wide diffusion of unchristinn ecl ncn.tion, of an unh ea lthy and pernicious literature : whether it h:1s nrisen from our hatr'ed of"Toadyism," of "Shodclyiteism" or royalty in any form , we do not presum e to sny; but certain it is thnt it exists :tnd h:ts t:1ken deep root in thq hearts of the rising generation. Thnt this vi ce is an enemy to the public welfure none o:m deny: and hence, such being the case, in n~ much as we Catholics, nree:xpccted and rightly, to give an example to society, everything tending towards generating t his spi rit of the devil in our hearts, should be crushed out, and everything conducive to the promotion of love for authority, love for superiors should be zealously encouraged knowing, so well as we do, that every one mu st be subj ect to a ilighcr power as all !lie fubjcct to God
