This article reconsiders intellectuals around Vilnius University and their relationships with local society and common people in the lands of the former Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the early 19th century. It focuses on the Society of Scoundrels (Towarzystwo Szubrawców) and its publication ‘Street News’ (Wiadomości Brukowe, 1816–22), a satirical journal criticising various social pathologies. Based on analyses of articles in ‘Street News’, it considers two issues: intellectuals’ opinions about the nation (naród in Polish) and the class system, and their attitude towards the history and folk languages of Lithuania.
