When that body first met, we were induced to hope that we should have a short and bustncss session, but a friend now writes us that it will proba bly be "spun out till the first of March." We return our thanks to Messrs. McDan- iel, Relfe, Atchison, Phelps and Sims, for public documents. Particularly would we acknowledge our indebtedness to the Hon. James H. Relfe, for his constant attention to our wants. The winter has been unusually mild un til last Wednesday morning, since which time, we have had some extremely cold weather. There was not a particle of ice in the river on Tuesday, and before Friday night it was completely blocked. It has seldom been frozen over in a shorter time after the ice commenced...

DEMOCRATIC BANNER PUBLISHED Etgularly on evert Monday Morning at Louisiana, Pike County, Mo. . F. MURRAY, Editor and Proprietor. Banning a Saw oa adjudge, Scraps from the Note Book of a Mo. Lawyer. Among the members of the bar was young H , whose round smooth face, soft skin, and clear complexion, gave him a rather feminine cast of countenance. And the mode in which he dressed his hair heightened the effect of his peculiar physi ognomy. In his childhood he received an injury on his head from a scald,' which ever after prevented the growth of any hair on the scalded spot On every other part of his head his hair was of the most luxuriant growth. This blemish he was always very careful to conceal by combing his hair over the naked place, and fastening it with a lady's comb. But it must not be inferred that II was feminine in disposition: for a more manly, generous-hearted, good natured fel low never lived. He was always full of fun, and always ready to enter into any joke that was goin...

OH! WEEP NOT! EY THK DBEAVtR. Oh! weep not that the friends ye loved, Must change anil pas? away; And weep not that i.-u beauty's check, The roses must Jfciv. And weep not iliat t!io gentle eyes, That once with kindness shone, Can meet thy gaze vit!i coldness now, And pass as though nnknown. And weep not if the friendly hand, Which fondly press'd thine own, Should raise the scornful finger now The first to cast the stone ! Weep not for these; but weep to feel The spirit's dull decay, And Time's effacing fingers steal Youth's buoyancy away. Though lovers tly, and friends deceive, Mourn not when these depart. But weep in bitterness to lose, Thy gay and guileless heart. A WORLD OF LOVE AT HOME.
