DEMOCRATIC DINNER. PUBLISHED Regularly on every Monday Morning at Louisiana, Pike County, Mo. g. F. MURRAY, Editor and Proprietor. WHIG COMPLIMENT TO GEN. TAYLOR. Tho Massachusetts Legislature lias de clared that "the present war is waged -gloriously, by a powerful nation against a weak neighbor," "without just cause," "for the dismemberment of Mexico," "for extending slavery," &c, and "that such a war of conquest, so hateful in its objects, so wanton, unjust and unconstitutional in its origin and chaiacter, must be regarded as a war against freedom, against humanity, against justice, against the Union, against the constitution and against the free States." It then passed a resolution of thanks to Gen. Taylor for waging the war "inglorf ously," against freedom, justice, humanity, the Union, constitution and free States. It is thus that the Whigs compliment Taylor. We cannot well conceive how his charac ter can be more foully aspersed. If the war has been waged ingloriously, Tayl...

From the Saturday Courier. OUR JEANIE. The sweet-briar in the vale displayed The brightest flowers of June; The warbler from the scented shade Discoursed in sweetest tune. At early morn and dewj eve Our Jeanie sought the lea. To kiss the fragrant gems, jet leave The roses on the tree. Across the mead with airy tread She dashed the diamond dew, Yet nerer crushed the violet's head, But blessed it where it grew She heard the bird with russet breast Give forth its matin lay; And innocently watch the nest Swinging on the tender spray. The rose is bright upon the tem, And pure the violet wild; But brighter, purer is the gem, A young heart undented. Long did our gentle Jeanie mourn The blossoms on the heath, When came the ruthless plough to turn The flowery soil beneath. But now the tender maid that trod In beauty on the mead, Sleeps low beneath the furrowed sod That Time ploughs o'er th dead. The rose-tree waves upon her breast, And there the violets bloom; The warbler sings, beside its n...
