1 -sry ft DEMOCRATIC DINNER. PUBLISHED Regularly on eoery Mjnday Morning at Louisiana, Pike County. Mo. S. F. 9IUKRAY, Editor and Proprietor. From the Saturday Courier. Wilt thou again those Vows repeat ? BY MBS. CARXV. Farwell, dear youth ! when next wc meet, If meet again we may, wilt thou those vows of love repeat, Thiil thou hast sworn to-day ? I know that now thy gen'rous breast With fervent pission glows; And on thy love and truth, profess'd, My dearest hopes repose. But time and absence oft destroy Each hope, young love had rherish'd, And prove them false as dreams of joy, That with the day-light perish'd. And, oh! 'tis sad to think, how soon The bloom of beauty Hies; A morninjr flower that fades at noon, And in the evening dies. That thou ht sworn tn-day ? FAITH AND WORKS. r?

A LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVE. BY SPE8 S ARGENT. A Life on the ocean wave! A home on the rolling deep! Where scattered waters rave, And the winds their revels keep, Like an eagle eaged, I pine On this doll unchanging shore; . Oh, giro me the flashing brine, The spray, and the tempest's roar. Once more on the deck I stand Of my own swift gliding craft. Set sail ! farwell to the land: The gale follows far abaft. We sport through the sparkling foam Like an ocean bird set free; Like the ocean bird, our home We'll find far out on the sea. The land is no longer in view, The clouds have begun to frown; But with a stout vessel and crew, We'll say let the storm come down. And the song of oar hearts shall be, While the winds and waters rave, A life on the heaving sea! A home on the bounding ware ! - FACTS FOR FARMERS There is something that farmers ought to know. It is an error to plant seeds from a State further eouth. In a cold searon only the seed of a colder climate will ripen well. Often brea...

1 "THE GIRL 1 LEFT BEHIND ME. It is well known that tlie air of this popu- lir Stong is played by the drums and fifes: during the embarkation of an English or American army about to open a foreign campaign. The Mexicans, doubtless think ing that there is some virtue in it, have, since the battle of Cerro Gonlo, adopted it in theif own army; but in compliment to Santa Anna they call it "THE LEG I LEFT BEHIND ME." I'm stumpless quite, since from the shot Of Cerro Gonlo peggm', I left bcIiinJ to pay the Scott, My grub and gave my leg in. I dare not turn and view the place, Lest Yankee foes should find ine; And, mocking, shake before my face, The leg I left behind me. At Buena Vista, I was sure, "That Yankee" would surrender; And bade my men "Hurrah ! for you're All going on a bender." That all my hopes and plans were dash'd, My scattered troops remind me; Bat though I there got soundly thrash' J I left no le behind me.
