DEMOCRATIC BANNER. PUBLISHED tiegularly on every Mnulay Morning at Louisiana, Pike County, Mo. H. F. Ml'KUAY, Editor and Proprietor. From Mrs. Opie's Poems. THE ORPHAN BOY'S TALE. Staj, lady, slay, for mercy's sake, And hear a helpless orphan's tale, Ah ! sure my looks must pity wake, 'Tis want that makes my cheek so pale. Yet I was once a mother's priJe, And my brave father's hope and joy; Bu: in the Nile's proud fiqht he died, And I am now an orphan boy. Poor foolish child ! how pleased was I When ne A-s of Nelson's victory came, Along the crowded streets to fly, And see the lighted windows flume ! To force me home my mother sought, She could not bear to see my joy; For with my father's life 'twas bought, And made me a poor orphan boy. The peopls's shouts were long and loud, My mother, shiiddorinp closed her ears, 'Rejoice! rejoi e!" still cried the crowd; My mother answered with her tears. 'Whv are vcu crvins thus," said I, "While others laugh and shout with joy?" Mie kissed me a...

VALUE AND ABUSE OF TIME. What b time? A fragment broken off from the endless vast, upon which Eternity gazes with intense solicitude an isolation, singly poised upon the will of Omnipotence, awaiting, with trembling anxiety, the migh ty fi'it which shall place it back again, wit! an us aucnuani consequences, upon me gloomy void whence it came. The peri odical manifestation of an unassociated inte gral of measureless duration, separated for a brief space from its original paternity, and for purposes beyond the ken of mind, placed in independent revolution. In an pliance, a drop of divine media, taken from the fountains of Eternal grace, in wlncli glitters and glows, like the bow of promise upon the bosom ot the tempest, an lllumina ted pathway, planted by the hand of Mercy, for immortality's escape from the bondage of sin and death. If, minutes properly val ued, are gold drops upon the stream of Time, wisdom gathers & improves folly gazes and neglects. And he who passes through l...

In the different works ( but mostly in the church) taken by Gen. Twiggs, near 2,000 troops were captured. Among the in was Gen. Rincor., who commanded in person, Gen. Anaya. lately President SuslUuto, and Gen. Arcvallon, as also Col Gorosteza, for merly minister at Washington. Col. Garay was captured near San Antonio by General Worth, and several influential onicers, among them Col. Miramon by Gen. Shields, at the hacienda; but the most important cap ture of all was the entire Foreign Battalion mostly made up of deserters from our own army, with their commander, the notorious Riley himself. They are now under close guard, and I trust will be strictly dealt with. The loss on our side has fallen most heavi Iy upon the South Carolina and New York volunteers, the 6th Infantry and Smith's light battalion, attached to Worth's division and the batteries of Capt. Magruder and Taylor. The South Carolina regiment was nearly cut to pieces, losing 137 out of 272 men, with which it went into act...

BY SUNDiY MONIKG'S MAIL. SANTA ANNA'S MANIFESTO, OF THE BATTLES OF AUGUST 19 akd 20. The following account of the battles of Coutreras and Churubusco, although erro neous in many particulars, shows in a stron Hcrht than cren the accounts or our own correspondent, the splendid and deci ded nature of the late victories of Gen Scott From the tenor of this, the tamest and most subdued document which has been written during this war, by the self- complacent and boastful Mexican, it will be seen that Santa Anna still keeps up his .old habit of shuffling the responsibility off from his own upon the shoulders of an infe nor officer. Gen. Valencia is the scape goat of the battle of Churubusco, as Minon ii of the battle of Buena Yista. Jvttc Orleans Picayune.

Editorial correspondence of the Picayune. I Tacubata, August 27, IS 17. The official report of Gen. Salas, who was second in command at Contreras and who is now a prisoner, has been published in Mexico. He admits that his defeat was total, but as usual lays the blame on some of his brother officers. He says that on the afternoon of the 19th (this teas whili no one was returning their fire) the Mexicans fought with uncommon valor and enthusiasm, but that early on the morning of the 20th August they were suddenly sur- rounded and at once thrown into confusion, and in the end utterly routed. Salas says that at the outset of the disorder he shout ed "Victory for Mexico," ordered the trum pets to sound, and directed Gen. Torrejon to charge with his lancers; but according to the same account that officer tied ...

-.Tv-v AN INTERESTING PICTURE. Bennett, in one of his recent letters from London, speaking of the advance of Re publican Principles in England, closes with the following glance at things as they are: "This will be a great and a long struggle, for in England reform has terrible obstacles to overcome. As yet, England will go on for years in her present hum-drum pace. Parliament will try to legislate away all their social evils but all legislation will be fruitless to releive the social evils of Ireland, or any part of the country. The aristocracy maintains 300,000 servants 200,000 horses 600,000 dogs 100,000 grouse, and 500,000 game of all kinds, all to minister to their pride and pleasure. These men, beasts and birds consume -the food of idleness, which would feed the star ving Irish, and all others of the lower class. Here is the dangerous condition of Eng land a condition that is increasing in mag' nitude every year, and reaches a crisis, whenever any of the crops fail. It is a soc...

IS" Since the hero of Buena Vista ha kicked himself loose from the grasp of the Whig partizans, some of them are begin ning to look around, for some more full "embodiment of Whig principle!." They are mortified and chagrined at the course of the old Gen. He has :n effect declared, that he knows nothing about their political questions; and cannot under any circum stances consent to become the candidate of a party. They had expected to find in him an available candidate, by seizing upon his military fame. But the old soldier is too honest, to suffer himself to be used by a corrupt and unscrupulous cabal of politi cians. Perfectly indifferent to all their ca jole, he has to this time, constantly turned the cold shoulder upon thein. Hence the murmurs that are every day growing louder in the Whig camp. Some of them are now convinced, that they cannot use him as a catspaw; and by his aid fasten upon the ...

THIS WORLD OF OURS. BY W. J. BAKER. T.iis world of ours if free from sin, Oh I would it not be fair ! Sunshine above and flowers beneath, And beauty every where ! The air, the earth, the waters teem With living things at play, Glad nature from a hundred throats Pours her rejoicing lay. Each balmy breeze that wanders by Whispers son e angel tone; And the clear fountains have a voice Of music of their own. Even the leaves of the forest tree, Moved by the zephyr's wing, Make a low murmur of content To little birds that sing. The busy bees o'er girden flowers A holy song attune, Joining with never-tiring mirth The minstrelsy of June : And the great waves upon the deep, Leaping like giants free, And, in their hollow monotone, The chorus of the sea. There's beauty In the summer sky, When from his ocean bed. Like a strong man refreshed by sleep, The sun uplifts his head; And when behind the western rocks At eventide he goes, How beauteous arc the crimson clouds That curtain his repose ! Ar...

Fbom Pike Co., Ills, again. We have been politely furnished by Mr. Shaw, at present of this place, a an ear of corn grown on his farm in Pike Co. Illinois, measuring 14 1-2 inches in length, well filled and sound. It is of the yellow kind, known to weigh well to the bushel, and believed to contain more nutriment than the white or mixed corn, commonly raised. The pure white or yellow also brings a better price when shipped, the farmers should recollect this fact. 23-The political friends of Gov.
