Josiuh, his Turkey and hi Sweetheart.
Have you ever been in Windsor, Vermont ?
If so, you have hoard of Josiah Baker. Indeed
you have heard ot him even though you have not
been in the State of Vermont; tor ho U well
known as the greatest denier in poultry in all
Now England. About Thanksgiving time, you
may see in all parts of Boston, Josiah's wagons
literally crammed with turkeys, geese, chickens,
and ducks, together with pumpkins, squashes and
all manner of Thanksgiving sauce. 'Twas thought
by some, if Josiah should die without an heir to
inherit his virtues, and perpetuate the stoc! of
poultry, that Thanksgiving would have to be
Abolished altogether in that region ; for as to
l.ein" thankful on nn empty stomuch, it couldn t
in the nature of things be expected. In fact they
tried it on one occasion. Josiah didn t die to be
mire, but 'twas just as bad for the time being, as
jou shall see.
Contrary to all usage, and probably for the
sake of doing something wherewith to distinguish
.himself, tho Governor appointed Thanksgiving
on the same day which had been set apart for
that purposd in Vermont. Now, no real Yan
kee will ever absent himse'.f from his kindred on
that day, not even tor gain ; and Josiah, though
n bachelor was in tho habit of having all his
blood relations to make merry with him on that
occasion ; nnd you know the habits of an old
bachelor are not easily broken in upon, besides
his worthv sister Hester would have felt herself
cadulizod, inJeed, if she were denied tho privi;.
aUT0 of bustling, nnd scolding and storming about
nusual, in the hurry of preparation for this joy.
otis festiva'. Not that she was ill nature J or
given to scolding under ordinary circumstanccs
f ir from it ; but there is a time for everything.
Then Josiah's numerous relatives (and you hive
no idea unless you have been there how uume
rous ones relatives are in that p rt o the country )
Who were always expected to partake of the lux
uries of his farm yard, and devour, with an p
ipet'.te which fortunately returns but once a year
kiss Hester's puddings, pies, tarts, etc., would
'have felt anything but thankful, if Josiah had
iCr.no -to Boston, instead of keeping Thanksgiving
at home. But ho had no ide t of such a thing.
Ho could as well afford to keep his turkeys, as
the Boston folks could do without 'em ; and he d
tench Governor Lincoln not to appoint the same
days ns the Governor of Vermont.
So Josiah kept Thanksgiving, as in times past,
;nt homo, though his heart was not as light as us
ual for he pitied the Boston folks, and ho could
not help saying now and then us ho cut a slice
of turkey, Governor Lincoln ought to have
But though there was this drawback upon his
happiness, it was trifling, compared with the con.
vernation of the Boston people. Ilia old cus
tomers who had relied upon nun for supplies for
fifteen -cr twenty years, and had never once been
disappointed, could not believe that he would
fail to appear now ; and even on the day preced
tnjr Thanksgiving refused to purchase of others,
under the full conviction that ho would come

he came not ; and for the first time in their lives,

had got into his mind and it was not easy to ge
itout again. 1U was constantly looking about
",d observing how nice and chirp the young
women looked. Finally he concluded to open
his mind to his sister and ask her advice.
AfW weiehing the matter thoroughly arid

that none but a sister could "h'b

der to secure the latter the must make the mats-h
herself at least so far as to point out a proper
person for him to court. This was a great relief
to him, but he would have been better pleased if
she could have settled tke whole matter. For
ho had a great horror of encountering one of the
sex face to face, having lever been in company
with any but his relatiois. However, his sister,
who was in the habit of gossiping in tho intermis
sion with all the women that came to meeting,
soon made choice of a vile for her brother, in
tho person of Sally Jepson, who lived but a
couple of miles from his farm. She was (as she
told Josiah) of rugged make, thick set, whole
some looking, and as smart as a steel-trap.
So it was agreed upon that on Sunday night,
Josiuh should commence his courtship.
Accordingly, nftersupper he mounted his horse
nnd started with much fear and trembling for
Squiro Jepson's. lie rodo very alow, that he
might con over what ho should say to Sally ; but
nfter looking over many forms of speech, he
arrived at the house quite at a loss how to open
his heart. Having tied his horse to the fence, he
thought ho would reconoitre the premises before
going in ; but. although there was a light in the
sitting room, the paper curtains wero down, and
nothing could be discovered. Aftei walking
round the house two or three times, and going as
often to tho fence, to see if his horse was fastened
securely, ho finally made a desperate effort, went
to the well ana took a drink trom tno oucuet
nnd then gave a rap ot tho door. Walk in !
bawled out the bquire.
After fumbling around the house for some
time, he finally raised the latch and entered.
Why, Josiah Baker ! exclaimed ins wile,
" is that you 1 Set to tho fire.
Sally said nothing but smootlied down ncr
vandyke, laid her hands in her lap, and looked
in the fire. Tho younger children, who were
sitting on the hearth, commenced whispering
together respecting tho object of his visit ; for it
being Sunday night, they suspected he had come
a sparking Silence continued for sometime, till
the children could contain themselves no longer,
but snickered out a laughing.
" Now, pick up your legs and go to bed,"
said the Squire the dame at the same time giv
ing them a si ip, which helped them on their way
After the confusion arising from this sudden
movement had subsided, the damo asked :
"How is Miss Hester, Mr. Baker Y
' Reasonably, I thank you."
After nn interval of a tew minutes the dame
broke out ngt.in :
" I think Deacon Spring's wife must bo poorly
for 1'see she sot down in tiie last prayer and did
not get up to thit blessing."
Well, now, I uidii t mind that," said Josian.
" Why, where were your eyes, Mr. Baker?"
Ju-iiah made no reply ; for tho fact wa, his
eyc3 wero tixed upon i no corner pew on mo ngni
hand side, where sat Sally Jepson.
" Our little man was unusually solemn to-day.
I thought the self-righteous were pretty well cut
up. The shoe fitted a good many of them."
Josian replied, " les." iho trutn wns lie
would have given tho world to change the sub
ject, if he had known what to s.iy, tor his thoughts
had been with Ins eyes, upon bally, and no had
not henrd one word of the sermon.
" Even the singers seemed uncommon balked
up," said the Squire. ' I never heard them sing
louder. But I do wish the'yd give up tho new
collection nnd stick tj Mear and Bray, so that a
body could jitie with them. H. would bo much
more edify in'. And then they've got to opening
their mouths so wide' that none of tho sound goes
through the nose at all and seems to lose all the
so'emness ns it were.
"Don't you think, Mr. Baker, that tho little
man was uncommon lifted up in prayer 1" said
Fortunately for Josiah, this wns a leading quos
tion, and that blessed monosyllable came to his
relief. Just at that moment, the clock behind
the door began to strike nine, nnd before it was
done tho Squire and his wife had taken the candle
and gone to bed, cautioning Sally to cover up the
embers when Mr. Baker wns gone.
Now, though tho sudden deprrturo of tho old
folks had relieved Josiah of one dilemma, it left
him in a worse ; for here ho was alone with Sal
ly, without a singlo idea in his head, and his
tongue cleaving to tho roof of his month, which
was as dry as a owder horn.
" I believe my horse is a little uneasy," said
he after a silence of several minutes; and jumped
up and went out to tho fence, nnd walked round
a little, took another drink from the well, and
I then rushed into tho house, determined to make
! a bold Dush nnd broach tho subject at once. So
! . , m. . ..,, ,
he drew his chair up near to Sally, nnd address
ed her :
" Miss Sally ! darnation !"
Whatd'yon say, Mr. Baker I"
" Darnation 1"
" nh ! I thought you spoke to me." Sally
picked up the tongs nnd laid the brands together.
" What do you think of getting married, Miss
" Did you pek to me, Mr. Baker 1"
" Certainly I did ; there's nobody else to speak
to as I see," said Josiah looking around the room.
Sally now began to color tip, her throat it
swelled and she reminded Josiah of one of his
turkeys, and thus furnished him with a topic of
" Mis Sally, do you love turkey 1"
" So do I," said Josiah.
Which do you like best on it, applesauce
or cranberry 1"
" So di I," said Josiah.
hkh do you think is the sweetest, Sally,

est thing in all nntur' it's you."
"Now be still, Mr. Baker; mother says
praise to the face is open disgrace."
lie drew ins chair closer up to ncrs ; ior, as
he told his sister afterward, ho began to get his
"Sally, what's tho sign when anybody treads
on your toe ?"
" It s a sign they love you. Uh ! Air. liaiter,
you've mashed my foot all to pieces,"
I pon this he threw nis arms arouna ncr necx,
and gave her such a smack as Sail Jones got
when old Mrs. Jones thought her bottle of
emptin's had burst. 4
"What's the matter, my dear I" said tho
Squire, M ho was wakened out of a sound 4ieep
by bis wife's jumping up in bed. - .
" Nothiu'," said she, " i nly I heard a great
crakling just now. 1 thought at first it was your
shooting gun went oil", but I guess it's only tho
frost cumin' out of tho grounJ."
At tho mention of tho gun, tho Squire got out
of bed, and opened tho door into tho bitting
" Sally, aro you up ? What noiso was that ?"
"'Twas 'twas; 1 just shut the front door
that's all ihe noiso I heard."
" Well, you'd better put tho nail over the
door and go to bed."
The next morning the old lady fjavo Sally a
severe scolding for slamming the door so hard,
when people were asleep.
That interesting interview, and above all, that
parting kiss, was n oro than Sally Jepson could
stand unmoved ; and on the next Sunday, when
she went to church, nnd got a sly wink and nod
from Josiah, for her life she could'nt tell whether
she had a heart left among her goods and chattels
although she tried nil meeting to decide the
doubt. Josiah repeated the kiss that very eve
ning ; and performed more for ho popped tha
alternative and had tho satisfaction to see Miss
Sally blush; an infallible symptom that his
question had gone straight to her heart, nnd
caused it to flood in her cheeks.
The parson blessed the happy twain, and they
become one flesh ; very much to the delight of
all lovers of Thanksgiving dainties who in that
Union saw a periietuation of Josiah's incompar
able breed of turkeys.
Gen. Popb to his Soldieus. General Pope,
in assuming command of the army assigno.l him
on tho Potomac, issued the following address,
in which there lurks something of a satire :
Washington, Monday, July 14.
To tho Officers und Soldiers of the Army of
Virginia : By special assignment of the Presidei.t
of the United bthtes,1!' have assumed command
of this ormy. 1 have spent two weeks in learn
ing your whereabouts, your conditions nnd your
wants, in preparing you for aciivo oporatioiis,
and in placing you in position from which you
can act promptly and to the pusposo.
I have come to yon from the West, whore wc
havo always seen tho backs of our enemies
from an army whose business it has been to seek
the adversary, and then beat them when found,
whoso policy has been attack and not defense.
In but ono instance has the enemy been nble to
place our Western army in a defensive attitude.
I presume that I have been called hero to pursue
tho same system, and to lead you against the
enemy. It is my purpose to do so, and Unit
speedily. I am sure you long for nn opportunity
to win the distinction you are capable of achiev
ing that opportunity I shall endeavor to give
Meantime, I desiro you to dismiss from your
minds certain phrases which I am sorry to" find
much in vogue amongst you. I hear constantly
ot taking strong positions nnd holding them of
lines of retreat and of bases of supplies, Let
us discard such ideas. The strongest position a
soldier should requiro to occupy is one from
which he can most easily advance against the
enemy. Let us study the probable line of retreat
of our opponents, and leave our own to take
care of themselves. Let us look before us and
not behind. Success and Glory are in tho ud
vanco. Disaster nnd Shame link in the rear.
Let us act on this understanding, and it is safe
to predict that your banners shall be inscribed
with many a glorious deed, and that your names
will be dear to your countrymen forever.

Baked Beans. Few people know the luxury
of baked beans, simply, because few cooks prop
erly prepare them. Beans generally are not
cooked half long enough. This is a sure method :
two quarts middling siz.'d white hems, two
pounds salt pork, and one spoonful of molasses.
Pick the beans over carefully, wash them, add
a gallon of boiling hot soft water; let them
soak in it over night ; in the morning put them
into fresh water and boil gently till the kin is
very tender and about to break, adding a tea
spoonful of saleratus. Take them up dry, put
them in your dish, stir in tho molasses ; gash the
pork nnd pnt it down in the dish, so as to have
tho beans coverall but tho upper surlace ; turn
ill boiling water till the top is just covered ; bake
with a steady fire four or five hours. Watch
them and add more water from time to time a
it dries away.
PcsisnvEST or GcEiiniLLAS. The general or
ders respecting guerrillas are very pointed. We
quoto some of them :
Secretary Stanton says "Let them swing."
Gen. Dix advises to " shoot them on the spot."
Gen. Scofield says " Execute them Immedi
ately." Gen. Blunt says" Give them no quarter."
Gen. Loan says "Shoot them when found."
Gen. Halleck's orders are "Let them be
tried immediately by a drum head Court, and
punished with death.'

Reluliou of the Negro to the War.
Washington, July 5th, 18G2.
Editors Appeal: For the past two days,
tho reply ot Gen. Hunter to the Secretary of
War, in answer to Wicklitt's resolution of in
quiry as to whether slaves had been organized
into regiments in the military district of South
Carolina, has divided tho gossip of tho town, so
that tho great battles near Richmond docs not
engross 'he entire attention of the public. You
doubtless have ero this laid that document bo
foro your readers, so that they will be able to
pronounce mi opinion on that unique ami unusual
military report. One is at a loss to decide
whether to most admiro tho bluutness of that
sturdy old soldier or tho unsurpassed wit of his
production. It is rumored that tho rcaJing of
Hunter's dispatch was received by our fun-loving
President with something more than a broad
grin. Its reception by the House of Represent
atives was the occasion of iutensu excitement, the
Union members expressing unbounded delight,
while those w ho aro the apologists ot treason,
were as intet.sly chagrined, and mado no con
cealment of sentiments which plainly demonstra
ted that they hold the inviolability of the insti
tution of slavery as paramount to the mainten
ance of the Union. It is curious to notice that
most of the Senators and Representatives from
tho slave States favor tho confiscatiou ot all
other kinds of rebel property except slaves,
heiico theireonstantly harping about abolitionists
beng the cause of this rebellion, may be receiv
ed as evidence that their sympathies are inteiisly
with those in rebellion. Indeed there is not a
measure before Congress which in tho remotest
degree effects the peculiar institution to its det
rinieiit but the cntiie vote of tho loyal slave
Stales may be found recorded against it, and
notwithstanding the iinmcnso exhibition of the
power of tho Government to put down the in
surrection, they are growing so bold as to dictate
the terms which they are willing tho s. ceded
States shall accept on returning to tho Union.
It seems impossible to make a border State pro
slavery man realize tho vast change which has
taken place in the relations of slavery in Mary
Ian I, Virginia, Tennessee t nd Missouri since
the oulbrako of this civil war. In all of the
border slave States tho handwriting is on the
wall and the doom of slavery is ceitain and its
rapid cxtictiou already nearly accomplished; yet
ill the face of this, there is a strange infatuation
among those people so desolated by this slavery
war, that they exhibit on all occasions the most
childish petuleiico when it is suggested that sla
very alone has been the cause ot this calamitous
aud most unnatural strife. Early in the session
members from tho"1 free States deferred greatly
to tho opinions and wishes of those who repre
sents sections having a largo hostile papulation,
with the hope that members representing slave
dis riots would lead oil" in tho work of bringing
their people to bo progressive in a State policy
which should have tor its object tho emancipation
of slavery at its earliest practicable moment;
but Northern forbearauco has been met with a
jealous aggressive response, until a deep nnd
permanent reaction has taken place among the
great mass of the Northern people, hoslilo to
slavery. A few nights since a great mass meet
ing was held in New York for tho purpose of
organizing a Conservative Union parly, tho chief
spokesmen at which wero Wicklilio ot Kentucky,
and Duer of New Y'ork, with Fernando WooJ
and James Broo!s for lesser lights. Thu watch
cry was " The Uuion ns it was and tho Consti
lution as it is," meaning, doubtless, the Union
as it was under tho administration of Buchanan,
Floyd As Co. Tho speech of Wukliflb wus
tluoiighont an undisguised defense ot secession,
ho charging that all our national troubles were
caused by abolitionists, while the twaddle of
Duer was to tho effect that tho North is always
wrong wlulo tho boiilh is always right, ihe
only pointed 'sentence- in his Rhodomoutado was,
that he would like to have Jeff Davis hung as
the first man and Charles Sumner ns the second.
Now, it is all very well when tho wish is applied
to that arch rebel Davis, but for old Duer, who
was once elected by the Republicans to the
County Clerkship in San Francisco and is now
living in his old uge on the emoluments received
fro i u that ofliee, to utter so atrocious a sentiment
as connected with his mention of Sumner, is nn
outrngo on common decency. Charles Sumner
it is true, is an ultra uncompromising enemy ol
slavery, but withal a defender of the Coiistitu
lion and the Union, and had such opinions as lie
so eloquently maintains been the rule of llnsna
lion tor tho last half century, there would bo no
cause in all this broad laud for a civil war which
will involve countless treasure and cost, tho re
mature death of half a million of tho young men
ol the nation, carrying into utmost every home
a desolation and sorrow w hich will pas away
only with tho generation. Hypocritical toadies,
these delectable patriots pass by in silence such
men ns Lincoln and Seward, who equally with
Sumner und others fought the long and doubtful
tilit which aroused a public opinion in tho North
powerful enough to rescue this Government
trom the grasp of traitor, and carry it through
tie most tremendous conflict ever evoked against
liberty. I shall attempt no defense of Charles
Sunnier, the purity of his motives and the
power of his logic alike have a wide acknowledg
ment. Doubtless in his zeal for a great cause he
advances opinions probably impracticable in
application at this time, nevertheless it must be
admitted that all of his theories are in harmony
witli an enlightened Christianity.
It is a matter of deep regret that there should
be any wrangling or difference among those who
placed tho present aduiinisUatioii in power, as
it only tends to encourago a hope among those
favoring the rebels to organize an opposition to
the effectual prosecution of the war. This sup
posed division among the Republicans is ti e
trw st which drowning Democrats are catch
ing. There need be no doubt in thu public mind
about thu integrity of the President, and his
determination to conduct the administration of
tho Government so that all will bo well with the
great interests of free labor. In connection with
this subject it may not bo out ot place to state
that there can scarcely be found ono of our
soldiers who is in favor of permitting tho insti
tution of slavery to retain political power in our
government hereafter, and those who left home
as Democrats express tho greatest indignation
that political partisans should attempt to raise
party issues in this time of common peril. Tho
action of the Republicans in Oregon in uniting
with Uuion men at their Into election, thereby
aehlavlng a victory ovur traitors, lins had n most
happy effect on her interests here nnd the same
may bo said of California, nnd it is to bo hoped
that tho latter will elect a Legislature which will
send hero no qunliliod Union" man, but ono
whi will meet treason mid traitors as they
should bo met at ull times nnd on nil occasions.
It would bo a heavy blow to tho good name of
California should sho elect a Legislature this fall
which would re-elect a U. S. Senator whose ad
hesion to the Democratic party made question.
able his fidelity to tho Union.
Skimming Milk. A country woman says :
' Tho wise men, in enumerating the tiino and
seasons, made no mention of a time to skim
milk ; yet, nevertheless, there is a time a right
time too, and that time is just as tho milk is
hrgining to sour in the bottom of the pans.
Then the cream is all at the surface, and should
be removed and with as little milk as possible.
If allowcl to remain until the acid reaches tho
cream, it impairs its quality. Tho house-wife,
or dairy-maid, who thinks to obtain a greater
quantity by allowing tho milk to stand beyond
that time, labors under a most egregious mistake.
ny oue who doubts this, has only to try it and
prove the truth of tho assertion. Milk should
ba looked to at least three times a day."
