Johnston has received at the hands Of the President
deoervea the aeverest censure. This is no time to
indulge pergonal animotity or political favoritism,
and I honently believe if our government should
eventually rcti to its fall, the raiue cau be traced
back, with unerring cettainty, to Jetlerson Davis.
He has kept aucb men as Johnston and QMtBTM W.
Bmith in tlie background, from feelings of personal
hatied, and sent his fayotitm to the field, and in
each positions that they had neither the skill not
capacity to sustain.
There never was a period in the history of onr
country, so auspicious lor renouncing the principles
and prejudices of tne Demagogue, and assuminc
the position of the exalted Statesman. Old party
liuea were obliterated, and WMg and Democrat bore
the name of Jeff, rsnn Du rftf to the polls without a
dissenting voice ; but no sooner was he installed
into office, than his Democracy unveiled itself, and
has left its impress upon the principal acu of his
reign.
God save this noblest part of the land of Wash
ington from party prejudice, and crown oor arms
with success! "

CUKINtt H.V.HS.
As the time is at hand for preparing
these useful stores of rich and savory
food, a lew words will not he out of
plaee in regard to them. The legs of
hogs short in ihe hock are the best for
hams, and should be rhosen in prefer
once to lanky legs. They may be salted
by immersion in a cle:n pickle contain
ing a little sugar and saltpetre dissolved.
or they may be salted by rubbing ground
solar evaporated salt over them, turning
them every day, and giving , them a
good rubbing. A little sugar and
'round pepper added to the salt much
iniproyee the flavor of the meat. It re
quires about a month to salt hams by the
wet process, and three weeks by tho
dry syplem. At the end of this period.
they should be hung up a few days to
drip, and they are ready for imoking.
Much depends on the kind of materia)
used for smoking ihern, so as to secure a
sweet flavor. Whatever fuel is used for
losidenibly longer than I this purpoe, one condition should never
, because iie lives slow; f be overlooked: it should.be perfectly
dry, else it will be apt lo impart a bitter
taste to the meat. Dry corn-cob, and
some dry sweet hay, are superior to all
other agents that we. have seen employed
for smoking beef or hams.
Mutton bams may be prepared in the
same manner as those of pork, and they
are exceedingly palatable when the meat
is good, and csre exercised to smoke
them slowly.
TIIE ICCRBT OF LONGEVITY.
Toe 'means known, so far, of promoting
longevity, Imve usually concentrated in short,
pithy sayings M "keep your head cool am'
four feet Warm" -'Work much and eat lit
t If.'' Ac, just as if tlie whole science c
human lift could be attained n and broogb
ml in a few words, while its great principle!
were kept init of sight. O.ie ot the bell i
these saying! is given by an Italian in hii
hundred and sixteenth year, who bein;j nsk
ed the reason of his living o long, replit
with that improvisation for which his conn
;ry is remarkable :
When hungry, of the best I eat,
And dry and warm I keep my feet;
I screen my head from sun and rain,
And let few cares perplex my brain.
The following Vs about- the best' theory oi
the matter: Every loan is born with a cet
lain slock of vitality, which cannot lie if
reaied. but may be husbanded. With thi.-
-iioi k be may live fast or slow may live t
naively or intensively may spread his lit
tle amount of lite over a large space, or nar
row it rtifo a contracted one; but when thic
Itocjc is exhausted lie has no more. He who
livel extensively, drinks pure water, av6bj
all inflammatory diseases, exercises sufficient
ly but not laboriously, indulges no exhaust ing
passion, feeds on no exciting material, pur-
ues no debilitating pleasures, avoids all la
borious and protracted study, preserves an
las? mind, and thus husbands his quantum
of vitality, will live cons
be otherwise would do
while he, on the other band, who lives in
tensely who beverages himself on liquors
and wines, exposes himself to intlammaforv
licenses, or causes that produce them, labors
frond nil strength, visits exciting scenes
mil indulges exhausting passions, and lives
on stimulating and highly seasoned food, it
klwayt debilitated by bis pleasure.

No Farther Fighting on the Rnpidan.
Nbw York, Dec. 2. The Washington cor
respondent of the Evening Post, of the 1st,
say the courier, employed by the newspa
pers, came in from tien. Meade s headquar
ters early tlis morning. He left the south
side of the Rapidan yesterday morning, and
no serious fighting had occurred up to that
hour. It was not then believed that Meade
would attack Lee before to-day, and it was
considered possible that no battle would be
fought, as the army only carried rations for
a verjl brief campaign. It will have to fight
soon or fall back for fresh supplies. It is
possible that when Meade has finished the
work he bus undertaken, he will fall back
upon Fredericksburg, though nothing is
