TURKEY.—The paragon of poultry is in full

Everybody buys him, tint everybodi 'is 'not

have always differed. NB to the best mode of
dressing him. Boyer says it is rank heresy to
boil him ; `Stivarin recommends that he be
stuffed with truffles—a loud-smelling, wormy,
leathery, indigestible species of fungi—and
meted ; another Frenchman recommends a
lining of chestnuts, and an old English cookery
book tells us to " fix " him after this fashion:
"Take and dune your turkey on the backe
and bruise all his bones ; then season with
stilt and pepper, grasie beaten, and put into
him good store of butter ; he must have five
hours bakinge." The last prescription is
worthy of the Vandals.

Tits CITY YISTIIRDAY. — Great Rejoicing.—The
jubilant feelings excited among our citizens by
the reception of the news of the victory of Fort
Outlaw') last Sunday evening, Its' confirmation
yesterday, together with the additional glorious
news of the capture of Savannah, culminated
this morning in a grand; spontaneous; public
demonstration, which for a time fairly shook
the city to its centre, and made the streets re
sound with the merry Peals of joy.
At an early hour the gorgeous 'flag of our
Union was unfurled from a hundred fitg-staffs,
and displayed from the windows of a number of
private residences throughout the city, giving
the streets a gala and picturesque appearance
that was cheerful to look upon.
About ten o'clock Ulman's famous battery,
preceded by a fall brass band, arrived in the
city, and took a position with their field pieces
on the public grounds in front of the State ar
senal, where, after some preliminary arrange
ments had been made, the company proceeded
to fire a n -tional "salute of thirty-four gnus.
The report of the first gun had scarcely ceased
Its loud reverberations among the surrounding
houses, when first one of the church bells, then
another, and another, until finally every bell
in the city joined.its sonorous peals to the.gen
eral clamor:of rejoicing—arousing the entire
population, and producing the wildest excite
The House of Representatives, in session at
the time, adjourned over one hour, the mem
bers, doubtless, not being able to stand the
pressure of the excitement, and concluded to
" go in" themselves.
After the firing of the salute, the artillery
company, preceded by the band, favored our
citizens with a street parade, and attracted
much attention by the soldierly-lit e appearance
of the men, and the precision with which they
executed various military evolutions. A drum
corps, with fifers, from Camp Curtin, also pa
raded the streets, and constituted no inconsid
erable amount to the general demonstration.
Altogether the demonstration was highly
creditable to the city, and especially so to the
few gentlemen towhose exertions alone, we are
indebted for the bell-ringing feature of the oc
casion. We have witnessed many previous
intpromtu demonstrations of this character in
our city, but never any in which the citizens
showed so much heart-felt gratification and
genuine enthusiasm. Joy was manifested on
every countenance—it seemed to overspread the
city. The deep-toned guns, and the sonorous
peals of the bells conveyed the glad tidings of
the victories into every household. To-night
the theme will engross a thousand happy fire
sides, end the prayers and thanks that go rt., to
heaven will have nothing formal about them.
The Union arms have regained their prestige.
Our sons, fathers, and countrymen are either
proud in victory or prouder in death. The
shame of our flag has been washed out in
blood ; the rivers of the garden of our Conti
neat carry the sails of the Union, and agony
and gloom are tenants of hundreds of disloyal
dwellings. The soldier, the sailor—perhaps
the slave—looks up. Our banners are blessed;
our bayonets arebristling—let "Secesh" stand
Buasmaas ABOUT. —The meat shop of Faux
Boma, Butcher, in South street, near Second,
was burglariously entered Monday night last,
and robbed of about sixteen dollars of meat,
and a small quantity of silver change in the
money drawer. The robber effected an en
trance to the establishment through a win
dow on South street, bat made his exit by the
door leading to a small alley running between
South and State streets. Strong suspicion is
attached to an individual well known about
the establishment, as being the robber, and it
is not unlikely that developments will shortly
be made that will warrant his arrest.

TRANSPORTATION OR THE lISNAINS OF DIONASRD
Mr. LANDON called up Senate bill entitled,
an act providing for the transportation of the

The bill was read.
Mr. IRISH. It occurs to me that this act
does not point out the mode by which railroad
companies aro to be compensated for the servi
ces contemplated by the bill.
Mr. 111cULIIRE, I suggest to the Senator
that authority for this, transportation may be
found in the fact that the Executive issues
passes on the different railroad for .military
purposes. The transportation of the remains
of decease 4 soldiers being included in the cate
gory of "military purposes," the State will be
made liable for this expense.
Mr. LANDON. There is a certain depart
ment connected with the soldiers, Mr. Speaker,
which has the care of the transportation busi
ness. Yesterday I was informed a member of
the army, in camp here, from one of the coun
ties I represent, had died, and his friends de
sired's, certificate of transportation. I went to
the proper department, and they said they had
no authority to grant any such certificate on
such a metier. They regretted this very much;
and upon the suggestion of that department,
this bill was drawn np to meet the emergency.
The expense of transporting in this particular
will come under the general auditry of bills for
