WASHINGTON. P. C . MONDAY. DECEMBER 2. 1861. PP. 2.740. JUST WHAT THE SOLDIERS WANT. Washihotow Ctrr, Nov. 25, 1861. Editor of lh.4 Star:?The following receipts for the preparation of rations given to me by soldier who has had some experience may be of service to the large nnmber of troops now in the field; and they are now published with the hope that they may add something to the comfort and health of oar large army. If they add in the slightest degree to that moat important matter, the art of oooking for soldiers, the objeot of the writer of this will have been Attained. Sunday?Roast beef and boiled potatoes for seventy-five men. Drive two forked stakes in front of and opposite the end of the cooking trenoh, place a pole across them; oat 35 pounds of beef in mall pieces of six pounds eaoh, and suspend each peioe from the pole by a string, place ome mess pans beneath to oatoh the drippings Season tne beef before suspending it before the fire. Keep a moderate fire?two hours is sufficient to oeok it. Just before the meat is done, take one quart of flour, previously scorched in a mess pan, and mix it with oeld water to the consistency of milk, pour into it the drippings from the meat, chop an onion fine, put the whole into a camp kettle, season to taste, and boil it alightly; serve with the meat. The potatoes may be boiled (while the meet is roasting) with the skins on. Monday?Pea soup. Put four quarts of peas or beans ia ten gallons of cola water; let them boil slowly for two hours, then add the vegetables?which, if dessioated, should be soaked half an hour in warm water?season to taste, put in a small piece of baeon, and boil all together for another hour, when it is done. The meat should be baoonor l>erk cooked the da? before. About one auart of flour, mixed to a thin butter, should always be added to pM or bean soap; it serves to thioken the soap, and Is a great preventive of dysentery, so apt to be oontraoted bj mei from change of water while marching. The camp kettles should be perfectly clear from grease, as peas or beans will not break if the water in which they are boiled is greasy. Tuesday.?Roast beef as on Sunday, with boiled rice as follows: quarter pint for each man. Put on the water ia which the rice is to be cooked, and let it boil, (there should be twice the quantity of water, in bulk, as of rice). When the water baits putin the rice, let it boil briskly until nearly dry, take it from the fire, eever it close, and let it steam. When it is done every grain will stand out clear. It may be eaten either with the gravy from the meat, or with molasses. Wednesday.?Beef soup and potatoes.? Cut the beef in pieces of six pounds, put them ia the pot with plenty of cold water, pepper and salt, sufficient to season the soup. About half an hour before it is taken out put in the vegetables. (The beef should be taken eut three-quarters of an hour before serving, and kept warm.) When the beef is taken out add four pounds of rice, and let it boil threequarters or an hour, then serve with potatoes. Thursday-?Beef-stew and boiled hominy. Cut the beef in small pieces of about as ounce; put them in the pot, cut up some onions and potatoes and put with it; add one quart of flour, pepper and salt to taste; mix the ingredients well, then cover the whole with water, and let it boil slowly for two hours, then serve. Boil hominy same as rice and serve. Friday.?Bean soup and boiled baoon. Made same as pea soup. Saturday ?Beef seup and potatoes. uuiKjrisr. A portion of the meat, intended for break imi, snouia always De ceoked the day before. A very nice breakfast ii made by taking the b?ef, catting it in small pieces, adding an onion, some floor, pepper and salt, a very little water, and if the beef is not fat, a few small pieces of pork or bacon, should be put with it. Hominy, also, should be cooked in sufficient quantity the day before, to leave enough for breakfast, when it may be eaten cold or sliced and fried Coffee for 75 men. 50 quarts of water, let it b?i); take 2 quarts of coffee, well roasted and ^roand, mix it with water until it forms a kind oi paste, then pour it in the water, which in all cases mast be boiling; let it boil five minutes, when it is fit for use. Important.?Take Notict.?Beans or peas should never be soaked over night, as it renders them tough, and they will not break to pieces without the use of saleratua, which should never be used. No grease or salt should be put with peas or beans until they are eooked to pieces. Beans, peas or beef should always be put into oold water, that they may heat through gradually, with the water, whioh makes them much easier to cook Meat to be carried in haversacks should be wrapped in a clean oloth or piece of paper. Men should always have a small bag of salt in their haversacks. Coffee should never be issued green or whole to parties going on detached service, and if the party be small, let each man oarrv his own m. tion of ooffee and sugar, and make it in his tin cap. Above all things cleanliness mast be observed?the kettles and pans be kept free from grease. The want of cleanliness sends more men to hospitals than any other 3*use. Pepper and articles for seasoning should be purchased from the company fund; which is made by sales of rations not eaten bj the men. Coffee should always be made in a vessel of tin, or lined with tin. Coffee made in an iron eamp kettle has a dark, muddy oolor, and is unpalatable, if not unhealthy. A kpttle or two lined with tin can be purchased from the company fund, and if the receipt for making coffee is strictly followed you will have a clear wholeseme beverage. The above reoeipts have the value of experience, and if closely followed cannot fail to produae good, wholesome, and palatable food. Breakfast for soldiers, oonsisti of coffee and bread, oold meat from the dinner of the day before, or a stew; made as above directed. Boiled pork should be permitted to drain and be thoroughly oold, More cut and eaten. Dinner?any one of the above reoeipts Supper?bread and coffee. On the march two meals per day are ordinarily prepared: breakfast ef bread, coffee and eeld meat, a piece of bread and meat oarried in the haversack, to be eaten at midday, and after getting into oamp a food substantial mm vi vkwu, cuun, 9uuu, a,0 XI prtOUCI* ble, pork and bacon should b? boiled the day before it ia required to be eaten if the water u thoroughly drained off from it, it ia thea firm and palatable.

Th* Fortification o* Fkderal Hill ?Ever since the Sth New York regiment (Zouaves) succeeded In the possession of the encampment on Federal Hill it has been regarded as a place of unusual attraction, and thousands of the unionloving citizens of Baltimore, accompanied with ladles, have experienced much gratification in being conducted through the works. To t*e casual observer, who satisfies himself by merely walking along the outworks, a very Imperfect idea of the character and extent of the fortification can only be conceived; it Is necessary to pass through the interior, and examine thorough vail the inside arrangements, in order to be well informed as to the strength of the plac?. In the first place its commanding position constitutes one of the principal advantage*, as the guns not only command the water approaches, but have a fair sweep upon the city avenues conducting towards It. There are seven bastions monnted with cannon, and near each have been constructed large maga sines, some oiiea wim oau,?ome trapp and raniiU*r. and others wltfc aucb ammunition as the batteries may require in actual service Vbe number of guns mounted at present is thirty two. and consists as follows: six eight-inch colunibiads, fonr eight-inch howitzers, aod twenty thirty-two pounders, besides which there is a battery and a naif of field pieces The most of the heavy guns are mounted on transverse circles, extending to 00 guns,and command the approach to the works The columblada were thoroughly tried before they were shipped, and will readily throw a ball to the distance of at least three miles The works have been visited bv several accomplished engineers, who pronounce them the best of the kind they have ever seen.?Bait American.
