Rinse beans; place in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover beans by 2 inches. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover; let stand for 1 hour. (Or, place the beans in a large bowl. Cover with water to about 2 inches above beans. Allow to soak in a cool place overnight.) Drain and rinse beans.
Skin the chicken; set aside. Halve sausage lengthwise and cut into 1-inch pieces. In a medium mixing bowl combine drained beans, sausage, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, bouillon granules, basil, oregano, and paprika. Set aside.
In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart crockery cooker combine the carrot, celery, and onion. Place chicken pieces on top. Pour bean mixture over chicken. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 9 to 11 hours or on high-heat setting for 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours. Remove chicken and sausage with slotted spoon. Mash bean mixture slightly. Serve chicken, sausage, and beans in soup bowls. Makes 6 servings.
