tor's remarks above, viz; that " the Indi
ans in Arkansas eat the green ears as
their every day food." It is more proba
ble that the creatures at least roasted
them, a very easy and obvious process,
even fih savags,-and we will add, good
en101h, when well done, for Christian
Prines. Indeed Indian Corn. as a table
vegetable, is one of the best of American
resources for a good dish at short notice.
But when we consider its other uses, as
bread and as food for stock, may we not
indeed bow the knee in thankfulness to
the Great Giver ? If Cotton be King, and
l)7Feat be Quen. among the productions
of nature, American Corn is, to say the
least, Prime minister of the Court.

a long variety of otlier articles of human

There is another fact we would make a
note of: it is, that'both the 1tutioes,-tllhe

these to Indian Curn, and it itiy safely

maintain their supremacy in the market, havin:
boon awarded THIRTY-EIGHT PRIZE MED

their instruments exhibited at various Fairs in
this country and Europe.
They have had an Agency in this City for about
thirty years, where thousands of their PIANOS -
have been sold to the ENTIRE SATISFACTION
OF EVERY PURCHASER. And to protect their
well-merited reputation as manufacturers, and the
public from being imposed upon, it has become
necessary to publish that every Piano made by
them bears upon the "name board" ", CHICKE R.
ING, BOSTON," in the old English and Rnman
letters, and upon the "sounding board" " ChICK
ERING & SONS, BOSTON," with the number
of the Piano.
JACOB CHICKERING is not a relation ol
theirs, and has no business interest with them.
