We eonld not imagine that any stale of things would occur by which corn meal could he sul>sti nite l and tolerated for wheat H •««r in Rngliind. |hit liurujer. it is said, will break through Stone wall*; *n,l Indian corn, supposed to lie a wild production of nor prairies, w hich lias been um and over again rejected by thp Koglish people, is (invv qnoted at an extraordinary high price in their markets. V\ hen \\ 11 limn Cobhett, the celebrated political writer ami e-ununiist, Cultivated a farm on Long Island,une of his ofcjeri* w as to familiarive himself with the culture of Indian corn, lor the express purpose of trying the experiment in certain congenial Rolls in Rngland, and lie raised corn of a very fine character, but found on his arrival In.. that the specimens both id the corn ami meal, the hoe cake and corn bread lie had baked, were universally rejected. He entreated the po I lineal economists of the day to give it a fair trial. 'J'liey refused, lie wrote pamphlet after pam phlet explanatory of its virtues, and circulated thousands «f copies gratuitously; for. with all Colihell’s political faults, lie was undeniably a friend in the poor. Rill there was no famine then, no short crops, and ihe British Nation acted as it they never expect'd a drought, or a murrain, or a failure of crops. They unceremoniously rejected pern meal. They said that the cattle would nut eat it, and for some cause, they suceringlv added, that a hog would not make Ins first meal upon it. But affairs have SMiet taken a change. The cattle arc not allowed m cornu near the Indian meal _ Il is required lor the poor, ami evpn tho Queen herself has break lasted on some of the corn Oread and fresh holier—the most nutritions of all farina ceous productions. The Indian corn has now vin dicated itself, ami stands high m the affections and appetites of all Kurnpp. We now expect to 8Pe the experiment generally mndo to raise it ; and there most lie soils and climates in B'nrope where it will grow luxuriantly, if iliey understand how In cultivate It, and where it will also afford capital fodder for animals. Hut admit that In dian corn will not grow in Europe and Hint ihe supply will he furnished from this country, and suppose the demand to rtmlinno. the question will | he asked, what influence w ill that supply have on I our crops? We answer, very trifling $upp .se we produce /Ice hundred millions of bushel*. i which is a hunt the crop of 1840. the amount we shall export fur foreign ennsumpti n in ordinary times cannot exceed twenty millions. This is upon the presumption that corn is used in Europe ns an article of human food. But suppose the potato to revive. Indian corn will heroine :i cheap arlicle of food for cattlp At all events, the present high price will have a powerful effect upon all our crops this year. We shall probably raise eight hundred million bushels of corn, and even cotton planters will find it a more profitable emp than cotton. 'I’lte agriculturists in tl^e valley of the Missis sippi will produce an extra quantity on the rich alluvial soil of nor prairies. It is startling to know the fact that Corn Meal in England should sell as high as whenten flour, but the grand secret has leaked nut loo late to gratify Cohhett, yet soon enough to sustain all his declarations, that inde pendent of the many ways of cooking Indian meal, it is ascertained that it is a belter arlicle of food than wheat fl.utr. An Artificial Man —The Memorial Borde lais says, that near St Sevier, there lives an old Soldier, with a lalse leg, a false arm, a glass eye, a complete set of false teeth, a nose of silver, cov tn d with a substance resembling flesh, and silver plates replacing part of his skull.
