Culture of Indian Corn.
EDITORS OF TIM rrLTIVATOR must be appa-

'om crop is immense to our country, and as almost
every cultivator of the soil, t} rougliout all its varied
climate ; ar4l on all of its variety of soils, is a grow
er of this crop to a greateior less extent, it become' ,
'a matter of importance that sit should be managed
to the best advantage. t know of no bener way to
arrive at the desii - ed re-ult than the practical evpe
i:ence cit. successful corn-growers, made public
through the columns of the agricultural press. We
may all learn something from one another:: indeed'
never had hired a man even. in my life, how ev.

something . , from which I obtained anew idea. These

in the more favorable seasons and on my. best lands
it will come up to 80 to 90 bushels per acre. It is
proper oho to state that some of the fields would
not cut 500 lbs. of hay to the acre ten years ago.
The land intended for corn is alWays broken up
from 6 to 9 inched 'deep. varying with the quality
of the soil, late iii The fall, in 'order to that perfect
pulverization of the soil which the frost of winter
contributes so essentially to secure. The plowing

ed depth is turned over. I have been troubled to

to receive them. There heaps are ranged at con
venient distances to load into the cart in the spring.

travel, and contain 30' to 40 loin's each, which is
the quantity usually applied to the acre,

the manure is laid on the land in small heaps; the
rows of heaps about four paces apart, and the heaps
in the rows a little less distance apart, bexanse a gi

be spread with more ease and expedition by Mali-
Mu more heaps of a load, and placing them near

The brow, going twice in a place, is started as
soon as the workmen commence spreading 'the
manure, in order that it shall be immediately' ineor
vorate4l with the soil without the toss of its valuable
properties by evaporation, and also to divide and
pulverize the soil above the sod, so that the plow af

as ari i 4orz e
.130,§140, I bad by actual ex-
Eiejiment, that a closely planted field will not stand
drought near as long as a field planted wider
apart. Every stalk requires its due proportion of
moisture trern the earth in order to carry the ear of
corn to fell perfection,' and of 'coarse the greater
number of stalks to the acre, the greater the draft
upon the soil for moisture. 10 planting on a scale
of 8, to 12 acres, therefore, I go for more space be
tween the hills, notwithstanding there has been
much said in favor of 11-hading the ground by close
phintina to prevent the etiects of drott.tht. It is of
( . 07 ,:id era ble impo r tance In have stra't_rlit rows both
war, the use of the horse. and cultivator being
much mote effective in this case than in crooked
tows : beside,.no farmer having a spark of honest
pride wishes n gaze all summer at so unsightly an
oblext es crooked corn rows, or expose the same to
t he gam of others.
In planting the corn, which, is a Mee operation,
care is used to scatter it well iu the hill, pitting; in
6to 8 kernels. I always direct Ike planters to oc
cupy Bto 12 inches square with each hill. This
may appear a small matter to some, but it is a fact
that corn planted thus will ear heavier, and' there
will be more stalks baring two good ears, than if
the coninthri practice of tumbling the corn into the
hill at hap-hazard is pursued. Indeed one" could
better afford to pay a man two dollars a day to plant
corn in the way I have recommended than the
common, rice, planted in the common way. The
is ered at least 3 inches deep in sandy and
gravelly . ...oi A., for two reasons. In this section of
country we frequently have late spring frosts which
nip - the corn after it is up, and if covered but slight
-1 ly the vitality of the tender plant is often destroyed
Iby freezing dawn to the roets, whereas, if cov
ered 3 inches deep, no permanerit injury is done
.V.rain we sometime. have dry weather about plant
ing time, and if the earth dr . % a down to the corn af
ter it has sprouted, it may not come up at all ; if it
does it will be a long time about it, and at the end
of three weeks will not bear as vignrons as that
planted deeper. The seed is planted dry. I have
tied a vhriety of steeps for seed corn, buthave set
tled down to the impression that it is as welt plant
er%) dry. as any way. The most effectual "scare
crow" I have ever lotted : ls a line of white twine
strung round the field, and supported by long strikes. i
In working the corn after it is up, the main de
pendence is upon th e horse • • and cultivator. The I
construction of many of the cultivators is faulty.—
The upper part of the Moth is so short, and the
frame work in consequences is brought so near the
ground, that the implement goes bobbing about cm
cr the top of the weeds, cloy ding up -with every
impediment it meets—the weeds of course are no t
cut off or rooted up in a thotough or desirable man•
ner, although I
grant they are somewhat airMeird. At
weeding time the horse and cu'tivator passthrough
the rows both ways perfectly pulverizing and mel
lowing the soil, and as the rows are alw Ts straight
the soil is worked up close to the hills each way,
rendering the labor of weeding•with the hoe com
paratively light. The com is again worked both
ways with the horse and cultivator at the second
hoeing, the feeble stocks are pulled out, leaving 4
to 6 standing in a hill, and a broad, flat hill made.
I firid it cheaper for me, so far as labor isconcemed
to earth up a little than to hoe peaeetly level, and
the hills being made broad and flat, it is, for any
thing I can discover, equally as well for the corn.
I never hoe but twice. 'laving plowed the laud
the previons autumn, nothing green started up be-
fore the winter set in, and the frost immediately fol
lowing the grass roots were killed. In the spring
the.land was well harrowed above the sod; there
were no seeds of weeds in the manure, it being
well fermented compost, and thus the work of .the
season was in ,gr, eat. measure done before the seed
was planted. After the second hoeing the corn has
the entire; occupation of the ground, no farther trou
ble being experienced from weeds of any kind.—
The thorough working of the land before planting,
and a:so by the use of the. horse and cultivator
through straight rows both trays, at the first and see.
and hoeing,. has the farther advantage of bringing
the corn along through the fore part of the season
with great rapidity, which is of essential importance
particularly in our northern latittaes.
There is no variety of corn that is not either im.
proved or deteriorated by thejnanner in Which the
seed is selected.. As soon as the earliest ears are
thoroughly glnzed, I go over the field Selecting those
for seed that are early and vigorous, and from stalks
producing two good ears. The corn is immediate
ly braided uly.e.rui hung in a dry airy place. I have
a Lind of very long-eared, eight-rowed corn, which
have planted for several yeansAelecting the seed
in the field ;each year in the way described, and
which will yield a quarter more, the quality and
cultivation of the land being the same, than it would
when I begirt raising it—the corn is also at least
ten days earlier in ripening. At first it was difficult
to find doubled eared stalks, but now, it would
seem,to alt Observer in passing over the field, that
a large,proportion of the stalks produce twin ears me
asuring., the two together, 21 or 26 inches in length;
man'' of the single ears will meinsure 14 or 15 in

to any extent, two ears upon a Stalk, of this. length
unless the land and cultivation are both grm!. It is
