This is a new sort, and is every way superior to any other we have seen, for after being pulled from the ground the stalks may be placed in a dry cool place, free from moisture, frost, or violent currents of air, (to prevent drying) and the grains will remain full and milky for many months. Or, the ears may be pulled in August, and by tying a string loosely around the small end, to prevent a may be laid on shelves and kept moist and suitable for boiling, for a year or more. This corn is a hybrid, between the Menomonv soft corn and the northern Sugar corn, and was first grown by Mr. Nathan Stowell of Burlington, New Jersey. We purchased from Mr. S. a number of ears dried for seed, and he presented us with a few ears surrounded by the husks, grown the previous summer, the inner leaves of the husks of which, and the corn and cob, were in as green a state as when pulled the previous August. Near the close of the late fair of the American Institute, I presented the managers with two ears pulled in August, 1849, and twelve ears pulled in August, 1850. They were boiled and served up together, and appeared to be alike, and equal to corn fresh from the garden.

"The ears are larger than the usual sweet corn, and contain twelve rows. To save the seed, it is necessary to place them in strong currents of air, freed from most of the husks, and assisted slightly by fire-heat when nearly dry. In damp places this corn soon moulds and becomes worthless. The seed, when dry, is but little thicker than writing paper, but is a sure grower. The stalks arc very sweet and valuable as fodder. The seed may be procured from Mr. Stowell, or from ourself."
