Econo'Jij is the TroriI now, or'at
least it should be in every family. r
Some are compelled to economize ;
others do -so from' motives of. benevo
lence, that they may bo better alia tp
assist their less fortunate friends and
neighbors; whils others will "practice
economV' from patriotic motives.
I There are oyer twenty million inhabi
tants n tho. Aorthernand tlie Jliqdo
States. If by economy in feod, lax
uries, clothing, furniture, carriages,
and in sundry other items,' the aver
age reduction of current expepses for
one year be only seven cents a day,
each, the savings, will amount to over
FIVE HUNDRED MILLION; DOL
LARS ! This would balance the $4,
000,000 expended by the Government,
and leave one hundred millions 33 an
offset to the extra'expenses and con
tributions of those not connected with
or employed by the government, so
that the : nation would haye qutto as
much wealth. after a year's war, as if
peace had prevailed, and the people
had gone on in their previous modes
of living. The half million : soldiers
will of course save money during the
year,' for eyen the humblest private
get s all his foo4 and clothing, besides
155 in money, which all come out of
the four hundred million dollars ex
pended by the government, "while the
balance is nearly all paid to manufac
turers, laborers and cultivators here at
fcome. ? ; f
We believe the people can and will
reduce, their, expenses seven cents
ea.ch day, on tho average, r . With some
the saving will amount to but one or
two cents daily, : "while others will far
excede the seyen cents. .There are
manyvrays in which people can ex
pend less money- than th.ey would
have done under other circumstances.
In the single item of clothing -'much
will be saved. Some will buy a coat
or & dress less. Borne will, wear a $4
bonnet instead of an $8 one. Some will
wear a good pair of b6ots instead of
a fancy pair that would cost more and
give out. sooner and this; will be a
manifest saving of health and com
fort. The old harness: will do to
drive to church o'r to town for anoth
er year.1 But we can ot particular
ize further. , One 'of the, few good ef
fects of this war willcling tp us af
terward. I , - . , .
The main object of the present chap
ter is to assist, if we-can, in economy
of food. Did it ever occur to the
reader,: how : little, .comparativl, we,

crop i3 grown - core generally, and
with more certainty ;.: than any other,
and its actual production far exceeds
that of all other grains: taken togeth
er. And yet a'few pounds of toes.!
per month, for desert puddings, and
other dishes, is about the extent of the
consumption of corn in the great ma
jority of the families in the Northern
States: Some families use mucn more,
but these are exceptions to fhe gen
eral rule. And yet a busliel of ground
nm afford nk rauail nourishment CIS
a bushel of Wheat. A bushel wheat
weighs GU punas and a Dusnei oi.coru
59. But there is more waste in grind
ing the wheat, in the form of bran
and ship stuff. - Corn differs from
wheat mainly, in having a little less
gluten, and rather more oil and starch.
For the colder half of the year the
oil and starch of the corn are better
als-pted to the wants of the t-'dy,
than the large amount of gluten in
wheat. Corn contains all the elements
needed in the body, and in just about
the proportion they are. required in
Winter, while they are nearly suited
for fooij in warm 'weather. A bushel
of corn contains four times as much
nutriment as a bushel of potatoes.
. WTc have just examined the market
prices of Wheat, Oorn, and Potatoes,
in different parts of the country. The
examination show's, first, , that taking
the country together, the price of a;
bushel of corn and a bushej of potatoes
is about the same, (they- vary consid
erably in" some localities, but .not
generally ;) and secoud, that a bushel
of wheat sells for 2 times as much as
a bushel .cf corn. : Ve therefore find
that' V the average, an amount of
ncurhment costing 1 in tbe form of
corn, costs $2 in tho form of wheat,
and' Si in the form of potatoes.
(Four-fifths of the weight of potatoes
are water.) So, then, of three families
requiring the same amount of nour
ishing food, what would cost one 0
a year in the I form of corn, would cost
the second $100 in the form of wheat,
and the third 1C0 in the form of
potatoes. . ;
. Why, "then, do not people consume
more corn? Answer. Fashion :er
custom has much influence, and ignq
rance of the value of corn, or pf good
modes of'cooking it,, does the rest. .
To do away with the last named diffi
culty, we propos? to give here a variety
of -methods for. preparing corn, an
corn meal, so as to make them pala
table, , Of the healthfulness thero h
no doi;bt, and from the methods given
Ltlov, every housawife'ean find one or
more that will suit the wants and taste
c.f those 'for" whom she provides. -
The following directions " have all
been furnished expressly for the J-wer
ican Agriculturist: - ' 1 -: '
' Iach of the several editors' families
have been called upon for contribu
tions, and ve have each asked our
friends for their best recipieg. Wife's
Avritten cook book has been ransacked,
and we have consulted the mothers
and aunts of the neighborhood, noted
for their good cooking. ' Here is the
result. (Their derivation from so
many sources, accounts for several
having the same heading.)
" lf , Hasty Pudding, or "Mush."
We place this first as the most com
mon and most easily made. No one
ever "took sick" from eating mush and
milk, or fried mush ;in any suitable
quantity. (We knew a student well,
who left the active labors of the farm
topqr3ue his studies in on Academy.
The' first term he used a variety of
food, and was inpoor health. The
next'term of 11 weeks he ate o?j?y mush
and milk, for breakfast, dinner, and
supper,, and actual,y grew fat on it,
Avhile he; lost all headache, and though
pursuing five heaA'y studies, he was
first in his. class, and went through the
term strong and vigorous, without an
hour of .lost time, though he worked
enough in the field and garden, at 8
cents an hour to pay all his expense?.)
"Mush and milk" i3 seldom relished,
because few people know how to make
the mush. -The Avhole secret is in
cooking it thoroughly. . Rightly made
it ;is not "hasty , pudding." A well
made ."mush" i3; one that has boiled
not less than a full hour. Two hours
are better. The meal needs ' to: be
cooked j then it is both good and pal
atable; The rule is c Mix. it very thin
and boil it down, avoiding any burning
or scorching, and salt it just right to
suit the general taste. Prepare a good
kettle full for supper, to be eaten Avith
milk, sugar, molasses, syrup, or sweet
ened cream, or sweetened milk. If a
good supply be left to .cool, asd be cut
in slices and fried well in the mornirg
ing, the pjate of i leaten bread will be
little in demand. It must be fried
well, pot crisped, or burned, or soaked
in fat. If thoroughly soaked through
in the kettle, it will only need to be
heated through on the griddle. If not
cooked well in the kettle, longer fry ing
will be necessary.
f2. Dry Mush andMilk. Parch corn
quite brown, grind it in a clean colFee
mill or pound it in a mortar, and let it
spak i in waTm milk until softened ;
then if too thick add more milk and eat
when cold. Or meal may be browned
and eaten in the same manner. '
3. Siimp. This is a good method
of using corn, and a popular one when
well tried made , not of the white
hominy of various grades of coarseness
and aold in small bags in various
stages of freshness; but yellow corn
fresh plucked from the fields, or well
preserved, and but " recently ' crushed
(not ground) at the village millf Boiled
well, as directed, above for pudding, no
dish is more popular "than this Avith
children, and many grown people, par
ticularly in Autumn and Wiuter. It
can be used with syrup, or good milk,
or sugar, or both. ' Like hasty pud
ding, it is good for the second day.
The various grades of "hominy" are
very good articles of food but not so
good as samp.
4. Boiled Indian Corn (ripe.) Take
common yellow corn, and boil it in a
weak lye, until the hub are broken and
easily slip off. Then pour off the lye
and wrinse the corn thoroughly. Boil
it until soft, in clear Avater, adding a
little salt. Eat with cream and sugar
or butter and syrup, or simply with
batter a3 a vegetable. ,
"5. An Excellent Corn Cake. Take
1 pint of corn meal, one quart of sour
milk, 4 eggs well beajten, 2 tablespoon
fulls of sugar, and soda enough, to
sweeten the milk. Mix well together,
and bake in pans. To haieany corn
cake Avith egs light, the eggs' must be
well beaten." For this recipe the sum
of 3 was originally paid to a baker
G. Corn Bread (a.) Take 1 quart
of sour milkj 1 tablespoonful of salera
tus, 1 tcaspoonfuli of salt, 1J cups of
molasses, 3 cups of Indian meal, and
Scups of flour. Mix well, and bake 3
hours in a slow oven; or, as some
prefer, steam it three hours and then
bake it I of an hour.
7. Johnny Caket or Ccjn Breath
The following (not before published,)
we fatherly copied from the 'MS. of a
good hcuspwifqi in Georgia: Beat two
eS3 Y?rJ I'Sh' nU with them, alter
nately, one pint of sour milk or butter
milk', and one pint of meal. Add one
tablespoonful of melted butter. Dis
solve one tablespoonful of soda in a
little of the milk and add to the
mixture. Last hut not leat, beat
hard together and bake quick.
8. Plain Jonny Cake. Take 1 quart
Indian meal, 1 quart buttermilk, one
teaspoonful salt, 1 teaspoonful s.alara
tus, 2 teaspoonfuls butter or other
shortening, 1 tablespoonful sugar, one
or two beaten eggs if you have them.
Mix and bake in shalloAy tin pans one
9. Florida Johnny Cake. The fol
lowing simplfi recipe wc picked up in
Florida, and know by experience that
it makes good bread : Take one tum
bler of milk, one of Indian meal, beat
up qne egg, rate in the whole togothcr
and bake well. .
10. Sour Milk Corn Cako (a.)
Take one quart of sour milk, a large
teaspoonful ofpearlash, a tea3poonful
of salt. Stir the milk and meal to
gether to make a stiff batter, over
night. In the morning dissolve the
peavlash in warm Avater. Stir up
quickly, bake in shallow pans.
11. Sour Milk Cork Oae (b.)
Take one pint of SQu,r milk, and one
of cream, two eggs, a teaspoonful of
salt, a teaspoonful of saleratus, and
Indian meal enough tp ma:e t good
batter. Bake qne hour in shallow
pans well buttered.
12. Virginia Corn Dodgers. Take
three pints of unsifted yellow corn
meal, one tablespoonful of lard, and 1
pint of milk. Work all well together,
and bake in .cakes ths sizo of the
hand, and an inch thick. WTe have
often eaten this in Dixie's land, and
know it to bo palatable to a hungry
man highly so. '
13. Corn Bread (c.) Threo pints
of meal, and one of rye or Graham
flour, two tablespoonfulls of sugar and
one teaspoonful of salt. One yeast
cake softened in warm water. This
should be mixed with yarin water to a
dough just compact enough not to run,
and then be put in a deep pan, and
left by the fire until jt rises about one
fourth higher than 'hen mixed.
Bake in a moderate oven five Ijours.
Tnis makes a thick crust upon the top
which is to be lifted pff, and the re
mainder eaten warm. Slice and heat
in a steamer for breakfast. The ,crust3
are to be softened jn warm water, and
crumbled fine for the wptting of the
next loaf, and the. cook will be sur
prised to find the secontj experiment
far superior to the first.
li. , Ilye and Indian Loave3. (First
rat.e tho real Yankee loaf.) Scald
two quarts of Indian meal, and when I
cold add one quart unbolted rye flour,!
three-quarters of a pint molasses, one
tablespoon salt, and water enough to1
make a stiff sponge or batter. Pour
into deep ir$n pots or kettles, and
bake in a slow oven for three our four
hours. If in a brick oven, leave it
