JOLLY TAR is a beautiful Chestnut Horse, with little, white, 15 hands 3 inches high ; his temper is excellent, and his performances have been first-rate. He was the best four-year-old in Ireland, which a reference to the Curragh June Meeting, 1842, will fully prove. In 1840, when two years old, he ran third for the Anglessy’s. in 1841, at three years old, he was a winner at Ol??astletwn, Banagher, at the Curragh, in the June Meeting, of the Corinthian Stakes; at Howth Park, of the Vaughan Goblets. In the September Meeting he beat Great Wonder, and several other Horses, at weight for age. In the same year he won the Limerick Stakes, and weight for age race there; also the Handicap Stakes at Kilkenny. In 1842, when in preparation for the Chester Cup, he became unwell, and was not placed for that race. He returned to Ireland in May, and on the short preparation of not five weeks, he won, in the June Meeting, the Kirwan Stakes of 50 sovs. [?cacli?], in a canter, beating Forcater? (a winner at Newmarket), St. Lawrence (who immediately afterwards sold for 1,500 guineas), Poacher and Saugareo(?)

JOLLY TAR also walked over for the Challenge of the Kirwans, and on the following day won her Majesty’s Plate of 100 guineas, beating easily Morpeth, Forester(?), and many others.

Good Grass; at 10d. per night, Hay and Oats, if required, at market price.

The owner will not be accountable for any accident that may happen to mares with this horse.

DUBLIN, MARCH 27. – The Chamber of Commerce at their annual meeting, yesterday, Mr. Croathwaltz[?] in the chair, denounced the market-tall[?] of the corporation as an atrocious proceeding. Arthur. Guinness, Esq., was elected president of the chamber.

The Rev. Dr. SPRATT, who is in Dublin a second Father Mathew on the Temperance mission, has received from the Pope the title and privilege of Provincial of the Carnalite order.

Miss Isabella SHERLOCK, niece to Judge BALL, and Mrs. BALL, of Rathfarnham, celebrated for the number of nunneries established by her, died in a convent at Rome on the 3rd instant.

REPRESENTATION OF MEATH. – The Meath Club, headed by two Roman Catholic clergymen, Messrs. [Fagurie?] O’REILLY and N. M’EVOY, have resolved that they will return Repealers, and nothing by Repealers, at the next election.

The following graphic description of the President Polk’s levee from the New York Herald: –

“At the appointed hour, the company began to arrive, and in a short time the rooms were filled up with a motley group,” from the refined and chastely attired consort of the foreign ambassador, down to the more attractive, and frippered tailoress, whose head-dress (a scarlet merlino turban, decorated with glass beads and bugles,) shown conspicuously amid the ‘glittering throng.’ The tout ensemble, to a foreign courtier covenant(?) with the machinery of the entire movement, must appear somewhat strange, from the general style of dress and the etiquette that prevails.”

Among those present we observed “four rough-looking back-woodsmen – Jolly farmers, dressed in grey friese, some with top coats, and others with smock-frocks;” and the ladies do not exhibit, as a whole, much more propriety in their attire. “Some wore plain shawls, plain muslin gowns, coarse boots and shoes, and appeared in (undress?). Others were rather passé, in visiting dresses, while the remaining part of the company went to the opposite extreme.” The “beautiful Miss M., of Ohio,” is represented and dressed in “light blue satin dress, short sleeves, hair beautifully braided and bound up in a large fillet resembling a (scarf? quart? cruwit?), style very becoming,” whilst Mrs. L – as described to have worn “coarse stuff gown, red, street (_?…) boots, muslin cap.” We have Mr. Dixon, M.C., black body coat, white vest, hat in hand, while sporting a lady in “pfpermasle[?] — a perfect American dandy – whilst Mr. W. is content to figure in “brown shooting jacket, pegged boots, with strong walking-cane,” and to complete the character, doubtless, a quid. This band to which this strange apportment of additions were doomed to listen, the Chronicle informs us, “would not do common justice to a menagerie.”


THE USE OF ‘INDIAN CORN’ AS FOOD.

SUPPAWN OR PORRIDGE, that is to say, boiling milk, broth, or water, thickened with Indian corn meal. Put into water, this is a breakfast, supper, or dinner for little children; put into milk or broth, it is the same for grown people. It is excellent in all disorders arising from bad digestion. In milk or broth it is a good strong meal, sufficient for a man to work upon. It takes about three pounds and a half of Indian corn flour to make porridge for ten person, less than half a pound of corn flour for a meal for one man, and a warm comfortable meal that fills and strengthens the stomach. Three pounds and a half of wheaten flour would make four pounds and a half of bread, and bread alone; not affording half the sustenance or comfort of the porridge.

MUSH. — Put some water or milk into a pot and bring it to boil, then let the corn meal out of one hand gently into the milk or water, and keep stirring with the other, until you have got it into a pretty stiff state; after whole(?), let it stand then minutes, and then take it out and put it in a dish or bowl. This sort of half pudding half porridge you eat either hot or cold, with a little salt or without it. It is eaten without any liquid matter, but the general way is to have a basin of milk, and taking a lump of the mush you put it into the milk, and eat the two together. Here is an excellent pudding, whether eaten with milk or without it; and where there is no milk, it is an excellent substitute for bread, whether you take it hot or cold. It is neither hard or lumpy, when cold, but quite light and digestible for the most feeble stomachs. The Indian corn flour is more wholesome than wheat flour in all its manners of cooking. It is a great convenience for the workman in the field that mush can be eaten cold. It is, in fact, moist bread, and habit soon makes it pleasanter than bread. It is a great thing for all classes of persons, but particularly for the labourer. He may have bread every day, and he may have it hot or cold, and there is more nutrition in it than you can get out of the same quantity of wheat flour. It is eaten at the best tables in America almost every day; some like it hot, some cold, some with milk, some to slice it down and eat it with meat; some like it best, made with water, others with milk. Some put these cold slices again into the oven and eat them hot, or they might be heated on the griddle. It is believed in America that the Indian corn, even used in this one [_?...] manner, does more as food for man than all the wheat that is grown in the country, though the flour from that wheat is acknowledged to be the best in the world.

HOMINY is made of the broken grain, broken by steel hand mills, or by a hammer or stone. It is soaked over night in warm water, changed in the morning to clean cold water, and boiled gently an hour and a half. Warm it over when cold, eat it with milk, or molasses, or salt, or bacon, or alone. The weekly allowance to a working man is ten pounds of flint corn, or twelve pounds of golden corn. Judge what a nutritious food this must be, for twelve pounds of it to be sufficient to maintain a working man seven days. In the midst of a wilderness, with a flint and steel, and a bag of corn meal, an American sets hunger at defiance. He makes a large wood fire on the ground, and while that is burning he takes a little wooden or tin bowl, in which he mixes up a sufficient quantity of his meal with water, and forms it into a cake about an inch thick. With a poln(sic) he then draws the fire open, and he lays the cake down where the centre of the fire was. To avoid burning, he rakes some ashes over the cake first, he then rakes on the embers, and his cake is cooked in a short space of time.

The usual mode of making bread or cake of Indian meal, is to scald the meal in boiling water, and make it of a proper consistency of dough, and bake it on tins before the fire, or on griddles, half an inch thick. It is also made into gruel, or thicker into hasty pudding, by stirring the meal into hot water gradually until it is of a consistency of starch, or a very soft pudding, which hardens as it becomes cold. It is eaten with butter, fat, salt, or sugar, or treacle, or any relish of salt meat or fish. No mistake can be made in using the meal as it can be mixed with, or adapted to anything.

TO MAKE EXCELLENT BREAD WITHOUT YEAST. – Scald about two handfuls of Indian meal into which put a little salt, and as much cold water as will make it rather warmer than new milk; then stir in wheat flour, or oatmeal, till it is a thick as a family pudding, and set it down by the fire to rise. In about half an hour it generally grows thin; you may sprinkle a little fresh flour on the top, and mind to turn the pot round, that it may not take to the side of it. In three or four hours, if you mind the above directions it will rise and ferment as if you had set it with hop yeast; when it does, make it up in soft dough, flour a pan, put in your bread, set it before the fire, covered up, turn it round to make it equally warm, and in half an hour it will be light enough to bake.

HASTY PUDDING. – Boil water, a quart, three pints or two quarts, according to the size of your family, sift your meal, stir five or six spoonfuls of it thoroughly into a bowl of water; when the water in the kettle boils, pour into it the contents of the bow; stir it will and let it boil up quickly; put in salt to suit your own taste, then stand over the kettle, and sprinkle in meal, handful after handful, stirring it very thoroughly all the time, and letting it boil between whiles. When it is so thick that you stir it with difficulty, it is right. It takes about half an hour’s cooking. Eat it with milk or treacle, or alone.

Be careful to observe that Indian corn in all its preparations requires to be well boiled or baked.

The Mexicans mode of using the Indian corn differs from all the foregoing. The whole corn is soaked in water until it becomes soft. A small quantity is then placed on a flat stone, on which it is crushed into an uniform smooth paste by a roller. Successive portions are added, and the paste, as it accumulates, removed into a dish, until a sufficient quantity is thus prepared ; after which process it is made into cakes of the thickness or pancakes. These are baked quick on a hot hearth, or on an iron plate, or on a griddle, and usually eaten hot, but are also kept till cold, and then rebaked in the same manner, when they become as crisp as this biscuits. No other kind of bread is used in the country districts, or b y the majority of the inhabitants of even the large towns; and many of the wealthier classes prefer it to the best wheaten bread.


STROKESTOWN. – On Friday evening last, four armed men came into a field within pistol-shot of Strokestown Church, where four brothers of the name of DALY, were ploughing. One of them coming up to one of the Dalys, bid him go on his knees, and on the latter refusing, the Molly snapped his pistol, which did not go off; he scarcely had time to do this, until another of the Dalys knocked him down with the plough-chain. The four Daly’s then attacked the Mollys, and next them most desperately, and disarmed them of two pistols, which they brought and gave up to the police.

COLOGNE, MARCH 21. Prince Adam Czartoryaktl(?), the eldest son of the Prince who resides at Paris has arrived here on his way to Berlin, where he will endeavor to alleviate the fate of his unfortunate countrymen.
