Yankee corn on Georgia Lands. --Our readers will recollect that much complaint was made some weeks ago by planters who had used grain brought from the North and West in putting in their crops. Its early tasseling seemed to destroy all hope of a yield.--We thought the complaint premature, as we had often used with success the same variety on a small scale for table use. A correspondent residing in Talbot county writes us as follows, under date of the 24th inst.: "When I wrote you last, I told you a great deal of Northern corn had been planted in this county and those adjoining, and the general opinion was that it would not do for this country. Since that time, some are much in favor of it and express no regrets at having seeded with it. One of my neighbors has fifteen acres of bottom land planted, and thinks the yield will be very heavy. "Wheat has turned out splendidly, and oats doing the same. Corn looks well, but would do better with rain."--Sav. Rep.
