Economy in corn. To the Editor of the Richmond Dispatch: As we are all interested in any plan by which our present supply of corn may be made to yield the greatest amount of nutriment, I beg leave to submit the following suggestion for the consideration of your Quartermasters. Let all the corn led to the , cavalry, and artillery horses in your vicinity be ground into course hominy, and let the millers take toil in kind. That would produce, probably, three to four hundred bushels per day, which would be for sale to your citizens, and so much clear gain, for the broken corn, after deducting the toil, would be more serviceable to horses and mules than all the corn would have been before grinding. This experiment has been tried here, with advantage both to our citizens and to our teams. J. M. R. Wilmington, N. C., June 20, 1864.
