Tlic Itlomentoit* <inetlloni of the TIiihh_ Uur I'ikkI i'ruipecU. [Krom the London Kconomist. June 26 ] In whatever light we look at the great interests of this country at the present moment?whether to its social welfare and progress?its political quiet, or its financial. I commercial and industrial prosperity?the great and overwhelming subject which absorbs all other considerations, is that connected with a sufficient supply of food. Our remarks last week upon the new distribution of the cultivation of the soil, and the abandonment, to a great extent, of the growth of the potato, consequent upon the disease in that plant, must have convinced our readers, thavin considering the important question in reference to the future, we have at least one great element of certainty, not dependent upon the state of the weather, or upon the result of the growing <*ops. We have shown that iu place of 3,400.0U(i acres of potatoes (the estimated usual grow Lb of the country) there are not more than I Otio titjti acres cropped with that plant, the produce of which, under the mnsL favorable circumstance*, cannot be estimated at more than 0 000,000 tons, while the lowest estimate of the sound potatoes saved from the defective crop of last year was ii,000,000 tons; thus showing a deficiency, under the most favorable circumstances, Of :i,000,000 tons But agaiust this deficiency we have ' i , O .11 -i.r. ... trw.I.akitan- 4?I ? been left uncultivated, planted with other cropH. We have shown, however, that a very email proportion of that laud can bu cropped with gruln; hut that the great bulk muHt be occupied with green crojiB not available, or. at least, to a very small extent, lor human food ; and that, moreover, if even 1.0U0,0()0 of acres of wheat, or l.UOO.OOO acres of oata have been grown in addition to the quantity produced last year, they would only be an e<|uivaleut of the difference between a sound crop of potatoes thin year, and the defective crop of last year. Irrespective, therefore, of the result of the growing crops, the most favorable view that we can at present take, as regards the prospect* of our own independent supplies from our own soil, is that they are as good as last year. As the season goes on, these prospects will be aggravated in proportion as the potato crop may prove diseased?or ameliorated iu some degree, as the spriug grain crops, barley nud oats, may prove more abundant than lMt year, btill the great fact -which alfected our supply of food so much during the last year, aud which must again exert the most powerful inllueucu during the coming year the ubsonce of the potato?is a point tlxed and determined. We can easily imagine that, with the great bulk of our readers, a perusal of our remarks last week, on the abaudonmeut of. the cultivation of the potato, was accompanied with a mixture of apprehension and satisfaction?of apprehension at the immediate consequence of tb# withdrawal of so much subsistence?of satisfaction, that the change might lead the people, iu future, lo rely upon a higher and less precarious food. The effeets or the cultivatiou (>f the potato upon population, aud upnu the general condition of the working rluwt, iimr iiui, ii> i>ui ?rr* i uqivkiu, iiitii jrct nuuicie liny null utely, or liitrly considered; and wh cannot hesitate in cxpriwiinKkD opinion tliut much of the objection which iiHH been urged against the potato, and especially in relation to It* effects iijiori Ireland, Iiiin arisen from Nome confusion between cause and effect The time, however, In come when this subject must hi thoroughly exuniiieil, as one of the social clement* of Ireland, whose condition bids lair to occupy even more of our attention during (lie next year, than duriug the pant. Not that we would insinuate that the internal misfortune* ot Ireland will be ho much greater, but that the easy mode which the legislature bait adopted of meeting the difficulty duriug the past year, will not be p jssioie duriug I he next. Willie, ou the one hand, it caunot be denied that the cultivation of the potato lias reudered potviiblu the existence of degradation in Ireland to au rxteut which could not Imve prevailed had bare juluistrnce been more dittt cult to procure, yet it will require much more powerful reasons to show thai it would be a national good to di*courajc uyecies ol cultivation, which, so greatly iieyonii all others. yield* from the same surface, the name labor, and the expenditure of the name capital, so much larger a portion of good and uutritiouH tood The argutnriit a^kinxt the cultivation oi the udurued. would lead un to doiiul the beuxlit of *-very improvement which secured greater abundance with less laoor - ol every machine wh ch lessened toil, created cheapness, and ginc lout command ol leisure which in the Inuuda tlou of civilisation. It wouid be u uiimt daiigeroun iloc trine to admit, that because tue Irisu have abused ho valuable a rource of the economy f capital, labor, and noil, that therefore, such obvious blessings were in themseves au evil, 'i'nereare great social aud political coumiderations bound up with thin ijucstlon us regards Ireanil which uii'Ht be discussed and iiudemtood, before we ajnye ul a solution oi the d lllcullle.s under which uulinppy country labors, and before we can hope to irno thai policy pursued run uioue redeem it iroiu its present degradation anil sutleriug. Itut, before v>Ho into these dtscusidmiH more at large before we come to a conclusion km to the value of the cultivation of the potato, ami an to tin- iuariliitu effects which must Inexperienced Irom Its partial abandonment let use*, amine, with more care than has hitherto been done, what has been the result of the I tilure of the ornp last year' 1 here are matters of fart connected with the state of Ireland, and with the future prospects of the whole country, in these consideration*, deserving of serious attention, aud which it will ho well Unit till should understand, who, whether an ministers or merchant* have now to decide their future course Proceeding upoti the reasoning to which we have referred, it in not iiniiHUa! to hear (lie opinion that the potato failure has done g<x>d to Ireland, inasmuch its it has already given them a habit of using a higher species of food, on which they will depend in future, but thorn! who thiiH reason do not sulllcicntly I tear in miirl the difference between the existence of it want and the power of gratifying it. Ireland, it ij true, ban been supplied with a Higher ami better diet during the past year than usual, but it bus neither been furnished iroiu her own soil, nor by her own industry. Kvcry granury in Kurrpo, and every t.iriu in the Western Htates ol America, have been swept of all surplus stock, to contribute to the possibility of that act, and more than ten millions or public money have flowed from the exchequer of the United Kingdom to render it possible, \V hen improved i\nd morn expensive habits follow as the natural consequence of greater industry aud increased wealth, they may be takeu as a test of an advancing state of society, but itii a strange reversal of all reasoning and observation to draw a similar inference from a temporary and accidental indulgence of a higher taste Ki" means of which are contributed by au act of public charity, too stupendous to lie repeated.
