[From the New Orleans Picayune, Sept. 4.) Tho desire tti learn the result of the negotiations en- , tered Into between Mr. Trist and the Mexican government in more intense even than to obtain tho detail* of the engagements whioh have been fought in th? vicinity of Mexico The cpiuion i? that the result wlllb? speedily received here All the efforts of the friends of peace iu Mexico, of the British embassy and of Mr. Trist, would lie exerted iustantly and energetically. Any delay Jin consummating negotiations would bo fatal, if (ougress is driven into sanctioning peace measures, it must bo by the terror of our arms. When " the tremor Is off," it will relax into its wonted stubborn policy. We confess* thut we by no means fet l so conSdent of peace aft didth* writer of the letter from Orizaba to Mr. Dlmond,published yesterday. It is hardly worth while to speculate upon the subject; for in a very few days we may expect advices from the city of Mexfoo which will settle tho matter We have not long to remain iu suspense as tho Knglish courier would leavo on the 29th Uit., and should the basis of a treaty be agreed upon at an earlier day, an extraordinary courier would doubtless be despatched to Vera Cruz. Uut if we have not much confidence that the Mexio%n Cougrrss will ussent to such terms as .Mr. Trlst may be authorized to grant, we havu yet lwps that such a peace as xi ay be patahed up will be a stable one. Should the pri'8* at government of Mexico accept our proposal!, the vi'ry act will be likely to prove its ruin. Wo shall then havu to test the vigor of the coalition between tlvo great States of Mexico, pledged to the couf luuation of the war. We next shall have the influence of Parados ready to be exerted to protract the controversy. Should Santa Anna sign a trcity, unrelenting war would become the watchword of I'aredes and his partisans. It would be the most obvious course for him to pursue to attain the ultimate aims of his ambition, whether his design be to establish a monarchy iu Mexico, or consummate any other scheme of personal aggrandizement. There must bo a large class of men in Alexioo ready to (look around the standard of any 1 old, adventurous spirit which shall declare for war. Besides the army proper, the guerilla system must have infected thousands of vagabonds with an appetite for blood and plunder. Mexioo has ever abounded in these graceless scamps, and the preseut war must have increased the number ten fold. Upon the whole, this class of Mexicans have driven a profitable trade during the war. They have never been adequately chastised, and the mode of life uiu't have strong attractions for men unscrupulous uud of desperate fortunes. We do not mention a tithe of the elements which are at work in Mexioo to prevent a permanent peace, but it obvious that there must be no relaxation of effort on our part. Our military energies must be yet further evoked, if not to '-conquer a peace," at least to enforce the fulfilment of such a treaty as Mr. Trist may by possibility effect. We hnpu there may be as Utile delay as possible in calling out the additional regiments which it has been Intimated the government will send into the field. Mexico should be made to see aud comprehend that w* have but beguu to deal with her as wu can, if the insists upon hostilities. All classes of them shuuldsee the futility of war, and not be allowed to misunderstand the high and houoraflle motives which have moved us so ofteu to offer peace. None of her people should be showed to suppose that we have made our proposals save in a spirit of magnanimity, prompted by a consciousness of our strength and their weakness. But wu fear it will turn out that though Mexico may be easily whipped, she will not readily ''stay whipped,'' and this not trom a noble pride which scorns submission, but from the vicious elements of her national charactur and organization.? The continu&ncu of the war will be ? watchword to arouse and unite her discontented spirits, and her profligate and worthless military. T1IE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. [From the New Orleaus Delta, Sept. 4.] It is now well understood that the Government has changed its plan of operations in Mexico. The contemplated ad vauce of Geu. Taylor upon San Luis aud the enpital has been abandoned. The troops now with Gen. T . will be reduced to a mere garrison force, sufficient to holit and occupy the principal points in our possession, aud the surplus, consisting of two brigades, will bu sent to Vera Cruz, via the llrazos, to open the communications between lien. Scott's army and his depot at Vera (,'ruz. This division is. no doubt, alreadv on the march. as wh learn from (Japt. Corser, of the Secretary Buchanan, lute Irom the Brazos, that it was hourly expected by the (|uarteruiaster at that point,who wan taking measures to furnish the necessary supplies and transportation. Whether this division will be under the command of Gen. Taylor or Wool, wuaru not iulonued, but we presume that it will have (iens.Lane and Hoppln as its Brigadiers, and that it will include the force now encamped at .\lier, and composing the school of instruction. The division will be about 3.000 strong, and will, no doubt, be amply sufficient to clear the rear of General Scott's column. Jalap* will be strongly occupied. Thii is highly desirable, for at present this plaoe is the nest of the guerillas. Here they obtain their means and supplies, and here they can retreat from the mountain* and find shelter and support, whenever they are hard pressed. The garrison at I'uebla, too, will be reinforced. Wo tru.'t whilst thu government is taking these judicious and energetio measures to protect the communications of our OOaqaOfag army on the Jalapa road, it will also see the importance ot occupying the Uri/.aba road, aud protecting lien. Scott's rear trom that direction A force of 1,000 men, with 500 horse, thrown iuto Oriiaba, would shut i?< the guerillas, and very much cranip the sphere of their operations, and cripple their resources. When these points are occupied, let the government raisi two or three additional regiments of Hangers, and a corps of light Klying Artillery, to operate on the line our posts, and twe guiranty the guerillas will soon disappear. To further this plan, Mr. Marcy has only to send a written request to Jack Hays and Ben McCulloch, authorising tuem to raise two regiments of rangers, and turuish them with the necessary equipments, acting towards them with some liberality, and we are certain the required force will soon be In the field?a force, the very wnisper of whose approach will clear the rooks and chaparral of the whole horde of guerilla vermin. This change in the mode ot operations, and the consequent diversion of a large portion of lien. Taylor's command, is to be regretted by all those who, like ourselves, warmly hoped to see the old hero, who has so nobly borne the brunt of this tear, completing and rounding oil tlie epic ot liis exploit* l>y a triumphal entry into the city uf Mexico, utter a victorious march througli tlie interior Status. But we <lo not dee how it could be avoided. The pruceut aspect of affairs indicates very clearly that the government will be under the necessity of oocupyiug uud holdiDg Mexico alter its conquest; that the government of Mexico hail neither the will nor the power tn make peace, aud that no ingenuity or concession on our purt, hliort of nali< usi dishonor, can Have us from the necessity of taking " corporal seizin'' of the country, as the lawyers xay. aud holding It until our Congms -hull determine what further Steps phail be taken. To do this requires a much larger force than (Jen Scott had when he left I'uebla. There should at least be one line of communication kept open between the capital and our ports of deposit aud rupply. What avail would it be lor both Generals Taylor aud Scott to advance at the mmo time on the capital, when the rear of both armies is left uncovered aud their communications closed ! They would, of couree, capture thu city, but all the country around them would be in the hands of the eueuiy. aud thoy would be shut out from their supplies and reiuforoeinents. The passage of the armies through the States leaves the people us lar from being subdued and as hostile as they were before. Thu mere conquest of the capital will net be the great difficulty of thia war. Our serious difficulties commence with its capture and occupation. A line of :UO miles, through a thickly settled, aad inveterately hostile country, admirably adapted for partisan aud guerilla warfare, will have to dii occupied by our troops?largo cities will have to be fortified and garrisoned, and valuable trains will have to b? continually guarded and escorted from the ooast to the capital. To perform all theso difficult duties will require at leant 3U,u 10 men. Hut the whole number now in the Qeld does not reach this figure. It appears, therefore, to us to be, not only the wisest and uiost judicious, but the only oourse left to our government, to concentrate all the troops not necessary for tlsc garrisoning of the towns and depots la our possession, upon the main point of our military operations, in order to secure and render more elective and ava"able the hard earned lruils of victory.

We even here are daily expecting a siuii- ci lar fandango, as our authorities do not seem to ea be very much on the alert. The Mexicans come tl In and buy powder, balls, and other munitions, and hi go out with impunity. A few days ago, on the 19th, is i apt.

But what caps the tl olimax is, that the Americans sold them to our ene- w mies! It is surprising that our government does not b send here men of severer temper, or more decided pa- a trlotio character and love of country, who would not s overlook any, the slightest dereliction of duty or oon- p duct, such as should become a citizen.

Cnltlvatlon of the L.and The Potato DIimm [From the London Economist | Notwithstanding the contradictory account# which ach u? from all nuartera, as to the prospects of the poto crop, there docs not exist the slightest doubt that e same disease which proved ho destructive last year ut again made its appearance in the present seajton. he diversity in the opinions expressed, arises, no doubt, many eases, from the different modes In which the lamination of the plant has been conducted; for, in all ises in which the disease ..as been discovered in Its irlier stages, the external and general appearand! of le plant has been as vigorous and green as the most ealthy plant. Already, in our own experience, several iBtauces have oooured in which parties resident in dif treat parts of the klugdom, who within the last ten ?ys, wrote that the crop was most promising, and alto* i'ther free of any symptom of the disease, have since lu>rmed us that It has made t ts appearance in precisely le same form as last year. Aud In some instance*,*hern le disease had only been discovered in its earlier stage, e are now informed, that "where the stalks were In Iosboiu, and appeared most healthy six days ago. they re now so black and rotten as to break off with the lightest touch.'' In another Instance, where a oorresondent in thu west of Kugland, au able and experienced grlculturist, having the management of extensive esates, only last week pronounced the crop, so far, as persutly sound and healthy, has already sent us specimens, f the most unmlstakeable kind, of the disease which lias ince broken out in the neighborhood. Our corresponleuce with Scotland, the north andBOuthof Ireland,and UfTurent parts of Kngland. especially the west ami northnest. leaves us no longer in the slightest doubt that the iiuie disease has already made its appearance in all those liatricts. In most cases, too, it hag now attacked the larly potatoe, which, last year, escaped compara,ively uninjured, and, in 1W4S, eutirely so. There ib, therefore, but one conclusion, we fear, that 3an be fairly arrived at -that the disease which iestroyed the crop last year has again appeared, with the same symptoms, and at a much earlier period; and that there is every reason to apprehend a similar destruction of the crop, in proportion to the extent to which it is plauted. We take it as uertain, too that thu disease'has not assumed a milder form, or that It is likely to be more partial, as has been suggested, from the fact of its making its appearance at an earlier period Looking to the experience of other countries, and of tbt ast two years in this country, the early appearance o: .he disease may be taken as an evidence of its increased rirtflenoe. When the disease becomes weaker, tfa* itrength of the plant is able longer to resist its influence. This was found to be the case In lielgium last rear, where it waB, in a great measure, eradicated, and vhere no trace of it was discovered till at least two nonths after our fields were blackened with the ' rot.'' \'or do we place much confidence in atmospheric intluinces. Whether the season is a little wetter or a little Iryer, we do not believe will make auy MNDptibll diference. In the reports of the Commissioners of I'atentB, ireseuted to the American Congress, in reference to his disease, which prevailed, virulently and extenively for three years, throughout the Union, they paricularly remark their inability to ascribe it to auy paricular state of the atmosphere: for while, in some parts if the country, where there had been more rain than isual.it had been ascribed to that cause, they found hat, in others, where thu season had been particularly try, the disease had been equally prevalent. The apjearancu of the disease at so early a period, and in some :ases, already in so decided a form, is the best evidence ,hat, as yet, it has lo>t none of its virulence. The time, therefore, appears to have arrived, when it lecomes necessary to consider whut will be the probable >fleets of a failure of the potato crop to a corresponding iXtsnt as last year. In the first place, however, we would allude to a very valuable precaution which is being extensively adopted in some partB of the north of Ireland, which may save farmers from much loss, where the failure of the crop turns out to be most eomiilete. It was found by experience, lust year, that aftwr the leaves md stalks of the plant withered, the root ceased to grow; but it was also found, that the potatoes left in the ground kept better than those which were dug. These fact, have suggested a simple precaution, which, we thinfe cannot be too extensively practised. It is?to drop, at this season, a few,turnip seeds between each potatc plant, so that, la the event of the disease appearing, ant the stems and leaves of the potato withering and deoay iug as they did last year, the roots may bu left' undui until the usual time, and a fair crop of turnips may b secured in the Interim, without exhausting the soil uior than if the potatoes had grown to their usual size. Tlf. practice, we are glad to hear, is already being adopte There are, however, mauy reasons which render i failure of the growing potato crop a matter of intinitel less consequence than Id the two last years; and, priuci pally, thu tact, that the quantity planted is much 1<-h thau in former seasons. The new distribution of th cultivation of the soil of the I'nited Kingdom, whicl has taken place in consequence of thu existence of th< potato disease, und the effects which that change mus necessarily have upon the home supply of human food under any circumstances, would he questions of the ut most importance at the present time, whether the potat< crop promised abundance or the contrary, but thii question, which in itself we consider of the greatest importance, looking to the food prospects of the country derives additional importance from the prospect of n failure of the small portion of potatoes wuich art planted. One of the most Important questions connected witl the potato disease, and Its ettects upon the distributer of the cultivation of the soil, but to which little atten tion has hitherto been given, Is the comparative numb ri that can b? supported upon a given surface plantoi with potatoes, and any other crop whatever that cai be substituted in its place. Socially, politically, am commercially, this question involves at the present mo ment the greatest and most important considerations.According to Arthur Young, the average produce of ai acre of potatoes in Ireland is Hi barrels, which, at i stones 10 the barrel. lb., or little more than tei tons. \lr. M'Culloch, in his recent excellent work,41 j Descriptive and Statistical Account of the British Kin pire," states that the produce varies from eight to twelv tons to the acre. Dr. Kane, In his admirable book 01 thu " Industrial Resources of Ireland," states the lowes estimate to be nine tons to the acre ; and several privat accounts which we have collected from Ireland, agre that a fair and somewhat low estimate would be HO oar rels, or exactly ten tons to the acre. The estimates as to the comparative number of per ions that can be sustained upon an acre of potatoes au< in acre of wheat vary considerably, according to differ snt authorities ; some estimating an acre of potatoes ai being equal to six acres of wheut. and others placing II is low as one of the former to two of the latter. Kroui i careful investigation of the subject, we believe the trutfe lies between these extreme estimates, and that one acr? >f average potatoes is capable of feeding, at the lowest istlmate. as many persons as three acres of wheat. Arthur Toung estimates that 1 lb. of wheat is equal, in nutritive quality, to 6 lbs. of potatoes. .Mr. Newenliain. to whose investigation great weight is attached ttates that U lbs. of good potatoes contain as much nutritive matter as I lb. of wheat; and Mr. Mc< ulloch adopts the medium of these calculations, in which w? believe he is as near the truth as possible, for we find that the result of a succession ot experiments, conductad in the I'nited States, by Messrs. Uerry and llerrinff with the greatest care and precision, and ollicially com municated to Congress iu the valuable report of tht Commissioner of 1'atents, establishes the fact that th< proportion of nourish!) ent between potatoes and wheal is three pounds of the former to twelve ouuees of tin latter, or as four poundA to one pound. If, then, wi take the average produce of whs it even as high as threi quarters and a half to the acre, and that of potatoes a only nine tons to the acre, we shall have the followini comparison 1 acre of potatoes produces 0 tona, or.. . .20,160 lbi. 1 acre of wheat produces 3X qrs., at (10 lbs. to the bushel, will give 1,680 lbt. But as 1 lb. of wheat is equivalent for nourishment ti 4 lbs. of potatoes, the 20.100 lbs. of potatoes produce* on one acre will be equivalent only to A,040 lbs. o wheat; therefore, as one acre of wheat produces 1,68 II is of food, and an acre of potatoes 6,040 lln of food of the same intrinsic nourishment, it follows tha one acre of land planted with potatoos. will support a many liersons as three acres planted with wheat. We have not the same exact data for calculating tb relative nourishment which an acre of oats bears to on it *,t uiliniMIni/ Mvnn lli a(. nHt.s nrnilnei. V. quarters, or HI bushel*, to the acre. and that they w<-iu 40 lb* to the bushel. each acre woulii give 2,Mill I hi Uu 11 lbs of oats yield or ly about H lb* of meal, of which lb I* considered In Irelaud a* being equal to about 3 II of potato)**, which we consider an extreme estimate; bu let us take It. Then, One acre of oats, 04 buabela to the acre, and 40 lb* t the bnshel, will give 3,.WO lbs of oats, or, in tbe propor tlon ot!) Iba of meal to 14 lbs of oats. 1,043 lbs of meal Then, One pound of oatmeal li equivalent In nourishing qual Ities to 3 lbs of potatoes; consequently 1,U4.? lbs of oat meal, the produce of an acre, are equal to 4,W.'J ? lbs of po tatoes Duta* an acre produces '20 I? ?? lbs of potatoes, II follows, that one acre of land, cultivated with potatoes, will support as many persons as four acres cultivated with oats. Those calculations would, therefore, establish the fact, that, In order to support a population on grain, who have hitherto lived upon potatoes, or to whatever extent the latter crop I* abandoned, the surface of cultivation should be Increased in the proportion of at least three acres of grain for every acre of potatoes so given up. 'J he superior power of the potatoes to sustain life has. we believe. been very much overlooked in considering the questions connect?d,with the physical economy of the country during the last forty years In the early part of tin present century, the potato was cr'tivated by farmers a* nn article of merchandise, to very limited extent and even in 1819, when th? Corn I,aws were passed, thi cultivation bore a very small proportion to that of lati years It has often been used as an argument in favoi of the protective system, that notwithstanding the rapid increase ol the population from IHIft, yet that In eacl) *u('needing ten years, the average price of grain wai lower than it had been In the preceding ten years Krom this it was Inferred by the advocate* of the corn laws, that the extension of oultlvatlon. and the Increased productiveness ?f the soil were greater than even the progress of population. This broad assertion, though ipparently borne out by the IWct of the average lower price of grtln. was, however, at direct variance with the state of the fact* when Inquired Into minutely ? Neither the Increased breadth of land cultivated, noi he inoreaied produce pe- sere, supported the argiluent. And now it I* evident, wh i we come to lnv< *tl[ate the relative j awer of a given sui see to sup. port a population, w len cultivated with potato* a. compared with grain, that the rapid eitens'on which hai n n plaoe in the cultivation of the former, daring th) ast thirty year*, in the real explanation of the gradu* reduction ip the price of grain. It bae been daring tba # - I . r- " LD. PrlM Two CwM period that the potato has become a great and importaa article of cmm-rca in Scotland, in Yorkshire, and along the south co ist of Kngland. lu th? manufacturing districts it has been changed froun being a mere garden vegetable to one of the chief cropi of th? farmer While this change has been going forward according to the I calculations which we have exhibited, the adoption of the potato, in pi ice of gtaiu, wj.i equivalent to convertng onu acre into three acres of surfaon Hraetieilly, the laud under cultivation ?u extended in the proportion ef three to one, by this simple change. The aiUisive adoption of the use of the potato, as an article of food, during the last thirty- years, is, we believe, the tro* explanation of the faot, that this country continued to support a rapidly increasing population, even at a lower average price for grain, notwithstanding the restrictions to which it was subjected by the oorn laws. Out now coines the period of difficulty. Wj have th? increased population, dependent upon this ultivatlou for support. A similar change has been going forward , on the continent *f Kiwrope, where, In many parti, th? potato is an much relied upon as in this country. Suddenly the potato has failed. The abandonment of Its cull n ation to a great extent has become a matter of ordinary prudence. The reverse of what haa been going t'orwaid during the last thirty years, suddenly take# place now. The extension of the cultivation of the potato has gradually added to the efficiency of the soil to SOS! tain population in the uroportlon ofthree to one. The sudden abandonment of the potato, in a great degree. virtually now diminsheses the cultivated surface of Kuropein ttw <iame proportion. Whether the potato crop thM year, be good or bad, whether the disease exlat or notare certainly questions of great importance, bat tba great fact which must lnlluenoe the condition of thin country in particular, and of turope generally, ia Um extent to which the cultivation of the potato la a bandoned. _ On this subject we have made minute enqulrlaa.? From these we have come to the following result* Throughout the North of Ireland/the quantity of potatoes planted in the present year is rather under than above one-fourth; in some parts of the South, and Southeast, nearly one-third of the usual quantity is planted, but in others it does not exceed one-fifth ; in the Weat, , including the land not cultivated at all, the proportion of potatoes planted this year does not reach one-fourth i of the usual quantity to put down the whole of Ireland at one-third 1b a full and extreme estimate. In Scoti land, in the extensive producing districts, the cultivation ( of the potato is nearly entirely abandoned. Many of th? 1 large growers in Klfeshire, Linlithgowshire, Stirlingshire ) and Perthshire, who in ordinary years cultivate HO to 100 acres of potutoes each, have planted this year barely sufficient for the local consumption, in most cases averaging 1 from 2 to 20 acres ; in the immediate neighborhood of i Dundee, Glasgow, and other large towns, the proportion is larger ; but. taking the whole of Scotland, if we estimate the surface planted at one-fifth the usual quantity, we nhall at least not exaggerate the deficiency. In Kngland the pr< portions are much more various. In aoa? neighborhoods we are informed that the cultivation of potatoes iu the present season equals one-half of the usual quantity ; in others, one-third ; but generally, the proportions vary from one-fourth to one-sixth. If we aasume one-fourth as the aTerage, we believe we shall b? near the truth. The next question to be considered, then, la?What ia the usual extent of land under potato cultivation in tha United Kinirdom? In the "Statistical Account of the British Empire," Mr. M'Culloch estimates the cultivation of "potatoea, tumips.and rape." to extend over 2,000,000 acres in togland; and from inquiry, considering the great numbar of allotment gardens, and of small farms in the neighborhoods of large towns, we estimate that the potato occupies at least 1.200,000 acres of the 2,000.000. In tha soma work the cultivation of potatoes in Scotland is estimated at 200.000 acres, and in Ireland at 2.000 000 acrea. Tha ' following table will, therefore show the quantity of land > usually cultivated in eaoh of the three kingdoms, tha ; portions In cultivation In the present year, and tho i portions appropriated to other produce :?

Ab far as the question of human food is concerned, the next and one of the most important 11 considerations connected with these remarkable facta, in y ?What orops have been substituted for the potato? In '* all large farms, where the usual courses of cultivation s arn nhvitrvmiI some other irreen cron must have been " Nubntiiuted for the potato.

This form 1 of the forehead is appropriate to all ideal heads. On this point I Lavater concurs in the same opinion with Winkleman; and I) the ancients thought the hair produced a very bad effect if it i descended so low us to hide the forehead.
