Below we give (lie >Jew Oilcans Pica ] yune's account of the opeialiuns of Gen. Scott before the (J.ty of Mexico. It is from the faithful and diligent pen of one of its editors, Mr. George YVilk'iu Kendall. The Government, last night, received i dispatches from Mr. Trist who elules that ( the Commissioners had had two interviews anil would have their lust inteiview on the 30th of August. Ourieadeis will judge for. themselves in 1 reading Mr. Kendall's dispatches what chances there are of peace. l''or ourselves, we believe that we are farther from peace than ever. Addition is called to the lact, that it was Gen. Scott who asked for the Armistice and not Santa Ana. Thctcimsof the armistice too will show that iliu enemy is far from being humbled, much less conquered. A great deal of mailer is c owded ot t to-day to make tooin for this interesting news. (By J. C.

SCOTT ENCAMPED WITHIN 'ED O AND A HALE MILES OF TIIE CITY OF M EX I CO -ARMISTICE BETWEEN THE TIEO ARM IES?NEGOTIATIONS WITH MR. TRIST I FOR A PEACE COMMENCED. , From the New Orleans Picayune ol the 8th iust. The U. S. steamship Mary Kingclantl, Cap', f John Davis, arrived at an early hour this morning. By her we have received our letters from j Mr. Kendall frorri the 22d to the 28th ol' Aug., I all dated from Tacu bay a. A cornier di-patch j ed by him on the 20lh, with the til's! account 1 of the battle (ought on that day, was cut off. I From a map and plan of the battle-fields b fore us, we note ttiul they are called the battles of Couireras and Cliurubusco?so called from field works of llto enemy of those names. The victories were decisive, but as far as we can , judge from a busty perusal of a portion ol our j letters, the proposition for tin armistice was ; made by Gen. Scott?probably at the sugges i. tion of the British embassy. The report wt have hitherto given that the city of Mexico was at our mercy, appears to have been un founded. Should peace not follow Ironi the negotiations now pending, another battle must ensue, the enemy having a force of from fifteen to twenty men yet left. But the road appears to be completely open to us, and the city is unit Ilwo and a half ntiles from our encampment. Our victories have born purchased at a vast loss of valuable life, as will I e set 11 by tie lol lowing list?we will give a fuller one to morrow. We see names of men at the loss 11 whom wo weep ; but all have their friends, ami we make no distinctions. Officbks Killed?Regulars.?Mnj. Mills, )5th Inlantry ; Capt. Hanson, 7th Inlnntry ; Copt.

Quitman broke up his ,!11" i ncaiiipiiieiit at Llucun Visia.a small hacienda ''l! between Vienta de Cordova nnd Ayotla, and 'J I" immediately Gen. Twiggs was in motion from ' " the latter place. I5y this move a now line of '"j" operations was lakeu up on the southern and , north western side of the city of Mexico, and ow| the strong works of the Pcnon and Mexicul- .j sirigo, upon which Simla Ana had bestowed s tch immense care and labor, were completely -jJ turned. wer On the ] Gili of August, Gen. Worth marched of a i far us the hacienda of San Grcgorio, beyond jls, which it was found that the enemy had cut up ,no, and ditched the miserable trail along which the j ,t| artillery and wagons were obliged to pass. He cr0, wouui h ivo o'Mii: id 011111:1 i.ruz, uiioiucr iiui i | <1 a emla a league further oil, had put 1111 order ; 'l ln came up hum Gen. Scott fur a halt. It seeuied | evei 1 lint Gen.

Gen.

Worth's division ; ^ Lclore half a day's march was made. ur. At 0 o'clock on tliv morning of the 17th Gen. 1 Worth resumed his trsirch, his route, muuing j g; lurough corn tield's and narrow and rocky ,|10 lanes, along which carriages had never passed Bn,j before. Tlie filing up of the ditches caused ,cr, ojtne little delay, but by 8 o'clock, the advance (arj was In sight of Santa Cruz, and the donv s wit at)d spires of the ndied crfjiilal of Mexico could 1 on be discerned in the distance. The obstructions sob in the road, of which I have spoken, were ob j wc viously ol recent construction?evidence that j but the enemy had but jusi got wind of our ap- j I"1 proadh, and that Gen. Scott had completely , nig stolen a march upon Santa Aua. ! tro Oilier than the ditches aud rocks which had [ been rolled down from the precipitous hill side, "le 110 opposition was made to the aJvance of Gen. Iat Worth tin ill he had readied a point in the road B"' dot far from Sahta Cruz -hut now a scattering . , lire was opmed upon the head of his column liV a lores stationed at advantageous positions | ^ above the road to the left. The enemy w. s , qti kly dispersed, however, by Col. C. Smith's j|u, Ight hatialiou aud the 2d artillery under Major U|1 Gilt. As the divisions neured the hacienda of La Noqui the advancewas again fired upon, but again the enemy's pickets were driven in, ,|rf without loss. ?to A turn of the road beyond La Novia brought ,o| the pit asant village of San Augustin insight s^e and alter two or three light skirmishes, in which ivi die Mexicans had two or three lancers killed cor and wounded, our tr. ops had quiet possession d" Sati Augustin. Our only loss during the sn day was one man, a soldier of Smith's lighl '!' batlalliun, who was wounded from a corn field Ul' near Xochimileo. "" At 7 o'clock on the morning of the 18lh,Gen. r Scott arrived at Sail Augustin, and at 10 o'cl'k. n-r. W.iell, ttu.Q in full mnri'li Inr it.,, rilir nf Mexico by tlie main road. Majors Smith and 10 I'urnliull, Crpt. Mason and oilier engineer ofii ?rc ci rs, were sent in advance, supported by Capt. ^fn Blake's squadron of dragoons, to reconnoitre, as it was known the enemy was in force at or near San Antouia. The party, when within a cr thousand yards, was fired upon from a battery, del which Was masked hy trees, and the first hall to from a twelve pounder insiunlly killed Cap 011 lain Thornton, of the 2d dragoons, besides Pia everely wounding a guide, Jonathan Fitzwaiters. Gen. Garland'e brigade was now ordered to 1111 occupy the hacienda of Cnrrera, within plain jjn s ght and range of the enemy's bat e ies at San t.?| Antonio, while Col. Clarke's brigade and the |)C| hititery under Col. Uuncati took a station in the noi rear close by. The engineer officers were at wo once sent out to tecunnoitre by (Jen. Worth, to 1 i certain the practicability of turning the strong f, a works of the enemy, and in the meantime Gen. 'fu Scott had despatched Capt. I,ee with a suppor- jjJ ting party,composed of i npl. Kearney's squad A|1 r at and a body of the 11 ill infantry underCol. ,jol Gra lam.to ascertain lite practicability of finding a road hy which the village of Sail Angel could im he reached, and thus turn the strong holJ at of t'au Anlemo. This latter party had a shaip am encounter with tne advance of die enemy, the "imain body being found posted al a strong point a(!! not far from lite factory of Confreres. In the skirmish.some li or 8 Mexicans were a'j' killed, and as many more taken pi isomers; on our side not a man was touched. The resuli ol the reccjiiiioisanee proved lavoruble. ft was ij, ascertained that a r ad could be made which yo would enable the army to reach San Angel, tin i and thus turn ill"'strong hatieries at San An- Pu initio, and perhaps otheis the enemy might a-s have upon the road between that and the city nK ol Mexico.' The Mexicans were plainly seen in force at a commanding position near Coutreras, and it was evident that they had a ituttt- ' her of cannon in position; hut at a council [|? held al night, it was determined upon to at- ch lack them the following day. tili In the meantime, w hile thin rcconnnisanee win in wr progress, Ucmral Woith had eatabli bed hie head- git ipiartcrs el die hacienda ?f Curcra, while front the window* coui.Hear mini1 e n of the enemy could lie /">? aeon at work upon the batteries of 8*n Antonio.?

Scarcely din J the advance of General Twiggs got half a ( lo beyond the latter village, before a rattling . 3 of musketry announced that it was actively ,cai jag?d with the outposts of the enemy, and the Me E?vy booming of cannon now gave token that the ' r ted :Jd division had fallen upon another strong jy0| irk.

Allow me to answer, with the uizancc of some facts that none other may pos', that the Editor of the Farmer's Library was | red in the country, conversant Willi and partici- I iug in the operations of a Maryland farm "I acres, on which w ere combined in a remark- I s manner, cit'ry variety of culture and staple, Ii that of various manufactures; as of flour, her, and a smitliAry, together with all the nr'cmonts and appliances breeding improved dv.tic animals of all sorts. There, too, w ere first oduced, or invented and used, all the new imncnts and pro?e-?;s, and vegetables and ma ds, brought into vogue at that period. Along i such opportunities of personal und practical jrvation, at a t ine of life when the mind is laps the most inquisitive and acquisitive, the tor of the Farmer'* Library may claim to have srited that overruling partiality for the general jeel, which led the proprietor of that estate, late Frederick Skinner, of Calvert county, lo our every newspaper essay and pamphlet on icullure that came in Ins way ; and being thus ued with Lis fa'hci N thirst for all that could ghten his pursuit, as soon afterwards as, hy the liality of the truly illustrious Madison, and his -iotic successor, he was confined to the disrge of various important trusts, in a large popis city ; he sought a channel for the indulgence lis early and steadfast predilections, by the blisiiment, at his own cost, of the first, and 1 the oldest, and one of the ablest agricultural nah in this country. Through that (the old limore Amcr. Fanner) he distributed throughtlie country, for ten years or more, the best. rotation then osiant on the various branches of cultural industry : hut that information, valu; as it was, when brought to light, far from diluting the jchncr of agriculture, consisted raof a mass of facts, which it has been, and is business of science lo generalize, thence tlrs the principles on which ll.cy depend, and on knowledge of which, after all, agriculturists t rely for anything like certainty, m the proion of certain results. It would not, indeed, asy, even at tins day, to designate many results aluc, brought to light by the stereotyped das of our agricultural societies, that were not, kc manlier elicited, ami m that journal recordit that period.
