From J*eU?n.
By the arrhral at lf?W York of the Blaek Warrior,
wo aro placed in possession of tho following
itomo of Mexican news:
In tho Harana journal* received up to the 9th
of August, is found the following aypoppio of matter*
in Mexico, the dates from the capital being (
up to the 4th of Auguet.
Guanajuato had ?io#n eotne symptom of disor- (
der, which was suppressed, as were also other
lighter indioatiene exhibited in Zacateeas.
The government journal, DUrio del Uobiemo, ;
had thought proper to reftite the abaurd rumors
of diplomatic mysteries spread abroad by tho one- '
mies of Mexico, with the attempt to bring into
disgrace the' healthfully cooeerratire principles
presiding over her present situation.

"Art. 2. Carvaial, and the Mexicans who accompanied
him in his invasions, are declared banishea

and unworthy of the Mexican.name.
"Art. 3. Any of those comprised in the foregoing
articles who may be apprehended in the territory
of the nation will be tried by court-martial, (
ana punished with the penalty of death."
The Univtrul, writing of the disorders in Guadalajara,
"We have pleasure in announcing to our readers
that in the capital of Guadalajara there occurred
a result which, though without any political
character, was still the cause of disturbing public i
order. Order has been entirely re-established
since the Governor, after haranguing the sedition- i
ists who had made him prisoner, effected the return
to order of part of their forces, and with that i
portion overcame the rest, making a great number i
of prisoners and seizing on six pieces of artillery i
which the insurrectionary party had."
The Secretary of State has written to the Governors
of the mmtier States, directing them to
furnish him with eetimatea, duly certified, of the 1
louses sustained by Mexicans in consequence of
the United States not having fulfilled the eleventh
article of the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo,
which bound them to repress the incursions of the
Several bankruptcies had occurred among mercantile
houses in the interior. The principal were

of Guadalajara, for $90,000.
Rather Cool for the Season.?On Monday
night two thieves forced the cellar-door of A. M.
Fuller, No. 36 Portland street, and by going
through the cellar got into his bar-room, when,
taking the money-till and its contents, some $17
in change, they retraced their way back. Seating
themselves upon the steps in front of the house
they commenced the operation of counting and
dividing the plunder. (
Fuller awakened at the noise they made, thrust <
his head from a window over the door, and demanded
what they were about. Thoy coolly told
him it was none of his business. "You have
been into my bar, haven't you?" said he. "Yes." '
"And got all my change? "Yen. "Well, let
me have it, and I'll give you bills for it; change '
is at a premium." "No, sir." "Well,then/' said 1
Fuller, growing magnanimous, "in the language 1
of the man in Congress, Go home, you, j
where rou belong!" They immediately went.
Marriages or Love and Convenience.?
"Everywhere, but in novels," says a recent writer,
"the marriage of convenience has proved an excellent
institution, while what are called love
matches have been, are, and ever will be, prolific
of misery." We should like to Bee the impudent
old fogy who said that!?if it were only to tell ,
him to his teeth that he lies!?lies like the tele- i
graph?lies like a lawyer?lies like a steamboat
runner?lies "like the prospectus of a new maga- i
nine!" So "marriages of convenience" are better
than love matches, are they? Do you know that
love is all that can make marriage nonest, or even
decent? That marriage without love it a stench
in the nostrils of god and men? That love is
heavenly in its origin, divine in its influence, and
glorious in its enjoyments! while "convenience"?
which is but a smooth gloss for lust or avarice?is
the prolific parent of inconvenience, heart-burnings,
wranglings, discord and divorce? Of course
you don't! but every man of sense and observation
know that the mistakes of youth and romance
in their matrimonial alliances are light and unfrequent
compared with the coldly-planned blunders
and cautiously-concocted disastors of sagacious
bachelors ef fifty, and weary spinsters of
thirty-five.?Boston Post.
Mas. Adolpiius Smith Sfortino tub "Blub
Stocxivo."?Well, I think I'll finish that story
for the editor of the Dutchman. Let me see;
where did I leave off? The setting sun was gilding
with his last rays?"Ma, I want some bread

Mark, says a sensible writer, the laboring man,
who breakfasts at six, and then walks perhaps two
or three miles to his work. Ho is full in health,
and a stranger to doctors. Mark, on the othor
hand, your clerk, who takes tea and toast at night,
and gets down to the store at nine, or half past.
He is a pale, effeminate creature, full of sarsapari
11a. and patent worm medicine, and pills and
things. What a pity it ia that this clans of people
do not lay down the yard-stick and the scissors,
and up the scythe or the flail for a year or
two. By remaining in their present occupation,
they only help to fill up cemeteries, and that's
about as miserable use of humanity as you can
Holding the Reins.?A very happy remark
was made by a young lady who, as the phrase is,
"was going out a riaing." She had been helped
to a seat in the carriage by the gentleman who was
to accompany her, and grasped the reins while he
stepped to the post to untie the halter. By tightening
the reins she caused the horse to start forward.
She was somewhat startled, but finding
that the animal could only go the length of the
halter, she instantly recovered herself, and merrily
"Ah ! how easily 1 can drivo a horse when he
is tied."
"Yes," thought we, "and how easily you can
drive us when we're tied, too."?Detroit Tribune.
Tho United States mail stoamship Washington,
for Southampton and Bremen, sailed from Now
York on Saturday with seventy-four passengers,
among whom was tho Chevalier Cameron do la
Barca, late Minister of Spain. The Washington

Arrival of the Humboldt?Later from
The Turkish Difficulties not Settled.
New Yoke, August 15.?The Humboldt arrived
this afternoon at five o'clock. She brought
one hundred and eigfaty-aix passengers.
It was feared that the Emperor of Russia wopld
decline to withdraw his forces from the principalities,
as stipulated in the proposition made by the
three powers. The Englisn and French fleets
would, in that case, be ordered to pass the Dardanelles,
and a peaceful settlement of the difficulty
would be greatly jeoparded.
A telfrirriinhin fiMnntrh fVnm Dnnithntinonle
iated the 20th states that the Porte and the representatives
of the great powers had accented
ihe propositions of the Austrian Minister, which
arranged that the English and French fleets
ihoulu withdraw from Besica bay, whilst Russia
evacuated the Danubian provinces. Turkey
nrould tlien send an ambassador to open new
negotiations with St. Petersburg;]!.
The Morning Chronicle reaffirms the declaration
that the United States had offered to the
Porte money and active forces.
A decline in the funds has been caused at Paris
ind London by an article in the Constitntionnel
declaring that France and England would not
consent to the arrangement which had been proposed
at Constantinople.
Great uneasiness had been created by the news
of a decree by the Czar ordering a fresh levy
of reefuits throughout the empire; this was interpreted
as a war measure.
Moldavia had declared itself independent of the
Porte, and refused to pay flfrther tribute. A
similar movement is expected in Wallachia.
It is asserted that the Porte intends addressing
an ultimatum to Russia, in which, after paying
due regard to the rights of the Sultan's Christian
subjects, that sovereign declares that if, in spite
of this repeated assurance, the Czar should persist
in offering war, the Porto is resolved to accept
it, but that tlie responsibility must be with
The above document, it is fhrther asserted, has
been communicated to the Ambassadors from
France and England.
Orders have been sent to Hospadars of Moldovia

Important from Buenos Ayres.
New York, August 15.?By au arrival liore we
have later advices from Buenos Ayres. The
blockade was raised at Montevideo about the 20th
June, and the fleet gone over to Buenos Ayres.
The ship Clarendon, for San Francisco, had
put into Montevideo, previous to 5th July, leaking.
Also the ship Bowdich, leaking.
The Yellow fever in New Orleans.
New Orleans, August 13.?The ravages of
the fever continue unabated, and there is no check
to its unprecedented fatality. The number of
deaths up to 12 o'clock at noon to-day has been
200 of yellow fever alone.
[second despatch.]
New Orleans, August 13.?The total number
of deaths in the city, according to the official report
of the Board of Health, for tho past week,
ending at 6 o'clock on Friday evening, is fifteen
hundred and eighteen, of which twelve hundred
snd seventy-seven were from yellow fever, being
an increase over last week from all diseases of
three hundred and ninety-eight. Nearly every
person who possibly could, has left the city for
different parts of the country. Indeed, scarcely
enough are left to bury the dead. Should the fever
continue much longer, there will be no victims
for it to feed upon.
[third despatch.] *>
New Orleans, August 14.?The report of the
Board of Health for the past twenty-four hours
ending on Saturday morning, exhibits 174 deaths,
of which 153 were frbm yellow fever. The scourge
is still on the increase, though the deaths not quite
so large for want of victims.
Tremendous Thunder Storm.
Boston, August 15.?A terrible thundergust
occurred in this city and vicinity this morning
At Georgetown the Baptist parsonage house was
struck, and the wife of the Rev. Mr. Russell, the
pastor, instantly killed. Strango to say, a child
in her arms escaped injury. At Groveland, the
house of William Fowler was struck and
himself and wife knocked down senseless. A barn
was struck at Byfield and destroyed. Another
barn was also struck at Andover and burnt. Several
houses at Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, &c.,
were struck and persons injured.
Fleets of the Heat.
Philadelphia, August 15.?Abraham Woodside,
a celebrated painter, died this morning in
Chesnut street from the effects of the heat.
New York, August 15.?The heat in this city
yesterday was frightful, the thermometer reaching
102 in the shade! The coroner reported ninety
deaths from the heat.
Yesterday afternoon, a printer employed at the
Herald office, named Robert McCurdy, a native of
Newry, Ireland, fell dead while working at his
frame. His death was caused by the overpowering
effects of the heat,
In Brooklyn, the number of deaths yesterday
caused from the heat was twenty-eight?truly
frightful?being greater than those in New York,
according to the population, by nearly three to

Summer Legislation.?In the Boerd of Common
Council, yesterday evening, Mr. Easby, from
the Committee on Police, to whom bed been referred
a memorial from the Trustees of Iarael
Church, asking for permission to hold a fair, reported
a bill granting the prayer, "provided the
said fair shall not be continued longer than one
week, or kept open each night to a later hour
than half-past eleven o'clock."
For a better understanding of the subject, it
should be Mated that the Trustees of Israel

of the Corporation which prevents all negroes and
mul&ttoee from being in the streets after ten
o'clock, or having any public entertainment or
meeting, with the exception of those who are provided
with permits or "pusses" from responsible
white persons.
When we entered the chamber of the Common
Council a warm discussion was in progress, and
Dr. Miller was spicily replying to Mr. Pepper,
the independent member from the Fourth Ward,
who it appears had made rise of the word "farce"
in a connexion which was disagreeable to tiie taste
of our professional friend. We took no notes, but
something like the following occurred:
Mr. Pepper arose, rather excitpd: "I will allow
no gentleman," he said, in an emphatic manner,
"to stnte falsely concerning me. 1 said I hoped
tho Hoard will show that what you said in opposition
to this bill will prove a farce. That's what
I said, sir."
Dr. Mii.ler, (with much earnestness.) "I am
not in the habit of quoting gentlemen falsely. 1
stated these bills were farces. There is an act
which contains penal enactments for negroes being
out after hours, and yet, from day to day, you
repeal it by special enactment, sucn as tnat now
before the Board."
The Doctor then "came down" heavily on the
free colored population, whose condition he described
as in 110 way whatever to be envied.
Dr. Buset, another professional gentleman,
took part in tho debate. He lived in the Fifth
Ward, he said, and tho Israel Church, which is
down by the Capitol, is a "nuisance." [Laughter.]
Crowds of negroes there who line the pavement,
make white ladies and other whito persons
give way for them. lie knew only one of tho
congregation, who is a great rascal. He repeated,
the church is a nuisance.
Mr. Hanson, from the same ward, did not
agree with his colleague, and did not think the
negrqos of that ward were more impudent than
those in any other part of the city. Many of
them were respectable and well-behaved.
Mr. Pepper had another word to say. The
mere fact that these people ask permission to hold
their fair, shows that they wish to respect the law
and be orderly.
It was now six o'clock?the atmosphere of the
room sultry, and iced water in great demand.
With such a subject, under these circumstances,
there was no inducement for the majority to remain;
and so the Board wisely concluded to adjourn.
A Veto Sustained.?Last Monday week the
Mayor of the city returned to the Board of Aldermen,
with his objections, a bill which had'passed
the Councils and been presented to him for his
signature, providing that any person who shall
have paid his school taxes and other taxcB upon
his personal property up to, and who was otherwise
qualified to vote at, the last preceding annual
election, may vote at any special election to
fill vacancies, notwithstanding he may not have
paid his taxes for the year in which the same may
Yesterday evening the subject was taken up in
the Board of Aldermen; and, on taking the question,
"Shall this bill pass, the Mayor's objection
to the contrary notwithstanding?" it was decided
in the negative?ayes one, (Mr. Fitzpatrick,)
noes 8. So the bill was rejected.
Central Watch-house.?The Mayor yesterday
evening transmitted to the Board of Aldermen
a copy of a communication which he had
received from the Captain of the Auxiliary Guard,
in relation to the present condition of the Central
Watch-house. "This watch-house," the Mayor
says, "is unfit for the purposes for which it is
used, and 1 would respectfully recommend that
an appropriation be made either to provide another
building for the use of the guard, ot to make
such alterations and repairs to the present building
as will render it a fit place for a watchhouse."
The following- is the communication of the
Captain of the Guard:
"Washington, August 15, 1853.
"Sir: I deem it my duty to acquaint you with
the condition of the Central Guard-house. It is
unfit for the guard to remain in, as thereby they
are subject to contract disease.
"Last night we were compelled to leave it and
take shelter in the market-house. We had several
prisoners, and had to turn them out for fear
they would suffocate. Perhaps the Corporation
is not aware that there is a revenue arising sufficient
to build a house suitable for that purpose.
Thore was received during the month of June,
for fines and costs, $143 81, and for the month of
July, $139 43. I hope something will be done
for the comfort of the guard and also for the
"I am, dear sir, yours, &c.,
"James H. Birch, Captain A. G.
"J. W. Maury, esq., Mayor of Washington."
The papers were referred to the Committee of
Police, who wo trust will take immediate measures
to remedy tho nuisance of which complaint
is made.
Washington National Monument.?The receipts
at the offico of the society, in this city,
daring the month of July, amounted to #1,122.
At the recent centennial anniversary celebration
of Masonry, in Nashville, Tennessee, the
"brethren of the mystic tie" subscribed $451 55
towards the erection of the column.
During the present month a check for one
thousand dollars has been received from the agent
of the society in New York?the contribution of
visitors to the Crystal Palace.
From the first to the thirteenth instant the
offerings at the Monument grounds were unusually
large?two hundred dollars having bcon
bestowed by strangers, mostly southerners.
The column is now ono hundred and thirtyeight
feet in height.
Travelling Northward.?From our daily
observation at the railroad station, it appears that
never before, during the summer, has the travel
from the South to the North been so great as it
now is; entire families every day appearing among
the passengers. The grand and sublime spectacle
of Niagara Falls; the sea-shore luxuries of
bathing, pure air, and pedestrian and equestrian
exercises within hearing of the voico of "old
ocean;" the attractions of "the springs," (as much
patronized on account of fashionable lifo as for
tho healing properties of the waters,) and the
pursuit after novelty, are the usual stimulants to
the undergoing of tedious journeyings, over dusty
roads, and at the expense of the pocket and individual
comfort. They who have their riven of
Abana aud Pharper muat need* go, unbidden, to

The prevalence of the yellow fever in New Orleans,
together with the fear that the epidemic
uaay extend widely its boundary of operations, has
doubtless, of late, increased the number of southern
travellers; while the attractions of the Crystal
Palace, the most prominent of the novelties of I
New York, have not been altogether omitted from 1
the programme. 1

I PROPOSE 10 pubtleb in the city of W aatil nylon,
in September. a politic) I newopaper, under
tbc name of the WaektngUm Sentinel
In doing ?o it ia proper I afaould Hitki known
the principlea it will maintain and the policy it
il| advocate.
It will au..port cordial y and earncatly the prln<Mplea
o< the Democratic Republican party of the
United States. It doe* not propcae to be the organ
of any department of the Government, except in
bo for a a an independent maintenance of the d<>ctrinea
oT that party may repreaent ita opiniono and
expreaaita viewa.
It w.lt not be ambitioue to commend Itaelf to the
people by a blind flattery of their ruler*. It will
seek public aupport by the bold avowal of tkeaen
uuiciiis wuicii arc uvuamvn iv inv jgtruuiuc vruiw
racy of tho Union, and by the condemnation of
all aucii aa may conflict with fbera, from whatever
quarter they may come. Jt will aeek to be
(and)t will endeavor to desefve tbe title) the organ
of the Democratic party of the United States.
Tbe Sentinel will maintain, aa a fundamental
truth of ibat great party, that the 8tatra Harmed
the Union between thein by tbe ratification of tbe
Constitution aa a compact; by which alao they
created the Federal Government, and delegated to
it, as their common agent, tbe powora expressly
epecified in it,, with an explicit reservation of all
others to the 8tates, or to their seoarate governments.
Tbe exercise of any powers beyond those
thus delegated is therefore an usurpation of the
reserved authority of tbo States by tbe agent of
their own creation.
The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union
upon the basis of the rights of the States?under
the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding
the latter it will the more effectually strengthen
and perpetuate tbe former.
With regard to the exercise of the powers of tbe
Federal Government, the Sentinel will take as the
principles of its action that Congress Bhall exercise
uo power which has not been delegated by the
Constitution, according to a strict and fair interpretation
of its language and spirit; and that it
shall not seek to attain indirectly an object through
the exercise ot constitutional power, for the direct
attainment of which it baa no delegation of pouter.
In other words, all powera exercised must be clearly
granted, and all granted powers muat be ustd
tor no purpose except such as is clearly intended
by the Constitution.
In respect to the internal administration of the
Government tbe Sentinel will sustain the settled
policy of tbe Democratic party. It will labor to
inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic internal
policy?that this Government will beet promote
the freedom and prosperity of the people of
the States by being less ambitious to exercise power
and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by
leaving to the individual States the management
of all their Uomeelic concerns?while it contents
itself with guarding the Confederacy from external
violence, and directing ihe foreign policy of
the country to the promotion ol the common interests
and defence of the common rights and honor
of the States composing it.
The Sentinel will advocate such a progressive
foreign policy as will suit itself to the exigencies
end correspond with the expanding interests of
tbe country. That policy should be energetic and
decided; but should temper firmness with iiberali
ty, and make its highest ends consist with tbe
itrictest i rinciples of justice. The real intereats
af the country upon each occasion demanding attention
will be its guide in tbe course tbe Sentinel
will pursue.
Tbe national policy of tbe world in tbfb age is
essentially aggressive. In tbe growing sense of

and tbe ambitious restlessness of others, a common
motive to colonial extension has developed itself.
Our settled determination to repel interference
From abroad with our own domestic concerns will
prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun
tries, unless by their foreign or colonist policy our
peace should be threatened, our security endangered,
or our intereats Invaded, For when tbe
seltiah intereats ol other nations prompt a foreign
or colonial policy which iulriuges upon our righia
and places in tbe pathway of our commerce a dangerous
and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be
resisted by remonstrance, and if need be by war.
Our foreign policy should indeed be defensive;
but to bcpiopeilu defensive it mud sometimes be
ippartnVy Aggressive. Our Administration should
lie vigilunt, wuichtul, and energetic The w. tld
is full of important movements, commercial and
political, deeply concerning American trade and
American power It is time we had an American
Foreign policy. We must have it We cannot
avoid it if we would. We have larger interests
and a greater stake in the world and its destiny
than every other people. We occupy the best portion
of a continent, with no neighbors Put a colony
and a worn out anarchical disponent. We
tire the only people whusc own laud, without colonial
dependencies, is washed by the two great
xteans ol the world. Our agricultural productions
are more varied and more essential to civiliced
lite and to human progress?our mineral and
manufacturing resources more vast?our facilities
>nd capacity for internal and foreign commerce
more extended than thoee of any other people living
under one government. A coulinent to a great
extent unexplored and exhaustiess in its yet hidden
wealth is at our feet. European trade seeks
the great East through avenues which are at our
doors, or must be made through our own limits.
Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the sea, lying
all around us, look to us as tbe rising power,
through the agency of whoee example, and ever
widening and extending, though peaceful influences,
the blessings of liberty, civilization, and religion,
are destined to triumph over the barbarism
and superstition of the millions of the world. And
shall such a people refuse to lay hold upon their
destiny and act upon the high mission to which it
is called? A mission so lull of hope, though eo
laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed,
must make our Confederacy the harbinger
of peace to the world as well as the peaceful arbiter
of its destiny.
Tbe Sentinel will, therefore, advocates bold ana
tar nett foreign policy, such as the condition of the
country demands, but it will advocate it under the
flag of thecountry?nowhere cleo. It* foreign policy
muat be consistent with the spotless honor and
unimpeachable good faith of the country. To bo
respectable at home and abroad, and to be great in
the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing but
what is right and submit to nothing that is wrong.
It must be liberal and magnanimous to the rights
of others, and firm and immovable in insisting on
its own. It must, in fine, be true to its own interests,
rights, and honor?it cannot then be false to
those of other nations.
Such, then, is the chart by which we shall bo
guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor
to be honest and truthful. The true friends of
Democratic principles, we shall cordially support
and defend. Itsenemies in the field or in ambuth
wc shall oppose, and on all proper occasions denounce.
To our future brethren of the Pre*" wo extend
the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the
rival of no press of its own party?the personal
enemy of none of the other.
The present Democratic Administration has our
best wishes for its success in the establishment of
the great principles upon which it came into power;
and in its honest labors to attain such an end
itwill find the Sentinel .ts friend and coadjutor.
