IPROP<.WH to publish in the city of Washing ton, in September, n political newspaper. un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTI NEL. In doing so, it is proper I should make known the principle* it will maintain, and the policy it will uiivocate. It will support cordially uml earnestly the prin ciples of the Drillocrutic party of the Uniltd States. It does not propobe to he the organ of any Depart ment ol the Government, except in so far as an in dcpcnduul maintenance of the doctrines of that party may represent its opinions and express its views. It will not lie ambitious to commend itself to the people by a blind llattery of their rulers. It will seek public support by the bold avowal of the sentiments which ore common to the genuine Democracy of the Union, and by the condeintia- j lion of all such as may coutiict with them, from ' whatever quarter they may come. It will seek to be (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the organ of the Democratic party of llu? United Slates. The Skntinkl will maintain, as a fundamental truth of that great party, thai the States Ibrmed the Union between tlieni bv the ratification of the Con stitution as a compact; by which, also, they created the Federal Government, and delegated to It, as their common agent, the powers expressly specified in it, with au explicit reservation of all others to^ the States, or to their separate govern ments. The exercise of any powers lieyond these thus delegated, is, therefore, an usurpation of the reserved authority of the States by the 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 the former. With regard to the exercise of the powers of the 1 Federal Government, the Sentinel will take as the principles of its action, th.t Congress shall ex ercise no power which has not been delegated by the Constitution, according to a strict and fair in terpretation of its language and spirit; and that it shall not seek to attain indirectly an object through the exercise of constitutional power. for the direct attainment ot which it has no ilclc trot ion of poirer. In other words, all power* exercised must be cleaHy granted, and till granted jiowers must be useiHbr no purjiose, except ouch as is clearly in tended by the Constitution. In respect to the internal administration of the Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled policy of the Democratic party. It will lalior to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will best promote the freedom and prosperity of the people ol the States, by being less ambitious to exercise i>ower, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual States the manage ment ol all their domestic concerns?while it con- j tents-itself with guarding the confederacy from external violence, and directing the foreign |>olicy ot the country to the promotion of the common | interests, and defence of the common rights, and i honor of the Slates coui|>oaing it. I ^ Sentinel will advocate such a progressive foreign policy as will suit itself to the exigencies, and correspond with the expanding interests of the country. That policy should l?c energetic and de cided; but should temper firmness with liberality, , and make its highest ends consist with the strictest principles of justice. The real interests of the i country, upon each occasion demanding attention, will be its guide in the course the Sentinel will pursue. The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the growing sense of weakness of some of the nations of the Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com mon motive to colonial extension has developed itself. Our settled determination to repel interference from abroad with our domestic concerns, will prompt lis to avoid it in the affairs of other coun tries, unless by their foreign or colonial policy our peace should lie threatened, our security endan gered, or our interests invaded. For when the selfish interests of other nations prompt n foreign or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights, and places iu the pathway of our commerce a dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a |?olicy must be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be,, by war. Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive; but to be proper!)/ defensive, it must sometimes be apparent/// aggressive. Our administration should be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full of important movements, commercial and political, deeply concerning American .trade and American power, h is time we had an American foreign policy. We must have it. Wo cannot avoid it if we would. Wo have larger interests, and a greater stake in the world and its destiny, than every other people. We occupy the best portion ol a continent, with no neighlmrs but a colony, and a worn-out, anarchical despotism. We are the only people whose own land, without colonial de pendencies, is washed by the two great oceans of the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilized life, and to human progress?our mineral and manufacturing resources more vast?ourfacilities and capacity for internal and foreign commerce inore extended than those of any other people living under one government. A continent, to a great extent, un explored and exhaustlosrt in its yet hidden wealth, w at our feet. European trade seeks the groat East through avenues which are at our doors, or must he made through our own limits. Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the sea, lying all around us, look to ns as tiie rising power, thronuh the agency of whose example, and ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the bless ings of liberty, civilization, and religion, are des tined to triumph over the barbarism and supersti tion of the millions of the world. And shall such a people refuse to lay hold upon their destiny, and act upon the liich mission to which it is called > A illusion so lull ot hope, though so laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the jieaceful arbiter of its destiny. 1 he Se>:tinkl will, therefore, advocate a bold and earnest foreign policy. such as the condition of the country demands; hut it will advocate it under the flag of the country?nowhere else, ltd foreign policy must l?e consistent with the spotless honor and uniiiipeachublc good faith of the country. To lie respectable at home and abroad, and to be great in the eyes ol the world, it must usk for nothing bill what is right, and submit to nothing that is wrong. It must be liberal and mnrnnuimous to the rights ol others, and firm mid immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in fine, be true to its own intereMs, rights, and honor?it cannot then be false to those of other nations.' Such, then, is the chart by which we shall be guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor to be lamest and truthful. The true friends of democratic principles we shall cordially support nnd defend. Its enemies iu the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions de nounce. To our future brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the rival of no press of its own parly?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 itcumc into power; und in its honest labors to attain such an end it will find the Sentinel its Iriend nnd coadjutor.

With a view of giving to the different depart ments of instruction a wider extension, and at the same time of meeting a public want by rendering the advantage of the college available to a larger number and a more varied class of students, some important chuuges have been made in the order and arrangement of the students. A new course has been adopted, styled the Scientific Course, aud the degree of Batehelor of Philosophy (B. P.) at tached to it. It will occupy about three years, and will embrace all the studies of tlie regular course for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, with the ex ception of the ancient languages. This course will be specially adapted to those who wish to ob tain what is called a praetieal education. as the mathematical and scientific studies will have greater prominence than usual, particularly in their application to the arts and business of life. Those who may wish to become practical surveyors, en gineers, or agriculturists, win be enabled, with the advice of the faculty, to select their studies with special reference to those objects, and will receive the aid of lect ures and illustrations. The doors of the College will also be opened to those who may wish, under its general regulations, to pursue any branch of study for any length of lime. They may, under the direction of the facility, select such sub jects as are suited to their views and objects in life, and, on examination, may receive a regular certificate of their standing and proficiency in the same. The number of officers and instructors has lately been increased, and others will be added as the wants ol the several departments may require. Measures are ill progress fiir filling immediately the chair ol chemistry, geoloyy, mineralogy, and liotany in a manner that will add greatly to the in terest and profit of those studies. The preparatory department lias been placed under careful and efficient management, in a build ing which has been handsomely fitted up for its reception. It has an able aud experienced teacher, aud is under the general supervision of the faculty. It will thus afford the best advantages for laying the foundation ol a thorough classical nnd mathe matical education. Boarding pupils will be received under the im mediate cure aud direction of the principal, and at about the same expense as regular college stu dents. 1 he buildinws have recently undergone thorough repairs, and the grounds are bcin# laid out and im proved in a manner that will add much to the con venience nnd attractiveness of" its already beauti ful situation.

THK PRESENTMENT MHHI.HSKII. The court was in secret session till the mid die of the afternoon. The committer of seven who hud been appointed oil Tuesday, consist ing of those bishops who had not been present ut tho former court, reported in favor or a mo tion to dismiss tho presentment. This paper is as follows: # The committee appointed to confer with the presenting bishops and respondent, tu ascertain whether they cannot come to some understanding which shall ho mutually satisfactory, and also fully niiswer the purposes of justice, beg leave to re port that, upon consultation with the preseutmg bishops. they found that ur? understanding could be come to of the sort contemplated in the order of tile court?the presenting bishops feeling them selves unable lo withdraw their presentment un der any such acknowledgment of error as the re spondent was willing to make. The committee then conferred with the respond ent, who expressed himself quite ready to ac knowledge, (is lie had nlrcady done to vomu ex tent in open court, such error tis his conscience accused him of. The result of which conference was the paper embodied in the preamble and or ders now submitted as a basis of a settlement of this vexed and painful question. T. C. Bkowseli, Jonks A. Otky, Lkonxdas Polk, Stephen Elliott, G. W. Freeman, John Williams, r Jonathan Wainwrioht. The presenting bishops put in the following paper, which was placed upon the record, ana the motion to dismiss was then unanimously udopted: To the Court of Bishops: The presiding bishops having been informed by a committee of the court that a proposal is now under consideration to dis miss tho presentment, upon the several grounds stated in a report of the committee, the chief of which is a certain acknowledgment on the part of the respondent, do represent to the court that the exclusive right of withdrawing tho presentment is with the presentors ; that the only legal mode of dismissing those charges by the court is to try them by the ovidence; that the presentors stand ready with their evidence to enter on the trial which they have contended for, and they feel themselves lwund to ask that the court will call oil the respondent to plead guilty or not guilty to the presentment. With this statement of the legal position o(,the presentors, as representing the executive of the church in this case, the undersigned are prepared to abide by such action as the c?tirt may take in the premises. (Signed) WILLIAM MEADE, CU AS. 1'. McILVAINE, GEORGE BURGESS. Two resolutions were also adopted, denying the right of a diocese to interfere between its bishop when presented by three bishops and the court convened for his trial, and declaring the canonical and moral justification of the pre senting bishops. Whereas very serious embaarassments have been thrown in the way of the action of this court by tho postponement of tho trial of the original presentment, and afterwards by the decree and .yrder of tho court of bishops which assembled at Camden in 1852, and continued its sessions by adjournment at Burlington, to wit: Wliereupofi it was decreed that, whereas previ ous to the making of the prenentmcnt uow before this court, the convention of New Jersey had in vestigated most of the matters contained therein, and bad determined that there was 110 ground for presentment, therefore Orilrred. That as to the matters thus acted upon by said convention, ibis court is not called upon to proceed further? which decree unci orders have been pleaded in bar to (lie trial of the present presentment; and whereas, t lie convention of. the diocese of New Jersey has, through a committee of its most in fluential and honorable laymen, satisfied itself that whatever may have been the imprudencies, in word and act of the respondent, there was not intention of crime or immorality 011 his part? and whereas, the diocese of the respondent is now engaged in raising $135,000 for the release of all embarrassment of St. Mary's Hall, Bur lington College, and Riverside, the surplus in come of which property, when thus released, is to bo annually applied to the liquidation of the remaining dubt of the respondent, and whereas the respondent conies into court and says: Rishop Doave's Admissions.?The under signed. in prosecuting his plans of Christian education, in connection with St. Mary's Hall and liurlingtou College, found that the ex penses of tho enterprise greatly exceeded his calculations; while the assistance on which he has confidently relied, perhaps too sangninely, fell aWbgether short of what he deemed his reasonable expectations. In this condition of things, l?eing entirely alone and without advice, every step which he advanced involved him more and more deeply in pecuniary embarrass ments. Ho admits that ho made representa tions which, at the time, lie believed to l?e cor rect; but many of which turned out, in the event, to be erroneous. He was also led, by hi* too confident reli | ance in anticipated aid, to make promises which |ie fullv expected to perform ; but which, expe rience has taught liiin, were far too strongly expressed. He was also induced, for the sake of obtaining money to meet his necessities, to resort to methods, by the payment of exorbitant interest on loans, which he did not suppose was in contravention of the law, and which com mon usage seemed to liini to justify. He also, in entire confidence in his'ability to replace them, inado use of certain trust funds, in a way which he deeply regrets; and although they have long been perfectly secured, does not now justify. The embarrassments here referred to were followed*!)? a long and well-nigh fatal illness, which, withdrawing him entirely from the busi ness which he had carried on alone, was mainlv instrumental in the entire failure of his jiecuni ary atfairs. Tho perplexity arising from this failure, with the protracted inlirmitv which fol lowed his sickness, made him liuble to many errors and mistakes which might easily bear tho appearance of intentional misrepresenta tions. In connection with the assignment of his property, ho set his name and oath to an inventory of his goinls, and also to a list of his debts, which he believed to be correct?an act which he grieved to find had given rise to an impresssion in the minds of some that he ex hibited an insensibility to the awful sanctions of the oath of a Christian man; but while he laments the impression, ho declares that this act was only done under legal advice, and in the firm conviction of its correctness. Some time after his recover)' from the illness above alluded to, but while he was still in the midst of his perplexities, smarting under his heavy disappointments, and wounded by the imputations to which, in some quarters, he was subjected, the letter of the three bishops came tn him. He has no disposition to ascribe to them any other than just and proper motives in thus addressing him, but at the time when he received the communication he received it otherwise, and under tho strong excitement of the moment penued pamphlets, part of which hs doea not now justify, and expressions in WASHINGTON SENTINEL TERMS OF ADVERTISING.

In reference to his indebtedness, he now re news the declaration of intention which he has constantly made and lias acted on to the tit most of his ability thus for?to devotu bis means, efforts, ana inllueuce, in dependence upon God's blessiug, to the payment, principal aud interest, of everyjust demand against him? an expectation which there is reasonable hope, of having fulfilled, since a committee of the trustees and friends of Burlington College, by whom both iustitutious are now carried on, have undertaken an interprise which is nearly completed, to discharge the whole of the mort Sige debt, and thus secure the property ut ivcrside and St. Mary's liall, with that of Burlington College, to the church for ever, for the purpose of Christian education; and this done, the trustees have further agreed to appro priute during his life, the Rurphut uieoui?*ol both to the lMjuidattou of all utfcer debt j, iu carrying on the said institutions: that, in tl??\ course of all these transactions, huniiui infir mity may hare led him into many errors, he deeply feels?he does not wish to justify or ex cuse them. If scandal to the church, and injury"to the cause of Christ, have arisen from them, they are occasion to him of mortification and regret. For these things, in all humility and sorrow before God and man, he has always felt himself liable to, and willing to receive the friendly reproofs of his brethreu in Christ Jesus, and especially of the bishops of this church. * G. W. DOANE, Bishop of New Jersey. Wherefore, ordered, that the presentment be fore this court be dismissed, and the respond ent be discharged without delay. The committee likewise recommend the adop tion of tho .following orders: 1st. That no order or deerce of the court, in October, ItiCni, or of tliia court, shall be taken to admit the right of any diocese to come between h court of bishops ond the respondent bishop, atler canonical presentment first mnde by three bishops. 2d. That the court believes the presontors to have acted in good faith, and in a desire and de termination to carry out the law of the church, in such case made and provided, in the painful duty which they felt themselves called upon to per form. After a long delmte, and speeches by Bish ops Potter, Wain weight, McCoskey, Whitting ham, and others, the report of the committee was unanimously adopted.?Albany A ri/iu. Story of an Intrepid Chamhhrmald.? Galigrufnfs Messenger tells the following cu I rious story. Annette, a young cluimbermaid | of Marne, had kept the rooms of two wealthy bachelors for several years. She wanted to I get married, but her fover was so poor that they durst not venture. These bachelors were, brothers, and one day they had sold some pro perty which they owned jointly, and the money, amounting to 106,000 francs, was all in bills of the Bank of France, too late to take it to Paris that afternoon. At midnight a great noise was heard in the house. Annette ran and rapped at her masters' door, saying that robbers were at work below. "You have a gun,'' -days she, " take it and shoot the villians." Both the bachelors were much ; frightened. One l>egttn to barricade the door, I while the other removed a tile from the henrtli to secret the bank bills. " Fools," said the girl, | " they will murder us all?give me the gim I"? She seized a double barreled gun. which laid up | on a shelf, and started down stairs, the two frightened men watching her movement* with I out saying a word. Presently bang went the j gun, aud' a groan was heard?bang went the second barrel, and now a screech of pain re sounded through the house. Annette soon came tripping up the stairs, and asked for powder and ball to reload. The astonished bachelors gave Jpr the requisite charges, but soon steps were heard retreating from the house. All three then went cautiously down stairs, when lo! a pool of blood dearly showed that one robber at least had paid tliu penalty of his rush attempt. In the .morning it | was plain to be seen that the body of the victim had Wen dragged by his companions to the j river. Blood marked the whole distance, and | the police were iustantly on the al?rt for the arrest of the living thieves, and the discovery I of the body of the dead one. All wai vain, however; but the interpidity of the poor girl was discussed far and near. The grateful bachelors, knowing that Annette wanted to marry, prepared to give lier a dower. I "Ah ,Monsieurs,"' replied she, how chu 1 leave you??you may again l>e attacked by robbers.' "But we will not. nevertheless, stand between you and happiness?here are thirty thousand francs?you have saved our lives, and have richly deserved the money. If you choose to live in this house with your husband, we shall repair the lower part for that purpose, ajid you can theu be paid for keeping our rooms neatly, as at present." Annette did not hesitate to accept the dower and the house. It was many years before the res I facts re lative to this midnight attack of robbers came I to li^bt. The rich bachelors were then both dead, and hud willed Annette .another thirty thousand francs. The robbers, it seems, were not of plural number, but only Annette's lover alone. The blood was from a lamb, that bad been killed for the occasion. Indeed the whole I was but a ruse by the two lovers to open the hearts and the purses of the rich bachelors.
