With regard to the exercise of the powers of the rederal Government, the Sentinel will take as the principles ot its action, that Congress shall ex ercise no power which has not been delegated by the Constitution, according to a strict and fair in ihun'nnf N ,'tM lun.^"f,S?* and spirit; and that it all not seek to attain indirectly an object through the exercise of constitutional jioirrr. for the direct attainment of which it has no delegation of power 1. o her words, all powers exercised must be Itarly granted, and all granted powers must be used for no purpose, except such as is clearly in tended by the Constitution.

S y.\ , . F, y shoul<l he ('l,erfetic and de In I [* .8 'ould temper firmness with liberality, nrineinl ,t8f ^h?8t end? consist with the strictest principles ol justice. The real interests of the country upon each occasion demanding attention will be its guide in the course the Sentinel w,"| pursue. ^ w The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the growing sense ot weakness of some of the nations of the (?Id World and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com mon motive to colonial extension has developed | Our settled determination to repel interforonee from abroad with our domestic concerns, will prompt us to nvoid it in the ofTairs of other coun tries, unUss by their foreign or colonial policy our peace should be threatened, our security endan gered or our interests invaded. For when the selfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights, and places in the pathway of our commerce a angerous and unfriendly rivnl. such a policy must l>e resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, by Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive; to ,,e Properly defensive, it must sometimes In* apparently aggressive. Our administration should fie vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world 's full of important movements, commercial and political, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an American /oreiirn policy. We must have it. We cannot u void it \i 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 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 ot the world. Our agricultural productions arc more varied and more essential to civilized life, and to mnnan progress?our mineral and manufacturing resources more vast?Our facilities and capacity for internal and foreign commerce more extended than those ol any other people living under one government. A continent, to a great extent un explored and exhaust less in its yet hidden wealth, IS at our feet. European trade seeks the great East through avenues which are at our doors, or must I* made through our own limits. Europe, Asia. Africa, and the isles of the sea. lying all around us, look to lis as the rising power, through the agency of whose example, and ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the bless ings ol liberty, civilization, and religion, are des tmed 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 high mission to which it is called? A mission so full of hope, though so laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, rh well na the peaeeful arbiter of its destiny. The Sentinel will, therefore, ndvocate a bold and earnttxt foreign policy, such ns the condition of the country demands; but it will advocate it tinder the flag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must he consistent with the spotless honor and unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at home and abroad, and to be great in the eyes of tho world, it niust ask for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing that is wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to the ritfhts of others, and firm and immoveable 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 be guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor to be honest and truthful. The true friends or democratic principles we shall cordially support and defend. Its enemies in the field or in'amhush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasion* de nounce. To our future brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the rivil of no press of its oWn party?the personal ene'itfy of none of the other. The present Democratic Administration has our l>est wishes for its success in the establishment ot the great principles upon which itcame into power; and in its honest labors to attain such an end it will find the Skhtinki. its friend and coadjutor.

Corrfspundence of tb?i N\ Y. Kxpru>M. THE CHURCH OF ST. DEXH . Exghun i.k Bain*, Near Paris, September ?, 1853. The abbey church of St. Denis, although more than six miles distant, may he seen from this village. The country around Paris, von must know, is very level," and 1 think the" at mosphere here is clearer than in our country, for objects at a great distauce are seen very distinctly, and seen quite near?for instance, Montmartre, with its windmills, which you know is an elevated suburb o! Paris, appears so distinct from the Bath gardens, that you would swear it is not more than five miles "off, while, by the air line of the unmistakable rail road, it is more than twelve. The roof and part of the body of the church of St. Denis are visible, although the city at its base is entirely hid by the intervening fruit trees and shrubbery. It looks like a great black mass. By the intersections of the roof it appears like two churches, one twice the length of the other athwart, cutting each other in the middle. Attached to the church is the abbey, perhaps one thousand feet long, now converted into the "Maison Imperial de la Legion d'Hon rienr, for the education of the daughters of the members of the Legion of Honor. Seen at a distance, on the railroad, (it can not be seen near by on account of the high wall which surrounds and hides it,) and in con trast with the lofty church, it looks not unlike a long low range of horse-sheds by the side of a country church in New England. Of course, I must visit St. Denis,?but not, 1 assure you, in the spirit of sight-seeing, or to say, 111 have seen St. Denis." There is a voice in these mausoleums of nations which speaks to the heart. Could I see but one thing in England, it should be Westminster Abbey. The four ends of the interesting churches looks to the cardinal points. Three of them have portals, and sculptured statues, and bas reliefs, and a magnificent rose window of paint ed glass; but the principal, and only one used by the public, is that facing to the north. This has three brazen portals covered with figures, and the door posts and the receding arches of the doors are covered with bas-reliefs of the day of judgment, of the sufferings and triumphs of martyrs, of the occupations appropriate to the different months of the year, ?c., ic.; and above the rose-windows, running across the fagade, are the statues of eight of the Kings of France. The first observation which the visi tor makes, on approaching this great national tomb is, " What a shame that shops and com mon buildings should be permitted to approach within a few feet, and thus obscure ana deform this magnificent monument." The front, which has no pediment, does not appear so high or imposing as the front of Notre Dame or many otner churches of Paris. It it ia all which remains of the noble edifice erected by the Abbe Sujer, in the 12th century. Rising square between the two massive towers (the top of one of which is now removed for repairs) it looks as if it be the mighty gate of giant cemetery. On the top of the remaining tower is placed a dark unsightly traperyium shaped root; appar ently not larger than a sentry-box, and over that, between two uprights, is hung a bell, much like a settler s cuisine?a pot Derween two poles. But we must hurry on, or I shall have no room to give you even a bird's-eye view of the majestic interior. To describe it I have not the most distant idea?it would require months of study, instead of a flying visit, ahd a book, instead of a letter. Enter them as I did. Place yourself by the main portal in the centre, between these immense clustered pil lars, fifteen feet in diameter, which support the towers?look down the broad nave and away behind the high altar, you cannot see the end of the choir?400 feet distant,?twice the length of the City Hall,?your sight is lost in a confusion of paintings, tapestries, statues, stain ed glass, chapels, monuments, and arches. Look up,?the ground vault narrowed to the width of the nave, is eighty feet high, Bup fjorted by two rows of lofty clustered pil ars, which separate the nave from the side aisles, and lighted by sunshine, softened and strained, not through windows, but through whole sides covered with painted glass, iustead of stucco. Beyond the aisles on each side of the body of the church, till you reach the tran sept, are little chapels some fifteen feet square, filled with monuments of kings, or with altars, images, bas-reliefs and paintings, each lighted with a high gothic window, on the glass of which is painted the sufferings and adventures of the saint or martyr to whom it is dedicated. The first on the left is the monument of Dago bert, the founder of the abbey and church, and the first king buried there, wrought in the soft, j coarse, cream-colored stone of the country. It is curious and will repay.a moment's attention. Imagine the pedimented end of a temple?Ionic columns arise at each corner turreted, and a spire shoots up from the upper corner of the pediment. The whole, perhaps, twelve feet by twentv, forms the stone frame of a stone pic ture. A space sha]>od somewhat like a gothic window is sunk back from the surface aboilt a foot. At the base, the body of Dagobert?the crown upon his head?is lying in state. Above him, in three acts, one above the other, is rep resented in most quaintly carved bas-relief the dream of the good Bishop Audoald, how the soul of the pious King is rescued from devils bv St. Denis. The first act represents the de Sarted king in a boat, surrounded by hideous evils, yelling and dancing as they hurry him over the infernal lake, but the undismayed king, with clasped hands and unfaltering faith, calling upon St. Martin and St. IVnis for help. In the ' next act the sturdy saint* are come to the res cue, and are pitching into the devils with holy zeal, and to escape their fury the howling imps are jumping into the lake in every direction. In the third, Dagobert appears rescued and apothe osized, surrounded by admiring angels. After this good service of St. Deuis, Dagobert cer tuinlv owed him one, and in grateful discharge of his obligations, he converted the humMe chapel of the saint into an abbev, endowed it with twenty-seven villages, built him a church adjoining, and selected it as his burial place. Passing live or six chapels, each one of which would furnish matter for a long letter, wo come to the splendid cenotaphs of Louis XII and Henry II, and their queens, beautifully sculp tured in white marble. But we cannot stop, for the far more magnificent monument of Francis 1, on the opposite side of the church, demands our atteution. It is white marble, in the form of a St. George's cross?fills the chapel, and must be at least fourteen feet every way. It is a chef d'ouvr? of the finest sculptor of the restorer and great patron of the fine arts. In the interior repose Francis and his queen on a plain black marble plinth. Sixteen fluted Ionic columns support a richly wrought frieze and entablature, on which kneel the king and queen, their two sons and their daughter. On the pedestal are beautifully sculptured in bas SENTINEL TERMS OF ADVERTISING.

The remainder of the i chapels on thU right aide of the church, made | into one, is called the Chour d'Hiver, aud i? not open to the public. The Suisse opens the door of the railing, and we follow him into tha transept. See the ettigies of the warriors, Du gerescliir, Turenne, Sancerre, lying side by side. See those monumental pillars to the memory of Henry IV! to Cardinal de Bourbon! (who, you inay remember, was declared king by the Catholics, with the title of Charles X, to the exclusion of Henry IV.) And that one erected by Mary Stuart 'to her husband, Francis II! See, too", that catafalque, or dark, canopy, with its black plumes?beneath which, covered by that velvet pall emblazoned with the enormous tleurs de lis, rests each monarch as he arrive*, until his successor pushes him into the vault below. That little flame-painted banner, with the letters '' S. D." in the centre, which hangs against the rose-window behind the high altar, was the original banner of the Abbey, which has superseded the cloak of St. Martin, and be come the national flag. We must stop?I can go no further?I will not enter the choir or its chapela to display their wealth of paintings, statues, and relics. In our country we read history. Here was seen around you everywhere the statue9, pil lars, bas-reliefs, pictures, stained glass, to tell ' some story of the kings or church of France, or recall some interesting fact in her history. There, in that portico, in the presence of princes and peers, Henry IV gave in his adhe sion to the Catholic church?trie act of his life which most entitles him to the title ot great? the act in which he rises above his age, puts an end to civil war, and saves his nation from utter ruin. On that column, nearest the high altar, the Maid of Orleans, thut miracle of France, after she had performed her mission, raised the siege of Orleans, crowned the king at Rheima, hung up her armor dedicated to the patron Saint of France; here she kneeled before the king whom she had created, (Charles VII,) and begged to be dismissed to her flocks, which that selfish monarch refused, promising her protection, and that, if taken prisoner, as she foretold, he would redeem her at the price of half his kingdom. And yet, within the year, he permitted her to be burnt, and never in quired for her fate! Oo into the crypt. A quarry of kings and queens from Dagobert to Louis XVI is there, sitting, lying, standing! The genius of love is the genius of the history of France. As a Frenchman would say, "Here the guardian spirit of France kneels weeping before the genius of history, and consigns to her keeping her most precious relics." Or, as a Yankee would express it, "Here history keeps a registry office, the branch for France, where her kings, bundles of the history of their own times, are neatly labelled and filed away." ? The history of the Abbey itself, is not unlike "The Course of Empire." Would that the la mented Cole was here to paint itl First epoch? Before the Parisii, who procured a vagabond subsistence by fishing in tne Seine and plunder ing their neighbors, had extended their huts be yond their island. Shortly after the martyrdom "of St. Denis on the heights of Montmatre, about the year 250, a few Christians built a humble chapel aud dedicated it to the memory and called it by the name of their martyred brother. Their humility was their protection. No lofty spire, no ostentatious processions arrested the attention, gf their persecutors,, and they were t'hristians. Second epoch?Turn over 500 years; the Christian religion has become the religion of the kings of France. Pepin, the warrior and devotee, is king. Dagobert has converted the humble chapel into a rich and noble church. St. Denis, the martyr,has become the patron saint, and his banner the oriflamme^ of I1 ranee, and his chapel the burial place ot kings. Third epoch?Another 500 years, the noble structure of Dagobert has gu'en place to the more magnificent and ample edifice of its regal Abbot Sujer, who was the regent of France during the absence of Louis \ II in the Holy Land. St. Louis surrounded by the glo rious chivalry of Europe, kings, dukes, and princes, kneel before the high altar to receive from the hands of the abbot the consecrated orillamme, which is to lead them to the con* quest of the sepulchre of Christ! Fourth epoch?Again 506 years. The revolution has burst out like a v'olcanol The^lead covered roof of St. Denis is stripped! The sculptures and paintings fill the museums of Paris! lhe lury against kings pursues their senseless ashes; the tombs are broken open and emptied ot their contents; the skeletons of kings aud heroes are exhibited about the streets of Paris, and the dismantled walls are offered for sale by the convention for the bore value of the materials. Dilapidated and desolate, it was fast going to ruin, when the work of restoration com menced by Napoleon I was prosecuted by Louis XVIII. Paintings, statues, relics before restored?and they divide between them the honor of presenting again to France the sctu blunce of the church which had grown uu with her from infancy, which was so identified with her history and endeared to her by so many re collections of former glory! Smart Girl.?Not long since, a lady, pretty and accomplished, attended a ball in Boston. She at once attracted the attention of a two legged animal, miscalled a man, who proposed to her as a partner in the dance. This indi vidual has great respect for position in society, so, after some conversation upon different sub jects, he asked our voung lady what profession her father followed. She, fully appreciating the motive which prompted the inquiry, prompt ly replied he was a wood sawyer. This was altogether too much for our two legged animal, and he boiled, not noticing his acquaintance again for the evening. The fact was, the girl was the daughter of one of the wealthiest citizens in the town, and her father was a mahogany dealer, sawing out his own stock. The bolter subsequently found out how beautifully he had been taken in. The Old Church Bells. 1 hear once more those mournful belW Break oil the Sabbath air, And to my lips come* back again The long nnuttered pruyer. Mv heart reverberate* with them, To old forgotten'chimes, For with those mournful bells are linked The thoughts of other times. The steeple where, a boy, I climbed, The tombs, the Itendiiig yew. The pulpit and the solemn aisle, The unibrgotten pew; The moss upon the sloping root, The norcli, the lowly door, Are linked with forms whose memory They only can restore. Like voices of the unst they apeak To unaccustomed ears, And bitter thoughts come swelling up With heart-subduing tears; And though their tones seem ssd to me, My bosom-watcher tells, How full of hope have been the chirnos Of those old mournful bells.
