I PROPOSE to publish in the city of Washing ton, iu Septeml>er, a political newspaper, un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTI NEL. In^in'g so, it is proper I should make known the |mriciples it will maintain, and the policy it will advocate. It will support cordially and earnestly the prin ciples of the Democrat ic party of the United States. It does not propose to be the organ of any Depart ment of the Government, except in so Ikr us an in dependent maintenance of the, doctrines of that patty may represent its opiitious and express its views. It will not be ambitious to commend itself to the people by a blind llattcry of their rulers. It will seek public support by the bold avowal of the sentiments which arp common to the genuine Democracy of the Union, and by the condemna tion of all such as may conflict with them, from whatever quarter they inay come. It will seek to be (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the organ of the Democratic party of the United States. The Sentinel will maintain, as a fundamental truth of that great party, that the States formed the Union between them by the ratification of the Con stitution as a compact; by which, also, tliey created the Federal Government, and delegated to it, as their common agent, the powers expresslv specified in it, with an explicit reservation of all others to the States, or to their separate govern ments. The exercise of any powers beyond these thus delegated, is, therefore, an usurpation of the reserved authority of the States by the agent ot their own creation. The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon the basis of the rights of the Statas?under the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding the latter, it will the more effectually strengthen aud perpetuate the former. With regard to the exercise of the powers of the Federal Government, the Sentinel will take as the principles of its action, that 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 of which it has no delegation of power. In other words, ull powers exercised must be clearly granted, und ail granted powers must l>e used for no purpose, except such 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 labor to inculcate this cardinal doctriue of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will best promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the Slates, by being less ambitious to exercise power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual States the manage ment of all their domestic concerns?while it con tents itself with guarding the confederacy from external violence, and directing the foreign policy of the country to the promotion of the common interests, pud 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, and correspond, with the expanding interests of the country. That policy should be energetic and de-, cided; but should temper firmness with liberality, aud make its highest ends consist with the strictest principles of justice. The real interests of the 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 ot weakness of some of the nationsofthe 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 us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun tries, unless 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 dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, !>y war. Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive; but to Ik* properly defensive, it must sometimes he apparently aggressive. Our administration should be vigilant. watchful, and energetic. The world is full of important movements, commercial and ]>olitii al, 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 l>est |?ortion 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 ol the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilized life, and to human progress?our mineral and manufacturing rejpurces more vast?our facilities and capacity for internal and foreign commerce more extended than those of any other people living under one government. A continent, to a great extent, un explored and cxhaustless 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 mudc through our own limits. Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the sea. lying all around us, look to us as the rising power, through the agency of whose example, and ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the bless ings of Utterly, civilisation, 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 ii|>on 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, it properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. The Sentinet. will, therefore, advocate a boU and earnest foreign policy, such as the condition ol the country demands; but it will advocate it under the flag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must be consistent with the spotless honor nud unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at home and abroad, and to be great in the eyes of the world, it must a*k for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing that is wrong. Il must be liberal and magnanimous to the rights of others, and firm and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in fine, lie 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 lie honest ami truthful. The true friends ol democratic principles we shall cordially support ami defend. Its enemies in the field or in'ambush we shall oppose, and on all prope> occasions de nounce. To our^fiiture brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. Tlie 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 liest wishes for its success in the establishment ol the great principles upon which it came into power; and in its honest laliors to uttain such an end it will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.

OITT OP WASHINGTON, THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 13, 1853. . <?bttrali0nal. Columbian College, Wadlilii^uii, l>. C. fTllic collegiate year of this institution will liere I after consist of one continuous session, begin ning 011 the last Wednesday in September, and closing on the last Wednesday in June, on which day the annual commencement for conferring de grees will be held. The ensuing session will open on the 28th ot the present month. The charges are: For tuition per session of nine months, $40 00 l/se of room, furniture, library, and at tendance 30 00 Hoard, (per week) 2 25 To those who do not board in college the charge for tuition is the same, and for the use of room, furniture, library, Arc., $25 per session. There is an admission fee of $10, and a small charge each session for contingencies. Fuel and lights are fur nished at cost, and washiug at 37 J cents per dozen. The necessary college expenses of a lioarding stu dent will not exceed $180 or $100 per annum. All the bills are payable one half at the beginning, and the balance at the middle of the session. Willi 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 changes have been made in the order and arrangemeut of the students. A new course has been adopted, styled the Scientific Course, and the degree ot' Batchelor of Philosophy (11. P.) at tached to it. It will occupy aliout three years, and will embrace all the studies of the 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 practicul education, as the mathematical and scientilic studies will have greater prominence than usual, parlicularlyin their application to the art* and business of lite. Those who may wish to become practical surveyors, en gineers, or agriculturists, will be enabled, with the advice of the faculty, to select their studies with special reference to those objects, and will receive the aid of lectures and illustrations. The doors ot 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 time. They may, under the direction of the faculty, select such sub jects as are suited to their views and objects in life, and, on examination, may receive a regular certificate of their stauding and proficiency in the same. The number of officers and instructors has lately been increased, and others will be added as the wants of the several departments may require. Measures are in progress for filling immediately the chair of chemistry, geology, mineralogy, and liotany in a manner that will add greatly to the in terest and profit of those studies. The preparatory department has l>ecn placed under careful and efficient management, in a build ing which has been handsomely fitted up for its reception. It has an able and experienced teacher, and is under the general supervision of the faculty. It will thus allbrd the best advantages tor laying the foundation of a thorough classical and mathe matical education. lioarding pupils will be received under the im mediate care ami direction of the principal, and at aliout the same expense as regular college stu dents. The buildings have recently undergone thorough repairs', and the grounds nrc being laid out and im proved in a manner that will add much to the con venience and attractiveness of its already beauti ful situation. - It is believed the College never presented so strong inducements as it now does to young men who desire to obtain a thorough and liberal educa tion.

He is happy to say that the work has succeeded beyoud his expectation, and that he accordingly feels him self justified in bringing it out in an improved style. It will continue to enjoy the supervision ot the same editor, who will be able to devote to it a greater degree of care, and every effort will be made to give iutcrest and value to each number that appears. The views presented in this volume will, if possible, be more vurious than in the last, and the descriptive articles more attentively adapted to the wants and taste of the public. Among other attractive plates which it will con tain, are several ot Central America, Australia and China, countries just now among the most interesting of the globe. In order to meet a wish expressed in many quarters, the ITniversum will henceforth be chiefly devoted to views in foreign lands, while the scenery and public edifices of this republic will form the subject of a separate work, conducted by the same editor, to be called The United States lUu.itrated, which will soon make its appearance in numbers, in a style of befitting elegance, but at a price within the means of all. For that work as well as for the Universum. the publisher hopes for a continuance of that public favor which he trusts more than ever to deserve. The Universum will be published, as before, in twelve semi-monthly numbers, mo that the second volume will be completed in December. jpif- AH subscribers to the work, whether they liafe paid in advance or not, will receive with the last number, as a Premium Plate, a splendid engrav ing representing an historical subject: The Maid ol Saragossu, executed in a high style of art.

M.VHKIKI) IN SpiTB Of THKlll Teeth.?Old Governor Salumstall, of Connecticut, who flour ished some sixty veins since, was a man of some humor, as well as i?erseverance, in effect ing what he undertook. Among other auec dotes tohl of him bv the New London jieople, the place where he resided, is the following: Of the various sects which have flourished for their day and then ceased to exist, was one known as the Rogerites, so called from their founder, a John, or Tom, or some other Rogers, who settled not far from the goodly town afore said. The distinguished tenet of this sect was their denial of the propriety and scripturality of the form of marriage : "It is not good for man to be alone." This they believed, and also that one wife only should " cleave to her hus band;" but then this should be a matter of agreement inerelv, and the couple should come together an?i live as man ami wife, dis pensing with all the forms of the marriage cov enant. The old governor used frequently to call upon Rogers, and talk the matter over with him, and endeavor to convince him of the impropriety of living with Sarah as he did. But neither John nor Sarah would give up argument. It was a matter of conscience with thein?they were very happy together as they were?of what use could a mere form be? Suppose they would thereby escape scandal ? were they not bound "to take up the cross," and live ac cording to the rules of the religion they pro fessed. The governor's logic was powerless. He was in tne neighborhood of John one day, and meeting with him, accepted an invitation to dine with him ; conversation, as usual, turned upon the old subject. "Now, John, says the governor, after a long discussion of the point, " why will you not marry Sarah? Have you not taken her to be your lawful wife ?" "Yes, certainly," replied John, "but my conscience will not permit me to marry her in the form of the world's people." "Very well. Rut you love her?" "Yes." " And respect her ?" " Yes." "And cherish her as bone of your bone, and flesh of your flesh ?" " Yes, certainly 1 do." " And you love him, and .obey him, and re sj?ect him ?" " Certainly, 1 do." "Then," cried the governor, rising, " by the laws of G?xl and of the commonwealth of Con necticut, I pronounce you man and wife." The ravings and rage of John and Sarah were of no avail?the knot was tied by the highest authority of the State. Spanish Ladiks.?On the Alameda or pub lic walk of Malaga, such a variety of colors meet anil dazzle the eye as to make the stran ger at once conclude that whatever attractive qualities Spanish women may possess, taste in dress cannot be considered amonjr them. The most striking novelty on first landing in Spain is the matUiua, or black veil, which is generally worn; although here and there bonnets are creeping in, and Spanish women are sacrificing the only becoming jieculiarity they have left, in order to imitate the fashion of their neighbors. There is an elegance and a dressy appearance about the mantilla which creates surprise at its not having been adopted by other nations; and if Spaniards could only l?e made to feel how un becoming bonnets are to them, the ricli masses of whose splendid hair prevent tiie bonnet be ing properly worn, they would cherish the man tiUa as conferring on them a peculiar charm in which they are safe to fear no rivals. 1 know that I shall be accused of insensibility and want of taste, when I confcss that my first disap pointment, on landing m Spain, was the almost total absence of beauty among the Spanish women. Poets have sung of Spain's "dark glancing daughters,*' and travelers have wan dered through the country with minds so deeply impressed with the preconceived idea of the beauty of the women, that they have found them all their imaginations so fondly pictured, and in their works have fostered what I cannot help maintaining as a mere delusion,?one of the many in which people still indulge when they think and dream of Spain. The women of Spain have magnificent eyes, beautiful hair, and, generally, fine teeth; hut more than that cannot be said by those who are content to give an honest and candid opinion. I have rarely seen one whose features could lie called strictlv beautiful; and that bewitching grace and fasci nation about their figures, and the walk which they formerly possessed, have disappeared with the high ebino which supported the mantilla and the nnrrow Ixwpiina?which give a pecu liar character to their walk. With the change in their costume, those distinctive charms have vanished. The gaudy colors which now prevail have destroyed the elegance that always accompany black, in which, alone, sonic years since, a lady could appear in public. No further pro< f of this is required than to see the same people at church, where black is still considered indis pensable, and on the Alameda, with red dresses and yellow shawls, or some colors equally gaudy, and combined with as little regard to taste. Although 1 have not yet discovered the beauty of Spanish women. I must say that the Malaqnenians are entitled in all that docs exist to dispute the palm with the inhabitants of any other town we have visited. There are some very pretty faces, and verv characteristic of the Spanish countenance. '1 hey are generally very dark; and almost all have that peculiar pro jectiug brow, which gives to the law quite a character of it.s own. The women have a uni versal fashion of putting fresh flowers in their hair. It. strikes one much upon first arriving, to see those of every class, even the poorest, with some flower or another most gracefully placed in their rich black hair; the beauty of which is not a little enhanced by the bright red rose or snowy jessamine, contrasting so well with their raven tresses. The hair is generally worn plain?curls being seldom seen, for they do not suit the mantilla ; and if flowers cannot be procured, some bright ribbon is invariably worn as a substitute. The love of brilliaut and showy colors ap]iearinj* to form a ruling passion in the present day, offers a singular contrast to the fashion twenty years ago, when a lady who would venture into the street dressed in any thing but black, would have been mobbed and insulted by the people. Our first visit to the theatre at Malaga confirmed my impressions of the exaggerated accounts generally given of | Spanish beauty.?Ixidy hmisa Tennison. Or. lloynton wishing to explain to a little girl the manner in which the lobster casts its shell when it has outgrown it, said: "What do you do when you have outgrown your "Oh, no," replied the little one, "ire let out the tucks!1' The doctor confessed she had the ad vantage of him.

One day u tin peddler, with an assortment of nick-nacks, arrived at a village in Maine, and called at one of the housed to sell his wares. After disposing of a few articles to the lady of the house, who seemed to live in the midst of children, she declured her utter inability to buy more for the want of money. "But inarm ain't you got any rags?" " None to sell." " Well," said he " you seem to have a plenty of children. Will you sell me one for tinware.' " What will you give?" "Ten dollars for one of them." "In good tinware?" " O ! yes, inarm, the best." She then handed one of the urchins to the I*edler, who surprised that the offer was accepted, yet convinced that the mother would not part with her boy, placed him in the cart, and supplied the woman with tins until the $10 was made ?P. . , " The man felt certain that the mother woald rather raise the money than part with the child, ?seated himself by the boy's side, who was much pleased at the idea of having a ride. The ped ler kept his eyes on the house, expecting to see the woman hasten to redeem the little one, and rode off at a slow pace. After proceeding some distance he began to repent of his bargain and turned back. The woman had just finished ornamenting her dresser with the tin, when the pedler returned. " Well, 1 think the boy is too small. I guess you had better take him back, and let me have the ware." "No, sir, the bargain was fair, and you shall keep it. You mav go just as soon as you please." Surprised at this, the pedler exclaimed? " Why, marra, how can you think of parting with your boy, so verv young, to a stranger?" " (), sir, we would like to sell off all our town paupers at the price of ten dollars per head." Tne boy was dropped at the door, the whip cracked, tlie tin rattled, and the pedler measured the ground rapidly, and he never forgot his pauper speculation.?Neio York Revielle. The Haw Materia!, for Presidents.?In the neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina, (says the Charleston Standard,) there lived, until the last two years, an aged lady, whose many recollections of early life were very inter esting. One, we remember, afforded us great amusement. Gates had been defeated; the .shattered fragments of his army had been swept like the debris of a tempest past the secluded home, her father and brothers were out under some partisan lender, the tories were forming a nucleus ol organization about the Waxhaw, and supposing this would attract the attention of her relatives, and seeing a young man riding from that direction, she was told by her mother to learn the news from him. She was a bucksome lass of sixteen summers, educated in the freedom of the country, ana being tolerably well assured of her ability to cope with anyDody, was nothing loath to go, and gave us the following story of the meeting: "The lad seemed to be an honest, well-meaning body, but not much in the way of looks. He was thin and awkward and bilious, and rode a ^ress-fed colt, that reeled about so I wondered how in the world it carried him. " How do you do sir?" savs I. "Which way did you come from?" "I come from the Waxhaws." "Did you see or hear anything of our people down thereV. "No," says he, "but there are some tories about there, and we pops them down sometimes." Thinks 1, you look like a funny fellow to try- to pop anybody down, but I did not say so; I just asked him, "Where are you going?" "I am going to Uncle Mc Dowal's. I've had the chills for a long time, and I want to stay up here until I can get well," "And what is your name?" "My name is Andy Jackson." Couldn't do it.?The Cleveland Herald has the following. As n matter of course it is true: " Recently, upon the cars running out of Cleveland, a lady was peddling tracts, playing female colporteur. The tract which engrossed her special attention was entitled, " Give me thy heart,' and was undoubtedly an orthodox aud valuable production. Without a word she presented it to a quiet looking homo, who read the title, and replied?1 No, Madam, I cannot give it; this woman is my wife.' The heart seeker vamosed and the passengers roared." BfeT A N ew Hampshire editor while recently traveling, had his wallet abstracted from his pocket by un adroit pickpocket, while indul ging in a short nap. The thief was so disgust ed with the result of his exploit, that he re turned the plunder by express, to the address written inside the wallet, with the following note: " You miserabil skunk hears your pocket book. I don't keep no such. For a man dressed as well as you was to go round with a wallit with nuthin in it but a lot of newspaper scraps, an invury tooth comb, two noosepaper stamps, an' a pass from a ralerode directur, is a contemptible impusition on the public. As I hear your a editur, I return your trash. I never rob any, only gentlemen." Young Again. * Ail old man sits in a high-backed chair Before an open door, While the sun of a summer afternoon Falls hot across the floor, And the drowsy click of an ancient clock Has notched the hour of four. A breeze blows in and a breeze blows out From the scented summer air, ' And it flutters now on his wrinkled brow, And now it lifts his hair. Anil the leaden lid of his eye droops down Aud he sleeps in his high-backed chair. The old man sleeps, and the old man dreams, His head drops on his breast, His hands relax lheir feeble hold, . And fall to hi? lap in rest. The old man sleeps, and in sleep he dreams, And in dreams again is blest. The years unroll their fearful scroll; He is a child again ; A mother's tones are in Ins ear, And drift across his brain : He chases gaudy butterflies Far down the rolling plain. He plucks the wild rose in the woods, And gathers eglantine, And holds the golden buttercups lleneath his sister's chin. And angles in the meadow brook, With a'bent and naked pin. He loiters down the grassy lane. And by the brimming pool, And a sigh escapes his parted lips As he hears the bell for school? And he wishes it were nine o'clock, And the mornings never were full. A mother's hand is pressed on his head, Her kiss is on his brow? A summer breeze blows in at ilie door With a toss of a leafy bough, And the !>oy is a white-haired man again, And Wt* eve* are tear-filled now.
