I PROPOSE to publish in the city of Washing ton, in September, a political newspaper, un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTI NEL. In doing so, it is proper I should make known the principles it will maintain, and the policy it will adv icate. , It wilf support cordially and earnestly the prin ciples of the Democratic party of the United State.t It does not propose to be the organ of any Depart ment of the Government, except in so far as an in dependent maintenance of the doctrines of that party may represent its opinions and express its views. r It will not be ambitious to commend itself to the people by a blind flattery of their rulers. It will seek public support by the bold avowal of fee sentiments which are common to the genuine Democracy of the Union, and by the condemna tion ol all such as may conflict 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 y of the United otates. The Sekttnel 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, they created the Federal Government, and delegated to it, as their common agent, the powers expressly 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 ol their own creation. The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon the basis of the righu 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 power* 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 1 ?rPf#tat'on 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, all powers exercised must be clearly granted, and ail granted powers must be used for no purpose, except such as is clearly in tended by the Constitution. In respect to the internal administration ofrthe Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled policy ol the Democratic party. It will labor to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy: that this Government will best 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 manage ment of all their domestic concerns?while it con tents itsell with guarding the confederacy from external violence, and directing the foreign policy of the country to the promotion of 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, and correspond with the expanding interests of the country. That policy should be 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 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 nations of the Old World and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com -onmotive to colonial extension has developed Our Milled 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 war681 remonstrance, and, if need be, ky Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive; but to be properly defensive, it must sometimes be apparently aggressive. Our administration should be vigdant, watchful, and energetic. The world is lull of important movements, commercial and political, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an American loreign 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 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 civiliaed life, and to human progress?our mineral and manufacturing resources 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 exhaustless 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 aU 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 liberty, civilisation, and religion, are des ined 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, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a bold and earnest foreign policy, such as the condition ot the country demunds; but it will advocate it under the flag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must be 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 must ask-for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing that is wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to tne rights ol 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 ot democratic principles we shall cordially support j and defend. Its enemies in 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 bwn party?the personal none of the other. Hie present Democratic Administration has our best wishes for its success in the establishment ol tne great principles upon which it came into power; IF one8t lahor* to attain such an end it will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.

Washington, Oct. 2, 1S53?2awtDl (Intelligencer.) [from the P?rUoorrcKpondent of th? Bo*too J Philanthropy* There is near the Barriere des Deux Moulin*, back of the Garden of Plants, an immense building, called the Chateau de Belleville, and which, during the restoration and the earlier years of the reign of Louis Phillippe, was known as the English Brewery, from its being occupied by an English brewing company, at whose head was an English admiral. To lodge their horses and provide places for their vat* and workmen, all the trees in the then park o the chateau were cut down; the park was at least some twelve hundred yards in extent. But notwithstanding the company s resources, the enterprise fell through. Frenchmen had not yet learned to drink beer, aud a public auc tion dispersed everything but the real estate. which fell into other hands. A distinguished chemist, M. Dore, became the purchaser; he demolished the vats and the stables, and rented out the old park as a garden. The who rented it soon gave it up, as ^ween the dampness of the soil and the marauding habits of the neighboring boys, he found he lost.money. M Dore took it into his head, knowing the pas sion the Parisian shopkeepers have for flowers they will go ten miles afoot auy Sunday to distract themselves digging, hoeing, and raking a piece of ground as large as a small table cloth?to affix a sign to the land, to the effect that the whole park was to be let, either in totality or per yard, at the will of the renter. To his utter surprise, instead of receiving some well-to-do mercer, from the Rue St. Denis, or thriving hosier from the Marais, who should walk into his laboratory but u.chiJonmer,v.ith professional dirt on his skin, hotte on his back, and crochet in his hand: and his surpise was not lessened when the chifonnter said he had come to rent some of the old park. He told M Dore, he wished to build himself a country house. A lease was prepared and signed lor ! ten yards at ten cents annually, per yard. At ! daybreak the next morning, the chiffonmer was at work, his numerous family (rich men for luck poor men for children) around him, discing the foundation of the villa; he bought "materials" from demolished houses, at ten sous a wheelbarrow load, but he was unskilful with mortar and stones, he became impatient, and his wife still more so: as it was summer lie resolved to erect a tent and li\e undei that until the country house should be. finished. A few hours sufficed for this to be done, and that night the whole family slept upon the estate. After three month* hard labor the country house was completed; the roof was put on. The roof was composed of old cloth cohered with pitch, and upon which soil was placed: in the succeeding spring flowers were planted in it, and the country house was flowered as an ^The news of this marvel spread rapidly among the chifl'onniers, all of the professions | longed to have his chez soi, freed from the 1 domination of porters' tyranny, and where, 1Tor a dollar a year, he could lead the life of a landed proprietor: M. Dore.'s laboratory was besieged by the chiffon niers; the park was full of life, I houses were going up in every direction; it was divided into streets, places, avenues and passages, like a mimic Paris; everything is in miniature, except the men and women. The ?Teat difficulty was the roofing of these houses, for while " materials" sold lor ten sous the wheelbarrow load, tiles, slate and zinc cost a good deal of money; besides, no one can use them unless he be a tiler, and this chiffonmers are not. The experiment of pitched cloth and soil had not succeeded, for the rains saturated the soil, which, becoming too heavy, broke down the cloth. A chiflonnier of genius dis covered the remedy. In Paris everything may be sold, everything- has its price, from patnote to potato peel, old tin alone excepted; which tooTa pity, for old tin is very abundant here, since nearly all boxes of goods intended for ex portation are lined with it. 1 he chiffonmers, faithful to their profession, picked up what others despised, and roofed their houses with the condemned tin. At first they seemed to be roofed with silver, but aaer they began to be oxydated by the rain they produced the most miserable effect; the houses of the chiffonmers looked like dog kennels. Cambronne was the child of gepius who suggested tin roofs. Like most sons of genius, he has no home of his own; he can do everything better than anvbody else but take care of and make money. He is the mason, the carpenter, the tiler, the nurse, the singer, the story-teller, the drinker, the lawyer, the judge, the notary the scribe ot the place; he is the adviser, the arbitrator, the friend of everybody in the city?he is lodged and fed by the public. One day a speculator entered the city to trouble the equality. .He had some money. He bought, at four dollars the yard, all the yards he wanted, and he built houses a little larger than the rest, and his income already exceeds *10 a week?for, like our Tzigan, he lets out rooms by the week. He will be a man of largo fortune one of these days. Others than chiffonniers live there now; but 1 cannot tel you their profession-thcy are nameless out o l the Villa des Chiffonniers. 11 you ask one o them to explain the conventional guttural i sound they give to it, and he gives an explana I tion, you are obliged to cross-examine him to understand the explanation: for examp^, ?

Why attempt to name tho others, they would demand pages of explanation. The greatest fraternity and Christian charity obtains among all the inhabitants of this quar ter. Some twelve months ago the wife of a ehiffonnier was brought to bed with three twins; the newspapers mentioned it, and private char ity send the mother clothes and food. But she had no need of them ; her neighbors?her poor neighbors, living by the exercise of nameless professions?had furnished her with everything that was necessary, and other mothers, then nursing their ow? children, offered to take charge of their neighbor's. The directors ot the Charity Fund, nevertheless, sent to her two I goats, to aid her to nourish her children, and 1 to encourage her to keep them. Fortunate v, the poor children are dead, and now she sells goat's milk to persons in the quarter, which gives a great increase to the revenues ot the poor family. It is touching to hear her speak ot the invariable kindness and attention she re ceived from her poor neighbors; they never came to see hor empty handed. , Thus, in less than four years, (M.

Dear Colonel: I wrote you yesterday, but I hud last night an adventure of so funny a (haracter, that I cannot refrain from commu nicating it to you and your readers, not for their instruction, but because it may amuse them. I lodge in a room with three beds in it?one beside my own being occupied by a friend. As my friend and myself were about taking possession of them, a stranger was ush ered in to take possession of the third. His dimensions were about equal to a brandy pipe, and his physical man in somewhat the proportion. He entered the room with his coat on his arm, puffing and blowing like a stern-wheel steamboat stemming a current. His first act was to raise all the windows, though the night was a cool one. I said to htm, that we could not stand so much wind. He answered that he must have "air." [ I made up my mind that it was necessary to adopt one of the three courses, stay and get op with a cold, take some other room, or get our new comer to take himself off. I resolved upon an attempt at the latter, particularly as I per ceived, or imagined I did, an unpleasant odor arising from the want of the free<use of soap and water on the outward covering. I tipped the wink to my friend, opened my trunk; and commenced taking out my soiled clothes, at the same time remarking to him, no one could be found who would take in hand clothes worn by me when I had the yellow fever. My subject at once took the alarm. Said he, stranger, you don't say you had the yallow fever, and them ar' things are the same you wore when vou had it." "Yes, sir, I have had the yellow fever, and these are the same under clothes I wore at the time; just smell them, and you will perceive a genuine yellow fever smell." In the mean time, the old fellow had nearly stripped himself, buton hearing this, he gathered up his wearing apparel and made a break for t the door. "Stop,' said I, " I am all over yellow j fever, and you need not fear me. I now have none of it. " ^ es, but your d?d shirts haVe, and I hare been in the room with them and their sickening stench, and I shall have the fever and die: what'll my old woman do, when I'm dead and gone, with all of them 'ar mnles I've bo't and? and?and they've put me in a room with a yal ler fever man from Orleans.'' If ever you have seen a wounded and bleed ing porpoise trying to escape a drove of bis own kind by plunging into deep water at one moment and leaping out the next, you can form soihe idea of the manner in which my alarmed acquaintance made his exit out of our room. The door hardly seemed large enough for him to pass through in his haste to escape. j My friend and myself enjoyed a hearty laugh I and a good night's rest. | What was the sequel I know not, as I hare j not dared to show my face at the office to in J quire, for fear of a rebuke, for so frightening ; one of the regular patrons of the hotel. We know the writer of the above, and heard him tell the story a few days ago. It is a veri table narrative.?New York Courier. Politically Damned.?Mr. Vicker, Yan kee Mack, " Com median to the born Republi cans, related the following good story to us during his stay in this city. It will serve to give some idea of the "principal ingredients" of success in political life away down south. It will be remembered by many persons about this neighborhood that McG., an Alabama mar slial, arrived at Cleveland about two years ago 111 search of a fugitive from justice. He put up at the Weddel House, and, during his stay there, he had a 44 difficulty" with a u person who roomed with him one evening, in which McG. shot three times at his antagonist, only slightly wounding him the third time. He was immediately arrested and put in jail ; and, on t lie morning after the arrest, the followiug scene took place in the prison: A friend of the mar shal entered his jcell, and found him seated, his head resting on his hands, and looking like one who had entirely given up in despair. " Come. Mac,'' said the friend, u cheer up ? the man is but slightly wounded, and the mat ter will not be prosecuted." " Ruined I ruined! ruined I" groaned the mar shal, without even changing his position "Ruined f bah !" returned his friend, "don't be a child ; I tell you the wound is but slight: besides, it is an aggravated case, and, had you killed him, you would not have been ruined I" I know it, said the marshal, suddenly starting up; "but three times! only think of it?to shoot three times at a man, and not kill him! I am politically damned in Alabama/" [Detroit Timet. A Slight Mistake. Scene in the Cabin of an Alabama Boat.? Enter Rev. Gentlemen, and pointing out a trunk to the porter? " Here, porter, take this trunk ashore." Frenchman, rising from a chair close by? " Dat is my trunk, what for you want to carry my trunk ashore for ? Dis is not my place." Rev. Gentleman?"You are laboring under a mistake, sir: that is my trunk." Frenchv?"You trunk, hey ! No, siree?dat is my trunk." Rev. Gent.?" I repeat, sir, you must be la boring under?n Frenchy?"By dam t yon tink zat is you trunk, hey ? Maybe you got one key to aat trunk ? I got one key! Maybe my key un lock zat trunk, too."

[holding up and exhibiting a re volver.] u\ ou trunk, hey? you peestol ? By dam I my trunk too! Zis is my revolv. By gar, lookee here; zis you him buk?" [shuffling dexterously a pack of cards.] " Ah ha I you him buk ? Zis is my deck of cards. You one black leg, hey? I gambles. I beat you one, too, tree rubbers." The reverend gentleman could stand it no more, but bolted through the companion-way, amid the roars of the passengers. We save his credit, however, bv saving that in his retreat he pointed out on the hoiler-deck a trunk very similar to the Frenchman's, having the same initials on the ead, which the porter seized and followed him ashore with.
