To C. E. Detmold, President N. J. Zinc Co.. N. Y. Sir : A series of experiments conducted by me, with the utmost care, during the past three years, upon all the various painta and artificial prepara tions for the preservation of timber, have led me to the important discovery that the White Ztnc Paint, manufactured by the Mew Jersey Zinc Com pany, serves as a perfect protection against the ravages of the marine worm, and the formation ot barnacles, whilst no other paint or preparation ot anv kind combines the same protective effect. I am now preparing a full report on this impor tant subject to the Bureaus of Yards and Docks,at Washington, and shall send with it a complete se ries of specimens of wood anb metal plates, which were covered with the different paints and pre parations, and then exposed alike for an entire season, in salt water, opposite this navy yard ; all of which Illustrates, in the most striking manner, the invaluable qualities and decided superiority of your White Zinc Paint over all other kinds paints', especially for marine purposes. You are at liberty to give full publicity to the above stated facts, which are of too much impor tance to be kept from the naval and commercial world.

PROSPECTUS or THE "WASHINGTON SENTINEIm" I PROPOSE to publish in the city of Washing* NEL III doing so, it is proper I should make known the principles it wilt maintain, and the policy it will advocate. It will support cordially and earnestly the pnn ciplea of the Democratic party of the United Statej. it does not propose to be the organ of any Depart- i 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 VTwill 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 the sentiments which are common to the genuine Democracy of the Union, and by the condemna tion of all such as may oonflict with them, from whatever quarter they may oome. It will ??ek u> be (and it will endeavor to deserve the Ulle) Urn 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 Uhion between them by the ratification of,the Oon btitution as a compact; by w|uch, 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 ot their own creation. ? ? _ i_ The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon thi basis of the rights of the Statas?under the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding the latter, it will the more effectually strengthen and perpetuate the former. With regard to the exerciw; of tho-powers of the Federal Government, the Sentinel wil\ take as the prlhciples of its action, that Congress shall ex ercise no power which has not been delegated >y 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 ]>o?*r In other words, all powers exercised must be clearly granted, and all granted powers must be , 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 doctrine of Dem?oraUc m j ten.al policyithat this Government will bes* promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the States, by being less ambitious to exetcise nower, and more anxious to preserve liberty, anU bv leaviug 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, 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 >nterest8ofthe country, upon each occasion demanding attention, will be its guide in the course the Sentinel will The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the g^w.ng seu^ o, 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 iself. Our settled determination to repel interference from abroad with our domestic concerns, will prompt us to avoid H in the affairs of other coun tries,^unless by their foreign or colonial policy our peace should be threatened, our security endan Lred, or our interests invaded. For when the selfish interests of other nations prompt a fore'Kn or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights^ and places in the pathway of our commerce a dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a I^c? ?u.8* be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, Wy war Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive, but to be properly defensive, it must sometimes be aggressive. Our administration shou d be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full of important movements, commercial and noliti' al, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an American foreign policy. We must have it. M e cannot nvoif U if we would. We have larger interests and Theater stake in the world and its destiny, than ev?ry 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 lendcncies, 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?our facilities and capacity for internal and foreign commerce more extended than those of any other people living under one government. A oontinent, to a great extent, un explored and exhaustless in its yet hidden wealth i* at our feet. European trade seeks the great East through avenues which are at our doors,or mus lie made through our own limits. Europe, Asia, ^frTa anHhc? isles of the sea. lying afl around us, look to us as the rising oower, through the Mencv of whose example, amfever 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 high mission to which it is called A mission so full of hoi?e, though so laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must m!iCe our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. ,, The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a bo and earnest foreign policy, such as the condition ol the country demand#; but it will advocate it under the flag ofthe country?nowhere else. Its forei?" policy must be consistent with the spotless honor Ld unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at home and abroad, and to be great in the eves of the world, it must ask for nothing but whi b right, and iubmit to nothing that wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to the rights of others, and firm .nd .n.moveubk, n insisting on its own. It must, in fine, be true to i,? own inter...., right.. and honor-it cannot then k*3nch thon?^ the'charT^by which we .1*11 be guided.'
