OF DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED STATES.
By ike Author ot the Republic ot the
United States, 4fce.
THIS important work is now in press, the first
volume of which will be issued early in the
autumn of 1854.
The publication of this work will be continued
by the subscribers ; and in due time they will pub
lish in the several States a complete list of agents,
who will be prepared to furnish copies promptly
in every pirt of the Union.
That the author may have ample time to prepare
his work according to his views of completeness;
that the publishers may be enabled to issue the
numbers with promptness and at stated periods,
thereby protecting the interest of their agents, the
following arrangement is announced in the full
confidence that it will prove acceptable to all, via:
To stereotype the next six numbers, making ten
in all, thus completing the first volume before any
more are published.
The numbers will then be issued monthly, with
out interruption, to the end. Those who prefer
the volume bound will be accommodated without
extra charge for binding; and the numbers already
published, from one to four, will be taken in part
jray, if not injured, at their full cost to subscribers.
In announcing this unavoidable delay for a few
months, the publishers are not unmindful of the
earnest desire of many speedily to possess- the
work. The necessity of accommodating the au
thor, whose labors are incessant, will appear ob
vious to all without particular explanation.

We have had Kidder's Gas Regulator in use in
our respective stores for several months past, and
take pleasure in recommending it to the gas con
suming public as accomplishing perfectly the ends
for which it was designed. It regulates the burn

a handsome per-eentage upon our monthly bills.

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. I am, respestfully, your obedient servant,

organ of the Democratic party of the United
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
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*

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

Mencv of whose example, amfever widening and

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

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
