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 part 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, viz: To stereotype the next six numbers, making ten in all, thus completing the first volume be/ore any more are published.

I am now preparing a full report on this impor tant subject to tne Bureaus of Yards and Docks,at Washington, and shall send with it a complete se ries of specimens of wood anc 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, JAMES JARVIS, Inspector U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va. Office of the N. Y. and Liverpool U. S. Mail Steamship Co., Jan. 31, 1854.

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 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 ptfwer, 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, 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, pill suelU gU 'n the cour8e the will The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the growing sense oi weakness of some of the nations of the Old World and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com isel" J?*"1 VC l? ColoniaI extension has developed rJ??Ur iett,e.d 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 Wv war. ' 3 Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive ; but to be properly defensive, it must sometimes be apparently aggressive. Our administration should be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is fuJI of important movements, commercial and political, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an American I forei8rn policy. We must have it. We cannot I 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 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 interna1 and foreign commerce more extended than those of any other people living under one A coftiuent, 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, .tfhwA u ?f the 8ea' lyin* a" around us, look to us ns tho rising power, through the agency of whose example, and ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the bless ings of liberty, civilization, and religion, arc 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 hope, though so laden with responsibility which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to destiny Peaceful arbiter of its The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a bold and earnest foreign policy, such as the condition ot h* ?? demandsi but il wil' 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 ^m18P< ? akl homeand abroad, and to be great in the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing winner T?* ri*ht: an.d submit to nothing that i th k# rmUul ''beral and magnanimous to the rights 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 lalse to those of other nations. ?j?^ then, is the chart by which we shall be guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor to bo honest and truthful. The true friends ot democratic principles we shall cordially support and defend. It. 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 own party?the personal enemy of none of the other. The present Democratic Administration has our best wishes for its success in the establishment ot the great principles upon which it came into power and in its honest labors to attain such an end it will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.
