Those who prefer the volume bound will be accommodated without extra churge for binding; and the numbers already published, from one to four, will be taken in part pay, if not injured, at their full cost to subscribers.

To C. E. Dei mold, President N. J. Zinc Co., N T. Sir: A series of experiments conducted by me, with the utmost care, during the past three years, upon all the various paints and artificial prepara tions for the preservation of timber, have led me to the important discovery that the White Zinc Paint, manufactured by the New Jersey Zinc Com pany, serves as a perfect protection against the ravages of the marine worm, and the formation ol barnacles, whilst no other paint or preparation ot any 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 specimeus of wood ant. 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 ol 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, respectfully, your obedient servant, JAMES JARVIS, Inspector U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va. Office or the N. Y. and Liverpool U. S. Mail Steamship Co., Jan. 31, 1854.

PROSPECTUS OF THE "WASHINGTON SENTINEI-" I PROPOSE to publish in ihe city of Washing ton, in September, a political newspaper, un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTIJ NEL. In doing so, it is proper I should make known the principles it will maintain, and the policy it will advocate. It will support cordially and earnestly the prin ciples of the Democratic party of the United States. it doc? 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. 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 the sentiments which are 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 may come. It will seek to be (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the organ of the Democratio party of the United Slates. The Sentinel will maintain, as a fundamental truth of that great party, that the States formed the I Union between them l?y 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 Slates by the agent ot their owu creation. , The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon the basis of the rights 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 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 constitntional pwcer, for the direct attainment of which it has no delegation of power. 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 Democratic in lernnl policy:?that this Government will besi promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the Stutes, by being less ambitious to exercise power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual States the manage luent of all their dvauxtic 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 foreigu 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 entlisconsist 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 01 weakness of some of the nations of the Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com mon motive to colouial extension has developed iself. Our settled determination to repel interference fcom abroad with our domestic concerns, will prompt us to avoid it iu 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, l?y war. 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 full of important movements, commercial and politi'.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 best portion of n continent, with no neighbors but a colony, and a worn-out, anarchical despotism. We are the I only people whose own land, without colonial de tendencies, 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?ourfacilities 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 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 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 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 ol the country demands; but it will advocate it under the flag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must lie consistent with the spotless honor and unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at home and abroad, and to be grem in the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing that ir wrong. It must be liberal 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 false to those of other nations. Such, then, is the chart by which wc shall be guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor to be honest and truthful. The true friends ot democratic principles we shall cordially support and defend. Its enemies in the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions de nounce. DUIICO. To our future brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the rival of no press ot 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 irreat principles upon which itcame into power; and in its honest labors to attain such an end it will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.
