By the Author ot the Republic of the
United States, Ac.
rilHIS important work is now in press, the first
I volume of which will be issued early in the
autumn of 1654. .
The publication of this work will be continued
by the subscribers ; and in due time they will pub
lish in the several Slates 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 ot their agents, the
following arrangement is announced in the full
confidence that it wiH prove acceptablerto all, viz:
To stereotype the next six numbers, making ten
in nil, thus completing the first volume be/ore any
more are published.
The numbers will then be issued monthly, with
out interruption, to the end. Those who prefer
the volnme bound will bo accommodated without
extra charge 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.
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 Regulftlor in use in
our respeetive 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
ing of the gas, and with as good a light saves us
a handsome per-centage upon our monthly bills.
R. B. Hall, 7th street, near 1,

Washington, March 14,185-1.
I have been ufting Kidder's Gas Regulators in
my billiard-rooms, at the northeast corner of Penn
sylvania avenue and Thirteenth strewt, and also
in my house, next door to the Union printing of
fice. The Regulators operate finely, and in point
of economy I have saved by it at least twenty-five
per ccnt. on the quantity of gas consumed.
C. W. Flint.
Gadsby's Hotkl, October 31,1853.
If I have been using Kidder's Regulator in my ho
tel for the last six weeks, and during that time 1
am confident I have saved in money twenty-five
Cr cent, over the amount paid for the same time
it year, and believe my light is quite ns good as
before using it, and do feel confident that it is a
deoided saving to th? consumers of gas.

To C. E. Dft mold. President N. J. Zinc Co., JV. lr.
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 lor 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 of
barnacles, whilst no other paint or preparation of
any kind combines the same protective effect.
1 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 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, respectfully, your obedient servant,
Inspector U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va.

The steamers of this company use exclusively
the Zinc Paint manufactured by the New Jersey

cided superiority over all other paints.

The Sentinel will maintain, as a fundamental
truth of that great party, that the States formed the
Union between them by the ratification of tht? Con
stitution as a compact; by which, also, theycirealted
the Federal Government, and delegated to it,
11 their common agent, the powers expressly
specified in it, with an explicit reservationofall
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 oi
l'1 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 "hall ex
ercise no power which has not been delegated by
the Constitution, according to a strict and lair 1 -
terpretation of its language and spirit; and that
shall not seek to attain indirectly an object through
the exercise of constitutional power, for the direct
attainment of which it has 110 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 clearl\
tended by the Constitution.
In respect to the internal administration of' the
Government, the Sentinel will sustain thesettled
nolicv of the Democratic party. It will labor t
inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democraticin
ternal policy:?that this Government will be si
promote the'freedom and prosperity of the people
of the States, by being less ambitious to exercue
power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and
bv leaving to the individual States the manage
ment of all their domestic concents---while it con
tents itself with guarding the confederacy from
external violence, and directing the loreign pobcy
of the country to the promotion of the eommon
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
min "pics of justice. The real interests of the
country? upon each occasion demanding attention,
wiU be its guide in the course the Sentinel will
