May 20?fceoif BONN fc BROS. PROSPECTUS OF TUB "WASHINGTON SENTINEL." T PROPOSE to publish in the city of Washing I ton, in September, a political newspaper, un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTIfl NEL. In doing mo, it is proper I should make known the principles it will maintain, and ihe policy it will advocate. It will support cordially nnd earnestly the prin ciples of the Democratic party of the United States. it does not propose to be the organ of any Depart ment of the Government, except in so far as an in dependent maintenance of tho doctrines of that party may represent its opinions and express its views. It will not he ambitious to commend itself to the people by a blind (lattery 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 conllict 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 Democratic party of the United States. The Sentinel will maintain, as a fundamental truth of that great party, that the States formed the Union between them by 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 States by the agent ol their own 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 elTectually 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 objectthroogh the exercise of constitutional power, for the direct attainment of which it has no delegation of poorer. In other words, all powers exercised must be clearly granted, and ail granted powers must be used for no punwse, except such as is clearly in tended by the Constitution. In rcspcct to the internal administration of the Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled policy of the Democratic pnrty. It will labor to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will bes> promote the freedom and prosperity of tho people of the States, by being less ambitious to exercise power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual States the manage mcnt 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, 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 ol wenknessof some of the nationsofthe 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 it iu the alliiirs 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 coloninl 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, *y war. Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive; but to be properly defensive, it must sometimes be rt)>j>nrciu/y aggnssive. Our administration should be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full of important movements, commercial and political, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an American foreign policy. We must have it. Wo 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 a continent, with no neighliorsbut a colony, and a woru-out, anarchical despotism. We are the only people whose own land, without colonial de londencies, is washed by the two great oceans of the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilized life, nnd 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 continent, to a great extent, un explored nnd exhanstless 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 agencv 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 i A mission so full of hope, though so 'aden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as tho peaceful arbiter of its destiny. The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a hold and earnest foreign jn/licy. such ns the condition ot the country demands; but it will advocate it under the llag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must bo consistent with the spotless honor and unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at hoineand abroad, and to be great in the eyes of the world, it must n-?k for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing thnt ir wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to the rights of others, and lirni and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in line, 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 we shall be guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor to be honest and truthful. The true friends ol democratic principles we shall cordially support and defend. Its enemies in the field or in ambush i we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions de nounce. To our future brethren of the press wo extend the hand of friendly greeting. Tho 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 nn end it will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.

They not only set forth the political econo my and fundamental principles of the federal gov ernment, und the rules and regulations enforced in its administration, but they also define the powers and duties, and, in many instances, the compensation of its civil and military officers The subjects of national sovereignty, neutrality, extradition. &c.,are therein thoroughly discussed, and our revenue laws, land laws, patent laws pension laws, &c., commented upon and ex plained. It is, therefore, believed that public ministers, consuls, governors of States, district attorneys, marshals, collectors of customs^eur veyors of ports, naval officers, receivers of public moneys, registers of land offices, Indian agents, officers of the army and nnvy, and, indeed, all public men will find these volumes a valuable ac quisition lo their libraries. The editions put up in the style of Howard's Reports of Decisions of the Supreme Court, and sold at the moderate price of three dollars per volume. Librarians of States and public institutions are reminded that they may conveniently obtain the work, through their representatives in Congress, if the latter are immediately addressed upon the subject.
