Mr. Howe said that the second section pro vided sufficient safeguards against corrupt Cabinet officers. Mr. Fessenden thought tho President ought to have the right to remove Cabinet officers during the recess of Congress. To say he should not wes treating the Executive with disrespect. Mr. Howard stated that tho President had reappointed men rejected, by the Senate. Mr. Johnson said that the practice was in conflict wall the spirit of the Constitution. It enabled the President to take all power away from tho Senate. As to the President's power of removal, it had not been seriously question ed. Mrr. Patterson thought the power might be abused. The question was then taken. Mr. Shernuin offered an amendment, that no money should be paid out of the Treasury to any person having been nominated for office, rejected by the Senate, and subsequently ap pointed to such office for any fee, salary, or perquisite, after the close of the session of the. Senate during which liis uominati on was re-* jected; ttie penalty for disobeying orders, being $5,000 or $10,000, and imprisonment not more than five years. Mr. Edmunds approved, but would prefer that an independent bill be introduced.

The Senate amendment to the House bill to regulate the franchise in the territories of the United States was concurred in, and will gc to the President for his signature. The Senate joint resolution appropriating $15,000 tor the expenses ot the Retrenchment Committee, was sharply criticised by Mr.AVard, who thought the final act of the committee did not look much like retrenchment. He wanted to know if they had saved that much to the Government. Mr. Sckeuck, a member of the committee, could not tell. The resolution was passed. The Senate bill for the admission of Nebras ka was taken up. Mr Garfield wished to have it submitted to the Committee on Territories. Mr. Ashley moved the previous question. Mr. Garfield did not wish to vote now on a bill which allowed a State to come in on the condition stated in this bill, which might be attached to a bill to admit South Carolina. If ' Nebraska was admitted under this bill, Con I gress might be compelled by that precedent to admit every Southern State on precisely the I same terms. Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, appealed to Mr. Ashley not to press the bill to a vote now. The House had just pas ed a bill securing to all male citi zens in the territories the right of suffrage. It is now proposed to paes another for Nebraska, which expressly disfranchises persons whom the House had just declared should be enfran chised. Mr. Garfield thought that the time might come back to the bolters in Congress when called upon to pass ou some of the Southern States. Mr. Wilson explained that the failure of Ne braska to perform the prescribed conditions, would be to throw the question into the courts of the United States whether colored people were entitled to vote tn Nebraska. Mr. Davis wished to have the bill farther dis cussed. Mr. Washburne, of Illinois, moved to lay it on the table. Mr. Garfield to Mr. Washburne—If you want to kill the bill go ahead. Mr. Washburne replied that he did, and wanted to kill any bill. (Laughter). The House refused to lay the bill on the table by a vote of 41 to 107. Mr. Randall insisted while taking the ayes and nays that the count should be completed; the House was not a circus. Mr. Ashley assented to the proposal to bring up the bill to-morrow. At 4 P. M. the House adjourned. Califoruin ansi China. San Fbancisco, Jan. 9.

T H E Pit I S B For 1867. Will) the opening of the new year we presented to die readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Ralarged to the aize of the largest New Ragland Dailies. The enlargement of our doily eilitiou iy equivalent to the addition of between three and four columns to Its size. Thin additional space will l>e devoted to de tails of important events, which we Lave heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as we have lately been obliged to omit «d together. What tho character of tho paper thus enlarged will lie, its past history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty oi Maine. It was impossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press will continue to defend tho principles of the Liberal party of America. The war has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle I during which aristocracy at the South and dcmocra- 1 cy at the North grew up side by side, a period of jealousy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a stale of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us untie! patod. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing is settled till it is settled right. We must have de mocracy at the South us well as at the North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, freedom of ; speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Ot ; the pruiound convictions of the Republican party ol j Maine, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. The present year will probably witness the exten- ■ sion of the telegraph round the w orld. The comple tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, I which has already-begun, in the management of j newspapers. The leading features of the world’s i history will be registered from day to day by the tel egraph. The expense of special dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too great for single nowspai>ers, and correspondence will reguin some thing oi its old importance. New spuper associations ornev.s agents v. Ill tssuine the task of furnishing tliu daily dispatches, while correspondents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already tho Tribune has its special correspondents established in almost every capital in £urope. We canno: rival the feats of New York journalism but we must he governed by the same considerations. In view of the intimate rela tions existing between Maine and the British Pro vinces by which she is environed, we ar e happy to announce that “Spurwink's” Canadian Letters Will bo continued. We have also engaged Regular Corre.puu4.ut. ■■ Waakinglen, New York, Button and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at vaiious points throughout the State. Dining the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta every morning, furnishing a synnp- , sis of the previous day’s proceedings. To the people of Maine, and especially to people [ who have business relations with Portland, we hope , to make the Press more valuable than any paper , published outside of the State can possibly be. We shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other : New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we shall | have regular correspondence from that point, and a < Daily Summary of Maine News j which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full and Accurate Market Report*, forwarded by telegraph from al' parts of tlie United States, from Canada, and Irorn England. A weekly Review oi the Portland Markets, and an accurate Report of Maine Shipping* in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Pbess. For EIGHT HOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to fiirnish a paper, The Largest in tlie State, and as large as in other States is offered for ten or twelve dollais a year. -- THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings of the daily edition. It is designed to be as carefully made up as if it were a perfectly inde pendent publication. It contains from week to week, the most important articles which appear in the daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To bo conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, ofAngasta, I a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor lor sometime past to the I Pith.a3 over the signature of “Traxi." Mr. Drew’s special qualifications for this work need no heralding. The Shipping News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Beporls. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currreut alone will be well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and State News, We shall also furnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, ' of sil columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper in Mew England. ' It is offered to the public at the low price of 9 DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent for twenty dollars, and the fame discount is j offered to larger clubs. NOTICKS OF THE PBKSS. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2j inches to the length of Us col umns. Its make-up hat also been changed again, and on the whole It presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “ new clothes” are womewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Dally Press appears this morning in an en large • tor in, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, in his New Year’s Salutatory, show s that the success of the paper for the past year hai been most gratifying, and we aie glad of its prosperiCy. The return to the original style of arranging the contents 01 the paper, Is one of the most agreeable features of the change. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. It is now fully equal in size to any daily paper in New England. In tho arrangement ol reading matter it has returned to the original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has been under the editorial man agement ot Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned aud reliable, wielding a powerful influ- 1 ence over its patrons on all politic 1 matters. He I has taken a (air stand, alwav s discussing topics in a dignified manner, yet leaning in all vital issues with his party. While we cannot always agree with all of his political notions, wc heartily bear witness to the ability, character and culture he has displayed in its management, aud wish him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the next year than il has had in the past. Its news Is judiciously and carefullv selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as it is generally acknowledged in that department he has no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for • ur cotemporary, and wc jiope It will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has Increased if* size eqiffm lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes of the great Are, shows that the principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. The a lditional sp.ee now obtained will be devoted to selections from current literature. [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about the size of the Boston Daily Post and Advertiser wldeh are our largest New England dailies-and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. It shows too, that Portland lias lost nothing ot vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great firo, but tliai its course is still onward—that its business is in fart in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of lust year- and that its promise wt commercial great ness is icruun to bo fulfilled. The Press Is among tlio best ol tho New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect it now gives another settler to ilia question which is * the principal paper in Portland.” It is bound to distance its competitors.

Thi* enlargement—so soon after the Sreat Are—to a size equal with the leading Boston allies, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the oily aud indicates a good degree of enterprise on the part of the proprietors.
