Letter from Gcu, G. T, IScg&uregard. rr tw, „ New Orleans, Jan. 11. Wm. II. C. Kmg, Esq. Editor of the New Or leans Times: In your paper of this morning you publish an article from the New York Herald, contain ing some remarks relative to a speech 1 am re ported ft) have made at Canton, Miss., to the Congressional excursionists lately in this city. The Herald is in error. I made no speech at C antou or elsewhere to those exeur; ionists, but conversed with them freely, and openly said that the South had fought the North so desper ately, because it was defending what it conceiv ed to be its constitutional rights; that having appealed to the arbitration of arms it yielded to the decision which was given against it; that I believed the people of the South were now willing to accept the Constitution as made by war, and understood by the Supreme Court of the C nited States. I said also, in my opinion that the questions of secession and slavery were forever.settled, and so far as I was concern ed, under no circumstances would I counte nance any effort to revive them; that we must now direct our energies and our vitality to re pairing the ravages of war, and restoring to our homes some of those comforts and .that prosperity which they formerly enjoyed. answer to questions of some of the excursion i ists,if 1 thought the South would accept the j Constitutional amendment, I replied, | chewing politics and attending strictly to pri i vate business and the duties of my position J had little opportunity, except through news papers, to ascertain public sentiment on the subject, but it they desired to know my indi vidual opinion, 1 would say that the South would not and should not accept those amend ments,even if presented as a finality, for its in terest and manhood forbade if; that we well knew that we were at the mercy of the North, but that the South would never do anything which its honor could not approve, to protect its interests, and I believed would remain pas sive spectators of the struggle going on at the North, relying oa sober second thought and s sense of justice in both parties, to protect us.

With the opening of the now year we present® to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the size of the larges New England Dailies. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalen to the addition of between three and four columns t its size. Tbis additional space will be devoted to de tails of important events, which we have heretofor been obliged to give in brlof, and to selections fron ! current literature, grave or gay, such as we havi lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged wil be, its past history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in this city The Press will continue to defend the principles o; the Liberal party of America. The war has closec one great cycle in our national history—the cycU during which aristocracy at the South and democra cy at the North grew up side by side, a period 01 jealousy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a sta'.o of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antici pated. 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 (he South as well as at the North—equal I rights for all secured by equal laws, freedom of 1 speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Of • the profound convictions of the Republican party of Maine, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. The present year will probably witness the exten sion of the telegraph round the world. The comple j tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, | which has already begun, in the management of news-papers. The leading features of the world's 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 newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ot its old importance. Newspaj>er associations or news agents will assume the task of furnishing the daily dispatches, while correspondents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph ha9 already destroyed the sysiem by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by Bteamer, and already tbo Tribune has j its special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We canno. rival the feats of New York journalism but we must be governed by the same considerations. In view of the intimate rela tions existing between Maine and the British Pro vinces by which 9he is environed, we are happy to announce that “ Spurwink’s” Canadinn T .Aft Will be continued. We have also engaged Uvular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Boston and Angusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the State. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta every morning, furnishing a synop sis of tho previous day’s proceedings. To the people of Maine, and especially to people who have business relations with Portland, we hope to make tho 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 hhall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Fall and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review ot 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 FR1CE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, The Largest in the State, and as large as in other States is offered for ten or twelve dollars a year. --- THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings oi 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 be conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. BREW, of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor ior some time past to the Press 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 Re2*oris. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent alone will be weU worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful — Digest of General and Stale 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 six columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper in New 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 same discount h offered to larger clubs. NOTICES OF THE PRESS. [From the Eosteru Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2£ inches to the length of its col umns. Its make-up has also been changed again aud on the whole It presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “ new clothes” art somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest urenoi always the best,” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1J The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large i form, making it now fully equal In size to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, it his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success oi the paper for the past year has been most gratifying and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents oi the paper is one of tuc most agreeable features of the change. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in ar enlarged form. It >» now fully equal in size to an\ daily paper in New England. In the arrangemeui ol reading matter it has returned to the original stylo 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 beer high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all political matters. Ht has taken a lair stand, alwa.s discussing topics inn dignified manner, yet leaning in all vitai issues witl bis party. While we cannot always agree with all oi his political notions, we heartily bear witness to th< ability, character aud culture he has displayed in it* management, and wish him and the proprietors evei more prosperity in the next year than it has had ix the past. Its news is judiciously and carefully selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes ifc contents. As a good fbmily newspapor 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, ai least for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will nevci be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of thii enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] 'Hie Portland Press has increased its size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. Thti enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes of the great file, shows that the principles it advocates aud its efforts to cater to th< literary tastes of Its readers are appreciated by the pubiic. The aldithmal ,p,ce uow obtXed will b! devoted to selections irom current literature.
