With the opening of the now year we pieaented to the reader* of the DAILY- PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the size of the largest New England l>ailit». The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of between three and four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails of important events, which we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such os wo have lately beeu obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enLirged will 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 tho State to remain voiceless in this city. The Pbi:ss will continue to defend the principles of the Liberal party of America. The war has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle duriug which aristocracy at the South and democra cy at the North grew up side by side, a period of jealousy and conflict, resulting in on appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a state of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us andci paled. 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. tho South as well as at the North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, freedom of 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 tho world. The comple tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management of newspapers. The leading features of the world’s history will be registered from day to day by the tel egraph. The expense of * pedal dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ot its old importance. Newspaper 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 lias already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already the Tribune has its spocial 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 she is environed, we are happy to announce that “.Spubwiml’b” --t Will be continued. We have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Roston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stato. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta every morning, furnishing a synop sis of the previous day’s proceedings. To the people of Maine, and especially to people who have businees relations with Portland, we hope to make the Press more valuable Ibati 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 poiut, and a Dolly Summary of Maiue 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 Skipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretolore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE BRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to ftirnish a paper, Tli© Largest in tli© State, and as large a9 in other States is offered for ten or twelve dollars a year. .r. — --- THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings ot 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 Agrtcullural Department, To bo conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, af Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor lor sometime 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 Reporis. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent alone will be well worth tbe subscrip tion price. *fn addition to a careftil 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 Weakly Paper in New England. It is offered to the public at the low price of » DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent for twenty dollars, and the same discount it offered to larger clubs. --- NOTICES OF THE PRESS. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2£ inches to llie 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 are uol always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Dally Press appears this morning In an en large * form, making it now fully equal in size to an> dally newspaiier in New England. The editor, ii his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success 01 the paper for the past year has been most gratifying and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to tin origiual style of arranging the contents ol 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 ai enlarged form. 1-t is now fully equal in size to an3 daily paper in New England. In the airangemeui 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 ageincnt ot Mr. Kichardson, Its editorials have beei high toned aud reliable, wielding a powerful influ encc over its patrons on all politic 1 matters. Hi has taken a lair stand, always discussing topics in 1 dignified manner, yet leaning in all vitai issues witl Ills party. While we cannot always agree w ith all o his political notions, we heartily bear witness to thi ability, character aud culture he has displayed in iti management, aud wish him and the proprietors evei more prosperity in the next year than it has had U the past. Its news is judiciously and carefully selected, am a general culture and literary taste characterizes it contents. As a good family newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed 1 tor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as i is generally acknowledged in that department he ha: no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, a least for * ur cotemporary, and we hope It will neve: be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of thi: enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has Increased it* size equiva lent to an addition of three 01 lour columns. Tliii enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the allies of the great fire, shows that tin luinciples it advocates and its efforts to cater to tin literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by tin public. Tho additional sp .ee now obtained will b< devoted to selections from current literature. [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st 0 January to about the size of the Boston Daily Pos and Advertiser—which are our largest New Euglam dailies- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of si food and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying t shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor enterprise or resource, by the great tire, but that iti course is still onward—that Its business is in fact in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity o last year—and lliat its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Press is amon( the best of the New England papers, aud its presen appearance is a credit to tho State. [From Ihe Bath Times.] S5f~ The Portland Press comes out greatly eniarg ed, and we suspect It now gives another settlor to tlu Question which is *‘the principal paper in Portland.* t is bound to distance its competitor*. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] The rRE«8.— Among the papers that commence tin now year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs o prosperity, arc the Portland Press and the Hartfori E vein impress. Tlic former is the lai gest and bes daily fn the State of Maine, ami the hitter wc havi long regarded as ono of the ablest of our Connoctlcu exchanges. [From the Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style o make-up.* This enlargement—so soon after thi nt lire—to a size equal with the leading Bostoi «s, speaks favorably for the prosperity of tin city and indicates a good degree of outerprlze on thi port of the proprietors. Tno Press is edited witl ability, has able contributors, and as the leadinj paper of the dominant party, is a power in the land. WANTED. Help Wanted.
