LATEST NEWS BY TELEGRAPH TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. Thursday Morning, January 17,1867. LEGISLATURE OF MAINE. [special dispatch to the daily press.] State House, Augusta, Jan. 16. senate. Several petitions and orders from the House were referred in concurrence. Petition of town of Hartford, for authority to assess on said town a sum not exceeding one thousand dollars, for the purpose of extending the Portland & Oxford Central Railroad; pe tition of the Maine Central Railroad Company for an act authorizing said company to extend their road from Ilanville Junction to Portland, were referred to the Committee on Railroads. Mr. Hobson, of Lincoln, presented a bill, an act to authorize the consolidation of railroad companies iu this State. Mr. Hersey, of Penobscot, presented the fol lowing bills: An act iu aid of constructing thr European and North American Railroad Company. Also an act to authorize the Port land, Saco and Portsmouth Railroad Company to aid in construction of European and North American Railroad, which were referred. The joint select committee on increase ot the Governor’s salary, reported an act to increase the same to twenty-five hundred dollars a year. On motiou of Mr. Crosby, Ordered, That the Committee on the Judiei ary be directed to enquire into tho expediency of repealing the law which prohibits the mar riage between a white person and negro, Indi an and mulatto. The committee on bills in second reading re ported an act to ratify the Amendment of the Constitution of tho United States. The Constitutional Amendments wore taken up at eleven o’clock A. M., and were spoken to for an hour and a half, Messrs. Boynton, of Somerset, Woodman, of Cumberland, Crosby, of l’enobscot, Caldwell, of Hancock, and Por ter, of Penobscot, all taking radical grounds favoring their adoption, hut characterizing them as not up to the present State of feeling of the people of Maine. Gen. Boynton spoke at length in behalf of the soldiers of Maine.— Those resolutions were not what they fought for. He did not consider it necessary that the rebel States should ratify the amendments be fore they became a part of the Constitution. Mr. Woodman, of Cumberland, cordially en dorsed most of its provisions, hut wanted more. The act defined who are citizens of the United States, and of the several States. It provides for their protection. There has been much dis cussion on this. It is important that it be set tled aright. It provides that cerlain leaders are to be ineligible to Congress or high offices’ civil or military who, having taken oath to sup port the Constitution, afterwards violated it by engaging in the rebellion. This is right; let the South raise up young men who will be true to the Union to take their places. It provides for the payment of the public debt incurred to put down the rebellion, and for the repudiation of the rebel debt; this is right. It docs not come up iu the matter of suffrage to justice and equality, but is a step in the right direc tion. We must ratify it to keep our taith. If rejected by the South, we are free to claim moro striugent amendments. These amend ments have met with little favor at the South, and will not probably he ratified by them. If not, all the better for the country. It was the best proposition that Congress could got through at the time. Congress would not pass it now. Thero is a great change in the politi cal atmosphere since these amendments were proposed. We live in an age of progress. The Chief Executive and the two branches did not agree upon this proposition. It passed over the President’s objections. This act of Con gress has been before the people, and sustain ed. State elections have settled the question that no one man, nor set of men, or Assembly or Legislature, can control or destroy tho nation. On the failure of the acceptance of these amendments by the South, Congress will make another, embracing universal suffrage. This is a question which must lie met. The sooner the better. It we are to make conditions of education, or property, or anything else, make the conditions universal without distinction.— The poor whites of the South, many of them can neither read nor write, and are as degrad ed as the negroes. The negroes will he safe depositories of equal rights. The clement pre dominates with them. The prospects of the country are bright. The hand writing is upon the wall that this nation is to be the purest noblest and happiest nation on the earth. We may have to pass through great difficulties yet, but the spirit of the people will rise with the demand. . Mr. Crosby took up the amendments, and re viewed and commented upon them in order.— He was in favor of absolute civil, political and social equality, and lor abolishing from our statutes all distinction of color even in the matter of intermarriages. A dirty, ill-mannered white man is no better than a black one distinguished in the same way. Mr. Caldwell was in favor of the Constitu tional Amendment, but not greatly in favor of these, tor these fell short of exciting the enthu siasm which was occasioned by the Constitu tional Amendment abolishing slavery. Mr. Porter stated his own views, which were in harmony with the other speakers; and in his motion the question was token by yeas and nays as follows: Yeas 29, nays none. Two Senators were absent who can record their votes on their return. Mr. Boynton laid on the table tho following resolve, with a preamble expressive of the views of the loyal people of Maine, respecting reconstruction of the late rebellious States: Retained, That ihose States should not be re-organized under the authority of the LT. S. Congress except through the action of the loyal people of those States, under organic laws that fully guarantee and secure the full benefit of these great principles to all the peo ple thereof, and withhold political power from traitors therein, before it is proper to re-admil these States to representation in the general government of the United States.

According to a letter irom Captain Cloes, i: command at Charleston, S. C., it appears tha the burning to death of the 22 colored person in the jail at Kingston, 8 0., was caused by th barbarous obstinacy of tlic sheriff and jgilo who relused to unlock the doors audlettli poor creatures out.

As usual a largo number of petitions and memorials were presented, 'favoring amend ments to the tarift hill, protesting against the curtailment of the currency, and other purpo ses, all of which were approuriately referred.

The bill to admit Nebraska was taken up the question being on the amendment of the Hons., that the act of admission shall take effect only on the fundamental condition that the Legisla turo of the 8tote shall agree to the abolition of all distinctions on account of color. Debate ensued. Mr. Henderson ottered a substitute which was disagreed to. The House amendment was then concurred u, 28 to 14. The bill to admit Colorado was then taken up, and the House amendment, which is simi lar to that put upon the Nebraska bill, was adopted, 27 to 12, so the bill goes to the Presi dent. Mr. Morrill reported the bill to protect the rights of married women, &c., ill the District of Columbia, with an amendment substituting a n. w bill.

Deferred to the Committee on Post Oftices. Mr. Grimes introduced a hill to amend cer tain acts ill relation to the navy, providing that the Admiral shall be the ran kiug officer.

A similar class of persons who have served ten years shall also be aided trom the same fund. Another section causes the commandant of the marine corps to rank av a Brigadier General of the army. De ferred to the Committee on Naval Affairs. Mr. Howard moved that the Senate take up the resolution offered by him yesterday, in structing the Committee on Foreign Affairs to make certaiu enquiries regarding Mexican M. Williams faroreil the regular order of business, which was the bill to regulate the tenure of office. Mr. Sumner believed the enquiry unneces ary, as it was evident the French troops were fast leaving Mexico. He had official and unofficial confirmation of that fact Mr. Howard’s motion was disagreed to. Mr. Fessenden gave notice that he would defer calling up the tariff bill -to next Mon day. The bill regulating the tenure of office was then taken Up, tho question being upon Mr. Sumner's amendment as an additional sec tion, that officers and agents of the Govern ment, except Department clerks whose sala ries exceed one thousand dollars per annum, shall be appointed by the President, by and with the adveie and consent or the Senate, in stead of as at present by the many heads of Departments alone. Mr. Cowan said the whole number of offices in the gift of the President was two thousand four hundred and thirty-four, and the whole number of removals during the year was four hundred and forty-six. AH the removals he knew to have been made by the President, were of men who had no respect, not only for the Chief Magistrate, but for the country, and, he misfit say, for themselves. There was a great deal of improper and disrespectful lan guage used towards the President in the last campaign. No man was removed who hail re frained from indulgence in this language.— There were three hundred and forty appoint ments in the State Department, and ten re movals; in the Treasury Department niuehun | died and seventy-three appointments and one j hundred and ninety-seven changes; in the In terior Department two hundred and ton ap ! pointments and twenty-one changes, and in ! the Attorney General’s office two hundred and | two appointments and nineteen changes. Out of four hundred and forty-six appointments I made by the President, three hundred and fifty seven had been sentto the Senate, and five had ' been acted upon. Mr. Sumner said if what Mr. Cowan had said was correct, he must have been treated excep tionally by the President, for in his State he could not think of a single prominent officer of the Government who bad not been removed for political purposes. Circulars had been sent around ordering them to attend the Philadel phia Johnson convention. In many cases re movals and appointments were made upon the recommendation of Democratic candidates for Congress. Men had been removed for refusing to contribute money to carry on the Democrat ic canvass. He knew one who had been ap pointed to an important post office who was the editor of a Democratic paper, and who had been arrested and imprisoned during the war for disloyalty. Throughout the entire State of Ohio Federal officers were compelled to sup | port the opposition to the Republican party or be removed. He did not know how it was in other States, but if the proportion of removals elsewhere was as great as it had beon|tlicre, the aggregate must be greater than Mr. Cowan stated. Mr. Henderson referred to the recently pub ! fished letter of the Secretary of the Navy in i relation to the Norfolk navy yard, and appoint ments to that place, and advocated the auiend | meut of Mr. Sumner. At 4.45 P. M. the Senate adjourned. HOUSE. Mr. Spalding asked leave to introduce a res olution instructing the Judiciary Committee | to give an opinion whether the Constitutional Amendment to be valid should require tho ; sanction of three-fourths of the thirty-six j States, but objection was made. % On motion, the Committee on Naval Affairs j was directed to enquire into tho expediency of having Commander Aaron II. Hughes appoint* I ed to the active list of the Navy. The Seeretaryot the Treasury was directed , to furnish the House with information in re | gard to the disposal of United States bonds. The bill to incorporate the National Life In I surance Company of the District came up i amended, and laid on the table. ; Business relative to the District engrossed | the time up to the expiration of the morning ; hour, when the House took up Mr. Stevens’ I bill for the reconstruction of the late rebel < States. Mr. Paine spoke against the second sec , tion, and was followed by Mr. Brigham, who • opposed it.

Sedgwick in taking possession of Mata luoras, and holding it for a few hours. I have to iuform you in reply that the proceeding of General Sedgwick was not only without au thority from this Government, but is under stood by this Department to have been in vio lation of the orders of his military superiors; that as soon as it came to their knowledge, the proceeding was disallowed and countermand ed ; that Gen. Sedgwick was thereupon sus pended from command, and subjected to disci pline. 1 am unable to write with precision upon the subject, lor want of full information, but I think there is sufficient ground for be lieving that Gen. Sedgwick’s error was com mitted under pressing importunities from per sons residing in Matamoras, amenable to the Government of Mexico, and that liis indis creet proceeding was regarded by him as favor able to that Government, instead of being in jurious to it, or likely to give offence. I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to you my assurances of highest consideration, Wm. H. Seward. ’ To benor Don Matias Romero, &c., &c. --- WASHINGTON OOEBESPONDENCE. NAPOLEON AND MEXICO.

The House Post Office Committee are of the opinion that the construction of telegraph lines along post routes, to be under the control of the Postmaster General, is not only practica ble, but can be made serviceable and useful in connection with the postal service.

With the oponlng of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the size of the largest New England Dailies. 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 as we have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged 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 the State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press 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 during which aristocracy at the South and democra 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 state of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antici 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 the 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 the world. The comple tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management ot newspapers. The leading features of the world's history will be registered from day tq 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. 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 tbe Tribune has its special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We canno: rival the feats o New York journalism but we must l>e 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, wo are happy to announce that “ Spubwink's” Canadian Letters Will be continued. Wo have also engaged Regular CerrMpmadents in Washington, New York, .Boston and AUfeusta, 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 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 tho 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 ihall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which reader* here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Fall and Accurate Market Report*, forwarded by telegraph from al part* of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review oi the Portland Markets, and an accurate Report of Mniae Skipping. In foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For_ EIGHT HOLLARS A TEAR ! 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 ol 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, of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor for 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 Pres9, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Reports. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent alone will be well 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 tlic LargcM Weekly Paper in New England. It is offered to Hie 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 is offered to larger clubs. ---— I'll i ims or T111E rKENSi (From tlic Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since Now Year’s. We are glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers as Portland now tarnishes wo see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticiug the enlagcment and re-arrangement of tlic columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and with its excellent editorial management, is certainly the leading.journal of Maine, anil equal to any in Now England; especially when taken into consideration the amount of interesting reading matter that is daily furnished for tho money. [From tho Gardiner Home Jonrnal.] Enlarged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about tbe size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only tlie prosperity of tho Press, but of Portland as well, for of course the en largement is caused by the increase of advertising favors. The Press is worthy of the patronage it re ceives, is a credit to Portland and to the State, and we hope Increasing years may increase its prosper ity. [From <he Easleru Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by tbe addition of 2j inches to the length of its col umns. Its make-up has also been changed again, and on the wbole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “ new dot lies’’ are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the beat.” [From tbe Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large form, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper in New England. Tbe editor, hi his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper ibr the past year ha« been most gratifying, anil we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original stylo of arranging the contents 01 the paper, Is one of the moat agreeable features ot the change. [From the Bangor Whig.] — Tho Portland Press was enlarged on tlic 1st of January to about the size of the Boston Daily Post and Advertiser—which 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 show’s, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, ’ enterprise or resource, by Die groat lire, but that Its course is still onward—that its business is in thoi In creasing, notwithstanding tbe apparent calamity oi last year—and that Its promise of commercial great* ness is certain to be fh'UUed. The Press is among the best of tbe New England papers, and Its present appearance is a credit to the State. 0 [From the Bath Times.] S3F* The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect It now gives another settler to the ?uestion which Is -‘the principal paper in Portland.” t is bound to distance its competitors. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has increased its size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon Its resurrec tion irom the ashes of the great fire, allows that the principles It advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by tho public, Tbe a iditional sp .ee now obtained will be devoted to Selections from current literature, [From tlic Worcester (Mass,,) Spy.] The Press.—Among the papers that commence the new year with enlarge. 1 sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and tho Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and best daily in tlic stale of Maine, and tlie latter wo have c»c£an*an**d *® ono 01 “West of our Connecticut [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] /V<’S.® appeared yesterday morning In an enlarged form. It is now tally equal in size to any daily paper in New England. In the arrangement ol reading matter it lias returned to tlie original style, winch we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since tbe Press has been nnder the editorial man agement ot Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned aud reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all politic 1 matters. He has taken a lair stand, alwa\s discussing topics in a dignified manner, yet leaning in all vita* issues with bis party. While we cannot always agree with all of his polincsl notions, we heartily WwiTnls to thi ability, character and culture he has displayed % management, and wish him and the proprietors evUS moMpdwperity in the next year than It has had in Its news is judiciously and careAiUy selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good thmily newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor** chair there will be no lack of local news, as it Ih generally acknowledged in that department he has no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for • ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never be found nccessaiff to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising andrespectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er ably enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ make-up. This enlargement—so soon alter the great tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprize on the part ot the proprietors. The Press is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as the leading paper ot the dominant oart.v in a miuror in iho latnl. [Fr»m the Portland Transcript.] THE Daily Press begins the new year much en* larged in size; we arc glad to see such an evidence ol the prosperity of this excellent journal The Press has swung around the circle to another arrangement of Its .editorial end news matter; after allTiheold second and third page arrangement, pres Mine wM. torials and news together was the best. ^ CITY NOTICES.
