Flintier Particular* of the Faxon Swin dle—The National Steamship Company —A New Gold l&ooin—Arrest of Incen diaries. Boston, Jan. 17. Noot, the Jew who secured confidence and money of Faxon by tbe loan dodge, is suppos ed to be secreted in this country somewhere instead of having gone to Europe with his stealings as reported, It has transpired that he succeeded in petting loans from Air. Faxon , to the amount ot over $300,000, instead of $130, 000 as previously reported.

With the opening of the new year we p: ejected to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the size of the largest New England Dallies. 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 Republicau i»ar ty of Maine. It was impossible lor the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in this city. The Pruss 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 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 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 newt*p^>ers. The leading features of the world’s history will be registered from <lay to day by the tel egraph. The expense of t 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 dgents will assume the task of furnishing the dally dispatches, while correspondents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mail. Tii* Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already ttie Tribune has its special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We canno: rival the feats o 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 liappy to announce that “ SpubwimUs” Canadian Letters Will bo continued. Wo have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Boston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout tho Stale. 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 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 tball have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine Slews which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al parts of the United States, from Canada, and trom 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 PRICE Of the Daily Press. For BICHT DOLLARS A f BAR ! We expect to fiirnisb a paper, The Largest in the State, and as large as in other States is offered for ten or twelve dollars a yoar. ---- THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a more 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 be conducted by the Ber. WILLIAM A. BREW, of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor lor some time past to the Press over the signature of “Traxi.” Mr. Drew’s special qualifications for this wsrk need no heralding. The Shipping News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Revieiv of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Bettor is. 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 the Iiargrst Weekly Paper In New England. It is offered to the public at the low price of 2 DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent lor twenty dollars, and the same discount is offered to larger clubs. NOTICES OF TIIE PRESS* [From the Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We arc glad to sec such evidence of prosjwrity. With such Dapcrs as Portland now furnishes we see no need4k importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] Tiie Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing tho enlagcment and re-arrangement of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and witn its excellent editorial management, is certainly the leading journal of Maine, and equal to any in New England; especially when taken into consideration the amount of interesting reading matter that is daily furnished for the money. [From the Qardiner Home Journal.] Enlarged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about the size of the Bo*ton Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosperity of the 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 ami to the State, and we hope increasing years may increase its prosper ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appearod yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2$ inches to the length of its col umns. Its make-up has also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “ new clothes” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [A ivui wo i utoiiiii^ otar, uan. i.j The Daily Pros appear t* this morning In an en large term, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper in Sew England. The editor, In his New Year’.- Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper for the past year ha. been most gratiiying, aud we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents ol the paper, is oue of tuc most agreeable features of the change. [From tho Bangor Whig.) — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about the sizo of tho Boston Dady 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 gratilVing. It shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great lire, hut that its course is still onward—-that its business is in la“t in creasing, notwithstanding tbc apparent calamity ot last year—and that its promise ol commercial great ness is certain to be fullilled. The Press is among the bcst*>f the >iew England papers, aud its present appearance is a credit to the btate. [From the Bath Times.) • ST#"’ 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 am addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion fyom the ashes of the great Are, shows that the principles, it advocates and its etibrt* to cater to the literary tastes ofJta readers are appreciated by the public. The a Idlttonal sp ec now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and se'ections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.) The Pbbss.—Among the lepers that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and best daily in the State < t Maine, and the latter we have lon^ regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut [From the PertlandAdverliaer, Jan. 2.) The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. It is now fully equal in size to any ^ «Klnoo1!.0!,®n8lanr1' In the arrangement i 138 returned to the original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. 1 Since the Press has been under the editorial man SfS^-Sf If8 editorials have been high toned aud reliable, welding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all politic 1 matters. He has token a iwr stand, always discussing topics In a dignified mau&ui, yet leaning In all vital luuea with hie party. While we cannot always agree with all ol hie political notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character anti culture he has displayed In its management, and wiah him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the next year thanll has had in the past. Its news is Judiciously and carcfhllv selected, and a general culture end literary tasie characterizes its contents. As a good Mindly newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s clunr there will he no lack ol local news, as it Is generally acknowledged in that deportment he has no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least tor ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never be found necessarS to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and Vespectable sheot. [From the ltangor Times.) r ST* The Portland Daily Press comes to ns consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ make-up.” This enlargement—so soon after 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 entesprize on the part of the proprietors. The Press is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as the leading paper of the dominant party, is a power in tho land. [From the Portland Transcript) Tee Daily Press begins the new year much en larged In size; we are glad to see such an evidence of the prosperity of this excellent journal. The Press has swung around the circle to another arrangement of its editorial and news matter; after all, the old second and third- page arrangement, presenting edi torials and nows together was the best.
