[special dispatch to the daily mess.] State House, Augusta, Jan. 15. SENATE. Papers from the House were duly referred in concurrence. The petition of the Mayor of Lewiston for authority to elect a Superintendent of Schools, was referred. The following acts dually passed the Senate: To increase the capital stock of the Cabot Manufacturing Company; to incorporate the Merchants Exchange Company of Portland; to change the name of the Portland & Machias S:euin oat Company, and increase the capital stock ol the same. io President announced the committee on ilia assumption of municipal war debts, as fol Lws: Messrs.

On motion of Mr. Cushing, of Frankfort, Ordered, That all petitions and papers relat iig to a change in the liquor law, he referred ti a joint select committee of one from each ounty, with such as the Senate may join.— Each county delegation will select its mem er, and the same will be announced to-uior aw.l Mr. Sbcpley, of the Judiciary Committee, (iplained that the proposed change of retr ace of the numerous petitions for alteration <* the liquor law from the Judiciary Coinmit fte to a select committee wafj made after con futation with himself and other members ol he Judiciary Committee. The reference would not be considered disrespectful to the Judicia ry Committee. The session was mostly occupied with routine business of an unimportant character. The storm has been very severe. No mails have arrived from the east since yesterday, or vest since Wednesday. IXXIX 00N&BE°3—SECOND SESSION. Washington, Jan. 18. SENATE. Mr, Sumner introduced a resolution calling 01 tlio President to furnish toe correspondence tetween the Government and Mr. Morley, our minister at Vienna, relative to his reported resignation. Mr. Buckalow objected, and it goes over. Several matters were laid over to reach the District of Columbia business, which was then considered. 1)11110 re£ula*e the tenure of office was cahod up. the question being ou Mr. Sumner’*2 amendment. Mi.&uraner spoke atlength in favor of his «. monument. It is now little more than a year igo since I felt it my duty to characterize a message of the President as white-washing.— That message represented the condition of things on the rebel States as fair and proinis ng, when the prevailing evidence was directly ho other way; of course the message was vmtewashing, and this was a mild term for uch a document, and you do not forget how ertam Senators, horror struck at this plain mss, leaped forward to vindicate the President, .ssterday some of these Senators, horror struck pin, leaped lorward again to the same task, inm has shown that I was right on the former ccasion. If anybody doubts that I w^as right csterday I commend him to time, and ho will lot have to w'ait long. In holding up Andrew Johnson to judgment Ido not allude to his opon exposure of himself of beastial intoxica tion wlulo he was taking the oath of office, nor do I allude to the maudlin speeches by which “©.has disgraced the country as it was never before disgraced, nor do I hearken to any re ports of pardons sold, or of personal corrup tion, but there is other causes wdiich is ample. The President liaa usurped the pow ers of Con gress on a collossal scale, and has employed these Jusurpcd powers in fomenting the rebel spirit and awakened anew the dying fires of rebellion, promising to lie a Moses; be has be come a Pbaroh. Alter speaking of the necessity for a remedy for the present clmdition of the Southern States, Mr. Sumner said: “Not a newspaper or a letter comes from that region that does not give evidence that you are tardy in your Work not a wind blows from that suffering region which is not freighted with voices of distress. Yet you hdsitate.” Mr. buinner then spoke directly on the amendment, advocating its adoption. Mr. Edmunds spoke against the amendment. Mr. Johuson said he regret«ed that Mr. ISuin ner bed alluded in the terms he had. He was sure lie would regret it. The Constitution of the United btates says that a question of this description was to he passed upou by the Sen ate; yet the Senator from Massachusetts had buffered his feelings to lead him astray, and pronounce sentiments to-day which will ren der it improper for him to sit as a judge in the case. Mr. .sumner saul there was no reason why he should not argue auy measure before the Senate, and asked how he was to know that the President was to bo impeached. Mr. Johnson continued: He (Mr. Sumner) knows there is such a proposition before the Hou3e, and in advance puts himself outside the pale of a judge by pronouncing in the face ot tne public that he has judged and condemn ed already. In conclusion, Mr. Johnson spoke m laudatory of the President. Mr. Howe said Mr. Johnson’s speech had committed lnm as much in favor ortho Presi dent as Mr. Sumner's had himself against, in case of an impeachment. Mr. Lane remarked that if it was not out of order, he would now return to the considera- 1 tion ol the hill. [Laughter.J Ho continued j iu advocacy of the measure. Mr. Howe renewed his amendment, which ! was offered and lost a few days ago, to strike { out the exceptions of Cabinet affairs so as to i prevent the removal of such officers without the consent of the Senate. He also stated that a repeat had got abroad that Mr. Cowan was to have the portfolio of Secretary of War. This was subsequently contradicted by Mr. Cowan. Mr. Edmunds offered the following amend ment to Section 7: IteProved d, That the President shall have tlio power to make and deliver alter the adjourn- j inent of the Senate, commissions for all offi- j cere whose appointments shall have been ad- ; vised and consented to by the Senate. The amendment was adopted and the bill ! passed— 29 to 9. Mr. Poland moved to take up the Bankrupt bilk which was agreed to. Before proceeding to its consideration the | Senate went into executive session, and soon i alter adjourned. Several Executive documents were pre sented. The House then proceeded to the considera tion of bills of a private character. The House was eugaged on the private cal endar until 3.15 P. M., when it took a recess 1 until 1 o’clock. EVENING SESSION. The subjects lor discussion were the recon struction and currency hills. Messrs. Warren and Henderson spoke at length, advocating the first named bill. Mr. Clark, of Ohio, spoke on the financial question.—Ad jourued. - - San Francisco, Jan. 18. • Juarez arrived in Durango December 2Ctb, and met with an enthusiastic reception. The next day an army 2,000 stron?, was sent Gen. Auza. and followed the French to the City of Meqico. One thousand French troops fell into an am buscade near San Juan do Los Lagos, losing their arms, ammunition and 260 prisoners. On the staff ol Juarez were eighteen Amer- 1 ican officers who had iatcly arrived from Cali fornia. Corona left Mazatlau before the sailinn of the Suranac, with 3000 men. Ho occupied Guadalajara, and then passed on to intercept the column of French troops bound for San Bias. President Juarez has appointed Gen. Pla cido Vego Governor of the State of Sinaloa.— Cyrona repudiates this action and says Vego i shall not enter the State. His troops are oc- I cupving Sinaloa, and he will be able to carry out bis threat. * : FROM EUROPE IV E IV N n IT THE C A II I* E. _ . . ... Paris, J in. 1G.

THE PRESS For 1807. With tho opening of the now year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the size of the largest Near England Dailies. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to tbo addition of between three and four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted 16 de tails of important events, which wo have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as wo have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its past lii3tory*wiU 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 wrar lias 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 jualdusy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a stao of transition, which seems likely to prove longor than most of us autici pa tod. Tbo Press will insist upon a settlement . which w ill 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. Ot the profound convictions of the Republican party of Maiue, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. TWpresent? year will probably witness the exten sion of the telegraph round the world. The comple tion of tliat great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management ol newspapers. 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 wojM 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 has already destroyed the sys em by which our foreign new s has for years been fiunished by steamer, and already the Tribune has its special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We canno rival the feats o New York journalism but wamust 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, wc are happy to announce that “ Spuiiwij.k’b" Canadian Letters Will be continued. Wo have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington', New York, Boston and Anfcusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout tho Stale. During the session of th© Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta ©very 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 Portlaud, we hope to mako the Pbess more valuable than any paper published outside of tho State can possibly be. Wo shall publish the same telegraphic summary as othor New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we *ba)l have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine Hews which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full and Accurate market Reports, forwarded by tolegraph from al. parts of tho United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review oi the Portlaud Markets, and an accurate Report of JVIninc Shipping, in foreign and domestic porta, will be published as horetotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily rntss. For EIGHT DOLLARS A FEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, Tlio Lai'g;cst in tlie State," and as large as in other States is offered for ten or twelve dollars a year. THE MAINE STATE PKESS Is not like many weeklies, a mero waste basket for the leaving* oi tlio daily edition. It is designed to be as carefully made up as if it were a perfectly indc l»endcut publication. It contains from week to week, tlie most important articles which appear in the daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepaied for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, • To bo conducted by the Rev. WILLIAUX A. DUE W, ©f 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. VFew’s special qualifications for this wsrk need no heralding. The Shipping News of the WeeJt Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets 9 And the Brighton Market Reports. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent aloue will be well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and Stale Neivs, We shall also furnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight largo 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 is offered to larger clubs. -- NOTICES OF THE PRESS. [From the Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We aro glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers as Portland now furnishes we see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.! TnE Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing the enlagoment and re-arrangement of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and with its excellent editorial management, is certainly the leading journal of Maine, and equal to any in Now England; especially when taken Into consideration tho amount of interesting reading matter that is daily furnished lor tho money. [From tlie Gardiner Home Journal.] EiTLAR.iED.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st in91., to about the size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosperity of the Press, but of Portland as well, for of course tho en largement is caused by the increase of advertising favors. Tho Press is worthy of the patronage it re ceives, is a credit to Portland and to the State, and we hope increasing years may increaso its prosper ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2$ inches to the length of Its col umns. Its uiake-up has also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our oo temporary’s “ new clothes” axe somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always tlie best.” [From the 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. The editor, In his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper tor the past year ha* been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to tlie original style of arranging the contents oi the paper, is one of tnc most agreeable features of the change [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about tho size of the Boston Daily Post and Advertiser—which arc our largest New England dailies- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the pan of so food and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying, t shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by tlie great fire, but dial its course is still onward—that its business is in fbc*. in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity ol last year—and that its or commercial great ness is certain to bo fuelled. The Press is among the best of the Now England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] gy* The Portland Press c.-mes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect it now gives another settler to the Juestion 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 from the a hea of the great Ore, shows that the principles it advocates and its efforts to eater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public! Tho a Iditional s|> ce now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections from current literature. [From tho Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] The Press — Among the papers that commence the now year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of 5>rospority, are the Portland Press and tho Hartford evening Press. Tho former is the hugest and best ; daily in the State < f Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. It is now tully equal in size to any j daily paper In New England. In the arrangement ol reading matter it has re turned to the original stvlc, which we think quite an Improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has boon under the editorial man- I agemeut ot hjy. Richardson, Its editorials have been I M«7b fnnod ami reliable, ffiehlin? a lxovoriul inliu- I Ills pttm whllfl wc ctttmbt rflwatii ftjtfc-e wifi *!1 of h!s political notions, we heartily boar witness to the ability, character aud culture he has displayed in its management, and wish him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the next year than it has had iu the pant. Its news is judiciously ami carefully selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good laiuhy newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor s chair there will he no lack of local news, as it is generally acknowledged iu that department he has no equal iu » he Stale. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never bo found uccessaijt to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the bangor Times.] JEEP* The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er tblv 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 lor the prosperity of the city and iuuicates a good degree of euterprize on the part of the proprietors. Tho Press is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as.tho leading paper of the dominant party, is a power in tho laud. [From tho Portland Transcript.] The Daily Press begins the now year much en larged in size; we are glad to see such an evidence of the prosperity of this excellent journal. The Press lias swung around the cimo to another arrangement of its editorial and nows matter; after all, the old second aud third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best.
