SA RAH S. ELDER. Portland, January 16,1867. dlawSw | PROSPECTUS. | t he'Fress IToi* 18(;7. With the opening of the new year wepieseiiled to llie leaders of the 3JVULY IMHIHS, A Paper Blulm-ged to the hvi.v of llie liargc*! New flugininl IBailiet*. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to tlio addition of between three and four columns to its size. This additional space w ill be devoted (o 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 wo have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of t he paper thus enlarged will l»e, its past history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent, the Itcpuhlicun par ty of Maine. It was impossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voh« less in this city. The Press will continue io defend th 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 ot jealousy and eonllict, resulting in an appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a slate or transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us anlici 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 d« moeracy at, the South ms well as at the North—equal rights lor :ill secured by equal laws, ftoedom ol speech, freedom of Mm press, impartial suffrage. Ol the profound convictions of (he Kepublii-an party of Maine, the Press w ill 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 ol newspapers. The leading inatures of tire world’s history will he registered from day ro day by the tel egraph. The expense of rpe -ial dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too gre it for single newspapers, aiul correspondence will regain some thing oi its old importance. Newspaper associations Or news agents will assume the task of furnishing the daily dispatches, while correspondents will fur nish details, explanations ami illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic fplegrayih has already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has (br yoars been furnished by steamer, and air. ady the Tribune has its special correspond, nls established in almost every capital in Europe. We earnin' rh al the feats o New York journalism but we must bo governed by the same considerations. In view of llie intonate rela tions existing between Maine and the British Pro vinces by which she Is environed, we are liappy to announce that “Spurwims's** Canadian Letters Will !>.• continued. We have also engaged Regular Correspondent* Sn Washington, New York, IS o* ton nmi AngiiMtn, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Slate. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special I>i*patel»esi 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, wc hope to make the Press more valuable than any paper published oOl side of the State can possibly be. Wc shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we tdioH have regular correspondence from tlmt point, and a Daily Summitry ol" Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full mail Affiliate Market Report*, forwarded by telcgmpli from al parts of the United States, from Canada, ami trom England. A weekly Review of the Portland markets, and an accurate Report of Maine Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretolore. There will lie NO INCREASE IX THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For FIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR! We expect to furnish a paper, Tlie Largest in tlie State, and as large as in other States is offered for tenor twelve dollars a year. • ---— THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is Hot like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings of the daily edition. II is designed to l»c as carefully made up as if il were a perfectly inde pendent. publication.

[From the Christian Mirror. 1 The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We are glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With Kindi papers as Portland now furnishes we see no need of importing Dailies from LosUm and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Pm:ss.—'Tlie crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing the enl igcmcnt and rc-arraiijgcincnt of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and with its excellent editorial management, is certainly tin leading journal of Maim-, and equal to any in'New Jhigland; cspcs jally when taken into consideration the amouiU of interesting reading matter that is daily furnished lor the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.] JfitfEAB'iED.— The Portland Press was enlarged on tlio ist inst., to aboiU the size ofthy. Bosp.n Dailies. i 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 civil it to Portland and to the State, and wo hope increasing years may increase its promier ily. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 21 inches to the length of its col umns. Its make-up has also boeu changed again, and oti tlie whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance, Our rotemporary's “new clothes” are soniew bat. larger than’ oafs, but. tlie “ biggest are not always the-best.” (From tlio Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears iJiiv morning in an en large * Inrm, making it now fully equal In size to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, in bis Now Year’s Salutatory, shows that, the success of I he paper lor the past year has been most, gratifying, and wo are glad of its prosperity. The retain to the original style of arranging the contents ot the pupt r, is one oi tuc most agreeable features of the change. [From the Bangor Whig.] — Tlie Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about the size of the Boston Daily Post, and Advertiser—which arc our largest New England dadies- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. 'Aliiw 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 the great lire, but that its course is still onward—that Its business is in fact in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity ot last year—and that its promise ol commercial great ness is certain to be fullilled. Tlie Press is among the best ot the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [Fr in the Bath Times.] tF"fhe Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect it now gives another settler to the question which is “the principal paper in Portland.” It is bound to distance its competitors. I From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] 'Ilir> Portland Press lias Increased its si7,e equiva lent to an addition ot' three or lour columns. This enlargement, following so clorely upon its resurree- ! tiou lti>m the a-lies ot* the great tire, shows that the principles it advocates and its dibits to eater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the Itnidic. The a iditional sp ee now obtained will lie devoted to details of inqiortaiit events, and se'ections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.) Tnn Piik-h—Among the papers that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, art the Portland Press and the Hartford levelling Press. The tbiiner is the hugest an l ltest dady iii the State of Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From the Portland Adf^Hiser, Jan. 2.1 'Hie Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. Ii >s now fully equal in size to any diuly Paper in New England. In the arrangement wl,r":Fn" d. has returned to the original style, ! whielrwe think quite an Improvement in its appear | anco. Since the Press has lieen under the editorial man agement ot Mj\ Kkdiardson, its editorials have been I high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful infiu • ©®c® over its patrons ou all political matters. He I iuis taken a fair stand, always discussing topics in a dignified manner, yet leaning In all vital issues with liis party. While we cannot always agree with all ot his political notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character and culture he has displayed in itH management, and wish him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the next year than it has had iu the past. It. news is judiciously and carefully selected, and I a general culture ami literary taste char:icterizes its I contents. As a good iamiiy newspaper it has no su perior; ami while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, us it is generally acknowledged in that department he ha* no equal iii the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporury, and we hope it will never be t<»uud neccssaiflt to curtail the dimensions ot this enterprising and respectable sheet. I From the Bangor Times.] CP The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ make-up.” This enlargement—so soon after the greal lire —to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, MN-.ifs favoraiily i;,r the pro fierity of the city and indicates a good degree of enter prize on the partol the proprietors.. The Press is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as the leading paper of the dominant party, u a power in the land. [From the Portland Transcript.] The Daily Peeks begins the ndw year much eu 1 argot I in size; we are glad to see hu.Ii an evidence ot the prosperity of this excellent journal, 'file Press has swung around I he circle to another arrangement ol its editorial and news matter; after all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best.
