SAKAH X. ELDER. Portland, January 16,1867, 4faw3w j prospectus. j _ THE PRESS For 1867. With the opening of the new year wo presented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the aizc of the largest New England Dailies* Tho enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of between tluee and four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to da tails of imi*oriant events, winch we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as wc 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. Tho war has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle during wliicli aristocracy at tho 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 tho democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a state of transition, width seems likely to prove longer than most of us antici 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 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 pre.-s, 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. Tho 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 special dispatches from all , parts of tho world will prove too great for singlo newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ot its old importance. Newspa]>er associations or news ayents 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 system by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already tbe Tribune has its special correspondent ^ established in almost every capital in Europe. We cannot 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 arc happy to announce that “ Spuriunk's” Canadian Letters Will be continued. We have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New Vori&, Koston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout tlic 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, wo hope to make the Press more valuable than any paper published outside of the State can possibly Vie. 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 point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Fall and Accurate Market Report*, 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 bcretolore. There will lie • NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGIIT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, Tlie Largest in tlie 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 ot th© 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 lie conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. ORE W, of Augnftta, 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 Metes of the Weet: Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Drigliion 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 Neivs, Wc shall also furnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Eaadiug for the Family. Tlie weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is the Large** Weekly Paper in New England. It is offered to the public at tlie low price of *1 DOLLARS A YEAR, INVARIABLY IN ADVANCE. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent for twenty dollarsj and tbc same discount is offered to larger clubs. NOTICES OF THE PRESS. [From the Christian Mirror.] Tiie Press has been enlarged since Now Year's. We are glad to soo such evidence of prosperity. With such iwpers as Portland now furnishes wo see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Cijrrcnt.] -The PrEss.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing the enlagcment 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 iu New England; especially when taken into consideration the amount of interesting reading matter that is daily furnished for the inoney. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.] Enlarged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the ist inst., to about the size of tlie Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosperity of the • Prfcss, 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 tlie State, and we hope increasing years may increase its prosper ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged l»v the addition of iH incites to the length of its col umns. Its make-up lias also been changed again, and on the whole it presumed a decidedly improved appearance. Our eolemporary’s “new clothes” are : oinewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest arc not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large < Kirin, making it now folly equal in size to any tlauv newspaper, in-New England. The editor, in his New Year's Salutatory, shows that tlic success of the paper for the past year has been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original stylo of arr;mgiug the contents ol the paper, is one of Aue most agreeable features of the change. IFrmr. the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about the size of the Boston Daily Post and Ad ver riser—w hich are our largest New England dailies- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence 0f protjierity on tlvc part of so good ari l reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. 1l shows, too, that Poriland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great fire, but that its 1 course is si ill onward—that its business is in fact In creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of last year—and tliat its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be fuliillcd. Tlic Press is among the best of the New England papers, and its present apj»earance is a credit to tho State. [From the Bath Ximes.] * iy* Tlic Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspeet.it now gives another settler to the question which is “ the principal paper in Portland.” ft is bound to distance its competitors. [From the Lewiston Journal; Jan. 1.] The Portland Pres** has increasedrits size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec lion from the allies of the great fire, show9 that the principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the lUev:uy tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. Itie a lditioual sp ;ce now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] The Fhess.—Among the papers that commence the new year with nniarged sheets In. I manifest signs of prosperity, arc the Portland Press and the Hartford ».Vi!Jnm . The former Is the hugest and best (huly in tho State of Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut cxchauges. [From tlic Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] J,i.C.IV\l,y ^r€*s appeared yesterday morning In an enlarged form, it is now fully equal in size to any daily paper m New England. Ju the arrangement 01 reading matter it has returned to the original style, winch we think quite an improvement in its appear Sincc the Press has been under the editorial man agement ot Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned aud reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its pations on all political matters. He has taken a lair stand, always discussing topics in a dignified manner, yet leaning in all vital luanei with hie party. While we cannot alwaya agree with all of his political notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character aud culture he has displayed In its management, anil wish him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the neat year than it has had in the past. its newt is judiciously and carefhtly selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good Ihmily 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 in that department he has no equal in the .State. The enlargement argue* a prosperous business, at kgst for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never ■Mound ncccssai# to curtail the dimensions of tide enterprisingandrespectablc sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er iblv enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ make-up.” This enlargement—so soon alter the Sreat fare—to a size equal with the leading Boston allies, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degreo of cuterprize on the PJ'fJ'O* proprietors. The Bicss is edited with ability, lias able contributors, and as the leading paper ut the dominant party, i* a power in the land. [From the Portland Transcript.] The 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 lias swung around the circle to anotlier arrangement of its editorial and news matter; after all/tlie old second aud third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best. till NOTICES* Snow to be Removed from Foot way or Sidewalk.
