With the opening of the new jcir wc p ewnteil 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 ami 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 die character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its past history will show. The Press w as es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was im(>ossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press will continue to defend die principles of the Liberal j»arty of America. Tho 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 apical 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 pated. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the liuits of our victory. Nothing is settled till it is settled light. We must have de mocracy at tho South as well as at die North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Ot the profound convictions of the Bcpubliean party ot Maine, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. The present year will probably witness the exten sion oi 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 lea*ling features of the world’s history will be registered fr om duy to day by the tel egraph. The expense of tpccial dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and 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 and illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our fbreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, aad already the Tribune has Its special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe* *We ^uinot 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 happy to announce that “ Spurwink’s” Canadian Letters Will be continued. We have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Boston and Angasta, 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 i>eoplc of Maine, and eai»ecially to people who have business relations with Portland, wo hope to make the Press more valuable thau any paper published outside of the State can possibly be. We shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We sliall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but wc shall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Dally Summary of Maine News which readers hero would he sorry to miss. Wc shall have Full and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from ul parts of the Uiiited States, from Canada, anil irom England. A weekly Review ot the Portland Markets, anil an accurate Report of Maine Hkippiagt in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE % i Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLAR! A YEAR ! Wc expect to furnish a paper, Tlie Largest in tlie State, and ns 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 oi it«» dally edition. It is designed to be as carefully made up as if it w ere a perfectly inde pendent publication. It contains from week to week, tbe most important articles whkh apjjear in the dally, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepared for its Oolmnns Wc sliall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To l»c conducted by the Rcy.

The Shipping News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Martels, 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 car eful Digest of General and Stale News, We shall also ftrmish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for tho Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper ia New England. It is offered to the public at the low price of £ 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 arc glad to stc such evidence of prosperity. With such pajiers as Portland now furnishes we sec no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From tbe Portland Price Current.] Tiie Press.—The crowded slate of our columns last week prevented us irom noticing the enlagenient 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, aud 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 tho Gardiner Home Journal.] Enlarged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st Inst., to about tho size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only tlie 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 tho patronage it re ceives, is a credit to Portland and to the Suae, and we hope increasing years may Increase its prosper ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by tlie addition of 2] inches to the length of its col umns. its make-up liaw^ilso been changed again, and on the whole it presonte-i a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “ new clothes” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. l.j The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large • torrn, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper in New’ England. The editor, in his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that tho success ol the paper for the last year ha*» lieen most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to tlie original style of arranging tlie contents oi the paper, is one of tue most agreeable features of the change. [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on tlie 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. Tills evidence of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland has lostuothingol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great lire, but that its course is still onward—that its business is in fact in creasing, notwitlislanding the apparent calamity oi last year—and that its promise oi commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Press is among tlie best of the New England papers, and its pfesent apjiearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] gr' The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and wc suspeetdt now givos another settler to the ?ucstiou which is “the principal japer iu Portland.” t is bound to distance its competitors. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.) The* Portland Press lias increased its size equiva lent to an addition of ihree or tour columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the allies of the great lire, show’s that the principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of Its readers are appreciated l»y the public. The a ldiuonal sp ec now obtained will be devoted to details oi important events, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.) The Press-—Am ong the papers that commence the new year wilit 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 ot Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of ihe ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From the Porllaud Advertiser, Jan. 2.) The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged lorin. It m now fully equal in size to any daily paper in New England. In the arrangement ol reading nuittor it has returned to the original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has been under the oditorial man agement ot Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all political matters. He has taken a lair stand, always discussing topics in a dignified manner, yet leaning in all viiai more prosperity in me next year than it has had in the past. Its news is judiciously and carefully selected, an 1 a general culture and literary taste characterizes its couteni s. As a good lhmily newspaper it 1ms 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 In «he State. Tlie enlargement argues a prosperous business* at least for ur extemporary> and we hope it will never be found necessary to curtail th< dimensions of this enterprising an.I respectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er iblvenlargedland with a return to its old style of 4 make-up.” This enlargement—:so soon after the groat lire—to a size equal with the leading Boston daiiu-s, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprize on the pari nl the proprietors. The Press is edited with ability, has aide contributors, and as the leading Paper of the dominant party, is a power in &e land. [From the Portland Transcript.] The Daily Press begins the new year much en larged ill size; we are glad to see such an evidence of 1 the prosperity of this excellent journal. The prt(gH lias swung around tlie circle fo another arrangement of its editorial and news matter; after all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and new s together was the best. till NOTICES.
