Tlie limited demand of the last few weeks still con tinues; there are but a few buyers here, and they do not seem in haste to make selections, and have been canvassing the neighboring towns for goods, as a gen eral thing finding light stocks in the manufacturers' bauds, held at prices higher than they expected.— Prices gen. rally arc firm considering tho general de pression ol business. The cost of manufacturing, with the single exception of journey men’s wages, is hilly as much as it has been at any time during the last year. The clearances off he week arc for three days only, making the total of the week smaller than it would have been had the weather permitted the usual shipping of Thursday and Saturday. There is rather au improved feeling in the trade, and a pros pect that the spring demand will soon commence, al though a lighter trade is expected than last year, since the dullness of business with manufacturers.— [.Shoe and Leather Reporter.

With the opening of the new year wo p esentoc to the readers of the DAFILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the size of the largest New England Dallies* The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to tho addition of between three and lour columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails of imi>orLant events, which we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as wo havo lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of tho paper thus enlarged will be, its past history will show. Tho Press was es tablished primal ily 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 thj 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 contiict, resulting in an apical to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a sta' oof transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antici paled. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will sot-ure 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 lor all secured by equal laws, freedom of speech, freedom of tlie press, impartial suffrage. Of the profound convictions of the Republican party of Maine, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. Tho 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 lias already begun, in the management of newspapers. Tho leading features of tho world’s history will be registered from day to day by the tel egraph. The expense of f-pot ial 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 0£cnt9 will assume tho task of furnishing tlie daily dispatches, while corrcsiiondents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph lias already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already tiio Tribune lias 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 happy to announce that 44 SpurwinkV Canadian Letters Will be continuod. We have also engaged Regular Corresponds in in Washington, New York, Boston and Aagusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stale. During the session of tho Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatcher 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. Wc shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we thall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Fail and Accaratc market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al* parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review of the Portland Markets, and an accurate Report of IHninc Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, Tli<‘ Largest in the State, and as large as in othor States is offered for ten or twelve dollars a year. ---kJ THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere 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 Oolmims We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To be conducted by the Rev. WVLLIAm A. DREW, of Augaita, 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 News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Reports. To country trailers the weekly report of Portland prices currrcnt alone will be well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and Stale News, We shall also fnrnisli 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 Largot Weekly Paper in New England* It is offered to tho public at tlie low price of £ DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent tor twenty dollars, and the same discount is offered to larger clubs. ------ NOTICES OF TOE PRESS. [From the Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We are glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers as Portland now tarnishes we see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Press.—Tlie crowded slate of our columns last week prevented as from noticing the enlagement. and re-arrangeiuent of tlie columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and with its excellent editorial management, is certainly tho 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 tarnished for the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.] Enl arged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on tho 1st inst., to about tlie size of tho Boston Dailies. This io an evidence of not only tho prosperity of tlie 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 and to the State, and we hope increasing years may increase 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 make-up has also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “new clothes” are hoinewbat 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 on en large form, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaiicr in New England. The editor, in his New kear’s Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper for the past year ha* been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents oi the paper, is one of luo most agreeable features of the change. IFrom the Bangor Whig.] — Tho Portland Press was onlarged on the 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 nandsytnc appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so good ami reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. Ii show’s, too, that Portland has losluothitigoi vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great lire, but that its course is still onward—that Its business is in loci in creasing, notwithstanding tlie apparent calamity ut last year—and that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Pras is among the best of the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] jy* The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspectat now gives another settler to the ?uestion which is •* the principal paper in Portland.*' t is bound to distance its competitors. [From tho Lewiston Journal, Jan. l.J The Portland Press has increased Us size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so cloFely upon its resurrec tion f rom the allies of the great Are, shows that the principles it advocates and its e(forts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. Tho aiditional sp.ee now obtained will be devoted to details of important ovents, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] THE Press —Among the papers that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Kveiling Press. The former is the largest and best daily in tho State rtf Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From tho Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged torm. It .s now lully equal in size to .any SSJLSRP* n ^ew England. In the arrangement lt to returned to the original style, ance WC ttimk <luite an improvement In its appear Press has been under the editorial man agement of Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence oyer its patrons on all political matters.

As a good lamiiy newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of iocal news, as it is generally acknowledged in that department he has no equal in tlie State. Tlie enlargement argues a prosporous business, at least for ur coteraporary, and we hope it will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions ot this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] tSf-* 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 after the great hre—to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enter prize on the parted the proprietor*. Thu Pics is edited with ability, lias able contributors, and as the leading paper ot tbo dominant party, is a power in the land. [From the Portland Transcript.] i Pness begins the new year much en larged m size;, we are glad to see such an evidence of the prosperity of this excellent journal. The Press lias 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 news together was the best. ° HEAL LSTA'jrJS.
