With the opening of the new year we p.eiiented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged la the slate efthe largest New England Dailies* The enlargement of oar daily edition in equivalent to the addition of between throe and four columns to its size. This additional space will bo 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 wo have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its i\st history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent the Republicau par ty of Maine. It was impossible tor the controlling party of tho State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press will continue to defend tho principles of the Liberal party of America. The war has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cyclo 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 appeal 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 antic! 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 press, 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. The comple tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management ot newspapers. The leading features of the world’s history will be registered from day to day by the tel egraph. The expense of t pedal dispatches from all parts of the world 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 system by which our foreign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already the Tribune has Us special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We cannol 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 “ Spurwiuk’s” Canadian Letters Will be continued. We have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Boston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the State. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta every morning, tarnishing 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. We shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we f-hall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full aud Accurate 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 Maine Skipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will bo published as heretotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A TEAR t We expect to furnish a paper, Tho Largest in the 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 fbr the leavings ot the daily edition. It is designed to bo as carefully made up as if it wero 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 Oohunns We shall add to its attractions during tho coming year, An Agricultural Department, To be conducted by tbe Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, af Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely anil favorably known in Maine, and a contributor ior sometime past to the Press over tho 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 tbc Review of the Portland Markets, 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 careful Digest of General and Stale News, We shall also tarnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, aud is the Largest Weekly Paper ia Hew England* It is offered to the public at tho low price of 9 DOLLARS A YEAR, INVARIABLY EN 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 tlie Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We are glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers a9 Portland now furnishes we see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] Tiie Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing the enlagement and re-arrangemcnt of tlie columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and with its excellent editorial management, is certainly tlie 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 furnished for the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal ] Enlarged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st Inst., to about the size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not ouly the prosperity of the Press, but ol 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 ol 24 incnee to the length of its col umns. Its make-up lias also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our ro temporary's “ new clothes” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the beet.” [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. Tlie editor, in his New Year's Salutaiory, shows that the success of the paper for the past year lias been most gratifying, and we arc glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging tlie contents 01 the paper, Is one of the most agrceablo features of the change. [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the let 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. Tliis evidence of prosperity on toe part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. It fliowd, too, tout Portland bus lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by tlie great lire, but that its course w still onward—that Its business is in livot in creasing, notwithstanding the ammreut calamity ot last year and that its promise ol commercial great ness is certain to be fiitlilled. The Pres s is among the bestot the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to tlie State. [From the Bath Times.] Tlie Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspocUit now gives another settler to the Question 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 ashes ot the great lire, shows that tlie principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary readers are appreciated by tho public. The a tdluonajsp ee now obtained will be devoted to details ot important events, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.)

The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press cauios to us consid er iblv enlarged and with a return to Us old style of make-up.
