The following correspondence between James Gordon Bennett, Jr., and His Royal Highness the Duke ol Edinburgh, is permitted to be pub lished, as the sentiments expressed in the Duke’s letter are ot au interesting character, and tend to show the feeling of England to wards the United States: “Off Cowes, Dec. 31,18f>li.—Your Royal High ness:—At Lord Lenox’s dinner, on Friday last, you were pleased to match your yacht, the Viking, to sail the Henrietta around the Isle of Wight, next August, for a cup worth one hun dred pounds. I would not say so then, because I was bound to make the match proposed; but, in fact, this arrangement will somewhat inter fere with the disposition which I had determin ed to make of mv yacht, in case she should win the oceau race. I beg that you will accept as a New Year’s gift—to an English yachtsman from an American .yachtsman—the Henrietta as she now lies in perfect order off Cowes, aud I have instructed Captain Samuels to bold her subject to your orders. The unlxiunded hospitality with which the American yachtsmen have been received by all classes in England will always he remembered in the United States with the warmest gratitude, and I sincerely hope you will not deprive me of the opportunity of ac knowledging tills most cordial reception by pre senting the winning yacht to the representa tive of English yachtsmen. I have the honor to remain, Very resnectlully, yours, J. G. Bennett, Jr.” “Clarence House, ‘22nd Jan. 1807.—Dear Mr. Bennett:—I find it difficult to express how gratefully I appreciate the kindly feeling which dictated your letter of the 31st ult., as well as the splendid present which you offer to my ac ceptance, but most of all the delicacy with which you seek to diminish the personal obli gation under which you would lay me, by giv ing to .your generous offer au international character. It is, indeed, this last consideration only which has led me to hesitate in replying to your letter,—for personally it would have been impossible for me to accept so costly a present,—-but I feel bound fully to consider the xuestion in the light ill which yon were good enough to place it, and if on full consideration I feel compelled to deoliue your generous offer, I trust that neither you or your gallant compe titors, nor your countrymen at large, will be lieve that the yachtsmen of England less ap preciate or less reciprocate the tee ling of good fellowship which prompted the offer. The Hen rietta is a vessel which any man may be proud to possess, and I trust she may long continue in the haudH in which she has accomplished so triumphant Success. We must do our best to find a rival to her, and in common with all Englishmen I sincerely hope that such friend ly rivalry may be the only description of con test in which our respective countries may ever be engaged. It has given us great pleasure to offer a cordial reception to you and your com panions in England, and I feel assured that if my professional duties in command of one of Her Majesty’s ships should ever take me to your shores, I should there meet on the part of my brother seamen with a reception not less hearty than that which we have been happy to afford you here. Believe me, yours sincerely, Alfred.” SOUTHWEST. Threatened Innndnlion at ■■clrun, Ark. An Ex-Be.bcl Endorsed — Arknusn* Polities. St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 28.

Mr. Niblaok moved an amendment to insert “ appropriation for salary of Minister to Por tugal.” Mr. Stevens explained that Congress at their last sessiou had stricken out this salary, because Mr. Harney, the then incumbent, had written a most abusive and insulting let ter, eulogizing the President.

Air. Chandler asked, would not the same rule apply to Constantsaople-uml Aladrid. Mr. Stevens explained that the Christian re ligion was permitted at the first named place, and was not aware that Spain prohibited it. Mr. Banks deemed that precipitate action should not be taken. Air. Hale moved to amend Mr, Stevens* amendment by striking ont the preamble. Mr. Finch denounced the movement.

With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAlILY 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 ot important events, which we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, ami to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as wo liave 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 tor the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in tliis city. The Press will continue to defend the principles of the Liberal party of America. The war lias 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 api>cal to arms and tlie victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a stale of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antici imted. Tho 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 lor all secured by equal laws, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Ot 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. Tho 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 the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ot its old importance. Newspai»er 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 lias already destroyed the sysiem by which our foreigu news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already the Tribune has Us social correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We cannot rival the feats o New York jouruadsm but we mu^t be governed by the same considerations. We liave engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Dostoa 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, furnishing a synop sis of tlie previous (lay'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 tlie same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we frliall 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 Reporta, forwarded by telegraph from al’. parts of tlie United States, from Canada, and from England. A weekly Review ot the Portland Markets and an accurate Report of Maine (Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as hcretotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of tlie Daily Press. For EIGhT DOLLAR!) 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 not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for tlie leavings ot the daily edition. It is designed to be as can fully made up as if it were a perfectly inde pendent publication. It contains from week to week, the most important articles which appear in tlie daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, Ah Agricultural Department, To bo conducted by tbo Rer. WILLIAM A. DBEHr, of Augaiita, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor tor 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 Btate Press, as will also tlie Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Reports. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent aloue will be well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and Stale News, We shall also famish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Reading for the 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 oiferod to the public at the low price of ‘J DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of NEW subscribers, eleven copies will bo sent for twenty dollars, and the same discount is olfered to larger clubs. NOTICES OF THE PRESS. [From the Christian Mirror.] The Press has l>ecn enlarged since Now Year’s. Wc aro glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers as Portland now furnishes wo see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Press.—Tlie crowded state of our columns last week prevented us lroiu noticing tlie cnlugomcnt and re-arrangement 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, 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 tlie Gardiner Home Journal.] Enlaiuikii.—The Portland Press was enlarged on tlie 1st inst., to about tlie size of the boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosperity of tlie Press, hut of Portland as well, for of course 'the cn largemcnt is caused by the increase oi' subrortising 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. IFrnm the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition ol 2i inches to the length of its col umns. Its make-up lias also been change il again, and on tlie whole it presented a decidedly i tuproved appearance. Our roicmpirary’s "new clot lies” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest arc not always the best.” [From the' Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press apiiears this morning in an en large ■ torm, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, in his New Year's Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper lor the past year lia- been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosjierity. The return to the original style of arranging tlie contents ol the paper, is one ol tnc most agreeable features of the change. [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about the size of the Boston Daily Post ami Advertiser—wliicli are our largest New England dailies-and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the p irt of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great tire, 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 of commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Press is among the bestot the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] JEW* The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspeettit now gives another settlor to tlie question which is ‘‘the principal paper in Portland.” It 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 rcsurrec tion trom the allies of the great lire, shows that the pnnciples it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers arc appreciated by the public, lhc additional sp ce now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] The Press.— Among the papers that comrnencc the new year wilh enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. Tlie former is the largest and lest daily in the State of Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. (From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] T*1® ^ess appeared yesterday morning in an gS** *»“■»» '* now tuny equal in size to any m New England, in the arrangement !t has returned to the original style, wnien we think quite an improvement In its appear auce. *r Since the Press has been under the editorial man ogenicnt ^ Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned aud reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all politic J matters. He has taken a tair stand, always discussing topics in a tllsnllled manner, yet leaning In all vital iiwn-» with Ins party. Wliile we cannot always airree wtin'.di"l hia political notions, we heartily bear witness mrhll ability, character and culture be 1ms <lisi.u5eU 1?, u! management, ami wish him and the propri/nmi7,1 more prosiierity in the next year than it lias hml m the last. 111 lUJM'Ws is judiciously ami carefully selected and a general culture and literary taste characterizes eonleuts. As a good litmlly newspaper it has m» su perior; and while Jlr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will bo no lack of lucal news, as it is generally acknowledged in that department he no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporary, and wo hope it will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising ami respectable sheet. IJTum the Bangor Times.] Sir' The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style ol “ make-up.” This enlargement—so soon after the great lire—to a size equal W itll the leading Boston dailies, speaks lavoratdy fir the prosperity of the city and iudicutcsu good degree of enterprise on tlie part of the proprietors. The Press is edited with ability, lias able contributors, and as tile loailing taper of the dominant party, is a power in the laud. IFroui the Portland Transcript.] THE Daily Peeks liegius the new year much en larged in size; we are glad to see such an evidence of the prosperity ot tills excellent journal. The Press has swung arouiul the circle to auotber uriiiiiKciiit'iit of Its editorial ami news matter; after all, the old second anti third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and new s together was the best.
