Yester day morning at Tlirog’s Neck the steamers Oceanus, Glaucus and Chesapeake were lock ed iu the ice unable to move a foot either way. The Continental endeavored to force her way through the ice, hut failed, and was detained five or six hours. Finally a gang plank was lowered, and the passengers, nearly two hun dred iu number, descended to the ice and cross ed the Souuil to Wllitestone. Some of them had to jump from one cake of ice to another, and one or two had to be pulled out of the water. One, an old lady, was saved from drowning by her carpet bag, which buoyeu her up. The steamers Empire State and Old Colouy had the same luck, and their passengers were also obliged to foot it ashore. The Old Colony was the first to overmaster the ice. Alter tug ging away at obstinate cakes for honrs she suc ceeded at 4 o’clock iu getting through. This gave encouragement to her companions iu trouble, and the Empire State, in less than an hour afterward,being assisted by the tide, man aged to secure her freedom. Tlie propellers nextfollowed. The Continental emulated their example. The Continental arrived at her dock, foot of Peek slip, at 6 1-2 o’clock, and the Old Colony and Empire State at pier No. 28 North River, the former at 41-2 o’clock, and the latter one hour later.

With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the else of the largest New England Dailies. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of between three and four columns to its size. This additional spaco will be devoted to de tails ot 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 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 PRi:S8 will continue to defend tho 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 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 antici pa ted. 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 tho 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 fpccial dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing of 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 its special correspondents 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. We have engaged Bcgalar Correspondents in Washington, New ¥erk, Boston and Angnsta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stato. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Angusta 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. 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 bo sorry to miss. We shall have Full mad Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from ol' parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review oi the Portland Markets, and an accurate Beptrt of Maine Skipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will bo published as heretotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Pbess. For EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, The 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 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 Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To be conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DBE W, of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor for 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 tlie 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 currrent alone will bo well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and Stale News, We Shall also furnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. Tlie weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is tho Largest Weekly Paper in lew England. It is offered to the public at tlio low price of 9 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 are glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers as Portland now furnishes we see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] TnE Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us lrom noticing the cnlngcincnt and re-arrangement of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, aud with its excellent editorial management, is certainly the leading journal of Maine, aud equal to any iu New England; especially when taken into consideration the amount ol interesting reading matter that is daily furnished lor the money. [From the Gardiner Homo Journal.] Enlarged.—The Port land Press was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about tlie size of tlie Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosperity of the Press, but. of Portland as well, for of course tlie en largement is caused by tlie iui reass of advertising favors. The Press is worthy of the patronage it re ceives, is a credit to Portland and to the State, anu wo hope increasing years may increase its prosper ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by tlie addition ot 2] inches 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 cotemporary's “ new clothes” arc somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large • form, making it now fully equal iu size to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, in his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper for the past year ha* been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosjierity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents oi the paper, is one of tuc most agreeable features of the change. [From the Bangor Whig.] — Tho Portland Press was enlarged 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 handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so food and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. i shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ot vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great tire, but that its course is still onward—that Its business is in fitc* in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of last year—and that its promise oi commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Press is among the best of tho 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 suspecuit now gives another settler to the question which is “ (he principal paper in Portland.” It 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 three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes of the great tire, shows that the principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public, llie 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 commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and liest jlaily in the State of Maine, and the latter we have xcliaeges M 0110 °* ablest of our Connecticut [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] A ^ fircsms appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged tonn. It now fully equal in size to any dany PaPcr in New England. In the arrangement 0 Vjeing mutter it has returned to the original style, wnicn we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has been under the editorial man agement ot Mr. Kicliardson, its editorials have been high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all politico matters. He has taken a lair stand, always discussing topics in a sxfcsSRwaiass ssvte S management, and wieh ldm and Se DroSSS.‘?Jto mompres.K.Uy In the next year 5SSK2KS Its news Is judiciously and carefully .elected „„ , a general culture „nd .fterary lane CSM contents.
