With tlio opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged la the lize of the largest New England Dailies. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of t>etween three and 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 iu brief, and to selections from currcut literature, gravo or gay, such as we have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its past liis$ory 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 Press will continue to defend the 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 tlio 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 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. 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. The 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 i parts of the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ol 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 syslem 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. Wo cannot rival the feats o New York journalism but we must be governed by the same considerations. We have engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, Boston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stato. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta overy 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, wo 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 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 Fnll and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al parts of tho United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review oi the Portland Markets, anil an aci-orate Hcp.rt of Mniae Skipping, in foreign and domestic porta, will be published as heretotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAH 1 AVc expect to furnish a paper, Tlie Largest in the State, and as large as in other States is offered for ten or twelve dollars a year. THE MAINE STATE PEESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings at 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 iu the daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepaied for its Columns Wc shall add to Us attractions during the coming year, Ah Agricultural Department, To be conducted by tbe Bcv. WILLIAM A. DB£W,of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor tor 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, os will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Rejioris. 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 State News, We shall also furnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is tho Largest Weekly Paper ia New England. It is offered to tlie public at tbe 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 PBEH. [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 Trice Current.] TriE press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing the enlagcment and re-arrnngement of the 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 Englaud; 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 iust., to about the size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence or not only the prosperity of the Press, but of Portland as well, for of course tbe en largement is caused by the increase of advertising favors. Tho 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 tlic Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] , -P>® f*®88 ipnearod yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2J 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. Onr eoremporary's “new clothes” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From llie Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large • lorm, making it now fully equal in size to any ArSSPc1? The editor, in his New Year ».Salutatory, sIiowh that the success of the paper tor the past year lia* been most gratifying, and wc are glad ol its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents ol the paper, is one ol the 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 and Advertiser—which are our largest New England (lames - ami it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on tiie part of so f00?"‘d.",^le»^aP®' 88 the Press is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland has lost noth!ugol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great lire, but that its course is still onward—that its business is in fact in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of last year—and that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Press is among the best ol the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. IFrem the Bath Times.] Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect-.it now gives another settler to the question which is *« the principal paper in Portland.” It is bound to distance its competitors. [brom the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has increased Us size equiva lent to an additiou of iliree or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes of the great fire, shows that the principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers aro appreciated by the public. The a Iditional sp ce now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections Irom current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] Tiie 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 iress. The former is the largest and best daily in the State of Maine, and the latter we have exchanges ^ *** °Ue °* ^ie “blest of our Connecticut [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.J **res8 appeared yesterday morning In an wr11 18 now "lUy equal iu size to any England. In the arrangement lias returned to tiie original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has been under the editorial man agement of Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrons on all politic A matters. He has taken a feir stand, always discussing topics inn dignified manner, yet leaning in all vital issue. wllh' his party. While we cannot always agree with Mi !r his noiHJcai notions, wo heartily tiar^u.e,.,*1^ ability, character and culture be has displayed in it. management, and wish him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the next year than it has had in the past. Its news is judiciously and carefully selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor's chair there will be no lack of local news, as it in generally acknowledged in that department he has no equal in ‘he State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur coteraporary, and we hope it will never be tbund necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet. 1 ■- • [From the Bangor Times.] VS^ The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ make-up.” This enlargement—so soon niter the groat tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, speaks favorably for the pro:-polity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprize on the partof the proprietors. The Press is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as tbo lea*ling pnper of the dominant party, is a power in the land. [From the Portland Transcript.) The Daily Press begins the now year much en larged, in size; we are glad to sec such an evidence of the prosperity oi this excellent journal. The Press lias swung around the circle to another arrangement of its editorial and news matter; alter all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best.
