There is little more movouient in the boot and shot trade, but tho business is tar from satuilactory tor the opouhig of the spring trade. There are buyers in the market from different sections of the country, but aa yet they do uot evince a desire to purchase largely.— The general impression abroad that the prices of all kinds of merchandise aro lower, is no doubt affecting the spring demand for boots and shoes, while the cost of manufacturing them is nearly the same as last toll. Stock of all kinds being fully as high now as then, therefore the manufacturer linde hut a small margin in the item of labor 011 which to make concessions. The stock on hand is ample for tho present demand. For the best qualities of work the prices are tlrrn, but for lower, grades are fluctua ing from day to day. With tho present prospect we should advise manu facturers to continue working short, hearing in mind that the produeing capacity of the Eastern market is far in advance of former years, before tbe aid of ma chinery and steam, and that the necessity for making up in advance no longer exists.

With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the daily press, A Paper Enlarged la the liie af the largest New Kaglaud Dallies. The enlargement of our dally edition is equivalent to the addition of between 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 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 bistory will show. The Pbess 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 iu this city. The Pbkss 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 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 tod. The Pbess 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 Pbess will remain a faithful exponent. The present year will probably witness the exten sion of the telegraph round the world. The comple tion ot tiiat great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management ot newspapers. The leading features of the world's bistory 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. Newspaj^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 has already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has for years been fumishod by steamer, and already the Tribune lias 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 Regular € er reape is deals in Washiagtea, New Ysrk, Res tea aad Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stalo. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta every morning, furnishing a synop sis of the previous day’s proceedings. Te the people of Maine, and especially to people who have business relations with Portland, we hope to make the Pbess 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 specisl dispatches from Washington, but we shall 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 h4 Accurate Market Re parts, 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 Re part of Mnine 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 TEAM ! We expect to ihrnisha paper, The 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 for the leaTings 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 in the daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Brpressly 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. DHBW,af Angus.-, a veteran journalist, widely and Cav Press over the signature of “Traxi.” mr. urew's special qualifications for this work need no heralding. The Shipping News of the WeeTe Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Revieto of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Beporis. 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 Netvs, We shall also llimish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made np in eight large pages, of Bix columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper ia New Kugland. It is offered to the public at the low pries of 3 DOLLARS A YEAR, nrvARiABLY IB advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent for twenty dollars, and tho same discount is offered to larger clubs. -— NOTICES OF THE PBEii. [From the Christian Mirror.) Tiib Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We arc glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such papers as Portland now lurnibhes 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 from noticing the enlagemeut and re-arrangement of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and witn its excellent editorial management, is certainly the 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 lor the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.] Enlaroed.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st insL, to about the size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosperity of tho Press, but of Portlaud as well, for of course the en largement is caused by the imreasc of advertising favors. The Press is worthy of the patronage it re ceives, is a credit to Portland anj to the State, ana wo hope increasing years may increase its prospev [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged ! bv the addition or 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” are tome what larger than ours, but tho *' biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.) The Daily Prut appears this morning in an en large term, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, iu 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 prosperity. 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.) — 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 dailies*- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland lias lost nothing of vigor, enterprise or resource, by tlic great lire, but that its course is still onward—tuat its business is in fifci’t in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of last year—and that its promise or commercial great ness is certain to be infilled. The Press is among the best of the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] gy" The Portland Press come9 out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect it now gives another settler to the Juestion 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 of the great fire, shows that the principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. The a iditional gp ce now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.) The Pbehb^--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 tho largest and best daily in the State of Maine, and the-lutter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.) appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form, it » now fully equal iu size to any ,Engian-i. In the arrangement 0 /s6 ha* burned to the 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 J matters. He has taken a fhir stand, always discussing topics In a dignified manner, yet leaning in all vital issues wit hi* party. While we cannot olway* agree with *11 c his political notions, we heartily hear witness to th ability, character and culture he has displayed in it management, and with him and the proprietors eve more prosperity in the next year than it has had t ^Itsnews is judiciously and careftiUv selected, an a general culture and literary taste characterizes It contents. As a good lkmily newspaper it has no su perlor; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed iter's chair there wiil be no lack of local news, os i is generally acknowledged in that department he ha no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, a least for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will nevei be found necessary to curtail the dimensions ot the enterprising and respectable sheet. [Prom the Bangor Tlines.] tP* The Portland Doily Press comes to us consid er tbly enlarged and with a return to its old stylo ol " make-up." This enlargement—so soon after the 5rent lire—to a size equal with the leading Boston allies, speaks lavurably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprise on the part of the proprietor*. The Press is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as the ieaiting paper of the dominant party, is a power in the land. [From the Portland Transcript.] THE DAILY Puicss begins the now year much en larged in size; we are glad to see such an evidence of the prosperity of this excellent journal. The Press has swung around the circle to auother arrangement of iu editorial and newa matter; alter all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best.
