Brown, and Lieut. Greenwood, and ninety men, were killed on the 28tli of January. Gen. Sherman has forwarded to Oen. Grant an extract from a private letter received at his office from Sergeant Tlierfort, describing the massacre. It represents that no one es caped, that all were butchered and scalped, aud their bodies gashed and chopped with knives and tomahawks, and stripped of every article of dress. Eleven were shot through and through with arrows. The writer com plains of the conduct of the Indian Commis sioners, and says they arc furnishing the In dians with guns and ammunition to hunt with, hut which they are using to inurdei; white men. The official report estimates tbe number of Indians attacking tbe massacred party at ihree thousand. The United States steamer Lancaster was at Barbadoes on January 1st.

Douglass, conclud ing Fort Dodge, dated January 13th, relative to the issue of arms and munitions to the Kio was and other Indians, and expressing appre hensions of Indian hostilities in consequence. He says the anxiety of the Indians to obtain arms and ammunition is so great, that for a re volver the Indians will give ten and even twenty times its value in horses (and furs.— This anxietv cannot be caused by the lack of such articles, because they have plenty to last them for some time. But everything tends to show that the Indians are laying in large sup plies preparatory to an outbreak. A great deal ot dissatisfactioli seems to have been caused by the unequal distribution of presents by the agents.

WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE. i Damaging Testimony Against tlw President. SENATOR SAULSJtURY TO RESIGN. Jeff. Davis and the Assas sination Plot. THE PRESIDENT S RECONSTRUCTION PLAN. New York, Feb. 2. A Washington dispatch says the Judiciary ■ Committee of the House have become satisfied ; that the testimony already adduced, including that of Gen Butler, is sufficient to warrant ar ticles of impeachment against the President.— This conclusion is based upon the testimony of radicals only. There has been no testimony yet heard in behalf of the President, and when this is offered it may entirely change the minds of the Committee. The strong vote given in the House on the provision in the tenure ol the office bill that Cabinet officers shall not be removed except by aud with the advice of the Senate was biou<dit out by the statement privately made that in no other way could Secretary Stanton be re tained in his place. It is reported that Senator Saulsbury has determined to resign his position. The author of the letter to Mr. Seward con cerning Mr. Motley, is a man ol' wealth, mak ing a tour of pleasure through Europe. His name will probably he communicated to the Senate in response to Mr. Sumner’s resolu tion. Another speciat says Gen. Ashley is busy working up the impeachment business. He lias just come into possession of some very im g'riant tacts, exceedingly damaging to the resident. The J udiciary Committee are at work on the investigation of the alleged implication of Jell. Davis in the assassination plot. The Postal Committee to-day decided to re commend the repeal of the law prohibiting the carrying ot books aud newspapers iu the over land mail, aud making the postal laws of the country uuiform in tlioir action. It is believed that the appointment of a na val officer for New York will soon be made.— Cob Wood of Brooklyn is preparing his inter ests, and Thurlow Weed is working for Depu ty Collector Franklin. There is foundation ibr the reported now plau of restoration. The President has asked the views of leading Southerners, and he will submit to the fortieth Congress a basis which, it is thought, will commend itself to the Lib eral elements of the llepuhlican party aud be acceptable to the leading men of the .South.— One feature of the new plan will be doubtless based in universal amnesty aud another on qualified suffrage. The sub-Committec on Reconstruction is at loggerheads, each member pressing his plan.— Thad. Stevens shows a disposition to make concessions, but the Bingham faction was not disposed to meet him half way. New York, Feb. 3. The Herald’s special Washington dispatch says a council of General officers of the army has beeu called by Gen.

Ihe steamer Golden Age, with passengers from New York Jau. 11th, arrived this morn ing. She brings later dates from Mexico. Gen. Alvarez had moved his forces towards the city of Mexico, his headquarters being still at Oquala. The last heard from the Imperialists was that the force's under Mendez were besieged in Mor tia by the Liberals. News of tbe taking ol that town was soon expected. ^ Corona had passed quickly thrown Tepie. and would march on Colima, now in the hands of the Imperialists, making it impassable for merchandise to Guadalajara and other cities from the coast.

THE P"RESS For 1807. With the opening of the new year we pieeented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged la 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, 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 voicclt-ss 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 the North grew up sido by side, a (>eriod of jealousy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered ou 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 ot 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 ot 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 parts of the world will prove too great for single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some tiling ot its old importance. Newspai>er associations or new« 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 joumadsm but we must be governed by the 9Mue considerations. We have engaged Regular CorrcapondcnlM in Washington, New York, Boston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stale. During the session of the Legislature, wc shall publish Special Dispatcher from Augusta 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 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 Fall and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al' parte of the 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 heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A TEAR ! We expect to fiimiah a paper, The Largest in tlie State, and as large as In other States is offered for tenor twelve dollars a year. --i THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings ot the daily edition. It is designed to he. 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 tlie daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during tlie coming year, An Agricultural Department, To be conducted by the Rev, WILLIAM A. DREW, nf Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine', and a contributor for some time past to the Press over tho signature of “Traxi.” Mr. Drew’s special qualifications for this work need no heralding. The Shipping Hews of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Restores. I 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 Hews, We shall also furnish 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 in lew England. It is offered to the public at the low price of 9 DOLLARS A YEAR, INVARIABLY IN ADVANCE. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent fiir twenty dollars, and the same discount is offered to larger clubs. -- NOTICES OF THE PRESS. [From the Christian Mirror.] The Press lias been enlarged since New* Year’s. Wo 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.| The Press.—The crowded slate of our rotanms last week prevented us from noticiugthe enlugeinent and re-arrangement of tho 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 consFfdcration the amount of interesting reading mattei: 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 Bailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosper! tv of the Press, but of Portland as well, tor of course tlie en largement is caused by tlie increase of advertising favors. The Press is worthy of the patronage it re ceiver, is a credit to Portland and to the St me, and we hope increasing years may increase its prosiier ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of ‘J} inches to the length of Its col umns. Its make-up has also been chungeal again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “new cloUies” arc .'-omewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggent are not always the best.’* [From tlie Portland Evening Star, Jam. l.j The Daily Press appears tills morning in an en large ' lorm, making it now fully equal iu site to any daily newspaper in New England. The editor, iu his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the succ ess of the paper for the past year ha* been most gratifying, and we arc glad of its prosperity. The return to tlie original style of arranging the contents ol tke paper, is one of 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 Dnily Post and Advertiser—which are our largest New England •ladies- 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 has lost noth!ngoi vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great tire, but that its course is still onward—that its business is in ftict In creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity ut last year—and that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. 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.] igy* The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and we suspect it now gives another settler to Yee question which is “ the principal paper m 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 audition of three or four columns. This enlargement, lollowing 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, The additional sp co now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections from current literature. fFrom the Worcester (Mas9.,) Spy.] wwir.

As a good family newspaper it lias no su perior: and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as it is generally acknowledged in that department he has no equal in the State. Tile enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least tor ur eotemporary, and we hope it will never be thuml necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] tir* 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 alter the great tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, speaks favorably for the pro*pcrity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprise on the part Ot the proprietors. The Picas is edited with ability, has able contributors, and as the leailing paper of the dominant party, is a power in the laud. [From the Portland Transcript.] The Daily Press begins the new year much en larged in size; wc are glad to soe such an evidence of the prosperity of this excellent journal. The Press has 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.
