What the Southerners and Presi dent Propose. New Yoke. Feb. 5. ■ A Washi ugtnn special says it is evident that the House Naval Committee will report iu fav or of the removal of the Naval Academy from Aunapolis, and it is stated that New London will be selected for the Academy, and League Island for the Iron-clad Navy Yard. Secretary McCulloch has tent to the Finance Committee the scheme prepared by him, in conjunction with the National Bunks, to issue $100,000,000 in 4 per cent, loan certificates. It is thought that the committee will report it to the Senate. The House Committee ore op posed to it, but there is little doubt it will pass the House. The proposition to prevent the reduction of the issue of legal tenders during the current year will fail in the Senate, the Secretary of the Treasury having strength enough iu the Senate Committee to prevent it from being re ported. The most that either House will do the preseut session will be to pass some meas ure providing lor the issue of loan certificates to take the place of compound interest notes falling due during the year 18*ii*. The Way-s and Means Sub-Committee have reported that it is not expedient to make any reduction m the whiskey tax at preseut. Com missiouer Wells is anxious to get a reduction, but it looks as if it would fail. If General Dix’s nomination to France is re jected, the place will probably be solicited for Senator Foster. Gov. Andrew is also spoken of, and it is said tho President favors bis ap pointment. The Vienna mission will probably he tender ed to Gen. King, now at Borne. "Mr. Gowau cannot be confirmed. The Times' special says the following is the amendment to the Constitution the Southern ers iu Washington have agreed to, and that the President has agreed to it: Am. 14. Section 1. No State has a right to secede, nor has the Federal Government a right to eject a State or deprive it of representation in Congress. Section 2. The United States debt shall he held sacred and inviolate, but the rebel debt shall never be paid by the nation or any State. Section 3. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to its jurisdic tiou, shall be citizens, and shall have the rights and immunities of all the States. Life, liberty and property are guaranteed. Section 4. Bepresentutiou shall be based on numbers, cottutiug all persons except Indians not taxed; but when a State excludes any of its population, on account of race or color, from voting, those excluded shall not be counted in the basis of representation. Also the following to be part of the Consti tution of each State: Auxicle —. . Every mule citizeu a year iu the State snd six mouths in tho country imme diately preeeping an election, and who can rend the Declaration of Independence and the Unit ed States Constitution, in the English lan guage, and can write his name, and the owner of $300 worth of taxable property, shall he en titled to vote.

The steamship City of Paris arrived this af ternoon from Havre, with 272 passengers. There had been little or no abatement in the severity of the weather in England, and the continued frost was causing great distress and suffering among tho unemployed laboring classes. The Sunday Gazette sa.yn that a reform bill will not be found among the measures which the Government proposes 11 submit to Parlia ment at is next session upon their own respon sibility, and justifies the ministerial abstention on various grounds. A reform bill must bo un dertaken by the wish and under the guidance of both houses. The relbrm must lie the work of the House of Commous itself rather that apart from it. The text of Napoleon’s letter to the Minister of State, accompany the decree of reforms, was published on the 20th ult. at Paris. He says:—“Theplan which 1 have traced out to myself consists in correcting imperfections which time has revealed, and in admitting that progress which is compatible with our habits, for to govern is to profit by the experience’ which has been acquired aud to foresee the wants of the future/’ In conclusion, lie says: ‘T said last year that my Government wished to walk upon ground consolidated and capable of sustaining power aud liberty. By the meas «** have just pointed out my words become realized. I do not shake tile ground which fif tecn years of calm and prosperity have consoli dated, hut I increase its strength by rendering my relations with the great public powersmoro intimate by securing to citizens by law fresh guaranties, and by completing the crowning of the edifice erected by the national will.” * Deary Kebbrry of Garerameul Bends.

Ptei® '• Westbrook,'Me^caro^Deerini January», ig^, eodlw* PROSPECTUIS, THE PRESS For 1867. With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY 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 and four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails ot important events, which wc 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 oiuit altogether. What the character of the pa{>cr thus enlarged will be, its past history will show. The Puess was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible lor 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 the North grew np 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 sutl'ragc. 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 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 thing ot 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. Tiie Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our foreign news has 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 wo must be governed by the same considerations. We have engaged Regular Correspondent* in Washington) New York) Boston 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 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 tliau any paper published out side of the State can possibly be. Wc 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 hero would be sorry to miss. We shall have Fall and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from all parts of tho United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review ot the Portland Markets, and an accurate Report of Blaine Shipping, in foreign and domestic porta, will be published as heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, The Largest in tho State, and as large as in other States is ottered for ten or twelve dollars a year. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings ot 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 Hatter Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To bo conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, of Aagasta, 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 he published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Reports, 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 News, w e snail also iunusu wcwuy a page ui Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is the I> argent Weekly Paper in New 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 for twenty dollars, and the samo discount is offered to Larger clubs. NOTICE* OF THE PRES*. [From the Christian Mirror.] Th* Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We arc glad to seo sueli evidence of prosperity. With sucli paj»ers as Portland now furnishes w'e see no need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us from noticing the enl^gement and re-arrangement of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged form, and with 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 for the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.] Enlarged.—The Pori laud Pross was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about the size of the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the prosi>erity of the Press, but of Portland as well, for of course the en largement is caused by the im rcase of advertising favors. The Press is worthy of the patronage it re ceives, b a credit to Portland and to the State, and wo hope Increasing years may increase its pros]K;r ity. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Pres* appeared yesterday morning enlarged by tbo addition ox 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. I.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large i ionu, 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 for the past year has been most gratifying, fiud we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents ol the 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 Daily Post and Advertiser—which arc 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. Jt shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, eu^rprise or resource, by the great lire, but that its conrM i* 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 fidfilled. 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.] rF* The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed a nd we suspect it now gives another settler to the auestiiM* which is “ the principal paper m Portland.” It is bo and to distance its competitors. [F.tom the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has increased its size equiva lent to an addition of lliree or four columns. This enlargement, .wowing so closely upon its resurrec Ufcm fro® the as ues of the great fire, shows that the ptinciples it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. The a Iditional 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 ot prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and best daily in the State tf Maine, anil the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.) The DaUy Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. it «s now rally equal in size to any daily pap®1 in New England. In the arrangemeul ol reading matter it has returned to the original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press ha9 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..! matters. H< has token a feir stand, always discussing topics in i dlgijMH-d tttagMer, Vri kahUig in nJl vital lasiir, wl,h bis party, while we cannot always agree with all of his pollnral notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character and culture he haa displayed in its 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 careftilly selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspa]>er it )uu» no »u perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as it i« generally acknowledged in that department he lias no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporary, anil we hope it will never be found necessary to cuLUiil the dimensions of this enterprising and respectame sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] „ ^*°rtland Daily Press comes to us consid “Vnnk* ,M,ir»?edTOUd wi,th » return to its old style of ,rrnot ,s enlargement—so soon alter the great tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, speaks lavorotdy for the nrn<itvriiv ni the city aiul iiulieateH a goodWSU of J °n he part ol the proprietors.
