The following is a synopsis of Mr. Bank’s proposed substitute lor the bill of the Recon struction Committee providing for military governments in the lately rebellious States. The preamble recites that, Whereas, A form uf government has been or ganized in Louisiana, one of the States lately in rebellion, which has never b°eu recognized by Congress, and having failed to secure the right of loyal citizens or protect the Govern ment against disloyal persons, and cannot now be recognized without peril to the public inter est, and niixreas, As the condition ot the country imperatively demands the earliest restoration of this and other insurgent States; and Whereas, There is reason to believe that with such protection as the general Government may rightfully extend to the people of Louisiana they will be able to establish and maintain for themselves the equaltty of rights affirmed by the Declaration of Independence and guaran teed by the Constitution to all the people ot the United States forever. The first section provides for creating the appointment of three Commissioners, one to he designated by the Senate, one by the House, an officer in the army to be designated by the head of the Department of War, to proceed immediately to Louisiana and re-es tablish civil government in a Republican form upon the basis herein specified. The second section provides that all loyal male citizens of 21 years of age and upwards shall be registered without distinction of race, color or former condition of slavery who have resided six months in the State, and who have heretofore exercised the rights of suffrage, or served in the army or navy of the United States, or possess real or persona) estate to the value or $100, who are able to contribute by taxation to the support of the Government, or who read and write; and the citizens so registered shall have a right to vote for delegates to the Constitutional Con vention. The third section excludes from suf frage all who have taken an oath as members of Congress, officers of the United States, together with members of the State Leg islative or executive or judicial officers ot any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, and subsequently engaged in the rebellion, giving aid and comfort thereto, or voted for any act of secession; but Congress by each House may remove such disability. The fourth section empowers and directs the commissioners to call an election of registered voters qualified under this act, not less than thirty days notice to be given, under such reg ulations as they shall deem necessary or expe dient, for the choice of delegates to a conven tion to adopt a constitution. The convention shall consist of the same number of members as the most numerous branch of the Legislature previous to the rebellion. The convention shall meet at the time designated by the Com missioners. Registered voters and all elected to office under this act are required to take the test oath. If the Commissioners or officers of registration be satisfied that any person has falsely or fraudulently taken the test oath, his name shall be stricken from the register. The Convention when duly organized shall submit to its members, 1st, the question of the accept ance of this act as a basis for the restoration of civil government in Louisiana. 2d. The ratification of the Constitutional Amendment proposed to the Legislatures ot the several states by Congress, and if the same is accept ed and ratified, the Convention shall proceed to form a State Constitution. This Constitu tion is to be submitted to the registered voters uuder this act, and it ratified by a majority ol the legal voters, shall be declared the Consti tution of the State of Louisiana. The milita ry commander of the Department is author ized to declare martial law in certain contin gencies, and use military force to sustain the action of the Commissioners and to maintain public peace. All public officers or persons in authority, by whomsoever appointed, are re quired to render the Commissioners or per soas appointed by them, or ill pursuance of their orders, such aid as may be necessary to secure the objects contemplated. Military officers are authorized and required, on com plaint of the Commisssoners or officers ap pointed, etc., to arrest and punish by fine or imprisonment, any person who shall be guilty of any offence against the public peace, or per sons in authority under this act. The expen ses arc to be paiu by the United States to be reimbursed by the State. The last section ap propriates the amount required to carry this act into effect. The Committee on Ways and Means will probably to-morrow report an amendatory in ternal tax bill. It is based on the the theory of getting rid 01 a general tax on manufac turing products at the earliest possible mo ment, hut the wants of the Government this year, will not permit it to he done at once.— Hence the principle is to be gradual in its op eration. To partially carry out this object the committee propose to exempt from tax all arti cles which enter largely into the cost of living. AJaection is added to avoid a duplication of taxes, so that where there is a tax on the raw material there shall not be another tax on the mauulactured article in its various forms. The tax is to be cither on the raw material or on the manufactured article. A large number of articles are to be exempt from tax because the expense of collection is not equivalent to the receipts therefrom. The income tax is to be on the amount in excess of $1000 instead of $000, and the uniform rate 5 per cent. All rents, taxes, insurance and repairs are to be deducted. A more stringent provision is made for the collection of the tax on whiskey. When an article is offered for sale at less than the amouut of the tax, this fact is tojbe regarded as prima facie evidence that it has not paid the tax and is subject to seizure. The report of the Commissioner for January contains an elaborate compilation of the sta tistics of the wages of farm labor throughout the country, based on original returns from ev ery State in the Union. It also includes the territories. The average rate of wages for white labor, without board, is $28 per month, and $15.50 with board. The average rate of freedmen’s labor is $16 per mouth with board furnished at $0.75. The highest rates for the States is in California, which is about $45 per month. Massachusetts pays the next higest wages, viz., $88 per month. •Southern Item*.

With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAlILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged to the nine 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 we have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, sueli as we have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the pai>er thus enlarged will lie, its past history will show. The PRESS was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was im]>ossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press will continue to defend the principles of tho Liberal party of America. The war lias closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle during which aristocracy at the South and democra cy at tho North grew up side by side, a period of jealousy and conflict, resulting in an api>cal to arms and the victorious supremacy of tho democratic prin ciple. We have entered on a stale of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antic! pated. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing is settled till it is settled light. We must have de mocracy at tho South as well as at the North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, froedom of speech, freedom of the pre^s, impartial suftrage. 01 the profound convictions of the Republican party oi 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 exjsjnsc of tutorial 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. The Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our lorcign news has for years l»cen furnished by steamer, and already tho Tribune lias its special cmrospondtnrs established in almost every capital in Europe. We cannot rival the feats o New York journalism but wc must be governed by the same considerations. We Lave engaged Regular CorrcMpomlenU in \Ya»biM«lau, New Vark, Roxtsu aud Augaota, and occasional eon. -spoiidcntB at various points throughout tlio State. During the notion of the legislature, we shall publish Sp<M»ial Di^patolioH from Augusta every morning, furnishing a synop sis of the previous day’s proceedings. To the people of Maine, aud especially to people who have business relations with Portland, we hojie t«* make the Press more valuable (ban any i»apcr 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 tball have regular corrcsiHUidence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full and Accurate market Reports, 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 Report of ITfaiue Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as herctotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN T11E PR1CE Of the Daily Peess. For BIGHT DOLLARS A YB lit ! We expect to furnish a 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 leavings ol the daily edition. It is designed to be as carefully made up as if it were a perfectly inde jicndent 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 sludl add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To be conducted by the Rev. U ILMA11 A. DREW, 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 lor this work need no heralding. The Shipping News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Review of the Portland Markets, And the Rrighion Market Reports. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent alone will he well w orth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careftil Digest of General and Stale 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, ami is the Largest Weekly Paper iu New Fuglaiid. It is offered to the public at the low price of ‘J DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent for twenty dollars, ami the same discount is offered to larger clubs. NOTICES OF THE PRESS* (From the Christian Mirror.) The £rE8S has lieen enlarged since New Year’s. We are g'.ad to sets such evidence of prosperity.

While we caunot always agree with all of his political notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character and culture he has 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 carefhlly selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good fondly newspaper it has no su perior; and white Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as it is generally acknowledged iu that department he has no equal in the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet.
