With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PEEBS, A Paper Knlargcd to the size of the largest New Eugiond Dailies* The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition ot between three anti four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails ot important events, which wo have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as wo 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 Republicamjar 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 w ar has closed one great cycle in our national liistory—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 apical to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have euterod on a state of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of 11s autici 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 l»y equal laws, freedom of s|>eech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Oi the prolbuud convictions of the Republican party oi Maiue, 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 oi that great enterprise will comjiel a change, which has already begun, in the management oi 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 oi its old importance. Newspaper associations or new s agents will assume the task of furnishing the daily dispatches, while corresjxmdents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed the system by which our ioreigii news has for years been furnished by steamer, aud already tlie Tribune has its special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We cannot rival the feats o New York joumadsni but we must be governed by the same considerations. We have engaged Regular Correspondent!* in Washington, New York, Boston and Augusta, and occasional coiTes|ioiidcnts at various points throughout the State. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special l))Ki>al(‘lieK 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 shall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shal /have Full and Accurate Market Report*, forwarded by telegraph from al parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review ol the Portland Markets, and an accurate Report of Mniuc Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretofore. There will he NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of tlic Daily Press. For RIGHT DOLLARS A YRAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, The Lars’ost ii» 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 wasto basket for the leavings ot the daily edition. It is designed to he as jparefully made up ns if it were a perfectly ianle jiendont publication. It contains from week to week, tlie most ini|N»riant articles which appear in the daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, An Agricultural Department, To he conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, of Augualn, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor tor some time past to the Press over the signature of “Traxi.” Mr. Drew’s special qualideations for this work need no heralding. The Shipping News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in tlic State Press, as will also the Xtevtew of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market, Iteporis. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent aloue will Ikj w'ell worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and State News, We shall also furnish weekly a page ot k . ^ 4 It 18 I I tA 1Ul*iI Miscellaneous Reading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of bIx columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper in New England. •M It is offered to the public at the low price of DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will bo sent for twenty dollars, and the same discount is offered to larger clubs. --—— — -4-— NOTICES OF TUG PRESS. [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 wc seo m> 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 eniagemeut 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 lor 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 fin evidence of not only tlio prosperity of the Press, but of Portland as well, for of course; the en largement is caused by the increase of advertising favors. The 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 the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2! inches to the length of its col umns. its make-up has also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly impioved appearance. Our coteraporary’s “new clothes” arc somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest arc not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large ' terra, making it now lolly equal in size lo any daily lies spapei in New England. The editor, in his New Year’s Salutatory, show’s that the success of tlie i*per for the past year has been most gratifying, and we are glad ot its prosperity. The return to the original style ol arranging the contents ol the paper, is one ol 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 ami Advertiser—which are our largest New England dailies- wmI il now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of ho good aud reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying, ll shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great tire, but that its | course is still onward—that its busim-ss is in fact in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of ! last year—and that its promise ol commercial great ness is certain to he fulfilled. The Press is among the bestol the New England papers, and its present appearance Is a credit to the State. [From the Hath Times.] ty* Hie 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 eomi>eUtois. I From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.) The Portland Press has increased ils size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, tojlowuig so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes of the great tire, shows that the principles it atfvocates and its otforts to eater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated l»v the public. J be a IditioHul sp cc now obtained will be devoted to details ot important events, and selections from current literature.

Wldle we cannot always agree with ull 01 hia political notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character and culture lie has displayed in iti management, and wish him and the proprietors ever more prosperity in the next year than It has had Le ^ltsuew* is judiciously and carefully selected, an<l a general culture uud literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspaper it lias no su perior- and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed rtor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as it i» generally acknowledged iu that department he ha« no equal iu the State. Tlie enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur eotemporary, and we hope it will never be fouud necessary to curtail the dimensions ot tins enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] iy* The Portland Daily Press conies to us consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ make-up.” This enlargement—so toon after the great tire—to a size equal with the leading Bostou dailies, speaks favorably for the pro.-perity of the city and indicates a good degree of cuterprize on the part of the proprietors. The Press Is edited with ability, lias able contributors, and as the leaiiing liapcr of the dominant party, is a power iu the land. [From the Portland Transcript.] The Daily Press begins the new 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 another arrangement of its editorial and news matter; after all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best.
