Efforts w ere made to take uji tho Louisiana bill, the House bill to provide military govern ment lor the Southern States, aud the bill abol ishing the office of Public Printer. The House bill for the reconstruction of the Government of Louisiana was finally taken up aud read. Mr. Williams said lie had concluded not to offer the amendment of which he had given notice, as he had been convinced that any amendment would endanger the passage of the hill. Mr. Johnson said if the amendment propos ed by the Senator had been adopted it would make it much less objectionable, and although he should not vote for the bill thus amended, he would renew the amendment and call for a division. The amendment proposed is that offered by Mr. Blaine in the House, aud rejected in that body. Mr. Stewart regretted that the Senator from Oregon (Williams) had changed his mind in regard to the amendment and had not offered it as proposed. Tho military bill without that seemed to him was an anomaly. He was still in favor, as soon as it could be obtained, of uni versal amnesty. Air. Wilson moved to amend the amendment so to add to the conditions of restoration of the Southern States the following,—“Aud have provided by the constitution and the laws that all citizens of the United States shall equally possess the right to pursue all law'ful avoca tions and business aud to receive the equal benefits of public schools and have equal pro tection and all the rights of citizens of the Uni ted States in said States.” The debate was coutinued until 4.30 p. m. when a recess was taken.

The bill for military government was taken up and Mr. Wilson’s amendment was disa greed to. At. a late hour the Senate was still in session with no prospect ot an adjournment.

With the opening of the new year we pi esented to the readers of the daily press, a Paper Enlarged t# the else af the largest New England Dailies. lhe 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, 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 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 aud 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 pated. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing is sottlcd 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. 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 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, aud correspondence will regain some thing ot its old importance. Newspai>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 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 we must be governed by the same considerations. We have engaged Regular Carrcspaudcul* in Washington, New ITnrk, 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 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 ot Maine News which readerb here would he 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 oi the Portland markets, and an accurate Report of Maine Skipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EieilT DOLLARS A YEAR ! We expect to furnish a paper, The Largest in the State, and as large as in other States is offered for tenor twelve dollars a year. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a merrf waste basket for the leavings ot the daily edition. It is designed to be as carethlly 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 Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year, Ah Agricultural Department, To be conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, of Augusta, 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 qualifications for this work need no heralding. The Shipping News of the Week Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the He view of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Jlei»oris. To country traders the weekly reftort of Portland prices currrent alone will be well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and State Neivs, Wc shall also furnish weekly a page ot Miscellaneous Beading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper ia IVcw England. It is offered to the public at the low price of i! DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will be sent for twenty dollars, and the same discount is ottered to larger clubs. NOTICES OP THE PREMH. [From the Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We are g!ad to see such evidence of prosjierity. With such papers as Portland now Furnishes we see no need of importing Dailies from Boston aud New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us Horn noticing the enlagement 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 iu ^ew 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 Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about the size ot* the Boston Dailies. This is an evidence of not only the 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 lias also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly unproved appearance. Oiu cotemporary's “new clothes” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large i torm, 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 lor the past year lia<« been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the origiual style of arranging the contents ol the paper, is one ol 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 are our largest New England dailies- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so food and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying, t shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great tire, but dial its course is still onward—that Its business is in fact in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity ot last year and that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. The Press is among the best ot the New England papers, and Its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] The Portland Press routes out greatly enlarg eM,o^Ho..WwkildPt^t.wi.n"W_£iv,ts ““other settler to the question which Is the principal paper in Portland.” It is hound to distance its competitors. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] 1>as illcrea»ed its size equivii 5"" ,ot three or lour columns. This enlargement, billowing bo closely upon its resurrec tion tiom the asheB of the great lire, shows that the principles itadvocates and its otto its to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. The additional space now obtained will be ivom'cunrent Utcrature.I>0rtant eVenU> and B'”ecliulls [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] The Peess^ Among the pai>crs that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are thcPortland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and best (laily in the State ot Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged torm. It is now ftilly equal In size to any daily Paper in New England. In the arrangement oi reading matter It has returned to the original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has been under the editorial man agement ot Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned and reliable, wielding a powerrul influ ence over its patrons on all political matters. He has taken a lair stand, always discussing topics in a dignified taamv-t, yet leaning in all vital"iiwil,. „' Kis party. Wlille we caunut ulwava agree with Ju **! Ills political notions, wc heartily bearwitneas intk* ability, character and culture be has displayed in it» management, and wish him and tlie proprietors even more prosperity in tlie neat year than It has bad in the past. Its news is judiciously anil carefully selecfed, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes i|s contents. As a good lamily newspaper it has no su perior: aud while Mr. Lincoln occupies tlie 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 >be Stato. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for . ur cotemporary, and we hope It will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions ot this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er iblv enlarged and with a return to its old style of make-up.” This enlargement—90 soon after the great tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston dailies, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprise on the Wt* proprietors. The Press is edited with ability, lias able contributors, and as the lea.ling paper of the dominant party, is a power in the land. I From the Portland Transcript] Ihe Daily Press begins tlie new year much en large.! in size; we are glad to m e such an evidence o! the prosperity of this excellent journal. The Press has swung around tlie 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.
