The present year will probably witness the exten sion of the telegraph round the world. Tha 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 wU be registered from day to day by the tel 1 egraph. The expense of special dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too great for single newspAi>ers, 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, ,e*plw*afh>fl».aiyl illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph has already ‘destroyed the system by which out foreign news hafc for yEars been furnished by steamer, and already the Tribune fink its special correspondents established iii almost every capital in Europe.

We slial have Full and Accurate Market Report*, forwarded by telegraph from al' parts of the United States, from Canada, aud irom England.

(From tie Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press apgared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition u!2J inches to the length of its col umns.
