THE PRESS. Thursday Morning;, Marcn 14,1857. The Tlaiar State Frew, Published to-day, contains Election News from New Hampshire and Maine; a synopsis of Mayor Stevens’s Inaugural Address; an ac count of the loss of the tjchoonei M. F. Var nam of Bucksporl; the proceedings of the Fortieth Congress during the week; General Butler's speech in favor ol Impeachment; ab stracts of the Bankrupt law and the new Tar ill on wool and woollens; the latest Mexican news; details of the Feulau ltelxdiion in Ireland, as received by steamer and telegraph; a capital story selects! from Robert Dale Owen’s “Foot falls**; together with the usual variety ot for eign and domestic news, amusing miscellany, agricultural matter, shipping news, market re ports, &c., &c. The New Ifi»»|>«hire Rleeliou*. Tho result in tlie “Granite" Stato is most gratifying. The Democrats calculated upon doing some big things. Harriman was to bo “literally roasted alive,” and tho State was to be restored to Democratic rule, as the first gun of a great Conservative revolution. But— “The best laid schemes ’o mice an’ men Gang alt aglcy.’ Tlie result shows a complete Republican vic tory. The gross slanders got up by Copper heads against the Republican candidate for Governor havo been most signally rebuked.— Harriman will have at least :i,000 majority.— Both branches of the legislature will be over whelmingly Republican; so will the Council. The Congressional delegation will bo a unit, all threeol the Republican candidates being elected by handsome majorities. This is gloiy enough for one day. We predict that tho Dem ocrats have done their best; that hereafter their sun will decline till totally obscured. I.otter front the National Capital. Washington, March 11, 1867. To the Editor lit'the Press: No adjournment has been arrived at. The House, as you are aware, voted to adjourn U day. The Senate decided not to concur, and were again in caucus to-day, and decided net to take action on the subject. Daily attempts are being made to bring in a hill on general legislative matters. The Speaker withholds the House from acting on the appointment if committees. The probabilities now are that an adjournment will be had in about ten days or two weeks, and that when it does come it w ill lie for a recess until October. Several motives are acting in bringing alaiut this result: the principal of these being the well understood, though of course not publicly expressed, opposition of the Senators from the manufacturing and commercial States,against impeachment. In tho several caucuses on Thursday, it is reported that every New Eng land Senator, except Mr. Sumner,declared his opposition to further action unless the Presi dent should commit some further acts which increase the necessity. The National Banking interest as represent ed by Mr. Sherman, who, it Is whispered, shapes his policy by the views of Jay Cooke, was in strong opposition. Of course New York went the same way. A majority of the new Senators are in favor of pressing the mat ter; Cole of California, Drake of Missouri and Thayer and Tipton of Nebraska, being espe cially decided. The Kansas Senators are un certain; Pomeroy being inclined to follow New England lead, while tho new Senator, Ross, is thought to lie largely under the influ ence of his old commander, now a prominent lawyer and conservative politician here. The fear is ot course a derangement of business interests by tlie convulsions which it is believ ed will result from the attempt. There is another reason, also, in some minds. It is by no means worthy, yet no caretul looker on here can foil to see that it is an operative cause in bringing about results. What 1 al lude to are certain Presidential aspirations en tertained or sustained by prominent public men. Senator Wade’s election to preside over the Senate, aud the contingency of his temporary occupation of the White House should impeachment be pressed,interfere with the slates already arranged by certain Western politicians, as well as with those of the friends of military candidates. There are high judicial and legislative officers w ho would much rather let “the impeachment slide” in the pres ent position than not. Though it is doubtless true that the public mind will be likely to reach the conclusion that a long recess is an abandonment of impeach ment, yet it is not certain that this is a cor rect view. The Judiciary Committee, who are charged, and are conversant with the investi gation, do not hesitate to deny any such idea. It is not their intention to sit all through the summer. Ashley, Butler, Covode, Bogan and others, will urge earlier action, but they do not believe the investigation a failure. There are many very curious rumors afloat as to the discoveries made by different com mittees, all of which evidence, in so for as it bears upon the actions of the Executive will he transferred to the Judiciary Committee.— Unless something occurs not now dreamed of, the 40tli Congress will take a recess until Oc tober next. That is the earliest probable date of reasseuihiiug, and in all probability it will he later. A FAITHFUL PUBLIC SERVANT COBKIALLV REC OGNIZED. There is no public man out of Congress, more generally admired, nor more early en quired for than the one-armed soldier that Maine gave to the Union.—Oliver O. Howard is not a great man, unless he is great in his goodness and quiet, simple honesty of purpose and conviction. Not prejudiced in his favor, when leaving the army and the Preedmen’s Bureau service, I came to Washington some sixteen inon>hs since, I have watched bis pub lic course and daily life with increasing inter est and admiration. I repeat that General Hqward is not a man of large brain; it is rath er an intense and fine one. He has done the country and the cause an immense service, not only by the opportunities his position gave him, but by the admirable tact with which its duties have been discharged, and the thorough honesty of tlie growth which has been visible to all. It was told of the General last winter that he said to a delegation of the leading col ored men of the land that he was in the posi tion of a general who found his outer lines seized by treachery in camp and turned against him, and that in consequence he was fighting a battle of interior lines, falling slow ly back after disputing each to his last posi tion. He has outflanked “King Andrew” and that too without sacrifice of honorable convic tions. A proof of the appreciation in which his services are held was given in the debate on Saturday, upou the joint resolution to appro priate one million dollars for the relief of the destitute and starving poor of the South General Howard, in a letter to Mr. Wade, writes: i' rom official sources, and confirmed by gen tlemeu from different sections of the South, my estimate is thirty-two thousand six hundred and sixty-two whites, and twenty-four thou saml two hundred and thirty-eight colored peo ple, making in all fifty-six thousand nine hun dred who will need food from some source be ore the next crop can relieve them. The num ber ot rations for all per month, one million seven hundred and seven thousand. For five months, the probable time required, eight mil lion five hundred and thirty-five thousand ra tions at twenty-five cents per ration the esti mated cost, will lie $2,133,750. Of this sun, an appropriation has already been made for the an1d!v't'-thH the ara"uut: of 8«25.ihm, leaving snin^i 'fjonal sum required of 81,508,750. This sum 1 deem sufficient to meet the extreme * b? ,aillIr« ot the crop, and oterv Th re rud to 111 th0 resolution ot in qmry The present appropriation is ample, provuled the issues be confined to the classes named 1" the Freedineu’s Bureau act; but the anuitional sum mimed will be required sliould tne issue bo exteuded as contemplated iu the loregoing estimate. In tbe debate, nearly every Senator spoke, and most in favor of the appropriation. All of them expressed the utmost confidence in Gen. Howard. Reverdy Johnson said— “I am sure I speak the seutimeut of the en tire country, North and South, when Isay that there was not during the war an “filter who more zealously and gallantly informed his duty upon the field or who has since diseW. ml with greater skill and fidelity the trust con fided to him by Congress; and he tells us what we must have known below, that no /natter how large the appropriation, not a dollar of it will be expended unless he finds it absolutely necessary ill order to save Americau citizens from death by starvation.” Mr. Freliughuysen of New Jersey made this fine comparison, which deserves a place here “All that has been said in reference to the Commission is true. The Old World had its Howard, who braved the contagions of dun geons, who met all the perils that philanthro py eould invite him to, and we have got a one nhu™.1°ldl®r e" brave an<11)0 prudent and so {mimrednamVh^bear^8 h0“°r eVe" 10 tbe Senator Stewart „f Nevada gaM; It any ottioer of tho r* a difficult task has hL„ vcrument aP°n whom ed his duty faithfully a, 'FI’l?8ftd.haa discliarg General Howard.” mscnminately it is Senator Sprague in urtrino .... Ssisarksii£r«s,arsi!i5 Howard, and 1 do not think there will be auy mistake on our part if we should ameml the resolution so as to comply with his suggestion.” This well deserved praise must not only be grateful to the General but pleasant to the peo ple of tliht State, whose volunteers he com manded anil which holds his record as a proud one, honorable to himself and worthy its own loyal renown. ANOTHER RECONSTRUCTION MEASURE, The House to-day passed a bill intended to take from the rebel organizations the power to remould themselves and to provide by means of a regis'ry oi voters and a convention called by the Military Commanders, that there shall be unstained loyalty to drape the august pro portions of the civil governments wo are kere atter to recognize. Since the passage of the Military bill it has bccoim* daily more evident that Rome machi nery utliei than the rebel organization must be put into the hands of the commanders. The Alexandria election pointed that moral most, effectually, while the violent comments of the unconstructed press, “adorn the tale” most ef fectually. A resolution was introduced on Wednesday in the House by Judge Kelly. It was, I be lieve drafted liy Gen. Butler, and set forth the the necessity of these things: 1st. A register of authorized voters to be made under the direction of the commanders. I’d. A security of the vote by balllot. In Virginia, South Carolina, and other States tho voting is viva voce. It is very palpable that tli:s afforded opjiortnuities of terrorizing over the poor. 3d. The calling of an election for delegates to a Constitutional Convention by the District Commanders; and fth. The requirement that the Constitu tion should before presentation by Cougress be ratilied by a majority of the registered voters. This resolution was passed as instructions to the Judiciary Committee. Thehiil passed to day by the House was the result. It provides for the accomplishment of the results by sim ple provisions. There is now a fair prospect that all these states will be before Congress next winter with clean constitutions and loyal representatives. The President will without doubt veto the hill. He however says that all measures shall he executed, for which performance of a duty we ought of course to be thankful. Spectatob.

Nearly every pub lic bar in the city is closed, with the exception of those connected with the hotels, and a large majority of the wholesale dealers have put up their shutters and locked their front doors. We shall watch with interest to see how this af fects the amount of drunkenness on the streets, the number of arrests, and the business of the police courts. Here is the test, after all. Mr. Robert Lincoln has just formed a law partnership with J. Young Scammon, Esq., of Chicago. —The New York World draws a parallel be tween George Washington and Robert E. Lee, of course to the disparagement of the former. But Washington’s birthday will continue to be celebrated. —The negro vote in Alexandria was rejected, it is now said, under a false impression that the law would not take effect till the military com manders were appointed, and not from any purpose to nullify the law itself. The negro vote will not be rejected again, there or else where in the lale rebel States. —The number of bills j passed at the recent session of the Illinois General Assembly foots up twelve hundred and sixty-three.

The suggestion is a good one,and is precisely in keeping with the custom of our State legislature for many years past—a cus tom not likely to be overidden by any discrim inative election. —John Vau Buren once won a suit, at which the opposite party was so much enraged that he declared that whenever he met “Prince John,” he would denounce him. They en countered each other at an oyster counter. The man addressed him: “Mr. Van Buren, is there a cause so bad or an individual so iu fainous that your services cannot be obtained?” t cannot say,” replied John, swallowing an other oyster, and stooping over, he asked in an undertone that everybody could hear: “What have you been doing?” —A clergyman was reproving an old Indian for liiB cruel conduct toward them that had of fended him. “V ou should love your enemies,” said the minister. “1 do love my enemies,” re torted the son of nature. “No such thing,” re turned the clergyman, “you don’t love your enemies. ’ “I ilo.” “Who are the enemies you love?” “Rum and cider.” Cana by Bibos in Italy.—A New York pa per, speaking of the importation ot Canary liirds from Germany, says the following sight, was seen in Florence, Italy, in 1801, by a lady and gentleman belonging in New York: hmk the- Vrincil‘al street they over bad whieb ,Wl"‘ “ lou». whil' i" In* side to the nil*16 ^as .I,inving from one side io the other in what they thought a tsitssn afer 5 along, and the man waved his whip "in a pe culiai manner, when the little birds all went 1 I'd Sidewalk until the carriage passed t0ok 10 the street again.

In the casoot State v.

The liquor and vessels seized a short time since, on the premises of Patrick Dennan, were declared for feited to the city, no person appearing to claim the same. Fire Alarm.—The telegraphic system oi fire alarm was tested yesterday in presence of the Mayor, Aldermen, Couucilmen, Engineers of the Fire Department and others, and prov ed satisfactory—the gongs in the different en gine houses striking the alarm simultaneously; that in the police office not being accurately adjusted did not sound. Afterwards an alarm of fire was sounded from box 26, corner of Chestnut aud Oxford streets, in order to see how quick the engines would arrive on the spot. The Casco was there in two minutes af the alarm sounded; the Cumberland was there in five minutes, and the Portland in six min utes. The members of the Machigonne say that their gong did not sound when the others did. The locations of the fire alarm boxes are as follows: Bpx No. 12, Portland Co.’s Office; 13, Engine House Congress street, Munjoy; 14, corner Washington and Oxford; 16, corner Adams and Mountfort; 16, Grand Trunk Depot; 17, corner Congress and India; 18 corner Franklin aud Cumberland; 21, corner Franklin and New bury; 23, corner Market and Commercial; 24, Engiue House corner Market and Cougress; 25, corner Middle and Exchange; 26, corner Chestnut and Oxford; 27, corner Union and Fore; 31, Corner Preble and Congress; 32,cor ner Portland and Hanover; 31, corner South and Spring; 35, corner Maple and Commer cial, *; 36, corner High and Danforth; 37, Eu gine House, Congress near Oak strqet; 41, cor ner State and Spring; 42, corner Danforth aud Brackett; 43, corner Commercial and Clark; 45, Engine House, Bracke.t near Pine street; 46, corner Spring aud Emery; 51, corner Brack ett and Vaughan. * Box No. 35 will be temporarily located cor ner Maple and York streets. Peat.—The Buttonwood Peat Company are about commencing the manufacture of Peat for luel at their bog, situated in Kenuebunk port, Maine, within a few hundred yards of Ward’s wharf, from where it can be shipped to any part of the world. This bog is situated on an elevation of about one hundred feet above tide water, and contains some fifty acres. It is a well known lact that prepared peat is the best and cheapest luel now in use, and is being used more than formerly in the manu facture of iron, and for steam purposes it is a fortune in itself. One ton of peat will go as far as a ton of the best Anthracite coal. As a fuel it is far more healthful than coal, much cleaner, gives a more intense heat, and the ashes can he sold at a good price in return. The peat from this bog burns like Canuell coal, and has been pronounced by those who have examined it, to he the best known, some pro nouncing it coal. There does not seem to be at present a more favorable investment for regular paying stock, than the shares of this company, from the fact that so desirable an article of fuel can be pre pared at a point so easy of access. Samples can be seen at the office of J. E. Dow, Presi dent of the company, who will be pleased to give any information regarding peat. Attempt at Suicide.—William H. Stephen son, the notorious negro thief, who was sen tenced on Tuesday to ten years imprisonment in the State Prison, and who, after sentence was pronounced, declared he “ had rather go to hell than the State prison,” made two at tempts on that day and night to commit sui cide. The first attempt was by trying to open a vein in his arm with a broken pair of scissors. He was discovered in this, and was afterwards closely watched. Late that night he took his scarf, tied it around his neck, then fastened the ends to the upper part of the grating, and then threw' himself forward. The watch that Sher iff Parker had placed over him, discovered the attempt, and gave an alarm. Stephenson was unconscious when cut down, and it required considerable effort to restore him. Five min utes later discovery would have ended his life. Committee op Solicitation.—The follow ing is the Committee of Solicitation for sub scriptions for life membership in the Portland Institute and Public Library, as appointed by the Chairman and Secretary, according to the vote of the corporators passed at the recent meeting: William Willis, L. D. M. Sweat, Dr. S. C. Gordon, Rev. W. H. Fcnn, Albert W. Bradbury, Edward M. Rand, Lewis B. Smith, George F. Shepley, Rev. A. Dalton, H. B. Brown, James H. Smith, Andrew J. Chase, Enoch Knight, Chas. Akers, Albert H. Waite. We understand that some of the prominent memhers favor an important modification of the by-laws so as to admit any person to mem bership on equal terms with the life members on the payment of $5 annually. Portland Theatre.—Among the company already engaged for the opening of the above named place of amusement, under the manage ment of Smith, Hadley & Co., we notice the name of William E. Sheridan as leading man and stage manager. Mr. Sheridan is a Boston boy, and made his first appearance in 1858, at the Howard Atlimeum in Boston, since which time he has risen rapidly in the profession to the position he at present occupies. lie was connected with Pike’s Opera House, Cincin nati, from the time of its opening to the date of its destruction by fire, one year since. He has just completed a very successful engage ment in St. Louis and the West generally, and is now performing at the Olympic Theatre, New York. We hail with pleasure the bright prospect before us of possessing at last a com pany first class in all its organization, and pre dict for the enterprising management a com plete success iu its undertaking. OuTtviTTiNG A Lawter’—One of our up town lawyers made an agreement with a couple of smart lads to keep his sidewalks free from snow during the winter, agreeing to pay them a certain sum fixed upon, for the season. After the first storm in March the boys were on hand, and, having cleared the snow from his walks, kuoekod at the door and demanded the pay. “But,” said our lawyer, “you agreed to do it by the job.” “So we. did,” replied the lads, “but for the Winter only, and this is Spring, which has nothing to do with our bargain.” The law yer saw the force of the argument, and shelled out the pay. Personal.—Prof. John K. Paine arrived in New York on Tuesday, from Germany, whith er he has been for the purpose of bringing out the Mass he hail composed. It was produced in Berlin, with the greatest success, the chorus consisting of upwards of 200 voices. The Roy al family and all the li ailing Professors of mu sic were present, and expressed their approba tion of the composition and of the perform ance. The author was called before the audi ence several times during the performance. It was pronounced the greatest success ever achieved by an American. Prof. Paine is a son ot the late Mr. Jacob Paine, of this city, aud his uumerous friends here will foci highly grat ified at his success. Natural Histohy Lectube.—Our readers will remember that the first lecture by Mr. E. S. Morse, on Natural History, arranged for last week, and postponed on account of bad weather, is to be given this evening at the ves try of the Congress Square Universalist Church. All who take an interest in this class of sub jects may expect much euioyment from the course. We desire to mention that the price of single t:ckets to these lectures is 25 cents, not 50 cents, as erroneously stated in the ad vertisement. Wooden Weddinu.—A large number of the friends of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Pickard took possession of their house on Winter street, during their temporary absence last Tuesday evening, and by a most perfectly arranged sur prise party, celebrated the fifth anniversary of their wedding. The wooden presents were nu merous and valuable. There were no set speeches, and no mock ceremony; but it was an informal social gathering of tlie greatest in terest to all who participated in it. One of the best features of the affair was the excellent music, both vocal and instrumental. The re freshments were provide 1 by the uniuvited guests. Social Levee. The Methodist society at Saccamppa held a Union Levee on Tuesday evening, wh'cli proved every way successful.— The hall was literally crowded, and the exer cises were interesting and amusing, especially the sermon by Elder Cilley, of Southern Indi ana, and also his appeal for funds to complete the church now in process of erection. His ef forts in this direction were so successful, his discourse and the style of delivery so much admired by tlie audience, that we shall expect to hear that if he is not stationed over the church when completed, he will at least be oc casionally invited to occupy the desk. Accident.—George Cushman, a Canadian, one of the stevedores in the employ of the Montreal Ocean Steamship Company, while stepping yesterday morning from steamship St. Daviil to tlie wharf, slipped and fell between the ship and the wharf, striking on the fender of the vessel. He was taken up and conveyed to his residence on Washington street, and at tended to by Dr. Robinson. He sustained some internal injuries which it is feared may prove fatal. Minstrels. — Skiff & Gaylord’s Minstrel Troupe will give the first of the two entertain ments in this city at Deering Hall this even ing. “Sherman’s March to the Sea,” a grand musical panorama, is among the entertain ments. The Sunday Advertiser.—This sheet has become one of tbe established institutions of our city. Every Sunday morning it appears, filled with choice sketches, stories, news of the day, and telegraphic dispatches up to a late hour Saturday evening. Subscribers are sup pi ied by carriers. Do not forget the grand ball to be given at Union Hall, Ferry Village, this evening. Good music, will be in attendance, aud a good time may be anticipated. The steam tug H. H. Day will leave Portland at 7 aud 8 o’clock, and will leave Ferry Village for Portland after the dauce. Eastern Express Company.—This compa ny has leased the lower floor and basement of tbe Atlinameum building on Plum street, which, besides affording them spacious rooms for the transaction ol business, is conveniently situated for the mercantile interests of the city. _ Jacob McLei.lan, Esq., Treasurer of the Relief Fund, acknowledges tbe receipt of $117.50 from F. Macdonald, Agent of New V'ork & Schuylkill Coal Company, the sauie being an allowance on cargo of coal purchased for the use of sufferers by the fire of July 4tli. Festival and Levee.—The Festival and Levee of the Mountfort Street Church will be repeated this evening at same place. Let all go who wish to have a pleasant time aud aid a good object. Elliot & McCallar offer their stock of boots and shoes very cheap for ten days. See advertisement. State Items. —Don’t our friend of the Bath Times as sume a little too much when he intimates that the Governor, to keep his oath of office inviol ate, is restricted to a single individual in mak ing a selection of a State Constable? AVe dare say Mr. Nye maybe admirably qualified for the place, but if Governor Chamberlain should think some other mau etjuaelly well qualified, we hardly think our Bath neighbor would charge him with disregard of his official oath. —Patents were granted last week to John A. Hooper of South Berwick, for improved nut meg grater; N. AV. Bonney of Lewiston, as signor to self and O. Davis of same place, for improved barbers’ chair;‘L. F. Rollins of Ban gor, assignor to self and James Nealy, Jr., of same place, for improved mop wringer; F. B. Shaw of Boston, Mass., assignor to Silas S. Shaw of Bath for iingrovement in carriage guard; Ezra Staples and AVm. AVr, Gould of Skowhegan, for improved car coupling. —The Price Current says that a noticeable feature of the habits of Damariscotta is the al most universal custom of leaving all their store keys in their doors, attached to which is a red woolen braid about six inches in length, indicating that “the store is open.’ —Preparations are rapidly going forward for commencing the building of Memorial Hall at Colby University, AVaterville, in the Spring. —The Houlton Times tells the following sto ry of a horse in this city: “A certain M. D. of Portland, owns a horse worth having. He re sides nearly half a mile from where the horse is stabled. The doctor drives up to his own door, drops the reins over the dasher, and goes into the house, and the horse, if told to, starts for the stable, to do which he must pass through several streets, among which is Con gress street, the principal thoroughfare of tbe city; when he meets a crowd of teams he waits paitedtly until they have passed, and then moves on.

The Somerset Central sold theirs some years ago. —The Auson Advocate says Mr. Asher Cleveland ol Embden was killed while at work for Mr. Hartly Green In the logging swamp on Dead River, on Thursday last, by a falling limb while chopping or barking a tree on the ground. A limb of the tree which had just been cutdown became detached and lodged in the branches of another tree, and while Mr. Cleveland was at work on the tree below, the detached limb came down and struck him on the head. He lived about two hours. Mr. Cleveland leaves a wife and family to mourn his loss. The Argus learns that the house, barn and out buildings of Mr. John C. Stewart of Farm ington were entirely consumed by lire on Tues day morning, together with a quantity of hay and 18 bead of cattle. The buildings were sit uated about two miles from Farmington vil lage, and were the best farm buildings in town. The tire was undoubtedly the work of an in cendiary. Loss estimated at $10,000. Partially insured. At the same time Mr. Stewart’s buildings were burning the barn of Mr. Hora tio G. Eaton, about half a mile distant, was burned, together with a quantity of hay, two horses, two cows and some other stock. Loss from $1,000 to $1,500. Partially insured. This tire was also the work of an incendiary. — We do not know who “Beaumont” is, and we cannot publish anonymous articles without some responsible authority for them. —Says the Anson Advocate, the lumbermen arc having a nice winter for their operations, and the teams are all said to be doing well. Mr. M. Steward, Esq., of this place, is operat ing on the upper Dead river waters, and has employed in the woods some 100, men 40 or 50 horses and as many oxen, engaged in hauling pine and spruce from the stump. Add to this the number of men and teams necessary to haul the supplies and drive the logs to market, expense of feeding men and teams, outfits of sleds, chains, harnesses, camp fixings, &c., &c. and it looms up a big business.

With the opening of the now year we presented a) the readers ot the DAILY PRESS, I Paper Enlarged fa the size of the large*! New England Dai lie*. The enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent o the addition of between tbrce and four column* to Is size. This additional space will l*e devoted to de ails ot important events, whieh we have heretofore teen obliged to give in brief, and to selections from urrcnt literature, grave or gay. *nch as we have afely been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged will n, its past history will show. The Press was «* ablished primarily to represent the Republican par y of Maine. It was impossible tbr .the controlling >arty of the State to remain voiceless in tills eity. Ilie Press will continue to defend the principles *>f ;he Liberal party of America. The war has closed >ne great cycle in our national history—the cycle luring which aristocracy at the South and democra cy at the North grew up side by side, a period of ealousy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms md the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin :iple. We have entered on a state of transition, w hich cents likely to prove longer than most ot ns antic! »atcd. The Press will insist upon a settlement vhich will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing s settled till it is settled right. We must have de nocracy at the South as well as at the North—equal ights tbr all secured by equal laws, freedom of Ipeeeh, fVeedom of the press, Impartial suffrage. Ot he profound convictions of the Republican parly of Vlaine, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. We have eugaged Regular Correspondent* iu WanbinglM^ New York, Rto-ion aud Auguntu, Mid occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stale. During the French L x pe tition we shall publish Regular Letters from Paris, Where our Correspondent has already arrived. To the people of Maine, and especially to people who have business relations with Portlaud, we b«i»e 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 sjiecial dispatches from Washington, but we shall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would he sorry to miss. Wo glial have Pull and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al' parts of the United States, from Camuia, and irom England. A weekly Review oi the Portland Markets, and on accurate Report of Maine Nhippiug, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published a& heretofore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE BRICE Of the Daily Pbess. For BIGHT DOLLARS A 1KAB ! Wo expect to furnish a pt.per, The Largest in the State, an<l as large as in other Slates is offered ft>r ten or twelve dollars a year. ---- THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere wasfo basket for the leavings ot the daily edition. It is designed to bo as carefully made up as if it were a perfectly inde pendent publication.

WILLIAM A. DB£W, of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and (hvorably known in Maine, and a contributor tor sometime past to the Press over the signature of “Traxi." Mr. Drew's Alieciol qualifications for this work uced no heralding. The Shipping News of the Week Will be publisliod without abridgment in the Statb Press, us will also the Review of the Bortland Markets, And the Brighton Market Bejtorls. To country traders the weekly rejiort ot Portland prices currrent alone will be well worth the subscrip tion price.

[From the Christian Mirror.[ The Press has been enlarged since New Year's. Wo are glad to see such evidence of prosperity. With such pai*eiH as Portland now furnishes we see uo need of importing Dailies from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Pkkss.—The crowded state ofour columns last week prevented us trom noticing the cidagenient ami re-arrangement of the columns of the Daily Press, which in its present enlarged tbnn, and witn its excellent editorial management, is certainly the leading journal of Maine, and equal to any in New England; espeeially when taken into consideration the amount of interesting reading matter that is •laily l unnshed lor the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.) The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about the size of the Boston Dailies, llus is aiii evideuce of not only the prosperity of the Press, but oi Portland as well, for of course the en largement is caused by the im rease of advertising tayors. 1 he 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 prosja-r lty. [From the Portland Transcript.) The Daily Press begins the new year much en arged in sue; we are glad to we such an evideuce ol the prosperity ot this excellent journal. The Press has swung around the circle to another arrangement i>r its editorial and news matter; after all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and news together was the best. [From tbe Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.) The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning In an enlarged form. It is now tully equal in size to any daily paper iu New England. In the arrangement ol readiug matter it has returned to the original style, which we think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Its news is judiciously And carefully selected, and a general culture aud literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor's chair there will be uo lack of local news, as it is generally acknowledged in that department he lu&s 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. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of 2* inches to tho length of its col umns. Its make-up has also Inen changed again, and on the whole it presented a decide<lly improved appearance. Our eotemporary’s “ new clothes** are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.1 The Daily Press appears this morning in tut en-» large i form, 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 i»ast year has been most gratify ing and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents ot the paper, is one of the most agreeable features of the change. I From the Bangor Whig.) — The Portland Press was enlarged ort the 1st of January to about the size of the Bostor. Daily Pout and Advertiser-which are our largest F,ew England <lailies--and it now makes a very hand' ,ome api*ar 555* 1’118 e.v*d«nce ot prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Pro ss is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ot vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great tire, but that its course is still onward— that its busi ness is in tart in creasing, notwithstanding the an parent calamity ot last year—and that its promise ot commercial great ness is certain to be fulfilled. 'Abe Press is among the best of the New England po jHirs, and its present appearance is a credit to the Sb itc. [From the BaVu Times. 1 iy“ The Portland Press comes out greatly enlurg another wttbr to the question which is the prfueirml lkancr m Portl*Liid ** It la bound to distance it* tSmpetitori. (From tlie I.owts>on Journal, Jan. l.J i .J?1* Press has inrn-ased Its also tstnlra lent to an addition *0f three or four columns. This enlargement, folh>v,jll(, m closely upon its resurrec tion from the ash* sot the great tire, shows that tho principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the Sublic. The additional sp ice now obtained will he evoted to «'ietallu of Important events, and selections from current literuture. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.) Thb Pubs*.—Among the pa|>crs that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of Ercrsperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford iveniug Press. The former is the largest and best daily in the State ot Maine, und the latter wo have Ion;* regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. . (From the Bangor Times.) I he Portland Daily Press t omes to us consld er »blv enlarged ami with a return to its old style of make-up.** Tlds enlargement—so soon after the great lire—to a size equal with the leading B«»ston dailies, speaks fhvorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprise on the part of the proprietors. The Tress Is edited with ability, has able contributors, aud as tho hailing paper of the dominant party, is a power in the Und.
