THE PRESS For 1867. With the opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PRE88, A Paper KnlnrgrU to the size of the large*! New Kuglaud Dailies. The enlargement of our daily edition in equivalent to the addition of between three and four eoluinns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails ot important events, which we lieve heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay. such as we Lave 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 tabliidied primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible for the controlling party of the State to remain voiceloss in this city. The IPress 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 and democra cy at the North grew up side by side, a period of jealous} 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 longor 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 right. We must have de mocracy at the South as well ns at the North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage, ot the profound convictions of the Republican party ol Maine, (foe Press will remain a faithful exponent. We have engaged Regular Correspondent* in Washington, New York, Boston and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stato. During the French Expo sition we shall publish Regular Letters from Paris, Where our Correspondent lia* alroady arrived. To the peoplo 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 tlic same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we thall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Roily Summary of Maine News which reader, here would he sorry to mlu. We ahal have full and Accurate market Reports, fcrwardod by telegraph from al' parts of the United States, from Canada, and Irom England. A weekly Review ot the Portland Markets and an accurate Report of Dlninc Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretofore. • There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For EIOHT DOLLARS A YEAR t We expect to furnish a paper, The Largest in the State, and as large as in other States is offered for tan or twelve dollars a year. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings at the daily edition. It is designed to be as carefully made up as if it were a perfectly inde pendent publication. It contains from week to week, the most important articles which appeal' 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 be conducted by the Ber. WlIiLIAM A. DREW, of Augusta, a voteran 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 Review of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Bettor is. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent alone will bo well worth the subscrip tll/u price. In addition to n onroful Digest of General and State News, We shall also furnish weekly a page ot Miscellaneous Beading for the family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, ot six columns each, and is the hargrot Weekly Paper in New England* It is offered to the public at the low price of 9 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 offered to larger clubs. -—--— NOTICES OF THE 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 we see no 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 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 iournal of Maine, and equal to any in Now 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 of 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 increaso its prosper ity. [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 ot this excellent journal. The Press has swung aronnd 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. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.1 The Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. It is now fully 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. Its news is judiciously and caroftilly selected, and a general culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspaper it has no su perior; and white Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will bo no lack of local news, as It is generally acknowledged in 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 bo 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 the length of its col umns. Its make-up has also been changed again, and on the whole it presen ted a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotcmporary’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 » form, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newsjMiper in New England. The editor, in his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper for the past year ha* been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original stylo ot arranging the contents oi the paper, is one of 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 evidenco of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ot vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great lire, but that its course is still onward—that its business is in fact in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity ot last year—and that Its promise oi 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 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 competitors. I From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has increased its size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. 'Illis enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes ot the great tire, shows that tlio i principles it advocates and its efforts to cater to the literary tastes ot its readers are appreciated by the public. Ibe additional sp ice now obtained will be devoted to details of important events, and selections

from current literature. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] The Press.—Among the papers that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest sinus of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and best daily m the State ot Maine, and the latter wc have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [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—so soon after the great lire—to a size equal with the leading dailies, speaks favorably for the prot^erity of me city and indicates a good degree of enteruciae on tltf part of the proprietors. The Press is «£tu1 wdtji ability, has able contributors, and as two loadiug |wjl«r of Um> Jomliwurt <»«jmt-r Mm) twtl. WANTED.
