With tho opening of the new year we presented to the readers of the DAILY PRESS, A Paper Enlarged la the aise of the largest New England Dailies. Tlie enlargement of our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of between three and four columns to Resize. 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 tlie Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible for the controlling party of tho State to remain voiceless in this city. 1 he Press will continue to defend the principles of the Liberal party of America. The w ar has closed one great cycle in our national history—the cyclo during which aristocracy at the South and democra cy at tlie North grew up side by side, a period ot jealousy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms and tlie 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 antic! pated. The Phess will insist upon a settlement which w'ill secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing is settled till it is settled right. We must have de mocracy at tlie 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 tho profound convictions of tlie Republican party oi Maine, the Phess will remain a faithful exponent. We have engaged Krgnlnr t orrcapoiiilenM in Wa«hington, New York, Boaton and Anguaia, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the Stale. During the French Expo sition wo shall putilish Regular Letters lrom Paris, Where our Correspondent has already arrived. To the people of Maine, and especially to people who have business relations with Portland, we hope to make the Pr.ESS more valuable than any paper published outside of the State can possibly be. Wc shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, hut we shall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Rally Summary of Maine News which readers here would bo sorry to miss. We slial have Full and Accurate market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from nl’ parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review ol the Portland Markets and an accurate Report of maino Shipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will bo published as j horetotore. There will he NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of tho Daily Press.

[From the Christian Mirror.] The Press has been enlarged since New Year’s. We are glad ft) see such evidence ol' prosperity. With such papers as Portland now furnishes we see no need of importing Dailios from Boston and New York. [From the Portland Price Current.] The Press.—The crowded state of our columns last week prevented us troin noticing tho enlagemont 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 for the money. [From the Gardiner Home Journal.] Enlarged.—The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st inst., to about the size of tho 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 Portland Transcript.] The Daily Press begins the new year much en larged in size; we aro glad to see such an evidence oi the prosperity of this excellent journal. Tho Press lias swung around the circle to another arrangement of its editorial and news matter; alter all, the old second and third page arrangement, presenting edi torials and nows together was the best. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] 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 ol reading 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 and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good fhmily newspaper it lias no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the 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 the State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur coteiuporary, 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 tho addition or 2£ inches to the length of its col umns. Its make-up has also been changed again, and oil the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “ new clothes” are >omewliat 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 on largo 1 form, making it now fully equal in size to any , daily newspaper in New England. The editor, in his Now Year’s Salutatory, shows that the success of the paper for tho past year ha* been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original style of arranging the contents ol the paper, is one of tnc most agreeable leaturca 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 arc our largest New England dailies- and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the Press is gratifying. Il shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great fire, but that ifs course is still onward—that Its business is in laei in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity of last year—ami that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to be ih’filled. The Press is among’ the best of the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] K3F* The Portland Press comes out greatlv enlarg ed, and we susi»ect it now gives another settfer to the question which is “ the principal paper in Portland.” It is bound to distance its competitors. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. 1.] The Portland Press has increased its size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurrec tion from the ashes ot the great fire, shows that the principles it advocates and its cllbrts to cater to the literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. The a Iditional sp ce now obtained will In* uevoted to details of important events, and selections from current literature. [From the Worcester (Maes.,) Spy.] The Pre^s.— Among the paper#tliat commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest ami best daily in the State ot Maine, and the latter we have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. [From tho Bangor Times.] The Portland Daily Press comes to us consid er ibly enlarged and with a return to its old style of “ mase-up.” This enlargement—so soon after tho great tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston doilies, speaVs favorably for the prosperity of the city and indicates a good degree of enterprize on the part of tho proprietors.
