JOHN T. GILMAN, recently of the Bath Times,
JOSEPH B. HALL, of the Aroostook Herald.
The Portland Daily Press is intended to be
an enterprising, vigorous and lire Daily Morning
Paper, containing the latest and fullest news by mail
and telegraph.
Is a large, well-filled, carefully edited, and neatly
printed weekly pajier, intended specially for general
circulation throughout the State.
Both of the above named papers will labor to
inculcate, in no dictatorial spirit, sound political prin
ciples and to promote the material interests of the
State, and of the City of Portland as its interests
twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the
Politically, the Drear will give an earnest, cordial,
and generous support to the administration of Abra
ham Lincoln, who in little more than one year, has
indcllibly impressed himself upon the nation's heart
as an incorruptible patriot, an inflexible Chief Mag
istrate, and an honest man; the ability of whose ad
ministration is most’signally exhibited, not [only in
the matchless operations of our army and navy, but
in the unpniallelcd fact that, in the midst of this
gigantic rebellion, our Government securities are
selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex
hibit and defend sound Republican principles, and,
inasmuch as political organizations have become a
necessity in carrying into effect great principles of
political economy, and inasmuch as tthe Republican
party which, in the brief chapter of its history already
written, has successfully refuted the allegation of its
enemies that its designs and tendencies were sec
tional, and triumphantly vindicated its claim to a
just and liberal Nationality, has remained steadfast
in its devotion to the L'nion while other organizations
have so generally become infected with a disloyal
spirit, and inasmuch as it is the only party which at
present seems competent to conserve the great prin
ciples underlying all free Governments, the 1’rkra
will cordially sustain the organization of that party,
not with a design to foster a mere partizan spirit, but
in the full conicintisness that it embodies the true
principles upon w hich our government rests, and af
fords the only available means of accomplishing such
results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands.
It will neither seek nor endorse any compromises
with men in rebellion against the laws of the land,
but will inculcate loyalty to the great central idea of
all true democracy—that the majority must govern.
Upon the exciting question of Domestic Slavery, it
may be proper to say, that while the Prkm will sanc
tion no interference with the constitutional or legal
rights of loyal men, it will neither apologize for an
evil which constitutes the foulest blot upon our
national character, nor attempt to resist the tide of
events that seems destined to sweep from existence
an institution which is the greatest anomaly in a free
government. The emancipation of slavery iu the
the loyal State governmclits, to secure gradual eman
cipation, as proposed by President Lincoln, and all
other constitutional measures looking to a peaceful
removal of our greati^t "moral, political and social
evil,” will find in the Press a generous and hearty
While thus distinctly announcing the general course
proposed for the Press, and intending th%t, alike in
war and in peace—in our country's peril and in its
triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, we
do not lose sight of the fact that true inen have hon
estly differed, and that, coming by different routes
they now find themselves travelling parallel roads;
and, instead of seeking to widen the difference be
tween those who are required by a common patriot
ism to act in concert, the Press will labor hopefully
to cucourage unity of purpose and harmony of act
ion amoug all loyal men.
Aside from its political department, the Press will
be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best
interests of the city and State. Its Local Depart
ment will in no case be neglected. Particular atten
tion will be given to the Commercial and Maritime
interests. It will be the aim of its conductors to make
it an indispensable institution of the State, and a ge
nial and welcome visitor in every work-shop, count
ing-house, aud family circle. The Editors, not un
known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi
ded energies to the work before them, and labor to
make such a paper as the city of Portland, the State
of Maine, and the exigencies of the times demand
one that shall be true to the popular instincts.
The Portland Daily Press is printed with en
tirely new type, on a sheet as largo as that of any
daily in Maine, aud issued every morning, (Sun
days excepted.) at 85 per annum. Subscriptions for
less than six months, 50 cents per month.
The Maine State Press, large, neatly printed,
and well filled with the news of the week, and orig
inal and selected Political. Agricultural. Literary and
Miscellaneous reading, making it specially adapted to
the Family Circle, will be issued weekly, at 81.50 per
year, idvariably in advance. To any person sending
the names of Jtre new gubscriberg, cash iu advance,
an extra copy will be sent gratis.
