THE GUARDIAN, A MONTHLY MAGAZINE,
Devoted to the Social, Literary and Religious Interests of
oung Men and Ladies.
Rev. H. HARBAUGH, D. D., Editor. THE GUARDIAN enters upon its XIV th volume It has a sufficient bistory io establish its character, and to show its fruits. In its principles, purposes and general spirit, we have no changes to propose The True, the Beautiful, and the Good are unchangeable-error and sin are always the same. It will remain under the editorial management of its founder, Rev. H. HARBargu, D. D, whose name of itself the publishers regard as the most satisfactory guarantee of the high tone and general interest which characterize the family magazine.
From and after January the 1st, 1863, Tas GUARDIAN will be published by M. Kieffer & Co., Chambersburg, Pa. Though comparing well in its present form with any publication of the kind, improvements are always possible. The new Publishers propose a general renewal of its nechanical and typographical appearance. The January number will be embellished with a beautiful steel Engraving, and the new volume appear with a handsome ornamental corer title. Though paper has advanced one hundred per cent., they promise to use a superior quality in the new Voluine; and shall do all in tbeir power, in co-operating with the Editor, in rendering The GUARDIAN acceptable to its subscribers.
This Magazine will be, as heretofore, devoted to the highest interests of the young, at the most solemn and interesting period of their life. It will offer its friendly counsels to them in an earnest though free and cheerful way. It will solemnly seek to warn them against the wrong, and affectionately lure them to the right. The Editor will endeavor to make its contents true, pure, fresh, and healthy as the morning of life. It will particularly urge self-culture and early piety as of the highest importance, and cultivate the home feeling as a sacred element in social purtiy and peace. It will seek to move in the element of its motto:“Life--Light-Love."
THE GUARDIAN has no denominational or party bias. It is its ambition to take the quiet way of peace and love. It would turn the attention of its readers totdat first and greatest of duties, the cultivation of the heart, mind, social feelings and pious affections. It will bave its reward if it can be the means of making Hearts better, Homes happier, and Heaven surer. The evidence that it has in a degree done this, which the experience of years has furnished, is more precious to us than gain or gold. Cheerfully, hopefully, and believingly we look into the future as wa take our pilgrim-staff in hand to travel another year.
THE GUARDIAN contains thirty-two pages monthly, making a handsome Volume of three hundred and eighty-four pages at the end of the year.
