Though paper has advanced one hundred per cent., they promise to use a superior quality in the new Volume ; and shall do all in their power. in co operating with the Editor, in rendering Tue GUARDIAN acceptable to its subscribers.

It will particularly urge self culture and early piety as of the bigliest 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-Ligbt-Love."

The Guardian has no denominational or party bias. It is its ambition to tale the quiet way of peace and love. It would turn the attention of its readers totnat first and greatest of duties, the cultivation of the beart, mind, social feelings and pious affections. It will bave its reward if it can be the means of making learts better, Homes happier, and Heaven suier. The evidence that it has in a degree done this, which the experience of years has furnished, is mre precious to us than gain or gold. Cheerfully, hopefully, and believingly we look into tbe future as wa take our pilgrim-staff in hand to travel another year.
