In the Monthly Retrospect of the January number of The Guardian, there were some allusions to political questions which we can readily imagine must have been unpleasant to some of our readers. The Editor desires to say, that the Monthly Retrospect was not prepared by himself, and inadvertently found its way into the magazine without his review. The Guardian will adhere to its original pledge, to be free from all political bias and religious sectism. In regard to all political jangling, the sentiments of The Guardian are those which Nehemiah expressed in reference to Sanballet: "I am doing a good work, so that I cannot come DOWN."

THE Guardian is sacredly devoted to the highest interests of the Young, at that period of life which lies between youth and manhood. This is the It includes the transition most interesting and solemn period of human life. time in which the young pass from the warm bosom of the family into the more active duties and responsibilities of life..
We know of no periodical suited to the serious wants of this age. The light reading which so easily falls into the hands of the young, by means of many of our city publications, gives a false coloring to life, turns its earnest realities into romance, and leaves blight, morbidness and disappointThe Guardian will discourage light reading. It ment in its fearful wake. will be the aim of the Editor to make it true, pure, fresh, healthy and animated, as the morning of life in which the young have their being. It will seek to encourage self-culture among the young, and lead to the useful improvement of leisure time. It will urge the claims of early piety, and seek to aid in making it intelligent, consistent, and lovely. Having no denominational or party bias, The Guardian advocates no religious peculiarities, but moves in the free element of its motto-" LIFE, LIGHT, Love."

2. We respectfully ask Young Men to aid us in increasing our circulation. It will be an easy thing for them to raise a club among their companions.
3. The largest lists we have yet received were from Young Ladies. We respectfully ask them to continue their favors. It is a mode of doing good which admirably suits their sphere.
4. Some School Teachers have done kindly and well for The Guardian. May we not hope for their co-operation in a work which so well falls in with their own?
5. Postmasters are requested to act as our agents, to whom we will allow the usual per-centage. Specimen numbers sent when requested.
