PROSPECTUS FOR 1855.
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 most interesting and solemn period of human life. It includes the transition 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 disappointment in its fearful wake. The Guardian will discourage light reading. It 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.”
The Guardian enters on its SIXTH VOLUME with the January number. It contains thirty-two pages monthly, making a handsome volume of three hundred and eighty-four pages at the end of the year. NOW IS THE TIME TO SUBSCRIBE. The Guardian has worked its way silently upward ever since its commencement, and it is still gaining in favor and, we believe, also in merit.
The Publisher therefore respectfully makes the following requests:
1. Pastors, who receive this Prospectus, are requested to hand it to some active member of the church, who will procure subscribers for The Guardian. If ten subscribers are obtained, we will send one copy to the person obtaining them and one to the pastor, gratis.
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.
The sixth volume will appear with various improvements. Among these may be mentioned THREE STEEL EMBELLISHMENTS. Also, an increase of interesting reading matter, by opening a new department, which will occupy four pages, set in small type. This will contain notices of New Books, and a Monthly Record of Current Events-giving a condensed view of the noticeable occurrences of the preceding month in the Old World and the New, in Literature, News, Science and Art.
The Guardian in the hands of the present Publisher will be printed on good white paper, and clear and handsome type, which will add much to its appearance.
TERMS-ONLY ONE DOLLAR A YEAR-IN ADVANCE. Any one who sends us five subscribers, with $5 cash, will receive one copy for one year, gratis. Twelve copies will be sent for $10; twenty-five copies for $20.
