IWiugh whose education, literary taste,
and general qoaliGcatious, appear to fit
him adinirably for the work proposed. We
understand it is to have no sectarian Lias

t'ie wants and the feelinps of all who huve

it is to be devoted to the hiebeej interests of the young, nt that period of life which lies '
between youth end manhood. This is -he mo interesting and the most solemn period of human life.
It is the transition period, in which ibe young sus from tbe warm boom of the family into the
nuirn aruve duties and reaponsibilitiFs 01 life. Here the road of life forks many ways, and each
nl-ns wrta a anile to the yea tig traveler. H jbiu are now forming character is shaping and
maturing ; and the young spirit is rec-iviog that bias which generally determines its tendency,
' -t time and eternity. An education is now lo be received or ta be neglected a trade or prolee
ioa is lo be cbon new relations in lib are lo be formed. At ibwtims, too, religion urges its
rltinw with peealisr eerneatneaw, ssd a prafawion is near lo be made, or to be set aside perhaps
for life. Tbea, loo, come Ibe duties and trials of a young Christian. '8 jch are some of life's
"temnuiat which crowd into this great transition period of life.'" '
At this period, Tbe Guardian hopes to be useful to ihe young There is no perio
d.cl suiied lo tbe serious wants of this age. - Tbe light-reading, which so easily falls into the
Ituit of the youog by meaas of many of our City poblicauoas, gives a false col sting to life,
torn, iu earnest realities into romance, and lesves Muht, mo. bid i was, and diaappointment in its
fearful wake. By the aid of good writers, we will endaavor to adapt this m mthly to tbe highest
iMexrta of the young making it pore, fresh, healihy sad animjied as the morning of life in
which the young have taeir being. It will arge ibe claims of early piety, and eerk lo aid in
r.-aking it iaiUlUaeat. conn tent and Ineebjr. We will mske h a prominent point, to encourage
iUutture. or Uelf EdacaUoo among the yoong. We will aim at leading them lo habits of
:ii.'y and reading, and to tbe oeefut employment of leisure time. . To this end we will give, at
tir.iM, short Maarapbies of nam who became great aad osuful by a coarse of persevering Serf Edu
rna, hoping Utie way lo incite tlie young to imitate their eiample. ' ' -
It is believed and hoped that a periodical such as this will be eminently useful.

But even with fhese views I woi.-ld rather
have surrendered myself to my deadliest
enemy than to cause any difficulties to the
Turkish Government, whose situation 1
well knew how to apprcciatc.and therefore
did not intrudo on ibe Turkish territories
without previously iniu ring whether 1 atid
my C'linpaninni in misfortune would be t'"- -willingly
