It is now more than twelve years since the Saturday Magazine was first offered to the public. At the time of its establishment there was a general demand for cheap publications, and that demand was met with an activity corresponding to an appetite which seemed to "grow with what it fed on." But the supply was not wholesome and sound, neither was it harmless. A large portion of it was furnished by persons who had set themselves in opposition, not only to the powers that be in Church and State, but to the precepts and practices of our holy religion, and the sublime truths of Revelation itself. Hence it was that week after week there were poured forth, in various shapes and in countless thousands, low-priced publications teeming with licentiousness and sedition, with impiety and blasphemy.

This state of things proved the necessity of meeting the demand for popular literature with a supply of such as might fairly be permitted to circulate in a Christian country. The Saturday Magazine was accordingly put forth under the auspices of a Committee of General Literature and Education, specially appointed by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, for the purpose of furnishing cheap reading for the people.

In laying down rules for the management of the Saturday Magazine it was decided, in order to avoid collision and discussion, that no notice whatever should be taken of existing publications of an opposite bias and tendency, nor controversial topics of any kind be broached; and thus it was that the Saturday Magazine never became a vehicle for the circulation of doctrines or opinions. It was determined that the weekly sheet should be filled with matter which every order of persons might read and enjoy; that the subjects should be as various as the limited number of its pages would admit; and the style and treatment as light and popular as was consistent with the character and station of the venerable Society under whose auspices it was ushered into the world. But of course throughout its various articles the spirit of truth and justice, of religion and piety, was maintained, and the great duty of imparting a Christian character and tendency to every branch of popular knowledge was kept in view.

It was expected and believed that a work of this kind would at once become the most effectual practical check that could be offered to the circulation of the pernicious trash whereby
