The Sunday at Home. 1865. (Religious Tract Society.)—This "family magazine

for sabbath reading" is decidedly showing the influence of the age. Looking at several numbers, we find miscellane- ous information, history, biography, topography, even stories to fine preaching in the proportion of three to one. This is real progress, and when we see in addition good engravings and illustrations on toned paper, such as "Edinburgh," " Puteoli," "Sir Humphery Gilbert," "Ship- wreck," &c., really attractive, we congratulate with all our heart the younger members of serious families on the approaching termination of that long " judgment of the sabbath-days."
