The Sunday Magazine. 1865. Edited by Thomas Guthrie, M.D. (Strahan.)—The

Sunday Magazine contains a large proportion of very serious reading, and continues to enter a protest against latitudinarianism, Sunday travelling, and other modern tendencies. At the same time it is written by men of mark and cultivation, and does include some varia- tion of what used to be perpetual sermon in the Amps of travel and history, and above all, has excellent illustrations. Altogether it may be said to divest Sunday in a well-regulated household of some of its terrors, and may perhaps tend to avert that painful spectacle of every- body getting sleepy and cross over a volume of sermons, or eating an extra and unwholesome meal to pass away the time.
