Nonlinear growth of one-dimensional density structures with a frozen-in magnetic field is investigated in Newtonian cosmology. A mechanism of magnetic field amplification is discussed. We discuss the relation between the initial conditions for the velocity field and the basic time-scales determining the growth of the magnetized structure.
