'A Friend in Need', 1873. Artist: Joseph Swain

'A Friend in Need', 1873. Mr Gladstone is seen here with John Bright. In the background, an African man, dressed in skins and feathers is nonetheless armed with a very modern rifle. Recently, Gladstone had offered Bright the office of Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. However, Bright took office just at the time that the Ashanti Campaign began. Sir Garnet Wolsely, the administrator on the Gold Coast, launched an expedition against Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti, as it was believed that they were threatening existing British settlements. Kumasi fell early in 1874 and peace was agreed. However, Mr Gladstone is shown as requesting John Bright's support, despite it being very well-known that Mr Bright held strong peace principles. From Punch, or the London Charivari, October 11, 1873.

'The Fight at St. Stephen's Academy', 1864. Artist: John Tenniel

'The Fight at St. Stephen's Academy', 1864. 'Mrs Gamp. Never Mind, My Dear! You done yer werry best to win; which that Master Gladsting is such a huncommon strong boy!' This cartoon depicts Disraeli, with his seconds in the shape of John Bright and the newspaper, the Standard, mopping the bloody nose he has received from Gladstone who, by all accounts, and contrary to expectation, had spoken against Disraeli to excellent effect. In late June, the Government had to answer their critics on the subject of why Britain had not gone to the aid of Denmark. Palmerston's reasons were numerous, but in July Mr Disraeli moved a vote of censure on the Government that they had failed to maintain their publicly stated policy of upholding the independence of Denmark. The debate went on for several nights until the movement was rejected by a majority of 18. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 16, 1864.
