'The Dowry', 1863. Artist: John Tenniel

'The Dowry', 1863. 'Mr. Bull. There, Pam! There's The Trifle Of Money For The Marriage. Ah! How Much Better Than Some United States, Eh? John Bull hands over the first year's allowance from the brimming coffers of public funds. The Prince of Wales was shortly due to marry the beautiful Princess Alexandra of Denmark. Therefore, in accordance with Palmerston's proposal, it was agreed that an allowance of £100, 000 per annum should be made to the Prince of Wales. As £60, 000 was already received from the Duchy of Cornwall, only £40, 000 of this had to be found. A further £10, 000 was voted for the personal use of the Princess of Wales, making a total 'Dowry' of £50, 000 per annum. The 'united state' of marriage is compared very favourably to the 'United States' of America, still at this time deep in the throes of the Civil War. From Punch, or the London Charivari, February 28, 1863.

'A Derby Obstruction', 1861

'A Derby Obstruction', 1861. Disraeli is endeavouring to obstruct the passage of the phaeton being driven by Lord Palmerston, with Gladstone beside him and Lord Russell in the rear seat. Disraeli says Shan't get out o' the way. I'd like to upset the lot of yer! Mr Gladstone's Budget of 1860 had proposed the abolition of the duties on paper. This created a crisis as the Conservative majority in the House of Lords chose to reject this particular proposal. Gladstone had been furious, so, in 1861, he altered the budged procedures, embodying all the year's financial proposals, including the repeal of the paper duties, into one enormous bill. If the Lords wanted to reject the repeal of the paper duties, they would have to reject the whole Budget proposal. There was vigorous and vociferous opposition to this plan from the Conservative opposition here represented by Disraeli seated on a small donkey-drawn cart. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 1, 1861.
