COMIC PERIODICALS.
Not upon the Comic Literature of Kng
lanrl Hew the "Funny" Journale
Urol an Died.
" An exceedingly interesting nnd curioux book,
ays the London Boohsiller, uiigbt be written ou
the Influence and scope of comic litcrHture.
Tracing it from the "Clouds1' ot Arlxtoplianes
and the satirical libels of rasquiii, tho Roman
cobbler, the anti-Jacobin journals 01 the brst
Trench revolution, the "(iasconivies" of the
eamo period, the "Plndarics:' ot Walcot, and the
'Joe AlillerlflmB'' of the lust century, to the
Jacetiro column of the modern penny periodi
cal, and the Yankeclsms of the American
press, the -writer would have full scope
For his indUHtry and ample margin for his wit.
He would travel through the literature ot all
riviliaid countries, and mark how BOiue cele
brated witticism, Fome quaintproverb.BOine vene
rrnbe jcud'espnt, had paused from ae to age and
from language to language; how the "Don Quix
ote" of Cervantes had given birth to a literature
efitsown of which the "Hudibras" of liutler
and "JLauncelot C-reaves''of Smollett are familiar
c samples how the spirit of tun and satire had
invaded the stage, the press, and even the
etrlous writings ot historians and divines.
it is impossible to give anything like a com
plete list of the facetious and satirical news
papers and magazines that have been published
an England during the present century. Such a
list has never been attempted; and at this day it
would be exceedingly dillicult to compile, owiug
to the very ephemeral nature ot many of the
tumorous publications and the little attention
generally bestowed upon the preservation of
ttnch ot them as have been uusuccessful. In the
British Museum Library there exist numerous
pcclraens of this kind of literature; but the
trouble of searehlmr in the catalogue for their
titles is only equalled by the disappointment
experienced by the discovery of tho absence of
eonie of the most characteristic from the na
tional collection.
Of the earlier specimens of what may be called
'Punch" periodicals, that is, semi-newspapers,
combining tha facetious with the pohtic.il or
aatirieal, and generally illustrated with euiirav.
inge more or less comic in their nature, we may
mention the following:
The Scourge; or, Monthly Expositor maga
zine of politics and satire was published by
TV. N. Jones, of Newgate- street, In 1811, and
went through seven volumes, each number
being illustrated by a highly-colored, folded in
political caricature, by George Cruiksbank, then
a young man of eighteen. Seta of the Scourge
jnuy sun be found on the DooKstaiis in .London,
generally without the caricatures.
The Rump Chronicle, a single page, published
in 1810, and devoted principally to the abuse of
fiir Francis BurdetU.John Cam Hobhouse, and
other Whig politicians of the day, was adorned
with the figure ot the hinder legs and tail of a
cart-horse; and as its humor was mainly politi
cal, it lasted exactly tlx days; when it wrote and
published its own epitaph.
The Black Dwarf, a weekly sheet of sixteen
pages in small 4to, published first by Stcill, of
Bartholomew Close, in 1817, and afterwards by
T. J. Wooler, of Sun street, Bishopgate, con
tained much political matter and a tew epi
grams, for which its editor enjoyed the privilege
of a Government prosecution, but was acquitted
by the jury. The Black Dtearf took for its
juot to a distich from Pope:
"Satire's my weapon: but I'm too discreet
To run a muck and lilt at all I meet;
I only wear It In a laud ot Hectors,
Thieves, supercargoes, sharpers, aud directors."
It lasted about a year, and was followed by
the Yellow Dvoarf, a much more mild specimen
of criticism, which seems to have existed for
three months, and theu to have died and left no
ign.
The Quizzical Gazelle Extraordinary and Won
derjul Advertiser, price sixpence, appeared on
the 1st of April, 181U, and was continued an
nually lor eight years, always bearing date on
All Fools' Day.
Fig's Meal; or, Lessons for the Swinish
Multitude, a penny weekly, publmlica tay T.
Spruce, at the Hive of Liberty, No. 8 Little
Turnstile, Holborn, in 1794-5 consisted of prose
nd verse, principally of a satirical character;
but its title was modified, at the beginning of
its third volume, to Fig's Meat; or, Lessons for
ihe People, although the phrase was quoted
from Burke. A portrait of a pig, and various
small woodcuts, illustrated the text of this book.
The Parrot, with a Compendium of the Timis,
Was another periodical of seini-satirical and
political character; uh was also the Pic-Mc,
fiublished in 1803, in shilling numbers. The
Btter was the organ of the Dilettante Pic-Nic
Club. But neither the Club nor its organ lived
more than a few months.
From about 1820 to 1830 there seem to have
been no comic periodicals of any importance;
but on the 10th of December, 1831, there was
published the first number of Figaro in London,
A famous political pasqninade, which, though
it frequently changed proprietors and editors,
lasted from week to week for more than eight
years in fact, almost up to the birth of Punch,
Figaro was framed on the Parisian model.
Many of our readers doubtless remember the
woodcut of the political barber dressing tho
Whigs, and tho motto from Lady Montague
beneath:
should , like a polish'd razor keen,
. "h touch that's scarcely felt or seen."

thirty seven wCCo.9, and succumbed. lis con
ductors promised to carry it on as a sixpenny
monthly, under the title of the Wags' Magazine:
but we have not been able to ascertain whether it
ever appeared in the latter blinpe. The num
bers were afterwards republished as the "Devil's
ilemotaudum Book" lor la33.
Dibdiris Pamy 'Trumpet, "to be blown weekly
(not weakly) throughout the British empire,
and farther if required!" was blown for just lour
weeks in October, 1832, and then was heard no
more. The Schoolmaster at Home was rather
more fortunate, for it lasted durine six whole
weeks of the summer of 1832; longer it could
not be made to live. It was succeeded by the
Tribune of the People, which can only be ad
mitted into the list of comic periodicals in
"virtue of some rather weak jokes and epigrams;
and which in its turn was followed by the" Whig
Dresner, a close imitation of Figaro.
The WhigDresser, which was really clever and
Sarcastic, only lusted eleven weeks, and then
. announced that it would, for the future, arpcar
monthly. The success of the Purisiau Figaro
nd its London compeer naturally led to Imita
tion; aud various periodicals, under such titles
as the English igaro, the Critical Figaro, and
Giovanni in London, made their appearance,
nd amused the town for a few months
Oh the 3d of June, 18117, the mom iintirealuV
Of the periodicals of th, clVss'oTneuviably re
presented by the tuttrmt made its anneartinre
Jt was called The Toun, u,i was l3uc1eTby
Mr. Benton Nicholson, a clover but unwind
pled niaD, who after figuring as a billiard
marker, a "bonnet" In a gambling saloon au
informer and a government spy, ended 'hu
career by acting as Prcsideut of a low Judgo
and Jury Society, held at the Cole Hole iD tha
Ktrand. Yet the 'Joun, desp.te its indecency
and profanity, was well-ritleu, well-illustrated,
and admirably managed in all that concerned
its business arrangements; it listed for nearly
three years, ai'd attained considerable circula
tion. Presently we hud a Penny Hutirist, a
Paul Pry, the Wag, Peeping Tom, and other
periodicals of like disreputable character.
The Oddfellow, Cteace's Oizette of Variety,
and other humorous penny periodicals, ap
peared about 1837-40. Seymour, Harvey, and
Kenny Ueadow were the artists employed in
designing the few sketches with which they
were' illustrated. Iu Paris, however, Le Charir
ari uceeeded, or rather competed with, Figaro.
The first English publication in which the word
"Charivari" was used was a monthly magazine
tdited by the late Mr. Hughes, of the Time$. It
was called tbe London ilaganine, CAarftar,
THE DAIL1 EVENING TELEGKAm PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY,
and Covrricr dct Dames. It wjis published only
for a lew months of l!40, and is noticeable prin
cipally as the medium through which John
Leech, the artlM, made the acquaintance of the
public.
All thee comic periodicals were, however,
destined to be outshone by one of a higher class,
both n icffnrds liteiature'and iHrtstrauons. On
the 17tb ol July, 1811, appeared the Brst number
ol Punch, or the London Charivari. Several
stories hHve been told of the orltrin of this
famous publication, but the Bookseller believes
the truth to be that it was dcaigncd bv Mr.
Mark Lemon, theu a ttveru-keeper in Wych
street, Strand; and that his earliest coadjutors
were Gilbert a Beckett, proprietor and editor of
tho recently dclunct Figaro in London; Henry
ilavhew, then a jounir and active journalist;
and Harry Gratlan, husband of the public
singer. Afterwards, Mimerous clever writers
Hood, Thackeray, Jerrold, Percival Leigh,
Albert Smith, Artcmas Ward, and others con
tributed to its pages. Tho notion that the
literary Punch was a compound of sweet aud
bitter things, rather than a pictorial representa
tion of the popular street puppet, seems gene
rally to have been present to tho minds ot its
Winers. KS3 "tiul
A rather cruel joke with reference to the con
stituent elements of Punch is attributed to Mr.
Dion Douciciult, the dramatist, who wrote
occasional . rcrnps in the enilier numbers.
Punch, he is said to have explained to nn
American audience, "was originally mixed
by four clever but comparatively unknown
men: Gilbnt a Beckett provided the spirit,
Henry Mavhcw the sugar, Douglas Jerrold tho
acid, and Mark Lemon the spoon !" This Is not
quite accurate, as Jerrold did not write for
Punch till its eighth or ninth number.
If imitation be the highest complimant that
can be paid to genius, then certainly Punch has
been complimented in the most superb manner;
for it has had many imitator", but few rivals.
Among these we may mention the tfguilt, "a
granulation of wit, satire, and amusement,
started in 1842, and continued for thirty weeks:
Purl', a three-penny 'journal of fun aud comic
satire, issued by Jeremiah Howe, of Fleet street;
the Puppet S'iow, a smart, satirical weekly,
which appeared in the spring of 1848, and lived
for twenty-eight weeks; the Montti, a minute
comic publication, which went to twelve num
bers; Chat, a clever little paper, the property, in
18ri0-61, of the late Mr. Marriatt, and his suc
cessor in the newspaper trade, Henry. Vickars:
the Man in the Moon, a small' octavo,
which went through five volumes;
and was edited by Albert Smith, after his
quarrel with Messrs. Lemon and Jerrold: Dio
genes, a really humorous threepenny weekly,
edited by Mr. Bobert Kemp Philip, the originator
of the Family Friend (which, by the way, died
out last month). Dionencs was Drinctnall? illnn.
trated by Mr. Watts Phillips, the dramatist, thea
a draughtsman and engraver on wood; and
among its literary contributor were the Brothers
Broiib, Angus Beach, and other less known
comic and satirical writers. Diogenes lived for
eighteen months. In 18."4 another Punchinello
was started, but it lasted only for twenty-seven
weeks, to be followed by Xotcn Talk, and various
small ventures in the comic vein, none of which
reached that all-important era in the life of a
periodical "paying" point.
In 1850 or 1851 Mr. George Augustus Sala,
then an engraver, started London, a comic
weekly, on the plan of Punch; but it proved a
non-success, and soon died. In 18S3 t un made
its appearance, and though it has several times
changed hands, it may now be said to be an
ettabliehed comic organ. Among its chief con
tributors are its editor, "Tom Hood" (son of the
celebrated author of the "Song of the Shirt"),
Arthur Sketchley, Mr. Burnand. "Nicholas,"
and Mr. II. J. Byron, the dramatist; and in the
list of its artists we find the names of the late
Paul Gray, W. McConnell, and Charles Bennett,
the latter of whom seceded to Punch about a
year before his death, and just previous to the
decease of Leech, prince of caricaturists.
Later still indeed, in the present year we
have Judy, a three-halfpenny comic (lately
raised to two-pence); not very brilliant either in
her wuy ot Hicrulure or llliiHtruUou ; aud 2'tw
Tomahawk? This latter Is the youngest, raoBt
piomising, and certainly the most fearles and
original of all the comic and satirical publica
tions. It strikes out a path of its own, aud
combines the wit of Punch with the dry, caustic
humor of the Owl which latter periodical is
issued, without illustrations, durr.ir tno sitting
ol Purlfnmeiit, aiid seems intended only lor the
delectation ot politicians, clubmen, and the
"upper ten thousand," While we write, a Half
penny Punch has made its appearance, but it
does not look like a success; and Banter is an
nounced, as a semi-political comic weekly.
The periodicals above named have ail been
lEsued iu London; but the metropolis is not
alone in the production of pictorial and written
wit and satire. In Liverpool there have been
published, duiing the last few years, a loma
hauk, a Porcupine, a Pan, a Lion, and other
smart weeklies, which have lived their day aud
made their moderate successes, withaut,' how
ever, attracting any very lart-'e share of public
attention beyond their own local circles,
