Literary Encyclopedia Punch (magazine) Punch, or the London Charivari was a British weekly magazine of humour and satire established in 1841 by Henry Mayhew and engraver Ebenezer Landells. Historically, it was most influential in the 1840s and 50s, when it helped to coin the term "cartoon" in its modern sense as a humorous illustration. It became a British institution, but after the 1940s, when its circulation peaked, it went into a long decline, finally closing in 1992. It was revived in 1996, but closed again in 2002. The term "cartoon" to refer to comic drawings was first used in Punch in 1843; the Houses of Parliament were to be decorated with murals, and "cartoons" for the mural were displayed for the public; the term "cartoon" then meant a finished preliminary sketch on a large piece of cardboard, or cartone in Italian. "True Humility": Bishop: "I'm afraid you've got a bad egg, Mr Jones"; Curate: "Oh, no, my Lord, I assure you that parts of it are excellent!" George du Maurier, originally published in 1895

Egyptian War 1882 - Your Archives From Your Archives The Suez Canal opened on 16 November 1869, thus giving ships the opportunity to sail to the Far East without having to use the longer and more expensive route via the Cape of Good Hope. It was obvious that whoever controlled Egypt controlled the canal. Egypt was not a rich country and such were its finances that in 1875 Britain brought shares in the Suez Canal. In February 1881, the Egyptian Army mutinied in favour of one of its colonels, Arabi Pasha and other military leaders. On 6 June 1882, a riot broke out in Alexandria, nationalist feelings were running high. Throughout this period of unrest the Egyptian Army had been building forts to protect the port of Alexandria.
