The political cartoon by W. A. Rogers features Britannia sneaking a child over the fence between Canada and the United States, with Canada's connivance. The issue addressed is Canada's sending "feeble" Irish immigrants with "neither money nor friends" to the United States. It is clear from the depiction that the Irish newcomers would be resented whether they were moneyed or not. Also included is a full-page collection of images of Louisiana's sugar industry by J. O. Davidson, as well as the drawing "Salmon-Fishing in Canadian Waters" by A. B. Frost, and "Sketches in Atlantic City" by F. B. Schell. Item #55911
