"C--bd--n." and "P--lm--rst--n." -- that is, Edward George Geoffrey Smith Stanley, 14th Earl of Derby (1799-1869), Henry John Temple, Viscount Palmerston (1784-1865), and Richard Cobden (1804-65). The cartoon mixes English reform politics with the insurrection in the area of Canton, China, against the French and British. [See additional commentary below]
