Court room scene, Mr M' Naughten trial

A sketch taken of the courtroom at Old Bailey where the trial of Mr M' Naughten took place, for the assassination Mr Edward Drummond, secretary to Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel. Mr M' Naughten was fixated with Sir Robert Peel, and in his attempt to assassinate him he hit Drummond. The trial became notorious and is still cited today as he pleaded insanity and was therefore not tried.

The Battle of Pacocha'; Action between HMS 'Shah' and 'Ameth

Engraving showing the battle between HMS 'Shah' and 'Amethyst' and the Peruvian Ironclad turret ship 'Huascar' on the 29th May 1877. The 'Huascar' had been taken over by some Peruvian revolutionaries and declared a 'pirate' by the Peruvian government. The 'Shah' and 'Amethyst' were ordered to protect British Merchant Shipping and after the 'Huascar' had stopped several British merchant ships, the Royal Navy decided to hunt down the 'Huascar'. In the action depicted, the 70 guns of the British ships were unable to do much damage to the 'Huascar' as she was an heavily-built ironclad. In return the gunnery crew of the 'Huascar' was not well drilled enough to hit the British ships much. In desperation the 'Shah' launched a Whitehead torpedo at the 'Huascar', but the Peruvian ship was able to dodge it with some ease. The battle became a stalemate and the two sides slipped away after the fall of darkness. Reputedly this was the last action by a wooden warship, firing a broadside of muzzle-loading guns and the first use of a torpedo in anger.
