A short-lived periodical that was issued every Wednesday from January 9 to July 23, 1828, which Hunt wrote in his Autobiography (as quoted in Brewer) "consisted partly of criticisms on theatres, authors and public events, and partly of a series of essays in the manner of The Indicator...they contained some of what afterwards turned out to be my most popular writings. But I had no money to advertise the publication...and in little more than half a year I was forced to bring it to a conclusion." Brewer, pages 134-36; NCBEL III, 1219
