Satirical depiction of the duel, at Bamburgh on 1 July 1826, between Thomas Wentworth Beaumont, candidate in the Northumberland election of 1826, and John Lambton, who campaigned for Beaumont's Whig opponent, Viscount Howick. The duel was occasioned by comments made at the hustings at Alnwick on 30 June: Beaumont had accused Lambton of falsehood in denying that he had prompted Lord Howick during his speech. Shots were exchanged but Beaumont and Lambton both escaped physical injury.
