Print shows Lords Sandwich, Rigby, North, Mansfield, an unidentified man, and Germain in the clutches of a devil, fall into an abyss, driven there by the opposition, or new ministers, Thurlow, Conway, Camden, Barré, Burke, Richmond, Rockingham, Fox, Wilkes, and Byng. Above the scene an angel shines "The mirror of truth" on the old ministers, and Lord Bute, riding on the back of a witch over the abyss, exclaims, "England's evil genius unhorsed or the downfall of Witchcraft."
