Brownejohns, Swartwout, Underhill, and Bonney write with a style and an eloquence that is very old fashion, but they are writing about current events, and about the modern world.
I don't know if Swartwout or Eliza Bonney went anywhere - all I know of Bonney after "Three Weeks" is that she edited the book "Fodder" and wrote the Foreword for it.
Some of these articles and other materials from the Independent were put together for the books "Fodder, or Essays Against the Administration" and "To Vote, or Not." Check out their website for more about them, and lots of other online articles.
