This announcement was written solely by Dickens.
The Household Narrative of Current Events was published each month through 1855, at which time, owing to government taxing policies, it was discontinued. The scope and format of the Household Narrative are described in [this article].
The first number of the Household Narrative was not published in conjunction with the first number of Household Words because Dickens did not feel the plan of the Household Narrative was sufficiently matured. On 12 March 1850, a few weeks before the first issue of Household Words appeared, Dickens wrote to Wills: 'Supposing you had a place for the Household Narrative, and we could come distinctly to the understanding of it, I should incline to Forster's opinion. But I apprehended, last Saturday, that neither was your plan sufficiently matured, nor were the materials for its execution sufficiently considered (as to assistance and so forth) to admit of our beginning now, otherwise than short-sightedly - say with a blindness of one eye.'

The germ of this article can be found in a letter of Dickens to Charles Knight of 26 March 1850 (Pilgrim, Vol. VI, p. 73) in which he describes watching a globe-maker at work and revolving in his mind 'some faint idea of describing him as a traveller who was for ever going round the world without stirring out of that small street'. In the event he applied the idea to the current rage for Panoramas and Dioramas, which had been given fresh impetus in 1849 by the great success of Banvard's Panorama of the Mississippi, already publicly praised by Dickens. For a detailed account of the Panorama/Diorama phenomenon, see Chs 10–15 of R. D. Altick's The Shows of London (1978), and R. Hyde, Panoramania! The Art and Entertainment of the 'All-Embracing' View, the catalogue of an exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, London (1988–9).

Allingham noted in his diary for Sunday, 7 April 1850: 'A guinea from Household Words for "Lady Alice," with a compliment from Dickens—indicating that at this stage in its publishing history, the magazine paid at least some contributors in advance of publication: in this instance almost as soon as the make-up of the number was decided. Also that the some brief editorial acknowledgement accompanied the payment.
