Magazines:

The Hathi Trust
(Better than the Internet Archive for finding copies of 19th century magazines, but with annoying copyright restrictions for non-U.S. residents.)

Making of America:
Cornell University
University of Michigan

The Spectator

 

Newspapers:

Most newspaper archive sites are commercial affairs so I feel no need to advertise them here. However there are some free sites which I have found useful:

Historical American Newspapers - Chronicling America (Library of Congress)
(Can I ask why we have to pay for the British Library newspaper archive?)

Old Fulton NY Post Cards (Newspapers from New York State.)

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle

The New York Times (Pre-1923 articles are free.)

National Library of Australia - Newspapers
(Again, can I ask why we have to pay for the British Library newspaper archive?)

New Zealand Newspapers
(Again ...)

Google Newspaper Archive (Not the easiest to navigate, but it does have copies of The Glasgow Herald.)
