"gruel..."   (Chapter I)

Gruel is similar to oatmeal and other grains boiled in water or milk.

"a shorter allowance than was originally provided for them..."   (Chapter II)

This was one of the main causes for the failure of the workhouses to do their mandated task.

"sevenpence-halfpenny..."   (Chapter II)

Close to 2 dollars in U.S. money as of 2008. Back in the 1800s it would have been around 8 pennies. Per head, it would have been a good enough amount to live in genteel modesty, like Dickens states later on.
