* California Gold Rush
* 49ers - mining - mine
The front page has not one but three articles on the California Gold Rush including: "California Adventurers" beginning: "The 'stream of human life' is now setting as irresistibly towards California...The gold attraction is so strong that few are willing to lose the time necessary to go by water round the cape or by the overland route..." & more.
Also: "The Gold Fever" has a letter beginning: "The gold fever, which is spreading like an epidemic through the whole country...The attempt to guard the public property from gold-hunters & squatters...might lead to very serious consequences..." and much more. And then: "Late From California" which takes over a full column.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the blank spine from disbinding, minor loss to an upper corner, generally good condition.
