The top of pg. 3 has a column headed: "Additional From California" which has much concerning the growth of the territory. One bit includes: "The immigrants by the overland route were continuing to arrive...It is said that numbers are now coming by the northern trail...The emigrants think that much of the suffering which has already occurred, & much yet to be endured, is attributable to the false statements made by these different writers...most of the miners there are dissatisfied & that many are already returning...general impression is that the diggers are now very successful."
Additional reports concerning the gold diggings in California.
