California Gold Rush. amd it's growing population...



Item # 657343

August 15, 1849

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Aug. 15, 1849  Page 3 has an interesting article: "Population Of California" noting that the entire "country" has about 60,000 people, broken down by country of origin. It also notes: "...Of the population already in the country, it is supposed that one-half...are engaged in various business pursuits, and the other half in digging for gold."
There is also a black-bordered report headed: "Death Of Albert Gallatin". And there is also half a column headed: "From The California Placers" which has various reports on the on-going gold rush. Some interesting reading.
Four pages, very nice condition.
