DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Oct. 12, 1849 Page 2 begins with: "Scenes In The Pacific" which reports on the arrival of Captain Fremont at Monterey, California in 1846.
Page 2 has over half a column headed: "The California Mines" which has many accounts of how much gold is being discovered--fine reading. Then a nice article headed; "Botanical Treasures of California".
Four pages, very nice condition.
