Page 3 begins with a nearly half column article headed; "Sixteen Days Later From California" which begins: "The news from the mines is of a quite glowing character: the yield of gold was steady & though there was, as a matter of course, much disappointment among individuals, the general result was highly satisfactory..." with more on what is happening at the gold fields.
Page 2 also has: "The city of the Mormons, and its vicinity near Salt Lake, have 20,000 inhabitants...surrounded on three sides by tall ranges of mountains...The city is laid off in half-mile squares, without timber...".
Four pages, very nice condition.
