DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Oct. 9, 1858 

* Pike's Peak gold rush

Page 3 has an article headed: "From The Kansas Gold Region" which takes over half a column. We now call this the Pike's Peak Gold Rush. At the time Pike's Peak was in the Western Kansas Territory, the Colorado Territory not being formed until 1861. 
The report includes four letters from the gold fields, offering an interesting perspective.
Four pages, nice condition. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
