Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 5 May 1849

Imitation Gold—beware of fraud ! — The Alta California of April 19 contains the following extract of a letter from one of the principal houses in the city of Mexico : "We have just been made acquainted by attaches to two of the embassies to this Government, that they had recently received positive information, that from several ports in the United States packages of worthless metal, worked to imitate the gold found in the Placer of Alta California had been shipped for the ports on that coast ; we therefore advise you to exercise great caution in your future purchases of this kind of bullion." In addition to which we publish from the N. Y. Tribune of February 1, as follows : — "We were shown a sample of the prepared spelter—the villainous counterfeit got up to cheat the greedy adventurers. It is in small grains and pieces resembling scales, mixed with black sand, and would readily be taken by the inexperienced, for the genuine metal. When mixed with a proportion of the true gold wash...

T!ie Plan-!-. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 12 May 1849

The Placer. The swollen state of the several mountain streams has deterred many of our citizens and strangers from entering the placer; but this should not be; the productiveness of the mines, even at this stage of the water, amply justifies labor, at whatever washing or diggings performed. Besides, the selection of suitable grounds for summer operations, will engage the attention of parties now setting out for the placer, and as this can be readily accomplished in most instances, for all the hindrance the waters present, we advise those designing to wash for gold this summer, and now holding back from entering the placer, to go at once. The hot weather and sickly season is approaching, when the exposure and fatigue of prospecting, or a search for the richer washings may not be so easily endured as at this time. They do well, too, who steadily apply themselves to labor, and in every section of the mining country from which we have received word a handsome yield has in scarce an inst...
