The News. Oregon. — By ihe Joven Guypuscoana, J. R. Reeve master, which arrived at this port on Monday last, after a passage of four days, we have received through J. R. Snyder Esq., a file of the Oregon Spectator to Feb'y 22. There is no news of importance. Gov. Lane had reached Oregon city, and issued his proclamation as such officer on the 3d of March. The Provisional legislature had adjourned in the 16th of February, after passing fifteen acts and one resolution. One of the acts was for the establishment of a mint at Oregon city. Aaron E. Wait, Esqr., has retired from the editorial charge of the Oregon Spectator newspaper. It was supposed that its publication would be suspended during the mi- ning season, as the printer was anxious to procure his share of California gold dust. The publication of the Free Press had stopped for the same reason. Sandwich Islands. — By the Sophia, Smith master, arrived on the 17th inst, from Honolulu, we have received files of the Polynesian to Febr...
CALIFORNIA GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 22 March 1849
CALIFORNIA GOLD. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, THURS'Y, MAR. 22, 1849. We would call attention to our important advertising supplement, this day published. Advertisers are again notified that to ensure immediete publication, they must send in their favors by 10 o'clock, A. M., of Wednesday preceding publication. All doubts as to the value and purity of California Gold Dust are finally dissipated by tho following letter of the Director of the U. S. Mint at Philadelphia. Those who have attempted to depreciate its value, for the purpose of speculating therein, by circulating rumors of its want of purity, are now exposed. We trust that those who have labored hard to procure the precious metal during the past year, will not sell their earnings at a less rate than sixteen dollars the ounce in coin. It is fully worth that, and will yield to the purchaser a large profit, as the following figures will show: Value of 1 oz. California Gold at the Mint $18.05 1-2 Cost at San Francisco per oz....
