OFFICIAL. NOTICE. Having been informed from various sources, of the great suffering and needy condition of many of those deluded and thoughtless persons, who in violation of their plighted faith to their country, have deserted from the Pacific squadron, since the 9th day of October of this year ; and who are now paying the penalty of their transgression, under the combined suffering of disease, famine and exposure to an inclement winter; and that many of said deserters, truly repenting their rash and ill-judged act of desertion, would return to their allegiance and their ships, but for the fear of the penally which the laws might impose, I do hereby say to all such persons, who are chargeable with no other offence against the laws of the Navy than that of desertion — great as is the enormity — return immediately, to your duty, and you will have no cause to regret your confidence in my clemency and forbearance. THO'S AP. C. JONES, Commander in Chief, U. S. Naval Forces, Pacific Ocean...

BEWARE OE AI.I/OYS AND SPELTER. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 12 April 1849

BEWARE OE ALLOYS AND SPELTER. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO. THR'DAY, APR 19 1849. By the arrival of the Swallow from Mazatlan, a gentleman of this place has received the following extract of a letter from the branch house of Jecker, Torre & Co., 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." Every person who is dealing in gold, should look out for this kind of fraud. It is most likely that the base metal or alloy will be mingled with pure gold, and close scrutiny is necessary to secure the public and individuals from imposition. "We have received, through the kindness of...

LATEST FROM THE MIJYES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 12 April 1849

LATEST FROM THE MINES. Extract from a letter dated — Sacramento City. April 14, 1849. " Squire Wheeler has just come in with the news that Richard Johnson and a man named Wood, both of Oregon, with three others, have been killed by the Indians on the Middle Fork. Some men were also killed by the Indians on the Mokelumne, a few days since. "They have lately opened some very rich and extensive new dry diggings, between Sutter's mill and the North Fork. Lumps weighing four pounds each, are said to have been found, but this is probably an exaggeration." Extract from a letter dated — Benicia, April 7, 1849. Yuba is entirely deserted. There may possibly be 5 families on the whole river. There is plenty of gold there, but diggers became dissatisfied with 25 and 32 dollars per day. The greater number have gone south. Extract from it letter dated — Sacramento, March 21, 1849. In my letter to you, I gave you some information as to the best Mining districts, and advised you, if you could get a...
