Latest from the Mine*. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 17 May 1849

Latest from the Mines. [From the Placer Times of May 12.] 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 suituble 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 ...
