Colona, May 20th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 June 1849

Coloma, May 20th, 1849. Editor Placer Times: — A portion of the Valley City merchants are disposed to support very warmly the action of the — so called — legislature, so far as this nondescript body may pass acts protecting the resident traders in their local operations. These same merchants of Sacramento City and Sutterville, however, do not pretend to do as they would be done by in such matters; — as they are now, after making nearly all they possess out of the custom of the mountain traders, not only continuing to sell to these men, but freighting the same kinds of goods into the mountains them selves and retailing them, under the very noses of their old customers at cheaper rates than the wholesale invoice to them. How then can these river traders expect any mountain trade to support their legislature in passing acts that shall tend still more to place them at their mercy (where no quarters will be given) by prohibiting pedlars, hawkers, and transient traders vending their stock...

The Placer. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 June 1849

The Placer. Our latest advices convey the welcome information that north and south the waters are steadily falling. The impression is very general that the deluge is over for this season, and that flooded ravines or inundated bars will not again impede the work. Stirring times throughout the summer may be expected. Parties are fitting out to explore tlie streams, or penetrate the mountain country, traverse the heights and search the ravines; and a few men. we are credibly informed, purpose to cross the Sierra Nevada and hunt for gold along the eastern slope. The organizations for turning the rivers are assembling for the renewal of labor, and the mining companies at the head waters of streams are furnishing camp with supplies, and otherwise preparing for summer operations. — The new discoveries between the Middle and North Forks of the American river have excited much attention. as it is thought that when the waters will have left the ravines the richest deposites [sic] may be found...

For the Placer Times. South Fork Feather River, May 20. Mr. Editor:— If a short sketch of a recent journey through the Juba and Feather river country, and a few observations by the way, can be made acceptable to you, as interesting to the readers of your journal, I cheerfully avail myself of the facilities for communication with your city which this place at present affords, to detail briefly the incidents of travel, and relate my experience thus far in the California gold mines. An humble citizen of an Eastern metropolis, when first the astonishing, and almost incredible tales of the gold discoveries electrified our people, I had never suffered the even tenor of my quiet pursuit in life to be disturbed by a thought of seperation from the home of my infancy, but the brilliant prospects of boundless wealth in California, and a share in the great lottery crowded thick upon my fancy, and at length seized with the all prevailing mania I no longer hesitated to echo the cry of gold — more...
