The Nicaragua Koutr. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 29 April 1850

The Nicaragua Route Every project that shortens the distance from, and facilitates the intercourse with, California, meets great attention in the East. The Tribune, discussing the Nicaragua route, remarks upon the necessity of bringing the Atlantic and Pacila coasts in closer connection, if they are to remain in the same confederation. The editor inquires whether, in anticipation of the completion of the ship canal. the River San Juan and Lako of Nicaragua do not offer the means of greatly diminishing the time and expenso required in reaching the Pacific, and furnishes the following statements : The River San Juan de Nicaragua is 84 miles in length, and is now perfectly navigable, through its whole length, at all seasons, for steamboats or other craft drawing 1 1/2 to 2 foot water. Or by entering through the Colorado, which is, in fact, one of the mouths of the San Juan, no longer than the other, and the channel through which the greater part of the waters are discharged, boats of t...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 May 1850

Machinery for Gold Mining.—We learn from the Philadelphia Ledger that five small engines, with boilers, and three sets of portable apparatus for stamping, washing and separating gold from the rock in which it is found, were shipped last week onboard the bark Sultan at that port, bound to San Francisco. The Ledger says : These apparatus have been made for Commodore Stockton, who designs to use them in California, and they are portable, so that they can be easily transported over mountains to any locality where they can be worked to advantage. The principle of the machines is the same which Commodore Stockton patented a year or two since, and has now in operation in his mines in Virginia ; but he has introduced many improvements, for which ho has taken out another patent. The boilers Weigh about 4000 pounds each, but with the exception of them, no other single portion of the machinery weighs over 2600 pounds. Euch apparatus is driven by an engine of eight horse power, which i puts in ...

The Season mid flu: Health of tlio : city. v:;; [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 May 1850

The Season mid flu: Health of tlio : city. v : ;; Pit is unquestionably of the most vital importance that no sanitary provisions should be neglected that are required to sustain and promote the general health of our citizens. An unfavorable impression bus got abroad, founded upon the experience of last year, which, if not early encountered tad removed by the most efficient demonstrations, must operate seriously against the disposition to settle in our midst. No one familiar with the circumstances of the period during which the greatest mortality occurred here, can be surprised at the amount of it. This point then was. the resort of the sick and suffering from every quarter of the Northern mines, as well as of all the broken down and exhausted who came in from the toilsome overland journey. Many of these, at the time they arrived within the province of medical aid, were entirely beyond the reach of its benefits. Most of them, too, were equally devoid of the means to command the commo...
