Vol. XLVIII—Whole No. 7390. 4 pp., 17 x 23”, seven columns. Exhibits fold-marks, light chipping on left margin. Else VG plus.

Front page of consists of four columns of advertisements and three of anecdotal news, tiled as follows: “Advices from Sonora—Outrages By apaches”—"Gossip About Grant and Sherman”—“A Young Lady Killed by Her Lover”—“Major George Ferrend Shoots Himself With Pistol”. Also this snippet: “Mrs. Albani, the new operatic bird, says she is mot married, and would not even stand an engagement right.

Interior pages report San Francisco stock sales, along with the following items with a western flavor: “Death From Stabbing”—"Suicide at Chico”—“The Merced Tragedy”—“Serious Affray at San Jose”—“Two White Men Murdered by Piute Indians”—“Trotting Race in Oakland”—“Arrest of a Murderous Hoodlum”—along with numerous news tidbits concerning “Chinamen,” none of them terribly flattering.

In all, a fascinating newspaper glimpse of northern California in the mid-1870s during Grant’s second presidential term on the eve of the Centennial. In protective sleeve, w/white card backing.  [jp]
