Chinese Camp, Tuolumne County, PO 11 miles south of Sonora, is a small town on the west bank of Wood's Creek, connected by sage with Sonora and Jacksonville. Formerly it was a busy mining town, but that interest, in this locality, is now mostly abandoned to the Chinese, while the white population have turned their attention to fruit growing, farming, and stock-raising. Being on several routes of travel, it shows some business life. Stages from Milton and Oakdale, the termini of the Stockton and Copperopolis, and Stockton and Visalia Railroads, 27 miles distant, pass Chinese Camp enroute to the Big Trees of Calaveras, and to Yosemite Valley. These, with the mines of the surrounding country, gives the place considerable trade.

Coloma, El Dorado County, PO 10 miles north west of Placerville. It is distinguished in the history of California as the place where gold was first discovered, by Marshall, in 1848, inaugurating a new era in the business of the world. This was for a number of years an exceedingly prosperous mining locality, but subsequently, as the rich placers became exhausted, every available spot of ground was planted with trees and vines. The fruit and wines produced have obtained a world-wide celebrity, and the inhabitants enjoy a very comfortable prosperity. Coloma is pleasantly situated on the south side of the American River, on the stage-road from Auburn, on the railroad to Placerville. It is also reached from Sacramento via the Sacramento Valley Railroad and stage from Shingle Springs. Coloma is a quiet rural village, showing little of the life and bustle of early days, but it is regarded as a favorite place of residence to those located there.
