Forest City, Sierra County, PO 7 miles south of Downieville, is reached by stage from the Central Pacific Railroad, at Colfax, via Nevada, North San Juan and Camptonville.

In the flush times of placer mining, Forest City was one of the richest and most prominent towns, some of the claims, as the Live Yankee, producing fully a million dollars each to their owners, but the capital extracted, as usual, in mining camps, sought the valleys, the cities, or the East for investment, and every interest in the mountains was left to decay. By great toil and privation further developments were made, and recently capital has been attracted to the deep gravel ridges, the most prolific, and under good management the surest sources of wealth in the world. The late opening of the Bald Mountain claim, in the Forest City district, has greatly revived business, and the lively times of former days may be expected to return. This mine was opened by a party of working miners, at a cost of about $20,000, and several years toil, and in the year 1874 produced $328,000, of which about half was disbursed in dividends. The pay stratum is three feet in thickness of blue gravel on the bedrock, containing about $25 per cubic yard, the superincumbent mass of over four hundred feet in depth being composed of strata of gravel, pipe clay, volcanic lava, and alluvium, the pay stratum only being drifted out. From the amount worked and explorations made, the amount remaining in the claim is calculated at $7,000,000. About 100 men are employed in and about the mine. Other mines are also worked.

Fort Yuma, San Diego County, PO address, Yuma, Arizona Territory, 195 miles east of San Diego, in the extreme southeastern corner of the State. The fort, or a camp of soldiers, was established here in 1849, while the country on the opposite side of the river was Mexican Territory. The post is on the right bank of the Colorado, 180 miles from its mouth, directly opposite the mouth of the Gila, and on the great thoroughfare overland bi' the southern route and from the northern States of Mexico. The river is crossed by ferry, and the travel is large. From its position the fort is an important one, though generally occupied by only a few soldiers. Yuma, formerly Arizona City, is on the opposite bank of the river and is a large and growing town. This section, distinguished for having the warmest climate of the United States, is subject to very slight rains, which fall in July and August, but nevertheless is remarkably healthy. The surrounding country is a sandy desert, though when subject to overflow is exceedingly fertile.
