Excerpt from The Industries of San Francisco, California: A Review of the Manufacturing, Mercantile, and Business Interests of the Bay City; Together With a Historical Sketch, of Her Rise and Progress

American conquest. The stars and stripes were raised at Yerba Buena next day by Captain Montgomery of the war-sloop Portsmouth. The successful termination of the Mexican war confirmed the Americans in their possession of California.

The first newspaper was published in Yerba Buena, January 9, I847. On. The 3oth of the same month, the name of the place was changed to San Francisco. The population at this time was 469.

Gold was discovered in Coloma, forty-five miles east of Sacramento on the American river, January 19, 1848. James W. Marshall had contracted with Captain John A. Sutter for the construction of a saw-mill, and was engaged with his men in cutting and widening the tail race. The water of the river was allowed to run through the cut. Marshall was examining the mass of debris that had accumulated at the lower end of the race, when the glitter of a bright yellow substance in the water attracted his attention. This when examined and tested, proved to be gold. The news of this discovery spread rapidly and created intense excitement among the white population of the Coast. Then came the great gold fever which extended throughout the world. Thousands braved the perils of trackless deserts to reach the El Dorado of the West, while ships from every quarter of the globe, set sail for the Golden Gate.
