SIGNOR D'ALVEAR'S GOLDOMETER,
THE GOLD SEdiEl'S. GUIDE!
Scut Art_Of finding llin'cs of Gold,
Sni . l r, Ireu, Lead, Copp'es, Coal,
mid Oilier ,
The first discovery of Gold in California
was made by DON JOSE D'A LVEAR, an
eminent Spanish Geologist, Chemist and
Nationl Philosopher, by means of a newly
invented Magnetic irr,trotnent, eallett -
The Coldometer, or Gold SeehersGoldel •
D'Alvear has just arrived at New
. 1% rk; nom the Gold regions of California,
by way of Panama, Chugres, and New Or-
leans. twinging, with him a very large quan
tity of Gold ore, valued at nearly one mil
lion of Dollars, which he collected there,
long before the existence afire Gold mines
became known to the reshkuts of Caliktr
History Of the Diseotey.
Signor D'Alvear went out to California
nearly two years ago, in consequence of
certain information which he had received
of the geological character of that country,
with the firm belief that vast mines of pre
cious metals would be revealed there, upon
carelul investigation. He was encouraged
in this enterprise,aiso. by his confidence in
the powers of a certain Magnetic instru
ment which he had invented, called the
"Goldometer" by whose aid he expected to
he directed at once to the "Gold Placers,"
if any such existed. Nor were his expec•
otions disappointed. His scientific calcu
lations proved to be founded in truth and
profound wisdom. and his new instrument,
the •'Goldometer,' fulfilled his highest hones.
In less than two months after reaching Cal
ifornia, he struck upon one of the richest
gold mines in ' that country, upcn an ob
scure branch of the Sacramento river, in
a gorge of hills extremely rocky and diffi
cult of access' and seldom visited by the na
tive Californians. Disguising his object
under the pretence of purely scientific le:
sea eh, he obtained the and of some fif t e e n
or twenty simple and faithful Indians, and
steadily pursued his task, collecting often
more tban $3.000 worth of gold in a single
.I;:v.' which Ire concealed in a deep ravine,
with or exciting any suspicion whatever,
neill after the discovery of gold at Capt.
Sutter's Mill. when the mountains were ran
..arked by gold s,ekors, and Signor D'Ai
rear'• p;acer," the richest in all Cal
ifornia. was beset with greadv adventurers.
It i-m w found that the•real mines or soul - -
ei , of the go2d,lie in the gorges of the moth
'sins, and not in the beds of sands of the
rivers. Previous to leaving California,
iennr D'A %Tat sold his instrument: the
Goldcmeier, a very imperfect one, for 000
Th e p erson who purchased it-confidently
expected - 1n make a handsome fortune, by
simply finding "gold placers" and selling
out the right of digging to the gold work
31anufacture of the Coldenieter, and Publi
calico of the Guide.
'Signor D'Al year, in compliance with the,
request of nuie4ous scientific gentlemen,
has commenced the manufacture of his new
Magnetic Instrnment, theGOLDOMF.TER
which he alow offers for •ale, in the United
State , , at the rematlial ly low price of
TUREE DOLLAIIS each, accompanied
by full in,trnctions for use, and a variety
