A place of considerable importance at one time, but at present is striving hard to conquer that fate which promises to inaugurate a retrograde movement in her action.  The country surrounding it, however, still recognizes it as the entrepot, and it may possibly assume its former activity before a great while.  The branch penitentiary is under course of construction here, and, when completed, may be a factor of great advantage to its prosperity.  Population about 1500.  Distant from Sacramento 22 miles.
