The rapid rate at which Hcattle Is growing »* not no noli"e*L«ic to » reai dent—to whom the progress that ja go ing or» all around him has become a sort of matter of coarae, and every-day af fair— aa to one who fi«ws it after a brief aliff-nce and notes the changes even a few weak* present. There 1a no denying the fact that Seattle is growing at a faster ratio compared with ita present number of inhabitauta than any other town on tbo Coast -1 bonanza a and rich prairie lands to the contrary notwiih standing. I'robably there is no town in the Union relatively more prosperous at the promt time. And the outlook for the future is es pecially encouraging Our oonl is the favorite in the market, ami the facili ties fur supply will ere the ensuing wiuter sets iu be vastly increased. We have for customer* the greatest whole sale consumers on th« coast—if not iu the world—the Pacific Mail Steamship Company of New York, and the Cen tral Pacific Company of California, which embraces almost the entire rail ro.td system of the coast including steam! »out connections. The Han Fran cisco agents ot the P. M 8. S. Co. in formed us that their vessels consumed betwiieti and B,(MM) tons of coal per mouth. This, when freights, wharfage, cost of hauliug etc., at other j»orts, and the duties at foreign mines are considered, can be obtained at our docks cheaper than tin same grade of coal can b« obtain*-;! anywhere else. The fact that we have already estab lished reciprocal commercial relatious with those potent controllers of Pacific commerce is a fact of mottt favorable augury An effect is noticed in the tide of Oregon and " I pper Country" travel that has already Iwen turned through our jtorts. We have assurance from the San Francisco correspondent of the steamship company that their Puget Hound line i* not a temporary arrange, tnent, but one of the things established a permanent institution. Further, it is the intention of the company, iu fu ture, to put on a class of vessels built es pecially for our trade, with a view to the shipping of coal for their Asiatic, Isth mus and other fleets. Two consentient parties arc requisite to reciprocity. lucrcascd and regular facilities of communication aud trans portation have long been tlif great need of our country their lsrk has beeo the chief obstacle to its advancement. Such an accommodation as a tin • of Pacific mail stcsmeni like the Salvador and Dakota, or similar v ess. Is, mnning weekly to our port (as is also contem plated if properly patronized) cannot fail to pour unprecedented wealth in the way of immigration and trade iuto the lap of our city. It rtands ns in stead toextend tosucb a j>oteiit auxiliary to our prosperity all practicable encour agement.

There tscrery indication that the hostile# have Wen heavily reinforced by aginry Indians. They hare their families- and evidently intcud remaining north thia winter. The army has a difficult programme, find It will be al most mirattxloai if tkey succeed in overtaking the savag »■», who art* well mounted. When supplies are exhaust ed, a detachmeut of soldiers will have to return to the supply camp. Gen. Mile*, commanding th*- Fifth Infantry, returned to camp on tho Rosebud on the 12th last., instructed to patrol the river north o! Fort Buford, and inter cept any bauds attempting to cross the Yellowstone moving north; also to con strwt Winter quarter* ut the mouth of the Tongue Hirer for one regiment of infantry. The steamers Far West, Josephine, Carroll, and YV-llowstone have >*eu placed at his disposal, and supplies for the command arc being rapidly shipped up the river from Bu ford. The steamers Far West and Car roll nave been employed patrolling the river. General Miles' command has been reinforced by two companies of the 17th infantry and other troops —giving him a total of about TOO. Terry's supply camp has l>een moved to the mouth of the Tongue River, as a base of supplies during the campaign. The steamers are well guarded and supplied, and the camp is strongly defended. The garrison has three Gntling guns and several Rodman guns, and the steamer Josephine has on hoard three Catling pieces for the garrison. Sharp work may be ex pected on the south bank of the Yel lowstone, before the war ends. A later diapatch, dated August 22d, near the mouth of Powtffer River, says: a practical failure of the campaign, thus far, has caused a change in the plan of operations, anil the Government will now continue the war until the ludians are subdued or return to their reserva tions. It is uow almost assured that the scout* now being made by the Com bined forces of Crook and Terry will be unsuccessful, aud the troops will probably return to the mouth of the Tongue River by the 25th iust The comtuaud will theu refit for another dash, which, it ia supposed, will more successful. Gen. Miles' wiuter quarters will ac commodate 1 "KM) men, and if the troops do not have a successful engagement with th* Indians the 15th of September, that number fcrill probably be left on the Yellowstone for the win ter. The Fifth Infantry under General Miles and the Fifth Cavalry under Geftatn! Merrilt, the two finest regi ment* iu the servMe. will remain iu wiuter quarters, and if necessary addi tional numbers will be kept iu qnar ters, so that the campaign will be ex tended late in tbs season, and if neces sary resumed early in the spring. It is thought ssffietent supplies can be for warded for the troops before winter sets in. The campaign will be full of hard ship but not dangerous, as at otlier sea sons. There are many Indisns sloug the Yellowstone, I Kit every precaution will be taken to keep advised of their movement«. and a fight is hoc improb able. The tro»>j«s will occupy quarters ot Tongtc river by September *Oth A still Inter dispatch, dated August 23d. N4 Bismarck, says that Cmok and Terry, after follow tug the trail discov ered on the fcth, moved thirty-six miles down the Rossbudto the northern trail, which was abandoned on the Uth. aad tie command pursued the southern trail, crossed Tongue river to Go. >ee Creek, thence returned to Pow der rtver, followed it to its mouth, which they reached on the night of the iMh, where they went into oamp and will remain till the 24th. The wagon train aad all the eupfiits, st the mouth of Tongue river, are being shipped to the mouth of Powder river, and it is expected thi wagon train will reach there to morrow morning. The ladun , trail diverged from the east bank of Powdar nter, aU«t twenty miles from its mouth, south again toward Little Horn, whence the ooouuaud will folio* speedily. The entire command is short of stipplie*, and unless otherwise or dered Terry will march such as are not needed to Fort Abraham Lincoln. , Crooks' command will scout toward the Black Hills and r~i Fettermau home. Crook and T*r ry both think it is too late for extended field operations The In dians on the SiHithsrn trad are moving towards the agencies. Terry will if possible intercept them.
