FAVORA BLX IN DIG ATIOH 8.
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

one band headed north, towards the
British |> j«*t "iont>. with the probable
intention of eroding the line, tue
others going -outh along the Little
Missouri, for the purpose of eroding
the Mi-teouri river about Fort Ikrth
old. 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
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

towards the agencies. Terry will if
possible intercept them. The campaign
