A Tucson dispatch from Dragoon Summit says the Indians, about 100 strong, crossed the track there on Tuesday morning, their trail leading directly towards' Cochise's stronghold, which is aboift 14 miles westerly from Tombstone. The cavalry were in close pursuit and late that evening were within less than a mile of the hostiles. It is feared that they will escape into Mexico. There arc about 400 Mexi-can-trpops on the line which if notified in time, can easily intercept them. Delineations of Deglutition. "You see," said Bates, as he and The Astoeiax reporter sat down to breakfast, "there's a good deal of dif-1 ference in the way different people eat at these restaurants." So there is, and it's a study to note the various phases of human nature. A man comes in who simply wants a cup of coffee," and having swallowed it, steps quickly out; then comes a little man who glances scornfully around and asks the waiter "what'ye got?" Hav ing had his curiosity satisfied, he ex tracts a bunch of papers, etc., from his side pocket, and looking to see if you note what a man of business he is, con3 and notes them carefully till the arrival of his breakfast. All through that matutinal meal he paws at the victuals and sips furtively at the fluids, all the time keeping his eye riveted on a letter or a column of figures by his plate, as though it had charmed him. Having practically ex hibited how time can be economized at a sacrifice of health and comfort he runs his hands through his hair, jabs his documents into his pocket and achieves a rocket flight through the door. Next comes a married man who hastens to explain his unmarital conduct to a friend, and immediately falls to eating what is set before him without a murmur. Ho sazes on the waiter as if contrasting tho usual with the occasional and manifests a lively interest in the whereabouts of that important individual. The door opens with a -bang and closes with a dam, and a man comes in who immediately orders everything in the house and finds fault with it, yet keep3 on eat ing and finally goe3 out in a paroxys mal fit of wheezing. And then comes one of "the bo's," a little shaky but otherwise in good condition. A brief conversation ensues as to whether the eggs shall be shirred or poached, and this being settled with a parting ad monition as to the nature and quality of the toast, he gazes languidly out of the window meditating, probably, on the mutability of luitnan events, and wondenncc if he had only been lucky enough to fill when he called Pete, instead of only having two pairs against Pete's pat flush, how different it might have been. Then comes a quaintly-acting individual from the outside, who looks with interest at all around, and, depositing his hat under his chair, goes quietly and S3'stemati cally to work Having finished, he picks up the aforesaid hat, extracts therefrom a huge handKerchief,!ooks at it earnestly as if identifying lost prop erty, blows a blast upon his nose, re places his handkerchief in the hat, and the hat on Ills head, and departs in peace. Breakfast and lunch time begin to merge. Bates wipes oil" his chin and saya 'tis time to go. We co incide, and, yet, last evening, strolling homeward in the floating gloaming, thought it might not be amiss to Mote what Bates said. NEW TO-DAY. FOR PORTLAND. FAST TIME.
