The fight commenced at 8. 46 A M. , and cobtirnel throughout the day Kor four nights pre ceding '.ha attack the town Lad been garrisoned oy the officers and crew of the Decatur. A; 7 o'clock A. M. on the 'iOth ail hands retuined to the ship, but in a very short ' ime word was sent that the town was surrounded by Klikit&ts. The men were Immediately re landed, and the attack commenced by firing a that from the howitzer, which was returned by a volley from the entire rear of the own. the Indians at the same time uttering terrific yells of dtfiance. The firing was continued until 8 P. M., when libdiug that the Icdians could not be driven from tbe woods it was decide.! to settle toe natter in a differ ent way- The women and children wer? sent on bierd tbe Decatur and Brinte*; the citizens and marines were left in charge of to# block house, and the officers and crew returned to the ship. 11. b latteiies were then opened from the Decatur, and grape, caniMer and rounc shot poured upon the Indians .& each uuantitiea that the main body of them retreat ed. After t.lgbtfall shell and shot were thrown wnere etrr any signs of Indians appeared. By 10 P. M. nil was qii iet. It is impoxuible to ascertain the number engaged In tie attack. Thtre are various minors, from woich we gatheT that the Indiana were from seven to nioe hundred Ht/ It Is also rumored that the Indians had 36 kil.ed aid wounded. On the side of the white*, only two weto killed, both civilian*. The Indians ahot too high, the bullets whistling over the heads of our force*. An attack is feared upon Steilacoom, as, a short time be tore the steamer sailed, an express came into tbe gar (Ucn with infatuation that tne Indians bad attacked rone whites about live miles from the garrison. The injury done to the Decatur has oeen repaired, an aLe is now \n good condition. All well on board the De Ofitnr ana A. live when the Itepublic left Seattle. SEATTIi. J*u. 2fl. 1BIW.

The UmI mail from Oregon brought us tbn nevn of the defeat of the Indian*, who had congregated la great forco at W*tfa-Walla. by (be volunteo-s. Slnse thea nothing of importance Iiah occurred. We extract from ?h? Ore <i<mian. the follow lug in relation to tho ntate of aftait* at the earrp: ? We have let'erx from Camp Curry, near Walla- Walta, up to JaD. 5. the volunteers were still encamped near tne battle ground, awaiting the arrival of supplies and to recruit i heir horses preparatory to an advance further Into the enemy's country. The troop* are reproiented an being all in very good health. Some tittle dixaffestion hud sprung up io telation to the command; but this will all become nettled upon the arrival ot the express which lelt fcere on Wednesday last for the camp. Lfeiienaut Wither is tbe hearer o I a commission from Governor Curry to Captain rhomas Cornelius, who was elected (olrnel of the First Regiment of Oregon Mounted Volun* teers. We make no doubt that Colonel Cornelius will at once move forward wtth lils command, and give th1) I nolens battle at Snake river, where they are said to he eucamp td In large force. If he doe* not find them there, he will undoubtedly pursue them until tliey will be compiled to again Bake a stand and give the volunteers a fight Al though ttie force now under command of Colonel Cjrne ilu* is t-ninll ? not over three hundred men? yet, with hu<e, we linve no fears of the result, if they can get a air Held. The troops under commar.l of Colonel C une llu* are veteran Indian fighters. Many of them hove seen considerable servico In that Hne, and have never yet been whipped ? neither can they be by ten times their number of Indians. We learn, also, that a large number of horses and cut* ? le, amounting to seveial hundred hrad, vers recently captured and driven into camp by the Washington and Ynmhlllcovnty companies, but were sutiseiiuently de .tvered up to a hand of (so celled) friendly Indians.
