April 12.—An authentic report has reached this city that Mexican' soldiers under Lieut.

The soldiers, 200 strong, met the Indians in a defile of the Nurds Ulancos, There were a large number of Indians, just how many could not be determined. The engagement lasted eight hours, when the Indians dispersed through the mountains, leaving the soldiers masters of the situation. This is the way the Yaquis fight, and it makes them formidable adversaries. They will rise up in large numbers and when closely pursued every one becomes his own commander and takes to the briish. They are brave and seldom refuse to fight soldiers when equal in numbers. The fighting forces of Mexicans have sent for reinforcements when they will pursue the renegades further into the mountains. places in this county say that both shocks wore severe.
