IfiDEPEXDUNCE, Jllly 3. The Sauta Fe mail, with dates to the 18th uit., arrived to-day, making regular schedule time. No rain liad fallen in New Mexico tliis year. The crops are almost entirely dostroyed. There has never been such a scarcity of proviaions and forago in that as at present. Corn is solling at almost any price asked. The troops from Utah are expected about the last of July. Fears are entertained that their arrival must créate a famine. Tlie Navajo Indians are becom ing in solent. Unless thcy are cliastised by troops, they will soen make a foray upon the settlements. But few Indians are seen on the road, some of whom were Kiowas, wlio examined the wagons olosely ; but, as the mail party were well arined and seven in number, uo attaek was made. The troops from Pawnee Fork that went in pursuit of some Indians have uot yet returnod. A rumor at Pawnee Fork of their having fought lacks coniirmation.
