From New Mexico


The Santa Fe mail arrived with advices to the 3d.

The Texans wile retreating met a body of 500 of their men, under Col. Steele, at Adahe Wall, but the whole force continued to retreat.

The first regiment Colorado volunteers with the regulars are at Fort Criag, under command of Col. Paul.

Gen. Canby and Gov. Connelly are at Santa Fe.

Owing to scarcity of provisions, large quantities of which were destroyed to prevent their falling into the hands of the enemy, our troops have been placed on less than half rations, being limited to eight ounces per day.

One hundred and twenty Texan prisoners were passed on the road to Fort Larned.
