It left Santa Fee on the 1st inst., and El Paso on the 10th. The Santa Fee papers contain nothing of interest. The Indian depredations about El Paso have ceased to considerable extent. A few days before the arrival of the train, however, they attacked a wagon on the road to the place, and within its vicinity, and riffled it of its contents. No other damage was done. On the route from El Paso thiterward many Indian trails were encountered, and a few flying Indians were descried int eh distance. Mr. WALLACE, the charge of the train, was left unwell at Los Moras. The roads were never in a finer condition or the water in greater profusion.

The train brought in a SLAVE BOY who entered their camp near Los Moras in a starving condition. He belongs to John SWEENY, who lives on the Bernard, some 12 miles distant from Columbia. he is now in our jail.-San Antonio Ledger.
